  1. Summary

    Moira O'Deorain has won. With her three Weapons - the Changed and copper-eyed Tracer, the silver-eyed Oilliphéist, and golden-eyed Widowmaker - Mora O'Deorain has seized control of Talon. Akande Ogundmu is dead, his war thwarted. Gabriel Reyes is dead, his ever-shifting games of chess at an end. Sanjay Korpal is dead, his corruption excised - and more.

    However, even that is not enough, not if she and her peerless weapons are to remake the world, and humanity along with it. She will need an entire collection of tools, a pantheon so powerful that no one could hope to stop her. But just as no plans survive first contact with the enemy, no one person can truly hold back all the wills of all the gods, so sometimes, plans - and perhaps, even, those who make them - must change.

  3. Summary

    Widowmaker brought herself in from the cold, one day, exchanging a list of Talon agents for sanctuary. Why? That is not easy to explain. But it does get explained, and that leads to other questions, which are, in turn, also not easy to explain.

    This is a standalone continuity largely canon-compliant with what we knew of canon in Overwatch before July of 2017 (pre Masquerade/Doomfist), which is when the first story was written. It focuses on Widowmaker, from the standpoint specifically of how a built - a created - personality thinks and feels about other people - and in general.

    Summary

    Hana "D.Va" Song and Aleksandra "Zarya" Zaryanova have been members of the newly-rebooted Overwatch organization for a little while now. They've been forming friendships and getting familiar with it all for a little while now.

    ...they've also been tripping over themselves crushing on each other for a little while now.

    Sometimes, all it takes is the right moment, the right smile, the right few words. Sometimes it requires a lot of awkward run-ins with wrenches and messy spills and a whole lot of blushing. This would be one of the latter.

    Summary

    Talon is in turmoil. A group of insurgents struggle to fight the oppressive organisation from the inside, where loyalty is conditional and blackmail runs rampant. Overwatch manages to catch Widowmaker on a mission gone sour, and it seems they can finally heal her for good - but delusions of glory can't hide old wounds forever, and the sniper's return starts to tear the Watchpoint in half.

    When Talon returns for their property and destroys the illusion of safety at the Watchpoint, the young generation of heroes must pick up the mantle and act before it's too late. Talon strikes hard where its prey is weakest, and the raptor's grip is not so easily broken...

    Summary

    Some months ago - in The Arc of Ascension, Fragment e12,1: It's Just Too Useful To Avoid - Lena found out something about her genetic makeup. Voidsarcade thought this needed to be illustrated, and did this. We are delighted, and fully agree.

    The original is hosted on imgur, but you should go look at more of voidarcade's work on tumblr or - as ccauchemar on AO3.

    Of Gods and Monsters: The Arc of Ascension is a continuance of Of Gods and Monsters: The Arc of Creation and The Armourer and the Living Weapon. It will be told in a series of eddas, sagas, interludes, fragments, texts, and cantos, all of which serve their individual purposes. To follow it as it appears, please subscribe to the series.
