Inspired by 'Empathy' by clockwork_spider, set sometime after the ending of the main storyline. I highly recommend reading that first, not only because it'll explain this but also just in general! Also, this fic has spoilers for that one. So if you want to read it go do that and stop reading now!

'Reconciliation brought proximity, brought effort, brought nostalgia and regret and bitterness and, yes, old shades of resentment. They were both self-centered men, fully capable of hypocrisy, grudges, and double-standards. They had made odd exceptions for one another, and they knew it. Exceptions grated on Nie Mingjue’s sense of fairness and Jin Guangyao’s sense of weakness.

They were well-versed in disappointing each other.'

Natasha and the concept of Super Heroes
And it is Natasha who stands, who sets the endgame in motion.  Frail, human, faillable, bloodstained Natasha.  Redeemed because she was given a chance, redeemed because she chose redemption, the quintisential liar and killer, in the service of liars and killers. 

Everyone else comes for the tesseract.  Everyone else comes for the war.  Steve holding the file folder with the cube front and center, Tony pulling it from the holographic interface, Bruce picking up the phone with the image of it, Thor coming after Loki for it, Clint guarding it.  Every one of them, a slave of a sort, to the huge, world changing power of that object.

And Natasha comes because Coulson says, “Barton’s been compromised.”

Natasha goes to war, risks her life, risks everything, for the sake of a partner, a friend, a collegue, a former lover.  For a debt.

Because Natasha IS the human heart of that movie.  And that is what makes her a hero.

Fate, Fiction, and the Future
A connected introspective "character analysis" look on my favorite TGCF arc cast and some sort of implied fix it.

Part I. He Xuan and hate. He gets to redo some events - some stay the same, nothing changes, and then there's that. (birthday fic for chii!!)
Part II. Shi Wudu and fate (“我命由我不由天”). They believe him fated to be great - a god. But he knows the truth; beneath his skin and bones - he is human.
Part III. Shi Qingxuan

icarusian - Life in the Fast Lane
Nothing has ever been 'slow' for Bakugou Katsuki. He's always had his eyes looking straight ahead and never back, ready to take that next step without hesitation (even if he isn't ).

Midoriya should probably feel a little bad about realizing that their relationship is the slowest thing Kacchan's ever experienced in his life and laughing about it.

there is no justice in this world (and there never was)
"I would still lay down my life for you.
And do you think you deserve your freedom?
No, I don't think you do."

A survivor's guilt, and his rescuer's guilt. A victim's guilt, an innocent's guilt, and the perpetrator's as well.

strikinglight - my god, it's full of stars
In the stories Tooru was told as a child, the most illustrious of the dead were placed in the sky for all of humankind to see and remember. The water-bearer. The twins. The vain queen. He can't help wondering now how the gods would feel about being thwarted by urban sky glow.

"What are you looking for when you look at the sky like that?" Kuroo laughs when Tooru squints at him. Tooru's beginning to think he laughs at everything. "Want to spot a UFO?"
Five constellations Tooru can always find, no matter how unfamiliar the skies.

(Cannot Live) Under the Same Sky
"There are times when Luo Binghe seems to fall into contemplation after that one fateful adventure of his. There are times when his lovers would see him sitting quietly on a somber night, his hands gently stroking that braid that seemed to appear out of nowhere after that day.

There are nights where he falls into a quiet contemplation, his mind everywhere but nowhere at the same time. His mind on a person that no longer, or rather, had never truly existed. Many of the girls were baffled, but many didn’t dare ask, for they knew that they never truly held a place in his heart."

In which Bing ge learns of love too late.
