    Summary

    "I would never make fun of you." Mike reassures him, moving slightly towards him and holds out a hand for him to take. "You've been my best friend for over a decade, Will. I wasn't trying to prove a point or anything like that. What I've been trying to tell you is that… that I care for you so much. And that I need you. To be honest, I think I always had and always will." He pauses for a moment, before adding, "Is that okay?"

    "Yeah." Will answers as quickly as possible, too afraid of missing the opportunity. "Of course it's okay, Mike."

    Summary

    Will burst into one of the most blinding, dazzling smiles Mike had ever seen. It wouldn't matter if they were on the darkest, cloudiest night in the middle of the ocean; Will was a beacon of light. Mike couldn't tell if there were actual stars in his eyes or if it was just a reflection, but it didn't matter. Will was too stunningly beautiful, and that look was too intense, and he had to look away as his stomach turned and his brain tried to come up with a generic response to whatever Dustin was saying on the radio. The past few weeks he had been desperately trying to convince himself that it was just his old crush rearing it's head. He had moved on from Will, really. They could be friends again without all the relationship drama that came between them in highschool. But sitting on the top of a hill on a cold November night he realized nothing had changed at all.

    Fuck, he was still madly in love with Will Byers.
    ...
    After graduating, both Mike and Will struggled to adjust to life after the Upside Down. It didn't help they had already drifted apart. But now, 8 years later, Mike finally reached out again, and the 2 struggle to rebuild their friendship while also hiding their romantic feelings for each other.

    Summary

    ‘okay,’ he responds— pleasantly okay with the fact he’ll be alone, with Richie– Oh my god, that’s so creepy. He reflects on his feelings; he just met Richie like, a day ago. “Why? You wanna be alone with me?” Richie chirps, clicking his tongue towards the finish and Eddie groans, disgusted.

    He did it again– that thing. He read his mind again, it was so odd. Could he really see through Will? He gulped nervously, pushing down his feelings along with it, “Shut up,” Will manages to choke out.

    or: Will moves to Derry instead of Lenora and he meets Richie Tozier, a boy who's different like him.

    Summary

    Mike sighs, looking down at his hands. "I always thought I would end up with someone more similar to me, you know? Someone I can talk about, like, hobbies and music and stuff with, without them visibly losing interest halfway through.”

    You have more in common with him than El, says the voice in Will’s head. He wonders, briefly, whether it would be weird to shove his face back into the pillow and scream.

    Will is definitely not qualified to be giving out any relationship advice. For one, he's never actually dated anyone before. Second, one of the people in said relationship is his sister. And third, the other person is the guy he's sort of in love with. There's no possible way this could backfire. Right?

    Summary

    Eleven walked to the door of the supply closet and reached for the handle.
    Should she pull it open…? No. Peter told her to wait. Peter was strong, and she needed to trust him. He would come back. He wouldn’t leave her behind.
    Would he?
    ...
    Or: A canon divergent story exploring how Will’s life would be different if Eleven left the Lab with Henry after the massacre, and he raised her instead of Brenner.

    Summary

    If Will had been paid attention to by the writers, he could've had a really good relationship with Max and Robin.

    In turn, these friendships would have given him the confidence to actually live in Lenora, not just exist there.

    In this fic, Will makes a friend in California, and learns how to be 'Will', instead of 'Will Byers, the kid that disappeared that one time'.

    Purely indulgent for me, but I really do think Will is worth so much more than what is shown, so this follows the life that he could have had.

    ---

    This will see Byers family domesticity and growth, Will getting a makeover, Mike and El having a healthy relationship, Byler endgame, slight Elmax, and the Party being the Party again.

    Summary

    Teenagering is hard, especially after nearly two years of fighting interdimensional monsters and having their lives turned upside down by the Upside Down. Now Will and El face their most daunting adventure yet -- the ups and downs of puberty, navigating high school and making friends in a new town, and a journey of self discovery that leads them to a place neither of them ever imagined. And they might even stumble across Hop along the way.
    (a.k.a the AU Season 4 Wileven story no one but me seemed to need, so I decided to write it myself!)

    I'm building a playlist on Spotify: Listen Here

     -- UPDATING HAS FINALLY RESUMED! --
    I was really hoping to finish this story before S4 dropped, but I just couldn't make it happen. But I have been writing every day for weeks now trying to get this thing complete. I'm not quite done, but close enough to start dropping chapters with reasonable frequency. So looking forward to bringing this AU tale to its conclusion soon!
