    Summary

    "It's not your fault, some tiny voice at the back of his mind tries to tell him, even though the entire rest of his consciousness seems to have very much left the building. No one would be able to resist that. He's -- magnetic. Gravitational. You can't not look.

    And he is looking. He is very much looking. At Eddie.

    At Eddie's dick."

    Or: Steve Harrington and the Quest for One Fantastical, Wonderful, So Good, Really Great Dick.

    Summary

    Instead of taking one of the stools, Eddie hops up to sit on the counter next to Steve's elbow, letting his bare feet dangle. He picks up the mug, cradling it in long, ringed fingers and purses his lips to blow across the steaming surface. Steve feels his face heat and looks away. He can't put his finger on it - what changed between them, and when it happened.

    He just knows that it did.

    ***

    Steve can't sleep. Eddie helps him to relax. This is a gift for my beloved cjmarlowe. We've been writing requests for each other for years and, this time, she requested "first time" and "kitchen furniture". I hope the island counts.

    Summary

    The problem with having an eidetic memory, Enola discovers, is that she can recall with perfect clarity the sounds Tewkesbury made in that thin, hazy half-dark.

    Summary

    Steve stopped stock still and stared at Eddie.

    “Don’t,” the other man warned, holding up a finger.

    Steve gaped at him. “What are you wearing?” he asked in something akin to horror.

    “I said don’t,” Eddie repeated desperately. “It’s fucking… I had a clothes disaster! Okay?!”

    Robin emerged from the back and barked out a laugh.

    “Oh my God, you’re dressed like Steve!” she cackled. “Gross!”

     

     

     
    Or five times Eddie made Fashion Choices (and one time Steve did something about it).

    Summary

    Wayne looks down at the kid standing in the driveway.
    He’s a little thing - Edward, the social worker had called him - dressed in ratty jeans and a baggy sweatshirt despite the overwhelming heat. He's feral, twitchy, hurt and hurting and Wayne loves him immediately, incredibly, irrevocably.
    “You comin’ in?” Wayne asks knowing, in the soul of him, that this is gonna be the long haul and realizing he doesn’t mind, actually.
    Eddie nods.
    That’s how it starts.

    Or: Wayne's life from Eddie to Steve.
