Twas the night before Overwatch, when all through the house, Not a Hero was stirring, not even a Junkrat

The weapons were hung in the armory with care, In the hopes that Soldier 76, would soon be there,

Genji and Hanzo were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of dragons danced in their heads….

    The Kitchen

A poem from Corben to mark the 100th episode.

One plate, one cloth

one calling to the light


One bond, brothers, not of blood

facing the world.


Together they gallop at full speed

into the darkness,

calling down judgment upon foes


The retribution of the Holy Light

Shall know their name

their enemies whisper

their fame


But bonds and deeds require rest,

and they grant us an entire fest

once a week, relieving stressed

shoulders while cheering to 

5 worlds under one crest.


Watched by the world,

joined by a bard,

together they create a recluse

and tear the void apart


Descending of the Fianna,

Unamithil of Cobalt Sky

Fydria of Crimson Sea,

Dawn and Dusk

Trust beyond trust,


A legend in the making
