guys I can’t imagine jesse’s cowboy shit would go down well once he joined up with Overwatch, you know? “You’re not a kid anymore” kinda shit, right (probs by Jack)? And shortly after he joins up he’s tryin to clean up his act and fit in and not fuck up the last opportunity he’s got to keep from wasting his life so he puts away the hat and the serape and the belt buckle and the spurs, wears combat boots and cargo pants and black shirts, thinks about cutting his hair.
And Gabe notices, of course, I mean everybody fuckin notices. Jack’s all weirdly gloaty about it, “about time he took this seriously,” and shit. And Gabe almost agrees but like, the kid’s so sad about it. He doesn’t talk to anyone, nothin above polite “how’re you”‘s and “yessir, nosir” in such a strangely non-southern accent that Gabe can barely register it as jesse’s. No southern-isms, no ruckus cackling, hell he even stops smoking. He just looks so damn sad. It’s painful to watch.
So Gabe starts makin a big deal out of calling Jesse ‘cowboy’. “Where’s my cowboy at?” “c’mere cowboy” “listen here you honky-tonky ass son of a bitch, if you ain’t gonna do what I tell you you can go sit on your goddamn spurs. you hear me cowboy!?”
And Jesse’s…honestly kinda pissed. Like, here he is, tryin to be this fuckin proper member of Overwatch, and here’s Reyes just openly mocking him AFTER he’s obviously trying to change like, what the fuck kinda shit is that? What more does he want? How can he be any less like himself? And one day it’s too goddamn much.
He goes into Reyes’ office unannounced and just starts shouting, “What the HELL is your problem with me!?” Goes off about all the ‘cowboy’ shit, about changing, about being ‘proper’, being ‘professional’, being ‘grown-up’. “What do you want from me!? Just what in the hell do you want!?”
“Go on, Gabriela, tell Tou-san your new word,” Jesse
encourages the second Hanzo walks in the door. Their daughter rushes up to
Hanzo and he crouches down to catch her.
“Howdy!” she greets.
“Why hello,” Hanzo replies.
“Howdy!” she says again, obviously pleased. McCree is too,
judging from his grin.
“Very well done, little one,” Hanzo congratulates her. They
were both enthusiastically supportive of their daughter but Hanzo was
determined to never let her think that her efforts were ever lacking. He was
never going to make her feel like he had growing up, desperate to prove his
worth in everything he did.
“Ain’t she something,” Jesse says, coming close to kiss his
husband. Between them, Gabriela continues to happily babble to herself, repeating
her new word over and over.
“I do hope you did something other than speak this single word to her today,” Hanzo comments
“Course I did, didn’t I, honeylamb?”
“Howdy!” Gabriela squeaks back. Jesse falters under Hanzo’s
“C’mon, Gabriela, you learnt another word today, didn’t’cha?”
“Howdy! Howdy, howdy, howdy,” she babbles again, reaching up
to poke at Hanzo’s piercings. Hanzo cannot help but throw his head back and
“Aww, babycakes, you’re making your Pa look real bad,” Jesse
whines, but he’s smiling too.
“If she ends up calling her dragon Howdy because that’s her favourite word now, it is entirely your
fault,” Hanzo warns.
I’ve been meaning to do this for a while because I’ve really been enjoying croik’s story! There were a bunch of scenes that really stuck with me, but upon rereading, I had to draw this from chapter 2. This is one of my fav TEW fics, I just wanted to show my support and say that I’m excited for more :)
So how Atlantis
Not with the Paladins but with Haggar and Zarkon.
Hear me out.
Zarkon learns of a Altean colony rumoured to of still exist after 10 years from the distraction of Altea hidden in the middle of a asteroid ocean that has long been impassable until now.
So Zarkon gathers a team together and personally accompanies them down to the planet surface, surprised to be greeted by a Altean woman Haggar that not only welcomes them but takes them back to the remains of their city.
There are few Alteans left, all knowing nothing of the war or the fall of Altea as they had been disconnected from their home planet.
Zarkon is shown around by Haggar and is taken around the ruined city he had planned to destroy, however the more he sees and the more time he spends with her, the less he wants to destroy the remaining Alteans.
Zarkon asks how they are still alive so Haggar takes him to a underwater temple.
Que Haggar and Zarkon “pretty girl I mean pretty good” scene.
This is where Zarkon learns of their Druid magic.
When they return another Galra tried to grab her demanding they kill them while they had the chance.
Zarkon has him killed, but when him and Haggar return they find the city burning.
The Alteans that survived are being rounded up and killed.
Zarkon goes on a rampage leaving only the Alteans alive.
He is badly hurt and is healed by Haggar who pledges allegiance to him and gives him the secret to an impossibly long life.
She and the surviving Alteans join him in space and become the druids.
Over time Zarkon develops feelings for Haggar and she feels the same.
He tries to ignore her, until in a battle she is injured and he admits his feelings.
The two can’t marry. But she does become the mother of his child and though Zarkon can’t make it official, all Galra know who the true queen of the Galra is.
I'm sad you finished the Bokuroo week, you draw them so rarely now and I just miss my boys so much
anon please don’t try to guilt trip me into drawing more bokuro that’s kinda very rude I realize no one really reads tags so I’m gonna just say it here again - as I mentioned before, this period is really damn busy for me because for whatever reason all my fandoms and ships have decided to hold their ship weeks all together in the span of 20 days and I’m a sucker for this kind of events which means I wanna participate in everything and end up being unable to put actual effort in everything else for a while
THAT SAID how productive I am with a specific ship depends a lot on how much they’re appearing in the main story (currently in the bokuros’ case it’s a very pretty round zero), how responsive/respectful the fandom is when I do post about them (the bokuro fandom is amazing!!! Everyone around it that still keeps on trying to make it about other ships and turn my art into something it’s not supposed to be, not so much) and how much content for said ship I can consume through the fandom/how easily accessible it is (there’s very little content for bokuro in general and try and look for stuff in the tags it’s all about other ships/ot3s or ot4s/unrequited or past-relationship/tagged-but-only-as-brotp)
I really, really, really love that ship a whole damn lot still, trust me, but when I have so little inspiration coming from anything that could give it to me and at the same time I got other ships making me super creative, I’m naturally bound to produce less for it. I’m not abandoning it, I’m just asking you to be patient when my creativity doesn’t happen to be focused on them for a while
You wouldn't have any headcanons about Clarisse and Chris Rodriguez, would you?
Thanks for sending an ask!!! I’m always happy to take requests, so I wrote some headcanons for you!! :) I hope you like them!
Clarisse is very overprotective of Chris
And by that I mean that if anyone mentions the fact that Chris was on Kronos’s side in a way that blames him, or brings it up against him, she will not be happy
Chris feels constantly guilty for the fact he went over to Luke’s side initially, and he’s told Clarisse that
Everyone’s quite surprised by their relationship? Like constantly?
When they first start going out everyone makes bets on how long they’re going to last
Everyone loses, because no one thought they’d be going so strong after all this time
They go to Phoenix together for university, and Clarisse hides it, but she’s super, super excited
She finally gets the chance to be normal and be with her boyfriend and it’s everything she wasn’t sure she’d get
Needless to say, Chris balances her in any social situation
He makes sure she’s not too aggressive, but she also makes sure he doesn’t remain too shy, because a lot of the time Chris isn’t great at introducing himself to new people
One of the things that surprises people the most is how unfazed Chris is whenever Clarisse gets angry or basically starts acting like a typical Ares kid, loud and brash
Chris doesn’t even react, but he’s also a match for Clarisse (that’s one of the reasons they work so well together)
Clarisse doesn’t like to share her insecurities, so she doesn’t tell anyone she hates the big house, hates going there now
It all stems from that time when Chris was insane, and she had to look after him in there… going to that room brings it all back
Chris never says anything, but he notices, and he’ll try and make sure they avoid the big house as much as possible
Every year, in the summer, comes the anniversary of Silena’s death. Clarisse always gets super moody and temperamental at these times, trying to deal with her emotions, and it’s only Chris who can calm her down
They have a spot in the woods where they kissed for the first time, some time after Dionysus cured Chris of his madness
It becomes their favourite spot, and the best thing about it is that no one knows about it (or at least, that’s what they think. Don’t tell them that one time Percy Jackson saw them holding hands there.)
Chris wants to become a better fighter, and Clarisse agrees to teach him
Chris actually becomes pretty good
Every so often when they’re placed on opposite teams for capture the flag, things become intense
They both want to win, and so they’ll try their hardest, just because, why not?
Clarisse usually comes out on top due to the fact that she’s got the might of the Ares cabin behind her
But one time Chris spends ages planning the ultimate strategy (he had Annabeth’s help, but don’t tell anyone), and trains for weeks
Sure enough, he wins, and he personally disarms her
He winks at her
“Don’t take it too personally,” he says. “I learnt from the best”
That’s the moment Clarisse realises how much she loves this idiot
