💚🐱🌻 three things i love most in life: nice boys, cats, and flowers
i can’t understate my excitement over the idea of getting more Free! this year! Tachibana Makoto is one of those earnest, thoughtful, good-boy types that just melt my heart like butter! *SWOON*
despite not doing anything new with composition, like i had been hoping to do this week, i did spend a long time on this and tried some new things with adjusted line weights and more subtle color gradients. hope you all enjoy it!
(maybe i’ll do the other boys too some time! (O wO) <3)
While I enjoyed my time in Fallout 4, there was one thing I always felt like I was missing. Deacon is a fantastic character who stands fine on his own with no romance, but if you’re looking to add to that experience with a romance then this is the mod for you! Like the other romanceable companions, he is available for female and male sole survivors.
The dialogue options and lover’s embrace unlock after you gain Deacon’s loyalty perk. It’s fully voiced, I cut together other parts of his dialogue and I think it sounds pretty good. He doesn’t say much, but what he does say is pretty 😍 I’ve filled in the rest with notes he’ll leave around for your survivor (think of Deacon as an early riser who’s up before the Sole Survivor is).
Note: There is no PS4 support for this mod and unfortunately there never will be. Sony put up some really lame restrictions as to what can be added to their mods - no external files can be included and welp, to do all of this, I had to add some external files. Sorry PS4 players.
Dont even ask lmao. The breed is a King Charles Cavelier for anyone who’s interested thy are like, the least scary dog in the world.
The alleyway is cold and unforgiving.
The rest of the crews panicked yelling had died with his ear piece and so he finds himself half dead and alone, bleeding out behind an overflowing dumpster. Not quite the dramatic death he’d imagined. It’s pathetic actually. He coughs into his hand and wipes the blood on his shirt.
Ryan hears footsteps and swears under his breath. He’s in no condition to defend himself, if he’s spotted he’s fucked.
They come to a stop a few feet away from where he was hiding and he holds his breath.
“You’re sure he came down here?”
“I know I saw something!”
There is a rustle and he presses himself closer to the wall. The assailants swear.
“A fuking dog? Are you serious you saw a dog?”
There’s a muffled yelp and Ryan waits until the footsteps fade before crawling out.
It is a dog. A tiny dog. It’s almost as pitiful as he is and he can’t even tell the colour of its fur behind the dirt and grime. It spots him and climbs to its feet shakily, snarling. Considering its barely reaches above his ankles, Ryan thinks that’s a rather ambitious move.
He sits in front of it and crosses his legs. Slowly its hackles lower and its growl turns into a small whimper. He reaches out a hand, ignores the bared teeth and picks it up.
“You saved my life huh?”
It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
He passes out.
Ryan wakes up with the little dog bathed and clean, snuggled up to his side. They make an odd pair. Her scruffy coat and tiny body next to his blood stained form. He thinks he likes it.
As soon as he’s walking - and doesn’t have Jack breathing down his neck - he goes out and buys her a bandana with a skull on it. Jack thinks it’s adorable, Gavin thinks it’s stupid. Geoff kind of looks like the word is ending. Ryan is too distracted feeding his little dog treats to care.
When she finally understands sit the glee on his face is probably terrifying.
He doesn’t take her on heists. Of course he doesn’t, she’s small and breakable and well, hardly intimidating. Turns out he doesn’t have to because she finds a way of making it there on her own.
Michaels maniacal laughter is cut off into a startled yell when he spots the little dog in the rearview mirror, grooming her paws as if she’s meant to be there and she isn’t surrounded by screaming and explosions. Michael swerves and screams when Ryan appears at the window, opening the door, tossing Michael out and throwing him his explosives before climbing in the driving seat, driving her home.
The others return an hour later to him scolding her.
The next time the go on a heist, Ryan make a point of taking off his mask, giving her a look and locking her in his bedroom.
This time she’s in Geoff’s car.
In the end they realise she can’t be stopped, Ryan also realises that she’s a crafty little shit who somehow manages to remain unharmed. Their enemies very quickly learn that any attack on the dog is the worst sin they can commit.
He watches her latch on to the leg of one of their enemies amidst gunfire and blood shed and decides to call her Hurricane.
When she turns, gives him a smug look and sits on her haunches he decides its appropriate.
