    Summary

    “Steve. Run.”

     

    Something cracks in the woods to his right. Steve stops breathing, holds it in his chest for a burning moment and waits.

    “Move, Harrington!” 

    There’s a screech and a growl and a hiss and the sounds are far too familiar for Steve to not immediately react. He bolts, tears through the damp undergrowth, slams into a fallen trunk and winces, but pushes up and jumps the log like a track star. He dives through overgrown bushes and slips down a slick-with-dead-leaves hillside that spills him onto a gravel side road.

    --

    Or, the one where Steve has nightmares, Eddie is somehow alive and tagging along in said nightmares, and they both realize there is more to this whole dream sharing, sleepwalking business than they thought.

    Summary

    “Is that—?” Robin starts, before she's interrupted by Dustin calling them over.

    Because Eddie is Eddie. After Nancy had demolished Steve’s heart, he’d gone out for the weekend, Robin in tow. He’d drank enough to forget his own name and had ended up making some questionable decisions. One of those decisions had, apparently, been Eddie Munson. They’d spent two nights together, back in June, drenched in cheap beer and barely leaving Steve’s bed. On the afternoon of the second day, Eddie had left, saying he was going for a McDonald’s run, and Steve hadn’t seen him again. He hadn’t even left his number.

    OR: Six months ago, Steve Harrington had his heart crushed by Nancy Wheeler. To cope, he'd rebounded in the worst way, spending two life-changing nights with the guy of his dreams. The only problem was that the guy had ghosted him, no number, no Insta handle; Steve didn't even get his last name. Now, he's resurfaced at Steve's Friendsgiving party, apparently Dustin Henderson's new best friend.

    Summary

    “If- Uh, I mean- If our breaks ever line up or- or something. We could hav- We could hang out.” The sentence ended there, and Eddie heard Steve swallow. “Or something.”

    The suggestion hung in the air as Eddie was left reeling from the sheer bewilderment of the situation. A million things seemed to be trying to run through his head, all tangling into one massive ball of confusion. When his head finally snapped up to look at Steve, his eyes were wide, and watching him closely, the anxious movements halted, now just standing, staring. I took another beat for Eddie to realize that he was expected to say something. His brow furrowed, and his face scrunched in the confusion of trying to find what he needed to say.

    “Why?” Was the only sufficient word that surfaced. It was a genuine question, the only one that he could think of at the moment.

    Summary

    People in small towns like Hawkins tended not to like things that were weird. As far as Steve could tell, "weird" included metalheads, gays, and witches. After spending a little time with Eddie Munson, Robin Buckley, and Joyce Byers, Steve decided the average Hawkins resident could take a hike. He liked metalheads, gays, and witches. Hell, he might just be a couple of those things.

    He's never getting into metal, though. Sorry, Eddie.

    And, uh, sorry about some of the witch stuff, too.

    Summary

    "There’s something else, too, something’s that been gnawing at Nancy ever since Skull Rock. 

    See, Nancy knows what Steve looks like when he likes someone, when he really likes someone, not just when he’s trying to score a date. He gets this look, eyes full of soft longing and a pinch to his brows like he’s concentrating, thinking hard, trying to puzzle out all of your inner workings. Nancy knows this because she has firsthand experience being on the receiving end of one of Steve’s looks, and she knows that it’s a heady thing, being the object of Steve Harrington’s affections. But she also knows that these past few days, Steve hasn’t been looking at Nancy.

    He’s been looking at Eddie."  

     

    OR: Vecna is dead, Nancy has a capital-P plan, and Steve is smitten (and not exactly subtle). Title is from Question...? by Taylor Swift.

    Summary

    Steve Harrington, former King of Hawkins High, slayer of demo-beasts, and world’s best goddamn babysitter now found himself sitting outside his alma mater’s drama club room, readying himself to join a DnD campaign with the Hellfire club on a perfectly good Friday night.

    What the fuck, man.

    Summary

    Steve starts unpacking everything out of the shopping bags with the urgent efficiency of someone building a sandcastle as the tide comes in. It all happens so abruptly, Eddie actually wonders if Vecna’s back and he should jump into high alert as well.

    “Steve?” Eddie asks, cautious and the immediate tightening of Steve’s jaw is all the indication he needs. Vecna isn’t the case. And Steve doesn’t seem to be injured either. Eddie’s fucked up somehow. “Is everything okay?”

    Summary

    It started as a simple passion project. A discovery of what was possible with simple code. Eddie had been the one to bring it up to Steve. "The AI could be like, ALIVE dude!" He explained excitedly. Steve looked on in confusion, "Like they simulate emotions and personalities and are like real people but they're code!!"

    A few more hours of erratic explaining later and Steve agreed. Well, he agreed to begin with but it was nice to see Eddie so excited. Steve loved his computer science class and it didn't fail him as Eddie rang off ideas, Steve created them and Eddie made it all look good. A well-oiled machine. It was hardly near completion but with the complexity and beauty of it they realized it to test and build interest, and funds wouldn't be so bad either. It was a hit, a huge hit. They did interviews, got a lot of hype and attention and it was mostly positive feedback. Mostly.

    Summary

    “Alright, listen. You want to romance Max? It’s easier said than done.” When Lucas’s face falls, Steve is quick to tack on, “But it is doable. There are steps. Six of them.” He spreads his hands theatrically, bending a little at the waist as if setting the scene.

He’s not going to waste any of this while he’s got it.

    Summary

    Steve attends a Halloween party. Things get sexy.

    *
    “What about you, Harrington?” Eddie snatches his attention back, moving his head into Steve's field of vision so that their eyes are locked again. His pupils are huge, which shouldn’t be right, because they're directly under the single fluorescent dome light in the kitchen, and this distracts Steve enough that the question goes in one ear and out the other.

    “I—what? What about me?”

    Eddie tugs at the rosary around his neck, twirling it around his long, bony fingers. “What’s your favorite sin?”
