  2. Summary

    There was a kingdom on a hill, and a prince with hair of red,
    And a forest at its borders where the prince one dark night fled.    

    In the forest was a path, but off it he did stray,
    To a cabin, and a Wolf, and with him the Lamb did lay.

  3. Summary

    Before the World Speech was first uttered,
    Before the ancestors crossed the great seas,
    Before the memory of mankind itself can remember,
    The land has been at war with the sun.

    There is no one who knows the truth behind their fight, save the gods themselves.

  4. Summary

    As the son of a huge rockstar, Shouto has grown up determined to escape being signed to his dad's record label. When he's accepted to a fine arts university to study the violin, three things become clear: he's free, he's tragically awkward, and he's thirsty as hell. Now that he can do whatever—or whoever—he wants, he doesn't know where to start. But when Bakugou Katsuki catches his eye from behind a drum set at a concert, Shouto starts to learn that making bad decisions can feel pretty damn good.

    Summary

    They stopped, and Wheeler put her hands into the pockets, considering. “Well, no. You can do pretty impressive stuff while only knowing the basics. But it’ll only do you good trying.”

    She said that like she had a specific person in mind, like she was a witness. And Neil understood. He understood that it was a story that started its pinwheeling in a past where he was absent; from then on, many things were better to keep as secrets, and he had to earn trust if he wanted to have it.

    Summary

    He understands, intellectually, that other people must do something with their day that doesn’t involve working out or getting beat up by super-powered mutant criminals or harassing one’s boyfriend into fucking them sideways. It’s just that he can’t quite picture doing it himself.

    Summary

    "Why are you like this?” Bakugou exclaims, throwing his hands up in the air.

    He’s not sure if the question is rhetorical at his own expense or if Bakugou’s actually wondering—the look on his face is almost identical in both cases.

    Before Shouto can even open his mouth to respond—he’s waffling between “Like what?” for maximum Bakugou-annoyance or “It’s the trauma.” because of the one time it made Kaminari laugh so hard he cried—Bakugou is already talking over him, scrubbing a hand down his face and sighing like talking to Shouto is the hardest thing he’s ever done.

    “Don’t fuckin’ answer that. I know why you’re like this.”

    Problem solved. Shouto says nothing.

    *

    Or, a temporary team-up leads to certain feelings-based revelations for both reluctantly involved parties. A conversation is also had. Sort of.

    Shouto is of the opinion that they should just kiss about it before they do anything else.
