    Summary

    The final puzzle piece clicks into place. All his fragmented dreams, all the possibilities he has seen, all the scenarios he has followed to their end—everything has led to this scene, this moment. And, closing his eyes now, he can’t see past it.

    A mistake, the entity whispers, pleased. You made a mistake. You gave me a way out, and you gave me a way to you.

    Summary

    Last year during summer El had been stuck in the cabin with only a noisy fluttering fan for company and the summer months had dragged on endlessly.

    For El, who had grown up in a temperature controlled windowless room with neat rows of white tiles and to whom things like the wind, sunshine, rain and snow had only been concepts she had read about in storybooks, the relentless heat and humidity had been almost unbearable.
    _______

    A collection of memories from El's perspective during the summer of 1985.

    Summary

    The name on her adoption certificate is Jane Eleanor Hopper. Eleven was just too weird of a middle name to slide past the government, so Eleanor it was. But she knows, just as they all do, that it’s Eleven, El, and sometimes, Ellie.

    Summary

    Dustin is not a hero, not the way that Mike and Lucas believe themselves to be. And he is not the bringer of wisdom, like Will. No, he is not a hero, but he is loyal. He is loyal and practical and stubborn, everything a good hero needs by his side. When he reads Lord of the Rings, Dustin sees himself in Sam. When he watches Star Wars, he sees parts of himself in Chewbacca and R2-D2. Dustin might not be heroic, but he is loyal.

    Dustin is the kid that agrees to come on the quest and fills his backpack full of food. They roll their eyes then, but when hours have passed and they are all hungry, they are grateful for it.

    Summary

    Family is not always who you are born with. Family is not always blood. Family is who you die for. Family is who you live for. And this is what Max lives for: Will’s quiet shy smiles, Dustin’s toothy laughter, Mike’s eye rolls, and El’s look of wonder at a good story. She lives for Steve’s hair ruffles and affectionate dumbass, delivered with a smile.

    Summary

    Lucas is a man of action. When everyone else (Mike) was fawning over a girl he was pretty sure is alien, he got out and did things, actually looking for Will. When Dustin got clouded by science and discovery, Lucas actually reached out to the fiery girl and rescued her. He is the knight in this tale, sweeping the damsel away from her tower and riding away into the sunset. And yet, in the end, she saves herself. And that is why he likes her.

    Summary

    The booming movie voice has been droning on this whole time, but Will hasn’t been paying much attention—and as soon as he looks up at the screen, everything goes black. 

    A few people gasp, taken aback by the sudden darkness.

    “Did the power go out?” Mike says lowly, and Will opens his mouth to respond when something like lightning hits him full force.

    It's the summer of 1985, and more than anything, Will and El want to put the past behind them. El is studying hard, trying to join the Party at school in the coming year, and Will is slowly readjusting to post-Upside Down life. But when a blackout sweeps through Hawkins and both feel the darkness stir once again, normal might just have to wait.

    Summary

    “Who’s there?” he calls, a chill running up his spine. “Where am I?”

    “Will.” And then she’s there, right there, like he’s been seeing in his dreams so frequently all the way back since December. There’s relief in her voice. “You’re here.”

    //

    That’s when El understands, even through the haze of pain: the monster was never chasing after her. It wanted Will the whole time. And she let it happen.

    Summary

    “Sometimes I forget,” Will begins, letting go of her wrist so that he can bury his head in his hands, “that you’re the only person who understands.” He huffs out a bitter laugh. “You know—what’s happening all up in my head. And… I wish we were friends. I really do.”

    or:

    The first few months of being Will and El of the Byers family.
