    Summary

    But now he remembers his childhood, and the fierceness of all the emotions he felt back then — love most of all. Love was a blood oath, it was Bev handing him the fencepost that could kill monsters, it was what made him throw that fencepost into Its gaping maw to save Richie from the deadlights.

    When it comes to what love feels like for Eddie, it’s always been — different, with Richie. He loves all of his friends with all of his heart, but Richie has burrowed in deeper, somehow, and if Eddie were a more dramatic or poetic man he might say he loves Richie in his bones, in his soul. But he isn’t, so he doesn’t say that, even if he maybe thinks it a little bit and feels ridiculous.

    --

    Or, after killing It and returning to New York, Eddie decides to make a change.

    Summary

    “You’re so tiny you’d need like half a hit to get high.”

    “Fuck you,” is all Eddie can get out before he’s sitting up again. He looks out over the small circle of his friends, the warm light from Mike’s camping lantern spilling out over them. The shadows seem a little bit deeper, the pattern on Bev’s fleece is a little more interesting, the warmth of Richie’s shoulder near his calf is a little more present. He swallows once, twice, and then sighs a soft, “Oh.”

    Summary

    Eddie makes another noise, not quite a scream but not anything else either.

    Stan drops his hand.

    “Hey, Eddie,” he says. “Welcome to the peanut gallery. I wrote you a letter, but I guess you won’t get it now.”

    (Or, Eddie and Stan stick around as ghosts after they die. Unable to make themselves known to the other Losers, they have to find other ways to communicate.)
