    Summary

    There are missing pieces of it for Eddie - sections that he doesn’t remember. For Buck, there’s not a single thing about that day that he can forget.

    Summary

    "You know, this is pretty permanent."

    It’s not what Eddie meant to say, but apparently he was thinking it. It’s not a warning, he knows that much, and there are no doubts in his mind. He suspects it might be a question, but he’s not quite sure what he’s asking.

    “Yeah, but then I figured that you’re kind of it for me.”

    Summary

    Eddie's PTSD is just that little bit worse and when he moves to Los Angeles, instead of joining the LAFD, he joins dispatch.

    Which is all good and fine, except for this one firefighter he keeps ending up talking to.

    Summary

    He knows he could have always just left on his own, prayed that by their next shift, they both would have forgotten and ignored the events of the night. Only the curiosity that latched onto Eddie’s brain was too tempting to ignore, or maybe he was just a cruel masochist, but he needed to know.

    Come over?’ Eddie had asked. A simple request. A question he had long known the answer before the words were spoken aloud.

    Buck had nodded, closing his locker with a soft, tired smile, and followed Eddie back home, with the unspoken tension lingering close behind.

    ====

    The height difference between Buck and Eddie is only two inches, which isn't a significant one by any means- until it is.

    Summary

    Looking back, she should have realized something was up when she spent the first night with Eddie. They entered the bathroom together, and Ana was touched when she saw the two toothbrushes in the cup. Eddie grabbed one of them, and Ana assumed the other one was there for her to take, Eddie must have placed it there. But when she tried to grab it, Eddie stopped her:

    “Oh no. That- That one is Buck’s.” He said, opening the top cabinet and giving her a new one. Ana thought it was a bit weird, but she didn’t comment on it.

    She almost forgot about it completely, but months later she would look back at that moment and just… know.

    [The title is pretty much self-explanatory.]
