Will kind of gets it. He gets why everyone loves Derek Nurse. The guy plays spectacular hockey, and he’s an asset to any team he’s on. But he’s also the most charming motherfucker in the NHL right now, he’s a PR wet dream with how little trouble he gets into. He’s gorgeous and built, and he’s funny and smart. Will spends more time than he’d like to admit watching interviews of the guy and being envious of how likeable the guy is.
Will has seen a lot of hockey interviews, okay? Any other guy you’d pull off the bench could barely string together three cohesive words during a game, but catch Derek on his way back to the locker room and he’s all smiles and poetry references.
So, yeah. Maybe they do have a rivalry.
Here’s the hard part about being in love with your best friend:
You can tell them you’re in love with them a thousand times. You can show them you’re in love with them a million different ways.
But the line between platonic and romantic is not as thin as a wire; sometimes it feels like a fucking fence, and it’s impossible to convince the other person to climb over it.

Nursey is, for all intents and purposes, the worst at sneaking out.
He’s about as graceful as can be when it comes to gliding across ice wearing shoes with blades attached to the bottom, but put him in some sneakers and set him loose across some hardwood, and he’ll alert everyone within a thirty-foot radius of his movements.
There’s a stupid creaky floorboard right by the kitchen on the way to the front door that Dex, for some reason, refuses to fix. Nursey forgets to sidestep it. He flinches as the loud groan comes from underneath him, and his shoulders droop when he hears the discouraged sigh from the kitchen.
He’s been caught.
Co-captaincy has given them these early mornings, and it has given Holster a thousand more reasons to fall hard and fast for Ransom.
Not that he needed any convincing in that area. He’s always been lurking around it, if he’s being honest.

Bitty sees the meme on Twitter, and he probably should know right then what this will lead to.
He’s tagged by at least five of his followers, each asking him to pull the prank on Jack and post the response. Bitty considers it for all of three seconds before he decides to do it.
“You’ve gotta stop wriggling, you fucking twink,” Richie tells him.
Eddie laughs, “Oh, I’m the fucking twink, you messy—”
“Hey, hey, no name-calling, I’m sharing my precious weed and Korean chicken with you, you lunatic,” Richie reminds him. He finishes the last of Eddie’s wing himself and drops the bone back into the box, ignoring Eddie’s brief noise of protest. “Take another hit, my God, you’re getting distracted, stop forgetting what you’re doing and smoke up, Johnny.”

Richie watches Eddie do a headcount.
“Yes, fine, let’s go, we’re all here, Stan— Stan, Stan, hold his hand— He’s gonna— Stan—”
“Eds, babe, unclench, it’s gonna be okay,” Richie says, throwing an arm around Eddie’s shoulder. Eddie, miraculously, leans into his touch instead of away, slotting himself along Richie’s side.
“It just— makes me nervous,” Eddie says, motioning to the carnival as a whole. “The whole… thing. Clown. Thing. I mean.”
“I get it.”

“Shut the fuck up, Richie, Jesus Christ,” Eddie snaps, still trying to park. Richie shoves at him, and Eddie shoves him back.
“Just park the car, God, you’re not performing brain surgery—”
“Fucking forgive me for trying to drive safely—”
“Park, dipshits!” Stan calls out, hands cupped around his mouth. “I’m not interested in seeing either of you!”
“I’m really sorry he’s late, Mr. K.” Benji whispered and Eddie smiled.
“It’s okay, I’m sure he’s on his way.” Eddie assured him, trying to sound confident even as he eyed the clock suspiciously. He was 15 minutes late at this point and Eddie was annoyed. He had only ever met with Benji’s mom, Beverly, and she was lovely. Eddie had been hoping to meet with her, but apparently Benji was with his dad for the week, so it was him picking the boy up today.
Hopefully he wouldn't be as annoying as his lateness made him seem. Hopefully, he'd be a good guy.
(He would be.)

Richie Tozier wasn’t funny. He just wasn’t. And Eddie respected Bill for maintaining a friendship with the man since high school, even through Richie’s rise to fame, but no matter how much Eddie loved Bill, he could NOT sit there and pretend to appreciate Richie Tozier's Netflix Special.
“Can you not just sit there and bitch?” Bill asked and Eddie raised his hands in question.
“I didn't say anything!” Eddie argued. Bill rolled his eyes, shoving popcorn in his mouth.
“You’re been making dumb faces this whole time. I can practically hear the judgment rolling off of you.” Bill scolded, “There’s some funny stuff in here, if you get over yourself and... well, parse through the bullshit.” Eddie laughed once, loud and unbelieving.
“Bill, unclench. Eddie’s allowed to not love Richie as much as you do,” Audra said calmly, through a mouthful of Doritos, “I mean, the guy did just make a joke about dick-hole vaping.”
Seriously. Not. Funny.
Set in a universe where you don't see color until you hear your soulmate laugh, Eddie really doesn't think Richie is funny. I wonder how that's going to work out for them.
