    Summary

    “A kid’s always going to want their mom.”
    “In whatever form she comes in”

    John Hancock once spoke those words on a return trip to the Glowing Sea. Somehow Nora didn't think he truly meant them, not as she was now. Nuka World ripped everything away. With it, she lost every hope of getting to the institute and finding her son. From below her bedroom on top of Fizz-Top Mountain, she watched the dogs and vultures as they milled about the day below. They were all the same. Always picking apart the remains until nothing was left. Then they begged for more.

    Summary

    The Commonwealth is a safer place now that the Institute is no longer a threat. With no war to worry about, one would think Danse and Nora would have time to figure out if they can find a future together. A lot has been going on in his head after he asked for the memories of the person who was captured by the Institute.

    Even though Danse has been in Sanctuary as he comes to terms with his nature and how that has influenced the fate of the Commonwealth, he hasn't seen Nora in over a month. It's not that he doesn't want to see her, she just hasn't come home in all that time.

    When Nora finally returns for what's supposed to be some downtime for her, a last-minute help request from a settlement has her back on the road again. It was going to be a simple mission until Danse volunteered to go with her.

    Summary

    Nora Cartwright heads out into the Commonwealth in search of her husband's killer and her son's kidnapper. She then learns of the Institute and how it's been causing distrust and pain throughout the Commonwealth. If something isn't done about them soon, it could be too late to stop them.

    With little to lose, Nora finds many rallying around her in order to finally track down the Institute and end their schemes. One such ally is Paladin Danse, who has willingly undertaken Nora's untraditional and complicated sponsorship in the hopes of finding the Institute quickly and improving the Brotherhood's public image, but Nora begins to wonder if there's more to this arrangement.

    As it becomes clear just how far the Institute has been able to infiltrate the factions within the Commonwealth, Nora comes up with a plan to use one of their own creations against them. She just hopes she's forgiven afterwards.

    Summary

    Captain Zao was a man with regrets. He regrets every day the launching of nukes that destroyed America, despite the orders he was under. He regrets hitting the mine that dammed both his ship and his crew. He regrets watching his crew go mad as their skin sloughed off in pieces, and the growls bubbled up from their throats. Zao was a man who lingered in his own stew of grief and loss.

    He had no goals, no one to save. Until he met her.

    (Based on the Fallout 4 quest Here There Be Monsters, where you help a Chinese submarine captain fix his ship and return home. Slightly AU to the original quest, but spoilers ahead just in case you haven't played the mission.)

You'll learn how the Enclave, a few key points of what happened before the Great War, then you'll learn about what happened to one small town after the war and how they dealt with the aftermath of the war.

With the end world as people knew it, and people still dying and the worse still yet to come, how will the survivors going to handle it all? Crossover with the post-apocalyptic TV show Jericho.

    Summary

    When Nora discovered that her husband really had been murdered, and her son kidnapped, she reverted to the training she had received before meeting Nate, when she was a Harvard law student by day, and an operative for a black agency by night. Of course, her training hasn't exactly prepared her for what she's discovering in the new, post-war Commonwealth.

    Summary

    Bryleen Eleonora “Nora” McClaren woke up eight months ago to find her husband Nate murdered and her infant son Shaun missing. In those months since she discovered that she was the sole survivor of her vault, she has become the General of the ragtag Commonwealth Minutemen, an Agent of the mysterious Railroad, and a Knight in the recently arrived Brotherhood of Steel. As Nora the lawyer from Sanctuary Hills fades away and Bryleen the wasteland warrior takes hold, she is left disheartened and confused about what she really wants.
    After Goodneighbor’s favorite mayor comments on her choice of companion, Bryleen finally steps back and takes a look at her lonely lifestyle. Maybe it’s time to find a person to travel the Commonwealth with, someone to trust. But who can she risk her safety on, and possibly even her heart?

    Summary

    This is an alternate canon/retelling of the classic John Ford western "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" in the Fallout universe - and while it diverges from the canon of both, I tried not to stray too far.

    Nora, a proud self-proclaimed lawyer, finds herself in a post-war Commonwealth before Vic's dictatorship in Goodneighbor has come to an end, which coincidentally is before new-ghoul John McDonough has adopted his Hancock persona. After a run in with Vic in the Fens, she quickly becomes one of his favorite targets, and John feels compelled to protect her.
