    Summary

    “That’s the thing, Richie,” Stan implores, “you don’t have to go back. You n-n-n—come on—nuh-ever le-eh-left.”

    “The fuck’s that supposed to mean,” Richie all but explodes. “Of course I left. I’m in New York. That house isn’t even fucking standing anymore.”

    But it is,” Stan says. “It’s standing. You’re still there. You’re all still there.”

    (alternatively: Richie gets caught in the Deadlights, we all know that, but what we don’t know is what happened in them, or what happens after, when there’s a meddling ghost in the shape of his best friend on his side.)

    Summary

    The Losers took Pennywise's deal, leaving to live happy lives until old age took them back to the weeds. Bill was left alone with the clown that killed his brother, but instead of killing Bill like Georgie and all the other kids in Derry, the clown does something else entirely, something that makes Bill wish the clown had killed him instead

    Summary

    "Richie! I think I got it, man! I think I killed it for real!"

    Richie didn't answer, nor move.

    It’s alright, he tried telling himself, somehow not panicking yet– to be honest he’d done his fair share of panicking already— Richie has just been temporarily knocked out by the fall.
    He thought so until the moment he grabbed him by the shoulders and turned him around. Richie’s eyes still rolled all the way into his skull, and his nose bled upwards, because evidently gravity was a fucking opinion.

    or: Richie is still stuck in the deadlights after Eddie injures It.

    Summary

    Richie’s mind fades back, a little at a time, until he register the feel of lips against his own even before he registers the fact that the ground is shaking beneath his back. Hands are on either side of his face—familiar hands, ones he has felt countless times in the past, bigger than before, but the spark was still there, Richie still remembered these hands and who they belonged to.

    Eds is kissing you, the little voice in the back of his mind tells him—and it sounds so much like his younger self, it’s too much all at once. Really planted one on ya, why couldn’t you have done that first, huh? Showed up by little cutie Eddie, and then his younger self snorts and mutters sadly, guess I get why we never did, though.

    Summary

    "All richie could register was he was numb. His body moving on its own like a marionette dancing on its strings. His vision felt more like he was watching a video instead of his own body. Yet he still could feel the shifting of his hollow body like distant memories. Everything seemed clouded yet he could see and hear perfectly. His eyes not looking where he wished either. His mind tried to circle through ideas until it all suddenly stopped as he saw it. Through broken glass on the floor he caught a glimpse of his own face. His eyes were a sickeningly pure white."

    Short:
    Before the losers could make it to the well to get to the caves. richie is dragged away by pennywise after the confrontation with the Stan spider. Where pennywise uses the dead lights to make richie a puppet.

     

    This is inspired mostly by ava_leeigh on tik tok but also by puru4's story puppet! Honestly go check theirs out after reading mine it's amazing. (that's if you want to read mine of course :p) I'm really hoping to make this my own little version. It's my first story on this app so I hope it's OK! Leave your thoughts in the comments! I love feedback. Please don't hate though. Hope you Enjoy!

    Summary

    In reality, Richie had never intended to get close to the losers club, he didn’t intend to get close to anyone, not after what happened last time, but most things never start with a direct intention, most things happen without realization.

    Now here they were, faced directly with a ‘monster’ Richie was all to familiar with.

    Summary

    Richie goes back to dig Eddie out, Pennywise offers him something better. For a price.

    'He’d have to live with knowing that he’d left Eddie behind. He’d have to go back to California and sleep in his warm bed in his ridiculously big apartment knowing that Eddie was rotting underground, in the dark, surrounded by filth.
    “Just go, Richie. He’s dead. Just leave,” he hisses at himself.
    He doesn’t.
    He throws the car into reverse and turns back towards Derry.
    “It’s okay, Eds. I’m coming. I’ll get you out.'

    "I don-"

    "I don't wa-"

    Eddie flinched at bill tone of voice, he was scared okay. He's sorry that he didn't want to fight his childhood friend head that had spider legs pop out of it as it attacked his childhood crush.

    "Please don't be mad bill." Whimpered Eddie as quilt washed over him, "I was just scared."
    Richie wiped his face with Bev jacket as he tried composing himself, "Its alright Bill, leave Eddie alone." He shuddered as he handed Bev jacket back that was now covered in disgusting saliva, "After all I am fi-"

    Summary

    For a few seconds, the only thing he processes is the sound of his own blood rushing in his ears, growing louder and more aggressive, keeping him in a suffocating grasp, holding him up like a puppet until he wants to scream and hit and kick, help me help me help me-

     

     

     

    Then, suddenly… silence.
    (Or: what Richie really saw in the Deadlights)
