    Summary

    The world of heroes had utterly failed Izuku Midoriya. So why not give the world of villains a try? Afterall, it couldn’t be worse than what Bakugo and All Might had done to him. Working for the League, he thinks it's what he wants, but is it?

    Despite being a villain, Midoriya still has a heart. But being a villain requires a person to be merciless and unfeeling. He pushes his moral limits further and further, to the point where he’s going against the very fiber of his being. Against the part of him that had once wanted to be a hero. How far is he willing to go?

    It’s a good thing the world is filled with much more caring people than Midoriya realizes.

    OR

    Midoriya’s a villain but he’s still good deep down, so Class 1-A (specifically Uraraka, Bakugo, Shinso and All Might) try to save him.

    Here’s this fic’s playlist. A song (or sometimes two) for each chapter.

    Summary

    Overhaul has been in charge of the underworld for longer than anyone would like to admit. The world is in disarray, and more and more people are losing their quirks. The heroes have started making deals with villains to get their quirks back, and Overhaul is more powerful than ever. So when an up-and-coming undercover cop, Midoriya Izuku, gets an opportunity to infiltrate the Shie Hassaikai, it seems like the only option.
    But what will he do when he finds what-- or who-- Overhaul is hiding?
    The backstory for this fic is kind of complicated, but don’t worry, it’s all explained in the first chapter :)

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku knew the world liked to use him and others deemed useless like a punching bag. It was the normal for his world.

    Didn't mean he was going to take it laying down. No, he was going to shove it down their throats if he had to.

    Show that he could be a hero. Show that the "useless" could be the "useful."

    Summary

    Laurence Barnes was known as the soldier Prophet.
    He knew when to fight and when to give up.
    And when to sacrifice.
    He sacrificed material.
    He sacrificed his men.
    He even sacrificed his life.
    But it did not end there.
    He returned thanks to the Nanosuit he wore, and took over a body of a man he once tried to save.

    When his war with the Aliens known as Ceph was over, he "retired", disappeared from the surface.
    Hunted down what was left of the Ceph.
    And stood guard, vigilant, just in case.

     

    But then...
    One day, quirks came to be and soon Prophet saw that humanity could survive without him, should the Ceph return.
    Prophet retired for good and switched identities whenever he was staying too long in one place or got in trouble.

    It's been decades, no, centuries since then, and Laurence Barnes works a menial, but satisfying job on Hawaii.

    Enter Izuku Midoriya, quirkless and currently 7 years old and on vacation with his mother.

     

    Izuku might be quirkless.
    But that doesn't mean he won't get in trouble.
    Trouble that Laurence isn't equipped to handle and that even Prophet has issues with.

    Summary

    “Do you ever get tired of it?” Touya asked. “Eating shit food out of dumpsters and bathing in public bathrooms?”

    “I do,” Izuku answered, honestly. “But I’m free this way.”

    “What if you could be free and have a roof over your head too?”

    Izuku gave him an amused look. “I can’t. I’m eight years old and, technically, don’t exist. It’s not as if I could get a job to pay rent.”

    “I could though,” Touya said, voice oddly strained as he made the offer. “If you wanted. To live like that, instead.”

    Wherein Izuku has All for One, uses it to help whoever he can, and stumbles across a family along the way.

    Summary

    Akatani "Yamikuno" Mikumo was a mercenary for hire, a man who did everything from assassinations to info brokering, and who seemed to know everything about everyone. He had a moral code and the spine to stick to it, and he had a hatred for the Shie Hassakai in particular.

    Midoriya Izuku was the owner of a cat cafe, Midoriya's Mews. He abandoned his old life after his mother died at eleven, and picked himself up after being homeless and on the run, adopting a little girl who he would burn the world for.

    Midoriya Eri was a little girl who was saved from a hopeless situation, and brings light to the cafe and her father. But her father was at the center of a very large spider web, and he was desperately trying to protect her from it.

    Summary

    "A small part of Izuku screamed at him to do something, to run forward and save him. If this had happened just a few hours ago, before Kacchan told him to jump off a roof, before All Might had told him to give up, before his dreams had been torn apart and thrown in his face, maybe he would have.

    Instead, he just watched."

     

    In which Toga finds Izuku’s analysis notebook and decides to make a new friend, Izuku is maybe a little bit sadistic, and Bakugo regrets all of his life choices.

    Summary

    Summary

    Izuku stood on the rooftop.

    It had been the site of his most vivid memory:

    “Toshinori⸻ no⸻ All Might,” Izuku gripped his backpack’s yellow straps tight, “even if I don’t have a quirk, can I become a hero?”

    Izuku remembered tired words:

    “The Symbol of Peace cannot be daunted by evil. Pros are always risking their lives. I cannot simply say, ‘You can be a hero even without power,'" ⸻ a twinge of sympathy.

    "If you want to help others, then you could also become a police officer. But you also have to consider what’s realistic, young man.”

    Izuku opened his eyes and sucked in a breath.

    Toshinori's eyes had flashed with surprise when Izuku had thrust him over the building’s ledge.

    It was from this very rooftop Izuku had thrown his idol.

    It was from this very rooftop Izuku felt One for All rush to his fingertips.

    Summary

    Izuku was tired. This, of course, was nothing new for him, but it was true nonetheless.

    He was tired of faking a smile for a world that didn’t care about him. He was tired of hiding burns and bruises so his mom wouldn’t worry any more than she already did. He was tired of the spider lilies and name-calling. He was tired of people thinking he wasn’t worth anything just because he was quirkless.

    But at least he had a mom who loved him and made the bad days just a bit more bearable!

    ---
    He already lived a life without a quirk and without friends, the world didn't need to go and take her too.

    Just how far is Izuku willing to go to see her again?

    Summary

    Reborn as Midoriya Izuku with memories of a prior life intact, this particular soul overrides genetics. Even with an extra toe joint, this Midoriya Izuku uncovers a somewhat subtle Quirk of their own. They have a Quirk, but they’re not saying a word. They’re functionally Quirkless for the most part, anyway.

    Until One For All is added to the equation, enabling their own Quirk to work on themself as well rather than only on others.

    In which Midoriya Izuku has a Quirk, and is maybe more bitter over being alive than being labeled Quirkless due to society being complete and utterly unobservant assholes.

    Summary

    Izuku never asked for this. He didn't want the quirk. He didn't want the reponsibility. He didn't want the abuse. He didn't want the people. He didn't want to live.
    He just wanted to die the first time. He wanted to get away from the world. Get away from his mom, the warehouse, his life.

    He got away from his mom. Eventually. But he can't die and going back to the warehouse is a regular occurrence. So what can he do?
    Become a vigilante of course. Introducing: Solaris.

    Summary

    The Sludge Villain doesn't find Bakugo after escaping All Might, but some other random civilian. There's no series of explosions to draw All Might to the scene of the second attack. It's by pure luck that Izuku stumbles upon them. And Izuku does what he always has when he sees one person hurting another: inserts himself between the aggressor and victim. He finds this is significantly harder to do when one of the parties is a sentient slime.

    Summary

    Despite his relatively short life as so far, Midoriya Izuku has experienced one horrible thing after the next. The forest. The mall. His school. All of these places hold memories – memories that threaten to send Izuku over the edge. And yet, he trudges on — pushing through every painstaking moment of his life with what little sparks of hope he has left.

    One would think someone so young to be safe from such things, but fate has never truly been kind to Izuku - and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon.

    But everyone has a breaking point.

    And sometimes, a whisper is all it takes to drown out the sounds of millions.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku, quirkless and an analyst, has wanted nothing more than to change the world for the better.

    Shinsou Hitoshi, a kid with a 'villain's' quirk, had wanted nothing more than to be a hero and prove everyone wrong.

    Their worlds collide in an alleyway outside a hero agency, and with that began the long road to both of their dreams being achieved.

    Though slow going, they'll one day discover that they bit off more than they could chew.
