    Summary

    The game had been absolutely horrible. Steve knew he’d played like shit and the coach had laid into him unlike he ever had before. All he wanted to do was shower the overwhelming stench of defeat off of himself and go the hell home. He’d waited until the rest of the team had showered and left, one by one, clearing out and leaving him to be alone with his guilt. Of course, he wasn’t alone. Of course, there would be someone left for him to avoid and ignore. And not just anyone, Billy Hargrove.

    Summary

    Billy’s sitting in the last cell, jammed up against bars and wall. When he hears the door open, he jumps to his feet, pushes hair out of his face, bares his teeth and–

    “Oh,” he says, when he sees them. His voice is so carefully blank. Steve shuts his eyes for a second.

    “You have ten minutes,” Hopper warns. “Then I want him gone.” Steve opens his eyes, nods.

    “Yes, sir,” Billy says, snapping a salute behind the bars.

    Summary

    "There's blood on your face," Steve said numbly. He touched his own mouth. His fingers came back dark and slick with blood.

    Billy threw back his head and laughed. Red stained his teeth. "You gonna still kiss me, darling?"

    Summary

    "I loved you," Steve said thickly. "Once."

    "Once, huh? What happened to forever?"

    "You left."

    Billy didn't say anything for a long time. He turned the paintbrush over in his hand, calloused fingers dancing over the handle, flicking over the cheap bristles. "You didn't tell me to stay," he said, soft, tortured.

    Summary

    “This doesn’t have anything to do with anything, Mr Hargrove.”

    Billy’s tongue touched his upper lip. Steve stared harder, swallowing down the lump in his throat. “I’m asking.”

    Steve cleared his throat. “No and no. Can we get back to the questions?”

    “We can if you let me suck your cock.”

    “What.”

    “Let me suck your cock and I’ll answer all the questions you want.”

    Summary

    When they get to a point where they can just barely hear the thumping of the music over the chirping crickets, Billy’s serious expression cracks and he bursts out laughing like a drunken, deranged hyena. Steve can’t help but join in, and then they’re both giggling and stumbling around the forest like idiots. Steve bumps into him to snatch the bottle of whiskey from his fist and takes a burning swallow. It warms his blood too much in the balm of the edge-of-summer night and he drags the back of a hand over his mouth with a ragged sound before passing it back. Billy snickers at his expense and fishes a cigarette out of his pack.

    Summary

    Steve hates that sometimes when he talks to Billy every single word comes out wrong or too slow, like he’s learning a foreign language. He guesses he kind of is.

    It should be easy. It isn't, but it will be.

    Summary

    “I just thought it would have been nice. You keep saying you hate the cold, so.” Steve shrugs nonchalantly, in an attempt to conceal how much he would love to hide from the silence that follows. What’s dealing with Billy possibly rejecting his gesture compared to a Demogorgon’s sharp teeth? Scarier, by all accounts.

    Steve knew that what he just pulled out is pretty much a romantic textbook move the moment he started planning it, and he kept asking himself if he was losing his mind while gathering the pillows on the floor.

    Summary

    Steve takes a second to feel relieved he’s not Dustin getting all sorts of arrested in places he shouldn’t be, then he goes back to staring.

    Steve hasn’t seen Billy Hargrove since high school. Three years ago.

    The cop is staring at them, looking back and forth. “So uh,” the cop says, “Are you boys…good? If you’re still willing to vouch for him, then I’ll need you to sign for him, Mr. Harrington.”

    “Steve,” Steve corrects absently, at the same time Billy corrects, "Princess." The cop coughs awkwardly, and Steve walks up to the front, signs for Billy like he’s a package, or he guesses, in trouble with the law.

    Summary

    When Charles Xavier moves to London and buys a house with his boyfriend Warren, he thinks his life is finally coming together in a way that everyone, including himself, has always expected. Erik Lehnsherr, on the other hand, is struggling to keep his life together after his recent divorce, now having to raise his three-year-old by himself. Neither is prepared to meet at work or, in fact, ever again: they have met before, now nearly ten years ago, when they conducted a passionate love affair that was over before it even began. Yet their attraction is still undeniable, and as Erik asks Charles out for a drink, Charles somehow forgets to mention that he's already seeing someone.
