    Summary

    Billy's got a good feeling about tonight; he's going to a party, he looks great, and Steve's going to be there.

    Of course, that's when Susan knocks on his door and asks him to pick Max up. Everything kinda goes to shit from there.

    (It does turn out pretty okay, though, by the end of it.)

    Summary

    ‘We’re good together,’ Harrington says to the darkness above. Not a question. Matter of fact. He turns to Billy, a smile sweet enough to make Billy want to do something reckless. Something stupid. ‘I’m telling you, heartbreaker. We’re gonna be unstoppable.’

    Billy wants to ask. If he means tomorrow. If he means just for the game.

    Wants to ask if he means forever.

    He’s never wanted anyone to mean forever before.

    or; falling (in love), the hard way

    Summary

    In the wake of the Demogorgon, Steve is absolutely normal, relaxed, and fine in every way, though he has started keeping track of actions in his life a responsible adult would probably kill him for. One of those recurring actions is letting Billy Hargrove take over the corner of his couch.

    'By the time they were halfway to Steve’s house, Billy’d stopped yelling. Occasionally there’d be another kick. By the time Steve pulled in the garage, he was worried enough about exhaust fumes as a new method of involuntary manslaughter he ran right around and banged on the trunk about six times. “Hargrove! William Whatever Hargrove, you answer me, say you’re alive,” he leaned against it, panting, feeling like he’d aged sixty years in body and vocabulary. The trunk thumped back, and Steve slid down to sit against it, reminding himself to breathe, which was apparently something he did now. He’d probably fail his remaining classes, trying to study while remembering to breathe. How would he hold down a job? He’d show up for the interview and have to say “I’m Steve Harrington, and sometimes I forget to breathe.”'

    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.
