    Summary

    After All Might gives Izuku a much needed reality check, he has to find a new dream. When he learns that the support course at UA offers an emphasis in Intelligence and Analytics, it sounds like the perfect new passion for him to throw himself into.
    Who knew? Maybe Hero Analysis for the Future was never meant for his future as a hero, but for his future helping heroes...

    This fic has a discord.

    Summary

    After Aizen’s defeat, Gin Ichimaru finds himself in a bizarre dimension of quirks, heroes, and villain but manages to find himself a new hot, big breast tall spitfire to protect and become romantically attached to.
    (Said spitfire very much does not appreciate such a description considering that as the Flame Hero: Endeavor, he needs no protection thank you very much.)

    Two wrongs don't make a right, but two assholes somehow make a functional Todoroki family unlike canon. A collection of drabbles about Endeavor's life with Gin and their four children.
    Slice of life crack, outside POV, and a million misunderstandings (but not between Gin and Enji).

    Summary

    It was a silly Quirk. It was good for making the other kids laugh, but Kacchan always said it wasn't cut out for Hero Work.

    But what does he know? After all, the world needs art! And Midoriya's art was special.

    Summary

    I'm always here for you, even if nobody is here for me.

    Midoriya Izuku is a normal boy. He has a Quirk and everything! But a seemingly weak Quirk isn't enough. Being kind isn't enough. And so Izuku suffers, even as he refuses to let go of his goals. He will be a hero, no matter what it takes, because he can be. Despite all the voices telling him he can't, he can. Izuku just has to prove it.

    "Midoriya Izuku, four years old and already an anxious child, is waiting for his Quirk to come in. He’s been waiting for eight days, four hours and… thirty seven minutes. -- And then it came. It didn’t arrive in a flurry of sparks that stained the air with a sweet smell like Kaachan’s, or tear through a worksheet halfway through class like Shibata’s extendable fingers, or mean that he comes into school one day with big dragon wings like Tsubasa. Instead, Izuku wakes up on the twelfth day, and he isn’t human. "

    TLDR - Izuku has a kitsune Quirk and is determined to become an underground hero - he will makes lots of friends and a whole Yamazawa family along the way, although things are never quite easy.

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya's Quirk was...dangerous. Since the age of four he knew what true nightmares were made of. Demons were the soldiers of hell, and they made it their mission to terrify him for fun. Peeling skin, black sillouhettes, and grating screams that froze him in place where only a part of it. Their words and dark hymns followed him, crushing his body and soul.

    But not as much as his mother did. Inko was prone to using her fists and venomous words to beat him down, and she was worse than the demons who followed him day and night.

    "God does not shine upon you,"

    The demons repeated it like a mantra, and they were all right. God hated them all, the fallen wingless angels who he damned for eternity. He loathed Izuku too, the boy who could see them. Izuku was cursed with an uncontrollable Quirk, but he tamed those demons. They were his, and his alone.

    God sneered at him, and he smiled devilishly back. God had given the demons exactly what they needed...

    Izuku Midoriya. A King.

    Summary

    Midoriya’s quirk isn’t what anyone is expecting. That's not to say it’s bad, quite the opposite, it’s just that things are put in a different perspective when you regularly die. Midoriya still dreams of becoming a hero, and when he does- well no one was expecting this.

    Aizawa needs a vacation. All Might doesn’t know how to handle his suicidal successor.
    Bakugou is the only student that isn’t absolutely terrified of this cheerful yet surprisingly deadly hero in training.

    And Midoriya? Well, he’s a little bitch with no regard for personal safety, and someone decided to give him an enhanced strength quirk on top of it.

    AKA Midoriya has an immortality quirk and no one knows how to handle it, including Midoriya himself. Might as well fake it till he makes it. What’s the worst that can happen?

    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

    Imagine a world where your quirk determines your path and your worth. A world that has no place for a quirkless boy.

    Despite that, Izuku is determined to become a hero. Until he realizes no one will let him.

    So he accidentally creates a helpful (criminal) organization.

    And he (not so) accidentally steals One for All.

    May contain Izuku technically becoming a villain but still helping people, All Might running around like a headless chicken to find his stolen quirk, and All for One refusing to just go away.

    Summary

    There he was: sitting splay-legged on the altar, one muddy combat boot propped up on the edge, with a self-satisfied grin on his face and a relaxed aura, in spite of the war raging outside.

    Izuku wasn’t sure what he’d expected to see his first day evacuating humans from the Rapture zone, but it sure as hell wasn’t a Demon with the same goal.

    A story about falling, in more ways than one.

    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.

    Various members of 1-A are chilling in the common room of U.A. watching the news when a certain story pops up. The 1-A students say some very... Questionable things and Midoriya Izuku doesn't like it.

    He doesn't like it one bit.

    All Shinsou Hitoshi wanted was a snack, he swears it to the holy cat and coffee gods. But instead he gets a spiteful green bean and he can't say he regrets it.
