    Summary

    This is not a #bakudeku story, but if Izuku hadn't wanted Todoroki to give him shit about it, he probably should have thrown away that doujinshi Jirou had bought him.

    "I can make myself scarce tonight," Todoroki offers, when they meet up for dinner after Izuku gets the all-clear from the agency, the police, and the local medics. "You know, if you want to have Bakugou over."

    Izuku glowers at him. "You're a bad person."

    "Please don't have sex with him on our couch," Todoroki presses onward, shameless and unflappable. "We stole that from my dad's house together and I still have a lot of tender memories associated with it so that would hurt my feelings."

    Summary

    [There’s a child underneath Fire Lord Zuko’s desk.

    He doesn’t realize this until he sits down and tiny hands wrap themselves around his ankles, and Fire Lord Zuko definitely does not shriek and backpedal away at the unexpected touch.

    He definitely does do that but Gou, the single guard he’s agreed to let shadow him, is kind enough not to mention it.]

    Or,

    In which Fire Lord Zuko is a total mess and somehow people manage to love him for it anyway.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It does not occur to Fire Lord Zuko, not even a little bit that he can, in fact, foist the infant off onto somebody else. Literally anybody else. He’s the Fire Lord, he could hand the child over to Gou and the man would be legally obligated to change his job title to babysitter.

     

    Zuko does not do this.

    Summary

    It doesn’t take long for the rumors to start.

    The Fire Nation prides itself on its civilization. It isn’t like the other, lesser, nations who throw their children away by sending them into war. Those uncultured and unfeeling savages who are destroying their own future faster than the Fire Nation can save them from themselves.

    Every Fire Nation child goes to school. They learn reading and writing, the illustrious history of their country, and what will be expected of them as proper, upstanding Fire Nation citizens. They are to be protected, because children are the future glory of the nation.

    The crown prince is thirteen when his father burns his face in front of an audience of hundreds.

    “Did you hear?”

    “Hear what?”

    “About the prince.”

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian’s hand jolts, spilling a drop of wine onto the tabletop. “Love?” he croaks, then clears his throat and tries again. “Lan Zh— uh, Hanguang-jun, in love?”

    “Have you not heard the story?” the other young woman asks, looking pitying. “You must, it is a truly heartrending tale of star-crossed romance and mutual pining — go to any storyhouse in town, everyone has been requesting a reading of this book.”

    “There’s a book?” Wei Wuxian says blankly.

    In which the junior disciples (namely, Lan Jingyi, Ouyang Zizhen, and a reluctant Lan Sizhui) turn to RPF in an attempt to rehabilitate Wei Wuxian's reputation so that he and Hanguang-jun can get together and get married and live happily ever after. It's... surprisingly effective.

    Stunning. The premise might seem a little crack-ish, but the world is so beautiful and rich and felt so natural. This is the ending I want for these characters.

    Summary

    As the world ends, Five takes his siblings back into their child bodies on the day he originally left. With the knowledge of how the world ends fresh in their minds, the Hargreeves siblings do what they can to leave clues for their past selves on how to grow up a little less fucked up before returning to the present.

    A present where they all have different lives they can't remember, there's a fun new apocalypse on the way, and Reginald Hargreeves remembers the day where all his children suddenly and inexplicably lost their minds and all respect for him at once a little too well.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Dear Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Ben and last but very much not least, Vanya,

    Now that you’ve found all my clues, I have to admit that I lied to all of you. I haven’t been stuck in the past, I’ve been in the future. Far enough in the future that it’s been a very, very long time since I’ve seen any of you. I’ve tried a thousand times at least to get back, but time travel is anything but an exact science, and going back turns out to be a lot harder than going forward.

    (...)

    I’m not going to be back for a long, long time. Believe me when I say it’s very much not by choice. I would do anything to be back with you all, but since I can’t, please promise me you’ll all do it for me. That you’ll take care of each other, and choose each other over Dad, over the “Umbrella Academy.” That you’ll be there for each other, as a family, no matter how frustrating or hard it gets. When I get back, when all of this is over, I’m going to try my hardest to join in too, even if it’s hard to remember what it’s like to not be alone.

    I love and miss all of you so, so much,

    5
