    Summary

    Nobody ever thought quirkless, weak, weird Midoriya Izuku was dangerous.
    This perception carried over to his first year high school class, because really despite the super strength Midoriya didn't have it in him to be dangerous.

    That was their first mistake. And the one that would see them fall.

    Summary

    You hold one clock, I hold the other. We start and stop them at the same time, but you use your ability for some amount of time in between. Then we check how far apart they are, reset, and do it again. It probably won’t be much, but you’ll have a number to start improving on at least. You like that sort of thing, right?

     

    And remind me why your obnoxious ass has to be there?

    Summary

    In chess, you had to lay traps, move your pieces carefully, and sometimes, you had to sacrifice a piece to ensure you’d eventually win the game. Gellert was not one of the players in this game of chess, he recognized. He wasn’t even the king. But he could make a sacrifice to give Albus an advantage, who’d turned him into a piece on the board without Gellert noticing. He could do this to help Albus’ cause.

    A poem for Fernando Pessoa based on some lyrics from the song "The Chess Game" from the musical Falsettos.
