    Summary

    As it turns out, Buck is standing on the porch, holding his phone over his head. He’s obviously drunk, pink in the face, his overshirt tied around his waist. His eyes are closed for a second, but when he blinks them open, they look a little glassy.

    Eddie blinks a few times, like that’s going to make what he’s seeing make sense, but nothing else suddenly appears to give him context. He does realize that he recognizes the song, though, and it’s - it’s Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.”

    Summary

    The route itself is pretty simple. From their apartment in Scarborough to Christopher’s school, it’s a bus ride and a trip on Line 2, and then from the school to SickKids, it’s just another few stops on the train and a transfer to Line 1. They’ve got it down to a routine, him and Chris; back home, Eddie could never quite figure out the transit system, but despite all its many, many flaws, the TTC seems to have their back.

    It could have warned him about the guy, though.

     

    or, eddie and chris meet buck on the train.

    Summary

    “Are you?” Buck asks. “Happy about me scaring off everyone I go out with?”

    Eddie frowns, and his hand comes up to circle Buck's wrist before he's even aware of it. “Buck, that's not—”

    “Because I do,” Buck says, and he starts trembling, tangible where their skin is pressed together. “I scare them off. Do you really think I'm bad enough that no one ever wants a second date?”

    in which buck tries dating, and eddie has an embarrasing number of oh moments.

    Summary

    His Google search history leading up to Hen and Karen’s vow renewal looks like this:

    How to stop being attracted to your best friend
    Why am I attracted to my best friend
    Why am I attracted to my best friend + man
    Why are arms so attractive on men
    How to make my house carry-proof
    How do I tell my best friend to keep his shirt on
    Why does my best friend keep yawning
    Yawning remedies
    Dry lip remedies
    Slip-resistant dish gloves
    Slip-resistant dish gloves floral pattern

    And then he just spent the next hour finding and ordering stupid dish gloves for Buck, because Google, it turns out, does not always have the answer, and leaves Eddie with more questions than before (like: does Buck have sleep apnea, actually, and if so, should he be seeing someone for it?).

    --

    or; buck moves in with eddie while taylor finds a new place, and prompts what feels like puberty 2.0 for eddie diaz.
