I sketched this last year but only just decided to finish it up. Fallout 4 has completely taken up all of my free time for the last couple of weeks. I’d completely forgotten how much I loved these nerds. @_@
My queue has finally hit the Merrill reblog spam, and from the looks of things is making this my own personal Week of Merrill. So I thought it’d only make sense to doodle my precious Daisy for the occasion!
The first one is just her being happy like she deserves, and the second is Hawke’s fave pastime of scandalizing the neighbours by walking Hightown with her Dalish wife girlfriend and Bandit.
Companions react to Sole being really into makeup?
I LOVE THIS PROMPT <3 thank you anon omg <3
Cait: She teases sole over her passion, telling her she looks really girly and it’s a waste of time in the commonwealth. She does begin to learn an appreciation for sole’s love when she teaches Cait a way to cover up the scars she’s secretly self conscious about, although still not sure in the beauty aspect, she’s grateful and respectful of the cover up techniques she’s be taught.
Curie: She helps sole create natural new palettes of eye shadows and lipsticks from the flowers they have grown, the pair will spend hours in the lab creating the perfect shades to match sole’s outfits. Curie teaches sole her favorite eyeliner and eyebrow routines while sole teaches her contouring and blending.
Codsworth: Although he didn’t understand the need for makeup or what it really added to sole’s appearance, he’d complement her every-time she tried something new, “Good work Mum! you look positively smashing!”
Dogmeat: Why is sole angry with him, all he did was roll around in the pretty colored powders he found? wasn’t he colorful like her now?
Danse: He’d told sole a million times, lipstick is not part of the brotherhood uniform especially in blood red. He didn’t mind her passion but not when she was representing the brotherhood, worried he might have insulted her though he gifted his friend with an assortment of orange and black eye products. “If you want to represent the beauty of the Brotherhood, I’d much prefer you use uniform colors”.
Deacon: He was beyond impressed and supportive of sole’s makeup obsession, the fact this contouring thing could change your whole face without the need of a scalpel was revolutionary to him. He began having sole teach him how to add new features, freckles, scars, slimmer nose ect, eventually using them himself when undercover. He even carries around his own little “tool kit” as he likes to call it.
Hancock: It made him proud to see the confidence that sole would blossom when spending a good hour or so perfecting her makeup, the smug smile and also vain vibe she gave off always made him light up. “Strut it baby!!”, “oh girl you know how to make the glitter work, show me that supermodel pout”. He’d constantly egg her on and tell her how’s she the real jewel of the commonwealth.
Nick: He’d often tell sole she was pretty and didn’t need the makeup, not realizing how offensive it sounded towards her passion, he’s and old sole and didn’t realize how his statement came across. After being yelled at by piper he apologized, telling her he didn’t mean to offend her, he began purposely going out of his way to call sole “A beautiful doll” and could “easily be hung up in a gallery” trying to show support for her talents.
Maccready: Sole tried and tried again to explain the importance of makeup and grooming to him, he never could quite understand it, he told sole it didn’t really bother him. Trying to get her point across a night before a trip to the third rail sole sculpted Mac’s beard and brows for him. He had no choice to admit the power of grooming and makeup to her after the amount of “chicks” wanting a peace of him.
Preston: Preston himself loved to be prim and proper so fully understood sole’s passion, the two would secretly swap techniques that they loved, sole careful to keep Preston’s secret, she even on occasion would use his face for practice, knowing he wouldn’t mind and loved to be of assistance, he didn’t dare leave sole’s room with it on though.
Piper: She believed the freedom to express yourself was empowering, sole’s passion and skill for makeup made her almost proud to be female, she’d tell sole how much of an artist she believed them to be, and awkwardly ask them to give her a makeover on occasion, the confidence it gave her with perfectly winged liner made her feel lucky to have a make up artist in the family.
Strong: When sole tells him red lipstick is the blood of her enemies, she expected him to be impressed,she did not expect him to be impressed to the point he greeted her one morning, her favorite lipstick smushed all round his mouth. “Strong ready for battle!!!!”
X6:88: “What do you mean you’re beating your face?! Sole are you hurting yourself in there!”. X6 kicked down sole’s bedroom door to find her applying makeup, “you said you where beating your face not painting it”. Sole couldn’t help but burst out laughing as she explained what she meant and how she wasn’t exactly painting her face either, slightly understanding he offered to help, telling the others “he couldn’t wait to help beat sole’s face”, he didn’t understand why they where so horrified.
ss finding an old piano and starts to play it (can you include maccready?) ♡
Cait: ”What’s with this sappy shite? We’ve got raiders to kill,” Cait huffs impatiently, crossing her arms. When Sole doesn’t respond, she sighs and leans on a wall. “Are you seriously gonna make me wait an’ listen to this?” Again, no response. Cait sighs and sits down on the ground, waiting for Sole to finish, and refusing to admit to herself that Sole’s song was rather lovely.
Codsworth: ”Oh mum/sir, I do remember this song. Really brings a tear to the old mechanical eye,” Codsworth said weepily. “I am so very glad that you remember, it was such a popular hobby of yours…” Codsworth drifted off into a nostalgic daze, smiling inwardly as he remembered the family he misses so.
Curie: ”This sounds beautiful, such a marvelous piece. Did you learn this before the war? It is a shame that so much art such as this has been lost,” Curie listens intently to the lovely music.
Danse: ”Must we stop?” Danse turns to look at Sole. When Sole begins to play, he sighs and decides to wait.. “This does sound very… soothing,” he says awkwardly, unsure how else to describe it. Nonetheless, he enjoys taking a break to appreciate music he rarely heard otherwise.
Deacon: ”You’re a pianist? Heh, pianist. Need me to drape myself over the piano and sing, boss? I’ll wear a sparkly dress, too,” Deacon jests, but peacefully (if a little awkwardly) enjoys the rest of the song.
Dogmeat: Dogmeat loves it, he snuggles up by Sole and even joins in a little by howling with the song.
Hancock: ”Ooh, you’re full of surprises. I haven’t heard music this pretty since Magnolia. Yeah, this is nice,” Hancock comments, getting comfortable somewhere and closing his eyes.
MacCready: ”Aw, you’re making me tear up over here,” MacCready comments snarkily, but quietly listening to the song anyways and blushing furiously when he actually begins to tear up.
Nick: ”This takes me back,” Nick smiles. “Good music is hard to come by nowadays.” He sits down and tilts his head back, relaxing as he enjoys the melody.
Piper: ”Aw, Blue. I’d never had pinned you for a pianist. This sounds… beautiful,” she smiled softly.
(I’m very sorry I had three more characters but I am extremely tired so I hope this will do)
Hey this is the anon with the rape request thingy. The reasoning behind me requesting it is because I was kinda sexually assaulted and I haven't really told many people. Idk just kinda felt like the companions could be my friends and help me forgive myself (NOT IN ANY WAY UPSET YOU DONT WANNA DO IT <3 ily)
Anon I’m so so sorry, I had no idea. Please let me make it up and if you’d like, this one is a special one to you from me as both a thanks for all your support and a way that hopefully I can help you out in some way, stay beautiful anon ily too ^-^ <3
Cait: She wasn’t entirely sure how to comfort them, although having to defend herself often while in the combat zone and through her years in slavery, she could understand their feelings. She hugged Sole tighter than ever and made a promise, one she would keep, the first being she’d forever be there for them and the second, if she ever saw the person she’d “kick their fuckin’ head in”
Codsworth: “Sir/mum… I- I’m so sorry, please… if there’s anything I can do, anything at all do not hesitate to ask, I will do my best to help you always”
Curie: She’s more upset than Sole, she keeps asking why someone would ever want to do that to another person, especially her Sole? She curls up next to them with her arms wrapped around them and her head on their chest, she just held them close, no words. Just having her with them made them feel a whole lot better
Danse: He blamed himself for not protecting them, he saw it as a negligence of duty on his part, he couldn’t apologize enough to Sole as he comforted in his arms “Don’t worry now… everythings going to be alright trust me, I promise as long as I’m here… nothing will ever hurt you again” His soft words and big arms wrapped around them made Sole feel easier as well as a lot safer knowing Danse would always be there to protect them
Deacon: Deacons chipper persona turned solemn, for a while he just sat with Sole in his arms, he felt their breath against his shirt and couldn’t believe someone would hurt them, after a while he thought it best to take their mind off it “Hey… I ever tell you about the time I got stuck in a Diamond City sewer? Great story…” He felt easier knowing Sole’s mind was in a better place for the time being
Dogmeat: Snuggles up to Sole and nuzzles them with his snout in an effort to make them feel better, stays by Sole’s side as long as they need, he’s always there for them
Hancock: Takes Sole in his arms and hugs them tightly “Love… it’ll be okay, it ain’t your fault trust me, believe me if this asshole sets foot in Goodneighbour they’re gonna be sorry” He held them a few minutes longer, stroking their head as it lay against his chest.
MacCready: “God dammit… why would someone do this??” Mac took it hard and blamed himself for not being there to protect Sole. Mac did what he could, he hugged them with a tight squeeze and perched his hat on Sole’s head, his kindness saw Sole crack at little smile as he held them close
Nick: “Now you listen to me… I ain’t gonna stop until this “person” is brought to justice, this jackass thinks they can hurt my vault dweller? Not a damn chance…” Nick’s pledge made Sole feel safer as Nick held them close, his own mind held in thought as Sole lay across his shoulders
Piper: “Bue… I- I….” Piper didn’t say anything and instead hugged the crap out of Sole, the hardest she’d ever hugged them before. Her head buried in their chest so deep her press cap was on the verge of falling off. Sole couldn’t help but feel a gentle smile come as they felt Piper’s tight grip of them, later on it was reversed with Sole buried in PIper’s chest, she gave them little forehead kisses and whispered sweet nothings in her effort to take their mind off it
Preston: “My god… general, I’m… sorry, is there anything I can do?” Preston couldn’t believe someone could hurt Sole like that, naturally he grew more protective of his friend/lover, he’d always ask if they were okay, the thought of them being upset, saddened him and he wanted nothing more than to help Sole be happy again
Strong: “Strong kill whoever hurt human if Strong find them, Strong not let anyone hurt human” It may of not been the most eloquent way of making them feel better, but it meant a hell of a lot knowing Strong cared so much about them.
X6-88: He wanted to take Sole back to the Institute straight away so nothing would ever hurt them again. X6 made a personal pledge to Sole that he would make whoever did this pay, but Sole made X6 promise that no one else be hurt anymore, enough had already had been. Instead X6 put an arm round Sole and held them close, the felt considerably safer in X6′s arms.
Maxson: “Knight… I’m so sorry, but believe me now, your brothers and sisters will not rest by when a fellow brother/sister is hurting, remember, we are all united aboard this vessel, and you have my undivided attention and help whenever you need” He gave Sole his fluffy coat as a present, his way of helping them even further.
I won’t lie as soon as I saw this I stopped everything so I could write out this reaction, I hate to think that someone following and supporting this blog is hurting, anyway anon I hope this helps you in someway, ily <3. Also, if anyone else is hurting and feels like a reaction or something would help, please, feel free to hit me up and I’ll help as best I can <3
