    Summary

    Things always tended towards whatever endgame-goal Sole pursued; and with most of the enemies standing in his way dead, there was little left to worry about. He'd spilled a lot of blood to get this far, and he was ready to spill as much more as it took.

    And now? Now he was so close. As he saw it, there was only one little thing left in his way--Deacon, the last member of the Railroad--and he was closing in on him. His relentless hunt through the Commonwealth wilds was almost up. And once that was taken care of, well... The future had always been solidly up to Sole. It would be time to end old things, and begin something new. Just one last throat to cut.

    But then, not even the most powerful man is a god; and in this world, there's always the possibility of a future left up to someone else.

    Summary

    The world is different. Bigger. Difficult. Terrifying.

    But that doesn't stop Grace from trying to find her son, herself, no matter what it takes.

    The world is different. Vast. Challenging. Unpredictable.

    It has never been easy for Deacon, the world almost always seeming out to get him.

    Somehow, under impossible circumstances, the two intertwine.

    ***

    Grace has a hard time accepting the new world. She didn't choose to be in this position. Somehow she gets through each day, and then she meets Deacon, who introduces her to an entirely different perspective of this new world. Whether she believes it or not.

    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

    "What do you call the stick with the bowl on the end?" she asks, and Deacon raises an eyebrow.

    "Uh, you lost me, Boss."

    "The thing you eat with. Like a fork or a knife but for soup," Clara says, and she's making the motion as if she's eating cereal while she's speaking, as if using the muscles will help her remember if she ever knew it.

    "A spoon?" Deacon says it almost as more of a question, like he's unsure if that's the answer or not.

    Clara snaps her fingers and grins widely. "Yes! Spoon!"

    -

    the sole survivor's first language isn't english, and deacon's first language is bullshit, so together, they make a pretty terrible team.

    Summary

    This story follows Griffin Bell, Nora's brother, from the bombs dropping to the ultimate fate of the Commonwealth. His nephew, Shaun, is his top priority, but things get tricky when he starts putting pieces together and has to choose a side. Or does he? Griffin explores his own humanity, what it means to be oneself, and answers the controversial question - can machinery truly become human?

    ---

    "You wanna know what I was doing before the bombs, Susan?! Reading comics. You wanna know what I'm gonna go do right now, Susan? Read some goddamn comics!" Griffin threw his hands up, marching into the comic store, with or without his companions.

    "Woof!" Dogmeat trotted after him, tail wagging happily.

    "Oh for the love of God. That's the guy fighting for the Commonwealth? You've gotta be shitting me."

    "We're gonna die. We're gonna fucking die."

    Summary

    “Might wanna lower your weapon, partner. You don’t know who you’re messing with.” The girl just grinned, crooked, exposing those too perfect teeth. “Yeah?” The rifle’s barrel lightened up against his leathery skin some, but she wasn’t backing down. “Tell me who you are. So I can be sure you’re not gonna raid me like him.” She jerked her eyes to Finn, then to Hancock himself.
    “You got the wrong impression of this cute little city here. This is Goodneighbor, and I…” He fisted the rifle, shoving it aside, causing her to stumble just a bit. “Am Mayor John Hancock.”
