Companions react to Sole being really into makeup?

I LOVE THIS PROMPT <3 thank you anon omg <3

Cait: She teases sole over her passion, telling her she looks really girly and it’s a waste of time in the commonwealth. She does begin to learn an appreciation for sole’s love when she teaches Cait a way to cover up the scars she’s secretly self conscious about, although still not sure in the beauty aspect, she’s grateful and respectful of the cover up techniques she’s be taught. 

Curie: She helps sole create natural new palettes of eye shadows and lipsticks from the flowers they have grown, the pair will spend hours in the lab creating the perfect shades to match sole’s outfits. Curie teaches sole her favorite eyeliner and eyebrow routines while sole teaches her contouring and blending. 

Codsworth: Although he didn’t understand the need for makeup or what it really added to sole’s appearance, he’d complement her every-time she tried something new, “Good work Mum! you look positively smashing!”

Dogmeat: Why is sole angry with him, all he did was roll around in the pretty colored powders he found? wasn’t he colorful like her now? 

Danse: He’d told sole a million times, lipstick is not part of the brotherhood uniform especially in blood red. He didn’t mind her passion but not when she was representing the brotherhood, worried he might have insulted her though he gifted his friend with an assortment of orange and black eye products. “If you want to represent the beauty of the Brotherhood, I’d much prefer you use uniform colors”. 

Deacon: He was beyond impressed and supportive of sole’s makeup obsession, the fact this contouring thing could change your whole face without the need of a scalpel was revolutionary to him. He began having sole teach him how to add new features, freckles, scars, slimmer nose ect, eventually using them himself when undercover. He even carries around his own little “tool kit” as he likes to call it. 

Hancock: It made him proud to see the confidence that sole would blossom when spending a good hour or so perfecting her makeup, the smug smile and also vain vibe she gave off always made him light up. “Strut it baby!!”, “oh girl you know how to make the glitter work, show me that supermodel pout”. He’d constantly egg her on and tell her how’s she the real jewel of the commonwealth. 

Nick:  He’d often tell sole she was pretty and didn’t need the makeup, not realizing how offensive it sounded towards her passion, he’s and old sole and didn’t realize how his statement came across. After being yelled at by piper he apologized, telling her he didn’t mean to offend her, he began purposely going out of his way to call sole “A beautiful doll” and could “easily be hung up in a gallery” trying to show support for her talents. 

Maccready: Sole tried and tried again to explain the importance of makeup and grooming to him, he never could quite understand it, he told sole it didn’t really bother him. Trying to get her point across a night before a trip to the third rail sole sculpted Mac’s beard and brows for him. He had no choice to admit the power of grooming and makeup to her after the amount of “chicks” wanting a peace of him. 

Preston: Preston himself loved to be prim and proper so fully understood sole’s passion, the two would secretly swap techniques that they loved, sole careful to keep Preston’s secret, she even on occasion would use his face for practice, knowing he wouldn’t mind and loved to be of assistance, he didn’t dare leave sole’s room with it on though.  

Piper: She believed the freedom to express yourself was empowering, sole’s passion and skill for makeup made her almost proud to be female, she’d tell sole how much of an artist she believed them to be, and awkwardly ask them to give her a makeover on occasion, the confidence it gave her with perfectly winged liner made her feel lucky to have a make up artist in the family. 

Strong: When sole tells him red lipstick is the blood of her enemies, she expected him to be impressed,she did not expect him to be impressed to the point he greeted her one morning, her favorite lipstick smushed all round his mouth. “Strong ready for battle!!!!”

X6:88: “What do you mean you’re beating your face?! Sole are you hurting yourself in there!”. X6 kicked down sole’s bedroom door to find her applying makeup, “you said you where beating your face not painting it”. Sole couldn’t help but burst out laughing as she explained what she meant and how she wasn’t exactly painting her face either, slightly understanding he offered to help, telling the others “he couldn’t wait to help beat sole’s face”, he didn’t understand why they where so horrified. 

Okay but imagine the companions reactions to you proposing/giving them the other wedding ring: 

 Piper: Would be a stuttering blushing mess, “I-I mean, like, you’re sure Blue? With me? Like for real??!?" 

 Preston: He’d be beaming, his face would light up like never before as he agrees. Through in an affectionate "I love you too” in there. 

 MacCready: Nerd would pick you up and spin you around, probably fall to the ground and pepper you face with kisses. 

 Curie: Enthusiastically repeating “Oui Oui Oui!!!” While slightly bouncing with excitement. 

 Danse: Would be silent for a moment. You think he’s about to say no when he softly asks “Are you sure?” After you nod yes he tried to put it on, only to forget he’s wearing power armor so it doesn’t fit. 

 Cait: Tries to be as stoic as possible, but she starts crying. She never thought she’d ever be this happy.

 Hancock: puts the ring on, but doesn’t say anything, he takes your hand and brings to to the balcony of the state house in Goodneighbor. He calls everyone to the square and announces the engagement loudly and excitedly, much to your embarrassment. Dips you for a kiss just to show off even more.

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

Marjane Satrapi To Helm ‘Radioactive’ Marie Curie Story

Oscar-nominated Persepolis director Marjane Satrapi is set to helm Radioactive, based on the 2010 graphic novel by Lauren Redniss, Radioactive: Marie & Pierre Curie: A Tale Of Love And Fallout.

Born in Poland in 1867, Curie (née Skłodowska) moved to France in 1891 and married Pierre in 1895. They worked together to develop the theory of radioactivity, techniques for isolating radioactive isotopes, and discovered two elements, polonium and radium. The pair were at the dawn of a new scientific and technological era which ushered in the nuclear age.

FO4 companions as parents (headcanons)

Codsworth:
Loves his children to bits but unfortunately also lets them walk all over him, they know how to push his buttons and they often get a lot done from him. It’s not that he doesn’t attempt to be strict, he does, but as soon as his kid looks even the slightest bit upset starts to apologize excessively and does anything to make them feel better and tell them it wasn’t their fault. Leaving Sole to inform them when it actually WAS their fault (someone has to keep em from becoming a spoiled brat). When they wanna get something, they tend to ask Codsworth first. Welcoming to any and all of their friends who really like coming over because he’s the dad who essentially makes THE best food all the time. When the kids come to him with nightmares or things that happened he always tries to put things in perspective and makes the child feel understood.

Danse:
Danse is a super protective dad and ridiculously patient as well. He doesn’t like to rush their kid in the slightest. Particularly sensitive to anyone putting too much pressure on his kid, and a very gentle approach to teaching his child anything. He strives to be his child’s confidante and seemingly succeeds at that rather well. If Sole gave birth to the kid also in awe over what she’s managed to do, sees her as some sort of goddess for it.


Deacon:

Dress-up with the kids is a weekly event. When Sole brings up they’re worried on their kid getting an identity crisis early on like that, he just says they ought to experiment with who they wanna be. Dad jokes all around, ready to pretend not to have seen them sneaking out of the window to meet up with a boyfriend or a girlfriend BUT needs to know where they’re going. He does, after all, know it’s a harsh world out there. When concerned about his kids he sometimes follows them around in disguise, although only when he believes there’s something they’re not telling him. Sole often feels like they’re partners in crime and not telling them stuff, even having inside jokes.

Hancock:
His kid is raised to be a rebel, but one with their own sense of right and wrong. Much like their dad, they aren’t afraid to speak up, not even to Hancock who welcomes anything they have to say and tries not to actively stop them from doing anything unless it’s overly dangerous. Doesn’t judge them for the way they dress nor their (lack of) sexual promiscuity. DOES however keep them away from drugs as well as possible, interestingly enough. Always ready to listen and always has his kid’s back, even when that means threatening people who looked at them the wrong way in a dark alleyway. Nobody dares to bully his kids, but none of their friends are scared to come over either. Hancock really trusts his child’s judgement in other people.

MacCready:

MacCready is somewhat more used to parenting thanks to Duncan and is capable of telling his kids off when necessary. If they did something wrong, he sits down in front of them at their height to explain them when they did something wrong and why it was wrong. Regularly picks their kids’ side against Sole, when he thinks Sole’s being a bit too harsh. Nevertheless he provides his children with comics to put under their pillow at night, so they have some important literature near them at all times. Finally remembers why the word ‘mungo’ was banned from his own vocabulary when his child starts to use it. Would readlily fight, kill and die for his kids. 

Maxson:
Very strict parent, doesn’t let their kid win them over with puppy eyes regardless of the age. Nevertheless, he makes sure their kid knows he’s always there for them and doesn’t judge them when they fuck up nearly as easily as Sole expects. He actually listens to his child’s arguments and explains where there are flaws in their reasoning. He does, however, remain very insistent on them learning all about the Brotherhood ways of life. Very protective of his children.

Nick Valentine:
Exceptionally good at keeping a balance between being strict and letting his kids go their own way. Tries his best to keep his kid out of trouble, and raise them with very strong moral values which surpass any kind of laws. Very understanding and never tells their child that how they feel is ridiculous. Sometimes the right thing isn’t just trusting superiors no matter who those superiors are. Makes sure his kid feels appreciated and loved at all times and teaches them that differences aren’t ever a bad thing. His kid also happens to be fluent in sarcasm and tries to make sure they keep their childlike curiosity intact. 

Preston:
The dad who’s calm, responsible but knows everything. His kid has no idea of how he does it but whenever anything happens he just knows, not to mention he can read their face like a book, and instinctively knows when something’s up. Also highly supportive of their kid, and tries to spend as much time with them as possible. Strong believer in that the thing a kid needs most from their parents is their time and love. Adores his kid(s). 

X6:
Not the one who readily starts speaking jibberish to his child, speaks to them as if they were an adult, even as a kid. Annoyed by how defenseless the little one is, but deep down concerned about his kid’s wellbeing. He’s the silent type but does let their kid know when they’ve impressed him and tells them he’s proud of them every once in a while, although usually with a straight face. He’s more careful out there BECAUSE he’s a father and doesn’t want his child to lose him. 

Cait:
NOT a natural at motherhood, probably didn’t really sign up for it. Nevertheless, she attempts to give the child a better life than she’d been given by her own parents. She’s pro the ‘let them make their own mistakes’ approach, knowing that she’s sure as hell made her share of them. Teaches the kid self-defence as soon as she can. If anyone utters even one bad word about her kid she gets on edge VERY fast.Teaches her kid that if someone hits them, they ought to hit harder. 

Curie:
Never seizes to be in awe over her child, her face just lights up as soon as she sees her little one. Carefully keeps track of their growth and reads anything she can find on child development. Makes sure the child eats the right things and tries very hard to get the child’s cognitive functions developed as early on as possible. Tries to raise the child bilingual: French and English.

Piper:
She adores her little one and is the kind of mom who’s also her child’s best friend. She’s pretty chill and always ready to give her kid advice but also strict enough to tell her kid off when they fucked up. Only con: she wants to find out anything and everything that’s going on, sometimes behind her child’s back. Super supportive, always ready to get in the line of fire to protect her kid. A true lioness when it comes to her baby.  

BONUS GIF: Sole and all of her companions at the settlement love this kid and therefore they have the most amazing extended family.
