how bill, stan, eddie, and richie met headcanons
bill & stan:
they were sitting beside each other in class when bill noticed stan doodling pictures of birds in his notebook. being who he is, bill thought his best icebreaker would be pointing out the rooster he had drawn and stuttering out that it was “a nice cock” in an attempt to say ‘a nice cock-a-doodle-doo’. a wide eyed stan just giggled and bill didn’t quite understand what he’d said until later when stan explained it was a rooster.
bill & eddie:
after eddie’s father died at a very young age, he was left feeling alone and scared of the world because of his mother. he was left out of the games in school and gym/recess because thats what his mother wanted. so while sitting on the sidelines while everyone played, bill saw eddie all alone and sat beside him. they started talking and eddie didn’t even mind bill’s stutter.
bill & richie:
one of the first days of kindergarten, bill and richie were doing warmups in the gym, which consists of a few jumping jacks and running one lap around the room. some kids ran clockwise and others ran counter-clockwise. of course, the two boys collided and were knocked down onto the floor. instead of crying, they just started to giggle.
stan & eddie:
they were in the same group for science class and really didn’t talk too much until their teacher pulled out a ginormous syringe and eddie had mistaken it as needle for shots. he panicked and stan leaned over to ask if he was okay. he talked with eddie quietly until he calmed down.
stan & richie:
the first day of preschool, richie met stan and decided it would be a good idea to bite his finger. he then proceeded to tell the teacher that it was actually stan who bit his finger. stan was sent to time out and missed almost all of recess. the next day, stan proceeded to bite richie’s finger and told the teacher that now richie had bit his finger. he received the same punishment. eye for an eye.
eddie & richie:
were sitting in separate desks when richie decided to shoot a spitball at the teacher. at first, eddie thought it was disgusting and didn’t want to tolerate it but then he did it again and eddie couldn’t help but giggle. richie noticed eddie giggling at him and did it again so he could hear the other boy laugh again. that time he ended up getting caught and the teacher believed both of them had done it. they argued with each other in time out. eddie still hasn’t gotten over it.
