    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.”
    --
    Pre-chapter two, Eddie and Richie meet and don't remember each other, but have an instant connection anyway...

    Summary

    He opens his mouth to speak again, and this time Richie doesn’t beat him to it. He’s expecting himself to say something like ‘no, nothing, I’m good’ or ‘I just needed to talk to a friend’ or even something more alarmingly honest like ‘I woke up and I really just wanted to hear your voice’.

    Instead, he says: “I think I need to get out of New York.”

    He realises immediately that he means it; that it’s the truth. The revelation drops like a stone between them in the ensuing silence, laden with honesty. 

    - - -

    Or the one where Eddie returns to New York after Derry but doesn't stay, and Richie deals with the consequences of living with the person he secretly loves.

    Summary

    In which Patty loves Stan and will not let him face It alone, Richie has to remember everything he loved and lost, Eddie still thinks he can keep himself under control, and Bev remembers she has people she can trust. By the end, Patty learns she's not alone either, Richie starts to find himself, Eddie realizes he needs therapy, and Bev fixes her sink.

    Mostly a movie canon reimagining focused on the girls and gays. Or, maybe if Stephen King didn't fear and despise women, everyone could've lived and we could've gotten a thematically satisfying ending.

    Summary

    He’s walking near the river, behind the industrial looking warehouse that houses the art studios. “You’re not going to jump are you?” Someone shouts at him. The guy is sitting on the back steps, ridiculous legs practically folded in half with how long they are, knees up to his chest. He’s got wild black curls and giant black glasses, the plastic frames glinting under the overhang lights, and he points at Eddie with his cigarette. “It’s not worth it, there’s— I’m sure you have things in the future that you’re looking forward to, right?”

    Eddie blinks, wrapping his arms around himself, like the wool of his coat will protect him from whatever the hell is happening, “I’m not going to jump. Why would I jump?” He has to yell just to reach him.

    Eddie meets an art student that makes him want to be loudly in love.
