    Summary

    Billy doesn’t give a fuck about the rodeo.
    He doesn’t care about country music, or fancy horse riding, or the beauty queens, even the bull riders.
    What he does give a fuck about it not being in his house today.
    Not when his dad was obviously itching to pick a fight. Not when Max gave him such an easy out over breakfast.
    “I saw a flyer for a rodeo. I think it’d be kinda neat.”

    -

    Steve is a lonely member of the Harrington American Rodeo.
    Billy is bored and wants to spend as much of the summer outside of his house as he can.
    They spend a summer growing closer, playing with horses and listening to a lot of country music.

    Summary

    You want stranger things thrills I’ve got stranger things thrills
    For the spooky season I have 4 spooky tales about the teens who lived in Hawkins, Indiana on Halloween in the 80’s.

    Story one is a 80’s teen slasher with the stranger things cast (only the older teens) and 2 OCs.
    Story two has a Kegboys focus.
    Story three is a Harringrove and Heather/ Robin double date gone wrong
    Story four is Harringrove focused & max makes an appearance

    I like to think all of these stories are connected in some way but you can interpret them differently if you like.
    HAPPY HALLOWEEN ;)
    I'll be posting a new update @ 12 eastern time until all four fics are available

    Summary

    After Graduation of '85, Steve Harrington goes missing. This time it's not the Upside Down. Hawkins thinks it's a lost cause, like Barb. The Harringtons really don't care about the matter. But Steve's friends do.

    When they find him again, he's not the same as he once was. Yet that's only a drop in the pond compared to what he's been through...

    Summary

    Billy doesn't die in Starcourt. Instead he wakes up a month later in hospital with his little sister holding his hand and a future he thought he'd lost in front of him.
    Basically the post season 3 fix it we all need

    Harringrove... eventually ;)

    I am terrible at summaries but I'm super proud of this fic so I hope you like it!

    Rated teen and up because it's mostly fine for everyone but there are a few chapters including smut as well as occasional violence between Neil and Billy.

    Please don't repost my fics elsewhere! I know I've given permission before to do so but unless I've given you specifically permission please don't! I am really glad you like my work but please don't repost it!

    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

    Mentions of past child abuse. Occasional: manhandling, mild slurs. ***WARNING: CH 25 "Goober" Contains Graphic Scenes of Abuse***

    Ch 1 - 2 years after S2. Susan & Neil gone, Max & Billy on their own with the help of Hopper. Very long - was originally stand alone.

    Ch 2 - 8 1 year after Ch 1. Max & Billy working things out. Steve introduces Billy to monster hunting. Max pushes him to embrace his sexuality, but it's slow & relatively tame (because 80s & writing graphic sex isn't my thing). Hawkins gang present & active.

    Ch 9 - epilogue. Max's high school graduation. Billy sucks at emotions. Steve is a champ. Fluffy ending.

    ***This is the end of the completed story. The following Chapters are add ons & requests:

    High School Max (aka really angsty): Ch 11 - 18
    College Max: Ch 19 - 21
    Adults with adorable (if I do say so, myself), precocious OC: Ch 22 - 28
    Missing scenes & Requests: Ch 26

    Summary

    we convince ourselves there's future in the fucking, but there is no fucking future

    .

    After a disaster of a year, Max decides that there's comfort in rock bottom. Still, with her view from the hill of the New Year's fireworks, she swore she could live forever. It's too bad that moments never last as long as you need them to.

    Summary

    “I said get outta here!” Billy shouts so loud it rips his throat. Max is one goddamn gutsy firecracker and he’d be impressed by the act of rebellion if it wasn’t bound to get them both killed. 

    Max’s blazing eyes flicker over the blood at the corner of Billy’s mouth and she holds her ground. “No! I’m sick of living like we’re in a prison! I'm sick of living like we have to ask him permission just to fucking breathe!” 

    “Maxine, you put that down right now or you’re going to be in a world of trouble,” Neil warns, dark and seething. 

    She responds by pointing it at his head. Neil growls, lurching right toward her. Billy suddenly finds the ability to move. Quick as a viper, he darts in between them, pushing back against his father. For a moment he isn’t entirely sure exactly who he is protecting and then he realizes it’s both of them. 

    Billy is protecting Max in case she misses. He’s protecting Neil in case she doesn’t.

    Summary

    In which Billy sees what’s in the fridge, Steve is trying not to go crazy in his haunted mansion, and maybe they find happiness at the end of the tunnel. Angst, shitty metaphors, and monsters...we got it all in Hawkins, Indiana!

    Summary

    Of course Billy has heard of them. He’s even seen them, living in California, as he used to, under the sunshine with plenty of seafood markets abound. But he pieced together from observation that “cat people” were...well. Like cats. They stuck with their crowd or kept to themselves. And disappeared in a blink if they didn’t want you to find them. Billy had never really seen on up close before, let alone properly interacted with one.

    That is, until he came smack into contact with Steve Harrington.

    Summary

    “I’m not your perfect little princess, Neil,” she spits out- because.

    Billy won’t go to the police. Billy won’t defend himself. He may try to defend her - which is why she’s made sure to do this now, while he isn’t in the house - but he wouldn’t dare defend himself.

    Max is tired of it.

    “And you’re not my father.”

    Neil stalks towards her, unshakeable rage in his features and tightly wound like a snake ready to strike, and Max just hopes she knows what she’s doing.

    Summary

    Когда она вновь встретилась с ним взглядом, то выглядела серьезной, решительной: глаза блестели, а челюсть была плотно сжата. Это был тот же самый взгляд, что и у Харгроува в спортзале, когда он, наконец, переставал выпендриваться перед Стивом и по-настоящему входил в игру. Именно тогда он нравился Стиву больше всего. Возможно, они и не были родственниками, но было очевидно, что она впитала в себя частички своего сводного брата: крошечные проблески, о которых она, скорее всего, не догадывалась.

    (Или: Спустя три месяца после смерти Билли, Макс находит дневник.)

    Summary

    "Power. Power is the only thing that matters in this world.” His father’s voice whispers in his ear. “And Submissive’s have none of that power, you understand me? Now take the pill—it’s for your own good, Billy, this is just how the world works."

    From the moment Billy Hargroves steps out of his blue Camaro with “Number of the Beast” blaring from his speakers, the entirety of the Submissive inclined population of Hawkin's High has their eye on him. He’s nothing like those sweet guys in the songs, nothing like the knight in shining armor that saves the girl in every love story. What he is though, is Dominant, strong, and hot as hell. Or at least that’s what they think.

    And as far as Billy's concerned, that's what they'll keep thinking.

    Summary

    Max had ‘forbid’ Billy from going anywhere near Harrington or her friends (something that Billy did because he wanted to, not because a fourteen year old told him to, thank you very much). She had this idea in her head that she could boss him around now, that he would do what she said because he was scared. And she was right. Well, almost. 

    Billy wasn’t scared of a fucking kid. He was scared of the same monster that’d been under the bed for the greater part of seventeen years, Neil.

    Summary

    He watched Mrs. Byers meet the young girl's eyes over her son's shoulders and he was suddenly hit with a crystal clear image in his mind.

    Hopper. Standing with his back to the gate. Smiling softly, resigned. But filled with so much love.

    Joyce. Watching, stretched impossibly thin. Understanding with a sense of grief, too terrible to name.

    She turns the keys.

    "Steve?" Jonathan is half out of the ambulance, using all of his weakened strength to keep Steve upright. "What's wrong?"

    "Hopper. It's Hopper. He's gone." Steve doesn't know how he knows it, but he does.

    -------------------

    After the Battle of Starcourt, Steve struggles with the damages that the Russians left behind. In dealing with the aftermath, with the help of Robin and the Party, he uncovers a larger conspiracy at hand than just re-opening the Gate.
