    Summary

    December has come and the city is sick.

    As U.A.'s second term draws to a close, Musutafu City is plagued by strange happenings at night. Young heroes are found brutally beaten, with no memory of their assailant. Buildings and storefronts burst apart and collapse. Entire city blocks go mad, their inhabitants attacking everything in sight before calming down just as quickly. The perpetrators are unknown. The League of Villains is silent. The city begs for answers.

    The faculty struggle to maintain normalcy, but when Class 1-A is caught in one of the incidents, Katsuki Bakugo decides to take matters into his own hands. In doing so, he sets off a chain of events that will lead the school to question everything it has stood for. One of the darkest secrets of the Hero Society has been unearthed, and what's crawled out intends to shatter the nation's fragile peace for good.

    Spoilers up to Chapter 185.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    [a tour de force ft. superb narrative tension, ensemble action, & critical exploration of BnHA society.]

    “After everything we’ve found out, do you seriously believe being number one’s just about punching out some losers in crappy costumes and smiling for the camera? ‘cause if you do, then you don’t know a goddamn thing about All Might.”

    His palm started to spark. Dark Shadow cringed at the light. But Bakugo himself remained still, jaw set, spitting every word.

    “It’s about always winning. The world’s a shitty place. And you ain’t gotta be a villain to make it even shittier.” Something like guilt flashed over his features and was gone. “Being number one’s about making all those idiots out there think different. Deku’s trying to get that part down, but he can’t do anything for anyone if he’s always in pieces. All Might wasn’t like that. All Might kept on his feet ‘til the end. Victory after victory after victory.” He closed his fist and snuffed out the light. “It ain’t just bastards like that wrinkly shitstain from the League you have to watch out for. The whole world’s trying to knock you over, all the time. Being number one means fighting all of that, always, never losing. And then maybe you can convince a few other idiots they can fight it too. That’s one thing Icy Hot’s dumbass dad can’t pull off. He better hope he’s retired when I go pro. Doesn’t matter what b-lister school I graduate from, if he’s still between me and the top spot I’m gonna tear right through him.”

    “That’s...surprisingly eloquent of you,” Tokoyami said faintly.

    [这就是我心里真正的吴雪峰,给人一种三维感... /for personal ref, 关于无非玩家的长评]

    气冲云水。吴雪峰无声地凝视着它,既像是回望自己的过去,又像是端详一位相伴许久的老友。他二十五岁,荣耀开服那年他才十九。那个大二的夏天,捣鼓计算机图形学的第四天晚上,他跟室友一起买了登录器和账号卡。因为提早做了功课,于是决定给它取名叫气冲云水,然后一玩就是七年。灰色视角里的赛场上刀光剑影,一叶之秋的身影从混乱中一闪而过。多年前,就是在与这类似的情景里,他路见不平拔刀相助,给成为众矢之的的战斗法师刷了一个念气罩——然后,一切开始了。它曾是他的调剂,是慰藉,是爱好,后来则是梦想与导火索,是正在寻找的自我。而现在它成了他的骄傲。他闭眼一笑:角色一死,都走马灯上了。

    Bookmarker's Notes

    [everything about this is ♥___♥ and ;_____; all at once. the weasleys! i cry]

    Though the Weasels had a general policy of resistance when it came to things like this, today was different. Today things would be bad enough, Bill had said, without the rest of us making it worse on Ron, understand? So we all do as we’re told and the resistance is up to him today. And the Weasels tended to vaguely and eventually fall in line when the eldest of them was very firm on something in this manner, because usually he was quite easygoing with them and would not press them and would in fact encourage them if they wanted to stand up for themselves because everything that was terrible had happened already and the worst they could do was kill you, which they probably would not do because they would rather see you live and suffer, understand?

    There was an art to acquiescence, and she wielded it like a weapon. In times like these, you had to walk alone, or walk with none.

    [Consort Jing, at her very finest in walking the knife's edge. OH MY HEART.]

    “I am your consort,” she said. “Of course I will accept whatever punishment Your Majesty deems appropriate.”

    “Hmph,” said the Emperor.

    A funny thing, power: the display of it drew attention to one’s vulnerability. A lowly concubine, collapsed in prostration — yet there was an art to acquiescence.

    Of the two of them, there was only one face hidden.
