    Summary

    “Do you believe in ghost stories, Furihata Kouki? I asked you in the very beginning… What sort of story is this? Is it a fairy tale, about your gentle, red-eyed prince? Or a tragedy, about a family who was cursed from the start?”

    Akashi and Furihata are best friends, but they’re both holding on to a few secrets. Akashi is struggling to face the darkness of his past, a strict and painful childhood that he doesn’t fully remember. Meanwhile, Furihata has been dreaming about Akashi every night—and not in a platonic way.

    Then Furihata has an unexpected encounter with Akashi’s other self, who makes a strange request. Soon Furihata is keeping more secrets than he can count, and fighting to keep his newfound feelings hidden, from both of Akashi’s selves. But what will happen when he learns more about the darkness lurking in Akashi’s past?

    “Who are you, Furihata Kouki? And who is the true Akashi Seijuurou?”

    Summary

    But the stories of the strings, now those were stories he loved. Maybe in a modern retelling, instead of red strings, two people could be tied together by crimson feathers.His favorite stories, though few and far between, there were the tales of those who could see the strings, who could see the lines of their destiny interwoven from birth. Hawks was not one of the lucky few.

    No, instead he saw the candles.

    Summary

    No matter how far he might run or how hard he may try to hide, he couldn't escape his past forever. Secrets and mysteries had a habit of coming to light in time.

    Holding out her palm, Shiromori summoned up the traces that she was following and manifested them as flowers. The red lotus was who she was searching for, an old friend who didn’t know when to stop running. She couldn’t be more than a few towns away from him by now.

    But tangled together with his aura, nearly inseparable at this distance, were three more flowers. A bright blue orchid, a wilting yellow sunflower, and a lavender rose that no longer had a scent. Finding her Lotus would almost certainly lead to finding at least one of the others. The ghost could be an annoyance if he tried to interfere, but the Orchid or the Sunflower would simply be appetizers.

    Summary

    In a world where everyone has a partner--someone they are bound to through life and death, whether it be a lover or a sibling--Bakugou does not have one. Everyone learns who they are bound to through dreams. When the dreams begin, they leave him confused. The red, the dog and the blacksmith’s hut mean nothing to him. The dreams did not tie into anyone he knew, and he was confident they meant nothing.

    Until Midoriya Izuku invites on a quest to retrieve a cure for Yagi Toshinori, who was fatally ill and on his deathbed. But when he meets a blacksmith that he finds familiar, he decides to stay back and aid him on an unrelated journey to save the world, leaving Midoriya and the others to cure All Might. Maybe his choice had been a mistake. Maybe it was the exact thing he needed. Because when they met, Bakugou knew he knew the guy, but he was unsure from where.

    Their fate seemed to be tied by three words. "I know you."
