    Summary

    Harrington breezes past him without so much as a glance his way. He feels the heat rise in him again, more insistent this time, and in a blink, he finds his fist has clenched itself resolutely in Harrington’s preppy jacket.

    Harrington looks at him with—Billy’s vision goes red—polite confusion. Like he doesn’t know him. Like he isn't afraid.

    In the back of his mind, Billy can feel his conscience trying to reason with him. Remember when you used to be happy? It asks him. Remember how you used to smile and people would smile back at you, and they liked you? It prompts, showing him those same faded memories that Max’s superhero friend had dredged up.

    Billy breathes, and Harrington continues to look concerned, and finally Billy releases him as he thinks, Fine. Thinks: This isn’t my Harrington anyway.

    -

    Or, the one where Billy Hargrove is snatched from the claws of death at the very last minute, tumbled into a world that isn't quite his own, and manages to learn a few things about himself along the way.

    Summary

    He doesn’t yell, but Susan still jumps a little out of shock. Billy doesn’t speak like that to her. Billy doesn’t dare to, because, because Neil will-

    Neil will hear. He’s just loud enough that Neil hears him from the living room, and comes marching into the kitchen.

    “What did you say?” he hisses. “What the hell did I just hear you say?!”

    Not on his birthday, Susan thinks. Please, not on his birthday of all days.

    “Well?!” Neil implores.

    Billy does something that shocks Susan to her core. Something he has never done before.

    His face crumbles, and he starts to cry.

    Summary

    The meeting was interrupted by Victor's communicator, yet the man didn't seem annoyed like the others were. No, he looked worried.

    "I need to take this," he says, the concern evident in his tone and that's when everyone realises there's something wrong. The only person who wasn't in the room with them was Captain Marvel.

    The only sound in the room was the stifled sob of a young boy who was most certainly not the Champion, yet it pulled at the League's heartstrings, wondering what would make this boy so scared.

    "Victor, I need - I need help, please, please, please," were the first words the boy spoke, pure, unadulterated terror evident in his tone. "He's here, he's drunk, so's she, please, please -"

    Victor gave him hushed assurances, but was already standing up and left the room quickly.

    The League did not have an idea of what was going on.

    ~~~

    An AU where the marks Billy Batson gains appears on his Champion form, yet much less pronounced. Along with Billy staying in the foster homes, if only because he knows he won't be much help to the team starving and weak.

    Summary

    He was there, the reflection of himself, and then he wasn’t. And Billy was completely, utterly alone. The road stretched out behind him and before him, fading into the fog of the night. His knees hurt from kneeling on the asphalt. Blood trickled into his eye.

    “I don’t understand,” Billy screamed again.

    No answer came. He knew one wouldn’t but he tried again, fear clawed his throat hoarse. He didn’t even feel the tears in his eyes, how they stun

    Summary

    Pent up aggression and a lack of release lead to increased tension between the top two jocks of Hawkin’s High. Steve hit Billy, or did Billy hit first? Either way, it happened in the wrong place and at the worst time. The fight landed the boys in a paired assignment as punishment. They were meant to work out their issues with one another by graduation or else they’d be stuck together all summer long in even more strict circumstances.

    Summary

    But that all changed, too fast and too suddenly, like the moment in between awake and sleep, where you don’t really remember how one thing lead to another. Can’t recall the moment, can’t recognise the difference between awake and sleep, but then suddenly it’s the next morning, and everything from the night before, from the time between then and now, is all just a memory, a blur in your mind in which you can never truly remember. That’s what it felt like to lose Billy.

    or

    A year after Billy assumingly dies, Steve, whilst struggling to cope with his loss, starts to realise that Billy might not be completely gone.

    Summary

    “Want a drink before we start?” He held the bottle in Billy’s line of sight. The teen cracked his eyes open.

    “Don’t think I can keep it down.” His voice was barely above a whisper. But it was better than nothing. He needed to stay awake.

    “If you’re sure,” Hopper took another swig. “This is gonna hurt like a bitch.”

    “Always does.”

    “No, no, Max, please, don’t go. Don’t...”

    Summary

    But Billy wasn’t swayed. He eyed it cautiously, “Will it be worth it? Will losing Steve forever be worth it?”

    The man faltered, hand twitching, “Only you can decide that, Billy. But I will tell you one thing, it makes the pain go away.”

    His head snapped up, the pain? The constant ache in his heart, the cold that surrounds his home, the lifelessness of the world? It would fix all of that? This little vial?

    He reached for it, rolling it around his fingers, ghosting a finger over the cork.

    “Ultimately, should you decide not to use it, throw it away,” he muttered, voice low, distant.

    “Thank you.”

    “Don’t thank me, soon enough, you’ll hate me.”

     

    Or: After the loss of his boyfriend, Billy gets a second chance by a mysterious man in a mysterious motel, but is it worth it?

Camille is a girl just trying to do better when Billy barges into her life and new pieces come together. Maybe not all the ones they wanted. He gets tangled into her lavish existence. Rich girl.

    Summary

    “Take your shirt off.”

    Billy tries for a smirk, but it falls a little when the pain radiates from the cut on the corner of his mouth. “Tryna’ seduce me, pretty boy?”

    “Jesus, Billy,” Steve sighs. Steve just slumps on the floor, his legs go either side of Billy’s and hide under the bed. He looks up to the ceiling and huffs. “This is serious, Billy. You could have died.”
