Journal Entry No. 71:

I found the strangest thing on my last visit to the mountain. I was taking my usual path, following the trail until a strong snowstorm cast over the forest, quickly coating the ground in it's thick white blanket. I had decided that I had gone far enough when a bewildering sight caught my eye, an odd redness it seemed. My curiosity had gotten the better of me, leading my footfalls away from the beaten path to a small clearing, and the sight made my stomach churn in distaste, bile nearly rising from my throat.

Nine. Nine frozen corpses in this desolate part of the mountain. All without a single soul to remember them, name or face.

 It was when I was examining the poor souls when I came across the strange sight. A single dove, white feathers stained red-no doubt from the man whose hand was inches away-bundled safely in a nest made from a blue striped scarf, also coated in red patches. Next to the small mass was a note, once again stained in this man's blood. I quickly picked it up, reading the messy scrawl that was most definitely written just moments before his passing.

'His name is Archimedes. Please take care of him. - Medic'

 I was so astounded by my discovery that I had almost overlooked the poor creature's shivering. Forgoing the others, I slowly lifted the avian from it's hiding place and held it's small form close, grabbing the lukewarm scarf from the frozen ground and wrapping it underneath the red-stained dove. Once I had made my quick escape home, I immediately placed the dove close to the crackling fire, watching as it slowly regained it's vigor, flying about the cabin. Once I was certain of it's energy, I gave him a good wash, scrubbing away the memories of yesterday and watching them flow down the drain. The little bird didn't seem to mind, thoroughly occupied by the wet splashes he made hopping about the shallow water.

 The next morning I returned to the forsaken battleground, my new companion sitting calmly on my shoulder. I scoured the bodies for any evidence of identity, but in the end I only knew of two, the Medic and a boy whose dog tags read 'Scout'. I felt guilty for the young man's poor choice of occupation, but I knew what's done was done. I picked up the shovel I had brought with me and slaved away at digging the nine graves; it was the most honor I could offer, even with not knowing their names, and I didn't want to wait until spring, I don't think I could handle the smell.

 Eventually, after the sun had all but set, I had managed to finish my duties, each grave head-capped with a stone and something I had taken from their bodies.

 A helmet.
 A gas mask.
 A sniper rifle, hat, and sunglasses.
 A workers hardhat and goggles.
 A grenade launcher.
 A well-used butterfly knife.
 An old machine gun.

 The only marked graves belonged to Scout and the man titled Medic. I felt slightly unhappy with the gravestone-not having known anything about the others, not even a title-yet there was nothing I could do. Before I buried the dove's original owner, I stripped him of the mechanical pack and coat he wore. The pack was useless, having been torn to pieces by some ferocious foe at some point, so I left it at the stone's base. The coat I set aside, since Archimedes had taken a liking to it, and returned my gaze to this 'Medic'. I removed his glasses, setting them with the coat, before finally pushing the dirt over the man, sealing his corpse in his final resting place. I had gone through the honor of crossing his hands over his chest, like I had done with the others, to give some semblance of a proper burial.

 I stood before the blank stones, hands folded in front of me, silently conveying my respect to these unsung heroes before heading home, my white friend perched on my shoulder all the while. He has been with me for a few months now, happily following me throughout the day and cooing contently on my shoulder. The Medic's glasses sit on my desk, protected in a glass case from dust and all sort of hazards while his coat had been immortalized in a frame that is now hanging on my wall. Archimedes is next to me right now, happily eating bird seed from a small plate; however I do believe he has not forgotten his old master. I sometimes find him sitting atop the glass case, sleeping soundly or hiding away in the still stained scarf-which I hadn't washed in fear of erasing the man's scent. I had at one time tried to let the dove use the cloth as a nest, but he simply wouldn't have it. As if, he knew he would remove the smell of the Medic from it. This man loved Archimedes, and the snow white dove knew, and will never forget. 

I promise, Medic, I will take care of Archimedes for you.

For as long as I have left.


End Journal.

Woah...This is the first picture that's hit me in the "Feels For Animals" section of the feels. 
*Sniff*

No...don't be cold and alone Archimedes.
*Scoops up the trembling bird wrapped in the BLU Medic's scarf*
*Hold the poor thing to my chest*
It's gonna be OK now *Coos* (No pun intended (no seriously lol))
*Takes the bird home in car, tears streaking down face as I drive*
*Gets home and immediately gathers up blankets and sets them in front of the fireplace, which I then turn on*
*Places the Archimedes bundle of scarf and cold, wet feathers in the midst of the blankets*
*Archimedes shudders and snuggles up*
*I stroke the bird lightly, then go to my room for a a few seconds to try and cry the image burnt in my head of Medic lying dead in the snow, which was stained red around him*
*I keep sobbing for a little while then go back to check the bird* (Yeah, I'm that paranoid)
*I pick up the bundle and hold it to my chest again, sniffling and cradling it with delicate care so as not to wake the dove*
It's gonna be OK...
*Shuddering breath*
It'll be OK.
