    Summary

    When Billy moved across the country from California to Hawkins, Indiana with his father, step-mother, and step-sister, it was supposed to be a fresh start for all of them, to leave behind the ugly past in California, to go somewhere new where no one else would know them. It was supposed to be a good thing, according to his father.

    Billy had never expected it to go so wrong.

    Summary

    Mentions of past child abuse. Occasional: manhandling, mild slurs. ***WARNING: CH 25 "Goober" Contains Graphic Scenes of Abuse***

    Ch 1 - 2 years after S2. Susan & Neil gone, Max & Billy on their own with the help of Hopper. Very long - was originally stand alone.

    Ch 2 - 8 1 year after Ch 1. Max & Billy working things out. Steve introduces Billy to monster hunting. Max pushes him to embrace his sexuality, but it's slow & relatively tame (because 80s & writing graphic sex isn't my thing). Hawkins gang present & active.

    Ch 9 - epilogue. Max's high school graduation. Billy sucks at emotions. Steve is a champ. Fluffy ending.

    ***This is the end of the completed story. The following Chapters are add ons & requests:

    Summary

    The books weren’t the most peculiar thing she saw in that cabinet. She noticed a small stack of envelopes resting atop the book pile in the back. She grabbed the stack and stared blankly at the top envelope.

    To Max.

    OR: Max finds a bunch of letters from Billy following the Battle of Starcourt.

    Summary

    “El,” he huffs, hoping he doesn’t sound as choked as he feels. “Jesus. I almost didn’t recognize you.”

    --

    It's May 1989. After three years in California, Billy returns to Hawkins for Max's high school graduation. He thinks he'll find everything - and everyone - as he left them. Turns out time has moved on in Hawkins, too, and a certain "little girl" isn't so little anymore. Now that he's back, she's desperate to prove it to him.

    Too bad he swore he'll never fall for her. And if he does, there's no way her police chief father won't find out.

    Summary

    Steve learned when he was eight years old he wasn’t a Harrington.

    “You better do greater next time, you’re an investment.”

    Steve was twelve when he realized his house wasn’t a home, it was a storage unit, a coffin for every little expensive item his parents had purchased on their trips. And Steve, he was the most expensive let down in the house.

    Summary

    “What, you don’t have anything to say?” Steve presses and takes another step closer. “If you wanted to ruin your own fucking life, then fine, but you’ve dragged me down with you and there’s no coming back from this now! Not here! All you ever think about is your fucking self, you don’t give a shit about anybody else, and if I end up dead on the side of the goddamn road because of your stupid ass, I swear to god-”

    “Shut the fuck up!” Billy yells, cutting the other boy off. He can’t stand this right now, he can’t bear to stand here listening to Steve say these things to him, for something that he doesn’t even remember, for something that was probably a fucking accident, not something he really meant to do. Now Steve hates him too, and he should, he should fucking hate him, but Billy can’t take it, he can’t take seeing such hatred directed at him from the only boy he gives a shit about in this hick town.

    Summary

    They’ve reached the mouth of the kitchen, the chief in front and Max a few steps behind, shocked as her eyes fall to Neil’s bloodied form. Shock also flickers across the uniform’s face but it’s more subtle, his features remaining firm, brows jumping briefly before resuming a stern disposition.

    “Is he dead?” Max squawks, somewhere between stricken and relieved, eyes bugging.

    The chief crouches to feel for a pulse and Susan stiffens beside Billy.

    “He’s mad at me,” she whispers so quietly he believes he’s the only one who hears. She’s quaking scared and Billy takes a step in front of her, putting himself between her and the cop.

    “Yeah, Max, he’s dead,” he declares, “I killed him.”

    Summary

    Neil doesn’t like Billy coming home so late with Max after he sent him out to look for her, and especially not when he’s acting like he spent the time drinking or getting high. He makes his displeasure known.

    The following morning, Hopper stops Billy for speeding, before he can get to the hospital.

    Summary

    Billy had stormed into Steve's life very much like the song that blared from his speakers that first day. A hurricane that had wrecked Steve more than once. After he died, Steve was struck with grief over Billy, and it seemed everyone was having trouble coping with his death. But what does death even mean in a town like Hawkins, Indiana? The story of how Steve realizes his love for Billy, Neil snaps in the worst way, Billy survives and comes back to fight, and Steve and Billy find their place in a world filled with chaos and monsters.

    Summary

    “Hey,” Jim calls, when Hargrove doesn’t react at all, knocking again, louder and longer, “time to get up, kid.”

    Hargrove doesn’t so much as stir. On a whim, Jim tries the handle, a little taken aback to find the car unlocked. He pulls open the door, noting absently that the interior doesn’t smell of cheap beer and teenage hormones like he’d expected, and leans between the seats to shake Hargrove’s shoulder.

    His skin is ice cold. A sense of unease falls over Jim, and only grows stronger when he manages to turn Hargrove from his side onto his back, exposing his front, without the kid reacting at all.

    And then Jim gets a proper look at him. “Aw, shit.”

    [All Jim wants is a hot shower and some damn sleep. Instead, he adopts another stray.]

    Summary

    “Hmm,” Billy contemplated at Robin’s remark, “In California, there’s going to be no more kids screaming at me day and night. No more forking out all my extra cash so the gremlins can get out of my hair for five minutes. No more pesky lesbians dropping in whenever they feel like it to eat the food and interrupt planned bedroom activities.” Robin and Heather smirked at each other and then back at him, but Billy ignored it as he continued, “No more parental figures just ‘dropping in’ to see how we’re doing. No more kids demanding rides to the arcade on date night. And, I get to hog my boyfriend all to myself in our own apartment.” He gave the girls a dry look. “Oh yeah, I’m definitely going to miss it here.”

    Steve snorted into his drink. “I bet we’ll be back before Halloween to visit. Softie.”

    Summary

    "Power. Power is the only thing that matters in this world.” His father’s voice whispers in his ear. “And Submissive’s have none of that power, you understand me? Now take the pill—it’s for your own good, Billy, this is just how the world works."

    From the moment Billy Hargroves steps out of his blue Camaro with “Number of the Beast” blaring from his speakers, the entirety of the Submissive inclined population of Hawkin's High has their eye on him. He’s nothing like those sweet guys in the songs, nothing like the knight in shining armor that saves the girl in every love story. What he is though, is Dominant, strong, and hot as hell. Or at least that’s what they think.

    And as far as Billy's concerned, that's what they'll keep thinking.

    Summary

    “They-They-“ Billy stammers out, chest heaving and eyes wide.

    El’s not here.

    When Billy left, El was with him. They’d wanted to go out, had spent half an hour trying to convince Jim to let them go to the diner and meet up with Max, but El’s not here now.

    “Where’s El? Billy... Where is El?”
