    Summary

    “So. To summarize. I’m stranded on Mars, entirely alone. I have absolutely no way to communicate with my crew or with earth, since our communications antennae turned me into a human shish-kabob. If the oxygenator becomes compromised, I’ll suffocate. If the water reclaimer stops working, I’ll dehydrate. Breach in the Hab means I’ll go poof. And if, for some god-forsaken reason none of those things kill me first, I’m gonna run out of food and starve to death. Oh, and we can’t forget that everyone I know thinks I’m dead. So… yup. Totally fucked.”

    On Sol 6, an unexpected windstorm cuts the Ares III Mission short and six astronauts retreat back to Earth.

    On Sol 7, the astronaut they left behind wakes up gasping for air.

    Summary

    “Don’t get possessed by a clown monster, Eds, it’s just not worth the cool shit you can do.”

    “There’s nothing cool about living in a sewer and being possessed by the thing that tried to eat you,” says Eddie.

    “Exactly,” says Richie.

    or: Richie saves Eddie, but dies in his stead. a month later, Eddie starts dreaming of Richie, and soon finds out that he's not quite dead yet—It's possessed him, but Richie's fighting back. he can't hold on forever, though, so the Losers, especially Eddie, race against the clock to save Richie from Its clutches. and in the meantime, Eddie has to wrestle with his feelings for his childhood best friend, awakened by Richie's last words.

    (alternately: Tam Lin, but gay and with a clown instead of fairies!)

    Summary

    Eddie lives. Richie has made peace with him not being a major part of his life moving forward, content with the knowledge that he saved Eddie from being killed by It. I mean, they'd already lost 27 years, let old dogs lie...or some shit like that. That is until Eddie shows up in Richie's apartment one night in need of a place to stay and decisions have to be made - it isn't exactly like Richie can just put his comedy tour on hold.

    Summary

    “I mean, once you kill the beast that’s usually where the story ends, isn’t it? There’s not supposed to be some crazy… hundreds-of-people-brought-back-from-colonial-fucking-times bullshit, right?”

    “Well… in Jaws, they were fighting a shark,” Ben tries, and God, this guy is exactly as too fucking nice as he was when he was about a foot shorter and two feet wider, because he’s actually humoring Richie with this. “We were fighting something decidedly less… normal, so it makes sense that what follows might be a bit abnormal, too.”

    “A bit abnormal? You’re calling all this a bit abnormal, Haystack?”

    Or: Killing It doesn’t just kill It.

    Derry is now dealing with a new nightmare of the legal and logistical sort, Richie doesn’t want to look a gift turtle in the mouth, the Losers Club is better with kids than their parents ever were, and Eddie Kaspbrak is a mess. Not that that’s news to anyone.

    Summary

    "Hey, Richie?"

    "What?"

    "Thanks for staying with me," Eddie waved at the piles of paperwork and surrounding medical equipment. "For all of this."

    Richie smiled, blinking hard. "Of course, Eds."

    "Seriously, I couldn't do this without you."

    Something snapped in Richie. He crossed the room in one long stride, knelt down and grabbed Eddie's hand. His hands were enormous, pressed hot and tight over Eddie's fingers. "Yes, you could." He spoke with such intensity he sounded almost angry. Hot breath pushed onto Eddie's skin with every word he spoke. "You could do this without anyone."

    "Okay, but you make it better."
