Fandom: Hard Core Logo/Wilby Wonderful
Pairing: Joe Dick/Duck MacDonald
Warnings: Angst, as usual :) Booze and weed.
Summary: Joe boards the ship in Vancouver, carrying a plastic bag containing five cartons of cigarettes, one for each week, four one-liter bottles of vodka and the ten grams of weed that he could afford after that. Billy's Zippo in his pocket.
Author's notes: So, this is very, very AU. Set somewhere during the late seventies/early eighties, when the guys are just out of their teens. Joe joins the crew of a fishing boat. I've taken great liberties with factual stuff - pretty much all inspiration to this story came from this incredible music video by the talented (and slightly bonkers) Icelandic art trio Ingenfrygt.
Many, many thanks to akamine_chan for her wonderful beta work, and for a couple of sentences that work so much better than my original own :)
