Daily reminder this blog is indeed a Spy stan account
I completely agree with you that Spy grew up poor but for additional angst consider that if Spy was 20 when Scout was born, he would’ve only been 15 when the Nazis occupied France AND that from 1940 to 1945 Allied bombings of France killed 68,778 civilians.
Basically what I’m saying is that a teenager who just lost his family, scared and alone in Nazi occupied France would pick up the skills to become a spy (thievery, lying, etc) very quickly
I don't have anything to add to this due to my lack of knowledge of French history, but I want you to know that I agree wholeheartedly, and this is by far the best addition to Spy's backstory on this blog. This has so much potential. Thank you.
Team Fortress 2, while it may sound silly, has really pulled me out of a bad mental place. I've yet to play the game, but when I do, I don't want to be sad and disappointed. Wishing I could go to the past to play it in its prime. Let's save TF2!!!
This post but with model accurate edited Spy icons!
now that we're sharing our spy parents hcs
i have a crack hc that I just think is funny so I don't exactly hc that spy's parents are an alien magician and an astronomer from a horse game I play because one pretends to be french and is fancy and the other one is actually french
Spy is a Frenchman pretending to be French.
hi im here to share the horrible no good very bad headcanon that spy is grey mann's son
CURSED CURSED CURSED Thank you for sharing! I'll lose my sleep now.
Also I think we can do better than that. I'm not usually very vocal about Spy, I don't have a lot to say about him, but I do have strong opinions on his background. His family was rural French. He grew up poor, he went to a public school, actual French people find his accent funny because it sounds like he knows how to milk a cow - and he does, but he won't admit it. He mocks Engie for his farm background, but in reality he himself is nothing short of a farm kid. All the classy pretense he puts up now is partially a disguise, partially a way for him to catch up on what he didn't have growing up. How to use an elevator. How to pretend to not get spooked by one of those taps that don't have a handle and turn on when you put your hands under them instead. How to use self-checkout. What is a bank.
He's way past that initial stage of out-of-the-woods panic, but still gets moments when his "I grew up under a rock" brain short-circuits at the sight of a big city.
That's not to say he doesn't like his fancy wine and 754799532 different kinds of elite cheese, but it's an adopted passion, not an inherited one. If that makes sense.
Can you write how the mercs show affection towards their s/o. Fluff time! I heard you were a new x reader blog so just wanted to request somthing simple for now. By the way gn reader. :)
*crawls out of the pits of hell* *slaps down fanfic* iTs Not dEliVerY iTs DiGiOrNo
As much as Scout tries to seem like a big bad Boston baseball boy who can and will smash your head in, under all that arrogance he is a softy at heart. His affection, like some other mercs, will vary on whether you're in public or not, though he is rather affectionate either way. When around others, he can be very touchy and feely (though not in a possessive way, just enough however to let others know you're his). His hands will always be somewhere on you, your shoulder, back, your ass, or locked with yours. Since he has some sort of reputation to hold up he won't be the most openly lovely dovey person around others, however, he still greets you often with pecks and compliments.
Soldier is very.... passionate.. About a lot of things, America, war, combat and of course, you. One of the ways he expresses this passion is through the constant shouting of compliments throughout the day. Although they are often loud and sudden (he has scared the crap out of you multiple times while trying to say you look nice) he means well tho and says it full-heartedly. He will also use his words to defend and protect your honour, he will not hesitate to intimidate the fuck out of anyone who dares to insult his cupcake.
Pyro's main form of affection is that of physical touch. He is constantly touching you in one way or another, whether it is through hugging, cuddles, hand-holding, carrying you away from the mass destruction and genocide he has recently caused, or head pats :D. However, because verbal communication is rather hard due to the mask, he often expresses his love for you through slightly crude drawings of you and him together. He also enjoys bringing you flowers or pretty rocks he thinks you will enjoy, yes they're bones and organs from recently dismembered enemies, but it's the thought that counts right.
Regardless, Drunk or sober, Demo will always provide you with affection. He is a very proud man and will not hesitate to show his pride and love for you. Get you used to tackle hugs cause that's what you're receiving all day every day. When he's drunk, however, it's a bit of a different story. He becomes a very cuddly person and will hold you in his arms while rambling on about something that you can't quite understand for hours, or at least until he passes out. The compliments won't often make much sense, but he means them with all of his heart.
Heavy grew up in a very affectionate family, so it is only logical that he shows this same affection to you. Heavy is best at bear hugs, so expect to be lifted into his strong arms often. Usually, when he does this he tends to pick you up off the ground because of the height difference between you, and he will use this is his advantage to sweep you off your feet and drag you into cuddle town. Also, regardless if you speak Russian or not, he will call you with sweet florin pet names and compliments.
This man is the epiphany of dad hugs. End of story. Anytime you are wrapped in his arms, it is impossible to feel unsafe. Although he tends to be rather busy during both the day and night, he loves to hold your hand (when he can) while he's working. As you also may know, he is greatly skilled with the guitar, and he will happily lull you to sleep with his soft-spoken love songs filled with devotion and un dying adoration for you.
Medic isn't quite one for public affection, deeming it childish and saying that he's too old for such things. However, there will always be small kisses and compliments in between the hours, he just doesn't make them as obvious as the other mercs might. But sometimes, if you catch him at the right time of night before he gets into his work or passes out from it, he will hold you in his arms and dance with you along the tiles of the operating room. The classical music playing from the gramophone mixes with his words, the melody blends with the sweet nothing's in German he whispers into your ears. At times, his love may seem slightly silent, but it is nights like these that make up for it.
Sniper is a bit awkward when it comes to showing affection towards his s/o, so he is not great when it comes to physical love (but if you indulge in it first, with some hesitation, he will happily oblige). However, he is a gentleman at heart and will occasionally greet you with cheek and lip kisses when he feels like it. Although sometimes he may seem slightly distant, he makes up for it with camper trips, where he takes you out into an isolated area to watch the stars with him. He'll always say the sky look's beautiful, but not as beautiful as you.
Even though spy is a man whore that will fuck your mother, he is also a true gentleman. When dating him, expect to take out on fancy dinner dates to only the finest of restaurants (unless you wish to stay home, then is that case he will cook you meals fit to your liking). Often he will gift you bouquets of fresh flowers and soft pecks to the cheeks and hands.
well, off to visit your mother!
prompt: how good are each of the Mercs at drawing?
Scout: He’s actually really good at it. All throughout school, he’d doodle all over his homework and notes and it just stuck with him. A lot of his drawings are cartoonish.
Soldier: Couldn’t draw if his life depended on it.
Pyro: Their drawings are childish, usually with markers or crayons. But they aren’t bad by any means, just very cutesy.
Demoman: Ever since he lost his eye, the quality of his drawings has gone down. Typically, he’d draw mythical creatures but he’s given up over the years when everything stopped turning out as well as they used to.
Heavy: He prefers writing to drawing, so it’s not something he’s tried before. He does enjoy seeing what his teammates can do when he can.
Engineer: If blueprints counts as drawing, then yes, he’s excellent. He couldn’t draw anything other than that, however.
Medic: He’s taken several anatomy classes in his time and when it comes to poses or medical drawings, he’s amazing. Usually only draws in sketches and never actually completes anything.
Sniper: One of his hobbies while living in the outback was animal and bird watching, and so he’d often sit back and sketch them to pass the time. He’s pretty great at it and has all of his old sketchbooks stashed away in his camper. He can’t draw people too well, though he tries!
Spy: It was a hobby for him at one point in his life, but he’s long abandoned it. He’s fairly good at drawing portraits of other people from memory.
Hey tf2 tumblr! So, this is going on tomorrow!! Shork even posted about some news articles about it!
Seeing how I’m very well aware there’s a tf2 community on tumblr, I thought we could spread the movement here! I’m absolutely in love with this franchise, and those who play the game deserve to play it without bots! Team Fortress 2 has been ignored by Valve for a long time. It isn’t fair such a rich franchise with such dedicated, loving fans be overlooked.
I’m posting this here to bring awareness! The main movement is on Twitter, but I believe we should get involved! Spread it across any platform you want! Remember this is a peaceful protest! We are saying why we love the game! We are saying why it means so much to us! No harassment or negativity! Represent the positive, warm atmosphere most Team Fortress 2 fans have, please! Also, be sure to tag #savetf2! It is the main tag we want spreading!
Be sure to share around! Spread the word!
THIS IS SUCH A GOOD PICTURE OF SPY IM
More Twitch Doodles and requests
What the TF2 mercs would do if they saw a spider
Like the first couple of times everyone ran into his room to check if he was being murdered. Now it's just:
*blood curdling scream*
Ah shit, looks like Scout found another spider
The team doesn't even glance up anymore lmao
Look, Scout doesn't like bugs all right? Creepy-crawlies are an absolute no-go. He hates insects and spiders and god don't even get him started on centipedes
Will punch someone if they call him a wimp about it. (Still not gonna go anywhere near the spider lol)
Scout is avoiding that room- no, that whole half of the base until it's been dealt with
Clever mercs can use this knowledge to keep Scout from trespassing in their room
Legitimately doesn't give a shit
By that I mean he probably hasn't even noticed there is a spider in the first place. It could be spinning a web from his helmet and he wouldn't notice
Soldier doesn't really have an opinion on bugs. He'll brush them off if they fly at his face but that's about it.
It's just because he doesn't know a whole lot about bugs though. If someone were to teach him about insects he'd find them really cool! He'd think stag beetles were especially amazing!
Soldier would be legitimately confused if someone asked him to move a spider. Are they on American soil? Then as far as he's concerned that spider is an American citizen! He will not evict them!
Pyro loves insects of all kinds! Butterflies and moths look like little fairies to them and spiders are very small mythical animals.
Whenever they find a cool bug they always pick it up and take it to show off to people. Look! Look at this cute friend they found!
Wouldn't mind if they saw a spider. Would actively encourage it to climb on them. Would be thrilled if it set up a little web in a corner of their room.
One of the only mercs that would keep a spider as a pet
Like Soldier, he's nuetral on the subject.
Doesn't really like insects, but has nothing really against them either. He's of the opinion that if it's not bothering you, you shouldn't bother it.
If it's in his room, he'll leave it alone. If Scout was the one to find it, Heavy will come trap it under a cup and take it outside. He has no problem with killing things but not if you don't need to.
Is a little sketched out by the hairy ones. Why does the spider have fur???
Used to smaller, more lanky ones like cellar spiders
Demo's opinion on spiders and insects in general is 'neat.'
He kind of has a knee jerk reaction to swat the spider if he sees it crawling on him, but he'll leave it alone if it's just minding its own business
Likes listening to other people teach him about bugs, but he won't go actively learn about them
Doesn't mind spiders but he hates their webs. They're hard enough to see if you have two working eyes. Demo has one eye and his vision is blurry most of the time because he's drunk. Walks into spiderwebs far more than he'd like to admit. And doors. And walls. And windows.
Thinks spiders are cool as hell
He's an engineer, he can admire a good build. Spiderwebs, cocoons, beehives. If he finds one in his workshop, he'll talk to the spider like it's just a very small colleague
Would prefer if it didn't make webs on his machines tho
Just because he appreciates what they do doesn't mean he won't swat at them if they crawl on him
We are having a professional relationship. Don't touch me.
He usually doesn't find spiders. The doves eat them before he can
If he does find a spider, he'll call over Archimedes and give him a little snack :3
Has a very nuetral opinion on insects in general. Like they're fine, but he prefers to invest his interest in something big enough to experiment on
Very likely to create a human-sized insect like his own little Frankenstein's monster if the mood struck him
Go, you creature of destruction, go!
You know those kids that were really into insects? Yeah, that was Sniper
Sniper fucking loves bugs and spiders and creepy-crawlies. If he found a spider in his room, he'd let it be. Cool, he has a roommate now
The bug guy on base. Need a bug identified? Go ask Sniper.
Pyro brings him insects they find for Sniper to identify
Probably had a spider or a scorpion as a pet at some point
*sees an eight foot tall mutant spider*
*shrugs* 'eh, I've seen bigger back home.'
Thinks it's hilarious as hell that Spy and Scout are terrified of spiders and will leave them in their rooms to have a laugh
Like father like son ig
Of course he's too proud to just ask someone to get rid of it for him. He's standing on the table because he likes to, is all.
Spy doesn't like bugs. Butterflies, bees, centipedes, spiders, he wants nothing to do with them. They sketch him right out
Will aggressively take a feather duster to any spiderwebs he finds. No webs in his room thank you very much. Of course, if there's still a spider in said web, he's shrieking and running to the other side of the base
There seems to be a very high number of spiders in his room compared to the rest of the base. Hmmm...
He once made the mistake of screaming about a spider in front of Sniper. Sniper is never going to let him forget it
