    Summary

    Alex swings the door of his dorm room open with as much bravado as he can muster, only to be immediately be hit in the face with something hard and plastic that hurts like a motherfucker. “What the hell?!” He yells, clutching the side of his head that was impacted. The object that hit him clatters to the floor and Alex notices that it’s an ice hockey helmet.

    His roommate is standing on the other side of the room, next to a bed that has an open suitcase on it. He looks stunned for a second, but when Alex sends him a truly stormy look, he frowns. “Well, I mean, who the fuck swings a door open like that?!”

    “Oh, that’s rich,” Alex snipes, “So now it’s my fault that you hit me in the face with a fucking helmet?”

    Or, Alex and Willie are college roommates. An unfortunate meeting leads them to hate each other, at first. Thankfully, things change.

    Summary

    Finding out that Bobby didn't believe he was ready, didn't think he could do it, that he'd be a liability to the others, that was gutting, like physically painful. It pulled the rug out from under him, and Buck's struggling with how he's meant to pull himself up from this.

    He spots the card on his table, the lawyer from the other day, the one who--

    ---
    Eddie inadvertently stops Buck from calling Mackey, taking them both down an entirely different path. With Carla out of commission for a while, Buck steps in to take care of Chris while Eddie works, altering their dynamic significantly.

    Summary

    “My heart’s pounding,” Buck whispers.

    Eddie swallows thickly, his own heart slamming so hard against his ribcage that it’s starting to hurt. He only needs to lean forward ever so slightly for their foreheads to touch, causing both their breaths to stutter into the small space left between them.

    “Mine, too,” he admits.

    And it almost feels like enough. Just being in this in-between. Just knowing they both feel something that’s more. More than just best friends. Without having to take the leap and change their relationship forever. Without doing something that can’t be undone.
