idk but what really gets me about overwatch is that its entire marketing tries to convince us that it’s this huge band of heroes who have come together to maintain world peace and achieve Great Things
while in fact that’s what they used to be and what you have now is a family consisting of an ape, two lesbians and a supercomputer having illegal dinner parties in a derelict government facility
the three former leaders of the organization are all presumed dead and pass their time not really disputing that claim considering two of them are currently holed up in a fucking necropolis, and the other one is a constantly decomposing emotional fog
like you’re supposed to imagine this grand force for Good, but then jesse mccree is getting shitfaced in a dingy bar in dorado while sombra sends sneaky update pics of him to reaper, who is currently too busy creeping on a family just because the guy’s flat butt reminded him of his ex husband
hanzo ‘midlife crisis’ shimada shoots dragons out of his nipple but you couldn’t tell that looking at his art student undercut and piercings, and his not-dead (notice how that’s a suspiciously recurring theme in this game?) brother is probably currently at a cosplay convention losing a ‘best genji costume’ competition
like maybe one day they’ll all come together and find common ground and actually do something, but for now they’re just a bunch of weird people in different stages of washed up trying to make ends meet, and it might be the most relatable thing about the whole entire game
So friend of mine and I were Skypin’ it up the other night and I went on some tangent about Aku going through a midlife crisis post-season 4, leading up to the events in Season 5. This struck friend-Mason as particularly funny so he decided to turn my inane rant into art.
hello i got carried away and it’s 4am now. welcome to the restaurant au, better known now as genji’s early midlife crisis AU, now with genyatta
genji comes to the slow realization he’s actually a Responsible Successful person now after weaning out of his punkish rebel persona and Also, that professor who frequents he and his brother’s ramen shop is super cute and Genji is conflicted bc perhaps embracing this bookish philosophy prof also means embracing being a Normal Person and he is not ready.
