that's what he said

Really what was happening through this whole process was that the world that we are building and the heroes that we are creating no longer belong to us, so the fans of Overwatch, through fanfiction, through cosplay, through the most amazing fanart I’ve ever seen, started to take over the worldbuilding and the intellectual propriety from us. You can ask the Overwatch fans who’s dating who in the Overwatch line-up and it’s actually kind of amazing. They have stories for all of the heroes and what their love-lives are, and we love it. We think it’s the best thing ever that it belongs them. We now think of ourselves as the custodians of the Overwatch world. We are taking care of it for what our community is going to create for moving forward.

Part 2 witch!au!!! I wanna know more about their deal and why Neil's not Andrews familiar!

Neil is not Andrew’s familiar because he is not a spirit. Familiars are essentially the essence of a witch’s spirit and inner self taking the form of an animal. Gaining a familiar is a complicated process and requires blood magic, and Neil wasn’t summoned to Andrew’s side. It’s kind of hard to explain, but you know *jazz hands* magic.

As for the deal, it went something like this:

  • it’s the beginning of summer and andrew is tired
  • being around annoyances for nine months was exhausting and the only reason andrew is letting kevin inside his car is because of their promise
  • kevin stays in the car when andrew goes out
  • not too far but far enough that andrew can pretend to be alone
  • except there’s a cat in the tree above him that’s practically suffocating in binding magic
  • really, it’s a surprise that the cat’s even keeping himself upright
  • andrew… well, he’s not about to let a cat suffer so he takes the cat and does some magic to dispel the bind
    • side note: binding magic isn’t bad in any way
    • it’s usually used to make teammates/partners stronger
    • it can also be used as a sort of marriage ceremony
    • typically, binding magic isn’t permanent and requires the consent of all parties
    • however, the deal with the cat was that a taboo sort of binding spell was used so that he wouldn’t be able to escape his master without causing pain unto himself
    • that spell is not public knowledge–only the influential are meant to know about it
    • back to the story

Take a minute of your day to think about teacher Combeferre
  • Combeferre is at a crossroad in his studies and has to choose between being a biologist or teaching biology and he’s SO.TORN because SCIENCE but also EDUCATION
  • He ends up choosing education because it’s a good compromise. He knows the salary won’t be the same at all, but that’s not what he’s after
  • He’s a very organised person so he managed to organise his classes, make a time table, projects… He aces his education classes, but that’s just theory
  • Ferre is actually terrified to go on the field because kids can be mean and unpredictible, but he powers through
  • He ends up teaching biology in middle school. He loves it
  • He makes science fun and interesting. He makes cool models. He tries to show that science can be cool
  • Bless his heart, he sometimes gets SO INTO IT he rants and nerds out and he’s rambling for like 10 minutes about the dinosaurs and a rad fossil he found when he was 6
  • He organizes science fairs and everybody calls them “Science Ferre”
  • He’s also in charge of teaching sex ed and oh my god. He makes it as inclusive as possible, from contraception to LBGTQIA+ informations because he never had that and kids need that
  • Of course, some bigoted parents got ~concerned~ and Combeferre had to talk with them and the principal. Combeferre took out the official papers from the National Education system and read out loud:
  • “The teacher should strive against stereotypes and any kind of discrimination and provide for the educational needs of the students and adapting his teaching methods to these needs. Now shall I get some magnifying glasses from the lab or can you read it for yourself?”
