    Summary

    Steve is (maybe) a little bit still in love with Nancy Wheeler and (maybe) trying to figure himself out-- between the night terrors and the babysitting and the general weirdness that is Hawkins, Indiana-- before he graduates.

    Billy Hargrove fits in there somewhere (probably).

    Summary

    Max threw her arms up in annoyance and Billy stood up, tossing his headphones to the ground carelessly. He crossed his arms, glaring down at Max, but she did the exact same thing. Billy seemed to give in, shouting “Fine!” So loudly that even Steve could hear. Max grinned, jumping into the blue Camaro while Billy got into his own seat, visibly angry. Steve watched as the car sped off so fast it left skid marks on the concrete car park.

    “He left his bag and Walkman,” Steve murmured, mostly to himself. Dustin shrugged and the two boys in the back remarked about how they didn't care, but Steve did. He got out of the car, walking over to pick up the backpack without looking at it’s contents and the cassette player. He’d give them back to Billy on Monday, he decided as he dumped them at Dustin’s feet.

    Billy leaves a bag in the school parking lot. Steve takes it before anybody else can, and discovers a recording of Billy's mother speaking. He also finds out a few secrets about Billy that Billy never wanted anybody to know about.

    Summary

    'I am breaking Mr Segundus’s trust in writing to you without his knowledge, but he will not hear of doing it himself. I do not know if you have quarrelled, but I beg you to return to Starecross with all possible urgency. Mr Segundus remains ill. The doctor has visited twice this week, and I fear he can only be with us again soon. I do not know if you can be of any assistance, but it is most serious.'

    Summary

    Segundus held him hard and looked at his face with wide eyes. Childermass tolerated this examination, only flinching back when Segundus’ other hand came up toward his face.

    “There is a black cloud about you,” Segundus said. His fingers did not actually reach Childermass; rather, they grasped at the air around him as if the black cloud he spoke of was not a cloud at all, but rather a curtain he could draw aside if he could but seize upon it. “It responds to me, but I cannot make it leave.”

    Magic has always been a constant for Childermass- not least because he is cursed. But when Segundus falls ill, everything might change.

    Summary

    John Segundus and John Childermass find themselves trapped in a dark dream of a faerie forest together, and must escape before sunrise or risk never waking again. The fact that they somewhat fall in love over the course of it is largely an accident.
