    Summary

    Five times that Shouta notices something strange about Hizashi, and one time Hizashi realizes that Shouta's way more terrifying than he could ever imagine ft. Hitoshi snarking, Eri's adorableness, Hizashi trying and failing to court Shouta over totally not stolen food, and the occasional dead body or two.

    Shouta knew taking on this job was a bad idea. It’s not like they had any other options; they needed to get out of the Deqr port and fast, and this job gave him free passage as long as he managed navigation. They didn’t even blink an eye at his two passengers, just told him to keep them busy and out of the way. It was no problem; Hitoshi and Eri know far too well for their age how to stay out of sight. 

    But now all the adults aboard the S.S. S. Watchers stare at the dead body on the floor of reactor with various degrees of horror. 

    How did they know it was dead, you ask? Well, the way Shouta can see its spine is a solid indication that it’s definitely dead despite the alien biology. 

    Damn. He liked Ishiyama too.

    For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
    For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
    For want of a horse the rider was lost.
    For want of a rider the message was lost.
    For want of a message the battle was lost.
    For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
    And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

    Summary

    “Midoriya, stay behind. We need to talk.” Oh no. That sentence never ended well for Izuku.

    Or

    Izuku makes it into UA without a quirk. He’s had enough of being ‘realistic’.

    Summary

    Let’s talk about a Susan who never moved on, who buried her family in English soil and spent the rest of her life trying to find her way home. She did not believe lions were kind, but she always remembered a bow in her schoolgirl hands.

    She looked in every old wardrobe she came across. It was casual, everyday– the first day in a new lecture hall, she checked the back of the coat closet. Friends had her over for Christmas dinner and she excused herself to go the bathroom, checked every cabinet and closet, and then headed back in for pudding. She went home with a cute boy she met in a smoky little pub and she checked his wardrobe before she headed home the next morning, heels in hand.

    She also went to college, got a political science degree she had to fight for. She got a byline in the local paper, a few ladies’ magazines, then a larger regional publication.

    She had mimosa brunches with friends. She read detective novels, never touched fantasy, and finally one day she stepped through an old stone archway barely thinking about it and–-

    She was standing in a treeless plain, all yellow grass and blue blue skies.

    Summary

    You may have heard it said that Aslan will never tell you any story but your own. Many are the stories told about Queen Susan: courtiers’ tales, Narnian legends, Calormene whispers, schoolyard taunts, British murmurs, odes and laments. Susan has her own stories — and they didn’t all end with a train wreck. (Which ones are true, you ask? That is up to you.)
