    Summary

    Richie has spent years getting better at being on his own.

    One of the fundamental things he learned about himself early on in life is that he needs people far more than they ever need him. He’s never been one for moderation, and once people realize that they tend to drop him like the too-needy loser he is. He’s had to learn how to keep people at arm’s length, to exist in loneliness without feeling alone. And he got good at it — to the point where he didn’t really notice it anymore, and the faceless crowds he performed for almost felt like enough.

    Then Mike called him back to Derry.

    --

    Or, after Derry, Richie shows up at Eddie's apartment and learns how to let himself be happy.

    Summary

    The day you get the most important email of your life, there’s a new black skidmark on the wall of the stairwell, and you know exactly whose fault it is.
    “Margaret,” you intone to the harried, wild-haired woman in the lobby.
    She sighs at you as she tries to jimmy her mail key loose. “I know.”
    It wouldn’t even be that bad if the kid would just skateboard outside. Or get good at skateboarding. Either of those things. Maggie’s a nice lady, though, and she’s had “trying my best” scribbled all over her since they moved into 6B maybe eight years ago. So you try not to be a dick, even if her son is a gold-standard pain in the ass. He’s good for three things: smells, noise, and reminding you how big Eddie must be by now.

    Summary

    “So obviously Derry was fucking batshit,” Eddie says.

    Richie hums in an affirmative tone, determined to keep his mouth shut.

    The rest all comes out to the signature rapid-fire Kaspbrak beat.

    “I’m not good at talking about shit but I talked to Stan and he said a therapist was probably a good idea so I got one and I figured some things out and you wouldn’t talk to me and you didn’t answer your fucking phone, but you said – you said I could come visit anytime, before we all went home, and if you didn’t mean it you’re a real fucking asshole, because I’m here now and I didn’t really have anywhere else to go or stay because I’m, because,” He sighs and drags his left hand down his face, conscious of his scar, and Richie clocks something before his brain catches up, “Because I got divorced. Also, I’m gay.”

    (Or: Eddie shows up on Richie's doorstep. You know the drill.)
