    “Next time, bring enough panties for the whole class,” he sniffs.

    Beverly whips hers at Richie, catching on his erection like a ring toss game.

    Summary

    "No, I would've remembered this," Richie says, folding his hand around the un-bandaged parts of Eddie's hand. The gold ring glints on his pinky.

    Eddie explains how he stabbed himself and Richie nearly dies. His laughter sounds like someone peeling out on fresh blacktop.

    "Okay, yeah, hyuck it up, you goofy bitch," Eddie says.

    "How many times is that? Four? The universe wants you to be penetrated, Eds," Richie says. "It cannot get enough of you."

    They all come in one by one, screaming and laughing, celebrating like he's fucking Frodo and he's done something for them to celebrate that he's not dead.

    Summary

    The afternoon Richie was acquitted of killing a human being, he walked with Eddie from the courthouse to his rental car. It wasn’t a nice day, but a yellow Volkswagen bug rolled past them, taking its time, probably carrying God, and Eddie punched him. He remembered. Richie wished Eddie had hit him harder, so he could remember Eddie remembering, and then he wished he weren’t so fucked in the head. 

    Eddie and Richie come of age together twice.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Eddie sometimes felt a lot like Gollum, climbing around in the caves of his mind with only his psychological wreckage for company. He remembered his old selves, and sometimes had discussions with the more human Eddie, who was named Spaghetti instead of Sméagol, and went fishing in cool clean water and was not so afraid to touch his naked knee to Richie's. But that hardly mattered. He had forgotten the taste of bread, and now he was a small thing made of ropes and garbled sounds, and he couldn’t ever be seen for who he was then, nor for who he was now. He was in some new goddamn pupal stage. He had been in pupal stages all his life.

    -

    He made a horrible wet noise, and clapped a hand over his mouth, before he remembered that nobody could hear him. The hand came away with slobber on it, but it was okay, because he was alone. He would have a good private cry, and drink too much, and fall asleep on the floor, and it would be—well, not okay, but it would be not-okay in private. One of the perks of dying alone, he supposed, and suppressed the urge to tear his face off like a scooby-doo villain. 

    -

    Horribly enough, he was a fucking person.

    Summary

    Eddie stalls out on the sidewalk and pats down his pockets. “I don’t have my wallet. My prescription, either. I must’ve left it-“ Did he leave it at the Inn? That was probably the case. Along with his cash, he had Mike’s number in there, which he would have liked to call from the bar. He can find it again in the phonebook, of course, but he’d rather not have to go on some kind of wild goose chase across town.

    Richie rolls his eyes. “Jesus, you’re a shitty date.”

     -

    Miniseries Eddie wakes up in a strange world thirty years after his second battle with It. He’s stranded from the time and the people he knew, and he needs help. Luckily he’s not the only Loser around.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There’s a little more detail every time Eddie dreams about the tree. For the longest time, he lay beneath it, waiting and watching the clouds pass by. Leaves changed and birds came and went with the change of the seasons, maybe a few dozen times. Lately, there’s a before and after to this.

    Before, his friends carry him, all locking hands to form a sling. They button his jacket and comb his hair, just so. A whiskery kiss is laid on his cheek, and then he is laid to rest beneath that tree, in the deep, safe place his friends have dug for him. It’s a blink compared to the waiting and watching.

    After, it is night for the last time, but the dark velvet of the heavens is not only above Eddie. He is in the woody, rooty arms of the tree, still, but the soil is no longer the grain and gravel of the earth. The rocks have become stars. He is carried once more, by the locked hands of the tree, his friend, through the silk of the night sky.

    Summary

    Just over a hundred miles west of the farthest point of Costa Rica, on a small cay known as Isla Nublar, a grim-faced crew gathers as a crate is lowered in front of them. It rains—on the island, on the crew, and on the growling creature inside of the crate.

    Safe in the guard tower up above, the founder of the operation watches, for a moment, before turning on his heel and reaching for the phone on the wall. “Aye,” he says, when the operator picks up, “I’d like to make contact with Dr. Hanlon in Montana, please.”
