Eddie: I know you’re deflecting by making jokes about how hot you are.
Buck, through tears: It’s not a joke, I’m a legit snack!

Buck and Eddie on their first date together:
Buck knocks on the door.
Eddie answers, eyes taking in the flowers held hesitantly in Buck’s hands.
“I normally bring a girl flowers on the first date. Uh... Not really sure what I’m doing here.”
Eddie shrugs his shoulders and takes the flowers, giving them a sniff and recoiling at the strong smell.
“Thanks,” he says, retreating into the house to put them somewhere, coming back with a box in hand. “I normally bring them chocolates,” he admits, handing Buck a box with a red ribbon on it.

It's come to my attention that some folks don't know about Willow and Tara. If you care about Buck and Eddie, it's worth your time to learn about them, especially if you're queer.
Let me tell you a story about a time when queer people, queer women in particular, were essentially non-existent in the media — tv, movies, hardly anywhere. And along came Buffy, which gave us a nuanced, lovely, richly developed love story between two young women. Willow and Tara were main characters, and one of the core couples on the show, for many years. They shared one of the very first lesbian kisses on network television. Believe me when I tell you there was nothing — nothing even remotely close — when it came to queer representation on television at the time. Willow and Tara meant a great deal, to a great number of queer people. Still do.
And then they killed Tara. Like this.
When I tell you the rage and fury that welled up in the wake of Tara's murder. Because this time the queers fought back, demanded more and better stories as atonement. The-powers-that-be had, for the first time, given us something that was ours, making a real effort to tell our stories. So many queer folks felt seen and validated in ways we never had before. And then they killed her. The hurt and grief were real and sting to this day (I fully teared up making this post). But there is no doubt in my mind that the backlash absolutely led to the exponential growth in queer representation that happened after.
Willow and Tara's importance to queer culture — their love story and Tara's death — cannot be overstated. They have a place in the Legendary Queer Canon reserved for very few.
When I tell you that the second Eddie's blood hit Buck's face, I felt whichever queer(s) at 911 were responsible for making this happen — I felt them reaching through the screen to say: let's work through our Willow and Tara trauma together.
These gays are going to live.
I know I am always on my bullshit about how everything 911 does is on purpose. But this? Was intentional. Like nothing I have ever seen. The way they (so lovingly, romantically) filmed Eddie being shot in front of Buck wasn't just an allusion to some other tv show. They paid homage to legendary queer canon.

Eddie sees Buck talking to someone a little too close so he walks up to them like
"Sorry, I need to steal him. We have a thing to do."
Buck just stares at him.
"What thing? I didn't know we have plans."
"Oh yeah, Buck, big plans. I'll tell you about then over there, in private."
After looking adorably confused for a minute, Buck says goodbye to his new friend and lets Eddie lead the way, Eddie already breathing easier.

Thinking about how by Season 4, the show basically demanded that we look at Buck and Eddie through the lens of Bobby and Athena's relationship. How the comparisons are interesting, but so are the contrasts.
Thinking about how of the four of them, Buck is the only one who has not grieved the death of a life partner.
Thinking about grief as an undercurrent for each of their stories, individually and in their relationships. And how grief is always inherent in loving someone completely. How you can either reckon with that grief, with the inevitability of loss, and allow yourself to love and be loved (This is where Eddie is almost at). Or, you can choose one of two paths that do not reckon with the grief: you can keep your walls up, believing you can protect yourself from that grief (both Bobby + Athena, to different degrees), or you can give yourself over entirely and lose yourself when the grief comes (Buck).
Of the four of them, Buck is the one who literally would not survive losing his partner.
Eddie would live for Chris, pure and simple. It's how he's lived nearly his entire adult life, so he's practiced at shutting off parts of himself and moving on. But Buck? Eddie almost died and Buck was actively suicidal. Bobby knew it and Eddie knew it. Did Bobby handle it well? No. But did he clock what Buck was doing? Absolutely. And Eddie's offering of the will was basically a plea: I need you to live, for Christopher, and for me. But I need you to live even if I don't.
Because here's the thing, "we just wanted to go together" is one thing if you are quite elderly and have lived a long and full life together. But Evan Buckley is 30 damn years old. It is not romantic or an act of love. Buck's reaction to possibly losing Eddie was his trauma and self loathing talking. And both he and Eddie have some work to do on this. Complex, painful, meaningful, healing work that they are meant to do together (full on soulmates, there's no way around it).
In contrast, Bobby and Athena need to work on being more vulnerable with each other. There is something to them being older and just having lived more life than Buck and Eddie. Bobby and Athena, in their different ways, still have so many walls up — as much as they love each other, how vulnerable have they allowed themselves to be? To be known and seen, flaws and failures and all? (In contrast to Buck and Eddie...being known and seen in full.) They have survived loss before and would survive it again. And it is a testament to the depth of their love that they are willing to even try, given how much they have suffered.
Bathena have All the Boundaries and Buddie have so few, and I think that is interesting.
Buck hasn't reckoned with the grief inherent in loving Eddie so completely. And my guess is that is what we watched play out in Survivors and where Buck may be stuck for a little while. Because for him to fully love and be loved by Eddie, he has to accept that they may lose each other. Same for Bobby and Athena. Because all relationships end; until the one that ends in death. It is gorgeous and devastating and so so meaningful to love someone in this way.
This is the love story they are telling and I am simply blown away...
So, uh, come talk to me about Bobby, Athena, Buck and Eddie.
