    Summary

    There are two things he does remember about that moment, and he holds onto them with pride even as his back and stomach start developing a patchwork quilt of blue and purple bruises. He knows that for all the hits he took, he managed to land a couple swings early on, lashing out with fists and feet and paying no attention to form and earning a few solid connections for his efforts.

    And he knows that the dog got away — pulled their attention away from it to himself long enough that it could slink off through the grass and bolt for the safety of the surrounding woods.

    --

    Or, a collection of moments from Magnus' past feat. dogs

    Summary

    Hours later, when the sun has completely gone down and Shouto steps out of the shower for the third time, his hair is the pitchest, mattest black he’s ever seen. He marvels at it in the foggy mirror, tilting his head this way and that, not even bothered by the blotchy stains of dye left around his hairline where he’d been a little sloppy. It's not bad for an amateur self-dye job.

    Slowly, Shouto brings a hand up, and covers the left side of his face.

    The person who stares back at him is just a plain teenage boy, with a plain face, and nothing remarkable about him.

    Shouto dares to smile.

    Shouto Todoroki runs away from everything he's ever known. He ends up finding a friend, and himself.

    Summary

    It becomes something of a tradition, their fireside chats.

    Most nights, Prompto will wander over to lean against the counter while Ignis prepares the evening meal. Most nights, they trade stories, and Prompto fishes out the cutlery and the plates for him when it's time to serve.

    There's been several weeks of this when Prompto says, "You know, I could help."

    If it were anyone else, his tone would have been teasing, and the thoughtful lift of his brow would have been playful, and the tilt to his mouth would have leaned closer to a warm smile.

    As it is, only bits and pieces make it through Kageyama’s careful repression, shining like irrepressible dawn through tiny cracks in a window shade, and Teruki blinks rapidly, something like sunspots dancing across his eyes.

    Summary

    "Oh, hey," Nishinoya says, swinging his legs over the edge of the coffin. There's a sort of sharp snap connecting the smooth of his movements, like he'd give you static shocks if you touched him mid-motion. All in all, he looks remarkably alive, considering he'd been dead and in a coffin literally seconds earlier. "So where's this?"

    "A funeral home," Ennoshita says, feeling it would be a little rude not to answer, even if he is on a rather tight schedule. He checks the running stopwatch, looks up again with fifty-four seconds remaining. "Because you're dead. So about your murder - "

    Nishinoya blinks. "Seriously? That sucks. Are you dead, too?"

    (In which Ennoshita bakes pies, wakes the dead, and solves: a murder, of all things.)

    Summary

    If Levi wasn’t mistaken, and he wasn’t, the green cloak made him a researcher like himself. Two thousand years ago, he had been looking outside the walls the way Levi was now looking in.

    “What’s your story?” Levi asked the boy in the crystal. As expected, there was no response. He just hung there, eyes closed, heart beating but only just. Levi’s words reverberated around the cavern, resonated as a hum, and then fell silent.
