    Summary

    He tries to give it up, after that. Really, he does. It hurts, the next night, not to dial Mike’s number and tell him about his day, but he doesn’t, and he doesn’t the next night, either, or the next. Will makes it a whole week thinking he’s getting back on track—that it’s going to hurt more, now, but that it’s for the best, and that he’s doing a good job of things, kicking the habit—until Mike calls him.

    Summary

    Eleven tries to remember what Max said—that there’s more to life than stupid boys. Other people besides Eleven are allowed to care about Mike, and when they do, it doesn’t diminish what Eleven and Mike have together.

    Does it?

    Summary

    (Because after (gestures at what Netflix gave us), we really needed a rewrite.)

    It's summer vacation, 1985.
    After everything that's happened in the past two years, Will just wants to go back to the way things were - and the Party seems to be racing on ahead, leaving him behind as they get swept up in the new adventure of being teenagers. But when something darker threatens to reenter their lives, the Party has more to deal with than just dating and summer shenanigans.
    Joyce knows that something is wrong - she can just feel it. And Hopper knows by now to trust her instinct. Together they set out to find answers - and find that not all is as they assumed.
    Unappreciated and heckled at her internship at The Hawkins Post, Nancy picks up the phone to a strange call. Sensing a story, she grabs Jonathan and chases the lead.
    El isn't sure who she is - or if she has the strength to defeat the evil that's rearing its head in this once-quiet town.
    Dustin picks up a strange code on his ham radio.
    Steve hates his Scoops uniform.
    Something strange is stirring in Hawkins - something that wants to get back in.

    One summer can change everything.

    Summary

    It’s been two days since Will moved away from Hawkins, and he still hasn’t heard from Mike. El has heard from Mike, of course: she’s on the phone with him now, in her room, just like she was for hours last night. “Hey, Will,” she calls when he passes her on his way to the kitchen, “Mike says hi—” and Will could just strangle the both of them, if he wanted to start something, but he doesn’t.

    Summary

    Mike didn't expect the summer to end like this: with his ex girlfriend and his best friend moving away. He wished he could stop Mrs. Byers from making the drastic decision, but he knew it was for the best. He just wishes it's for the best.

    Or the one where Mike Wheeler realizes his feelings a little bit too late.

    Summary

    I wrote this idea at 5 am a few days ago, and I decided to write it. Will’s a little scared of giving Mike a present he really wants to give for his birthday, so he tries his best. Feelings ensue. Badly written.

    It was near the end that Will seemed to be preparing himself- he knew he couldn’t stall forever, and he had to do it soon.

    “Uh.. Mike?”
    Approaching his friend slowly, Mike had glanced over to him curiously.
    “Yeah?”
    “Uh.. could we talk? Like.. outside maybe? I just, uhm. Have so-something important to tell you.”
    “Of course! Here, c’mon. I’ll be right back, guys.”

    This was it.

    Summary

    There was something inside of Will that had always been there, lingering, quiet enough that he could ignore it most of the time. It started to grow louder over time, though, ceasing to bother hiding itself. It manifested itself in the little ways he wasn’t like the other kids, in the knot he got in his stomach when his friends talked about girls and he felt like he couldn’t say anything without someone seeing right through him to something even he didn’t know. In the feelings that started bursting in his chest when Mike looked at him softly. Will didn’t know what exactly it all meant, what this thing inside of him was. He didn’t really want to know.

    The episodes continued and they felt so real but the doctor continuously assured him and his mom that they weren’t. It made Will feel like he was hiding something, and like one day he was going to burst from all that he was holding in.
