    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:

    High School Max (aka really angsty): Ch 11 - 18
    College Max: Ch 19 - 21

    Summary

    After nearly being devoured by otherwordly monsters and getting the shit beaten out of him by Billy Hargrove, Steve returns to Hawkins High to discover someone keeps leaving flowers in his locker. As the flowers pile up, so does the sense that Steve may be missing something important: there is someone out there who may be in love with him and he may be falling in love with them too.

    Summary

    Steve's new sunglasses are haunted and no one (especially Robin) is going to convince him they're not, so now he's left sunglass-less right as the November glare (which is a thing, thank you Robin) gets its very worst.
    If only there were any recently resurrected hot guys wandering around Hawkins, ready to generously donate their own pair of sunglass to him in this time of need!

    Summary

    The chair outside the principal's office is already taken when Billy gets there. He lets his eyes follow the trail from the clean, white sneakers up the impossibly long stretch of denim clad leg and even further upwards over the two toned striped polo shirt to the moles peeking out from just under the collar.

    Steve Harrington glances up at him, then grimaces.

    Summary

    “I’m not your perfect little princess, Neil,” she spits out- because.

    Billy won’t go to the police. Billy won’t defend himself. He may try to defend her - which is why she’s made sure to do this now, while he isn’t in the house - but he wouldn’t dare defend himself.

    Max is tired of it.

    “And you’re not my father.”

    Neil stalks towards her, unshakeable rage in his features and tightly wound like a snake ready to strike, and Max just hopes she knows what she’s doing.

    Summary

    Set after season 3; The job at the video store isn't working out all that great for Steve, so when he finds an ad offering a live in position on a farm, he jumps at the chance. What he doesn't expect is for the guy interviewing him to have Billy Hargrove's face. The problem is, Billy - if this even is Billy - seems to have completely forgotten who he is, and now Steve has to decide whether it's the morally right thing to push him to remember, or let him live his life out peacefully on the farm.

    Featuring: amnesia which actually isn't, Neil being a violent asshole, Max running away from home, Steve having a teeny tiny mini sexuality crisis, Robin steps in to offer dating advice, and, ultimately, Billy doing the right thing.

    A Harringrove Big Bang 2021 story, written by Dogsled and illustrated by the lovely and amazing 1jet2unknown who has been so incredibly patient with me! (check out the art in chapter 4!)

    Summary

    After an altercation leaves Steve teetering on the edge of a drop, he starts to question his Omega status. Though, a rumour has it that a creature is lurking in the woods of the Loc Nora neighbourhood snags Steve’s attention.

    Meanwhile over on Cherry lane, the Hargrove Mayfield family are under the investigation of Hawkins PD for the disappearance of Billy Hargrove. Max and The Party quickly take matters into their own hands, which of course is just another thing he would have to jam into what Robin so sheepishly during a conversation had called his “Pandora’s box of things Steve can’t handle”.

    Summary

    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.
