Day 1086: It’s both a blessing and a curse that I didn’t see a take me home show. But I think it’s more of a blessing because I honestly would have died if I saw Harry in person during that era. Not to mention the fact that the show I would have gone to had everything I ever would have dreamt happen (i.e.: candy thong and “I’m in love with Lou”)
F3 to F4 characters meeting the lone wanderer again
I got a request for the LW travelling to the commonwealth and bumping into some people they knew from the Capital wastelands
.Deacon: He’d recognize that old 101 jumpsuit anywhere, “Hey what are you doing in my neck of the woods wanderer!”, it was a nice seeing an old Capital wasteland face. He was excited to hear project purity was a success, and how old three dog was still running the radio. The wanderer enjoyed having a friend show them all the local points of interest just like they had done for him a long 10 years ago. The two chatted about how different Deacon looked these days since he’d undergone more surgery and a name change, “I think I’ll come back some day, clean water, less mutants, take a vacation with my old vault buddy”. Deacon did return to DC, this time not alone, by his side the wanderer and a large group of synths waiting to live out their new chapter in life.
Maccready: “Hey mayor where’s you sash?”. The words caught Mac of guard, he’d only ever told sole about his past life, his face immediately broke into a toothy grin when he was faced with an old face in a tattered blue suit. “Hey mungo look at you, gray hairs and everything”. The wanderer couldn’t help laughing seeing their friend all grown up, maturity level the same. “Look at you all grown up, what are you doing in Boston? Little lamplight kick you out?”, “I’m a bit old now, remember no mungos allowed, I’m looking for a cure for my son, he’s still in DC”. The wanderer couldn’t have guessed he’d a child but he imagined him to look just like the maccready they’d remembered. “If you find what you need I can take it to your son, May-oh.. what should I call you these days?”, “Mac or just maccready, come on we’ll go for a beer and I’ll fill you in on the details, remember I’m old enough now”. The two discussed how different they’d both become when entering adulthood, how much lamplight had changed after the wanderer destroyed the mutants lurking there, and how hilarious it still was that a 19 year old bullied a child nicknamed princess.
Maxson: When the wanderer became interested in the BOS they where taken to the elder on the airship, the dark haired man stared at the wanderer, confusion in his eyes. “I’m Elder Maxson, the leader of the brotherhood, we have met before you know”. He grinned at them, his rough exterior slightly fading. “No..No! Maxson? little Squire from the Citadel!”. They couldn’t believe the small child writing stories and crushing on a woman 3 times his age was now the Leader of the Brotherhood. “Yes, I remember you too! you did great things for the capital wasteland, you where quite the inspiration to me”. They couldn’t help giving him a big hug, “Congratulations Arthur, oh I mean Elder, I am so proud of you!”. He was grinning at them, happy to have somebody who remembered the old days, somebody he respected and who was proud of him. The two stayed in his quarters, no talk or ranks or hierarchy, just to old friends trading stories, unmasked, completely themselves. Something Maxson had needed for a long time.
Danse: (I headcannon his name to Chester) The wanderer noticed something familiar about a man on the Prydwen, the scar on his left brow they remembered it, they approached him awkwardly. “Diamond city junk stall, about 10 years ago..was you right? Chester?”. Danse ,looked at them in shock, he pushed them into his quarters and locked the door. “Who are you? how do you know that?!” “Shit calm down it’s me, from the vault, I used to be in rivet city alot”. Danse began to remember, he grabbed them into a big hug, “Wanderer! it’s been years how are you? are you in the brotherhood?”. The two chatted and laughed for hours, remembering the days they’d sit on the deck of the ship, knocking back beers and playing soccer, there wasn’t many teens in the Wasteland and Danse and the wanderer where lucky enough to find fun in each others company. They talked about how much had changed, the wanderer telling them how proud they where of him for escaping their dire life. They shared their sympathies for Cutler and James and agreed how they missed the Clean DC waters and greenery returning from Oasis. They vowed they’d both return one day.
Bonus! Sierra: The LW bumped into Sierra when they visited Nuka world, they spotted her familiar blond hair by a giant statue of cappy. “Hey sierra! I should have know I’d find you here”, “Wanderer, isn’t this place amazing! there’s so much new stuff I can put in my museum at home, will you be taking the tour for the new opening?”. The wanderer knew about her obsession, it was nice to see she hadn’t changed, the two talked about the time sole collected 20 quantum for her, and even shared a couple in the arcade for old times sake. The LW did return to sierra’s museum, it had attracted quite the crowd.
He’s completely drenched, not one millimetre of him not covered in rain, and the old sheepskin cover over the seat is probably going to stink afterwards from the damp. But even with what seems to be a constant tremor shaking his body, brown hair plastered to his forehead, and a blue tinge to his skin, he’s still probably the most gorgeous person that Harry has ever seen.
Or, Harry picks up a hitchhiker in Oxford, and it’s a long ride to Glasgow.
