    Summary

    Eddie has always been observant. Being bullied and hunted down like a freak will make you more aware of your surroundings. He’s always been good at reading people, at finding what makes them tick. Finding a weakness that he can exploit gives him protection. The hypervigilance doesn’t end with threats, though. It’s what made him spot Steve squinting and rubbing at his temples before Eddie forced him to see a doctor for the migraines. It’s what made him realize that Robin’s eyes lingered too long on Nancy and Vickie to be entirely platonic. It’s what made him trust Dustin, with his unapologetic physical affection and loyalty.

    Will, though. He’s tough to read. Something happened to fracture his relationship with Mike, but he hasn’t put all of the puzzle pieces together yet.

    Summary

    The first time it happens, Will classifies it as a little accident.

    When he wakes, the morning sun is burning through the window onto their faces, and Mike’s cursing as he stands to close the curtains, stumbling all the way.

    “Scoot over,” he grumbles, voice dry, and for a second Will can’t do anything other than sigh like a lovesick idiot. It’s a second too late for Mike, because he grumbles more words Will doesn’t catch under his breath and then physically pushes Will towards the wall to lay beside him, arm over Will’s middle. A second of silence passes, then Mike sighs, only to whine: “Fuck, my head hurts.”

    Will can’t help it: he breaks down laughing, much to Mike’s offense.

    ---------------

    Alternatively: five times Mike kissed Will, and one time Will kissed back.

    Summary

    “Mike, buddy, I hate to break it to you, but that sounds gay,” Dustin says. “Like, no offence. But a guy just doesn’t think that other guys are nice to look at.”

    It turns out that Mike Wheeler has spent his whole life thinking that everyone under the sun thinks that boys are pretty. Will doesn't really know what to do with that - and Mike doesn't really know what to do with himself when he finds out that it's not true. Emotional turmoil ensues.

    Summary

    It isn’t before Will is inside Mike’s two-bedroom apartment for the first time that Mike realizes a part of him had expected the world to implode as soon as he stepped past the threshold, as if Will’s presence in Mike’s apartment would trigger some sort of ancient curse or something.

    The world doesn’t implode. But it’s a strangely sobering feeling, having this person who used to know everything about him, who used to practically live in his house, eye the wall decorations and the furniture with none of that age-old familiarity.

     
    Or: Five years after the Byers family leaves Hawkins, Mike and Will rediscover each other within a small apartment in New York.

    He’s never wanted to die, he just kinda… expected to. Sooner than later. But then things changed. A he got into a relationship, hidden abilities he'd never dreamed of having came to life, and now it looks like it's going to be up to them again to save the world.

    It always is, isn't it?
