    Summary

    “I’m not even in the neighborhood of mad,” he says, instead of vomiting any of the thousand feelings warring inside him. “But Buck. This would’ve—this took you hours.”

    “I’m good at multitasking,” Buck says, and Eddie can practically hear him shrugging over the phone. “I did all the cooking after I put Chris to bed, and then I got up a little earlier to get the cleaning and laundry done. It was nothing.”

    Eddie’s starting to suspect he’ll have to wait for Buck to come back to make him understand that, actually, it kind of was everything.

    or, eddie has a tupperware-induced emotional crisis.

    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

    Buck said, "Look, I'm sorry I overheard that because it's personal, and you should be able to decide who gets to have that part of you." Eddie came out of his hunch a little and looked him in the eyes, and Buck felt a zing of giddy accomplishment. It maybe made him stupid. "But to be honest, I'm really flattered that Pepa thought a punk like me could get a guy like you."

    Eddie's eyes went huge, and under the sodium lights Buck could see his ears turning red.

    Shit. Back off, back off, Buck told himself. He said, "I mean, you look like you know how to file your taxes," and immediately wanted to smack himself in the face.

     

    Just two strangers hanging out after a tsunami, talking about being in the closet.

    Summary

    After Eddie gets shot, Buck confesses his love. From there, things get a little out of hand.

    ***

    Buck breathes for a moment, then sets his shoulders. "Eddie, there's something I have to tell you."

    "Do you?" Eddie asks flatly, still alarmed and doing his best to hide it. "I would've never guessed."

    Buck swallows. "Eddie, I love you."

    "Are you softening the blow, or buttering me up? Because, I've got to tell you, I'm still very worried regardless," Eddie tells him.

    "No, you don't understand. I love you. I'm currently in love with you," Buck says as evenly as possible, and even then, his voice wobbles precariously there for a moment. He exhales. "You don't have to worry about it, though, because I've processed it and decided to—to find relief in telling you before moving on and moving forward."

    Eddie stares at him. No response at all.

    Well, at least he's not freaking out.
