    Summary

    Charlie is constantly making friends and bedmates of important characters across the Commonwealth, and that's a skill that could be used to the Railroad's advantage. Her skill with a gun, quick thinking, and physical prowess are assets that Deacon cannot ignore.
    But what really gets under his skin is that for all of her flair and friends, no one seems to know where she came from or what her motivations are, and that just cannot stand.

    Summary

    It's the summer of 2071 and the Americans are invading. In northern Alberta, the forests burn and the Canadian Anti-Annexation Bloc plays cat and mouse with US forces occupying Fort McMurry. Working for CAAB is high risk with little reward, and between the fires and the skirmishes, burn bans, and water shortages, agents Saint and Sundog don't waste a single opportunity to blow off a little steam. And then a little more.

    Or: how I made a background OC who ended up seducing my Sole Survivor and stealing my heart.

    Summary

    Celie had wandered into this part of the great green jewel before, when a storm had rolled in and the guards had eyed her suspiciously from trying to take shelter up against the outside walls, so she'd given up and strolled right in. A few traders had given her the side eye, and the reporter's eyes had narrowed when she'd swanned past, headed directly for the noodle bot. She was never used to being the kinda person who people pulled their kids away from, not until she made it out here.

    Summary

    We never wanted to start a war with our actions, seeking neither glory nor self-gane. All we want is to find a freedom from the hatred that spreads through our country like a blackened mold. It continues to grow even now just beneath the surface of all they call perfect and beautiful.

    Katheryn only ever wanted the freedom to love who she wished, but discrimination has never been easy to overcome.

    She is now a woman out of time who must alone face the harsh reality of a future she never had a chance to shape, and search for a family lost long ago.
