    Summary

    “Man, I didn’t know you cared so much, Harrington.” See. Always with the jokes. His voice is hoarse, gravelly. Steve stands straight again, looking at him through the tears. He’s smirking, in that flirty way he did in the RV. “You look like shit.”

    Despite himself, Steve chuckles and quickly flips him the bird.

    “I thought you were in a coma.” Steve says simply, tears still rolling down his face. He doesn’t know how to stop them. Feels like they’ll never stop.

    “I woke up this afternoon. You going to stand there all night, or you gonna come and sit down?” Eddie tilts his head towards the chair next to his bed. Steve is scared. Doesn’t want to get to close. Doesn’t want to hurt him. But he goes anyway. He drops down in the chair, struggling to look Eddie in the eyes. Settles on staring at the bed instead. Elbows propped against it, fists balled under his chin.

    “Yeah, you’re not looking to great yourself, you know.” Steve tries at a smile, not sure if he achieves it, but he feels Eddie brighten. Doesn’t see it. Still can’t look.

    “They said you patched me up good, Stevie. You saved my life.” He laughs to himself. “Who’d have thought it, eh? King Steve crying over Eddie the Freak.”

    Summary

    Second Part to ~~ It's the Start of Our Journey?

    Steve and Eddie find themselves going down different paths. Yet, somehow, they still look for each other in a crowd.
    Eddie watches as Steve comes to school with bruises. How he leaves his friends and then how he becomes a babysitter. But he can’t approach him, not this time. Because it was Steve’s fault, they were apart.
    Steve watches as Eddie moves on and laughs with his friends as Steve learns monsters aren’t always people. He finds himself alone most of the time and hates himself the longer time goes on. At least he has Nancy, right?

    Summary

    After Steve presents as an Omega, his parents are horrified. After going through his first heat at 15, he is immediately put on the strongest heat repressors and scent blockers money could buy. His parents insisted to everyone around that they had berthed a wonderful Alpha child, and everyone believed it- Steve was confident and outgoing, and on top of that a natural leader. However, his image soon comes apart through countless tumbles with the upside down, becoming a better person, and just not letting his parents control him anymore.

    -~|~-

    Steve growled, a low gravelly sound due to his vocal cords being completely wrecked. "Munson, if you don't go the fuck away right now things will get ugly," he says through gritted teeth.

    "Ugly for who, pretty boy?" Eddie says as he steps closer, Steve pushing himself even further into the rock behind him. "Because right now all I see is an omega who needs to talk, and who am I to deny that to our lovely King Steve?" He crouches down in front of Steve, an impish smile tugging at his lips. "So, whaddaya say?"

    Summary

    Steve is struggling with nightmares post-Vecna. He needs someone to talk to, but he gets too in his head about not wanted to worry anyone. He knows that everyone else is going through their own shit, and it doesn't feel fair to burden anyone with his own anxiety issues. On a walk to clear his head after a bad dream, he runs into none other than Eddie Munson. Sure, the two of them had definitely gotten closer while they were saving the world, but something about this run-in with Eddie seems different. It makes Steve feel things he hadn't felt since Nancy. After saving the world, you would think Steve would be able to handle anything. But his sexuality crisis and newfound feelings for Eddie is something way more confusing and daunting than the Upside Down had ever been.

    Summary

    Steve’s life wasn’t supposed to end up like this. At 21, he’s still living at home and wasting precious brain cells at Family Video. His parents are teetering on the edge of divorce, his douchebag of a brother is visiting. And Nancy Wheeler is totally, 100 percent out of his league.

    Enter Robin and Eddie, back in town from Chicago – along with their surprisingly cute friend, Charlie. One lakeside catastrophe and a broken-down car later, Steve finds himself in the orbit of this lightning bolt of a girl. And suddenly, life doesn’t seem to suck as much.

    A story about summertime nostalgia, the chaos of chosen family, and finding something to believe in again.

    Summary

    If you had asked Steve Harrington five years ago what he would be doing after high school, he would have believed wholeheartedly that he would be following in the path his father laid out before him. At age 20, however, Steve found himself breaking free of the mould he had been raised to fit.
    His closest friends were a bunch of nerdy children he babysat, the girl he had thought he was going to marry had broken up with him (and he was glad she did), he had been rejected from every university he applied to, he was working a minimum wage job, and he was fresh off the back of his third near-apocalypse.
    With the Spring Break of '86 on the horizon, Steve can't help but let himself feel hopeful. After all, how much worse can things get?

    or

    Stranger Things 4, but Steve is an active protagonist who finds himself falling in love with Eddie Munson, of all people, as the world begins to end yet again.

    or or

    The characters of Stranger Things rewritten with (hopefully) realistic emotional responses to their trauma, growth, communication (except for when they're idiots), and agency.

    Summary

    Steve and Eddie were in the same year. They knew of each other. But one day they're paired up in Chemistry. It makes Eddie realize that Steve Harrington is doing his best in school. He’s just not a good reader. And when Eddie starts talking to Steve, it makes Steve realize the reason his stomach flips when he sees Eddie means he’s not as straight as he once thought.

    Pre Season one but will follow the canon timeline.

    This is part one of a three-part series. So even though it says complete, it is not a finished story. Check the series to know for sure.

    Summary

    It was the summer of ‘86, Vecna was gone and everyone had survived. Steve Harrington was ready for things to get back to how they should be. Give him his annoying kids, and boring job, and only occasional nightmares. He wanted Robin to stop acting stranger than usual, he wanted to stop being afraid of his too empty house, he wanted to feel normal. But Eddie Munson was the opposite of normal. He’s loud, and confusing, and (for some reason) always around. And the more Eddie started worming his way into his life, the more Steve found himself forgetting exactly what was so great about life before. Maybe those normal, and boring, and Eddie-less days weren’t what he wanted at all.

    Summary

    “How about I help you? Give you pointers,” he clapped, “Your wingman?”

    “You, Henderson, want to be my wingman?”

    The flame's glow was only kissing Steve’s side. His cheeks, hair strands, and down his legs bathed in warmth. And Eddie couldn’t help but sigh dreamily at the sight.

    Maybe he could take that risk. Maybe it was worth the risk.

    “Fine,” Eddie outstretched a hand towards Dustin, “You got a deal”

    or.

    Dustin discovers Eddie has a crush on Steve and tries to be his wingman but he's clumsy/not subtle and every time he tries to pull an antic to get them together Steve is just confused and Eddie is dying of embarrassment

    Summary

    Summer. 1986. Hawkins

    When the gang approach Steve with ideas for a summer road trip, and Eddie wants to go to some big heavy metal festival in California, Steve ends up renting a Winnebago and mentally preparing for two and a half weeks of absolute torture.

    Maybe two weeks of abstinence is the perfect opportunity Steve and Eddie need to actually talk about whatever is going on between them.

    Maybe having to share a confined space with 6 teenagers and Eddie for two weeks will give Steve enough time to sort out his frazzled brain and ask Eddie out on a date or something...

    Summary

    I’ve done things that I can very surely say no one else has ever done in their lives.
    By that I mean go into the upside-down multiple times and survive, fight monsters that people would go crazy if they even saw them, plus be the unofficial babysitter for 6 little heathens?
    Let’s not even mention the Russians.
    Maybe it’s my ego or maybe it’s how I chose to cope, but right now, surrounded by people, I feel the most out of place.
