    Summary

    It’s 1993. Eddie works at his local garage after serving time for a drug charge in high school. There he meets Steve, a typical well to do suburban dad type, who turns everything Eddie believes on his head. And he’s married- but also flirting with him?

    OR

    Mechanic Eddie develops a crush on Suburban house-husband/kindergarten teacher Steve, who definitely likes him back, and is also beard-married to Robin.

    Summary

    “So that’s how they discovered this method of learning behavior and they called it “classical conditioning”. It means that you need some kind of association stimulus in order to learn specific behavior. Like giving candy to a kid that did their homework kinda thing.”

    Eddie just looked dejected at this point. “I still don’t get where you’re going with this.”

    Robin had a very suspicious glint in her eyes, a hint of smile dancing on her face. "Where I'm going with this is - what if we do a little experiment?"

    Her smile overtook her face when Eddie just continued staring at her in confusion. "What if we condition Steve into liking you?"

     

    Or: 5 times Eddie gives Steve candy in hopes of getting in his good graces and 1 time Steve askes for it.

    Summary

    All kinds of fluffy little one-shots, a little angst here and there, but always a happy ending. Very Munson focused but everyone in the entire crew shows up at some point or another.

    Not in chronological order (until chapter 24, when suddenly it is, because… I don’t know why). just random slices of life in the warm fuzzy universe of fulfilled needs.

    Summary

    If you asked Eddie when his fascination with Jason Carver began, he wouldn't be able to tell you. Maybe it was in middle school when he'd been talking to Chrissy, and the small blonde boy strolled up to interrupt them with a mean scowl.

    Summary

    It’s hard to pretend after that. But he tries. Tries his hardest to push it down, deeper and deeper. Beneath the piles and piles of crap he’s shoved down there over the years. All repressed, no time or inclination to deal with it. With the multiple concussions, with the fact that sometimes his vision blurs at the edges and has to ask people to repeat themselves when the ringing in his ears gets too loud. With the insecurities and regrets that came along with being King Steve. With the obvious mommy and daddy issues which everybody sees but nobody comments on.

     

    With enough darkness to fill a thousand therapists’ notepads.

     

    There lies that tiny glimmer that is Eddie Munson. That little sparkling beam of joy that Steve knows is there but he cannot reach. Knows it can only live inside him.

     

    Eddie doesn't die, but he does have to leave Hawkins.

    Steve and Eddie part and come together time and time again. [1986 - 2004]

    Summary

    AKA: Tons of angst with a lot of humor and some smut framed with music that involves battles with creatures from another dimension and threats that are just as scary that walk amongst them everyday.

    Nina Valdez met Eddie Munson in kindergarten and the two became inseparable. She’s bright and shiny while he’s dark and edgy. What happens as they enter high school? Nina befriends Steve & Nancy and eventually the whole gang as she makes her journey through adolescence. The gang handles everything from jealousy and drug addiction to monsters from an alternate dimension. Sometimes best friends grow apart and sometimes they grow into lovers.

    "Are you gonna go?!" Robin asked with enthusiasm, handing the note back to Nina.
    "...I guess."
    "Steve. I'll grab snacks. You grab some beer."
    "Excuse me? What?"
    "We're going to tailgate your dramatic confrontation! Oh! Maybe Nancy, Jonathan, and Eddie want to come too!" Steve let out a laugh and Nina rolled her eyes.

    "And isn't it just so pretty to think
    All along there was some
    Invisible string
    Tying you to me?"

    Summary

    So maybe it was a bad idea. And maybe he was under the influence of 13 dollar vodka from the gas station down the street. BUT! Robin had said to be bold, since Eddie was utterly oblivious to his attempts to flirt. Men were so much harder to get with.

    Summary

    Bleeding out in Dustin’s arms, Eddie’s more or less made peace with the fact he’s dying. The last thing he expects is to wake up in his seventeen-year-old body on the day Will Byers goes missing. If this is real and Eddie hasn’t had a total psychotic break, maybe he can prevent a whole bunch of bad shit from happening.

    Too bad no one took the time to fill Eddie in on the finer details of what the fuck’s been going on in Hawkins since November 1983.

    Also, 1983 Steve Harrington kind of sucks.

    Summary

    Eddie felt like a fool, sure. He couldn't not feel stupid at the apparent death grip the sight of Steve Harrington in that god forsaken sailor suit had on his soul. And his erection, but that wasn't a conversation for polite company. He also felt like an absolute loser because as much time as he'd spent sitting on the bench directly outside Scoops Ahoy, he couldn't bring himself to actually go in.

    He was a freak.

    Not stupid.

    OR

    Eddie takes a uncalculated risk at Starcourt...
    And it pays off

    Summary

    Eddie doesn't want his beast to hurt anyone. All he has to do is keep his head down and avoid anything that will trigger it, like... literally anyone else. Herbivores make him want to chase, carnivores make him want to be chased, omnivores make him want to defend his territory, and Steve...

    Steve is altogether a different problem.

    So, Eddie keeps his head down, breathes through his mouth to avoid smelling anything, and prays to everything holy and unholy he does not run into Steve.

    "What do you think?"

    She sighed. "Where would we even get the tents?"

    He waved her off. "I've got that covered."

    She huffed again. "Fine. Let's pitch it to them, see what they think."

    "Please, who could resist the Wheeler-Munson pleading smile combo?"

    Or, the power goes out and Nancy and Eddie take the kids camping.

    Summary

    Eddie is renewed when the trail is stronger as he nears the breakroom. He is almost certain that the thing he craves is just behind a door and number-punch lock. Eddie hurriedly presses in the code but he’s fumbling. It beeps to indicate the password fails. He tries again, it beeps, fails.

    Eddie is about ready to rip the goddamn door off its hinges, doing everything in his control not to, because he could easily- when it opens, just before he attempts the passcode again.

    Standing before him is the source of what is currently causing him to unravel. It blinks at him, eyes at about level height with his own.

    Hazel is a color he never considered much before, but now, it sucks some of the breath from Eddie’s lungs.

    It makes no sense, but he can only find himself thinking of the hues of the sunset he so loves, and how these eyes may be able to stand rival.

    Captivating.

    Harrington.

    *AU. Eddie is a PA at Hawkins Memorial Hospital, and Eddie is a bit more than human. He’s come to find life a bit mundane and buries himself in his work. That is, until a new EMT enters Eddie’s emergency room and his blood smells like nothing Eddie has ever known.*

    Summary

    Eddie is overjoyed to land a job as a stand-in for Roane County legend Duke Damian, happy to stretch his acting chops and present terrible horror movies to the masses. It's probably the best day of his life- or was until he got (sort of) kidnapped by an asshole who is either playing a messed up prank on him or genuinely having a mental health struggle. Monsters aren't real, everyone knows that. Right?
