    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku has always been a bit strange.

    Anyone will tell you that he's a ray of sunshine, and fun to be around-- but they might also tell you not to feel bad if he seems to suddenly look through you with his unsettlingly pale eyes, or to refrain from asking about his family, or his Quirk. He'll always be at the Viridian Cafe, serving pastries and smiles, in the warm atmosphere of fresh-brewed coffee and cats running amok. But you may also find him elsewhere-- observing heroes' fights, or heading somewhere with a flower bouquet.

    Indeed, Midoriya Izuku is a bit of a mystery, but as long as you respect the cafe and don't try to pry, the Viridian will open its doors for you, too.

    (The story of approximately eighty billion different futures and the one boy who can see them all.)

    Summary

    If the discrimination towards Izuku was a little bit worse, and if Izuku wasn't as forgiving...

    Well.

    (Featuring: All Might's horrible teaching, a slightly more self-aware Izuku, the League, and a bunch of traumatized kids.)

    Summary

    "Kid, you ain't got no quirk, no muscle, and no battle sense. There's no way you'll be a hero like the big man. But that's fine. Cause instead of dressing you up in star-spangled underpants, I'm gonna make you fuckin' mean."

    It's not All Might who saves Izuku from the slime villain, but rather a certain cotton tailed heroine. She has a much different approach then the #1, and decides that the trembling beanstalk of a kid has enough guts to go pro. Ft. Confident! Izuku, Parental! Mirko, and enough sass to make my eyes bleed.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku is not normal, even in a world filled with quirks.

    Or how a boy unaware of his lineage causes chaos, like a true Addams.

    Summary

    It’s funny to him, how this all ended up. It wasn’t like he was anyone special. He was raised by his single mother, in a middle-class neighborhood in Mutsufasu. Then Mom lost her job and they’d had to downsize drastically.

    He doesn’t know if moving to the slums started something or accelerated what had already begun.

    Summary

    “Be realistic.”

    Ten years old and so, so tired, Izuku stands there a long time, staring blankly into the distance as tears roll silently down his face. The words echo in his ears.
    Mom’ll get over it. Dad’ll come back and she can have a better, Quirked kid that Kaachan can play big brother to, that isn’t so weak she has to worry herself to death. No one else will care.
    Because ‘realistic’, for a Quirkless kid, is janitorial work, death by hate crime, or ‘a swan dive off the roof’.

    Why do they always slip off their shoes? He slips off his shoes. It feels right.

    “Please don’t,” a woman said softly.

    Izuku doesn’t turn.

    Summary

    It was no rarity for heroes to start scoping potential interns in their last year of junior high, it happened all over Japan, always the last year of junior high though, never anything before, right on the cusp for applying to a hero school, for the hero hopefuls.
    Aldera Junior High didn’t get very many interested heroes, it was just how it was, Aldera wasn’t a top tier junior high school, it wasn’t even considered to be in the middle, it was low class, standard, meeting expectations. So when word spread across the student body of a hero planning to visit to survey for a possible intern, it was the talk of the school, people kept an eye out to see who it’d be, looking and listening for an outsiders voice, for the unknown man or woman coming to check them out for a possible internship.

    Summary

    It lifts it’s head and they stare at each other, bright green baring into warm gold, and, like any rational minded person when they see a large black panther laying on their balcony, he raises the plastic bag containing his smorgasbord of fried food and asks—“Want some food?”

    Summary

    @TheImmortalDeku
    So, I’ve been contemplating my life recently, and I’ve decided to jump of the roof of a really tall building and throw a watermelon over with me and see which one lands first. @OfficialHawks seeing as to how you fly I assume you’re a genius when it comes to aerodynamics, which one do you think would land first?

    Summary

    Holding his expensive camera tightly between his hands, Midoriya Izuku looked up at the once-white letters displayed on the black storefront banner. “The Hard Luck Bar,” he murmured to himself, unsure if he was getting ready to enter or flee.

    Amateur photographer Midoriya Izuku is stuck in a rut and desperate for a change of pace. Deep in his city's grimy underbelly, he finds exactly what he's looking for in the form of an underground punk sensation on the verge of their big break, fronted by a foul-mouthed firework of a human being.

    Loud, brash and passionate, Izuku may have just found the creative spark he needed, as well as something new to set his soul ablaze.

    Summary

    No one spots the cracks. No one notices how carefully pieced together he is. Under his bright smile and determined gaze no one sees, no one hears, NO ONE feels how broken he is.

    At least, that’s what he thought.

     

    Izuku is not human. He is a fraud. Not deserving of any love. Nothing but a vile monster.

    At least, that’s what he believed.

     

    He’s made of scales not glass. He’s always in control. He is invincible.

    That is, until he became Midoriya Izuku.

    Summary

    When he was 4, Izuku was deemed Quirkless. Having two joints in your pinky toe was a sure way to prove if one was born with a Quirk or not. There were only ever 2 cases in all of documented Quirk History where someone with the extra joint had developed a Quirk, so it was with absolute 100% certainty that the doctor had informed the crushed child and devastated mother that he would never develop one.

    He was wrong.

    A story where Izuku has an immortality Quirk that he finds more annoying than anything else. Featuring a Detective Tsukauchi who's practically adopted our favorite Green Bean.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku is finally going to get it all. He's met the Number One Hero, All Might, and now he's going to receive his quirk! He begins training with his mentor, and although he's finally working toward his dream, other aspects of his life start going downhill. He's being bullied at school, his mother is having financial problems, and then... the unthinkable happens.

    Bakugou Katsuki is only just beginning to figure himself out. After Deku saves him from the slime villain, he starts putting pieces together that he had never acknowledged before. Is it possible that at fifteen years old, there are still things about himself that he doesn't know yet? And why the hell is Deku acting so fucking weird?

    Alternatively: Izuku going through trauma before and after U.A., and Katsuki finding out that he's gay
