    Summary

    “Will,” El says gently, moving back into his space. “Your nose.”

    He’s suddenly aware of the warm sticky feeling on his upper lip, and when he wipes a hand under his nose his fingers come away wet and red.


    He’s about to reply when a chime rings in his ears, so loud it echoes inside his head, and he startles. “What the hell?”

    Max’s gaze snaps to him. “What’s wrong?”

    He frowns at her. “Did you hear that?”

    Her eyes widen, her entire body going tense. “Hear what? Was it a clock?”

    Oh, shit. “Is this one of the—”

    He never finishes the sentence, because in the next moment, searing pain blooms in his head, far worse than any of the migraines he’s been getting since he crossed the Indiana border. It’s so intense that he staggers, vision whiting out, and he’s pretty sure he’s curled up on the ground—he can’t be sure; the world has blended sound and image and light and his mind is scrambling to make sense of it.

    Don’t be afraid, someone says, but Will shies away from the voice, pressing the heels of his palms into his eye sockets. Welcome home.

    Summary

    Steve Harrington was the absolute master of mixtapes. No one understood it, but he just knew what worked. And, of course very few people actually had one of the coveted Harrington Mixtapes. A scattered handful of crushes, girls he’d tried to impress in high school. But there was a small collection of mixtapes in Hawkins with real meaning. Given to good friends and trustworthy allies.

    Robin held the mixtape record for a long time, holding three mixtapes in her possession by the time Vecna attacked them all.

    At least, Robin held the record until the end of the summer of 1986. The summer Steve dedicated to creating a mixtape for Eddie Munson. And maybe, maybe he just so happened to fall in love in the process.

    Summary

    It wasn't supposed to go like this.

    Steve was supposed to work with Robin at the Family Video, flirt with the many many girls who came to browse the expansive selection of VHSes, go on some dates, and hopefully find The One.

    It was supposed to be a notably upside-down free year.

    And, hey, for what it's worth? He wasn't supposed to be pinned down on a mattress by Eddie Munson either.

    And he certainly wasn't supposed to be enjoying it.

    But that's getting a bit ahead of things…

    Summary

    That’s when Five realises that for the first time in his life, he doesn’t want to fix anything about when or where he is. He’s happy. Shit.

    Landing with Klaus in 1960 hadn't been part of Five's world-saving plan, but since it's happened he tries to make the best of it. Bit by bit they settle into a life neither of them thought they could have. When it comes under threat, Five is willing to do anything to protect their lifestyle, whether Klaus wants him to or not.
