    Summary

    Izuku isn’t naïve, for all that he still wants to be a hero. He’s done his research, he’s lived with his mother day in and day out, and a part of him knows. Even if he doesn’t think he could say it out loud, he knows.

    His mother isn’t going to live forever. Kaa-san loves him more than anything in the world, and he does her, and he never wants to hurt her. So he tucks her back into bed, cleans up the dishes, does his homework, and he waits.

    Because he’s living for her. For now, he has to live.

    He waits.
    _____

    Summary

    “Tenko Shimura,” All for One crows, so suddenly and with such a strong aura of success, it makes All Might pause. He breathes heavily across from the man in the suit. This fight was taking a lot out of him, but All for One wasn’t coming out of this unscathed either.
    “Did you think that she could hide away her family so easily?” All for One’s respirator hung limply on the side of his face. He was smiling.
    “I wonder All Might, did you give your Master’s family any thought at all?” All for One gestured to the fallen villain and the hero felt an enormous pit form in his throat and in his core. Surely it was a lie. Surely, if All Might could not find his master’s relatives, then All for One couldn’t?
    “Or were you happy living under the allusion you were her only family? The family she chose to keep?”

    Summary

    Toshinori,

    Occasionally in the course of my career, the absurdity of life falls haphazardly into the shape of perfect comedy. This is that moment. I am sending you this transcript off record. On your copy, I have marked the statements which I could sense were deliberate lies. The official version has no such markings. Please read immediately.

    Summary

    It’s winter break, and for the week off, Uraraka invites Midoriya to visit her hometown, a small Japanese village in the mountains. While Uraraka is just happy to be home, Midoriya can’t help but notice that something feels off about the town.

    For whatever reason, he just can’t shake the feeling that he’s being watched.

    Summary

    Humans used to be good at the old ways.

    They used to know how to bait the trap, to spin a web of words and lies that would ensnare even the most wily. Humans used to be able to twist deceptions around knots of iron and turn them into weapons of power.

    They forgot a long, long time ago.

    A boy unwittingly makes a deal with one of the fae, severing his ties to humanity. However, he finds that the fae world is far more strange and complex than he ever could have imagined.
