    Summary

    “Besides, you’re not a stranger,” Neil says.

    “You did not know my name until a minute ago,” Andrew points out.

    “I’ve been petting your cat everyday for the past month, though.”

    “That does not make us friends.”

    “I didn’t say we were.” Neil tilts his head, the hint of a smirk on his lips. “We’re neighbors.”

    (Andrew's recent Google search history: ambient sounds to help you sleep, what qualifies you for a service dog, why do cats like to sit in boxes, daily horoscope scorpio, does quoting shakespeare mean you're being flirted with, buzzfeed quizzes food, how to be neighborly)

    ((or: in which Andrew and Neil are neighbors who do various neighborly things))

    Summary

    Neil Josten hated hospitals.

    When he was on the run with his mom, they would hide out in warehouses or sketchy motel rooms and stitch themselves back together with a needle and a bottle of whiskey. He didn't trust hospitals; they were far too open and public for his taste, doctors made it worse with their too-many nosy questions. It was the last thing Neil needed.

    But when Neil wakes up in a hospital with no recollection of how he got there and no memory of the past two years of his life, Neil hated it a little bit more.

    Summary

    When Billy first gets to fucking Hawkins, Indiana, his first impression is that it is barely even a town. It’s small, it smells like shit, and it oozes boredom. The people are boring, the school is boring, and the town is small enough that he won’t be able to get away with raising hell to tackle the boredom, because it will eventually get back to his dad. If Neil is punishing him by moving here, he couldn’t have picked a better place.

    His classmates on the whole are pale and dull and stupid, and many of them are all too willing to accommodate him just because he’s loud and pushy. Pathetic, the lot of them. No challenge at all.

    A few people, though, ignore him completely. And, well, Billy has never been good at being ignored.

    ***

    A character study, of sorts, of Billy Hargrove and the reactions he can get out of one Steve Harrington.

    Summary

    Billy doesn't eat vegetables. He doesn't eat the limp disgusting cabbage they hand out in the school cafeteria, won't touch the merest hint of green in Susan's cooking even when his dad is glaring at him across the table. He won't eat vegetables to keep himself healthy, in spite of all the warnings they give him in health class.

    He won't even eat vegetables when Steve Harrington cooks him dinner. Right?

    Inspired by a prompt from flippyspoon.
