A pink faced girl with a white headscarf stumbled out of the line, put on the hat, which fell right down over her eyes, and sat down. ‘HUFFLEPUFF!’ shouted the hat. The table on the right cheered and clapped as Hannah went to sit down at the Hufflepuff table; the ghost of the Fat Friar waving merrily at her.
When Tina went to the docks to see off Newt – a man she’d begun to have feelings for, and who she thought she might never see again, or at least not for many years – she didn’t get dolled up in a fancy dress. She wore same type of shirt and jacket she’d normally wear to work. I think she might have been wearing some subtle lipstick, but other than that she’s got no makeup on. I can’t quite articulate why this makes me so happy but it does. Perhaps it’s because there’s something very strong about not feeling like you need to impress a man visually. Because despite her vulnerability, she knew on some level that she was dazzling enough to impress him regardless. Or maybe, it’s that she didn’t know that, but she was brave enough to risk it.
I’ve had an idea for a jack/gabe brawl based on the
junkenstein’s revenge formula: their wedding. It’d be set back in the height of
overwatch, and a section of watchpoint Gibraltar could be converted into the
setting. The wedding is interrupted by omnics/talon/talon led omnics, im not so
fussy on the particulars, the point is the beautiful day is interrupted and instead
of being engaged in matrimony Jack and Gabe are now engaged in combat. Ana was
probably their best (wo)man so she’s there. And the fourth member of the squad
could be Reinhardt or Torbjorn.
McCree would have been at the ceremony, but at the attack he
took off with Fareeha (and the other guests) to protect her. This means he can
also be the narrator with lines like:
“And with that explosion, the bastards ruined the cake me
and the boss had spent all week making.” “And that was when Talon, bless their
hearts, realised just why Jack Morrison was not a man to mess with.” And “If
only the wedding party has some sort of attack that could lock onto every enemy
in sight and shoot each one simultaneously. What a damn shame that dashing
Jesse McCree was off protecting the lovely young Ms Amari.”
Other interactions could include:
Jack using his disappointed and mad Dad Voice on those trying to ruin this day for him. The grooms constantly talking throughout the battle. “This
reminds me of the day I proposed to you” and Ana being annoyed that they couldn’t
just have one peaceful day and could
you two stop flirting you can get to
that later tonight once we finish this. Along with Gabriel “a whole base of
agents and I’m still the one cleaning
up this mess” Reyes annoyed whenever their suits he made himself get shot at. And
Reinhardt just wants his friends to have the greatest day ever and to move on
to the reception for feasting and merriment.
