I wonder how long he’s wanted this. I wonder how long I’ve wanted it. I’d say that I didn’t-that the possibility just now occurred to me for the first time. But if that’s true, then why is there a list in my head of all the things I’ve always wanted to do to Baz.
Canon is a Lie AU (a.k.a. What the Hell is Going On AU)
Technically, this is a role swap AU but then again…
(Anyways, we’ve always had Tsuna-Reborn role swap, we had 1st gen-10th gen role swap, Arcobaleno role swap, even the Varia and the Millefiore! Why not put a spin to the usual role swap AU?)
Tsuna breaks the Arcobaleno curse and everything is alright in the world. After the long and tiresome battle with the Vindice and the face-off with Checkerface, he was looking forward to a brand-new, crisis-free day. He fell asleep, totally exhausted.
He wakes up and notices something odd. The house was eerily quiet— no laughter from the kids, no screams of panic from Bianchi, and most of all, no wake-up calls from Reborn. In fact, the one who woke him up was his mother, telling him about his failing grade on a Math test.
He gets up from his bed, leaves his room, and follows his mom downstairs. No one was around but the two of them.
His mom cheerily tells him, “Tsu-kun, I’ve hired you a home tutor!”
Her words made him freeze in his steps.
This was… the first day he met Reborn? Why was he back here again? Did he travel back in time? Those thoughts plagued his mind.
The doorbell rings and his mom comes to greet whoever it is on the other side. He tags along. Tsuna braces himself, waiting for Reborn’s appearance and cheerful “Ciaossu!”.
That was not the sight that greeted him at the door.
“You must be Sawada Nana and Sawada Tsunayoshi,” The baby bows respectfully. “Ni hao, I am Fon, the home tutor.”
What the hell is going on?
The rest of the adventures simply boil down to…

In the early 90′s in Australia, a string of horrific murders took place. Seven people were killed, 5 of those were backpackers (3 German and 2 English). The bodies were buried in Belango State Forrest.
In September 1992, joggers found a body and immediately after police started to investigate they found another. The bodies were that of British backpackers Caroline Clarke and Joanna Walters. Clarke was shot 10 times whilst Walters was stabbed 32 times. Jump to October 1993, a local man found the bodies of Deborah Everist and James Gibson. In 1993, the skull of Simone Schmidle was found, she has been missing since 1991, but she was found with clothing of another missing backpacker. Those clothes belonged to Anja Habschied, her and her boyfriend Gabor Neugebauer’s bodies were found days later.
Ivan Milat was the murderer, in 1994 he was arrested and charged with the murders. Previously he was charged with raping two women, but it was because of failing at kidnapping another tourist he was picked out in a line out.
In 1996, he was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
In popular culture, Wolf Creek was loosely based on these murders as well as the disappearance of Peter Falconio
Captain America Collectors’ Preview #1 cover by John Byrne & Jerry Ordway & Joe Simon. 1995.
The top image is from Jim Warden’s art collection. He had this to say about it.
John Byrne pencilled this piece for a wrap-around cover to a Captain America #1 reprint in the 1990’s. Joe Simon inked the published version on overlay, so I obtained the pencils from John and commissioned Jerry Ordway to ink them.
