    Summary

    “Okay, heartbreaker,” he says, “how much to put the tires back on the car?”

    Jason rolls his eyes and gestures at him with the lug wrench. “Why don’t I just beat you up and steal your money? Is this the first time you’ve been to a bad part of town? Don’t show me your wallet, asshole. Come on.”

    The man heaves a heavy, aggrieved sigh and starts pulling out bills. “Five hundred?” He tries. “Six? We can go to an ATM.”

    “You are mugging yourself,” Jason says, oddly impressed. “Holy shit.”

    Dangerous missions across the continent are one thing but dangerous missions across the continent with zero experience, a cursed bracelet and accompanied only by a difficult, hot-headed protector is a whole other story.

    Summary

    When Izuku dies, it's with a lot less grace than he always imagined it'd be. But even when he gives up the ghost, there's still things that need to be said--and, luckily, he gets a second chance.

    Summary

    “Huh,” Tony says as he stares down at them.

    He bends down and picks the sunglasses up carefully. They’re in perfect condition, not a single scratch on them. Tony puts them on and pushes them up to rest in his hair even as he tries to ignore the chill that abruptly races down his spine.

    “Must have slid the other way instead of off the side,” he mutters to himself as he resolutely ignores the fact that he knows that’s not true.

    No need to make himself paranoid out here in the middle of the ocean.

    Where no one can hear him scream.

    Summary

    In a world where countries are torn asunder through quests for greed, power, and understanding the realm of industrial technology and ancient magic, only the strongest—and smartest—dare to survive.

    Every individual is born with a phrase marking their bodies, linking them to their soulmate through the threads of fate and time.

    Izuku Midoriya is born with only half of a soulphrase on his wrist, destined to never meet the other half. A cruel omen.

    Though this has not stopped Izuku from dedicating his young life to researching soul-born magic and science under his master, the legendary Toshinori Yagi. He is determined to manifest his Quirk, with or without a destined soulmate.

    However, his life takes an unexpected turn when he rescues a volatile criminal—a man of great, savage beauty and many secrets.

    And so, Izuku realizes rather quickly that in his dangerous new quest, only the most willful survive, and if his new companion is anything to show for it, nothing will prepare him for what’s to come.
