    Summary

    'Family' was a strange word, to Katsuki. It existed in his reality just a mid-step away from what childhood storybooks led him to believe, what his teachers growing up always described. He had a family, and he loved them, he supposed; but they rarely made him feel warm, or especially loved. He didn’t feel comforted by their inclusion, at least not in a way he could ever identify.

    It would come as a shock, then, that the feelings taught to him so mechanically by those storybooks would seem to make sense the longer that he studied at U.A. Slowly, slowly, Katsuki's mind left tiny rooms to let warmth, love, and inclusion in. And as time went on, 'family' would take on a new meaning, a new feeling, and new light would shine on Katsuki to make him realize that formal definitions mean nothing at all.

    The tangled immensity of Katsuki's cosmic shift from one form of himself to another—or, a lesson in vocabulary.

    Summary

    ' "Here," Hinata says, grabbing a napkin.

    "I can—I c-can—"

    "I got it," Hinata tells him kindly. He reaches forward to dab at the man's streaming eyes, and the man sadly and defeatedly stuffs another chicken nugget into his mouth.

    "Wh-why," he asks, cheeks filled with nugget, "are you b-being so n-nice to me?" He looks up at Hinata, then—that serious, yet oddly sweet face red and blotchy and a mess of tears.

    "Because you're sad," Hinata says.'

    --

    Hinata only met Kageyama on the night shift at his job flipping burgers, but somehow, he still feels like he needs to make him a little less sad.

    Summary

    Midoriya is honestly unsure what’s worse: the tragic fact that Todoroki Shouto can make anything look objectively incredible or the fact Kacchan has six versions of the exact same photograph saved onto his camera roll.

    Nobody saves a photo that many times by accident.

    Kacchan set the bar, Todoroki raised it. That is not a good thing.

    Summary

    What the overwhelming majority of people didn’t know about Katsuki Bakugou is that he also possessed a secondary quirk.

    In fact, the only person to ever be let on this secret was his mother, and even she only came to know about it because one time during an argument, Katsuki lost his head and spat at her how utterly irrelevant she was to the narrative, and therefore should just shut the fuck up.

    Maybe he was just going crazy.

    Or, an au where Bakugou's fourth wall jokes are no jokes because he's actually aware of himself as a fictional character.
