The sun is in full force today as Class 1A goes about their hero training in Ground Beta. It makes every last one of them sweaty and irritable, and nobody makes worse decisions than sweaty and irritable teenagers on a literal battleground.
One of them, in fact, makes the worst decision of his very short life.
(Or: Midoriya decides it's time to take a more direct approach to the Mineta problem.)

There are some people who believe the dead will haunt those they left behind in the form of new faces. That eventually, no matter how far behind you think that graveyard is, a ghost will show up in the eyes of someone else, in the way they smile, in the way they move. The dead may be turned to ash but their essence, their hearts, are not.
None of the students Shouta expels have the same eyes as Oboro, but he sees the tombstones in their future all the same, and he won’t be the one to help them get there.
(Or: Shouta's haunted by the past in the form of a certain problem child.)

“I didn’t mean to lie,” Izuku says, gaze pointedly stuck to the speckled linoleum floor of the medical bay. He keeps trying to count the red dots, but he loses track every time.
Iida closes his eyes, exhaling through his nose. “But you did. I asked you if you were hurt, and you said—”
“I swear, I didn’t know.” Izuku turns too quickly, sending a wave of pain through his cracked ribs. But that’s not important—what’s important is the look in his friend’s eyes. The mixture of disappointment and anger, molten metal, hidden in depths of dark blue. The way Uraraka holds the same look but softer. “...at first.”
(Or: Midoriya's friends try to get through to him about his self-sacrificial habits.)

She doesn’t kiss him right away like he expects her to. Instead, Avantika slides her hand under Fjord’s shirt, laying her long fingers flat against the planes of his stomach. There’s scar tissue there, a stretch of boiled skin from the explosion that set him down this path in the first place. Either she doesn’t notice or she doesn’t care, as she presses closer and whispers in his ear, “Do you want me?”
“Yes.” It’s like everything else that drips off of his silver tongue—a half-truth.
(Or: Fjord learns that old self-destructive habits die hard.)

“It’s not that bad,” Izuku says. “You get used to it after awhile.”
The room goes so quiet he can hear Kaminari and Sero playing video games two doors down, and very quickly he realizes his mistake.
“Deku-kun,” Uraraka starts slowly, like maybe she didn’t hear him right. “Did someone...did someone tell you to kill yourself?”
(Or: Izuku's friends find out something about his past and know better than to leave it alone.)
