    Summary

    He leads them out into the alley behind the club, thankfully empty, and shoves Hawkeye up against the brick. “The mouth on you, my god,” he breathes, before ensuring Hawkeye has no air left in him to retort anything at all.

    Hawkeye can hear the rough bricks rubbing against his uniform, microscopic tears that will go unnoticed for months, all the while unraveling and pilling. He doesn’t want to stop. He wants to stay pinned until the wool is ripped and unfit for inspection. He wants to stand before MacArthur and Eisenhower, before Truman himself and say, ‘Look at me. Look at how much I care about your war.’

    San Francisco, 1951. Hawkeye Pierce spends one last night as a civilian. A year later, that night catches up to him.

    Summary

    Ali grows cold in the midst of an unthinkable goodbye. He doesn’t hear himself speak but, out the door and into the darkened corridor, he feels the sting of tears on his cheeks, scorching like the desert sun. Remnants of the light of Lawrence, he thinks and prays that it doesn’t all fade away. He could not bear it. Something in him has cracked open.

    Summary

    Reunited in England, Ali and Lawrence reconnect after years apart. Can they put back the pieces and salvage what was lost? Were there any feelings there to salvage?

    Sounds angsty but its really mainly romance with some angsty flashbacks. Based on the film so there's historical inaccuracy, though I've tried to anchor it with truth.

    In this story, Lawrence never re-enlisted.

    Summary

    Ali told himself that he had not come here expecting to be embraced and kissed like a brother. He had not come here expecting to find Lawrence full of joy, or apologetic for not having sought to contact Ali himself. He had not come here expecting to find Lawrence sane.

    In these regards, he was not disappointed.
