    Summary

    Sometimes, Karma has a way of biting people in the ass.

    On some level, Katsuki should’ve known that his misdeeds would eventually catch up to him. He spent years holding himself in such high regard and watching as adults did the same. In his head, he could do no wrong. In his brain, he was a god.

    It was as if the world had given him wings of feather and wax, without so much as a warning on how to manage them. The wings were much like his quirk, offering him a chance to reach skies far beyond his understanding.

    And much like Icarus, he flew far too close to the sun.

    Pride and arrogance are Katsuki’s biggest flaws. But’s not until Inko Midoriya dies that he learns the importance of shame and humility.

    Summary

    These are little poetic blurbs to water your crops and break my kneecaps.
    Your crops? Consider them watered.
    My knees? Obliterated.

    When I can't sleep I write these things. Some are satiric. Some are not. Are they cringey? Maybe. Do I care? Maybe a little if someone decides to roast me.

    Also every blurb has its own special link to something.

    On a more serious note:
    If words are instead the windows to the soul, I hope that mine are stained glass

    Summary

    Smack! A snowball collided with the side of Wilbur’s head.

    “Hey, Wil-bur!” Tommy shouted, barreling forth with another snowball. It flew past Wilbur, who nearly fell to avoid it. “Bitch,” Tommy mumbled.

    “What do you want, gremlin?” Wilbur pressed, mildly amused.

    “I want you to stay!”

    “No. We’ve been over this—”

    Tommy’s third throw powdered into Wilbur’s face.

    ~or~

    Wilbur is revived.

    Except whenever he sleeps, Ghostbur takes over and brings him back to the Arctic, where Philza lives. And every time Wilbur wakes up, he runs away, off to repeat the same mistakes that had once driven him insane.

    Summary

    He understood why Icarus had flung himself into the sky, soaring higher and higher until he could go no more. Because burning himself alive in the name of rebirth was the sweetest, softest, most agonising pain imaginable.

    Summary

    "You're Perseus, slayer of Gorgons. You're Heracles, with his legendary strength. The sun that melted Icarus' wings." Satoru leans in closer, the mere inches between the two of them tantalising - raising goosebumps along Suguru's collarbone, where his fingertips lightly skim, spear forgotten. "But most importantly, you're Satoru Gojo. Their chosen one, their achilles. The one who'll remain with them for centuries."
     

    ///

    Or, where Gojo Satoru is destined for glory, and Suguru Geto's just someone painfully human.

    Summary

    The wax burned as it dripped down onto his skin. Hoseok barely noticed. His lungs screamed as the oxygen was burned right out of them, Hoseok relished in the fire that consumed him with every breath. The open air all around him and nothing but water below to break his fall, it was everything he had spent a lifetime dreaming of. He was free. He was flying.

    He was falling.

    Summary

    When four great powers come together - they form a typhoon. Volleyball was how they met, but it wasn't what kept them together. Two owls, a cat and a crow banded together - and they formed a unit.
    Words wrapped around hearts and hands roamed on skin. Lips were soothing and eyes were kind.
    In a monogamous world, falling into each other's love wasn't easy or obvious - but it was inevitable. Together, they were invincible.

    ''I never believed men could wear a halo
    never believed in the power of a say-so
    but somehow, against all these humanly bounded odds
    I came face to face with three of the Gods''

    Or, Levi and Erwin and the sun that lights their path.
