Bonds of Time Come Apart (We've Been Awoken at the End) Head Paladin Hardin asks for Arcade's help in treating a prisoner who'd gotten a little... banged up during interrogation.

1 How Fragile The Axis Upon Which Everything Tilts Upon seeing a dead man in Tesla power armor, Veronica tells her friends about the Enclave and how horrible it was. Arcade looks disturbed, especially when she laments that she didn't get to kill the Enclave soldier herself, but she's sure he'll get over it. Then in Novac she overhears him talking with an old woman and everything she thought she knew about him is turned on its head.

No One is More Damaged by Reality Shortly after Boone had started traveling with the Courier, she introduced him to Arcade Gannon. Boone liked him, not that he'd ever admit it. It was obvious that something bad had happened to him before they'd met. Boone had come up with several theories, but it wasn't until the Courier dragged him to the Fort to talk with Caesar that he found out that the reality was much worse.

2 Our Golden Glow Used To Outshine All » The Courier loves to meet new people, and Arcade knows so many interesting ones! If only he weren't so resistant to the idea of her interacting with any of them. (Aka, the Courier meets the Enclave Remnants before she knows who they are.)

New Hands, Clasped in the Changes (Rules Compel You to Turn) Arcade's friends don't take issue so much with the fact that he's lying to them but rather that he's so very, very bad at it. (Aka, why it was so easy for Veronica and Boone to figure out Arcade was Enclave.) Works as a prequel to "If You Knew All That I'd Done (The Words That Shone Are All But Gone)" but both easily stand alone.

If You Knew All That I'd Done (The Words That Shone Are All But Gone) Arcade is asked to translate an intercepted message from Caesar.

There's Never Three Times The Master doesn't understand human concepts of gender, let alone those of the 20th century, so his attempt to sow discord amongst the UNIT team using sexism fails miserably. But at least the Doctor understands. And he gets to use his Inflatable Chair of Death again, so that's a plus! Also on Ao3 and Teaspoon. (CW for misgendering, bc the master is confused)

1 A Thousand Radiations (And He Knows Well Every Quiver Of Each) "I am quite sure that a man of your intelligence will see that there can be but one outcome to this affair." For once, Moriarty was wrong. Then again, even he couldn't have predicted being summoned by one of Shakespeare's creations into a universe in which his life was a fictitious tale. Now that he's back, Holmes may be surprised by the direction their confrontation will take.

2A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. (Hey ff, ao3 lets me put in the full title) In which Merlin performs magic in front of a wide audience and nobody in attendance can believe their eyes.
