neurodivergent beckett headcanons
- she stims a lot!! when she gets excited/happy she'll flap her hands, hum, wiggle, bounce on her feet, and clap her hands! if shes upset distressed she'll rock, pace, chew, twiddle her thumbs, bounce her leg, and run her fingers through her hair.
- she's really sensitive to textures and sound! to accomodate for both, she wears gloves and something over her ears, whether its a modified hat or just earplugs.
- her special interests are history, artifacts, and flying!! she has a huge collection of artifacts and can tell you all about them because she thinks they're real neat.
- her comfort stims/items are the feeling of wind on her skin, her jetpack, and her baby drake plush. as such, she keeps a fan in her room to emulate the feeling of wind in case she can't fly atm.
- she does go nonverbal in case things become too overwhelming/she has a meltdown/gets distressed. she knows sign language but it can still be difficult talking to people so she prefers to just retreat to someplace quiet.
- she has the persona of an ace pilot because its what she grew up seeing and wishing she was like. the persona helps her emulate that shes "normal", when in reality she doesnt really know how to interact with others and is just doing what she's seen people enjoy
- her way of showing affection is by infodumping, holding hands, or cuddling. she does say "i love you" and things along those lines, but the first three have more meaning to her
- that said, she doesnt like being touched unless a.) she knows who you are and/or c.) shes okay with you doing that
- she cannot fall asleep without the aid of a weighted blanket (or just a lot of blankets)
i have three primary ones and they are go gigantic, battleborn, and, admittedly, league of legends!
go gigantic: go gigantic was a pvp game that was in open beta for years before finally being released in july 2017. it's servers unfortunately shut down a year later due to a variety of complications, but the community has found ways to continue playing. it has over 20 characters and it approaches its lore through a very interesting manner: through the use of fortune cards and skins. each card and skin has a sentence or two that provides a snippet into the world, snippets that i have pieced together in a variety of word documents. additionally, the characters interact with each other through proximity and kill lines, all of which i have recorded onto word documents.
battleborn: battleborn is both a pve and pvp game with most of my time having been spent in the pve. its story has a LOT of replay-ability as the dialogue in the missions can change with each playthrough. additionally, sometimes the characters will interact with the mission, the most notable example being "the void's edge" where every character has an interaction. there are 30 characters and they're all very talkative and it's funny hearing the things they'll say to each other. ex: "your plan is thawed kelvin. wait, i mean flawed. i SWEAR that was an accident" - mellka upon killing kelvin. a lot of people compare it to overwatch and this led to me having an intense dislike of the game as most of its fans made fun of battleborn and its characters, leading to most people to assume the game had shut down. apologies if you like overwatch but, oh man, i could go on for a while on how much i dont like it. that aside, battleborn also has canonical lgbt+ characters, with orendi being a wlw, reyna being bi, galilea and ambra being wlw and having been a thing before angsty things happened, miko having no gender (they're a mushroom that uses all pronouns bcuz mushrooms have many genders actually), etc etc!
league of legends: league of legends is a moba game with over 100 champions. it's very team and strategy based, so honestly? don't really go into matches thinking you're gonna win right away because oh man, oh man. it is known for having one of the most toxic communities so i just mute chat bcuz, yknow, no thanks not gonna deal with that. honestly? the game's pretty fun if you play with friends and keep randos muted and successfully pulling off a combo or actually doing something good will always make you !!!
for gigantic, it was june 2017! it had come to win7 and win 8 that month (it was win10 and xbone exclusive for a while) and i had actually gotten a new computer just to play it. when i started looking into the lore and started playing beckett (who is also my namesake now), i just...became hooked.
for battleborn, it was may 2016, aka when it came out. cryaotic had shared a video with the opening, i watched it, it was amazing, i had to get it. im really glad i did, because i was going through a really rough time and it really helped me through it.
for league, well, oh gosh i had heard of it when i started using fb back in...2011? 2012? around then. i liked video games and a LOT of them had to do with league. i only actually started playing it when the k/da video came out bcuz, well...im love girls and they're cute. i played it off and on but now i play it regularly with friends.
that they all have canonical lgbt+ characters honestly. people are always surprised when i tell them. i already talked about bb's earlier, but with gigantic, tyto the swift is nonbinary (they use all pronouns with the primary being they/them from what i've gathered), ramsay is bi (it's heavily implied that he and wu were a thing and i think he's got a crush on tripp), tripp is a wlw (it's implied she has a crush on imani but honestly who doesn't), and im absolutely POSITIVE that beckett and imani were a thing and they still haven't gotten over each other (i have an ENTIRE analysis on this). for league, which is where i get the most "REALLY???"s the characters are neeko, who is a lesbian, kayn, who is bi, diana and leona are wlws, graves and twisted fate are mlms, and taliyah is trans.
yes, actually. a lot, actually. i just didn't know they were s.i.s or hypervixations because i thought it was normal because my older sister, who is also autistic, had them too. i'll list the ones i can remember:
avatar: the last airbender, storm hawks, code lyoko, generator rex, danny phantom, oban star racers, okami, voltron FORCE, hero 108, warriors (the book series), kiesha'ra, guardians of ga'hoole, monster hunter, kekkai sensen, fairy tail, bleach, one piece, naruto, sonic the hedgehog, jak and daxter, ratchet and clank, and i know there's more but it's the matter of REMEMBERING and thats hard for me.
i think about them ALL the TIME and draw the characters and write about them in my free time (for gig, that is, as it's my primary special interest). i also ramble to others when i get the chance.
sometimes! not all the time, but sometimes.
oh absoLUTEly. it's usually online because i dont have many irl friends
not really :(
i love the characters, the lore, the music, and the gameplay. i'm not gonna really get into them because i don't know how to explain, but those are definitely my favorite aspects.
AAAAAA YES!!!! one of the original devs of gigantic sent me ALL of the fortune cards as well as 4 posters, 3 of them character posters (of imani, charnok, and the margrave) and one a signed poster of the title screen!!! i've also won the signed battleborn lithograph after placing first in last years lore quiz. i also got a shirt for gigantic that a friend won but then sent to me because i helped them get an ultimate pack.
yes! emotionally and creatively. i mentioned before that battleborn helped me through a really rough time and gigantic helped me creatively. thanks to it, i've got a lot of writing motivation now and it makes me happy. all have helped me with becoming a bit more social as i had a lot of difficulties reaching out to communities.
i wear the shirts and i have the posters in my room.
oh absolutely. i talked about my documents earlier but i have written down so MUCH for gigantic. if people are interested i'll probably share the documents hbdsjflk
if i could i would. except for league, because i know that riot games is trash. not all of riot games is trash, but the people with the most power are trash (if you keep track of video game news you would know that the first walkout for gaming companies was recently and it was at riot games as some of the higher ups were sexually harassing employees, and they are refusing to let the employees take them to court. i hope things can get better for the employees soon, because oh gosh
im gonna write fanfiction that no one is gonna read except for a few of my friends that i talk to the game about. im also probably gonna do some draws
absolutely yes please do i want people to talk to. they're all very interesting and fun to play and you'll love the characters please im begging you
if i was asked this a week or two ago i would've said league because i knew it was on its way to becoming a special interest. OH THE ADVENTURE ZONE THATS ONE I FORGOT but i dont wanna scroll up to put it oof. well it's here now so. either way i'm not really sure, but to become my special interest it has to have intriguing lore and good characters
gigantic has a beautiful art direction!! and it's scenery is gorgeous to look at and, combined with the ambience, it makes me go AAAAAAAAAA. battleborn uses very pretty colors and it has over 200 drawn special effects with each one being unique to the character it applies to. league has a lot of skins for a variety of different aus, these aus being like...star guardian (magical girl), project, music industry (pentakill, k/da, popstar, dj), arcade, infernal (kinda like an end-of-the-world one but caused by people summoning the god of fire who promptly turned everything to ash), etc. etc.
TELL ME OF THIS
im a bit drowsy but its go gigantic!!! it was a pvp game created by motiga and published by perfect world entertainment! unfortunately the servers shut down due to various complications but that doesnt stop me yknow. its MY CITY NOW!!!
i still play through shhh means though
this is also the game where the character in my icon is from!!
okay!! so, ignoring the pvp stuffs lets focus on characters, world, and lore!!
go gigantic takes place on this world named gig, which is filled with great beasts and magic. in this world, there are the five imperial houses: aurion, devaedra, tesserus, karakesh, and melkior. house aurion is the house that focuses on the religion of the world, which revolves around these "divine" beings called eternals!! they are allied with house karakesh, who kinda serves as the military power of the world and they talk about chivalry but :/ theyve done some not good things. house devaedra is the magic house, the house that focuses on the dark aspects of sorcery! house tesserus is the technology house, they create a bunch of neat gadgets like jetpacks, robots, cars, you name it! and, lastly, house melkior, which is the super secret house who no one really knows about.
the story starts off with the eternals arriving to gig, where they meet teth, who they anoint as the first hierophant, their speaker, essentially. they give her the ability to tame the beasts that roam the land, turning them into guardians (the guardian of aurion is leiran, who we call griffin mom). however, who i presume to be teth's sibling, lady devaedra, "stole" the gifts that teth received, using them for her own gain. this eventually leads to a conflict and i theorize that this is how aurion and karakesh came to be allies.
in the current events of the game, a whole lotta heckin bad stuff has happened. first, with karakesh, their grand duke has been murdered as part of a conspiracy (which has unfortunately also resulted in the death of aisling's father, sir cador). i speculate that this has to do with lady devaedra trying to gain control of the land. see, guardians gain their power from the land and, in return, the land is slowly altered by it. how would she be able to influence the just knights of karakesh? well, she's powerful for one, living in the rift, which was thought to be uninhabitable at first.
with karakesh having to settle their own matters, this left the current hierophant, adonaius, open to attack. devaedra had hired tripp, an assassin, to murder him, and she was almost successful too. however, she was stopped by the arrival of tyto the swift and pakko, the latter having frozen her. tyto, pakko, and the hierophant fled to the north, where they eventually arrive at the star city, the home of the eternals. tyto leaves afterwards, and the hierophant meets zandora, who tells him that war is coming.
this then leads us into the heroes of gigantic becoming associated with one house, whether its through ideals, morals, or other reasons. based on the lore cards, i presume that there is some kind of great battle, which leads to devaedra and its guardian, grenn (snake dad) being knocked out of power. i assume that this is where the pvp comes into play, aka the power races. essentially you're fighting for the control of the land, and you're allied with either leiran or grenn.
this is kinda the long story not-so-short-but-close-enough of it!!
this stuff aside, all of the characters are on the wikia (which i helped with a lil bit? just a few pages really) https://gigantic.fandom.com/wiki/Gigantic_Wiki
ive also compiled a lot of the lore quotes from the fortune cards and character skins and organized them into a couple of different google docs!: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1wTFu8LiFb72gM2IdEFeJk5UEZvdQJxxP
additionally! ive transcribed everyones voicelines: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pTfkCnEWnzLs9W9rHlt8w0BuQsIlAaNr
another thing! i've written a couple of fanfic and i have a LOT of wips: https://archiveofourown.org/users/cosmicaces/works?fandom_id=13255309
#cosmic chatter #gigantic #go gigantic #gogigantic #gigantic game #ggntc #I Love You thank you SO MUCH for asking ;o; #i have so many more things to talk about but i dont want to make a Huge post yknow #i have so many THOUGHTS #a lot of them revolve around beckett who is also my namesake #and her drama with imani and they are definitely in love #abby1 note
beckett's a lesbian. my evidence?
see this pirate skin concept? see how she has a sword? bam. the reason why beckett has bad aim with her guns is because not only is she a gay who can't aim, but she's a sword lesbian
brain: sees opportunity to infodump about my primary special interest

Beckett's dealt with all sorts of things: monsters, marauders, authority, weather, you name it! No matter what happened, she never let it get her down. There's no way that, of all things, a dream is going to affect her.
It was a dream. Beckett ran her fingers through her hair, the cold breeze sending chills down her spine. Just a dream. Her legs moved on their own accord, getting her up out of bed and into the hallway. That’s all it was. Shakily, her hands slid down, falling to clutch at her arms. A dream. She forced out a laugh, rubbing her arms as she paced back and forth, the floorboards occasionally creaking due to her repetitive movements.
Are you really going to let this bother you? You don’t get bothered by dreams.
The taste of soot lingered in her throat.
No. I’m not going to allow it. I’m better than that! I’ve dealt with so many things: monsters, marauders, authority, weather, you name it. Am I really going to let some stupid dream get to me? Ha! There’s no way I’m going to let that happen.
Satisfied with her pep talk, Beckett walked to the kitchen, downed a glass of water before returning to her room, collapsing onto her bed with a faint smile on her face. Now, all she had to do was wait for sleep to wash over her like an ocean’s tide.
Only, it never did.
Instead, all she saw when she closed her eyes were dancing flames and plumes of smoke, their acrid fumes burning her lungs until she gasped for breath. Sweat dribbled down her forehead, her eyes wide open with fear as a sickly feeling nestled itself deep in her gut.
There’s no way.
hey guys i actually wrote something! i know not many folks are familiar with this game but i would greatly appreciate it if you gave it a readhttps://archiveofourown.org/works/17249030
