    Summary

    Buck knows what it's like to feel abandoned and he'd be damned if this tiny baby was going to grow up feeling like he had.

    A baby is left at the 118 with a note stating he had done his job as a saviour sibling. Buck takes this to heart and sets about to show the baby that the world isn't completely full of terrible people; And if he reaffirms his definition of family along the way, so be it.

    Summary

    Buck had felt the warning twinge earlier in the day, but it wasn’t slowing him down. As the calls kept coming, he had started to grit his teeth. And by the time he was putting his own oxygen mask over a tiny, barely-unconscious, sooty and tear-streaked face, his leg had half-buckled when he tried to stand back up with her rag-dolled limbs in his arms.

    It’s always worse when it’s kids.

    Summary

    Eddie’s a steady man who likes predictability. He buys the same beer all the time, the same shirts just in different colors, the same type of mulch for the garden every year.

    But the thing is, Chris is starting high school in two weeks, and Bobby has been floating the idea of retirement around more and more. Chim and Maddie are expecting a second baby, and Pepa and Abuela have been talking of looking for a new home for Abuela soon.

    And then there’s the promotion and the transfer, and it’s all just a bit much for Eddie to handle.

    But he spins the silicone ring on his finger, smiling down at it while the heat of Buck’s thigh presses carefully into his own. At least that’s something that isn’t changing.
    --
    Or, even when everything changes, some things stay the same.

    Summary

    Maddie peers further in the box. “You said something about videos?” She asks, taking some items out of the box.

    “Yeah!” Albert says, digging further in. “There are videos in here. We didn’t watch them that night, didn’t get that far in the box. Buck had an early shift the next day.” Albert pulls out a handful of disks. “I have no idea what’s on them.”

    “Sex tape.” Chimney and Hen say at the same time.

    “Ugh, why do you have to ruin this?”

    *

    After a call leaves Buck presumed missing, the 118 gather in his loft to find comfort together. They didn't know that comfort would be in the form of a falling apart box, filled with videos of his time traveling the country, trying to find his home. A 'Buck Begins Again' no one asked for.
