  1. Summary

    One-shots exploring different POVs and missing scenes in 'The Cruel Prince'. All titles taken from 'My Enemy', by CHVRCHES, ft. Matt Berninger. The focus is therefore on dynamics that have some element of bitterness, anger, rivalry etc. Luckily, that includes basically every dynamic in the book! Canon-compliant, at least for now...

    Summary

    Sometimes, when she lets herself really think about him (miss him) she is so freaking insulted that he never asked her to go with him. They would’ve made an amazing team. Not that she would’ve said yes. But it would have felt good to have been asked. It would’ve stopped her from constantly wondering how he couldn't.

    Summary

    Steve is (maybe) a little bit still in love with Nancy Wheeler and (maybe) trying to figure himself out-- between the night terrors and the babysitting and the general weirdness that is Hawkins, Indiana-- before he graduates.

    Billy Hargrove fits in there somewhere (probably).

    Summary

    ‘So,’ Tommy says around a mouthful of fries, ‘what the fuck is the deal with you and Hargrove?’

    And that’s really the goddamn question, isn’t it?

    He wants to know Billy. Wants to know why he is the way he is. Wants to be able to figure out what the fuck he’s thinking when he looks at Steve like that, when he touches him like it doesn’t mean shit and like it means everything all at once. Wants to know why he talks so much shit, why he needs to fight, where all that fire comes from. Why he’s so volatile, why he’s such an asshole, how he can be so fucking mean and so fucking sweet in the span of seconds, at the same time, even.
