    Summary

    “So literally just—ask him,” Hen says. “With words. Say ‘hey, Buck, we’ve been functionally living together for years, want to actually move in’?”

    “No,” Eddie tells the tabletop.

    “I’ve gotta say,” Chim says and, by the sound of it, puts away the magazine he wasn’t reading. “This seems like a crisis of your own making.”

    “How?” Eddie says, into a patch of something sticky they should probably wipe up before Bobby gets here.

    “You’re the one who wants to ask him to move in via meme.”

    or, the one in which embracing the meme life turns out to be more complicated than eddie expected.

    Summary

    In hindsight, he knows that his fate was sealed the moment the words left his mouth; the moment Jaskier’s voice broke a little when the final words of goodbye were uttered. He had no way of knowing, then, but should have seen it coming all the like, should have suspected it would happen because Fate, capital F and all, fucking hates him, apparently, and once it starts its little game with you, it never bothers to stop. He should have known that and acted on it because when Jaskier’s footsteps grew quieter and further away as the bard walked back to the camp and then down the slope of the mountain, that was it. A rustle in his chest growing in intensity alongside immediate regret.

    Summary

    Maybe the worst part, Jaskier muses as he stares into his tankard, is that it’s all so horribly... cliché.

    The inconsequential companion – tossed aside the moment that the truly intended, cosmically wedded couple finally meet. Because what chance does he stand – what role could he ever play – that would permit Destiny to place him on the same stage – let alone in the same scene – as witchers and sorceresses?

    Summary

    “You forgot this at my place,” he says, dropping a set of keys into Eddie’s hand. “Figured you’d need them to get home.”

    “Oh,” Eddie says, looking down at his own hand for a second before aiming a grin up at Tommy, who’s got one or two inches on him. “Thanks.”

    Tommy’s resulting grin fades into a wince when he glances over Eddie’s shoulder and catches the surprise on Chim’s face. “Sorry, is it, like, disrespectful to wear hats in here? Like in school?” He tugs the beanie off, and he’s got dirty blond curls that tumble loosely over his forehead.

    Chim blinks, then blinks again, because with the hair Eddie's...friend almost looks like—No. He can’t look like Buck, actually, because that would be the funniest thing to ever happen in the history of humankind and Chimney would have to quit his job to dedicate the rest of his life to laughing about it.

    -

    Or, five times Eddie dates a guy a little too similar to Buck, and one time he dates the real deal.

    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.

    Eddie's dad gets sick. Buck goes with him and Christopher to El Paso.
