“I just want you to know, there are worlds out there, safe in the sky because of her. That there are people living in the light, and singing songs of Donna Noble. A thousand, million light years away. They will never forget her, while she can never remember. … But for one moment… one shining moment… she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.”
I saw other people doing this for spirit companions so here’s a moodboard/aesthetic for me and Candy’s friendship! Thanks so much for bringing us together 😁😊
P.S. Candy really likes rich, sugary food, which is why there are TWO whole pics of it in this
Female companions react to sole joking about their death when really they're really considering it because they hate themselves but playing it off like nothing is wrong
Thank you for this ask, anon. I’m hoping this one might give people who are dealing with this some hope and comfort, maybe even to talk about it to someone they love and trust. These characters would believe in you, and one way or another so do I ❤️
Intro: Sole was not doing nearly as well as they pretended to. Being in the ravages of the commonwealth, losing what they lost… they felt useless, hadn’t been able to stop it all. Sole couldn’t shake the thought that nothing would change that feeling. They hated themself for not being good enough, never feeling happy enough so faking that it was to the outside world was the next best thing. Joking to hide it, just one day at a time, as long as nobody found out about it. That was until the day, in spite of the smile still set on their face, something must’ve shone through in one of their jokes. They were looking into the very concerned eyes of their Companion. “ Hey… are you alright?” It took Sole a fraction of a second to regain their composure, to get back to the façade and the fake smile. “Yeah, of course! I was just joking, let’s go.” Their companion held them by the arm, not tightly, but just to get them to turn around and stand still. “ Sole… What is really going on?” The worry in their voice made Sole cave in entirely. They had hoped never to have to explain this… not like they would understand it anyway. But they couldn’t evade it anymore. Tears welled up in Sole’s eyes as they admitted that maybe they hadn’t just been jokes.
Curie: Curie looked more worried than she ever had before, and that was saying something considering she was usually the one to patch up Sole’s wounds. This wasn’t something any kind of medical knowledge could prepare her for, nothing she could just fix. So she went with the new instincts that came with having a body and pulled sole into a tight hug, allowing them to just cry it out and making sure they had the physical affirmation that someone was there to cling to. When Sole calmed down a bit they were the first to speak “Curie, thanks but, I’m fine, I’m sorry to have sprung that on you I didn’t mean to…” Curie shook her head “Non! No apologies!” Sole sighed, looking defeated. “ You mean more zho me zhan anyzhing in zhe world. I want zho know if somezhing is wrong! “ She placed her hand on Sole’s cheek. “ You are loved and important. Whatever I can do zho help… please let me.”
Des: Sole tried to regain their composure as Des stood there in shock. She hadn’t seen it coming, she wondered how she didn’t notice. How she didn’t realise that the person with the weight of the world on their shoulders couldn’t be going through this. “Sole, if I can help…” Sole shook their head and wiped away their tears with the back of their hand. “ This is my fight Des, not yours. I can’t just be saved. This isn’t like managing an escape route for someone who was trapped by some sort of evil dictator, I’m battling myself.” “ I know that, but a little help from your friends can’t hurt. After all these years of speaking to people who are trying to get their life back or started I’ve learned that talking helps. You don’t have to talk to me but… talk to someone. Regardless, my door is definitely always open. “ “ I don’t want to be a nuisance, I know very well this world doesn’t revolve around me. “ Sole looked down, not wanting to face her anymore. “Hey look at me.” Des made sure she made eye contact with Sole. “ And I don’t want to lose you.”
Haylen: Haylen looked up at Sole, sighed and held on to them. “I’m not going to say I get it. That I know how it feels. But… I’m here. And I get part of it.” Sole breathed in and out and tried to calm down a little. Haylen just sat there with them until they did, holding on to their hand. “What do you mean, you get part of it? “ “ I figured Danse told you about this…” Haylen looked down. “ I was forced to give a Knight, who I stayed with for 2 days and nights, an overdose of painkillers. He couldn’t be saved, his wounds were too severe. I knew that. But I refused to just… “ Haylen’s face looked pained. “Anyway, I collapsed and Danse held on to me. I did something that according to my medical training was wrong, I kept… thinking of what I could have done anyway. Perhaps, something would have worked. I’m pretty sure I slipped into a depression. Kept it down though. Rhys… helped me through it. Danse did too, but without knowing. And some meds. Regardless, I know what it feels like to feel stuck in the dark. I know part of this might be due to what happened back in that vault of yours.” “ He did tell me, I just… we weren’t that close yet so I didn’t put two and two together.” Haylen scoffed. “It’s fine, he probably didn’t either. All I’m saying is… All you and I want to do is go back and save the people that we love… add up this kind of world to that instinct and things get bad fast sometimes. But you shouldn’t go through this alone. I got you. If you need to talk, I won’t judge you for it, not for a second. “
Glory: Glory’s eyes widened. “ You… what?” She couldn’t bring herself to do anything, the shock kept her set in place. Sole looked up at her, watery eyes. “I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have mentioned it. Can we… ignore I just said that?” “ No! I wanna hug you and slap you at the same time. How long have you felt like this?” Sole smiled but remained extremely unconvincing. “ A while.” Glory inhaled deeply and as she exhaled she put her hands on Sole’s shoulders. “Listen, you’re gonna be okay. You hear me? I don’t know how we’re gonna do it yet but we’re gonna do this. I got you.” Her words weren’t helping, but to have her on their side did help a little, not being alone with this helped a little.
Magnolia: Magnolia’s usual in charge and independent look changed to one of compassion at the look of Sole crying. She had no idea what to do, what to say. She avoided getting too personally involved with people, but Sole was different somehow. She always considered Sole to be the ultimate survivor and knowing they felt broken on the inside broke her heart a little as well. She just held Sole and said “It’s okay. Look forward to small things, I would recommend my fantastic performances but they can hardly be called small things. And carry on. Stay here for a while. There’s room in my bed and in my arms for you for as long as you need, my hoards of admirers will just have to wait.”
Piper: Piper’s lips parted a little, and the look in her eyes softened. “ Well… I can’t say this is a big surprise.” “ I’m sorry, you didn’t ask for this. Just… ignore I said anything.” She pushed a strand of hair from Sole’s face and let her hand rest on their cheek, wiping one of their tears away. “I noticed something was wrong before but I kinda wanted to wait for you to tell me. I didn’t want to risk putting those kind of thoughts in your head.” She sighed and tilted her head a little. “ I’m so sorry I waited to ask. I should’ve asked sooner. “ Piper felt helpless, not having a clue what she could possibly do to help. “ No, it’s my fault. A lot of things are.” “ Damnit Blue… you’re the best damn thing in this world. I know how selfish this is going to sound but I need you. You may be down in the dirt now but you still have this glow to you. The promise that there are a couple of good people left out there. You don’t know what it means to me to have you by my side. So… You can cry, or scream, Whatever feels right and I will stay by your side. No matter how bad it gets I’m gonna be right there with you. So when it gets too much,.. you know I’m a good listener. Even off the record.” Sole remained silent, but looked right into her eyes. She grabbed Sole’s hands. “ You are not a bad person, okay? And you are loved.”
Well this is a smol lil letter for C, my first ever Spirit companion omfg ;”)
I still cant wrap my head around someone as cool af as you choosing someone as totally nooby and retarded as me to be your companion xD Regardless, i was so excited when i heard you had picked me! Im really sooooo grateful to have you around! I know it frustrates you that i cant really communicate with you that well, it frustrates me just as much theres literally SO MUCH i wanna talk to you about and you know how much i like to talk right? xD
Everyday has become slightly better for me, knowing that when im stressed, frustrated or just real tired, that i can always confide in you, if not verbally than mentally at least. I used to sometimes wake up at unholy hours of the night, real scared that something was there, but now when that happens and i ask of you to help me, your presence always helps calm me down ^.^ I know i am probably really annoying at times but i ask of you to bear with that side of me, and hope that it growns on you xD
Leaving offerings for you is always fun! But yeah i also realised you arent fond of muffins but like chocolates xD We like the same kind of crystal too thats legit so awesome <3 I always used to be so demoralized when my attempts at astral or third eye meditation always failed, sometimes even considering giving up. But with you around now, ive a goal to strive towards! Sucessfully being to astral travel, if only to meet you, the one whose been around me, listened to me, protected me, for so long! And i just get this weird feeling, that when i am one day able to sucessfully astral project, your smiling, proud face will be the first thing i’ll see :3 Till then, ill try my very best and i hope youll help me in my efforts whenever you can <3
To end off, I know it might frustrate you that i wish to get more spirit companions. Theres one type of spirit ive always been crazy in love with and i cant wait to get them! I genuinely hope they will make great companions for you! No matter how big my spirit companion family gets one day, I want you to remember C, that you were my very first, and shall always always have a very special place in my heart ^^
Wishing you all the fishy birdies,
(PS; This letter was inspired by @thatdragonplace ‘s event/challenge! This is fun sankyu!!)
Companions (with a secret crush) react to Sole asking them for advice on how to tell the person they like that they like them?
So this is long over due, sorry guys, I’ve been in the mood to write, but at the same time I want to write about specific thing, but I promise to try to not forget about this blog. I swear. - Alex
Curie - An absolute sweetie about it, she would just tell Sole to be themselves. “That’s what I like most about you, monsieur/madame. You have a great big heart and whoever has you is a very lucky person.”
Cait - Doesn’t really know what to say since she doesn’t really think that she is the ideal person for sole compared to Nate/Nora. “I don’t know, not to experience with this whole love thing. How ‘bout you do things that they enjoy or something?
Piper - Blushes at bit as she thinks about her crush on Sole, trying not to be too obvious. “Well, what about you do what you do best, blue? Be all old fashion and give them a sweet date. That might really show them that you like them.”
Magnolia - Would be the total mom friend, would encourage you to tell them upfront but to be careful not to get their heart broken. “You be careful with that heart, doll. You only have one and it would be painful to see it get broken.”
Haylen - Would try to be all professional, but be a little bit fingerling that her Sole has a crush. Though it may pain her, she will want to help plan a date. “You have to treat them right, it’s a harsh world out there but everyone needs a moment to feel like nothing bad is going to happen.”
Glory - Would be the least to show any distress about Sole having a crush and not know who it is, but would still be curious. Her advice to Sole would be to grab the bull by the horns. “Life is short in the Commonwealth, hell everywhere, there’s no point in hiding your feelings.”
MacCready - He and Lucy got together in a strange way, but he would use it to help him help Sole, trying not to reveal that he had a crush on Sole. “My best guess is to show them that you love them, do little things to show your appreciation and your feelings.”
Danse - Would be professional about it, claiming that it would be unwise to have any relationships to serious since they were with the brotherhood, but would still support them. “Not many brotherhood soldiers have relationships outside of our faction, but if they are willing to accept you, despite the fact you are with the brotherhood then they should be sufficient for one of your caliber.”
Hancock - While he is experience in more ways then one, he seems more of the type to take what he wants and if they want it back then he’ll keep it. He’s not one to force things on unwilling people. “If I was you, I would kiss them right on the spot. If they kiss back, you at least know that they’re attracted to you and if they’re willing enough to spend the rest of their life with you, I say their a keeper.
Preston - He’s sweet, we can all agree with that. When it comes to Sole’s feelings he always puts them first, shoving his own feelings aside and helping Sole as best as he possibly can. “General, I think that they would like it if they went out somewhere with you. Somewhere were you aren’t the general, somewhere were it can be just you and them.”
Nick - This old bot is reminded of how the original Nick and Jenny got together and despite it not being his own memory, smiles. “Kid, I have to tell ya, it’s an ugly world out there. Show them something beautiful to forget the ugly, that’s my advise.”
Dogmeat - This precious little pancake will wag his tail and bark at Sole. He will even help Sole get their crush no matter what. How he does so is Sole will tie a little note around his neck, send him to their crush for them to read and guide them too Sole. What a sweetheart!
Deacon - Ah, asking the compulsive liar, Deacon will constantly change his mind on what Sole should do to impress their crush. One day he’ll be like, “Kill a Deathclaw in their name!” Others he’ll say, “Send them on a goose chase all over Sanctuary to find you.” Or “Get a tattoo of their name on your body, that’ll really get them.”
X6-88 - Doesn’t know what to say since this kind of stuff is not the sort of thing that the institute teaches their synths, especially coursers. He’ll just be his old blunt self, but what’s not to love about that? “I’m not sure what you are asking me, sir/ma’am. Just tell them that you like them, if they don’t reciprocate then they aren’t worth your time.”
Codsworth - This old fashion robot is a lot more helpful than one would think. He’ll try to bring out Sole’s experience with their own spouse and ask them how they got together. “Sir/Mum, how did you get with your better half? I think it would be a splendid idea if you did something like that to show the person you like that you truly care about them.”
Strong - Doesn’t know what the hell Sole is talking about. “WHAT ARE YOU ASKING ME HUMAN? WHAT IS THIS CRUSH THING? YOU HAVE CRUSH ON BROTHERS? YOU SHOW THEM CRUSH OFTEN?”
Maxson - May act like some sort of God and that nobody can touch him but when Sole confesses that they have a crush he is actually very honest in his advise. “Knight, I am only saying this from experience, it would be unwise if you had a relationship with anyone. We’re soldiers we risk our lives everyday, we can’t guarantee that we will come back.”
Gage - Being a raider, Gage has always taken what he wanted. When it came to the Overboss asking about such advise he would be harsh, yet honest, with his reply. “Boss, just take them. Kiss them like you mean it, show them how you want them. If they don’t want you back then screw ‘em.”
Okay, so I did my best, I know it’s short but I did a lot of characters. This has been in my draft for a long time, a really long time. The reason I only did Gage is because I don’t have the other DLC characters so I have no idea what they are like. Either way I hope you enjoyed! :)
@thatdragonplace May I present our mood board for my companion Jak! He is an alp spirit who’s a pain in my ass and likes to bake scones. He’s been a great and patient teacher who shares my humor. He decided on most of these images. Enjoy!
