This collection is a repository for stories where characters aren't quite who or what they seem, as well as characters whose outsides don't match who they really are. It has a sister community (also run by me) on ff.net. Featuring reincarnation, secret identities, amnesia, transgender characters, and more. Now also featuring characters having actual identity crises!
No self-inserts. No OCs (as the main character.) No RPF.

Todoroki Shōto, after the incident, woke up to the memories of his past life and decided that he would not be weak, credulous, or overconfident in his special abilities as everyone seems to do. NO, he, once called Haruno Sakura, will never make the same mistakes from his previous life.
What does it matter if in this world they are heroes and not ninjas?
Nothing and no one will stop him from reaching your goals.

Twelve-year-old Midoriya Izuku disappeared after getting affected by an unknown quirk. Musutafu looked for the missing kid for an entire week, but to no avail, Midoriya was gone and had left no trail behind. Until he appeared on his bed one night, as if nothing had happened, with no memory of the time he was lost.
Or that is what people were left to believe because Izuku remembers everything.
He remembers being a toddler again, alone in the dirty streets of Gotham. He remembers he Graysons, the couple who gave one look at the scared child lost in the labyrinth of alleyways not speaking a drop of English and immediately took him in if only so he could have a warm place to sleep until his "real" parents arrived. The Graysons named him Richard and taught him how to fly.
He remembers watching his parents fall.
He remembers flying again.
Izuku knows everyone is dead now. Is up to him to let the name Robin live.
Izuku was sent to the past, became a famous vigilante, and now spends his days being an edgy teen too smart for his own good.
Thank god Aizawa has migraine medicine and a heart full of patience for (1) Problem child

Skull de mort has not always been with the mafia, has not always been one of the arcobaleno.
or, a Skull-is-Harry who once again is struck by the Potter Luck and goes back in time.
"But we are brothers."
Kaeya laughed, because that was the least important reason that kept them apart, and yet it was everything. Because we are brothers. Brothers in arms, stepbrothers, and now adoptive ones. An unbreakable bond that repeated itsself over and over again, in all its tragedy.

As foolish as Shen Jiu’s instincts told him it was, when he looked at Jiang Yanli and the home Jiang Cheng loved so much, he wanted to hope that maybe Jiang Cheng at least could have his own happiness.
As Jiang Cheng broke down, his home and family gone, Shen Jiu wondered why he had even bothered hoping for such a thing.
(Or: Jiang Cheng's soul remembers that it was Shen Jiu once upon a time. This changes... not enough. Not nearly enough.)
