    Summary

    “Easy Harrington.” Came the unmistakable voice of the police chief.

    Steve’s brain went through about 12 emotions before it landed on relief, reaching both arms up to grab Hopper’s shoulders and pull himself up using the weight of the man. “Oh thank fuck."

    Summary

    Realistically, he knows he can’t hear the sound of Billy’s body hitting the floor, but it feels like he can and it echoes through the drug induced haze his brain has been in. It’s enough to bring him out of the freeze he’d fallen into.

    “Billy!”

    Featuring:

    Billy fights a monster. And wins.
    Steve is a Worried Kind-Of Boyfriend.
    Robin and El are awesome.

    Summary

    Steve couldn’t believe he was doing this.

    Then again, with his curiosity history, it wasn’t all that unbelievable.

    The thing was, after Starcourt, they were pretty sure Billy Hargrove was dead. Like, dead dead, gone, you know? Which was a reasonable assumption, considering, you know, his chest was kinda carved like a pumpkin by the Mind Flayer.

    So imagine their surprise when, after having his body taken by Owens and his goons, Billy Hargrove simply reappeared smoking on the school grounds like nothing ever happened.

    And yes, they all received the weird apology notes.

    But, well. Steve’s note had an extra line that said meet me at the lake next Wednesday, 7pm.

    And Steve, the idiot, was going.

    Summary

    The ghost of Billy Hargrove leaned in the open window of Steve’s car with that trademark smirk and, honestly, Steve was kind of impressed by how detailed his own hallucination could be.
    “Wanna fuc-What the shit? HARRINGTON?”
    They blinked at one another for about ten seconds before Steve’s brain finally managed to fire off a thought.
    “You’re real?”
    Steve couldn’t stop the words from spilling out of his mouth, his own stupidity a constant echo in his empty head. Billy’s face reflected his thoughts as he yanked on the door handle until Steve reached over to hit the lock with shock-numb fingers.
    “Real fucking freezing. Let me in, pencil dick.”

    Or: The Pretty Woman AU literally nobody asked for.

    Summary

    “So, what do you think… I mean there aren’t many things that could do… that.” There was something about the scar, it felt… Steve wasn’t sure what to call it. Bad, didn’t feel like it cut it. It was if there was something inherently evil about the scar and whatever had happened to leave it there. There was a time in Steve’s life that he would have scoffed at the thought.

    Not anymore.

    “You know Steve, this probably means your future wife only has one boob.” Dustin managed to get out around the giant shit eating grin plastered across his face. “Like some weird cyclops wife only with tits.”

    There was a beat where no one spoke, then, “Jesus Christ, Henderson.” Steve groaned, “Are you fucking kidding me?”

    -

    Steve Harrington is doing his best to move on with his life post Starcourt Mall Incident™. He’s working his ass off at Family Video, trying to keep up with a new apartment, and putting in the work to earn a Babysitter Of The Year award apparently.

    But then Billy fucking Hargrove returns from the dead, and Steve wakes up with a scar that looks like someone tried to run his chest through a meat grinder.

    Or the post-season three soulmate au no one asked for.

    Summary

    He raised my hands in the backyard
    He taught me to be a good shot
    You love the sound of sorry
    Even when you know i'm not
    In the holy land of broken homes
    You still pretend you don't know

    Summary

    He laughs, brokenly. It causes his ruined lung to ache, but he does it all the same, because much as he wants to, he can’t blame the fact that he and Steve had broken up late Monday night on the little shitstains. They’d been cruel, unnecessarily so, and they’d stuck their little noses where they didn’t belong, but it’s not like they’d said anything that Billy hadn’t told himself one-thousand times over.

    Turns out you can still be a worthless SOB, even when you (almost) die to save a bunch of ungrateful bastards’ lives. It’s kinda funny. It also makes him want to sob.

    AKA

    Steve and Billy's relationship is accidentally outed to the Party. The kids take it poorly, and Billy tries to be a good person and breaks his and Steve's hearts in the process.

    Summary

    Its silent for a while. Billy's face still cradled in his palm, thumb stroking his cheek and fingers resting against his hip. He drinks it in, not daring to move no matter how much he wanted to run his hands up Steve's shirt and press his face to his stomach. Trap him in his arms. Imagines being so close he becomes a literal part of him, wants to see if Steve could leave him then.

    Summary

    read the tags or read this, or read the title idc

    this is not a story first and foremost, so don't get salty in the comments when you discover that it is not.

    that was a weird sentence but, irrelevent, this is a story concept that I just came up with at four in the morning, it has spoilers for season 3 of stranger things and the finale of Merlin I guess.

    Please tell me if you like the idea or not, I am a very unmotivated person and I need something to do other than watch stupid videos all day long, thanks.

    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.
