    Summary

    “Why are you crying?” He repeated again, a little more firmly, but still gentle, open, completely Eddie.

    “I don’t know, Eds. Can I not cry?” Richie said, looking away, wrists still clutched in Eddie’s hands.

    “Don’t do that, Rich. You know I hate seeing you cry. I want you to talk to me, you know? I’m here for you,”

    You’re the reason i’m crying, Richie wanted to say, even though it wasn’t Eddie’s fault that Richie felt this way. Or maybe it was, or maybe it wasn’t.

    Summary

    Richie was doing fine, all things considered. Two of his best friends were dead, but he was still kicking, still somewhat functioning. He wasn’t completely ashamed of his sexuality anymore, although he’d yet to really come out. Then again, there really didn’t seem to be much of a point, considering the love of his life was dead and no one else could ever hold a candle to Eddie.

    Please read the endnotes for more in-depth trigger warnings. I wrote this when I was having a hard time and I would hate to hurt anyone. Please take care of yourselves <3

    Summary

    Getting text messages from random numbers is nothing new, getting texts from complete strangers that are already saved in your phone with shit like nicknames, birthdays and even first names filled in. That’s definitely worrying.
    Or
    The Losers all have each other's numbers saved to their phones as they leave Derry, it's just that now that they've forgotten everything. Why do they have these strangers phone numbers saved?

    Hey all! This is a collection of short (VERY short, short-enough-to-fit-in-ten-slides-on-Instagram short) one shots for Reddie Week 2020! I joined the collection late because I wasn’t aware there was one on AO3 until day three, so you’ll have to excuse me for that. Thank you to the wonderful @dibojosdelrio and @lisbetuuu for the prompts and for organizing the collection! You can also find these one shots on Instagram on my account, @rinsreddie . Thanks for reading! Feel free to check out my other (much longer, I promise) Reddie fic here on AO3. Much love!

    Summary

    "Okay, but what if I was?" All comedic implications had left his voice.

    "It doesn't matter, because you aren't."

    "You don't know that."

    "Yes, I do, I've known you a long time, I would have known. You aren't like that, Richie." Oh, but he was.

     

    Aka: Richie is a mess and comes out to Eddie, Eddie is also a mess and doesn't quite understand it. They work it out.

    Summary

    Beverly has been haunted by nightmares of people dying ever since she can remember, it seems. One night after waking from one of them again the unthinkable happens. Attempting to calm herself with a little late night t.v. she suddenly sees one of the faces from her nightmares. He's real... and every fiber of her being tells her that she has to go to him--one of those strangers that has haunted her for so long. If she doesn't try then she knows she'll see his face on a morning national news program--up-and-coming comedian Richie Tozier, dead at age 27.

    It won't be that bad, Richie whispered against the fear pounding in his ears. Just swallow the fucking bottle and it'll all go away. A part of him longed for someone who cared to stop him.

    But there was no-one.

    He drew his thumb over the worn label on the bottle.

    He opened it and let the friendly little tablets inside make a home in his trembling palm.

    He began to count them--one, two, three, four, five, six, seven--his mind paused there as though the number seven held some sort of significance to him. Except that it didn't.

    Eight, nine, ten...

    Richie continued to count.
