    Summary

    They choose Yuuri in the early spring, just as the plum trees are beginning to bloom, just after another hard winter and three unbroken years of hunger. His sister’s jaw clenches, his father’s smile freezes, his mother’s calloused hands go limp. They do not protest.

    They say they chose him for his stature, for his bright eyes, for his quietness and kindness: more practically, for the fact that he has no family to support. They say they consulted the signs and portents, counted the days, checked the hour of his birth, and knew it must be him.

    The whispers go like this: they chose him for his standoffishness, his strangeness, because the Katsuki family have never been fishermen and do not understand the pain of losing a son to the sea.

    Summary

    “Virgin sacrifice?” Viktor repeats dumbly, certain he’s misheard, or that the corner-store clerk’s English isn’t quite as good as he’d thought. “Yuuri?”

    “Oh yes. Katsuki Yuuri, his family runs Yutopia. The onsen,” she says in flawless English, as if she (and everyone else in town) doesn’t know perfectly well how much time Viktor spends hanging around said onsen. “Everyone’s quite looking forward to the festival. You’ll still be around, won’t you?”

    “Uh,” Viktor says, still lost. Murder is illegal in Japan, right?

    --

    In which Yuuri is going to be sacrificed, and Viktor is going to save him.

    Summary

    Izuku sighs. "I think Kacchan's picking fights because he wants Todoroki to notice him. Maybe the two of them just need a little push in the right direction.”

    “Off a cliff, maybe,” says Ochako.

    "Let’s be serious,” Iida says. “We all know Bakugou’s crush isn’t on Todoroki.

    (What's Deku doing? His best, probably.)
