    Summary

    The window is jerked open so suddenly that Robin stumbles backward, barely managing to catch herself before she topples off the roof entirely. Where she expected to see Steve’s head sticking out there’s a baseball bat instead, studded with nails that glitter ominously in the streetlight. But before she has time to react, the bat’s being lowered, and then Steve’s face appears behind it.

    “Jesus Christ,” he hisses at her. “What the fuck?”

    Her heart is pounding, Steve’s violent reaction having startled her fight-or-flight response into overdrive. She takes a few deep breaths to steady herself. "Hi," she says, hating how shaky her voice sounds.

    Summary

    Three days after Vecna, Robin tries to kiss Steve. Tries to be something he deserves. Someone who can fuck him, be with him. Something better, a good person like she isn't. She tries to not be fucked up. Steve doesn't let her.

     

    If only for a moment they are wild and cold, faces up to the unreflective sky, just a boy and a girl holding hands watching the stars as the wind tugs and pulls them, kindly cruel in a way that mends.

    Maybe they don’t need anyone else, she thinks, maybe they can stay there until the wind strips them to their bones. She wouldn’t mind dying if it was with Steve.

    He turns to her and she thinks he might kiss her but then he’s just holding her against his chest and it feels like such an impossibly mean thought to have about Steve, to even think that he might do that to her, that she starts crying. Sometimes she thinks she doesn’t deserve him and he doesn’t deserve how she thinks about him. He’s just so much good sometimes Robin thinks something must turn for the worst, surely King Steve isn’t all gone, surely at some point he’s going to reveal himself: he was making fun of her the whole time, trying to make her normal.

    “Love me like I love you.”

    Summary

    “Alright, listen. You want to romance Max? It’s easier said than done.” When Lucas’s face falls, Steve is quick to tack on, “But it is doable. There are steps. Six of them.” He spreads his hands theatrically, bending a little at the waist as if setting the scene.

    or: Lucas needs love advice, Dustin & Robin despair, and Steve's a regular Casanova.

    Summary

    “Everyone wants someone to love,” Nancy replied, crossing her arms. She was wearing the look that she got when she knew she was right and everyone around her was just too stubborn to admit it. “It’s okay to say it out loud. It shows how much you’ve grown as a person, Steve.”

    “I never said that I don’t want someone to love,” Steve sighed. “I said that I’m not looking right now. I’m perfectly happy with the way that things are. I’ve got you guys, I’ve got the kids, and I’ve got my job. I don’t really need more than that.”

    ~

    AKA: 5 times someone tried to help Steve find love, and 1 time he found it for himself.
