Not sure who the scanlator is or when it was done, as the link was to a Imgur upload and it's pages seem ungooglable. If anyone knows who it was/when it was, that'd be helpful. My guess is it was done on /u/, but I'm not sure.

Is there a name for the postulate that the more lighthearted a series is, the darker fans will try it make it and vice-versa?

Blizzard should see this, I think that would be pretty interesting for them.

To be fair, Overwatch can be pretty dark. I mean, you have Tracer who's a stray bullet from becoming a ghost lost to time, D.Va who is a child soldier, Reaper who's basically a tormented undead, and everything to do with Widowmaker. Widowmaker alone probably pushes it darker than most works.

Right, but those dark elements are never really what the series is trying to sell. All media have dark and light aspects to some extent, whether or not the creators realize/accept it. But the brightly colored world of OW where everyone has a laughing emote is largely trying to present itself as a fun and hopeful world, even with some serious subject matter lurking in the background. The kind of super-edgy, soap opera drama content fans like creating totally clashes with the overall emotional aesthetic Blizzard is trying to sell for OW.

On one hand, this was fabulously heartwrenching. On the other hand, I kind of want to give Mercy a big headbutt and cry.

Can't take this seriously no matter how hard I try. Rather than feel depressed, I cringe.
Probably has to do something with the fact that this is a fucking Overwatch doujin.

I uh, don't really get this, can someone explain

Mercy(Doctor Angela) and D.Va (Hana) hung out together and fell in love. There was going to be a civil war of sorts and Mercy and D.Va had ideologies of the opposing sides. Rather than fight D.va, Mercy instead plotted to make sure D.va would not be able to fight in the war by breaking her hands (Mercy also had a way to heal D. Va's hands after the war ended.)

D.Va ended up fighting in the war anyways (probably using the mech as her hands) and the two met on the battlefield. The results of the battlefield are unclear but Mercy wakes up and finds D. Va's lifeless corpse in front of her. In the final panels Mercy tries using her cure (which she intended to use to fix D.Va's hands) to resurrect D.Va. It fails, D.Va is dead forever, sad end.

Hgnnnnnnnn, such good angst and drama. I haven't had something this good in a while. Last time I felt like this was when Takemiya Jin stuff rained down. Ugh the pain is so great.

I thought that by the end, mercy would "nerf this" D.va's meka and blow both of them.

A good summary, but one detail is missing: after Mercy regains consciousness, it is strongly implied that D.Va shielded her from the brunt of a fatal attack with her mech and her own body. In other words, even after what Mercy had done to her, D.Va still gave her life for her.

...good thing this is not my main Mercy ship. :-(

Uh.. I don't like games, and this sort is my least favorite (not to say the ones I dislike the most xD)... but this thing made me sad anyways, I even wish there was more from this author ;_; if only it wasn't based on a game but an anime/manga instead...
