  • Moira isn’t normally very touchy-feely
  • It’s not that she doesn’t like physical touch, it’s just that she’s not used to it
  • So she doesn’t really initiate beyond simple touches like hand-holding
  • However, when she realises how touch starved you are, that all changes
  • It’s very important to her that you’re comfortable and content
  • So if being touched helps with that, she’s all for it
  • Although she will touch you constantly at home, she prefers to keep PDA to a minimum
  • She’s got a reputation, after all
  • So when you’re in public, hand-holding is as far as she will go
  • Once you get some privacy, though, she’s all over you
  • From cuddling with you to giving you hugs
  • If you’re nervous or shy about initiating, Moira will pick up on that
  • She’ll constantly ask you, “Darling, would you like to come over here and cuddle?”
  • When you’re cuddling, Moira is usually the big spoon
  • She likes wrapping herself around you while gently stroking your hair
  • Another thing she loves is falling asleep with you in her arms
  • It’s so comforting that she finally has found someone she trusts enough to be vulnerable with
  • Plus, it’s wonderful to wake up with you next to her
  • Even though she’s an early riser, she’ll often just spend time with you in bed in the morning, the two of you curled up together
  • You’ve really shown Moira how amazing physical touch can be!

  • Hanzo’s never really been in a loving relationship before
  • The only time he’s been in any kind of romantic relationship was in his youth, and it was more of a business arrangement than anything else
  • And after he left the Shimada Clan, he never had time for relationships
  • So he’s very awkward in the beginning,
  • Especially when it comes to your mischievous nature
  • It’s not that he doesn’t like your mischief! He actually finds it adorable!
  • The glint in your eye right before you do something chaotic is one of his favorite things!
  • It’s just that he doesn’t know how to respond to it
  • Usually, whenever you do something mischievous, Hanzo just chuckles awkwardly, albeit fondly, and gives you a shy smile
  • As time passes, though, his hesitance begins to fade
  • It’s a slow process, but his chuckles and smiles turn into full out laughter
  • He’ll pull you into a hug while giggling into your hair
  • One of the other things that comes with him growing more comfortable in your relationship is that he’s far more open to cuddling
  • Pulling you into his side and wrapping an arm around you is something he loves!
  • It’s during these little cuddle sessions that you discover how ticklish Hanzo is
  • You’re idly running your fingers along his stomach when he lets out a giggle
  • As soon as you realise the source of his laughter, you smile deviously while Hanzo groans, knowing that you will abuse your newfound knowledge
  • Hanzo is constantly on guard for your attacks
  • He knows better than to underestimate you, so he’s always trying to protect himself
  • Most of the time, when you try and sneak up on him to attack him with tickles, he catches you
  • He whirls around and wraps his arms around you, stopping your attempt
  • “Better luck next time, Koibito,” he’ll say with a smug grin
  • On rare occasions, you actually succeed in your stealth mission, and manage to get in some good tickles!
  • Within just a few seconds, Hanzo is a shrieking mess of laughter
  • After this has happened a few times, he begins to plot his revenge
  • And thus, the two of you begin a war of sorts
  • You’re both surprising each other with tickles constantly!
  • It always ends with the two of you on the floor, panting and grinning from ear-to-ear
  • Once the two of you have caught your breath, Hanzo will look at you adoringly
  • He never thought he’d be able to have this, but you’ve proved him wrong
  • And that’s one of the many, many reasons he loves you!

  • But he still worries about your safety

  • It’s not likely you’ll ever have to use those skills, but he wants you to prepare for everything
  • But as much as he worries about you, he also loves your size

  • And you’re so small that he could easily hurt you
  • So he’s skittish about physical contact
  • But, as time goes on, he grows to love touching you

Chapter Text

  • Satya has always really struggled to make friends
  • In her childhood she was labeled as the ‘know-it-all’, so her peers didn’t want to spend time with her
  • This made it so she never really learned how to maintain healthy relationships
  • She also struggles to read social cues
  • All in all, Satya doesn’t have many friends, which has led her to be very lonely
  • Which is awful, because she’s actually an amazing friend once you get to know her
  • She’s always looking after the people she cares about
  • Although she’s not instinctively big on physical or verbal displays of affection, she shows her love in plenty of other ways
  • For example, she’s always arranging her schedule with you in mind
  • That way, she can make sure she’s spending a lot of time with you
  • Satya is very good at remembering your preferences
  • Even if you only make one offhand comment about how you like/dislike something, she will always keep it in mind in case it comes up in the future
  • She always has your favorite foods/drinks on hand
  • Satya also very much loves to talk to you
  • She will often go to you when she needs someone to bounce ideas off of
  • Or if she wants to gossip about her coworkers
  • Or if she wants to discuss deep, existential topics
  • Really, she just loves talking to you about anything at all
  • Partly because she highly values your opinion, and also because it’s a great way to bond
  • Another great way to bond with her is to have a little book club
  • Satya loves reading, and if you enjoy it too, she’ll make an effort to recommend books she thinks you’ll like
  • So having a mini book club with you would be perfect for her
  • It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just the two of you comparing opinions on books you’ve read
  • She really enjoys having philosophical discussions about the themes of books you’ve both read
  • If you want to be a great friend, check in on Satya every now and then
  • She tends to get lost in her work and forget self care
  • So just remind her to take some breaks and eat/hydrate/sleep
  • After all, Satya listens to you more than other people
  • You’re one of her only friends, and she will never take you for granted!

Sigma

  • Siebren is a mother hen
  • And he hates seeing you hurt, even if it’s only a little bit
  • He actually learned simple first-aid just in case you ever need it
  • Whenever he finds a new bruise or scrape on you, he frets a bit
  • Are you okay? Do you need a band-aid? Some painkillers? A hug?
  • It’s obvious he worries, but he tries to hide it
  • He doesn’t want you to think he doesn’t trust that you can take care of yourself
  • Because he does trust you! He knows you’re capable!
  • He just also knows that you’re a bit of a klutz, so he can’t help but worry
  • So, whenever you get injured, Siebren tends to fawn over you a little
  • It’s actually really cute to see this sweetheart take care of you so well
  • Also, if you ever fall when you’re next to him, he’ll 100% catch you and then say, with the cheesiest smile ever, ‘My dear, I think you just fell for me!”
  • He’ll then burst into giggles and almost drop you because of his laughter

 

Hanzo

  • Hanzo could give a master class in the art of worrying
  • And he especially worries about you
  • You’re very special to him, and he hates the thought of you getting hurt
  • He knows that a few tumbles probably won’t seriously hurt you, but he still gets concerned
  • So Hanzo always carries some painkillers, as well as a first aid kit
  • And he also makes sure you do, too
  • He suggests you keep a panic button on you, as well, so you can contact him if you get seriously injured.
  • Whenever Hanzo sees you’ve gotten a new injury, he asks if you’re okay
  • Even if it’s tiny, he still wants to make sure you’re good
  • If the injury is worse than normal, he’ll insist that you rest while he takes care of you
  • He also gets a little touchy-feely, and will likely spend some time cuddling you
  • But, for as much as he worries, he also finds it a little bit endearing
  • After he makes sure you’re okay, he’ll chuckle a bit and gently tease you

Chapter Text

  • Gabriel was flanking the Overwatch crew when he felt a gentle tug on his cloak
  • He whirled around, ready to face an enemy, only to find a young child looking up at him
  • And it only took him a single second to know that this is his daughter
  • The breath is knocked out of him
  • He’s watched his child from the shadows, of course, but the last time he got to be close to her was when she were still a baby
  • The kid, his kid, was looking up at him with wide eyes
  • Gabriel is immediately furious
  • Not at his daughter, of course, but at whoever brought her here
  • How dare they bring his child to a battlefield? How dare they?
  • His anger was forgotten when she loudly introduced herself with a huge grin
  • Gabriel shakily introduced himself in return, heart beating out of his chest
  • He knew he should leave, because every moment his daughter spends with him is a moment she’s in danger
  • But he just couldn’t force himself to walk away
  • Not when his baby girl was right in front of him, looking up at him with such a big grin
  • So Gabriel decided that his mission can wait
  • After all, someone needs to make sure she’s safe
  • He sat with his daughter, making idle conversation
  • She dominated most of the conversation, and Gabriel was completely content to listen to her babble on about her favorite cartoons
  • Talking with her like that made so many feelings well up in his chest
  • There was adoration of his beautiful baby girl
  • But there was also anger that his daughter was ripped away from his life
  • And sadness that he missed so much of her childhood
  • As well as happiness that he was getting to talk to her at all
  • There was even gratitude towards Morrison of all people, for doing his best to raise her
  • But that gratitude was mostly drowned out by jealousy that Morrison got to raise her while Gabriel didn’t
  • Eventually, Gabriel heard heavy footsteps and voices approaching, and he knew that people had come looking for his daughter
  • So he dissolved into mist and retreated into the shadows
  • He stayed close enough to watch, just to make sure she got home safe
  • Jealousy flared up in him when he watched Morrison wrap his daughter in a big hug and reprimand her for sneaking onto the mission
  • But he suppressed it
  • And if he purposefully let Morrison escape every time in the future so his daughter wouldn't lose someone important to her? Well, no one had to know about that.

Hanzo

  • You and Hanzo are out on date when you faint
  • It had been a great date, too
  • He had taken you out to a little restaurant and the two of you had spent the whole time talking and laughing together
  • So it catches Hanzo off guard when you faint out of your chair
  • He’s at your side in seconds, trying to catch you before you hit the floor
  • Although he’s panicking on the inside, he manages to appear calm
  • He calls an ambulance which arrives quickly and takes you away
  • The whole time you’re with the doctors, Hanzo is in the waiting room asking for constant updates
  • They tell him that you had almost stopped breathing and he has to sit down
  • Thoughts of you dying overwhelm him and make him panic
  • When he’s finally allowed to see you, he nearly collapses in relief
  • You’re still asleep when he’s allowed in, and Hanzo doesn’t want to wake you
  • So he sits at your bedside and holds your hand until you regain consciousness
  • When you finally do wake up, he could cry he’s so relieved
  • For the next few days, he hovers around you and constantly worries
  • Are you okay? Do you need anything?
  • Seriously, he’ll get you anything at all
  • Even if it’s ridiculous and expensive, he’ll trip over himself to provide it for you
  • Hanzo just wants your recovery to be as easy as possible

 

Sigma

  • Siebren knows a fair amount of first aid
  • So when you first pass out, he’s able to help a little bit
  • But he’s also shaking with worry and fear
  • As soon as the paramedics arrive, he practically collapses
  • While you’re with the doctors, Siebren is sitting in the waiting room trying to fight his panic attack
  • It’s not helped by the fact that the waiting room is crowded and chaotic
  • But he wants to be there when you wake up, so he doesn’t leave
  • When the doctors tell him that you stopped breathing, it becomes too much for him
  • He has to step outside for a few minutes to calm down
  • Siebren’s so relieved when he’s finally allowed to see you
  • It really helps him to sit next to you, even though you’re still unconscious
  • So he’ll sit in the chair next to your bed and hold your hand while whispering reassurances to both you and himself
  • Once you wake up, he cries from relief
  • He barely leaves your side for the next few days
  • He’s anxious that if he leaves, you’ll get hurt and he won’t be able to help
  • Eventually, Siebren’s anxiety fades, and he’s able to resume his life without constantly worrying
  • Still, he takes precautions to make sure you don’t have another allergic reaction
  • He never wants either of you to go through that again

Chapter Text

Hanzo

  • Hanzo is very overwhelmed during your labor
  • A large part of him is ecstatic that his child is finally being born
  • But there’s also a part of him filled with fear and worry that something will go wrong
  • And because Hanzo is a bit emotionally stunted, he doesn’t know how to express his concerns
  • So instead, he stands awkwardly by your side, lost in his head
  • When you grab his collar and jerk him down to yell at him, he doesn’t know how to react
  • You don’t seem to notice his surprise, rambling on about how angry you are, how this is his fault, ect.
  • After his shock wears off, though, Hanzo realises that he’s been so caught up in his worries that he hasn’t been comforting you as he should have
  • So he pushes his anxiety to the back of his mind and reaches out for your hand
  • “It’s okay, Shin'aina. You can do this,” he assures you, stroking your hair away from your sweaty forehead
  • For the rest of your labor, he’s by your side, holding your hand, whispering encouragement, and doing anything he can think of to comfort you
  • You can scream at him in anger and pain all you want
  • If it makes you feel better, Hanzo is all for it
  • And when you two finally get to see your little bundle of joy, you both know that it was all worth it

 

Genji

  • Genji is bouncing with excitement throughout your labor
  • He can’t help it! He’s about to meet his child!
  • But, as excited as he is, he’s also keenly aware of how painful birth can be
  • So he does his best to comfort you, encouraging you to practice your breathing exercises and to push and so on
  • He’s very repetitive with it, to the point where it gets kind of annoying
  • It comes from a place of love, it really does!
  • But after the fifth or sixth time he encourages you to take deep breaths, you lose it
  • Genji’s taken aback when you suddenly start yelling at him
  • He quickly recovers from his surprise and takes your anger in stride
  • From what he’s read (and he’s read a lot), it’s normal to be hormonal and in pain during birth
  • So it’s not too shocking that the way that manifests is through anger
  • Genji talks you through it calmly, murmurs comforting words, presses kisses to your forehead, and wipes away your tears and sweat with gentle fingers
  • If you want to yell at him, that’s okay, he understands
  • Whatever makes this easier for you
  • When he gets to hold his child in his arms, he cries tears of joy
  • Making a family with you is the best decision he’s ever made

 

Cassidy

  • From the minute you went into labor, Cole was doing his best to be there for you
  • He’s massaging your shoulders and covering you in light kisses
  • Through it all, he’s grinning so wide, unable to keep his giddiness off his face
  • He’s always loved kids, and the thought that he’s about to have one of his own is enough to fill him with joy
  • You, however, are not so happy
  • When you start yelling at him, Cole isn’t fazed
  • He’s very familiar with using anger as a way to deal with pain
  • When you scream that this is his fault, that you’re going to strangle him, he’s endlessly amused
  • He can’t stop the chuckles from escaping him
  • Still, he does his best to calm you, mostly by calling you an abundance of cheesy pet names
  • If nothing else, it serves as a distraction
  • “It’s okay. Darlin’, I promise you can get through this.”
  • “C’mon, Sugar Pie. You got this.”
  • “Shh, Honey Bee, you’re okay.”
  • If it helps, Cole will softly hum or sing some soothing songs to help you relax
  • He’s got the most beautiful, calming voice you’ve ever heard
  • As soon as he gets to hold his baby, he’s so clearly enamored with them
  • It’s adorable to see this soft cowboy coo softly at the little bundle in his arms, eyes shining with tears of happiness

Chapter Text

Cassidy

  • Cole’s wardrobe consists mainly of flannel button-ups
  • They’re somewhat worn, as he doesn’t have much opportunity to go clothes shopping, but he takes good care of them
  • And, somehow, they’re all really soft and cosy
  • When Cole first sees you wearing one of his shirts, he can’t help his grin
  • It’s just so cute and domestic!
  • After just watching you fondly for awhile, he sneaks up behind you and wraps you in a hug
  • “Enjoyin’ my shirt, Darlin’?”
  • When you tell him how comforting it is to wear his clothes and how they remind you of him, he melts
  • The fact that you love him enough that even just his clothes comfort you makes this cowboy so happy
  • In the future, Cole always makes sure you have access to his shirts
  • Especially if he’s away on a mission, because he wants you to have something to remember him by, even if he’s not there
  • Coming home to see you cuddled up in his clothes always makes his heart flutter

 

Gabriel

  • Gabriel has tons of oversized hoodies
  • They’re mainly black or other dark colors, although he does have a few bright ones
  • They’re all really high quality
  • With most people, he’s protective of his clothing, because it’s one of the few things he lets himself splurge on
  • But you’re the one person he doesn’t mind sharing with
  • Once he notices that you’re constantly wearing his hoodies, he finds it absolutely adorable
  • It’s such a small act of domesticity, but it still makes him so happy
  • Plus, you look cute in his clothes
  • He doesn’t mention it, but he doesn’t need to, because the wide grin and heart eyes he gets whenever he sees you in his clothes speaks for itself
  • Gabriel especially loves when you go out together wearing his clothes

Chapter Text

You stood outside the entrance to your boyfriend’s classroom for a second, just observing him with a smile. Siebren was completely immersed in his work, face scrunched up as he typed away on his laptop. It was adorable. After a few moments of watching fondly, you gently knocked on the door. Looking up, he smiled, signaling for you to come in.

“Ah, to what do I owe the honor, professor?” Siebren asked, leaning back in his chair as you walked into his classroom. You couldn’t help but giggle.

“Well, professor, it’s my lunch break. I thought we could eat together,” you replied, holding up a bag of food you had packed.

Siebren grinned, closing his laptop. “I would be honored, My Dear.” He stood as he spoke, and wrapped you in a hug. You sank into his arms, smiling when he pressed a kiss to your hair.

The embrace lasted for a few seconds before Siebren pulled back and guided you to the worn couch in the back of his classroom. It was something he had bought himself, to make his classes feel more relaxed. Plus, it was a great spot for the two of you to sit together.

“So, how have your classes been going?” Siebren asked as the two of you began to eat.

“Good. Almost all my students aced the quiz!” you said, grinning. “They’re improving so much!”

Siebren matched your smile. “How could they not when they have such a wonderful teacher?”

You snorted in laughter as your face heated up. “You flatter me.”

“I speak only the truth, Dear,” he responded, playfully nudging your foot with his. “You are a miraculous professor. You put even me to shame.”

“Please, Siebren, we all know your students adore you,” you objected. “I mean, how can I compete when you bring them homemade donuts every week? You’re easily everyone’s favorite.” It was the truth; both students and teachers loved him. Part of it was his kindness, part of it was his affinity for sharing his baked goods, and part of it was his passion for teaching. He was practically the perfect professor. 

“Perhaps we’re equally adored,” Siebren suggested, and you knew he wouldn’t settle for any less. He loved to tell you how amazing you were, always filling your days with compliments and reassurances.

“Perhaps we are,” you agreed, sharing a smile with him. 

The rest of your lunch break passed in a similar fashion, both of you discussing everything under the sun. By the time you had finished eating, you were sure you were even more in love with him, which you didn’t know was possible.

.”Well, My Love, I suppose our lunch break is over,” Siebren said remorsefully, the two of you lingering by the door. “May I walk you back?” You laughed, a bit giddy at his question, which seemed like something out of the cheesiest of romantic movies. 

“Of course, Siebren,” you replied, taking his hand in yours.

He lit up, beginning to walk with you back to your classroom. And if anyone noticed your intertwined hands, well, that was alright with you.

  • He rationalises it by telling himself that he’s protecting you by hiding the truth, but really, he’s scared that you’ll hate him if you see what he’s become

  • It almost works, too

  • Reaper freezes, so shocked that he accidentally lets himself get captured
  • Overwatch puts him in a cell, a bit unsure of what to do with him
  • You end up visiting him not long after, having learned of his identity

  • How do you apologise to your spouse for faking your own death?
  • You’re understandably furious at him for not telling you
  • But you’re also heartbroken

  • Sombra likes to play it cocky and flirt with everyone in sight, but the truth is, she’s never really been in a relationship
  • There’s been a few flings here and there, but nothing that lasted more than a couple weeks
  • This, as well as her trust issues, means she doesn’t have much experience
  • And yet, somehow, she’s still amazing at kissing
  • Sombra is really adaptable
  • She usually just goes with the flow
  • So if the mood is playful and silly? She’ll give quick, chaste kisses that are full of laughter
  • If the mood is heated, she’s great at shoving you against walls and pressing your lips together passionately
  • If the mood is filled with tension, she’ll hover her lips over yours with a teasing smirk before pulling you close and kissing you breathless
  • The one thing she struggles with is slower, sensual kisses
  • Mostly because she’s scared of vulnerability
  • That’s not to say she doesn’t like those moments, it just takes her a while to get used to them
  • Plus, they can overwhelm her if they happen too often
  • Over time, she gets much better about letting herself be soft and vulnerable
  • But it definitely takes effort from both of you
  • On another note, as time goes on, Sombra initiates more kisses
  • In the beginning, it was mostly you who kissed her
  • As she grows more confident in your relationship, though, she becomes less cautious, instead constantly initiating
  • Mostly with you, of course
  • But she also finds herself giving platonic cheek kisses to her friends
  • It’s usually Baptiste whose on the receiving end, and he finds it delightful
  • But, on a few occasions, Sombra has forgotten herself and planted a kiss on Widowmaker’s cheek
  • Which led to Amélie half-heartedly threatening her (though she never follows through on those threats)
  • And, once, when she was super tired and loopy, Sombra instinctually pressed a kiss to Reaper’s mask
  • Both of them froze immediately, and Gabriel basically blue-screened in shock
  • Sombra bolted away, half embarrassed, half scared he was going to kill her
  • In the end, they just silently agreed to never talk about it
  • But, well, it’s bound to happen again at some point, and Gabriel secretly doesn’t mind so much (because he’s a softie)

  • He finally opens up about his own issues to show you that he’s broken, too

  • And he vows to never let you doubt your worth again

  • If you do decide to have a conversation with him, he’ll be a super good listener, and if you don’t, he’ll completely understand
  • But either way, expect to spend the rest of the day (and a few days afterward) with Cole by your side
  • He gets clingy when he worries
  • Even after those initial days, he’s sure to constantly remind you how much he loves you

  • As soon as she sees your self-harm marks, she freezes
  • Nothing could have prepared her for this
  • She leaves your room, deciding to ask you about it when you wake up
  • Sombra doesn’t know if she should call Amélie or not

Chapter Text

  • No matter how hard he tries, Siebren is not subtle at all
  • He’s an open book to pretty much anyone
  • So when he starts hinting at wanting kids, it’s very easy to see
  • At first, he actually makes an effort at being subtle, just making somewhat off-hand comments about children
  • But even that isn’t very secret
  • Because his way of making off-hand comments is just to bring up how cool it would be to have kids
  • Here’s some of the things he’s said while trying to be subtle:
  • “Oh, wouldn’t this room be a wonderful nursery? What a shame we don’t have any children…”
  • “You know, it’s almost ‘bring your child to work’ day at my university. If only I had a little one to introduce to my students.”
  • “There’s so many great elementary schools in our area! It’s too bad we don’t have a child.”
  • And, finally: “If, hypothetically, we had a hypothetical child, what would you want to hypothetically name them? Hypothetically, of course.”
  • It’s honestly cute how he fails so hard at being subtle
  • As time moves on, Siebren becomes more and more obvious about his desire to have children
  • He’ll buy parenting books and make sure you can see them
  • He’ll fawn over every baby he sees
  • He’ll shove pillows under his shirt and pretend to be pregnant, much to your amusement

  • And when you tell him that his dreams are coming true, he wraps you in a big bear hug, a few tears of happiness escaping him
  • The two of you are going to be great parents!

Chapter Text

  • Gabriel has a lot of regrets about his old life
  • But his biggest regret is about his daughter
  • He hates that he had to leave her, even if it was for her protection
  • At the same time, though, he thinks it was for the best
  • After all, he views himself as a monster, and he doesn’t want to scare his daughter
  • Or, worse, get her hurt by involving her in his dangerous life
  • So, although Gabriel keeps tabs on her, he also never told her that he was still alive
  • And, for a long time, he didn’t tell you about her existence
  • But after a while, when he’s sure you would never hurt him or his daughter, he tells you about her
  • Both because you deserve to know, and also because he’s desperate to talk to someone about it
  • Once Gabriel gets to talking about his daughter, he becomes really excited
  • He will show you pictures and brag about her accomplishments and talk your ear off about how amazing she is
  • No matter how stoic he normally is, he can’t help showing how much he adore his daughter
  • But, no matter how excited he is, there’s an element of sadness to him
  • After all, he hasn’t interacted her since he ‘died’
  • And he misses her more than anything
  • Still, it helps to be able to talk about her, especially with you
  • So expect for the two of you to spend plenty of time discussing her
  • The more time Gabriel spends with you, the more he wishes he could introduce you to her
  • He knows the two of you would love each other
  • His desire for the two of you to meet weakens his resolve to stay away from her
  • So, with time (and a bit of encouragement from you) he might gain the bravery to reveal himself to his daughter
  • When he does that, it mends a huge hole in his heart
  • And, true to his expectations, you two get along great
  • Seeing the love of his life and his daughter get along so well makes Gabriel more content than he’s ever been.

Chapter Text

  • Siebren also does not take care of himself
  • Before the black hole accident, he did a better job of it, but now his thoughts are all very scrambled, which makes it hard to remember self care
  • So he sometimes forgets to eat or sleep or take breaks
  • A part of it stems from his repressed guilt
  • Deep down, he knows that sticking with Talon and doing some of the things he does is wrong, even if he’s not ready to confront that yet
  • So denying himself his basic needs is a way to subconsciously punish himself
  • However, he’s a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to self care
  • Because while he doesn’t see anything wrong with him skipping a few meals, he hates when you do the same
  • He makes it his personal mission to make sure you’re taken care of
  • So he’s constantly checking on you, gently reminding you to eat and sleep and take breaks
  • Whenever Siebren asks you to take care of yourself, you can't really resist
  • He has these huge puppy dog eyes and really sad pout that makes it hard to say no
  • Plus, the way he grins when you listen to his advice makes it worth it
  • If you do find it in you to resist, Siebren will find other ways to persuade you
  • Like cooking food that smells really good so you’ll come eat
  • Or loudly proclaiming that he wants to go to sleep but needs someone to cuddle with
  • He also sets aside time from both his and your work so the two of you relax together
  • Whenever you take care of yourself, Siebren will shower you with compliments about how proud he is
  • In general, he’s just really happy for you
  • Because you deserve to be taken care of
  • As Siebren helps you with your workaholic tendencies, you also help him
  • Because he wants to improve for you
  • So he’ll slowly start trying to fix his workaholic tendencies
  • Neither of you will improve overnight, but you have each other for moral support

Chapter Text

  • Cole has had a crush on you since the moment you two met
  • He couldn’t help but form a bit of an infatuation when he first saw you
  • Of course, he assumed it would go away with time
  • Plus, he’s probably one of the members you’re cold towards
  • So he didn’t act on anything
  • But then he saw you interact with Hana and the Omnics, and his crush turned into something more serious
  • Something about your hidden, gentle nature makes the cowboy swoon
  • Cole begins trying to engage you more and more
  • He still respects your boundaries, and if you act too cold towards him, he’ll back off
  • But he really likes you, so he’s determined to at least become your friend
  • At first, he just strikes up casual conversations and such
  • It might take a little effort, but how can you not warm up to the lovable cowboy?
  • As time goes on and you become more comfortable with him, Cole will start to flirt a bit
  • Oh, and he will 100% enlist Hana to be his wingwoman
  • And she’d down, because she loves playing matchmaker
  • So with Hana trying desperately to set you up, and Cole constantly giving you heart-eyes, it’s clear to everyone that he likes you
  • Soon, even the Omnics are trying to set you up
  • Bastion will give Cole flowers from his garden so he can give them to you
  • Orisa will try and convince you to ask him on a date
  • Even Zenyatta gets in on the action, making a few casual comments about how you and Cole seem rather compatible
  • With all of that happening, how can you resist?
  • When the two of you finally get together, you find a really nice balance
  • Cole will never try and change you, but his charismatic and charming nature helps balance out your coldness
  • Plus, you, Hana, and the Omnics all become a tightly-knit friend group
  • And neither of you would have it any other way

Chapter Text

Hanzo

  • First of all, Hanzo is going to rescue you very quickly
  • Although he’s severed ties with the Shimada Clan, he still has a few powerful contacts that can help him find you
  • Plus, he’s insanely skilled himself
  • So it doesn’t take long for him to get you home
  • Still, your captors didn’t exactly go easy on you, and you have the injuries to show for it
  • The moment Hanzo catches sight of the injuries that you’ve suffered, the rage in him amplifies
  • After he gets you somewhere safe, he will find your kidnappers and make them suffer
  • He passes it off as something he does for your sake, but really, it’s his way of stalling
  • After all, hunting people down and hurting them was something he knew how to do, but comforting you? That’s another ballpark entirely
  • However, after everyone who had a hand in your kidnapping is taken care of, he knows that he has to be there for you
  • You don’t need revenge; you need someone you can lean on
  • Hanzo’s still learning how to be a good boyfriend, but he tries so hard
  • He soothes you after every nightmare, wraps his arms around you when you cry, holds your hand when the pain of your injuries is at its worst
  • For the first few weeks after your kidnapping, he doesn’t let you lift a finger
  • It’s kinda endearing, how much he cares, but also kind of annoying
  • There’s a fine line between helping and coddling, and Hanzo has basically vaulted over that line
  • But once you express this to him, he finds a better balance
  • He’s still a bit overprotective, but he tones it down to a much more manageable amount
  • You can also expect to have greater security on you at all times
  • Hanzo dreads the idea of your capture repeating itself
  • So he all but forces several different security measures onto you
  • Equipped with everything from tasers to a panic button, you’re much safer than you were before
  • And you’ll never have to deal with anything that horrible again if Hanzo has anything to say about it

Genji

  • Genji normally has a very good hold on his anger
  • He’s practiced his emotional control for years, after all
  • But when you’re taken by Talon, he struggles to remain calm
  • You’re so important to him, and the thought of what they might do to you fills him with rage
  • He manages to channel that rage into searching for you, ruthlessly cutting through Talon
  • Of course, with all of Overwatch by his side looking for you, they find you quickly
  • The first thing Genji does when he gets to you is take you far, far away from your kidnappers
  • As much as a dark, angry part of him would rather kill everybody who has ever been associated with Talon, your comfort is more important
  • So he takes you straight home, where Mercy is waiting to heal you
  • Even though the sight of your injuries makes him even angrier, he stays with you through the healing process
  • He holds your hand and murmurs sweet reassurances the entire time
  • And, once you’re all healed, Genji spends the rest of the night curled up with you
  • Cuddling together calms the both of you immensely
  • In the days following your capture, Genji is even more attentive than normal
  • And that’s saying something
  • He doesn’t coddle you, exactly, but he’s always near you
  • Both to comfort and protect you
  • Another thing he does is give you all kinds of little gifts, from chocolate to flowers
  • You also spends a lot of time cuddling together
  • The positive physical contact is a win-win, because it helps you recover, and it helps remind Genji that you’re safe again
  • Because, as much as he focuses on you, he’s also shaken from your kidnapping
  • He can’t bear the thought of losing you, which he expresses through loving care
  • Genji also offers to set you up for some sessions with someone from the Shambali
  • Or even just a regular therapist
  • After all, what you went through was traumatising, and Genji wants you to be able to talk to someone about it
  • You have him to rant to, of course, but a therapist can also be really helpful
  • Really, Genji is just the perfect person to have by your side

Sigma

  • Make no mistake: Siebren is really, really terrifying when he wants to be
  • He just… usually doesn’t want to be
  • But the moment he finds out you were kidnapped, he lets himself go feral
  • He basically just walks up to where you were taken and uses his powers to destroy the place
  • Of course, you’re kept completely safe, but the same can’t be said for your captors
  • When Siebren finds you, he’s already razed the entire building, with only your cell left standing
  • He quickly destroys that, too, careful to not hurt you in the process
  • And then he wraps you in his arms and holds you for a long time
  • The both of you are crying, but neither of you mention it
  • After a while, he seems to realise that you’re injured, and freaks out again
  • Instantly, he’s rushing you to a hospital, even if the injuries are minor
  • Once everything settles down a bit, Siebren doesn’t know what to do
  • Your kidnapping was a huge blow to his mental health, and he already wasn’t in the best emotional state
  • At the same time, though, he feels selfish for that, because you must’ve had it worse than him
  • So, for a while, he completely ignores his mental, physical, and emotional health
  • All in favor of taking care of you
  • He’ll clean and cook and basically just take care of you however he can
  • It takes you chastising him a bit for him to realise that maybe that wasn't the best approach
  • Your health is important, of course, but his is too, and it’s time he realised that
  • After the two of you have a long talk about that, Siebren gets a little bit better
  • He’s still far from perfect, but it’s a start
  • And, together, the two of you can recover from this, no matter how long it takes

Chapter Text

Sombra

“What’s that?”

The sudden question made you jump as you whipped your head around to face your girlfriend. Her approach had been silent. “You scared me!” you exclaimed, pressing a hand to your chest, right over your racing heart.

Sombra cracked a smile. “You’ve gotta pay more attention, Cariño . And you didn’t answer my question. What’s that?” As she spoke, she pulled a chair over so she could sit beside you at the computer, observing the game you were playing with curiosity.

You shrugged, blushing. “It’s a fan-game. About Overwatch,” you admitted, knowing that resisting would be futile. There wasn’t any information Sombra couldn’t extract from anyone, you included. If she wanted to know what game you were playing, she would find out, even if she had to hack the computer.

Still, it was bound to be weird, explaining to your girlfriend that you were playing a game that had her as a character. Especially because you were playing as her, which she had yet to notice.

Sombra raised an eyebrow. “An… Overwatch fan-game?” she asked, leaning closer to the screen so she could get a better look. “Interesting.”

With her watching so intently, you found yourself becoming nervous. Playing in front of other people was always awkward, and soon, your hands were fumbling over the keyboard, causing you to get eliminated. You frowned.

But Sombra just giggled, amused by your misfortune. “Looks fun,” she said. Then, after observing the screen some more, she paused. “Am I a character?!”

It was your turn to giggle. After all, the shock on her face was very funny. “Yeah, Sombra. You’re my favorite.” Your words made heat rise to the hacker’s face. As much as she tried to play it cocky at all times, you knew how to fluster her. 

But as soon as her nervousness appeared, it was gone, replaced by a confident smirk. “Aww, isn’t that sweet?” she cooed, reaching over to boop your nose.

You didn’t have time to reply before you respawned and went back to playing, with Sombra continuing to watch you, occasionally asking questions and cheering you on whenever you got a kill.

By the time the round was over, Sombra had a wide grin. “You should teach me to play, Mi Amor ,” she told you as Athena announced your victory. “Then we can play together.”

You smiled, going into the practice range. There wasn’t a single way you would rather spend your evening.

Genji

“Yo, Koibito!” Genji called out as he entered your apartment. A smile lit up your face, even as you didn’t turn away from your computer.

“Hi, Genji!” you replied, hearing your boyfriend’s soft footsteps approaching you. Sure enough, a few seconds later, a comforting presence settled in behind you, and two arms wrapped around your shoulders. Scarred lips pressed a soft kiss to the top of your head, making you blush. Genji’s sweetness was always adorable.

“Welcome home,” you greeted as he continued to pepper you with light kisses. You felt his smile against your skin.

Eventually, his attention was pulled away by the computer you were on. “What game is this, Love?” he asked, keeping you securely in his metallic arms. Not that you minded, of course. You never felt safer than you did when being held by Genji.

“Oh, uh… it’s a…” you trailed off, wondering how to explain the concept.

Before you could find a way to do that, however, Genji was pointing to the portrait at the bottom corner. “Is that me?” he asked, confusion clear in his tone.

“Yeah. This is, um, it’s like a fan-game.”

“About me?” The confusion was only amplified by your explanation. It was almost comical how shocked he sounded.

“About Overwatch, in general. You’re just one of the characters,” you admit. It sounded kinda creepy, now that you thought about it. Warmth spread across your face as you cringed, embarrassed.

Genji hummed thoughtfully. “How much did they get right?” he asked curiously. There was no judgement in his tone, which helped calm you down.

“Well, they did pretty well with your Blackwatch years. They might have even exaggerated how much angsty you were.” Your words were accompanied with a little giggle.

Genji huffed, but it was good-natured. “I wasn’t that angsty,” he lied through his teeth.

For a split second, you turned away from your game so you could stare at him. “Genji, Babe, you had Angela give you glowing red eyes. People who aren’t angsty don’t do that,” you pointed out, smiling when he sheepishly looked away at being caught in his dishonesty. 

“Shouldn’t you be focusing on your game instead of making fun of me?” he asked, lips pulled in a pout.

Giggling, you pressed a quick kiss to his cheek before returning to the game. “I can do both, y’know.”

“So mean,” Genji bemoaned playfully.

The rest of your round was spent in silence, you enjoying playing the game and Genji enjoying your company.

“Do you want to learn how to play?” You offered once you won, looking up at him hopefully.

His wide smile was answer enough.

  • Despite now knowing that you’re safe, Gabriel can’t relax
  • If anything, his fear gets worse, because he can handle attackers very easily
  • Feelings and providing comfort is another thing entirely
  • Still, he tries his best
  • Soon, he’s managed to wake you up and is gently holding you in his arms as you cry
  • At first, his touches are very delicate, as they always are, out of fear of hurting you
  • But you’re clinging to him so tightly that he has to increase his grip
  • He doesn’t produce body heat so he’s practically freezing, but you don’t seem to care
  • His words of comfort are a bit awkward, but still genuine
  • Eventually, you manage to calm down a bit, but Gabriel still keeps his hold on you as he asks about what happened
  • When you tell him the cause of your nightmare, guilt fills him to the brim
  • The fact that he made you have enough anxiety to cause a nightmare is something he hates
  • He’s never wanted to cause you any kind of pain
  • But he ignore his guilt in favor of trying to comfort you
  • He’s a bit gruff with his reassurances, but the effort is there
  • He tells you that he’s okay, that no one’s killed him yet and they won’t in the future, either
  • Slowly, he manages to lull you back to sleep
  • And even though you’re unconscious, he doesn’t let go of you, keeping you securely in his arms as he also nods off
  • For the next few nights, Gabriel is hesitant to leave your side
  • He wants to be there for you in case it happens again
  • So expect to spend a lot of time wrapped up in his arms



Cassidy

  • When he first wakes up, Cole is on his feet in a second, ready to defend you from whatever’s causing your screams
  • It takes him a few moments to realise that you’re not being attacked
  • But when he does, his demeanor changes instantly
  • He’s by your side in a second, kneeling by your side of the bed while he gently rouses you
  • The whole time, he’s trying to comfort you with honeyed words
  • “It’s alright, Darlin’. You’re okay. You’re okay. I’ve got you, Sweetheart”
  • When you wake up and practically leap into his arms, he’s got you
  • He maneuvers you onto the bed, careful to try and keep you secure in his arms
  • All the while pressing kisses to your face in between reassurances
  • The two of you are wrapped up in the covers in no time, and Cole’s letting you cry into his chest without complaint
  • He just strokes your hair and rubs your back as you let it all out
  • On the outside, he’s the picture of a perfect, calm boyfriend, but he’s very panicked on the inside
  • How does he help you? What do you need? Is he doing anything wrong?
  • But he shoves those thoughts to the back of his mind, focusing on helping you however he can
  • After you’ve calmed down a little, Cole gently asks what happened
  • He doesn’t know what to do when you tell him about his death in your dreams
  • But he reassures you that he’s tough, and very hard to kill
  • And he’ll do everything and anything he can to make sure he gets to come home to you at the end of each day
  • For the rest of the night, and even the following days, Cole barely lets you leave his arms
  • It comforts the both of you to be wrapped up together, so he’ll stay with for you as long as he can


Genji

  • Genji used to have horrible nightmares as well
  • Even now, he will occasionally have night terrors
  • So he knows what it’s like
  • When you wake him up with your screaming, he immediately knows what’s happening
  • As gently as he can, he wakes you up, not wanting you to be stuck in your nightmare
  • You immediately start crying and wrap your arms around him desperately
  • Genji takes it in stride, holding you close and rubbing comforting circles into your back
  • He encourages you to let it all out, to cry until you’re ready to stop
  • He’ll stay with you for however long that takes
  • When you calm down, Genji asks if you want to go back to sleep
  • He knows that sleep is important, but he also knows how scary it can be to rest again after a nightmare
  • So he doesn’t pressure you either way
  • If you choose to go back to sleep, he’ll promise to stay right there
  • If you choose to stay up, he’ll usher you to the living room and fix you a cup of hot cocoa
  • And then he’ll sit next to you and ask if you want to discuss it
  • Genji is super good at talking about things that trouble you, but he doesn’t force you to
  • But he encourages you to at least talk about it with someone
  • You eventually tell him what happened in your nightmare
  • He completely understands, and is very proud of you for telling him
  • His profession can be dangerous, and although he is skilled and half-machine, he’s not invincible
  • So he doesn’t give you any false promises
  • What he does do is tell you that he loves you, and promises to be as safe as possible
  • Once the two of you have talked about it, Genji will spend the rest of the day nearby, comforting and distracting you
  • He’ll be the best, most attentive boyfriend possible
  • And if the two of you end up falling asleep together in a cuddle puddle while watching idle T.V., that’s fine with him

Reaper

  • It had taken a lot of effort to find out when Gabriel’s birthday was
  • Even when he was a public figure, he kept personal details close to the chest
  • Eventually, though, you manage to worm it out of him
  • And when his birthday arrives, you’ve made him a homemade sweater
  • It’s a comfy black sweater made of wool that’s sure to keep him warm
  • Once you present your gift to Gabriel, he kinda just stares at it
  • After a few long seconds, he gently takes it from you and holds it in his hands
  • The way he touches it and looks at it is practically reverent
  • It’s been so long since someone’s given him a birthday gift, much less a homemade one, and he doesn’t know how to react
  • He loves it, of course, but he’s emotionally constipated and has no idea how to express that
  • Finally, after over a minute, he manages to speak. 
  • “Gracias, cariño.”
  • Then he pulls you into a tight hug, which is rare
  • He doesn’t usually initiate physical touch, but he’s so grateful and happy that he can’t help himself
  • Gabriel will always take really good care of his new sweater
  • He’s super careful not to let it get damaged or worn down
  • And it’s his favorite article of clothing
  • He wears it whenever he can
  • For your birthday, Gabriel wants to return the favor
  • It’s been a long time since he’s made clothing, but his skill has held up
  • He makes you a sweater that matches his
  • And whenever he sees you wearing it, he can’t help how proud and affectionate he gets

Sombra

  • It takes a very, very long time for Sombra to reveal her birthday to you
  • Not only is the day not a big deal in her opinion, but she’s also extremely private about those kinds of details
  • When she finally mentions it to you, you get to work creating her a nice shirt
  • It’s a purple t-shirt with her signature skull on it and a sweet message on the tag
  • Once her birthday arrives, she’s surprised you even remembered, and more surprised that you got her something
  • You present your gift and Sombra falls in love even more
  • She hasn’t gotten a gift since her parents died, which was decades ago
  • So getting something from you, especially a homemade something, is enough to make her heart beat fast
  • She tries to cover up her genuine emotions with a playful demeanor
  • “Aww, is this all for little old me? I’m flattered, Corazón.
  • But she also makes sure you really do know how much it means to her
  • Because this moment is one she’ll remember forever
  • Sombra will wear her new shirt everywhere
  • Talon’s leaders are sick and tired of her wearing them to meetings as she’s supposed to be dressed professionally
  • Sombra tells them to suck it
  • She wants everyone to see the amazing work you’ve done!
  • The times she wears it most are when you two are apart
  • When she’s on a mission or you’re away from home, she’ll sleep in it to remind her of you
  • Sombra just loves her new shirt almost as much as she loves you

Sombra

  • Sombra is already pretty skilled at gaming, even without her hacking skills
  • But with her hacking? She’s unstoppable
  • When you present your new game to Sombra, she immediately inspects the code
  • You try and stop her, because that’s cheating, but she can’t help it
  • It’s in her nature
  • After some nagging from you, she agrees not to actually hack the code
  • And the two of you get to playing
  • Sombra is really, really competitive when it comes to almost everything, including gaming
  • So, even if you’re on the same team, she finds any way she can to challenge you
  • Who can get a better score? Who can level up faster? Who can beat the other in a race?
  • And Sombra plays to win
  • She’s not going easy on you just because she loves you
  • But don’t worry; she’ll make sure you both have lots of fun

 

Cassidy

  • Let’s get one thing straight: Cole is terrible at video games
  • The only one he’s even remotely skilled at is Candy Crush, and that’s only because he’s addicted to it
  • But other than mindless phone games, he doesn’t have a single clue about anything related to video games
  • However, he is still very eager to play with you
  • After all, it can’t be that hard… right??
  • (It is that hard, at least for Cole)
  • Even with your help, he’s not doing great
  • It ends up being very humorous to watch his desperately struggle to play
  • Every time he makes a mistake he’ll pout and blame it on ping and/or lag
  • Nevermind the fact that Cole has no idea what ping even is
  • Still, despite his lack of skills, he really enjoys playing with you
  • It’ll probably end with Cole managing to accidentally crash the game while you laugh so hard you cry

 

Genji

  • Genji is the master of video games
  • He grew up going to the arcade every day, so his skills are finely honed
  • Even now, he really enjoys relaxing with a nice video game
  • So when you present him with a two player game, he’s ecstatic
  • In just minutes, Genji has managed to learn all the mechanics and get very far into the game
  • He’s all smug about it, too
  • If you’re even a little bit behind him, he’ll playfully tease you
  • No matter how much you question him about how he’s doing so well, Genji will refuse to tell you, all with a cocky smile on his face
  • “A magician never reveals his secrets, Dārin,” he’ll say through his giggles
  • With Genji’s help, the two of you beat the game in no time at all
  • And now that he knows you share his interest in video games, Genji will buy new ones constantly to play with you

Chapter Text

“I mean, at least no one’s staring at you,” you whisper to Gabriel as he sulks.

It’s been an hour since the two of you had been transported to this… fever dream of an alternate dimension, where your boyfriend is a video game character and you’re at a convention for the video game he’s featured in. So far, eight people have asked him for a picture, to which he begrudgingly complied, if only to avoid drawing attention.

“I would rather they stare,” Gabriel grumbles, kicking a pebble petulantly. Despite yourself, a chuckle slips from your lips. Gabriel glares at you, but it’s half-hearted.

“Oh my gosh, your cosplay is so cool!” says a girl behind you dressed as Sombra. You press your lips together to stop another laugh from escaping. Gabriel gives a grunt of acknowledgement. Then comes the questions you now expect. “Can I take a picture?”

When he doesn’t reply, you subtly shove your elbow into Gabriel’s side. You can hear the way he’s clenching his teeth when he says, “Sure.”

The Sombra cosplayer grins, pulling out an outdated phone. Or, you suppose, it’s not outdated in this universe. She quickly takes a selfie and wanders off, not before thanking you.

“This is unbearable,” Gabriel growls. His image is beginning to blur, wisps of smoke rising from his figure like it always does when he gets overwhelmed. Immediately, you reach out and lace your fingers together.

He freezes at your touch, mask turning in your direction. He normally doesn’t like PDA, but physical contact helps him remain in a solid form, and you can’t afford to have him evaporate in front of this audience. “You’re getting all… misty,” you inform him, squeezing his hand gently. “Besides, no one cares. They just think you’re cosplaying.”

Gabriel relaxes a bit at your reassurances, even wrapping his fingers around your hand, making sure not to scratch you with his talons. “...thanks,” he mumbles.

You smile at him, bumping your shoulders together. He huffs out a small, fond laugh.

Suddenly, something catches your eye. The whole convention is littered with small art booths, but you’ve been too preoccupied to notice most of them. However, one catches your eye because of the small Reaper plush it displays.

Immediately, you’re tugging Gabriel over to it, practically skipping in excitement. He doesn’t see what you’re heading for until it’s too late. “Wait, no--” he begins, but is cut off by you greeting the seller.

“Hi! How much for the Reaper plush?” you ask, grinning from ear to ear. Gabriel groans next to you, weakly trying to tug you away.

“C’mon, don’t do this,” he whispers. You ignore him as the cashier lists a price which you happily pay before snatching the plush and proudly presenting it to Gabriel. He pauses, observing the mini-him as well as your ecstatic expression. “You’re a menace.” There’s no heat to his tone, just mild annoyance.

“It’s so cute!” you exclaim. “Just like you.” As you speak, you press a kiss to his mask.

He half-heartedly bats you away. “I’m not cute,” he grumbles, crossing his arms over his broad chest. Before you can object, a small light in his ear turns on. Both of you straighten, recognising the activation of his comms. You can just about hear the voice in his ear.

“Sombra’s here, and she can get us back,” he says. “Thank God.”

You huff. “Can’t we stay a little longer? I want to see if there’s any more of these.”

“No.” His tone would terrify anyone else, but you know him well enough to know that he’s all bark, no bite. When it comes to you, that is. 

“Please?” you ask, trying to do your best puppy dog face.

“No,” Gabriel repeats.

You frown. “Pleaseeee?” It’s worth a try, you figure.

“I am not above dragging you out of here kicking and screaming,” Gabriel informs you. A deep sigh falls from your lips.

“Fine. I’ll come. But I’m keeping this forever,” you say, clutching the Reaper plush close to your chest.

You can almost see his disgruntled expression, even behind his mask. “Whatever.”

Unable to stop yourself from grinning, you allow your boyfriend to lead you out of the convention to a somewhat hidden area. Sombra is standing there, more exasperated than you’ve ever seen her.

“How did you guys manage this?” she demands. “I mean, really, alternate dimensional travel? You two are--” her words come to an abrupt halt as she straightens. “What… is that?” 

“It’s a Reaper plush,” you explain, showing Sombra the small toy. A devious little grin lights up her face. Before she can say or do anything, though, Gabriel growls, stalking over to Sombra.

“Let's just get out of here,” he mutters.

Rolling her violet eyes, Sombra grabs a small device from her pocket. “Fine. But I will be teasing you about this later,” she says in a no-nonsense tone. You laugh.

Gabriel mumbles something under his breath as Sombra presses a button and transports you both home, you still clutching onto the plush, thinking about where in your room you should put it.

  • Because an animated version of her is on the screen
  • What the hell?
  • You’re just laughing at her shocked expression
  • It’s not often you manage to surprise Sombra
  • “Uh, Cariño? What is this?”
  • “What do you mean I’m a video game character in another universe?!”
  • After you explain the situation to her, she actually finds it pretty funny
  • Sombra will immediately demand you show her every single cinematic and has a lot of fun watching them with you
  • After the two of you have finished your movie night, she will 100% start working on interdimensional travel

Tracer

  • Lena loves movie nights, especially with you
  • So, as soon as you mention the idea to her, she practically drags you to the nearest T.V.
  • However, you don’t put on a normal movie, like she’d been expecting
  • Instead, you put on an Overwatch cinematic
  • It’s really funny to watch Lena’s excitement turn to bafflement in the span of seconds
  • “Love? What movie did you say this was again?”
  • “Wait, slow down! There’s multiple universes? And I’m a video game character in one?! Oh, boy, Winston’s gonna have a field day with this!”
  • After her confusion has worn off, Lena thinks it’s awesome
  • How many people can say they’re a video game character in another universe?
  • Once the cinematic is over, expect Lena to ask about 1,000 enthusiastic questions about our universe
  • She’s just so curious about this world where she’s fictional!

Reaper

  • Gabriel is mostly indifferent to movies
  • They’re a bit too frivolous for him
  • But when you come up to him and ask him if he wants to watch a movie with you, he says yes anyway
  • Because while he may not enjoy watching movies, he does enjoy spending time with you
  • So he allows you to drag him over to the T.V. and cuddle up with him
  • As soon as you turn on the cinematic, though, Gabriel is stiff
  • What… is this?”
  • “I’m a… video game character. In another universe.”
  • After you explain the situation to him, he’s scarily silent
  • You actually start to get worried that he’s upset for some reason
  • But, really, Gabriel is just very, very exasperated
  • His life is so insane already, and this definitely does not help
  • After a while, he just sighs, rolls his eyes, and turns off the T.V.
  • He’s not watching a cartoon version of himself. You couldn’t pay him to do that
  • But he will spend the rest of the day with you, as long as you do anything else

  • No matter what, he watches every single one of your videos
  • And although he struggles to show his affection outwardly, he makes an effort to tell you how much he enjoys watching your creations
  • He’s honestly kinda bummed that he’s never able to film with you
  • A terrorist showing up in your videos isn’t a good idea, after all
  • But Gabriel will make an effort to help you with the filming process however he can

  • In the end, although he may be a bit awkward about it, Gabriel loves you and everything you create, including your videos

 

Cassidy

  • Cole is so out of touch with anything to do with technology

  • He’ll like all of your videos and leave comments and do everything he can to support you
  • And every time he sees you, he’s sure to drown you in compliments about your latest post
  • Cole is hesitant to help you film, because he’s worried about destroying your equipment with his lack of skill at technology
  • But he’ll offer tons and tons of moral support
  • Eventually, Cole makes his own Youtube channel
  • He never shows his face, because he’s an infamous vigilante, but he’ll record silly little videos of you
  • It’s mostly shots of you reacting to his terrible jokes or exaggerated flirting

Chapter Text

Reaper

  • When you suggest the idea to him, Gabriel is torn
  • Because on one hand, it’s a really fun and spooky idea, which he loves
  • But also, he does not want to be a person in a horror movie
  • In the end, you manage to convince him with minimal effort
  • His need for the adventure outweighs his exasperation
  • Besides, he’s powerful enough to protect both of you
  • When you start exploring, Gabriel is sure to make sure you stay safe
  • Old houses aren’t exactly great at being stable and safe, after all
  • So he basically hovers around you, making sure you don’t so much as trip
  • But, for as overprotective as he is, both of you have a lot of fun
  • It’s really cool to explore this place that’s been abandoned for so long together
  • From then on, Gabriel will be on the lookout for more places to explore with you

  • And neither of you would have it any other way

  • But when you ask her if she’d like to explore somewhere with you, she’s secretly excited
  • She undusts her entire kit, which includes snacks, safety gear, and science equipment to study any specimens that might have grown there
  • When the two of you finally depart on your journey, Moira is very pleased
  • It’s really fun, to enjoy this adventure with you
  • Plus, because there isn’t anyone around except for you, she can truly be herself and let her excitement show
  • The way she smiles the entire time makes everything better

Sombra

  • Sombra knows all the best skills for exploring abandoned houses
  • She spent most of her childhood squatting in empty buildings, so it’s only natural she’s good at it
  • With her help, it’s very easy to find and infiltrate whatever place you want
  • She brings plenty of snacks, so the two of you can have a nice time
  • But be careful, because Sombra will try and scare you to death
  • Every time she succeeds in startling you, she dies laughing
  • It’s even worse because she’s practically immune to being scared
  • Whenever you try and get your revenge, she doesn’t so much as flinch
  • But, despite her attempts at giving you a heart attack, you both have a great time
  • And it’s only a matter of time before you guys do this again
