WELCOME TO POST-APOCALYPTIC-ERA!
The rules have been slightly rehashed since coming under new management. Originally, this was a group strictly for Fallout fandom. However, since the Founders and Co-Founders have deserted it (the original Founder deactivated their account without naming a successor) it seems that the group has become a haven for all things post-apocalyptic. So we've decided to leave it as such, since there are already several other groups that are strictly Fallout.
So the rules are as follows:
>Become a Member and you are welcome to your submit work.
>Please submit your work to the proper folder.
>If your work has nothing to do with the apocalypse it will be removed.
>The Featured folder is no longer an option for submission. We will select qualitative works to represent the group as they strike us. If you have a suggestion, do let us know.
Any questions, please don't hesitate to send us a note!
In Lies, The TruthChapter 2: Changes and DecisionsIn Lies, The Truth by NevaraAlyss
James sat in the delivery room with his eyes transfixed on Catherine's wrapped body. The dingy white sheet she'd been covered in had been stained a deep red around her legs. He didn't know what had happened. Everything had spiraled out of control in a few moments. Such joy was easily dashed and he realized how precious it was. Catherine was gone. Gone. Gone. The word had such weight that it was crushing him as it echoed in between his thoughts.
Lucy let out a soft coo and whimper from his arms. He looked down at his daughter and feigned a weak smile for her. A small fleshy fist poked out from under the swaddled blanket. He hushed her; his lips trembling to keep their composure as he wiped his damp eyes dry.
"I don't know what to do, Lucy," he admitted to the dozing newborn. He slowly rocked side to side. "My love – your mother – won't be there to watch you grow up. She won't be here to see her dreams of the Project coming to fr
In Lies, The TruthChapter 1: In Her PlaceIn Lies, The Truth by NevaraAlyss
James watched his wife, Catherine, on the operating table. Sweat dripped down her tired face. To him, she was still as beautiful as the day they had met and glowed more so even now. Linda looked at him from over her burgeoning belly, their eyes locked as she bit her lip. There was pain, an immense amount of it as she whimpered and let out a yelp. Her face grew red. Muscles trembled from exhaustion, but they still were urged to continue. Every breath and gasp pushed her further towards her goal: the birth of their child. They had been so excited about this moment. The anticipation only reaching its fevered pitch in the few short hours of her delivery. Even Catherine's son, Andrew, who had barely reached his teens awaited anxiously outside the door for the new arrival.
The place they were, wasn't the safest, nor the cleanest location to be. It was hardly ideal for the adults that were working there, let alone a newborn and young child. He didn't know how he

NOTE: I have decided to do away with journal-writing, so any important updates will be edited in here.
Wasteland Diaries follows the adventures of Michael Bigsley and his partner Mackenzie Grimmus across the Capital Wasteland. Roughly taking place about a year since the Lone Wanderer activated Project Purity, Bigs has since been banished from the Brotherhood of Steel and we find him struggling with life as a wastelander. No longer safe behind the Citadel's walls, the ex-scribe befriends Mack, a feisty damaged former-Regulator with alcohol addiction and a death-wish. The wasteland is caught in a bitter tug-of-war for control as the Enclave makes one last attempt to crush the Brotherhood and bring America back to its former glory...even if that means killing every mutant, ghoul, and irradiated man left.
Bigsley's tale begins with Broken Steel: Fallen
