    Summary

    Days stretch out, long and slow. Steve tries to ignore the only thing he’s sure of: Eddie ran. He ran from him, ran from all of them.

    Or: Steve's having a rough couple of years, thanks for asking.

    Summary

    Once, only a few weeks before his parents decide he’s too old to be tucked into bed at night, Steve grabs his mother by the wrist and asks, “Does Father love me?”

    “Of course he does,” she says immediately, smoothing the blanket where it rests over his chest.

    Steve blinks up at her. “Then how come he never says it?”

    She purses her lips. “He shouldn’t have to, sweetheart. You should just know.”

    (It isn’t until years down the line that Steve realizes she’d somehow turned that into being his fault.)

    or; Steve Harrington through the years, on loving and being loved.

    Summary

    “Damn you, Harrington.” Eddie shakes his head, looking back at the box again. He can see Robin looking at him, but Eddie avoids looking at her. He didn’t want to answer questions about his damn crush on Steve freaking Harrington and how he keeps getting more perfect by the minute. Eddie needs him to stop, like literally right now.

    “Oh my god,” Dustin screams, making Eddie look at him from across the room. Eddie finds him staring at someone, so he follows his line of sight and finds one Steve Harrington, yeah, that one, the one he just asked a second ago to stop being perfect? Yeah, that guy is standing at the bottom of the stairs with a crumpled box in his hands and is wearing glasses.

    Steve Harrington just exceeded perfect.

    -

    Or: 5 times Eddie falls in love with Steve wearing glasses and the 1 time Steve finds out.

    Summary


    June 1986
    Steve is lonely.

    He’s always been lonely, honestly. An empty house, absent parents, friends that didn’t really know him. Frankly, he probably doesn’t really know himself, either. It used to be easier to ignore—between sports and parties and searching for the next girl to hang around with.

    Then Nancy Wheeler told him he was bullshit. In the wreckage of the storm, he realized she probably hadn’t been that off base to call his life bullshit.

    [Life in Hawkins, Indiana is boring, ordinary, no supernatural entities. Steve still changes.

    Luckily, he still makes some new friends, too. Certain people are simply meant to be in the same story.]

    Summary

    Hearing Damage: Thom Yorke

    Steve wishes he could remember it.
    When he didn't have to concentrate on words so hard that he probably looked constipated.
    When he didn't have to train his eyes on peoples lips to catch the words they were saying.
    When he didn't have to turn to volume so loud that he could feel it vibrating in his bones.

    Or, how many angsty head cannons can I fit in one fic?
    Anyways- Steve is deaf. Inspired by this post by @weewoooweeeoo on Tumblr.
