    Summary

    If you told Steve a year ago that Eddie ‘the freak’ Munson would become a regular at the Harrington household during the summer of ‘86, he would’ve told you that’d be impossible. But that’s just how things go in Hawkins. The impossible never actually seems to manage being impossible. Exhibit A: Eddie ‘the freak’ Munson is now officially one of the gang, and truthfully Steve’s still trying to figure out how he feels about that. And he doesn’t seem to be alone in his ambivalence. Eddie meshes well with almost everyone else in the group, but he still doesn’t seem to know what to make of Steve, which—well, it’s not like Steve’s feelings are hurt, per say, but it certainly doesn’t help the awkward tension he feels whenever they accidentally find themselves alone in a room together.
    ---

    Eddie confuses Steve. Steve frustrates Eddie. They're complete opposites, which is why they're finding it so hard to navigate the tentative friendship between them, right? Right. It definitely doesn't have anything to do with the way Steve can't seem to stop staring at Eddie or the way Eddie's foot seems to find its way into his mouth every time he talks to Steve. Nope. That's definitely not the issue.

    Summary

    Nancy is pretty sure that she could talk to Jonathan about it. He knows a little something about being the black sheep, and Nancy doesn’t think he would judge her for it. But they’d only just broken up, and while it was a mutual decision and an amicable split, she doesn’t think it would be fair to turn to him so soon after for advice about the feelings she already has for someone else.

    She doesn’t have any girlfriends to talk to either. Robin is kind of the first close female friend she’s had since Barb.

    And despite this budding friendship between herself and Robin, Nancy can’t turn to Robin. She’s the type to ask a lot of questions, and she doesn’t give up easily. She’ll push until she gets the answers she’s looking for. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but Nancy isn’t so sure she’s ready for that kind of inquisition. Not about this.

    Which only leaves one person that Nancy trusts enough with something as delicate as this, one person whom she is comfortable enough to confide in:

    Steve Harrington.

    Summary

    “You’ve seriously never had your first kiss, though?”

    Eddie snorts. “Why do you sound so disbelieving? Come on, Harrington. I don’t exactly have a long line of suitors winding out my front door, vying for my hand or anything. Nobody wants to swap spit with the local freak. They might catch something.” He gives Steve a scrutinizing look. “I’m not like you, King Steve.”

    “I’m not worried about catching anything from you,” Steve says.

    Eddie tilts his head, perplexed. “Okay… thanks?”

    Steve shakes his head. “No, I mean, if no one else wants to, I will.”

    “Will what? Line up outside my door?” Eddie scoffs.

    “Kiss you,” Steve says and knocks all the air out of Eddie’s chest. “I’ll do it.”

    Eddie’s eyes have got to be as big as dinner plates as he blinks at Steve. “What?”

    Summary

    The film isn’t even on Steve’s radar at this point. He couldn’t say what’s happening anymore, but he doesn’t even care. Forget Geena Davis, forget Jeff Goldblum, Steve can’t stop thinking about Eddie Munson, right there next to him, hand inches away from his own.

    Steve’s pinky twitches out, like it’s got a mind of its own, towards Eddie’s hand. His heart is in his throat, breath caught behind it, as his pinky hovers, trembling. He could touch him. Wants to touch him. To hook his pinky over Eddie’s, curl them together, maybe even link the rest of their fingers too.

    He’s never wanted to hold somebody’s hand so bad before.

    Summary

    Jonathan would never hear the end of it if Will found out what he’s doing, so he needs to be subtle. Just enough to get Mike to treat him better. Just enough to redirect things.

    He settles on a stern, “Mike, I think we need to have a talk.”
