Hi 👋 could you please do Babe Heffron falling in love headcanons? Like what he thinks/feels/acts? Thank you 💗💗💗
Aahhh Hi anon, thank you so much for this request 💖 I've got quite the soft spot for Babe so I'm excited to do this one😁
He starts off with flirting.
I'm talking cringe level 1000. ("Did it hurt when you fell from heaven, because baby with eyes like that you gotta be an angel.")
You tell him he's an idiot, but you're amused so you and he get to actually talking and end up being friends.
So much bantering and bickering
He becomes really protective of you then. He'll mind your drink when you're out and he's the first to defend you if someone starts being an idiot.
He's completely blindsided with the feelz
It happens one day when he's watching you go toe to toe with Bill Guarnere and wow you can hold your ground and holy crap have you always looked so damn gorgeous.
Once he realises "shit, I have feelings for her" he gets all shy and blushy around you.
He goes out of his way to be helpful and nice to you, which makes you automatically suspicious.
You call him out on it and be starts stuttering answers and gets all defensive, telling you he's "just being a good friend, it don't mean nothing else."
He's surprised when he sees a twinge of disappointment on your face at that. He starts to wonder if maybe you could have feelings for him too.
So he tries harder. He's extra extra sweet. He gives you a million compliments a day. He's convinced that surely now you'll see how you really feels about you without him having to actually tell you.
You're obviously incredibly confused because he'd told you that you were just friends so now why was he hamming it up with the compliments?
So you get mad at him and telling quit mucking you around.
Then he's confused. There's lots of confusion.
He goes to Bill for advice, tells him the whole sorry story from start to finish.
Bill laughs in his face and Babe has had quite enough so he's about to leave when Bill tells him to "sit down and shuddup cassanova."
Once Bill helps Babe see what he's done wrong, Babe feels awful. The last thing he wanted was to hurt you. He's in love with you for Chrissake.
Now that makes him clam up. He hadn't even realised how bad he had it for you, but now he's acknowledged it he realises it's been you all along.
So he came up with the ultimate plan.
He turned up at your door with a big bunch of flowers and chocolates.
You weren't gonna let him in but he begged for a chance and really, how could you say no?
So he came in, gave you the flowers and then before he could second guess himself the words came out a mile a minute.
"I'm really sorry I hurt you and confused you but the truth is I'm in love with you and I always have been I was just too much of an idiot to admit it or say it out loud but I'm saying it now so whaddya say?"
He thinks his heart is gonna leap out of his throat he's so nervous and why the hell aren't you saying anything?
He can't quite believe his luck when you march over and kiss him.
"You're an idiot, Babe Heffron, but you're my idiot and I love you too."
And yeah, he's grinning like a total idiot because his girl loves him back and if that isn't just the best thing ever
Oh I had soooooo much fun with this 🙈😍 Babe is such a...well, a babe 😂🙈 hope you all enjoy 💕

Bitter Pill to Swallow
Chapter 5 (Ch.4, Ch.3, Ch.2, Ch.1)
Thank you as always to @tvserie-s-world for the lovely screencaps 💕
It had been five days since they'd set sail for England, and safe to say tensions were starting to fray. Valerie was lucky to be bunking with Harry, but even they'd had a few disagreements.
"If you don't quit your snoring I'm gonna strap you to the bow to scare off the sharks," he'd sworn one early morning, tying his shirt buttons roughly.
"My snoring?" Valerie replied incredulously, "I'm surprised you can hear me snoring over the droning of your own."
She was playing a game of fish with George when the fight of the day broke out. She'd been laughing at his master plan to snag an English dame when they'd overheard Bill Guarnere talking shit. Valerie looked up in alarm when she noticed Lieb jumping down from his bunk and getting up in Bill's face. She sighed and jumped down herself, intending to step in between them and prevent any fists from flying.
"Hey, hey," she shouted, pulling Lieb back behind her "break it up you two, and watch your damm mouth Gonnorhea. Quit talking shit about Jews, you know where we're going and who we're fighting so why don't you show some goddamn respect. " She put a hand on Lieb's shoulder to steer him back towards his bunk. "Don't listen to him Lieb, he's just being an idiot."
As they moved away they heard Bill grumbling something about 'goddamn woman must be on the rag," and Valerie saw red. She dropped her hand from Lieb's shoulder and marched back towards Bill.
"You wanna say that again to my face Guarnere?" snapped Valerie, "who do you think you are saying things like that about a ranking officer?"
Don was desperately trying to pull Bill away, warning him to cut it out before he gets himself in more trouble. A hush settled in the immediate area surrounding them, everyone afraid to intervene but too nosy to look away.
"I said what I said," Bill snarled, pulling his arm out of Don's and clenching his jaw. Valerie narrowed her eyes at him and glared coldly.
"I'm gonna give you one more chance to take that back Guarnere," Valerie warned, crossing her arms. She felt Lieb step up beside her protectively, and even though she didn't need it she was eternally grateful for him in that moment. He had her back, and he wanted her to know it.
"I ain't taking nothing back, I said what I said," he insisted, ignoring Don's contined pleas for him to back down.
Valerie narrowed her eyes at Bill, her fingers clenching against her crossed arms and her face reddening. Beside her, Lieb was clenching his fists so hard she was sure they'd split open at the knuckles.
"You really don't know when to shut your damn mouth do you?" Snapped Lieb, stepping forward and raising his fist for another go at Bill. But Valerie threw her arm across his chest and stopped him, shaking her head and silently trying to tell him that she could deal with this herself. He huffed but stepped back beside her, continuing to glare harshly at Bill.
"Well you know what gonorrhea," Valerie hissed coldly, stepping up to him "next time why don't you say that to my fists huh? Because you are sorely mistaken if you don't think I could punch you so hard you'd be seeing Lady Liberty dancing the jive."
Bill was about to respond when they were interrupted by a stern voice.
"What's going on here?" Asked Lieutenant Winters, who'd appeared behind Valerie without her noticing. She took a few deep breaths before turning on her toes to face him.
"Nothin' for you to worry about Lieutenant Winters," she replied. He glanced between her and Bill sceptically, his eyebrows furrowing as he assessed the situation.
"Well," he said evenly, "whatever fight was going on here that you don't want me to know about, break it up. We've got a lot of training and work to do once we get to England so use these next five days wisely and take all the rest you can get."
The men who'd gathered on the floor dispersed hastily with a few 'yes sir's'. With one final lingering glare, Bill and Valerie turned away from each other and went their separate ways. She was about to follow Lieb up to his bunk when a tap on her shoulder stopped her.
"Could I talk to you up on deck Lieutenant?" He asked tightly. Val stared him down for a moment before nodding her agreement and following him up the steps and onto the breezy deck.
"So, what was it you wanted to talk about?" She asked after a few beats of awkward silence. His shoulders tensed and he looked out over the ocean for a few seconds before speaking.
"Lieutenant Landry, I don't want you to think I'm criticising you but..."
Look," she snapped, crossing her arms over her chest, "whatever it is you gotta say to me jus' get on with it."
He sighed and scrubbed a hand over his face roughly. "I really don't want to fight fight you so please, don't get all offended about this," he paused in his speech and took a deep breath before continuing, "you're a ranking officer Landry, you cant just go around threatening your NCO's, or any of the men for that matter. It's completely out of line."
"Out of line?," she hissed, narrowing her eyes, her temper immediately flaring at his accusing tone, "Guarnere was out of line makin' comments about Jews and then disrespectin' me. So I think I had every right to say what I said, an' I'd say it again too. You weren't even there, you have no idea what happened before you turned up."
"Then tell me," he sighed, "tell me what happened and I'll go down there and deal with Bill right this minute."
"I just told you, he was making comments about Jews and then he disrespected me," she explained tersely, "And I don't need you to go down there and deal with it. I was dealin' with it jus' fine until you showed up." She couldn't believe he was standing there reprimanding her, nor that he wanted to play the white knight and go deal with the situation for her. She had been handling the situation and herself just fine before he showed up.
"I understand that Guarnere is difficult, and I have no doubt he was running his mouth and deserved a reprimand," Winters groaned, "but you still shouldn't have spoken to him like that, especially in front of the rest of the men. You should have officially reprimanded him in a calm way like a ranking officer should."
He was questioning her capabilities as an officer. He honestly believed that she couldn't behave like an officer should. They'd never been friends, hell, they couldn't even have a conversation, but she'd always grudgingly respected that he was a good officer. She'd never once doubted his capabilities as a leader.
In a deep buried part of her, though she'd never admit it, his words stung. His doubts of her capabilites hurt. She had a level of respect for him that obviously he didn't have for her. She'd thought that despite all the tension between them, she could at least count on the fact that he'd respect her position as a Lieutenant. Clearly she'd been wrong.
"Oh, so you doubt my capabilities as an officer is that it?" She snapped defensively, "and for your information, you missed the part where I very calmly told him to take back what he said. You're making a whole lot of assumptions based on the tiny part of the conversation you saw, but I can't say I'm surprised. You've obviously never respected my place in Easy and now the truth of your thoughts has finally come out."
Dick shook his head and ran his tongue over his teeth, his jaw tensing slightly. "That's not what I meant and you know it, stop putting words in my mouth. You're quite possibly the most impossible person I've ever met." He placed his hands on his hips and looked out over the sea once more. "I never said I didn't respect your position as a Lieutenant, I just meant you should have reprimanded Guarnere more calmly."
His patronising was just making her more mad. He really had the nerve to stand there and act like he was better than her when he couldn't possibly understand the situation. "You implied I didn't behave like a proper officer, so please do tell me what you actually meant when you said that because I'd just love to know."
"I didn't mean it like that, so I'm sorry if that's how it came across to you," he huffed, trying to keep his emotions in check, "Just don't talk to your subordinates like that anymore, alright? We've got more than enough to worry about without fights between the officers and the enlisted." He turned to leave without waiting for her to respond any further.
She watched him walk away from her, her simmering temper roiling. Why that sanctimonious prat. She'd just love to see what he would have done if he were in her shoes.
"You know what Winters," she shouted at his retreating back, unable to stop herself from getting in the last word, "I'd like to see you spend a day in my shoes and keep your goddamn cool." Now that she'd started she couldn't stop, all of her frustrated feelings pouring out of her now she'd opened the floodgates a crack.
"I'd like to see you stand there while Guarnere mocks you and says you're just an angry woman on the rag and not get mad. So don't you stand there and patronise me about propriety. Because you know what, if you could actually manage to keep your cool in that situation I'd reckon you were a goddamn saint."
She stormed past his frozen form and marched out the door without a backwards glance, slamming it harshly behind her. Now then, let him stew on that for awhile. She pointedly ignored the twinge of hurt she felt at his words, furiously tampering it down and smothering it with her anger as she marched back to her cabin.
