Simmons is an escaped synth from the Institute with one goal in
mind: answers. So when he stumbles upon a ghoul who’s willing to be his
escort across the wastes for a discount price, he finds no reason to
say no. Even if the ghoul is the laziest asshole he’s ever met.
Or: A ghoul and a synth meet, go on a road trip, and maybe find some lost parts of themselves along the way.

The bang is over! Holy crap! It’s been a wild ride from start
to finish, from both the perspective as a mod and the perspective as a
writer. I signed up for this event as a pitch-hitter (aka, someone who
fills in in case of a drop) so when I got started on this piece, it was
under extra crunch time. But I did it!
I wouldn’t have finished
this if it wasn’t for a lovely amount of folks, of course. As usual, I
have to give a shout out to Steph, Salt, Becky, Rena, and Taller for
seeing my drafts and assuring me this wasn’t a garbage fire. Taller also
helped me edit this entire sucker into working order, and without their
beta, this thing would be a mess. So hats off Taller. You’re the real
I also would be remiss not to mention my artist, @hexasart! The art
they did for this piece was honestly mind blowing and you can find it
on their own blog later at http://hexasart.tumblr.com/. The work they did blew me away
and when I saw it I screamed for like five whole minutes. I cannot thank
them enough for the incredible time and effort they put into the bang.
Please throw your support in their direction! Their blog is here
(http://hexasart.tumblr.com) and all the amazing art they did is
hyperlinked in here (They also do commissions!). The art is also posted on their own blog here! I did the header so please do not mistake my terrible illustrator work for their genius.
Last but not least, I have to lay praise on
my fellow mods who helped keep this plan together. All of you guys
tackled so much work, which included so many spreadsheets, emails, and
an incomprehensible amount of drafting. Without every last one of you,
this event wouldn’t have happened. And extra special shout out to Steph
who came into the group chat and said “how about we do a big bang” and
ignored my panicked screaming .

Post Season 13. Even with Hargrove on the run and a war ostensibly over, Vanessa Kimball has a lot of work left to do on Chorus. Luckily, the final battle brought along with it Agent York, who serves as both leader of the planet’s revived intelligence network and an unwitting reminder that Vanessa’s crush on Caro–on AGENT Carolina is absolutely hopeless. That isn’t a problem, though, because she is going to be polite and professional and very much in control of the situation. That, of course, would all be much easier if York hadn’t decided to go and be charming.
