Feeling fully rested Alex got up from the ground, and headed down the small hill which lead towards a broken road. Making it to the road Alex noticed that there were cracks on it and that parts of the road were gone leaving only dirt and rock where pavement once covered it so long ago.
The road branched in two different directions one leading south towards a destroyed highway, and the other leading northwest towards what looked like a small town. Alex decided to head towards the small town in hopes that he could find his dad, or maybe even another living soul in this mass of barren lonely land.
Heading down the road Alex observed the vehicles that were on the road, both rusted very badly and damaged beyond use. Alex was never one to like cars, but was fas

Fallout: Alex's Journey -Chapter One
Chapter One: Escape From The Vault
"Wake up! Come on Alex, wake up!" Amata yelled while shaking Alex frantically trying to wake him up.
Alex woke up rubbing the sleep from his eyes, but wondered what's gotten Amata so terrified and also why the alarms where going off as well.
"What's going on Amata?" Asked Alex who sat up in his bed and stretched his still tired limbs.
"You've got to get out of here! Your dad is gone and my father's men are looking for you!" Yelled Amata
Upon hearing this Alex got up from his bed with great speed and began to wonder what she meant by his dad was gone, Scratching his black hair which many of the resident's of the vault said he inherited from his father along with hazel eye's. "What do you mean he's gone?" Asked Alex.
"He's left the vault and my father has gone crazy and is blaming your for it." Said Amata still very terrified.
"That's impossible, no can open the vault even if you could I don't think your father and his men would be very happy about it."

Chapter One: Morning In The Fatherland
It was morning in the Fatherland, the sun rising up from the horizon basking Berlin in a blanket of light and warmth. Many of the citizens getting up from there beds preparing for the beautiful day ahead of them, Berlin came to life with people heading off to work or just taking advantage of the weather today to get out and enjoy the city that they live in.
Elsewhere in Berlin inside the chancellery in one of the many rooms sleeps a young man who looks like he was sixteen years old, with the curtains keeping the rays of the sun out of the room of the young man. The doors opened up to have a maid walk in who was in her twenties, who then walked up to the curtains and pulled them apart to let the sun flood the room with light.
"It's time to get up Lambrecht, your family is already up and waiting for you to join them for breakfast." Said the maid staring at the bed where the young man was sleeping in.

where god is a butcher

where the hungry men reincarnate
as bulls. a cleaver spattered in red
teases: chase me, chase me now,
caresses a thigh, then thrusts
its tongue like a knife.
ii.
he hangs in wet pieces.
the street salivates with rain,
swallows the leaves
that once lined the way.
a boy eyes his flank,
an old man trades silver
for his feet, a girl enters

she rubs salt against his flesh,
kneads wine into his back, stiff

Now, I may get in trouble for this from both sides of the historical fiction camp, but I do not believe in a hard difference between historical fiction and alternative historical fiction. Let me take that one step further, I do not believe in the concept of historical fiction, apart from the alternative bit. The reason for my belief is that as soon as you begin to fill in the blanks, for events and motivations outside of the historical record, you have already altered the history—not to mention the dubiousness of most modern historical records.

Chapter Two: Arrival at Megaton

Alex sat on the ground resting his tired body before proceeding into this new world of emptiness and dust, but also gathering his thoughts about how he would find his dad in such a huge extensive world.

Feeling fully rested Alex got up from the ground, and headed down the small hill which lead towards a broken road. Making it to the road Alex noticed that there were cracks on it and that parts of the road were gone leaving only dirt and rock where pavement once covered it so long ago.

The road branched in two different directions one leading south towards a destroyed highway, and the other leading northwest towards what looked like a small town. Alex decided to head towards the small town in hopes that he could find his dad, or maybe even another living soul in this mass of barren lonely land.

Heading down the road Alex observed the vehicles that were on the road, both rusted very badly and damaged beyond use. Alex was never one to like cars, but was fascinated with technology that was used in the 21st century; he loved to learn and discover new things in books or in person, his father James and Jonas always said that Alex was a swift learner, and picked up things quicker than other children in the vault.

Alex finally made it to the town only find that all of house's there were destroyed, but still were standing up in the wastes. Moving forward to the town hoping to find anyone in the destruction of the town, Alex noticed a sign leading to the town which had the name Springvale on it.

Alex started looking inside the ruin house's for a single person in Springvale, but not finding anyone except for rubble and things left behind by the people who once lived in them. After looking in the few houses in the area, Alex heard music far in the distance which was coming from the distance heading towards Springvale.

Moving out of the ruined house to see the source of the music, Alex wondered who or what was playing music out here in the wasteland. That's when he saw a round object floating towards Springvale and himself; Alex got a better look at the object which was a robot with antennas sticking out from the back along with what looked like a weapon on the bottom of it.

That's when the robot floated closer towards Springvale, and the music became a little clearer to hear, Alex recognized the song that was playing "America the Beautiful;" which had played in Alex's US history class many times during his time in the vault. When the robot got closer to Alex, it stopped and looked at Alex as if the robot where observing him while the patriotic music was still playing. After a few minutes passed, the robot floated off towards the direction where Alex had walked a little while ago.

Alex wondered who would be using a bot to play patriotic music to an empty world, but Alex decided to move on and head out of Springvale in order to find any signs of human life. Heading down the road Alex noticed a sign up ahead with the name Megaton on it, along with an arrow that was pointing down the road.

This made Alex felt a little more hopeful about finding people out here, and his father as well. Moving faster down the broken road, Alex couldn't wait to see people out here, and to find his dad so he could convince him to come back to the vault in order to fix everything.

Continuing up the broken road, Alex came across the same sign that he encountered before he left Springvale to find Megaton. Alex headed right where the sign pointed towards; That's when he could see large pieces of metal sticking out from the distance which he thought was Megaton.

Walking to Megaton Alex noticed a few places that had grass growing, but the grass was dried up and dead just like every other plant was. That's when he came face to face with Megaton and the metal that covered it, this reminded Alex of castles that he had seen in both textbooks and in a few Grognak comics that he had.

Alex approached what must've been the gate to get into the heavily fortified settlement, that's when he noticed a robot at the gate which was different from the one he meet earlier, but what he really noticed was the jet turbine above the gate which was still working to Alex's Surprise. Coming up to the gate that's when the turbine started up and the metal gates started moving up, Alex ducked behind a rock and covered his ears do to the great amount of noise that was being produced.

After a minute Alex uncovered his ears and looked up, the loud noise was gone and the gate was opened to revel other gate inside. Making his way to the other gate the robot welcomed him to the settlement with a cowboy accent, which made Alex chuckle which he hadn't done so far today.

Opening the gate Alex wondered in and found a town inside of the metal fortress outside, this amazed Alex how he could go from a ruined town to a place that was the closest thing to civilization that could be found.

That's when a man wearing a duster coat with a badge on it and wearing a cowboy hat, walked up to Alex where he was standing. "Well I'll be damned your from that vault. Names Lucas Simms mayor and sheriff whenever needed, welcome to Megaton."

"Alex Steiner, it's nice to meet another person out here." Said Alex reaching out his hand to shake Lucas hand, both shook hands and Lucas couldn't help but be pleasantly surprised.

"Well mannered and polite, it's nice to see that in people out here. Just holler if you need anything." Said Simms.

That's when Alex knew how Lucas could help him out." I was Actually looking for my father, middle-aged guy. Have you seen him here?"

Lucas shook his head before looking back at Alex again. "Sorry kid, I have so much to here I can't keep tack of ever visitor that comes to town. You might want to ask around town." Said Lucas

Alex was disappointment by the answer that he got, but he knew if he looked around a little he would find his father. Thanking Simms for the help Alex headed down towards what looked like the town center, looking around he saw that the houses were made out of metal and that there were pipes going around the town.

Going on towards the center Alex saw what looked like a two headed cow eating what little grass there was, jumping back a little he had never seen anything like this so far in his travels; that's when Alex noticed that there was a bomb surrounded by water, but then he noticed it wasn't a normal bomb it was an atomic bomb. Alex wondered why the people here would build the town around a bomb that may or may not be active, but Alex didn't have any knowledge on bombs so he decided not to tamper with it knowing that it could blow if he tried to disarm it.

Alex turned around and took notice of what looked like a restaurant, with a bar and a sign hanging out with the name Brass Lateran on it. That's when he heard a growling coming from his stomach, which reminded him that during his hasty escape from the vault he'd forgotten to eat something today.

Coming up to the bar, Alex sat down on one of the stools at the bar, Alex then noticed another person sitting there who was eating an unknown type of meat which was impaled on a stick.

"Hey there stranger, what can I do for you?" Asked the brown haired woman, who was wearing a red jumpsuit.

Coming back to his sense, he looked at her and then answered. "Yeah actually, I was wondering if you've seen my father around here? He's middle-aged and has a suit like me."

She could only shake her before speaking again. " Sorry sweetie haven't seen your father around. But that is so sweet how you're looking for him, hope you find your father before it's too late."

Once again Alex was disheartened by the answer that he was given, but didn't dwell on this for too long and decided to grab something to eat." What do you got to eat?"

"Here you go sweetie, what sound's appetizing?" Said the woman as she handed Alex what looked like the menu which was pieces of paper in a clipboard.

Looking at the menu Alex noticed the different food items that were written on them: squirrel on a stick, iguana on a stick, mutfruit, and mirelurk cakes. Alex couldn't help but stare in confusion at the menu after viewing the items names; never in his life had he heard of such weird names for food, but luckily for him the restaurant had noodles on the menu which had to be the most appetizing thing on there.

"I'll have the noodles please." Alex said, while he handed back the menu.

The woman grabbed the clipboard and placed it under the bar, and brought her attention back to Alex. " That will be seven caps please."

Alex was imminently confused by this; he wondered what would she want with bottle caps, they were nothing but trash to be thrown away after opening up a Nuka-Cola, never to be seen again.

"I'm sorry miss, but I don't have any caps on me. What do you want with bottle caps?"

"Well I guess that figures since your from that vault, you wouldn't know anything about caps. I'll tell you what since you've been so nice, I'll help you out a little." The woman said putting a hand on his shoulder.

After a while of explaining how bottle caps worked out here in the wasteland, Alex got a better understanding of how things worked out here. Alex couldn't believe that he had to pay for his own food, every meal that he'd eaten before this pint was free to the vault resident's.

Thinking on how he could get caps so he could get supplies for the journey ahead of him. "Where do you think I could get some caps?" Asked Alex

"I think you should try Moriarty's Saloon there's people that could use help, and they'll probably pay good." The woman answered back.

That's when Alex got up and prepared to head towards Moriarty's Saloon to look for work to gather caps for the road ahead. Thanking the woman for helping him out with learning how things worked out here, and learned her name which was Jenny Stahl.

Making his way up the walkway which was made out of sheet metal, he noticed the saloon which was higher than any other building in Megaton. Making it to the door of the saloon, Alex stopped in order to gather himself for whatever was going to be inside.

Chapter One: Escape From The Vault

"Wake up! Come on Alex, wake up!" Amata yelled while shaking Alex frantically trying to wake him up.

Alex woke up rubbing the sleep from his eyes, but wondered what's gotten Amata so terrified and also why the alarms where going off as well.

"What's going on Amata?" Asked Alex who sat up in his bed and stretched his still tired limbs.

"You've got to get out of here! Your dad is gone and my father's men are looking for you!" Yelled Amata

Upon hearing this Alex got up from his bed with great speed and began to wonder what she meant by his dad was gone, Scratching his black hair which many of the resident's of the vault said he inherited from his father along with hazel eye's. "What do you mean he's gone?" Asked Alex.

"He's left the vault and my father has gone crazy and is blaming your for it." Said Amata still very terrified.

"That's impossible, no can open the vault even if you could I don't think your father and his men would be very happy about it." Said Alex, still not believing his father would do such a thing. He knew that his father and the overseer never got along with each other for the amount of time he's spent in the vault.

"Well, it's happen and now my dad's man are questioning Jonas right now for information. That's why you need to go right now, you can escape through the secret tunnel that's in my dad's office. But you should gather your stuff before you head out." Said Amata.

That's when Alex started gathering up some things for the trip like a baseball bat which he had during his time in little league, medicine from the med kit that was in his room just in case of emerges, extra vault jumpsuit's in case the one he was wearing was to get dirty.

After getting the vault suit's he looked at the top of his dresser and a picture frame with a picture of him along side his dad, which was taken on his tenth birthday party where James and Jonas built him an area to let him shoot his BB gun and where he shot his first radroach, after that they took a photo to remember that day by.

Alex snapped out of his thought's of better times in his vault, and took the photo out of the frame and folded it up than place it inside his suit and proceeded towards his bedroom door.

"Alex wait!" Amata said to Alex before he could pass through the door's to the living room. "I took this from my dad's office, I thought you could use this to help you get out of here, but please use it as a last resort." Amata said pulling out a 10mm pistol.

Alex stared at the gun that was in the hand of his oldest friend, he took the pistol from Amata. "Don't worry Amata I won't use it unless I need too." Said Alex which put a smile on Amata's face remembering that her friend wouldn't hurt anyone unless he needed to protect either himself or another person

Amata left Alex telling him to meet her at the vault door and if she wasn't there to go on without her to look for his father. Alex made his way out of his room only to be stopped by officer Kendall who was holding a baton in his right hand." Hold it right there Alex you're coming with me to see the overseer!" Yelled Kendall who was ready to use force if necessary to bring Alex in for questioning.

Luckily for Alex, a few radroaches came out of nowhere and attacked Kendall giving Alex enough time to escape through the door that was to his left. Alex found himself in the men's bathroom with the sounds of radroaches outside along with officer Kendall who by the sound of it was winning against the radroaches.

Alex began to start sneaking to avoid Kendall, who was now walking around mumbling angrily to himself trying to find Alex. After a while of sneaking, Alex heard a familiar voice begging for help to save his mother and then Kendall's voice telling him to save her himself.

Alex decided to investigate even if it meant being caught and dragged to the overseer, but he couldn't leave without helping out his childhood bully with his problem. Alex made his way through the woman's bathroom towards where he heard the voice's speaking, when he came across Butch who looked like he was about cry.

"Hey man you've got to help me my mom's trapped with the radroaches! Look, I know I've been horrible to you all those years but you've got to help her please!" Said Butch, pleading with Alex to help save his mom who he loved deeply even if she was an alcoholic.

"Don't worry Butch I'll save your mom, you have my word." Said Alex getting his baseball bat ready to whack a few radroaches.

Butch was so glad to hear and led Alex to the room where his mom was being attacked. Inside Ellen was on the bed trying to fend off the radroaches and screaming for help; Alex came in and whacked the roaches away from her and even hitting one towards the wall so hard it left a big mess of insect gut's on it.

After the last of the roaches had died, Ellen just walked out of the room mumbling to herself about wanting a drink. Then Butch came in excited that Alex had saved his mother just in time, that's  when decided to give Alex his tunnel snake's jacket as a way to say thanks.

Alex took the jacket in his hands and examined it for a while, but gave Butch back his jacket saying that Butch would need it more than he would. Confused by Alex's action of giving his jacket back from the same he tormented for so many years, but took it anyway. Alex left Butch and Ellen behind, to get to the office of the overseer in order to get out and find his dad.

"There you are! I'm getting sick of playing cat and mouse with you; you're coming with me!" Said Kendall who was behind Alex and was pretty tired of searching for him.

Alex silently cursed himself for being spotted, he had hoped to not confront Kendall cause he didn't want to kill him even if it was for his own survival. Backing up slowly, Alex prepared his bat ready to swing to knock out Kendall. Then Butch ran up behind and threw his jacket over Kendall's head; then jumped on top of Kendall who now was trying to throw Butch off.

"Get going I'll hold him as long as I can!" Said Butch holding on tight making sure Kendall couldn't get to Alex.

Alex nodded to Butch, thanking him for what he was doing for him. Alex started running towards the stairway leading to the Atrium, that's when he heard the sounds of a flamer going in the distance.

Climbing the stairs Alex got closer to the Atrium and to the sounds of the same flamer he heard down stairs accompanied by British accent as well. Alex realized that it was Andy the Mister Handy robot who was fighting off radroaches, but there was someone else fighting roaches alongside Andy who looked like he was part of vault security.

Moving forward's with his bat ready to swing at the officer, if he became hostile at the sight of Alex Getting closer to the officer he finally realized it was Gomez, hopefully he wouldn't attack him.

Gomez turned to see Alex standing in the hallway, holding his bat in both hands ready to swing."whoa, easy their kid I don't want to harm you. Look, whatever you're planing on doing just get out of here and I'll pretend I never say you." Said Gomez, as he stepped to the side.

Lowering his bat Alex started walking towards the door leading him closer to the overseer's office, but stopped when he was close to Gomez and faced him. "Thank you, I won't forget what you did for me."

"Your a good kid, you never did anything to deserve this. Now go find your dad if you can." Said Gomez, staying where he was as he watched Alex walk away.

Alex considered stopping to say good bye to Stanley, but knew if he waited around long enough then he'd be caught by security. Making it to the Atrium he say two vault residents talking about leaving the vault just like his father had while he was asleep

One of them ran into the corridor leading to the entrance to the vault, but the sounds of guns filled the air along with a scream coming from the woman that the resident was with before rushing off. She also ran towards the dead male only to be shot as well leaving two dead bodies in the corridor.

Shocked by the death of two people, Alex dropped his bat alerting the two officers to his presence and started shooting at Alex. Coming back to his senses he began to run to the overseer's office, ignoring the many radroaches that were crawling all over the place.

After getting through the roaches and the control room, Alex heard voices coming from a room up ahead. Sneaking up to a window, he saw Amata sitting in a chair who looked like she was being interrogated by the overseer and officer Mack.

"Please be reasonable Amata, all I want to do is have a chat with your friend that's all." Said the overseer, trying to get her to speak.

"You mean like how you chatted with Jonas before Mack killed him!" Said Amata

Upon hearing this Alex felt his chest tighten up greatly, Jonas a good friend to both him and his father for all those years was gone now and Alex couldn't do anything to stop Jonas death. Mack on the other hand got angry, and was about to beat Amata, who was holding up her arms to defend herself.

But the overseer stopped Mack before he could do any damage to Amata. "Jonas wouldn't cooperate with us, but if you tell us where he is I will make sure that he comes out of this with a clean slate."

Alex knew he had to save Amata before things got violent, but remembered that he forgot his bat back at the Atrium when he ran from security. Then he remembered that he had the 10mm on the side of his waist, having no other weapon on him, he decided to use it to save his best friend.

"I'm sorry father, I can't betray my friend it wouldn't be right." Said Amata, turning her head away from her father.

The overseer  had enough of Amata's rebellious behavior, and wanted to get information from her now." So be it Amata. Officer Mack, beat the answers out of her." The overseer stepped out of the way of Mack to let him do his job.

Mack with a sinister smile, got his baton ready to start getting answers out of Amata through brute force. But stopped when Alex came through the door holding up his pistol with shaky hands, telling Mack to step away from Amata and telling her to get out to safety.

"Ah, the trouble maker's son has finally arrived. I hope you're here to turn yourself in young man you and your father have cause enough trouble for one day." Said the overseer, who was calm even when a gun was being pointed at him.

"Look I don't want anymore trouble, just let me leave the vault and I'll find my dad, and he can explain everything." Alex said keeping the 10mm pointed at the overseer and at officer Mack.

"After everything that's happen, you expect me to let you leave just like your father without paying for the crimes you've committed against the vault. Officer Mack disarm him and throw him into a cell." Said the overseer stepping behind Mack.

Mack stepped forward being careful not to provoke Alex into shooting him, but Alex kept stepping away from Mack keeping his pistol pointed at him.

"Give me the gun son and I'll go easy on you."

"No, you killed Jonas and almost hurt Amata." Said Alex, as Mack was getting closer.

The overseer was getting more frustrated as time passed, he just wanted to get this over with." What are you waiting for officer! Disarm him right now!"

Mack rushed forward in an attempt to grab the 10mm away, but Alex pulled the trigger and officer Mack fell over with a bullet in his head. Horror and shock overwhelmed Alex at what happen a few seconds ago, he murdered a human being in blood with his own hands.

The overseer was shocked by this as well with his mouth hung open " My god son! What have you done! Guards, the traitor has murdered someone in cold blood!" The overseer ran off to gather up whatever was left of vault security.

Walking out of the room Alex headed towards the overseer's office in order to leave the vault and find his father, but Alex felt like his stomach wanted to empty itself of all the contents that were inside.

Getting closer to the overseer's office, Alex notice a familiar body laying on the ground through the window. Hurrying to see whose body it was, but when Alex goes to the body he dropped on his knees. It was Jonas body all bloody and beaten from many strikes from a baton delivered by the now dead officer Mack.

Alex wanted to cry about everything that has happened in his life so far today, but knew he needed to be strong no only for dad and himself, but also for Amata, which made Alex remember to go check up on her to make sure that she was doing OK before he heads into the office.

But Alex noticed a holodisk laying on the ground near Jonas, he picked it up and observed it a little before putting it in his Pip-Boyand going off to check on Amata.

Entering the opened door he say Amata sitting there at the table with her head on her hand, she looked like she was thinking about everything that has happened, and trying to calm herself down. She didn't notice Alex who had a worried look on his face, he never liked seeing Amata like this for as long as they were friends in this place.

"Hey Amata, are you doing OK?" Asked Alex, in a calm voice trying to give her as much comfort he could give.

Amata looked back at Alex with tears in her eyes, but wiping them away with the sleeves of her vault suit. "Yes, I'm alright. But what about you, how are you holding up?"

In his head Alex knew he wasn't doing good right now, but he gave Amata the best smile he could muster for her." I'm doing alright Amata, don't worry about me."

She couldn't help but smile at Alex who she thought was taking this whole thing better than she was." Alex you need to get to the vault door, I'll meet up with you there if I can."

Only nodding Alex left the room and made his way to the door leading to the overseers' office. The door was locked up tight, but Alex got out a bobbing pin and a screwdriver that he had gotten when he was packing up his things. It was lucky that he had learned how to lock pick from Amata when there were younger.

With a click, the door opened to reveal a desk and chair in the center of the room. There was also a terminal behind the desk; Alex hurried to the terminal and logged on, but Alex didn't know the password to the computer, and to hack into it. He was lucky to become a Pip-Boy technician when the G.O.A.T came around, he would work on a lot of tech in the vault like: Pip-Boy's, terminals, and Andy as well.

After many tries and much code breaking, Alex finally hacked the terminal and opened the overseer's secret tunnel. Looking back the desk began to rise up from the ground to reveal steps leading down towards the vault door, and Alex's freedom as well.

Heading down the stairs he came to another corridor leading towards another door heading to the entrance. But there were roaches inside as well, Alex just ran to the door never looking back once.

Once through the door Alex felt like he was getting closer to his goal, he started walking towards a door with a button next to it. Pushing the button the door lowered and Alex walked through until he saw it the vault door, the same one that his father left through not so long ago.

He stood in awe at the sight, never seeing it before only hearing about it from people around the vault. Then he saw the control panel near the small stairs leading to the door, walking up he studied it for a little before putting hand on the switch to the door.

Alex took a deep breath in and exhaled, getting ready for what was going to happen. He flipped the witch and sirens started to sound, and a mechanical arm above started to move towards the door. Amata came in at the same time and stood there right next to Alex, both awed by the sight of the door rolling to the side to reveal a cave.

"You did it Alex! I never thought it could be done, but you proved me wrong!" Said Amata so excited by the opening of the vault.

Alex thought for a moment about Amata, he was worried about her and come up with an idea." Amata, why don't you come with me to help find dad?"

"Look Alex that sounds great, but I need to stay here and make sure my father doesn't hurt anyone else. Go find your dad and if you find him, tell him I'm sorry for everything." Said Amata putting her hands on Alex's shoulders.

That's when they decided to close the door on Alex, and let whatever was in the cave deal with him. Soon the sirens went off again signaling that the door would close once again but before this happen Alex began yelling from the top of his lungs."I'll find dad Amata! Then I'll come back and fix everything! Goodbye, Amata!"

Amata waved to Alex before the door finally closed, and a gust of air blew around Alex. Left in the dark of the cave Alex activated the light on his Pip-Boy, lighting up the whole area with much-needed light.

Alex began walking through the cave, in an attempt to find an exit out of this cave. That's when Alex remembered the tape that was in his Pip-Boy, finding it in notes it was labeled note from dad and played it.

Listening to the tape Alex got earlier, it was dad explaining that he had something important to work on and how Alex would be safer in the vault, then the tape ended with Jonas voice coming up and then his father's voice saying he loved him.

This made Alex more determined to find his dad out there, no matter what it took. After a while of wondering, he say light up ahead and rushed to wards it, reaching the source it was a door with little parts of light coming out from the other side of the door.

Turning off this Pip-Boy's light, he reached for the door and opened it, Alex was blinded by the light from the sun for only a moment, that's when he saw it the surface. He had learned a lot about it from the many books he read while in the vault, but it wasn't like anything in the books everything looked dead and there was dust flying everywhere.

But this wouldn't stop Alex from doing what he came up here to do, find his dad and maybe get some answers as well."I'll find you dad, wherever you are."
Fallout: Alex's Journey -Chapter One
This is my first fan fiction that I've ever worked on in my life, but this also something I wanted to work on to get back into writing which can be explained more in a journal I wrote about the subject. I hope you guy's enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing this.

The Summary: A young man from Vault 101 by the name of Alex Steiner escapes from the Vault and find's himself in the vast world of the Wasteland, now he must venture through the many hardships of this new world that he has stumbled into. But he will come across Roxie Powell a young woman trying to make a living in the dust and radiation of the Wasteland, and together they will search for Alex's father, will they find him or will the Wasteland sallow these two up in the harshness of the world or will it keep them distracted long enough for them to lose the trail.

Chapter Two: bradw34.deviantart.com/art/Fal…

Fallout 3 belongs to Bethesda.
Loading...
I know that I have been away form Deviant art for to long, I guess life just got in the way from moving, finding a new job in my area, and just getting everything in my new apartment settled down. I've also been neglecting my writing as well there are also different reason's why this has been: from me not being able to know how to start a story, me not wanting to write when I should, and having to go to my job and then being to tired to write when I get back from work, and having writer's block.

But I've also got to get back to playing Fallout 3 which has been a very long time ago. So thanks to Fallout 3 I've been on a Fallout craze recently and have been watching and reading all that is Fallout, so that's when I got the idea that maybe I should try my hands at writing fan fiction for the Fallout 3 universe. What I'm hoping will happen with this fanfic is me being able to get back into writing by working with a universe and characters that already exist and then playing around with it like Play Doh.

The Summary for the fanfic.

So hopefully I'll be able to get the first chapter up before to long and the adventures of Alex and Roxie through the Wasteland can begin. Thank you for reading and have a good day.

I am a little confused; it seems you favorited the latest chapter of my story 5 seconds after I uploaded it, and yet you don't appear to be just spamming favorites. I'm quite flattered, but I would like to know why you did that; did you really like the story, was it the cover image, or was it an accident?

That's okay, I guess I just thought that someone favoriting my story was too good to be true.
