  2. Summary

    It's a mismatched family, and certainly not without a few blood stained snowbanks, but they'll make it through living on the streets of Detroit's artic winters on their way to Canada, together.

    I.E. The story of how two androids and a human child learns what it means to make a family, and that everyone, no matter what they did, is still deserving of love.

  4. Summary

    (How a boy living in the desert falls in love, and then kidnaps, a teenager with ocean eyes.)

    Lance's strong, he knows this. It's something his Mama told him through daily phone calls, in every unspoken conversation between them after frustrating talks about finances and fake promises that it would be okay.

    But he can only hold out so long when it's just him, Keith, and wilderness of Arizona's deserts around them.

    This is the story of Lance's captivity over twelve months, and how even the strongest of people can break. But don't worry - Keith will be there for him. Whether Lance wants him or not.

    Update: There's now a soundtrack at my tumblr, https://anawriteshorror.tumblr.com/post/186960729489/im-only-doing-this-because-i-love-you-how-a-boy

    Summary

    “You’re an Omega.” Dabi murmured softly.
    The room went dead silent. Hawks wasn’t focused enough to fully notice. He buried his nose a little further into the soft fabric. This would be perfect for his nest too. He wanted it. But why stop there? He would be better just taking the source. The instinct to drag Dabi to a safe place and build him into a nest was near irrepressible.

    Or: The world knows that Hawks is an Alpha. Hawks knows that the Commission wishes he were an Alpha. The League learns that in fact, Hawks is not an Alpha. When the hero is worn down by work and struggling through the pain brought on by a heat, they might just be the only people able to recognise what Hawks is and still be willing to help.

    Summary

    He just wants his parents to look at him, what's so good about Tenko anyway? He's got a quirk, sure... and - and Dad has passed on his quirk to him but Izuku was here first! They're his parents!

    Not that he's ever seen them smile that wide with him, not that he's seen his Dad look so happy when talking about quirks (usually his Dad just told him to focus on something else, because he was quirkless so they didn't - shouldn't- matter to him), not that he's ever seen everyone get along so well like they do now. Now that Tenko has taken his place.

    Izuku wants to be a good little brother, a good son, but it hurts.

    Summary

    Through some freak accident of the universe, Dabi has been invited to compete on The Bachelorette. Have they actually seen his face? Surprisingly yes, and they still want him. For this season they apparently need a ‘bad boy’ to both balance out the hero contestant (why in hell is Hawks involved?) and to trash talk the show in interviews to appeal to audiences who don’t like the scripting. Getting sent on a vacation away from his annoying bandmates to complain and eat as much free food as he wants? Sold.

    Summary

    "Ignore them," Dabi orders sharply. "Look at me." Hawks' attention is forced back. When he meets Dabi's eyes, Dabi radiates approval. "Good boy," he mutters, soft enough that their audience can't hear. Words just for Hawks. Hawks shudders with the closest thing he's felt to pleasure in weeks.

    Dabi's eyes light up. Hawks' heart sinks.

    The raid doesn't go well for Hawks.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "I'll get you out," Dabi promises. "You won't have to stay in this room anymore."

    Hawks laughs, but it comes out harsh and wrong. "So where, then? Where the fuck are you going to keep me? You have to keep me somewhere."

    "With me," Dabi insists hotly, then seems to deflate. "I'd keep you with me."

    Hawks squeezes his eyes shut. His fingers tighten around the hem of his threadbare shirt, a soft gray t-shirt that used to be Dabi's. Dabi's clothes, Dabi's food, Dabi's fucktoy; it's hard to imagine existing outside of Dabi anymore. (One swallow, a few short minutes, and Hawks wouldn't belong to anyone anymore. What the fuck is he waiting for?)

    A soft, familiar weight touches the top of his head and strokes down to cradle the back of his neck. He doesn't flinch. The smell of Dabi's skin slows his heart rate and quells his panic. Hawks' stomach tightens with sour fear and disgust at how far gone he is.

    Dabi's hand rests there, heavy and possessive, and Hawks' breathing evens out automatically. He tries not to lean into the touch; he fails. Dabi's thumb strokes the skin behind his ear, and Hawks doesn't manage to suppress a shiver. Tingling warmth spreads from Dabi's hand, down his neck and into his chest. The warmth fills him with a duality of belonging and self-loathing.

    In his traitorous, wretched heart, maybe Hawks wants this. Maybe he craves this facsimile of warmth and kindness and love. Because maybe, in all his life, this fucked up thing with Dabi is the closest he's ever come.
