Hello, everyone.

I'm back with a new MC and similar concept to my SCP: Stranded fic. Thanks to the feedback received from the other fic, I have a bit more experience going into this one. As you can guess from the categories, this MC is instead going to be the protagonist of Fallout: New Vegas, of which I am much more knowledgeable in than the SCP universe. However, much like my last fic, I want to point some things out first before I get started.

Firstly, much like my SCP fic, this will primarily be an isekai fic with the MC being transported to the MGE universe and having to survive the onslaught of monsters and fanatics while trying to find a way back. As such, many characters and locales from Fallout WILL NOT be present. This is what I want to write, and while I welcome criticism wholeheartedly, please keep this in mind as you proceed.

Secondly, I will be drawing my MC's experience and items from a slightly modded version of the game. Most mods I use are bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements like patches and texture/weather overhauls. However, there will be pretty big ones like Project Nevada, A World of Pain, More Traits and Perks, and Dragonskin Tactical Outfit (with backpacks). Also DLCs.

Thirdly, this MC, my character from Fallout NV, is insanely overpowered and has too many weapons and items for me to list at once. As such, I will be scaling up the power balances in the MGE universe so that he isn't just going around bodying everything in a ten mile radius. I want this to be somewhat of a challenge for the MC, even if there's not much I can do about his advanced weapons and armor. I'll be doing everything I can to even out the conflicts, but if slightly overpowered characters, in any sense, are not something you fancy, then you may not enjoy this fic.

Fourthly, and I think this goes without saying, but please keep reviews and discussions civil. Just saying you don't like something without providing context or insulting someone for whatever reason is just a waste of everyone's time, including your own.

Finally, much like my last fic, I will be posting most Author's Notes/updates on this chapter in order to stay organized, and I will save big news for their own chapter.

I think that's about it. Let me know if y'all want a character sheet on the main character. I wasn't planning on doing one and only did one for the other fic in order to mimic the more document-based style of worldbuilding that the SCP universe is known for, but let me know and I'll make one.

UPDATE: 6/22/2020

Hello, everyone

I have been reading the reviews to see how I can better write this story, and I have been trying to take them into account as best I can. Seriously, thanks for the feedback, it means a lot.

However, I would like to address a complaint I have seen a couple times now and clarify it for you all. As much as many of you would like to try and tell me, Six does NOT have defined personality in the games or lore. I've tried googling it, and the only search result that even so much as talked about a set personality that came up was an anonymous Reddit user trying to justify a headcanon.

I don't mean to sound patronizing, but Fallout: New Vegas is a Role-Playing Game with a fully customizable main character. As such, while he may have had somewhat of a personality before he got brained by Benny, that is out the window when the player takes control of him. His dialogue options? They are just that: options. You can make him be really nice and white knight every character or you can make him be an asshole who exploits and even kills people for the lols. This may come as a shock to you, but Six IS an OC in a sense. He may have almost the same experience for every player across the board through the static quests, but not everyone will play him the same way with the same personality. If you don't like how Six behaves in this fic because it goes against what you think Six should act like, then I'm sorry but that is a personal grievance since there is no set way for him to behave.

Now if your criticism is that he is inconsistent, then that's different. While not enough has happened between him and the Order to determine whether or not he will behave according to his character, and I don't want to spoil what's to come, trying to make sure his character stays consistent has been my number one priority aside from developing the actual plot, so rest assured that when it comes down to it, he will stay grounded in his core beliefs, and I will do my best to make sure he doesn't go OOC. Anyway, I just had to get that out of the way before more people get the wrong idea. Please keep the reviews coming in, and I'll do my best to make use of them and make the story as good as I can. Thanks.

UPDATE: 6/25/2020

Hello again,

I don't have any real news this time, but I wanted to make you all aware of something if you aren't already. After I released Chapter 10 yesterday, I have gotten quite a few reviews. Unfortunately, Fanfiction{.}net is having another review delay right now for me, and I am not able to see any of the new reviews. If you're not aware, this is a rather common occurrence and has been plaguing this site for years now, so rest assured that, while I will see your reviews eventually, it will be a while. As such, I want to wait on writing the next chapter for now until the site gets its shit together, which could be anywhere from a couple days to a couple weeks. As soon as I read all of your reviews for this latest chapter, though, I'll continue. Sorry about that.

UPDATE:7/13/2020

Hello, everyone

Thanks for the continued support on this story and supplying me with feedback. I seriously can't thank you enough. I'd like to just mention somethings to at least answer a few people's questions and explain certain things I do.

Firstly, on the topic of Druella and the monsters. I'd like to simply make it clear now that I will NOT be writing a chapter or section that switches the point of view. I understand many other authors do it in order to build intrigue and dramatic irony, but I will not be doing that. I prefer to leave many things open and a mystery as to create a sense of suspense and foreboding. For instance, take the chase from Chapter 19 I just posted. Druella may have been following Six, but he didn't know for sure and didn't want to risk losing ground to verify that. Since he said very blatantly Druella scares him based on his scan, he will be doing everything in his power to avoid her. With her status left unknown, it can build a sense of suspense or even fear as to just where the Hell she went and what she is doing. This story will be told exclusively through Six's point of view, so if that's something you don't like, I'm sorry, but that's the route I'm taking. That's part of the reason why I've been so sparing on saying which monsters are what; because Six hasn't read the Monster Girl Encyclopedia.

Secondly, when it comes to reviews. As I've said in my last update, Fanfiction{.}net often has "review delays" wherein, you can post a review for a chapter, but it may be a while before I or anyone else sees it. The review is still there, the site is just not cooperating. Since I value your criticism, I wait for reviews to kind of slow down before writing and posting my next chapter. That way, I can read most of them and take their critiques into account going forward. I always encourage people to leave constructive criticism, that is, tell me what's bad, why it is bad, and how to fix it, but as long as it isn't rude or just saying something is bad without context, I WILL take it into account.

Other than a couple spoiler questions, I think that's about it. In terms of things like "What does Druella think about Six?" or "What is Druella doing?", most of those questions will be answered soon. Please keep the reviews coming, I know this site can be kind of stupid with them sometimes, but know that I appreciate them and will do what I can to take your critiques into consideration. Also, p.s., I added a couple more lines to the end of Chapter 19 to smooth over a criticism I've been seeing about the chapter being rushed. ;)

EDIT: One more thing, in regard to Six's limitations. Mostly, he is going to be limited by his lack of certain S.P.E.C.I.A.L attributes as every skill is maxed out. Perks are super situational, and he has too many to keep track of, so I'll only be actively monitoring new ones he gets during his stay in this world. In terms of material limitations, he is obviously limited by carry weight, which will come into play later since he's still got around 150 lbs. to spare, so the main limiter with his items and gear will be equipment degradation, which has been noted already with regards to things such as his helmet and Blood Nap. He can do light repairs as he has max Repair and a few weapon repair kits, but if something breaks, he's shit out of luck. Lastly, ammo. Since I've maintained following the in game mechanics for a while now, I will be also running with the mechanic that ammo weighs nothing. As such, while he has less than a thousand for every ammo type, excluding Microfusion and Energy Cells, he has a bit of everything as well as at least one weapon to use most of them. Meaning that, unless Six is stuck there for an EXTREMELY long time, ammo will likely not be an issue. Only exceptions are grenades, mines, throwables, and mini nukes.

UPDATE: 7/27/2020

Hi, all

I just wanted to give a couple warnings to everyone about the how I'm going to be writing this going forward.

Firstly, things are really starting to get busy for me again, so I may have slightly longer periods of time before I post the next chapters.

Secondly, I will be changing a few things from the canon MGE world in order to make the story better in the long run. The main changes I'm making are that Order soldiers WILL NOT have access to firearms of any kind and Monsters WILL NOT have any sort of sexual relations with underage kids. When I wrote that Six said there were no other firearms in the world, that was purely from his own perspective. He is unaware that there ARE some early stage firearms in this world, but that will come up much later. For the kids thing, I am fully aware that, in the MGE canon, there are a lot of underage shenanigans that involve sex, but I will simply not be doing that here.

There are two main reasons for this change. Firstly, it's simply to uncomfortable/fucked up to write about sexual topics involving underage children, even if they are monsters. Secondly, I'm trying to write both the Order and the Demon Realm as morally gray, and having the monsters of the Demon Realm openly admit to raping underage children would immediately shoot them into the red. I don't want that, I want both factions to be bad with a few redeeming qualities. I will explain how children work within the sex-oriented Demon Realm Societies in the future, but just know that this story will not contain nor imply ANY sexy times involving children, human or monster.

UPDATE: 9/8/2020

Hello, everyone

It's been a while since my last update, but I just wanted to get back to you all on something and get it off my chest. I feel like I was unclear with you all about something before I started this fic and wanted to be transparent with you. Don't worry, I don't plan on dropping this fic. In fact, with things starting to slow down a bit in my life, I should be able to keep from reverting to a monthly update schedule for now. Rather, I wanted to make it perfectly clear my current skill level and mindset when writing this fic.

Firstly, I am not a writer. At least, I don't see myself as one. Really, the only reason I'm writing this is because I have an overactive imagination and just needed to get an idea I thought others might like out of my head. In reality, I do not have any professional writing talents or insights into how to write the perfect story or character archetype. So, for the most part, I'm just doing this for fun. This is compounded by the fact that my life is rather busy and I'm doing this with no profit motive, and I wouldn't expect one. This is just a hobby of mine I do in my free time occasionally alongside video games and anime.

So, why do I bring all of this up? Well, it has to do with criticism. My stance on it has not changed since I laid it out for you when I started writing this. I welcome any and all criticism, and I will take them into account as long as they are not rude or just saying something is bad without context. However, while I will keep them in mind, actually working to improve my story with them is difficult when no further suggestions are given. I am not a writer, so trying to come up with fixes for complex writing issues just isn't something I am willing to spend so much time on for something I engage in so casually. Furthermore, I'd expect most people wouldn't come to this site if they were looking for high-quality reading material. I'm not saying you can't find it, but it certainly is rare, and unfortunately, I don't have the aforementioned skills or hardcore commitment to spend hours coming up with the best way to present and develop a story like this.

This is why I prefer you also include potential things I can do in order to make the story better. I'm not a professional, and I expect many of you guys are better at developing a story and characters than I am, so I mean it when I say anything helps. Thanks for reading.

UPDATE: 2/6/2021

Hello, everyone

It's been a while since my last update, and I really only have one thing to say. If you have beef with another user on this site, please, for the love of God, take it to the PMs. The reviews ARE NOT the place to engage in an argument with other users. I go there for criticism on how to make my story better and other users go there to leave me said criticism. We do not go to see a debate taking place between different users, especially if it has nothing to do with the fic. I understand some of y'all may not like my fic, and that's fine, but I've got chapters coming that I need feedback on, and I don't want random Ad Hominems cluttering the page. I want to post this here as a new rule/warning. If it gets too out of hand, I will begin removing said arguments in full, as they do nothing to help me improve the story. I don't want to remove reviews, but I will. Thanks for reading.

UPDATE: 5/6/2021

Hello, everyone

I'm going to be having more time to write now, so things are going to be speeding up pretty soon. One thing I will also be doing, tho, is going back to clean up old chapters of typos, grammatical errors, and certain glaring plot holes I noticed upon rereading. Most won't be worth going back to reread, tho there will be certain changes to action scenes like the escape from Lescatie as I want to include more destruction overall. One important change I have already made, tho, is that I have changed Anastasia and Ender's age. They are now much older, but still look no where near that age. This is because I am polishing up the event timeline a bit to make more coherent sense when discussing history. Thank you for reading.

UPDATE: 7/21/2021

Hello, everyone

Sorry I haven't been able to upload as much as I thought, I got a lot busier than anticipated, so I made this latest chapter longer to kinda make up for it. That being said, I'd like to talk about the next chapter, as well as certain chapters in the future. As you may have figured out from the end of the latest chapter, there is about to be naughty stuff going down with the main character. I know I haven't been overly graphic or detailed with sexual topics involving other characters, but it will be different whenever Six is getting it on, seeing as how this story is from his perspective. Therefore, the next chapter, chapter 43, will be much shorter and entirely dedicated to a sex scene. From now on, any chapter with the title "A Night With [INSERT CHARACTER HERE]" will be a dedicated sex scene. Don't worry, tho. If you are not comfortable with a graphic sex scene, know that I will not be putting anything of plot significance in these sex chapters. Thus, all you need to know about them is that Six and some other character get it on, and you will be entirely free to skip to the next chapter without losing any story info.

Also, please keep in mind that this is my first time writing smut in any capacity, so bear with me as it may not be as good as other smut you may have read, if that matters to you. Thank you for reading.

UPDATE: 10/4/2021

Hello, everyone

Again, I am sorry I have been unable to post chapters as of late, I have been very busy IRL (as usual). I should have some free time coming up, so expect the next two chapters relatively soon. The reason I'm posting this update, tho, doesn't have anything to do with my update schedule. Instead, I feel I need to address recent events here in our neck of the internet since I've been getting a lot of PM's about it.

As you've probably heard, Kenkou Cross, the Author of MGE, is on a warpath right now hunting down any fics that feature mamono being harmed in some fashion. I haven't seen if any of the stories on the regular MGE Fanfic pages have been hit, but as of writing this, both NewTypeAuthor's The Knight and StaffSergeant's The Good Hunter have both been wiped. NewType has restarted his fic, reposting chapters, but I haven't seen any reaction from StaffSergeant yet. Even with it's smut and overall neutral/optimistic view towards mamono, my story contains mamono being harmed or killed at multiple points, and thus, is likely a target as well. So, what do I think about all this?

I'm disappointed in KC, obviously, but overall, I'm not worried. Not only is this an extremely childish action to take on KC's part, but it also won't work in the long run. I'm mostly surprised that KC, even though he's been on the internet for a long time, doesn't seem to understand how the internet works. It should be painfully obvious to anyone who's used the internet for any extended period of time that trying to police it doesn't fucking work. It's a fool's errand. Sure, he can wipe a few stories on this site, but they'll be back up and posted to several other sites, including this one, in relatively no time flat. It's not a matter of rights or morals, it's a matter of principle. In the modern day, the internet is a force of nature. Trying to police it like he wants would be like trying to move an immovable object. It fucking can't be done.

That's why I'm not worried. Once he understands that his actions are pointless, and all he's doing is making himself look bad, then this will all die down. The only question now is how long it'll take for that to happen.
