I’ve never done a fic rec before, so I’m sorry if it gets a bit weird XD. But these are possibly my most favourite fics of all time in the fandom, I’ve come back to read them multiple times and definitely will come back to them more and more in the future. I hope you guys will enjoy them as well and please support all these magnificent writers!!!
Note: Some of these have mature content. You have been warned.
Additional Tags: Bickering, Sass, sassyness, the old dads taking a break, sort of anyways…, like i said before, i don’t know how to tag, Feels, working on your undead relationship, Nudity, because hey, i just wrote 20k words of them without sexy times so you know, It’s Time, if you want to know what happens, just look at the rating I mean come on! It’s mature for a reason., Language, Foul Language
Summary: Jack and Gabe take the closest thing they can to a vacation. (Sort of)
(Nei’s note: Delicious smut, beautiful, emotional-packed fic surrounding two old men’s stubbornness.Gabriel’s character is wonderfully well-written and Jack’s reactions are absolutely on point. The author is an absolute fucking gift. MUST READ.)
Additional Tags: Slight mention of dubious consent
Summary: Or the one where Jack Morrison understands but doesn’t speak Spanish and Gabriel Reyes would have liked to know about this beforehand.
(Nei’s note: You haven’t read this absolute piece of joy? THEN GO READ IT RIGHT NOW!!! Beautifully fluffy, guarantee to stuff you into a cocoon of happiness. Author is also an absolute gift. Better yet, GO READ THE WHOLE SERIES RIGHT HERE!!!)
Additional Tags: Fine Dining, Food, Cooking, Alcohol, relationships, I don’t even know how this happened. Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Alternate Universe - Restaurant, why yes gabe you ARE gay for Jack Morrison
Summary: Gabriel Reyes and Jack Morrison have been working to revamp the menu at Overwatch, but their executive Chef just threw them both a major curveball. (Note: Several characters are mentioned in passing but do not have speaking roles.)
(Nei’s note: Interesting details of the culinary world, beautiful depiction of Gabe being a longing, stubborn idiot. A pinch of tension, a dash of brilliant character interaction. Simply delicious.)
Summary: The vigilante known as Soldier: 76 sends messages to a number he thinks belongs to a dead man, and it does, technically, except Reaper reads them, every last one, and he can only stay a ghost for so long.
(Nei’s note: The feeling of angst and bitter-sweetness in this fic won’t leave you reeling, but definitely form a sad knot in your chest. Gabriel is depicted so wonderfully in here, and you can keenly feel his warring emotions. Absolutely beautiful read.)
Summary: Gabriel wasn’t usually this talkative, Jack must’ve looked more like shit than he thought. Was it failure to not mask this pain? Either way it was getting late enough that acting like this didn’t faze him was more trouble than it seemed. Maybe another effect Gabe had on him.
(Nei’s note: A great take on Jack and Gabriel’s time during SEP. The support seen in Gabriel and Jack’s line of thoughts are wonderfully written.)
Summary: Jack’s never been fond of trains.
(Nei’s note: Soft, longing feelings that make your heart ache a little for them. The emotions running in this fic flow fluidly, gentle and sad. Recommended if you’re looking for a quick fix of angst.)
Summary: Do you ever wonder how Reyes got that scar on his lip? After a good night, Gabriel scares the shit out of Jack and busts his lip in the bed of his truck. Stupidly having no medical supplies or training, Jack has to make a four AM detour to the hospital.
(Nei’s note: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah…The cuteness runs strong with this one! Two dorks of men being in love, clumsy and endearing. Bringing ALL the good feels yo!)
