    Summary

    Bilbo liked Erebor, he really did. Even if everyone seemed convinced he was going to leave.

    In which soil causes international incidents, Thorin is over-dramatic, and dwarves are rubbish at keeping secrets. Oh, and they build a garden. Eventually.

    Summary

    "You saved my life," Todoroki says.

    Izuku freezes. Then he looks up. Todoroki Shouto is staring at him, his eyes calm but wide, dust and soot all over his face. His perfect, handsome face. He's more beautiful in person than Izuku could have imagined.

    "You just saved all of us," Todoroki says again. "What's your name?"

    "M-Midoriya," Izuku chokes out. "Midoriya Izuku."

    Todoroki nods. "Midoriya. Thank you."

    --

    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

    Will gestures towards the figure, “That is someone who roams the streets in the perfect camouflage. We only see glimpses into his world when he allows it. We only see what he displays, his creative design if you will.”

    “May I ask whom it is that inspires you so?”

    “The Chesapeake Ripper.”

    The admission settles in the air with a heavy breath. Everything stops.

    In which Artist!Will is inspired by the Chesapeake Ripper, and Hannibal is intrigued in turn.

    Summary

    "Want me to prove it?"

    "...What?"

    "Prove it. Prove to you that you're perfect. I can do it!"

    Right. Sure he could. Todd rolls his eyes, but honestly, it's sweet of him to try. He could humour him. Just for a bit. "Okay. Sure. Prove it."

    He half expects Dirk to go rummaging round for a piece of paper to start a bullet-pointed list. Or maybe just start pointing at bits of Todd's face and appreciatively babbling.

    But instead he takes Todd by the shoulders, turning him round to face the mirrored wall, and smiles as their eyes meet in it. "Then stay right there, and watch."

    In which Todd has a crisis of self-confidence, and Dirk is determined to dig him out of it by any means necessary.
