    Summary

    On the eve of the twenty-third birthday, Mr. and Mrs. Nikiforov held a competition for their son’s hand in marriage. If within four years, an individual was able to discern the scents of over a hundred and three vials, the victor would have their blessings. However, if their son, Viktor Nikiforov, was the first to distinguish the scents, he can live to see twenty-eight as a free man.

    Summary

    "Is something wrong?”

    Yes. Everything is wrong. He's playing house while zombies are roaming around outside and eating people, and the chance of him being smack dab in the middle of a thriller plot as the lead character with Taehyung being some sort of terrifying sociopath killer is at least some part plausible and he's probably going end up dead but happy, or he's going to end up having to kill Taehyung but be totally miserable after.

    “No, nothing's wrong.” Jungkook says instead.

    ~*~

    (Or: The world has ended thanks to zombies. But Jungkook chops wood, folds the laundry and asks Taehyung what's for dinner.

    It's probably too good to be true.)

    After a series of hardships and childhood trauma, Isak Valtersen is forced into the gruelling world of street prostitution, a nightmare in which he feels completely alone.

    When Even pulls up to Isak's corner in the early hours of a dreary Thursday morning, neither of them can expect how similar their respective desires are, despite their vastly different social rankings.

    Summary

    It started off as a suggestion, one of Midoriya’s brilliant ideas, of sorts- teach the Heroics class in Iida's stead, share his insights and frustrations about the hero industry to a new generation of students.

    Standing in front of a nearly empty classroom, however, it takes Shinsou his all not to curl into himself with rejection.

    Summary

    When you're a Quirkless orphan on the streets, you have to fight twice as hard for just about everything. Survival. Respect. Allies. Most of the time, you're just barely scraping by. And, for that matter, so is everyone else around you.

    So Izuku does what he does best: he helps. Sometimes that means mediating gang disputes; other times, it's something as simple as grocery shopping. It's not like anyone else will, after all.

    With so many hopes riding on him, there's only ever been one option. Quirk or no Quirk, UA or no UA—he's going to become a hero.

    Summary

    A world where the Avatar has disappeared from memory. Where Sozin’s Conquest was successful. Where the unsteady order of the empire is threatened as members of the royal family are picked off one by one and lines are slowly drawn in the sand.

    One last hope for peace forces an unlikely alliance between a homesick waterbender, a carefree Air Nomad, a runaway Earth Kingdom heiress, and the fire lord's inscrutable son. Together they must learn to shed old enmities and become the balance they seek to restore to the world.

    OR:

    The avatar has four heads.

    Summary

    The Omega Keys revive Cybertron, and the battlefront of the Autobot-Decepticon War moves back to the homeworld. Troops of both sides roaming the galaxy start to return, and the war goes on. But after eons and eons of seemingly meaningless battles over the devastated Cybertron and energon scraps everyone is feeling tired and bitter, and the will to fight is at all-time low. This is the perfect time to dig up some old traditions and laws and push the guilt and responsibility on the shoulders of those who started it all, thus allowing the rest to move on towards the dream of a peaceful future.

    But getting rid of the consequences and burdens of the past is a long, painful process, far from happy and even further from the end, and no scapegoat is strong enough to carry away all the grief, loss and grudge of a people with a history of such oppression and cruel war.

    Summary

    It’s as if he’s inhaling a breath of snow and ashes—a shock and choke in his throat, strangely reminiscent of the day he realized that the birthmark blooming on his shoulder was identical to the drawings on his childhood friend’s desk.

    Now, twelve years later, it only confirms Izuku’s impending doubts that, yes, he is now legally claimed by Katsuki Bakugou.

    Summary

    Luna Lovegood browses a Daily Prophet article explaining in detail how Tom Riddle did nothing wrong and how Harry Potter is a pureblood supremacist fascist. Surely, they’ll make perfectly sound arguments which have some basis in reality. Obvious satire is obvious. And one shot.

    Summary

    This is what society seems to agree on:

    Alpha's are powerful, Beta's are neutral, and Omegas are submissive. It's simply nature. Anyone who tries to go against it is ridiculed for not following the rules of the world.

    Bakugou Katsuki says fuck that! He's about to show this shitty world why they can't fit him into their perfect plan.
