    Summary

    “Is that you, Mike?” A soft voice called. 

    “Yeah,’’ Mike whispered. Then, as loud as he dared, “Yeah, it’s me.’’ Stepping as lightly as possible on the creaky old stairs, Mike made his way down into the basement. 

    Lying on his stomach, a blanket that wasn’t quite long enough tossed over him, was Will. He had an impossibly thick paperback novel propped up on a pillow and was reading by the light of a single lamp. He looked up when he saw Mike. Will smiled. Mike smiled back. “You know the couch is right there.’’

    In which a drunk Mike pays a midnight call on a visiting Will. It goes about as well as you might expect. Byler. Post-Season 3.

    Summary

    The ash has settled from Starcourt, and the tragedies of the summer.

    Now, as the governments and powers of the world manoeuvre against one another, the splintered Party and their friends and families must repair their broken relationships, whilst grieving their losses and trying to build new lives. But the boundaries between life and death are not exactly as clear-cut as they might appear, and new enemies are emerging on all sides. One way or another, things are going to end this time.

    And then, of course, beneath all this, the spectre of the Upside-Down remains. It's not going away.

    Summary

    Mike scrutinizes the boy beside him, his eyes roaming the curve of his nose and the way his lips curve around his cigarette. 
    “You shouldn’t do that y’know.”
    “Hm?” Will raises an eyebrow.
    “Smoking.” Mike adds, “It's really bad for you. It turns your lungs all black like charcoal, and it’ll rot your fucking teeth. You could get cancer.”
    Good old Mike with his nerdy rants that Will could easily get used to listening for hours. He’ll miss those when he moves away.
    For extra measure as if Will didn’t just hear his list of warnings, Mike adds, “They’re like super-fucking-duper bad for you.”
    Will’s lips pinch together, holding back another grin, before he takes another puff much to Mike’s dismay, “ I do a lot of things I shouldn’t do, Mike,”

    Summary

    Ask Will where it started and he couldn’t pinpoint it for the life of him. Because it had always been there- the insecurity that flooded his brain and made him depict himself in front of the mirror- notice how his teeth were uneven, how his stomach pushed harshly against his shirt, how some days, his belt never seemed to fit, how big his wrists were.

    But ask Will where his control spiralled and he’ll tell you that it was right after his mother punished the demon for invading her son. It was right after the gate closed and the night of the SnowBall.

    Summary

    There were few things that had instilled fear in me since the summer of 1985. After becoming witness to the monsters from my fantasy Dungons and Dragons game come into reality, to seeing the life drain from the eyes of those against us and to be close to the brink of death, my sense of fear was warped.

    Even without all the monsters, Russian spies and government agencies, the true horror is coming home to no one.

     

    A yearish after the events of ST3; just for fun.

    Summary

    Building up their numbers back up is the easy part. But the amalgamation those children call the Mind Flayer knows that if they're going to defeat their enemies, they can’t just depend on the brute force of the hive mind alone. They tried that before, and as a result were split up from the rest of them by the Guardian of the Gate known as Eleven, now only bearing a mere fraction of their former selves. If they want to stand a chance of beating her, if they want to become Whole again, they don’t just need strength, they need tricks and weaknesses as well.

    Lucky that the girl was already kind enough to provide a weakness. What was the name this “El” had called out for again? Mike?

    Mike. Michael. A decent amount of minds offer up, eager and helpless to stop themselves from providing a face, and a target. Michael Wheeler.

    Summary

    Forming pack bonds with someone outside of family didn't happen to werewolves until they were at least sixteen. The most common age was eighteen, when they tended to branch out.

    Sometime during the events of the season 2 finale, the Party formed fully fledged pack bonds with each other. As far as they were concerned, anyone who didn't like it could keep their thoughts to themselves.

    Summary

    Sometimes Will can summon the other side of himself on purpose, if he needs it to use his powers - but usually he’d rather it not come to that.
    Usually if it slips out, if he slips into the other headspace, that other mindset, it’s the opposite of intentional.

    Basically: established relationship, college age. Monster!Will as a side effect of the Upside Down - kind of a vaguely split personality type deal plus Demon Aesthetics. The monster side of Will hasn't done anything sexual with Mike yet and it's starting to wear on him.

    I don’t know why the fuck I’m writing this.

    Summary

    "Jonathan was late. He usually wasn’t but Will was trying not to be worried. It was a different day than usual and he knew how awful Jonathan’s boss and co-workers were. Will tried not to be worried-- he wasn't. It was just that he had spent an hour talking about the night his father left their family; standing outside the doctor’s office was a bit nerve-wracking. It felt too familiar, even with all the talking and note-scribbling.

    Finally, Jonathan’s car pulled into the lot. He was speeding, as much as his car could speed: he knew he was late, which made Will feel a little bit better. No one had forgotten him. It was just traffic or his bosses or maybe just hitting all the red lights. As Jonathan stopped in front of the curb and waved Will in, Will could see he was jittery-- he was upset that he was late. Will felt bad for counting the minutes."

    ((OR what the first ep of (my) s3 would look like if the main concept was: both Steve and Will are gay in 1985’s Summer of Love and the town’s enemy is a little more human; loving friendships, very confused adults, and Will Byers Actually Getting Help.))

    Summary

    “How’d you do it?”

    Dustin looks down to his left, eyebrows knitting together as his sight lands on Will. Will had his eyes closed, cheek squished against his arm that he attempted to use a pillow. Dustin snorts, drunk Will was always so cute and funny.

    “Do what?” Dustin asks. From a distance, Dustin can hear Lucas’ laughter.

    “Ya know..” Will mumbles, “Move on.”
