    Summary

    “You wouldn’t want your son to miss his bedtime, would you?” Hitoshi asks, unfazed.

    “That’s none of your concern,” Endeavor spits out and the threads that were fading are dangling in front of Shinsou’s mind, brushing against his fingertips and becoming more solid. Easy within reach.

    All he needs is to pull now.

    “It kinda is,” Hitoshi says, flatly. His heart is pounding away in his chest, beating furiously against his ribcage like it can break through and fly away like a bird. His blood is rushing in his ears, heated and slurpy from the fire that steadily rises. “Considering you ruined my plausible deniability by shouting your son and me deaf in rage.”

    Todoroki’s mouth drops a little open and the reaction would be hilarious on any other day. Normally, Hitoshi would smirk, smug over getting the drop on someone so collected and stoic with his words, but Endeavor’s face twists in outrage, his grip tightens.

    And Todoroki winces.

    Hitoshi doesn’t hesitate to pull the string. It snaps taut in his grip.

    Endeavor’s expression goes blank.

    Summary

    Kazuha pushes himself to his feet, alarmed at how okay he feels. No aching knees, no tight scar tissue in his hand, no… anything. It’s warm, sunny, the even breeze filling his ears, and ahead of him stretches a tall forest of cherry trees with crimson leaves and blanketing branches.

    And Tomo.

    Tomo, with leaves caught in his sandy hair and his arms full of cherries. He stares wide-eyed at Kazuha like a kid caught mid-bite into a cookie they shouldn’t have.

    “What the fuck?” Tomo says

    OR, Kazuha is killed by the Raiden Shogun, but the people who love him most won't stand for it.

    Summary

    “You don’t have to do this,” Izuku whispers. His voice cracks on the last word. He thinks it may be the first words he’s said in two days.

    Eri hums. “I know.”

    Neither of them make an attempt to move, basking in the light of the sun and the warmth of each other. Despite the sunny sky, Izuku can’t help but feel frigid as he stares at the gravestone of Yagi Toshinori.

    Eri comforts Izuku in the face of Toshinori’s death.

    Summary

    When they get to the dorms’ kitchen, the kettles are among the first things Shouto sees. He doesn’t exactly mean to, but his eyes just… drift over to them, taking them in.

    There are four. Three are electric, but the last one isn’t — it’s one of those older kettles, clearly well-used and well-loved, that you place on the fire to heat the water, and Ashido catches his eyes looking at it and she perks up, telling him that it was a gift from her grandmother to her mother and that she can’t believe her mother let her borrow it, and… Something inside Shouto’s chest… catches. Twists, ever so slightly, in a way that makes his breath falter.

    But it’s fine. He’s fine.

    Not all scars are physical.

    Summary

    Izuku has plans for everything.

    He plans out what to say to the cashier when ordering coffee, he plans out his homework before even opening his textbook. He has a whole ten-year plan for how he’s going to get into UA’s hero course and get his hero license fully quirkless. He plans for every wild, unlikely scenario he can think of because his anxiety gets so bad if he doesn’t go through every possible outcome, every way his life could landslide into disaster–– but Izuku never planned for this.

    For once, he doesn’t have a plan and he doesn’t have time to think of one. All he can see is Yagi-san’s lined, kind face looking resigned as he stares down the villain in his shop. Yagi-san, who is the closest thing to a father figure Izuku has ever had.

    Izuku doesn’t think. He just moves.

    (Or: Izuku saves the number one hero, gets a hero license way earlier than anyone wanted, realizes that maybe hero society isn’t as great as he thought it was, and everything just kind of falls apart from there.)
