    Summary

    After a very bad day at school, Izuku makes a split-second decision to take matters into his own hands while waiting for his train. He feels like he's stuck in a tunnel of intrusive thoughts where there seems to be no light at the end—

    That is until he meets a strange man by the name of Aizawa Shota; a teacher who's like no other Izuku has ever met before. Caring and kind, someone who actually listens. Perhaps there is a light at the end of the tunnel after all?

    Maybe not all Heroes need a license to be a Hero.

    Summary

    “The world is a cruel place made crueler still by man.”
    ― Dathan Auerbach, Penpal

    The cruelness of humans can be so hidden in society that one may never witness unless you're at the bottom of that society or you personally seek to see it. Especially in a society where quirks decide your place from those with strong or amazing quirks who get to be admired and praised, those who get discriminated against for their quirks that are considered villainous, or those who were quirkless that endure countless humiliation and abuse for something they couldn't choose. What happens when those at the bottom decide they had enough. When faced with both sides of the story, who do you believe when realizing the harsh reality of society?

    (I'm bad at summarizing so sorry about that. It sounds bad.)

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku did not realise he’d been wearing rose-tinted glasses for most of his life until the day he finally took them off. It was only after their fight at Ground Beta that every illusion he had about his relationship with Bakugou Katsuki crumbled beneath his feet, leaving only the cold, harsh truth behind:

    Bakugou may have been his childhood friend first, but he was his bully for much longer.

    Naturally, everything changed after that. The nickname ‘Kacchan’ became a distant memory, just a reminder of everything that Bakugou had ever done to him, and Izuku was finally ready to move on. He even managed to convince himself that he didn’t care that Bakugou never apologised. That he was fine.

    And then he got hit by a quirk which bound him to Bakugou, and suddenly things got a whole lot more complicated.

    Summary

    "My name is Izudoriya. My deadname is Izuku Midoriya. I am the son of Inko and Hisashi Midoriya. I am a quirkless villain working for the Shie Hassaikai. My soulmate marks are on my right shoulder. They're a red book wrapped in duct tape and a gun with a pink popped balloon. I hate All-Might. I hate Bakugou Katsuki. I hate everything the two of them stand for." I looked up int he mirror at my reflection, taking in my new appearance. Black hair really suited me.

    "You alright in there?" I heard Chisaki Kai's voice ask me. I responded with a yes, placing my mask back over my face and opening the door.

    "Come on, we have work to do." I nodded and followed close behind him. Hopefully my little grounding exercise would help me get through another day.

    Summary

    Surface level fissures don’t show the deep caverns below. The thought occurs to him as he settles next to his student on the roof late that night. Of all his kids, Midoriya is the one he’d least expect to have an existential crisis at three am. Not impossible, just least expected. He’d missed the usual signs of deeper caves and caverns under tiny cracks and fissures, it was less than ideal, but it is what it is and he couldn’t change the past. Instead he needed to make sure these caverns wouldn’t turn to sink holes and fill them in as best he could and help heal the surface level damage afterwards

    Summary

    Ghouls went extinct decades ago. When humans developed quirks and ghouls didn't, it didn't take long for self-defense to turn deadly, and then for self-defense to become hunting parties. Ghouls nowadays were nothing more than a legend, a horrific footnote in the annals of history. At least, that's what's considered common knowledge. People like Midoriya Izuku know better. He knows better because, like his parents before him, he is a ghoul. A depressing existence sure, full of guilt and deception and constant fear, but at least he has his mother. Still, none of that will stop him from becoming a hero. Despite his nature, Midoriya has always wanted nothing more than to save the people he was born to kill. So he will fight tooth and nail to remain gentle and kind in the face of his long-time greatest enemy, his own instinct.

    Summary

    Attempting to regain some sense of normality after the war, the world slowly re-opens its doors. Izuku returns home a changed man, the embers of the war still haunting him, nightmares endlessly mocking him. He's far from who he used to be and for better or worse, you meet him halfway.

    Thus an unspoken agreement to lean on each other, an attempt to distract and heal. You both soon find out that it's impossible to put back together missing pieces with broken fingers.

    Katsuki hated secrets, the war didn't change that, it enhanced it. Finally getting over the abandonment, he refuses to the let the stupid nerd once again ruin himself by ruining you. As he slowly breaks down your defenses, he's quick to learn the way you too so highly hate so many parts of yourself. So he butts in. He barges where he's not asked for and unbeknownst to him, proves why he's the hero you've always looked up to.
