    Summary

    Mike is the son of a duchess. The Byers are merchants in the nearby town. As children, they met in the woods, and for seven years they played there together - and fell in love, in the sweet-savage way that children do. When the House of Wheeler was relocated by order of the king, sweet, noble-hearted twelve-year-old Mike tearfully promised he’d come back and marry Will when they were older.
    Over ten years pass. They haven’t seen each other since, and Will doesn’t expect to. Until a red-haired swordmaiden from House Wheeler arrives at their doorstep, delivering a letter. It's Mike, Will's childhood sweetheart that he hasn't felt heartbreak for in years, asking if he wants to uphold their childhood promise.
    Lonnie is ecstatic. The Byers haven't been doing well, of late, and this could be their out. Will isn't so sure.
    But when they arrive to the Wheeler Mansion, they discover another wrinkle: while Mike promised himself to Will over a decade ago, his parents just recently promised him to Elenor Jane of the House of Brenner.
    The debate now stands - which promise is more legitimate in the eyes of society and the law?
    And more importantly, do either of them still want each other after all this time?

    Summary

    Billy started shifting blankets, finding Steve’s face. “Talk to me.” One of Steve’s eyes opened, big and round and full of something Billy couldn’t place. “You okay?”
    “I went to the doctor today. I was up all night throwing up.” Billy kissed his forehead.
    “What’s the verdict? You alright?” Steve shifted, sitting up, holding a soft pillow to his chest. “Flu? Strep? Hand-foot-and-mouth disease?” Steve didn’t laugh. Didn’t even smile.
    Billy was fucking worried.
    “I, um, I’m, I’m pregnant.”
    Billy’s heart fucking stopped.

    Summary

    “You got Bryce Shaw, I was doing you a favor. Pretty sure the guy has herpes and if he doesn’t, he’s definitely a republican.”

    “Sure bu-”

    Billy cuts in, waving his uncapped highlighter at Steve, “And you know what’s worse than a republican with herpes, Harrington? A gay republican with herpes.”

    Steve scrunches his nose, “I feel like that's homophobic somehow?”

    “I’m gay, I’m allowed to say it.”

    “Uh, I don’t think that's how th-y’know what, I don't care. So, what? We’re just gonna have to pretend to be some loved-up couple for the night?”

    billy and steve pretend to be boyfriends so steve doesn't have to date a frat boy douchebag.

    Summary

    When Barb wakes up in the Upside Down, it's clear something is very different. She's different, changed forever. Trying to come to terms with that and cope with the realization of abandonment, fear, and a sense of loss unlike anything she thought she would ever experience, she's left to wonder now what her purpose is. Why is she still here? Perhaps she can make something of it. After all, in a state like this, there's unfinished business left to take care of.

    Summary

    You want stranger things thrills I’ve got stranger things thrills
    For the spooky season I have 4 spooky tales about the teens who lived in Hawkins, Indiana on Halloween in the 80’s.

    Story one is a 80’s teen slasher with the stranger things cast (only the older teens) and 2 OCs set in 1984 at Tina’s house party.
    Story two has a kegboys focus and it looks like the boys are dealing with a stalker.
    Story three is a Harringrove and Heather/ Robin double date gone wrong featuring clowns.
    Story four is harringrove focused Max makes an appearance and sadly so does Neil
    I like to think all of these stories are connected in some way but you can interpret them differently if you like.
    HAPPY HALLOWEEN ;)
    I'll have treats for y'all on Halloween

    Summary

    “Nancy?” he tried again. She didn’t open her eyes as she groaned louder. “Did you hear something?” he asked. She shook her head and stole more of the covers. He gathered the curtains covering the window and peaked below, into the lit pool.

    Nothing.

    He jumped when he thought he caught a glimpse of Barb’s white eyes and broken, square lenses in the window’s reflection.

    Summary

    It's been three years since that week in November. While the majority of Hawkins are blissfully oblivious to the stranger things that occurred, a select few can still feel the ache from the mark left behind.

    They work, they study, they remain vigilant, and they keep their secrets while trying not to come apart at the seams.

    But just beneath the surface, someone is thriving and growing stronger as they hold onto the chain that is the fragile barrier between both worlds.

    What will happen when someone finally offers her a chance to break free?

    Chaos.

    Summary

    Jessica Byers thought her life was...complicated. But then her little brother goes missing, and her mom starts talking to the lights in their house, and suddenly - "complicated" is the understatement of the year.
    //
    CH16 preview:

    Steve catches sight of Nancy’s bandaged hand and pushes inside, demanding to know what’s going on. He falters when he sees...everything.

    “What is..what is going on?” he stutters, rooted in place, gaze jumping from the baseball bat to the Christmas lights strung around to Jessica’s own wrapped hand.

    “You need to go, Steve,” Jessica says, failing to keep the note of desperation out of her voice. She walks over to him, trying to guide him back to the door, but he spins out of her grip.

    “Whoa, whoa, what-”

    “You need to leave, I’m not asking you I’m telling you-”

    Steve balks. “What is that smell? Is that...gasoline?!”

    Click. “Get out, Steve!”

    They both freeze at Nancy’s shout. She’s circled behind them and taken the pistol from the end table and is aiming it straight at Steve.
