    Summary

    It’s just sex. People say all kinds of things they don’t necessarily mean during sex. It’s not a big deal, even if Buck is going to spend roughly the rest of his entire life thinking about it and he’s probably going to go home tonight and cry into his pillow because the universe saw fit to give him Eddie Diaz in all ways except the one that matters the most.

    Summary

    Buck stood in that same spot next to Hen for a long time after Eddie left. He didn’t know what he was feeling or why every part of his body was suddenly numb. He might have been in shock. He only moved when Hen nudged him and asked if he was okay. Even then, moving felt like trying to swim through quicksand.

    It wasn’t until Buck got home and fell into bed next to Taylor that he started hurting. And he hasn’t stopped hurting since.

    Summary

    The corner of Buck’s mouth quirks. “Thanks for picking up my call,” he whispers.

    Eddie feels a sudden pang in his chest at these words. He gives in to the urge to reach out and brush his fingers over Buck’s forehead, just gently enough that he could deny doing it if he really had to.

    “I’ll always pick up,” he whispers back.

    Summary

    “Okay, but what are the rules?”

    Ravi stares. “The rules for…?”

    “Casual sex.”

    Ravi continues to stare. It is 5:39 in the morning.

    Buck keeps talking, unprompted. “I can’t just go back to Buck 1.0. Bobby will not give me a third chance if I steal the ladder truck again.”

    “You don’t need to steal the ladder truck to have casual sex.”

    Buck huffs, as if Ravi is intentionally missing the point. “Well, yeah, but who knows what Buck 1.0.2 would be capable of.”

    Ravi shakes his head. “I really need the software updates to stop.”

     

    or, an au where buck broke up with taylor before 5b, ravi and buck become (actually platonic) friends with benefits, and ravi, eddie, and buck all go on a journey of self-discovery that ends with them all getting what they need

    Summary

    “Why did you come?”

    Eddie’s throat works again. His jaw tightens and releases. Finally, his eyes flick up to meet Buck’s and they’re—

    Shadowed. Haunted. Wild.

    “You got hit by a car.”

    Buck squeezes his arms gently. “Only a little bit.”

    But even to his own ears, the attempt at lightness falls flat.

    Eddie closes his eyes, his fingers curling into the fabric of Buck’s shirt like he can’t help himself. “Don’t. Don’t joke about—”

    “I’m sorry,” Buck says immediately. “I’m sorry. But—hey, I’m okay. You know I’m okay, you were there. Chim was more banged up than I was.”

    “I was there,” Eddie repeats.

    [Or: after Buck’s near-miss with the car, he can’t sleep. Neither can Eddie.]
