ON THE WRONG SIDE OF HEAVEN, AND THE RIGHTEOUS SIDE OF HELL


Off the coast of Normandy, France
8th Infantry Brigade, 3rd Canadian Infantry Division
Codename: Juno
June 6th, 1944 - D-Day


The guy beside me at the back of the lander, Marshall, was seasick. I couldn't blame him; we were getting tossed around pretty bad. Everyone else was sending up silent prayers while I stood there, watching Marshall throw his guts up in the corner. I'd never been much for religion; my dog tags said I was roman catholic, but I wasn't about to start praying then. Standing crammed between my brothers in arms, boots getting spattered with someone else's vomit, I was just glad I'd never been claustrophobic. Lucky me. Or not quite... the silence from my regiment was unnerving. There's something wrong with dozens of guys crammed into a tin can, not saying a word to each other. Off in the distance we could all hear death's orchestra, well under way - I guess we wanted to listen a while, maybe we wanted to learn the rhythm before joining in. That had to be it, because nobody said a word.

We were close. The door was about to come down - the door protecting us from a hailstorm of bullets. Just like that, the silence was broken by our Commanding Officer - he was yelling something about tactics, plans, some sort of last minute pep talk over the gunfire. I didn't listen; I was busy picking Marshall off the floor. Sand grated against the bottom of the boat and it lurched to a stop, still buffeted by waves. Down went the gate and our CO stepped up, screaming 'go, go, go' as he waved us out to greet the chaos on the beach to the cracks of machine gun fire. We were piling out, ready for the shitstorm out there; ready to fight. Adrenaline kicked in the second that door came down.

But then the first thing I saw of real battle was my CO's head parted from his shoulders. One second it was there, the next it was gone. I think I blinked. The worst part was that he stayed standing there for a few seconds, that arm still waving us all out of the lander. For those long seconds it took for the rest of his body to realize it was missing something fuckin' important, the only difference was that he'd stopped yelling.

For everyone in that lander, the valor and glory of combat were shown for the cheap lies they were in less than ten seconds. We'd all been fed a lie and we'd lapped it up eagerly like the stupid kids we were. Most of us, anyway. Later, the horror of what we experienced on that beach would be stripped down to something called the Battle of Normandy. We called it hell.

SOMETIMES YOU TELL THE DAY BY THE BOTTLE THAT YOU DRINK


The empty bottle rolls off the couch, and the hollow thunk against the floorboards jolts you awake, away from the gruesome scene playing over and over in your head. You don't need to breathe, but your chest is heaving, dark hair pasted to your forehead by cold sweat. For once, there's silence instead of screams. You're safe - you just passed out in the living room after downing a bottle of Jack. Again. It's dark and you're inside, at home in Ravenblack, not Bergen. Thousands of miles and seventy years separate you from Belsen, but the smell still chokes you every time it haunts your dreams. Sickness, rot, smoke. Death.

God? Are you there?

When was the last time you had this nightmare? It must have been years. It wasn't your handiwork; you weren't responsible for that massacre, but you'd seen the aftermath. You'd stood on the edge of that pit and stared down at corpses so distorted by starvation that it was hard to believe they'd ever lived. But you know they had - you knew it then, too. You could smell it. They said that one pit held five thousand bodies, but you still don't really believe it. All those arms and legs jumbled together, it looked like more. It looked like less.

Where are you? Where were you then?

There's no comfort in the living room or anywhere else. It's not quite dark outside - you can see the light creeping through the window coverings - but even if it were, you can't run from your own mind. The best you can do is get up, take your hangover and crawl to the bathroom to wash the sweat off your skin.

I could use your help...

The cold water helps. Leaning over the bathroom sink, staring at your own reflection dripping icy water doesn't. Not when you can't even look yourself in the eye. It's not the first time you slouch there, afraid to confront everything you've seen, and it won't be the last. Someday, you tell yourself for the thousandth time, Someday you'll deal with this, but not today. Today you just need another bottle. You just need to sleep. So that's what you do - you walk away and stumble back to the kitchen. There's another bottle hiding somewhere, there has to be.

Please, God?

You asked for God and found Jack instead.

AFFLICTIONS
    BRAIN DAMAGE
      Several metal shards remain embedded in Vex's brain following an explosion near the end of WWII. Although mostly healed, severe trauma to the pons, occipital and temporal lobe shortly after his turning has left permanent damage. This damage manifests itself in the form of short term memory loss, interference with long term memory, general disinterest in sex, increased aggression, achromatopsia, and impairment of involuntary eye movement/function.
    PTSD
      Although mostly under control, Vex still suffers from occasional PTSD episodes. Unexpected loud, booming noises, gunshots, increased periods of stress, and interpersonal conflict can trigger flashbacks, nightmares, periods of avoidance, and general apathy.
    ACHROMATOPSIA
      Partly psychosomatic, partly as a result of severe brain damage, Vex is completely unable to distinguish any kind of color and sees the world completely in shades of grey. Although he can't perceive color visually, he is afflicted with synesthesia whereby he is able to 'taste' color; this ability has faded over the years, however, to the point where it is barely functional.
