    Summary

    Illya’s head whips around, the goons who are rapidly closing in on their location all but forgotten, but Napoleon seems to be entirely unaware of what he just said. Or at the very least, entirely unfazed. He’s already pulling the documents out of the safe and tucking them into his jacket along with his hastily reassembled safecracking kit. Illya watches, still stunned, as Napoleon tugs the pistol out of his shoulder holster, checks the clip, then slams it back together again.

    “I’ve got ten rounds. You?”

    Illya’s throat doesn’t seem to be working. He didn’t—

    Surely Napoleon didn’t actually—

    “Peril? You ok?”

    (Or, five times Napoleon tells Illya “I love you,” and one time Illya realizes he means it.)

    Summary

    It’s been weeks. They have never gone this long without speaking to Patrick. A few days at a time when Patrick went camping with his buddies or the week-long vacation he took with Rachel after they graduated. They have received a single text message, the day after Patrick left without a word, the day after Rachel called and tearfully told them Patrick broke off the engagement and left only a (ridiculous) town name as clue of his whereabouts. The text message read: I’m okay. Love you, talk soon

    Or, 5 Times Patrick Calls + 1 Time David Does

    Summary

    “Buck?” Eddie’s voice is scratchy when he answers the phone and Buck instantly regrets calling. He pulls it away from his ear, notes the time in the top left corner—1:47, fuck.

    “Shit, sorry,” he says. “I didn’t even think about the time. Just—forget it, Eds, fuck.”

    “Hey.” Eddie’s voice is still rough but clearer, more distinct. “I’m awake now so tough shit, tell me what’s going on.”

    Buck laughs, humourlessly. His legs are tangled and sweaty in his sheets and it’s definitely too hot to be wearing sweats and socks to bed but he can’t bring himself to move. He swipes at the damp on his forehead. “What do you think?”

    There’s a pause. “Do you wanna tell me what it was about?”

    “Not really.”

    “Okay.” On the other end of the line there’s some rustling, like Eddie’s getting out of bed, then a yawn. Buck takes the sound and tucks it in between his palms, a benediction. “Do you wanna hear about Chris’ book report?”

    Five conversations Buck and Eddie have on the phone + one time they hang up.

    Summary

    Eddie is anxious about starting physical therapy next week. Buck is on mandatory personal leave due to the panic attacks he's been having. On a whim, they decide to take Christopher on a short weekend trip, making no real plans and just winging it as they go. Meanwhile, Eddie gives his best effort to keep his pining under wraps, but he couldn't be more obvious about it, honestly. Especially when Buck gets a new hyperfixation in the form of llamas.
