    Summary

    His hope took a nose dive when he remembered his phone was upstairs on his nightstand. He couldn’t answer, couldn’t call for help. He couldn’t let anyone know that he needed help.

    But someone was calling to check on him. When he didn’t answer, they would know something was wrong and come looking for him. They’d save him. He wouldn’t have to die alone.

    Unless it was someone calling about his car’s extended warranty.

    ...

    when a blackout hits the city, Buck gets a little hurt. the scariest part, though, is just how alone he feels.

    Summary

    For the prompt: "I exist in two places, here and where you are."

    Something happened to Buck in that moment, standing on the street and watching Eddie collapse as if in slow motion as the world fell away and his ears filled with white noise. He went numb and silent, couldn’t feel his own body, moved on pure instinct through everything that came after. He didn’t come back to himself until they reached the hospital, and even then—

    Buck feels like he lost part of himself when he watched Eddie being rolled through the emergency doors and he hasn’t gotten it back. There’s a hollow space in his chest crowding out his lungs so he can’t draw a full breath, squeezing his heart so his blood isn’t circulating properly. He’s a shade. Half-alive. And the other half left on a city street, in an ambulance bay, in a hospital room.

    Summary

    For the prompt: "I felt it shelter to speak to you."

    “Have you...spoken to a therapist? I noticed that your treating physician made a referral for counseling when you were originally discharged, but…”

    Eddie clears his throat roughly. “Yeah, no, I, uh...with the PT schedule and everything else going on, I never followed up with that. But I’ve been fine. It never seemed necessary.”

    “With all due respect, Mr. Diaz,” the doctor says, “you’re in the emergency room because of an acute stress response in which your brain tricked your body into believing you were in danger to such an extent that you thought you were dying. I’m not sure you’re as fine as you think.”

    Summary

    Hogan didn't exactly expect to survive after the Gestapo got through with him. He certainly never expected to wake up after he was lowered into one of Hochstetter's contraptions.

    What he does know is this: he needs to escape. He probably needs to get the kraut who was interred with him out of this pit, too. Hogan needs to find out why he has a squid tattooed on the small of his back and the reason why he has all those blackout spells. As far as he knows, this mountain was supposed to kill him. Karl, too. Hogan can always escape, he knows that. He just doesn't know if he can take another man with him.

    Hogan has no idea that the engineers behind his programming weren't Gestapo. He has no idea that the people he's trusting - the people who call themselves SHIELD - are really HYDRA and they mean to activate the programming buried in his head.

    Summary

    There was a blackout at the Yule Ball. It happened late in the evening. No one saw who did it, quick as a blink as it was, and most of the teachers had either gone to bed or were dozing in a chair in the back of the room. When the lights came on again, all the couples had been switched, and it was Draco Malfoy standing in front of me, hands outstretched in a dancing position and all.

    Summary

    “Wow. So you and Buck are…?” He trails off. And that. That is the comment that causes Eddie’s face to turn bright red. He knows how his spiel sounded, knows what Michael is implying.

    “We’re uh,” he clears his throat, “We’re just friends. He has a girlfriend.”

    Michael hums, tilts his head a bit, and then says, “but is that all you want to be?”

    Summary

    The city was in total darkness but that had nothing on the utter fear that was taking hold of Buck’s heart. The light on his phone was blinking at him expectedly but it wouldn’t do the one thing that he needed it to do. It wouldn’t put him through to Eddie.

    “Buck, it’s going to be okay. No, you need to look at me. You know that no matter where Eddie is or what, if anything, has happened to him, he will fight to come home to you and Christopher. He’s not going to abandon his boys. If 40 feet of wet mud or a sniper can’t take him out, I don’t think a little blackout is going to stop him. I know you’re worried, Buckaroo, but Eddie needs you to find him so you’ve got to focus on that.”

    Buck nodded slowly, pulling his lower lip between his teeth. Heartbroken, that’s what Hen realised he looked like. The same wild fear from the night at the well but it was more vacant, more lost. As if Buck didn’t trust himself to save Eddie.

    “Hey, kiddo, did I ever tell you about what happened to me during the earthquake?” she asked softly.

    Summary

    You know that episode where a bat invades the office and Jim pranks Dwight into thinking he might be turning into a vampire? Well, what if that wasn't a prank?

    ---

    “What, what’s wrong?” Karen asked him, her calculating eyes trying to catch his gaze to find out what his plan was.

    “Geez, were you gonna warn me? I mean did you just microwave it or something? How long did you do it for, an hour?” Jim asked.

    “Jim, what are you talking about?” Karen questioned.

    “Your bread, it’s white-hot,” Jim said as if it were obvious.

    Karen looked absolutely baffled. “That garlic bread is stone-cold. Hey, what’s going on?”
