All work and no play is dull...  
Where: In A Pub In Aldbourne
When: Set during 'Replacements'

Lewis Nixon sat in a pub, nursing a glass of whiskey and watching a few of the men play a game of darts. It had been a long time since any of them had a chance to enjoy a bit of freedom, so to speak, away from the marching and the death and destruction. His jump into Normandy had gone off rather smooth and not even firing a single shot. But of course if it had not been for his good friend Dick Winters and him stumbling upon that map of the German lines none of them would be alive. He was snapped out of his thoughts when cheering came from the dart board, he grinned and took another drink.

"Hello, sir. Mind if I sit here? I just got beaten at darts."
The Shifty (and Nix): Happy Nixairborneshifty on July 15th, 2008 12:29 am (UTC)
"Sure pull up a seat Doc." He took another drink from his glass "Buck beating the replacements to a pulp again?" He questioned with a slight smirk on his face.
doc_roedoc_roe on July 15th, 2008 01:06 am (UTC)
He laughed. "Yeah. Buck's teaching them how it's done."
The Shifty (and Nix): Nix smokeairborneshifty on July 15th, 2008 01:13 am (UTC)
"Well at least Buck isn't getting any more of my money, he almost ran me dry a few weeks ago." He shook his head "At least those replacements will learn now to never play darts with him, I swear he cheats."
doc_roedoc_roe on July 15th, 2008 01:18 am (UTC)
"He's not the only one. I swear George has conned me out of my money more times than I can count."

Web's busy looking down at his journal jotting down random notes. He briefly glances over at Lt. Nixon.
doc_roedoc_roe on July 15th, 2008 08:19 pm (UTC)
Gene smiles and waves at him.
Shannon: Looking Upjumpgirl42 on July 15th, 2008 08:22 pm (UTC)
Web looks up and waves back, he gets up and heads over to Gene's table.

Shannon: Smile Web!jumpgirl42 on August 5th, 2008 10:28 pm (UTC)
" Hey Gene," He smiles," Is this seat taken?"
doc_roedoc_roe on August 6th, 2008 04:08 am (UTC)
"Nope. Feel free to sit down." he grins back.
Shannon: Smile Web!jumpgirl42 on August 6th, 2008 04:11 am (UTC)
Web pulls out a chair and sits down.
doc_roedoc_roe on August 7th, 2008 07:15 pm (UTC)
"How have you been? Training been getting to you?" Gene turned to Web with a smile.
Shannon: Silencejumpgirl42 on August 7th, 2008 07:48 pm (UTC)
" Nah...it's been okay..." He sighs. He pulls out a pack of smokes, offering one to Gene.
doc_roedoc_roe on August 12th, 2008 03:39 am (UTC)
"That's good. Wouldn't want you to wash out." he smiles, taking a smoke from Web and lighting it.
Shannon: Looking Upjumpgirl42 on August 12th, 2008 03:45 am (UTC)
" So how have you been?" Web light his own smoke and takes a drag from it.
doc_roedoc_roe on October 6th, 2008 03:24 pm (UTC)
"I've been alright...I can feel the training starting to get to me though...you?"
ron_speirs on July 15th, 2008 07:10 am (UTC)
"Hi, Nix." Ron appears behind Nixon and pats friendly on his shoulder. He grins, when Nix jumps startled and spills some whisky over his hand. "Why so jumpy, Lewis? Krauts are still on the other side of the Channel."
The Shifty (and Nix): Addictedairborneshifty on July 15th, 2008 11:44 am (UTC)
"Ron." He spoke while trying to clean up his hand and ordered another whiskey. "I'm not jumpy Ron, I just don't like to be snuck up on." He grinned "How's Dog Company?"
ron_speirs on July 15th, 2008 01:34 pm (UTC)
"Perhaps, you shouldn't sit with your back to the door then, Nix." He smirked, sitting comfortably on the free chair, stretching his legs.

He sipped on his bear, before lighting a cigarette. "Dog is doing fine. I think, half of the guys are here tonight."
The Shifty (and Nix): Nix drinkairborneshifty on July 16th, 2008 11:40 am (UTC)
"Well they all deserve it Ron. Especially the officers like you and me." He smirked "You seen Welsh lately?" He questioned taking another drink from his glass.
ron_speirs on July 16th, 2008 01:17 pm (UTC)
Ron raised an eyebrow to that, watching Lewis for a while.
"Yeah, I thought, someone is missing. Your drinking buddy is not here." He grinned. "Well, I haven't seen him for several days. Why don't you ask Dick rather? He should know." He looked around again. "Where is he, anyway?"
The Shifty (and Nix): Nix huh?airborneshifty on July 18th, 2008 02:56 pm (UTC)
"Who Dick?" He took another drink from his glass "I haven't seen yet today. And as for Welshie, I think he's sniffing around that broad he met a little while ago. What's her name? Kitty?"
ron_speirs on July 21st, 2008 08:19 pm (UTC)
"Yeah. I have heard about her. We all have, I guess." Ron smirked, turning his attention to the guys at the darts, where the men just cheered the winner.
William J. Guarnere: Jump Wingshotinafrica on July 16th, 2008 03:43 am (UTC)
Guarnere lit up another cigarette as he stood to wander to the bar, the smoke dangling from his lips as he nodded to the Private behind the bar, serving the drinks.
Pint in hand, he wandered back then, through the crowd and towards the group playing darts.
The Shifty (and Nix): Happy Nixairborneshifty on July 16th, 2008 11:39 am (UTC)
Nixon turned his head to Guarnere's retreat back to the darts "Hey Bill, don't be scaring off all the new replacements and taking all their money to boot you hear?" He gave a laugh.
William J. Guarnere: Smilehotinafrica on July 17th, 2008 03:14 am (UTC)
Bill turned at his name, and grinned when he caught sight of Nixon. Removing his cigarette, he noted back with a small start of a laugh, "Heh, what's the point in one if yeh can't do 'em both, right Lieutenant?" Guarnere snickered at this, downing a bit of his ale.
The Shifty (and Nix): Nix smirkairborneshifty on July 18th, 2008 02:54 pm (UTC)
"Just don't let Winters catch you, you hear me Bill? The last I need to hear is him going on about gambling, again." He chuckled "Hey, give 'em hell for me."

Skinny sauntered his way into the pub, greeted by the sounds of cheering and curses from the darts game. He made his way to the bar and sat down as he greeted a few of the men as he passed by.

Skinny gave Shifty a giant grin and leaned against the bar.

"Hey, Shifty. Jus' enjoyin' the night life," he replied, "An' gettin' a kick out of the replacements gettin' their hides handed to 'em. It's a riot.
"He gave Shifty a playful punch in the shoulder.
"How you' doin'? Still pluckin' them chicken feathers off of yeh?"

He was handed a mug of beer, fresh and foaming.

Skinny lifted his mug.

"To Lt. Welsh and Luz's quick thinking," he proclaimed and took a large swig.

Some one let out a holler of dismay across the pub.

"Guess some one just lost a lot of money," he commented.

Skinny glanced over his shoulder and shrugged.

"Probably when they realize that you just can win against George Luz and Lt. Compton," he took another sip of beer.

"You know what, Shifty? Before the war, I never had a drop of alcohol," he looked over at Shifty, "Can you believe that?"

skinnysisk on October 3rd, 2008 03:52 pm (UTC)
"Yeah, my ma, she never did allow alcohol in our house. Said it was the Devil's drink," his eyes momentarily glazed over then chuckled,"If my ma could only see me now."
He glanced over at Shifty.
"What about you, Shift? What was your life like before all this?"

skinnysisk on October 3rd, 2008 04:09 pm (UTC)
Skinny nodded, taking a swig.

"So your pa taught you how to shoot so good? Sure it's not in your blood?" he flashed a playful grin.

"So good, he could shoot the wings off a fly in midair?" Skinny joked.

skinnysisk on October 3rd, 2008 04:55 pm (UTC)
Skinny nodded and finished off his own mug.

"I'm jus' hopin' to get back to them..." he murmered, "But sometimes I think I might not..."

He glanced over at Shifty.

"Aw, hell. Here I am bein' all sad and homesick and shit. Forget I said anythin'."

Skinny nodded and laughed as Shifty swayed a little bit. He grabbed his own mug and raised it towards his buddy.

"To the 'Ginias," he said, before he drank nearly half of his mug in one gulp.

skinnysisk on October 3rd, 2008 05:55 pm (UTC)
"Oh, really?" Skinny raised an eyebrow, "West 'Ginia ain't a real 'Ginia? I believe this calls for a drinkin' contest."

Skinny's eyes were beginning to glaze over.

Skinny finished the rest of his old one and slammed it down. He grabbed the other one.

"Alrigh', Shifty...first one to finish their mug wins," he gave Shifty a lopsided grin.
