    Summary

    Move on. Let it heal.

    Maybe that’s why Steve said yes when Max asked him to help move boxes out of Billy’s room after the dust settled. He could hear her voice. Too many. Too heavy.

    Just like his wounds. His grief. Too many. Too heavy.

    (Or, Steve steals the glass ashtray from Billy's bedside table and things start to go bump in the night.)

    Summary

    And Billy, curled in a cheap plastic seat with his eyes squeezed shut, wonders, could it really be this easy? Just get on a bus and go home?

    (It isn't that easy).

    Summary

    It’s been almost half a year since the night at the Byers’ house, since Hargrove beat his face to a pulp, since the dogs and the tunnels and the fire, but there’s something in Steve that’s still (stuck) there in the November darkness, waiting for something big and violent and full of teeth to close the brackets, finish what it started. Sometimes he thinks about the thing the kids called the Mindflayer, bigger and hungrier than the dogs. More often he thinks about Billy Hargrove, stronger than him, hungrier than him. The way Steve could see all his teeth as Hargrove knocked the shit out of him.

    They haven’t spoken, since.

    (steve's an unreliable narrator, billy's just unreliable, and the universe is sick and tired of both of them)

    Summary

    Steve doesn't want to start paying attention to Billy Hargrove. It just kind of happens.

    or: the one where Billy keeps crashing at Steve's place, exam season is hard, and Robin knows Steve better than he'd like.
