    Summary

    “Don’t mind me. I’m just hamming it up.” He holds up the lunch meat and displays it like Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune before saying, “Okay, I get it. You think I’m just milking it for attention.”

    Eddie lets out a thinly veiled snort. He shakes his head and finally looks down to his shoes, trying his best to hide his smile. Was this guy for real?

    “Ooh. Was that a laugh I heard? Are my jokes ap-peel-ing to you?” He pauses to use the scale to weigh the bananas. He looks up at Eddie to ridiculously wiggle his eyebrows.

    Eddie finally cracks at that, a full laugh, and concedes, “You’re quick on your feet. Definitely less cringey than I thought this would be.”

    “I’ll count that as a win. Feel free to join in!” The cashier slides the can of Campbell’s noodle soup across the scanner. “Don’t be chicken.”

     

    Or, Richie works as a grocery store cashier who constantly forgets to wear his name tag and can’t stop serving up puns, but Eddie is kinda into it.

    Summary

    When Richie sits down beside Eddie at their company's First Aid course, he thinks, oh, he's a little cute. Cute in the way a forty year old man can be, which turns out to be a lot. Probably not that hot, but hot in the kind of way someone is when you've known them for years and years, when you’ve kind of forgotten what they look like because they’re just them, you know?

    Eddie is a forty year old man whose wife is his best friend (which probably wouldn’t be so bad if she weren’t also his only friend), so he’s just excited he’s found someone new to hang out with. But when Myra suggests that maybe Richie doesn’t want to be just friends, he finds himself

    (confused scared happy what the fuck)

    Summary

    “You can wear one of my shirts, they should fit. You’re small enough anyway,” he says, and then his mouth snaps shut and his cheeks burn as if they are kids in a hammock again and he just said something he shouldn’t have. Well, he shouldn’t have said it anyway, but he’s 40 now so he really should’ve known better.

    Summary

    It's the summer before college, and Richie Tozier is prepared for approximately nothing to change. The club works at a Renaissance Faire, and somehow in between the turkey legs, marathons of Super Smash brothers and cheap beer, some of them have time to fall in love.

    the best teen losers fic period! the characterizations in this are fine art, seriously love how we see the perspectives of all of the losers. their friendship in this is so golden - and it's wonderful to read both and ups and downs of all their relationships. this whole universe has become a fourth source of canon for me! please read! <3
