    Summary

    In the aftermath of the battle at Starcourt Billy is left in a coma and Heather is found relatively unharmed. Max spends the rest of her summer by her stepbrother’s side, believing that he will wake up one day. Strangely, Will becomes her one steadfast companion. But Billy waking up is just the beginning of this story…

    This story will bounce around to focus on different pairings which I will note beside the chapter titles. The main ones being Max/Will, Billy/Steve and Heather/Robin. With moments of El/Mike and Joyce/Hopper. It’s also heavy on Billy and Heather’s friendship and how being flayed has changed their relationship.

    Summary

    Steve Harrington is a secret failed experiment from Hawkins Lab, adopted by the rich Harringtons once the Lab writes him off as a failure. His new parents and the lab itself are under the impression that he has no powers, and is just a regular kid.
    Which of course means that he is anything but. While Steve can't throw cars with his mind, and can't communicate with monsters in an interdimensional void, he is not without powers. Steve can dream.
    More specifically Steve can dream of a beach he's never been to, and a boy he's never met. And while that's not quite as exciting as some of the other things the children from the lab can do, it might just come in handy when the dream boy suddenly appears in real life.

    Summary

    What if Billy had driven to the junk yard instead? What if he'd been given the opportunity to actually protect Max? What if no one had to die because Suzie got over herself and didn't make Dustin sing? What if someone had cared enough about Billy to notice something wrong sooner? What if Bob hadn't become briefly mesmerized by Joyce and had made it out of the lab in time? bi-weekly updates

    Summary

    If no one knew this small town had secrets, if his parents cared- hell, if /someone/ actually gave a shit, maybe he wouldn’t be here.
    Being used like the punching bag he’d become.

    Summary

    "Hargrove is here." Robin's voice sounds like she's under water.

    "I know. I was there, too. We saw him come in, like, an hour ago." It was the first time he'd seen Billy conscious and on his feet since Starcourt. And tonight he had walked through the front door into a high school party where Steve and Robin were sitting at the top of the stairs waiting for their trip to kick in, and the whole world had started to tilt on its axis.

    He was here, in a leather jacket and those stupid tight jeans and that halo of curls, and all Steve could think about was the memory of hauling that mangled body up the broken escalator, through the ruins of the mall, warm blood soaking through his Scoops uniform at an alarming rate, Billy getting heavier and heavier with every step until he was an actual dead weight hanging off Steve's neck. He'd been right back in that parking lot, Max screaming Billy's name over the sound of an ambulance, and Steve putting his hand to Billy's blood-slick chest and finding only cold and the distinct lack of a heartbeat.

    Summary

    Turned out being impaled repeatedly by a flesh monster wasn’t enough to take Billy Hargrove out of the game fully. It did, in some part make the game a little harder, but he was still playing despite it all.

    Bouncing the basketball slowly against the back patio, Billy let his gaze travel to the woods surrounding the cluttered little home. He’d been surprised as all Hell when Joyce Byers had been the one to take him from the hospital once all the scientists and doctors had finished prodding him, and discharged him. His father and Susan had visited only once that whole three months he’d been stuck in the hospital bed. He’d almost feared there would have been no one there when they’d finally released him. He didn’t want to think about how stupid he must have looked, fighting back tears when Joyce and her little family had claimed him as their own. He didn’t deserve it. Didn’t deserve them.

    A cramp ran up the length of his arm, causing him to falter in his dribble. The ball bounced away, rolling towards the back door.

    Summary

    Billy froze for a moment, still reeling from hitting his head that hard, but still lucid enough to know something was very wrong. After a second of blinking away the pain, he pressed up curiously again with both hands, and again he found himself touching something hard and grainy. Wood maybe? But that couldn’t be right. He moved slightly and found that his whole body was knocking into equally hard corners from head to toe. A wooden box. Huh. It was almost like - like-

    God he was in a coffin.

    Buried alive.

    Fuck.

    Summary

    Will’s been having nightmares again…so what else is new? El tries to help him find new ways of finding good dreams…and it works. Or does it? Because now Will is dreaming of Billy Hargrove on an isolated beach…and he looks all kinds of sad.
    Takes place post series as a sort of fix-it story.

    Updated ratings are for upcoming chapters. There will be some less savoury and possible triggering elements. I will try to put warnings at the top of each chapter.

     

    ******
    Excerpt Ch11–

    “Please, Billy. Take the soap.”

    Billy reached a shaky hand, but he didn’t take the proffered bar of soap. He used it to cup under Will’s jaw and tenderly rubbed his thumb along the younger boy’s cheekbone.

    “Hey,” Billy whispered, like he was telling him a secret.

    “Hi,” Will reciprocated with a sheepish grin, happy that Billy was finally speaking to him.

    “Can you do it? I’m just so tired,” Billy murmured with an honest vulnerability that made Will want to cry.

    “Yeah, sure,” he said, taking one more moment to relish Billy’s affectionate touch. He’d strangely been expecting Billy to call him ‘baby’ and was mildly disappointed when he didn’t.

    Summary

    Billy’s not sure what it says about his life that a little girl with superpowers isn’t the weirdest thing to happen to him in the last few months, but it’s probably nothing good.

    Summary

    Her voice is the one constant, the only thing he can hold onto. It’s the most familiar sound in this sea of nothingness; he can never actually see her, though.

    There are other voices too, many he doesn’t recognize, only one other voice that he does but doesn’t come around as often as hers.

    It’s the most comforting sound to reach his ears every time he hears it. When it stops, everything is hollow again, cold, dark, scary.

    Summary

    After Billy comes back from being trapped in the Upside Down for two months, he's told that Neil is missing. Which, honestly, is both a relief and a jitter-inducing nightmare because he has no idea when (or if) Neil will come back. But then Billy starts wondering where the money went, and why Steve was so angry he didn't get a funeral. So he investigates.

    Billy ends up getting a lot more than he bargained for.

    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.
