    Summary

    Makoto's bad day was topped off with his hat being caught by the wind and flying away from him. Another boy caught it, his new neighbor. Soon, over some time, the two formed an inseparable bond through all the poverty, war, and loneliness around them.

    But Makoto sometimes thinks that Sousuke regrets their relationship as they grow older. He sometimes thinks that if they had never met then there would be no heartache.

    Summary

    Prompted by an anonymous asker on my Tumblr, rabbittwalter.

    This fic takes place in 1938, during the Great Depression. Rabbit sees the pain and suffering his (then 'his') family is going through during this troubling time and it begins to eat at him, causing tension between himself and The Spine. He never knew he was capable of such intense emotion until The Spine finally coaxed it out of him.

    Summary

    And he’s forced to act like those in awe and respectful of this Joe, but he’d opened his brown envelopes of carefully-marked sawbucks last night. It wasn't a bad stash, but keeping this job and acting like he accepts authority seems necessary for a while more.

    Smith smiles for just a second. “Also, it’s just Erwin. They tell me you go by just Levi?”

    Levi takes his hand back and hesitates. “Right.”

    And it all goes wrong.
