    Summary

    “I fucking- uhh!! Time is frozen!” Richie shouts, pointing to Derry at large and waving his hands at the sky. There are unfalling leaves and cars seemingly parked in the middle of an intersection just a few blocks down, and a formation of birds stuck overhead. Plus! Eddie was just inside, he must have seen Ben and Bill to get out here. “How the fuck are you moving around right now!?”

    Eddie does not take Richie’s invitation to look around at the surreality of their surroundings. He squints at Richie like he has just told a particularly obvious and childish lie. “Because I’m the one who froze it?”

    Summary

    Eddie and Richie were over forty years old by the time they got together for good, so there was very little expectation they would be each other’s first anything. They usually find themselves trading off, Richie’s first marriage, Eddie’s first time kissing a dude, Eddie’s first time in LA, Richie’s first time taking it up the ass, you know, the classics.

    Or, over the years, a series of firsts.

    Summary

    “If you were in LA, I’d invite myself over to your apartment, and bring you bad takeout, and we could have like, a movie night.”

    Eddie huffs a quiet laugh. “What, would you climb through my window?”

    “Nah, dude, we’re forty, I’d use the front fuckin’ door,” he says, gratified to hear Eddie’s snort of laughter on the other end of the line. “You’d be on the top floor anyway. Penthouse shit. I’d fall and break my skull open trying to get in.”

    “No you wouldn’t,” Eddie says. “Your head’s like titanium. Thickest skull around.”

    “You’re the worst,” Richie whines. “Be nice to me when I’m bleeding out on the ground outside your beautiful Los Angeles apartment. Cradle me.”

    “I can’t,” Eddie says. “You’re too heavy.”

    “Guess I’m not allowed to die, then,” Richie says.

    “Nope. Not ever.” Eddie pauses. “You’re still allowed to crawl in my window, though. You’re the only one who ever was.”

    --

    Richie catches up on a few decades' worth of phone calls.

    Summary

    "We promised to confide in each other, and cherish each other, and sustain each other, and all that jazz.”

    Stan stares at her, blinks twice.

    "And right now, that means going back to your horror-show hometown, and facing your trauma, and potentially killing a demon. Together."
