    Summary

    " Eddie looked in the mirror. Pointing at himself sternly, albeit with a shaky hand, he said, 'You do not have a parasite. That is a cognitive distortion, it’s magical thinking, and it’s not true.' ”

     

    Eddie Kaspbrak is having a bad day. A really terrible day, actually. Can he turn his Friday around for the better, or is it doomed?

    Summary

    Eddie Kaspbrak never meant to throw his soda at that jaywalker, it just kind of happened. Better his drink hit him than his car, right? And at least he'll never have to see him again.

    That is, until his new client walks into their meeting--drenched from head to toe in what could only be 32 ounces worth of Diet Coke.

    “So do you always throw beverages at your clients, or do I happen to be one of the lucky ones?”

    And thus began his relationship with the one and only Richie Tozier.

    Summary

    His therapist is Eddie.

    They talk.

    They remember.

    Summary

    He thinks about (and scares himself, for a second, with the potency of it) the way it feels when Richie drapes himself over him when they’re gathered at the quarry or the clubhouse. The way his chin rests on the top of Eddie’s head and his chest presses to his back and his stupid bony arms cross in front of him to hold him in place even though they both know Eddie isn’t going anywhere. How he wouldn’t give up that kind of contact with Richie for the world.

    The security of it.

    And how hadn’t he realized before?

    The story of the Lucky Seven and their terrible luck, a Turtle who doesn't quite understand humans, accidental telepathy, and Eddie Kaspbrak's many, many life struggles -- in the style of them all growing up, a little bit at a time, and what that entails.

    Summary

    It takes a village to raise a baby. For an adult regressing to a baby, however, it takes a Losers Club.

    With Richie going on a five day business trip, the group has declared it the perfect opportunity to meet little Eddie. For one day and night each, Mike, Stan, Bill, Ben, and Bev will all get an opportunity to "babysit" a regressed Eddie. Eddie, having never taken such a massive step without Richie, is fearful. Taking place over the course of one week, these seven chapters will follow little Eddie throughout this experience.

    Perhaps this experience is just what Eddie needs to learn to trust his friends, and maybe even himself, among other lessons.

    Summary

    It started off as a joke. He thinks. So, he lost a bet their freshman year of college. So, he and Stan borrowed skirts from Bev and performed a slightly intoxicated chair routine to a Rihanna song. So, maybe in his inebriated state, he might have thought he saw Richie bite his lower lip between his teeth when his knee-high socks slipped down.

    It was all a joke. Until it wasn't.

    or, Eddie likes to feel pretty, but Richie doesn't need to know that.

    Summary

    Richie Tozier is 17 and very gay, but so deeply in the closet that he barely recognizes that fact. He works at Hobby Lobby in order to try to get money for college. His best friends are Stanley Uris and Mike Hanlon. And you know what? Richie is depressed and needs therapy badly.

    Eddie Kaspbrak is also 17, also very gay, and also so deeply in the closet that he barely knows it. He doesn't work anywhere because his mother is too overprotective and doesn't think he's ready for a job yet. However, she drags him along to Hobby Lobby quite frequently so she can buy materials for her awful DIY projects.

    It is there one July afternoon where Richie Tozier and Eddie Kaspbrak cross paths for the very first time.

    Summary

    Richie didn't remember his childhood. He rarely thought about it, honestly. But when he did, he didn't mean to. He'd see someone in red running shorts or a colored polo, he felt something he didn't understand:

    He felt a longing.

    It wasn't sexual or anything. It was... sad. Like he was missing someone terribly. But it didn't make sense, so he tried to ignore it for as long as he could. It wasn't until he was getting sued for property damage, which he didn't do, thank you very much, and Steve, his agent, hired a risk assessor for some weird reason.

    As soon as Richie sees him, the longing that he'd ignored for most of his life hit him harder than ever.

    Eddie felt more free than he could have imagined.
    *
    Being back in his home state, even if it wasn’t quite where he grew up, was an exhilarating kind of nostalgia that opened up a world of possibilities for his future.

    Dare he think it… maybe he’d meet a guy here.

    Summary

    Eddie receives a series of love letters in the form of poetry, but who are these letters from?

    An Excerpt:

    I’ll live by your side till the end
    I can’t continue to pretend

    -Secret Admirer

    As if his heart were in the middle of an open flame, Eddie felt it melt. Never had he expected to find such a thing in his school locker, not very neatly folded but with a little heart on the front with the words under, “read me”. The handwriting- so beautifully spelled out in cursive with hearts dotting the “I”s. The first people he was bound to tell were his best friends; the Losers.

    Summary

    "Is Stan and Bill here?", he asked looking around. He saw no one else in the room but the person who opened the door and still standing at the door looking confused. Eddie looked at the guy and realized this guy was quite hot. He guessed this was Stan's roommate and he felt a blush creep up his neck. The guy was tall, crazy tall, like probably over six feet tall. His black curly hair framed his face nicely. He wore black hipster glasses, as Eddie likes to call them, and had a silver hoop nose ring and his ears were gauged! He wore ripped black skinny jeans with a few chains, a black band tee, and oddly a brightly colored blue Hawaiian shirt over his band tee. It didn't go together and looked a little weird. His smile, oh his smile made Eddie feel butterflies in his stomach.

    "And you are?", he asked closing his room door and sat on his bed.

    "I'm Eddie, your roommate Stan went for coffee with my roommate Bill like an hour ago and I came to find Bill.", he explained hoping it didn't sound weird. He stood in the middle of the room feeling awkward and willing his feet to walk him back out but he stayed right there under the stare of this beautiful guy.
