    Summary

    And the man standing next to her –

    Well, he looks exactly what the Devil would look like if he was taking mortal form to tempt sinners: slender as a rail, pale as the moon, dark-haired and dressed all in black, and wearing a huge red ruby on a chain around his neck. Quite frankly, he should make haste to remove it, if he doesn’t want someone else in this roistering shithole to do it for him; it’s worth more than what all the White Horse’s patrons make in a year. Yet for all that, he’s not uncomely, and Hob is not uninterested, or unwilling, if that possibility is on the table. Just to check, he flashes a dazzling smile at the stranger, which is not returned; he is as unreadable as a statue. But he is no statue, he is a man, and his voice is uncommonly deep as he speaks:

    “Did I hear you say,” the pale stranger asks, “that you have no intention of ever dying?”

    Hob Gadling shrugs. No point in denying it.

    “Yeah.”

    Summary

    The life and times of one Robert Gadling.
    --

    Excerpt:

    Hob ought to take the hint; he knows he should. A crystal-clear rejection of his friendship. Message received. But Hob Gadling didn’t survive plague and war, weather years of hardships and heartbreak and Thatcher-era Britain, without a profound sense of stubbornness about him.

    Unyielding hope, however foolish it seemed sometimes, got him here. It’s why he’s still alive.

    Summary

    It’s probably going to go down in history as the worst kiss Steve Harrington ever got, but Eddie doesn’t give a fuck. He isn’t going to get another chance so he’s working with what he’s got. It’s less of a kiss, and more of a slide of lips, wet with blood and tears but he feels Harrington’s grip tighten on the back of his shirt and he pulls back. He reaches up with the hand he can still feel and pushes back a strand of hair that had fallen in Steve’s face, smearing blood along his temple as he does.

    “Sorry. Couldn’t die without knowing what that felt like.”
