Prowling around the Hawkins woods late at night was not something Steve Harrington was a stranger to; it just wasn’t something he’d done in a while. Especially not with what he was hoping to find tonight.
It’s been five months since Starcourt – since Billy Hargrove died – and Steve’s back to pretending. But then, very suddenly, he’s not.
“I’m fucking tired.” He whined. “My roommate keeps getting home in the middle of the night and having very loud and very drunk sex while I’m trying to sleep.”
“Poor, pretty boy.” Billy cooed gently, and it didn’t even sound that taunting this time. Maybe Steve was losing his mind to lack of sleep. “How ever will you stay so pretty if you don’t get your beauty rest? Come, lay down.” He patted the bed behind him.
Steve knew that Billy was kidding, because that’s what Billy did. He joked and poked and prodded, playfully or maliciously, depending on his mood. But Steve was tired, okay? And Billy was being nice – well, as nice as Billy could be.
See, the thing is, Steve’s just happy that he made it to college and that some of his friends ended up there with him. Somehow “friends” now also included Billy Hargrove? How that happened, Steve would never really understand. But that didn’t stop him from desperately wanting Billy to kiss him again.
Steve’s just trying his best to be normal while ignoring Robin and Heather’s meddling, pretending half the school wasn’t obsessed with his dick, and doing everything in his power to ignore his huge crush on Billy Hargrove.
They haven’t spoken since the night at the Byers.
Since Billy beat Harrington’s pretty face in and the kids had left him on the floor of some freaky house, dosed up to hell.
Billy sees him at school and watches the bruises fade from his pale skin, tries to ignore Steve the best he can. It's what he's supposed to do, what he told Max he'd do. So he watches the colors of Steve’s face come back to normal. Watches the light in his eyes sort of fade.
Billy ignores Steve Harrington until he can’t anymore.
Because Steve doesn’t look good, and Billy was never able to leave a scab alone.
Billy sees Steve Harrington sitting alone at lunch and just can't help himself from getting involved. He just needs to keep reminding himself that he’s not interested in Harrington - he’s not. (He is.)
Summer went on like that and it was normal. Until it wasn’t.
Because of course it couldn’t stay normal.
Because this was Hawkins. Because if the last two years taught him anything, it was that nothing stays normal for long.
So, Starcourt happens and it’s bad. Like, really bad.
And, Hopper had… an idea. One he’s presenting to them now. One Steve really would’ve liked to have heard prior to walking into this room.
Hop wants Steve to get an apartment and he wants Billy to live there.
Billy survives Starcourt and becomes roommates with Steve.

They don’t talk about the punch. Or the fact that they hadn’t seen each other in six years. They don’t talk about how he left her alone in the woods, walked out of her life without a second glance back. They don’t talk about a lot of things.
Especially not about the fact that he was apparently dance royalty. But, no one really talked to him about that, it wasn’t just exclusively her like all the other shit.
The one where Arya and Gendry used to be friends until they're not, and then sort of are again. Featuring - famous family members, meddling friends, oblivious Gendrya, and a lot of inappropriate lifts.
