oh god it's really ending

The Way to a Heart (1)

When Hanzo first joins Overwatch, it was just as tumultuous as the world around him.

Experiences of each agent—clashing ideologies were a focal point that nearly every argument gravitated around, and tensions only mounted with the addition of world-famous ex-weightlifter, Aleksandra “Zarya” Zaryanova, and Vishkar architect, Satya Vaswani into their fold. (They are perfectly fine people on their own barring their prejudices that make conversation outside of the simulations a bit terse, but it is not an issue Hanzo concerns himself with.)

The defunct Overwatch nearly crumbles on its own foundation before it’s even able to take off, the barrier of differing morals and methodologies is their greatest barrier to overcome. Fighting Talon is easy. Fighting for a cause as loose as ‘world peace’ is a fool’s errand made more complicated by the differing standpoints of each agent.

Hanzo understands this well, but needs no part of it, seeking refuge in either the highest elevation of the Watchpoint, the training rooms, or the cool and impartial cafeteria where the only judgment passed is from himself unto the food choices presented to him on the terminals. He found himself visiting the latter more often than he himself would have expected.

The cafeteria is a sanctuary where everyone is servant to the whims of their stomach, and he is no different. Here, no arguments take place, mouths stuffed full with food, and plenty of space for bickering agents to avoid each other. High domed ceiling like those in Western movies that his brother once fancied, and a sturdy pillar every few meters, and its ever present deacon presiding over them, the ‘Chef’ (named aptly so by the other Overwatch members).

“Lonicera Paellax”

Ignis/Aranea (FFXV) | 3.2k words | I’ll tag it M but it doesn’t really deserve it

Authors Notes: Oh god, there wasn’t enough content for this ship so I made some??? Have 3,000 words of Ignis over-intellectualizing the entire universe, and Aranea being her generally sassy self. Pre-Altissia. Canon compliant where there’s actually canon to be had. Vague musings of Iggy’s backstory. Allusions to Aranea/Ravus. 


“So what is this plant we’re hunting for, again?”

Lonicera Paellax.”

“Great. Got anything more helpful than that, Ivory Tower?” Aranea’s voice was a taunting barb a few paces behind him as they picked their way through the beach rose and scrub pine of the Vannath sea-cliffs. “I’m not writing a dissertation. I’d just like to be able to spot the damn things before I’ve crushed them all to hell. These boots aren’t exactly ballet shoes, you know.”    

Ignis smirked. Of course he new that the scientific name was useless in their current context, but he liked the sound of the words… and maybe the sound of her frustration.

Women’s Appreciation Week | Day Seven ♀ free choice

‘Well, Wart,’ said Merlyn, ‘here we are – or were – again. How nice you look in your crown. I was not allowed to tell you before, or since, but your father was, or will be, King Uther Pendragon, and it was I myself, disguised as a beggar, who first carried you to Sir Ector’s castle, in your golden swaddling bands. I know all about your birth and parentage and who gave you your real name. I know the sorrows before you, and the joys, and how there will never again be anybody who dares to call you by the friendly name of Wart. In future it will be your glorious doom to take up the burden and to enjoy the nobility of your proper title: so now I shall crave the privilege of being the very first of your subjects to address you with it – as my dear liege lord, King Arthur.’

‘Will you stay with me for a long time?’ asked the Wart, not understanding much of this.

‘Yes, Wart,’ said Merlyn. ‘Or rather, as I should say (or is it have said?), Yes, King Arthur.’

Johndave week - Day 2: Favourite AU

Okay so I don’t have any AU’s personally (or at least not developed ones) but one of my favourite’s from fic is His Camera Captures Moments by Kankrisredsweater. It’s really good and I may have gone overboard here a little. I just really enjoy the portrayal of John and Dave’s relationship, and the build up!

What is it that you wish for that we don’t already have, besides bringing back the dead? Have you forgotten, Herr Frankenstein, that was never a part of the natural order? That our Father has provided everything that was promised? “Be fruitful and multiply. Replenish the Earth.” You want to chase ghosts instead of offering men hope.
