    Summary

    It’s been almost half a year since the night at the Byers’ house, since Hargrove beat his face to a pulp, since the dogs and the tunnels and the fire, but there’s something in Steve that’s still (stuck) there in the November darkness, waiting for something big and violent and full of teeth to close the brackets, finish what it started. Sometimes he thinks about the thing the kids called the Mindflayer, bigger and hungrier than the dogs. More often he thinks about Billy Hargrove, stronger than him, hungrier than him. The way Steve could see all his teeth as Hargrove knocked the shit out of him.

    They haven’t spoken, since.

    (steve's an unreliable narrator, billy's just unreliable, and the universe is sick and tired of both of them)

    Summary

    Billy’s there the way that he’s a lot of places nowadays, sort of absent-mindedly, like he’s not sure how it happened or why and is going somewhere else in his mind anyway.

    Steve watches him more than ever now, and Billy rarely watches back.

    (or five times billy really needed some sleep, and one time he needed something else entirely)

    Summary

    That night, 1984

    Steve sits at the kitchen table, a pack of frozen carrots wrapped in a tea towel against his swollen purple face. "I'm fine," he says. It’s over. They fought the monsters, and they won. Now he can rest.

    Except in real life, the credits don't roll, and they don't get to skip ahead to Christmas.

    Summary

    After a shot of tranquilizer to the neck and a near miss with a bat to the family jewels, Billy promises to stay out of Steve Harrington’s way and to never bring up that night again. The thing is, there’s only so many places to be in Hawkins and he’s always loved a good mystery.

    In other words: Billy and Steve find themselves seeing more and more of each other. Along the way they stumble their way into a couple of closets full of skeletons, not always metaphorically, and discover they might not hate each other after all.
