Fanfic / The Here Comes After Verse

Go To

Hiro never dreamed that he'd get his brother back but when he does, he discovers that there's going to be a massive adjustment period…and it's off to a rough start.

     Stories currently in this AU, in rough chronological order 

The Here Comes After Verse contains examples of:

  • Adorkable: Tadashi continues to be this trope in “Birthday Gifts”, worrying over getting his brother the perfect birthday gift and feeling threatened because he's not the only spotlight in Hiro's life.
  • Affectionate Gesture to the Head: Tadashi frequently ruffles Hiro's hair; the younger boy doesn't usually seem to mind.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Hiro uses both “Nii-chan” and “Dashi” for his older brother who in turn calls him “Otouto”.
  • Bad Dreams: Hiro gets them about the fire and Gogo's section of “Nii-chan” features one he gets in the aftermath of a movie that had a house fire scene in it.
  • Bad Liar: Hiro and Tadashi both. In the second chapter of “Here Comes After”, Wasabi as well.
  • Berserk Button: Messing with Hiro is one for the team in general; Fred wipes the floor with some jerks who decided to bully Hiro by shoving him into a locker and after Hiro's safely with Honey, proceeds to have Heathcliff investigate the bullies' past and arrange for their expulsion if Hiro isn't their first victim.

  • Big Brother Instinct/Big Sister Instinct: Demonstrated by all team members and Tadashi towards Hiro. Hiro also has a massive Little Brother Instinct, insisting that Tadashi take fewer classes (and would have kept him out of school for a long time if he hadn't been talked out of it) and throwing a complete fit at the idea of Tadashi going out into the field with the team.
  • Breather Episode: Chapter 2 of “Here Comes After”, focusing on the insane competition over the team's suit specs between the Hamada brothers after Rule 422 is evoked and the rest of the team's disbelief at their crazy antics.
  • Color Motifs: The author noticed that the color red symbolizes the bonds that Hiro has with Tadashi and Baymax and the story “Scarlet” is all about how that's shown.
  • Combat Medic: Name-dropped by Tadashi when he was designing his suit.

  • Covered with Scars: Tadashi after the fire though his face is mostly untouched.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": Cass insists that no one on the team call her “ma'am.”
  • Dope Slap: Fred receives these a lot, usually from Gogo. Hiro also receives one from Tadashi when he curses about leaving his disk at school in “Birthday Gifts”.
  • Foil: Callaghan's status as this to Hiro is mused on by Hiro; he doesn't like the implications of their similarities.
  • Group Hug: Done towards the end of the first chapter of “Here Comes After”.
  • He's All Grown Up: Non-romantic example with Hiro; Tadashi feels out of place due to how much his little brother has changed while he was unconscious.
  • It's All My Fault: Tadashi's thoughts on the changes in his relationship with Hiro and also Hiro's near death after rescuing victims of a fire.
  • Meaningful Echo: After Hiro nearly gets himself killed helping victims of an explosion, Tadashi asks what he was thinking. Hiro blinks at his older brother and replies “Because someone had to help.”
  • Mood Whiplash: Despite its Breather Episode status, chapter 2 of “Here Comes After” does feature a surprisingly tender exchange between Hiro and Fred about why Tadashi wants the specs so badly followed by a similar exchange between Fred and Tadashi and Baymax giving the specs chip to Tadashi to keep Hiro safe. Then it goes right back to crazy comedy for the last part.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: The Wham Line below causes a joint version for the Hamada brothers; Hiro for saying it and Tadashi for realizing just how much time he lost and how much he pushed his brother away when he ran into the fire after his professor.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Gogo treats the gunshot wound she received right before they found out Tadashi survived this way; no one else agrees.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: This is an underlying theme of the first chapter of “Here Comes After” as one of Hiro's biggest fears is that if he screws up too badly, Tadashi will leave again…but this time he won't come back.
  • Plot Allergy: Brief case in Honey's section of “Nii-chan” which centers on Hiro's peanut allergy flaring up and causing him to call out for Tadashi in distress.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Hiro's good at it though ultimately Tadashi can resist.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Mild case with Tadashi deciding to ignore traffic laws if it means protecting Hiro in the first chapter of “Here Comes After”.
  • Secret Keeper: Krei and Cass for the team. Eventually Tadashi joins their ranks.
  • Sleep Cute: Non-romantic example at the end of “Birthday Gifts” with Hiro falling asleep in his brother's lap; the next morning Aunt Cass can't resist taking a picture.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Everyone says that Tadashi has a brother complex over Hiro.
  • Tempting Fate: Honey does this in the first chapter of “Here Comes After” by suggesting that telling Tadashi about their superheroics will be easy and done in a nice calm setting.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Done with Fred in “Nii-chan” by some bullies who thought it would be a good idea to shove Hiro into a locker; needless to say, Fred wipes the floor with them.
  • Wham Line: In-universe example: “I'm not the one who ran into the fire!”
  • Why Did It Have to Be Small Spaces?: In Fred's section of “Nii-chan”, Hiro is heavily implied to be claustrophobic, given that being shoved into and closed in a locker brings him to frightened tears.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: The author's headcanon for Honey: sweet and demure but with a core of steel and fire.
  • You Did Everything You Could: Honey reassures Tadashi of this in “Birthday Gifts” after he admits that he's spoiling Hiro to make up for the events of and following the fire.
