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.]

Expect to Be Scratched - dome_epais - Band of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
He ends up calling the cat Nix.

It’s an accident of nostalgia; one moment he’s thinking of what Nixon must be getting up to these past few months, and the next, the cat is perched on his thigh with his backside to him, demanding attention without acknowledgement.

Winters tells the cat, “Oh, sure, and everything on your schedule, too.” And then the cat is just Nix in his mind. [2004]

sound_of_bells: and eventually the stars will be revealed
Really the only adverse effects of nearly dying are his skull-splitting headache and the sudden urge to empty the entire contents of his stomach every hour or so along the roadside. This process is less than attractive, especially when he’s got no food in his stomach to retch up a few hours in and just hacks up discolored spittle. He thinks drily that he has come a long, long way from Yale, and wishes he had some water on him to rinse out his mouth. He peers into the neck of his flask apprehensively and this might be the first time in his life that Lewis Nixon hasn’t been eager to knock back some alcohol.

“Here,” Winters mutters, and passes him his canteen.

“Thanks,” Nixon says. Winters doesn’t leave, even after Nixon has sloshed and spit and given the canteen back to him, stands hovering like a mother hen, and Nixon has to crack a smile at that, the image of Winters as a bird as unappealing as the chicken. [2767]

septicimic: Broken Glass
Sometimes he looks at the sky, and it's not the same sky he left behind in Pennsylvania, not the same sky he dropped out of over France and Holland. And sometimes Nix catches him when he's somewhere else, and brings him back; and sometimes it takes a crash, and blood on his fingertips.

destina: Finding Home
The telegram arrives at the nitration works on a Tuesday morning.


Nix folds the telegram twice with a shaking hand and puts it carefully in his pocket.

At 4:15 Nix shoulders on his overcoat and heads downtown, worrying the folded piece of paper in his pocket. Already the edges are worn, smooth against his fingertips.

The train is a few minutes late. When it stops at the station, it discharges a thin stream of passengers, mostly women in veiled hats with children clinging to their hands. Dick is last off, just another indistinct grey blur of overcoat, trousers, shiny black shoes, but then he lifts his hat to reveal a shock of red hair. Nix pulls in a slow breath and starts toward him. Dick turns, as if he knows right where to find Nix. Always has, Nix thinks. [4900]

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.

Hope For Heaven Where We Land - tearupthesky - Band Of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
"You seeing what I'm seeing, Major Winters? Private O'Keefe!" Nix roars gleefully. He breaks out of Dick's hold and stomps up the front steps, prodding the dazed kid with his boot. "Private, what's your first goddamn general order?" O'Keefe struggles to his feet, scrambling like a crab, nearly wetting himself on the spot when his eyes fix on Dick over Nix's shoulder.

"No excuses!" Nix shouts when the kid opens his mouth. "Get your ass up that hill, double time!" he orders, gesturing vaguely toward the Alps. He taps his bare wrist in O'Keefe's face emphatically. "The clock's ticking, soldier!"

Dick watches with his fist pressed against his mouth as O'Keefe nods and trips his way off the porch, "Sir, yes, Sir-"ing all the way. He lets the kid go about twenty paces before calling out and ordering him straight back to his billet.

"You spoil the kids, Dick," Nix says, holding the front door open for him. "They're never going to learn any respect with you undermining me like that."

“Come on, Dick. Live a little,” he punctuated his words with a quick slide of his socked toe along Dick’s ankle. “It’ll be a nice distraction from the dull scenery. Trees and more trees.”

Kenna: Scars and Souvenirs (Nix/Winters, R, +8k)
While he watched the grunts unload the C47, he tried again to remember the face of the young lady he was crossing the channel to see, and came up empty again. But he saw Dick Winters’ face, eyes clear and frank and startlingly, vividly blue. And troubled. And he knew then that his young lady would have to find other amusement.

“Captain Nixon?” It was freckle face again. “You can get on board now, sir.”
