- Fallout 4 (3)
Nate Cooper, Sole Survivor of Vault 111, just wants to find his son. Unfortunately for him there's so much he has to do to save the Commonwealth first.
This fic was born from my desire to impart a real timeline to the events of the game. We all know it doesn't really matter what order you complete quests in, but that's just not realistic. I did have to mess around with canon in order to make it more realistic, but the main plot of the story is still intact. I also changed a lot of the dialog because I loathe re-reading game dialog that i can practically quote. I did keep some, but I change about 80% of it.
(I also am maybe just a little in love with Deacon so this is a self-indulgent fic.)
This is not the first fan-fiction that I have written, but it is the first one that I've posted so please take it easy on me. I am completely and totally obsessed with Fallout so this is my attempt to channel some of that obsession into something more productive.
Special thanks to my beta Stoleneyes618, without their support this fic probably would never have been posted.
*This will be updated twice a week, most likely Tuesdays and Thursdays*
Fandoms: Fallout 4
15 Apr 2019
The gun shoved into his ribs burns like hot coals and the wound on his arm from the feral ghoul stings enough for him to flinch, but nothing hurts more than the betrayal he can read in her blue eyes.
“I swear to you, Haylen. I never meant for it to come to this.” Deacon’s words are pleading. For a second he thinks that maybe his desperation has gotten through to her. Instead he watches the hurt switch to anger. Her hand is pressed so tightly against him that he feels the moment when her finger slides down to pull the trigger. He registers the sound of gunfire and then he’s plunged into darkness.
Deacon follows the vault dweller into the Brotherhood hoping to convince her to join the Railroad instead. His plan goes awry when Nora is removed from his squad and he's left to navigate Recon Squad Gladius by himself.
Nora goes to the institute and finds information that suggests she might be a synth. How does she react to this news? How does Deacon, her partner turned lover?
