    Summary

    Four years after graduating from Samwell, Nursey can honestly say he loves his life.
    He just finished his third novel. He eats like a somewhat responsible adult. He lives in a small two-bedroom apartment with his best friend, who cooks them fancy Instagram recipes for dinner and binges new Netflix series with Nursey on the couch and knows how to deal with the anxious voice in Nursey's head better than anyone (especially Nursey).
    And yeah, Nursey is kind of totally in love with Dex, has been for going on five years thereabouts, and all of Nursey's friends and family are adamant that the feelings are reciprocated and Nursey should just go for it , but, well. He and Dex have a good thing going, and maybe something romantic could be good, too, but the prospect of ruining what they have is terrifying enough for Nursey to let things just stay the same.
    Then there's a car accident, a transfer of guardianship, and a little baby girl with the widest smile Nursey has ever seen, and the change becomes inevitable.

    And Kageyama could pretend like he didn’t care one way or the other all he wanted, Shouyou wasn’t going to let him pout his way through winter holidays with that grim-reaper look on his face.

    Summary

    Settling down with each other is naturally what comes after being dorm neighbors for years. It’s time to navigate through adulthood together, to live the daily grind of being pro-heroes, to learn more than they thought they’d like to know about each other, about themselves.

    Or how Bakugou and Kirishima find a way to call each other “home” and struggle with the realization that once all their bills are on auto-pay, the only thing they still have to deal with is this pit full of feelings they have ignored for too long.
