    I've got this that I've been thinking about putting up for review: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11968541/1/The-Litany-of-the-Elders

    Basically during his time in the army, the male!SS was best friends with Roger Maxon, the founder of the Brotherhood of Steel. The SS is mentioned throughout the Brotherhood's religious texts and is almost like a minor deity to them except it's clear his views don't really align with the Brotherhood's.

    The story is still very much in its infancy and the Prydwen hasn't arrived yet so there's been limited contact but I've enjoyed what I've seen so far.

    I've been re-reading Fallout: Equestria. Disclaimer: It's the only MLP fic I read nowadays, but it's aged well and the writing quality is awesome. The author found a nice balance between the angst of the post-Apocalypse and the fluffiness of MLP. I especially like the way we're shown the history of the Wasteland.

    There's Thistle and Black as Oil by SickleYield. Both are set in the Capital Wasteland featuring mainly side characters or OCs. It's been a while since I've read either of them but I remember enjoying them a lot. SickleYield's just got a page-turner sort of writing in my opinion.

    One of my most favorite fics is New California Dreaming by Hotpoint. It stars an NCR trooper in the Capital Wasteland who does many things in parallel of the Lone Wanderer. The characters are very interesting and likable and the author provides some refreshers in lore at the end of each chapter. My only disappointment is that the author stopped writing and it doesn't look like they'll ever start it back up. However, the work that is written out is really well done and fun to read.

    The Wanderers Diary, a telling of Fallout 3 through the eyes of an increasingly deranged protagonist. The first few chapters are fun but not great, later on it becomes something that's actually pretty awesome.
