    Summary

    Buck was back for a week when he realized that nothing he did was going to make his team forgive him.

    He was back for a month when he finally stopped trying.

     

    (Or, post-lawsuit, the team doesn't forgive him, and Buck falls into a very dark headspace. Cue Maddie being a good sister.)

    Summary

    By the time he registers that there is now blood rolling down the side of his face, Buck is being pulled up by the gunman, the weapon jammed against the side of his head and an arm wrapped around his neck as they look up to the loft, where the team stands, frozen in shock. 

    He'd hoped that they would've heard his warning and run, but clearly, they hadn't. 

     

    (Or, post-lawsuit, two people decide that today is the day to threaten the 118 at gunpoint.)

    Summary

    spoilers for "Survivor" S4 Ep14

    Finale prompt: Everyone is back at work and it seems fine, until Buck accidentally gets sprayed in the face with water from a spray bottle or the mist setting on the hose? Either way he just goes silent and stands there vacant as he flashes back to that awful day when something worse sprayed on him. Then his legs are giving out from under him and Bobby or Chim barely catches him before he smashes his head. Eddie is stunned as he realizes everything. It takes Buck days to come out of this state.

    Summary

    Now, tweaked beyond belief, shoving his tongue down the throat of some girl with her hands on his ass, two leftover lines ready on the ceramic lip of the disgusting club bathroom sink, and a disgusting sour drip in the back of his throat, Buck knows that he’s really not strong. And he’s starting to doubt that he was ever really as strong as he thought he was, because it feels like he was never meant to be sober, never meant to be six years clean.

    It feels like he’s alone in the silence again.
