    Summary

    “So, what were you saying then? About your mom and the vacation?”

    “Well,” Mike says slowly, coming to sit upright again. “I may have told my mom - and I promise this makes way more sense in context - but I may have told her that we were…well - I maybe told her that we’re dating.”

    “What?”
     
    OR

    Mike and Will pretend to date. It goes exactly how you would imagine.

    Summary

    this moment reminds el of when they were younger, the first week of her life, when she met mike and lucas and dustin. when she was hiding in mike's basement like a stray dog he was feeding. when she was so, so scared but her friends made it better, even when they didn't like her. when mike taught her what the word friend meant.

    their roles were reversed, back then. mike spent a lot of his time comforting her. he'd sit next to her, talking away, and suddenly she wouldn't feel so alone. she wouldn't feel like a monster, or a weapon, or a freak. she'd just be a kid.

    el doesn't think she'll ever be able to fully repay mike for everything he did for her. she used to try, thinks that's why she stayed with him for so long even when it was getting really bad. but she's realized that love isn't a transaction. she doesn't owe anyone anything.

    but she wants to give this to him. she wants to help. because she loves him, and that's a choice she's making.

    (or: gender crises are best served rare, but we also serve well-done.)

    Summary

    “My bad.” Eddie finds himself apologizing. “I just, uh, can’t remember your first name.”

    Her glare smooths away at the admission, toothy grin coming right back. “Oh, then don’t sweat it. I mean. Still don’t want you to call me Buckley because it sounds way too manly, but you get a one time pass. It’s Robin. Rob if I like ya.” She sticks her hand out and Eddie blinks, not expecting it. “And you’re Eddie Munson.”

    So she knows his name. Alright... That’s not necessarily unexpected, he is a bit infamous around this parts, but he’d love to know the backstory there. Robin Buckley definitely isn’t the type to buy drugs. Or throw herself headfirst into a mosh pit. So where? “Steve’s mentioned you.” She supplies, which really gets his eyebrows to shoot up, because what in the actual hell.

    “Harrington?!” He splutters, prompting another bark-laugh.

    “The very one. Oh man.” Her hand is still just hanging there, an afterthought, the other half curled around a drumstick that seems to have randomly appeared. “You’re like, his mortal enemy, for real-for real.”

    -

    A small interlude featuring everyone's favorites. Because they deserve to be friends.

    Summary

    She wishes she could remember what Steve looked like before.

    She wishes she could have been best friends with anyone else.

    When she finds Steve lifeless beside his poolside in Loch Nora, she wishes for the first time in years she could have been anyone but Robin Buckley.

    It's a shame that it takes Steve Harrington almost dying for Robin Buckley to realize they are best friends.
