In Austin, Buck finds the support he needs to gain perspective on his life and relationships.

Please see the notes tab on the main series page for information about inspiration, and details about COVID in this story. Information about timeline and canon divergence points can be found there as well. There’s also some content about my perspective on Maddie Buckley and Taylor Kelly.

I fiddled with the timeline of events in Season 1 of Lone Star a bit, but the timeline is pretty vague and inconsistent anyway.

My Spanish comes straight from Google translate. If it’s wrong, it’s wrong. Life goes on. Any Spanish phrases should have translation if you hover over them. Except for Dios. Eddie uses it a lot, and I figure most people get it.

  1. I’ve been looking forward to these stories since art claims. Looks great!

  2. I can already tell this series will be one of those fics I revisit often. So damn good. Thank you.
