    Summary

    She’s two weeks into the routine when she happens to see a familiar figure cutting across the strip mall across the street. Wide shoulders, wiry arms, that tapered waist and the nonexistent ass, he’s gesturing and throwing his head back to talk to someone behind him and Carol forgets, for a moment, that she stopped talking to Steve Harrington long before high school was over.

    He looks good. He looks happy. He looks like exactly the type of distraction that could fill the last three weeks of her summer vacation. Of all the townies she might consider hooking up with to fill the time, Steve Harrington is the least embarrassing.

    Summary

    “Shit, sorry!” the kid says, skidding comically to a halt as Tommy goes crashing into the side of the truck bed.

    “For fucks sake, Henderson, what the hell is wrong with you?”

    Tommy lets the kid pull him up, still muttering apologies as the strangely familiar voice of the interloper nears, still yelling.

    “Harrington?” Tommy says when he finally rights himself, and Tommy’s pretty sure he knocked his head but it sure as shit looks like Steve Harrington – in essentials, at least. He’s grown his hair out, and dropped the hairspray routine, but the acne scars and the broken line of his nose and edges of his frown are familiar. He looks like he still works out, and Tommy unconsciously sucks in his gut. Fuck, he should probably hit the gym this summer instead of lazing on the lawn drinking his weight in beer.

    Summary

    People said that Hawkins was cursed. They weren't wrong.

    Dustin called it the Blight. A fast acting virus spread in Hawkins, moving past the town borders and further into the state. Quarantine failed. Order collapsed.

    8 weeks after the initial spread, Steve Harrington once again finds himself responsible for teenagers as he drives them cross country to California to safety, out of range of the virus.

    OR: Post-apocalypse (for Hawkins, anyway) road trip to reunite with the California gang after an Upside Down related virus devastates Hawkins.

    Summary

    Merlin dashes fiercely at the tears that have started to trickle down his face, and waits. Because if Arthur wants to take him back to Camelot as a prisoner, to a cold cell and death in the grey morning – if that is what Arthur wants, Merlin will let him, because he can’t deny Arthur anything.

    And Arthur takes Merlin’s shoulders in a hard, almost bruising grip, and he’s breathing hard, and Merlin’s crying messily, because he just can’t seem to stop and he’s more scared than he’s ever been in his life.
