    Summary

    El had been eighteen when they put a name to the gap in her heart.

    PTSD, they called it. El knew it was short for post-traumatic stress disorder: just another long jumble of syllables she had to become familiar with. Hopper explained it was a way of being sick. Most sicknesses hurt your body, make your throat scratch and your bones ache. But this sick comes from your brain, and it makes you hurt in ways words don't do a good job describing, not that El was good with them anyway.

    Summary

    Mike and Eleven are done with the monsters of Hawkins for now, but that doesn't mean they're in the clear as far as parents and high school go. Not even close.
    A new girl starts at Hawkins High with a specific mission: talk to Will Byers, Zombie Boy, and save her missing twin brother. She doesn't mean to drag the whole gang into her disaster, let alone across state lines.

    Or, a collection of top 100 songs from the year of 1987 and how they correlate to Mike and Eleven's relationship, as well as the town of Hawkins. Chapter names are sort of spoilers! I just had this idea in my head of when El figures out that not all music is like the boring radio stations Hopper plays in the car, that maybe she gets carried away and never wants to turn it off and be in the silence of the Hawkins lab.

    Summary

    Snippets out of Mike and El's life after she closed the gate to the Upside Down. They learn things together, go to school together, grow up together.
    So much fluff. Just your favourite stranger things ship being cute.
    A bit of making out and swearing, but it's still really pure.

    Latest chapter:
    El is curious as to why people laugh when being tickled. She herself is not ticklish because all those years of prodding and poking at the Lab have left scars and her being desensitized to the tickles.
    So Mike obviously has to cheer her up.
