    Summary

    “Baby,” Richie’s voice unstitched with laughter. And Eddie’s skin burning up, in the palms and fingertips. Hands clasped on the steering wheel, he takes a sharp turn.

    Richie’s shoulder digs into his. G-force. And little space.

    Eddie breathes in. His chest hurts like the nonexistent airbag is already pushing into it.

    Like he’s already crashed.

    [Or, American screenwriter Richie comes to shoot a movie in late Soviet era Poland and meets Eddie K., sound technician, hobbyist car mechanic.]

    Summary

    “Okay, all right, well, I think we’re done here,” Eddie sighs, but when he glances into the rear-view mirror, he sees a smile on his face, and his cheeks are flushed. He frowns as something occurs to him. “Wait, are we? What did you call me for?”

    “You called me, Eduardo.”

    “I called you back, idiot!”

    “Yeah, yeah. I dunno, man,” Richie says easily enough. Eddie can hear his fingers rattling against some hard surface as he talks, restlessly drumming as he speaks. “I saw Stan, and suddenly I realised that I fucking missed him, and then hot on the tails of that I was like… man, do I miss Eddie, jeez! So I called. That’s all. No biggie.”

    “Oh,” Eddie breathes, and does not try to stop the pleased smile blooms with Richie’s words. “I, uh. I miss you too, jackass. God only knows why, but I do.”

    Richie groans happily. “Man, that’s the stuff! Nobody insults me like you do, Eds.”

    “Nobody deserves it like you,” Eddie grins, and Richie bursts into laughter. Eddie’s soul soars at the sound of it.

    Summary

    Eddie makes another noise, not quite a scream but not anything else either.

    Stan drops his hand.

    “Hey, Eddie,” he says. “Welcome to the peanut gallery. I wrote you a letter, but I guess you won’t get it now.”

    (Or, Eddie and Stan stick around as ghosts after they die. Unable to make themselves known to the other Losers, they have to find other ways to communicate.)

    Summary

    “Aw, now, pun’kin, did you wear them all special for lil’ ol’ me?” Richie asks. 

    “No,” Eddie says, his voice sharp with the annoyance Richie is seeking. It makes Richie grin to himself.

    “I wore them for me,” Eddie says. “But your opinion…” He clears his throat. “Matters.”
