    THEORIES! Let's hear them.
    Around 2010 I wrote a short story about my character following the events of F3 (Forgive me, I was a kid back then). Cant remember where it went. But to summarize- "Main character helps clear out Vault 87 of Super Mutants and killing off any attempted organized leadership they couldve had. Goes through more extensive measures to help introduce Vault 101 to the Wasteland around 2278 and eventually they settle around Megaton and Springvale with Vault 101 being seen as a East Coast counterpart to Vault City, eventually TLW marries Amata and starts their family and helps the community as a teacher. With the help of Canterbury Commons and Rivet City, they form a large trade organization and alliance that had better protection with Lyons Pride functioning as a seemingly military junta of a government to take the first steps to keep the independent communities of the Capital Wasteland connected and lay root for a new government"

    Ultimately undid by Fallout 4.

    Huh, that actually sounds a lot more optimistic than what Bethesda initially implied in Fallout 4, in regards to what happened to The Lone Wanderer. What I mean by that, is take a look at Arthur Maxson's BOS! Those who were deemed loyal to Elder Owyn Lyons & were a part of his regime, were taken out. And this is due to the fact that the Outcasts rejoined them once Lyons was gone! Now what happened to The Lone Wanderer well, I guess other than being exiled by The BOS, Maxson's BOS, they probably wandered off some place else, somewhere far away from the Capital Wasteland, a place that once called home.

    I figured TLW was at least owed some kind of decent ending after trials and massive tribulations at just 19. Albeit he suffered quite a bit before then. Maybe after a few years he'd travel quite a bit. I honestly wish Obsidian wrote the story for Fallout 3 and made things better. i even wrote a post story for my courier

    My own personal headcanon- He went the House route, settled in Novac with his wife had two great kids and continued to serve as a diplomat for a very long time. Eventually he played a part with colony ships leaving earth to explore.....the Outer Worlds
