What the Hand Dare Seize the Fire? is a Tiger & Bunny fanfiction that takes place in an Alternate Universe where most NEXT are sold as slaves. At the beginning, we meet a Kotetsu who used to run a safe house for escaped NEXT and now just does his best to avoid market street. One day a pale, bleeding, and brokenNEXT shows up on his doorstep.
