A New Mode of Living - Perpetual Motion (perpetfic) - Band of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
After the war, Carwood goes home, gets gifted something larger than a bread box, and comes to realize the promise he made to Ron is one he wants to keep. [150,502]

[To this day one of the best and longest BoB fic I have ever read. True to character, sweet but not schmaltzy, hilarious, and poignant, this will always be one of my very favorites.]

buffyaddict13: A Destiny that Makes Us Brothers
Skip nods. He feels for his rosary and rubs cool beads beneath sweaty fingers. "Don't suppose either of you guys saw Malark or Penk anywhere, huh?"

"Nah. Aside from you an' Popeye, all I seen are a bunch of cows and dead soldiers. They're makin' me hungry."

Popeye stares at his friend. "Dead soldiers?"

Shifty frowns. "I'm just wonderin', Popeye, were you home nappin' the day God was handin' out brains?"

"He meant the cows, dumbass," Skip says. What he wouldn't give for a steak right about now. Then again, a weapon'd be handy too. [16,500]

falseeeyelashes: and chaos is luck

It was half a lie to Dike on Lipton’s part – he doesn’t really think of home, but he does think of other things, things that make his throat feel too tight and the fear too rich, things like growing old and wool sweaters or a cold beer and wrap-around porches or a dog in a study somewhere, a broken carburetor to be fixed, a clogged drain, Sundays after church, but out here, out here in the cold and the hell and the jagged jaws of opened tree stumps they each feel too far gone for him to firmly grasp, to remember (to imagine as once warm possibilities).


Before, Holland was little more than wooden shoes and giant, reaching windmills, the random stuff of childhood legend, but now just a glancing thought of it is enough to make Buck want to vomit.


They pass through and as a city, it cuts a cruel, alien landscape, all broken windows and dust-coated cobblestone.

kate_everson: Reverse Pathetic Fallacy
“You still with us there, Sarge?” Malarkey looked like hell, gaunt and battered both physically and emotionally, and Lipton immediately saw the absurdity that he would be asking after *him*, when it should so obviously be the other way around.

“Yeah, boy.” His voice was hoarse, his throat sharply sore, but he managed to rummage up a tilt of his mouth upwards. It wasn’t quite a reassuring smile, but it got the point across.

Malarkey responded with a weak smile of his own, and Lipton tried not to be too concerned, even as his thought started to drift in a strange way, that it didn’t even come close to reaching Malarkey’s eyes. Beside Malarkey, Bull had an unlit cigar tucked between his lips, stubbornly keeping it there despite the still-falling snow that prevented it from staying lit. He saw Lipton’s eyes shift from Malarkey to him, and gave Lipton a steady nod in return. [6333]

ex_likethesu695: Each Man Does Not Die
Carwood Lipton, going to war, believes from the very start that he will die. It's a secret he stores away covertly, like the dirty magazines or extra smokes the other men hide in their footlockers. He knows his responsibility to them as soon as he makes sergeant, before most of the other NCOs have even sewn on their stripes. So if sometimes he's lying in his dim bunk on charge of quarters and he wonders how it would feel to take a bullet in the throat, he never says anything. He owes it to these boys, he thinks as he listens to the sound of their slumber behind the door (never considering that most of them are his own age); he owes it to them to keep this watch over their dreams. Let them feel themselves invincible.

garnettrees: Easy Co. Wakes Up Gay
Joe Liebgott woke up gay, thought about for a while, and scratched out "make little Liebgotts" on his list of Things To Do After The War. He then went looking for Webster.

Bull Randalman woke up gay, smoked a cigar, and wondered how many cute enlisted men he could fit into a potato sack.

Cobb woke up gay, but it made absolutely no difference, as no one liked him anyway.

Eugene Roe woke up gay, and was rather pleased. He was, after all, extremely pretty.

Running in Circles - Abyssinia - Band Of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
There is, of all things, a piano in the middle of the street and it twangs angry notes as bullets hit it, demanding an explanation for why it's in the middle of a war. Perconte has no answer for the question that's also running through his head. [5392]

Written in the Stars - Abyssinia - Band Of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
A few weeks in, I wasn't the only one surprised when Lipton managed to field strip an M-1 in under 90 seconds. Sobel was surprised too, but as much as he cursed he couldn't take away the promised early night if Lipton could do it. [9849]

We Never Trained For This At Toccoa - newredshoes - Band Of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
“So,” the cat says at last. “I would like to make it known that this is really far more awkward for me than it could ever be for you.”

Winters goes very still, his hand resting on the Persian’s back. The cat twists on his shoulder and blinks up at him.

“Any chance you could get my Vat 69 open?” [1350]
