    “I mean,” she said. “Here we are on a fun family vacation to Nuka World, me and my husband and my boys, just when they’re at the perfect age to really enjoy the magic of it all, and we get jumped right off the train by a bunch of assholes dressed as--” She looked around again. “Hey, what the fuck are you guys dressed as?”

    Summary

    (Holy crap, it's surreal and amazing to see my work and characters pop up on autocomplete here)

    My first Slave Breakers in lo these many years, folks! The bidder's request:

    I'd like to see the scene between Bran and Yves suggested by this line from one of your one-shots:

    "Yves suspected that Holden was nearing the end of his tolerance for Bran's clingy behavior, though; he'd been meaning to get the kid alone, if possible, and try to reassure him. And possibly, albeit gently, fuck him."

    Accordingly, this takes place chronologically between the last two chapters of "Bran."

    Summary

    And this one is for the miscellaneous romance/pairing-focused ficlets! It might even get steamy in here!

    I'll note specific pairings and specific warnings and approximate explicitry-level on each individual chapter.

    If you have prompts, let me know here or on tumblr (maculategiraffe at) and I'll see what I can do.

    Summary

    OK guys, this is tentatively how I'm going to be organizing Ficlets Posted In This Universe, often in response to reader questions or prompts, instead of posting them as individual stories and ending up with one million one-chapter fics. This collection in particular is for stories set in this universe-- whenever and wherever-- that aren't focused on romance or pairings. If you have an idea or a prompt for this collection-- if you want to know how something went down in Nora's past that's been alluded to but not shown, or you want to know what's up with a character we haven't seen much of, or something like that-- let me know in a comment or on tumblr (maculategiraffe at) and I'll see what I can do ya for.

    Rated M for language, because, uh, I don't know if you guys have noticed but I cuss a lot

    Summary

    "The terms of your employment have altered somewhat," she says, and he feels a pulse of sheer freefalling terror, because the only thing that can mean is that something's happened to Harold, and of everything John never thought he could bear, that's the one thing he really can't. "Your agency has made the decision to... liquidate... certain of its assets. Including yourself and Mr. Finch."

    "Where's Finch?" he demands, sitting bolt upright, despite the pain, the exhaustion, the lingering grogginess from the needle. If Finch is dead, John officially doesn't care whether he lives or dies, and if he's been sold as a sex slave to someone named Daisy, he's definitely taking her out with him.

    Summary

    I ripped the duct tape off his mouth, and he immediately spat at me. It hit me in the shoulder. I heard at least two guns cock.

    “Take it easy, guys,” I said, and to him, “What’s your designation?”

    He glared up at me, eyes narrowed to slits.

    “Why are you here?”

    Glare. Silence.

    “Do you know who I am?” I tried.

    “Nora Bowman,” he said, with enough venom that it sounded like Benedict Arnold or Judas Iscariot. “The woman who destroyed Father’s life’s work, and the best hope for humanity, out of spite.”

    Part II in the "How Life Goes On, The Way It Does" series. Inspired by a conversation with leomona in the comments to the first part.

    Summary

    I hadn’t expected to go so weak at the sound of a baby’s cry. It hurt, it hurt, to remember: Shaun’s outraged howls on being born; all the nights I’d gotten up with him, nursing him and walking him until he quieted; his fussing just before the cryo-pods closed; the last time I’d heard his voice, before the end of the world.

    A brief one-shot in the "How Life Goes On, The Way It Does" post-canon universe. Takes place a month or so after the end of "Redefined."
