    Summary

    Richie wrinkles his nose at the grocery list filled with things like eggs, bread, and dish soap. “Okay. But only because I love you.”
    Eddie grins brightly, walking away with the cart. “Thank you, Richie! Can you grab us some onions?”
    Richie loves this ‘us’ business. The ‘we’ of it all. Gets his chest all fizzy like an old fashioned soda pop.
    --
    After a long, twisting road, Richie and Eddie are happily a couple. And living together for the summer between second and third year of college! An extended series of vignettes as they navigate their new relationship.

    Summary

    Jimmy: Now, you’ve both provided the truth in the envelope for us, so no complaining if you end up revealing something that should have remained a dark secret forever.
    Richie: No chance. Edward Spaghedward knows everything there is to know about me, don’t you? I’d never hide a thing.
    Eddie: Oh, so we’re not counting last week, when you hid our credit card statement down the back of the couch so that I wouldn’t find out you spent a stupid amount of money on a light-up pool table?

    Richie makes a press appearance on The Tonight Show to promote his forthcoming sophomore comedy special. His Twitter celebrity boyfriend makes a surprise appearance. Late night TV will do just about anything for the views. Eddie won't.

    Summary

    He wants to talk. He does. But his body is thrumming to the beat of the words I love you and he sees the words from his phone screen every time his eyes close. The words are on the tip of his tongue ready to spill over again and again, to tell Richie a thousand times, an apology for the time he has wasted and a prayer for the future. Mostly, however, he wants to fuck him on the couch.

    A companion fic for the Derry Thrift SMAU, between updates 349 and 350.

    Summary

    “I fucking- uhh!! Time is frozen!” Richie shouts, pointing to Derry at large and waving his hands at the sky. There are unfalling leaves and cars seemingly parked in the middle of an intersection just a few blocks down, and a formation of birds stuck overhead. Plus! Eddie was just inside, he must have seen Ben and Bill to get out here. “How the fuck are you moving around right now!?”

    Eddie does not take Richie’s invitation to look around at the surreality of their surroundings. He squints at Richie like he has just told a particularly obvious and childish lie. “Because I’m the one who froze it?”

    Summary

    Richie grabs the edge of the polaroid and slides it out from underneath the comic books. It’s a picture of a group of kids, all sitting on a porch in someone’s backyard. He recognizes his tween self pretty quickly — stupid hair, enormous glasses that made him look constantly bug-eyed. He’s really hamming it up for the camera, grinning with his arm slung around some dark-haired kid with a cast on his arm. He can’t remember who the kid is, who any of these kids are, but the way they’re all huddled together and smiling like they really give a shit about each other… he doesn’t remember ever having friends like this.

    “Who the fuck are you,” he whispers at the kids in the picture. He flips it over, and sees his own childish chicken-scratch handwriting on the back.

    Bill, Bev, Ben, Eddie, ME!, Stan, & Mike. September 1989!

    --

    Or, 25-year-old Richie Tozier doesn't know why he can't remember his childhood, or why he has nightmares about yellow eyes looming in the dark. Then he finds an old photo of friends he can't remember, and things start to change. A "what if Richie and Eddie found each other again during the 27 years" fic.
