    Summary

    Shouto had imagined himself as the country’s top hero for decades. Endeavour had put those images in his head when he was a child, and they had stayed there, growing like a fungus, until Shouto had reached adulthood. Even now, he was only just beginning to realise he didn’t have to live his life according to almost thirty-year-old decisions made by his abuser. He could do more. Be more. Outside of the hero community.

     

    Izuku gets a job offer in America. Somehow, this brings Shouto and Izuku closer than ever before.

    Summary

    Scarred fingers trace the topography of Shouto’s hipbones, sinking between the hills and valleys of his muscles with a frightening amount of familiarity that never ceases to be surprising. He’s an exposed nerve, all pulsing rhythms and fingers fisted in bedsheets, skin drawn taut over a skeleton that doesn’t feel like his own.

    Yes, Shouto wants to sob, but his voice always seems to fail him at times like these. Whatever you want, take it, take me, I’m yours, I’m yours.

    I’ve always been yours.

    Summary

    “Wait,” Shouto said as he glanced back and forth between Momo and Jirou’s faces, one looking nervous and earnest while the latter looked as if she was trying not to burst out laughing. “You want me,” he started slowly, “to pretend to be dating your girlfriend,” he gestured towards Jirou, “so you,” he looked back at Momo, “can bring her along to the World Hero Conference without giving away that you’re dating each other.”

    Momo looked to a smirking Jirou and then back at him. “Yes. That pretty much sums it up.”

    Summary

    The puppy slept on Shouto’s lap during breakfast. Shouto’s unbrushed hair was tucked behind his ears. He was sleep-soft, eating his breakfast with one hand, idly running his fingers over the dog's downy fur with the other.

    Izuku wrenched his gaze away from his boyfriend. Inko was trying to discretely take a photo behind her bowl. He couldn’t blame her, really.

    Every day, he thought Shouto couldn’t be more beautiful. And every day, Shouto proved him wrong.

    Summary

    Aizawa glances from All Might to Midoriya quickly. It sounds impossible—he’s never heard of a quirk that can be handed down like a family heirloom—but at the same time, it makes perfect sense. Midoriya’s inability to use his quirk at the start of the year. The strange, familial relationship between All Might and Midoriya. The slow malnourishment of All Might’s body, like his power was being siphoned away.

    “You’re …” Aizawa begins.

    “I’m All Might’s successor.” Midoriya’s proud but shaky voice rings clearly down the empty corridor.

     

    Aizawa finds out about One for All.
