    Summary

    "Hermathena or Hermathene (Ancient Greek: Ἑρμαθήνη) was a composite statue, or rather a herm, which may have been a terminal bust or a Janus-like bust, representing the Greek gods Hermes and Athena...It was natural to see these two deities unified or fused as one form: the Greek god Hermes presided over eloquence, the goddess Athena over crafts and the sciences."

    Or: Their stories could be told apart, but the thing is, they're so tangled in each other that to properly weave a pattern of truth, both need to be taken at once, like two sides of the same coin.

    It's too bad Anthony Hagan and Herman Mendoza don't know how much they need each other.

    Summary

    Mutsunokami is fascinated by his master. He just can’t leave him alone—even when it seems that perhaps the master would like to be left alone.

    But letting his master isolate himself just isn’t Mutsunokami’s style. Not by a long shot. Not when Mutsunokami feels this overwhelming want in the pit of his stomach...

    Summary

    “Steve,” she said abruptly. “There’s a secret I’ve kept from you.”

    Steve nearly joked that there were a lot of secrets she kept from him. That was her nature. But he sensed the gravity of her point. He had thought she had unburdened herself with her earlier disclosure, but apparently not. He waited quietly for her to continue.

    “I’m not sorry I did it,” she said matter-of-factly. “But...” She turned her body toward him, but kept her eyes on the stars and pursed her lips together. “If it damages your trust in me now, I will regret that.”

    “We don’t have to be open books to be friends, Nat,” Steve offered. “We’ve established that, haven’t we?”

    Her gaze came back down to earth. “Well at first, it wasn’t your business,” she said with a small smile. “And then it was. But it made no difference by then.” She was frowning now.

    “It’s hard to know when to say certain things, isn’t it?” Steve said with a pang of guilt.

    Nat nodded. “It is. But you need to know this now.”

    He shifted to look straight at her. “So tell me,” he offered in his friendliest tone.

    Summary

    Warning: One the characters in this story will fail to use proper pronouns.
    Most of this work is based on speculation around the global state of affairs in the universe of overwatch and how it creates different characters by forging them on the heat of battle in the omnic crisis.
    This story will happen in a country and detail as much as posible the effects of such a crisis in it's state of affairs. If you do not leave in this countries that will be appering in the project as it goes i recommend you search them properly i will give details on all of the things i think are unique to where the story takes place or the culture of the characters.
    Some of this culture MAY be important to the characters motivations or subtext on their full identities,filling the gaps will give you a more well rounded understanding of the character.
    If you want desing details on the character you can find them on the archives on my art Tumblr ( SolDoesArt) if you feel inspired by this please let me know.
    Any actions commited by characters are devoided of any relathion with me and i've tried to keep an apolitical stance of real world politics.
