Could you write something with Roadrat finding a kitten and keeping it?
“I’m tellin’ ya hog! This score could set us up for years!
Go on a lovely little vacation to our own corner of paradise! We could- Oof!”
The wind was knocked from Junkrat as Roadhog’s large hand
suddenly collided with his chest, forcing him to stumble back.
“’Ey! What’s the big idea!”
Roadhog didn’t reply. He simply pointed a thick finger
towards the ground. Inches away from Jaimie’s foot sat a dishevelled kitten,
knawing on some scraps. Mako bent down and scooped the tiny thing up in one
hand. It wasn’t picture perfect with a chewed ear and chunks of fur missing.
Not to mention that it was covered in dirt. It tried letting out a meow but could
only managed a cracked mewl.
“Oi this thing’s broken,” Junkrat commented, bending down to
be eye level with the little beast. It tried another pathetic cry before
nuzzling against his face. He quickly jumped up and wiped his face, looking in
confusion at the creature. Suddenly a smile broke across his features.
“Lets keep the little critter!” he suggested, scratching it
behind its gammy ear.
“I thought you said it was broken,” Mako reminded him.
“Well I aint exactly in tip-top shape so who am I to judge?
OH! It can be our little mascot!” Jaimie replied with excited laughter, “From
this day forth, it shall be known as ‘Cat-astrophe’!”
“We’re not calling it that, Jaimie.”
“Oh? I suppose you have a better idea then mate?” the
shorter man enquired, crossing his arms.
“Dave,” Roadhog grunted, “Lets call it Dave.”
Junkrat protested but Roadhog simply ignored him and
continued walking. Mako could hardly be considered a gentle man, but he always
had a bit of a soft spot for animals. Despite all the bad shit people do,
they’re still trying to survive through it all. Anyway, they could do with more
company considering the rest of the world wanted them behind bars.
“It smells a bit funny,” Jamie piped up.
“Thanks probably you. But you’re both getting a shower. I’m
not dealing with two smelly and mangy little squeakers.”
I had to spilt it into two parts because it turned out too long and I may or may not have added some unnecessary subplots which gave me ideas for a full story, so yeah…
Warnings: mentions of murder and some swearing
Nico, a servant working in close quarters with
the Royal family, just happened to be kidnapped by pirates for information. He
just didn’t expect the captain to be that nice merchant he met the other day.
Despite his stagnant position in life, Nico felt like his
luck was finally starting to turn around.
It wasn’t exactly fun being a Royal Servant. Of course,
being a servant who came to the royal family’s quarters on a daily basis, ran
personal errands for them, and passed messages throughout the palace halls was
a job that seemed high-ranking enough for one—and it was. Only, Nico wasn’t
exactly contented with the whole ordeal.
He had money in his pockets and a place to stay; a simple
goal for an average person in his time. Yet Nico had the constant feeling that
he wasn’t living life to its potential, that he could have been doing so much
in his time but he simply wasn’t.
Well, there never really seemed much to do.
His world was small, really. The kingdom may have been
considered large, but with all the constant errands he ran he’d mapped every
street and alleyway in his mind. Of course he could opt to leave the kingdom,
travel to another town, but he knew from experience that other cities held
He’d been from
another city after all. He’d hopped from town to town before finally arriving
and settling down here. Same old, same old, everywhere he went.
So maybe that was the reason he’d go into town whenever he
could. He’d walk through the streets, the plaza, the markets…
He liked the markets.
Well, he never really bought anything, but it was amusing to
watch the little wooden toys and contraptions, sly merchants conning their way
to their customers’ pockets, and the occasional festival and fights breaking
Nico himself stood out of the way. He didn’t particularly
enjoy interacting with people, and making new friends seemed too much of a
hassle as it was unnecessary. Constantly Nico’s thoughts as he walked through
the marketplace, despite all the unwanted advertising-attention he got from all
the merchants. After all, he wasn’t the only one getting unwanted attention.
Catcalling was common in this particular district.
sweetheart! A beauty like you should get one of these fancy hats!”
Oh, now that was just rude.
Nico turned to the voice to see what poor young lady had
caught whatever salesman’s eye, when he found an unruly, sunburnt man with
choppy brown hair staring directly at him, crooked-tooth mouth parted in an
The man’s stall was filled with a variant of cheap-looking hats
and dresses—a huge mass of worn and vibrant fabric all mixed together in one
whirlwind of clothing hanging from the stall’s hooks and lying in piles.
No, this was simply not
going to do.
“Sorry, I don’t wear clothes pulled from a dead corpse,”
Nico hissed and stalked away, only to be stopped by a hand around his wrist.
“Hey now, no need to be rude,” The man grinned, his face
dangerously coming closer.
Now, Nico knew exactly how to defend himself—he wasn’t some
weak sapling. In fact, his right fist was already wound up for a hit. So you
can see why he took being ‘saved’ as an offense.
A hand slammed into the side of the unruly man’s face, who
was now being pushed against his own stall’s counter screaming apologies. Said
hand belonged to another young man, Nico guessed he was a year or two older
than him. He had perfectly sun-kissed skin, bright blue eyes, a fluff of golden
hair and a spray of freckles over his cheeks and nose. He was grinning
ear-to-ear down at Nico, standing back straight and chest puffed out.
The latter, however, gave a disappointed, unimpressed stare.
“I suppose you expect a ‘thank you’?” Nico crossed his arms.
The golden-haired man’s grin immediately wavered.
“Um, I-I’m sorry…?”
“Well, thank you, but you only succeeded in saving that
imbecile,” he gestured to the crooked-tooth man, still pinned underneath the
other’s hand. “I would have had his limbs broken by now, but it seems I’ve lost
my bloodlust.” He immediately turned and waved his hand dismissively.
As expected, he had his wrist grabbed once more from behind,
followed by the shuffling breaths of the crooked-tooth man being released.
What was not expected,
however, was the other saying, “I apologize for the inconvenience. I would like
to make it up to you, if you let me?”
Nico looked back to the other, who slowly slipped his grip
from Nico’s wrist. He was still grinning dumbly, but with a newfound glimmer of
hope in his eyes.
“Let me buy you something for lunch, please, just to make
this up to you.”
That was a reply Nico had never once heard or expected in his life. He knew he should be
cautious but… well, free lunch. Besides, what would a sunny blond in broad
daylight possibly do to him? Nico could easily knee him in the groin and escape
if he was ever lead into a dark alley…
Oh, why not. Besides, he did seem sincere, and not to
mention a little charming—but Nico would rather not think of that for now.
“What’s your name?”
“Will Solace!” The blond announced, loud and proud.
“Heh, alright. I’ll humour you for now.”
“Great! Wait, what’s your na-“
“Nico DiAngelo. Now quick, I’m hungry.”
Two days of being friends with the man and Nico was starting
to doubt his entire life.
He was very well aware that he was smiling more often, sharing
more things about himself- such as his strange fascination with darkness,
whereas most people preferred light- and he had the constant thought of blond
hair, blue eyes and sun-kissed skin on his mind.
He never gave away anything sensitive though, like his past
with his family or his position as palace staff. Will, however, babbled on
endlessly about strange people he’d met, his favorite things to do, and what
he’d do if he were king.
Will Solace could only be described as a bundle of
sunshine—and a very concerned and caring one at that.
Nico had been walking along the pier with him after they’d
had their first lunch together and accidentally tripped on the loose plank. A
loose nail on the wooden board had gotten him a fresh wound on the knee. Will was
quick to react, his expression and words panicked, but his actions calm and
collected. In no time Nico’s knee was patched up stopped bleeding.
Their second lunch, Nico had decided to share the payment—simply as a friendly gesture, nothing more.
Will had decided to take him to the plaza, where he promptly
stole a guitar from a street performer and serenaded him, attracting other
onlookers and earning a few tips as well as a bump on the head from a very
offended street performer.
Nico had to laugh at the experience—a good time he’d
Now… when he came to think of it, the only ‘good times’ he’d
ever gotten that weren’t tainted with a sort of sadness was watching festivals
from afar. Those were never really ‘good times’ in themselves. People were
constantly pushing around him and often he would get washed away in the massive
crowd—which led to him attending less and less festivals the more time went on.
Will was practically a ‘good time’ in himself—not so say
that in a dirty sort of way. Well… he was charming, captivating. He seemed to
have an air of cool collectedness around him, yet could still act as immature
and bubbly as a puppy, and very presence brought Nico a very calming sense of
And now, laying in his bed in the dark in the servant’s
barracks, he longed for the sense of freedom. Maybe going places to see the
sights wasn’t entirely what he longed for; maybe what he longed for was simply
the freedom of doing it, of not being
trapped in one spot, of being able to experience new and amazing things… and
maybe even share them with someone.
And maybe he could—
Slam! The wooden
doors had been forced open. Some fifty servants in the room, along with Nico,
jolted awake from their half-asleep states, only registering the fear of seeing
glinting blades in the dim moonlight from the doorway.
“Round ‘em up, boys!” A gruff voice called out, followed by
a chorus of maniacal laughter as well as horrified screaming from the servants,
who were immediately being bound and rounded up like chickens on the death
“Boss said to do this quick, so gag the whole lot of ‘em. We
take half o’ these gammy-legs back, the other half stays in ‘ere!” The gruff
Nico had barely registered anything said, struggling to find
his way through the mass panic, before a horrid-smelling piece of cloth was
secured around his mouth. Then rough pairs of hands bound his arms and legs
together in heavy rope. He struggled, but was soon pushed to the floor as he squirmed
The sight of a glinting blade being waved in his face and
several men in clothes of a similar fashion was the last thing Nico saw before
he blacked out, with only one last thought—pirates.
Warnings: fluff Rating: everyone Summary: daddy!Chris x Reader where you have a baby girl together and you go to your family’s for Christmas and she’s shy and clinging to mommy and daddy and just a whole bunch of fluff!

“Alright, we’re gonna put some clothes on now, okay?” You said to your daughter, Aria, only having just bathed her and towelled her dry. You wrapped the towel around her body and picked her up, cradling her head. You carried her to your bedroom, smiling as she giggled happily.
“Teddy,” she said, reaching for her favorite teddy bear as you set her down onto your and Chris’s bed. You’d set her clothes out on the bed prior to bathing her, and figured that having Teddy there would be a good distraction as you put her clothes on. You put on her diaper and blew raspberries on the skin of her soft belly, tickling her as she squealed delightedly. After you’d finished pulling up her leggings and putting on her Christmas jumper, she shouted, “Me up!” and held out her arms for you to pick her up again.
You did so, picking her up, twirling her round and throwing her a little bit into the air and catching her. You were both laughing when you heard the sound of a phone camera shutter going off a couple times. You looked to see your husband standing in the doorway, watching you both with awe, phone in hand.
