    Summary

    After your life is saved by a quirkless middle-schooler, you find yourself roped back into the world of Heroism you've spent years trying to escape. Your mentor convinces you to take a job at U.A. that will bring you perilously close to your former best friend, Toshinori Yagi, who you have been avoiding since you mysteriously dropped out of high school in your third year.

    Being a Hero never gets any easier.

    And high school never ends.

    *****

    "Toshi, I don't think you understand your own gravity. How everything you say and do can have so much weight, even when you're nowhere to be seen." You know that crushing power all too well. You have been on the receiving end of the drop too many times to deny its existence. 

    He's blind to his influence. He's wearing All Might colored glasses and whines, "I wish I could be invisible whenever I'm not All Might. At least then, I wouldn't have to look at this every morning in the bathroom mirror."

    "I don't know, Toshi. You've got a face I'd happily wake up next to every day."

    Summary

    bib·li·o·ma·ni·a--/ˌbiblēəˈmānēə/--noun--passionate enthusiasm for collecting and possessing books.

    --

    She’s not sure what purity is. But she knows that he knows it. Knows it in the way he gets slack-jawed and slow when she puts an envelope in his hand, the way his hands tremble when he slits it open, when his prize slides into his lap.

    Sometimes he’ll bury his nose in it and smell the paper. There’s something animal in it, something about prey and catching in it. Sometimes he curses when he’s done, bite his lip and whisper, “Fuck.”

    It’s an invasion to watch. But who knows why girls are curious like this, sneak around like this—

    He always will remember himself, turn human again.

    “Sixteenth-century,” he’ll say by way of explanation, eyes still glassy

    --

    A mad book collector, his graduate assistant, and the end of the world.
