    Amata definitely had that potential "settled down with the next door girl I grew up with" vibes which pretty much went to shit after I blowed her fathers head off.

    Moira ended up writing the Lone Wanders biography (if that's considered canon I dunno) and published the research he had gone out and done. She was kind of nuts but had a stupid sense of innocence. Whereas I always thought the LW was more the silent and serious type. I just think it's a neat and funny dynamic.


    The female Lone Wanderer I always pictured would go with Butch at some point in life. He bullied her in the vault and eventually they became companions in the Capital Wasteland and grew an attraction later on. hahah

    Or been a lesbian or gay or asexual.

    The fact the LW was absent from Maxson's history was BS, though.

    Why in the world did they do that?

    Probably to avoid "canonizing" too much.

    Let's be honest. We all know the real love interest of FO3 was Dogmeat and the Dogmeat from FO4 is actually their child, Dogmeat Jr. It is even supported in game by the 'Puppies!' perk, which can be taken whether or not Dogmeat had any contact with any other living being besides LW and allows him to produce offspring.

    Search your feelings. You will know it to be true.

    The relationship between Burke and the Lone Wanderer was actually kind of sweet and weird.

    My headcanon was always Burke was a scout for the Enclave and genocidal against Wastelanders.

    Falling for one is the reason he committed suicide in the end (as the letters imply, I believe).

    Would responding to a thread just under a month old but on the first page be borderline necroposting? :P

    I had to chip in, because this in particular really, really bothered me. Until I added some layers and thought far more deeply about it than anyone involved with writing it did.

    We know that Maxson was given the position of Elder by the Western leadership, after a run of 'failed' Elders, after Sarah conveniently died in the line of duty shortly after taking her fathers place. Chances are, it was a planned hit/coup by remaining hardliners to restore the Brotherhood to it's previous ideals/mission. Arthur, and the Head Scribe who wrote the entry, may not even know the full story themselves, as the former was still a kid, and the latter wasn't anywhere in the Citadel that I saw.

    At the least, it gives more scope for things not to be as clear cut as they seem. It could easily be a case of the unreliable narrator.

    If the Lone Wanderer, who is canonically a Knight and member of the Lyons Pride by the end of Broken Steel, was around I would dare say a hit squad wouldn't stand a chance, and they and Sarah deserted after a failed attempt; it would make sense to pretend they succeeded to save face and keep the facade. Maxson, who they were grooming, loved Sarah as his idol. If it came out she had been 'removed' for political reasons it wouldn't have gone well. This is what I personally choose to believe.

    No one of the Prydwen seems to have been there for the event, and we know people where already getting tetchy with Lyons prior to Broken Steel. The Outcasts where just the only ones brave enough to act at the time.

    After years of extensive research with our best Fallout scientists and countless hours looking up Dogmeat porn I can now conclude that Sarah was in Fallout 4.

    She was a glitch.

    Sadly, this is pretty much 90% better than all of Fallout put together and would have made an awesome sidequest in the Brotherhood questline.

    With very few exceptions, characters in recent bethesda games are so flat and generic that even the biggest fan of the games couldn't give a shit about them. Like, who the hell cares about sarah lyons?

    Uh, the hundreds of people who write fanfic about her and do fanart and speculated about her fate?

    I certainly am pissed about her being causally murdered.

    Eh, a lot of gamers like Bethesda games because they can project their own stories to the protagonists. Sarah Lyons and Reilly were both popular characters for the stereotypical "heroic love interest companion" (Butch is oddly enough the reverse for straight women).

    She was really. "Tough leader woman" and that was it.

    Charon's ridiculously popular too. Perhaps people like the idea of characters and try to add more to them. Then again a lot of them are just crappy romance fics.
