    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku just wants to lead a quiet, peaceful life. This is foiled by the fact that a) he can see spirits, b) his good nature demands that he help anyone he sees in trouble, and c) he, by all rights, should not exist.

    Helping the heroes who have fallen victim to the new quirk-breaking drug is a terrible idea for many reasons, the first and most important being that he hates attention and avoids it like the plague. But he's the only one who can help, so he does.

    This is, Izuku decides as he breaks in, more trouble than it's worth.

    Summary

    “‘When you’re ten it’s imaginary friends and make-believe in the sandlot. When you’re twenty, they call you dangerous and wild and a genius, and it’s all very sexy and fun. But then you’re thirty—bam!’ Izaya tips his own head back, index finger a trigger beneath his chin. ‘They diagnose you with a mental illness and throw pills at you.’”

    Shizuo’s realizing that he still has a lot to learn about the man called Orihara Izaya.

    ....that was a ride. That was one hell of a ride.

    Chilling. Just chills, all the way.

    That one part in the middle...I stopped because it was just so sharp, so bone-chilling, so perfectly placed and recognizable, horribly recognizable that it felt incredibly real, so natural it was. I stopped and just closed my eyes and breathed for minutes before I could continue and then the crest of relief when I realized I was wrong- but only by a bit.

    I think that was exactly the kind of ride, kind of adventure that Izaya and Shizuo deserved. That was the right ending for them, and it's crazy and interesting since it's not the kind of solution you'd ever expect for this problem - but it felt right - it was right.

    This line felt beautiful: "It’s such a filthy, sad image—one that makes Shizuo want to wash his hands in tears."

    Apollo and Klavier, stuck in abusive situations they can't see any way out of, meet by chance and take a Hitchcock approach: framing each other's tormentors for murder. An alternative take on/explanation of GS4, originally written for the kink meme.

    Amazing.

    Great morally gray storyline - angst, desperation, and all the quaking, shivering calm in between.

    Summary

    Phoenix and Maya finally clean out Mia's office. Far, far too many people help.

    "Jesus, Nick, you ever heard of throwing stuff out?" Maya laughs as she throws open the window, clapping her hands over the sill to shake off the dust. She's careful about where she puts her feet, Phoenix notes, despite the casual tone. It makes for a slightly awkward stance, how she steps to avoid every square of carpet Mia's body once touched. "I'd’ve thought you got rid of all this shit years ago!"

    Tears.

    Very good, slow, sunny-quiet day feeling. A day's work. And a lot of remembering. The emotions feel so sincere, a representation of aged grief I suppose. It's good.

    Summary

    He looked down, expecting to see a rock or a sandbag. Instead there was a bolt lodged in the middle of his chest, still bloodless. The second one hit before he raised a barrier, and it landed right next to the first one.

     

     

     

     

    Dorian has a heritage. Everyone from Tevinter does.
