Author’s Summary:
Tsuna has never wanted to be a mafia boss. Nobody else seems to understand this.

Perhaps it's time to make them.

Review:
Katekyou Hitman Reborn repeatedly has Tsuna objecting loudly to whatever new task he's been set as heir to a Mafia boss, then being forced to do it by way of threats. Break These Chains on Me challenges this status quo without outright abandoning it.

Tsuna and his guardians have changed a little with age, becoming more self-confident, more calm and more loyal to each other, but they are all still distinctively themselves. Over the course of the fic, Tsuna has to redefine his relationship to his guardians and to the Vongola as a whole. It is very easy to see why Tsuna doesn't want to risk these relationships, but also why his morals (and self-determination) require that he make a stand.
