“He was there when he was needed, and how he got ‘there’ you often wondered. He never received recognition for his bravery, his heroic servicing of the wounded … If any man who struggled in the snow and the cold, in the many attacks through the open and through the woods, ever deserved such a medal, it was our medic, Gene Roe.” - Lieutenant Foley (Band of Brothers p. 181)
My favourite BBS headcanon is that Aqua was a very acrobatic twelve year old. She loved doing somersaults and cartwheels and was really really good at it and that’s how she figured she could use one-handed cartwheels to dodge. It annoyed Terra because he thought cartwheels were silly and girly. You can’t use cartwheels to dodge that’s stupid, he said. But snarky, determined twelve year old Aqua was like WATCH ME.
And that is why to this day Aqua does cartwheel dodges.

What if one of stabbys children decides he doesn’t want to be like his father, that he doesn’t want to stab people, so against his family’s wishes he takes off the knife and puts speakers on instead. Thus resulting in space dj roomba (@obssessive101)
part of ben going to the dark side was realizing he was luke’s second favorite. stabby always came first. (nonny)
oh my god kylo getting offended and angry bc bb8 is the true continuation of his grandfather’s legacy (@admfirmuspiett)
inb4 the lightsaber-armed Stabby incident gets Imperial researchers to look into sturdier boot designs. Like, “we’re working on a second Death Star here and y'all want to make BOOTS???” (nonny again; to which i say, no one who has served with Stabby questions the need for better boots; and no one else questions the strange requests that come their way. think about it: someone had to request the materials for Vader’s Castle of Angst. The Empire is a strange place to work.)
So… surely if Vader has Stabby wandering around among the imperial army and stabby is sending kill cams back… he’s like, THE MOST valuable intelligence operative the alliance have right? (@
misskel. and yes. sort of. stabby does not gather intelligence, apart from in the most random ways. say he stabs someone and as they chase him, he runs past a board with some Very Important plans on it. or he stabs a double agent and some Resistance guy is like shiit that’s bob in accounting knew he wasn’t up to any good he never refilled the coffee pot. attempts to send him instructions have thus fired, though if that’s because of distance or Stabby’s innate desire to interpret any instruction as Stab Shit is very much up for debate)
Your stabby story is fantastic! I’d like to imagine that both sides have unreasonably large bounties on its return, leading to confused (and stabbed) bounty hunters (nonny the III. yes. oh god yes. someone art bobba fett getting stabbed pls)
