    Summary

    Max had never offered her heart up for the slashing, but Eleven had somehow stolen it and split it in half before she'd even realised about her unusual adoration for the other girl.

    The 'butterflies in the stomach', the 'jittering electricity', the 'it takes my breath away', the 'I don't see anyone else, but you' was real, but the 'it'd never happen' was somehow more real.

    Summary

    Is Steve’s forgiveness of everything, including violence against him, mercy or naivety? More importantly, is it possible to change a person through love alone?

If I write out everything that's in my head, will any of you be interested in reading it? Or do you want me to just jump to the next plot point?**

    Summary

    After Nancy drunkenly confessed to Steve, one thing leads to another. Now Steve has to figure out what Billy means to him, and if they could possibly have a relationship. While on the other hand, Billy doesn't know if he wants Steve to follow him down this path. It will probably take a group of preteens to help them solve their issues and find themselves.

    Summary

    Billy isn't the nicest person at the school and he knows it. He beat up Steve, constantly harasses Max, and constantly puts down Lucas Sinclair. He knows that he will never have a chance in Hell with Steve, his actions promising it.

    But that all changes as Neil does something to Billy, making him scarred for life. And he knows that while he shouldn't rely on anyone, not knowing what's to come next, he will always be glad that Harrington is there, to make his life a little easier.

    Summary

    Curiosity killed the cat—

    Dark skies, crackling in the air, a shriek that echoes in the air.

    He doesn't think, doesn't breathe, keeps his eyes trained to the crack under the door, his fingers tight around his weapon. He thinks of flaming hair, of warm brown eyes, of strong fingers and rough palms. He thinks of false warmth and biting cold. He thinks about how he can't really feel his feet and how he's fairly certain he has lost feeling in his fingers. He thinks of white hot rage and nauseating regret. He thinks of panicked, awe-filled eyes and the crunch of snow under his feet as he wishes it was sand.

    He thinks of doing better.

    —But satisfaction brought it back.

     

    OR

     

    In which Billy does his best to change while simultaneously having his world turned upside down.

    Summary

    Hopper sighed and scratched his beard. “Look, kid, the reason why I'm offering you a second chance is because you need it. You don't deserve it, but you need it. So I got your back.”

    Or how, on his harrowing road to redemption (because second chances don't come easy), Billy Hargrove loses a good-for-nothing father, but gains a tough little sister, a giant older brother, a preppy boyfriend, and an obnoxious pack of nerds, not necessarily in this particular order.

    Summary

    Billy had never cared for the kids Steve called his own. He had already started tolerating them for Max’s sake and not because she almost busted his nuts that one time with the baseball bat. But when Steve had looked at him with those big brown eyes, begging him to keep an eye on the kids while he was on some ‘vacation’ with his asshole parents Billy couldn’t say no.

    So fuck Steve for putting him in all the situations that followed that conversation. He owed him a ton of blow jobs for all the shit he had to put up with now.

    Five times Billy protected their kids and the one time they protected him...sort of.

    Summary

    It's Parents' Day at Hawkins Elementary. Steve doesn't expect his old high school rival to be there too. He also doesn't expect the heart-to-heart that follows. Then again, Steve's learned not to expect anything in life, so it kind of works out.

    Summary

    Later, she will remember how his voice sounded and think that maybe that wasn’t anger; maybe it was fear. And maybe those two sound very similar coming from Billy.
