    Summary

    Lying wasn’t a very heroic habit, but it seemed all Hawks was capable of doing after being assigned this mission.

    Of course, it was built out of lies, so that made sense. He was supposed to lie to the villains to get on their good side, to gather information that would help restore hope in the heroes after so much had been going wrong. It was supposed to be a mission that would bring the heroes (and him) praise.

    It’s hard to believe they have no idea what they’ve thrown him into.

    [Or: Once upon a time, Hawks knew and loved a boy named Todoroki Touya. He vanished, and a few years later, Hawks met the villain Dabi.]

    Summary

    "In times like these, it’s almost easier to convince himself that this is something he deserves. That’s been one of the most difficult parts about siding with the League so far: being able to take something, even just an hour or two under a raining sky, hiding in a train station because he wants to, and take it without looking over his shoulder for repercussions. After years of having it repeatedly drilled into his skull that his role is to give, to give, to give, the action of taking seems like nothing short of a guilty pleasure. He’d never stopped giving for the Commission. They’d taken his time, his morals, his thoughts, his identity, his life, and had snatched them from his young and tiny hands before he’d even had the sense to hold on tighter. His trainers had called it saving, but Hawks knew better. They’d been taking from him all along- and now, he was taking things back for himself too, little by little."

    Summary

    Basically, Dabi and Hawks weren't at that particular point in their…thing…where he gave a damn about the hero beyond the thinnest surface level.

    So, he shouldn't have cared when he slipped through the window of Hawks' apartment and found the bird curled into his wings on the floor, surrounded by a literal nest of blankets.

    And yet…

    Summary

    1 new message from: Hawks

    The metallic tang of blood filled his mouth as he chewed on his bottom lip, staring at the message.

    Five letters. All it took was five letters for him to picture himself tucked away from the world, shielded by a wall of crimson as he stained the hero’s clothes with tears the same colour. Five letters to imagine stubble scratching his forehead as he hid his face in the slope of the hero’s neck, pretty words falling from even prettier lips to reassure him that he was okay.

    or: Dabi suffers from panic attacks, this time he doesn’t want to do it alone
