    Summary

    James Buchanan Barnes was just trying to get through his reintegration to civilian life without becoming Bubble Boy, or a recluse, or some weird combination of the two. But then Josh Ray Person blows into his life at a VA support meeting with his stupid Elvis sunglasses and penchant for saying what he’s thinking without processing it first and drags him, kicking and screaming, out of his shell.

    Josh Ray Person was a lonely mess before he dragged himself to that VA support meeting. His boyfriend was in freakin’ England and the people he kept in contact with were too far to see every day so he was stuck in a loop of home-therapy-home-therapy-home-weed dealer-home until he forced himself to get out, go to the VA meeting his therapist had kept hinting at. When he meets James, Bucky, it’s like a breath of fresh air, a new project so he latches onto him like a grabby octopus and makes him his new best friend.

    Together they’re just trying to make it through the weirdness that is civilian life, one cup of coffee at a time.

    Summary

    Ray and Brad hook-up at Walt and Nate's wedding and it's the start of something.

    "Oh God,” Ray mumbles into the pillow, his eyes shooting open as he tips his head just enough to see the person next to him and oh, oh, Ray went home with someone last night. Someone that apparently sets their alarm on a Saturday. “Who the fuck sets an alarm on a Saturday?” he asks, rolling onto his side and stretching, he gaze taking in the wall of muscle next to him as his back twinges slightly.

    Summary

    "It began with no ado. It was odd that such a well advertised public event should have no starting gun, no overture, no introductory speaker. I should have known right then that I was out of my depth." - Annie Dillard, "Total Eclipse"

    Summary

    It's been half a year since Brad has seen Ray and that's fine, no, really. It gives him some space, he's able to enjoy the peace without goat fucking hicks bothering him and he has time for those strange feelings for his RTO to settle down. But when Ray shows up unexpectedly at his doorstep one day, they're hard to ignore. So Brad is left with one question: Does he truly want to spend the rest of his life without Ray by his side?

    Summary

    Author's summary: Character study of Ray through his teenage years through the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Yeah, I suck at summaries, sorry. I adore Josh Ray Person with the fire of a thousand suns. This is really just an excuse for me to write a big ol' love letter to Ray-Ray.

    Summary

    This is an HBO War fanfic based off of the two questions I needed answered:

    "How badly would Ray Person annoy the rest of the HBO war boys?"

    And

    "What would it look like for all of the HBO War boys to work in one, cohesive unit?"

    And thus I decided to start WW3. Better summary probably coming soon.

    Summary

    Rolling Stone
    June 13, 2003

    In the news, it was a particular kind of story, spun to gain glory and minimize shame. Our reporter was there, ostensibly to report on the "tip of the spear" of the Iraq invasion. Instead he came back from three days stranded with the Lost Platoon and some of the unsettling, hilarious, and horrifying realities of warfare in the modern -- and premodern -- age.

    Originally conceived as a series of articles spread over June and July, we've decided to publish it all in one go.
