Summary: It was pronounced a miracle by his friends and family. Tadashi Hamada survived the SFIT Expo incident with little more than a scratch and a bump on the head.
It was believed that his survival was due to a series of extremely fortunate events. A beam fell on him in such a way as to knock him out, and since his prone body required that he breathe less oxygen, to maintain his homeostasis, the smoke inhalation did minimal damage to his lungs. Meanwhile, the rubble from the structure blanketed him from the oncoming flames. When he was pulled out of the wreckage, it was as though he were merely sleeping.
Despite his excellent condition, the doctors informed him that he had been in a coma for several days, and though their voices sounded grave, Tadashi felt as though he should have been out for much, much longer, considering the injury.

This is a gift fic for SanFransokyoHomo/Fruityntheloops
They are an amazing person who continues to inspire me with their art and fics. They have done so much for me, and this is just a small token of my gratitude. I could never, ever express how grateful I am to them for everything.
Slight warning for a tiny bit of crack shipping.
