    Summary

    Eddie, for obvious reasons, is a clementine. This is the one he’s thought most about—tiny, adorable, obviously. Kind of hard and annoying to open when you first give it a try, but easier each time you do it. Some people (some! people!) might think it’s gross and weird, but Richie likes the yellow-tinged fingers that come with the peeling. A fruit that leaves a mark. He also likes the stringy bits—again! Maybe a bit weird, maybe a bit gross, maybe a bit off-putting, and most definitely not everyone’s thing, but. A part of the whole that Richie has found himself terminally obsessed with. It’s fine, he just really likes clementines right now. He might even say that he loves them.

    (In which Richie has a month long breakdown over fruit; fruit is just a dumb, thinly veiled metaphor for Eddie; and everyone else thinks they’re already a thing.)

    Summary

    “What’s that mean?” asks six-year-old Richie.

    “It means your daddy and I love each other very much,” answers Maggie Tozier off-screen, patient and sweet just like always. “It means we made a promise to each other to be together forever no matter what.”

    “Whoa, forever?” Richie echoes.

    “Uh-huh,” Maggie hums.

    “No matter what?”

    “That's right."

    “Well then, I wanna marry Eddie,” Richie decides. He’s got that look on his face that he gets when there’s no way he’ll be told no. He’s watching his mom with determined eyes, waiting for her reaction, but then she laughs, surprised and quiet and Richie grins back.

    “Shouldn’t you ask him, first?”

    “Oh!”

    Summary

    “So Eddie, what brings you to the bar tonight?" Richie asked. "Gonna rebound from the divorce? Pick up a hot young twenty-something to feel young again?”
    “Fuck you,” Eddie said, jutting his chin forward. “What a terrible way to ruin the mood.”
    “I’m sorry, all my moods are poorly cultivated. What mood were you looking for?”
    A nervous lump grew in Eddie's throat. He threw back his drink to get rid of it.
    Hand wrapped around the glass he’d just slammed back onto the bar, he said, “The mood that gets me leaving with a schlubby forty-something.”
