“What the fuck, man?”
“Alright, that’s fair.”
“Not again…”
“Do you want this back, or can I keep it?”
“I live free of shame.”
“Worst assassination ever.”
“I’ll still shame you.”
“That’s kinky.”
“Infamy! Infamy! They’ve all got it in for me!”
“I came out to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.”
“Haven’t been penetrated this deep since ‘06.”
“Et tu, [Name]?”
“Yeah, well, jokes on you! I’m keeping this! That’s right. A free sword for me.”
“Harder, daddy.”
“I’m not a tyrant.”
“Jokes on you, getting stabbed is my kink.”
“Careful, don’t lose your arm in there.”
“Curse your sudden, but inevitable betrayal!”
“For fuck’s sake, this was my favorite shirt!”
“At least buy me dinner first!”
“At least stab me in the back! God, you’re a fucking amateur.”
“Why though?”
“The last guy that stabbed me became my wife/husband.”
“I didn’t agree to this.”
“No, no, no! You did it all wrong. You’re supposed to stab my heart, not my ass!”
“God, I didn’t think I’d lose my first time this way…" 
“Sic semper tyrannis?”
"Maybe use something else than a plastic knife next time.”

anonymous asked:

Hey! Just wanted to say that I've just recently discovered your ao3 and I'm in love <3 I adore how you write Hanzo and his interactions. Thank you so much for sharing your stories :D And since I'm sending you this message, might as well give you a prompt hahaha. Prompt: a game of "never have I ever" goes horribly wrong. Thanks again for writing stuff! You rock!

Congratulations, anon, you found my weakness. I can’t resist kind words. Here’s your prompt. (Also, thank you. That ask made my day. <3)

D.Va comes up with the idea, deep in the throes of withdrawal syndrome resulting from the Watchpoint’s internet outage, and the game starts innocent enough.

“I’ve never played this game before,” says Mei nervously, hiding behind her murloc mug like a shield. “I don’t really know what to do.”

“It’s super easy.” D.Va’s eyes already gleam with competitive passion McCree’s tempted to describe as unholy. “You think of something the others must have done that you’ve never done yourself, and you say it, beginning with ‘never have I ever’. Like, ‘never have I ever worn cowboy boots.’”

“Not your turn, missy,” drawls McCree.

“Just an example! Everyone who’s done it, drinks. When we run out of shots, whoever has the least glasses wins. So you want to find something that everyone has done, to make as many people drink as possible.”

Mei lowers her mug and chews her lip briefly. “Okay. Never have I ever… smoked a cigarette.”

Lúcio whistles. “Nice start.”

Everyone except Mei takes a tiny shot from the circular tray on the table. McCree downs his and clears his throat. “Never have I ever,” he says slowly, weighing his options, “gotten a degree.”

Only Morrison doesn’t reach for a glass. McCree watches the Shimadas knock their shots back in unison and wonders what kind of degrees they might’ve gotten. A double major in murder and extortion?

“At this rate, I’ll be treating everyone for alcohol poisoning before the turn ends,” Mercy comments drily.

“Better get prepared, then, because I’ve got another good one,” says Fareeha happily. McCree recognizes that expression: it’s her ‘I’m about to prank someone’ face. “Never have I ever slept with a man.”

This time there’s a collective groan around the table, as everyone but Morrison takes another one. McCree freezes briefly with the glass halfway to his mouth, watching Hanzo drink; not like he didn’t have his suspicions, he might’ve caught an appreciative glance or two that Hanzo cast at the male part of the roster over the last months, and their banter could be interpreted as flirting — it certainly is on McCree’s part — but there’s a difference between suspecting and hoping and knowing for sure…

…and speaking of knowing: McCree catches Morrison’s eye and raises his eyebrows meaningfully, absolutely prepared to call him out if he has to. Morrison goes red in the face, mumbles something about biting hands that feed and drinks, and Fareeha starts laughing.

“Well, that escalated quickly,” says Lúcio cheerfully. “Just FYI, I think you’ve set an impossible standard. Never have I ever stabbed anyone.”

“That’s not a bad one either.” McCree nods with appreciation and adds another glass to his growing collection. Shimadas drink, obviously, and so does Morrison, but there’s a moment of stunned silence when Mercy picks up a glass and drains it with a wince.

It takes her a moment to notice the mute stares from around the table. “What?” she says defensively. “I was attacked and I had a scalpel.”

The look Genji gives her is so obviously starry-eyed that McCree nearly feels bad for the man. “Never have I ever,” says Genji, still gazing dreamily at Mercy, “shot anyone.”

“I don’t like the direction this game is takin’,” McCree complains good-naturedly. “You tryin’ to make me pass out?”

Hanzo outright grins into his glass. “Never have I ever caused an explosion,” he declares loudly, looking right at McCree.

McCree fails to contain a grin of his own. “Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal,” he mutters and throws back another shot. He’ll have to start a second stack of glasses at this rate.

“Oh come on, I haven’t even finished the previous one,” grumbles D.Va and takes two shots in quick succession, grimacing. “You all skipped sex and went straight for murder. What is wrong with you? You’re supposed to come up with something funny, or at least interesting, and not all the ways to kill people. Never have I ever been in love.”

Fareeha, Genji and Mercy grab their glasses immediately. Mei’s expressive face falls before she takes hers. Morrison hesitates for a long while before picking one up with a quiet sigh, and McCree barely notices the warning look Mercy shoots D.Va, because he’s staring at the glasses, unsure.

He’s honestly got no idea if he should drink or not. It’s just a bit of a crush, after all, not the big dramatic thing he’s kinda always thought love should be. He’s not losing sleep over Hanzo or anything, on the contrary, he’s started sleeping much better recently, and Hanzo is hot, sure, and he’s surprisingly great company and a good partner to work with, but he’s also an unrepentant asshole and a mean sonofabitch sometimes —

In his peripheral vision, Hanzo’s hand twitches, as if he wanted to reach out and thought better of it, balls into a fist, then shoots out to pick up a glass. The fact that it makes McCree’s heart go faster probably means that he should drink after all, goddammit.

“It’s your turn, Jack,” says Mercy gently. McCree grabs the shot and downs it. No point overthinking a stupid game.

Morrison glares at his glass like it offended him, then puts it down with a loud clack. “I think I’m too old for this,” he says. “Have fun.”

In the silence, the closing door sounds like a gunshot.

“Yikes,” whispers Lúcio.

“I think murder worked better,” says Mercy wryly. “Never have I ever made someone angrily leave the room.”
