    Summary

    Tozier reads off the matchbook with a grin. “Edward Kaspbrak, private detective. ‘Private’. What’s that mean?”

    “It means I usually like to be the one to decide when and if the police are involved.”

    The look Eddie gets back for that remark is not the smirking enjoyment he’s coming to expect from their little back and forth. Tozier’s arrogant mask falters. “Does it mean if I told you something- something that’s not hurting anyone but me- you’ll keep it to yourself?”

    Summary

    Whatever little control Richie felt he had over his own body dissolved rapidly and humiliatingly around June, which is coincidentally also when Eddie deemed it warm enough to start wearing shorts regularly. Like a bundle of kindling, Richie was consumed by ferocious, hungry heat as the days curled and blackened at the edges under the Maine sun.

    (Alternatively: A year in which Richie confronts the horrors of tenth grade and a crush on his best friend that just won't quit.)

    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

    Just as the last car is passing them, Prince Charming makes a snuffling noise and Eddie freezes, still pressed on top of him. He’s suddenly aware of every single place they’re touching, and Eddie thanks the brutal Chicago cold - there’s no way he could pop a boner when it’s this freezing. God, he hates himself.

    The man opens his eyes for a moment and looks directly into Eddie’s eyes. Eddie’s mouth hangs open. He tries to smile, but he doesn’t think he achieves it. Instead, he swallows and says:

    “Merry Christmas.”

    The guy passes back out without a word.

    Summary

    Somewhere in the back of Richie's mind, he knew he was supposed to be kissing a girl. But girls didn’t want anything to do with him. And Eddie was right here, and his best friend, and he'd rather be kissing Eddie than any girl in their class anyway. Not that he'd ever, ever admit it.
    --
    They killed the clown, survived high school, and escaped to different colleges, but the Losers still miss each other. And Richie? Richie hasn't thought about kissing Eddie in years. Canon-based college au where they don't lose their memories after leaving Derry.
