    Summary

    Al doesn’t know what he’s doing. Not just with the new apartment, but with his life in general, and it doesn't help that his family quietly looks down on him. It feels as if they’re always waiting for him to do something spectacular, but without actually expecting it of him. They’ve given up on expecting anything of him.

    Al only speaks English, and he sings in the shower, badly. He likes tea, and he cleans when he’s stressed. He sees a therapist. He has a total of two friends, and one of them is his cousin. He isn’t smart; he’s simple.

    He wishes that could be enough.

    Summary

    "Guess I owe you one, huh?" Richie chuckles.

    Across the table, the boy blinks at him with those dark eyes, slow and calculated like a cat. For a moment Richie is struck with the terrible fear that he's going to end up in shreds and spatters of gore, too, but then the boy simply shrugs his narrow shoulders, digging his spoon back into the bowl and helping himself to another mouthful of Froot Loops. In the yellow kitchen light Richie catches the remnants of blood on his chin.

    "I'll take that as a yes."

    Or: Richie, on the cusp of fifteen, knows he should be worrying about kissing girls and sneaking out and keeping his grades up just enough to warrant fewer trips to the principal’s office. ‘Harboring a runaway half-vampire in my bedroom in exchange for saving my life’ was never supposed on that list. Richie still isn’t sure it should be.

    Summary

    "I can't remember who met who first, or who fell in love with who first...
    all I can remember is the seven of us, always together."

     

     

    (a post-grad, inspired by St. Elmo's Fire love song to the Losers)

    Summary

    It starts with an empty fridge. It starts with a big red past due stamp on the bills that pile up on the kitchen counter. It starts with the itch Beverly can feel underneath her skin, constant and all-consuming, the buzzing ache of a past life.

    It starts when Richie Tozier gets out of prison.
