    Summary

    It's been nearly three years since Vecna was defeated and things went back to normal - well, as normal as it can be for former residents of Hawkins, Indiana. Living in a new town, with new jobs, and new lives, Steve, Eddie, and Robin are three friends figuring out the real world just as they'd figured out alternate ones. Steve is starting to think there just may be a reason his dating life hasn't worked out. Eddie is hoping his long term crush may not be as unrequited as he thinks. And Robin - she's just trying to get through the day as the world's best wingman.

    Summary

    (THIS WORK IS A WORK-IN-PROGRESS. TITLE, TAGS, ETC. ARE ALL SUSEPTIBLE TO CHANGE. THANK YOU.)
     

    Their bag is ready to go for their first Visual Arts class in two hours. The online course said that each class should take about 50 minutes to an hour, so Paintbrush should be free from about 1PM if the class starts at noon.

    They probably won’t need everything they packed, but it can’t hurt to be prepared. Inside they have a small plastic container full of tubes of acrylic paints, a few brushes, a notebook and some pens and markers.

    They’ve got a notebook as well. That was probably going to be the only thing they’d need for now. But once again, couldn’t hurt to be prepared.

    Summary

    Punching your roommate is not a very smart idea. Starting a friends with benefits relationship with said roommate is an even worse one. Setting up a string of rules to keep it purely physical and make sure you don’t catch feeling but catching them anyways is certainly the stupidest thing you could do in that situation.

    Luckily for Neil, he never claimed to be smart.

    Summary

    Kim Seokjin. Jin in short – for friends and family. Your bestest friend’s older brother and your roommate of five months, nine hours and- (a brief look at your wristwatch) twenty minutes. He’s tall with shoulders as wide as the ocean. Could take over the model industry at any moment. But also born with a heart of gold. He’s like the warmest of summers, the orange hues of the sunset. Shines so bright in the darkness of your night sky that you’re afraid of getting hurt if you dare to approach the burning sun. If he’s the sun then you’re the moon. The opposite that, unfortunately – doesn’t attract.

    Summary

    The first time Vegas coughed out a petal, he had brushed it off as a fluke.

    He was outdoors, walking to his class. He thought it had come from somewhere else.

    When it happened again, he was studying in his apartment. The small blue petal rested on his textbook, covered in spit.

    Vegas stared at it. 

    Then with much hesitation, touched the little petal.

     It can't be. It can't be. It can't be.

    Vegas clutched it into his fist, hoping it would disappear.

    When he opened his fist, it was still there.

     

    Or, Vegas is so in love with his roommate that it made flowers grow in his lungs.

    Summary

    “I have to be honest, you guys are a lot different than what I expected from your ad.”

    Admittedly, Will had at first felt threatened when he had taken the seat across from the three men who immediately began surveying him. He knew he was being micro-analyzed: three sets of eyes on him scanning for any minute detail that would reveal whether he would be the perfect roommate or a complete no-go. But now that he had been speaking with them for a bit, he had a somewhat easy read on the three boys who were scrunched up next to each other on the couch in front of him.

    They were total nerds.

    or

    Stranger Things New Girl AU in which Will is looking to move into a new apartment and stumbles upon three guys who seem to like him a normal amount.

    Summary

    If he was being completely honest, Steve knew he was fucked as soon as he met his roommate.

    Eddie Munson wore shirts that showed off his torso and chipped black nail polish that looked fantastic when he played the guitar and he was everything that Steve Harrington most definitely was not. Steve Harrington managed to score a spot at a prestigious university through a combination of daddy’s money and impressive athletic ability. However, his charms as a star athlete hadn’t been enough to bury his increasingly evident bisexuality or win the heart of his dormmate, who definitely hated his guts.

    It didn’t matter, though, because Steve hated Eddie right back. And, hey, it’s normal to check out your sworn enemy’s ass every once in a while.

    Summary

    Which leaves her lying on top of her roommate/best friend/unrequited crush, with barely three inches of space between them. And she should be standing up and running but she's frozen, it's like the entire world has turned to ice right there and left them hanging in this moment, like maybe they're mosquitoes trapped in amber and time has been suspended for them.

    Or

    Korra and Asami are both in love with each other, and both think their feelings are unrequited, because they're absolute disasters. (And they were roommates...)

    Written for the Elemental Fever August Challenge, day 17: Roommates. Title comes from the song 'History Hates Lovers' by oublaire. (shameless self promo, if you like the song check out my edit to it - which features Korrasami -
