    Summary

    Steve wakes groggily to someone poking him in the face. He slaps the hand away – tries to, but his reactions are off, and he ends up slicing a hand through the air to the left. He blinks open his eyes and groans, immediately closing them again at the sight of a fuzzy figure leaning over him.

    “Shithead,” Dustin says, but he sounds relieved.

    Summary

    Steve Harrington is totally and completely fine with being lumped into the category of “dumb jock.” He is also completely and totally fine with losing what little shred remains of his previous highschool popularity for hanging around with middle schoolers. In fact, this all makes it much easier for Steve to do what he does best. Hide. Now, people don’t question the bruises or that cold look in his eyes. Or at least that’s what Steve thought. Until some unexpected people worm their way into his heart. And maybe it’s just in time.

    Summary

    When Steve arrived at his childhood home with a gaggle of children in tow, he had expected the place to be empty. He also hadn't expected to have a heart-to-heart with Billy Hargrove by the pool over a couple of drinks the next day either, but one thing that Steve had learned over the past few years, was to always keep on your toes because you never know what Hawkins could throw at you next.

    Summary

    Billy and Max escape Neil and move to Hawkins, where Billy sets his sights on Steve Harrington.

    -

    Steve's whole body is a line of tension water dripping down his spine as he moves to get dressed. "King Steve." Billy calls just to see what reaction he will get, has seen Steve glare at Tommy numerous times over the moniker. Now is no different, he might feel bad if he didn't find the little snarl Steve lets out adorable.

    "Don't call me that." Steve hisses fangs just barely visible from where they have dropped and eyes flashing as he drags his boxers on under the towel. Billy wishes he would just drop the towel completely so he can fully enjoy the show.

    "What would you prefer I call you?" Billy steps closer licking his teeth as Steve drops the towel pulling his pants up.

    "Steve, you know my actual name by itself." Steve points out.

    "That's no fun pretty boy." Billy enjoys the flush that creeps over Steve's skin his scent spiking sweetly.

    Summary

    Two years ago, before everything, so many things, it had been him and Nancy and Tommy and Carol and Barb and beer and cigarettes and a boombox. It had been a starry night and a cloudless sky and a cut hand and then the first time he’d ever made love. Two years ago he’d have called himself sappy. He would have called himself cool. He would have called himself not a coward.

    Today, his usually empty house is filled to bursting with friends and food and a scary movie marathon and it feels like nothing’s changed since Starcourt exploded and burned down from a faulty gas line.

    Today, Steve calls himself lonely.

    Summary

    “This is a baby,” Dustin said, hoisting the car seat in the air.

    Steve gaped. “Who the fuck trusted you with a baby?”

    “They didn’t, Steven. Who the fuck would trust me with a baby? It was just here!”

    “Jesus Christ,” Steve said, snatching the seat from Dustin’s grubby fingers. “Don’t fucking shake it, you’ll hurt it.”

    “It’s obviously a wishbaby,” Dustin said. Which was, in fact, not obvious.
     

    Or, Steve finds a baby on his porch and Billy Hargrove is real fucking weird about it.

    Summary

    There's a boy in the forest.

    He's unconscious. Has been for days.

    His clothes are odd for 1987. His shoes, his shirt, his jeans. All of them scream WRONG.

    He doesn't know how he got there. He doesn't know why. What he does know is that when he wakes, he will fulfill his mission. No matter what.

    Summary

    Steve confronts Billy after a violent argument between him and Max, asks him what happened, why he and Max hate each other. Billy, worn down by life and too tired to put up his usual facade, tells him. He tells him a story about finding love, of having it torn away from him in blood and bruises by his father, of being torn away from his home and brought to a little town, of protecting his little sister from the monster around the corner, under the bed, in every shadow of their 'home', no matter how much she hates him. Billy tells him a story, and Steve, knowing what it's like to have an abusive father, Steve listens.

    Or

    Billy lets out years of pain from his father's abuse, explains why he and Max can't get along, and admits to protecting her no matter the cost. Steve listens and finds excuses to keep Billy around. Love and trust and a relationship form.

    Summary

    “The fuck do you want?”

    Up close, Billy Hargrove isn’t as monstrous as Dustin imagined.

    “I need your help.”

    Billy snorts with jagged teeth and cracked lips and breath that’s sour and hot with smoke. “Is that a fucking joke?”

    Summary

    “What did you even drink?” Billy’s teasing him, far and away more sober than Steve is.
    “Port. And a couple beers. And a lot of raspberry schnapps.” Steve’s voice sounds more gravelly than usual, he has been throwing up for the past twenty minutes at intervals.
    Billy laughs at him. “Jesus, Harrington, that’s such a-”
    “Rookie mistake. I know.” Steve leans back against the wall of the bathroom they're hiding out in. It feels cool against his head, which is so hot, he feels way too hot, and like his skin is sticky, and he can't lift his head back up to even look at Billy. And he hates it's a little that Billy’s here right now. Maybe it's a leftover need to impress Billy, maybe it's just his tendency to never want anyone to see him at less than a hundred percent.
    But maybe he likes it that Billy here. He sort of feels better because of it.
