    Summary

    Steve isn’t sure what wakes him, his clock reads 8:43 which is twenty minutes before he’s supposed to be up to go and take the kids to the arcade for what must be the fourth time this week but it’s the middle of summer and everyone is back in Hawkins for the first time since the Byers left for Cali so he supposes they’re just excited to spend time together again.

    He stays laying for a moment, to see if it was anything particular. The house is as silent as it always is, his parents are rarely back anymore and the silence has become almost as comforting as it is daunting.

    Just as he’s about to decide that it wasn’t anything, there’s a crash from the kitchen that has Steve up and out of bed, grabbing his nail-covered bat and sneaking as quietly and quickly as he can towards the noise. He doesn’t know what it could be, there’s a long list of Upside Down related stuff he hopes it isn’t, it’s too early for that. He’s getting too old for that.

    He’s just shy of being seen from whoevers there in the kitchen but close enough that he can still see in, it says enough that he’s shocked to see his own mother in her own house.

    Or

    Steves dad dies and he deals with all that.

    Summary

    Scott doesn’t hesitate this time. He pulls him into his arms, and Stiles is far too exhausted to fight him. “It’s okay,” Scott says, rubbing circles on his back as Stiles lays his head on his shoulder. His voice is thick, like he’s on the edge of crying. “We're gonna figure this out, okay? Everything’s gonna be all right.”

    Stiles doesn’t need to hear his heartbeat to know it’s a lie.

    Summary

    Maybe you're young and sometimes stupid and you're as far from normal as possible.
    But you keep your window unlocked and your bedroom door open just in case your pack needs you. And you think that makes you something more than what you used to be.

    (or, Scott McCall has always been a firm believer in the idea that family has nothing to do with genetics)

    Summary

    A movement at the stairs caught Buck’s eye, and he looked past Chimney to see a girl stop hesitantly at the top of the stairs. She looked about average height, wearing jeans and solid black t-shirt under a green flannel, the top half of her hair pulled back. Her eyes moved across the loft, studying it in what looked like a weird mix of wonder and threat assessment.

    After a moment of silence as everyone became aware of her presence, she cleared her throat, her grip tightening on her bag. It kind of reminded Buck of his first day on the job, and he couldn’t help the pang of empathy that struck him. She looked so young, and he wondered if he had looked that young back then, too.

    “Hi,” she said, a tentative smile on her face as she took everyone in and stepped further into the loft. “I’m Malia Tate. New recruit.”
