    Summary

    Second Part to ~~ It's the Start of Our Journey?

    Steve and Eddie find themselves going down different paths. Yet, somehow, they still look for each other in a crowd.
    Eddie watches as Steve comes to school with bruises. How he leaves his friends and then how he becomes a babysitter. But he can’t approach him, not this time. Because it was Steve’s fault, they were apart.
    Steve watches as Eddie moves on and laughs with his friends as Steve learns monsters aren’t always people. He finds himself alone most of the time and hates himself the longer time goes on. At least he has Nancy, right?

    Summary

    Steve Harrington is a background character in Eddie’s life, one who he only knows because it’s a small town and everyone knows everyone. Everyone has some distant connection, some oddly personal anecdote about everyone else in town.

    Eddie’s connection is that he’s been slowly falling in love with the guy for years before ever getting to know the real him. When he does, it only makes it worse.

    - (or: Eddie lives out a queer teen RomCom while the Upside Down goes 'hehehe' out of frame)

    Summary

    “Steve- Steve you’re staring-” Eddie spoke, snapping his fingers in front of his face. Steve met Eddie’s worried gaze, a small smile edged at the metalhead’s lips.

    “You alright there Stevie?” he asked.

    “Yea- uhm- yea, I’m good” he hastily replied, going back to packing clothes. He wondered why he was acting like a total zombie, it was just Eddie.

    Summary

    And Wayne liked the rest of Eddie’s friends, but he still got the bubbling anger at Steve Harrington. Even after months of dealing with the boy, he still couldn’t get over the fact that he had been one of the kids to make Eddie’s life hell in high school, and he was not going to forgive him for that.

    Things changed one night, when he heard a knock at the door. Eddie asked him to get it, because he was busy painting his little toys for his game, and so he did, and was met with Steve Harrington, tears running down his face and mixing with blood that covered him, purple bruises blooming over tanned skin. Steve flinched at the mere sight of the man, and Wayne realized that maybe he had been wrong all along, because Steve Harrington was different, wasn’t he?

    OR

    Wayne Munson realizes that maybe Steve Harrington isn't as bad as he thought.

    Summary

    Maybe Steve was unloveable. Maybe the rottenness of his parents, the rottenness of his past had ruined him, and everyone could see it. Maybe he was broken. There must have been something wrong with him, right? Why else would nobody ever stay?

    Steve doesn’t know why it hurt that much to hear. He knew Eddie didn’t like him back. Maybe it was the fact that he had, at one point. Maybe it was the fact that in high school, when Steve was an asshole, Eddie liked him, but now that he was better, now that Eddie knew the real him, he didn’t.

    He knew it was coming, he really did. Of course Eddie would never like somebody like him. He was a bad person. He would never be better. He would never be able to make up for his King Steve days. Why did he ever think he could?

    OR

    Eddie makes a comment that break Steve's heart.

    Summary

    If he was being completely honest, Steve knew he was fucked as soon as he met his roommate.

    Eddie Munson wore shirts that showed off his torso and chipped black nail polish that looked fantastic when he played the guitar and he was everything that Steve Harrington most definitely was not. Steve Harrington managed to score a spot at a prestigious university through a combination of daddy’s money and impressive athletic ability. However, his charms as a star athlete hadn’t been enough to bury his increasingly evident bisexuality or win the heart of his dormmate, who definitely hated his guts.

    It didn’t matter, though, because Steve hated Eddie right back. And, hey, it’s normal to check out your sworn enemy’s ass every once in a while.

    Summary

    When Nancy tells Steve about Eleven, he starts searching the woods every single day to find her.

    He finds the cabin by accident.

    Summary

    Okay, so not only is Steve Harrington apparently not a douche, but he’s also kind of a mess?

    Now that Eddie is properly looking, he notices the slight bags under Steve’s eyes and how his face is drawn, as if he hasn’t been getting enough sleep. That doesn’t make sense– Eddie would think that Steve is living a cushy life, with his mansion and parents that probably pamper him like a goddamned baby. This Steve doesn’t look pampered at all; instead, Eddie can see a familiar haunted look in his eyes that screams he’s just like you.

    ••• ••• •••

    If you looked up the definition of "fucked-up" in the dictionary, Steve Harrington's face would be plastered right next to it. After living through two Upside-Down debacles now, it makes sense. Eddie Munson doesn't know about that, but he does notice how similar he and the former King of Hawkins High really are.

    Summary

    “Looking back as an adult, there was a silent mutual understanding that Steve didn’t know how to apologize because he had never been taught of the importance- just as Eddie didn’t know how to hold a grudge for the simple reason that the first people who did him wrong were the only ones he had.”

    OR

    When Steve is struggling with way more than just his sexuality, an old friend leads him in the long and arduous journey of self-discovery and happiness.
    If they fall in love along the way…well, isn’t that just a bonus?

    Summary

    “So, uh, what’s with the bandana, Eds?”
    Eddie spluttered out a cough.
    “What do you mean? It’s like…it’s an accessory, like my rings.”
    Steve raised an eyebrow and scoffed softly.
    “Doesn’t seem like just an accessory with that reaction.” Eddie looked away, suddenly very interested in a torn bit of carpet next to his shoe. Steve sighed and rolled onto his back again, his head coming to rest next to Eddie’s hip. “C’mon, I thought we were like, y’know, pretty good friends now. You wear it every day, it obviously has some kind of meaning.” Steve knocked his hand into Eddie’s denim-clad skin. “You can tell me, I don’t bite.”
    Shame, because I do, Eddie thought.

    It's the summer of 1986, the Upside Down is destroyed, the kids are safe, and Eddie Munson has to be in the process of being karmically punished for saving the world if the way Steve Harrington is smiling at him is any indication of his current universal standing.

     

    A little bit of a fix-it fic where Steve and Eddie take forever to realize they're in love that came to me like a dream while listening to 'Sex' by the 1975.

    Summary

    No matter how long Steve had been free of the lab, what he had experienced there still plagued his every moment.

    He managed to squish down the thoughts during the day, to grab hold of them and shove them into the locked chest in the back of his mind. But, it was bursting: the locks were straining with the pressure of everything Steve had pushed inside of it, and yet it still held. Steve knew that the day the lid would fly open was inevitable, but he hoped that if he held it off as long as possible, the damage wouldn’t be completely irreparable. Maybe if Steve was lucky, it would happen when he was alone. Steve knew that if anyone saw who he truly was, they would leave him in an instant. So he ensured that the chest in his mind would remain forever closed, and if the day finally came where it opened, Steve would lock himself in his room, in his empty house, and deal with the consequences himself.

    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?
