    Summary

    This is not how Tooru wanted to spend his day. It's not his fault he's so in tune with the spirits. He didn't ask to have his house haunted—he’s not even getting paid for this.

    But unfortunately, they won't go away until he figures out how to help them be at peace.

    "Okay," Tooru says, "so Chibi-chan, you foolishly summoned Tobio-chan's restless spirit, and he's still too clueless to figure out how to move on, hmm?"

    --

    Tooru prefers not meddling in the affairs of the dead. Sometimes, however, their spirits don't give him that option.

    Summary

    The years that Izuku spent as a prisoner of the fair folk have left him wary of them, always afraid that they may return to disrupt his peaceful life and drag him back into servitude. But when he sees a young man fleeing from them one evening, he throws his fears aside to help. It's a good thing he does; it's difficult to make close friends these days, and Shouto seems to understand him in ways that few others do.

    Shouto knows he can't keep his secret forever; Izuku is clever, and Shouto's Archfey father is relentless. If the truth is revealed, he has everything to lose: both his freedom, and his one chance at happiness.

    Summary

    ' "What," Hinata says, "like you're suddenly going to become a kabedon master?"

    The idea itself is hilarious. Kageyama has all the timing and subtlety of a tyrannosaurus in a china shop. Hinata sees no reason to be wary.

    "We'll see," Kageyama says darkly. "We'll see." '

    --

    When Hinata introduces Kageyama to the concept of kabedon, he isn't expecting to create a monster. But all origin stories have humble (sometimes very humble) beginnings...

    Summary

    “Takumi,” Souma spoke up. “Did you come here with anyone?”

    “I did,” Takumi chirped, propping his head up. He stared at Souma with admiration, never daring to look away. “But she’s gone. It’s just me here now.”

    Takumi inched closer – dying to be near Souma as his breath hitched. He watched Souma closely, unable to calm his racing heart as Takumi anticipated Souma’s words. Though, when Souma finally spoke up again, it was as if Takumi’s world suddenly stopped.

    “Then I guess I’ll just have to keep you company.”
