Hi there! Could I ask you for some headcanons for Reaper/Gabe, McCree, and Lucio (separately) with an s/o that has found out they have cancer and they try to hide it from them? Stuff like this actually really helps me cope. Thank you!

I’m pretty sure this is the longest headcanons-post I’ve ever written…


  • At first, he wouldn’t really notice if you were acting differently
  • But after a while, it becomes obvious.
  • He grows suspicious quickly
  • He almost demands you tell him what’s going on.
  • When he finds out, he’ll just… soften
  • He’s so nice to you
  • He treats you like a porcelain doll
  • If you can be cured, he’ll keep treating you that way.
  • If not… He’ll spend every moment with you.
  • He’ll be like the man he once was, before he became Reaper


  • He’s oblivious
  • He’ll only notice when he sees that something about you changed
  • He asks you what’s going on
  • When you tell him, he’ll leave your house for a few hours
  • But when he comes back, he immediately hugs you
  • He’ll ask you why you didn’t tell him sooner
  • He wanted to be there for you – he wanted to support you
  • He’ll be there for you
  • Seriously, he’ll do anything.
  • If you can be cured, he’ll actually propose immediately – he doesn’t want you to leave him now.
  • If not, he’ll take a break from Overwatch/Blackwatch so he can spend more time with you.


  • He’d notice immediately
  • But he respects your privacy
  • However, when he notices that your appearance is changing, he’ll ask you immediately
  • He’s heartbroken when he finds out.
  • He wants to be there for you
  • He wishes he could help
  • He’ll ask Angela for tips on how to help you
  • He searches for information online.
  • If it can be cured, he’ll just hug you immediately.
  • He’ll be so happy, so excited, he’ll sometimes just look at you in amazement
  • If not… He’ll try to be happy but it’s obvious that he isn’t
  • He wanted to help you, he wanted to be there for you
  • But now it feels like he failed

How would McCree, Lucio and Soldier76 react when they find out their s/o listens to Dubstep Violin (like Lindsey Stirling)? (Song examples: Roundtable Rival, Master of Tides, Shadows, Moon Trance)


McCree wouldn’t really mind. I think he’d actually enjoy it! He’ll even look for some similar artists.

Lúcio would be… less excited. I don’t think he’d really like the music but he respects you and won’t insult it.

Soldier 76 would like it – love it! But he’d deny it! Don’t mention it. You might hear him listening to it when he thinks he’s alone!
