    Summary

    As Deacon deals with being trapped in the Institute’s confines and what that means for both the Commonwealth and himself, those he left behind in the Wasteland band together to aid his escape in anyway that they can. They find help from an unexpected ally in the form of another fabled vault dweller. But as the Brotherhood of Steel makes themselves known in the Commonwealth, and the Institute pushes harder and harder on the Railroad, it becomes clear that the real fight for the fate of the Commonwealth has only just begun.

    Summary

    Hindsight is a bitch.

    This is one of the few things Deacon could truthfully say he was absolutely certain of. There’s always a better decision you could have made. A better road fate could have taken you on if only you knew that one decision would blow up in your face. And of course, you could only see the glaringly obvious problems you created after you could do nothing about it. Nothing but throw yourself a nice, little pity party and be mildly impressed by your own stupidity.

    For instance, in hindsight perhaps he shouldn’t have wiped his memories after escaping the Institute.

    In hindsight, he should have shot Cole dead the moment she stepped out of that Vault. He shouldn't have vouched for a perfect stranger just because he'd done a little bit of spying and had a soft spot for Vault Dwellers.

    In hindsight, it should have been obvious if anyone in the Wasteland was forced to re-live the same year over and over, it would have been him. His luck had always been terrible like that.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, Deacon would've said he didn't believe in fairytales.

    He knew what they were, of course. The old ones and the new. He didn't believe in fairytales, once upon a time. Then, he saw a handsome man walk out of the earth, a ghost of the past. A stolen son—imprisoned by a witch—no, the Institute. A clever guide—this one a battered old synth who the handsome man rescued from a dragon—no. Gangsters.

    Deacon didn't used to believe in fairytales.

    But these days, he thinks, he might be in one.

    But can there be a happy ending?

    Summary

    This work will just be a collection of all the sick little fics I write on my Tumblr when I'm in the mood. I figured I mind as well post them here, too. Get ready for a lot of Nick abuse.
    Some of these were also inspired by asks I received on Tumblr, so thanks to those people.

    Summary

    Deacon has plenty of experience with synths - he's shot down gen-ones, nearly been killed by Coursers, helped dozens escape the Commonwealth over the years - so he'd like to think he knows what he's doing.

    Valentine was a prototype. He doesn't fit the old molds or the new ones.
    And worst of all, he keeps calling Deacon out on every single lie.

    When it comes to Nick Valentine, he might not entirely know what he's doing.

    Summary

    After 'The Outcast Incident’ of 2279, The Lone Wanderer disappears. Some people believe he died, some think he went on to ‘fight the good fight’ somewhere else, others still, wonder if The Lone Wanderer ever existed at all. Like most things, the truth is somewhere in between.

    When Deacon arrives in the Commonwealth in 2282, he firmly believes he's given up his mantle of 'The Lone Wanderer' and wants nothing to do with his old life. He's content to lend his aid to The Railroad and through them, the people of the 'Wealth. However, as the years draw closer and closer to that fateful 2287 and the turmoil of the Commonwealth becomes impossible to avoid, Deacon will reluctantly realize that The Lone Wanderer isn't a piece of himself that he can shove in a box and ignore.

    It's who he is; above all else.

    Summary

    “S’rry for the impromptu weightlifting session, Valentine,” Deacon says, slurs, hates the way his mouth doesn’t seem to be cooperating. His face hasn’t been much more than numb since it got slammed into concrete by a particularly pissed off raider a couple of hours back. “Not saying I hate what it’ll do to your shoulders though. I like my robodetectives broad. Rrrrr.”

     

    Prompt: how 'bout Nick/Deacon with 11: “Don’t you dare throw that snowba-, goddammit!”

    Summary

    Deacon's been on his own so long, apathetic, running from his past. He's used to deception, subterfuge and lurking in the shadows. When he meet the Sole Survivor, everything changes for him. After all this time, she drags him out the darkness, into her light. He's finally found another person as capable as himself. A hero. A friend. A partner.

     

    PS : I'm sorry for any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors.
    PPS : If you're impatient, skip ahead to Chapter 33. Everything before is the slow-burn.

    Summary

    "At the beginning of the year, Deacon wouldn’t have guessed he’d come to trust some synth detective Carly had picked up in Diamond City. Of course, he also hadn’t expected to actually take down the Institute before the next decade hit."

    A bit of new years reminiscing, complaining, and, of course, a little bit of lying; after all nothing in the Commonwealth is certain.
