    Summary

    For Whumptober Day 6: "Stop, please."

    Most days, it's nothing. A twinge if he lands on it wrong, an ache during rainstorms.
    Other days, Buck can't breathe.

    Summary

    They’re in the middle of a game of pool when Buck brings it up, but everyone seems focused on making a shot rather than paying him any mind. He understands of course. They all saw it as Buck making a fuss over some non-existent thing, only it didn’t feel that way, at least not to him. So, he pushes forward, allows himself to be vulnerable and share his worries. But like everything else, it blows up in his face.

    Chimney, albeit unknowingly, strikes the all-too-familiar match. "So, it’s all about you then?"

    And Buck knows that the words are meant in a teasing way. He watches them all chuckle at Chim’s words, like it’s a secret joke between the rest of them, but a small part of him can’t help but wonder if this is how they see him, how they've always seen him; selfish.

    Summary

    Healing after a truck bombing, breakup, pulmonary embolism, tsunami and lawsuit is a slow process when you're afraid to talk to your team when it feels like the world is crumbling in on you. Finding your way out of the crippling darkness is a lonely process when you're afraid you'll get benched again for something beyond your control. Learning to love again is a terrifying process when you're not sure your best friend will ever truly forgive you.

    Summary

    Jim and his roommate Hikaru's new neighbor across the street is an enigma. Neither man has ever seen or heard from the person, until one day a package shows up on their doorstep addressed to Jim, with a note scrawled on a Post-It note stuck to the top. This begins a long-running ritual in which Jim and the mysterious neighbor, who he nicknamed Bones, pass each other small gifts and notes across the street several times a week, all without ever speaking in person. Jim feels like they have a connection, and when they finally meet in person they realize that what started with exchanged sticky notes can actually just be the beginning of something really meaningful.
