Title: Illusion
Fandom: The Pacific
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,370
Characters/Pairing: Ack Ack/Hillbilly
Summary: Just him, and what would never be. A coda to a bullet down, from Eddie's POV.
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters--they are based off of the actors' portrayals of characters in HBO's The Pacific, not the real people themselves.
Author's Note: So I was going through my fandom folders and realized that I had never posted this particular fic even though I wrote it last summer. My style has definitely changed somewhat since that time but I still find this acceptable enough to post. :) It's a bit PWP-ish and a little heavy on the angst. Not sure if it's absolutely necessary to read the original piece (beyond realizing that it's a modern AU) but it would definitely place it in better context!

He’s forgotten her name—maybe it starts with an M and drags out in long syllables that his alcohol-addled tongue can’t pronounce properly )

Characters/Pairing: Ack Ack/Hillbilly
Summary: “I think we’re too good for it to be a coincidence,” Andrew finally answers, “I think someone is intentionally planting faulty intel.” Organized Crime AU.
Written: post-episode 10
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters--they are based off of the actors' portrayals of characters in HBO's The Pacific, not the real people themselves. Absolutely no disrespect is intended.
Author's Note: SO. Funny story, this piece was intended to be a short 2k word piece at maximum. And then ummm, somehow it evolved into ~27k words of ridiculous AU? This fic wouldn't have been possible without several people. [profile] spirograph and [personal profile] uniformly put up with me whining about this fic for the entire month it took me to write this and helped push me through crucial plot points as well as being HUGE ENABLERS IN GENERAL. Also, this fic would have been a million times more unintelligible if not for the amazing beta work of [profile] jeanquirieplus! I've stared at this thing for like WAY TOO LONG and she just CLEANED EVERYTHING UP AND WAS AMAZING ABOUT IT. SO MUCH LOVE FOR YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY OK. ♥♥♥

Based on this fic: Sammy made some incredible graphics - one, two, three, & four | Gorgeous fanart by Beren

There is the squelch of boots through mud, the disjointed chanting of men somewhere in the far distance, halfhearted attempts to keep their spirits up. )

Author's Note: is it too early for a fratboys au in this fandom yet? yes? too bad, i don't actually care because i'm writing it anyways! :D this main piece is sledge/snafu centric but i have plans for spinoffs involving all of the other characters. <3 also, please be aware that it's a multichapter fic--second part is already in the works! as such, the rating is tentative for what might occur later on.
