    Summary

    Billy’s honestly a little upset about it, but maybe Joyce Byers isn’t as crazy as everyone says.

    He’s only known her for about 2 hours now and he’s mostly certain the woman is just a typical mother. He was kind of looking forward to the drugged out mad-woman everyone painted her to be. Would have made the evening a whole lot more interesting.

    ~~~~

    Or the one where Billy just got adopted by Hop less than a year ago and now has to deal with the fact that Hop is falling in love with Joyce and is trying to mend their weird little family with the Byers. AKA: Joyce becomes Billy's mom and Billy struggles real hard with it

    Summary

    Pent up aggression and a lack of release lead to increased tension between the top two jocks of Hawkin’s High. Steve hit Billy, or did Billy hit first? Either way, it happened in the wrong place and at the worst time. The fight landed the boys in a paired assignment as punishment. They were meant to work out their issues with one another by graduation or else they’d be stuck together all summer long in even more strict circumstances.

    Summary

    It’s an understood thing, that one’s wings change over one’s lifetime. Molting and puberty, and all that.

    But then Billy Hargrove walked into Hawkins with the largest wings any small town teen had ever seen. Bigger than most of the adults’ wings too. And in a land of pubescent snobs where size means a bit too much, the Hargrove kid just became the size king.

    What does it mean, then, after Steve emerges from the demodog tunnels, and his wings are beyond repair?

    Summary

    Mother's Day is a fun celebration for most people on Earth, but not so much for the kids who haven't seen their mother in 7 years. Billy Hargrove knows the feeling all too well, he has to face it every single year with his deadbeat dad who doesn't hold the same sorrowful sentiment that he does.

    Gotta let it out somehow.

    or: Billy Hargrove misses his mother on Mother's Day.

    Summary

    If someone had come up to Billy when he first swung his legs out of the Camaro, in front of the high school on his first day in Hawkins and pointed at Steve, Billy would have pissed himself laughing.

    Billy decides to take a leap and act on his feelings for Stevie, though neither are virgins. Both can't help fumbling and acting like morons. But they can't stop smiling either

    Summary

    The new state wide juvenile program was stupid in Hopper’s opinion, he wouldn’t have cared if someone else at the station was stuck with Hargrove. But of course it was him, it’s not like he has another kid that needs a lot of attention already. So here he is, driving home with an incapacitated Billy in his backseat, about to give him a mandatory restart.

     

    Or, the government is making Hop be Billy’s caregiver.

    Summary

    He looks down at the blood on his hands and on the floor and wonders why the memory hasn’t broken yet, why he isn’t back in Starcourt mall with control of his body again, wonders if he's even still alive at all. Is this hell then? Or perhaps purgatory? It certainly isn’t heaven, that’s for sure. None of this makes any sense…but then what's new—nothing in Billy’s life makes sense anymore.

    Billy laughs then, loud and long and unhinged. It's the only sound in the whole house, and it bounces off the walls like a fucked up echo, like the world is laughing with him.

    “Jesus christ you’re insane…” It’s Max’s voice and it’s shaking. It only makes Billy laugh harder, because Max has it all wrong. Billy isn’t crazy, it’s the rest of the world that’s insane.

    --

    Billy dies a hero of sorts. He wakes up back in his bed on Saturday morning, the third of November, 1984...nearly nine months earlier.

    Summary

    The ghost of Billy Hargrove leaned in the open window of Steve’s car with that trademark smirk and, honestly, Steve was kind of impressed by how detailed his own hallucination could be.
    “Wanna fuc-What the shit? HARRINGTON?”
    They blinked at one another for about ten seconds before Steve’s brain finally managed to fire off a thought.
    “You’re real?”
    Steve couldn’t stop the words from spilling out of his mouth, his own stupidity a constant echo in his empty head. Billy’s face reflected his thoughts as he yanked on the door handle until Steve reached over to hit the lock with shock-numb fingers.
    “Real fucking freezing. Let me in, pencil dick.”

    Or: The Pretty Woman AU literally nobody asked for.

    Summary

    “Help me,” Billy rasps out, his voice dry as a desert but cracking with saliva that pools but doesn’t hydrate. His throat tightens even as he says it, the thing inside him roiling at the thought that it might be pushed out. And Billy wants to say more, wants to warn Steve about the monster inside him, the heat, the cold, but he doesn’t know how he’d do that even if he was capable of stringing sentences together right now.

    ---

    AKA the AU where Steve notices Billy’s sweating and zoning out real bad at the pool and, even though they're not really even friends, decides to try and help. First step, get him out of the heat.

    Summary

    The first thing Susan sees of her is a cigarette held delicately out through the window, between fingers with painted red nails. Then she steps out, and her hair is long and wavy and blonde and beautiful. She’s dressed in slick black slacks and a blouse, a glittering medallion around her neck, her lips red like her nails and her eyes blue like the California ocean. There is no doubt that this is Billy’s mother. Susan’s only seen one picture of her, and it was quickly hidden by Billy when they were moving to Hawkins.

    “Susan?” she says, and god, even her voice sounds like bells. Like a melody. A California girl like no other.

    Summary

    Life is good. Better. Fine. Steve is living with Robin, and she's going to leave for college in a year, but it's okay. He'll have the kids. And then he'll have...what will he have?

    He'll have Billy. He'll have California. And he'll still have Robin. He always will.

    Billy becomes Max's legal guardian and redeems himself. Steve finds that very attractive.

    In an alternate universe where the fantastical elements of the Upside-Down never happened and it was just a mind control study that ruthlessly kidnapped and experimented on people.

    Summary

    Steve brings the tube to his lips and laughs a little as he flips the visor down, finding his reflection in the dingy mirror. The lipstick goes on nice and smooth. It feels sticky. He smacks his lip like he saw Nancy do the few times she put on makeup in the morning and feels sad for a reason he doesn’t want to think about.

    He holds it out to Billy. Billy, who accepts it with wide eyes and parted lips.

    Steve tilts his head, trying for shy. “How do I look?”

    Billy hums. Plucks the lipstick from his fingers and drops it back in the box. “You’re higher than I thought.”

    “This stuff for Max?” he asks, replacing the lid before Billy takes the whole thing from him. His knuckles go white against it. “Billy?”

    He’s quiet.

    Summary

    chapter 1
    Steve doesn't know why he agreed to this... oh, right, because he's a sucker. He's a sucker who agreed to try and reach out to Billy Hargrove, of all people, and do... something. Either way things did not end up going how he planned. He figured he'd end up with some bruises. He just never expected those bruises to be on his lips and on his hips. And he certainly didn't expect he'd be left wanting more.

    chapter 2
    Weeks later Billy shows up at Steve's house, battered and bleeding.
