22. Alone (Date Night)


Life after the defeat of the Institute is… a lot quieter. The heartbeat of the Commonwealth has slowed to a gentle, regular rhythm. Settlements are blooming. Sanctuary is living up to its name.

Vin and I have a routine, now. We have a family life, a work rota, time to just be partners and parents. It’s pretty quiet out there, now. The raider gangs don’t last long with the Minuteman patrols around, the Supermutant cells don’t even get a foothold anymore with the Brotherhood around. There are fewer ferals though they seem to be wandering in from beyond the borders these days and you can go for months without seeing an even partially functioning Gen one or two synth.

So me and my handsome cowboy have got into the habit of having a date night. There’s no shortage of ‘aunts’ and 'uncles’ to watch the boys for us. Usually, I get everything set up, pick the best produce (I’m a pretty good farmer, y'know!) and get the candles and flowers set up. Alright, you got me, I’m a soppy romantic - now shut up! Vin cooks. Oh man, Dunc and I never ate so well since Vin and Shaun moved in with us and we became… well, a family. I’d marry the guy in a heartbeat but he keeps avoiding that topic. I’m not worried that he’ll leave us or anything, well, maybe a little but honestly, he seems to be loving the family life as much as I am.

It’s good to settle down, even under a ceiling that isn’t made of rock. I did suggest, once, moving to Vault 88 - we call the town Nora’s Hope, now - but he says he needs the fresh air and sunshine and so do the boys. Then he called me pasty face. Not as much as I was, thankyou very much!

He should be here by now. He’s normally around all day before date night but a Minuteman alert popped up for Tenpines. He told me to stay here. He does that a lot now I’ve got some old synth’s left foot instead of the one I was born with. I can still hold my own but if it’s trouble anywhere with lots of stairs… I’m just not as nimble as I used to be. At least he took Dogmeat with him.

Maybe I’ll just radio in. The candle’s halfway down already and my stomach is rumbling. Well, if he’s not here to cook, I’d best get something ready for when he does appear. No, I’ll give him an hour, tops then I’ll radio. He’d better not stand me up. I was looking forward to the movie. Well, Vin used to love movies back in the day and he’s got a pretty good memory, so he does his best to recount the plot, sound effects and everything! Man it’s funny when the leading lady is chatty. For a guy with such a deep voice, his falsetto is hilarious.

Damnit, I miss him. Date night alone sucks mirelurk eggs.

From the beginning, I knew that I would end up in arts one way or another.

I have dabbled and fell in love with science and literature and sociologies and other fields of study, but I never forsook art. They all have a space in my little fist-sized heart. Still, I want to live as an artist first before anything else not because it feels more important or it seems easier to an uninformed person but because being an artist is a dream. And a continuous one at that.

Jack of All Trades

Being a multimedia artist is being adept in many things. Within the name itself, multimedia, expresses the idea that I am an artist of many fields. As stated previously, I know a thing or two about dipping my toes in unknown waters. It is an exhilarating experience filled with adrenaline, expectations, and experiences. And with the many fields of art, I, for sure, am having and will continue to have these artistic adventures where I will continue to learn and adapt to the trends of art like leaf that follows the river current.

Master of None

A common misconception of being a multimedia artist is that we know the basics of everything but not more than enough of one thing. We are not here to diss on Fine Arts and the people who have mastered one thing. As artist, we should support fellow artists in their pursuit of art. I see being a multimedia artist as a modern-day strategy and lifestyle of an artist. With many ways of art popping out everywhere like mushrooms on the forest floor, learning the lot of those gives more job opportunities.  

But Better than Master of One

It is not as though we do the multimedia part of it equally. Of course, one way or another, we will have our favorite(s) which we love or do better than the rest. It is just a matter of covering all our bases. In our eyes, we want to be the swiss knife of the art world. We are not saying that we will fight the knives and other tools out there. We just want to be useful and well-rounded.

Know Before You Go

At the end of the day, an artist is still an artist. Both bleed and put their souls into every of their works – like horcruxes but the less murder-y and more creative version of it). Efforts are put into our works and it is a legitimate career no matter how painful it is for us to hear otherwise. Hopefully, this sheds a light upon the darkened problem and misconception on us. Support the creatives and we will make the world a better place.
