    Summary

    That night, 1984

    Steve sits at the kitchen table, a pack of frozen carrots wrapped in a tea towel against his swollen purple face. "I'm fine," he says. It’s over. They fought the monsters, and they won. Now he can rest.

    Except in real life, the credits don't roll, and they don't get to skip ahead to Christmas.

    Summary

    Hawkins very quickly becomes one of the worst things to happen to Billy in his life. At least back home in California he had a couple real friends, he had a means of coping, he had places to go, people he could stay with when he needed it. Here, in Indiana, Billy has absolutely nothing.

    Every day that he has to deal with his father’s fists and insults, the harder it gets to keep up a façade around Max, around Susan, at school, around everyone. He hurts all the time, whether that be physically or emotionally, and Billy sometimes wonders how much more it’s going to take to finally break him for good. How much more of this does he have to endure until he can’t take it all anymore? Sometimes he thinks it’ll be sooner rather than later, especially on nights like these when he’s kept up in the darkness of his bedroom all night, unable to sleep because of the pain, unable to distract himself, left to stew in the pain and the anger and his father’s words.

    Summary

    Blood. There was so much blood. Between the cold chilled weather, the sickening copper odor the filled his nostrils and the broken bones that barely held his body together, had he been the wiser, Steve would have instantly connected the Upside Down to his growing list of injuries.

    Expect this time, he and the rest of the party learn his battered state was caused by monsters that have never played refuge to the Upside Down.

    And to add to it? Billy unexpectedly finds himself in the middle of it all.

    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

    It sounded too good to be true, because it was.

    Billy knew better than to trust good things. They were almost always a lie.

    And Steve Harrington, with his expensive watch and tired eyes and fucking beautiful mouth, well.

    That was the worst lie of all.

    Because now Billy wanted, again.

    Summary

    One by one, they all figure it out. Billy isn't totally sure how, but they do. Max is the first. They all follow soon after that. Even Harrington. And for some reason, they kind of try to help. Nobody says anything about it, straight up. But they know.

    And now Billy has to deal with these little shits knowing about his shit at home, and this dumbass crush on Harrington, too. Because, you know, nothing can be easy.

    --

    “They know?”

    “Figured it out months ago. Where the hell were you?”

    “How could they not tell anyone? It doesn’t matter who it is, nobody should have to–" he stops himself.

    Billy almost feels for him. “Guess your little angels are showing their true colors, huh. They aren’t the first ones to keep it to themselves, they won’t be the last.”

    Summary

    It’s a realisation for Max, she thinks on the short walk back to the car, holding everything she needs in either hand.

    She isn’t so sure what it is for Billy. Whether it’s an end to something inside of him he doesn’t need anymore; something he’s been waiting for; a starting point; or something more complicated and incoherent neither of them could really understand yet - all that matters at that moment is that they’re going to be okay.

    Billy only lets her hand go when he needs it to change gears. Even then, she leaves it outstretched between them, and knows they’re going to need each other, and that’s all right, ‘cause she also knows they’re all right. More than that. Something like happiness.

    Summary

    Steve carefully stepped over the ooze slathered across the floor, creeping up to the wall separating the living room from the kitchen. The golden light from the small bulb spilled out onto a small portion of the tiled floor of the dining room and kitchen, softly illuminating the surrounding area in an eerie glow. He peeked around the corner in order to peer into the kitchen and his eyebrows furrowed in confusion upon seeing the absolute mess of the place.

    His various plastic magnets were scattered across the floor, some cracked and in pieces as if they’d been stepped on. Wrappers and shredded tupperware were strewn about with half-eaten and abandoned scraps of food left haphazardly everywhere. He was so furious at the sight of the absolute disaster he almost missed the figure rummaging about his fridge. Examining the little bit of the silhouette he could see, he stared wide-eyed at the gap between the bare fridge door and the floor, where he could see a pair of slimy feet.
