    Summary

    Apparently, this part of the graveyard is reserved for Hawkins’s H-surnames who died relatively young.

    Billy dies at 21, drunk and depressed and recklessly driving from the bar back to Neil’s house where Billy knew he’d be getting the blunt blow of a boot to his ribs.

    At least he’d avoided the kick to the ribs, right?

    Summary

    Steve:
    Steve blinked rapidly down at his—the—body as he tried not to panic, studying the hard thick lines of muscle woven over the rib cage and the way they culminated into a low ‘V’ as they sharply tapered at the top of the pelvis and disappeared beneath the sheet. Even at the foreign angle, Steve could recognize the familiar shape of the chest. He’d stolen enough glances at it over the last few months to know Billy Hargrove’s body when he saw it. Billy Hargrove’s body—he was in Billy Hargrove’s body.

    Billy:
    Steve Harrington, Pretty Boy, Steve-Fucking-Harrington, King Steve: The problem that had a name, many of them. The problem that had been consuming Billy's every waking moment so completely that it had finally swallowed him whole—apparently. Billy looked down at Steve’s hands on the steering wheel, his long long fingers and the smooth ridged bumps of his knuckles and shivered as he swallowed. He was so fucked.

     

    (The body swap AU that no one asked for, but here it is anyway.)

    Summary

    Steve feels like Robin could've given him a warning. Something in the lines of 'he's hot as hell, prepare yourself'. But she didn't, and when Maxine's dad, William Hargrove, strutted into Steve's classroom, he was definitely unprepared for it.

    a.k.a. Steve is a teacher, Billy is a hotshot lawyer and Robin is, most definitely, having fun on the sidelines.

    Summary

    Fuck it.

    Billy looked up from his book, eyebrow raised. Steve was standing in front of the closet, in only his boxer briefs, which Billy was totally okay with, hands on his hips. He turned to look at him, eyes fierce and determined.

    “O-kay?” He replied, because, what?

    “You’re coming with.” Billy’s eyebrows shot up and he blinked a few times. Steve still had that determined, bratty look on his face.

    “To?”

    “Christmas,” he replied, like Billy was missing the point on purpose.

    Summary

    Steve is absolutely happy in California, with the weird palm trees and the salty ocean breeze and the grainy sand always between his toes. He really is. He doesn’t miss small town Indiana at all.

    (Alternatively: Billy pretends to be a drug dealer so that he can see more of his hot neighbor Steve. Steve apparently thinks his customer service is spectacular. Not that it's all too hard, with just one client, but whatever.)
