  1. Summary

    There was a kingdom on a hill, and a prince with hair of red,
    And a forest at its borders where the prince one dark night fled.    

    In the forest was a path, but off it he did stray,
    To a cabin, and a Wolf, and with him the Lamb did lay.

  2. Summary

    Before the World Speech was first uttered,
    Before the ancestors crossed the great seas,
    Before the memory of mankind itself can remember,
    The land has been at war with the sun.

    There is no one who knows the truth behind their fight, save the gods themselves.

  3. Summary

    As the son of a huge rockstar, Shouto has grown up determined to escape being signed to his dad's record label. When he's accepted to a fine arts university to study the violin, three things become clear: he's free, he's tragically awkward, and he's thirsty as hell. Now that he can do whatever—or whoever—he wants, he doesn't know where to start. But when Bakugou Katsuki catches his eye from behind a drum set at a concert, Shouto starts to learn that making bad decisions can feel pretty damn good.

  5. Summary

    Midoriya Izuku is a university sophomore, a fanboy, quirkless. On the list of things he is not: a hero.

    That's why he's more surprised than anyone when he rescues Todoroki Shouto, his favorite pro hero, from a deadly villain attack. His actions fling him into the media spotlight, grabbing the attention of the entire country, including Todoroki himself. But Todoroki actually wants to get to know him past the headlines.

    Izuku finds himself living a story straight out of a fairy tale, one where the mysterious, handsome prince is played by the real-life superhero he has always admired. But Izuku is convinced he's the ugly duckling, not the swan; could he ever be remarkable enough to get his happily ever after?

    Summary

    Todoroki really is the prettiest boy in class-- up close like this, Kaminari's constant prattling on attractiveness a strong influence in the back of his head, it's hard not to see. More than just the altogether aesthetically pleasing features-- even including the scar, which is its own strange sort of beauty mark-- there's kind of an unearthliness to his quiet, solemnity and restraint in the stillness of a teenage boy that's otherworldly, like one of the paintings that'd be on display. The one with the fox in front of the moon, an elegant silhouette clear against a dark shroud of fog and mist.

    "Is something wrong?" Todoroki asks, and Hanta flushes with the realization he'd been spending the last minute contemplating Todoroki's face.

    "Your eye is just-- it's really blue," Hanta sputters out, looking away as he combs his hand through his hair.


    Sero and Todoroki run into each other at a museum and realize they both really like traditional art, so it becomes something of a regular thing.

    Dates, to Todoroki.

    It takes Hanta a while longer to catch up on that part.
