Earning Rations by shadowfire-x Earning Rations by shadowfire-x
My TF2 OC Medic, Dr. Nicklaus Fleischer, at a gulag near Stalingrad before his transfer to BLU.

Still being alive, let alone in decent condition, after 10 years was quite a feat...

Edit - added the dragonbreath, derp!

Ulrich cocked an eyebrow at that. "Vas it over past grievances or vas it over perceived favors from zhe guards?"

Fleischer gave a faint sigh, and shook his head slightly. "Most off die inmates had been reduced to animals... Zhey vould attack each ozzher ovah perceived slights, und snatch die rations right out off each ozzher's mouths... Off course, nicht many off die Soviet inmates cared foah zhose off us from Duetschland, foah obvious reasons..."

Ulrich nodded his agreement, as he lite up a cigarette and took a deep breath before exhaling. "Still its amazing your managed to stay in vorking condition under such extremes for so long. From vhat my Russian clients vould tell me, I vas let to believe zhey simple vorked most of zhe German POW to death vithin zhe first few years in zhe gulag."

"As for your fellow prisoners," he sighed, holding his ciggarett, his other arm wrapped around his waist. "It doez not surprize, ve German's seem to do a very good job in ripping und taring at vhat vas left of each other after zhe var."

Fleischer wrinkled his nose slightly at the smell of the cigarette smoke, but made no mention of it. "I met my quotas... so I got full rations..." at least...until the very last few months... but that had hardly been HIS fault...

"It vasn't die ozzher Deutsch inmates I had to vorry about so much as die Soviet vuns..."

An amazing feat when you actually read just how few prisoners made it!
Excellent! Poor Fleischer, you managed to capture his utter misery, but also his fortitude and iron determination here!

The only few tiny things I would change would be his hair, it's to neat and its really windy there. Prisoners weren't allowed gloves, but may would have wrapped and wound rags or anything else they could salvage around their hands and fingers. And you know Fleisher's breath would becoming out in clouds of vapor.
Seriously, this is awesome!

AAAGH! I KNEW I had forgotten the dragonbreath... I shall fix that! And, i figured he'd have cloth or something wrapped around his hands, but for artistic purposes (and hand practice) I wanted to leave them bare to show how they were scuffed and bruised (and, perhaps his hands got sweaty so he took the rags off for a moment to dry them off?)

*nods* Makes sence, really great job on those by the way. Hands are always tough (as in a pain in the ass to draw), but sooo important. Next fic or RP someone is going to have to pay some attention to those hands. ~_^
