Sole says “I love you” to Dogmeat and the (not romanced but interested) companion thinks Sole is talking to them.
(This is a good one Anon, thank you!)
Cait: She freezes in place, taking in what she just heard. Wow, Sole, actually just said that. Cait turns and runs up to them, giving them a kiss before walking away. This leaves Sole very flushed and very confused.
Codsworth: “Oh I love you too Sir/Mum!” he says, as Sole begins to chuckle at him.
Curie: “Ma’am/Monsieur!” she whispers, a little too loud. Sole looks up and mumbles a ‘huh?’. Curie gets too excited and fans herself in the heat. “You just said that you love me, did you not?”
Sole snorts and then begins to laugh. “Curie, uhm, I was talking to Dogmeat.”
Curie stops and her face pales.
Paladin Danse: Danse watched as Sole rubbed Dogmeat’s belly and made a fuss of him, playing with his ears as he barked and wagged his tail in happiness. It was just the way their voice wavered slightly and he could sworn he heard his name. “U-Uh.. Soldier… I..” He stammered out, already feeling awkward. “Hmm?” Sole hums, not looking round at Danse.
“I think I.. Like you too…”
Sole freezes and Dogmeat looks at Danse, panting. Sole looks around and simply says, “You.. Are.. Such a nerd… I cannot believe you thought I was talking to you…”
Danse mentally smacks himself and dies a little inside as Sole can’t stop laughing on the floor.
Deacon: “Wait. What was that.” Deacon asks, pushing his sunglasses further up his nose. “What was what?” Sole asks. “What you just said.”
“I was telling Dogmeat that I love him, that was all.”
Deacon mutters something inaudible and quickly says that he couldn’t hear the first time due to the sound of Deathclaws in the distance. Sole ignores the comment, knowing it’s very clearly a lie…
Hancock: “That’s real cute trouble” he says, wrapping his arms around Sole from behind. “Thanks, hun.”
“Thanks for what?”
“The whole, I love you thing.”
MacCready: Freezes. Completely. He doesn’t want to utter a word. Did they just really say that? To him? They did didn’t they. Oh god.
“Ahha cooool…” he finally says, walking away slowly. Sole’s confused as to where he went and when they question him about it later, he doesn’t even say anything. Remaining quiet.
Preston Garvey: “General. Did you.. Just?” he asks, kneeling beside Sole.
“Say that you, love me?”
Sole goes quiet whilst in thought, but then bursts out in laughter, causing Preston to awkwardly laugh along to fit in. Dammit.
Piper: “Wow, Blue, that was sudden… Where’s the huge speech about my eyes? I was looking forward to that”
Nick Valentine: He laughs at first. But then shuts up as he realizes he’s being impolite. “Yeah, sorry kid, uh…”
Strong: “WHAT DOES HUMAN MEAN BY LUFF”
X6-88: “I do not know how to respond to this Sole. I think I may feel the same. But I do not understand these complex human emotions.” he says, stood still. Sole looks up, surprised at his comment before laughing, confusing X6 even more.
