• Mei:(Holds up two fingers on each hand) Satya, you and I have had sex with the same man. Therefore...(Locks the fingers in a scissoring position) We are coochie cousins. And where I come from, that’s stronger than family.
  • Symmetra:That’s ridiculous.
  • Mei:Oh, is it ridiculous, ladies?

Okay but can we talk about how SOUL CRUSHING some of the Overwatch character’s backstories are?

Like one was brutally killed by his brother and turned into a cyborg, probably not entirely under his own will, then struggles to come to terms with his new body?

Then there’s the brother who thought for years he killed his own brother, honored him yearly out of guilt, shame, and regret, then whoops surprise lil’ bro is alive and now a green cyborg ninja dude.

One girl got RIPPED FROM FUCKING TIME and now has to live with a machine strapped to her otherwise she’ll literally disappear from existence.

Then a woman who was (probably) happily married and working with the Overwatch crew gets kidnapped, brainwashed, goes back and kills her husband, disappears Winter Soldier style, comes back as a mean purple killing machine, and works for the organization that hand a hand in the downfall of her previous home? If she ever manages to snap out of it she’ll LITERALLY lose her fucking mind.

Don’t get me STARTED on the cowboy, holy hell, this kid was roped into a big-bad gang probably before he learned how to shave, probably doing all sorts of illegal stuff cause that’s what Deadlock DID, then gets a second chance at 17 (still a youngen) with a another group that ended up doing MORE illegal shit on an INTERNATIONAL level, left there because he literally could-not sacrifice his morals that much, and now is wanted because of who he used to be affiliated with and because he’s a Bounty Hunter who doles out mad justice.

ALSO LIKE JUNKRAT APPARENTLY IS THE EQUILIVANT OF THE HALF-LIFE BOYS FROM MAD MAX???? RADIATION MADE HIM GO FUCKING NUTS? AND HE APPARENTLY KNOWS SOME HARD-CORE DIRT ABOUT EITHER OVERWATCH OR TALON OR SOMETHING BIG AFTER PICKING THROUGH A FALLEN OMNIUM?

Then there’s Mei who was the sole survivor of a devastating polar storm that wiped out her base and her crew while researching the extreme climate change in Antarctica, and she survived cryostasis for flippin’ years because rescue didn’t come till they were like “Oh, wait, didn’t we have people out there? They okay? Shit.” Like HOW DO YOU LIVE WITH THAT?

Then holy crap we got the tragedy of Edgelord and Soldier Boi, who were best friends for YEARS and fought side by side in the biggest war humanity has ever seen, then Edgelord got snubbed and they placed Soldier Boi in the Strike Commander position even though Edgelord was the one who commanded Overwatch during the crisis and they won? They started drifting apart and shit started getting darker and darker in Edgelord’s new commission Blackwatch and finally they had a fight so big they BLEW UP A WHOLE FUCKING BASE. Everyone thinks they’re DEAD and technically Edgelord is but he isn’t? He’s constantly disintegrating and regenerating so he probably always feels agonizing pain, and Soldier Boi obviously hates himself immensely but wants to avenge Overwatch so he’s a freakin’ vigilante now? OkAy?!?!

Also IKEA man built a LOT of the omnics that ended up going nuts after they were all hacked by something or someone- Let’s face it it’s Sombra’s fault- so imagine watching the very things you helped create but warned people about how dangerous they could be end up being deadlier than you ever dared fear and your creations cut down cities but the millions? How do you live with yourself?!

Oh, and let’s not forget Angel Lady, who BROUGHT EDGELORD BACK FROM THE DEAD AND NOW HAS TO LIVE WITH THE FACT THAT SHE DID THAT TO HIM INSTEAD OF LETTING HIM REST IN PEACE, SHE WENT AND PULLED A FUCKING FRANKENSTEIN. MORALS? WHAT MORALS?!

Just. They all pain me so much they need hugs and blankets and a support group so fuckin’ bad.
