    Summary

    Shouta’s plan had been ill-defined and desperate from the start, but he figures the important shit boiled down to, “Change as little as possible, make sure Midoriya doesn’t get himself killed, and stock up on lychee jelly pouches because that flavor got discontinued three years from now.” Keeping it simple’s always better, and he’s normally good at improvising.

    Somewhere along the way, he must’ve fucked up since now he has:

    A quirkless problem child hanging off of his every word

    His best friend going through a sexuality crisis thanks to said problem child’s mom

    His other best friend clinging to him like a security blanket

    Some two-bit mob boss threatening him with bouquets of daffodils

    To wring the number one hero’s fucking neck for not telling him anything useful before sending him decades into the past

    All he did was walk Izuku Midoriya home. It wasn’t meant to turn into whatever mess this is.

    Summary

    Izuku blinks up at Shigaraki Tomura. Shimura Tenko. A host of other names he’s heard from Dabi. Sensei’s- All for One’s protégé.

    He’s not much older than Izuku is.

    -

    Caught unaware by the recent turn of events, Izuku must make a decision: stay and help, knowing that it will hurt his family and friends, or leave and risk letting this golden opportunity slip through his fingers.

    Meanwhile, the Aizawa-Yamada family is left reeling. With a semi-permanent guest in the house, they have to learn how to navigate their new reality while keeping stable as dark truths come to light...

    Summary

    "So why should I be the one to go?! You’re the teacher! The Hero!! What good could someone like me do?!”

    “Izuku.” The man’s voice was harsh, and made the younger man’s eyes focus on his friend. His eyes softened. “It must be you. You’re not who you were back then. You aren’t useless. Remember this: You are a Hero. And the world is counting on you—even if nobody realizes it. Here. When the time comes... give this to him. You'll know he trusts you when he calls you 'Problem Child.'" He smiled fondly, handing Izuku a pair of rings on a chain.

    ~~~~~~~

    When the world ends, their only hope is to send one Quirkless man back in time. Back in his 14-year-old body, will Midoriya Izuku be able to save the world that shunned him all his life? And will he finally be able to become a hero this go around?

    Good thing he had time as a vigilante to practice.

    Summary

    Present Mic stood at the front of the class and opened his arms wide.

    “I am being posted in a different area of Japan for a hero mission for four weeks, so I won’t be teaching you in that time. Your homeroom teacher Aizawa has kindly offered to teach you English in my place.”

    There was a collective moan of anguish amongst the class and Izuku raised an eyebrow as Kaminari looked like he was seriously considering leaping out of the window.

    “But that is not all!”

    Izuku refocused his attention on his teacher, panicking slightly. Aizawa’s wrath was surely bad enough, so what--

    “I would like you, the students of Class 1A, to take over my radio show while I’m gone!”

    Silence fell upon the classroom and the green haired boy looked at their English teacher like he was crazy. Iida was the first to speak up.

    “Um...with all due respect Sensei, we’re not really cut out for this kind of...hero...work? Shouldn’t we focus our time on studies or training instead of--”

    “--The students with the highest listener count will receive extra credit and a special prize from yours truly.”

    The mood in the classroom changed almost instantly and Izuku beamed.

    Summary

    Izuku has a shapeshifting quirk. He's not the best at controlling it, especially under stress. So when tragedy strikes and he gets lost in the city, he's stuck as a cat.

    At least he found a nice underground hero to take him in?

    Summary

    When he was young, Midoriya always wondered what his mythos would be. The matching half to his quirk, the ancestry of its power. Mythos were strange things, not linked genetically like quirks seemed to be.
    They weren’t indicative of quirk or ability, or personality or characteristic. Some people heard whispers or roars, or a blessed voice whispering a name they never heard before.
    Kacchan always boasted his mythos would be something amazing. Something flashy and strong- like the screams and roars that flickered on the computer screen.

    Like the three synchronous roars, from the gates of hell as Endeavour unleashed hellfire, and Cerberus devoured.

    Midoriya hadn't met his mythos. Even in UA.

    Summary

    Yagi Toshinori watched the green haired boy walk away after saving his friend and shook his head. While the boy's actions were heroic, he was just too reckless. He walked in the opposite direction, thinking about a time he could meet the candidate Sir Nighteye put forward.

    Izuku Midoriya goes home and decides that, even if he can't be hero himself, he can still help them with his analysis. Cue Izuku catching the attention of multiple heroes who are a little more open-minded and willing to see the potential in a quirkless kid.

    This fic has a discord.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku does not have a quirk. What he has - according to specialists - is an overactive imagination and by extent extremely vivid dreams.
    But things are never quite so simple, are they?

    Alas Midoriya Izuku travels throughout multiverse while asleep and learns all kind of useful skills.

    Summary

    With a heavy sigh the boy at his back collapsed, bright green eyes flicking over his shoulder as All Might lost the battle to maintain his form...but that was alright. He recognized the scrawny, bruised boy staring up at him. A wall grew up to separate them from the students, but the boy didn’t seem to notice.

    “Are you alright, All Might?”

    The boy had been skinny when he’d last seen him, but now there was a slightly gaunt look to his bruised face and a scar like peeling paint stretched up from his jaw. The mess of dark curly hair was the same though, as was the light in those shy eyes. This boy…where had he even come from? Exhausted, Toshinori allowed himself to drop into the dirt beside him.

    “Thanks to you…Midoriya Izuku.”

    One of Midoriya’s eyes was swelling shut, but the other still widened in shock before a blazingly bright smile broke across his face.

     

    ---

    TLDR: Midoriya is kidnapped by Shigaraki for a year and is slowly adopted by 1-A as he works through the resulting trauma and fights to become a hero.

    Summary

    He thought it would be different.
    UA was supposed to be different.
    He didn't take into account he had a quirk now. Given to him oh-so-graciously by All Might.
    That's what made it different.
    He found this out, one lesson at UA. Found out what his friends would think of him if he was Quirkless.
    He doesn't take it well.

    Summary

    Izuku really liked messing with his friends and he honestly couldn't believe he got away with half of the lies that came out of his mouth. It was the most fun he'd had in his life. He really, truly, had convinced most of his classmates that he and everyone else were the illegitimate love children of the greatest super villain of all time. His puppy-dog eyes and innocent face had more power than he could ever fathom.

    Summary

    "Be careful what you wish for."

    If only someone told Izuku this sooner. Maybe he could have been lucky enough to be born quirkless. Yet he knows, through each painful death, that things could have been worse.

    So much worse.

    Summary

    “Uh- I, um-” Izuku clears his throat. “Wh-what size? Do you want your drink in?”

    “Oh,” the man says, and he blinks once, lashes fanning over his cheeks- they’re white, his lashes are white- “Medium.”

    “O-okay!” Izuku sputters out, jabbing the order onto the screen. “What’s your name?”

    The man pauses. Then he opens his mouth, closes it again, then says, “Shou.”

    “Shou,” Izuku mutters, testing it on his tongue. He taps in the name. “If you would please make your way to the left towards the waiting area, we’ll have your drink ready soon!”

    “I haven’t paid yet though,” Shou says, and Izuku hears Uraraka muffle her laughter behind him.

    Summary

    "Vla- no, not him." Shota scowled, he would rather give up all his naps than live to see the day where Sekijiro Kan of all people became his superior. "Snipe?!"

    "Not emotionally available at the moment as he is currently battling his romantic feelings for Kayama-san." Shota shot back down.

    "For the love of god-!"

    "As you can see, me appointing you as principal is the only logical decision available,"
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Or: Nezu goes on a week long business trip and makes Aizawa the temporary principal while he's gone, giving him all the powers the principal of UA would normally have. Aizawa, prepared to use this power to it's full capacity, silently vows to make as many changes to UA as he can in a single week. He appoints Midoriya as his secretary for the time being and together they wreak havoc among the school, showing no mercy to any obstacle in their path (And maybe becoming father and son along the way). The rest of the staff and students are left to sit back and watch as everything they know goes up in flames.

    Summary

    When Izuku Midoriya agrees to spend the summer in Tokyo with his boyfriend, Shouto Todoroki, he envisions a humble family home, free time while Shouto does hero work, and quality time with the man he might one day marry. Sure, heroes made money, but he couldn't be THAT rich... right?

    What he doesn't know is that Shouto's family home happens to look like a Japanese palace, that he'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible heroes on his arm, Izuku might as well have a target on his back.

    What he does have is a degree in support gear engineering, a best friend who's just about as hare-brained as he is, a thirst for justice, and a whole lot of caffeine.

    Summary

    "You there, nobody is authorized to be in the gardens at this time. Explain yourself," Todoroki demanded. The figure yelped, dropping the tool they had in their hand and stumbling back until they fell. Todoroki brandished his weapon to the figure who stumbled over their words. He approached them until he could get a clear view of their face.

    The gardener he had seen from a distance time and time again frantically tried to speak, staring at the dagger. Todoroki put his blade away, stretching out a hand to the sputtering servant.

    "My apologies for threatening you. However, my original question still stands: what are you doing here?" Todoroki asked.
