    Summary

    "You okay, kid?" Danny asked, leaning forward to regard the young man across the table in concern.
    "No, yeah, I'm...fine," Buck shrugged, poking at his stir-fry. "My, uh, my parents heard about the...thing," he waved his free hand vaguely towards his arm, where the fresh pink line of a scar could be seen.
    "Oh?" Danny's eyebrows lifted.
    "...Yeah," Buck chewed on his lower lip, studying the table in front of him. "They were...they didn't take it well."
    "...I take it you don't mean in an 'oh my god my kid got shot' sort of way," Danny pursed his lips, reaching out to set the tips of his fingers against the back of Buck's limp hand.
    Buck snorted, sounding bitter. "'Oh, how could you risk your career like that?'" he mocked, suddenly putting on a thick, feminine French accent. "'You're just starting to do so well, Evan, darling, what would you do if they'd had to take your arm?'"
    Danny scowled, suddenly taking Buck's hand in his own. "What, not even an 'are you okay?'" he asked incredulously, eyebrows knit. "I mean, shit, I'm pretty sure my ex-wife hates me, and she'll at least ask that."

    Summary

    There’s an empty spot next to the guy, so what the fuck—Danny steps up to the bar and sprawls into the seat. He’s had a terrible day, so at the very least he deserves some eye candy to surreptitiously enjoy while drowning his sorrows.

    Summary

    He casts his gaze to the right, to the voice he’d heard a minute ago and the hand still on his shoulder.

    And, well. Okay. So Buck may have just been unconscious for an indeterminable length of time but he doesn’t think he’s exaggerating when he says the guy leaning over his bedside is one of the most attractive people he’s seen in a long time. Especially when his face splits into a smile that rivals the brightness of the hospital lights that almost just fucking blinded Buck a second ago.

    “Welcome back, hotshot,” the guy says and it sounds fond – familiar – and Buck honestly has no idea who this guy is.

    His brown hair is dishevelled on top of his head and his eyes look tired but then Buck notices the LAFD t-shirt so- alright. Someone from the firehouse, maybe? But he’s pretty sure he’d remember a face like that.

    After getting hurt on a call, Buck wakes up thinking it's 2018. AKA Buck can't remember who Eddie is but he's pretty sure everyone's lying when they say they're "just friends."

    Summary

    James Copley has his hands quite full handling a group of immortal mercenaries—including keeping tabs on Booker. A task that is considerably easier since the two have somehow fallen into a romantic relationship.

    While Booker is still hurting from the consequences of his betrayal, James finds the Frenchman's sarcastic snark charming. The two widowers are kindred souls in increasingly similar ways as they work to redeem themselves and their actions.

    However, when Copley is confronted by a face from the past, he is surprised to witness how protective immortals can be of their family and in turn how protective he is of them.

    (This takes place after the film, in a nebulous time before Quynh's reappearance. No major spoilers for The Old Guard: Force Multiplied)
