    Summary

    He did his part protecting the kids, put his nail bat to good use but something went wrong. One of the monster dogs had gotten ahold of one of the kids, he couldn’t remember their name, but it’s not like it mattered which one of them it got. He couldn’t let any of them get hurt, he was watching out for them.

    He was the closest thing they had to an adult so he had to act like it.

    The kid let out a high-pitched shriek of terror as the monster dog dragged them through some tear in the walls that was made out of some weird fleshy stuff Steve didn’t want to think about.

    Steve didn’t hesitate as he ran in after them.

    (AU set during the end of season two where Steve gets trapped in the upside down and escapes through a tear in dimensions that leads to a different Earth and a familiar face)

    Summary

    “You’re all my favorites.”

    Will snorts violently, pressing his face into Steve’s shoulder to contain his wheezing laughter. El blinks at him, before breaking out in sudden giggles, eyes darting over to where Dustin and Lucas have reformed their friendship to chant “Fight! Fight! Fight!” over Max putting Mike in another headlock while he pulls at her hair. She glances back over to him, giggling even harder.

    “I know, crazy right?”

    “Very,” Will snickers, and El nods vigorously in agreement.

    ————

    Hawkins, Indiana, November 1984. The gate is closed, and there are no more interdimensional monsters to fight.

    Life moves on. Steve tries to along with it.

    Summary

    In 1986, Steve and Robin move cross-country to attend the University of California, Sunnydale.

    ---

    "So what's your roommate like, if he's arrived?" Robin asks. 

    "British," Steve says. "Wesley Wyndham-Price."

    "Wow, that is English," Robin says, "Sounds like old money. They put the rich boys in the same room, huh?"

    Steve chucks the napkin back at her. "Hah," Steve says. "Only the ones who've been through shit, by the looks of him."

    Robin nods. "I got the same feeling from Tara," She says, "My roommate - her name's Tara. Maclay."

    Steve mimics her nod. "Cool," he says.

    "Yep," She smiles. "She's cool. Wicca, or witch or something. Loads of crystals and shit. Draped her side of the room in a fuck-tonne of red velvet and like, sheer chiffon or whatever the fuck. Cool vintage thrifted shit."

    "She cute?" Steve teases. "Dingus," Robin reaches over to shove at his shoulder, and then, with a quick glance around, "Yeah, she's hot."

    Summary

    'She started spending extra hours at the library with Nancy and sometimes even Byers, when he wasn’t working. She started sleeping with her bat by her bed, the nails hidden by the skirt of her night table, and when a storm got bad and the lights began to flicker, she yanked the cleaver from the butcher’s block in the kitchen and slept with it under her pillow.
    She slept restlessly, but she slept.'

    Stevie Harrington is on a self-improvement kick.
    Figures, the evil forces from another dimension just have to come back and fuck it all up for her.
    That, and Billy Hargrove.

    Summary

    Set after season 3; The job at the video store isn't working out all that great for Steve, so when he finds an ad offering a live in position on a farm, he jumps at the chance. What he doesn't expect is for the guy interviewing him to have Billy Hargrove's face. The problem is, Billy - if this even is Billy - seems to have completely forgotten who he is, and now Steve has to decide whether it's the morally right thing to push him to remember, or let him live his life out peacefully on the farm.

    Featuring: amnesia which actually isn't, Neil being a violent asshole, Max running away from home, Steve having a teeny tiny mini sexuality crisis, Robin steps in to offer dating advice, and, ultimately, Billy doing the right thing.

    A Harringrove Big Bang 2021 story, written by Dogsled and illustrated by the lovely and amazing 1jet2unknown who has been so incredibly patient with me! (check out the art in chapter 4!)

    Summary

    Steve learned when he was eight years old he wasn’t a Harrington.

    “You better do greater next time, you’re an investment.”

    Steve was twelve when he realized his house wasn’t a home, it was a storage unit, a coffin for every little expensive item his parents had purchased on their trips. And Steve, he was the most expensive let down in the house.

    Summary

    Steve has been able to see the dead for years, except nobody believed him. He had been to therapists, priests of any church, and he had visited Hopper even from this condition. He never thought he'd be able to get through it until someone different had died, someone, he couldn't get along within the first place.

    Summary

    Steve narrows his eyes, says: “Are you about to kill me?” 

    The guy laughs. It sounds like honey, Steve thinks, or maybe like poison. Feels like heaven and hell all at once. Steve's itching to hear it again.

    or: Billy's a complete asshole and Steve's trying to be a better person. Somehow it works, just for them.

    Summary

    “He’s eighteen with no goddamn idea what he’s doing. With his life, with his weed, and right now, with his right hand... slowly stroking his stomach. When did that start?”

    Steve gets high. That's not too difficult to navigate, though he does gets weirdly introspective for a minute. Then, he tries to jack off without thinking about dudes. Without thinking about one man in particular, really. That... proves to be a greater challenge.

    Summary

    “It’s a big change and it’s not easy to adjust, but it will get better, you’ll see. You just need to give it time and be good. You want to be good, don’t you, Billy?”
    Billy clenches his jaw so hard he could break a tooth, swallows. The shock collar they snapped around his neck as soon as they processed him catches against the flutter of his throat. He swallows again, against the metallic taste of the drugs flooding his mouth, against shame and rage. He feels like screaming, like sleeping, like crying.
    He closes his eyes.
    What was the question again?
    It doesn’t matter. He’s smart, he knows that the answer is yes, ma’m. It always is.

    Or: The indentured!Billy fic no one asked for.

    Summary

    He only came for this. For his - what's the word?

    His resignation. 

    To step down from his fake platform, and to hand his crown over. 

    Had willingly walked into this party, just to be dethroned. Or. 

    Just because he felt like fighting. 

    He knew he could count on Billy Hargrove to give him that.

    Summary

    The kitchen looked like a war zone. Flour covered almost every inch of the floor. Billy had voiced his complaints in the grocery store when Steve had grabbed the stupidly large bag of flour, knowing that Steve would make a mess with it. The various baking ingredients were scattered haphazardly on the counter near the sink. The sink itself was filled with just about every measuring device in the house. There was a whole bowl of prepared chocolate chip cookie dough just sitting on the counter. And Steve looked like a disaster.

    Or

    Where Steve is a mess, makes a mess and stress bakes
