Motives: TF2 Fanfic by AeolianMode Motives: TF2 Fanfic by AeolianMode

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

This is the TF2 fanfiction I was writing as a gift for ~Zechira as well as for my own pleasure. It basically sets up the events for why RED Medic is sacrificing himself for BLU Scout in my picture: [link]

It's over 30,000 words.

I'd say it's generally clean save for some language (thanks to Scout) and violence. There's no sexual content or extreme gore/swearing. The only "pairing" in this is canon, and it's Spy/Scout's Mom, and it's hardly explored at all.

If you'd rather read it on FF.Net you can go here: [link]

A few credits/notes/jimjams:

1. The names of Scout's brothers are inspired from the unassociated fanfiction "Why Rainbows Make Me Cry".
2. I may write a sequel to this in the near future as people have enjoyed it, and I have ideas for a continuation.
3. This story is a collaboration/culmination of the ideas and headcanons that me and my room mate ~Zechira both have. She may be working on a fanfiction that uses these shared character ideas as well, so if you like this story, be sure to watch her for more Friedrich and Punkin!

oh my god, that was incredible. i don't know how long i spent reading, hours perhaps, but it was all worth it. you've written everyone's character superbly, especially that of scout's. and that's really saying something because with many of the fanfics i've read, most of the mercs are OOC to some degree. but you pulled it off flawlessly. 

and the story... oh my god. it was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. 

overall, this was a stellar read! :love:

I'm really glad you enjoyed the story. Unfortunately a sequel was planned but it didn't end up working out. I may write an overview of the kind of plot it was going to have, though, if you're interested in knowing what exactly I had planned.

I couldn't stop reading this, so I stayed up until 1AM reading this because I couldn't put it down. It is a good book, and I will suggest it to everyone I know who plays Team Fortress 2. Great plot, Good Details, and an Excellent book in-all. Good work.

Sorry, but I'm not going to finish my gift for you, because the original dmx file is broken because of a SFM upgrade, so here it is the unfinished: www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_V0me…
As you can see I uploaded it 2 months ago... I could have showed you it then, but I wanted to finish it...

This is really quite a heartwarming surprise. I'm very sad to hear that you lost your DMX file... It is beautiful already, and I'm thankful for it. It is sad to know it could have been longer, but I'm very grateful for what you managed to make. 
<3 I really appreciate it. I hope I can learn to make SFM just as good as yours some day.

I have a question... what happens to the medic's arm in the picture?

No problem, say as much as you like, I appreciate it!

Funny story, see- the picture actually came before the fanfic. In fact, the entire fanfic was inspired from the picture alone. I basically wrote a story with a pre-determined outcome: Medic gets hit with a friendly arrow, defending Scout, and Scout is worried. So the fanfic was basically establishing WHY Medic sacrificed his life for the BLU scout. I forgot that his arm was injured in the time I actually wrote that part, ahaha. I guess you could say stray bullets grazed him? I'm not sure xD

But the story is still perfect :D

I wanted to advice to Rinley an error in the fanfic, but I can't login in fanfiction.net for some reason. "I'd seen Spy without his mask one other time, when I stole his sapper to get into Friedrich's office back when we were still tryin' to figure eachother out." In Motives, when he saw the spy without his mask, he wasn't stealing his sapper, but his cloaking watch.

And I say again, LOVE your fanfic. Keep it up :D

Thank you for pointing that out. There are actually lots of continuity errors between my story and Rinley's and we're hoping to get it all ironed out soon when she's posted the last chapter of Intentions. I'm glad you read it thoroughly enough to catch that, though. I'm very glad you enjoy the stories!

Wonderfully written! The story is so good that I didn't stop reading until I finished reading the last chapter. You, ma'am have a way of capturing the reader's interest and keeping it there until the end. I loved how you wrote Scout and the Medic and I must say I felt a bit attached to them that I wanted to see how everything turned out.

One more time for emphasis, great work! I had lots of fun reading it!

Oh yeha, I'll read anything you write.
Actually, I am writing a fancomic- working on the third page as of now! It's just impossible not to imagine all the hidden stories behind those characters- although I'm doing more than TF2, I'm adding portal to it.

i'm... blown away. i was about to just close the page then started getting into the story, your writing style struck a real chord with the scout's personality, and although i usually dislike tf2 fanfiction, this could have easily been about honest to goodness real people. I applaud your effort, and the effectiveness of your writing voice!

This was surprisingly pleasant to read ! I say "surprisingly" because I usually never read any fanfic, but you really got me hooked on this one. When I reached the end, I was actually surprised and glad to have read the whole story ! I loved how you wrote a really interesting and long fanfic while keeping a pretty simple storyline. Congratulations and thanks for sharing this work =)
