    Summary

    “Each time he had watched Mike’s shoulders embrace El’s and his hands caress hers, he felt his body run ill. He would stand there, withered, as his chest physically ached and his fingers trembled, symptoms of what could only be described as lovesick. Truly and mercilessly lovesick.

    Seven years ago, he had decided only distance could be the cure. Hundreds of miles of distance.”
     
    It’s December 1993 when, in the wake of Lonnie Byers’ untimely death, Will finds himself returning to Hawkins for the first time in years—a morose husk of the person he once was.

    When he reconnects with his old childhood party, he begins to bridge the severed, fragile ties between him and a certain ex-best friend. As they struggle to piece together the tender remains of their shattered friendship, Will wonders if they have truly grown an irreconcilable distance apart, or alternatively, if they can rekindle something far better than fifteen-year-old him could have ever imagined.

    Summary

    “Am I hard to read?” Mike asks, his tone harsh and his grip on Will’s wrist harsher, “I’m hard to read?”

    How can you tell if someone has a crush on you when they're hard to read? Will had claimed. And it ticked Mike off because who else could he possibly be referring to? How many other hard to read people has he been in love with? No, scratch that, how many people has Will been in love with at all?

    Mike has known him all his life.

    And he has some nerve trying to paint Mike as the villain; as if he hasn't been sitting here with his chest open and his heart hanging on display for the better half of the past hour, begging Will to reciprocate even a fraction of how he feels for him.

     

    or the one where byler finally talk without being interrupted. things get off to a rocky start, but between mike's candour and will's patience, i think they'll work this out just fine

    So, yeah. This has become less awkward and mentally painful to physically painful and extremely agitating. Will is seriously contemplating why his psyche ever chose this man, of all people, to have a stupid gay crush on.

    Summary

    Mike goes over to Will's new house to hang out for the first time in ages.

     

    Their eyes meet once they both become stationary. Will tries to hide the shimmering and adoration in his eyes, but it still breaks through. Though it doesn’t really matter since Mike is quite literally oblivious to everything around him. Mike is simply just observing the boy before him, wondering when he got so tall.
