In a time of global crisis, an elite international task force known as Overwatch was formed. Soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities: together, they ended the Omnic Crisis and restored peace to a war-torn world. The heroes of Overwatch kept peace for a generation, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. After many years, Overwatch became troubled, and finally disbanded. World conflict began to rise again. Overwatch was gone…but the world still needed heroes. You are a young man who's been many things: adventurer, treasure hunter, freedom fighter, and international criminal. Recently you encountered the re-formed Overwatch: a grand title for two ex-agents, Winston and Tracer, operating as outlaws out of an abandoned Watchpoint. Despite their down-and-out-status, or perhaps because of it, you were inspired to join them. You left your old life behind to become the first recruit of the new Overwatch.Now you and Tracer are travelling the globe, defending the people of the world from harm and searching for potential agents to rebuild Overwatch. The world needs heroes. Maybe you can be one of them.Updates: https://twitter.com/ravenkingquestsPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Overwatch%20QuestDiscord: https://discord.gg/t7DHUPk
Previously on Overwatch Quest:Athena alerted you to a Titan-class Omnic rampaging through a city -- and that the engineer Torbjorn was already on his way, alone. When your strike team landed, the local omnics and drones were overcome by a corruption hack. While Reinhardt and Mercy defended the civilians, Tracer helped you get inside the gigantic mech. There you helped Torbjorn get to the cockpit and put a stop to the rampage, and rescued him from a poison gas trap. Mission accomplished, you returned to the Watchpoint.
Another morning at Watchpoint Gibraltar. You watch the sunrise with a mug of steaming coffee in your hands, enjoying the feeling of the caffiene working its way into your nerves, and the morning sun on your face.Four times you've gone out with Tracer in the Aurora, and four times you've come back with objectives cleared and an agent for the new Overwatch. Maybe you're starting to get the hang of this.Of course, three out of those four times there's been a battle, and the agent came away wounded. Well, maybe there's room for improvement too.No immediate crisis to deal with. You think about what to do with your morning.>Datapad: Talk to Athena about world news, agent status, and base information.>Forge: Check on progress with your upgraded armor.>Garage: Practice with the training bots.>Laboratory: Talk to Winston.>Medbay: See how Torbjorn is faring after the attack.>Server Room: Check on Bastion's scan.

Raven, I found a photo of you IRL.
>>1033827>>1033832>>1033838>>1033841>>1033860>>1033882You head back down the stairs to Mercy's improvised medbay. It's still mostly whatever medical supplies she brought from her hospital in Zurich, and some old cots to lie on.Torbjorn is sleeping on a cot while hooked up to a biotic respirator. Mercy is already here, dressed in dark slacks and a white sweater, typing on a datapad. She looks up as you enter. "Hello, Seeker. Come to check on my patient?">Yeah. How is he?>I wanted to check on you too.>I got zapped by those defense drones. Can you have a look?>Something else.
>>1033901>Yeah. How is he?>I got zapped by those defense drones. Can you have a look?
>>1033901>>Yeah. How is he?
>>1033901>Yeah. How is he?Don't do it, anons
>>1033901>I wanted to check on you too.
>>1033901>>Yeah. How is he?>I got zapped by those defense drones. Can you have a look?
>>1033901>Yeah. How is he?and>I got zapped by those defense drones. Can you have a look?
>Yeah. How is he?
>>1033901>I got zapped by those defense drones. Can you have a look?
>>1033901>Yeah. How is he?>I got zapped by those defense drones; not that it is serious or anything. Can you have a look?
"Yeah. That and myself. I got zapped by some defence drones inside that mech. It's not serious, but I was wondering if you could take a look.""Certainly." She puts down the chart, takes out her portable scanner. "Where does it hurt?""Here," you say, tapping your chest where you got laser beamed by two of those drones."Show me, will you?"You just now realize you're going to have to take off your shirt for this. Okay. No problem. Act cool. Just another visit to the doctor. You pull your shirt over your head, set to the side, and casually glance down, hoping all that nutrient paste didn't go to your gut. You've still got abs. You breath a private sigh of relief.Mercy takes out her scanner and begins to examine your wounds."How's Torbjorn?" you ask her."He's stable, for now. Vitals and GCS are within standard limits. The biotic respirator will heal his lungs, given time. It would be faster and safer to grow him a replacement pair, but I haven't the technology here." She meets your eyes. "Perhaps if I had an actual medbay, with decent equipment.""Yeah, that would be nice."She arches an eyebrow."Wait ... me? What do you expect me to do about it? I don't control finances--""You're right. Winston is the only one with the access codes to our remaining funds. But he lets Athena take care of finances for him. And ..." She glances around, then looks back to you. "Rumor around here has it you've got her ear.">That's true.>I don't know about that.>I can't help you.>Something else.
>>1033957>"I legitimately have no idea why people are obeying me. I'm just rolling with it honestly."
>>1033957>>That's true.I'll... see what I can do.
>>1033957>Laugh>I don't know about that.
>>1033957>>Something else.I'm not about to start making decisions behind the rest of the teams back. Make sure everyone else is down with it first.
>>1033957>"I legitimately have no idea why people are obeying me. I'm just rolling with it honestly.">"I will see what i can do"How much money do we have in our bank account anyways?
>>1033971Changing to this.
>That's true I'll see what I can do.
>>1033957>>I don't know about that.Angela, we're not miracle workers--for the time, we're just gonna hafta make do.
>>1033957>>Something else."I'll see what I can do and if that dosent work i'll steal the equipment from people who don't need it."
>>1033957>"I will see what i can do"
>>1033971I support this.
>>1033971Changing to this
"That seems to be true," you say. "I legitimately have no idea why anyone is taking orders from me. I'm just rolling with it.""You're decisive without being reckless. According to Tracer and Reinhardt, you make sound tactical decisions in combat. And you have a way with people." She shrugs. "That's already more than I can say for anyone else on this base. Winston is too kind to make hard decisions. Lena and Reinhardt are brave but emotional, and that makes them predictable. Jesse is a fine soldier, but not a commander. Who's left? Myself?" She laughs. "Can you imagine?""Damn. And you're normally so compassionate."She smiles. "A doctor must know when to be compassionate and when to be practical."You think of the two beams on her staff, the healing beam and the damage boost. "I take your meaning."Mercy engages some kind of biotic device near your wound. A small yellow field extends from the device to your flesh, and you feel the pain being soothed. After a few moments of this, she steps back. "Finished. It should be healed shortly, without a scar.""Thanks," you say, pulling your shirt back over your head. "About the medical equipment, I don't want to make any promises. No idea how much we have in the bank right now. I'll see what I can do without stealing any equipment, or going behind the team's back.""Of course. I ask only that you check into it. It's for the good of the team, after all. You wouldn't want to return from combat with holes in your vital organs, only to find we still haven't got regrow tanks, would you?""No, that would be bad," you admit.>Ask Mercy something about herself>Check in with Athena>Go to the Server Room

You decide to try and make some conversation, and ask Mercy something about herself.>Past: Life before Overwatch.>Present: Living situation.>Future: Hopes for the new team.>Something elseOr you could ask her about something more casual, like ...>Favorite food>Favorite movie>Hobbies>Something else
>>1034104>Past: Life before Overwatch.>HobbiesJust do both
>>1034104>Past: Life before Overwatch>Future: Hopes for the new team.
>>1034104>HobbiesLet's work on getting them waifu wars started, yeah?
>>1034104>Future: Hopes for the new team.Seems pertinent for the team leader to get the opinions of the team.
>>1034104Actually, change >>1034111 to >>1034107
>>1034104>Future: Hopes for the new team.>Favorite movieMaybe once a fortnight we can have a movie night.
>>1034104>>Past: Life before Overwatch.>HobbiesBoth is good
>>Ummm>>Past: Life before Overwatch.>HobbiesGoddammit Fareeha, get off your Canuck-Egyptian ass and get over here to take this Swiss Miss off our hands already
>Past: Life before Overwatch>Future: Hopes for the new team.
>>1034125Nah, she can have Tracer after Mercy replaces her, though.
>>1034125>>1034147how about we get all the waifu's though?
>>1034169Harems have become a little too common in quests
>>1034176Hasn't stopped anybody before though.
>>1034176>>1034183At least, agreed on the 'no harems' part. I've not read enough quests to properly agree with there being too many
"So doc," you say. "What sort of things do you get up to when you're not healing wounded Overwatch agents? Got any hobbies? Interests? Things you do in your spare time?""Er ..." Mercy blushes slightly. "W-well, I ... clean my apartment? I water the plants--""Oh, man! Are you serious? You don't have any, do you?"Her brows furrows. "I've been slightly busy as a world pioneer in biotic research and battlefield medicine. My developments are still at the forefront of life-saving technology. The rest of the time, I've either been out in the field being shot at, or more recently, teaching at the university. Where should I find time in there for a "hobby" as you put it?""Sorry, doc," you say, laughing. "But that's no good. How can you save humanity and then not appreciate its culture? What about when you were a kid? Did you do anything then?""The standard sorts of things, I suppose," she says. "Piano lessons. Ballet. If nothing else, I learned to appreciate the value of elegant precision. I lost interest in all that when I discoved medicine.""Well ... we should have a movie night or something. It would be good for you to enjoy yourself and relax.">In fact, let's do it tonight.>I'll see you later.

>>1034201>Movie Night tonight then!>Go see BastionAny ideas on what type of movie everyone would like?
"Let's do it tonight," you say. "I've got some of my favorites on my drive ready to go."Mercy's eyes light up. "That sounds great! I'm sure everyone could use a chance to unwind.">Actually, I was thinking just the two of us.>Yeah, it'll be great.
>>1034235>Yeah, it'll be great
>>1034234Superhero Scifi, Mystery Science Theater quality
>>1034235>Yeah, it'll be great.

>>1034235>>Yeah, it'll be great.>GO TALK TO BASTION
>Yeah, it'll be great.
>>1034235>>Yeah, it'll be great.
>>1034235>>Yeah, it'll be great.Does Torb know about Bastion yet?
>>1034235>Yeah, it'll be great.>>1034239>>1034244My only concern is if Bastion comes along and it's too violent we might "upset" him; and its a bad idea to upset a robot with a minigun strapped to it's back
>>1034235>>Yeah, it'll be great.We need good popcorn kino. I think Lena would get a good hoot outta this movie, maybe.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vw61gCe2oqI
>>1034235>that will be greatnot so fast mercyfags
>>1034268But Anon, what could possibly go wrong?
>>1034268yeah we should wait tell Bastion has gotten over his ptsd for the most part until inviting him to movie night
>>1034262Now this anon gets it.
>>1034235>Yeah, it'll be great.We got to take it slow. Let's just sit next to her and share popcorn.
>>1034276We just need to pick a movie without gun's or explosions.
>>1034283true, how about a slasher film then?
>>1034289Let's just watch a comedy or a romantic comedy . That way not only will we not trigger Bastion, but everyone will have their spirits lifted.
>>1034295Why not a romantic slasher comedy?
>>1034289That should work since i doubt Bastion combat programming is set to go off over human screaming, something based in the medieval period should also be acceptable.
"Yeah, it'll be great," you say. "I'm gonna go check in on the Bastion. See you tonight!""See you then." Mercy smiles and waves to you as you leave the medbay. You feel like you grew a little closer to her.You head down the winding path through the hangar, under the Aurora, and hear a couple of gunshots. You freeze for a moment before you recognize the sound as the Peacekeeper revolver. You enter the garage and find McCree practicing his quick-draw on the training bots."Howdy," he says, tipping his hat to you. "Seeker, was it? Thought I'd work the rust off my aim here.""Good stuff," you say. For some reason you feel really anxious to see Bastion, so you leave that conversation for later.In the Server Room you find Bastion. He stands in his usual spot, tilting his head at the little yellow bird who's perched on his finger. At your arrival, the bird tweets and lifts into the air, circling around the room near the ceiling. Bastion gives you his "Hello" beep, his central eye flickering."Hey, Bastion. How you doing?" You wait a moment, to no response. "Right, still on yes or no questions only. Do you feel good? Still happy to be here?"Bastion beeps once for yes.You check the nearby terminal. "These scan results are just about finished ... I can't make any sense of this stuff, though.">Ask Winston about the scan results.>Ask Athena about the scan results.>Ignore the scan for now, just talk to Bastion.
>>1034295That's something I can agree with. Comedy should be the way to go.
>>1034305>>Ignore the scan for now, just talk to Bastion.
>>1034305>Ask Athena about the scan results.
>>1034305>Ignore the scan for now, just talk to Bastion
>>1034305>Ask Winston about the scan results and tell him about movie night
>>1034310>>1034299So a MST3K work for you guys?
>>1034321Well of course. MST3K is always a good pick. And might allow Raven to throw a few meta jokes at us.
>>1034305>Ignore the scan for now, just talk to Bastion.
>Ignore the scan for now, just talk to Bastion.Then >Ask Winston about the scan results.
>>1034305>Ignore the scan for now, just talk to Bastion.So how you feeling? You want to watch a movie with us tonight?I hope we can watch Finding Nemo. Comedy and it should be good at avoiding Bastion's PTSD.
>>1034321MST3K is a given.
>>1034305>>Ask Athena about the scan results.
>>1034314>>1034319>>1034326>>1034329>>1034331>>1034333>mfw the most popular social link is the robot who can't talk
>>1034391That's what makes it pure.
>>1034391it's like the most popular social link is the one with the fucking fox
>>1034391Well, you're the top tier waifu. We're just trying to get Newgame + so we can start your route.
>>1034391>Thinking this wasn't the most predictable routeIgnoring the fact that we're trying to prevent any future PTSD moments, he's lovable and should stay pure.So no waifuing.
>>1034403>This whole quest was just to build a social link with the QM
>>1034305>Ignore the potentially plot inducing scans and attempt to woo bastionNah, actually>Ask Winston about the scans
>>1034391Yea i don't quite get it either, i mean i like him and all, but i don't get the devotion he's getting.
>>1034407no waifuing bastion or no waifuing in general? cause I have a big problem with one of those.
>>1034391He is the one that we can count on to listen.
>>1034391Bastion's love is PUUUUUREE!
>>1034305>Ignore the scan for now, just talk to Bastion.Anyone know of a way we can communicate with this bot on a more complex level than yes/no questions? Binary? Hexadecimals? Sign language?
>>1034428not one seeker would understand
>>1034416No waifuing Bastion.And no waifuing in general if it isn't towards Mercy.
>>1034436what if there's multiple waifus and Mercy is one of them?
>>1034428Binary would be our best bet, considering he is a combat droid, i doubt he would had been programmed with anything more complex. Hey are his normal beeps already in binary?
>>1034428Anyone remember how in Breaking Bad, that old guy that couldn't speak communicated by having someone go through a list of letters and chiming a bell everytime the next letter of the word he wanted to say came up? We could attempt a similar system.
>>1034446Does that mean Seeker is Tuco?
You'll ask Winston and Athena about the scan results later. For now, you pull up the other chair beside Bastion and sit down. "Hope you've settled in okay, pal." you say to him.Beep."Did McCree take you for a walk yesterday?"Beep."Good, good. Me and the others have to go out on missions sometimes. But we'll try to always leave someone here with you." Partly because you might still have a Talon sleeper program embedded in you somewhere, you think but don't say."Going to have a movie night tonight, bring the whole team. I don't know if you can come, but I'll try to make it happen." You think about Torbjorn in the medbay. "We've got a guy on the team now who might not be thrilled at the idea of hanging out with an Omnic. Or working with one. But I'm going to do what I can to keep you on the team. We'll cross that bridge when we get to it. I'll figure something out. Guess I can add managing the anti-Omnic prejudices of agents to my list of shit to worry about."Not exactly sure why I'm the one dealing with all this. When I joined Overwatch, I figured I'd be the new guy, you know? The rookie. I'd just go where they told me to, and shoot Omnics -- not you, buddy, I mean bad guy Omnics -- and I'd work my way up. Get responsibilities gradually. Maybe someday make strike commander, feel like I earned being a big shot. Instead, somehow I'm in charge from the first day I join. It's not official, but they're all listening to me. I don't get it. I'm not a leader."Bastion beeps twice."Huh? Are you saying I'm, er ... not-not a leader? That I am one?"Beep."Geez. I don't know what to say that. Heh. I think a robot's going to make me blush." You reach out and pat the Bastion on the shoulder. "You're all right, Bastion. I think you're the only one around here I can count on to listen. Oh, right. I got you something ..."(Continued)
>>1034442No, as tempting as it is to Harem it, Mercy is the only waifu>>1034454>Bastion believes in usMy heart. How can a robot be so based, I love this guy.
You take out a blocky, colorful datapad. "It's a kidpad. Remember I told you about this? Human kids use this to learn basic stuff. They learn how to read, how to count, what sound animals make ..." You press the cartoon pig on the nose and it oinks happily. "It doesn't really make sense, a robot learning like a human kid. But if you can understand me, clearly you can already process human language, so you should be able to synth a voice with Athena's help. So none of this makes sense. Might as well try something basic and see what happens."You hand over the kidpad. Bastion accepts it with his single hand, looks down at it."I'll let you try it out," you say, standing up. "See you later."As you head out of the server room, you glance back to see Bastion lay the pad down on a nearby table and carefully touch it with his finger. A cow moos.>Datapad: Athena>Forge: Brigitte + Reinhardt>Garage: McCree>Laboratory: Winston>Go relax by yourself.
>>1034446That seems kinda time consuming, though it would work.>>1034445Binary is nice, too, but I think our best bet would be something involving hexadecimals.

You walk out of the Server Room into the Garage. McCree is still there, practicing his headshots and fan-the-hammers against the training bots. He tips his hat to you again, then quickly turns and fires. You see one of the bots get its head blown to pieces. Whoever invented self-reassembling training bots was a smart man, you think.You watch McCree reload his gun, thinking about what to talk to him about.>Past: Joining the first Overwatch>Present: Thoughts on the current situation, or what comes next.>Future: Hopes for the new team.>What's with the whole cowboy thing?

"Looks like you're in fighting shape again," you observe."Yessir," says McCree. "All patched up." He aims at another training bot and blasts it. "Feels a mite weird, being back here at the Watchpoint, getting back into it and all. Long time since I did a proper "mission." But at least I should be healthy as a horse."You take a seat in the chair of a nearby forklift. "What do you hope you end up doing? Right now we've been concentrating on recruiting the other agents. But once we've got enough people that we feel like, okay, the team is ready. What do you want to come after that?"He shrugs. "Bust the heads o' some bad guys. That's about as far as I thought ahead." He aims again, shoots another robot. All of them are currently in repair state, so he holsters the gun.He turns towards you, lights a cigar, and sticks his thumbs in his belt. "When I went after the Deadlocks, it reminded me what kinda scumbags are in this world. People who don't want nothin' but chaos and disaster. Back in the day, when I lived that life, there was a certain code. Now they got no code, no honor, no nothin'. They don't even want money. They just want to burn. So who's gonna do something about it?""Me and you," you say."Damn right, kid." He nods, satisfied, and puffs on his cigar."Hey, I've got an idea," you tell him, standing up. "When those bots fix themselves, why don't we have a little shooting contest? See who's the better gun."McCree says, "Huh. You think that's a good idea, do you, kid?" He shakes his head. "Dunno if you're cocky or stupid, but either way, I gotta admire your brass." He draws the Peacekeeper, twirls it once. "Well I ain't one to back down from a challenge. Yer on.">First 3 d10 rolls determine the results of the shooting contest

>>1034563>>1034564>>1034565While waiting for the training bots to repair themselves, you find some old glass bottles in a crate behind the forklift. When the bots are back online, you set two against the back wall, and hand each of them two bottles."Okay," you say, walking back to a good distance. "They're each going to throw the bottles into the air. Shoot your bot's bottles, then headshot the bot." You pull out your weapon and spin it into gun form. "Sound good?""Works for me," says McCree. "Ready when you are."The two of you line up.You wonder if he's going to say that thing he says. Probably doesn't for a practice shoot-off against the recruit.You say, "Go!"The robots throw their bottles into the air. You blast the first bottle and headshot the robot with good speed and accuracy, but the shot you meant to hit the second bottle goes wide. You try to catch it before it lands with a couple more shots, but miss those too, and it shatters on the ground.McCree fires three times and nails three targets in no time at all, like it was the most natural thing in the world, easy as breathing or sleeping."Goddamit," you mutter.McCree guffaws. "I think ya forgot one, there, kid." He reloads his gun and holsters it. "Weren't so bad, though. You were fast. Just gotta work on that aim. Give it practice, you'll be fine."From someone of his caliber, that's probably a compliment. "Thanks, I think. Maybe I'll have my revenge some other time. For now, I gotta go talk to Winston. Oh, hey, right. One last thing. What do you think about a movie night tonight?""Huh." McCree scratches at his head under his hat. "Why not? Can't hurt to raise morale and all. Let me know what you figure out."(Continued)
>>1034588That went about as well as I expected it to.
You pull out your datapad as you start walking down the valley towards the lab. "Athena, how's tricks?""Good day, Seeker. How can I be of service?">What's our budget like?>Where could I set up a movie projector and some seats?>Is there some way we could build Mercy a real medical facility?>What results on the Bastion scan?>World event status?>Something else.
>>1034593>>What results on the Bastion scan?>Is there some way we could build Mercy a real medical facility?>Where could I set up a movie projector and some seats?
>>1034593>What results on the Bastion scan?>World event status?>Where could I set up a movie projector and some seats?>Do we even have a movie projector?
>>1034593>>What's our budget like?>>What results on the Bastion scan?>>World event status?
>>1034593>What's our budget like?>Where could I set up a movie projector and some seats?>What results on the Bastion scan?
>>1034481as if you try to make it sound like a bad thing...>>1034593>>Where could I set up a movie projector and some seats?>>Is there some way we could build Mercy a real medical facility?>>What results on the Bastion scan?goddamn, all of this is important
"What results on the Bastion scan?" you ask her."Inconclusive," she says."What the hell? Aren't you almost finished?""Ninety-eight point nine percent. The data remains inconclusive. I am no closer to determining the cause of the Bastion's supposed sentience. A great deal of his programming was overwritten seemingly at random, and I have not determined anything useful from it. I am experiencing a state humans might refer to as "frustration."""You and me both, lady," you say. "How does this make any sense? Any Omnic should be able to do advanced math or synthesize speech, but I'm teaching it to speak with one beep for yes, two beeps for no. Just ... keep trying, okay? Try to find out anything. For now, let's tackle something easier." You stop and look around. "Is there someplace around here I can set up a movie theater? Like a projector and some seats. I want to have a movie night. Get some team bonding going.""There are two functioning rooms available in the Watchpoint," Athena says, showing you a blue map of the facility. Two rooms out by the launch pad flash in brighter blue. "Either of these would be suitable. One of the holo-projectors can be adapted for two-dimensional entertainment display.""Okay, either of those should be fine. I'll set that up later." You notice the other room out by the launchpad, formerly empty, now marked "Medbay". "Still not much of a hospital. Athena, do we have it in the budget to upgrade that room, get Mercy some proper equipment?""It is possible. Our currency reserves are limited, but that expense lies within the budget. However, you'd have to secure additional funds somehow to make any other significant upgrades to the base.">Order the Medbay upgrade.>Save the money.>Ask what else you could use the money for.
>>1034616>Ask what else you could use the money for.
>>1034616>Ask what else you could use the money for.We need to ask how OW got its money before and how we can get more money.
>>1034616>>Ask what else you could use the money for.Keep options open.
>>1034616>>Order the Medbay upgrade.Also>Update on world events?
>>1034616>Ask what else you could use the money for.>Order the Medbay upgrade.We're going to do it eitherway, just... make sure she tells Winston beforehand, so there'll be no surprises
>>1034624This is good
>>1034616>Order the Medbay upgrade.>Transfer our funds into the Overwatch fund>Use our "other" contacts in the outback to get a deal on the med-bay upgrade's
>>1034616>Ask what else you could use the money for.>Anything important in terms of world events?
"Okay, I think I'm going to order the upgrade," you say. "But just in case, what else could I use it for?"Athena shows you a schematic of a medium-size transport aircraft and some kind of engineering equipment. "Priorities are MV-261 Orca aircraft for increased transport capability, and equipment upgrades for engineers.""Where does this money come from, anyway?" you ask her."Before Overwatch disbanded, I took the liberty of hiding some of our reserve U.N. funding in accounts which only I can access.""That's ... devious of you. What have you been spending it on?""Peanut butter and bananas, mostly.""Right ..." Something occurs to you. "So you and Winston. Have you been living here at the Watchpoint the whole time? Ever since Overwatch disbanded?""Correct.""But that's ..." You count the years in disbelief. "That's a long time for anyone to spend alone. Even with company as charming as yours, Athena," you add."You flatter me," she says. "Winston has ignored my warnings about psychological vulnerability in isolation. Despite my predictions, he has proved surprisingly resilient.""You tried to get him to go outside and make friends, eh?""Emphasis on tried."You arrive at the door to Winston's laboratory. "I guess it's good he has Overwatch again."(Continued)
>>1034652Jeez man poor Winston. We need to have some 1 on 1 time to hang out with him.
>>1034657Basketball or Hockey.
>>1034659Not sure, what we'd do with him but let's save hockey for Lucio
"Okay, before I go in. World event update?"Athena shows you a world map. The markers in Arizona and Sweden have disappeared, while those in Japan and Australia remain. A new one has appeared in Brazil. "Increasing anti-corporate unrest in Rio de Janeiro," she says. "The Junkers continue their crime spree in Australia. Fareeha Amari received a commendation for preventing the Anubis outbreak in Egypt.""Pharah," you say, recognizing the name. "I've run into her before a couple times, when Helix Security showed up on my jobs ...">We could have been friends, if we weren't on opposite sides of the law.>She was good, but not good enough.>I hate that bitch.>Something else.
>>1034663>>She was good, but not good enough.
>>1034663>>I hate that bitch.CONFLICT
>>1034663>We could have been friends, if we weren't on opposite sides of the law.>She was good, but not good enough.That third option,holy shit Raven
>>1034663>We could have been friends, if we weren't on opposite sides of the law.
>>1034663>She was good,>And tall>And she muscular...>Does, uh, she need any help or something?
>>1034663>>We could have been friends, if we weren't on opposite sides of the law.Then a pause. Follow with>I hate that bitch.Also LET US GET BOOPMASTER BAE
>>1034663... I'm with >>1034669
>>1034666Changing from this to>>1034669
>>1034669>>1034671Guys no, what if Anna finds out?
>>1034673Actually forget what I said, the sexual tension if we go this route is probably gonna' be amazing.Going with >>1034669
Phara will be bro-teir with possible waifu later.
>>1034663>Of course she got a commendation>Damn Glory-hound.>I hate that bitch.
>>1034663>>We could have been friends, if we weren't on opposite sides of the law.
>>1034663Changing >>1034667 to >>1034669
>>1034673Then Sniper Gran-Gran will just casually toss shade at the both of us and be not-too-subtle about wanting grandchildren.
"We could have been friends, if we weren't on opposite sides of the law," you say with a sigh. You pause for a moment. Then you say, "I hate that bitch." Of course she got a commendation. Glory hound.Athena's personality analysis graph appears. "Why Seeker," she says. "Voice analysis there was most intriguing. Perhaps there was a ... personal incident?" You think you hear a smug note in Athena's voice synthesizer.>Yeah, there was.>No, there wasn't. (Lie)>No, there wasn't.
>>1034688>No, there wasn't. (Lie) (badly)
>>1034688>>Yeah, there was.>>1034690fuck that shit just say yes
>>1034688>No, there wasn't. (Lie)Do we get to decide what it was? Cause I'm voting for they banged each other and then she found out who Seeker was, and tried to arrest his ass or something.Or, if ya' want Seeker to stay pure, they just went out on a date.
>>1034688>Yeah, there wasAthena better not tell the team about this. Smug robot
>>1034688>>Yeah, there was.Oh boy, exposition!
>>1034688>>No, there wasn't. (Lie)Badly.Make Athena press us for answers.
>>1034688>Yeah, there was.No secrets. That leads to Blackwatch.
>No, there wasn't. (Lie)>She did not ambush me in the middle of the night>Or break my sword>Or blow me though a wall>Or force me to run though the desert in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT!>NOPE NOTHING HAPPENED AT ALL!
So we get to hear about that one time Pharah made Bandit look stupid?
>>1034688>No, there wasn't. (Lie)>>1034696I doubt that blackwatch formed from Reyes lying about banging
>>1034688>Yeah, there was.No reason to lie to (NOT)Cortana
>>1034688No, there wasn't. (lie) (Did we feel the justice raining from above?)
>Yeah, there was.
>>1034702>Or blow me through a wallJ-jesus.
>>1034702that's autistic as hell
>>1034715Fits us perfectly then.
>>1034716no it doesn't
>>1034719where do you think you are?
"No," you say, not even convincing yourself. "Okay, yes. I don't want to talk about it." You try not to remember what she looked like that day. What she smelled like. How it all fell apart."Your secrets are safe with me, Seeker," says Athena. "If you decide you do want to talk about it, let me know.""Thanks, Athena." You look up at the laboratory door. "I gotta put that aside for now, though. There's a gorilla in this lab I need some one on one time to hang out with."(Continued)
>>1034722Not roleplaying as an autist.
>>1034728true that, though, this is autismburg, better get used to it.
>>1034727Old flame route then for pharah?
>>1034733I'm guessing it ended when she found out what we did for a living and what we found out what she did for a living.
>>1034741How did we meet tho? Cheesy romance movie-esque saw each other from across the room? Or were we set on a blind date? Or even better...speed dating
>>1034744That's adorable. Supporting this idea.
>>1034744best left vague?I'd rather have less specifics and more hints.
>>1034744we meet at a café
>>1034744A fling at the bar. The most romantic kind of date.
>>1034744Mutual friend that set us up on a blind date? Or we kinda had an reversed catwoman-batman thing.
You enter the laboratory. "Yo, Winston!" you call out. "You in here?"You see the sparks from an arc welder near the back, and head that way. Winston is wearing a welding mask and working on his satellite, a machine the size of a small car. When he sees you, he stops the welder and flips up his mask. "Hello, Seeker. Settling into things okay?""Yeah, I think I'm starting to get the hang of all this. Still room for improvement, but you know. One thing at a time. And hey, we've done four missions, and recruited four agents. More than four, if you count Bastion. And I helped Torbjorn stop a giant robot from killing a city. So yeah, I'm feeling good about this." You look at his machine. "How's the satellite coming along?""Almost ready," he says. "By my calculations, I should achieve the launch window coming up in three days.""Three days, okay. And you said once this is in the sky, we'll have proper global communications?""That's right! Not perfect, of course. You need a minimum of three functioning satellites for that, to form a triangle around the Earth. One will give us a great deal of coverage, though. Much more than we have now.""Okay, great. Keep up the hard work, big guy." Now might be a good time to ask Winston about ...>How he joined the first Overwatch.>Growing up on the moon.>The time between Overwatch disbanding and now.>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.>Something else.
>>1034758>How he joined the first Overwatch>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.I don't wanna' pry about what happened on the moon because, even though it's a bit meta, I know it'll make him feel down.
>>1034758>>Growing up on the moon.Crazy, huh?>His hopes for the new Overwatch.Whaddaya wanna see happen, big guy?
>>1034758>How he joined the first Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.
>>1034758>The time between Overwatch disbanding and now.
>>1034758>How he joined the first Overwatch.>Growing up on the moon.These could be condensed into one>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.Probably should have asked Mercy and McCree about the movie genre too
>How he joined the first Overwatch.>The time between Overwatch disbanding and now.>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.
>>1034758>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.
>>1034758>>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>>What movie he wants to watch tonight.
>>1034758What movie he wants to watch.
>>1034744>Phara is studying Engineering in Canada>We're at the same uni studying some throwaway degree>Bump into her at the campus coffee shop>Compliment her on something--anything>She humors us>It builds>There are two wonderful years>We have been funding our lifestyle and dates with illicit activities>And then...graduation>She gets a job offer>Back in Egypt>Aerospace Engineering, working on flight jets for prototype battle armor>Around the same time she finds out what we do>Ever the idealist, the arguments explode and continue on for days>There are tears>Shouts>It's awful for everyone involved>She leaves for Egypt with a broken heart>>1034758>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.
>>103744Fuck yes, I support speed dating.>>1034758>How he joined the first Overwatch>His hopes for the new Overwatch>What movie he wants to watch tonight.
>>1034771Supporting. Good backstory is good.
>>1034771So she knows what we look like and who we really are then.I like it.
>>1034758>How he joined the first Overwatch>His hopes for the new Overwatch.>What movie he wants to watch tonight.>Now i think about it wouldn't it be easier to "Borrow" a unused or decommissioned satellite in orbit?
>>1034758>>The time between Overwatch disbanding and now.>>What movie he wants to watch tonight.Moon stuff is both meta and would bring up too many emotions.
>>1034771I like this idea as a backstory
>>1034771that's cliché as fuckid rather we meet in Egyptthen started dateing followed by the inevitable reveal of both our jobs
>>1034780And by cliche do you mean.... normal?
>>1034771Personally I say we do not find out about each-other until later, after she is already with Aerospace, and the break up involves a few rockets. Also i would say the relationship was shorter maybe a few months.
>>1034782naw just think about every plot for criminal with the heart of gold meets love of his life movie and that's every plot to all of them
>>1034787Not really. Ever see "To Catch a Thief">
>>1034771What is with this obsessive need to date every woman in this game?Can't it just be as simple as we were in Egypt on a job, ran into Pharah before everything went down, befriended her not knowing who she was, and then realizing she was on the other side during the actual mission.Something slipped, she realized who WE were, felt betrayed and then kicked our ass. (Badly)It meshes with what we said to Athena "We could have been friends."
>>1034790Because I want to waifu the giant brown woman.
>>1034771I think it ties our past down a little too much. I mean, it even claims the reason why we started becoming a criminal. Let's leave our history a little more vague.
>>1034790Because everything is about waifus, anon. EVERYTHING.(Also, >You try not to remember what she looked like that day. What she smelled like. )
You decide not to pry into his past, and the old Overwatch, for now. Stay focused on the future, and the new Overwatch. And movies."Where do you think we're going to go from here?" you ask Winston. "I mean, once we get the satellite launched, and we recruit as many agents as we can. What then?""We carry out our original mission," says Winston. "Protect the people. Fight for freedom, justice, and peace throughout the world. Serve as a symbol of hope for everyone."But it's more complicated than that, you want to say. Does peace just mean protecting the status quo, where mega-corps exploit the people? How can you find justice in a world where the law is corrupt? How do you give people freedom without it turning into chaos?In the end, you say, "Whatever happens, we can do our best to protect people, and give them hope." That much you agree with. "Giant Omnics, megacorps, AI, Talon, , whatever -- bring 'em on!""That's the spirit, recruit," says Winston. Right. With Athena and the strike teams taking orders from you, you're starting to forget you're still technically a recruit."Anyway," you say. "I had this idea for a movie night tonight. Get everybody together in one of the unused rooms, watch a movie together. We've been working hard, we could use an evening to relax and do a team bonding thing.""Hmm. I'd say that sounds ... excellent!""Good to hear," you say. "I recently got a download of the latest from Hollywood. Let's take a look and pick one of these."(Continued)
>>1034789if I have then I have forgotten about it and its plot
>>1034794To be fair; it could had been rocket fuel and a scowl of rage.
>>1034796Oh my god we didn't torrent the movies did we? We're better than that now.
>>1034794She grappled with us?
>>1034797Two thieves fall in love with each other, both have a heart of gold, and both think that each other is their mark.
>>1034800We're already making Overwatch stoop to new lows...
>>1034794>>1034792I like waifus too, but not at the expense of consistency or good storytelling. We befriended her before knowing who she was, we butted heads since we were on opposite sides of the law, we both felt betrayed at the loss of a friend.It makes a lot more sense, and it explains out almost petulant and bitter attitude towards her. We wouldn't have said "We could have been friends" to Athena if we were fucking dating for two years.
You already watched Six-Gun Killer with Tracer a few days ago, so maybe you won't repeat-watch that one.The other new releases from Hollywood that catch your eye are:>Hero of My Storm (Sci-Fi Action)>Rise of the Zomnics (Horror)>Some Like It Bot (Romantic Comedy)>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)
>>1034805Alright anon fine.
>>1034808>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)Something funny for everyone.
>>1034808>>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)I love campy shit like this
>>1034805this is true.
>>1034808>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)
>>1034808>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)No-brainer
>>1034808>They Came From Beyond the MoonI think everyone can enjoy that.
>>1034808>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi ComedyAt what point does Sci-Fi just become regular fiction in this universe
>>1034808>>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)CAMP
>>1034808They all sound something from MST3K i guess we go with>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)
>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)
>>1034808>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)Hells yeah.
>>1034808>They Came From Beyond the MoonRaven, I love you for making these titles. Thank you.
>>1034824they are on posters in the game...
"This one looks perfect," you say. ""They Came From Beyond the Moon." Latest movie by Hal-fred Glitchbot. Some old-school science fiction. Look at these aliens," you say, showing Winston the cover on your screen. The gorilla adjusts his glasses. "I believe the physics of that craft are -- right. Not the point. Yes.""In a way, that IS the point," you say. "It's supposed to be stupid. At least, I think it is. You can never tell with Glitchbot. His movies are brilliant, but it feels like he didn't make them that way on purpose, like it was all a big accident. Anyway, I think we'll get a good laugh out of this one. I'm going to set up the movie theater in one of those unused storage rooms out by the launch pad. Might as well get started on that now.""Okay," says Winston. "Thanks for putting this together. I think it's a really good idea for everyone to, you know. Hang out." He coughs. You can tell this is important to him, but he's trying not to show it too much. "Okay, looking forward to it. See you later.""See ya, big guy."(Continued)
>>1034808>Hero of My Storm (Sci-Fi Action)>They Came From Beyond the Moon (Sci-Fi Comedy)>Rise of the Zomnics (Horror)
>>1034826Fucking hell why are all the big guys of the group making my heart hurt
>>1034830Iron Giant principle. The bigger they are, the bigger the impact.
>>1034832Let me rephrase that, "The bigger they are, the harder you feel."
>>1034825Whoops. I don't play Overwatch, sorry
>>1034835Don't feel bad, I play OW a bunch and even I forgot that these were from the game
>>1034835>>1034836I don't play, but I never forget trivia...help me
>>1034836Good to see I'm not alone>>1034837I don't see your problem.
>>1034826If we watced Hero of the Storm we would have seen D.va acting right?
Later that day ...As the sun sets, everyone finishes their business for the day, and gathers in the storage room between the Aurora's hangar and the cliff by the launchpad. Torbjorn is still disabled, but the others are all here: Winston, Tracer, Mercy, Reinhardt, Brigitte, and McCree."Orright everyone," says Tracer. She seems nervous, talking to everyone. "This is the first time we've had so many of us in one place since ... well, you know. The bad days. But that's all in the past. We're here now, together. And I think we all agree, before we get too much into beatin' up baddies, we should take some time to have fun. Our first recruit in ages, my new pal Seeker, has the latest hot release from Hollywood for us to watch, so let's relax and enjoy ourselves!"There's a murmur of agreement from everybody. "Engaging entertainment mode," says Athena, dimming the light and activating the projector. The screen appears on the wall, and everyone starts to take a seat.Who do you sit next to?>Choose an agent.
>>1034844>Between Mercy and Tracer
>>1034844>>Choose an agent.Tracer, duh.
>>1034844Next to Winston
>>1034844Tracer, 120%, although I will settle for the compromise of between Tracer and Mercy if that's the way this goes.
>>1034844Tracer and Mercysince we do know them best
>Between Mercy and Tracer.
>>1034849>>1034845Changing to these from>>1034846
>>1034844>MercyAlso I just busted through the precious editions of Thug Quest. Good shit and Ryuji a best.
Changing from >>1034847to>>1034851
>Between Mercy and Tracer with Bastion sitting down in-front.
>>1034844Next to Winston and Tracer.
>>1034844Wait I just realized, where the fuck is Bastion?
>>1034844Between Mercy and Tracer if possible, otherwise TracerI personally prefer Mercy but I feel like Tracer is a better match for Seeker
>>1034844>"Engaging entertainment mode"oh god. this is glorious.also this >>1034845
>>1034858Uh, he's totally there, you just didn't see him because he's ... already sitting down in the front. Yeah.
>>1034860Don't block out what your heart wants anon, fight against your brain
>>1034845>>1034849>>1034850>>1034851>>1034852You fools! you will crush yourselves under the weight of these beutiful women...that said I vote we sit between the waifus
>>1034862Can we mistake him for a chair and sit on him
>>1034866NO, BAD ANON. NO ABUSING THE ONE TRUE WAIFU
>>1034870I don't think Bastion would care actually. He might actually enjoy it.
>>1034871But the bird nest
>>1034874It's not like we'd crush it or anything...I hope
I'm imagining Pharah being unnecessarily aggressive and hateful in the best wayS: Hey Fareeha, long time no see.T: You two know each other?P: Yes, although I wish we didn'tS: Hey Pharah, how are you doing?P: Worse now that you're hereP: I haven't seen you without the mask in years...S: Yeah, well I-P: You've gained weight and those scars are unflatteringS: You gave them to me last time we metP: GoodP: Do you still go by Seeker?S: Yeah, why?P: It's a shitty name and it always has beenS: ...P: Also your costume looks like you moonlight at a raveW: Hello Pharah, I was wondering what are your thoughts on Seeker as a leader?

>>1034877Dude, seeker has a FANTASTIC face. QM confirmed it in the discord.
>>1034877P: Do you still go by Seeker?S: Yeah, why?But isn't Bandit our original name
For someone used to exploiting a split-second window to dodge between automated force fields that could slice your arm off, sliding into the perfect seat between Mercy and Tracer is no problem. "Hey guys," you say casually. "Looking forward to the movie?""Sure am," says Tracer. "When I sawr the aliens on the cover I said, that has to be Glitchbot, and no mistake. He's the best, am I right?""He totally is," you say."I don't know much about this whole science fiction thing," says Mercy, a woman who frequently wears a flying angel suit and shoots a healing beam of light into her friends. "But you say it's a comedy?""Right," you say. "Sort of. It's going to be funny, whether or not it was intended to be funny. Does that make sense?""Er ... not entirely, but I'll try to pick it up as I go." "Just relax and have fun," you say, as the opening credits begin to roll. "The movie's not really important. We're just here to hang out and enjoy each other's company."Mercy smiles at you. "Thanks. I'm sure I will."Tracer holds out a bag of popcorn. "Wan' some?" she asks, her mouth full."Yes," you say. "Yes I do. Thank you."Yes. This is the life. Enjoying a hard-earned day off from fighting for justice and taking it to the man. Sitting between two beautiful women, eating popcorn, about to enjoy a good movie. Everything is perfect.And that's when the lights go out.
>>1034877Also a great ass.
>>1034882But aren't the lights supposed to go out?
>>1034882Aw shit, are we getting Sombra'd? Good thing you corrected that Bastion was with us.Wait, nobody was with Torb
>>1034885.... anoni think you need glasses.
Oh god....is it talon? Or am I just being paranoid.
>>1034881Shit fuck you're right fucking dammit
>>1034882Do we have our gear with us at least?
The lights in the room go out, and the movie projector. And, you realize as you look outside, maybe all the lights on the base."Athena?" you say. "Talk to me, girl--"Emergency lighting kicks in as a backup generator somewhere comes to life. An alarm begins to ring out. Everyone's data pads and comm links begin to flash red."Red alert," says Athena. "Enemy incursion. Level two.""Son of a bitch," you say. "Why can't we just have nice things?" You stand up and reach for your weapon. "Why can't we just--"The twilight sky is lit up by an explosion.
>>1034887It's only logical for us to watch a movie with the lights off
Done for tonight. Thanks for playing Overwatch Quest. Hope you're enjoying it.
>We didn't get an alert until the person was literally in the baseThis happened in Winston 'a short too. God damn it we need to upgrade Athena's sensors because they are garbage
>>1034894thanks for running
Thanks for running Raven.
>>1034894Awesome as always
>>1034895Just a note, level two means she detected them outside. After that explosion, it may no longer be the case.
>>1034894Thanks as always for running Raven. Just to reiterate, are any of us suited up?
>>1034894Thanks for running, Raven.
>>1034894Thanks for running, loving it so far
Seekers Main theme as of now (decided by the discord): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_sLt67HNvo
>>1034903Mercy and Reinhardt aren't, but the medical bay with Mercy's gear is close by.Tracer, Winston, and McCree are ready to go because they just wear their clothes into battle. You're ready to go too, because you haven't got around to buying or fabricating any civilian clothes for yourself. Also, a certain robot.So Mercy can gear up but will be delayed, Reinhardt should either hide or be escorted to his armor or just punch things.
>>1034891Fucking invaders at anime-tier inopportune time, get out! REEEE!Thanks for the thread OP!
>>1034911What time you running tomorrow bro?
>>1034913I'm usually busy on Thursday and Friday. You'll have to enjoy your cliffhanger until the weekend.
>>1034917Good to know man. Can't wait till the weekend.
>>1034882hm... I would've liked to see Reinhardts face when he realized the first line.
>>1034919It may be possible that this is literal for me.
>>1034771You do realize any relationship with her probably seals off the Ada route right?
>>1034908>Tracer [is] ready to go because they just wear their clothes into battle.A fighter pilot jumpsuit, harness and all, counts as civvies?
>>1035032Well, she has to wear her chrono-thingy all the time or she starts jumping in and out of time and that's the important piece of her gear.
>>1035079Chrono-harness aside, I mean.
>>1035079no she does not. Winston uses some kind of device to anchor her in places where wearing the harness day and night would be uncomfortable. Her apartment and his laboratory are the two places equipped for that. The two we know of, at least.
>>1035089Correct. Tracer has a specially built home that Winston set up for her that basically has the chrono-anchor technology set up all throughout, so she doesn't need to wear her harness 24/7 and can live comfortably and hygenically. And when she's out and about, word of God from Blizzard says that as long as she's vaguely within proximity of her anchor harness, she's fine.
>>1035093lore-nerd internet high five for that.oh wait, how do the youngsters put it...ma nigga.
>>1035012>AdaWe're reaching waifu routes that shouldn't even exist
>>1034877Dude. Do it for sombra
>>1035106you say that it doesn't exist?WE WILL SEE ABOUT THATDUES VULT
why tf do we need to bang every single personThe only viable waifu rn is Tracer, and then maybe Mercy. We didn't need to date Pharah and all that shit, it's just extraAlso why is Mercy getting all the love i dont understand
>>1035863I in favor of having had a run in where Pharah kicked our ass in the past. Maybe where we were even friends with her before realizing we were both on opposite sides of the law.It would explain the falling out and it fleshes in the characters a bit.
>>1035885Exactly, maybe we were working together on the same side of the law but for different motivations, then one of us betrays the other and BOOM! A good story.
>>1035863>why is Mercy getting all the love i dont understandShe's the hot blonde healer in form fitting angel armour, what's not to love?I agree with this guy though >>1034805
>>1035900idk, I just feel her personality is flat afand i agree with your agreeance
>>1035863People wanna vicariously fuck the female cast, man. Whenever there's a moderately attractive female introduced in a quest, players wanna talk about about romance routes. It's pretty common for heroes to have a romantic interest involved in their stories, isn't it? I can't blame them for wanting to hear a story about a badass mercenary who also gets with [INSERT POPULAR WAIFU], but the constant discussion of it does have a chance to distract from the main idea of the quest; being an MC who does the thing.As for Mercy, what she has going for her is:>pretty attractive>extraordinarily kind and caring>has an accent>has extensive opportunities for private personal contact with the MC>very concerned for the safety and well being of the MC>"I have some "swelling" I need checked out..."That's about what I feel makes Mercy the go-to choice for some anons.
>>1035920Well she did have that whole conflict with the Original OW team about the advancement of her medical tech, she's also openly against the type of fighting she's known for being a part of.As is the case with a lot of characters, she just needs to be fleshed out a bit more.
>>1035924Well my annoyance is not that there's discussion of romance, that's fine, but that we have to get with every single fuckin woman on the face of the Earth.I just wish people picked shit that would make sense and would make for interesting stories, not just because the character is sexy. But maybe im just cynical twat so idk
Take it to the Discord sever
>>1035944No, I think you're justified in being frustrated at something like that. The players should try and make choices that fit with the character. It's just good role-playing and it makes for good stories.Sadly it seems that a lot of anons seem to focus solely on getting with their waifu in text format, not whether or not it actually adds anything to the story.
I just want to take things in stride as they come.Not make up relationships well in advance of meeting people like the people that want to bully and tease d.va or have a past with pharah.Just seems artificial and forced if people do it that way.
>>1035999I agree with this, however a person can still have some hopes
>>1035999We did have a past with Pharah though
>>1036065What exactly it is, is a rather heated topic for debate
>>1036068We could just make the choice when that info comes up. Like say one of our team-mates asks how know her and then we explain from there.
>>1035944And I just wish you wouldn't try to call it this early. Your "only viable waifu" bullshit really needs to stop. I would gladly take a developed relationship over a forced one, but people like you keep pushing to shut down any attempts to get to know the other options. Also, don't pretend that a majority of the anons wouldn't have bent their respective waifus over the second we met them if given the chance. So, do you mind letting us talk to other waifus, and try to get to know them? Or does that not "make sense" for Seeker?
Just put it down as "It's Complicated," you twats.A Friendship with more than a little sexual tension that got really awkward when their professions came to light.
>>1034616Suddenly everything makes sense. Bastion is only working because Ganymede is a technopath/mancer.
>>1035863People can date each other without banging you know, maybe Harrier girl and Seeker never got to that stage. Hell maybe one of them is hesitant of comitting like that, I know a guy who dosen't want to have sex with his girlfriend because he dosen't wanna be like his father
We live for tonight? Raven's twitter has been quiet.
>>1047108doesn't look like it buddy.I'm not a robot
>>1047108>>1047870I'll be updating later today, stay tuned.
Just a suggestion We build the team, then start the waifu warsBy the time we have a full team, we should have had enough interraction with everyone to make an informed decision
>>1048899Oh most certainly, even more so since that might give us enough time to figure out if we can waifu best bot and how to do so.
>>1048928I too wouod like to waifu Athena
>>1048938You wouldn't do this to Winston, would you?
>>1048899I'd also like to suggest that winston becomes one of our best bros
>>1048981Poor guy just needs people to actually talk too
For those still lurking here, there's a new thread>>1049940
