    Summary

    Edward Elric is about eleven when he stands up, makes an extended effort to knock as many books off the old bastard’s shelves as he can, and says, “Fuck the military. Al, you interested in music at all?”

    Everybody's got their own ideas of retirement.

    The Elrics don't even do retirement, what with the world trying to blow itself up every other month, but this shit has got to take the fucking cake.

    Summary

    “Kindness doesn’t have to always have a price, Keigo,” the man tried to reassure the boy. “Sometimes, people are just good and nice for the sake of being good and nice. Or because it’s the right thing to do.”

    Like strings from a marionette being cut, Keigo’s tenseness seemed to snap out of his body. His slumped shoulders fell even further, and his chin dropped down to his chest.

    Then, he sniffled.

    Hizashi realized, with a start, that Keigo was crying.

    ...

    An AU where Hizashi and Shouta take in the brothers Izuku and Keigo Takami after the take-down of the HPSC.

    Summary

    Against all odds, Izuku loves heroes. It doesn’t matter that he’s spent his entire life with villains, the real kind, not just regular criminals but actual genuine villains. It doesn’t matter that no heroes have ever come to save him. It doesn’t matter that they probably wouldn’t save someone like him. Izuku still loves heroes.

    He’s not blind to the irony of his situation. He has wings that cannot carry him to freedom, teeth and claws that he cannot wield against those who hurt him, and speed in the air and on foot that takes him nowhere. All he can do is manage disobedience where he can. Injure, don’t kill. If he can injure people instead of killing them, it’s something. It’s the closest Izuku will ever get to being a hero.

    Until one day, on what should be a routine mission, everything changes.
