    Summary

    Eddie never was a planner, but his new life necessitates having some idea of where he’s going, and when he’ll get there. He’d like to think that makes him more mature, but he’s still flying by the seat of his pants when it comes to the big picture. Getting his CDL was a way to escape Hawkins. To see the country, even if he’s mostly seeing long, lonely stretches of interstate in between depots.

    There are bright spots. Hazy desert sunrises that make him want to write a sad song, and the occasional free evening to take in a show, meet some locals. Follow a pretty girl to her apartment if she’ll have him.

    Most of the time, though, life comprises shitty diner burgers and far too little sleep. It's a lonely existence, but it suits him fine, until the night a strawberry-blonde ponytail at a gas station in Kentucky stops him in his tracks.

    Summary

    There are a lot of things Chrissy should be worried about, but losing your mind means you don't have to worry right? It turns out losing your mind is not all it was chalked up to be. Chrissy is hanging on by her fingernails and no one will catch her when she falls. Imagine her surprise when she falls right into the arms of none other than Eddie Munson. And then Robin Buckley comes along to stitch back together the fragments of her broken world into a shape even she can love. Who knew losing her mind would be the best thing to ever happen to her?

    Summary

    Chrissy Cunningham was promised peace by the voices in her head, but all she got was freaky powers, including being able to rewind time. Nearly every one of her ‘Routines’ ends the same, however. Broken, and shattered.

    The only other thing that is constant, however, is the fact that Eddie Munson is kind to her, listens, and always, ALWAYS tries to help.

    Summary

    “Hey, uh, we don’t need to do this,” Eddie says, resting his chin back on his hand, suddenly feeling exhausted by the whole situation. “Just give me the word and I’ll just walk away. Okay?”

    “No, it’s not that,” Chrissy says, her words rushed and tinged with desperation. She looks up at him as he moves the metal lunchbox from the table to the seat next to him. “I don’t want you to go.”

    The conviction in her voice keeps Eddie in his seat. He looks at her, again trying to gage if she’s messing with him or not, but when he sees the slight tremble of her hands as they hover carefully over the picnic table, he decides to believe her. He’s not exactly sure why. Eddie doesn’t owe Chrissy anything, and after today they’ll probably never speak again, but…

    She looks so scared. So alone. And if there is one thing Eddie Munson understands, it’s being alone.

    So, he stays.

    Summary

    The year is 1996. Ten years later. The gates are closed, the monsters are kept at bay, and the Upside Down is nothing but a nightmare buried away.

    All that’s left there is to live.

    Eddie Munson, world-famous founder of Nineties Sensation Corroded Coffin, is back in his hometown of Hawkins, Indiana for his high school reunion. There, he finds himself gravitating towards Chrissy Carver née Cunningham, cheerleader-turned-wife of Hawkins High basketball star-turned-business-man Jason Carver. And, unbeknownst to Eddie, Chrissy is magnetically drawn to him, too.

    Old feelings boil back up to the surface.

    Things may have become even more complicated than when they were back in high school. This time around, though, Eddie won’t run away from his feelings and Chrissy will learn to let go of her fears.

    10 Years Eddissy AU.

    Summary

    But! But. (And Chrissy laughs, because if she doesn’t laugh then she'll cry, and she needs to see where she’s going.) Isn’t it better to be reimagined as the town crazy lady than to be joined in holy matrimony with a personified polo shirt?

    ***

    Right before she's about to walk down the aisle to Jason Carver, Chrissy Cunningham turns tail and books it out of the church. There's no white knight on his steed to save her, so a metalhead with a motorcycle will have to do.

    Summary

    “We can make a deal. I get you a job at Family Video, with me and Robin. And I can’t make any promises, but I can try to help you study. I’ll be useless with English but I wasn’t completely horrible at math. I do that, and you just have to stop dealing and look out for the kids when they’re at school.”
    Munson’s eyes narrowed slightly. “You want to help me get a job and help me graduate?”
    “If it helps the kids, yes.”

    ---

    A Pre-Season 4/Season 4 rewrite with Family Video employee Eddie, Mama Bear Steve, Vecna-ed Steve, plenty of angst, more than one sexuality crisis, Wayne adopting every sad teen he finds, and a happy ending for everyone (except Jason and Vecna). Trigger warnings at the start of every chapter.

    Summary

    Chrissy went to stand up when she noticed something about herself.

    She was small.

    She was wearing pajamas she’d outgrown years ago…

    She was somehow a kid again.

    Honestly…sure.

    Of everything that had happened in the last few hours, somehow being a kid again in the room she used to have when she was a kid…made the most sense.

    ***
    Or - What if Chrissy escaped Vecna the first time and her backstory was explored a little more?

    It almost takes Chrissy Cunningham too, when Eddie Munson invites her to his trailer to buy drugs.

    She lives.

    Everything changes.

    Or, Steve and Eddie get the chance to fall in love before the world ends (again).

    Summary

    Season 4 of Stranger Things, if Chrissy Cunningham had survived.

    Gently she relaxed her hands, relaxed her frame. Her palms moved from his back to his sides, and she heard him draw in a deep breath.

    “You okay?” he whispered into her crown. She nodded, stepping back. His hands slid away slowly, lingering, before falling to his sides. He was biting the inside of his cheek and those eyes, those big brown orbs, were searching her.

    Giving me the Eddie/Chrissy the Duffers took away.

    Summary

    Seventeen-year-old Sawyer Foster just woke up from a coma after a horrific car accident. Her parents and doctors do their best to help her heal and get on with her life as a senior at Hawkins High.

    Only problem? I wasn't Sawyer Foster and I certainly wasn't alive yet in 1985.

    A Stranger Things take on the popular isekai genre I've been seeing in anime, except it's a grown-ass adult reborn as a teenager in the '80s.

    I'm coming out of FF retirement because I'm rabid for Eddie Munson.

    Summary

    Eddie dies, right in front of Dustin's eyes. He specifically remembered it. Eddie was supposed to be gone, in hell probably, expired, six feet under. So, why was he still alive? Why could he see and hear regular Hawkins? At this point, he really wished he actually kicked the bucket.

    -

    A fic (that's basically fanmade Season 5) where Chrissy Cunningham lives, relationships are tricky, useless gay people are everywhere, Hawkins is in shreds, and Eddie Munson is a ghost who desperately wants to be noticed. Also, Vecna's still out there and the entire group is back together again to defeat the fucker once and for all. Can they save everyone's lives or will they lose a few along the way? Saving the world is a lot harder than it's all cracked up to be.

    Summary

    Whatever this is, whatever they’re doing (and maybe it is just homework), he’s fully aware it can’t last forever. He’s been playing his part in the High School Melodrama thing for so long, he’s basically an expert at it by this point. Beat by beat, it always plays out the same way.

    But: their senior year is coming to an end, and Chrissy Cunningham thinks there may be no better time to reconsider all her plans.

    Summary

    Chrissy Cunningham has been a cheerleader, a sweetheart, a rule follower, a reader, a wallflower, a target, and sometimes full of surprises.

    She rises.

    And falls.

    Eddie Munson has been a freak, a metalhead, a dungeonmaster, a nuisance, a criminal, a friend, a delinquent, and occasionally a coward. Just this once, maybe, he's going to try being a hero.

    After all, this year's different.

    This is his year.

    Summary

    Eddie should be dead. He’s pretty sure he was, actually. He’s got the scars to prove it. So waking up in the Upside Down seems like kind of a shitty joke, and it just keeps getting shittier—until he finds Chrissy Cunningham. She should be dead too. Like, dead-dead. He saw the body, okay?

    But here they both are, trapped in the shadow-side of Hawkins, and they’ll need to work together to find a way out. Because judging by those fiery gates, something has gone very, very wrong back home.

    This isn’t quite what Eddie had in mind when he’d been trying to figure out a way to get her to hang out again—you know, mere minutes before both their lives went well and truly to hell—but he’ll take a silver lining if he can get it.
