    Summary

    At five, Mikumo plotted, planned, and schemed, and decided their father stood on thin fucking ice. Other men might be worried, but Father only looked at their ruthlessness, cunning, and ambition with unbridled pride and joy swimming in his crimson eyes, offering a sharp, gleeful smile and praising their blatant unyielding nature.

    “You’re going to be a vicious little thing, aren’t you, sweetheart? Nothing and no one will dare to stand in your way.”

    He wasn’t wrong, the disturbing experience of witnessing him cooing over them for it notwithstanding.

    ___

    A non-binary person from another dimension is reincarnated as Akatani “Yamikumo” Mikumo, who’s apparently a biological child of the infamous supervillain All For One in at least one timeline. Of course, as soon as they regain their memories, they immediately start scheming to carry out their own agendas. At least between Father and being a Slytherin, they came by it all honestly.

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya is not alone. In fact, he hasn’t been alone for over ten years – he just doesn’t know yet. And how could he? Humans are as good as blind to the likes of demons, after all.

    Summary

    In canon, Izuku turned out to be quirkless, despite both his parents having quirks: one that attracts small objects and one that breathes fire. There are so many ways for these quirks to have combined into what could've been Izuku's, and so many of these potential combinations can be seen across the multiverse. In this specific one, however, Izuku Midoriya is born with a star in his stomach and plasma coursing through his veins…That's sure to affect a few things in his life, for better and for worse.

    A healthy dose of the butterfly effect, plenty of quirk theory and analysis, unconventional relationships and dilemmas, a revamped curriculum and more await Izuku and the others, in a world that seems so similar yet so different once you look closer.

    Summary

    Shang Qinghua goes to take a self-indulgent peek at his baby protagonist son and gets a kick to the shrivelled heart for his troubles. He gave up on changing the story years ago! Yet he finds himself helping his protagonist son's adoptive mother anyway. Just this one change won't matter too much, right?

With the changes to the world cascading around him, with his position as a traitor pulling him between his sect and a certain ice demon, and with the protagonist growing up so quickly, how is one displaced author meant to ensure that everything turns out all right?

    A Pre-Canon to Canon Divergence story.

    Summary

    Kingdoms rise and fall for the want of a nail. Uchiha Madara desperately wants Konoha to be part of his World Omelet of Peace – and has to crack a few eggs to make it, like a six year old nail named Inuzuka Tsume. Shimura Danzo doesn’t want a kingdom of his own – he wants the village for which he sacrifices everything to thrive. Tsume just wants to be wanted, and finds herself collecting a kingdom of strays, from a newborn Kakashi abandoned at birth by his mother, to a naked 3 year old Naruto seeking refuge in Tsume’s dog kennels in the dead of winter, and a cranky old man named Danzo.

    (Madara started it. Tsume regrets nothing, even if her taste is questionable. Danzo regrets himself into becoming a decent human being. Well, somewhat decent.)
