Reblog if you’re in the Band of Brothers fandom

(I can’t be the only person curious to find out how many people love these adorable boys as much as I do)

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.

anonymous asked:

Can you do one where the reader is best friends with the Band of Brothers guys and show how they comfort the reader after a bad day or how the reader comforts the guys? With gifs please? If you can?

Richard Winters:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

Winters wraps you up in his arms as soon as he sees even the faintest look of upset on your face. He places both hands on either side of your face and looks you in the eye as he tries to fix what’s wrong or what’s bothering you. Winters always wants to make sure he is there when you need someone and that you’re not afraid of talking about it.

Lewis Nixon:

Who comforts who: You comfort him

Nixon doesn’t often need comforting because he has a way of making things roll off him or just dealing with them *cough drinking cough* but when he does decide to let it out, it can be some destructive behavior. Frustrated yells leave his lips and he usually has bruised or bleeding knuckles that need you to tend to them.

Carwood Lipton:

Who comforts who: you comfort him

He’s more so in touch with his emotions than the others. He lets them out when needed so there’s not often a time where he ‘explodes’. But when he does have his little moments, he just needs you to hold his hand, press small kisses to his head and sit it out with them. Just don’t leave him alone, then he thinks too much.

Denver ‘Bull’ Randleman:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

C’mon now, those arms were made for being held in. Honestly, the minute you need Bull, he is there. He wraps his arms tightly around you, squeezing you in a reassuring way and whispering comforting words and a little ‘shh’ ‘i’m here’ every once in a while.

Joe Toye:

Who comforts you: you comfort him

When Joe is upset, he gets quiet and he’ll bit his lip or clench his jaw alot. If you ask him if he wants to talk or just what’s bothering him you most likely get an ‘I’m good.’ or ‘Don’t worry about it.’ But the minute you go to leave him alone he just pulls you into his arms. You know him better than he knows himself so you pet your fingers through his hair and let him get out everything he needs.

George Luz:

Who comforts who: you comfort him

Okay look. I know usually George would be the one comforting but he has his moments too! When he gets down, he will stroll to wherever you are and thrown himself in your lap or on top of you. A sad Luz is seeing pouty lips and puppy eyes. He seeks your words and comfort so he wastes no time in talking about it to you. Luz will look up at you to seek comfort, in even the simplest of things like the way your expression changes when he speaks.

Eugene Roe:

Who comforts who: you comfort him

He gets kind of awkward when it comes to talking about things so really he just seeks physical comfort to know you’re there for him whenever he gets ready to actually talk about it. His hands squeeze at your shoulders, waist, or back in a way of letting out some of his emotion.

Joseph Liebgott:

Who comforts who: you comfort him

When Lieb breaks, he breaks. Sometimes its sudden. He will tend to get a bit short with you or snappier and you know the dam is bound to come down. You’ll know when he stands in front of you and his eyes stare into yours for about 30 seconds. His eyes slowly water until the first choked sob escapes his lips. Once you touch him, he falls apart in your arms, clinging to you much like a lost child.

Lynn ‘Buck’ Compton:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

Buck hates seeing others upset, it hurts his soul a little. So as soon as he sees that little damper in your atmosphere or a frown on your lips he does whatever he can to bring that light back. His go to is to just pick you up, wherever you both are and begin to spin you around. You’re hesitant at first but after seeing that dorky, hopeful smile on his lips, you’re bad mood is soon forgotten.

Donald Malarkey:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

Though emotions aren’t really his forte, he can tell when something is wrong in a snap. he pulls you aside and reassures you that he is always there for you. He doesn’t push you to open up right away but when you do, he just holds your hand giving it a reassuring squeeze every once in a while and let’s you spill everything you’ve held back.

Warren ‘Skip’ Muck:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

Muck is great at picking up on people’s vibes omg. He doesn’t say anything, he just walks right up to you and pulls you into his arms. Even though you’re thrown off he just whispers, ‘Let it all out. I got you.’ and that’s all it takes. Muck doesn’t beat around the bush, the longer you’re upset the more it upsets him.

Bill Guarnere:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

When you place yourself in Bill’s arms at first he’s like ‘What is goING On?? whO I gotta fight?’ But he realizes that you just seeked some comfort from him. He’s not really sure what to do but he holds you against him, letting you bury your face into his chest or neck. He whispers as soft as his gruff voice can get, “It’s gonna be okay, let it pass sweetheart.”

Darrell ‘Shifty’ Powers:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

Seeing you upset breaks his little heart so he makes it his mission to get to the bottom of why you’re so upset. He will wrap one around you, rubbing your arm with his thumb. He nods along as you explain what got you down and when you take pauses he slips in little ‘I love you’s.

Frank Perconte:

Who comforts who: you comfort him

Poor smol Italian gets the butt end from everyone. He’s constantly getting the teases and digs so after a long day he just launches himself into your arms. Just laying in your arms gives him the comfort he needs, his hands fiddling with yours and one of your hands rubbing his back. Beware though! If you baby him, he will do it just to get your attention when he feels ignored, much like a puppy.

Ronald Speirs:

who comforts who: he comforts you

Once he sees you with that sad look a small smile crosses his face and he just lifts his arms out to you. “Come here, let me hold you.” He’s not great at words so he just lets you let it out into his chest, one hand cradling your head and the other rubbing circles into your shoulder. “Want me to beat them up?” Is something he always offers just to hear a small giggle break the sadness.

Edward ‘Babe’ Heffron:

Who comforts who: you comfort him

This poor bean gets very insecure sometimes. It’s when he lands at your doorstep, tears pooling in his eyes and all he says is ‘Please don’t leave me.’ when you know what heartbreak it. He’s seen alot of hurt and the one thing that scares him is to be left alone with it all. He will go on and on about how important you are until you shush him and make sure he knows your not leaving. He just buries his face in your neck and dissolves.

Chuck Grant:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

Grant will comfort you before you’re even upset, he doesn’t want to see a single tear come from your face. When he notices you’re stressed out or upset he pulls you into his side. “I love you, you know that right?’ And then it’s just comfortable silence, you both realizing how valued you are to the other.

Floyd Talbert:

Who comforts who: he comforts you

When you’re stressed or frustrated Tab either has two go to’s. ‘Make it a joke’ or ‘Be sweet for once’ Majority of the time he goes for the first option. But when it’s a particularly bad time, he will grab hold of your hand and place it over his chest.”Just focus on my heartbeat okay? You help keep this going so I’m gonna help you keep yours going, okay?’

David Webster:

Who comforts who: you comfort him

Web doesn’t let things out very often so when he does it takes you off-guard. He becomes breathless and he won’t usually respond so you’re best chance is to just hold onto him and make sure he knows that you’re sticking with him through it. You place your head on his shoulder and have one hand on his arm so he feels safe and in case he attempts to lash out, you can pull him back.

Harry Welsh:

Who comfort who: he comforts you

You’re his everything, if you’re upset then everything crumbles. Harry will push everything aside to make sure you’re okay. He sits you in between his legs and wraps his arms around your torso hugging your body into his own and trying to help talk you through it.
