    Summary

    The summer of 1985. Richie Tozier is nine years old and is looking forward to spending his time off of school with his friends. Two weeks into their vacation and suddenly Richie’s being sent to Hawkins, Indiana to stay with his aunt, uncle, and cousins for the rest of the season while his parents “work things out”, whatever that means. Now stuck in an unfamiliar town that’s somehow both larger and more boring than his own with none of his friends and much stricter rules, Richie doesn’t know what to do except annoy his cousins as much as possible, and try not to think about his friends.

    Summary

    Billy Hargrove was just forced out of LA and into Hawkins. He hates the town, hates his dad, hates everything about this. However, Steve Harrington isn't too bad on the eyes.

    Steve Harrington is still recovering from what happened last year. He isn't popular anymore, and he's glad of it. And right now he's worried about his attraction to the new kid Billy Hargrove.

    This is an AU without the Upside Down. Mainly as a way to cope with Billy's death in season 3, but also to educate the teenagers who write about this and accidentally make the story homophobic due to lack of sensitivity readers. AKA I found a story, it ended up being bad, so I decided to try and do it better.

    Tags will be updated as the story progresses.

    Summary

    People are watching, he knows. Ever since he roared into the parking lot of Hawkins High yesterday, all eyes have been on him. Not like there is anything else going on here. He got plenty of lip-glossed smiles and thumps on the back today, each one asking if he’s excited for the party tonight. Billy does not give a shit about who is going or what their costume is. But he winks and grins and tells em all, “Better have some good fucking beer. I’ve been feelin thirsty.” The boys hoot and the girls swoon and everyone treats him like he is the best thing to ever grace the halls of Hawkins High.

    “I said, c’mere, Harrington,” Billy repeats, eyeing Steve like it’s a challenge.

    Steve doesn’t lose challenges.

    Summary

    It's July, and he's finally excited about summer.
    He's been working for about a month now, processing the fact that he hasn't been accepted to any college and that apparently, with losing his high school crown, he has also lost his charm.
    That doesn't stop him though, from greeting tanned and sweaty girls with a cheerful "Ahoy!". They usually don’t respond at all and then just proceed with their order without even saying hello.
    It doesn't bother him, maybe he's doing it out of habit, but mostly it's his bet with Robin: 30 bucks for the first one that manages to pick up a girl, 20 bucks as a bonus if it’s with that ridiculous navy attire on.

     

    Steve is trying to get past his feelings for Robin but life makes it pretty hard, and to make matters worse he seems to be running into Billy quite a bit.
    Set during season 3, no uspide-down AU!

    Summary

    It started off as an itch beneath the surface of his skin, no matter how hard Steve pressed his nails could never dig through, could never scratch the discontent that simmered just beneath.

    Tommy says it’s nothing, signs of an early rut approaching, meds wearing off after taking them for so long. Only Steve knows Tommy is full of shit and this doesn’t feel like a rut.

    Oh I, wish I could synthesize
    A picture-perfect guy

    Kind and ain’t afraid to cry
    Or treat his momma right
    That's right, that's what I like
