okay les amis collective by ark is great and incredibly well-written (but you don’t have to take my word for it, you can read it yourself if that’s your thing! if it’s not, then take my word for it anyway!), and 4.0, which is what this little bit of photoshop fun based off of, is heart-breaking in the best of ways.

I hope one day you will find the love and compassion that used to fill your heart.
Nixon entered military service at Fort Dix, New Jersey, and completed basic training at Camp Croft. Nixon was a hard drinker, a free spirit who enjoyed the wild life and partied with the best of them. On the surface no two individuals were more diametrically opposed in temperament than Nixon and I. I was a confirmed teetotaler and never swore. I preferred a quiet evening in the barracks to the nightlife of Columbus, Georgia, or neighboring Phenix City, Alabama. Despite the differences in lifestyle, I sensed we shared mutual feelings and ways of looking at life. I could understand him and help him understand me, as well as understand himself. Our friendship evolved naturally, and he soon became my closest friend. Lewis Nixon was the finest combat officer with whom I served under fire. He was utterly dependable and totally fearless.
