“Todoroki…” Izuku calls, “I may not have had the same experiences as you, but I know what it feels like to be obsessed with something you really want. It consumes you, maybe sometimes it gives you false hope, that maybe, just maybe, things will work out for once. But denying who you are? That won’t help you, it’ll only make things worse...don’t do that to yourself.”
Todoroki stops to turn around and look at Izuku, the wind blowing through his hair. “Sounds like you speak from experience.”
Izuku cracks a small, sad smile, one that doesn’t reach his eyes. “Heh, we all have our own demons.”

“Do you think I’m a bad mentor for realizing too late?” All Might questions, eyes downcast. “I mean, all of the signs were there. I just never picked up on them, not early enough anyways. Maybe if I had, he wouldn’t have had to go through all of that.”
“If you think you’re a bad teacher for not noticing, then what does that make me?” Shouta asks with narrowed eyes.
