    Summary

    Trying to make it in comedy was easier in concept, even for a bonafide funnyguy, and the pressure from managers to keep his jokes “family friendly” led him down paths he didn’t know were dangerous until he woke up the next morning with a nose bleed and no recollection of the night before.

    Now he’s clean and spends his days explaining the difference between jelly and fruit preserves to women named Linda or Carol. Which is cool. You can never be too gay for a grocery store themed like a pirate ship.

    Summary

    “Fuck no,” Richie says like Eddie’s offended him. “God, no way. Are you kidding? Those guys used to kick the snot out of me. No, fuck hockey players. This ice isn’t for them. This is sacred ice apart from their toothless barbarism. Plus they’re all ugly as fuck. Do you think I’m ugly?”

    Richie frames his face angelically with his hands and grins. He’s got all of his teeth in his admittedly charming smile. Eddie shakes his head. Richie is certainly not ugly. As Richie talks, Eddie doesn’t even realize he’s being led further onto the ice.

    Summary

    If he were anyone else, this would be the moment for him to ask what the hell Eddie is doing: in California, generally, and showing up at Richie’s door with a stack of luggage and no explanation, specifically. It’s an interrogation that Eddie has been dreading mostly because he doesn’t actually have any good answers.

    (Or: after Derry, Eddie gets a divorce, moves into Richie's spare room, and starts to figure his life out.)

    Summary

    In the bowels of Derry, after a failed ritual, Eddie throws the fence post like a javelin and Richie falls to earth like rain, and Eddie thinks it’s over. He drops on top of Richie and thinks that surely, from that height, he must have smashed his tailbone or broken his back, but he looks at Richie’s face, shocked and searching but unmistakably alive, and he thinks I did it and he thinks run away with me and he thinks oh god I love you.

    A love story in three days.
