    Summary

    Izuku is 11 when starts finding flowers on his desk. Some are crumpled—their delicate petals squished between other tiny fingers before falling onto his workspace—while others look fresh plucked. There are never any stems. Always, it’s just the flower head: clipped by nails or scissors right up to the stem base, like tiny beheaded gems. Maybe if he knew less, if he ignored the stomach-churning looks of his classmates and didn’t have to limp home everyday trying to hide the bruises and loneliness, he’d see them as a gift.

    But they are not roses. Not gardenias, not violets, not tulips or dandelions. They’re not love flowers.

    It takes 3 years more years of this for Midoriya to find himself on the roof, holding up the splayed petals of a red spider lily.

    In some essential way, he’s already lost the chance to be whole. But maybe, years later—he’ll take a gamble at healing.

    ...falling in love sorta helps.

    —ooo—

    In which trauma’s a bitch and Midoriya and Todoroki learn to be good to themselves by being good to each other.

    “Billy–”

     

    “Listen to me.” Billy says abruptly. “You need to leave him. Tomorrow morning, you need to– you need to go to work.” 

     

    Billy’s mind is going a mile a minute but he never looks away from Susan, never pauses for too long. 

     

    “Once Neil is gone, you wait for me to pick you up and I’ll drop you off at the police station and you talk to the Chief. His name is Jim Hopper. Ask for Jim Hopper and tell him whatever you want– tell him everything, I don’t care. You tell him you need help with filing for divorce and you don’t go back home unless you’re being escorted by at least two– three different officers, including the Chief himself.” 

     

    “But, Billy–” 

     

    “I’m serious , Susan. You leave him or he’ll start doing the same thing to you and– and to Max. Do you want that to happen to Max? You want her to end up like me?”

    Summary

    Lan Sizhui swallowed. "Madam Yu… did she hit you and Senior Wei?" He asked wettly.

    "It was worse than that, A-Yuan." Wei Sing smiles coldly. "She whipped us. Us! Children, for the crime of being born to who we were. For the crime of laughing. For the crime of smiling. For the crime of living! ….But I suppose, you would know all about the crime of living. Maybe that's why we were so taken by you. Hunted down for your parents, your name, for daring to live when they wanted you to die. I am so, so sorry, A-Yuan, that you had to feel a second of that."

    Lan Sizhui takes a breath. "Thank you, Jiejie."

    He means it. He's thankful that someone has recognized the grief in him, the grief of losing the lie he lived in his childhood, the way he mourned for Lan Qiren and Lan Xichen even though they still lived. The way he burned, with anger, with sadness, with despair. He had lost two families, in a way; the Wens, and the Lans. For now he knows he is a child who was meant to die.

    He is so grateful he lived instead.

    Lan Sizhui learns a bit more of the past, and tries to reconcile being the last Wen.

    Summary

    The young prince is about to roll his eyes at the crowd but then he makes eye contact with him. He is stunning. He has stormy silver eyes that have a playful glint to them, a stunningly bright smile, and a sharp jaw. He is tall, only an inch or two shorter than Zuko, and muscular. He isn’t bulky or anything, but his body is toned and defined. He has his head shaved and he has bright blue arrow tattoos running down his head and arms. He isn’t sure if they cover anything else because of his robes but they make him look exotic. He looks the monk over and notices that he is wearing simple bright orange and yellow robes. The robes expose his left shoulder and part of his broad, toned chest. Zuko feels his throat get dry and his face starts to heat up. Well this could be bad. Or...…

    AU fanfiction. It takes place in a world where the hundred-year war hasn’t happened. Aang still masters airbending at the same age. He was told about his Avatar status at Twelve still because he accidently bended water. He started Avatar training immediately after that. Now four years later he is being trained in fire by Zuko.

    Summary

    The streets of Aokusa glow as if they're lit on fire. The light dances, strong against the black of the night sky, and it reminds Touya he shouldn't be here; that he shouldn't be doing this. But when he looks at Akito, streetlights forming a halo behind him, he realizes for the first time in his life, he doesn't really care. Music is a form of expression, of sadness, of love, of passion, of life.

    Summary

    Marinette punched in the digits 15 and hit the call button.

    “Marinette?” Tikki’s voice sounded so tiny. “Marinette why is Plagg—”

    Marinette made herself ignore Tikki and respond to the operator with a level voice. “There’s been an accident.” She made herself look at the street sign. She rattled off the street name calmly. “I don’t know what happened—” she couldn’t say Ladybug had fucked up her aim and yanked a person right off a roof, she couldn’t, secrecy was important for the kwami even if Marinette wasn’t going to be Ladybug again after this, not with what she’d done, “but there’s a boy lying injured in the street. His leg is bleeding heavily and he doesn’t seem to be conscious.”

    “I’ll send an ambulance,” the person on the other end said after a short pause. “What else can you—”

    Marinette ended the call. There wasn’t anything else she could tell them.

    (Or, the one where everything does not go according to Wang Fu’s plan, Hawkmoth decides to use the Butterfly to its full potential after all, and Paris’ local superheroes are still a bit of a mess.)
