    Summary

    "You can't be serious." Jonathan Sims raises his eyes at last to properly look at Georgie, expecting her to laugh and make some quip about finally getting him to put the damn book down, at least.

    "Well, I am," she shoots back.

    He sets his book aside and turns fully towards her, betrayal clear on his face. "A blind date, really?"

    Jon makes the frankly terrible decision to go on a blind date with one Martin Blackwood. Fate ensues. AU where Jon and Georgie are still friends, Georgie likes finding dates for her friends, Martin doesn't work at the institute, and everyone is just a bit happier while canon spooky stuff goes on in the background. Takes place juuust barely pre-canon in the beginning but catches up quickly. Inspired as usual by the wonderful conversations with my friend RavenXavier/somuchbetterthanthat.

    Summary

    “My life is a nightmare,” Dabi muttered blankly.

    “Nah, this is hilarious,” Hawks said, and while he wasn’t explicitly laughing, Dabi knew that those weird little chirps he was letting out were pointed at him. “Imagine if we go through all this effort and you don’t even have some sort of dramatic background or tragic backstory to justify you being this emo, you’re just a hot topic junkie or something.”

    “That’s fucking worse.”

    Or,

    Dabi has amnesia and keeps reading conspiracy theories about himself in an attempt to figure out who he is, gets the League in on it, and they dismantle organized crime, revolutionize society, and ravage the hero system in the process. Hawks suffers.

    Summary

    "Dish duty."

    "The fuck does that have to do with anything?"

    "You had dish duty Monday, Wednesday, and Friday," Natsuo says, suddenly feeling a new kind of indignation rise in him- the kind that can only come when one sibling has inconvenienced another. "We thought you were dead for ten years, but you weren't. So you've been skipping your dish duty for ten years. Three days a week, fifty-two weeks in a year. Do you know how many you have to make up for?"

    He looks too stunned to answer but behind him, Shigaraki says, "One thousand five hundred and sixty."

    Natsuo nods once and looks back at Touya. "What he said."
