    Summary

    At first the pillar of stone and mortar had seemed desolate, possibly abandoned long ago. However, as Steve stood at the edge of the clearing a figure approached and called up to the heavens.

    “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!“

    Whether it was to rescue treasure or a damsel in distress, Steve was born and bred for such adventures. It was in his blood. Little did he know what true treasure awaited his discovery.

    (Or—this is the story where Billy is being held like Rapunzel by an evil sorcerer and Steve has to rescue him)

    Summary

    (Season 3 spoilers) Against all odds, a presumed-dead Alexei wakes up, and seeks out the only place he can really call home. Very much a 3x07 fix-it fic. These two will be safe and happy at all costs if I have anything to say about it.

    Summary

    Hawkins holds secrets, the kind that conquer and divide. When Billy barely survives the attack of the Mind Flayer on that fateful hot Fourth of July, he is left blinded and scarred in more ways than one. As Hawkins settles back into a new normal, Steve makes a spur-of-the-moment decision to offer his friendship to the one person who he feels might need it most: Billy Hargrove. Though the darkness of the Upside Down may try to rip people apart, sometimes it’s the thing that brings them together.

    Summary

    Season 3 spoilers

    The chest wound wasn't the worst of it, really. Probably would have been if he'd been awake for it, but for the first six weeks after Billy almost died he was in a medicated haze somewhere so classified he never knew the name of the facility or the faces of any of its staff. ...

    No, the worst of it had come a few days into week seven. A nice woman with a sweet voice had come in to explain to him exactly what the extent of his injuries were. Turned out humans just weren't meant to hold a demonic force from another dimension. ... The woman used words like "cortisol" and "parasympathetic nervous system" and "pervasive joint weakness", and Billy stared at her blankly. When he finally understood what she was getting at, he squeezed the rails of his bed until his knuckles turned white.

    -

    After the Mindflayer, Billy is left with some lasting effects. Luckily he's got some people to help him through.
