    Summary

    In a scientific study, a control group is used to establish a cause-and-effect relationship by isolating the effect of an independent variable. In contrast, the experimental group is where the independent variables are introduced, which may alternate depending on the nature, type, or anticipated outcome of the experiment. In the case of the experiments performed at Hawkins National Laboratory, scientists experienced a near-total loss of the control group. But what only a handful of people knew was that many of the members of the experimental group survived...and now they were being targeted.

    Also known as a "Steve has powers" fic, because I just love those! Enjoy!

    A year before Will Byers disappears, when Steve is 16 years old, he dreams of the Upside Down. The dream, a warning, means that high school plays out differently. Steve learns ahead of time who he actually wants to be, what to care about, and that he can be brave about a lot of things he wouldn’t expect--including Eddie Munson.

    This is my excuse to rewrite Steve Harrington at Hawkins High, who deserves to feel true friendship and to play Dungeons and Dragons. And, of course, a nice love story with Hawkins’ hottest.

    Summary

    “I know.” Steve sighed and nuzzled into the crook of his husband’s shoulder. “He’s just a child.” The words were nearly the same as those spoken long ago, just before everything changed. Steve couldn’t help but feel things changing now, and he knew Eddie shared the sentiment. They have yet to find out whether the change would be good.

    “Compared to us,” Eddie said, hoping for a bit of levity, “Everyone is a child.”

    Summary

    Mike comes up next to him. Him. Not El. Without turning to look at him, Mike’s hand reaches out, brushes his, a question. Before he can think too hard about it, he grabs his hand, weaving their fingers together. An answer. A promise.

    The wildflowers underneath El wilt, and she rises, staring at the bolts of lightning as if she is setting it aflame with her mind. The clouds envelop Mom and Hopper, Nancy and Jonathan, moving for him. Him and Mike. As if he’s their target now, not El. Quite literally, Will is at the center of it all. The universe. He doesn’t want to be.

    His mom is releasing soft gasping sobs into his dad's chest and his sisters grip on his hand is steadily approaching painful, but his little brothers camera is sat on the dining table.

    Summary

    The Student of the Year Competition, held annually at Saint Teresa All-Girls College, denotes the best of the best of the graduating class.

    Nancy Wheeler, one of the most popular girls in school, has been clawing her way past the competition for years, doing anything and everything to rip out anybody that stood between her and the prestigious title. But when she's alerted to the new ‘it’ girl on campus, she decides it wouldn’t hurt to help out a fellow classmate, if that meant she could find all the more ways to take her down.

    Robin Buckley, a senior transfer student, is doing her best to keep to the shadows. It’s not like she wanted to even come here in the first place. After being offered a generous scholarship, it would’ve been stupid not to go. However, Robin’s got another reason for deciding to join so late into the year. All she needs to do to keep the peace is to figure out what some Nancy Wheeler’s deal is, and not get caught. Luckily (or unluckily) for her, it seems as though the woman of the hour is already two steps ahead of her.

    Let the games begin.

    Summary

    “Did you know the new girl already?” Nancy asked as they met by their lockers before lunch, and Eddie shook his head, chuckling.

    “Morning to you too, Wheeler,” He gave her a dramatic bow, “And nope! Just dropped into my pew like a very cute, very itchy angel. She’s allergic to wool, might wanna give her the info on where you girls find those…not-wool uniform pieces.”

    Chrissy Cunningham is the new girl in school, and clocked as a natural witch on day 1.

    Once upon a time I would have given a limb and my CD collection up in sacrifice to live in the era of ratted hair, shoulder pads, and John Hughes movies.

    But John Hughes and the rest of that movie period boxset had not prepared my dumb millennial ass for the 80s in the rural Midwest.
