    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

    When Billy's done in the cereal aisle, there's so many fucking people ahead of him, in all of the lines, and he's got to go pick up Max, and now he's going to be late, and Dad's going to kill him, and.

    And Harrington's up by the front of one of the lines.

    He whistles, waves when he catches Billy looking at him, calls out, "Babe, I'm over here." When Billy pushes through the crowd, gets up to the counter, he can hear Harrington telling the cashier, in this weird soft fond voice, "I gotta just get him on a leash, or something; this is getting ridiculous."

    Billy raises an eyebrow.

    Harrington gives him an innocent smile. "What's wrong, babe?"

    Billy presses up against Harrington's back, loops his arms around Harrington, smiles at the blushing cashier. He ducks his head, just for a second, presses his face in against Harrington's neck, before he murmurs, "Goddamn, sweetheart. People don't need to know all of our business."



    ALTERNATIVELY: billy and steve 'pretend' to be gay boyfriends in love for what is essentially just extremely small-time personal gain.

    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.
