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.
Do you really think now is the best time for a canoeing trip?
Of course. I know how important it is to you. That's why we constantly mention our plans to go canoeing. Not a day goes by that we don't curse the newest villain for trying to destroy the town because it delays our chance to canoe.
When have we ever talked about canoeing?
This might be our only chance to go off and do this before Gideon regroups and attacks me again.
Was the canoeing trip even my idea?
Let's go make one last memory as mother and son before the forces of evil attack again and the show remembers that I'm the main character.
Oh! This is a plot dodging trip.
Obviously. And it would work a lot better if you played along.
You're still bringing your gun in case Gideon decides to poof in and attack us on the river though, right?
The bed curtains move slightly in the mid-september air as the two of them lay sprawled across the bed. A lucky chance of timing had allowed them to fly to Spain. With the opened widow of their hotel room, Sevilla is gently greeting them with the sounds of the people and the music on the streets. A late honeymoon. When they got married, Bess was pregnant, their company on the brink of ruin, and their purses, empty. No time or money for vacation. Then of course, the situation improved -but time was still a luxury. And after two years, they decided to be selfish for the next couple of weeks. Her head lays on his chest, her ear attunes to the sound of his heartbeat as it calms after the passion they just experienced. Her eyes are closed as she listens. How can she express the quietude she feels in such a moment? He watches her, thankful in his own way, and equally overwhelmed with emotion. His agile fingers plays with the strands of her long hair. It is wild with what they just did, but as they rest he lovingly caresses each strand, combing it until it falls across his own ribs and onto the linens of the bed below.
The afternoon sunlight catches and plays in the gleaming rich gold of her hair. During their visit of the Royal Alcázar Palace this morning, Elizabeth announced that she wanted another child. A little girl. I hope, she specified. He smiled, and his first thought was ‘another one already?’, but remembered how lovely she had been with a round belly and how more love was never a problem. Looking down, Henry is taken aback for a moment at how utterly beautiful she is as she rests so easily upon him. She unwinds her left hand from the mess of sheets they are tangled in and finds the idle fingers of his right. She touches him lightly, her eyes still closed. Then her fingers lock with his and he is helpless to resist bringing hers to his lips and kissing them. She feels the touch and shifts to look up at him, meeting his eyes. They both smile silently then. His one hand still intertwines with hers, his other wrappes itself in her beautiful hair, softly cradling the back of her skull, and gently encourages her to meet his lips with hers.
Finally got around to posting these! These are based off of some conversations with @thelostmoongazer about his adorably heart-wrenching HATIM AU. Specifically regarding why Henry looks so damn messed up.
Lets just say that, after Bendy ran away, Joey had to look into finding a replacement for the little dancing demon. Had to keep the show going somehow! Except, when Joey couldn’t FIND a replacement, he got the. Right idea to making one instead. Henry was his first (and failed) draft. Hence all. The ink dripping. And such.
But then I started wondering… what if Joey HADN’T failed? What if he HAD made a whole new Bendy? And thus, a derivative AU was born. One where Bendy still returns to a decrepit, broken down studio after receiving a letter from Joey, but instead of finding Henry, he finds this… weird, jumpy, mute, puny, nameless doppelgänger. Who seems very determined to keep him from starting the ink machine. And almost seems like he already knows Bendy… (but I mean, who doesn’t? Bendy DID used to be a star!)
Bendy thinks the little guy is a pest at first, but after the shorty rescues him from several near-death experiences, he decides to take the little guy “under his wing”, and gives him the nickname, “Buddy”.
