    Summary

    Buck doesn’t think that if he were to say, “I’m in a bad place”, that anyone would turn him away. Really, he doesn’t. The 118 has too many good, kind people for that.

    But every time he wants to open his mouth, to say something, to reach out to Eddie or Bobby or Hen or Chim, he hears Eddie yelling, “you’re exhausting.”

    —you’re exhausting, you’re exhausting, you’re exhausting—

    So each day he does his job and he laughs and he jokes and he pretends he’s the care-free goofball he’s always been. And each day he packs away his bruises and his worries, takes them home to his empty loft with its quiet rooms, and licks his wounds in silence.

    Summary

    He just never thought it would come down to a bumper sticker.

    Really. Of all the things in their line of work. The dangers on the job, the dangers of natural disasters, the dangers of psychopaths trying to kill the Buckleys and blood clots.

    And Eddie breaks over a bumper sticker.

    (In his defense, he was coming off of a 24-hour shift and still had to go pick up Christopher from Pepa’s and it’s Buck.)

    Summary

    He casts his gaze to the right, to the voice he’d heard a minute ago and the hand still on his shoulder.

    And, well. Okay. So Buck may have just been unconscious for an indeterminable length of time but he doesn’t think he’s exaggerating when he says the guy leaning over his bedside is one of the most attractive people he’s seen in a long time. Especially when his face splits into a smile that rivals the brightness of the hospital lights that almost just fucking blinded Buck a second ago.

    “Welcome back, hotshot,” the guy says and it sounds fond – familiar – and Buck honestly has no idea who this guy is.

    His brown hair is dishevelled on top of his head and his eyes look tired but then Buck notices the LAFD t-shirt so- alright. Someone from the firehouse, maybe? But he’s pretty sure he’d remember a face like that.

    After getting hurt on a call, Buck wakes up thinking it's 2018. AKA Buck can't remember who Eddie is but he's pretty sure everyone's lying when they say they're "just friends."

    Summary

    Evan Buckley has never once been given flowers in his life.

    That is, until he mentions it in a fit of self-pity at the firehouse. Then they're everywhere. What he can't work out is where they're coming from.

    (or: Buck mentions never getting flowers before, and a certain someone decides to remedy that.)

    Summary

    Buck volunteered to get into the ambulance with him, knowing the risks. He's pinching the guy's skin and saying, "Take it out," and Eddie, for the first time since leaving the military, feels it - a connection. A kindred spirit. A purpose that tethers him to reality. A person relying on him to get the job done.

    (or - a list of things Eddie Diaz couldn't give up on, including himself.)
