    Summary

    Will Byers has never lived an easy life, not by any stretch of the imagination. He’s survived bullies, brutes, interdimensional beasts, and his father. But something deep within terrifies him: a set of forbidden feelings.

    Mike Wheeler has always been able to conquer anything, be it school, relationships, or the personification of evil itself. But one monster terrifies him more than anything - the monster in his closet.

    When a new English teacher - a very gay one - arrives in Hawkins, both boys are forced to confront the reality of who they are. It’s a steep path to walk, a path filled with joy, sorrow, and grief, but they have each other. Perhaps that’s all they need.

    The year is 1985, and the AIDS epidemic is ravaging America. And of course, who could forget the spectres that inhabit the dark? The shadow of something terrifying lurks beneath the surface… and it wants revenge.

    Summary

    “Yeah, it’s me. Go back to sleep.” He whispers softly as he changes quickly, crawling into bed with his son soon after. He feels his warmth and the soft even breaths, and it’s enough to remind him that there’s a reason for everything. That there’s a reason he survived, and it’s Christopher. His son, right here and now. Maybe Buck, too, and his crazy mission from the future. And maybe if he dies in ’67 it will have been long enough to finish this, to finish it all.
    Raising his son.

    Summary

    Billy and Steve and Robin move to San Francisco and it's great. They can finally, fully, publically be themselves. They're out of Hawkins and away from all the prying eyes and small minds and sharp-toothed monsters.

    Only, it turns out, not all monsters have teeth. Not all monsters are towering ten foot terrors.

    Some monsters are small. Too small to see.

    Summary

    He expects his usual warm welcome from Sue, always drying off a glass or cleaning the taps with a dirty rag. Instead, to his shock, a man is behind the bar, pouring a Whiskey Sour for a regular Harry always sees at this time of night. He’s no doubt his age; he can tell by the smoothness of his skin, the muscles in his biceps, the way his hair is swept back in a style not unlike a young James Dean, exemplifying the cut of his cheekbones and the sharpness at his jaw.

    As he approaches the bar, quietly since he’s not wearing his shoes, he blurts it out— “Where’s Sue? Is she alright? She’s not dead, is she?”

    The barkeep, wide-eyed at first but quickly growing amused, smiles at him, eyeing his dress, tousled wet hair and smudged makeup with a curl in his lip. “Darling,” he says, completely ignoring his question, “a leather jacket with a dress like that? Are you mad?”

    Summary

    If Eddie Kaspbrak shows up after 3 years of silent treatment with a Patrick Swayze haircut and a joint to share, you’ve kind of just got to ask for a hit and go with it. Even if your mom’s just kicked the bucket (gastroesophageal cancer). Even if there’s something awful in the woods (possible phantom serial killer).
    Life’s short, and all that shit.

    Summary

    “Right, of course— but you wouldn’t leave a man with croissants in his hands waiting, would you?” There is no flicker of recognition in Geralt’s eyes. Jaskier had learned long ago to dampen that disappointment of shared memories lost. It’s enough for the both of them that he remembers the back-alley fucking in leather jackets and leather pants, the huddling together under the sound of bombed lands and crying men.

     

     

    They die and are reborn; Jaskier remembers their pasts, and Geralt never does. This time, though, Jaskier thinks they'll get it right.
