    Summary

    That’s the thing about dying in some fucked up, monster-riddled underworld: you don’t get a burial. You only get a friend so wrecked with grief he fails to notice you’re not quite dead.
     

    Eddie returns (kind of), acquires a cursed guitar, flirts with a boy, and has to deal with the consequences.

    (Meanwhile Steve is doing his best.)

    Summary

    It starts like this: Steve, waiting in his car to pick up Dustin and friends from a session of their Chutes and Ladders club or whatever. Waiting kind of impatiently, to be honest, even though it’s not like he has anywhere else to be because Robin’s busy tonight and, as he well knows by this point, saving the world doesn’t get you a girlfriend or glory or even a second age-appropriate friend, it just gets you another evening shift at Family Video and a long personal to-do list.

     

     

    In the spring and summer of 1986, Steve Harrington contends with the biases of the day, hatches several plans, and finally really gets to know Eddie Munson.

    Steve Harrington falls in love and gets married. Not in that order. Some other stuff happens along the way too. But those are the two big things. That first one especially.

    Summary

    He can see it in the kid's eyes in the split second before he turns and bolts, and he sighs, because it is such a goddamn hassle to chase down these idiots, sometimes.

    {Derek thinks Stiles is still awake, if just barely, so he gives up his last hope of not getting involved, and whispers, "There's always a way out."}
