It's been years since the Paranormal Liberation Front war had concluded. Endeavor is long dead, the commission is gone, and society has managed to keep moving forward. With his wings fully grown back, Hawks is out patrolling on Christmas eve when he and Dabi cross paths for the first time since that fateful event. Hawks wouldn't normally be so shaken but he's sick on top of the freezing weather and can't seem to control his panic. Meanwhile Dabi is ready to accept his deserved death at Hawks' hands only to end up taking him back to his apartment to help care for the sick hero.

Everyone knew Hawks got a new crush every day. He would wake up, and someone with a glittery hairpiece would walk past and bang—that was Hawks’ crush for the day. He’d gush about them, and mope around dreamily. It never lasted more than a day. Dabi found it tolerable, that way.
And then one day turned to two, and Dabi realized that Hawks was still crushing on the same person. And if what Spinner said was true, had been for months now. Somebody with cerulean eyes and black hair, and how had Hawks phrased it—a snarky personality that obscured a much softer interior. Who the fuck did Hawks have a crush on? Dabi might just accidentally push them off a building and into a pit of vipers, he just had to figure out who they were first.
Or: featuring card games, Todoroki angst, accidental identity reveals, Dabi’s terrifying fanbase, the League of softies, the adoption of the LOV + Hawks by one Todoroki Rei, and many, many shiny things.

Hawks was drunk. Dabi knew, not because he smelt of alcohol, but because of what he’d just said. The hero had been here before him, he must have drunk far more than just the half-empty glass of whiskey in his hand to be saying things like that though.
“No,” Hawks murmured, his eyes scouring every inch of Dabi that wasn’t hidden by his clothes. His gaze traced the lines in his hands and then travelled up, marvelling along his jaw and cheek, running across the villain’s scruffy hair like he was wondering if it was soft the way Dabi always ached to touch Hawks’ wings. “You’re beautiful.”
Sharp pain knocked the breath from his lungs. You liar…
Or: Dabi knows that Hawks is a spy. He knows all the tender looks, the soft touches, the fond smiles, they’re all lies. Just more ways for Hawks to get close to him. Afterall, Dabi is well aware that he looks like an animated corpse, and there’s little on the inside worth loving. So…why does the hero look at him like he hasn’t even noticed the scars yet?

Dabi doesn’t mind the way he looks. He’d just like it better if it didn’t cause him pain.
The staples, the scars, destroyed indigo skin; it’s an aesthetic, sure, but it still hurts. Dabi tries to unclench his teeth. He aches to cling onto something - collapse into a bed, clutch a pillow against his stomach, maybe even hug Hawks.
Hug Hawks? What is he thinking? Shaking his head, Dabi tries to snap himself out of it. Hugging his rival isn’t going to make the pain any better. Hugging his rival won’t do anyone any good.
or; dabi and hawks' stakeout doesn't go as planned. dabi's in pain, and hawks wants to help.
