    Summary

    “Is that—” Yamada speaks first, but Aizawa’s free hand is already at his forehead, nails digging into his scalp as the painful nostalgia threatens to strangle him. He can’t respond, he can’t even breathe, not until he reaches into the case with a quaking hand, easing the memory into his palm. He finally manages to inhale deeply, feeling the plastic prick at his calloused hands. Without a word, Aizawa sets down the pencil pouch, and slides the ring down his own finger. It’s snug. More so than before. He realizes truly how much he’s aged.

    Aizawa and Yamada study the shabby band in silence, the dark-haired man slowly turning his hand to take in every angle. The faint scent of chlorine and sunshine wafts through his senses.

    “…You loved him, didn’t you?”

    (After Shirakumo's death, a token of trash-turned-treasure haunts a grieving Aizawa throughout the years.)

    Summary

    Location: Hero Safety Commission Underground Network

    File #256

    Name: Touya Todoroki

    Age: 13

    Quirk: Cremation

    Location: Sekoto Peak

    Status: Alive

    “Stupid tears,” he croaks out, choking on a sob. His body is a live wire. It hurts. It hurts so bad but he can’t stop it. Turn up the heat. That’s what Father- no Endeavor taught him.

    He’s going-

    It’s-

    He can’t-

    “My my,” a new voice comes to his left. It’s not Endeavor’s. The voice is much too sing-songy to be his, more like Fuyumi’s used to get whenever she would tease him, or goad him into playing outside with Natsuo. “What do we have here?”

    Or, ten years ago, someone else showed up at Sekoto Peak, leaving the training center in ashes, and Touya Todoroki never to be found again. Ten years later, after a mistake on a mission, Dabi makes an entrance into the Hero world.

    Summary

    Izuku sighed wearily, hand still wedged partway into the cabinet. “I just wanted to put an extra barrier around the tools in my workshop.”

    “This is the kitchen.”

    Another sigh. “The woman at the hardware store was very convincing.”

    Alternatively: Support engineer Midoriya Izuku finally gets a chance at adoption, not knowing his new son has just been separated from his sister. On the other side of the country, Bakugou Katsuki and his new pint-sized sidekick start investigating a very important missing persons case.

    Summary

    Natsuo did not set out to become a central figure in the destruction of hero society. That did not stop the villain underworld quailing when he stepped into a room or his name trembling out in warning on the same breath as his lover’s.

    Summary

    Shouta knows, he knows, that there’s no untangling Midoriya from this war. Even if he’s put on rescue duty, even if he’s as far away from action as he can get — Midoriya Izuku is going to be the center of it all, even if it kills him. 

    Back then, Shouta told him, There is nothing poetic about a martyr.

    Midoriya answered, I’m not a poet, sensei. I’m a hero.

    Damn these kids. Damn his stupid heart.

     
    Or, a war, the children in it, and the adults that are supposed to keep them safe. Featuring asking for forgiveness, of forgiveness, the price of being a martyr, the hero's choice, and the poet's.
