    Summary

    Steve Harrington thinks he might be dead. He stares at the complexion of the boy in the mirror and thinks that maybe he didn't make it out of the upside down after all. The For list is certainly longer than the Against list. The idea doesn't seem so unlikely after everything he's seen these last few years. Adds himself to the pile of bodies that has been steadily growing in his periphery. A fly lands on the mirror and he thinks of the moniker that got thrown around the middle school before it was tossed around the high school. Little Will Byers. Zombie boy. Says it aloud to the fly.

    "Zombie Boy."

    The words sit too comfortably on his tongue to be anything but true. Steve Harrington is dead and he is so incredibly fucked.

    Summary

    After Steve dropped her off at her house, she got right to work on ideas.

    Steve did so much for them. He drove them everywhere, supervised sleepovers, and also saved them from Billy, a pack of demodogs, and helped them set fire to some hive mind tunnels or whatever. He always put the kids before himself.

    So his present had to be perfect.

    Or

    Max is Steve’s secret Santa and goes a little crazy trying to find the perfect gift.

    Summary

    "Steve Harrington isn't straight. It's been a few weeks since he sat on that bathroom floor at Starcourt with Robin, where she shared her biggest secret with him and unintentionally unlocked an entirely new side of Steve. Since he’s had to come to terms with being open to exploring that side of him, but he's finally acknowledged that he's most likely, definitely, without a doubt into guys."

    --

    After coming to terms that he may be queer, Steve Harrington does a little exploration on his own and meets the one and only Eddie Munson. Just as things are going well and accepted the fact he's falling for Eddie in their own little bubble, Steve's world is shaken by a tragedy he can't quite talk about. And when the dust settles and he's nearly ready to put the pieces back together, his worlds collide when he realizes his Eddie is the same Eddie playing D&D with the kids. The same Eddie who's now wanted for murder thanks to another upside down monster. How will he save the day when he can barely focus watching his ex mingle with his monster fighting team?

    Summary

    Steve had been called many things in his life: popular, athletic, rich, arrogant, strong, good with the ladies, the list could go on and on. But there’s one thing that no one had ever called Steve, and that’s smart. In fact, it was kind of the running joke among all of his friends and Steve always went along with it. He knew he wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed and that was fine by him. He had other qualities. Plus, he could always count on his friends to help him out or explain things to him when he was being dense again. Before his whole life turned around, Tommy was his compass. Now that the friendship had turned to shit, he had others to help him out. He used to feel awkward about it, but they all assured him multiple times that he didn’t need to feel bad about himself. “That’s just what friends are for”, they would say over and over to him until there would be a smile on his face again.

    So, if he was so dumb, how was he supposed to figure out he had a major crush on Eddie all on his own? It was impossible and totally not his fault it took him so long to notice. Plus, this time, the reason for his dumbness might not be entirely his fault.

    Summary

    He had gone through the whole attracted-also-to-men crisis in the years before, so even though he still hadn’t managed to tell Robin, or even find the courage to say the words to describe himself aloud, the attraction wasn’t a surprise. It had occurred to him when Jonathan had won over Nancy that while he was mostly jealous of Jonathan because he was pretty sure some part of him would always love Nancy, orbiting back to her at any given opportunity, sometimes he was jealous of Nancy, of the way she let Jonathan kiss her, his big hands resting on her face, and actually, in retrospect, the whole hand thing should have become apparent to him way earlier than it had.

    All that to say, Steve was well aware he was attracted to Eddie and occasionally dreamt about sucking on Eddie’s fingers, but it didn’t have to mean anything, and moreover, couldn’t. The whole thing with El and the Upside Down derailed his life, but eventually he was going to get his shit back together and back on track, and he couldn’t be doing that and also bringing men home on the weekends.

    Summary

    Eddie breaks through the noise, “I get your reasoning, just-” He sighs, “You have to be more careful. Maybe consider quitting, find something else to quiet the noises.” He rubs Steve’s cheekbone with his thumb.

    Steve sighs, “I have.”

    “Why keep up with the drugs then?” Eddie furrows his brows in confusion.

    “Cause-” He looks into Eddie’s eyes, lost in the dark brown, “I can’t spend all my time with you.”

    Summary

    “Do you do this a lot?” Eddie asks awkwardly, almost too quiet for Steve to hear him.

    “Detangle mats? Yes, it’s kind of my job.” Steve snarks, he knows that’s not what Eddie’s talking about.

    “I meant take on clients after closing.” Eddie rolls his eyes.

    Steve takes a chance, after all Eddie did call him cute a few minutes ago, “Only the handsome ones.” He doesn’t look away from Eddie’s hair, he grabs a wide toothed comb from his station. He starts combing the bottom of Eddie’s hair.

    Or, the one where Eddie has Steve do his hair, that's all, definitely nothing more.

    Summary

    “Shut up,” Eddie hissed. His panicked gaze flickered between Steve’s face and wrist. “Don’t talk. Just...shut up. Are you okay?”

    “You just told me to shut up...twice,” Steve reminded him, head lolling to the side. “Also, you’ve got some—” He gestured towards his own mouth. Flushing bright red, Eddie started rubbing off the remaining blood onto the back of his hand. “You could just lick it up, you know. More...efficient?”

    “Christ,” Eddie said, hanging his head. “You are going to kill me.” Steve couldn’t help but let out a confused whine, leaning in closer to Eddie.

    “I thought I was doing the opposite?”

    -

    In which Steve Harrington stumbles upon a vampiric Eddie Munson and locks him up in the basement for everyone else's safety. From that point on, Steve mostly has an extremely bad time, but he also falls in love. As it turns out, changing your own mind about yourself is easier said than done.

    Summary

    Eddie told himself that he was done, because he wouldn’t survive another heartbreak at that boy’s hands. But he really, really needs someone to open for them on tour. Steve Harrington had waltzed into his life, sucked him in like a siren and fucking eviscerated him with soft touches. And maybe it wasn’t his fault, but Eddie would never forgive him all the same. He’d nursed his Harrington hangover for years, and he’s not about to hand over his sobriety chip just because the guy's got a busted foot and a very apparent issue with alcohol. Not when it had taken work to get Steve out of his system the first time.

    Steve thinks of long summer evenings beating the heat in his pool, of the stick-and-poke tattoo he’s got on his ankle and chicken scratch handwriting on legal paper. He’s getting caught in the slipstream of his own shattered expectations, and it’s dangerous to cling when the branch is failing, but he thinks he can’t help it. He has a fist full of letters by the time he arrives in Los Angeles, but the Eddie Munson he knew is nowhere to be found. Left to make sense of this new version of the friend he once bared his soul to, Steve’s just trying not to fall off the fucking deep end again.

    Summary

    What if… Eddie Munson took Steve Harrington’s place. Would that lead to Steve ending up alone and shivering in a boathouse with nothing but an old oar to protect him?

    You’ll have to find out the hard way, I guess.

    Summary

    Eddie nods, “Is that not what you’re looking for?”

    “I want more.” Steve closes his eyes, “I want love, or whatever.”

    “Oh.”

    “What?” Steve flips his head to look at Eddie, “I can’t want a relationship?”

    “I never said that!” Eddie throws his hands up in defense, “I just thought ‘King Steve’ would want to play the field.”
