But there is too much history, too much biography between us
This song makes me think of Hawkeye and Margaret everytime I listen to it in a very literal sense. Like, it’s literally about a Major and a draftee who really doesn’t belong in the army and their differences.
It’s not a perfect fit, but with a few tenses and pronouns changed, I can imagine it is.
Aaaaand we’re done (what a marathon)! Thank you so much to @trapper-john for stepping in to beta this,@kimberlunas for being the other half of the conversation that spawned this beast, and @4077th for the reblogs and rambly tag reviews!
Thank you also to everyone who’s liked/reblogged/commented or reviewed on/left kudos. I couldn’t have done it without you 💛
A/N: Drabble, written for the prompt A perfect day.
“What do you think happens?” Margaret asked, “the day we come home?”
Hawkeye looked at the beautiful woman, whose head was currently resting against his chest, watching him. He gently began stroking her cheek, watching her smile widen, her eyes beginning to twinkle.
“Well, my dad will be waiting at the airport. We’ll hug and try to act manly, but fail miserably and end up crying a little… probably a lot more than a little. And then the three of us will go home together and sleep for a few weeks.”
“The three of us?” Margaret asked.
“If it’s going to be a perfect day, I’ll need you to be there.” She smiled as he leaned down to kiss her passionately. They slowly broke apart, beaming at each other. “And after weeks and weeks of sleep, we’ll all live happily ever after.”
“And I’ll be the princess, who gets the prince in the end?”
“I’ve never really thought of myself as a prince,” Hawkeye said. “More as a king.”
Who says I was talking about you?“
"Oh, one day you’ll regret that, Margaret Houlihan.” He rolled him over, pinning her underneath him and in between tickles and kisses, he decided that perfection could wait as long as he had right here and right now.
