    Summary

    “I have evaluated the results,” Five begins. He remembers thinking that everyone taking a stab at leading a mission was a good thing. It was supposed to be fail-proof: a way to ease the uncertainty and mistrust in the team/family. If everyone has a fair shot, there would be a lot more trust when somebody ends up with the job. And if that person is not Luther, it’s even better that they find that gem now while they’re young again. More chances of preventing the Apocalypse that way. “We all seem to have failed.”

    Summary

    When the Hargreeves traveled back to the past, they promised Vanya they’re going to help to help her control her powers, that they won't let Reginald hurt her or lock her away again. Things got better between all of them, and each number grew closer to one another. Klaus only wished that someone promised him that, too, when he had to return to the crypt, when he was haunted by those his siblings killed, when he was dismissed as a junkie and a disappointment. Oh, well. It seems that history will always repeat itself.

    Summary

    Number Four was a failure, he said. Number Four didn't have powers, no, he had schizophrenia. He took pills that came from his father's hands and told himself it was all a hallucination.

    In the end, they should have known better. Klaus Hargreeves can speak to the dead, can conjure and control every dead soul, and he ends the world.

    Or,

    Klaus' powers get out of hand at a young age. Reginald, the A+ parent, claims him as schizophrenic from there on. Eventually, he breaks.

    Summary

    With half the unit's eyes trained on him, Klaus starts to talk, all frenzied hands and Cheshire grins and twisted mischief. But it’s not one of his typical, wild tales of parties gone awry and curiosities found in dumpsters. It’s an epic. 43 women miraculously gave birth. A fabulously rich man adopted- the word Klaus uses is “bought”- seven of them, numbered them, and raised them to save the world using their mysterious superpowers.

    “Number Four. My legal name. Number Four Hargreeves.”

    “Ain’t on your dog tag.”

    “Well, I’m getting to that.”

    Dave hangs back when he tells his stories. Klaus is dangerous for him. He figures there's no harm in listening in, but then again: the others don't watch Klaus like he does.

    or

    (Dave falls in love, much too quickly. Klaus tries to find him, much too late. Death isn't what they think it is.)

    Summary

    Endeavor thought that Shoto was the perfect protegee, an ideal mix of flame and ice. He was wrong, but this was no surprise— Endeavor was wrong about many things.

    Perhaps, if Rei had a quirk, he would have been right. Perhaps, if Rei had been human, Shoto would have been the balance of heat and cold Endeavor so craved, the hero to challenge All Might.

    But Rei was not human, and Shoto— Shoto had a frozen flower where his heart belonged, buried in a fiery chest.
