Weirdly the first Buddie vibe I got was when Eddie said he had a kid and Buck did that goofy "I LOVE kids" line. Like...who cares that you love kids, Buck? It's not like he's asking you to live with him! 😂
Buck was so impressed with Eddie after he got over his initial jealousy. I'm convinced Eddie has been his bisexual awakening. He played off that "boy crush" comment from Maddie but inside, I'd like to think that Buck was secretly wondering why he couldn't stop talking/thinking about Eddie (while also slowly acknowledging that Eddie wasn't the first time he'd felt that way about a guy). While Buck is very open about a lot of things, I think that because he has always had that voice saying he wasn't good enough, being attracted to men would freak him out a little. So, as long as he was also attracted to women, he might ignore that attraction to men or put off thinking about it or chalk it up to really strong hero worship.
Under the cut is how I would go about outing both Buck and Eddie as bisexual in the same episode
Anyway, Buck has this far assumed that Eddie could never be anything but straight so his crush on him (like all of his other crushes on guys throughout his life) can remain irrelevant until it fades. But then the topic somehow comes up early in s5 while the whole 118 is in the firehouse and Eddie just...admits to everyone that he's bisexual. He's known since high school but where (and when) he grew up, there weren't any actual gay couples to emulate. And all the high school guys he messed around with were closeted and wanted to stay that way. It was easier then (and after taking custody of Chris) to date women.
Buck is shocked af because...well, he doesn't know why. It just never would have occurred to him that Eddie was anything but straight. However, because Eddie is so open about it, during that same discussion with the 118, Buck maybe asks some things that suggest he's questioning. Eddie is surprised, and Hen gives Buck some answers while Eddie is still stunned. Before Eddie can recover and say something, they're called out to a fire/emergency.
Then, towards the end of the episode, Eddie and Buck are together by the lockers (lmao, and there's your Glee reference in this meta) and they have a...conversation that is charged with longing from each side but where nothing concrete is said in regards to possible crushes. Eddie gives the advice he was too shocked to give earlier. Buck reacts in his usual straightforward fashion. But they're more hesitant around each other than they typically are and you can see them kind of feeling each other out. It ends with Buck saying that even though he doesn't plan on dating any dudes right away because of Taylor, it's nice to know this thing about himself. And Eddie says "Know? I thought you were just questioning" And Buck just kind of smiles and shrugs, then leaves. He has a date with Taylor.
And it's finally at that date with Taylor that he admits that he thinks he might be bi - is that a problem? Taylor says no and means it genuinely - as long as this doesn't mean he's going to start sleeping with guys while he's with her (it's a joke but not really because the widening crack in their relationship is that they don't trust each other and, at best, trust the other one to be untrustworthy - Buck because Taylor is loyal to her ambitions and Taylor because Buck is loyal to the 118). They have a laugh at the idea of Buck cheating, and then once they've recovered, you can see Buck is lighter and happier because of his admission. But then Taylor asks him what brought this revelation about and Buck looks thoughtful. We don't get an answer but instead cut to the next scene which is Eddie getting Christopher ready for bed. I'd include a brief scene where Eddie either came out to Christopher or where you could infer from the bedtime story he was going to tell him that he was about to come out.
And that's it. In a following episode, I'd have Eddie interact with Michael and his husband, maybe take Christopher for a play date with Harry. At that point, I might have Eddie confide in Michael about Buck (or at least hint that there's someone he's interested in). But since so much of the series has been devoted to Buck growing up, I like the idea of him going from questioning to bi over the course of an episode. I like Eddie playing a role in it. And I like Eddie having accepted his sexuality but not being super open about it for reasons that have more to do with his current situation than with shame or guilt (shows never approach homophobia in minority communities with any nuance and I doubt 911 would be an exception, so I would almost rather they not talk about any homophobia Eddie has faced in that context).

guys gUys GuYs GUYS. i’ve figured out why season 2 eddie and season 3 eddie feel so different to me.
a heterosexual™ (or at least thinks he is)
but this man?
this man scoffs at the idea of being straight
i just feel this so deep in my bones. it’s hard to explain. some of u may feel different and that’s 100% valid, but this is my truth.
(in all seriousness i know there’s actually a lot more complexity to it bc s2 & s3 eddie are dealing with different things. but still...am i wrong?)

hello dear 💛! From the second I discovered your work, I fell in love. Your writing style and hcs are just so niche and dark 💛💛 I love it all. I actually remember seeing an earlier post of yours mentioning that bi!eddie wasn't really up your alley and that's fine! I'm just wondering if you could consider a bi! eddie that still retains all the sweetness and sensitivity that he should rightfully have (also him being a total bottom, even if it's women he's in the sack with)
Hi love! Thank you so much for your beautiful words, that really means so much to me. I love exploring the darker side of romance, with the jealously, obsession and intensity that so often comes with it. Richie and Eddie always felt like the perfect lens for this, with everything they’d been through together.
But yes, honestly, I really don’t see Eddie as bisexual and never have. I know this has been a hotly debated issue throughout fandom, whether Eddie and Richie should be read as gay or bisexual, and while I think there’s validity in reading Richie as bi (if you’re taking how he’s written in the book into consideration too), I’ve only ever seen Eddie as gay. In the book it’s evident he has no romantic interest in girls or women; he doesn’t have the crushes that the other boys do; he recoils from Bev in the sewers; and it’s obvious he only marries Myra because she’s the closest thing he can have to his mother. I think Eddie is deeply repressed and has been since he was a child (his fear of falling ill and of being dirty can be seen as a deeply engrained fear of homosexuality, while his encounter with the leper can be seen as a fear of AIDs). Plus his strongest relationships have always been with other men, like Bill and Richie, showing that Eddie’s attracted to masculinity, and that he finds his dynamic with other boys thrilling and comforting, in contrast to the clinging and overly controlling relationship he has with his mother.
Sorry haha, this answer got long and serious! At the same time, I’m not an authoritarian. This is my reading of Eddie as a fictional character because of the way he’s depicted in the book, film and miniseries, but that doesn’t mean other people have to agree with me! I joke about hating bi Eddie, but it’s your decision how you choose to unravel how he’s written and what sexuality you feel suits him. I think fandom has become far too strict and severe over the last few months, and the last thing I want to do is tell other people how to view characters they enjoy. If it helps, I do think Eddie would still be sensitive and soft if he were with women, that wouldn’t change, but personally I can’t see Eddie as bi. But I won’t admonish you if that’s how you see him either 💛

lol I said it before eddie would never outwardly express his emotions like buck.
he was brought up being told to: ‘man up and get on with it’
He and buck are completely different emotionally, it would be incredibly ooc for eddie to freak out like buck did in eddie begins, so stop hating on the emotionally repressed bi.

The venom series will forever be an S tier franchise to me solely due to the sheer number of movie critics that just don’t understand why people would want to watch Tom Hardy and this alien monstrosity be together

And on October 1st, 2020, Sony proudly stood up and said “We love gay tentacle porn, and we’re willing to bet $110 million that you horny bitches do too.”
And they were right.
