Band of Brothers Headcanons

This something for Thirsty Thursday ;))

                    Hickey Headcanons

Richard Winters- He only leaves one at a time and makes sure you can cover it up my lord.

Lewis Nixon- Intertwines his fingers with yours and pins you up against the wall and leaves like 5 dark hickeys.

Carwood Lipton- He leaves them down your chest, right between your collarbones. That a way it’s easy for you to cover up but he can spot them when you’re switching in and out of uniform.

Denver “Bull” Randleman- He starts really soft and gentle and then he gets rougher and so much more passionate (not enough to hurt you).

Joe Toye- Drags his tongue all over your neck, his teeth will find old marks and he will leave like 20 on your neck I kid you not.

George Luz- He does it just to make you laugh and then a moan slips out and all hell breaks loose. He continues and continues until you’re a mess for him and he makes sure he has some so you can ‘match’ as he says.

Eugene Roe- He will literally leave a hickey in the shape of a heart don’t fight me on this.

Joseph Liebgott- Makes sure people can see them and he smirks, “yeah thaTS ALL MINE”. He takes his time, makes sure to make you whine.

Lynn “Buck” Compton- Will do it in the shape of a L so evERYONE KNOWS and they’re all like ‘ooookaY I see you Buck I see you, hold it down”.

Donald Malarkey- Very very faint little marks. He doesn’t want to get you into trouble but makes sure he can still tell their still there.

Warren “Skip” Muck- He’s so playful it starts off very jokingly and then he actually ends up leaving a few hickeys around your collarbone and you’re both like “oops lmao”

William “Bill” Guarnere- “I can do this duh pft” but he’s so nervous and ends up leaving small marks littered all around your neck in a mess.

Darrell “Shifty” Powers- He will literally ASK if he can give you hickeys like just to e sure and he does it closer to the back of your neck so you can hide it if you need to.

Frank Perconte- Does not give a shit, he leaves huge hickey marks like diagonally across your neck. You were gonna cover them up?? haha you can try.

Ronald Speirs- He leaves them on your thighs omg. Ron wants to be sure it’s something intimate just between the two of you. Besides, if the guys knew they would tease him endlessly.

Edward “Babe” Heffron- Leaves small hickeys but their super dark bc he swol and everyone calls him out and he just sits there like a tomato.

Chuck Grant- Will give you hickeys in front of people he wants to make sure everyone knows that you’re his.

Floyd Talbert- He makes a long trail of them down your neck some he spends more time on than others because he likes to create a ‘masterpiece’ that doof.

David Webster- You do it to get his attention and then he starts to get his revenge by doing it back and you’re both having a competition on who can give the other more.

Harry Welsh- A gentleman bean, hickeys aren’t his forte but when he does leave them he makes sure they don’t hurt you. He leaves them in places very hidden because it’s a secret just for the both of you.

How They React to You Joining the Company

Anon: Hi, I love your blog. Can I ask for headcanons of reactions for you (a female) joining the companies as a sniper with an impressively high kill count. Specifically for generation kill, with Nate Fick and Doc Bryan and Ray Person, and BoB, with Gene,Toye, Guarnere, and others if you want?

Richard Winters: He knew about you before you joined. You were kind of a legend among officers. He kept quiet about your accomplishments, though, because he wanted the men to like and respect you because of who you are rather than what you’ve done. He has great respect for you and does not look at you differently because you’re female.

Lewis Nixon: He knows about your accomplishments and doesn’t give a shit. All he cares about is that you’re willing to take a joke and you don’t bother him about meaningless problems. He enjoys hanging out with you from time to time, but in public he tries to keep his distance so that no one starts associating the two of you together (even though secretly he loves the nights when you two talk about the crap you’ve been through).

Ronald Speirs: He thinks you’re a badass, and treats you as such. Granted, he was VERY surprised when you turned up and you were a woman. When he heard stories about an incredible sniper going through Germany taking out enemies, he figured that you were a guy. That being said, his opinion of you didn’t change in the slightest when he met you.

Slow Dancing with Easy Company

A simple preference with some of the boys :’)

Richard Winters:

Who initiated it: him

Winters is very simple when it comes to dancing, just a simple sway. Every so often he will press gentle kisses on your forehead, just appreciating the moment he gets to spend with you.

Lewis Nixon:

Who initiated it: him

Once he sees everyone starting to dance hes like “um yeS” of course, following after Winters who starts it all. He loves staring into your eyes when you dance, it’s a intimate moment. There are times when you’ll glance eat your feet and tilts your head back up to meet his eyes and will not break it until the dance is over.

Carwood Lipton:

Who initiates it: him

A classic man he is, he offers you his hand and then guides you out onto the floor. His hand is gently on your back guiding you both, humming along to the song as he leans his cheek against yours.

Denver “Bull” Randleman:

Who initiates it: you

He immediately jumps up when you offer though. Bull will wrap his arms around you, hugging you to his chest. He feels safest when he knows he can protect you, plus he can kiss the top of your head alot easier.

Joe Toye:

Who initiates it: you

Asking him to dance might get you a smirk and a sarcastic “I would be honored.” Though it wasn’t his idea, he wanted to make sure he was doing right to impress you. He presses his body against yours and gets as close as he can to you, you ended up having to put some room between you two yourself.

George Luz:

Who initiates it: him

He makes a huge deal, strolling over to you and doing an overdone bow. “Would you mind taking my hand in this dance?” After agreeing, he pulls you out and he is beyond over dramatic. Constantly spinning you around, dipping you just to hear that laugh that he loved hearing.

Donald Malarkey:

Who initiated it: you

He’s taken a little off-guard when you ask him but he agrees eagerly while Muck sends him a wink. This sweet boy is really not sure how to go about starting it so he simple grabs hold of your sides, sliding his hands to your back as he whispers sweet compliments and such into your ear.

Warren “Skip” Muck:

Who initiated it: him

Muck is very sweet but can also be a bit goofy. He sways along with you but also takes time to dip you slowly, bringing you back to kiss your nose which leaves you both in big smiles.

Lynn “Buck” Compton:

Who initiates it: him

As soon as he sees everyone else out there he glances over your way and gestures, “Let’s show them how its done.” Buck make sure everyone’s watching, showing you off and how good the two of you look together. He goes for the all time “one hand on your waist and one in your hand” pose.

Joe Liebgott:

Who initiates it: him

Wow, can he dance. Lieb won’t tell anyone but he really knows how to work a dance floor. With that smirk of his, he takes your arm and you both just blow everyone away. Your bodies work in perfect harmony and everyone’s just like “that’s Lieb right??”

Eugene Roe:

Who initiates it: you

He’s super reluctant because he’s not used to being around all the guys all at the same time. You literally pull him out there and within a few seconds you become his main focus, his arms settling around your waist, pressing soft kisses to your shoulder and looking at you with those puppy eyes.

Bill Guarnere:

Who initiates it: him

Bill isn’t much of a dancer but as soon as he saw others looking at you he pulled you up from where you sat and took you with him. His arms wrap around your waist and pull you flush against him as his lips meet yours to make sure everyone knows who they are looking at.

Darrell “Shifty” Powers:

Who initiates it: him

He gets very little time with you so when an opportunity is presented he makes sure to take it. He’ll squeeze you softly and close his eyes trying to take in everything he can at that moment to just enjoy having you in his arms.

Frank Perconte:

Who initiates it: him

Really he just wants to have a good time with you. It doesn’t matter if you look like dorks as long as you’re both smiling. Perco will be spinning you around while whooping, “I’m blown away!”

Ronald Speirs:

Who initiates it: you

Ronald comes off as v v intimidating to the boys and wanted to keep it that way but when you asked he really could not say no. He attempted to keep up the tough guy thing until he looked your eyes and just melted. His face buried into your neck, rocking with you as your arms hold him in a comforting grasp.

Edward “Babe” Heffron:

Who initiated it: you

When you approach him he is literally looking around like “wait me?? mE?” Babe puts all of his attention on you, his eye studying all of your features as his hand comes up to interlock with yours, holding it against his chest as if it was treasure. Which you were to him.

Floyd Talbert:

Who initiates it: him

He’ll glance across the table at you, “What do you say, Princess?” He interlocks your hands, looking into your eyes as he shamelessly starts to list of how beautiful you are just to make you blush which only encourages him.

David Webster:

Who initiates it: you

This shy bean will be nervous to ask so when you do he just lets out this breathe of relief, “Yes, of course.” When you two start to dance, everything seems to fade away and its just the two of you. He presses his forehead against yours as his thumbs rubbing soft circles on your waist.

Bruce Langhorne, Guitarist Who Inspired 'Mr. Tambourine Man,' Dies at 78
By Bill Friskics-Warren

Bruce Langhorne, an intuitive guitarist who played a crucial role in the transition from folk music to folk-rock, notably through his work with Bob Dylan, died on Friday at his home in Venice, Calif. He was 78.

A close friend, Cynthia Riddle, said the cause was kidney failure.

From his pealing lead guitar on “Maggie’s Farm” to his liquid electric guitar lines on “Love Minus Zero/No Limit” and “She Belongs to Me,” Mr. Langhorne was best known for his playing on Mr. Dylan’s landmark 1965 album, “Bringing It All Back Home.” He also contributed hypnotic countermelodies to tracks like “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue.”

“Bringing It All Back Home” proved a harbinger of ’60s folk-rock. Mr. Langhorne’s empathetic accompaniment, always stressing feeling over flash, animated all 11 of the album’s tracks.

In his 2004 memoir, “Chronicles,” Mr. Dylan said of Mr. Langhorne, “If you had Bruce playing with you, that’s all you would need to do just about anything.”

Mr. Dylan credited Mr. Langhorne with inspiring “Mr. Tambourine Man,”recalling in 1985 that the song came to him after seeing Mr. Langhorne arrive for a 1964 recording session with an oversize Turkish drum arrayed with bells. (“In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come following you,” Mr. Dylan sang.)

Mr. Langhorne had not set out to become a guitar player. A student of the violin, he had to forgo a career in classical music after losing two fingers and most of the thumb on his right hand in an accident involving homemade fireworks when he was 12. He took up the guitar at 17, developing a unique call-and-response approach to the instrument.

“Since I have fingers missing, some styles of guitar playing were forever unreachable for me,” he told an interviewer. “I really needed someone who had a thread going to really do my job,” he continued, alluding to his musical collaborators. “Because then they could generate a couple of lines of polyphony, or a rhythmic structure, and then I could enhance that.” [Read More]

Band Of Brothers Preference

Can you do the reader or the guys distancing themselves from being with them? Like the slow dancing one? Gifs please! Requested by Anon

Richard Winters:

Who distances themselves: you from him

Winters was always being selfless and you began to worry that would the end of him. What was the point of loving someone if there was a huge chance you could lose them at any given moment? That just wasn’t something your heart could take. But once he heard your reasoning he took you aside and promised you that he was never going to leave your side no matter what happens.He was going to be there.

Lewis Nixon:

Who distances themselves: him from you

What were you trying to do being with him? He was only gonna end up hurting you or disappointing you, he thought. When you entered the room he would leave immediately or try to look busy to stop involving you in his life. Once you approached him about it he just let it spill, he thought you deserved alot more. Safe to say, you stayed around to make sure you proved just how amazing her was to him.

Carwood Lipton:

Who distances themselves: you from him

When Lip loves he loves wholeheartedly and he loves everyone. So when you continually declined his offers or just waved him off it just made him want to know why even more. Lipton was not one to let go off people, he was going to make sure he got over those walls that you kept so tightly around your heart and he was going to stay there.

Denver “Bull” Randleman:

Who distances themselves: you from him

Did you think you could just walk away from him? Aw, that’s funny. Bull would not let that happen, let alone you even think about it. You try to do it subtly but he catches on quick and pulls you aside making sure to take every bad thought out of your mind and let you know that after all this, you’re gonna be stuck with him.

Joe Toye:

Who distances themselves: him from you

What’s the point in getting to know someone who can screw you over? Or worse, someone who can just die and leave you alone. Toye was known to be someone who didn’t open up but you wouldn’t allow that. You pushed and pushed and pushed until he finally snapped. He didn’t want another person in his life because he didn’t want the hurt that came with it. And if you knew more about him, he would become attached to you and that itself was the worst pain. There was no thing he made clear though. That was that if you knew him and truy knew him, you would have to stay, and that wasn’t even the slightest of problems for you.

George Luz:

Who distances themselves: you from him

If there is one thing everyone knows about George Luz, that is that he always cares. Doesn’t matter who it is or what they do, you deserve to be happy. And you were someone he really wanted to be happy, more than anyone. Luz doesn’t shy away from anything so you better believe he up and calls you out on it as soon as he knows for sure whats going on. He makes it a point to look you in the eye and tell you he is going to stick around until you open up to him and nothing that you do will change it.

Eugene Roe:

Who distances themselves: him from you

Roe would not speak a single word you let alone even look in your direction. That only made you want to get to know him more. When there was a time you were both alone, you let it slip, ‘I’m not going not hurt you.’ He cleared his throat explaining that he didn’t want to be the one to see you get hurt. It was sweet honestly but that wasn’t a valid reason by you. ‘It’s okay. Because if I do get hurt, I know who’s gonna save me.”

Joseph Liebgott:

Who distances themselves: you from him

Lieb had his eyes on you and he would literally follow you everywhere. He never realized it truly bothered you until you called your temporary or just another girl. The next time you were together, he stood up in front of everyone pronouncing his love for you. The thing is, he was already attached. And he knew what he wanted. You and only you for a long time.

Lynn “Buck” Compton:

Who distances themselves: you from him

Buck was liked by everyone and always tried to be even with everything he had been through. He deserved something constant something whole in his life and you just didn’t believe that was you. Those words broke Compton’s heart because somehow you didn’t see all his cracks and how you were the only thing that made HIM feel ‘whole’. 


Donald Malarkey:

Who distances themselves: him from you

This sweet thing craves acknowledgement but there is also a chance that things can go wrong. With everything that happened, he only needed one thing to go right. What’s the point in rolling that dice again though? Better to be alone and content than together and then heartbroken. Soon that became frustrated, you forcefully had to make Malarkey be around you and grabbed onto him. ‘I’m here. I’m always gonna be here, no matter what you do. So stop trying.’ That’s all he needed to hear.


Warren “Skip” Muck:

Who distances themselves: you from him

Skip is such a sap oml. Ignore him all you want, you will still find flowers, love notes, hugs, compliments, etc., all coming your way. He doesn’t give up easy or with you, at all. In the hell he is in, you’re the only thing that makes him feel safe.

Bill Guarnere:

Who distances themselves: him from you

Aww this giant teddy bear. BIll gets hooked super easily so once you walked in he was like “abort abort abOrT”. One thing that scared Bill was depending on people and not having them there one day. Being away at war, he only thinks about you but God knows what you’re thinking about he just hopes it’s him. He needs reassurance every once in a while to know you’re the only one for him.

Darrell “Shifty” Powers:

Who distances themselves: you from him

Shifty would not let you go, not even for a second. If you’re what he wants, he will get you. He’s one of those guys who is super sweet constantly and soooo polite about it, how could you tell him no? He’s also super upfront, he will tell you straight up, he will get you. no if’s and’s or but’s.

Frank Perconte:

Who distances themselves: you from him

You want to keep your distance? Can’t do that if he’s everywhere you go. *inserts meme guy* But seriously Perco will make sure he is always around you, at some point you’re gonna have to open up. He’s so stubborn, you will give up before he does I can promise you that. Frank also follows you like a lost pupper looking for some love and affection. 

Ronald Speirs:

Who distances themselves: him from you

He will not get close to you. He will not open up to you. He will not lose you. That’s what goes through Speirs’ mind. He figured everyone else in the company tries to avoid him, if he’s rude to you maybe you’ll just avoid him too and he won’t have to worry about it. If anything, it only intrigued you more which really worried him. Everyone noticed how he began to snap at you easier and even the officers began to suspect something. If you hated him, he couldn’t catch feelings. But soon enough you crawled right under his skin and he could not even think about being without you.

Edward “Babe” Heffron:

Who distances themselves: him from you

Poor bean has been abandoned too often. babe doesn’t have much regard for himself, but you saw the world in him. He didn’t regard himself as much of a suitor or someone people are interested in. Why would he want someone to be with him if there’s a chance they could find better?

Chuck Grant:

Who distances themselves: him from you

Chuck has this whole reputation of flirting but it terrified him to have something real. Once things are real then they can be destroyed and more than anything he doesn’t want the pain of being destroyed. He will not give anyone the opportunity to hurt him. Pick at him, find out quirks, make a joke, compliment him. Small things slip out and before he knows it, Grant has created so much space for someone he didn’t want around in the first place.

Floyd Talbert:

Who distances themselves: you from him

Everyone knows how Tab can be. His little flirty moves, his suggestive comments, it’s all really in fun until he finds someone who really peaks his interest. and not just their body no, their mind, their movements, their banters. It’s stuff that makes him want to know every part of someone. But of course if you don’t know that side of him, being with Tab is something really hard to imagine. But if there’s one thing he tries to get across its that, ‘Honey, I’m gonna be the person who makes sure you don’t get hurt again.’

David Webster:

Who distances themselves: him from you

If you love people you have more to lose. That’s how he sees it. Web has witnessed his closest friends get wounded and it hurt like hell. One more person was not worth it, he was not meant to fall for you and did his best not to. But we all know this doe-eyed boy. Look at him once with those innocent eyes and wide smile and damn it. He’s a fool for you.


Harry Welsh:

Who distances themselves: you from him

This hopeless romantic. He was always out there first and always in the way of danger. He doesn’t even worry about the matter, he is all smiles and grins when he sees you because he knows at some point you’ll be in his arms and everything between the both of you will be right. And everything before that won’t matter. He just has to wait.

What is true dominance? Sweeping all of the MVP awards in one season - the All-Star, the Season, and the Finals MVP. Only 3 players have accomplished this feat:

  • 1970 - Willis Reed, the first one to officially win the MVP treble. Before that, Bob Cousy (1957) and Bill Russell (1963) won the All-Star and Season MVPs plus the title, but not the Finals MVP, since it wasn’t introduced until 1969.
  • 1996 - Michael Jordan, in his first full season out of (semi) retirement.
  • 1998 - Michael Jordan, in his final Bulls season.
  • 2000 - Shaquille O’Neal, the last winner of the MVP treble.

Band of Brothers - Part 7 - The breaking point

“It’s called ‘wounded’, Peanut. ‘Injured’ is when you fall out of a tree or something”
