    Summary

    "I loved you," Steve said thickly. "Once."

    "Once, huh? What happened to forever?"

    "You left."

    Billy didn't say anything for a long time. He turned the paintbrush over in his hand, calloused fingers dancing over the handle, flicking over the cheap bristles. "You didn't tell me to stay," he said, soft, tortured.

    (In which Steve is a Deputy Sheriff, Billy is a struggling artist and The Gate is open once again.)

    Summary

    "There's blood on your face," Steve said numbly. He touched his own mouth. His fingers came back dark and slick with blood.

    Billy threw back his head and laughed. Red stained his teeth. "You gonna still kiss me, darling?"

    (Or: The one where Steve and Billy find something in each other they couldn't find in anyone else.)

    Summary

    Venom only fed a couple times a week at first, but that was still too much. Decapitation made an obvious pattern. They covered their tracks, of course, but it wasn't long before the news was covering a possible serial killer.

    Sorry, Eddie, Venom said as Eddie stared at the TV in a bar, reading the captions. Need brains. Need the chemicals in them.

    "It's okay, Ve-- it's okay, love," Eddie reassured, catching himself. Talking to himself in public was one thing, but talking to an entity named Venom was something else. "We're still figuring it out."

    Love, Venom repeated.

    Eddie was still trying to read the captions on the news, to see how much of a clue the police might have.

    "Hmm?"

    Called me 'love', Venom said, sounding unsure of what to make of this development.

    Summary

    “Anyway,” Nancy carries on, “The caller has reason to believe the cabin’s new occupant might be a lone wolf.”

    “Okay, and?” There’s a pound of thunder outside, rattles the floor beneath Steve’s feet.

    “He might be unregistered,” Jonathan finishes, taking a sip out of his mug and looking satisfied, like he knows this is too good for Steve to pass up.

    Steve sighs and runs a hand through his hair, “You got a name?”

    “William Hargrove."
