this post has some great meta and i didnt want to rb it just to make it buddie but like.
now im thinking abt the difference we're gonna see in eddie when he finally kisses buck. im thinking abt him letting go of his self control and reaching for the first time, and it's to take buck's face in his hands, to kiss him so solidly.
im thinking about buck being so SO hesitant, careful as he takes hold of eddie bc he has to be sure its what eddie wants first and im thinking about eddie breaking their kiss just to say, "touch me" and going back for more and buck not needing to be told twice
im thinking about them finally getting the love and attention they deserve from the right person and im going a little insane

It's seems like the quote by Thomas "you don't find it, you make it " is the guidelines for the show's relationship. When we think about it deeply, we understand that you don't have to work hard for love, that love should come naturally with harmony. I honestly think about it as friendship that blooms to love. Basically friends to lovers. And for me that kind of stories is my favorite. Because being a friend is accepting the other person, trusting them and love them unconditionally. And love and romance is just a bonus that can make the connection more deeply profound. And look at Bobby and Athena, Maddie and Chimney, Hen and Karen. All of them have a foundation of friendship and they level up to love. It's so beautiful to watch these developments..
Now about Buck and Eddie, there is no doubt that they are meant for each other and the writers are aware of that. Their love and carefulness for each other is showing through their own words and actions.
Which brings me to the last episode (5x03). After watching the break up scene, when Eddie used the words "work... the idea of us...mess" I couldn't stop thinking about that. Because Eddie is mostly a man of actions and maybe feel more comfortable to express himself through those actions as well. And when he has to use his words, he chooses them very thoughtfully. So it got me thinking maybe Eddie knows about this quote.
It could be like he overheard the conversation or Buck told him that one day. Because that quote is too powerful to forget about it.
With this acknowledge, it could be like Eddie for whole season 3 didn't think about getting back to dating pool, cus’ after what happened with Shannon, he maybe learned that he should let love come to him, when the time feels right. After all, love and marriage shouldn't feel like ”work”. And he met Ana at Christopher's school and yet he didn't make a move on her. In the meantime Eddie kept choosing Buck over and over, perhaps unconsciously, perhaps not? And the interesting thing is that Eddie didn't hesitate to put Buck in his will after the wall incident because he trusted him that deeply. time passes by and the pandemic happened, and suddenly Eddie saw Ana again and maybe he took this a sigh (ironically, cus’ this guy was so stubborn and he doesn't believe in jinxes nor screams from univers) and decided to “make it work” with her. Maybe for Eddie, in order to "make it "he has to put some offers on this recipe, he has to compromise on his wishes and needs because he was thinking about Christopher always. Even if he did care about her, it seems like he already knew that it was mistake and yet decided to ignore his gut. All of that is happening because he has an idea of how this love or family should be. And when he finally has to face with the reality (even his own body/mind knows him better lol) or acknowledge that he took this in a wrong way, he slowly started to accept that he should be following his happiness. And with that being said, he would know that he already found it and had make it too. It's just happening so naturally and smoothly that romance is a (necessary, because they're fool and idiots who is in love with each one and we know them better) bonus. Eddie has just to be brave to open his eyes and heart. Buck is his the only one, his home and his soulmate.
Thomas's quote is about true love and the truthfully meaning of the life itself. Because life and love is a mess once you found a reason to fighting for, together. Because you don't expected to change for each other but only change together, in the best way. Just like you "make it home " with someone that you trust deeply and willing to do anything unconditionally. And you love them so much that you will die with them on the same day because your love for each other is your force of life.
And I think Eddie started to understand that .. Buck too, but this is other story..
