    Summary

    Richie Tozier suffers.
    Too scared to let anybody know, too scared to face the tsunami of chaos inside of him which towers over him like a big shadow.
    He only ever runs away. Keeps it a secret. Bottled up.
    He thinks nobody notices his tired eyes, his red, scratched open knuckles, the bruises he wears to school every now and then.
    But he is not unnoticed.
    Because,
    Eddie Kaspbrak does. He does notice it.
    The boy who means the world to him. The only person who could possibly save his heart from rotting.
    And when Richie thinks he's all alone with his cigarette, suffering in silence while nobody notices, Eddie is there.
    And he makes a promise.

    Or, in which Richie is depressed and too scared to tell anybody until the surface he tries to keep up, cracks and he breaks down.
    In which Eddie is his life saver, his only hope.

    Summary

    He can’t move. He opens his mouth to speak, and it is silent. Everything is numb, and the only thing he can feel is metal on his tongue. It’s blood, definitely blood. So much blood. It clogs his throat, gets behind his teeth, fills his lungs and nose. His insides thaw against the warm liquid, and he wants to gag.

    He can’t breathe.

    He can’t breathe.

    He can’t—

    ○○○○○○○

    You can read it as a standalone just to note - the universe is a roles reversal where Richie saved Eddie and got stabbed instead, died but then got resurrected and now has a badass scar.

    Summary

    "Oh my god," said Eddie. "Fine. Thank you, Richie, for setting my arm that one time when we almost got murdered by a demon clown anyway. I admit that you somehow managed to do it more or less correctly, probably by accident. Thank you also for not stitching up the stab-hole in my cheek, because I would rather have it heal as a fucking hole than let you near my face with a sharp needle. I'll go to the ER when we're done with this bullshit."

    Richie chuckled. "I'll take you."

    "Fucking right, you will," said Eddie.

    ***

    Missing scenes from IT Chapter Two, covering some of what Richie got up to when he wasn't onscreen and adding some of that character development they must have cut for time, and a second chapter containing the highly questionable stand-up comedy show Richie found himself performing three weeks after leaving Derry.

    Summary

    “It’s hard to stay away from him when it’s the only thing that keeps him stable.
    Everybody seems to have settled back into life so easily. Ben and Beverly are sharing a room now, did you know? Mike’s already booked his flights to Florida and Bill’s catching the bus to the airport at noon tomorrow.
    Richie’s just floating now, tour postponed and agent fucking pissed at him — and floating? Probably not the best word to use right now, but fuck you, is what Richie says to that, he’s reclaiming it. That’s right, Richie’s reclaiming the word floating like it’s the word queer or something, and fuck you, he can say that too.”

    Richie can’t forget what he saw in the deadlights, and the echo of Eddie’s potential dying words only seems to quieten whenever Richie’s as close to him as possible.
