Companions React To SoSu Attempting Suicide
Another request from @pai-likes-pie
First things first, if you really are thinking about this, talk to someone. Someone you call your friend, your family, anyone that cares truly about you. Believe me someone out there really does and if you just want to talk to someone who doesn’t know you in real life then do that. I’m willing to listen. I love all of you guys, my current followers, future followers, past followers, all of you. This blog isn’t possible without you guys.
Now off to the reacts!
Cait - She walked into the room where she had seen SoSu walked in, not really registering what was happening until she saw the bright gleam of the gun in SoSu’s hand. In a moment of pure adrenaline, Cait lunged towards SoSu, knocking the weapon out of their hands.
“The hell do ya think you’re doing!?” She gripped onto SoSu’s shoulders, digging her nails into their skin. “Are you daft or something? What gave you the idea to do that to everyone who cares about you!” They were both crying, looking straight into the other’s eyes. SoSu pulled Cait into a tight hug, mumbling against her chest that they were sorry. Petting SoSu’s head, Cait allowed them to cry. It was the least she could do.
Curie - SoSu cried into her chest as they sobbed, their body collapsing to the ground, rocking back and forth. The chems laid abandoned on the ground. Curie petted her friend’s head, saying sweet things in their ear.
“It’s going to be okay, I’m here now. There’s nothing to be afraid of. I’m not going to let anything hurt you anymore.” Though they seemed like words, to the both of them it was a vow, unspoken and pure.
Piper - “Blue, want to go to the Dugout Inn?” She walks into SoSu’s house only to have her stomach twist in a sick not. “Blue!” Piper runs up to their friend, grabbing the knife away from them and holding the wound they had created from their weapon. “What were you thinking?” Her voice was soft, but slightly harsh as she slightly flinched just how deep the wound was.
SoSu was quiet, watching as she treated the cut they had created. “I’m tired, tired of having to solve everything, of holding everything. People expect so much for me and I can’t even cope with how much everything has changed around me.” They bite their lip, looking down at their lap. “I just want everything to go back to the way they were before.” Piper hugged her friend, whispering comforting words as they cried into her shoulder.
Magnolia - Magnolia hushed her lover that cried into her chest, petting their hair as a sign of comfort. She had just walked on SoSu about to put the noose around their neck. Luckily she had been able to talk them down and listened as they confessed that the world was bearing down on them.
“I’m here, love.” She confessed rubbing their back. “I’m not going anywhere.” As the night went on, Magnolia hummed a soft song and the SoSu fell asleep, feeling a little better now that they had said their troubles and cried for a good while.
Haylen - She had barely caught SoSu, wrapping her arms around their waist and pulling them back onto the Prydwen before they could take a step away from the edge. Haylen’s entire body was shaking as she held SoSu tightly, burying her head in their back.
“I’m not going to let you go. You have so much to live for, so many people who care for you.”
Her hold tightens, only to relax when she feels SoSu’s hands wrapping around her arms, repeatedly saying. “I’m sorry,” and “Thank you.”
MacCready - “Boss, what’s taking so long, we were suppose to head towards that settlement a few minutes ago.” He walked into SoSu’s room and felt his blood turn cold as he saw the noose swaying back and forth from the ceiling. Just then, SoSu comes out, tensing up as they notice MacCready looking at them. “Boss,” His voice sounded betrayed.
SoSu went to open their mouth, but instead found themselves in MacCready’s embrace. His arms held them tightly and before they knew it everything they had bottled in spilled out. MacCready hushed them, rubbing their back, and holding them tightly against his body. “I’m here for you, SoSu. I’m here.”
Danse - Danse approached SoSu who was standing on the railing, looking down towards the ground below the Prydwen. “Soldier, please, come away from the edge. We can talk about this.” He studied their figure, their shoulders slightly slouched forwards, knees shaking. “Please, SoSu, take me hand. You’re not alone in this, so please, step away from the railing and talk to me.”
SoSu looks over their shoulder, gazing upon his outstretch hand with uncertainty. It felt like an enternity, but eventually they stepped down the railing and took Danse’s hands, tears rolling down their cheeks that was quickly wiped away by Danse as he pulled them into a tight hug. “I’m here, soldier, everything is going to be okay.”
Hancock - “Hey, trouble, wanna take a chem-” Hancock immediately cut himself off as he saw SoSu holding a handful of pills. Before they could take the pills though, he jumped them the pills flying in the air. Holding them tightly, they screamed into the air, sobbing as the pills hit the ground.
“Why won’t you let me die?! I want to die!”
He continued holding them, their shouting slowly turning into sobs that wracked their entire body. Hancock couldn’t allow his best friend to die, not when so many people cared about them.
Nick - Nick had just barely caught SoSu with a gun pointed at their head, just before they pulled the tigger, he snatched the gun out of their hands, throwing it to the ground and wrapping them up in his arms. In his embrace, they broke down, they’re body shaking violently.
“I’m so sorry, kid. I should have notice, but you’re not alone.” He slowly starts walking them back and forth. “I’m here, I’ve got ya.”
Codsworth - “Oh, Sir/Mum, your dear spouse wouldn’t want you to do this. You have so much to live for.” SoSu gives a side glance to their robotic butler, the trigger to the bomb in their hands. Their salvation just a push away. “Please, don’t you think your dear Nate/Nora would want you to do this.”
SoSu looked back towards the trigger, their eyes showing all the pain they had been withholding. “No,” Their voice is weak, but they gave it to Codsworth, pulling their knees to their chest as they cried into them.
X6-88 - SoSu knew it was useless to fight against him so they handed him the noose, his eyes burning into them. What they didn’t expect was for him to kneel down to their height and pull them into a hug, rubbing their back gently.
“If you need to talk, I’m always here.” His words brought tears to their eyes as they wrapped their own arms around his body and buried their face in his chest.
Dogmeat - Dogmeat dashed towards SoSu, knocking the knife out of their hand that hovered over their arm. Whimpering a bit, he nudged his head under their arm, kissing their face and he placed his body on top of them.
They wrapped their arms around their neck and cried into his furry neck for the rest of the night, grateful that he had stopped them from making a permanent decision.
Preston - SoSu handed Preston the gun, a sigh of relief leaving the man’s lips. “I understand, General, but just remember it’s not now, but what happens later that makes us.” He wraps and arm around their shoulder, pulling them into a side hug. “We can do this, General. We’ll get through this together.”
As SoSu quietly sobs into his chest, Preston rubbed their back, hugging them tightly. Looking up at the Commonwealth’s stars he vowed that he would get both of them through it somehow, it was too soon for either of them to leave.
Deacon - Deacon’s eye’s widen as he opened the door and saw SoSu holding a pile of piles, their head tilted back, eyes closed, face almost peaceful. Moving as fast as he could, he knocks the pills out of their hands, gripping their shoulders roughly. “Idiot! What are you doing?” SoSu looks at him with wide eyes, never seeing him this angry before. “If you had something on your chest you could have told me.” His grip loosens and arms slid around SoSu’s body, holding them tightly. “You can talk to me, bud. You don’t have to do this alone.”
Maxson - The moment he walked into SoSu’s quarters, he knew something was up when they were nowhere to be seen. That’s when he saw the note on their bed. Once he read it, he bolted out of the room fast. He barely made it in time as he saw SoSu holding a knife, straight at their neck. Grabbing their wrist, he retrieved the knife and threw it behind him.
SoSu fought against him for awhile until they finally gave up, crying into his chest, clinging to him tightly. “It’s going to be okay. I know it doesn’t feel like it, but we’re going to get through this. I’ll make sure of that.” He places a chaste kiss on the top of their head. “I promise.”
I left Strong out on purpose cause I have no idea how he would react.
Edit: Sorry about leaving Preston out! The precious cinnamon bun is now with us. Thanks Anon for pointing that out to me you’re the bomb! Some to the rest of you guys! You guys are the best.
