    Summary

    It's like having a curtain pulled back on something he wasn't expecting to see. A surprise punch-and-judy at an up-scale restaurant, a lobster thermidor when he's ordered an ale.

    Crowley's gleefully trying to wrap his head around the fact that Aziraphale is speaking Polari. Because of course he is.

    Or: The Patron Saint of London's LGBT Community is real, and he lives in Soho.

    Summary

    Here’s the thing: it’s not a date.

    It can’t be a date, because if Todoroki Shouto—the most socially oblivious person Bakugou knows—had asked him on a date, he would have noticed.

    Conversely, if Todoroki Shouto—the most socially oblivious person Bakugou knows—had asked him on a date, and Bakugou hadn’t noticed? Well, he might just have to fling himself off the nearest cliff.

     

    (Todoroki and Bakugou are two of the smartest students at U.A.

    However, when it comes to each other, they are PROFOUNDLY stupid.)

    Summary

    “Fuck it,” Bakugou exhales angrily, more to himself, and then suddenly is leaning over Todoroki where he sits, arms by his sides and face close to his. "It doesn't matter what kind of weird mind game you're playing. I'll beat you no matter how much better than me you think you are."

    "When you're not acting out I actually respect you a lot," Todoroki corrects mildly. It's said in part because he wishes Bakugou would get over this complex and in part because he's starting to develop a knack for making Bakugou pull the face he's pulling now. "You're really not that bad these days."

    Bakugou blinks furiously, then sags abruptly, expression gone disheartened. "You've lost it. I- what's next? You gonna declare your love for me mid-battle?”

    “I don’t think so, no,” Todoroki replies, instinctively, then stills, thinking about it.

    “I’m fucking- going,” Bakugou continues, undeterred and jittery. “Fucking weirdo.”

    He's up and gone in a hurry, casting a last disturbed glance back over his shoulder, and Todoroki stays very still, looking blankly at the sky.

    Well, shit.

    He thinks he may have missed a few things while redefining his feelings.

    Summary

    “I told you outside,” Aizawa chooses his words carefully, reiterating the same point he’s made before. “My responsibility for you doesn’t end at the classroom. Every part of your life is partially my responsibility. Your father doesn’t scare or intimidate me. If you need help, I can get it for you, but you and I both know that you need to ask for it first.”

    Aizawa organizes a way for the students to go home for the holidays. Todoroki Shouto, however, gets left behind by his father. Aizawa, annoyed at Endeavor, takes Shouto under his care for the night, and is joined by a certain Yamada Hizashi.

    Summary

    “Well, it seems a bit funny…” Shinsou’s drawling voice trailed off, becoming slightly sharper by the word, “...that the three students with the most villainous quirks were set up for this.”
    Tokoyami jerked upright. “You do not mean that-.”
    “Oh he means it,” Bakugou growled out with narrowed eyes, “ pencil-ass set us up to play his goddamn villains because we’re good at it.”

    Or:
    Aizawa assigned Tokoyami, Bakugou, and Shinsou to play as the villains in the end year exam against the rest of the class.
    Aizawa accounted for Bakugou's rage, Shinsou's asshole tendencies, and Tokoyami's self-esteem.
    Aizawa did not account for the pure, unholy wrath, of three very petty teenagers who like to make a point.
