    Summary

    That night, 1984

    Steve sits at the kitchen table, a pack of frozen carrots wrapped in a tea towel against his swollen purple face. "I'm fine," he says. It’s over. They fought the monsters, and they won. Now he can rest.

    Except in real life, the credits don't roll, and they don't get to skip ahead to Christmas.

    Summary

    Billy and Max are runaways. For three years, they have been running from place to place on the lam from their past. Unfortunately, the present has other plans for their future. When they run to Hawkins, they find a new home with new friends, new loves, and a new life. A life that completes them.

    But the past has a way of catching up to you.

    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

    Mentions of past child abuse. Occasional: manhandling, mild slurs. ***WARNING: CH 25 "Goober" Contains Graphic Scenes of Abuse***

    Ch 1 - 2 years after S2. Susan & Neil gone, Max & Billy on their own with the help of Hopper. Very long - was originally stand alone.

    Ch 2 - 8 1 year after Ch 1. Max & Billy working things out. Steve introduces Billy to monster hunting. Max pushes him to embrace his sexuality, but it's slow & relatively tame (because 80s & writing graphic sex isn't my thing). Hawkins gang present & active.

    Ch 9 - epilogue. Max's high school graduation. Billy sucks at emotions. Steve is a champ. Fluffy ending.

    ***This is the end of the completed story. The following Chapters are add ons & requests:

    High School Max (aka really angsty): Ch 11 - 18
    College Max: Ch 19 - 21

    Summary

    After Graduation of '85, Steve Harrington goes missing. This time it's not the Upside Down. Hawkins thinks it's a lost cause, like Barb. The Harringtons really don't care about the matter. But Steve's friends do.

    When they find him again, he's not the same as he once was. Yet that's only a drop in the pond compared to what he's been through...

    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

    Billy doesn't die in Starcourt. Instead he wakes up a month later in hospital with his little sister holding his hand and a future he thought he'd lost in front of him.
    Basically the post season 3 fix it we all need

    Harringrove... eventually ;)

    I am terrible at summaries but I'm super proud of this fic so I hope you like it!

    Rated teen and up because it's mostly fine for everyone but there are a few chapters including smut as well as occasional violence between Neil and Billy.

    Please don't repost my fics elsewhere! I know I've given permission before to do so but unless I've given you specifically permission please don't! I am really glad you like my work but please don't repost it!

    Summary

    The slap echoed throughout the Hargrove's little house. Everyone waited for someone to move.
    Max didn't turn her head back. Susan's eyes were wide and watery. She looked back down at her plate. Seeing the lack of Susan's reaction, Neil stood up and pulled his fist back. Neil was ready to make sure his lesson stuck with Max.

    Billy knew better than to get in Neil's way. But Max was just a kid, she hadn't known better. Billy jumped up from his chair and grabbed Neil's fist.

    When Neil dragged Billy out of the house, he brought a shovel.

    Or the time where Steve and Hopper made sure Neil would never hurt anyone ever again.

    Summary

    "Geez Harrington, how much did you drink," Billy breathlessly whispered into the space between their faces. A space Steve had noticed getting smaller despite Billy's protest. 

    "Enough to notice your pretty blue eyes and that sexy tan you are showing off in that sinful shirt," Steve groaned looking up at Billy with eyes that could only be described as sultry.

    Summary

    "What's your name?"

    "My name?" Billy hisses. "Fuck that, who the hell are you?"

    The boy with a face that's way too pretty shrugs. Pops a maraschino cherry into his mouth. There's whipped cream smudged above his lip that makes Billy want to do filthy things.

    "My name is Seven." He nudges his empty glass forward. "Can I have another strawberry milkshake?"

    Summary

    Summary

    Billy spends three days waiting for Steve to make it easy for him.

    Because Harrington's a home owner and there's always something, right? A problem he needs help with; a leaky pipe that needs fixed, a cup of sugar for a recipe that he didn't account for, ghosts in the attic. Typical HOA bullshit.

    So he brings up flowers again, because.

    Fuck it--maybe he's wanted to see Steve behind a bouquet of Lilies of the Valley for months now.

    (or) winter is not a season, it's an occupation.

    Summary

    “Just because you’re back doesn’t mean you get to control my life!” She hisses.

    “That’s funny,” he chuckles, “cause I’m pretty sure Susan begged me to come back here because she couldn’t control you herself anymore.”

    “She only asked you to because she’s scared that I’m becoming just like you.”

    Billy gives her a wicked grin, though she can see the bitterness in it. She wants to wipe it off his stupid face.

    “Hate to break it to you, shithead,” he says with slight amusement. “But have you taken a look in the mirror lately? You are exactly like me.”

     Or

    Max is on a downward spiral after dealing with Neil’s abuse for the past 3 years. Billy’s learning to deal with his own baggage and trauma that he thought he left behind for good, while also attempting to save the little sister who he made the mistake of leaving behind the summer after he graduated.

    And then there’s Steve fucking Harrington, who won’t get the hell out of his head.

    Summary

    “Of course Steve was looking at me,” Billy sighed, answering Max’s comment. “We were talking.”

    “I didn’t say he was looking, I said he was staring,” Max said smugly. She leaned back in her seat with a satisfied sort of air, like she was settling in to tell him all the ways she knew she was right. “You were looking out at Mrs. Dowell’s car when she drove by, and probably saying something stupid, based on the look on your face, and Steve was looking at you with hearts in his eyes. It was gross. But also really sweet. Why aren’t you guys sucking face yet?”

    Billy tossed her a suspicious glare. “Have you been talking with Robin?” he demanded.

    “I haven’t even met her yet,” Max reminded him. “But I think we would get along great.”

    Billy shuddered at the thought of the two of them together, probably ganging up on him to try wreaking all kinds of havoc. It would be a nightmare.
