The server kicks me out about every 2 hours bu it's still less annoying than everything about himan:absolution so I can 100% tolerate this

Just finished the second mission (dartmoor) and Ohhhhh my Godddd the writing gears are turning, they're turning so hard I had to get up and pace for 20 minutes before I could calm down

47 Cannot Dance

Well, I suppose he can, technically. The problem is, he understands it on a very objective level. Where to move, where to step, how to hold your partner, etc. so the finer details and emotions that are inherant to dancing are completly lost to him.

All this to say, when he dances he looks like an animatronic

My friend @Anyerina and I made this little template! Imagine what your OC's texting habits would look like. How would they type, what kind of pictures would they send etc.

You can download a transparent png of the template here

Show us your filled out template with #OCTextingHabits! We would love to see it!

Have fun <3

Coffee Headcanons

In case you were wondering how these characters like their coffee

47: Lukewarm. Doesn't matter if it was hot or iced originally, he waits until it's room temprature to drink it.

Diana: Usually prefers tea, but occasionally has an iced mocha as a treat.

49: Far too impatient to drink coffee. You have to wait for the water to heat up, and then wait for it to brew, and then wait for it to cool, and by that point he's thrown the coffee maker out the window in an impatient rage. He's also been informed by the agency that he is no longer allowed to drink caffine in large amounts.

Jane: She's not picky, maybe a medium amount of cream and sugar.

23: Doesn't like coffee at all, the taste is too Strong and can lead to sensory overload. Not to mention, the caffine can trigger anxiety, and lord knows he has enough of that already.

Jordan: Not really into coffee, but absolutely addicted to Mt. Dew and sometimes an energy drink if they really need a boost. Needs caffiene to survive. They'll drink coffee if there's nothing else, but it's gotta be like 90% milk.

Soders II: On the odd chance that he does have a cup of coffee it's spiked with bourbon. Not the most pleasant taste, but he's tasted far worse.

thoughts asked:

Formaldehyde! kin assign the hitman... and Pentaborane

Formaldehyde: James Bond. Sexuality differences aside, Bond has the exact right aesthetic.

Pentaborne: I'm actually really fond of keeping pets. Small animals like birds, rabbits, and hamsters are my favorites. They require a lot of attention and care, but I enjoy the quiet companionship.

Send me a question and a character and I'll respond as they would

Eyecontact headcannons


47 stares directly into people's souls; most people subconciously avoid looking at his face because his default expression is extremely intense

49's pretty normal about eye contact, but he still can't meet 47's eyes

23 Cannot make eye contact with Anyone or He Will Die

Some dumbass youtube commentor: Well Lucas Grey has hair and they're clones so like, 47 could have hair he just shaves it

Me, an afab person who used to shave their legs: No He Doesn't


One of these days I'm gonna make a really long post about how Diana Burnwood is one of the most badass female characters in video game history and how she's a strong female character not because she's not afraid to kill someone but because her agency drives the plot of a lot of the games even though she isn't even a playable character


Me in a dark alley at 5 am: hey kid you wanna talk about my hitman ocs

Agent 47

I've never really done realism/semi-realism before so I thought I'd experiment with the Bald Man
