    Summary

    With every roll of film that Max brings in, Jonathan starts spotting more and more shots of Billy and Steve. He sees them laughing together in the background or sitting close beside each other right at the edge of the frame. He catches Steve’s foot pressed right up against Billy’s under a table, and he loses count of the times that he sees one of them gazing at the other with a look he could only describe as ‘smitten’. 

     

    A little look at Billy and Steve's relationship, as captured by Max's camera and seen by Jonathan.

    Summary

    El thinks about it for a minute. Then; "Boys can be stupid sometimes."

    "Yeah," Billy says miserably, like. That's the understatement of the century.

    He and Steve. Together and separate.

    So dumb.

    "But they are only stupid because they don't know how to talk about the warm stuff in their bellies, they are worried that if they let the warm things free, they will die out in the cold." El continues in that soft, soothing way of hers. "Maybe your Steve does not love this Nancy person in the same way that he loves you. Maybe he loves--"

    Billy can't handle this.

    "He doesn't love me."

    Max takes the phone away. "Do you really believe that or are you scared of what it might mean to you if he does?"

    (or) winter is not a season, it's an occupation.

    Summary

    Billy's used to being afraid of his father, and he knows he's not the only one scared. But it's one thing to know your stepmother gets smacked around every once in a while and another thing completely to find her body on the bathroom floor.

    He's a mess, Max is even more of a mess, and Joyce Byers is a queen among mothers, she really is.

    Summary

    It wasn’t fair. It wasn’t right. Billy sat in the dark, eyes closed, listening to the clock on the mantle tick and the refrigerator hum. Steve Harrington was nothing to him, a regret, maybe, a bitter taste in his mouth, but not a friend. If Billy was resentful, he thought maybe he’d see the logic in the afterlife pinning them together, but he didn’t feel a sense of longing or torment, didn’t feel like he was being pulled between life and death, or between realms. He just was, painless, lead in his belly as he sat on the floor by Steve’s feet.

    If he was meant to be trying to get somewhere, he didn’t know where. Was he supposed to pass on? He curled his knees up to his chest and watched Steve sleep, Steve’s lips shiny with spit and hair hanging over his forehead.

     

     

    Or, how to find love as a ghost.
