    Summary

    -He’d surfed many seas, rode an infinite amount of waves, though none of them quite felt like home, like he’d surfaced. It wasn’t until he met the guy with eyes as deep as the ocean that he let himself drift to shore, sinking right into them. Everything about him was like being right on the edge, like you could travel for miles and still never quite reach his depths, like a wave that couldn’t be touched, couldn’t be brought down. Sometimes, you couldn’t stop the wave, but you could learn to surf it. Eddie had spent his entire life riding the waves, but nothing could prepare him for the depths of Evan Buckley. –

    Summary

    “It’s so weird,” Maddie said. “I hear you, I do, but the first thing I thought when Buck told me was, oh, Eddie’s lost it.”

    Eddie laughed in spite of himself. “Because I trust Buck?”

    “No!” Maddie said, laughing too. “It’s just--he’s Buck! He’s my little brother. I used to watch him eat dirt because he thought it might taste like brownies. I’ve seen him eat a worm. A live worm. And you want to leave your son with him?”

    Maddie finds out about the will. She has questions.

    Summary

    Recovery is never linear, and Maddie is learning that the hard way (just like everyone learns if the world's completely honest). Buck's good. Buck's brilliant, if she's honest.

    At a loss and a low point, Buck tells her about his list of good things. A list of things that make the pain, the numb, the trembling, hurt just a little bit less.

    Summary

    When Chimney walked through the firehouse doors, head held high with a cocky walk to match, Buck felt his heart drop to the floor. He knew Chimney was back in town, he just hadn't realised the man would be back at work so soon. With every 'welcome back' and friendly hug the paramedic received from various firefighters, the tension between him and Buck grew and grew. Buck had no idea what Chimney would do when they finally came face to face again, given that the last time they spoke ended with a black eye.

    Summary

    He needed to breathe. 

    He’d been in enough pain in his life to know that. 

    So, Buck, taking all the experience of growing up alone and seeking the attention even if came at the price of a broken arm or a skinned knee did what he knew would help. 

    He exhaled slowly and melted into the table. 

    “Good boy,” Eddie said and all of Buck’s thoughts went silent as the buzzing that had been under his skin stopped. 

    Everything stopped. 

    Everything went still. 

    And Buck felt real for the first time in such a long time.

    Summary

    When Chimney and Buck are forced to run out in the middle of dinner at the Buckley-Han house, Maddie and Eddie realize they've never actually spoken to each other on their own. Neither of them are in the best place mentally, but after a night of spilling secrets and a few bottles of wine, the two realize they may be more similar than they thought. Eddie and Maddie form a bond over their diagnoses and traumas, and slowly become the friends they have always needed.

    Now multi-chaptered!

    Summary

    “Eddie, are you okay?”

    He looked away from her, past her, at the open door to his office, and he wasn’t sure how to respond. No one here knew anything about his spiral, his complete and utter breakdown that left him sobbing on his bedroom floor with bloody knuckles and a baseball bat. May might know some of it if she happened to overhear Bobby and Athena, but if she did, she didn’t say anything or treat him any differently – even though he deserved to be treated differently after what he said to her stepfather.

    “I’m gettin’ there,” he told her, knowing that his was more of a cop out than hers.

    She raised an eyebrow at him, and he knew she didn’t believe him for a second. Nodding slowly, she seemed to decide something as she looked at the time on her phone. “Have you taken your lunch yet?”

    Maddie and Eddie bond over trauma and fast food burgers.

    Summary

    “Eddie,” Maddie says after several more quiet minutes, “it’s okay to sit down,” she gestures to the chair on the other side of the bed, “he’s not going anywhere.”

    Eddie toys with the idea of bolting right out the half open door because there is something building building building in the space behind his breastbone. It pounds against his ribcage, vibrates just beneath his skin, because it needs to get out out out. He tries for a smile, completely misses the mark and finally lets himself collapse into the empty chair even though it makes him feel like a traitor.

    “You’re upset with him,” Maddie states knowingly, and despite the gentleness in her tone, she hasn’t left much room for argument.

    Eddie swallows, “Aren’t you?”

    Summary

    “You run the LAFD Twitter account,” Maddie guesses, and Eddie groans, throwing his head back, and she erupts into genuine laughter. “You, Eddie Diaz, known social media hater—”

    “You sound just like Buck!” he grouses.

    (or, Maddie runs into Eddie, and they talk.)

    Summary

    “What?” He finally gives her the response she wants.

    “Look, I’m glad you’re my friend and I love you,” she starts.

    “Thanks,” he says, truly meaning it, though he’s sure this conversation isn’t going to turn out the way he wants to.

    “But if you’re toying with my brother’s emotions, that’s it. Friendship over.”

    Summary

    Sequel to One More Troubled Soul

    Eddie stopped counting after that. He’d leave his appointment and sit in their spot on the wall. Sometimes Maddie beat him there, coffee cups in hand. Other times, Eddie would wait until he could spot her leaving the building and head across the street to order their ice-cream. Sometimes they talked, sometimes they embraced the silence.

    LA can be a pretty small place sometimes, Eddie and Maddie soon discover. And it turns sharing a therapist's office is just a step on their roads to recovery

    Summary

    Buck sat on the bed, his hands were covering his eyes, he could still feel the loss of Christopher as his head slipped under the water surface.

    Buck breathed hard, the images of Christopher still running through his mind, not knowing what he could tell Eddie as he lost his son in the tsunami.

    Buck knew that he was at fault, he took Christopher over to the theme park near the pier, if he wouldn’t take him there, Christopher will be alive.

    Summary

    “I really shouldn’t do this over the phone—on a fucking voicemail, of all things, but I—”

    Eddie breaks off with a choked noise. He’s sitting in the parking lot of Trader Joe’s, for Christ’s sake. Peak of romance, Diaz, he thinks, and then laughs. Buck deserves so much better than this. Then him. But Frank said be brave, and Eddie is—really, really fucking trying.

    “But I love you. I’m in love with you. And I want you to come home.”

     
    or, seven conversations eddie has over the phone and one he has in person.

    “9-1-1, what’s your emergency?”

    “My dad,” he cough, the smoke is getting on him, “There’s a fire in my home, and I can’t see dad, help,”

    “What’s your name, kid?”

    “My name is Christopher Diaz, I’m seven years old, please tell them to come quickly,” Christopher replied and urged the dispatcher.

    The dispatcher asked for the address and Chris gave it to her as he coughed in the background.

    Summary

    Eddie blinks once, twice, three times, before he’s turning back to his drink with a heavy sigh. “God I miss Maddie.”

    And Ravi’s maybe a little drunker than he thought, because he’s saying, “Oh my God, dude, me too,” before he remembers he’s never met her.
