“There’s nothing cool about living in a sewer and being possessed by the thing that tried to eat you,” says Eddie.
“Exactly,” says Richie.
or: Richie saves Eddie, but dies in his stead. a month later, Eddie starts dreaming of Richie, and soon finds out that he's not quite dead yet—It's possessed him, but Richie's fighting back. he can't hold on forever, though, so the Losers, especially Eddie, race against the clock to save Richie from Its clutches. and in the meantime, Eddie has to wrestle with his feelings for his childhood best friend, awakened by Richie's last words.

The problem is that Pennywise stabbed his huge, stupid, deadly claw right through Richie and it should have been Eddie.

Despite how murky and muddy and dirty the quarry was, the warmth on his skin and the sounds of those he loved made floating all that much nicer.
Eddie was floating now, but it was nothing like the quarry.
-OR- Eddie sees Mike and Pennywise in the cistern, getting caught in the deadlights instead of Richie.
