    Summary

    Endeavor dies.

    He dies in excruciating physical agony alongside what he can only think to describe as a state of complete emotional paralysis. He dies in a swirl of scorching white-blue flame, as beautiful as it is deadly, and he takes a final breath that’s choked with ash and grime and dust and so much heat.

    And then—

    “The symbol I strove to be…” he hears All Might saying, somewhere to his left. “That isn’t the path for you to follow. Take your time to figure out the way you ought to do things.”

    Summary

    A long-distance call certainly isn’t the way Laguna had wanted to bond with his son after more than two years of no contact whatsoever. He certainly gets way, way more than he had expected, though, and he is more than happy and relieved after it all.

    Summary

    It was just complicated. Kacchan had changed. Izuku had changed. What was between them was constant—Kacchan was always there—but even constants, Izuku supposed, could change, too.

    ...You saved me, sometimes you say Deku and it doesn’t sound so much like an insult, you say it like you mean it, you say it like you mean me.

    After the war ends and the dust settles, Izuku is left in pain and feeling useless. There's still so much to do and people to save, and it's just... too much for one person.

    And then there's Kacchan.

    Summary

    As she approached the actually rather unremarkable looking young man, she felt a swell of doubt. Was he really who she’d thought he was? Spider-Man had been a giant of a man, someone she could easily imagine at the front of her train, gripping hundreds of webs with power enough to crush the train car into the shape of his body.

    This boy looked barely able to carry his overstuffed backpack. With his Oxford shirt and jeans and neatly combed hair, he could have been the poster child for a 1950s science scholarship. Not someone you imagined facing down an eight-armed psychopath on a speeding train.

    Half convinced she’d imagined the whole thing, Maggie crossed the diner and stepped up to his table. After a moment he noticed her, lifting his attention from an open book full of equations and cracker crumbs to look right at her.

    All doubt vanished when Maggie looked into his blue eyes and round face. It was him. No question. It was Spider-Man, right here at her table, waiting to order breakfast from her.
