    Summary

    Sero nods. “It’s the chance of a lifetime, really,” he says. “We want you to date Bakugou, for the sake of his reputation with the press. Some public appearances, a few ‘candid’ photos. For at least a couple of months.”

    “Bakugou sent you to ask me to date him?” Kirishima asks, baffled.

    “Of course not. We, his people, are asking you to date him. He’s going to have to get on board, if he wants his career to survive. And in the bargain, Riot will get all sorts of publicity, because their lyricist will be dating one of the industry’s hottest stars. A win for everyone.”

    When Kirishima Eijirou's band hits the big time, he's not prepared for his newfound fame. He's even less prepared to meet the actor he's been crushing on for years, or to start dating him as a publicity stunt. The closer Kirishima gets to Bakugou Katsuki, the more he realizes he's in over his head. But it's hard to stop, once his heart is in it.

    Summary

    “I’m so proud of you, my nephew.” Uncle cups Zuko’s face in his lined hand. The gesture is so tender, his palm so warm, that Zuko has to take a fortifying breath against the sudden swell of emotion in his chest.

    “I want to be a good leader, Uncle,” Zuko says. “I want to look after my people.”

    “You will,” Uncle says. “You are, nephew.”

     

    In a new era of peace, Zuko works to be a very different Fire Lord than his forefathers. Based on this tumblr post.

    Summary

    When Zuko dashes into the sitting room, it is with the same wide-eyed panic that he ran from Azula’s smoking hands when he was a child. Iroh bites down on a smile. Zuko looks the same, even now, a decade later with a scar blossomed over one side of his face, green and brown robes replacing the solitary reds of his childhood. His hair is puffed up around his face. He looks like a very frightened, very windswept turtle-dove.

    Zuko dives behind Iroh just as Aang breezes to a stop in the doorway.

     

    Five times Zuko hid behind Iroh, plus one time Zuko stood proudly in front of him.

    Summary

    "Let's say, best case scenario, we find your buddy and he remembers everything pre-1945 and he miraculously works his way through the rest of his trauma and comes out relatively sane on the other end. What comes next for you?"

    Good question.

    (Sequel to somebody hears you. (you know that.) Takes place somewhere between Winter Soldier and SHIELD season 2, definitely pre-Ultron.)

    Summary

    It took a moment for Phoenix to process what he was seeing. Later, he’d be convinced he’d gone temporarily blind.

    Miles gets a haircut.
