Most of It
Billy looks back over at him, drying his blood-free hand on a corner of the plaid shirt. “What the fuck is wrong with you?” Billy asks. Steve says, “I wish I fucking knew,” even though he does know. What he means is, I wish I could get it to fucking stop. (21,347 words)

You'll Lose the Blues in Chicago
Steve takes a second to feel relieved he’s not Dustin getting all sorts of arrested in places he shouldn’t be, then he goes back to staring. Steve hasn’t seen Billy Hargrove since high school. Three years ago. The cop is staring at them, looking back and forth. “So uh,” the cop says, “Are you boys…good? If you’re still willing to vouch for him, then I’ll need you to sign for him, Mr. Harrington.” “Steve,” Steve corrects absently, at the same time Billy corrects, "Princess." The cop coughs awkwardly, and Steve walks up to the front, signs for Billy like he’s a package, or he guesses, in trouble with the law. (99,815 words)

In Waves
It’s March and it’s too cold for Billy to be shirtless and wearing shorts, but he hadn’t noticed until Harrington appeared and made him hold still. Harrington can’t seem to stop looking at the bruises. “What’s it to you if I miss a little school, Harrington?” Billy asks. He feels goosebumps rising on his skin. “I don’t know,” Harrington snaps back, looking uncomfortable. He shifts his weight from one foot to the other. Plant your feet, Billy wants to scream at him. I’m going to bowl you over. (45,095 words)

all these to me
He walks back into his empty house and triple checks the door is locked. He stares at himself in the bathroom mirror. “Get your shit together,” he tells himself sternly, because Billy Hargrove is maybe the best friend he’s ever had, and it’s only been like three weeks, and he can’t let any--whatever twists in his stomach when Billy smiles--get in the way of that.

[The short one where they visit a science lab, among other things.]

thanks for the call
Steve shuts his eyes and hates himself, because his dad had said awful things about Billy and Steve had nodded his head and gotten a job. Last night, apparently, Jeremy Rice had said awful things about Steve, and Billy had kicked his ass and gotten arrested.

lymricks - max & billy
“Are you gay?” she asks.

He hesitates. “Yes.”

“Are you dating Steve?”

Jesus. “I’m not–”

“I saw you, Billy,” she says. She’s still pulling up little tufts of grass, ripping them apart in her fingers. “Are you dating him?”

meet with monsters
[Billy helps the gang fight monsters.]

“What in god’s name--Hargrove, what did you do to him?”

Harrington’s head lulls against Billy’s shoulder. “Can we talk about this later?” Billy snaps. “He’s light, but he’s not that fucking light.”

you'll lose the blues in Chicago
The one where Steve moves to Chicago, picks Billy up at the police station, and falls in love. The children are perfect. Billy connects with El. Tons of trauma.

Yeah, but where's the rain? - lymricks - Justified [Archive of Our Own]
The man-in-charge is away for three weeks, so Tim's stuck right where the lady at the front desk says he is: learning beginner firearms from a cowboy marshal.

Home is a place you lived once - lymricks - Justified [Archive of Our Own]
What he will remember is the way the lights from the bar make the pavement burn blue, and how it reminds him of fire, even as the rain leaks into his shoes and drenches his socks in a slow crawl, heel first, reaching for the toe.
