    Summary

    “Richie. Richie, it’s me,” he whispers, so softly that it’s almost a figment of his imagination. “Hey, it’s Eddie. I’m Eddie. I’m okay, Rich, and you’re okay, so just… please, stop saying shit like that. You’re—you’re scaring me.” He says that part like he’d rather do anything but admit such a thing. But then, as his eyes dart over Richie’s face, his expression shifts, the usual constipation twisting into something close to hysteria that he tries and fails to mask with outrage. “And stop shaking me, shitbag! I had to claw my way out of a fucking disaster zone and I’m really sore—”

    Richie doesn’t know how he knows it, that this is the one and only Eddie Kaspbrak, truly here in the flesh, but he does. Because it’s as if the piece of him that'd been unceremoniously ripped away has miraculously been sewn back into place, worn and faded and uneven and maybe the wrong way around, but still very much present.

    “Eddie,” Richie chokes, and the man he loves with all his heart is standing right in front of him, alive, and there’s no way he could make himself think otherwise.

    [Or: Stan lives, Eddie gets resurrected, the Losers visit Georgia, and Richie gets everything's he's ever wanted (plus more).]

    Summary

    Richie has been feeling like there's a missing piece in his life, especially when he's with the rest of the Losers. One day, while walking on Neibolt Street on his way back home, he sees a shooting star and decides to make a wish: he wants a friend all for himself, someone he doesn't have to share with the rest of the world.
    Days later, pushed by a force Richie doesn't understand, he decides to go back to the house and explore it: he finds a heavily damaged life-size doll that looks startingly like a boy his own age. With the help of the Losers, he manages to clean it and replace some parts, but finds no way to activate the mechanism inside its chest. Nothing works, until...until he wakes up from where he fell asleep working on the doll, and finds it staring right back at him. Looking very alive and very sentient.

    Or: Richie is lonely, Eddie is an automata rotting away in Neibolt House, and the Turtle decides to play matchmaker in a very unorthodox way.

    Summary

    He has a crush on Eddie.

    He thinks.

    It’s weird, because he didn’t used to like Eddie, and he doesn’t really know when he started to. But thinking about it now, it’s undeniable that that’s what it is—a crush. He looks at other boys, like Bill and Stan, and thinks about how he wants to be like them. He looks at their shoulders and hips and waists and he wishes his looked like theirs. He looks at Eddie’s and thinks about how much he’d like to put his hands there.

    --

    A story about coming to terms with your gender and sexuality, and never getting over your middle school crush.

    Summary

    Richie knows a lot of things after running out on Stan's funeral. He knows he can't stand the clawing sympathy of his friends, no matter how well-meaning. He knows Patty Uris is trying to piece together the circumstances leading to her husband's sudden suicide. He knows Stan remembered more than the rest of them about what happened in Derry. He knows the turtle is dead.

    Oh, and he knows there is a time portal in the back of a diner in Lisbon Falls.

    (Yes, this is the 'Richie and Patty team up and yell at Maturin' fic I've been promising to write for a solid 2 months now.)

    Summary

    As much as it pains him to say it, Eddie has to admit that every time the losers reunited (plus Patty and Audra,) something bad happened. Usually, it was something small, like a flat tire, or a forgotten wallet.

    But occasionally, something along the lines of pure bullshit happens, like that one time they went hiking and were chased by a real ass wendigo.

    Staring at the losers club from 29 years ago shaking in their sneakers, though, was another level of mind-fuckery.

    OR,
    the losers just try to have a good time and get their hopes crushed by their younger-selves.

    similarly, the day Beverly is set to leave Derry for good, the losers are sent 29 years into the future. Thanks, you ugly space-turtle.

    Summary

    “Hey, Mr. Tozier,” Eddie’s voice (and it is Eddie’s voice) says, “makeup wants you in fifteen.”

    Richie’s head jerks upward so fast it’s a wonder he doesn’t accidentally break his own neck.

    or: a deal is made, and Eddie and Stan come back. unfortunately, there's a catch. now the Losers have two seeming lookalikes on their hands, and Richie has to deal with a PA on the set of his new show who looks and acts just like Eddie Kaspbrak, but with tattoos.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when Eddie lays in bed at night, he can hear his own heart beating, loud, louder than it’s supposed to be, like a drum pounding right inside his ears, throb--throb--throb, and it keeps him awake, leaves him lying there bloodshot and unnerved. He used to think he was dying when it happened, like really dying, having a heart attack or something.

     

     

    Now he just wonders if it’s his body trying to remind him, Hey, kid. You’re alive. Remember?

     

    ----

    Or, Eddie Kaspbrak finds his way home.

    Summary

    When Eddie died, everything had clicked into place. For once, he'd been brave enough. For a moment, Richie had gotten to hold him.

    Now Eddie's back. Some mysterious force has lifted him out of the ground and set him back on his feet, and he's going to have to learn to walk on his own for once. Meanwhile, Richie is still mourning, because he's always known better than to hope.

    Also featuring: the turtle's attempts at therapy, an ill-advised stint as a telephone operator, the most awkward coming out in history, the Lumberjacks Olympic Pine-a-Thon, and some George Romero shit.

    Summary

    “Maybe there aren't any such things as good friends or bad friends - maybe there are just friends, people who stand by you when you're hurt and who help you feel not so lonely. Maybe they're always worth being scared for, and hoping for, and living for. Maybe worth dying for too, if that's what has to be. No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart.”

    Summary

    "What the fuck," Richie says, loudly. At the telltale crack of a prepubescent voice he says again, louder, "What the fuck!"

    Summary

    “You need to wake up now,” Stan says softly. “This isn’t real.”

    “I know, but I can’t,” Richie sobs. “I don’t want to be here.” Not again. Never again. It is dead, why is It still haunting him?

    Stan fixes him with one of those looks of his, the one where he can see his every thought as if it were written on his face. “That’s not true, Trashmouth.”

    Alternatively: We all know Richie gets caught in the Deadlights, but do we really know what happens after?

    Summary

    Bev told him in the murky hours between defeating Pennywise and his alcohol tainted memories of the night that proceeded about her experience in her old apartment.

    “It was so weird,” she’d said, confusion writ in her tired features. “She’d - he’d said ’no one who dies here ever really dies’. I think he was taunting me, ya know?”

    Richie did know, thought for sure that it had been nothing more than a way of throwing in Bev’s face that they hadn’t killed It as kids. It had a tendency to be rather predictable in it’s reasoning, almost childlike in the taunts It made. Hindsight twenty twenty, maybe they’d both underestimated what It was saying.

    Richie buys a phone that can call the afterlife. Eddie’s never been more thankful that Richie’s a stubborn asshole.

    Summary

    But as he left his fantastic bathroom after taking a relaxing bath in his spa-like tub, he suddenly felt a tug inside his guts as his blurry sight caught a short figure from the corner of his eyes. Richie calmly reached for his glasses by the short dresser and froze when a familiar face came into his view after putting them on—a kid who definitely didn’t belong here.

    Not here, as in this house.

    Here, as in this fucking year.

    Summary

    Richie took a deep breath. He watched his face in the mirror, watched as his nostrils flared a bit when he breathed in through his nose, watched as his pupils shifted in size as they adjusted to the early morning light of his bathroom. He puffed up his chest, putting his hands on his hips, then let his stance loosen.

    It was officially a month since he left Derry.
