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]

The Velveteen Soldier - bookstorequeer - Band of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
"Does it hurt?" asked the [Velveteen] Rabbit.
"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

An exploration in Speirs. This is a look at the biggest bad-ass of Easy, from a young age living with his parents in Maine to old age living with his partner, Second Lieutenant C. Carwood Lipton, in Montana. How did he go from being the quiet boy no one wanted on their baseball team in PE (even if he could run the bases faster than anyone else) to being the quiet foster father of four? From being a war hero and CO of Easy Company to being a handyman that all the women in the neighbourhood called upon? From being rumour-riddled and nightmare-haunted to being loved and care-worn? This is the story of how Ronald C. Speirs became Real. [28,944] [Also it's fucking heart-breaking and dense and beautiful. This is as close to poetry as prose can get.]

Gone Are All The Days - rivlee - Band of Brothers, The Pacific [Archive of Our Own]
There were some connections that went deeper than love, blood, and bond. Some people just carried parts of each other souls within them; that’s how it had always been between Merl-Francis and Gene-Baptiste. They knew each other, mind, body, and soul, like no other would ever discover. There was a time, Merl-Francis knew, that Paw-Paw worried it would stop them from seeking out others. There were whispers since they were kids about them being too involved. Merl-Francis never worried; they were a part of each other, that little bolt that kept the whole thing working, but they didn’t make each other complete. Gene-Baptiste now, with his red-headed boy full of a foul mouth and dirty jokes, was getting closer to that complete. There was still more before it all slid into place, still wrinkles of life to smooth on out, but they were getting there. [series]

A Softer War - twelve_pastels - Band of Brothers [Archive of Our Own]
In 1945, Edward Heffron comes home from War. In 1951, Babe punches a guy through a plate glass window, loses half his tastebuds, flees from alligators, and moves in with a doctor. All of these things are related. [5331]

He forgets. The tree does not. So when Carwood Lipton closes his eyes and they open somewhere else, he doesn't expect it - but it's right, all the same.

redjacket: Years Later
Years later, Babe realizes just how much Gene hates the cold. Part of it is being older, Babe’s bones can’t take it so well now either, but Gene just hates it. He’s a Louisiana boy, does best when it’s not just warm but goddamn sweltering.

“How’d you do it?” Babe asks him, once, waiting for him to bundle up until even his face barely shows.

“Just did,” Gene replies easily, with the same bittersweet, half smile he wears whenever they talk about the war. [7440]

Come On, Charlie, Let It Fill Your Soul
Lipton looked at him and couldn’t help laughing. “You’re the only guy I ever saw in my life that got hit with one bullet and got four holes,” he told Compton.

Compton growled, “If I could get off of this tank, I’d kill you.”

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.

crimsonquills: Hard to Reach Spots
It was impossible not to wonder about them whenever Lipton saw Speirs on the line. Did they work? Could he fly? How did he get them through his clothes? Did they ever catch on doors? Had he been shot in one? Did it hurt? Why were they always so rough and uneven? Bird wings never looked like that.

Lipton never figured he'd learn the answers, though, and he did his best to put the questions out of his mind, especially when he occasionally spoke to Speirs. The man's gaze was hard and cold, and there was something slightly wild about him, like maybe he'd gone totally nuts under that impassive expression. Lipton didn't think he'd take kindly to questioning on such a personal and irrelevant subject. [1478]

"Does it hurt?" asked the Velveteen Rabbit.
"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt." |||||

This is the story of how Ronald C. Speirs became Real. [~29,600] [I was a little hesitant about this one as the Speirs characterization is unusual to say the least, but it's a beautiful story and the writing is almost lyrical in some places.]

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]
