    Summary

    Billy Hargrove loved three things: rock & roll, his Camaro, and his twin Maxine...and obviously not in that order. Growing up with an asshole dad and emotionally absent mom, he hadn't learned the best habits. But at least he had someone to lean on. Max was kind where he was brash, patient where he was angry. She even looked after their pain in the ass little brother Dustin. When it was the two of them against the world, could anyone really blame him for falling for her? So what if the feelings weren't mutual? What did consent really matter, in the face of true love?

    When the Hargroves are forced to move to a little town called Hawkins, life throws a wrench into his plans. A certain fluffy haired boy takes an interest in what's his. That douchebag Steve Harrington will have to watch his back.

    Title comes from the Pulp Fiction quote "No, it seemed excessive, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen."

    Summary

    Billy was once again, lost in Steve Harrington.

    He’d stay lost every day of his life if he could, admiring him from distance, without ever touching him, trying to not acknowledge the fuzzy feeling he had on the pit of his stomach when he looked at him. Doe eyes, great hair, stupid moles, those are real things about Steve Harrington, those are facts. And Billy Hargrove is known for ignoring facts.

    The fact that Harrington is powerful, greater than he is.

    The fact that Harrington is alive.

    And the fact that Billy Hargrove is hopelessly in love with him.

    Summary

    When she met his eye again she looked serious, decisive, eyes bright and jaw set in determination. It was the same look Hargrove used to get in gym, when he finally stopped showboating and shoving at Steve and actually got into the game. That was when Steve had liked him best. They might not have been related, but it was obvious she’d absorbed little pieces of her step brother, tiny flashes of him that she probably wasn’t even aware of showing through. “I think you should read this.”

    (Or: Three months after Billy’s gone, Max finds a journal.)

    Summary

    That night, 1984

    Steve sits at the kitchen table, a pack of frozen carrots wrapped in a tea towel against his swollen purple face. "I'm fine," he says. It’s over. They fought the monsters, and they won. Now he can rest.

    Except in real life, the credits don't roll, and they don't get to skip ahead to Christmas.

    Summary

    Although everyone believes Eleven closed the gate for good, the impact of the gate being closed has caused for small dimensional tears to leave open. The Mind flayer is too weak to fully control a host, but it is able to choose a temporary subject to fully realize its plans. Billy comes to realize the truth about himself and his mother's disappearance, while forming bonds and relationships that change him for the better.

    Summary

    Harrington's face does exactly what it does every time they cross paths in the hallways, in the locker rooms, on the basketball court, in the showers... Billy has come to find it quite entertaining: Harrington's eyes widen for a split-second with residual fear, before his eyebrows furrow determinedly (and hilariously), he squares his shoulders and meets Billy's eyes head-on, like a challenge.
    It's endlessly laughable.

    Lucky for him, Billy doesn't feel like picking another fight just now. If Max comes out and finds precious Steve Harrington at his feet, beaten to a pulp (again), she'll lose her shit.

    ---

    In which Max is tired of Billy, Billy is tired of being ignored, and Steve might be a damn good babysitter, but he sure as hell didn't ask to be Billy Hargrove's family therapist.

    Summary

    The boys are idiots. I mean absolute idiots. Robin is the cool goth girl you wished you were friends with. Expect lots of 80s music references.

     

    Steve looked up as the door to Scoops jingled, trying hard to plaster his customer service smile back on his face even though it was a quarter to close. That battle was lost the second he saw just who their customer was: Billy fucking Hargrove.

    Summary

    Billy loathed that speech more than he loathed himself, even more than he loathed Harrington, stupidly perfect Harrington who made Billy heart skip and leap who made Billy blush at an insult, who made Billy nervous and not just out of fear, he made Billy scared way too scared
    Or alternatively Billy has a crush and reacts like a first grader

    Summary

    Steve and Billy are very fucked up in the aftermath of Season 3, even though Billy didn’t die and they end up falling into bed (well, the back of Billy’s Camaro) together. Now they have to learn to navigate life and shared fucking trauma.

    or: billy moves in with steve after not-dying in season 3 and cohabitation is an absolute shit fest

    Summary

    So this is my version of Season Two and Three, if Harringrove were cannon. Will also explore heavily Max and Billy's relationship and their past.

    Part one of a three part series.

    Spoilers for both seasons. I can't promise a happy ending, but I hope you enjoy the ride!
