    Summary

    “Got some bad news.”

    “Don’t say it,” Richie groans.

    Eddie just talks right over him, saying, “We’ll have to cancel dinner,” but Richie moans even louder than that, drowning Eddie out.

    Summary

    Richie's main goal in life has always been to take care of Eddie, and lucky for him, Eddie's main goal was to take care of him.

    An excerpt from this work:

    Eddie was standing behind him, dressed in a pair of soft grey sweatpants and one of Richie’s t-shirts, holding a new jar of peanut butter to his chest. He’d rolled up both of the sleeves on the shirt, his muscular left arm pulled close to his body as he waited for Richie to help him out, the other sleeve hanging loosely, around where his right arm used to be, before Pennywise had bitten it off.

    Richie held his hands out, taking the jar from Eddie and popping it open with ease before handing it back. Eddie huffed softly, glaring at the jar in his hand. “I really tried,” He mumbled.

    “Dr. Marcy said it would take a while to get used to it,”

    “I know what she said,” Eddie tucked the jar under his arm and ran his remaining hand through his hair. “I hate being crippled.”

    “You aren’t crippled.” Richie shook his head, reaching out to take Eddie’s hand in his.

    “No?” Eddie shook his shoulder, the empty sleeve flapping as he did. “What would you call this, then?”

    (. . .)

    “One less thing you have to worry about.”

    Summary

    Richie finds Ben easy to talk to, which is a trait not hard to come by in a friend, but difficult to keep, in Richie’s experience. But as the months of their Junior year dragged on, even without a shared class, Ben stuck around, and Richie got pretty attached.

    Eddie is… something other than an awakening, yeah, but still something. Richie can’t really put his finger on it, but from the moment they meet things sort of click. But not in the normal way. In the way that you sometimes shift your jaw and something clicks. Off-kilter and crooked, but Richie shifts.

    So, all in all, when Richie finally moves in the next August, the last of the three of them, he’s feeling marginally good about his future. Nice, cute roommates, cheaper rent, a sizeable bedroom, sharing a bathroom with a man who could help him out of the shower should he slip and fall like he did last year. What could go wrong?

    Summary

    Do anything, says a voice in his head, harsh and loud; his younger self screaming at him; Richie putting a hand to his arm and reminding him: he can be brave.

    Do anything to let him know you want this. That you want him.

    So he keeps moving until he’s touching Richie, grabbing his wrist, sliding his hand up the sticky curve of Richie’s arm, and Richie—he must know. Eddie’s never been this bold with him, never touched him so intentionally or deliberately and all he can hear now is you’re braver than you think and it’s like everything is suddenly clicking into place.

    And then, as soon as it came on, everything is eclipsed by a churning, painful nausea roiling angry through his stomach.

    Summary

    It’s been three months now since Eddie moved onto the property given to him in his grandfather’s will. He’d been going through a bit of a crisis at the time, having just broken off his 3-year engagement with Myra and realized he was gay and quit his job. Everything had been very bad at the time, but Eddie had been high on the adrenaline of making drastic life choices. What he should have done, probably, was sell the property and the farmhouse and then used that money to restart his life in the city, where he had prospects and applicable skills. But instead he packed up his shit and moved to Derry, population almost-zero, to the farm he spent his summers on until his dad died and hasn’t seen since then, deciding to...become a farmer. Or something.
