Have you ever considered…Nick Valentine and his relationship with children?
That he had been in Diamond City for so many years that he’s probably seen the citizens grow from little ones, into adults and then starting families with children of their own?
That he probably always smiles to himself when he hears the news of another member of Diamond City giving birth to a new bundle of joy, and knowing that even though the world is dangerous – that they now have a new little star to light their way in the darkness. (And later going to introduce himself to them and the happy parents, because babies always seem fascinated by his glowing eyes, and he loves their bubbling)
Or that Nick more than likely goes out of his way to learn the names of the children of Diamond City, and does his best to become a mentor to them and answer any and all questions that they have for him – because the children were never afraid of what he was – and are always overjoyed when “Cool Detective Nick” gives them extra attention when he’s not on a case.
“Why do ya smoke, Mista Valentine?” “Cus it helps this ol’ noggin of mine feel relaxed, kid.” “Can I smoke too?” “Aw, I don’t think so, pal. You don’t wanna wind up a dusty old mess like me, do ya?”
Think about Nick bringing one of the kids from the School House in with him to his office after their classes, and Ellie rolling her eyes playfully.
“Another one? Nick, really?” She would say with a sweet giggle, and Nick would ruffle the kid’s head and lean down to their height to place his hat upon their head.
“Nah, but you don’t get it, Ellie,” He would say in response to her. “This here is my lucky partner for the day.”
Now, think about Nick picking the squealing, smiling kid up over his shoulders, and carrying them out to the market place. Telling them that he needs their help, and relying on their wits and detective skills to discover just what happened to Takahashi‘s last batch of Power Noodles.
“Great job, partner! Without’cha the city would’ve been starving tonight! How, how’bout we get a bowl or two to celebrate our detective work, huh?”
Think about Nick turning fiercely protective whenever one of them are bothered by rude people on the Upper Stands, calling them “urchins” or “snot nosed brats”, or someone from the outside that had the gall to try and injure them to prove that it isn’t all fun and games, and “This is what happens to kids out here in the real world.”
Think about Nick placing a hand on the kid’s shoulder and retorting with wisecracks of his own to get the rude person to back down, or worse…standing in front of them, shielding them from the raiders and firing a warning shot, before picking up the kid and tucking them safe under his neck as they travel back home together; telling them that it will be okay.
Just…Nick Valentine and kids, okay.
Because, even though the world is a post apocalyptic hell… Nick is going to do all that he’s able to make sure that the children around him are taken care of, and above all safe, even when they’re parents aren’t able to.
And if all he can do is buy one of the kids a round of noodles, or play detective with them, or watch over them when they’re scared and crying and keep them safe from the close-minded of the city, and the outside world…by goodness, he’s going to do that.
Because he knows what it’s like to be lost in world that is too big and too terrifying for one person to take in on their own. And he knows that to overcome that fear – you need to have hope. You need to have joy, and you need to have a childhood.
And Nick is going to do all he can to make sure that the kids out in the Commonwealth get just that, even if it’s from a weathered old Synth Detective like himself.s
This is pointed towards you Steven universe fandom
WARNING: BIG GIANT RANT COMING THROUGH Okay so this is a very big rant so if you have some thing VERY important then I suggest you watch this later. okay to the topic, so I had quite enough of this SJW bullcrap and I ALSO had QUITE ENOUGH with the SU FANDUMB because of two incidents. One is about a poor girl named Zamii. She was drawing a few drawings of Steven Universe characters. When she drawed three pictures of characters form the show, the sjws were attack her. one was because Rose was skinny in one of her pictures even though it was drawn before rose’s body appearance. 2 when she made a Rose who was more fat than the one she drew skinny but unfortunately they were not pleased enough even though rose looked quite like her canon body (it’s only slight skinny but that’s not wrong) She was then drawing Garnet but according to the SJWS she had a light skin which I call a bullcrap thing to be upset about. There are also other drawings that the SJWS hate so much because of their so called “Discrimination” and you know what they did. They horribly harass her and bully her and guess what. They CONVINCE her to commit suicide… … And guess what else happen. these Sjws also convince another person to commit suicide over a FREAKING SHIP. And guess what, they celebrate it like it’s freaking new years. ….. Dear SJWs, Why do you think that a persons life is less important than cartoon characters that are drawn with lighter skin or a ship that seems “Problematic” WHY!? If you really think that why at all then you are in fact NOT HUMAN LET PEOPLE SHIP WHOEVER AND LET PEOPLE DRAW WHATEVER THEY WANT DANGIT
