    Summary

    Some years have passed and even though Will Byers goes to the same school as his (former) best friends, their friendship is not like it used to be: they've grown up and made new friends, so the party is not far from separating. Dustin, Lucas and Will are still the school nerds while Mike is now one of the popular kids.

    At the same time, as if trying to deal with his broken friendship and longtime crush weren't enough, he keeps getting some glimpses of the Upside Down while being in the real world. The worst part is that he prefers not to tell anyone, as he can't trust his friends like he used to, so he tries to put the pieces together by himself.

    (In this story the Byers stay in Hawkins and the Hoppers live with them.)

    Summary

    He tries to give it up, after that. Really, he does. It hurts, the next night, not to dial Mike’s number and tell him about his day, but he doesn’t, and he doesn’t the next night, either, or the next. Will makes it a whole week thinking he’s getting back on track—that it’s going to hurt more, now, but that it’s for the best, and that he’s doing a good job of things, kicking the habit—until Mike calls him.

    Summary

    The morning El is supposed to come home, Will answers the phone only to hear Mike’s voice through the receiver. “I broke up with El,” he says. He’s panting, as though he’s been running or something, and Will wonders if it’s due to nerves. He tamps the thought down quickly.

    “I’m sorry,” he says, because he has no idea what else to say.

    “Can you come out here? Like, now?”

    Summary

    —he doesn’t know how to talk to Mike anymore, because the falling-out between them has shaped every aspect of Will’s life and mental health both for the past year or more; he can’t just sit here with Mike squeezing his knee and talk to him like a friend when Mike holds power over Will’s very livelihood, his very ability to function. Mike has always held all the power in their relationship, and Will is done with it, or thought he was, but here Mike is, stirring shit up again like Will didn’t just live through thirteen months of hell trying to recover from him—

    Summary

    Eleven tries to remember what Max said—that there’s more to life than stupid boys. Other people besides Eleven are allowed to care about Mike, and when they do, it doesn’t diminish what Eleven and Mike have together.

    Does it?

    Summary

    It’s been two days since Will cut all contact with Mike, and he feels like—like he can’t function. Like he can’t survive without Mike there with him to hold his hand and smile at him. Will is aware of how melodramatic he sounds; reason tells him that he made it this far with his friendship with Mike on the rocks ever since the Byerses moved to Sullivan last September, and there’s no reason to believe that he can’t do more of the same. But he goes through the motions—shows up to class, does his homework, writes his stories and draws his art—feeling like a faker, like he’s actively cracking up and he can’t do this without Mike, only he doesn’t have a choice; it was unbearable, keeping Mike around—but so is this.

    So is this.

    Summary

    El pauses, looking up at Will with a pensive expression. “He misses you,” she says finally. “He talks about you.”

    Against his better judgment, Will asks, “What does he say?”

    “Sorry,” she answers. “He says sorry.”

    Summary

    More than anything, Will wants to get out of his bed and knock on El’s bedroom door and be welcomed inside like a friend, but he knows he wouldn’t be—that it would be weird and sad and awkward, and that Mike and El would look at him like they had nothing to say to him, like they wanted nothing more than for Will to leave them to their privacy.

    You’re ruining our party, he had said. You’re destroying everything, and for what? So you can swap spit with some stupid girl?

    Summary

    "It’s bullshit, Will thinks. Senior year doesn’t look good. Not even in the movies."

    All Will Byers has to do is get through the final year of high school without anything changing. All anyone else wants to do is fix everything that happened all those years before.

    A story about change and healing and an illegal candy store.

    Summary

    It’s been two days since Will moved away from Hawkins, and he still hasn’t heard from Mike. El has heard from Mike, of course: she’s on the phone with him now, in her room, just like she was for hours last night. “Hey, Will,” she calls when he passes her on his way to the kitchen, “Mike says hi—” and Will could just strangle the both of them, if he wanted to start something, but he doesn’t.

    Summary

    Will knows that he owes her a debt. He knows that. But he looks at the way nobody talks about how Mike laughs, whenever Max says something that annoys Eleven and then always trips over her own feet, and something about Eleven seems really, really wrong to Will.

    Summary

    Will Byers, an UDS, has been living quietly for a while now. Hopper and Joyce got together and now he's got a telekinetic sister. Between having a sister who always changes the channel when it's HIS turn and having a biological father who'd most likely sell him to someone for a sandwich, he's doing pretty good. Minus the questioning of his sexuality that has finally had time to creep into his mind. It's whatever, though. It's whatever. He's happy, his family's happy and his friends. So what happens now to take that all away. (Yes in the title, I meant to write 'Dustill'. Also, chapter one has unfortunately disappeared, so when Will referres to how he wanted El to stop in in the 1st paragraph, he's talking about El playing a news broadcast on the AV club's radio about a gay couple who were beaten on the streets. )
