    Summary

    “Let’s go out for dinner tonight,” she says, later. “I don’t feel like cooking and I want to drink something out of a pineapple or a coconut or something.”
    “Bev. My man. My best dude. Yes,” Richie replies from where he’s floating a pool noodle. “Pineapple drink. Let’s do that.”
    “I saw a bar near the grocery store that has hermit crab racing,” Mike says over the top of his cozy mystery he borrowed from the front office.
    “Oh, hell yeah,” Richie says, sitting up so fast he overbalances on his noodle and tips face-first into the water. “This is my destiny,” he sputters, sunglasses sliding off his face, “I was born to be Florida Man.”

     

    After Derry, the Losers take Mike to Florida, Bev remembers exactly who she is.

    Summary

    "So, what’s your damage, Eds?” Richie says.

    Eddie blinks down at the walkie. He’s so tired, he’s been hiking all day and it’s only sheer exhaustion that’s keeping him from freaking out about how itchy he feels right now and how he doesn’t see a shower anywhere in here. He scrubs at his eyes and then presses the button again. “Excuse me?”

    “People take this job when they wanna get away from shit,” Richie says casually, like they’re discussing the weather. “So what’s wrong with you?”

    “I — that’s — what the fuck’s wrong with you?” Eddie splutters. He’s way too fucking tired for this. Instinctively, he curls in the fingers of his left hand, running his thumb over the pale band of skin on his ring finger.

    Richie laughs, a scratchy sound that makes Eddie’s chest tighten. “Hey man, maybe I just like trees.”

    --

    Or, Eddie Kaspbrak, newly divorced, takes a summer job as a fire lookout in the Shoshone National Forest, with only the voice on the other end of his walkie talkie to keep him company. Inspired by the video game Firewatch.

    Summary

    It’s like looking through one of those old View-Master toys. Two disparate images merge into a three-dimensional whole: the cute, mouthy guy he met at a hotel bar and the foul-mouthed, fast-talking kid he's just starting to remember.

    Eddie fucking Kaspbrak, half-forgotten one night stand and the absolute love of Richie’s teenage life.

    Or: Richie hooks up with a stranger while he’s on tour. A year later, he walks into the Jade of the Orient and remembers Eddie Kaspbrak.

    Summary

    I’m gay. I don’t have anything deeper to say at the moment. But this was not a late in life discovery, and I’m tired of pretending 

    He wrote the tweet in all of thirty seconds, right there on his phone in bed. And the very first response is a quote retweet from someone with a pride flag in their handle that simply reads,
