    Summary

    Todoroki Shouto was immensely grateful for his lack of facial expressions.

    He’d always been a person of few emotional tells, mostly because of his upbringing. Emotions weren’t something encouraged in the Todoroki household, so Shouto had to quickly learn how to keep things to himself. He learned to lie, learned to suppress his pain, and learned how to internalize his problems. He was not allowed to be weak, so he hid his thoughts behind a stoic face and short responses. The only times when he allowed himself to work out the bottled emotions was when he was alone, usually in the dead of night in a locked room. It was the only way in which he could keep everyone at a comfortable distance, ignorant to his weaknesses.

    Which is why when he began to lose his grasp on his emotions, none of it showed on his face.

    Summary

    "I'm Touya Todoroki. And I'm here for my brother.
    You want to tell him about our dear old dad Shouto?!"
    --
    Sometimes, when things fall apart, it's insidious.
    Sometimes, it's exponential. Sometimes, once it starts, it seems like the hits never stop. That no matter how many pieces of tape are put over the leak, it keeps growing.
    After months of quiet following All-might's retirement, the league interrupts the 2A festival and normalcy falls to the past.
    The three words Izuku had planned to say at the festival never come.
    A different three words shake the arena, shattering Shouto's world, sending everything he held behind thick walls to spill out into the open.
    Dominos fall in rows, drowning young heroes in their consequences. Black and white fade to murky grey.
    Fledgling heroes are forced to take flight, supporting the weight of a crumbling profession on their developing spines.
    Shouto finds the journey back to "normal" is a lot longer than its fall. Finds that destruction tells you what bonds will weather blood, sweat and tears. Which ones are coal waiting to press into diamonds.
    And that just maybe... in the end... deviating from his normal has its merits.

    Summary

    Lance was just hanging out in Santa Monica, generally trying to chill for a few years of his very very long life, only to be called back suddenly by his Coven leader and his daughter, Alfor and Allura Altea. Right from the time he gets there, things are looking to get interesting, from the proper use of vervain in rooting out vampires and wolfsbane for werewolves to the two hot police officers that have a thing for each other. However, things take a turn for the worse when Lance runs into Shiro, the resident peaceful small town police officer, being hunted down by a man that looks like he was hit in the face by a nasty cactus, while in wolf form. That is not the interesting turn he wanted this to take.

    Summary

    “We know it sounds crazy. It is crazy, but you’re my only chance of finding my brother, Shiro,” she says, voice soft and warm. “Please help me.”

    I take a deep breath, having to steel myself to get the words out of my mouth. They feel like slugs crawling up my throat as I struggle to spit them out.

    “Matt is dead, Katie,” I tell her, voice steady and deep and a little too loud even though I feel like screaming. I can see something small break behind her pupils at the use of the name, and her hold on my hand slackens slightly. “No amount of...whatever this is, is going to change that.”
