Sid transferred to
Eugene’s unit just before he arrived at K/3/5 and they made it through the war
together, side by side. After coming home, Eugene struggles with vivid
nightmares and survivor’s guilt. To help, Sid suggests working at a hospital for wounded vets. Heeding his friend’s advice, Eugene is sided with Merriell
Shelton who was also in K/3/5, but honorably discharged after a mental breakdown in Okinawa. Merriell is their most difficult patient, whose moods
range from listless mute to rabid dog. But Merriell responds to Eugene and
maybe—just maybe, the two of them can make it through this.
It’s slow going, but this story is most definitely happening guys! And I’m working on an actual quality gifset for it, so stay tuned.
