  5. Summary





    This series celebrates a variety of ways David and Patrick find each other as pen pals. A group of writer friends, who love when i'm with you it feels like home by Hullomoon, were inspired to create this series in a desperate need to add more pen pal fics to the fandom. The last three in the series are connected and the remainder are unrelated/standalone.

    Summary

    Eddie gives a sarcastic little ta-da when he blows out the candles, which his three friends respond to with rapturous applause. Robin asks what he wishes for, and he insists that he can’t tell them because it won’t come true. In reality, he can’t tell them because there seem to be so many: wishing for the calls to stop, wishing for something to happen between him and Steve, wishing for something to make him feel like this forever.

    ---

    Eddie turns 30 and 20 and 35, and starts to build a home.

    Summary

    It would be too kind to say Jack Zimmermann, Pulitzer Prize winner and son of legendary newspaper publisher Bob Zimmermann, resigned in disgrace mere days before the biggest story of his life broke without his name on the byline. But somehow it seems slightly less bad than the truth, which is that Jack was fired, by his own father, for getting too close to a source, blowing his chance at breaking the story he’d been working on for six months, and compromising the paper’s integrity as a purveyor of unbiased journalism, all in one fell swoop.

    Now he's starting over, reporting small town news out of an inn in Vermont and trying not to get too close to anybody. A certain baker might make that difficult.

    Summary

    It’s 1991 and Steve is still in Hawkins, still living with his mother, still single, and still working at Family Video. At least he’s the manager now, for whatever that’s worth. But he’s stuck here while Robin and Dustin and everyone else have moved away. Moved on.

    Well, everyone except for Eddie.

    They're best friends, spend most of their time together, and it's nice to have a friend like that. But Steve is still looking for love with a capital "L". At least, he thinks he is.
