winnix so you say
title: illusion

characters: winnix

rating: g

category: daily drabble

disclaimer: I don't own Band of Brothers. This is entirely fictional and based off the characters as portrayed in the miniseries, not the men themselves. I mean no offense to these men, whom I respect very much.
