The Losers Club + Stranger Things
With all these posts about It (2017) and Stranger Things season two on the way, I keep getting Mike and Mike mixed up lmao not that the Stranger Things kids need a killer clown in their life, but you gotta admit it’d be one heck of a party
Beverly and Eleven bond and Bev becomes like a big sis to her, comforting her and showing her that affection does exist, having dealt with a/buse tw herself. She often insists on painting Eleven’s nails. Mike W. thinks it’s pretty (good.)
Mike Wheeler and Richie Tozier. HOOOOOOO boy. Mike thinks this kid is a GOD. Richie gives Mike tons of new tips to help him move up in the trickster ranks, which he then of course tries out on Nancy.
Mike Hanlon and Lucas bond over their struggles with racism in the times/communities they’re living in, and, both of them being the rational thinking type, often team up to help the others think of tactical ways of defeating the Demogorgon. They’re a dynamic duo to say the least
So um Will Byers and Eddie being best friends???? These two precious boys and their protective mothers ooooh my goodness
They would both definitely side on Loogie being based on mass, whereas Richie and Mike W. INSIST on distance.
Dustin having a huge crush on Bev. Just saying.
Steve and Jonathan beating the living crap out of Henry Bowers. They look after the Losers just as they would their own siblings.
Beverly giving El tips on how to approach a boy you like, causing Eleven to turn a bright shade of red. This does not go unnoticed by Mike W.
Ben and Dustin: Overseers of all things snack related when it comes to D&D sleepovers. Ben is the Dungeon Master. Even Mike W is impressed with his skill level.
Mike W. and Ben talking books!! Both are very interested in mystery novels
Bill being a mother hen to everyone in the group. Especially when Will goes missing. He knows how badly it hurts to lose a brother, so not only does he comfort Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and Eleven, but he’s a big support to Jonathan as well. He and Jonathan spend lots of time together skipping rocks and exchanging life stories. Jonathan gives Bill lots of big brotherly advice, like he would often do with Will.
Stan and Eleven. Yes. Stan would take her bird watching, and introduce her to new worlds she’s never even scratched the surface of. Eleven is a great comfort to Stan, and listens to him all the time and makes sure he knows he’s heard. If anyone tries to mess with Stan, they have to go through her.
