    Summary

    Over the tannoy, an announcement. Something about a gate change for a Delta Airline flight. Nothing important. Pulled out of this moment of pure focus, Eddie falters and loses any semblance of the bravery Richie so passionately ascribed him in the sewers.

    He stabs the cuttlefish with one chopstick and shoves it into his mouth.

    Maybe he should have written Richie a fucking letter. It would have been easy enough to slip that into his jacket pocket when he isn't looking, or at least easier than having to look him in the eyes over plates of sushi and say, Hey, bro, I'm in love with you.

    He probably shouldn't call him bro while he says it.

    "Nothing," he says, feeling like an idiot. "Never mind."

     

    OR:
    Eighteen months after not dying in the sewers underneath Derry, Eddie tries to tell Richie how he feels.

    Summary

    “I have to tell you something.” Richie says it quick and fast, all in one burst, not entirely sure what he’s going to say, but knowing he’s got to get it out fast. “I—“

    I carved our names into the kissing bridge three weeks ago, he thinks.

    “I never actually fucked your mother,” he says instead.

    (Or, Bev and Bill aren’t the only ones who kiss the day they swear the oath.)

    Summary

    Eddie shook his head, lips quirking upwards in a confused half-smile that Richie was immediately drawn to. “You seem stupid familiar,” he said with a laugh.

    “I don’t think we know each other,” Richie replied, then added, like the moron he was, “I’d remember you.”

    This guy wasn’t the sort you forgot.

    Or, the one where it's 1998 and Richie sits down at the bar next to an asshole with a Palm Pilot.

    Summary

    He doesn’t know if he’ll like kissing Richie. A part of him is assuming not, based on the experiences he’s had for - oh, just the entirety of his adult life - but he at least wants to try.

    Richie is looking at him now, expression expectant. Waiting for him to say something, he realises, because he’s been staring at the table and mulling over his own thoughts for too long. He can see the return of the nervousness in the slope of Richie’s shoulders and instantly wants to take it away again.

    “I think that we should kiss,” he says boldly, stomach twisting in the same way that he imagines falling from a great height would feel. Invigorating. Terrifying. “I want to try.”

    “You wanna - yeah. Uh, yeah, we can do that,” Richie swallows audibly. Eddie tracks the movement of his throat, mouth drying in an instant.

    It’s this - these moments - where he suspects that, actually, he might like kissing Richie. He might like kissing Richie a lot.

    Or, the Kissing Fic.

    Summary

    Please read the tags!!

    Richie tells Eddie that he's HIV+. Eddie is scared and terrified, at first. Later that fear twists itself into desire. It's a way to overcome everything he had been taught growing up, right? Kinks are a safe way to explore fears, right? There's nothing wrong with just a little fantasy about your husband giving you HIV as long as it doesn't actually happen...right?
