    Summary

    Rather than leaving Steve Harrington stays with Eddie in the Upsidedown, and while Steve has always wondered how Eddie 'the freak' Munson's mind works he wasn't expecting this.

    Everything is as it should be, not here, not now, not after everything.
    Rather in another life, at a different time, we shall have what it could be.

    he however has not learned the art of not adopting random children, and while he loves his daughter and has always been a girl dad, part of him had always wanted a son.

    Summary

    Eddie lives thanks to Vecna but unbeknownst to Vecna, he awakes early and escapes. Vecna tries to get his puppet back periodically meanwhile Eddie slowly finds his place among friends and Steve is there to help despite his own issues.

     

    This is a mainly Steve POV fic but it does switch to Eddie's more often than I think I'll realize. First Ao3 fic so I'm learning how to navigate :)

    Summary

    ‘83 had been a long year. My parents got into a nasty divorce, mom walked out, and I got stuck moving into a tiny hick town with my father. Even with Christmas break rapidly approaching, though, nothing was getting easier. It was my junior year, and between college level classes, college lists, and SAT testing, I was ready for a vacation.
    Unfortunately, Thanksgiving break was still weeks away, and Hawkins was about to get a lot more interesting.

    *******

    OC-Insert for all of the Stranger Things Seasons so far (minus volume two because I refuse to accept it) featuring Steve Harrington and way too much Hurt/Comfort. Mostly canon-compliant but with lots of additional scenes.
    Can also be read as Steve Harrington/Reader, I try to avoid too much character description for OC.

    Summary

    Everything was okay.

    It was perfectly fine. Nothing was wrong. There was no reason to be so irrational. He just needed to get a grip, that's all. These dreams, they didn't mean anything. Neither did the numbers on his wrist, or that he couldn't remember anything before he was twelve. His parents were his parents, his life was completely ordinary. It was all in his head.

    He was fine.

    What he couldn't explain, he just ignored. It was nothing. It was just him being stupid. The pull to these... monsters. The way he felt this overwhelming need to be in their presence. That was all bullshit.

    Or that when he first saw them, when they opened up their jaws, showing their teeth.

    That he could understand every word they said.

    It was all bullshit.

    Summary

    They were fine. They were all fine.

    Which was why Steve didn’t tell them that he wasn’t.
    The others were all dealing with their issues; they’d all been through things so much worse than anything he had, and they were coping. They all seemed to rest well each night, and wake up the next day with smiles on their faces.

    Unlike him, they weren’t all plagued with nightmares, when he could even sleep at all. Dreams of dark skies filled with ash, red lightning splitting the clouds.
    No one else was waking up in the middle of the night, gasping for air from phantom tendrils wrapped around their throat, and a persistent chill down his spine that had become a constant sensation since their last foray into the Upside Down.

    It was nothing compared to what Eddie, Max, Hopper, or any of them had been through.

    -----

    Since their last journey into the Upside Down, Steve has been suffering in silence - nightmares, strange visions, dark veins twisting through his skin - but reaching out for help attracts attention that might make things even worse.
    ... and it doesn't help that he has to grapple with his feelings for the metalhead who is determined to help him no matter what.

    Summary

    Steve never cooked. Okay, he could make a grilled cheese and use the microwave - but he never cooked for himself in his entire life. That was his mom’s job, and when his parents were away he lived on the frozen dinners she made, soup, and fast food.

    But Eddie, Eddie liked home cooked meals. He talked about how he learned how to cook as a young kid, or how he cooked with his uncle. And he was good at it too, Eddie had made countless meals from him and Steve since they moved in together. And Steve, well he made frozen dinners and ordered take out in his nights to cook.

    Or

    the one where Steve tries to make dinner for Eddie it goes terrible.

    Summary

    As Eddie and Steve heal, a few things become apparent: 1. Eddie is crushing on the former King of Hawkins High who may also be crushing on the soon to be graduated Freak of Hawkins High, 2. Watching Steve be the best babysitter in town makes Eddie think things he shouldn't, 3. Their matching demobat bites may have more side effects than they originally thought.

    Summary

    Because - oh. Steve's cradling a little bundle against his chest, wrapped up tight in his arms like he's afraid to let it go. The bundle is the source of the strange little mewling sound, clearly it contains whatever pet Steve has managed to pick up. Except that, after half a second to register exactly what he's seeing and hearing, Eddie realises it's not a pet at all, and the sound is crying, not mewling. Because Steve Harrington is sitting in his armchair, livid and sleep deprived, and he's holding a- 

    "Holy shit," Dustin says. "Steve is that a baby?!" 

    Yeah. One of those. 

     

    Or: Vecna is dead and the gates have been closed for almost a year. Steve Harrington is about to embark on the scariest adventure of his life.
