Justin remembers the sand most of all. Miles and miles of it, the lightest tan, coarse and grainy, extending in all directions to meet the fluorescent blue of the sky at the horizon in an endless line that waved in the heat of the desert sun. He remembers the dirt roads between villages and the only slightly better roads between cities; he remembers that first sip of water, sweet and cold, the best damn thing he ever tasted even after only ten minutes under the sun. He remembers riding in the back of the jeep, pressed hip-to-knee with his company and wondering if today was the day they'd all get fucked to hell by a roadside bomb.

But mostly, Justin remembers the sand. The sand, and Nick.

Thank you!! I know everyone is busy trying to get their own stories finished and I am very excited to finally get to read some, now that mine is posted. Woot. And I am excited to read yours! I have no idea which it is, but I know it will be awesome.

I am so happy to see this up. I think it's the most amazing thing you've written yet. I think it's such a beautiful fic--even though it's really about ugly things. Um. Yes. [insert more coherent squealing here]

I hope people like it. Well, maybe like is the wrong word. But I hope they get something out of it and I have decided I need to just be zen-like-JC and learn to stop worrying and love the bomb, etc.

Will read the fic once I find the time, but just commenting to say the art looks really great. It looks like it could be a book cover.
