    Summary

    Ever since his car accident, Eddie Kaspbrak has been feeling a little...off. The medicines in his cabinets don't look quite right, the streets he should know like the back of his hand seem strange, and the oblong device in his pocket is called a Cell Phone and he doesn't exactly know why he knows that. Maybe it has to do with his accident-induced fever dream of a massive, talking turtle. He's promised love, deep and authentic love, but doesn't exactly see how that's possible for a guy like him. No, Eddie's positive he'll die alone.

    Richie Tozier has a codeine-fueled dream where a less than majestic turtle tells him it wants to help and will do all it can to heal what ails him—so long as he keeps an open mind. He takes these words to heart and starts to say yes to anything and everything, from coffee he doesn't want to expensive cologne. He even lets Steve talk him into taking a luxury car service to his New York appearances instead of Ubering like a rookie. Nothing seems that different until he gets in the back of a limousine driven by a timid, doe-eyed blond man who introduces himself as Edward Kaspbrak. Oh, this is getting WEIRD.

    Summary

    When Eddie died, everything had clicked into place. For once, he'd been brave enough. For a moment, Richie had gotten to hold him.

    Now Eddie's back. Some mysterious force has lifted him out of the ground and set him back on his feet, and he's going to have to learn to walk on his own for once. Meanwhile, Richie is still mourning, because he's always known better than to hope.

    Also featuring: the turtle's attempts at therapy, an ill-advised stint as a telephone operator, the most awkward coming out in history, the Lumberjacks Olympic Pine-a-Thon, and some George Romero shit.

    Summary

    "And oh God, the kids!" Eddie blurts out before he can stop himself. "What the fuck am I supposed to tell the kids, man?!"
    Richie's face goes about three shades paler, his eyes very large and very blue behind his glasses. "I'm gonna need you to back up a bit, Eds. What kids?"

    In which Eddie Kaspbrak gets divorced, comes out, introduces his two kids to the friends he forgot, and falls in love again. Not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    But as he left his fantastic bathroom after taking a relaxing bath in his spa-like tub, he suddenly felt a tug inside his guts as his blurry sight caught a short figure from the corner of his eyes. Richie calmly reached for his glasses by the short dresser and froze when a familiar face came into his view after putting them on—a kid who definitely didn’t belong here.

    Not here, as in this house.

    Here, as in this fucking year.

    Summary

    “Is yours beating yet?” Eddie asks of Stan.

    Stan raises a weary brow, pressing his fingers to his jugular. “No. Yours?”

    “Why would mine be beating if yours isn’t? We came back at the same time.”

    “I was mostly dead longer than you were mostly dead. Maybe it’s about that.”

    Eddie scowls, and then tests his pulse point. “Nothing. Does that make us zombies?”

    Stan purses his lips thoughtfully. “What’s your definition of a zombie?”

    “Undead.”

    “I don’t think we’re undead. We’d have to have been all the way dead to be undead. Were you all the way dead?”

    “Obviously not. Were you?”

    “I thought I was. Maybe I wasn’t. So, no, not zombies, just - maybe still partially dead?”

    Eddie grunts, scowl now directed at his coffee mug. “Comforting.” His gaze flicks up to Mike. “What should we do?”

    Mike shrugs, taken aback. “How should I know?”

    Summary

    Derry isn’t an ordinary town. Richie Tozier knows this; he is a Loser after all. Why, then, is he still surprised when the town doesn’t let them go without a fight?

    Together with the surviving members of the Lucky Seven, Richie finds himself flung back into the summer of nineteen ninety-three. Stuck in their own past, they team up with the reluctant and suspicious teenage Losers to try and find a way home.

    Perhaps, if they can just work out what the hell the giant floating turtle in the sky is telling them, they can get out of this in one piece.

    All of them.

    Summary

    “Richie,” Eddie starts, and they both look to him. He fidgets in discomfort. “Okay, for the sake, of, um… clarity. What if we call you Rich–” he points to other-Richie, his-Richie, before turning his gaze back, “and you, Richie.”

    Both Richies nod.

    “Okay, Richie,” Eddie says. “What’s the last thing you remember, before you woke up?”

    Summary

    Can you hear them? Can you hear their screams? The screams of your brothers and sisters? Their screams of anguish and suffering? I know you can hear them. You aren't the first to try and you aren't going to be the last to fail. And do you really think you can defeat me with the help of your friends? With the help of your precious Bill Denbrough? Well no, I'm sorry to say you're wrong. Your friends are going to die, he is going to die too. All of your loved ones are going to die. And when no one else is left, you will voluntarily surrender to me. You will suffer a fate worse than death itself, I promise you. That stupid Turtle can't save you this time, damn Dæmon.

    Summary

    “What the fuck?” Eddie rasps again, and his breathing picks up, that bitter fear setting into his muscles and making his whole body go taut, constricting his lungs. He pushes harder against the top. Something tells him he needs to calm down, conserve oxygen, but that can’t be right, that can’t be right, that shouldn’t be necessary.

    Underneath the cloying pine scent is the smell of dirt.

    Summary

    “You’re fucking kidding me,” he snapped. Glancing up at the turtle, he felt a surge of irrational anger as it looked back at him. The turtle was looking at him. “Hey, fuck you, dude. Fuck this shit.”
    The turtle blinked slowly, as if comprehending his words. But that was impossible. Turtles couldn’t speak. Wait.
    “Where am I?” Eddie asked. His voice sounded tiny, lost in the cavern. The turtle blinked again.
    “Where am I?” he repeated.

    Eddie dies. He meets a giant fucking turtle. He thinks a lot, mostly about Richie. And he finds himself.

    Summary

    Dr. Kaspbrak spoke at a speed and fervor Richie had only ever heard from Chipmunks (as in Alvin and the).

    (That is to say, Richie was both enamored and deeply endeared by this man)

    “Mr. Tozier?”

    “Does doctor-patient confidentiality start the moment you walk in the room?”

    “Uh,” Dr. Kaspbrak paused. “Yes?”

    “Cool, because I think Dr. Keene is a creepy son of a bitch and the only reason, I see him is because Dr. Phillips downstairs stopped letting me make appointments with her when I turned 21.”

    Dr. Kaspbrak, at Richie’s confession, cracked a smile that was quickly smothered by a carefully contained expression. “Is that right?”

    (In which it only takes a taste when it's something special)

    Summary

    Stanley Uris has never believed in a heaven or hell, but this would be it for him, wouldn't it? Getting to see all of his friends one last time, only to watch them all die horribly. That's why he didn't go. That's why he couldn't go. He couldn't stand by and see them die. He couldn't walk into this town again and never come out.

    But here he is anyway. And wasn't it stupid to think that he wouldn't be? He made a promise.

    Or: What if after Stan died, he came back to Derry as a ghost? Forced to watch his friends suffer, and unable to help them. Unless...
