    Summary

    All his life, Eddie never realized that there was an explanation to the way he felt about sex. He had no idea there was a word that encompassed all the feelings that had always been too big and overwhelming for him to name.

    He’d always assumed it was just another thing that was wrong with him. His list of flaws and shortcomings had always been a long one, after all, so it was easy to believe this, too, stemmed from being fucked up and broken beyond repair.

    Summary

    Eddie grins. “Yeah I get that. So can I ask why you applied for the room? No offence but you’re not exactly the kind of candidate I expected.”

    Buck laughs, ducking his head. That’s probably true.

    “I, uh, I’ve been staying at my girlfriend’s place while she’s travelling but um, my sister moved to LA recently and sort of made the point that I could be overstaying my welcome? Or, well- actually she tried to tell me my girlfriend’s cheating on me and I need to get over it and move out of her place.” Buck shakes his head, eyes widening at what he just implied. “She’s not! Cheating, I mean. She’s just- trying to find herself after losing her mom. She just needs a little space, y’know?”

    At least, that’s the excuse Buck’s giving Abby for why she hasn’t called him in over two weeks.

    Eddie nods with a vague sort of expression on his face like he hadn’t expected him to overshare that much. Which, oops.

    *

    In which Eddie decides to rent out his spare room to help with mortgage repayments right around the time Buck decides to move out of Abby's place after some not so gentle prodding from Maddie. It's a coincidence. Or serendipity. Or maybe just really good timing.

    Summary

    Eddie knows that the baggage he drags along behind him is heavy. He thinks that if every time he got hurt, it left a scar on his skin - not just his heart - that he would be unrecognisable by now.

    But Buck has always seen him; he’s seen the scared, and the ugly, and the angry. He’s seen the bruised, and the broken, and the healing. And he’s stayed for every second of it, never once considered walking away, not even when Eddie deserved it.

    Summary

    After growing tired of eating alone in his loft, Buck decides to start a YouTube channel where he records himself eating dinner and telling stories about crazy things his team has encountered on calls. He eventually gains a substantial fanbase, and he is led to the channel of another LA firefighter who uploads informational videos and also casual vlogs with his ten-year-old son. It isn't long before the two start a friendship through messages, both of them secretly hoping it will turn into something more.

    Or, Eddie and Buck are both firefighters/YouTubers and they end up falling in love.
