Fallout Humans: Blackjack by ArtieStroke Fallout Humans: Blackjack by ArtieStroke
And for the second in the series: Blackjack, out favorite dysfunctional wasteland wanderer. Blackjack's got a special place in my heart: She tries her best, but it's not quite there. Something I can relate to.
Well, except that my screw-ups don't end up killing. But, that's relative to our worlds. Enjoy!

She actually did a small reading from Project Horizons as Blackjack, so she actually DOES make a good Blackjack retroactively XD

These are pretty awesome. You do a good job of capturing their characters just in the pose and expressions. And the cards tucked into the armor were a nice touch. Although I gotta wonder why I don't see her depicted wearing a helmet with cards on it, ala Vietnam. Of course, she doesn't wear her helmet much. Maybe I'm over thinking it.

Honestly, I don't feel Blackjack's much of a helmet wearer. Her blatant disregard for her own health seems to point to that. Also, it was a bit of an aesthetic choice as well, in order to show off her short, unkempt hair.

Correct!!

There is an expression in the wasteland "Old World Blues". It refers to people so obsessed with the past they can't see the present, much less the future, for what it is. They stare into the "What was" eyes like pilot lights, guttering and spent, as the realities of their world continue on around them. Science is a long steady progression into the future. What may seem a sudden event often isn't felt for years, even centuries, to come. In the times following the Second Battle of Hoover Dam, however, Old World Blues took on a new meaning. Where once it was viewed as a form of sadness, nostalgia, it became an expression describing the potential for the future. It can be easy to see Science as evil, technology unchecked as the source of all ills, all misfortunes. With the Courier at the helm, Science became a beacon for the future. There was Old World Blues, and New World Hope. And hope ruled the day at Big MT.

...Woah.
I was unprepared for the amount of deepness in that comment.
I'm actually writing a FOE fic with the Courier, though I honestly haven't had much thought planned for the endgame of it. All this that you typed hear... it's inspiring. Thank you.

... I think if I make a passing reference to Pinkie Pie, that'd be more than enough of a reference to you. But hey, if you like just give me a description of him/her. Here's my fic so far: [link]
