  • Likes to sneak up on you, and pick you up from behind.
  • Well also come and place his chin on the top of your head.

  • This boy.
  • Jamie’s so nervous.
  • Put him in a room with explosives? Awesome! Have him in a room on fire? Cool! Dangle him off the edge of a cliff with dental floss? Sounds fun!
  • Put him anywhere near his S/O? Someone help him.
  • He loves you, he does! He just doesn’t know how to show it.
  • He doesn’t exactly have much experience in the romance department, so he’s kinda clueless.
  • So if you two are sharing a bed? 
  • Oh boy.
  • He’s gonna be practically shaking.
  • Partially because he’s so happy he can be so close to you! And partially because he’s terrified he’ll do something wrong.
  • You’ll honestly have to reassure him every second that ‘No, Jamie, you’re not doing anything wrong.’
  • But after a little while (and many reassurances), he’ll get more comfortable.
  • He’ll still be nervous, but not to the point he was before.
  • And honestly, he could talk with you for hours.
  • Loves!! Your voice!! Could listen to you forever!!
  • Tends to rant, so don’t be afraid to cut in whenever you can. He honestly will forget whatever he was trying to say as soon as he hears you talk.
  • The more tired he gets, the less sense he makes.
  • It will go from ‘Hey, wanna hear about this new idea I had for my Rip-Tire?’ to ‘Laser beams go nice with boom wheel.’
  • But will stay up as late as he can just to talk with you a little more.
  • By the time he falls asleep, you’ve probably discussed every topic in the world.

  • Just wants to treat you.

  • Is the best conversationalist. He’s basically like a therapist but better cause it’s free and he’s a good friend.

  • Never in a mean way! Honestly this pure soul couldn’t be mean if he tried.
  • He’s just very curious about how humans work!
  • He’ll also constantly check up on you, as humans require more maintenance than robots.
  • Have you eaten today? Had any water? Gotten fresh air? Exercised at all? Gotten eight hours of sleep? Ect.
  • Just wants to make sure you stay healthy!
  • If you’re an omnic, he’ll bond with you about your shared experiences from being the same species.
  • Honestly though, he doesn’t really care what body you come in. He likes you for you!
  • In conclusion Zenyatta is the best friend to ever roam the Earth and you can not change my mind thank you for coming to my Tedtalk.

Chapter Text

  • Has severe PTSD.
  • Often loses sight of where she is, and thinks that she is back in Talon.
  • Can’t handle when people touch her without warning her. It’s still second nature to try and kill whoever puts a finger on her.
  • Has nightmares often, unable to stop seeing the faces of the people she killed while she is asleep.
  • Always feels terribly guilty. She knows logically that she was brainwashed, that she didn’t really have control of her actions, but still can’t stop feeling like this was all her fault.
  • Overwatch agents are wary of her, if not outright aggressive at first.
  • Especially Tracer and Pharah.
  • Tracer has never, and will never forget Mondatta’s death, and still holds a grudge.
  • Pharah is still understandably upset over her mother’s 'death'.
  • They do know that she was brainwashed, but it’s still a difficult thing to get over.
  • After time, though, they will be able to overcome their grudges. They might not ever become BFFs, but at the very least, they will become civil.
  • And with even more time and work, they might become friends.
  • She'll probably do therapy with Zenyatta, similar to Genji after his Blackwatch days
  • It’s going to be a loooooong road to recovery. And there’s no shortcuts to getting better. So she’s going to be messed up for a while.
  • But after hard work, time, and help from the people around her, she will recover as best she can.

  • Reinhardt just wants attention

  • I don’t think he has any concept of the future.
  • There is just now and the glory of single-handedly defeating the enemy
  • Everyone in Overwatch has the friendship bracelets he made them
  • Because he makes the best bracelets and that is a fact
  • Is the best storyteller in the entire universe.
  • No one knows which of his stories are real and which ones are fake.
  • Did he really fight off a grizzly bear with one hand tied behind his back? Is it true that he took out a whole team of Null-Sector Omnics? Is he lying about the time he prevented a bank robbery by beating up the fifteen robbers with just a teacup? Who knows?!
  • AMAZING WITH KIDS
  • Honestly he would’ve made a great teacher in another universe. 
  • Can you just!!! Imagine!!!! Him with a bunch of little children!!!

  • Would also coach all of the sports teams
  • Idk i just have a lot of opinions about this
  • Is a Drama Queen™
  • Gets a papercut and proceeds to complain about it for the rest of the week.
  • “Someone ate the rest of the cookies. Why have I been betrayed like this?”
  • Broke his favorite shirt and pouted about it for a month

  • Come on she's just too pure and cute!
  • Loves to learn
  • She’s incredibly intelligent when it comes to book smarts.
  • But when it comes to street smarts and/or social skills, the poor thing is at a bit of a loss.
  • She gets an A+ for effort, though!
  • She just tries so hard okay
  • Her greatest enemy is not Talon, or Efi’s enemies, or anything like that.
  • No
  • Her greatest enemy is small talk
  • It’s kinda adorable honestly
  • “So did you catch the sports game last night?”
  • “Orisa, darling, we’re in the middle of a battle.”
  • “The seahawks were rad to the max!”
  • She loves art!
  • Specifically she loves making art
  • It usually looks like a kindergartener's school project, but it’s still cool
  • And covered in glitter
  • Efi probably hangs it up on the fridge
  • In general she gets along with kids.
  • She’s a perfect mix of responsible parent and fun kid

  • So nice
  • And sweet
  • And i love her so much

Chapter Text

  • Oh boy
  • Lemme tell you
  • When Genji falls for someone, he’s such a sweetheart that it’ll rot your teeth
  • I’m talking flowers, chocolates, weekly anniversary cards, the whole shebang
  • Trust me, if he likes you, you’ll know.
  • He’s very cheesy with his gifts and dates.
  • Most of them are the classics: Dates at carnivals, coffee shops, picnics in parks on spring days, going dancing
  • It’s a tad bit cliche, but he always makes them amazing and unique
  • I mean, if you go ballroom dancing, chances are he’s going to convince you to do the macarena with him instead
  • He’s very self conscious about his body, and often thinks that him being a cyborg makes him less worthy of love, so that’s one of the reasons why he focuses on you in the relationship
  • But show him that you’re accepting of his body, and he’ll just melt
  • He’s the biggest flirt you’ve ever seen
  • Honestly
  • Like
  • I don’t think he knows how to not flirt
  • He’s just a sap

Chapter Text

  • Hmmmmmm… where to start?
  • He loves to touch you.
  • Honestly, he does that whatever size you are, but when you’re smaller, he gets a tad bit protective.
  • Nothing extreme, just a hand on your shoulder to make sure you’re okay
  • He also gets scared sometimes about hurting you
  • He’s so huge and strong that he’ll be so extra gentle with you
  • Hurting you would kill him
  • But he knows that your size doesn’t mean your weak!
  • Still, he’s a little cautious, especially in the beginning of your relationship.
  • Loves to!! Tease you!!
  • If you ask him to give you something, he’s gonna hold it out of your reach, and demand kisses in return for the object
  • Rests his chin on the top of your head constantly
  • Just completely drapes himself over you sometimes tbh
  • He’s like a big, soft blanket
  • Gives you shoulder rides!!!!!!!
  • Sometimes, when he’s feeling especially cheeky, he’ll full-on pick you up to talk to you, so you’re face-to-face
  • Finds you adorable when you get annoyed
  • Especially if you do stuff like cross your arms and/or stomp a foot
  • You’re just like a cute little cupcake to him
  • He just adores you

Chapter Text

  • He’s secretly a bit of a softie
  • Now, don’t get me wrong here, he won’t hesitate to stick it to the people he doesn’t like
  • And he is rather violent at times
  • But he’s also like a big teddy bear
  • Kids love him
  • He’s large enough that they can crawl all over him!!!!!
  • He acts annoyed whenever they do it, but deep down, he kinda likes it
  • It makes him feel more like a human
  • Granted, he grumbles if it happens in public.
  • He has a reputation to uphold
  • But even then, he won’t kick them off.
  • He’s also a secret fan of pop music
  • He has an ipod and headphones that he constantly wears
  • Everyone assumes he’s listening to hardcore Rock and Roll or something
  • Nope.
  • It’s Beyonce’s new single
  • All the single ladies, all the single ladies, all the single ladies, all the single ladies, put your hands up!’
  • He’d rather die than admit it, though.
  • Once Junkrat tried to grab one of the earbuds so he could listen
  • And Roadie tackled him out a window.
  • Other than his Ipod, Roadhog has next to nothing in terms of personal possessions
  • It’s a habit ingrained in him from life on the run
  • He has a backpack, a few pairs of clothes, a water bottle, and nothing else.
  • It’s hard to get him to open up at all
  • It’s like trying to break through brick walls with a toothpick
  • But eventually, if he does warm up to you, he’s a nice person
  • And very protective
  • He’s lost a lot in his life, so when he cares for something/someone, he makes sure that he won’t lose that, too
  • More of a freedom fighter than a terrorist, really
  • Yeah, by definition, he’s a terrorist, but he does it more as a way of rebelling against corrupt organizations
  • Almost like a Robin Hood, just slightly less noble.
