Hawks catches sight of the tingling spot of skin. His gut clenches in fear as he comes to a realization.
It isn't blood. It's ink.

"It really doesn't have anything to do with you," Hawks tries to explain, which obviously backfires.
"The fuck it doesn't!" Dabi lunges forward, grabs the collar of Hawks' compression shirt and yanks Hawks up to growl in his face. "You murder someone for me, you do something that could get you killed, for me, and it doesn't have anything to do with me?"
"Okay," admits Hawks, "When you put it like that—"

"You want to get boba," Dabi asks flatly, not really a question. His arms cross over his chest. The 'with me,' remains unsaid, but Hawks hears it loud and clear. Hawks rolls his eyes.
"Yes! Oh my god, stop making such a big deal over it. Do you want me to buy you a drink or not?"

One month after @hawks_unofficial's initial viral post, the blog titled "Quirk Analysis Blog for the Future", otherwise known as "Q. A. B.", has gone from an average of 10 views per post to an average of 20,000 views per post.
Midoriya Izuku does not know how to view the impressions analysis for his suddenly popular blog, and only notices that sometimes, people actually comment on his posts now. He does not google himself or his moniker and thus does not see the rise in online articles and speculation.
He is unaware that the "kyuu-ei-bee" he begins to hear about in passing refers to his own blog. He does not have a Twitter account.
At the time, Midoriya Izuku is 15 years old.

Hawks panics. "Okay, alright, jeez, you caught me, I..." Hawks hesitates, gulps; tumbles forward, "Have no idea who you are." The eyebrow is still raised. "...Sorry?"
Crispy Cream doesn't say anything for a long moment. The mental pressure it creates makes Hawks want to babble, but he manages to hold his tongue this time.
"I can't tell if you're screwing with me or what," Crispy Cream drawls.
"It's the 'or what'," Hawks offers.

Hawks is in over his head; Dabi is waiting for Hawks to either catch up or wise up.
