    Summary

    Defeated and dead tired, John ambled into their apartment room, a blank expression on his face. It was almost as if he was on auto-pilot, with it enough to make sure he didn’t bump into anything, but not enough to fully absorb what had happened just hours ago. He suspected it would hit him later, harder than Lucy had kicked him in the chest.

    John flopped down on the sofa and stared into space in the dark. He didn’t even notice Dennis had walked in and turned on the light.

    Slowly, he approached him. “John? I saw what happened on the news. Are you okay?”

    He didn’t even have to think about it. Of course he wasn’t okay. Except, when he tried to tell him that, only sobbing came out. He wasn’t entirely sure why; it just… happened.

    Dennis wasted no time in going to John’s side, sitting beside him. He wrapped his arms around him, rubbing his back up and down.

    Over and over, Dennis whispered, “It’ll be okay.”

    In time, John’s anxieties and the emotions it brought out had subsided. He pulled away, wiping his eyes. “You know,” John sniffled softly and continued, “I think you and I need to take that trip now.”

An isolationist and a scorpion amongst frogs that prefers to keep to the woods, Sasori is thrust into taking on this new apprentice in tandem with “The Suna Three”, his niece and nephews hiding out from their relatives for the season. Within the forests of the Emerald Triangle in Northern California, we explore a tale of mental illness, family, and the cutthroat world of marijuana’s black market.

    Summary

    He says instead, “I’m a reporter.” Freshly minted by Bauman, who sold his house in Chicago and moved back into town to resurrect the fresh corpse of the Hawkins Post. “So is Robin. She’s my photographer.”

    Eddie doesn’t even bother to hide his incredulity. “How’d you swing that?”

    Steve just shrugs. “The town’s cracked in four, the last editor turned into a flesh-eating monster, and, uh, the people who stayed have better things to do than write for the local fish-wrap. What can I say? The standards were in the dirt when I applied.”

    Or: In the wake of a slow apocalypse, Steve drives his family to California and falls in love.

    Summary

    “No, no— you take the 70, then the 55, then the 44 and onto the 40.”

    “You sure about that, Munson?”

    “I know how to read a map, Harrington. Now, keep those pretty little eyes on the road before you kill us.”

    Steve snorts, but listens all the same.

    –-––––

    Steve and Eddie take an impromptu road-trip to California. It only takes the some 2000 miles, the longing gazes, the brushes of skin on skin and open skies and saltwater taffy and exploded tires for Steve to realize he may have a bigger crush on Eddie than he'd thought.

    Summary

    “Class! Can I have your attention please?” Mrs. Click called out, snapping her fingers and slowly opening the door.
    Steve furrowed his eyebrows in confusion, wondering what was so important.
    A boy walked in.
    Around Steve’s height, admittedly a little shorter. His eyes blue like the sky in California, his hair long and curly and light brown.
    He was a teenage dream, Steve thought.

    Summary

    After we were completely soaked and exhausted we called a truce and lid down, or at least we tried to. Tommy managed to lie down and not die, but with me not paying attention, I laid down next to him and my back landed on a… rock? I sat back up and went to move it but this object wasn’t a rock. I picked it up. It looked like a weird tea poury thingy?

    “What the heck is this bossman?” I asked Tommy and held it in front of him.

    He stood up and I watched as his eyes went wide.

    “Tubs, that’s a lamp.”

    “Tommy, this isn’t a lamp, a lamp has cords and a shade and like, a lightbulb.”

    “Nope, it’s a different type of lamp. Tubbo, what you have is a genie lamp.”
    ———————
    Basically a kind of fluff story revolving around Tubbo and Tommy freeing Phil, Ranboo, and Techno from being genies

    Summary

    All the memories from 1986 were flooding back to him all at the same time. The murders, Vecna, the demobats attacking him, Eddie’s death, the earthquake, everything. That metal head up on that stage, the man that died five years ago, the man that Steve had loved back in 86 and 87’.

    Back in 86’ Steve had a whole theory on how Eddie was alive and in the upside down but even then he knew he was crazy for that but now he might not be as crazy as he thought he was, he was supposed to be dead. He couldn't have lived, he choked on his own blood. Eddie Munson was dead but apparently not any more. Now he was performing at some metal concert in New York as the main performance of the night, not in the middle of the upside down rotting.
