    Summary

    “Steve?” Eddie interrupts again. Steve casts a glance in his direction, but Eddie is looking past him at the television with hazy eyes.

    “Yeah, I’m here.” Steve jostles his foot gently and gestures for the doctor to continue talking about fluid levels. By fluid, he’s pretty sure she just means blood. The blood that Eddie was coughing up, he figures. It had to go somewhere, so they must’ve drained it the same way they drained all the leaking air from Max’s lung. Maybe. He hopes Eddie’s uncle gets this stuff better than he does.

    “Don’t you live in Loch Nora?” Eddie asks just as the doctor is opening her mouth to speak again. Steve builds up to a sigh, unsure how exactly to tell Eddie to shut up when it’s not even his fault that he can’t, before he realizes Eddie’s gaze is still glued to the TV.

    Summary

    Eddie survives, but his entire life is locked away in the Upside Down forever (his books, his DnD stuff, his guitar.) Everything that wasn't on Eddie when Steve carried him into the ER, gone.

    So naturally Steve starts giving him things. Handing Eddie back those little outward markers of who he is.

    Summary

    “I don’t know how much use I’ll be, protection-wise, is all,” Jaskier finishes. “I can’t fight for shit.”

    “You do fine,” Geralt tells him.

    OR: Jaskier takes Yennefer and Ciri to Oxenfurt. He proves, to himself mostly, that being human is good enough.

    It’s not enough anymore.

    It’s like Jaskier fell asleep at age nineteen and found himself in a dream— a beautiful dream of adventure and music and love, of friendship and devotion. Jaskier fell asleep, twenty years passing, and now he’s been jolted awake in a middle-aged man’s body, with all the stiff joints and jaded thoughts that accompany it.

    Geralt loses a chunk of his memories, meets an overly-friendly bard, and comes to the obvious conclusion: that somewhere along the way, he apparently lost his godsdamned mind and decided to take a human lover on the Path with him.

    “Oh my word,” Jaskier says when he finds his voice again. “I cannot believe you just compared me to a whore, and it was still the most flattering thing you've ever said to me.”

    “Sorry,” Geralt mutters self-consciously. “I meant—”

    “Ohh, no no no,” the bard interrupts with mounting glee. “You do not get to walk that back now. You just said, out loud, that my company is a privilege, one that you would pay dearly for. Words that will come back to haunt you, witcher-mine, because when you get your memories back I am going to remind you of this at least once a day for the rest of our lives.”

    Steve Harrington knows two things to be true: the St. Louis Cardinals are the best baseball team in the world, and Nancy Wheeler is far too amazing for him to hog all to himself.

    “I honestly just don’t get the appeal,” Barb says from the corner of the room. But then, Barb had been a late bloomer; she died before she ever got around to being interested in boys.
