The monster doesn’t want Will because it already has him in its grasp. It wants to take everyone else like how it took Will and Barb and countless other people and employees at Hawkins. It’s not a mindless creature it has actual intentions and not just taking them because it’s like an animal and hunting to survive. It wants to use them. Like how their bodies were supposed to host whatever those slugs grew into Alien Style, which unfortunately is what happened to Barb and the other people who ended up trapped.
The Monster is a parasite. The whole Upside Down is a invasive parasite that wants to spread even if it means crossing worlds which is what’s happening right now
Will is being plagued with so many visions and whispers from it. It has plans, it wants more, it’s trying to use Will to its advantage and spread beyond the labs via the gate and the slugs. Will survived the Upside Down but now he’s connected to the new monster like a hive mind, infected. That’s how he knows what it wants and why he’s getting the visions, and how it knows what’s happening in our world.
Will is becoming the living gate for the Upside Down, which in turn is a living parasite.
There’s a powerful connection between characters and the fans who love them.
Anyone who scribbled Harry Potter fanfiction or dissected the latest teen drama with their friends knows. And the line between actor and character is often completely muddled for viewers that live far beyond the realities of Hollywood.
But what if those same fans were stuck on a road trip with the object of their obsessions? That’s the idea behind the most recent book from Glee star and bestselling author Chris Colfer, Stranger than Fanfiction.
Colfer is best known in the literary world for his popular middle grade series The Land of Stories. In his latest novel, Colfer explores the world of television fandom and the trials and tribulations of teenagers on the brink of major life changes.
Stranger than Fanfiction follows four best friends who’ve bonded over nearly a decade of watching their favorite sci-fi show. As the group embarks on an end-of-high-school road trip, they impulsively invite the star of said show. When he actually shows up to join them, all five begin a journey full of misadventures, mayhem, and secrets revealed.
In a special episode of the MashReads Podcast, MashReads spoke to Colfer about his return to YA and the inspirations behind the story, from both sides of passionate fandoms.
Then, as always, we close the show with recommendations. Colfer recommends:
The Demonologist by Gerald Bittle, which explores the career of the famous paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in a documentary fashion. “The facts are scary enough by themselves,” said Colfer.
Intimacy Idiot by Isaac Oliver, a collections of essays and stories about finding love and intimacy in New York. To Colfer, “It’s the gay man’s manifesto, in a way.”
Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher, the first memoir by the late actress, based on her one-woman show. It’s also one of Colfer’s all-time favorite books. “Parts of that book I felt she wrote just for me”
Sage-ing While Age-ing by Shirley MacLaine, a book that is part memoir and part life advice from the actress. “It’s just fantastic.”

I suspect that no matter what happens I will allow it to hurt me. Eat away at my insides, as it were—as it will be. As it always has been. Why am I so accessible? Why do I give myself to people who will always and should always remain strangers?
