    Summary

    He puts the truck in park in front of Eddie’s childhood home. Christopher shifts in the back, already unbuckling his seatbelt. Eddie is frozen with his jaw set, eyes hard and unblinking as they bore holes through the windshield. Buck was here once before, after that relief trip to Texas, but he is under no illusions that this time will be similar. For one, he doesn’t have the buffer of other firefighters to hide behind. This isn’t a visit that will last a couple hours, and so the sugary, superficial niceties will eventually crumble when it’s mid-way through the week and he’s still hanging around. There is also the shadow of everything that has happened since the wildfires skulking behind them, waiting to be found out.

    But, this is Eddie and Christopher, needing him to have it together, so he paints on a smile and squeezes Eddie's knee and slides out of the truck.

    Summary

    “It’s really casual, but he’s sweet, Evan,” she says, fiddling with her fork. “I like talking to him, and I think that you’d actually really like talking to him, too.”

    (Or: in an AU where Eddie Diaz really does join Station 6 instead of the 118, Maddie Buckley manages to meet--and fall for--him first. (Evan Buckley somehow still falls harder.))

    Summary

    eddie's not entirely sure he believes in getting help, at least not for himself. there's only so much healing to be had for a body torn apart by bullets, for a mind that's only half there, for a man who's been leaving pieces of himself behind all his life with nothing to take their place.

    except, as it turns out, falling apart happens in increments, and healing does, too: it happens when you gnaw a hole in your lip trying to keep quiet only to have the words escape; when you realize that the ghost you've been seeing out of the corner of your eye is yourself; when your best friend smiles, and you allow it to take your breath away.

    it happens through the smallest of things: bird feeders, and cacti, and pasta shapes.

    meanwhile, the world goes on.

    (or: the entity often affectionately referred to as the unrepression fic.)

    Summary

    “Crisis averted,” he says, and bites his lip to get the sting in his eyes to go away. He’s still a little rattled about Oklahoma, is all.

    They’ll settle into being together. Into being in love.

    or, buck learns a thing or two about the difference between a love that is spoken, and a love that is felt.
