    Summary

    On April 2nd, inside the Hargreeves' mansion, Five spits out of the time vortex, after rewinding time for the nth time that day.

    Crashing harshly, Five staggers up, snatches the shotgun, teleports right behind the old man, Reginald Hargreeves -

    Lines up the shotgun right against his head.

    "Let my family go."

    The entire Sparrow Academy falls eerily silent. The whole battle abruptly ends.

    Five ignores the blood streaming down the side of his forehead, ignores how part of it trickles into his left eye.

    ...Ignores how his heart is thudding so erratically in his chest from the overexertion of his powers, how his knees are threatening to collapse, to dry heave all the blood crawling up his throat before passing out -

    Five grits his teeth and ignores it all. Everything was irrelevant, everything, except how he could get his family out alive.

    It all went to shit the moment they teleported with the briefcase.

    Summary

    “Love is worth the sum of itself, and nothing more.”
    ― Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic

    Steve learned a lot at his Aunt's side before she passed but his favourite thing she taught him was baci d'aria; special little spells that you created from the heart and put into the food you shared.

    In opening his heart and gifts to those around him Steve slowly finds himself a family in a way he never thought he'd get to experience. One by One he collects pre-teens to trail in his wake like ducklings and Steve can't even refute it by the time he realizes what has happened.

    Summary

    Steve's changed quite a bit since that day he adopted six kids. At least, he'd like to think so. So when Carol and Tommy go through another "break-up" stage, and some creeps are eyeing his former friend, there is no way he is going to let them touch her. It starts with Carol, protecting her and shielding her from a bunch of creeps. But it just keeps going after that.

    Summary

    When Steve sees Eleven again, he wants to cry.

    _

    Steve Harrington was raised in Hawkins Lab, and he's spent the past six years trying his best to forget. It doesn't matter that he can stop time with his mind or that most nights he wakes up screaming. He's Steve, not Seven. He's moved on.

    Or at least he thought he had, until the little sister he thought was dead shows up.

    Summary

    Making a will at eighteen seems incredibly morbid. The lawyer stares at him long and hard the entire time. She acts like he's contagious, like she might catch her death from him or maybe he'll ruin her rug by dropping dead in her office. Steve figures she has nothing to worry about. If anything's going to kill him, it's probably going to be a monster from the Upside Down.

    -

    In which Steve hunts monsters, becomes a deputy, makes a will, and finds a family. Among other things.
