  5. Summary

    Midoriya Izuku is a university sophomore, a fanboy, quirkless. On the list of things he is not: a hero.

    That's why he's more surprised than anyone when he rescues Todoroki Shouto, his favorite pro hero, from a deadly villain attack. His actions fling him into the media spotlight, grabbing the attention of the entire country, including Todoroki himself. But Todoroki actually wants to get to know him past the headlines.

    Izuku finds himself living a story straight out of a fairy tale, one where the mysterious, handsome prince is played by the real-life superhero he has always admired. But Izuku is convinced he's the ugly duckling, not the swan; could he ever be remarkable enough to get his happily ever after?

    Summary

    Over the course of nine years, Felix and Dimitri grow up, apart, and back together again — Felix's personal growth is very much the same process.

    Nowadays, there are a lot of things that Felix can do that he once thought would be impossible for him – for example, he can pray at Glenn’s tombstone without crying; for another, he can ignore Dimitri when he looks like he’s in pain. But he can’t sleep in his old bedroom without recalling things that he’d rather forget about, and he can’t walk by the trophy case full of Glenn’s old accolades without feeling like he is only the shadow of a giant.

    People are cremated and buried when they die, and Felix wishes he could do the same for his memories. If only he could burn those old thoughts and throw the ashes to the winds, if only he could molt out of those past feelings and leave the shell of them behind to fly elsewhere, if only he could bleed those remembrances from his body and let it heal from the years of venom circulating through his system – if only he could stop making such meaningless wishes.

    Summary

    Black Eagles route. Felix travels to Fhirdiad, and Dimitri realizes that the guillotine of inevitability hangs over them in more ways than one.

    The pre-morning glow is almost ethereal, and Dimitri unconsciously holds his breath for a few seconds as he considers how Felix looks when the sky behind him is painted in muted pastels. The word beautiful surfaces in Dimitri’s mind, but quickly sinks into a pile of other rejected descriptors – after careful consideration, he settles on devastating.

    Dimitri begins to say, “You look like – ”

    “You had better not be about to say that I look like Glenn,” Felix cuts in.

    “No,” Dimitri says, but he smiles ruefully because Felix does, even if he wasn't thinking it. “You look like Kyphon.”

    A few seconds pass. Then, Felix reaches out to grab Dimitri’s hand in between his and pulls Dimitri forward, out of the shadows of the castle and into the light of the rising sun. He looks up at Dimitri, eyes ablaze with an emotion that Dimitri can’t easily describe: something fierce, something prideful, something profoundly sad.

    “I don’t think I did,” Felix says, “but perhaps I resemble Kyphon now.”

    Summary

    Felix never realized how much commitment could be shown just in choosing to spend the night until, well, he actually had someone to commit to. Or, he figured out he had someone to commit to.

    (It was a mutual figuring out. The results are worth the wait.)
