    Summary

    After spending years bouncing from family to family and school to school, Takashi's learned that the best way to survive as an omega is to keep his head down and leave no traces. When he moves in with the Fujiwara couple, Takashi plans to do much the same, but they seem bound, set, and determined to upset all semblance of stability and familiarity in his life. And so does everyone else in Hitoyoshi.

    It's going to be a long year.

    Summary

    All for One is a quirk that has maintained a host for the last two hundred years. His host, the First, has grown tired of his quirk's manipulation, violence, and persistence in making sure they both live for as long as possible, so he kills himself to rid the world of this God-forsaken quirk.

    However, All for One is not ready to die and grabs onto the first quirkless host he can find. Thankfully, a young boy is passing under the bridge where the First killed himself, and the quirk latches on as quickly as possible.

    Summary

    Geralt's muscles heave backwards, flinging him down against the bed. He tries to struggle upwards but it feels like he’s been buried beneath a mountain. Every inch of him is pressed completely still. His eyes close, and he’s left in the dark with nothing but his racing heart for company. He’s not tired, he’s never been less tired. But the curse wants him to sleep, it seems. It’ll force him to lie here until he does. How much of his life will it start to control, now that he’s declared war against it? Now that he knows it’s lurking in his bones, now that it doesn’t have to be subtle?

    He swallows. Takes a long, deep breath, gathering every bit of courage he has to stop himself from slipping back into panic. He still has control over his lungs. He still has that.

    For now.

    (Or: Witchers don't retire. They stay on the Path until it kills them. They hunt monsters and they want nothing from life. This isn't exactly by choice.)
