    Summary

    “Listen,” Eddie says, voice low. He steps closer, until his bare toes align with the edge of a tile. Richie swallows. Blinks. Looks back up. “I don’t mind.”

    For a moment, Richie can’t possibly fathom what he means. Doesn’t mind what? Doesn’t mind that there’s a picture of him kissing the weird man who he killed a clown with at the top of everybody’s trending page? Doesn’t mind the word boyfriend tossed at him like it’s something that could possibly fit?

    “What,” Richie rasps, throat dry, words toneless.

    It would be funny, the way Eddie’s looking at him, if Richie weren’t so damn terrified. “Like, I’ll do it,” Eddie says. There is acute discomfort radiating off of all his sharp points. “Be your boyfriend or whatever.”

    Or: Eddie kisses Richie. The world thinks they're dating, but they're not. Eddie thinks Richie isn't in love with him, but he is. Also, a movie premiere.

    Summary

    “Uh, Spaghetti?” Richie waves a hand in front of his face, looking worried now. “Hello? Do you want to let me know whatever it was that was so important you had to drag me awake for it or -”

    “I have a turtle in my pocket that speaks to me in my head and is possessed by Bruce Springsteen,” Eddie blurts out. “Also I think it may be God.”

    Richie stares blankly at him.

    “What,” he asks flatly, “the fuck.”

    “Or a god, at least, I don’t know,” Eddie continues, “Either way, I think it was the one who brought me back to life, so. You know. The chances are very good.”

    --

    It's been forty years. Eddie Kaspbrak is just trying to make it out of the river.

    Summary

    “Do you need an antiemetic? You were fine like a minute ago,” Eddie snipes, leaning out the door with a harried look. He practically throws a pair of disposable wipes, which land limply on Richie’s shoulder. “Have you been fucking sick this whole time? Why didn’t – ”

    “No,” Richie croaks, taking the wipes with one hand and lifting the phone back to his ear with the other, then wheezing, “Listen, I got to – ” He hangs up on Mike before he even finishes his own sentence. It’s a dick move, but his head is starting to feel too small, everything is whirling, so maybe he should take Eddie up on those –

    Holy… shit.

    “What?” Eddie demands, glaring back with his usual pent up annoyance, only now the expression is ghosted over with a flickering memory of a boy that Richie had entirely forgotten.

    Summary

    Richie knows three things and three things only. The first is that New York is fucking freezing in December. The second is that he's about to see his best friend for the first time since he left the hospital after almost being murdered by a fucking space clown. And the third is that he is 100% head-over-heels in love with Eddie Kaspbrak, who is more than a little bit grinchy this holiday season.
