    Summary

    Despite a less-than-stellar childhood and not having the best role models to draw from, ever since he can remember, Steve has dreamed of having children and giving them all the things he never had. After an accident reveals a life-changing neurological condition, his focus is forced to shift from building a family and creating a warm, happy home to just being able to perform simple tasks and get through the day without too much assistance.

    Every prospective parent is nervous and full of doubt, but for Steve it's now more complicated than his upbringing or inexperience. Steve is downright terrified that the challenges of his newly acquired diagnosis may not allow him to be an amazing father in all the ways that he had always envisioned himself being. That is was too big of a mountain for him to climb. Thinking it best for everyone involved, Steve surrenders his dream of having children. But sometimes life has other plans, and shows you just exactly what you're capable of and how much you can overcome to make your dreams a reality.

    Summary

    Max’ brother has been standing stock still in the middle of the aisle for over two minutes now.

    Joyce can see the top of his curly head over the rows of products, and thinks he must be somewhere between the bread and toothpaste. Just... standing there.

    She glances over at the clock, and frowns as she looks back at him. Three minutes now. She has half a mind to go over and check on him. See what the hell he’s doing.

    Summary

    Billy Hargrove moved to Hawkins Indiana with his father Neil at the age of fifteen. A year later, after several people in the school started noticing the bruises and the injuries, Neil Hargrove has been carted off to prison. Hopper's been trying to find a good home for an angry teen but none of them seem quite the perfect fit.

    That is until he remembers Joyce Byers and her serious boyfriend Bob Newby. They're absolutely Billy's last lifeline before he cuts his losses and runs off on his own to try and make his own way. After all, surely this slightly batty family doesn't want the burden of an asshole with zero communication skills and a list of issues a mile long.

    Right?

    ---

    A story spanning all three seasons and after in which Joyce and Bob foster Billy after Neil goes to prison for child abuse. A slight shift in timelines and certain plot points but most of it is the same so I've gone ahead and labeled it as a Canon Divergent AU. Summary to be updated as the story goes along!

    Summary

    Billy froze for a moment, still reeling from hitting his head that hard, but still lucid enough to know something was very wrong. After a second of blinking away the pain, he pressed up curiously again with both hands, and again he found himself touching something hard and grainy. Wood maybe? But that couldn’t be right. He moved slightly and found that his whole body was knocking into equally hard corners from head to toe. A wooden box. Huh. It was almost like - like-

    God he was in a coffin.

    Buried alive.

    Fuck.
