aloneintherain: journey to the past
Izuku is five years old the first time he's saved by heroes. He's an instant fan of the woman in pink with her cheerful smile and the man with his ice powers and fine-boned features, even if they both refuse to tell him their names.

For most of his life, Izuku has been the centre of villain attacks, but he has never been injured. Every time, he's saved by bright, unknown heroes—heroes who smile at Izuku, and ruffle his hair or ply him with hugs, and seem mesmerised by how small he is.

Heroes that the rest of the world doesn't believe exists.

(Time-travelling Class 1-A AU)

aloneintherain: a night at the theatre
The director could get on his knees, and talk about honouring Zuko all he liked, but it didn’t erase the fact that the Ember Island Players had trivialised—had actively mocked—his struggles. His friends’ struggles.

This man had Zuko murdered on-stage to the rapturous applause of the audience, and now he was trying to smile sweetly at Zuko, and welcome him onto his set, as if there weren’t exaggerated versions of his friend’s outfits tucked away backstage, as if he hadn’t orchestrated Aang’s death at the hands of his father—

Fire Lord Zuko meets the Ember Island Players.

Unfortunately, no matter how many years pass, if Iruka said this, he would be lying his ass off.

evillordzog: Seeing Tens
You’re a regular office worker born with the ability to “see” how dangerous a person is with a number scale of 1-10 above their heads. A toddler would be a 1, while a skilled soldier with a firearm may score a 7. Today, you notice the reserved new guy at the office measures a 10.

A little while ago, a co-worker’s reaction to something introduced you to a social media platform called tumblr. It was innocuous, a video of two kittens dressed as vikings to the tune of Immigrant Song. You pointed out that it can’t have been that funny because unlike the surrounding posts it had no indication that it had been shared by others. They answered that just occasionally a post could be shared so many times that the counter would break and the number just disappear.

You just snorted something about poor software engineering. After all your counters are omnipresent. Even Diana didn’t break it, it was more like she was… well, she’s Diana. The few times she’s been back, it’s become clear that going all the way to 11 when you least expect it is sort of her thing.

You remember the kittens. You remember that first moment with Diana, that sudden thrill of fear when she showed you a world you had conditioned yourself to believe wasn’t possible. Because this totally unassuming blonde woman standing in front of you with the broad smile and the hand extended in greeting…

There’s no number above her head.

“Hello, I’m the Doctor.”

Mother doesn’t trust us anymore. She won’t let us leave the house. You just stay there where I can keep an eye on you, she says. No, you can’t go play in the yard. Don’t you move.

We’d noticed her starting to change a while ago. It worried us. When had she become different?

Bicky said she hadn’t. He said Mother had always been spiny-skinned, and the rest of us had just grown old enough to notice, was all. Besides which, she was teeter-wobble in the head. Anybody with so many kids had to be, Bicky said. It was just a fact.

Megan Chaudhuri: Good Breeding
The tense conversation stopped when Lydia slipped into the office, trailing the stench of old blood, ocean brine, and the cheap cigars favored by London’s Watch. The sudden heat and light from the crackling fire struck her like a blow. For one dizzying moment, the room’s familiar bookshelves and battle maps blurred with the seated figures of Mrs. Lincoln and a well-dressed stranger. The void left by their choked-off conversation filled with the drip-drip of water from Lydia’s overcoat onto the Hindustani carpet.

Lydia swayed. Her sisters would faint if they knew that she came to a job like this–that she needed a job–

Bugger it, she thought. Taking a deep breath, she curtseyed smartly. Mrs. Lincoln smiled but the stranger frowned and clutched closer a leather case.

Aliya Whiteley: Brushwork
My real name is gone, so far in the distance that the thought of it coming up fast behind me seems an impossibility. Age, however, has displayed no such qualms; it has pounced, shaking me between its teeth, until my skin sags and my gums flap.

But I have decided to not dwell on the things that have happened and the marks they have left. It is enough to have my place in the biodomes. I am now a product of my situation; that is, the forcing of life into forms and shapes it would never assume if left to its own devices. But it must be made to fit the space that is assigned to it, and the truth is there’s not much space left.

We are squeezed together, the melons and I.

Kind of like Snowpiercer
