Leijiverse Recipe Zine

Hello, hello, my friends and I have been working on a fun project - a recipe book featuring food and drinks based on Leijiverse characters. We’re planning to fill it with cute art and a variety of dishes. We’ve already got quite a bit of work done on it, but there’s still a lot to do. If that sounds interesting to you, please follow this blog for updates! If nothing else, I’ll probably show you my many failures in the kitchen, which has to be worth something. 

Here are links to the About and FAQ!

As of right now, here are the characters I’m projecting to have recipes for, several of which are already done:

So why "To Ashes" anyway?

I know that McCree and Hanzo are often compared to wolves and dragons, but to me: their relationship is better defined by the Phoenix.

These are two people who were came to be great-who did great and terrible things. Majestic, powerful, and terrifying. Then- in a flash- that was taken away from them: Overwatch fell and Hanzo left the Shimadas. And then: they rise from the ashes, stronger and more beautiful than before. An Overwatch without the UN, a Jesse and Hanzo searching for redemption and finding it in each other.

Our theme is that Phoenix. To Ashes is separated in to three parts: Birth/Beginnings, Death/Endings, and Rebirth/Revival in honor of the Phoenix that suits these two so well.

As for the title: “ashes to ashes, dust to dust” like to think that Jesse and Hanzo’s relationship is a “till death do they part” sort of deal.

Basically, I’m a sentimental old fool.
