loser’s club winter headcanons
-as a result of his mother, eddie always ends up with extra winter gear in his backpack, in his locker. if someone shows up without mittens he won’t hesitate to shove some on them.
-the only member of the club who doesn’t horribly procrastinate on final projects is ben. he tries his hardest to help his stressed friends.
-the club goes to the farm for sledding & it is an Event. it can last hours until someone can’t feel their fingers.
-it gets harder with cold, short days in Maine when you have to be in school most of the time. there are actually days when the club will get up before the sun comes up and get home after the sun goes down. it does a number on bill, all that darkness. it’s not uncommon for bill & richie to disappear during lunch. they’re just taking a long walk outside to feel the sun on their face even if it’s fucking cold out. they don’t talk about anything in particular.
-stan doesn’t like the feeling of boots on his feet. he sticks to his regular shoes unless it’s absolutely necessary. when they’re walking as a group outside, someone’s always a few steps ahead of stan, making sure nothing is too slippery.
-they start doing bonfires in the barrens. they stay there until the fire is crackling, huddled together. warmed by their laughter, by the their love for each other, if the fire isn’t enough anymore.
-beverly starts learning to knit. she is terrible, awful at it. she knits them all horrendous scarves and laughs because everyone acts like they’re the best gifts they’ve ever received and wear them with the upmost pride
