    Summary

    Eddie's done a fucking lot of brave things in the past year and a half. He did a lot of brave things in Derry, and then left his wife and started therapy and came to Ben and Bev's wedding even though he's been in love with his best friend for somewhere between six months and thirty years. Even though he knew it'd be fucking hard. He's not sure how many brave things he has left in him.

    Summary

    Eventually the zucchinis are all decimated and the Furbys are lined up how Bev wants them. Richie tucks his legs in and makes room for other people on the couch. When Mike sits next to him instead of Eddie, he tries not to be crestfallen. Being seated next to Mike is a blessing, and Eddie’s only two cushions away. Richie waits for Mike to get comfortable before plopping his legs in his lap so his toes are touching Eddie, anyway.

    “Get your foot out of my armpit,” Eddie says, shoving Richie away. “What the hell are we watching?”

    “I’m so glad you asked,” Richie says. For a moment, his stomach twists nervously. But the truth is, he knows he has nothing to be worried about, not anymore. “Who here likes to objectify men?”

    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.

    OR: a sort of vaguely Stardew Valley/Harvest Moon AU, because why not

    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

    Richie had no idea what to expect when Stan and Patty asked him to be their daughter's godfather, but it definitely wasn't becoming the part-time dad to a newborn.
