    Summary

    “I have been in love with you for years. I’ve—seen you, happy, angry, grieving, infuriating—every way, I’ve seen you, and you see me, you’ve always seen me even when I didn’t want you to, and I’ve never done this before but I’ve wanted to, with you, forever.” He’s breathing heavily. Buck is looking at him, something like—wonder, maybe, in his eyes, like no one’s ever said these things to him before and maybe—maybe they haven’t. And Eddie wants to kiss him, Eddie wants to fuck him, Eddie wants to hold his hand and cradle him close like he’s goddamn Olive Oyl and never let anything bad touch him ever again. “We’ve been going slow since the day we met, and I—I’m ready.”

    Summary

    For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known. - 1 Corinthians 13:12

     

     

    Eddie Diaz learns a lot as a kid.

    Boys aren’t soft.

    Boys don’t cry.

    Boys don’t kiss boys.

    As he gets older, he realizes that everything has exceptions. Boys can be soft sometimes. Boys can cry sometimes. And some boys kiss other boys.

    But Eddie likes kissing girls. And since he likes kissing girls, that’s the end of the story.

    Isn’t it?

    [Or: the one with all the repression]

    Summary

    It starts with Buck trading in his beloved Jeep.
    It ends with a confession, a kiss, and Buck trading in his apartment too.

    Or: If you didn't think Buck research binges wouldn't eventually take him to safety specs for his car, you don't know Buck.

    Summary

    Of course, all of that comes to a grinding halt when he stops outside the locker room to find arguably one of the hottest guys he’s ever seen getting changed right by his locker.

    He stands there, gaping and trying desperately to get his mind out of the gutter – but Jesus, those abs – when someone bumps his shoulder and he turns to find Hen sidling up to him.

    “Enjoying the view?” she asks with a knowing smirk.

    Buck raises an eyebrow, feeling the corners of his mouth turn up in a smirk of his own. “He from B shift or something?”

    Hen’s about to answer him when Bobby appears on his other side. “That’s Eddie Diaz, our new recruit.”

    Buck’s brain does some approximation of a record scratch and he whirls around to face Bobby. “New recruit? Why?”

    In which Eddie joins the 118 during season 1 instead of season 2 and Buck has a lot to say about it. AKA Eddie meets Buck 1.0.
