mike something

Can I talk to you for a second?

“Jonathan, can I talk to you for a second?” Will asked, his voice wavering slightly. Jonathan shot up from the couch, worry written all over his face. “Of course buddy, what’s up?” He followed him into the younger boy’s bedroom and shut the door behind him. Their mother was in the kitchen making dinner, and they could hear the slight crackling of something on the stove.

It was Will’s sixteenth birthday, he’d spent the day out with his friends, and they were all gonna have dinner together at seven, which his mother was currently preparing. At least that’s what he’d told her, that all his friends were coming over, when in fact it was just Mike.

He was going to tell them. Tell them about how much he loved and cared for Mike, tell them they’d been together for almost three months now. Tell them he was gay.

The plan was to just say that everyone else got held up by something, and Mike was the only one who could come. That way if he changed his mind about coming out, it wasn’t weird that he was the only one there.

“I wanted to tell you something important,” Will said quietly, running his fingers through his hair. “But I don’t, uhhhh, don’t really know how.” Jonathan’s brows furrowed, and he said “what’s wrong? You know you can talk to me about anything.”

A smile spread across Will’s face, and he felt slightly less worried. “My friends aren’t coming over for dinner. It’s just Mike.” “Why? Is everything okay? Did you fight?” Will took another deep breath. “No, no… It’s just Mike because he’s not my friend.” Jonathan looked confused and waited for him to explain what he meant. “He’s not my friend, you know?”

They stared at each other in silence for a while, before a look of understanding suddenly swept over the older’s face. “You mean he’s more than a friend?” Jonathan smiled at his brother, feeling slightly relieved that it wasn’t something more serious he’d needed to tell him. Will nodded slowly, and before he had a chance to say anything more, Jonathan pulled him in for a hug. “I’m happy for you.”

Will whispered a thank you into his brother’s shirt, and they held on to each other for almost two minutes. When they finally pulled apart, Will beamed at his brother. “You know you’re always going to be the same weird little brother to me, no matter who you bring home for dinner.” Jonathan said seriously, and Will felt tears stinging at his eyes. “You’re the best, you know that?”

The doorbell rang, interrupting their moment, and Will ran to open it. Outside, Mike was stood in a knitted sweater, holding a bouquet of flowers, a nervous smile spread across his face. “Happy birthday again!” He said, holding the flowers toward him. Will giggled and pulled his boyfriend into a hug. The two boys walked inside and headed to the kitchen.

“Hey, Mike! How are you?” Joyce smiled, putting a plate of chicken on the table. “I’m great, Mrs. Byers. How are you?” He replied. “Wonderful, thank you. Are the others here as well?” Will and Mike exchanged a look, and Mike said “No, they, uhhhh, got held up. I don’t think they’ll make it.” Joyce furrowed her brows, but smiled none the less. “Oh well, more for us then!”

The four of them sat down around the dinner table, and Mike’s hand found Will’s under the tablecloth. “So, what’ve you done today?” Joyce asked, taking a bite of her chicken. “Nothing much, just been at the arcade.” Will replied. He looked up at his brother, who nodded encouragingly at him.

“There was actually something I wanted to talk to you about.” He muttered. Joyce looked at him, and waited for him to continue. “The others aren’t actually busy. I told them not to come.” “Oh, how come? Is everything alright?” Will sighed “Yes, everything’s better than alright, wonderful actually.”

He paused, scared to finish the sentence. He imagined all the ways his mother could react. What if she kicked him out? What if she sent him away? What if she stopped loving him? He closed his eyes, and Mike stroked his hand soothingly. She wouldn’t. She promised she’d always love him. No matter what.

He wasn’t worried, not really. He knew his mother was the best person in the world, and so he clutched Mike’s hand and said: “I’m seeing someone. Actually, not just someone..” “Me!” Mike interrupted, a wide smile on his face. Joyce looked at them both, narrowing her eyes, before letting out a slight giggle. “I know, honey,”

The two boys looked at each other with confused and surprised expressions. “What do you mean you know? We haven’t told anyone!” She laughed again and responded “Will, I’m your mother. Did you really think I wouldn’t notice?” Will shot her mother a confused look, but smiled. “But from now on, I’d appreciate if you came in through the front door, and not my son’s bedroom window, Mike.” She gave him a stern, but playful look.

Will had to admit, it had been a while since he felt this happy.

Prompt: the electricity goes out on a stormy night when mike and Will are having a sleepover. Will is very scared of being cold so Mike and him create a fort with lots of warm blankets and eventually some cuddles.

At first, Will thought he went blind– or worse, been hallucinating without any real warning. He was lying on his stomach in between the coffee table and the couch in Mike’s basement, sketching out a character for their new campaign. Mike was on the couch, feet stretched over Will and resting on the coffee table. Their day of hanging out turned into a sleepover when a sudden storm began drenching the town and making the roads unsafe. Will didn’t mind; Mike always gave the best descriptions to draw from. They made a great creative team. Will put down his pencil to reach for an eraser when the basement disappeared from view. Everything went to complete darkness.

“Mike!” Will cried, suddenly pushing himself up onto his arms. “Mike?”

“I’m right here.” Mike answered, his fumbling hand reaching out and grabbing Will’s shoulder. “A powerline went down. You’re okay.”

“Okay. Sorry.” Will swallowed the screams in his throat. The darkness still scared him; he had to have at least one light on in his room constantly to convince himself he was in the real world. It was helpful he at least had Mike if nothing else.

Ok so

I doubt it’s just me but did it freak anyone else out in season 1 of stranger things when Mike jumped off that cliff without hesitation? When I watched the show for the first time that part really freaked me out because of the fact that Mike barely hesitated. I see posts of people kind of making fun of Mike saying oh well he jumped off a cliff to save his friends teeth. In my honest opinion no one, not even a 12 year old, would barely hesitate to jump off a cliff (even to save his friends teeth no matter how good of a friend he is) if they didn’t have something going on deeper inside them. Perhaps you could argue that Mike thought he would survive the fall? But in my opinion Mike is a smart child and he even he should know that he wouldn’t survive that fall. Even the bullies were freaked out when he jumped because they didn’t think he actually would. He had like no emotion on his face before he did anything and people who don’t want to die or get hurt would usually be crying or showing some kind of emotion imo. I mean Mike comes from a home where yeah perhaps they’re not struggling financially or anything like that but he does have an inattentive father and two parents who don’t love each other and from personal experience I can tell you that that messes with a child whether they realize it or not. Not to mention the fact that he is bullied and perhaps you could add some other things. I personally think Mike may have deeper issues and I also think that him barely hesitating to even jump off that cliff was a big red flag ok bye

Byeler: does a bunch of lowkey gay stuff in season 2

Me: *mike wheeler voice* Maybe all of this… is happening for a reason

anonymous asked:

for the headcanons,,, maybe the losers + walking in on reddie? like little snapshots of them kissing, cuddling, asleep in each other's arms, etc? <3

(losers are about 17-18 in this okay okay)

let me tell you which couple is absolutely terrible at being discreet………reddie. they just don’t understand how you can be together?? and not be touchy always??????? baffling

so of course the rest of the losers often found them in cute positions or ones that required holy water eye drops but anyway

(warnings for drug mention, and some relatively slight sexual themes)

+the first time the losers saw them being outright cuddly with each other was at a sleepover at bill’s. richie and eddie were the last ones awake, sitting on the couch together and watching movies. eddie probably would have been asleep but richie kept talking and making him laugh so they stayed up together, and eventually both fell asleep on the couch

+ben woke up first and rushed to wake up everyone except reddie because OHMYGOD GUYS LOOK HOW CUTE and the entire losers club giggled at how richie and eddie were tangled together on the couch, richie’s mouth open and leaving a tiny puddle of drool on eddie’s chest (that he would definitely never hear the end of)

+they all took bets on when they’d end up together

+once they actually did get together, richie and eddie thought they were being sneaky most of the time but they never were

+the windows on richie’s truck used to get steamy for one reason: hot boxing. bev found out the other reason when she thought she’d join her friend and found out he 1. was not smoking and 2. was not alone

+”richie you didn’t tell me we were smoking tod- OH MY GOD uh hi eddie i’m just gonna go away now bye guys have fun”

+we all know the losers were always either in the theater or at bill’s watching movies okay. they’re in the theater one day and mike sits next to eddie, with rich on eddie’s other side. about halfway through the movie, he feels a hand bump his shoulder. it’s richie’s, and eddie is leaned into richie’s side, his legs swung into the taller boy’s lap, and richie is giving him a shy and apologetic look for bumping him as he swung his arm around eddie. and mike just beams at him because his friends!!! are so precious and happy!!!! wow

+bill just,,,,,, needed to borrow eddie’s history notes,,,,, and instead…. he was the first to find out that richie often spent the night at eddie’s. he walked in and said hi to Mrs. Kaspbrak and went upstairs and let himself into eddie’s room

+and there was eddie, fast asleep, hair tousled

+bill didn’t even notice that there were clothes on the floor (eddie would never leave clothes on his floor) (especially not a metallica tshirt and worn out jeans that really should’ve been thrown away a year ago) or that eddie by himself would not make such a big lump in the covers

+until he heard the trashmouth himself say “wassup big bill, come to join the party?” and bill jumped from digging in eddie’s backpack so fast that he hit his head on the nightstand and saw stars

+the commotion was loud enough to wake eddie up, who looked at bill and blushed

+bill grabbed the notes he’d come for and, upon noticing that both of his friends definitely didn’t have shirts on and deciding he didn’t want to know anything else about the situation, blushed and stammered and practically flew out of the room

+stan was going bird watching by himself because he wanted some peace and quiet. he decided to go in the evening so maybe he could even catch the beginnings of some owl activity. he biked down to the quarry, ready to sit at the edge of the water until dark.

+but richie and eddie were already at the water’s edge, on a tattered old blanket that stan personally would have never touched. eddie was laying against richie’s side, and richie was hugging him close and kissing him on the top of the head and stan could hear him talking but couldn’t make out the words. 

+as the two leaned their faces toward each other and started to kiss, stan slowly backed up and left as quietly as he could, smirking to himself

(((aaaaand that’s all folks)))
