    Summary

    It sounds a bit like something his mum might say, even. Billy is thirteen years old and he wonders if his mum is somewhere, dancing in the sand or with the breeze blowing in her hair, and listening to this same song, right now. If this is what she’d wondered, when she’d left.

    Summary

    A little glimpse into Billy's childhood.
    He just wants to make something special for his mom.

    'A large green sea turtle.
    His mom's favourite animal ever.
    She'd told him once when they were at the beach together. He'd been showing her how he could paddle out on his surfboard and she'd laughed and called him her little turtle.
    Billy had scowled. Didn't want to be a dumb, plodding turtle. He was fast- like a shark, one of those fierce ones with the beady eyes, zipping round the sea and biting anyone who bothered him; anyone who made him angry or upset or feel small or scared would get a chomp.’

    Summary

    “Billy...let me teach you a spell. One that will help you when you’re in trouble.”

    That perked him awake, “A spell?”

    His mother's smile faltered, “I only hope you would never have to use it.”

    Summary

    The first thing Susan sees of her is a cigarette held delicately out through the window, between fingers with painted red nails. Then she steps out, and her hair is long and wavy and blonde and beautiful. She’s dressed in slick black slacks and a blouse, a glittering medallion around her neck, her lips red like her nails and her eyes blue like the California ocean. There is no doubt that this is Billy’s mother. Susan’s only seen one picture of her, and it was quickly hidden by Billy when they were moving to Hawkins.

    “Susan?” she says, and god, even her voice sounds like bells. Like a melody. A California girl like no other.

    Summary

    She found them in his sock drawer, buried deep under bunched-up socks and banknotes tossed haphazardly over the top. She shouldn’t have pried, but she saw her name on one of the letters in Billy’s messy, scrawling script, and she just couldn’t help herself.

    The first letter was written on crumpled paper like it had been balled up and unwrapped too many times to count, and the page was now smooth and soft. It was tearstained, and Max ran her fingers over the darkened spots. ‘Little shit’ was crossed out at the top, and it started with Max.

    Summary

    About To Have The First Four Chapters Rewritten!

    'Max vividly remembers how diligent Billy was in California. Careful about everything from the way he spoke to what to he ate, even the way he looked at people. And he was always careful with Max. But it always felt different. As if with her it was because he cared. He cared about what happened to both of them.

    Sure, Indiana Billy had gotten cold, harsh, and abrasive, but Max always imagined he didn’t want to be that way. Sometimes she’d see him when he thought no one was looking. His eyes would stay sharp, but his gaze would fall heavy. She liked to imagine that things could be like they used to, but time passed and the choppy waters between them seemed to barely calm at all.

    Max wished the whole party could see the side of him that had protected her, that had cared for her, that had been the world to her. If Neil was gone Billy could become himself again.'

    After the Battle of Starcourt Billy's broken body is rushed to the local hospital where he teters on the edge of death. What follows changes the whole party, and brings two rivals closer than one of them could have ever imagined.

    Summary

    During gym class they played basketball, Steve's team (shirts) against Billy's team (skins), and Steve was good but Billy was better. Billy not only seemed to take it serious but also seemed to see it as a chance to tease Steve as much as possible. It was during this game, when Steve and Billy had collided into each other and crashed to the floor that he saw it. Something he'd only ever seen of similar fashion before on Eleven. It was there on the inside of Billy's left wrist like a tattoo.

    005.

    Summary

    Billy loathed that speech more than he loathed himself, even more than he loathed Harrington, stupidly perfect Harrington who made Billy heart skip and leap who made Billy blush at an insult, who made Billy nervous and not just out of fear, he made Billy scared way too scared
    Or alternatively Billy has a crush and reacts like a first grader

    (Everyone in st is in this but i didn't want to clog the tags for minor)

    Summary

    Sometimes he wonders if he even has a heart, not just a hole his in chest, stuffed with scar tissue and anger. Thinks it's her fault as much as Neil's that he's turned out a bit of a bastard, that if she hadn't abandoned him, he would have become a better person or something.

    (pretty much pre-S3)
