• The M*A*S*H fanfic is going down as well as I thought it would.

Dear Hawkeye Chapter 1, a m*a*s*h fanfic | FanFiction

Chapter 1 of ‘Dear Hawkeye’ has been added (the first bit was the prologue). 

Enjoy!

BJ could have said a lot more, but he said what he needed to say and then he offers his support. 

Great and terrible moment in the series. 

It’s beautifully acted- underplayed I’d say. There’s no big fanfare of speech. Hawkeye’s reaction to BJ, BJ’s grab of Hawkeye’s arm and then the way Hawkeye holds onto BJ says more than any other dialogue could do.

BJ really tries hard to make Hawkeye see sense but it’s just not going to wash. I think hawk looks like a real madman in the first couple of caps, a real dangerous edge to him.  
Also, this is one of the few occasions Hawkeye’s real feelings come out, about just how miserable he is with himself and the war. 

One of the most difficult eps of M*A*S*H.  I do like that, as the series progressed, Hawkeye made mistakes, acted in an ugly, privileged fashion without implying it was OK.  Many shows allow the hero/ine take shortcuts and suggest “it’s the right thing to do” because legal means “take too long” or are otherwise ineffective (M*A*S*H does this too), but in this ep we learn by the end that Hawkeye’s unethical decision doesn’t cure “the disease” (war).  BJ is 100% right here, but Hakweye is too mired in rage (and he should be angry) and hatred to change his mind.

Yes, perfectly summed up. BJ is just as appalled and upset as Hawkeye is but is able to see the difference between right and wrong. They made the right choices with the characters in the later years, rubbed the shine off of Hawkeye a little and gave Winchester, who started as still just a foil to Hawkeye and BJ, a real heart and decency to him.

The problem with writing is that there’s never enough room to say everything. I had so much stuff in Willow Garden that had to be cut to keep the chapters readable and the pacing smooth. Having the same problem with Full of Grace. It’s so hard to choose just a few key things and leave it at that.

I suffer the opposite problem. Not enough to say! 

This seems so much like what we’ve seen before at the start of this episode. These two getting one over on a pompous guy and a happy ending. 

I think this is the most serious argument the pair of them have, and they both fight fiercely for their POV.

The start of a new fan fiction for me, titles ‘Dear Hawkeye’. 

  • I might do a little bit of Pop making and watch some M*A*S*H, maybe write a little something.

passistheword reblogged your photoset and added:

Yeah I get that it was wrong what he said if…

You didn’t bother me at all, I just wanted to explain fully why I used that word, as there was no explanation, I felt I should give you a reason so you knew I wasn’t just calling him a jerk and that was the end of it. 

I like to think of Picture This, when the Swamp mates had the big blow up with one another over living together and set up chiefly by BJ borrowing (without asking) Hawkeye’s socks and how when he came back, Hawkeye apologised and said he was a jerk and BJ replied ‘Forget it, we’re all jerks sometimes. It was just your turn’ (Or words to that affect as that’s not an actual quote). :)
