    Summary

    Billy's been in the Upside Down for long enough to know how to survive it.

    Eddie died, he's sure he did. So why, when he opens his eyes, is Billy Hargrove looming over him?

    Steve should know once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. But is it really coincidence that the only boys he's ever crushed on have sacrificed themselves to the Upside Down? Or is it something more?

    Summary

    After running away from an abusive home, and then getting lost, Cassie found herself lost in the Upside Down without any sort of guidance about said world. She survives by scavenging people's homes and swinging around a nail-filled bat that she found in one of them. But how will she navigate a world that she thought she knew pretty well when introduced to one Billy Hargrove?

    He's an asshole extraordinaire who is hiding his trauma behind a smug grin and snarky comments. Throw into the mix a metalhead that is wanted for a murder he never committed, the girl that he is said to have killed, a dethroned high school jock, and a buch of rambunctious kids that have barely made it to their teen years. It's the perfect recipe for disaster. And a love... Square?

    (Starts After Billy's "Death")

    "Billy had woken up somewhere cold and wet. He coughed up blood and looked up only to see a smaller girl. He widened his eyes at first thinking it was Max and maybe all of that he just experienced was a bad dream. Unfortunately that wasn’t true…"

    Summary

    They couldn't save Eddie. They couldn't save Hawkins. They didn't save Max. Life has to go on.

    It's been a month since their showdown with Vecna, and Steve is finally coming to terms with something being wrong with him. He barely eats, he gets enough sleep to keep going, but the party and Robin still need him so he has to go on. Robin is excited for a date she has with Vickie, and the kids are excited about some Lunar Eclipse thing happening on the same night. Nothing goes to plan for Steve, who ends up transforming into a monstrous bat at the peak of the bloody Full Moon and finds himself being guided back to the Upside Down, where a vampire Eddie Munson has been waiting for his way back home.

    Summary

    It's been two months since the fall of Hawkins. Vecna won, Eddie Munson dead, Max in a coma. There's a new status quo, with everyone trying to patch their lives together as best as possible.

    So why does Steve Harrington keep dreaming of Eddie, trapped in the Upside Down?

    Maybe it's guilt, another millstone to hang around his neck.

    But there is something about the way his wounds ache as he wakes that hints at something else.

    A line between him and Eddie.

    A chance for salvation.

    Summary

    Eddie died. Completely and irrevocably. But it was only for a short time and it eventually gave him some... changes. And, maybe, not just in his appearance (quite cool, to be honest). But what a surprise! That was not the strangest thing, that happened to him in the Upside Down! What about a living but very tired and battered Previous High School King? They should get along together to survive in the Upside Down and wait until someone rescues them. That’s it! Nothing difficult. They don’t really need to know each other’s secrets, right?
    …Right?
    OR Eddie and Billy are stuck in another dimension. Friendship happens.

    Summary

    The battle is over, Vecna isn't quite dead but Eddie Munson is.

    Eddie is gone forever & Steve is spiraling in the aftermath of a loss more profound then anyone knows... and if the idea of Eddie still being there with him somehow comforts him in his weakest moments... Well no one needed to know that but him.

    Eddie's whisper of approval in his imagination is the only fuel, the only comfort he needs. He has to do it right this time, for Eddie, for himself.

    If no one understood, well then this journey would be between him, his growing album collection, & imaginary Eddie Munson... for now

    Summary

    After the recent events, Eddie, Bug, Kas and the others are ready to try and make sense of the new "Right Side up" now that the Upside Down is closed and Hawkins is back to normal. They thought it was finally the start of something 'normal', but nothing is ever easy in Hawkins. People from the past are appearing and despite the evidence, Hawkins is still on the hunt for the "Devil Duo" as it begins to heal itself from the events of the final battle. Lines are drawn, relationships strained and some of the residents will stop at nothing to get the justice they think they deserve.

     

    This is part 3 of the adventures of Eddie Munson and Bug. To understand this story and character of Bug,Kas and some of the OC characters that are going to be referenced, you can read about them in Am I What I Seem (Part 1) and Back to 86' (Part 2).

    Summary

    A month after their battle with Vecna, the world continued to spin, the seasons changed, and Hawkins settled back into the perfect image of suburban life. Summer brought out swaths of kids, backyard barbeques, and the promise of adventure on the horizon. Everything was back to normal - or it was supposed to be.
    For Steve, time froze the moment Eddie Munson died and took his heart with him. Coming to terms with his feelings for Eddie was one thing, but losing him entirely was another. All too soon, Steve couldn't take it anymore, couldn't accept that these were the cards he was dealt. So, with his sanity on the brink, Steve stormed over to the Munson residence armed with a cassette player and sheer determination. Because, well, Eddie wasn't allowed to waltz into his life, change Steve's entire world view, then just disappear - not if he had anything to say about it.
    In the Upside Down, Eddie woke up to the sound of music.

    or;
    it started with a mixtape, like all 80's love stories do.

    Summary

    Eddie’s Mix.
    Wayne fished it out of Eddie’s van after he had asked what the metalhead’s favorite song was. Steve played it at a volume just above a low drone, whenever he had a night like this. He feared that the tape was already beginning to wear.
    He sat on the edge of the bed. Watching the reel spin through the little window. Ronnie James Dio was whispering about holy divers. Steve sighed, running his hands through his hair. He really wished someone could explain this song to him.
    The song had switched a couple of times: Dio, to Judas Priest, to Black Sabbath—War Pigs, maybe? He was calming down.
    Metallica—Eddie played this song, he was supposed to be the distraction, just the distraction—Steve stood. Maybe this wasn’t the best idea tonight. He padded across the room, hand poised to switch it off.

    A flicker. He swore he saw it. He turned toward the warm light on the nightstand. It blinked again for a moment.
    “Shit,” Steve swore. “This isn’t happening. This can’t be happening.” His eyes searched the darkness beyond the small glow. A burst of static sounded from the speakers behind him, and the volume spiked. Heavy, thrashing guitar broke out into the night air.
