    Summary

    That night, 1984

    Steve sits at the kitchen table, a pack of frozen carrots wrapped in a tea towel against his swollen purple face. "I'm fine," he says. It’s over. They fought the monsters, and they won. Now he can rest.

    Except in real life, the credits don't roll, and they don't get to skip ahead to Christmas.

    Summary

    “So, what do you think… I mean there aren’t many things that could do… that.” There was something about the scar, it felt… Steve wasn’t sure what to call it. Bad, didn’t feel like it cut it. It was if there was something inherently evil about the scar and whatever had happened to leave it there. There was a time in Steve’s life that he would have scoffed at the thought.

    Not anymore.

    “You know Steve, this probably means your future wife only has one boob.” Dustin managed to get out around the giant shit eating grin plastered across his face. “Like some weird cyclops wife only with tits.”

    There was a beat where no one spoke, then, “Jesus Christ, Henderson.” Steve groaned, “Are you fucking kidding me?”

    -

    Steve Harrington is doing his best to move on with his life post Starcourt Mall Incident™. He’s working his ass off at Family Video, trying to keep up with a new apartment, and putting in the work to earn a Babysitter Of The Year award apparently.

    But then Billy fucking Hargrove returns from the dead, and Steve wakes up with a scar that looks like someone tried to run his chest through a meat grinder.

    Or the post-season three soulmate au no one asked for.

    Summary

    “God, shut up for a minute,” Steve scoffed, throwing his hands up next to his head and shaking them to emphasize his point. “I want a baby, asshole.”

    As sudden as slicing a marionette’s strings, Billy’s brazenly overconfident swagger vanished; in his shock, he almost dropped his half-finished cigarette.

    Steve prayed for the earth to open up and swallow him whole.

    Summary

    Steve is (maybe) a little bit still in love with Nancy Wheeler and (maybe) trying to figure himself out-- between the night terrors and the babysitting and the general weirdness that is Hawkins, Indiana-- before he graduates.

    Billy Hargrove fits in there somewhere (probably).

    Summary

    Chuuya is, expectedly, incandescently angry at him. Dazai wants to call back and respond to what he’s saying, wants to say ‘hey, no, don’t throw away Kitchen you uncultured swine, that book slaps,’ or ‘fine take my hoodies all you want but don’t overwrite my save file on Metal Gear, you don’t even know how to play,’ or ‘sorry for leaving, I promise I really did think of you as a friend, and I did care about you’.

    dazai leaves the port mafia and things.... get better, honestly. (part of a series but can be read standalone)
