    Summary

    "Bucky, it’s been seventy years. It’s...” Steve sat up and squinted at the analog clock on the nightstand. “It’s three in the fucking morning.”
    “And?” Bucky pulled on a black shirt, the gleam of his arm vanishing under the fabric. “Books don’t get less overdue.”

    Bucky bolted upright in bed gasping, and Steve rolled over instantly awake. “Buck?” His hands flexed in the sheets, but he didn’t reach out.

    The room was lit by the orange glow of streetlights, the comforting brightness of New York the same as it had been since before the war. In dim light, the shadows under Bucky’s eyes and the lines on his face were difficult to see, but there was no mistaking this man for the one he had known in 1941. His posture was rigid, his chest heaving. Steve could see the whites of his eyes, shining in the dark. He kept his voice gentle. “Nightmare?”

    Blinking at him, Bucky opened his mouth. Sometimes on nights like this he babbled in Russian or French, or recited strings of numbers and inscrutable code. Instead he said, “I never returned The Sword in the Stone.”

    Summary

    Eudora Kalhil only wanted to resume a harmless childhood hobby. Instead, he gets a highly privileged view of the dark underbelly of the Alternian Empire... and this being the Alternian Empire, it's dark and slimy indeed.

    It kinda harshes his chill. He elects to do something about it. The chain of events cascading from this decision sparks the beginning of the end for the Empire as it was always known.

    Summary

    “Aizawa, are you sure I’m the best person for this job? There are a lot more qualified people on campus. People who have been teachers for years, and—”

    As All Might spoke, Midoriya Izuku crawled the length of the couch, ducked under All Might’s arm, and made himself comfortable on his lap. All Might’s hands rose into the air, as though unsure of what to with his arms now that he had a toddler curled against his stomach like a cat seeking the warmth of its owner.

    “Um,” All Might said.

    All Might laughed and pulled Izuku close to his chest, before he could tumble right out of his arms. “Sorry, young Todoroki. Midoriya wanted to be involved in the teaching process since he isn't able to participate as a student, so I gave him stickers to hand out to the best students. Show everyone the stickers, my boy.”

    Izuku proudly held up a hero-themed sticker sheet. The class made appreciating noises, and complimented his stickers, and Izuku lit up at the praise.

    “But we haven’t started the exercise yet,” Todoroki said. “We haven’t even changed into our costumes.”

    Izuku leant over again and poked the sticker glued to Todoroki’s cheek. “Good boy.”

    “But we—” Todoroki tried again.

    Izuku patted the sticker twice more, and said, more firmly, “Good boy!”

    “Accept that you’re a good boy, Todoroki,” Sero said.

    “Say it,” Ashido demanded. “Tell Midoriya that you understand that you’re a good boy.”

    There wasn’t much Todoroki could do under the intense stare of twenty would-be heroes, desperate to please the toddler cuddled up to All Might. There wasn’t much he could do under Izuku’s gaze, anyway. Like this, his freckles even more pronounced, features rounded out with baby fat, tiny fingers clutching at All Might’s shirt, Izuku was too powerful.

    Todoroki sighed, and said, “I’m a good boy.”

    Super hearing can give you access to information that others aren't privy to.

    That's not always a good thing.

    Summary

    The first friend that Newt Scamander makes at Hogwarts — well, his first wand-bearing friend, as opposed to one with fur or too many legs, which is only a distinction that needs to be made to people that don’t know better — he doesn’t meet until the Easter term of his second year, when Leta Lestrange comes back from a six-week absence with a different haircut and an ebony prosthetic where her right arm had been.
