Unusual Format Winner

It was really fucking hard to choose the winner since all the submissions were so good. But, it has to be done. So, after much deliberation, I’ve chosen Arin.exe by @okgrumps. It was the one that evoked the most emotion, as well as a very creative format choice. I’ll be posting a rec to my boi Alex very soon, and dude you get a 1k fic of your choice from me. Expect me to come a lurkin in your inbox

Thank you @nicole-grump @vziii @shipgrumps-equals-hashtag-boner @thewordzombie for entering. All your fics were fucking amazing and I’m very impressed by the formats you guys came up with. Thanks so much for joining this experiment!

This is what happens when you go into competitive Overwatch with a cheerful attitude and high hopes. I spent this whole game telling our team WE GOT THIS WE CAN WIN LETS KICK SOME ASS. Zero toxicity, zero anger nothing but love and good vibes. Not only did we win that game beautifully but the mercy on our team sent us this message afterwards. It filled my heart with so much happiness. A good attitude will get you far 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

The people for Tony Stark?

Okay, I was talking with my sister about how awesome it would be if in the wake of Civil War, that the people/public in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, EVERYWHERE! Just showed a subtle but strong solidarity for Tony Stark/Iron Man using what Tony is super into. Technology.
Like, picture this:
Hashtags; Tony is trending for MONTHS.
“I stand for the man that stands with me👏🏽 #IStandWithTonyStark #CaptainAmericaWho?”
“#IronMan with a #ironwill for the people and what’s right!”

People view the footage of the airport battle from the grainy cameras posted all over like crazy because someone uploaded it to YouTube. It’s not the best but you can see how team cap just didn’t pull any punches and how Tony had tried to talk despite not hearing what he’s saying. He looks broke , trying to hold everything together.
People lose their minds when they see Cap’s team charge first and when Rhodes falls from the sky and Tony dives after him.
The comments light up and bbbuuuuurrrrrnnn team cap.
“lmao what a fucking joke. tony is trying to talk to him and do you see this guys body language? he’s not hearing anything. Dude wouldn’t even listen to a team member let alone 117 countries”
“LOOK AT THEM, THEY LET THE HYDRA WITCH BITCH ON THEIR TEAM IN NOTHING FLAT BUT GOD FORBID THEY LISTEN TO IRON MAN”
“Yooo, legit they just kept flying after seeing War Machine go down like that? I saw Falcon turn around but I don’t care man, you’ve LIVED and FOUGHT with this dude and he’s obviously seriously hurt and you just keep flying away in the jet you stole??? Cowards. Pathetic.”
“They really look like they’re trying to kill the real heroes. Fuck I’m glad we have Iron Man and Co. with us”

People organize a day online; through tumblr, twitter, insta, Facebook, any way to get the news out that you wear red on this day and you just subtly grab a pen and draw a circle in your palm for a repulsor just like Iron Man’s. And everything blows up that way. News networks talk about it and talk show hosts, the paper has articles on how the public is showing an unimaginable support for Iron Man and the rest of his team that stayed and fought for them and continue to fight for them during the revision of the Accords.

And I want it to be on the news so much that team cap has to watch it and has to know how much everyone loves Tony and what he’s doing and how he went about it. And how he is an actual hero who did his best and how much the public believe and appreciate him.

“You’ll be alright, no one can hurt you now. Come morning light, you and I’ll be safe and sound.” 

Ya’ll asked for a the backstory for the Sun/Moon Spirit AU and ya’ll gonna regret asking for it tbh. 

  • During the ancient times, there existed two of the most prominent tribes on land; the Sun Tribe and the Moon Tribe. 
  • Adrien and Mari were the respective gods of their respective tribes. They were fairly young spirits at this time. Spirits don’t age after 21. 
  • Both tribes co-existed peacefully until a war broke out over land and authority. The Sun Tribe insisted on ruling over the moon tribe, believing they were superior. 
  • The Moon Tribe, of course, fought back and they fought back harshly. To the point where Adrien displayed himself to the humans to reason out. Mari tried to do the same. 
  • In the time of absolute chaos and anger, common sense flew out the window and the war continued. 
  • Mari had been attacked and fought the Sun Tribe and Adrien had fought the Moon Tribe. 
  • Due to the tribes being connected to Adrien and Mari, their own emotions were inflicted towards their gods. Mari was forced to ‘hate’ Adrien and vice versa.
  • Adrien and Mari fought at the peak of the war, a fight completely out of their will as spirits. At the time, they were allowed to see each other but never did. This was their first physical meeting.
  • It’s said that the Earth was practically shook from the fight; thunderstorms, hail, tornados, near floods, earthquakes, hurricanes and more, it was all present during the fight that lasted 3 days.
  • Adrien and Mari’s role as the strongest spirits and the eldest was a main factor for this.
  • The gods broke their fight apart, fearing that they were damaging the Earth too severely out of their own will and also because, seeing both, they feared that Adrien and Mari could become entities stronger than even them. 
  • They banished the Sun and Moon Tribes. 
  • And erased a whole year’s worth of Adrien and Mari’s memory. 
  • They banned Mari and Adrien from ever seeing each other apart from the eclipses, fearing that if they saw each other too often, they would begin to remember the erased memories and begin to feel the inflicted emotions of the tribes back then, leading to another fight out of their will. 
  • Adrien and Mari both believe their injuries, bruises and cuts all over their bodies were from a fight against someone a long time ago, though when asked, neither seem to remember. 
  • Adrien has cuts everywhere around his back, including a massive cut right on his tattoo. It’s healed and had begun to fade over the decades.
  • Mari has cuts down her leg everywhere from fights that’s hidden under her long skirt. 
  • Unhealthy reccomendation; listening to ‘Safe and Sound’ by Taylor Swift and the The Civil Wars whilst thinking of this and even worse, when drawing it.
