Jesse, you don’t have to listen to me all the time. It’s your own damn life. But if there’s anything I want you to actually take to heart, it’s this: Find someone who is the lyrics to your music and the music to your lyrics. Got that mijo?
Band AU. It’s honestly my favorite AU that I have going on with this lovely.
It has become extensive story wise and I do not have the confidence to summarize it well enough to do it justice. oTL
But some context for these two: Hanzo and McCree are in a rag tag rock band and get to know one another during the band’s tour. Hanzo is the bassist and McCree is lead vocalist who also plays guitar. Hanzo is excellent at writing lyrics and McCree excels at composing songs. They learn more about each other, help each other through their fears and the ghosts of their pasts, connect through music and lyrics, flirt while they play billiards, cheesy lyrics and implied confessions happen on stage, twooter drama, lots of antics in trailers, and more.
Bottom line, we love this AU and it’s very dear to us!
i see a lot of posts going around about how the process of making art is essentially just tears and experiencing The Struggle™ and while those are ALL TRUE i would also like to point out the GOOD THINGS about making art!!!!!!
when u finally find that ONE PERFECT SHADE OF COLOR
experimenting with different art styles
those tiny mindless doodles u make on the corner of the page
flipping ur canvas and seeing that ur drawing isnt TOO asymmetrical
[picks brush u dont often use] why the HECK dont i use this more often???
putting ur music on shuffle and a song that fits the scene of what ure drawing comes on
turning off ur lineart layer and having a good laugh over how ur color layer looks like a melting ice cream
drawing something u’ve never tried and realizing that u LIKE IT
when ur friend does the compliment thing. thank u friend
drawing a curvy line and GETTING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TRY
overlay. thats it
spacing out in the middle of sketching/lining/coloring and 5 mins later going like o HEY COOL i can draw
that tiny pop when u stretch ur back after hours of arting
seeing the final result and thinking goddamn!!!!!!
What would a TFA yandere Optimus and MTMTE Ratchet be like?
He means well, truly he does, but that noble
drive of his to protect you and keep you safe sometimes borders on the
He’s never had this much responsibility
before. He doesn’t know if he’ll make a
good leader, or if he can even do this job at all, but you’re in his charge and
he’s vowed to protect you with his very life if need be (like a night pledging
his service to his lady.)
There’s so much about you that Optimus admires
– your strength, your passion, your kindness.
In his eyes you truly are the best of what humanity has to offer. You have such a brilliant inner light about
you, and he’s going to do everything in his power to make sure no one tries to
snuff you out.
He’s chivalrous and courteous to you right from
the very beginning, treating you with the same respect he would the other
members of his team and not shutting down your ideas or telling you what you
can and can’t do just because you’re a human.
He doesn’t even approach you with romantic
intentions for fear of spoiling your friendship. (You’d have to be the one to reach out to him
if you wanted any kind of relationship.)
That’s not to say he doesn’t love you – Primus does
he love you! You’re all he ever thinks
about! Your smile sets his spark on fire
and when you say his name, it’s all he can do to keep from overheating. He wants you so badly that his desires have
begun to seep into his dreams at night – dreams that he dare not even think
He doesn’t breath a word of this to anyone of
course, especially not you. Optimus is
very good at hiding his true feelings. It’s
not right, he knows it’s not right for him to feel this way about you. He feels as though he’s betrayed your trust
in him simply by having these feelings. Even
if he can’t have you the way that he wants, at least he gets to see that
beautiful smile of yours every day.
But worse than his feelings for you are the
twisted pangs of jealousy he gets whenever he sees someone trying to get close
to you. Optimus knows he has no right to
be jealous, why should he? He can’t even
blame you for flirting back because he knows you’re oblivious to his feelings –
by his own choice, no less. He hates
himself for it, and yet he can’t bring himself to stop. The longer he goes without confessing, the
darker and angrier his possessive streak grows.
He hides it well, because of course he
does. No bot would ever suspect the
esteemed Optimus Prime of harboring those kind of murderous thoughts, that is
until they’re backed up against the wall of a dark alley with an axe blade to
their neck and Optimus growling poisonous threats into their audials.
You’re blissfully unaware of any of this of course;
he makes vitally sure of that. But you
can’t help but notice the almost animalistic rage that overtakes him on the
battle field when he feels there’s a threat to your safety…
His obsession with you stems less from
attraction and more from a possessive need to keep you safe.
Ratchet often has a habit of “adopting” some of
the younger/smaller/innocent bots on the crew, so it’s little wonder that he
would take the one human on board under his wing.
He really is a wonderful guardian, if a bit
overbearing at times. He constantly nags
you to make sure you’re taking care of yourself (getting enough to eat, exercising,
taking your vitamins.)
Primus help you if you have an erratic sleeping
schedule. You’re going to bed when
Ratchet says you are, no excuses! Don’t
make him come over there and carry you!
He’s not what you’d call a cuddly bot by any
means, but he does like for you to sit on his shoulder while he works. He finds your presence comforting. And Primus knows he needs all the calm he can
get on this ship.
He’s extremely protective of you. He doesn’t like for you to be out of his
sight for too long. What if you wandered
off somewhere and got lost? What if
something happened and you couldn’t reach him?
What if you got stepped on?! The
only people Ratchet trusts to look after you while he’s away are his fellow
medics. (He knows they’ll also force you
to eat and sleep regularly when he’s not around.)
He’d never tell you who you can and can’t talk
to, but he strongly advises you to
stay away from bots like Whirl, or any of the larger bots that might
accidentally crush you without realizing it.
You notice a change in Ratchet when Drift is
sent away. He becomes more frustrated,
unfocused and despondent, often ignoring his own advice and forgoing sleep or
refueling. You can tell loosing someone
so close to him is taking a mental and physical toll on him. You just wish there was something you could
do to help.
He starts becoming more affectionate with you,
often sitting you in his lap to stroke your hair and back absentmindedly while
he works, or carrying you around the ship in his hands. You don’t mind the extra attention. If holding you somehow brings him one small
shred of comfort then you’re happy to oblige him.
His worry for you also increases tenfold. It gets to the point where he doesn’t like
you to leave the medbay unless he’s there to carry you. He even offers to help you move some of the
stuff from your shared habsuite there so you’ll be more comfortable when he’s
working late. It’s a bit smothering at
times, but you grin and bear it for his sake.
After all, he’s done so much for you already. The least you can do is be there for him
during his time of grief.
It’s only when you awake one morning to find
that you’ve been stolen from your bed as Ratchet pilots a stolen escape pod
halfway across the galaxy do you realize (too late) just how wrong you had been…
I pretty much have no idea how to draw actual angels and actual wings. xD Also wanted to portray Cas as something of a leader with a princely holier-than-thou vibe. ;A; I have half a mind to do the other angels too…
