    Summary

    At the end of it all, to fix everything, the Hawkins crew had to go back to 1983 and prevent the first gate from ever opening.
    After that, they've got a chance to lead normal lives -- from November 1983 onward.

    OR

    Waking up to find out the government had busted a bunch of experimented-on kids out of Hawkins Lab over the weekend is somehow not the strangest thing that happens in Eddie Munson's junior year.

    No, that's a toss up between being reverse-adopted by a party of middle schoolers and the fact Steve Harrington won't stop staring at him.

    Summary

    Dustin jumps on the opportunity. "So you're in?" He asks. "You'll apologize to Lucas and all of us will work together to bring the basketball team to their knees?"

    On the couch, Eddie appears to agree with the plan if the ecstatic grin on Dustin's face is anything to go by.

    "Jeez," Robin mutters to Steve. "Were we, like, ever this intense as kids?"

    "No way," Steve says. "But we never had to fight the government while we were in middle school, so."

    "Oh, that's right," Robin says. "Good thing the government waited for us to develop anxiety and depression before they clued us in or else they'd be toast."


    When the basketball team destroys the Hellfire Club's meeting room, Dustin turns to Steve for advice. It quickly spirals into something bigger.

    A story involving aggressively workshopping public apologies, stray cats, the realization that maybe former bully Steve Harrington did change his ways, Robin Buckley's sudden love of student journalism, and, of course, revenge.

    Summary


    June 1986
    Steve is lonely.

    He’s always been lonely, honestly. An empty house, absent parents, friends that didn’t really know him. Frankly, he probably doesn’t really know himself, either. It used to be easier to ignore—between sports and parties and searching for the next girl to hang around with.

    Then Nancy Wheeler told him he was bullshit. In the wreckage of the storm, he realized she probably hadn’t been that off base to call his life bullshit.

    [Life in Hawkins, Indiana is boring, ordinary, no supernatural entities. Steve still changes.

    Luckily, he still makes some new friends, too. Certain people are simply meant to be in the same story.]

    “I think we should pretend to date,” Robin says.

    “What?” Steve sputters.

    Summary

    Sixteen years after the world didn't end for the last time, Max Mayfield showed up on Steve’s doorstep and said, “You gonna walk me down the aisle in May or what?” Or, it’s 2002 and Steve Harrington attends a wedding, a funeral, and a birth.
