Zayn is just your average guy, if you discount his shadowy past and the fact that he can read minds.  It’s not his fault that the friends he’s gathered over the years are adamant about saving the world.  All he’s doing is trying to survive, but that’s no easy task when things seem to be against him at every turn.  He’s not a hero.  None of them are, and he’s not going to change his mind about it.  It’s just hard when the world seems determined to prove him wrong.

Throw in a power-hungry super villain, a slew of well-intentioned disasters, an ensemble of willing and gifted friends, and a heaping spoonful of idiotic self-sacrifice, and you might just have yourself an origin story.

Just a heads up for all the writers that have participated in 12 Days of Destiel in the past two years; I suck at life and accidentally deleted the account that had 12DoD on it.

Essentially that means the read more’s on the fics now lead to nowheresville. Hopefully all of you have a copy of your fic saved or posted to AO3, if you do not, I sincerely apologize. I feel awful.

If you do have a copy and you’d like to re-post the full fic on your account, please feel free to do so.

If you have questions, please let me know.


(There’s a chance I still have your fic saved to my computer if you don’t have a copy. If you need one, lmk and I’ll check to see if I’ve still got it.)
