If you like your found-family stories full of angst and foreboding, you're in the right place.
Let's start with how Arthur met Dutch...and Hosea...and Grimshaw... Except it's not the beginning. Not quite yet.
First time joining in with a challenge like this but I am all about the whump and angst…
Happy, uh, whumping?
An A-Z of Death Stranding reflections from Sam’s POV, post-game (obvious spoiler alert)
There’s so much he needs to tell her. So much he’s gonna have to teach her. But what the hell does he know? And where does he even begin?
He starts with the alphabet because even though she can’t speak and doesn’t even know what the fuck a letter is, he figures it’s a fundamental thing you’re meant to teach kids and she seems to like the rhythm and recitation of it as he walks. And somewhere between there and the next mountain the letters turn into words…
Fair warning, this is going to be gratuitously fluffy and angsty. So, y’know, firmly on brand.
I’m gonna try to cross-reference and link to related entries as I go to create a whole interwoven network of connections (ahhhh see what I did there?) so please feel free to suggest any specific words you’d like me to include in the comments. If I can include them I will, and if not, I’ll try to incorporate them into the referencing system somehow!
"I see great things in our future, kid. Great things..."
Ok, so I started out writing an expanded backstory for Uncharted 3 (in which Sully has a brand new apprentice, but hasn't factored in the fact that there's a second Drake brother to deal with...) and somehow it morphed into an epic novel-length behemoth tracking Sully's perspective all the way from Cartegena to the end of UC4. Because why not write 100k about these dorks and their angst-ridden found family? I mean, who needs a life?
[P.S. We're currently heading into UC3 proper and my update schedule is... not a schedule. There will be hiatuses, but I promise I'll reach the epilogue eventually.]
[P.P.S. This originally follows on from a reference to Sam ending up in a Cartegenian jail in Chapter 2 of 'To Baby Drake' - you might wanna read it first but it's not essential.]

Set after the events of Chapter 8, Din discovers his armour isn't working quite the way it should do. In fact, it's becoming a dangerous and inconvenient pain in the ass. But the Armourer is nowhere to be found and he must seek out a specialist engineer to help him fix it...
It was Greef who recommended her. Of course he ‘knew a guy’. Or woman, in this case.
“An engineer of extraordinary talent,” Greef had said over the holo-com. And she would have to be, if she was going to be able to handle Mandalorian armour. Din would much rather have sought out the Armourer, of course, but there had been no trace of her – or any of the covert – since Navarro, and he was starting to get desperate. A Mandalorian without functioning armour was nothing at all.
