    Summary

    Midterms always sucked, no matter what the content was. That was the motto Kaminari Denki believed in, and no, not because he failed each and every one of his midterms throughout his life, but because midterms were just evil incarnate.

    He didn’t really know why he sucked so much at exams. He was fairly decent at writing and not so decent at using his quirk, but he was trying. Didn’t that count for something? A for effort or some bullshit like that, right?

    ***

    Izuku had always been an excellent student and never had trouble with written assignments. He excelled, to be quite honest.

    It was also the only area he was allowed to excel at and not be mocked for doing good, but that was something else entirely.

    Summary

    "There you are, Midoriya Izuku."

    By all means, it should have been the soft, calm way Kacchan spoke that clued him in. It should be the fact that he had not seen his childhood friend since that horrible night in the mountains where Izuku had been just too weak and slow to reach him in time.

    But its not.

    It's how the face and the hair were the same but the person hiding behind his eyes was different. What were once bright, lively eyes full of energy were now alight with something deceptive and sinister and wrong , hiding among familiar ruby red like a snake in the grass. The sight of that angular face, not darkened by its usual frown but smoothed out by eerie, unnatural, uncharacteristic calmness set the hair at the back of his neck on end.

    Kacchan then smiles. It's a soft grin, as pliant and serene as the look in his eyes. It's the smile of someone who has all the time in the world. Someone who could do anything they wanted and they were confident that the world would bend to their will.

    It's at that moment that Izuku understands that the person behind those eyes wasn't Kacchan at all.

    (Or; In the face of mortality, All for One makes a decision.)

    Summary

    Kurosaki Ichigo had been gone a week, swiped from one second to the next from a street in Karakura without a trace left for them to follow. Now he was leaned against a tree in Soul Society and looked like he had been through hell. His robes were tattered and frayed as if years had passed, blood dripped from his limp left arm, and his hair was longer and uneven with knots of what she hoped was dirt and not clotted blood. His reiatsu was more wild and unthethered than she had ever seen.

    In the end, he fails to protect everyone but somehow Ichigo has found his way back and has a chance to fix what was destroyed. Including himself.

    Summary

    13 years ago, Wei Wuxian ran away from what he had done, turning his back on his friends, his family, his future, and the one person who had began to matter to him the most.

    Now, on the cusp of thirty, Wei Ying finds himself back where it all started with a low profile job, exactly two friends in all of the country, a masked neighbor who seems to be a different person entirely than what everyone says, and too many memories he would rather forget.

    At the same time, his old classmates are turning up dead in a grisly manner...and the prime suspect is him. Worst of all, the head investigator for the case is none other than Lan Wangji, the person Wei Ying wants to avoid at all costs.

    Summary

    The first time Wonwoo sees Junhui, he doesn’t have any clue who he is

     

    “I’m so sorry- I wasn’t watching where- Your coffee-!” The man rushed out in a split second, letting go of Wonwoo’s arm and he immediately felt like he needed that touch again, but he forced himself to let go of the man’s waist. He looked almost scared, his cheeks and ears flushed a bright red in what Wonwoo guessed was embarrassment.
    “It’s fine.” Was all he managed to get out, scanning over the man’s face and trying to memorize it as quickly as his mind would let him.

    And he makes Wonwoo late to class without the coffee that was supposed to keep him awake.

    Summary

    Tony knew what he had to do, accepted his fate, was prepared to sacrifice everything to save the universe. Still, it was a gut-punch to see the look in Strange's eyes, to *know*.

    But some fates can't be fought, some are just...inevitable.

    Summary

    After the fiasco at Guanyin Temple, Jiang Cheng is, to put it simply, a complete and utter mess. He still can't face Wei Wuxian, still runs away from the knowledge that the warm, shining core isn't his. Jiang Cheng is slipping, the rage, fury, and hate are washed away, leaving him cold and lonely.

    Lan Huan is bitter. His warm smile warps into a malformed quirk of his lips, and his eyes are blank. He should have done something, anything. He knows now, don't trust so easily, or he would get hurt.

    Or, a fix-it cause I can't bear to leave both of them hurting and alone. ABO to make things a lil more interesting!

    Summary

    Summary

    In a world where witches are treated like Indentured servants, Young witch Tao is forced to become the caretaker of a group of supernaturals who seem to be nothing but hostile towards him. As things happen, Tao is forced to deal with events of his past and his family, while simultaneously trying to figure out what is going on with the new group of people he has to deal with.

     

    Tao scoffed, he couldn’t believe the demanding tone in the words written on the paper. His job was to take care of the place, yes, but he had been instructed to do more than that. The owner had said Tao had to help the beings inside; with their schooling, their tasks, their appointments. There was no way he could do that without talking to them.

     

    Sure, he had also been informed that all the previous caretakers had been scared away, but Tao wouldn’t be able to quit or leave. The man in charge had made sure Tao had gotten as little information as possible. He had no idea of who or what was in the house,nor their reason for being there instead of wherever they had come from. Maybe he would find out over time, but for now, he doubted it.
