An Unlikely Meeting ~ Finn Wolfhard x Reader ~ Part One
As I stood gripping my phone in my hands I decided that standing in this long-ass line was totally worth it. In about an hour, I would be meeting the cast of Stranger Things. I would be meeting Finn Wolfhard. I tried my best not to squeal out loud. I had been compressing bursts of excitement all day so I had no idea what was going to happen when I actually met them. Actually, I had been compressing bursts of excitement since I bought my tickets to Toronto Comic-Con. I was hoping that I didn’t embarrass myself when I actually met everyone. ~ Before you knew it, the line had gone down and you were at the very front about to go in. The security guard moved the barrier aside and you went through. It was a wonder you didn’t start screaming profanities at the sight. A few other people were in front of you and you started at the right side of the table. It was Gaten Matarazzo. He took a poster off the pile and signed it in silver sharpie.
“Hi!” He said with a smile, “It’s so nice to meet you! I’m Gaten.” “I’m, Y/N, and it’s great to meet you too. Would it be okay if I took a picture?” “Of course! As long as I can get one with you as well!”
You took a picture together on your phone and then one on Gaten’s as whenever a fan asked for a photo he always got one too. You took your poster and went to meet Caleb who stood up, took a picture with you and signed your poster, grinning ear to ear the entire time. Then it was Noah’s turn. He wasn’t in his seat at the table though. He had his sharpie and was standing ready to engulf you in a big hug.
“I’m Noah. Thanks for coming. It’s great to meet you!” With a quick flick of his pen, your poster was signed and he took the picture of you two together. “Thank you so much, Noah,” You tried to keep your tone from reaching an unnatural height, “It’s amazing finally getting to meet you.” “You too!”
Millie said hello as she signed and asked you your name, where you were from and if you were excited for season two. You had a little conversation and a photo before you moved on to Finn who was stood up like Noah. He was about to hug you when everything went black. ~ “Is she okay? What happened?” “I don’t know! I was going to hug her and she collapsed. I think she’s waking up…”
You opened your eyes to see that five very worried faces were looking down at you.
“Oh, my gosh,” Millie said, “Someone go get the medical guy!” She ran off somewhere to fetch someone. Caleb and Gaten followed. “Are you okay?” Noah asked, “It’s Y/N, isn’t it? What happened?” He and Finn knelt down and helped you sit up. With a very anxious look on his face, Finn handed you a bottle of water. “Did I faint?” You asked in a quiet voice, “I’m so sorry.” Finn looked stunned, “Why are you apologising?! You don’t need to be sorry. The others have gone to get some help.” “Thank you.” You smiled and Finn smiled back, “No problem,” He replied, “Is there anything else you need?” “I don’t think so. Except for my poster.” Noah and Finn laughed. “You just fainted on me and you’re worried about that? You can have all the posters you want if you promise not to die on us.” You laughed along with Finn and Noah. “In that case, I want a hundred posters so I can cover my whole bedroom with them.” Noah smiled. “I like you Y/N. You’re easy to get along with.” “Yeah,” Finn agreed, “Except for the fainting thing. That’s just a huge pain in my ass.” More laughter. And more. Even though it made your head hurt you couldn’t help it.
Suddenly Millie, Gaten and Caleb came rushing in with a doctor behind them. Finn stayed next to you as you were examined and asked questions about the fall. He asked if you were experiencing dizziness or nausea. Because you were he told you it was probably a concussion and he was going to take you out back where you could get rid of it. “When we’re done,” Finn said to you, “We’ll come and see how you’re doing. And I’ll bring your poster, don’t worry.”
You both shared a smile as you were taken off for an aspirin and a rest. Despite the fact you collapsed, this was quickly turning into the best day of your life. ~ You almost went into cardiac arrest when Finn and the others came into the room you were in. “How are you doing, Y/N?” Finn asked “Better. Much better.” “Good. Do they know why you fainted?” “They’re saying that it was because of the excitement and the fact I haven’t eaten.” “If we’re not keeping you from anyone,” Millie said with an encouraging smile, “You could come to eat with us. We’re not the ones paying for it so you don’t have to worry about that.” “Seriously?” “Sure.” Gaten cut in, “As long as you don’t steal my fries.”
You grinned and called your mum to tell her that she didn’t have to come and take you back to the hotel for another few hours. As you walked out and to the cars that were there to take everyone to dinner, Finn struck up a conversation with you.
“Did you fly here? Where from?” “I live in Vancouver, actually. I couldn’t pass up this opportunity.” “As if we’re both from Vancouver. What are the chances, huh?” “Apparently they’re quite high for us.” “Apparently so. Now, where shall we head for dinner?” “I don’t mind. It’s up to you guys, considering you’ve let me tag along.” “Don’t mention it, Y/N, and don’t worry about your poster,” he chuckled, “I’ve got that.” “Thank you so much.” You got in the back of a matte black Jeep, in the middle of Finn and Millie. The others were in the car behind. Millie looked down at your Doc Martens. “Your boots are to die for!” “Thanks,” you smiled, “I got them from Camden Market in London when I went in the summer. They’re limited edition.” “Well, they look good on you, Y/N, if you don’t mind me saying.” “Of course not! And thank you.” “Okay,” Finn leaned over, “I’m feeling really left out. Is nobody going to tell me how hot I look in this jacket?” You and Millie burst out laughing and at the same time and said, “No.” “Wow. I’m hurt,” Finn held his hand to his chest as if he had been wounded, “I hope we get to the restaurant soon. I’m being bullied in this car.” You and Millie carried on laughing, you couldn’t help it. Once the two of you composed yourselves a little she took her phone out and went on Instagram. “Okay you two, photo for my Insta story. Smileeee!”
Millie took the photo and made you give her your Instagram name so she could tag you and follow you. Finn did the same. Before you knew what was happening, you had follow requests coming in.
As you pressed accept, you wondered how two hours ago you were lining up to meet your heroes and now you were in the back of a car going to dinner with them and getting follow requests on Instagram from them. What was this life you had just randomly been dropped into? Not that you were complaining…
You were sat between Finn and Noah and the others were across from you. Gaten had insisted that you dine at Nando’s and nobody had a problem with that since you were all starved. You were having the time of your life. Millie was asking you about your life in Vancouver, and everyone else was listening in eagerly.
“So,” Millie was leaning on her hands listening intently, “You’re a straight A student, but you must do other things too!” “Yeah,” You thought for a moment, “I dance.” “You dance?” Finn raised his eyebrows “Yeah. Ever since I was four.” “Damn,” Millie looked impressed, “Have you got videos?” Shitshitshitshitshit Finn is going to see me dancing, your thoughts were getting very loud indeed. “Yeah. I do.” You got your phone from your bag, found the Instagram account for your dance school and gave them the phone. Mille angled it so that Finn and Noah could see too. You tried really hard not to start blushing. “You are so good, Y/N!” Finn said “Yeah!” Millie agreed, “Do you compete?” “We do, yeah.” “I’m not surprised,” Millie handed your phone back to you, “Anything else we should know about you? Are you hiding any more amazing talents?” “Not really. I write for fun, but other than that I’m pretty normal. You know, nothing special.” “Do not say that.” Millie looked serious, “You’re special. I’m just so glad we met you.” “Yeah,” Gaten added, “It’s actually really great to have you here. I don’t have to hear Millie complain about how she wishes she wasn’t surrounded by boys all the time."
Everyone’s food arrived and you had to elbow Finn a couple of times because he kept stealing your fries. ~ The six of you closed Nando’s. At eleven pm (pun intended) you all stood up and slipped into your jackets. You could see the Jeeps with the blacked out windows at the curb. You really didn’t want the night to end, and neither did Millie.
"Hey. I’ve got an idea, just tell me if it sucks, okay Y/N?” “Sure…” “How about we meet for breakfast tomorrow. It’s our last day and we can spend it however we want. It would be cool if we could spend it with you.” “Really?” You genuinely were surprised “Of course! Meet us at the Waffle House down the road from here. And then we can go from there.” “Okay then. What time?” “Well,” Millie looked at Finn and Caleb and rolled her eyes, “They like to sleep in, so shall we say ten?”“ "Yeah, that works for me. I think my mum is outside, so I’ll see you in the morning.” Millie pulled you in for a hug, “Of course, and I just wanted to say, I’m really glad we met you.” “Me too.”
You said goodbye to the others and almost went into cardiac arrest for the billionth time today when Finn gave you a hug. When you met your mum she asked you about your day and how it was going to dinner with the cast of Stranger Things. She didn’t really understand the full capacity of what had just happened to you. You were so wrapped up in your evening that you completely forgot to tell her you fainted and how it was the reason you made five unlikely friends today.
You got up extra early and took a shower, even though you weren’t meeting everyone until ten. You thought it would be best to leave yourself plenty of time to get ready and make your way to the restaurant. Once you were out of the shower you dried your hair and braided it. You went with really basic makeup, not wanting to overdo it too much. As for your outfit you put on some high waisted black jeans, a white cropped sweater, and of course your Doc Martens. At about nine fifteen you said goodbye to your mum who was spending the day shopping and headed to the Waffle House. You googled its location last night when you found that you couldn’t sleep from excitement. ~ “Y/N!” You turned around and saw everyone coming down the street, “Hey!” Millie engulfed you in a hug and then so did Finn. “Hey!” You smiled, “I think you guys are in the same hotel as me.” “Seriously?” Noah asked, “We could have a movie night tonight if you are!” “Oh my, yes!” Millie clapped her hands together in excitement, “Are you in the Hilton too?” “Yeah. I thought we were in the same because of the road you came down.” “Guys we can talk about this over waffles,” Caleb sighed, “I’m really hungry.” And with that you went in to get seated, still talking about your plans for the evening. ~ Time skip to the evening… “I can’t believe you two dragged us round Sephora for an hour and a half,” Gaten sighed, “Look at my arms! They’re covered in lines of lipstick!” “And mine,” Finn said “They’re swatches,” Millie rolled her eyes, “And stop complaining. Y/N and I have been kind enough to let you pick the movies tonight.” “Do you guys mind if we stop at my room on the way up? I want to ditch all this stuff and change.” You asked “Sure.”
You all stepped out of the hotel elevator and to your room. The boys waited outside while you and Millie went in. Your mum still wasn’t back. “What shall I put on,” you said to Millie from your bedroom “Go with comfy but cute.” You put on some black cotton shorts and a tank top along with some fuzzy socks. Before running out to Millie you took your hair down and ran through it. “Come on,” You smiled, “Let’s go.”
When you went outside the boys all gave you the look up and down before heading back to their room. Millie dressed into something similar to you and grabbed a tonne of blankets from the bedroom and sat down together in front of the flat screen. When the boys came back from getting changed, Caleb and Noah ordered room service. Pizza, of course. Finn came and sat down next to you so you were between him and Millie.
“God Finn you are such a blanket hog.” He laughed and moved closer to you causing a shiver to run down your spine. “Better?” He whispered “Maybe.”
Despite the fact that you had just met Finn and the others, you could see the tight friendship forming. New connections, new relationships, new start. You wondered what would happen with Finn. Especially Finn.
TO BE CONTINUED!
So this started out as something I was writing for @thoughtfullyyoungduck as they requested it, but it’s turned into a lot more so there will be more parts, but bear with me as I have shit loads to do, honestly.

lucas and max totally grow up to be the friends to sit in the background and talk shit about everyone else with each other and say they’re “too good for drama” but as someone gets the tiniest bit confrontational they’re on their feet throwing fists
Hi quick thing, when Will first got out of the upside down (S1) he never knew what El looked like, so he just had to go off of everyone’s explanations of her. And then in Season 2 he was kinda “possessed” by the Demogorgon he wouldn’t have properly seen what El was like then either, not until he was okay. So the first time Will saw El properly was at the SnowBall. Why have we not had an official meeting of El and Will ???? Like I feel like that’s a need ????
