I'VE MADE IT! \o/

This is my first finished story longer than 4.5k, so I'm both excited and really, really nervous.


Title: All we gotta do is be brave and be kind (baby, we'll be fine)
Fandom: Generation Kill
Crafters: [livejournal.com profile] aubreyrose (her art is here) and [livejournal.com profile] lunatics_word (her art is here)
Characters/Pairings: Brad/Nate, mostly; there's a mention of Ray/Walt once, Poke and Mike even get to speak and there are some original characters, too. Oh, and Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have a little scene together. ;)
Rating: R
Word Count: 20886 (according to GoogleDocs) or 20057 (according to Writer), so let's just say that it's a little over 20k.
Warnings: mentions and acts of homophobia; swearing, but it's nothing you haven't heard if you watched the series.
Disclaimer: This story is based on the fictional characters from the HBO miniseries Generation Kill. It's fiction.
Summary: Senator Nathaniel Fick of Maryland decides to run for president in 2024 election. What happened before, what happens after and what Brad thinks about all of this.

Part One # Part Two (A) # Part Two (B) and Epilogue




Author's Notes:

Did I mention I'm a little nervous? Well, I am.

Everything I know about American politics, I've learned from The Daily Show, The West Wing and Obama 2008 presidential campaign. And, yes, Wikipedia, too. I tried to make this story as believable and realistic as possible, so I'm sorry if I made any mistakes.

The title of the fic is from The National's song Baby, We'll Be Fine.

And now, as I said, I have a lot of people to thank:

[livejournal.com profile] noelia_g for a lot of things, especially for organizing and hosting the one and only Camp Big Bang (which was crazy and AWESOME!), betaing the story and not thinking it sucks, and supporting me through all this in general. You make my GK fannish experience a lot of fun and I really appreciate it.
And as I promised: thanks to your Grandma for all the food!

[livejournal.com profile] cala_jane for crazy and awesome Camp Big Bang and all the support for someone who is writing her first Big Bang. ;) And for not writing as fast as Noelia during CBB, because then I'd feel bad. xD

[livejournal.com profile] swiiftly for agreeing to be my beta, dealing with my mistakes and giving me positive feedback afterwards. Thank you so much!

Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] aubreyrose and [livejournal.com profile] lunatics_word, for making the art for my bigbang! I appreciate everything you made for this story and I hope you had fun doing it! :)

And of course thanks to [livejournal.com profile] warbigbang mods: [livejournal.com profile] exsequar and [livejournal.com profile] zippitgood for organizing the whole thing! I hope we will do this again next year!

deal with it:)

you may have already seen it, but this picture made me instantly think about your fic, when Brad thinks "deal with it" during Nate's speech:)
