    Summary

    **Chapter 24 now posted!!**

    Desdemona is asking him to do the hardest thing he’s done in years, and not for the reason she thinks. It’s not because she’s asking him to risk his life. It’s because she’s asking him to stand still and pretend to live it.

    When Deacon hatches a plan to get the General of the Minutemen to help the Railroad, he doesn't count on it including an assignment to live in the settlement with him. He doesn't count on it waking up ghosts he's been trying to keep buried. He doesn't count on it including a working relationship (and sharing a house) with an asshole mercenary that he can't stand. Worse than that, he doesn't count on actually learning to like the guy.

    Summary

    “Traitor.” Was that Glory? “You goddamn traitor!”
    There was a clattering as the inhabitants rose to their feet. Glory was standing between Dez and Wanderer, her mini gun drawn. She was about to fire when Wanderer stopped her.
    “G7-81 initiate reset. Authorization code Beta 3 Cirrus.” Two sentences were all it took for The Posterchild of a Liberated Synth to drop to the floor, emotionless. Glory might as well have been dead.
    Wanderer stood over Glory, disinterest distorting her face. She looked like she had just swatted an annoying fly. Her eyes were cold, the warmth - the hope they always held was replaced with contempt. Wanderer’s clothes were unnaturally clean, not a single blood stain or tear was in her flannel. Black hair tied back in a tighter bun than she normal. Deliverer was drawn, held casually at her side. A chill went down Deacon’s spine. Something was wrong. Very wrong.

    Summary

    "Dogmeat...I don't think I'm in Boston anymore."

    Dorothy hated the irony behind her name. Almost as much as she hated putting her education on a standstill to help her father and stepmother take care of a new baby boy they had just given birth to so that Nora could get back in the office and Nate could continue his job hunt. But when the bombs drop and the world is turned to ash, Dorothy and her family are forced to retreat into the local vault, unbeknownst to the horrific cryogenic experiment they would be part of that would secure them in the vault for over two hundred years.

    When Dorothy is finally awakened, she is unleashed on a hunt for blood and her baby brother, Shaun.

    "I'm fighting for two hundred years of college, student loans, and sex that Vault-Tec stole from me, MacCready! Don't tell me that I'm being unreasonable! The second that I find the fucking Institute, they're going to be writing me a fat paycheck,"
    "...what about the other thing?"
    "Jesus Christ, Mac, was sex all you heard?"
    "With legs like those and a mouth like yours, it's hard not to hear anything else, gorgeous."

    Summary

    There wasn’t much happening underneath the Old North Church at this hour. Wanderer was leaning back in the couch Tinker Tom had convinced Drummer Boy to help him drag to his makeshift workshop, the fraying fabric scratching the base of her neck as she rested her had against it.
    Tom had been on a tangent for the last fifteen minutes or so and she had been tuning him in and out as he continued.
    Wanderer took a deep breath, rich with mildew, dust, and cigarette smoke. Shifting her attention from the man next to her to the rest of the catacombs.
    The constant whispering of the catacombs draft, the beeping of the code coming through the radio, the clacking of a pencil, the occasional paper flip, all fell into a soft rhythm behind Toms voice. Now and again she could hear the foundation of the church settling.

    Summary

    Deacon finally meets his match, and then some.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "...I’m also a fan of ‘That’s a nice outfit. It would look better on my floor.’”

    He snorted, “Has that ever actually worked for anyone in the history of time and space?”

    She smiled at him with a cheeky sort of charm, “I dunno, honey. Why don’t you try it and we’ll see?”

    Deacon about choked on his beer and she giggled at him while sipping her drink. He shook his head and was surprised to find he didn’t have to fake the disappointment in his voice, “Can’t. Don’t have my own floor.”

    Nora shrugged at that. “Well, in that case…”, her eyes moved over him slowly. It made him feel like a nervous kid. “That’s an awfully sexy outfit you’re wearing, Andy. I bet it would look better on my floor.”

    Bad idea. Bad idea. Bad idea. “Oh yeah? Where’s this floor at?” Like he didn’t already know.

    She smiled, took his hand and stood. “I’ll show you.”

    (Note: This is my magnum opus revenge story for Bethesda not allowing anyone to romance this sad egg. Buckle up, kids, stuff's about to get dark and dirty.)

    Summary

    Shaking her head, she ran her fingers through her messy hair. “It’s more interesting than it sounds.” She confessed, head tilting when her smile warmed up with an emotion he couldn’t place. “Thank you.”

    “For?” John pressed, confused. “Just doin’ what everyone should and bein’ nice to ya?”

    Nora nodded, her smile falling when she looked down at the couch cushions, fingers fiddling with the torn holes brandishing them here and there.

    Summary

    The dog besides Wanderer lowered into a growl, which was never a good sign. And it was an even worse sign whenever he growled looking towards the sky towards the roof of a building, as he was now.
    A sniper. She could deal with that. Provided that she saw them before they saw her. Wanderer ducked behind a building, pulled out Tinker Tom Special, and began combing the top of the building Dogmeat was staring at. The sun was being to rise which meant that after she got rid of this guy, she’d make it back to HQ with enough time for Carrington to wake up and be his normal grumpy instead of his I-just-woke-up pissed.
    Dogmeat growled again as she found the target through her scope. A scavenger, probably. She would’ve thought he was just watching the view until he pulled out a rifle of his own.
    Did she really need to do this? He looks so young, maybe he was just taking out a raider or a stray mutant hound. Better safe than dead, Wander. She could practically hear Deacon’s voice chiding in her head with how many times he had repeated similar lines at her. But still, Wanderer wasn’t used to just killing someone because they might be a threat.

    Summary

    Elisabeth didn't think when the bombs dropped she'd be waking up 210 years later to an irradiated wasteland, helping her neighbor rescue his kidnapped son, and avenging his murdered wife, but here she is somehow still in one piece. Except, there's more to her past than even she knows, and some pre-War mysteries have a way of transcending time. Eventual Deacon/F!SS-OC; hinted M!SS/Cait.

    Also posted on FF.N--I'm lame and cross-post like a dweeb.
