• Not many would assume that McCree was a great father, but they were wrong. He loved you with all his heart, and he would do anything to protect you.

• Because of his past, the cowboy would do anything he could to make sure you stay on the right path.

• When you end up in danger, McCree was quick to go after whoever was attacking you. You’re his kid, and he won’t let anyone take you away from him.

• He was the most irrational, not letting the rest of the team follow after him. He doesn’t want to waste a second if your life was in trouble.

Soldier: 76

• Out of everyone, Soldier: 76 was who everyone saw with children. Well, when he was Jack, they saw him having the cliché American family.

• Soldier: 76 was a strict father, but he had a compassionate heart when it came to caring about you. You were his family, and he refused to let anything change that.

• The moment he heard that you were in danger, he took initiative, gathering the agents he knew he trusted to take care of you.

• They’d move quickly and without noise, not wanting to alert whoever it was hurting you. They’d take out the enemies without a problem, eliminating the danger.


• After what happened to Genji, Hanzo was determined to start over and validate himself as a good person. When you were born, he realized he was being given his chance.

• It won’t only be Hanzo who was furious the moment they learned of the danger surrounding you. Genji would follow alongside his brother when they go after whoever it was putting you in danger.

• Hanzo and Genji went alone, not wanting to risk alerting anyone by having more people involved. They made sure you were safe with someone they trust (probably Zenyatta).

• Hanzo would make sure you were safe every second of the day, even if his own life was put in danger.


• Reaper wouldn’t be what most considered an ideal parent, but he cared for you more than anyone could imagine.

• He’d be the type of parent to constantly monitor his child, and he wasn’t very affectionate.

• It doesn’t take long for him to figure out that you’re in danger, and it takes even less time to kill them.

• He wanted you to be safe at all times, and he knew his affiliation with such a powerful organization would hinder that.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
