This is the poison of stagnation. You grow drowsy. Your heart rate slows, and when you do move you can't seem to stop shaking. It may seem to others that you're lazy, or reticent. Like you avoid hard work on purpose, like you always take the easy way out. But you know deep down that it wouldn't be like this if you weren't so tired, so deeply tired. If you weren't crushed under the weight of sorrow like a mile of water over your head. Nothing brings you peace, except rest and-- though you can hardly dare to ask-- having someone tend to you gently and sweetly. A good gardener speaks to their plants, sings to them, waters them, fertilizes their soil, prunes the dead parts, nurtures the new growth. You yearn to be cared for like that, even though you feel you don't deserve it. The secret is that you do. You always have. And someday, you'll learn that, and receive that care, and the exhaustion won't keep you from growing strong and lovely anymore. You were never the problem. These are simply poor growing conditions for you.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE YEARNING
“You can’t control who dies.” That was obvious. But that was what was bothering Garfield. Death. It followed him for years now. His moms, Wally, and even Kaze. They all died. Kaze may have come back, but he wouldn’t have if not for Kaze’s father. Otherwise, that was four people he’s lost in his life. The list seemed to grow. And grow steadily faster. Who was next? Who else would he loose? And was it because of him? Was Garfield the problem?
“Ow…” She groaned as she rubbed her sore behind from the rough landing. “What the hell…? Why is there a hole here.” She looked up at the opening of the hole, trying to figure a way of getting out. Frowning, she sighed as she tried to climb up some roots to get out only for one of them to snap and her to fall back in on her ass.
Kat would end up stuck there for about an hour before someone, or something, would visit the hole. The sky had retreated its light from above, making the surrounding trees grow darker by the minute. Heavy foot falls would soon be heard, then a soft shuffling as a large body settled at the edge of the ten-foot wide hole. A large head covered in sleek, black fur appeared in full view.
“Wow, it worked! I caught a people!” It’s excitement was apparent in it’s voice as it displayed a row of sharp teeth.
Hawks grinned at his partner, already dressed up for the meeting tonight with the League. Apparently Dabi had sent a secret code to him about some sort of gathering that was happening at a remote location, one that only a few people are invited to.
Tonight was gonna be a real long one, huh?
He just hoped Kaze was prepared for what’s to come. They had already discussed a few things together, especially on what the dynamic and plans are to be if they were gonna be in this deep under cover case together.
Especially when it comes to convincing Dabi of all people they weren’t gonna try anything and were genuine in joining their cause.
Haaaa, hopefully I can have enough energy and prepared for this night...
óÓÒò“Well....I don’t really have anything witty to say here....” The werewolf said as he was pinned to the ground. He was honestly surprised that he even was. Who the hell was this guy? Why did he smell weird? “Normally I’m okay with bottoming, though knives don’t do anything for me. Care to put that away please?”óÓÒò

“Kaze!” Mattie had been searching everywhere, but it felt like every time he had the chance to talk to him, Kaze was never there. Though this time he managed to catch the other before he could hide away in his dorm room. Blue-violet eyes stared at the other as he hurried over, panting lightly. “There you are, I’ve been looking everywhere for you...”
Usually, he wouldn't be a part of this sort of patrol. He only had eye and ear protection, unlike others in his class who had masks and filters... but the villain was one from America, one the blond knew quite a bit about;
Mania. A woman with a quirk much like Midnight, able to create a mist from her body. Though rather than causing the victims to sleep, they instead become obsessed with her, doing anything she asks, from theft to even assult... or murder.
Mattie was just supposed to identify, signal, and stay back, but of course things never go right. When he seperated from Kaze, Izuku, and a couple pros theu were with, even on his light hover board he was hit out of the air by one of the obsessed victims...right into the mist.
Kaze smiled as he chewed his food. “It’s a nice little sweet store about 20 minutes away on foot. They also have the little traditional sugar stars, I tend to get those as a treat when I go on walks.” He smiled softly. “I sometimes feel like it’s getting harder to find traditional Japanese sweets nowadays. But I’m glad that there are still people who make them.”
“Oh, that sounds wonderful~” The blond chimed. “I’ve always wanted to try more traditional treats too, but as you said; it’s difficult to find places,” He sighed a little. “Maybe when the next school break we get comes around, we can look at trying to find some ‘niche’ places? That’d be pretty fun to try and do,” He suggested with a hum as he finished his food.
How did this happen? Even with his quirk, the vigilante didn’t see this coming. At least, not quite like this. He had heard of rumors of some villains planning on blowing a building up, and had already dropped as much intel to both the building staff AND the American hero association (anonymously, of course), but there were still people inside. He may be known as a ‘hero killer’, but he’s not a heartless monster, and it’s not the first time Deadshot’s risked his life to save civilians. Of course, most so-called ‘heroes’ didn’t respond right away, wanting to probably make some grand entrance or some shit.
Of course, this meant running into heroes who were in there saving people already. One of them; Mirage, the Illusion hero. During a scuffle, something happened, and the two of them got trapped under rubble after he shoved her out of the way of the falling debris... but that didn’t come without a price. Even with all his protective gear, somehow his leg still was hurt.
“Shit, I think the floors above us finally collapsed,”
By the time Kaze was done, Mattie was surprisingly still in the locker room, of course this time he was clothed in a thick sweater and jeans, but was busy with trying to still dry his hair. Though he looked distracted, as if his mind was far elsewhere.... probably why he was still there.
