    Summary

    Billy spends a night fighting monsters with a crowbar in his hand after Harrington knocks him into the Byers' fridge.

    In the aftermath, he and Max call a ceasefire.

     

    or: Billy Hargrove gets the family he deserves in the form of three children taking up the seats of the camaro, in the form of Billy teaching Max that she can be as badass as she wants without being less of a girl because Billy taking care of himself doesn't make him less of a man, in the form of the blood and bruises and broken bones that Eleven and Billy share, in the form of Will Byers learning that he's not the only boy in Hawkins who wants to kiss other boys.

    Summary

    The bouncer manhandles Billy out the bar doors and into the slap of cold nighttime. It was a good fight. Always good when he can fight back.

    He’s still high on it when he walks into the convenience store for a pack of smokes, licking the slow ooze of blood off his split lower lip. That’s probably why he doesn’t notice Harrington one aisle over; why he near runs into him as he rounds a corner.

    And honestly, he didn’t expect to be the one to jump when they met up again.

    For a moment, Harrington’s eye that’s not a swollen mess is big and round and white around the brown iris and his pink lips part like he’s about to say something, start something. But he doesn’t. So Billy has to.

    That's how it works.

     

    Or: Forget summer, Season 3 starts when the fight at Byers house ends, fresh bruises and all, no break, and with new monsters, like 110% more Billy falling for Steve and 1645% less throwing away his character arc.

    Summary

    It’s one thing to be a light sleeper in this shitty town that won’t shut up at night, but it’s another thing entirely to fall asleep on Steve Harrington’s shoulder during last period English.

    Summary

    "Hargrove is here." Robin's voice sounds like she's under water.

    "I know. I was there, too. We saw him come in, like, an hour ago." It was the first time he'd seen Billy conscious and on his feet since Starcourt. And tonight he had walked through the front door into a high school party where Steve and Robin were sitting at the top of the stairs waiting for their trip to kick in, and the whole world had started to tilt on its axis.

    He was here, in a leather jacket and those stupid tight jeans and that halo of curls, and all Steve could think about was the memory of hauling that mangled body up the broken escalator, through the ruins of the mall, warm blood soaking through his Scoops uniform at an alarming rate, Billy getting heavier and heavier with every step until he was an actual dead weight hanging off Steve's neck. He'd been right back in that parking lot, Max screaming Billy's name over the sound of an ambulance, and Steve putting his hand to Billy's blood-slick chest and finding only cold and the distinct lack of a heartbeat.
