Okay so what's your opinion on Bushmedicine (SniperxMedic)? If it's not your cup of tea, that's fine! I just like hearing opinions.
Look, you guys really want my honest opinions on these things? I can do that. (Keep in mind that these are just my own opinions. Not trying to ruin anyone’s fun or get into a debate.)
I’ve seen some cute art and stuff with these two, but based on their personalities and habits, I find the idea of a romantic relationship between them to be incredibly unlikely. And that’s assuming that Sniper is into dudes, which I don’t really have an opinion on.
They could definitely connect on a few levels; they take pride in their work, and they’d be easy drinking and hiking buddies. They’re also both fairly logical thinkers and could have some fun arguments. That’s about where it stops, though.
When it comes down to it, Sniper is a loner and a rule-follower who smells like piss half the time while Medic loves nothing more than breaking the rules and finding things out for himself. (And outside of lab work, he keeps pretty clean, so that Sniper B.O. would be a major turn-off.) They also just need totally different things from a potential partner.
Sniper needs someone who’s just as self-sufficient as he is, someone who will have his back, metaphorically if not literally. It’d be good if they were the type who could draw him out of his shell, but a disruptive personality will just drive him away in the long run. It’s just too stressful! Funnily enough, I could see him having chemistry with Spy, depending on how devoted Spy is to Scout’s mom. I’d also list Miss Pauling as a prospect, but I’m 95% sure she’s gay.
Medic needs someone who can keep up with him and cover his blind spots, like when he gets too wrapped up in a project and neglects his normal life and health. They don’t need to be as clever as he is, but both curiosity and listening skills are must-haves. There has to be openness and an exchange of ideas to keep him interested, with bonus points if they can establish a solid sense of security and comfort that Medic can fall into if he runs himself ragged. I figured he’d have something with both Demoman and Heavy in different periods, with neither working out in the long term for different reasons.
So that’s what I think!
