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:…
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.

(sorry for the 400 replies, but...)
I have a question... what happens to the medic's arm in the picture?
