Summary: Overwatch can be forgiven for keeping Hanzo at arm’s length despite the endorsement of his intended murder victim. Six months of provisional membership, spent in the field, is a reasonable compromise. But not everyone is on board with giving Hanzo a chance. McCree, least of all.
Summary: Overwatch takes an extended mission undercover in a coffee shop in the heart of Seattle, a prime location to stake out their current targets. McCree’s not one for the big city or fancy coffee, but the work needs doing, and it’s not like anyone outside Overwatch will get it done. It should be a straightforward, if tedious, mission. Then Hanzo Shimada complicates things by walking in, unaware, for want of a simple mocha.
Summary: Socks sliding along the carpet as they sway to the song on the radio.
Rating: Teen And Up
Summary: Hanzo Shimada is an assassin, a murderer, and decidedly not a hero, let alone a superhero — and yet.
5. Popcorn Redemption (Unfinished)
Summary: They say life isn’t like the movies. Well, partner, they ain’t never worked for Overwatch.
6. Ghost Stories On Route 66 (Unfinished)
Summary: Hanzo Shimada is an expatriate student of the Fine Arts, attending college in what he assumes to be a reasonably sedate corner of the American southwest. Jesse McCree is an occasionally leather-clad NPS ranger whose duties extend somewhat further than shooing lost tourists back onto the clearly marked hiking trails. Something weird is going on in the desert south of Santa Fe and their lives unexpectedly come together in the middle of it.
7. The Cooking Cowboy, with Jesse McCree (Unfinished)
Summary: It had started simple—he just needed a good recipe for matcha cake to surprise Genji on his birthday, and so he’d started clicking around for tutorials on YouTube. But now Hanzo is in deep, and is officially part of ‘The Chuckwagon’; the mostly middle-aged, mostly female fan following of YouTube cooking sensation Jesse McCree, the Cooking Cowboy. How had his life come to this?
8. Suit Up!
Summary: After decrypting a Talon message saying that council member Maximilien will be present at a Monte Carlo Fashion Week runway show, much to Overwatch’s surprise, Jesse and Hanzo are sent in undercover to investigate. …And what better cover is there than to go in as a married couple?
Summary: Jesse McCree, a young archaeologist with a slight obsession with Indiana Jones, can’t accept the orders to shut down the excavation site he’s been working on for months. He takes the matter in his hands, expecting trouble – but not of the supernatural, angry kind. Because come on, fairy tales aren’t real… are they?
Summary: Hanzo is critically injured, and in an attempt to keep him conscious, he and Jesse spend their time trading stories while waiting for help to arrive.
