“Take me with you. For laughs, for luck, for the unknown. Take me with you.”
-The Last Unicorn
Mike goes away to college. El goes with him. Within a year she gains a new set of grandparents, a pet, a job, and enforces party rules.
Note: Future fic, featuring soooooooooooooooo many headcanons. Also, since it’s a fic about them moving away, OCs GALORE
The move to Terre Haute was not without difficulties. Mike was barely speaking to his parents, who had made good on their threats and hadn’t come down to the courthouse. Between Karen Wheeler and his nerves at starting college, Mike had become quiet and withdrawn, something that always made El feel uneasy and guilty - so much of Mike’s arguments with his parents in the last month had been about her, about them, their relationship, about how him going away to school and leaving her for Christmas and summers was simply not an option. He’d never turned it around on her, but as Hopper’s truck roared down the highway her stomach roiled, and it wasn’t from motion sickness.
