    Summary

    When Sam Vimes was told the Commonwealth would “cease to be”, he insisted that the wizards save every person there, not just himself. As it turned out, the number of people who were actual people was far fewer than expected, but a handful still found themselves struggling with some uncomfortable facts: they were all fictional characters made real by another person’s realness, their entire lives a scripted backstory created by a few wizards, while the real world had magic and was flat.

    Raiders to barbarian “heroes”, ghouls to undead, atomic mutations to thaumic ones, there are a lot of surprising similarities between their new home and their old one. But it starts to seem like bits and pieces of the Commonwealth have followed them into the Ankh-Morpork...

    Meanwhile, Sam Vimes has to deal with learning that the wife he loves and the son he thought dead are both very much alive. As wonderful as that revelation is, he’s left with the question of what to do about his new boyfriend and the synth son they’d been raising together, even while he’s gripped with the dread certainty that no matter what happens, he’s going to get it wrong.

    Summary

    The Brotherhood, for all its glory, is cold.

    Cold bunks, cold steel, cold eyes and voices, cold determination. The only warmth is from the smoking barrel of a laser rifle or an overheating suit of Power Armor.

    There is a ceaseless chill in every Brotherhood-occupied area he’s ever been in. He prefers the cold, so the unaccountably-low temperature never fazed him. Actually, before, he’d always choose the bite that made you aware, kept you focused, over the hazy fog of heat.

    But that was before.

    Now?

    Now, as he slowly blinks, blinded by morning sun peering past the shutters, limbs entangled with the other man’s?

    Everything about it is so, so warm.

    ~OR~

    The morning after the first night they sleep in the same bed, Danse has some ruminations, Jess has no sense of 'personal space', and Shaun has a caffeine addiction.

    Summary

    When the strange goggles attached to the Wizard-created "icono-game" were slammed down in front of Commander Sam Vimes' eyes, he didn't know what to expect. When the frost cleared, the first thing he saw was Sybil murdered and young Sam kidnapped, and because there's no world where Sam Vimes could allow that to stand, he gave chase into a world like no world he'd ever seen, where he knew no one and no one recognized him. He'd have to find new allies to help him deal with dangers that, while new, still felt sickeningly familiar. Because some things never change.

    Note: A few individual chapters are explicit, and are clearly marked. The fic as a whole is Mature.

    Summary

    "My husband's missing," the man repeats, knowing he's hit a soft spot.

    Yvonne looks up, and knows with every two hundred year old ache in her body that she'll regret this. "Where did you last see him?"

    .

    Not a month after the Institute was destroyed, Yvonne finds herself pulled back exactly where she doesn't want to be; tangled yet again with the Railroad and chasing a missing person through the Commonwealth.

    She learns the hard way not everyone is adjusting to life without the Institute, and this war is far from over.

    Summary

    As evil as Deacon knows the Institute can be, it's unlikely they planted a cryogenically frozen version of his dead wife in a pre-war Vault. So he's accidentally stumbled across the woman they modeled Barbara to look like. Plus her dead, also frozen, husband. All he wants to do is file it away with his other lifelong trauma and forget that she exists, but when Nora bursts into the Commonwealth a few years later that isn't an option anymore.

    A shameless short-fic idea that wouldn't go away. Based on the Hozier song 'Almost' and the desire to create an even more emotionally tortured Deacon by having Barbara originally as a rejected mother-figure synth for a younger Shaun, modeled to look like the Sole Survivor.

    Summary

    Bryleen Eleonora “Nora” McClaren woke up eight months ago to find her husband Nate murdered and her infant son Shaun missing. In those months since she discovered that she was the sole survivor of her vault, she has become the General of the ragtag Commonwealth Minutemen, an Agent of the mysterious Railroad, and a Knight in the recently arrived Brotherhood of Steel. As Nora the lawyer from Sanctuary Hills fades away and Bryleen the wasteland warrior takes hold, she is left disheartened and confused about what she really wants.
    After Goodneighbor’s favorite mayor comments on her choice of companion, Bryleen finally steps back and takes a look at her lonely lifestyle. Maybe it’s time to find a person to travel the Commonwealth with, someone to trust. But who can she risk her safety on, and possibly even her heart?

    Summary

    After taking down the Institute with the Minutemen at her back, Amarli Lorenzen has ditched the danger, the drugs, the drinks, and the ladies for a chance to return to her suburban life in Sanctuary Hills. Well… mostly suburban. Her synth son, Shaun, and the tech studio she keeps in her bedroom are all she thinks she needs for the rest of her days in the Commonwealth.

    It isn’t long until danger begins to whisper to her about all the excitement she’s left behind. Feeling displaced once more, Amarli leaves the safety of Sanctuary Hills behind and returns to the brutal reality beyond. Her magnificent discoveries range from an incredibly human-like pre-war robot to a mechanical mastermind who seems hell bent on taking over the Commonwealth.

    Amarli won’t be returning to her suburban life anytime soon – that’s for sure.

    Summary

    Annie Simeone-Johannes does not like Deacon.
    He's too cocksure of himself, too foolhardy and aloof, and he lies through his teeth 98.7% of the time, and the remaining 1.3% he's trying to impart some great 'lesson of wisdom' on her (the first time he bullshitted her, she believed it - now she’s smart enough to recognize his tells, recognize that at every lie’s center there’s a grain of truth that holds it all together).
    He's too loud, a liar and a sleaze… in short, he's everything Ritchie was when they first met; her a budding actress and him a well known actor-producer combination. A recipe for disaster, more like (at least with Deacon, she knows he’s not fucking her costars in their bed.) She has to remind herself, too often for her to feel truly comfortable, that they are two different people, too different to be the same, and yet -
    Yet still the similarities are chilling.

    Summary

    "How might I address you?" Shaun's speech was still far too stilted, even in comparison to Father's own speech at that age.
