Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Don't own the characters, just my interpretations of them. Based on fictionalized representations, no disrespect is intended.

Teaser: In which Snafu gets lost in Australia and Burgie knows about cows.

Notes: Snafu & Burgie's bromance is one of my favorite bromances ever, and this quote from Bill Sloan's book about them as new replacements is the birth of this whole thing: "Other times, they'd catch a train and ride the forty miles past neat farms and quiet suburbs to crowded Flinders Street Station in the heart of downtown Melbourne ... Another friend and frequenter of the pubs was PFC Merriell Shelton, an excitable, small-statured youngster from south Louisiana who had arrived with the same group of replacements as Burgin. Shelton was a whiz at poker, but otherwise his primary talents involved getting confused, lost, in trouble, and generally fouled up."


“Christ, Snafu. You walk ten feet out of that camp and you end up with your boots stuck in a tree and your shirt inside out.” Collapse )

Teaser: Haldane surveys the classroom, from Snafu sprawled across the desks to Jay sitting in the corner with earbuds jammed in his ears, to Hamm idly tearing edges off his notebook paper and collecting them all in a mound of shreds on top of his Algebra 2 textbook. He sighs.

Notes: i don't know how this happened. based vaguely on my own summer school experience a few years back. in the end, everything can always, somehow, be traced back to rivlee and uniformly.

Eugene"s never been late for summer school, and he doesn"t want today to be the day that fact changes.Collapse )
