“Natsu!” Shouto whisper shouts. “This is—” he lowers his voice as he says his name, “Dabi. He kidnapped my classmate! He’s with the League of Villains!”
“I know what’s on his resume, yeah,” Natsuo says drily. Dabi chokes on a laugh.
Shouto glowers at him, feeling distinctly betrayed. Fuyumi sighs shakily.
“Touya,” Fuyumi says. “What happened to you?”
“Whaddya think?” Dabi says bitingly. “How d’you think I got these scars?”
“But that doesn’t mean—you’re a villain, for crying out loud,” Fuyumi’s voice is barely above a whisper. “One who’s notorious for trying to kill Endeavor, at that.”
“It all adds up, doesn’t it?” Dabi laughs wryly.

“She’s soft and huggable,” Shouto says, shifting on the bed to accommodate the other boy. “You’re angry and spiky. And you probably have rabies.”
“Say that ag—!”
“So, Shouto, what were you saying again?” Izuku interjects cheerfully.
“Oh, right,” Shouto says, twisting Catarina’s tail. “My brother’s the villain Dabi.”
(Shouto has a dilemma.)

Aizawa fixes the villain Dabi with a deadpan glare.
“So you’re telling me that you are Todoroki Touya. And you are here,” Aizawa heaves a heavy sigh. “To visit Todoroki Shouto. For family day.”
Dabi nods. The man is wearing a normal civilian outfit and a surprisingly convincing red wig. Honestly, Aizawa might've even fallen for the disguise…if it weren’t for the distinctive scars and surgical staples.
Seriously. They’re a dead giveaway.
“Sorry, I can’t let you in,” Aizawa says. He can’t believe he has to say this. “Since you are clearly the villain Dabi. That would be a violation of security and safety regulations.”
Kisame dies, only to wake up ten years in the past.
// Suicide is Kisame's canon death, which is immediately undone a la time travel. The child abuse tag refers to the village's canonical treatment of Naruto.
