    Summary

    “Hey mom, I think I found something.” Susan stood up, pushing her glasses up into her hair. Max reached in the space left by the absent drawer, tugging the folder free. She straightened up, eyes wide as she read the neat handwriting on the small tab that jutted out further beyond the papers that were stuffed in it.

    William.

    “Who’s William…?” Max handed the file off, following her Mother over to that old armchair. Susan sat down, crossing her legs and quickly flicking the file open. Her glasses perched back on her nose as she scanned the first few documents. “Mom? Does Neil have like, another kid or something?” Susan shook her head, flipping a page over and reading the next.

    “Well, this changes things.”

    Summary

    "You can come back to mine if you want,” Steve whispered into the dark, feeling vulnerable in his request.

    “A pity sleepover?” Billy’s tone was harsher, he tensed up beside him, puffing up like an angry bird.

    Steve sighed and shook his head, pulling out his own pack of smokes and lighting one. The small flame lit up in between his hands, comforting his cold fingers.

    “Not everything is about pity, Hargrove.”

    “What’s it about then?” Billy turned towards him; his eyes almost hopeful, like he wanted to believe Steve.

    Summary

    They haven’t spoken since the night at the Byers.

    Since Billy beat Harrington’s pretty face in and the kids had left him on the floor of some freaky house, dosed up to hell.

    Billy sees him at school and watches the bruises fade from his pale skin, tries to ignore Steve the best he can. It's what he's supposed to do, what he told Max he'd do. So he watches the colors of Steve’s face come back to normal. Watches the light in his eyes sort of fade.

    Billy ignores Steve Harrington until he can’t anymore.

    Because Steve doesn’t look good, and Billy was never able to leave a scab alone.

    or,

    Billy sees Steve Harrington sitting alone at lunch and just can't help himself from getting involved. He just needs to keep reminding himself that he’s not interested in Harrington - he’s not. (He is.)

    Summary

    After an altercation leaves Steve teetering on the edge of a drop, he starts to question his Omega status. Though, a rumour has it that a creature is lurking in the woods of the Loc Nora neighbourhood snags Steve’s attention.

    Meanwhile over on Cherry lane, the Hargrove Mayfield family are under the investigation of Hawkins PD for the disappearance of Billy Hargrove. Max and The Party quickly take matters into their own hands, which of course is just another thing he would have to jam into what Robin so sheepishly during a conversation had called his “Pandora’s box of things Steve can’t handle”.

    Summary

    Steve carefully stepped over the ooze slathered across the floor, creeping up to the wall separating the living room from the kitchen. The golden light from the small bulb spilled out onto a small portion of the tiled floor of the dining room and kitchen, softly illuminating the surrounding area in an eerie glow. He peeked around the corner in order to peer into the kitchen and his eyebrows furrowed in confusion upon seeing the absolute mess of the place.

    His various plastic magnets were scattered across the floor, some cracked and in pieces as if they’d been stepped on. Wrappers and shredded tupperware were strewn about with half-eaten and abandoned scraps of food left haphazardly everywhere. He was so furious at the sight of the absolute disaster he almost missed the figure rummaging about his fridge. Examining the little bit of the silhouette he could see, he stared wide-eyed at the gap between the bare fridge door and the floor, where he could see a pair of slimy feet.

    Summary

    Billy doesn’t know why he turns his Camaro into a u-turn that sends his suspension squealing into the rainy night. He isn’t sure why he sees a lumpy shadow hunched over on the side of a brick wall and thinks— let me stop. But he feels why. He feels it in his gut, some deep pulling thing. Feels like a red thread tied around his intestine and pulling it taught. Through his belly button and tight towards the soggy shape.

    Summary

    “I’m fucking tired.” He whined. “My roommate keeps getting home in the middle of the night and having very loud and very drunk sex while I’m trying to sleep.”

    “Poor, pretty boy.” Billy cooed gently, and it didn’t even sound that taunting this time. Maybe Steve was losing his mind to lack of sleep. “How ever will you stay so pretty if you don’t get your beauty rest? Come, lay down.” He patted the bed behind him.

    Steve knew that Billy was kidding, because that’s what Billy did. He joked and poked and prodded, playfully or maliciously, depending on his mood. But Steve was tired, okay? And Billy was being nice – well, as nice as Billy could be.

    See, the thing is, Steve’s just happy that he made it to college and that some of his friends ended up there with him. Somehow “friends” now also included Billy Hargrove? How that happened, Steve would never really understand. But that didn’t stop him from desperately wanting Billy to kiss him again.

    or,

    Steve’s just trying his best to be normal while ignoring Robin and Heather’s meddling, pretending half the school wasn’t obsessed with his dick, and doing everything in his power to ignore his huge crush on Billy Hargrove.

    Summary

    “We all need someone” Robin’s words echo through the room. Billy suddenly feels nervous, maybe its because of the way she had looked him dead in the eyes as she spoke. Billy draws his eyes away and to the floor, but he could still feel her eyes on him. She speaks again and Billy's chest tightens.

    "Maybe. Just maybe, you need Steve."

     

    or, a six part story of love and boys finding out that the best way to deal with all the terror is to be with one another.

    Summary

    He could imagine Harrington squirming against him for quite different reasons, but kept those images to himself, tucked them away for later use when he was alone in his room. The grunts, the wriggles, the feeling of the length of his body - the warmth, the weight, the tone of his muscle… God, Steve’s body was incredible.

    Billy couldn’t help but thrust his hips a little against Steve though he tried to hide it.

    But, when Harrington turned his head, face flushed pink, Billy smelled it. That slight sugary sweetness in Harrington’s scent.

    If Billy was scenting correctly, which he always did, there was a ripple of desire threaded through Steve’s faint smell. Not the clean beta scent, but sweet like an omega. All salted caramel and apple, warm and sweet and a little tangy.
