    Summary

    When Thomas Paine wrote about 'the times that try men's souls' he was writing of events in his own lifetime - but trying times aren't limited to the late 18th century. It's everyone's favorite spy ring a little over a hundred and twenty years in the future -- and with 120% more artillery barrages, airplanes, women's rights, trench raids, and just the tiniest bit of jazz.

    Summary

    Trolls and humans have been at war for twenty years. The surface of Earth is little more than a massive war zone. Humans have fled to the safety of the sky, where a massive floating kingdom, known as Skaia, has been established. Trolls have gathered in the sprawling underwater metropolis of Alternia. Neither territory is perfect, but years of war have nurtured countless numbers of residents willing to fight for their home.

    Amidst all this is a brother-sister fighter pilot duo from the Nation of Skaia, and a pair of Alternian dissidents. When the four meet, their worlds begin to fall apart, only to be reassembled in the most unexpected ways.

    Summary

    Ariel would look back, almost a hundred years back, look back to her past and trace her sins and mistakes to that long-ago moment, to that desire to know more, to ask for more than what she was given. Ariel would look back with a thousand words that crowded her tongueless mouth, as the world turned underneath her bleeding feet and wonder to herself, was it truly worth it - all of it - to know what I know now?

    Summary

    Izuku: Perhaps it was not the best idea to have signed up for the "war to end all wars". He made a lot of new friends though such as Iida!

    Bakugou: He knew Strawberry Shortcake for a long time. When they were children, he smacked his shoulder against him (he is still not sure if it was accidental or on purpose) which made him drop the books that he was carrying. One thing led to another and they started full-out brawling in the streets.
