    Summary

    Steve takes a deep breath and picks up the receiver, “Hello?”

    The kitchen lights flicker once, so quickly that he convinces himself that he imagined it, and then there’s a crackling, a kind of static-y hiss against his ear, and the rasp of a voice, “Hey, I need, uh, police?”

    There’s something familiar about the voice, something twitching at the back of his mind, the tip of his tongue, but Steve can’t quite place it.

    “Hello? Anyone there? Please?” it comes again, laced with so much desperation that it has the back of Steve’s neck prickling uncomfortably, “I need- shit, I need help.”

    AKA Billy is trapped in the Upside Down and somehow manages to call Steve's house.

    Summary

    Billy wanders into the forest and meets a fairy. He's sure Steve and the fairy are one in the same and all he wants to do is keep them.

    -

    “Just the tip.” Steve glowers at him when Billy snorts, the air making Steve’s bangs flutter. “Your fingertip asshole, just your fingertip.” He hisses before he starts muttering too low for Billy to hear but he thinks he hears something like childish in there as Steve crosses his arms over his chest, wings twitching with his agitation. Billy ignores the possible comments, they do not matter, no, the only thing Billy cares about is that Steve said he can touch his wings and he is brimming with excitement, shaking as he brings his hand up.

    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

    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

    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

    "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

    Forced into mandatory therapy after a bout of self destructive wallowing following the destruction of Starcourt, Steve shows up expecting some lame doctor touting self care. What he doesn’t expect is for the weekly meetings to be in a group setting, or that they might actually be helping.

    That is, until he leaves another routine weekly session, only to bump into the next patient. Who he finds is Billy Hargrove—very not dead—standing across from him.

    Billy doesn’t seem to recognize him, he doesn’t talk, and to make things worse, the doctors won’t let Steve leave.

    When Billy Hargrove pops up in Hawkins, Steve finds himself stuck along his orbit. With the help of Tommy, some bystander to best friend assistance of his new possible co-worker Robin, and the indirect help of Carol, the Pretty Boy Act is put in action. But, when Steve starts getting closer to Billy, he finds a few details out about Hargrove’s life that make him question just how far he’d go for an outsider. It starts crumbling when Billy starts to care. When Steve takes a step back, Billy starts stepping forward. And who knows if either of them are going in the right direction. It might just end in miraculous disaster. Or maybe something…special.
