    Summary

    “Were you watching me sleep?”

    He doesn’t immediately answer. It’s Tim for yes.

    She’d fallen asleep holding his hand and woken up with him again and it isn’t the morning after the worst day of her life anymore. It feels like what she’s been waiting for. It feels like permission.

    OR - Tim and Lucy (really convincingly) fake date, fall for each other, and attend a wedding. Maybe not in that exact order.

    Summary

    'If anyone were to ask Tim - including Lucy herself - what it’s like to have Lucy stay with him, he’d respond that it's aggravating. And, on paper, it should be. She talks too much and leaves the empty milk cartons right next to the trash can and sings in the shower and she’s tried to cleanse his home with herbs twice. It’s been four days, and he’s already finding himself growling her name under his breath in exasperation more now than he ever did when she was his rookie. '

    OR:
    Lucy needs a place to stay. Tim's got a spare room. Things do not go to plan.

    Summary

    For someone he'd hero-worshipped for so long, Steve Rogers in the flesh is a pretty big disappointment. For one thing, he keeps looking at Tony as though he reminds him of someone else, and even if he never says anything, Tony's pretty sure it's his father. A lifetime of not measuring up to Howard's expectations is more than enough, thank you very much, and he's certainly not going to make an effort to live up to any of Steve's. Steve's pretty clearly failed to live up to his expectations, in any case, and that's not hypocritical at all.

    Summary

    Eddie’s been back at work for about two weeks—his time after quitting had passed in a seemingly idyllic week of spending time with his son which got rudely interrupted by a full-scale mental breakdown that ended with tears and hugs and Buck lovingly bullying him into going to therapy again. Then therapy had brought even more tears and confusion and slowly ballooning financial concerns that culminated in Eddie undertaking the frankly painful process of reapplying to the LAFD and completing an equally painful remedial training course.

    And everything was fine until—Eddie started having a problem.

    (summer break, queer awakenings, and learning to let yourself be happy: a story in four acts)

    Summary

    “I lied,” he says, the words coming out ragged. “Earlier.”

    “What did you lie about?” Buck asks. His tone is mild, edged with curiosity. He doesn’t know what’s coming. 

    For the space of a heartbeat, Eddie considers changing course. Considers backing out. Considers making up something inconsequential. But the lump in his throat has a mind of its own, and the words come out anyway.

    “When I said I’m not in love with you.”
