    What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

    There were hundreds and thousands of answers to this paradox, as Ben recalled, but none of them prepared him to be the unstoppable force saving the life of the immovable object that was Richie Tozier.

    Summary

    Richie was sitting in a chair in front of a dressing table, looking into the lit-up mirror while he sipped a glass of amber bourbon. He looked up when Eddie walked in and then there were no words; neither of them had thought this far ahead. Eddie stood awkwardly in the open door, feeling very much like he was still waiting for the big prank to be revealed, for there to be machinations behind all of this that he couldn’t understand.
    “Hey, Trashmouth,” he said, eventually.
    “Hey, Eds,” Richie said.
    “You know I always hated being called that,” Eddie said.
    “Not when it’s me.”

    An AU in which Richie and Eddie meet before Mike calls them all back to Derry, the affair that follows, and the consequences both of them want to ignore.

    Summary

    The only problem with facing down a killer clown and coming to terms with your sexuality and the intense crush you've harbored on your best friend unknowingly for the past twenty-seven years is no one will accept that. The other problem on Richie's plate is knowing that he wants to share every stupid little thing Eddie does with the world-- which requires coming out.

    Summary

    "Listen, my life in New York is far from perfect, I'm aware of it," Eddie starts, and Richie looks down to where Eddie's hand is resting on the sheets before he can stop himself, to the dull gleam of his wedding band, "but I'm doing fine there, I'm doing okay, it's a life. What this is— this is regurgitating stuff I got over long ago, things I've moved past. There is no use in dredging any of that up. I don't need this shit messing me up in the head."

    And Richie gets it, because he's been back home for less than 24 hours and it’s already been like going through a marathon of a midlife crisis. But he's back, lying here in Derry, with his first and oldest and bestest friend in the world, both of them half paralyzed with fear, trying to bite back the urge to grasp for him across the sheets. Good and bad, old and new.

    The one advantage of the clown, Richie thinks, is that at least there's a concrete way to deal with it.

    Richie Tozier gets his heart broken, and then some.
