    Summary

    Steve spent a lot of his life trying to prove himself. He knows people think he's dumb, but he's good at being independent. He just wishes someone would notice him sometimes.
    or
    5 times steve needs help (ranging from his early childhood to young adulthood) and one time someone finally helps him.
    This will have more chapters but Ao3 won't let me change the complete status for some reason.

    Summary

    It hurt when Nancy followed Johnathan back to California, but who was he to have a say on what she did when he wasn't even a part of her life anymore?

    It hurt when Dustin and Mike pushed him away and constantly showed him the same anger that he had harboured when he was a teen.

    It hurt when Lucas blames Max's condition on him.

    Steve is hanging on by a thread after the battle with Vecna, and with his house gone and nobody to rely on, he finds himself revisiting old memories.

    Summary

    Look, Eddie never intended to be one of those Omegas, okay. He knew he was too mouthy, too bold, too much for the vast, vast majority of Alphas out there. Or at least the slim pickings that Hawkins, Indiana had to offer. So, he had resigned himself to his fate of being a lonely old spinster Omega until he could get enough dough together to leave this place in the dust.

    Until Chrissy. Until Vecna. Until Steve Fucking Harrington stormed into his life like a blood-spattered, bat-biting madman of a white knight and saved his ass from being eaten alive in a hell dimension.

    Hell of a way to start their epic romance story, if Eddie said so himself. It’s something straight out of one of the campaigns he’d write, but now he gets to fucking live it and ain’t life grand?

    Yup, Eddie’s pretty convinced he has the greatest fucking Alpha on the planet and he’s not shy about telling anyone who will listen *why*.

    Or 5 reasons why Eddie thinks Steve is the greatest Alpha ever and 1 time Steve reminds Eddie why he's pretty sure he got the good end of this bargain.

    Summary

    "Red touches black, poison lack. Red touches yellow, kill a fellow." A silly rhyme, to help remember the difference between a harmless kingsnake and a deadly coral snake. Wayne taught it to him when he was fourteen, and Calpurnia settled in the form of a scarlet kingsnake.

    Given the way people recoil when they see his daemon, he's pretty sure no one else in Hawkins has ever heard it before. Or maybe it doesn't matter - maybe Eddie is the one they think is toxic.

    ****

    Vecna is defeated, Max is saved, and Eddie's name has been cleared. All should be right in the world of Hawkins, and Eddie's only concern should be his inconvenient crush on Steve Harrington. But there are people who still think Eddie is guilty of murder, and they're not willing to let it go.

    Summary

    “Are you — are you sure this is okay? You really don’t have to —”

    Eddie’s voice is as shaky as the way he’s trembling right now in Steve’s grip, and Steve doesn’t even think about it before he does it, running his spread palm slowly up and down the curve of Eddie’s spine. Steve isn’t sure if the hitch of breath he hears is coming from him or from Eddie, or maybe from them both when he says, “Um – isn’t that the question I’m supposed to be asking you, Eds?”

    “No.”

    “Why not?”

    Eddie’s voice is small, but this time it doesn’t shake a bit as he whispers, “Because I trust you.”
