    Summary

    Izuku's Quirk manifest at the tender age of five. It's strange that he would have a fire Quirk given what his mother's Quirk is, but he initially chalks it up to genetics on his father's side.

    Then there's a familiar stranger in the kitchen, and everything changes.

    Summary

    The change can't be immediate, or it’ll seem forced. It has to take time, in order to be realistic. He knows that.

    He’ll need to seem like a villain. But he’ll be a hero.

    And for that, Hitoshi thinks he’d do just about anything.

     

    Or,

    Someone's selling UA's secrets, and Shinsou Hitoshi definitely doesn't have anything to prove.

    Summary

    When Midoriya Izuku is 13 years old, he is kidnapped on his way home from school by a villain.
    One year later he is found and returned home with some scars, no memories of the events he went through, and a latent fire quirk.
     

    Izuku has to live a double life if he and his loved ones are to survive, even if that means lying to everyone and committing deeds that he’s not sure the heroes would forgive him for. He just needs to come up with a plan to defeat one of the most powerful men in the world, maintain both of his covers in the presence of enemies and allies alike, and hopefully not forget the “real” him.

    Bakugou Katsuki is certain that Izuku has been lying to everyone since the day he had been rescued. And he’s going to figure out his secret.

    Summary

    AU. Midoriya Izuku shouldn't be surprised he ended up like this: hiding the secret of One for All from his own father, the notorious villain Dragon. The path to being a hero is a hard one.

    Or; Izuku is an aspiring hero forced to work for his father’s villain organization. Then he runs into All Might.

    Villainry, as Izuku's father liked to say, ran in the blood. It liked to stalk in the shadows and hook its claws into you when you least expected it. It liked to remind Izuku specifically that he could never really be a hero the way he’d always dreamed of.

    Summary

    The greatest threat to hero society isn't those who know only darkness- it's those who were born into the light and abandon it willingly.

    Once, Midoriya Izuku wanted nothing more than to be a hero, but heartbreak, time, and his idol's betrayal have changed that. Actions have consequences, and a person can only bear so much suffering and torment before they reach their breaking point. Midoriya has a new set of passions now, and a new group of friends- he's not the only U.A. student with a dark side, after all, and soon, the League won't be the only group of villains in town.

    As Izuku and his fellow ex-U.A. allies carve a bloody path through hero society, it falls to All Might's chosen successor, the new Symbol of Peace, to stop him- but at the end of the day, she's just one woman, surrounded by enemies, traitors, and false friends.

    All orderly systems gradually tend toward chaos. No one is immune to entropy, heroes least of all.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku goes missing as a child. No villain is ever held accountable, no one ever brings his mother any answers. For ten years, the only people who remember the quiet, Quirkless boy are Inko and Bakugo Katsuki. They both feel his loss in different, inexplicable ways.

    Eraserhead's been on the hunt for an elusive villain only known by the press as 'Ghost'. No fingerprints, blood, or evidence of any kind can ever be found at the scene of the crimes. All of the villain's cases inevitably run cold.

    Izuku wishes he'd been born Quirkless after all. Maybe then, he could've believed in heroes. Maybe then, he could've turned into someone good.

    Summary

    - but the sleeve of his tracksuit was bulging, tearing and ripping and a mass of twisted flesh, nearly as big as the boy himself and nauseatingly familiar (the arm of the man that had torn a hole in his side with a grin and left him a frail shadow of himself) swung forward and slammed into the flat face of the giant robot.

    Izuku wants to be a hero more than anything.

    Summary

    Digitally-Equipped Kinesics Unit (or DEKU, for short) was the new communication device that took the world by storm. It could be folded several times, charged with body heat, and most importantly—in times of emergencies, DEKU users could use its messenger to connect with nearby users even if the signal was weak.


    Midoriya Izuku, the nerd that he was, ate instant cup noodles for three months just so he could save money to buy a DEKU. His schedule for the next week was booked, and half the time would be spent bonding with his new phone.

    Izuku’s plans were ruined when DEKU started beeping like crazy. Thinking it might be someone who needed help, he answered the call.

    Izuku got A LOT more than he bargained for: An angry guy who woke up all tied up in a ‘disgusting, godawful’ room, had no memories of himself, and someone was out there to kill him.

    It was now up to the nerdy, instant cup noodles-obsessed college student to help the angry guy survive. Oof.

    Summary

    Izuku inherited his parents’ quirks, but he swore he’d never use his fire.

    He knows first hand how—bright, burning, scorching, painful, terrifying, destructive—it is, after all, and Izuku promised (promised his crying mother, promised his burning self, promised the laughing memory of his father) that he’d become a hero who stops that kind of despair.

    Even if he has to burn his own wings to do so.

    But when someone with the exact same problems, fears, and pain shows up... Izuku can't help but try to heal them. And in doing so, he himself may be healed too.

    Summary

    Izuku was never quirkless.

    Sometimes quirks hide until they are triggered. Izuku tasted death and found it lacking, every flavour bitter and lacking spice. In the moments between death and life, he gazed into the howling abyss and it followed him home. Everything he thought he knew about the world is a lie. There are monsters lurking in the dark below, always waiting and always watching, hidden by the shadows.

    They wait patiently, waiting for one to sit upon a throne of crystal madness and eternal suffering. They have waited for aeons and will wait until the end of eternity.

    They wait for Izuku Midoriya.

    Summary

    Midoriya has been told a lot of things his entire life, like "Love", "Safe", and "Protect."

    He wants to believe them. As the years trickle by and time fluctuates, he tries to understand them.

    He can't.

    And then U.A. comes and swipes his feet out from underneath him. And, if he's to be honest, he doesn't mind it too much, even if each day slowly wears him away. Piece by piece, bit by bit.

    (And if they're there to put him back together again, well, he doesn't mind that either.)

    Summary

    At a young age, Izuku Midoriya gave up his dream to become a hero. He didn't have a quirk. He was not special. He longed to be remembered. He wanted to be known. He wanted people to see him, and what he did, and smile.

    It was only at age 15 did he realize that seeing them suffer may be even more enjoyable, and that the quirk he had never known was a beautifully horrible one indeed. It was time to create art, and time to change the world forever.

    Summary

    Juxtapose. Verb, meaning: to place two things together in a contrasting manner. In this case, two points of divergence.

    Izuku Midoriya, an aspiring Hero with a useless Quirk, is heartbroken when his lifelong idol tells him to reconsider his options. He doesn't know what else to do but cry in the park until a husk of a man offers him ice cream. The man, named Toshinori Yagi, tells Izuku that he might still have a chance: If he worked hard and entered Yuuei's General Education program, then he could potentially transfer into the Hero Course if he won the Sports Festival.

    With a new path forward and a mentor to guide him, Izuku takes a very different road towards becoming a hero.

    Summary

    There’s a first time for everything.
    The first time everyone crammed in Momo’s room to study, a mess of limbs and books on her bed.
    The first time Mina burned crepes so badly the smoke alarm went off.
    The first time a jumpscare got Sero so badly, he flipped off the back of the couch.
    The first time Uraraka fell asleep at the table and accidentally sent it floating.
    The first time someone realized Todoroki walked far too quietly, and far too cautiously around the dorms to be normal.
    The first time Midoriya broke his toe on a door frame and kept walking through it.
    The first time Kirishima woke up screaming through the walls.
    The first time Tsuyu blanched at the sight of a needle.
    The first time Bakugo dropped, clutching the back of his neck with eyes scarily vacant and detonating everything around him until Aizawa had to intervene.
    It wasn’t always pretty, but the dorms were filled with firsts.

    Summary

    You stole it, you stole it, give it back!` tears were streaming down the blonds cheeks.
    No, that couldn’t be right, Kacchan was strong, he never cried.
    (But he did)
    Kacchan kept yelling, kept crying, but didn’t get any closer.
    (He did, and you made him cry)
    Izuku took a few steps back. He didn’t steal it, did he? He, he couldn’t have stolen it. Stealing was bad, and he wasn’t bad. Heroes didn’t steal. Only villains ever stole. Only villains ever hurt people and made them cry. And.. and he wasn’t a villain...
    ....was he?

    Summary

    He felt everything jerk to the side and throw his balance off before he saw anything, dust clouding his vision and irritating his lungs as the earth itself opened up to swallow them whole. For a single moment, in a millisecond's time, his wild eyes locked with Raccoon Eyes', hers alight with fear and adrenaline-fueled desperation. Somewhere in the back of his mind, he realized that it was the first time she'd looked at him with something other than long deserved hatred in days.

    And then he was free falling.

    Or
    After a particularly nasty encounter between Kacchan and Deku, the class practically ostracizes Bakugou while trying to defend Midoriya. An earthquake during an outing has all sides regretting their decisions.

    Summary

    You wake up at UA, the highest ranked hero school in the country, with no recollection of how you got there. Unfortunately, those aren't the only memories you're missing. Still, you can't let a little amnesia get in the way of you warning the school about the attack you know will happen during Class 1-A's field trip to the USJ. After you deliver your warning, you're beyond shocked when the principal offers you a position as a TA for Class 1-A. You accept the position in hopes that you'll be able to use your Quirk to help protect the students. It'll be far from easy, but you're determined to do whatever it takes to change the students' future for the better.

    I can't believe I actually get to say this, but this fic has a TV Tropes page now!!!! You can check it out here!.
