    Summary

    For Steve, things never went according to plan. He had never thought he’d be graduating in ‘86, the same year as Robin and Nancy, a year after be was supposed to. But he also never planned on letting anyone find out that he’s one of the kids from Hawkins’ Lab, that he’s like Eleven.
    But now he’s spending his lunchbreaks with the Hellfire Club and finds himself befriending Eddie “The Freak” Munson. And maybe he also has a tiny crush on Munson, not that he’d ever admit that to anyone.
    Hawkins being Hawkins a year can never be complete without another threat from the Upside Down, and if there was one thing Steve had definitely it planned for, it was Eddie getting dragged into the whole mess alongside the rest them.

    OR: Steve is Seven and failed his classes causing him to have to repeat his last year of Highschool. He and Eddie become friends and maybe something more but then Vecna attacks and Eddie is pulled into a part of Steve’s life he never wanted him to be a part of.

    Summary

    Eddie. Fucking. Munson.

    The man who has been stuck in Steve's little pretty mind ever since the whole Vecna situation and the two men got significantly closer as they went on and saved the world.
    Eddie "The Freak" Munson. Yep, that's the one. If someone had told younger Steve that he'd stay up late every night, struggling to sleep all because his mind was preoccupied with Eddie, he'd laugh until the very day he dies.

    But now, he was laughing at himself, slightly irritated about this new found feeling for the other man. It wasn't like Eddie had amazing long dark hair, and rings that adorned his pretty fingers and eyes that just... eyes that just hypnotized Steve everytime he'd look into them. It was a challenge trying to not just profess his love for Eddie right then and there every time they'd make eye contact.

    God knows what those angel eyes did to Steve Harrington.

    Summary

    Steve got into his car and drove away, shaking hands and shaking heart, his eyes welling up with every foot of distance between him and the girl that had been supposed to make this day better. More bearable.

    And instead he was fighting his tears back because he wouldn't cry, he wouldn't, okay? It was not even an hour into his fucking birthday and that would be a new fucking record.

    or: 5 times Steve Harrington cried on his birthday and one time he cried happy tears

    Summary

    Eddie had done a lot of running recently. He’d run when Chrissy died, when Jason and his gang was hunting him, when the cops gave his name to the town and started a witch hunt for the freak. He’d run from all of it, and more.

    He’d run from the lab. He’d run from Papa.

    He couldn’t run any longer.

    Summary

    I’ve done things that I can very surely say no one else has ever done in their lives.
    By that I mean go into the upside-down multiple times and survive, fight monsters that people would go crazy if they even saw them, plus be the unofficial babysitter for 6 little heathens?
    Let’s not even mention the Russians.
    Maybe it’s my ego or maybe it’s how I chose to cope, but right now, surrounded by people, I feel the most out of place.

    Summary

    The anger and the pain doesn’t go away, but when he’s listening to Billy’s music the emptiness in his chest is muted. It doesn’t go away, but here, surrounded by these things and the air full of music, the edges of the hole inside of him get a little bit fuzzy, and they feel like they’re reaching towards the opposite edges. Like maybe someday, distantly in the future, the hole might get smaller, maybe even go away.

    Summary

    They did it. They killed Vecna. Now just comes the rest of their lives.

    Things start to slowly go back to normal for the Hawkins gang. Injuries start to heal and bodies recover from the pain that Venca left in his wake. Of course, not all the pain was physical. Steve constantly puts others first and would rather fix everyone else’s problems than deal with his own. While rewinding tapes at work, he finds himself counting down the minutes to get back home to where Eddie is recovering. Meanwhile, Eddie is having a hard time understanding why anyone, especially Steve, would care about him considering how much of a burden he is on everyone. He soon finds himself looking forward to when Steve comes home from work, listening for the sound of his car pulling into the driveway. After a couple of weeks, the boys fall into a comfortable rhythm, becoming a placeholder in each other’s lives. They soon realize that life is a lot better when you have someone to come home to.

    Summary

    It's a few weeks after Vecna's defeat. Everyone is still a bit on edge but mostly alright and relieved, especially since they almost lost Eddie and Max but, they were able to save them in time. Everything seemed to fall back to normal, well, their normal, since fighting alternate-dimension monsters definitely did not count as normal, but for Eddie, nothing was going to go back to normal ever again. He no longer knew what that word even meant now. Does he act like nothing happened and move on? Does he keep thinking about it? He didn't know, and it wasn't like he could go to the others for help since each one of them had their own type of 'normal', though they all did try to sweep everything under the rug. Eddie felt confused, drained, also very numb, but he was trying. He wasn't even sure who he was trying for now, it could be Wayne or Dustin, maybe even Robin, his fellow queer friend, but he knew that it was definitely not him he was trying for. Also, he was getting some very mixed feelings towards Steve that he did not want to acknowledge, but the other boy was not making it easy to deny when he was there all the time. Eddie was conflicted and he was tired.

    Title inspired by Sleep Apnea by Beach Fossils.

    Summary

    “Do you,” says Dustin, conversationally, “ever feel lonely?”

    Steve’s fork hesitates, mid-twirl above his spaghetti. His face falls into the expression Dustin’s come to know as thinking hard, which is rare for Steve. His eyebrows twist together, and underneath his eyes do a little flick to the ceiling above, as if the curling water stain is suddenly going to change shape and spell out the answer to Dustin’s question. He opens his mouth, closes it, and then opens it again.

    Dustin stares. “Blink twice if I broke you.”

    Summary

    “Harrington, are you home?” Tommy H. asked, holding his phone receiver to his ear.

    “Yeah. I’m just hanging out. What about you? I haven’t heard from you in a few days. You under house arrest or something?” Steve joked, though a hint of concern was underlying his tone.

    “Yeah, something like that,” Tommy laughed uneasy. “Listen, are you busy? I’m kinda trying to get out of the house for a minute and you have the nicest pool.”

    OR

    Steve and Tommy spend the weekend together and learn some little things about their parents. (Set before the first season).

    Summary

    After a narrow escape from the Upside Down, it's hard to find your footing.

    Or: Steve Harrington deals with his terrible parents, Robin Buckley refuses to leave her best friend to fend for himself, and Eddie Munson simply will not stop lending Steve his clothes for no reason Steve can see.

    (Or: Steve cares too hard and too deeply to not have someone else care the same way about him. Everyone knows this except, apparently, for Steve.)

    Summary

    "Steve Harrington isn't straight. It's been a few weeks since he sat on that bathroom floor at Starcourt with Robin, where she shared her biggest secret with him and unintentionally unlocked an entirely new side of Steve. Since he’s had to come to terms with being open to exploring that side of him, but he's finally acknowledged that he's most likely, definitely, without a doubt into guys."

    --

    After coming to terms that he may be queer, Steve Harrington does a little exploration on his own and meets the one and only Eddie Munson. Just as things are going well and accepted the fact he's falling for Eddie in their own little bubble, Steve's world is shaken by a tragedy he can't quite talk about. And when the dust settles and he's nearly ready to put the pieces back together, his worlds collide when he realizes his Eddie is the same Eddie playing D&D with the kids. The same Eddie who's now wanted for murder thanks to another upside down monster. How will he save the day when he can barely focus watching his ex mingle with his monster fighting team?

    Summary

    “I had another one.”

    It stops the playful atmosphere instantly.

    Not everyone tells him when they have a Memento. Lucas had kept to himself, and Will had refused to tell Steve about his dream. Some of them just tell him, softly, I remembered number one-seventy-three, or I had a Memento, last night. Sometimes it’s easier to just mention that it happened, acknowledge it and move on.

    And Robin, for the most part, had done this. She hadn’t mentioned the details, because she’s sure that Steve is tired of hearing them, doesn’t want to hear his death from another person’s eyes, another person who is left with his body for a day before the loop dissolves into nothingness.

    AKA: In the aftermath of it all, when Steve is learning what happiness means for him, people start to remember his deaths.
