Fun fact: According to Greek legend there was a famous prostitute who managed to avoid a death sentence by showing the judges her boobs and arguing that it would be a crime against the Gods to destroy something so beautiful. 

Before you ask, yes there are paintings of this. And yes, they’re amazing.

I love history.

Role models tho.

The gay one

No, but this is one of my absolute favorite bits of history! 

The courtesan named was named Phryne and she was indeed a renowned beauty, and was indeed was put on trial for a capital crime. And yes, the sum of her defense consisted of her stripping in court (helped by her lover/defendant) and asking the jury (all males) if they were prepared to destroy this

But this is actually a very interesting case of Values Dissonance - the capital crime she was accused of was blasphemy. In Ancient Greek society, exceptional beauty was a sign of favor from the gods, and they took the idea that beauty indicated goodness with great seriousness. They even called their nobles Kaloi k'Agathoi, “the Beautiful and the Good.” 

So by showing off her great physical beauty, Phryne was being very clever indeed, her argument essentially being “How could I possibly commit blasphemy if the gods have given me this body?“ 

God, I adore history.

“These are my children.”

“They look nothing li—”

“LOOK HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY ARE.”

for some reason I really like that she’s called Hilda.

This happened on my grandmothers farm when my mom was little,

baby ducks act a lot like baby chickens so in the beginning it wasn’t so bad

the main problem is that baby ducks  LOVE water, but baby chickens get very very dead from it,

so you can imagine the mother hens surprise and horror the first time they go by the farm pond and ALL THE BABIES RUN TO THE WATER AND JUMP IN

my grandmother had to come out of the house to investigate all the noise the hen was making

The mother hen was clucking and screeching in distress and running circles around the pond while the duckies were having the time of their lives.

This happened a few more times before Momma hen was like FUCK IT YOU WANNA SWIM SEE WHAT I CARE , and would sit a distance away watching them in the pond.

if the ducks ever abandoned any eggs my grandmother would always put it under that particular hens nest cause from then on she always knew how to deal with her “water loving” delinquent children

my fave bit of black dog folklore is that in some folklore there is a belief that the first person buried in a cemetery stays there and doesn’t cross over and helps other spirits move on and protects them from evil spirits, now naturally people want to avoid this fate for their loved ones and themselves so they would sometimes bury a dog first and it would return in the shape of a big black dog and protect the newly dead from evil spirits and occasionally the living as well

this kind of spirit is called a church grim

You mean it’s called a good doggie.

Bethesda: We can’t make the kids killable, no matter how much they annoy the player! That’ll definitely lead to public outcry and there’s some lines we just won’t cross.

BioWare: This kid is possessed by a demon, just straight up stab him. Lil fucker has it coming. This other kid, you don’t get to kill though. We’ll have a Reaper blow him up instead.

I just want every communist/socialist to read The Tragedy of the Commons

Actually professor Bofa disproved that concept in regards to communism and human nature ages ago.  

Source? Because a quick google search of first “professor bofa” brought up nothing, then “professor bofa tragedy of the commons” also brought up nothing nor did “professor bofa human nature”

look up professor Bofa D. Snuts

So you want to get into Overwatch lore?

It’s difficult to put all the lore sources in a chronological order. Partly because some sources doesn’t have an obvious place in the timeline, and partly because many sources cover multiple points in the timeline at once. I’ve done my best, but I’ve focused more on the storytelling than being 100% faithful to the timeline.

But before we begin:


First rule of Overwatch lore: The game is not canon.*

* There is no lore reason behind why the characters are fighting in the game, or why there can be more than one of the same hero in a match. The game does not affect the story, and it does not have a story mode. But! There are hint to lore inside the game. Most notably in the voice interactions between the heroes, but also in the maps themselves.

Have I missed a source? Please let me know.

I’ve started to fall out of the fandom, so as of 2017-11-03 I will still add the lore that I find, but I will no longer actively go searching for it.
