Maybe Will isn't short for William, it's short for Willow and Will thinks it's funny that Nico calls him William so he doesn't say anything (this is more of a starter than a Headcanon but y'know)

oh my god wait i love this because
• nico is always yelling “william” every three seconds in his little italian accent
• in my head due to his accent he pronouces it “willie-um”
• “william! bring me those kettle cooked chips!” “william! why is it so warm in here?” “william! what is the movie with the lion who is a king?” to which will replies “uh… the lion king?” “oh yes, that one! i love that movie” or wills favorite “OH MY GODS WILLIAM THERES IS A SPIDER THE SIZE OF MY FACE IN HERE!” & will goes to see & finds a baby tiny spider
• & will truly finds its hilarious & adorable & so totally nico so he doesn’t really say anything about his real name
• so imagine nicos surprise when he’s looking through wills wallet for a dairy queen coupon that will promised was in there & he finds wills license
• in big bold letters he reads “WILLOW SOLACE”
• he kinda just chills in surprise for a minute or two & then loses his shit
• “william! i mean uh- willow? what is the meaning of this? why does it say your name is a tree? i am not understanding!”
• will laughs & shakes his head, “my mom is eccentric, you know this, she’s a country singer. so what better name for her baby boy then a tree?”
• nico ponders for a moment & kind of nods his head
• “i will still be calling you william because you are my william.”
• “of course, i wouldn’t want it any other way”
• & then they get all soft & smile at each other & then nico asks where the gosh danged coupon is because doesn’t william know he’s dying of craving for ice cream??

There were a lot of difficulties about being a sorcerer in a city that hated sorcerers. Camelot’s Anti-Sorcery Act had been in place for decades, and despite many local cities and districts opening up their policies on magic use and magic users, Camelot was entrenched in old beliefs.

Despite it all, Merlin loved living in Camelot. It sounded contradictory, and he supposed it was. He loved the people around him. He had a group of friends who loved him and cared about him, although only one person in all of Camelot knew he had magic. Lance had found out by accident (Merlin had had a bad head-cold. He sneezed and suddenly there were bubbles all over his apartment. Luckily, despite the fact that Lance had grown up in Camelot, he was not as conservative as the local government.)

The other contradictory thing about Camelot was Arthur Pendragon. Son of Camelot’s leading anti-magic politician, an officer in Camelot’s police force, and an all around Camelot born-and-raised man, Arthur was exactly the kind of person Merlin should have strayed away from. And yet.

And yet Merlin was head over heels for the man. Arthur was his best friend. He was everything to Merlin. Sometimes it scared him just how much Arthur meant to him.

But Merlin had to keep one of the biggest secrets of his life from Arthur. When they had first met, Merlin  had heard Arthur talk about magic. He had said the usual things about sorcerers: they were misguided people and magic would eventually corrupt them. That had been years ago and Merlin knew Arthur’s ideas on magic had shifted for the better, but he had never dared ask, lest he raise suspicion. If Arthur knew about Merlin’s magic, it would have been one thing if he was just anyone. But Arthur wasn’t just anyone. He was a policeman and was obligated to arrest Merlin on site if he had any evidence of magic. Merlin wouldn’t risk putting Arthur in a position which would compromise his entire career.

Despite all these contradictory facts about living in Camelot, Merlin had thought he had everything under control. But Murphy’s law was a powerful force.

The Introvert, the Extroverts, and the In-Between

HERE IT IS. I SAID I WOULD START POSTING FIC HERE AND I’M GONNA. I hope you all enjoy! There will be more because I am a weenie and the boys wont shut up.

Characters: Gabriel Reyes, Jack Morrison, with side appearances from Ana, Reinhardt, and Torbjorn.
Rated: T+ because Reyes has a sailor’s mouth.
Words: 2282

Summary: Gabriel Reyes is annoyed and irritated by his teammates constantly cheery and draining dispositions. Some Reaper76 fluff ensues, with a lot of grumpy Reyes. This is mostly a self-indulgent, pre-canon, Omnic Crisis fluffy one-shot.

If there was anything more annoying than fucking extroverts, Gabriel Reyes didn’t know what it was.

Not that this was surprising for a man of his character. He wasn’t what you would call a “people person.” He had perfected his human-repellant scowl years ago and it had proven effective for keeping anyone too nosy off his back. It helped him command respect, helped keep teammates at an arm’s length. It kept away small talk and allowed him to keep an eye on everyone all at once.

But damn those fucking irritating energetic extroverts.

Since joining Overwatch, he couldn’t help but notice the place was crawling with them. Angela, Torbjorn, Reinhardt, Lena… all of them were people magnets. They attracted attention, they soaked up the crowds and praise, they fell in love with the idea of what Overwatch was instead of focusing on the grim reality of it actually is. It was a blissful existence, a happy one, an exuberant one.

And God if it didn’t piss him the hell off.
