shaun's creation

anonymous asked:

(SPOILER ALERT) Sole comes back from the Institute for the first time after meeting Father/Shaun, distraught and confused. This whole time, they've been seeing the Institute as the enemy but now everything they know has changed. How do the companions comfort them/help them figure out where to let their loyalties lie?

Hi ok this is my first reaction and it took me forever because I was watching Chopped but hopefully I’ll turn out a few more before bed tonight! -Admin Moxie


Danse: Danse understands having your life turned upside down in a matter of seconds. He supports Sole throughout their decision making process offering what advice they ask for. Mostly he just listens to what they have to say and steers them towards coming to a decision they can feel good about.

Deacon: At first it’s rough with Deacon because his loyalty to the Railroad is so unwavering he doesn’t anticipate how conflicted Sole is. At first he jokes it off and doesn’t understand that Sole would essentially be actively decieving their own son. Sole eventually gets the message across and he apologizes, giving them the space they need to make their decision and tries his best to listen objectively and comfort them.

Hancock: Hancock understands the gravity of going against your own family and he listens to Sole as much as they need. He’s a touchy feely guy and when they have serious talks he’ll hold their hand or massage their shoulders for added comfort. His advice is a little politically oriented because he’s been playing the game at the highest level and he’s damn good at it. When Sole comes to their decision he supports them 100%.

MacCready: MacCready can’t believe it when he hears the words come out of Sole’s mouth. He’s very compassionate and gives very good emotional advice. His loyalty lies with Sole so he doesn’t have advice based on any particular political leaning which leaves Sole lots of room to think. He supports them relentlessly and they appreciate it endlessly.

Nick: Nick probably gives the most objective and level headed advice and his brand of comfort involves red wine and cigarettes which helps Sole a lot. He’s seen a lot but he’s never seen anything quite like this. His objectiveness gets under Sole’s skin a little bit, they wish he’d tell them what he would do or what he thinks they should do because they’re completely lost as far as options go. He understands and tries helping them in a more personal way and together they reach a conclusion that Sole is comfortable with.

Preston: Preston listens to Sole explain the situation and doesn’t give them advice so much as ask guiding questions to help them figure out what they want. He takes on a bit of the load helping settlements around the commonwealth so that Sole has more time to themselves to think and decide. He doesn’t think they’ll notice but they notice all the little things he does for them to help take a load off their plate and it’s very touching.

Strong: Strong doesn’t exactly get what the big deal is but he thinks that this human has helped him out and he lets them talk. He doesn’t know what to say back and doesn’t really know how to comfort but for Sole being able to just talk and get their feelings out is enough.

X6-88: X6 doesn’t understand why Sole is upset at their son outgrowing them at first because he just thinks that they should be incredibly proud of all their son has accomplished. They explain it and he comes to understands and starts to tell the stories of Shaun from his creation up to now. He has no idea how much it truly means to him but he can see the appreciation and tears in their eyes and he knows he’s helped them cope. 


Cait: Cait’s first feeling is always anger but she manages to dial it back for Sole’s sake when she sees how distraught they are. She listens to everything they have to say and tries to give good advice. She doesn’t exactly have family ties, but Sole is the closest thing she has to family and she wants to help them in any way she can. She’s good at comforting them while they talk even if she feels like every time she opens her mouth she messes everything up more. 

Curie: Curie hugs Sole and takes very good care of them while they’re trying to decide what to do. She doesn’t want to step on their toes by giving them advice on Shaun and even though Sole wishes she’d give them a little guidance they appreciate all of her taking care of them.

Glory: Glory has a hard time leaving her loyalty to the Railroad out of her advice to Sole because she’s so committed to the cause. It gets to the point where Sole gets very frustrated with her and doesn’t talk to her as much for a day or two. Once Glory realizes how her attitude has made Sole feel she apologizes and stops talking and starts listening.

Haylen: Haylen listens and tries to give Sole advice but she just doesn’t know what to do or what Sole should do. After talking it out with them they come to a conclusion together. She turns out to be really good a t problem solving and saying just the right thing to make Sole feel heard and understood. 

Piper: Piper is all about the hus and physical affection. She rubs their back and holds their hand while they tell her everything. For someone who is so good with words she has none for Sole’s situation. She lets more experienced and eloquent people handle the advice and just focuses on being there for Sole and listening when they need it and distracting them when they’re thinking too hard.

Can you do SS taking Shaun w them, but tratung him horribly due to him not being SS real son. Like when Shaun tries being nice SS is just a dick and glares at him.

*Spoilers regarding Danse*

Cait: smacks Sole round the back of the head for being such a bastard, drags them aside “The fuck is wrong wit’ ye’… he’s only a kid you piece a shit… you want him to end up like how I did? I can’t fuckin’ look at ye’ right now” Cait had never been this fucked off with Sole before, seeing Sole act in such a callous and abusive way reminded her of her own parents, and she’d damned if she’d let another innocent kid be corrupted by an abusive parent

Codsworth: “SIR/MUM!! I’m appalled you would treat young Shaun in such a way, he may be a synth, but he’s still your son…” Codsworth was disgusted Sole could be so monstrous to not only a child, but Shaun, who, even as a synth, thought of Sole as their parent and hero

Curie: “How dare you!… Shaun is but a child!” Curie took a crying Shaun in her arms as Sole looked on without care “I can’t believe you would do somesing… Somesing so… UGHH!!!” Curie could not process her own thoughts due to the immense anger she felt towards Sole, she kept a still tongue to try and prevent further upset to an already distraught Shaun

Danse: (Before Danse knows he’s a synth ) “Fucking synth, I don’t even see why you brought it with us soldier, you should’ve left it to burn back in the Institute” Danse’s hate was very much alive at this point
(Danse knows he’s a synth) “What the hells wrong with you? Shaun may be a synth, but let me remind you soldier… so am I, and I don’t think you’d fucking dare treat me like you’re treating him” Danse and Sole are directly glaring at each other, but inches from each other’s faces, an immense anger and hatred resonated between the two, a pin dropping would’ve set them off at each other

Deacon: “so after everything with the railroad this is how you treat synths now? Oh no and not just a regular synth, your fucking son?? You know what I’m fucking done with you man, and I’m taking Shaun, at least with the railroad he won’t be treated like fucking scum by those around him!” Deacon reached out a hand to a crying Shaun, picked him up as cradled him in his arms as he left Sole for good.

Dogmeat: Sees what Sole is doing to Shaun and immediately starts growling with a flared, demon like anger at Sole, he may only be a dog, but he understood what the situation was and would not have any of it

Hancock: “What happened to you man? He’s just a kid for christs sake… you either chill the fuck out and sort your shit out or I’m walking, and I’ll be taking Shaun as far away from you as possible…” Hancock never got angry like this but he refused to let an innocent kid be abused by anyone, let alone Sole, he was so pissed no amount of chems could calm him down at this point

MacCready: “ You know what? I can’t fucking believe you… after everything we’ve gone through to get Shaun and this is how you’re treating him?” Mac’s anger stemmed from his love of Duncan, anyone who dared abuse him Mac would go ape on, so to see Sole be an abusive asshole to Shaun it struck a nerve for definite, a parent abiding a child on his watch? Not a chance

Nick: seeing Sole abuse not just a child but Shaun, the person that had brought them together rooted a deep anger in the usually cool and calm Nick “If you think I’m gonna let you abuse this kid you got another thing coming… Now if you ain’t the right person to care for him, let me make it clear I’ll find someone who will you total scumbag” Nicks rage at Sole had his usually golden eyes bore a underlying ominous red glow, he was seriously pissed off with Sole.

Piper: “What fuck Blue?!?” She had to whisper as she dragged Sole aside, away from Shaun, “You think this is funny?? He’s just a kid you asshole, even if he is a synth… he doesn’t fucking know that, I honestly thought you were better than this” Tearing up slightly at her friend and lover Piper struggled to finish at Sole “I… I guess I was wrong… about you Blue… you’re not better than anyone else in this goddam wasteland.” Witnessing Sole abuse Shaun the way they did had completely demoralised Piper, what could she do when people couldn’t even show love and decency to their own kids?

Preston: Almost punched Sole for his actions, Preston was so mad at Sole he couldn’t even speak, no parent should abuse their child and Preston held that value close to his heart, so to see his general and his friend/lover abuse Shaun for not being what they wanted, pushed Preston over the edge, he simply took Shaun’s hand as Sole stood with a death glare aimed at Preston, then walked away, he wasn’t letting an innocent kid be abused for just existing

Strong: could only give advice to Shaun “little human learn that world cruel, hostile world, must be tough” that was all strong could say after having to literally thrown Sole away from Shaun as it looked like Sole was going to seriously harm him. “Little human learn from Strong, Strong knows how survive out here”

X6-88: crushed Sole’s hand when they raised it to Shaun, with Sole’s crushed hand firmly held in his own fist X6 gritted through his teeth “May I remind you who you raise a hand to, scum. Do not make me hurt you even more you piece of shit” Shaun being a direct creation inspired by father, X6 would destroy anything or anyone that posed a threat, including Sole


Maxson: After being sent away as a boy to be raised at the Citadel, Maxson had yearned for his parents all the way through his training but alas with his father’s death being the reason for his re location and his mother never being heard from, Maxson never had any real parents. So when he saw Sole abusing Shaun, it enraged him. However as Sole told Maxson the boy was a synth he was no longer so sympathetic to “it,” disgusted at Sole for brining a synth aboard the Prydwen Maxson shot the kid himself, then had Sole flown back to the ground. For bringing a synth aboard the Prydwen, Maxson would no longer entertain Sole’s presence in the Brotherhood. (Maxsons has been edited since the original Maxson edit)

Bit of a deep one to be honest, as always I hope you enjoy it guys!
