    Summary

    “New York?” Eddie asked, quickly, before he could stop himself.
     
    “Yeees? What about it?”

    “Do you want to come to New York. For Christmas. To spend it with me.” 

    “Yeah,” Richie said.

    “I mean, I know you’re super busy and all, so—”

    “Shut your mouth, Eds. You’re sad and alone and in desperate need of company, so obviously I’m going to clear my incredibly busy schedule—the parties and the laughs and the orgies—to come hang out with you. It’ll be like, my very good deed of the year.” 
     

    (Eddie and Richie realize neither of them needs to spend the holidays alone.)

    Summary

    Beverly lived on the other side of town, so Richie would ride along the kissing bridge pretty much daily. He always, without fail, found himself casting glances towards the letters he had etched there four summers ago. Today, he kept his eyes on the road. Eddie and Betty had a second date scheduled for tomorrow.

    Summary

    Eddie realized that he'd needed to be more careful not to stare. Richie had spent so long trying to convince everybody at school to stop spreading rumors that he was gay; the last thing that he'd needed was for the wrong person to see Eddie making googly eyes at him, get the wrong impression, and start up even nastier rumors. Richie would never forgive him.

    Eddie wasn't sure how to describe his feelings for Richie, but one thought in particular had continued to nag at him. Maybe, he'd thought hesitantly, it was a crush.

    So what if it were? Eddie told himself, feeling brave and somewhat defiant, if only in his own mind. So what, so what, so what? Maybe I do have a crush on him. A crush on a boy. Who cares? Who the fucking fuck cares?
    __
    Told from the perspective of Eddie over the course of four years, Eddie and Richie learn to navigate life, sexuality, bullies, best friends, first kisses, rebellious streaks, and makeshift Halloween costumes – all while trying to deal with the most pressing issue of all: their emerging feelings for each other.

    Summary

    “Who’s so important that they can’t wait until after we’re finished, Richie?”

    Richie grinned, glancing at the name Eds lighting up his phone screen. “I’ll have you know, it’s my –”

    Suddenly, his voice cut off involuntarily with a pang in the pit of his stomach. He realized immediately that he’d never told these guys about Eddie before. Fuck, they didn’t even know that Richie was gay.

    Just say it. Say that it’s your boyfriend.

    Richie felt his pulse pick up and his hands begin to sweat. Say it.

    “It’s my, uh –”

    Boyfriend. My boyfriend.

     “Roommate,” he finished weakly.
    ---
    Richie “Trashmouth” Tozier has it all: a sold-out national tour, a multi-million dollar Netflix deal, a fan base that still supports him months after his highly publicized mental breakdown, and a boyfriend named Eddie Kaspbrak, who had been the love of his life ever since he was in middle school. It’s just that, after a childhood of being tormented for his sexuality, that last part wasn’t always easy to talk about. But Richie is more than determined to change that.
