I don't own Harry Potter or Big Hero 6.

Summary: Haru gets trapped in the fire and Tadashi goes to get him. Not being able to take him out of the burning building, he decides to stay with him.

Pairing: Haru/Tadashi

Prompt: T Rate, Major Character Death (be warned)

I was listening to some of my music on shuffle and 'Everything' by Lifehouse came up and it just flowed... it's not exactly based on this song but it makes me think on what could have been for them.

**EDIT: I made some edits but I'm still not content with it :/


"Wake up." He murmured over the crackling of the flames. "Please, wake up."

"It's a dream. It's only a dream. It has to be." He kept repeating over and over trying to deceive himself, it was surely all a dream, a nightmare more like, he will wake up soon enough on his bed and Tadashi will be there next to him, telling him how stupid he was to be this shaken by a nightmare, he wanted to believe that but the pain on his legs under the steel girder told him otherwise. "Please. Wake up."

"Haru!" He suddenly heard. "Haru! Where are you?!"

"Tadashi?" He mumbled facing the source of the voice, blinking rapidly; the smoke and the heat were blurring his vision. "Please don't." He started when he saw him rushing towards him. "Don't come near!"

"I'm going to take you out of here." He said inspecting the bar.

"I can't! My legs are stuck!" Haru exclaimed, tears flowing. "Please! You have to leave!"

"I won't leave you here!" He yelled above the crackling of the flames and tried to lift the steel bar. "You can't-!" Haru hollered in pain and Tadashi left it as it was and stared at him worriedly. Kneeling next to him, he brushed Haru's hair out of his face.

"Please… just leave me." He whispered taking hold of his hands. "Hiro needs you. Cass needs you. Don't do this. Please." He stared into his eyes. "Leave while you can."

Tadashi shook his head frantically. "I can't. I can't and I won't." He took his hand tightly into his. "We made a promise, remember?" He asked. "For better or for worse, we'll always be together."

Haru let out a watery laugh. "Those are wedding vows. I don't remember that promise."

"Well, I said that now." He insisted. "Would you?" Tadashi started and pulled a little box out of his pocket. "Would you marry me?"

Haru stared at him incredulously, face damp in tears. "This is not-"

"Would you marry me?" He asked again, staring intently into his eyes.

"Yes." He whispered, nodding, tears falling. "Yes."

Tadashi opened the box and pulled one of the rings out.

"I…" He started and took a deep breath, blinking the tears away. "I love you…" He said, taking his hand. "You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had." He lifted his hand and laid a kiss on the top as Haru took a shaky breath. "With this ring, I promise to love and cherish you, to be the one that will hold your smiles and tears, to help you light your path... for now and forever." He recited as he slowly placed the ring on his finger. The ring fitted snugly.

Haru stared at it for a few seconds and slowly took the other ring, taking Tadashi's hand.

He smiled, looking into his eyes, tears gathering in the corners of his eyes. "I love you." He started. "For all that you are, all that you have been, and all that you're yet to be." He took a shaky breath and continued. "I promise to love and cherish you, to be the one…" His voice shook. "that will hold your smiles and tears," Tadashi gripped his hand in comfort and he smiled gratefully, returning the gesture. "to help you light your path… for now… and forever." He placed the ring on his finger.

Tadashi lifted a hand and wiped his tears and soot, caressing his cheek. "I love you." He whispered, placing their foreheads together.

Blinking away his tears, Haru gripped the back of his head tightly. "I love you."

'Is this how we are going to die?' Haru thought.

Tadashi slowly pulled away and placed his lips on top of his in a desperate kiss. The kiss wasn't filled with passion, it was filled with remorse and longing.

He couldn't see Tadashi's face, but he knew that he was crying. He didn't want to let others know when he was feeling vulnerable. He never cried in front of him but he sometimes used to hold him tight and won't let him see his face.

He could taste the salt of the tears. He didn't know whose tears they were, and he honestly didn't care. The only thing he could do was hold him trying to give any kind of comfort.

He slowly pulled away to look at him in the eye. He wasn't surprised to see that there were tears in his eyes, both of them have been crying it didn't matter anymore. He kissed the tears away and whispered sweet nothings. Repeating over and over how much he loved him.

And then an explosion.


AN: *clears throat* Please don't kill me. I was suffering when I wrote this…
