    Summary

    After the lawsuit, Buck’s still on the outs with most of the team, despite being back a month and apologising almost daily. Waking one morning, and knowing it would be a rough day, Buck relishes with the knowledge that he’d be left alone and treated worse than a probie… except someone’s out with flu and Bobby reluctantly puts him back on calls for the day as a last resort. Something that should make him feel on top of the world ends up feeling like another punishment. Vowing not to let the weight of the day get to him, he tries to keep his head down, only for their first call, Buck’s first in months, end up being one that forces him to relive his past and he reveals things about himself he’d kept secret for ten years.

    Summary

    He’s heading towards the main area where Hen and Chim broke off, not really able to help, but prepared to be an extra pair of hands all the same, when a gun is very suddenly swung in his face.

    It’s enough to lodge his heart in his throat, stopping him in his tracks, feet stumbling a little while his hands come up in an automatic reaction. He hasn’t heard any gunshots, so he’s fairly sure everyone is relatively okay as he’s grabbed by the collar of his turn-out and pulled into the foyer, shoved against one of the giant, dumb, marble pillars.

    the 118 are caught in a very sticky situation and everyone wishes Buck wasn't always the one at the center of it.

    Summary

    Their first hug doesn’t happen at the firehouse.

    It’s at a bar where they’d decided to get a drink after work. Eddie arrives a little after he does once he drops Christopher off at his aunt’s place and when he joins Buck at the table he pulls him into one of those casual, back-slapping kinds of hugs.

    It’s nothing to write home about. It’s friendly, comfortable, but Eddie’s hands are warm on Buck’s back and for the briefest second Buck can feel Eddie’s smile imprinted against his shoulder before it’s over.

    He puts it down to missing Abby that he finds himself thinking about it when he’s trying to fall asleep that night.

    *

    A look at how Buck and Eddie's physical relationship develops from season 2 to season 5 AKA the one with all the hugging.
