    Summary

    Buck walks toward Jee-Yun’s room, still talking, and Christopher trails after him, asking excited questions in response, and Eddie’s smile grows. He wants this forever. Everything, every part of it; Buck, Christopher, and him—that’s all he needs. And—

    Oh. Oh no. He shuts his eyes for a moment, inhaling sharply.

    He’s looking at Buck, and feeling something strictly not platonic at all.

    or: Eddie needs to learn how to let himself feel, and one step at a time, he learns how to do just that. (And he falls in love with Buck along the way.)

    Summary

    TK shakes his head. “It’s not like that. It’s not sexual or even romantic. He’s my friend. God, I think he might be my best friend.” Paul grunts and TK squeezes his shoulder. “After you, of course. It was an accidental meeting, really. I couldn't sleep one night about a year ago and fell down the rabbit hole a bit and ended up on this forum about modern queer literature--or the lack thereof--and his posts were really deep and insightful so I messaged him and he messaged me back and well….now I feel like I can’t go a single day without talking to him.”

    “What’s his name?”

    TK shrugs. “I don’t know. We don’t do that. No names, no pictures. Nothing personal.”

    Paul blinks at him. “He could be a thirteen year old girl.”

    “He’s not.”

    “Or an eighty five year old man.”

    Summary

    A knocking at the door sent him back on his feet, swaying toward the loft entrance. It opened before he could get there, however, and he stopped where he was, a furious Jee Yun screaming in his ears as Eddie Diaz, not Albert Han, walked in.

    "You look like you're having fun." Eddie's eyebrow was raised and his mouth quirked in a teasing smile.

    "Eddie...?" Buck's momentary shock was interrupted as Jee let out another wail. "Um, sorry, this isn't the best time at the moment, but Albert--"

    "--has a date tonight and sent me as his relief." Eddie reached out and plucked Jee Yun from Buck's arms. "And you have a date with your shower and a few hours' sleep."

    "I--no, it's okay, I know you just got off shift--"

    "Buck." Eddie shifted Jee to one arm, and the other rested on Buck's chest, over his pattering heartbeat. He met Buck's eyes, his own calm despite the bundle of adorable chaos still screaming bloody murder into his shoulder. "Go shower."

    Summary

    Eddie looks at her, and he knows he isn’t in love with her. He knows that he could try to be in love with her for the rest of his life and he’d never feel it. That her touch will never send a spark down his spine, her gaze will never make him feel like he’s being seen, seeing her with Christopher never makes his heart swell – he’s not in love with her. He never was, never will be.
