  1. Summary

    'I stand in Minas Anor, the Tower of the Sun,' she said; 'and behold! the Shadow has departed! I will be a shieldmaiden no longer, nor vie with the great Riders, nor take joy only in the songs of slaying. I will be a healer, and love all things that grow and are not barren.' And again she looked at Faramir. 'No longer do I desire to be a queen,' she said.

    Then Faramir laughed merrily. 'That is well,' he said; 'for I am not a king. Yet I will wed with the White Lady of Rohan, if it be her will. And if she will, then let us cross the River and in happier days let us dwell in fair Ithilien and there make a garden. All things will grow with joy there, if the White Lady comes.'

    Summary

    When Eddie confesses he’s never got the big deal about kissing, Steve teases him about it, saying maybe it’s because Eddie’s a bad kisser. Pride wounded, Eddie can’t let that go and decides he needs an unbiased opinion on his kissing skills. It’s weird but it’s only one kiss, no big deal, right? So, Steve says yes.

    Eddie gets the answer he wanted, but then he and Steve are left with a whole new set of questions to navigate. Now they just have to find new answers.

    Summary

    ‘Proud owner of twenty years pent-up hormones and counting.’ Eddie sighed, looking up at the sky and muttering something under his breath that Steve didn’t catch.

    Steve was so surprised he stopped walking. ‘What?’

    Eddie loudly didn't say anything, continuing on their route. When Steve caught up to him, he was bright red in the face.

    ‘No way,’ Steve said, stunned. ‘You’re a virgin?’

    Eddie rolled his eyes. ‘Shut up, man.’

    ‘No, I didn’t mean – just. Really?’ Steve asked. ‘You've really never ...?’

    ‘I run a DnD group, got held back in school twice, and live in a trailer with my uncle,’ Eddie said flatly. ‘What part of that screams dick magnet to you?’

    Summary

    Steve has heard about this. In fact, Dustin would not shut up about it a few days ago, when Steve had picked him up from a D&D session at the Wheeler’s – "Eddie says he got a motorcycle, which is so badass, I wonder what it looks like, why aren’t you that badass, Steve," etcetera. And since then it's been popping up in conversations everywhere, all these offhand comments about how loud or fast or cool or stupid it is, depending on the source. He'd acted disinterested. He was disinterested.

    Now he sees it for himself, sees Eddie leaning over it with one boot planted firmly on the ground, lifting up a pair of goggles to squint towards the storefront, and, well. Steve's always known he’s been lying to himself – about a lot of things, actually – but now he really feels ridiculous.

    Summary

    They stare at each other for a couple excruciating, frozen seconds (move, Munson, what are you doing, move!) and then Steve frowns and he says, "You're gay, right?" and Eddie's been expecting this talk, but he wasn't expecting to do it quite like this, with Steve quite like that (though it's not like he hasn't thought about it, Eddie's got a very active imagination, okay?)

    Eddie nods, mutely, trying his best to keep his eyes on Steve’s face, but he keeps glancing down because movement in his peripheral vision, right? It’s basically a survival reflex.

    Steve’s silent for a few seconds, shifts on the bed a little. Eddie Does Not Look.

    "That must be pretty hard around here,” Steve says.

    Eddie nods again. Why are they having this conversation??

    And then the next thing out of Steve’s mouth is: “You wanna stay? You could watch, I don't mind."
