    Summary

    Steve jolts awake, staring up into the dull beige of the camper’s ceiling. There’s a distinct brown stain, likely from a leak. The cushion of the back seat is hard against his back, and if he strains he could hear yelling and laughing from the outside.

    He wonders if he’s finally lost his fucking mind.

    --or, Steve relives the day of the end over and over again.

    Summary

    Steve gets out of the car first, not minding the rain soaking into his clothes. He walks up into the familiar driveway. Two days ago he couldn’t even remember his mother’s name. Now, he thinks that if he closes his eyes he could picture exactly the image of his parents standing on the doorway, beckoning him to come inside the house.

    Luring him into the belly of the beast.

    It starts at a house, and it starts with a door that leads to a room that doesn’t exist. Creel House and all the darkness it holds within.

    “Here. We’re here.” Steve announces, taking a deep breath. And then, in a smaller voice, he says “I’m home.”

    Summary

    Steve knows he’s a monster.

    It’s always been in his head that he’s a freak, something cruel and unforgiving and something that can’t get into its own goddamn pool because he still feels the dark pressure of the Upside Down just beyond it, the vengeful eyes of Barbara Holland inside it. He still feels like he’ll take off his shirt and the dark imprints of his wings, just inches under the skin of his back, will be tattooed on him like a brand for all his new family to see. And he’s terrified of that most of all ‒ the unshakeable imprint of every monstrous thing he is, every terrible thing he’s done, permanent and glaring in the faces of everything anyone knows about Steve ‘the hair’ Harrington.

    Or, Steve Harrington and the mortifying ordeal of being known (and the subsequent ordeal of being loved).

    Summary

    Steve’s a freshman, a benchwarmer, new blood, and he’s drawn the short straw. David Liefeld, Captain and star Center of the Hawkins Tigers, pulled him aside, rough, warm hand on his shoulder, and said, “Hey, get us some good shit for the party on Friday, alright?”

    Steve hadn’t told Tommy about it, even if Tommy would probably have a better idea for getting drugs than this. Steve’s fucking committed, though. He doesn’t want to be the freshie that goes crying to his friend like some kind of queer.

    This is why Steve is standing in the middle of the fucking forest in front of a dilapidated picnic table instead of hanging out at the quarry like everyone else. This is why Steve is waiting for the Freak to arrive - the only dealer he knows about for sure, who comes to this table at this time and sells to anyone who wants to buy.
