Fallout 4 – An Unlikely Valentine (Main Quest, Part 4)

So getting to Park Street Station/Vault 114 wasn’t too bad–I mean, it’s been awhile since I’ve done it but I don’t remember any significant asskicking. However, entering the subway station was another story. I had Piper along with me, because why not. It’s important for someone to be my meat shield have my back due to my terrible aim. And of course, I’m met by goons with fucking machine guns.

Piper: “Blue, we’re surrounded here!”

Me: “Noooo shit!” (fires shitty weapon back at the thugs while hiding)

Goddamn I went through a lot of molotovs with these assholes. I finally got a chance to pick up a submachine gun from a ghoul thug’s dead body, boy did I make use of that. Time to eat some lead, bitches! Open up!

The subway leads to an entrance of Vault 114, and from there…more Triggermen.

The entrance to my second vault!

Damn Piper though…runs ahead and gets mowed down pretty quick. Whoops. Guess I should’ve gave her some armor.

Piper: “Ow!”

Me: “Goddamn it, Piper. You need to stop going in kamikaze style. If you’re gonna do that at least throw some rolled-up newspapers.”

Of course since I suck I don’t exactly have a lot of stimpacks to spare for her so…I had a tendency to flee back and set down a shit ton of mines (last resort). I was also low on bullets. At this point I was furiously looting bodies looking for any type of ammunition while I fled backwards…shit was getting dangerous. I spammed the hell of VATS for what ammo I did have…and that’s when I experienced the teleportation glitch where if you aim near a wall you teleport in VATS until you’re in front of a wall. WTF?

Eventually I clear out most of the thugs, minus the main room. I sneak around the corner with a sniper rifle and limited ammo in hand. First try, I snuck in but got destroyed by some Triggermen guards and some asshole named Dino, who before entering the main room is busy talking to whom I assume is a Nick Valentine, locked up in the Overseer’s office bove. Second time, I tried luring out two of the guards without alerting Dino…I tossed a lot of mines that time, but I still died. Third time, guards weren’t around. Got back to the main hall and proceeded to shoot Dino in the face. He ducked behind a container, and every few seconds he’d peak his head out and I’d proceed to shoot him. He died pretty quick because he couldn’t see me. That wasn’t…too bad. I will still worried that the guards would suddenly appear to I proceeded with caution to the Overseer’s door and hacked it open.

Damn. I knew I was going to like this guy…err, synth. Also, fuck yeah Bobblehead!

I mean my god, you probably don’t know this but I have a boner for 1940’s noir detectives. I mean sure, this one’s falling apart and he’s got wiring exposed–but he’s still seductive in his own charm and whitty phrases. This Valentine’s got my heart. He explains that he got held up here for weeks on end–good thing he doesn’t exactly need to eat–turns out the runaway daughter case he was chasing was actually in love with Skinny Malone–the big baddy of the Triggermen. Geez, to get caught up in this shit!

Me: “Okay. Help me find my son!” (why the fuck would I say that?)

Nick: “Sure, I’ll be glad to help you out but right now we have more important things to concern ourselves with. Let’s blow this popsicle stand!”

So while we run through the Vault to escape, Piper kinda goes MIA, but whatever, I’m crouched behind this old time robot, hiding our asses as we try to escape. His commentary certainly spices things up–“I hear fat footsteps through the door”–so yeah, I’m pretty infatuated with this guy. New companion once things smooth over. Uh, who’s Piper again?

Unfortunately, our escape is botched by Malone and the runaway daughter–his girl now. She taunts us with a baseball bat and her voice is grating on the ears…ahhh fuck that shit.

Damn it, I knew they weren’t going to make this easy.

Dumb bitch: “Awwww…poor little Valentine. Ashamed you got beat up by a girrrrl? I’ll just run home back to daddy, shall I?” (and yes, it sounds as annoying as it reads)

Malone: (shoots threats but sounds scared shitless) “Blah blah blah detective dick on my turf blah blah…don’t hurt me.” o:

Me: (facepalm)

Dumb bitch: “Oh no! Valentine must’ve sent her here to kill us!”

Me: “Wait, what? I didn’t know jack shit before I got here. I just want Valentine. You got a home you can go back to, why the fuck are you hanging around these idiots?”

(passes speech check) 😀

Dumb bitch: “Oh my God, you’re right! I’ve gotten all mixed up! I’m going home!”

Malone: “Darla? Where are ya going? Darla?!”

Maybe not so dumb bitch: “Back home, where I belong! This is goodbye for us!” (runs away)

Malone: “Oh come on, Nicky! It’s bad enough you cost me my men, now you cost me my girl too?!”

Me: “Uh…that was me that convinced her…”

Nick: “My friend did you a favour, Skinny. You always did have bad taste in women.”

oh-snap

Malone: (flustered) “You know what, Nick! I’ll let you go this time, but you have 10 seconds to get the fuck out of my Vault! 10…9…”

Nick: “Let’s skedaddle!”

Oh fuck, do we even have enough time?

Malone: “3…2…”

FUCK WE’RE RUNNING

Malone: “1…”

(LOAD SCREEN)

Me: “Yess! We made it!! :D”

Nick: “Thanks for your help.” (backstory on how he’s a synth and he woke up in a trash can. Shit. He’s like a Chobit. Maybe secretly all synths are failed sex dolls I mean what) “Meet me back in Diamond City, and we can set up a case to find your missing son.”

So guess what I did after that?
