    Summary

    Full title: This song is called Straight Knife Through The Heart and is dedicated to my very straight high school crush, Steve Harrington.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Steve has no idea why he ever agreed to attend something called Death Fest. It has no resemblance to any sort of music and he's feeling cranky about it.

    Enter Eddie Munson.

    In Leather Pants.

    (and Steve is maybe embracing a more fluid sexuality)

    Summary

    “I’m not perfect, okay? I’ve never claimed to be, but I try,” His voice broke, left in shambles as he continued. “I try so hard. I have given everyone everything they’ve ever asked of me and I never complained; not really! I could’ve left this town years ago and never looked back, but I didn’t. I stayed because I care about those kids, about Nancy and Robin and you.”

    “Steve,” Eddie started, “I didn’t-”

    “You didn’t what? Notice? Care? Nobody does!” Steve said, throwing his hands up, “I mean, do you how long it’s been since someone said they loved me? Even my parents can’t be bothered to say that shit! I have been waiting years for someone to notice that I"ve changed! That after everything I’ve been through, I’m still here! I’m not some idiot who peaked in high school!”

    Caught in the insufferable silence, all he could do was cry.

    ***

    Or Eddie thinks Steve's confession is a joke, and Steve realizes that nobody really thinks he's changed.

    Summary

    He gets the call and everything is slow motion. He’s barely able to understand what’s happening. The words are mumbled in his brain, he picks them apart like he’s sifting for a needle in a haystack. Claudia Henderson was found dead. Her son is waiting at the police station.

    -------

    Steve becomes Dustin's legal guardian after his mom's death. He's figuring it out along the way with the help of a certain curly-haired metal-head he can't seem to get out of his head.

    Summary

    Eddie hasn't spoken to Gareth and the others since whatever went down with Chrissy Cunningham, now Gareth sees him playing basketball with Steve Harrington and a bunch of kids, what the fuck is going on?

     

    Sinclair sighs longingly.

    “Okay, man, I can get behind you on the sweet and salty,” says Gareth, “but New Coke?”

    “He was crazy for it,” says Harrington, grinning all fond at the back of Sinclair’s head like he’s retelling the story of his toddler’s foray into the world of art and talking Gareth through all the monstrosities in pride of place on the fridge. “Weird kid.”

    Eddie is smiling at the side of Harrington’s face and Jesus Christ, Gareth never wants to meet another gay man in his whole life if their taste is Steve fucking Harrington.

    Summary

    There's a groan of confusion from the hospital bed. Eddie's eyes creak open.

    Wayne and the man with the shotgun freeze as they watch him take in this new development.

    His eyes rove sleepily across each one of them in turn before he yawns widely. "Steve, meet my Uncle Wayne," he says calmly, to a choked noise from the man Wayne now knows as Steve.

    "Wayne, meet my Steve,” He introduces him with a twirl of his fingers. “We're going on a date once I stop pissing blood." He only has enough energy to treat them to a clumsy set of devil horns before his eyes slide shut. “Love you, ‘night.”

     

    Or, the town still considers Eddie to be a murderer, so Steve keeps guard at his bedside as he recuperates. Only the man he pulls a shotgun on ends up being Eddie's uncle. That's certainly one way to meet your future father-in-law.
