Buck has always had to work hard to keep two parts of his life separated: his regular, human one from that of the dog he's able to shift into. As a human, he knows that he's in love with his best friend Eddie and that it's never going to happen. A chance encounter in his dog form with a distressed wolf pup might change everything...
The word belongs to his human mind, lost to him while he's in this shape. He searches for it, desperate to call the thing he's leaving behind by its name, but gets distracted by the scent of the earth, warm and wet, full of the forest coming to life in the aftermath of rain.
*Edit I just noticed chapter two was missing the last two paragraphs. That has been fixed.
imeaniguessthatsfine: 5 times someone else witnessed Buddie being very domestic, and 1 time they all did (and it’s like their wedding or something)
Buck and Eddie are acting more and more coupley. Too bad they're not actually together. Hopefully they'll figure it out soon.
In which Buck and Eddie are impulsive idiots who decide going from friends to getting married is a logical thing to do.
“I know you’re awake.”
His best friend is standing inches away from the bed, arms crossed over his chest, looking right into his eyes.
“Were you watching me sleep?”
Eddie’s blush is the only answer Buck needs.
Or 5 times Buck wakes up with Eddie by his side + 1 time Eddie does
