New Vegas: Sheason's Story by Sheason is a Fallout fanfic. A retelling/novelization of Fallout: New Vegas as told by a Courier named Sheason Fisher who starts out on a tale of revenge, justice, and independence.
What starts out as a pretty straightforward adaptation of the New Vegas story - going so far as to use as much of the in-game dialogue as possible - very quickly turned into something far more original and interesting. Despite the many added quirks and personal touches (such as the Courier driving a car, as a reference to the Highwayman from Fallout 2 and later on a grappling hook a la Batman), it never feels truly out of place for the setting as the author goes out of his way to make more than just a few references to previous Fallout games. In the end it makes for a brilliant story for both fans of Fallout: New Vegas and fans of stories that take place After the End. And it all starts with the classic lines, "War... War never changes."
- Adaptation Expansion: Thanks to it's nature as a written work lot of things seen in the game are given this. Like the Courier himself and several others. Including the map itself which is represented as being more accurate to the real world as oppose to the condensed version needed to be done with the game.
- Adapted Out: The Great Khans thanks to them getting their shit ruined by a mysterious attacker.
- Author Appeal: The author's love for cars makes its way into the story quite a few times. Sheason drive and maintains his own car in the Mojave. He even runs into the Boomers who offer to modify said car with plenty of details covering the more technical side.
- Big Damn Heroes: Sheason's companions pull one of these to rescue Sheason from the Legion Fort. Even Cass calls out the trope by name.
- Book-Ends: Sheason receives his Pip Boy shorty after the story starts and ends just shortly after he loses it.
- Boom, Headshot!: Like the game, this story starts off with Sheason being shot in the head. TWICE. Also like in game, he gets better.
- Cyborg: During the events of Old World Blues, Sheason becomes one of these straight off the bat. Including a mechanical heart, spine, and even a full arm replacement after he loses it fighting the denizens of The Big Empty.
- Door Stopper: This story is a big one. With 174 chapters in total and just 5000 words shy of one million, this story is a beast.
- Shout-Out: Multiple ones. Not just to past Fallout games, but, Team Fortress 2, Wolfenstein The New Order,Doom, and much more.
