The Blackwatch+Talon Family (and friends!) AU no one asked for.

I’m planning to eventually do the entire roster for Overwatch for this AU but here is just the Reyes Household for now.
Point Overwatch AU

PREMISE:

Single dad Gabriel Reyes gets takes on a new job offer and moves his family to the city of Point Overwatch. He meets old friends and new faces, and possibly picking up more more madness into his already hectic household.

REYES HOUSEHOLD:

Gabriel Reyes: Your not-so-average, intensely frazzled single dad working with a team of maintenance technicians at the Shimada Towers.

Jesse: The cowboy wonder and Gabe’s only son, he has a not-at-all-secret crush on a certain classmate named Hanzo.

Sombra: The genius toddler who takes great delight in getting Jesse in trouble for her pranks and shenanigans.

Amelie: The brooding, aloof teenage daughter who has a crush on a certain Lena girl at school.

NOT LEGALLY REYES HOUSEHOLD, BUT PRACTICALLY LIVE THERE:

Fareeha: Ana’s daughter and Genji’s classmate, OFTEN gets dropped off at Gabe’s when Ana needs a babysitter.

Genji: Jesse’s rich best friend and Hanzo’s younger brother, basically squatting at the Reyes residence and lives in Jesse’s room much to Gabe’s annoyance.

Billy the Cat: A stray cat Jesse secretly takes in because Gabe doesn’t want to pay a monthly pet fee on their rental home.

Imagine their family roadtrips....

Amelie: "Daaaad, Sombra's poking me again!"

Gabriel: *angry muttering*

Sombra: "Am no!"

Amelie: "Are too!"

Gabriel: *angrier muttering*

Jesse: "Daaaad, are we there yet?"

Genji: *making paper planes that keep hitting people*

Gabriel: *even angrier muttering*

Fareeha: "Uncle Gabriel, I need to use the bathroom."

Amelie & Sombra: *in an intense poking fight*

Gabriel: "Alright, that's it!"

A few minutes later....

Gabriel: "Ahhhh, this is nice isn't it?"

Kids: *all blocking their ears from the sound of La Bamba*

Lol, I'm glad not everyone is totally put off by this! Thank you! Seriously he's taken in so many kids under his wing he's basically a dad to almost everyone.

I've always had these silly headcanons about Reyes and Morrison being "dads" to everyone;
I see Reyes as the "edgy reluctant dad", like he doesn't wanna be everyone's dad, but he feels like he has to, and I imagine him saying that he hates it, but he actually secretly enjoys watching the kids, and he'd also be the kind of dad "who's mean because he cares, but won't admit it". 

And I see Morrison as just the "reluctant but natural dad", where he'll say he's "not your father" whilst making sure you wear a coat so you don't catch a cold or makes sure you're okay and all patched up, mainly because he's been everyone's "dad" for so long that he doesn't even know when he's "fathering" everyone, LOL.

Sorry I just had to say this, cuz this is all I could think of when I saw this XDD

im very exicted!! i s2g, i dont understand why's Jack the dad™ of the fandom but Gabe isn't, when Jack onl gets (often) Hana and Gabe's like ALL THE KIDS

I personally don't understand why he isn't recognized as more of the fandom dad either, but to each their own. While Jack has a pretty solid influence on Hana as a father figure, I think frazzled Gabe and his little terrors are just all over the place, which makes it more fun.
