Time was around midnight. I accidentally looked out of window and noticed something strange, sort of illusion of reflection. Thinking that it might be a greasy window surface I opened it. In two minutes I was outside with a tripod and a loaded camera almost running in awe towards one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen.

Giant Waterspout Off Florida Coast

The above picture is one of the best caught images of a waterspout, a type of tornado that occurs over water. Waterspouts are spinning columns of rising moist air that typically form over warm water. They can be as dangerous as tornadoes, with some featuring wind speeds of over 200 kilometers per hour. Some waterspouts are relatively transparent and only initially visible when an unusual pattern is spotted on the water’s surface.This waterspout was spotted near Tampa Bay, Florida. The area of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida is arguably the most active in the world for the occurrence of waterspouts, with hundreds forming each year. Some people believe large waterspouts are the cause of the unusual disappearances and disasters suffered by planes and ships in the Bermuda Triangle.

Well, better later than never. I wanted to do something for the meihem week, but I had no time, so there is it now. I’ve been ruminating about an AU for them, although it had ended getting out of my hands and becoming somewhat an open All-characters Au world… thing. xD (There will be meihem at some point, but it’s not a main point in the plot). It`s called for now: Solarwatch.


Basically, Mei is a field climatologist, specialized in dangerous atmospheric phenomena, who works for Overwatch industries. Overwatch is a big, wealthy company, specialiced in innovation in a lot of fields. Mei`s reseach is funded by the company. (funilly enough, I didn’t know the movie Twister existed until I explained this idea to a friend XD).

Which is what brings her to a lanky small town in the middle of nowhere, surrounded mostly by old farms. Junkrat and Roadhog live there, taking care of their own business (?). The plot somehow start during one of the tornado alerts. While they are heading to their bunker, Junkrat takes his time admiring the destruction, which allows him to see a stranger (Mei) way too close to the danger zone. They end up having to fetch her into the bunker with them. Of course the van and all the equipment gets blown up and Mei gets stuck with the two farmers until the damage is fixed enough in the town for her to comunicate with overwatch.

The designs and ideas aren’t still 100% finished, so there can be some changes.

Although this has a plot, though, I’m not doing a full comic, but vignettes, sketchworks and some scattered illustrations. So it’s not going to be in chronological order or have an schedule.

It has been a long time since I uploaded anything to Tumblr, and well, I want to apologize for that. I will try to force myself to upload more stuff. Thanks everyone for the attention!.

Sorry if in the Au, or in the descriptions, there is some English mistakes. it’s not my Mother language. Thanks to @underloks for the help in English.

Wind Divination Types

Aeromancy-  the art of foretelling the future by the observation of atmospheric, air or sky phenomena, going beyond the range of weather prognostications, concentrating in such things as wind currents, cloud shape and formation, comets and falling stars, spectral formations, and other phenomena which are not normally seen or visible in the heavens. 

Austromancy- divination by observing the wind; Anemoscopy is austromancy in which the wind direction and intensity is interpreted.

Capnomancy- Divination by smoke (More related to pyromancy but can be used with wind divination as well.)

Ceraunoscopy- divination by the interpretation of thunder and lightning.

Chaomancy- divination by aerial visions, is nearly synonymous with aeromancy, but most often refers to nephomancy or cometomancy, divination by the appearance of comet tails.

Meteormancy- divination by meteors and shooting stars.

Nephomancy- divination by the interpretation of the movement of clouds.
