    Summary

    Will lets his head turn sideways to find Mike already looking at him. His eyes are pools of lightning, sharp and electric. His hair is tucked behind his ear, lips are bitten red, and for a second, Will wonders what they'd look like if Will leaned over and kissed him right this second.

    He'd push Will away. Mike is normal. He has Eleven. Will needs to stop forgetting this.

    ;

    or : Will and Mike try to figure out their friendship. It's complicated.

    (Takes place post the Season 3 Episode 3 fight.)

    Summary

    “You're drunk. And you're not going to remember a word of this tomorrow.”

    “Maybe.” Mike says, chuckling humorlessly. “But I can’t stop thinking about it. Why?”

    “We fell apart. It happens.”

    Those words seem to be petroleum to an already blazing fire. “Not to us, no, it doesn't.” Mike retorts and he’s shaking his head. “We don't grow apart.”

    ;

    or : Will's and Mike's friendship is over. A few years later, they find out they're soulmates.

    (Vol 3 and 4 didn't happen. Like the character development happened, but the rest of it didn't.)

    Summary

    Will stays at the Wheelers for the time being. He is supposed to sleep in Mike's basement, but, much to his confusion, Mike offers to share his bed. For two weeks. Things start to get weird when he always wakes up in Mike's arms.
    -
    Everything around them just screams: kiss! This moment feels perfect for a kiss. Sitting on the bed. Face to face. Under the moonlight. But he’s not sure if Mike is ready, or if Mike ever thinks they’re going to kiss. And he doesn’t want to ruin anything just because he wants physical affections—or some sort of thing to prove he’s not hallucinating. What if… What if Mike only wants to lie down after this, and no kisses? What will become of them both? What if they go back to normal in the morning? What then?

    Summary

    The world is ending, one of his closest friends is in a hospital in a coma, his girlfriend isn’t talking to him, and all Mike can worry about is how Will’s smile isn’t reaching his eyes and it’s all his fault.
     
    It’s the post volume two, canon compliant attempt at figuring out where mike and will can go after all that.

    Summary

    Holding hands with Mike Wheeler in the dark, five minutes after the world was supposed to end, Will Byers realizes two things: it’s never been about boys in general, and it’s always been about one boy in particular. 

    Or: Will grows up, falls in love, mourns his losses, and learns some lessons. Some of his paths are travelled alone, but most are with his friends. Because, as the Beatles love to remind him, it's how they get by. Them, together, against the world.
