    Summary

    “My grandmother taught me about selkies,” said the tattooed man. “Said it’s good luck for them to grace your ship. To treat ‘em right, and they’ll guide you safe.”

    It had seemed like a reasonable thing to believe.

    Summary

    It's just nail polish. It's not that deep.

    (It is that deep. About five hundred times that deep. The Mariana Trench of "that deep." She doesn't know how she didn't figure it out before.)

    Summary

    After Eddie narrowly survives the Upside Down, he wakes up handcuffed to a hospital bed. When his name is cleared, he thinks it's too good to be true that they all survived and that he isn't being convicted for murders he didn't commit. And maybe it is...

    Eddie was having a hard enough time live back in his trailer where he watched Chrissy die before Wayne died of a heart attack. Staying there without him is nearly impossible. Eddie isn't expecting anything when he vents to Steve about how hard it is sleeping there, but he isn't going to say no when Steve offers for him to move into the basement of his house.

    Steve asks Eddie to move in because he knows hard it can be sleeping and being alone in your home after finding out that monsters are real. But he also asks him because his parents are almost never around and he's lonely and maybe it would be nice not always coming home to an empty house.
