    Shouta Aizawa had given up on finding his friend Y/N L/N years ago. When she had lost everything including her hero license after a fatal mistake, she just disappeared. It has taken Shouta a long time to come to terms with this, but now he has to face the ghosts of the past when Tsukauchi requests his help in a case that's eerily similar to back then...

    Aizawa x Reader, kind of dark, very depressing, murder and stuff, with many flashbacks. Some smut, but not a lot of it.

    Summary

    You spent five years studying until you became a real doctor at the age of twenty three. Today was the day you were going to fulfill the promise you made to yourself. When you entered the city you were taken aback by how large it was. The entire city was illuminated and it was almost beautiful in its own way. The magnificence of the city was short-lived when you saw the number of impoverished people. It was difficult to walk without bumping into someone. You walked through the streets although you didn’t know where you were going. You looked to the side seeing a homeless woman sitting on the ground with her two children sitting next to her. You weren’t prepared for how the city was going to break your heart. For a while, it was a wonder and mystery. Now, it was a tragic reality.

    (You are a wealthy woman who became a doctor to help the people living in the Underground. You meet Levi and Furlan when they steal from you and you hire them to protect you. While living with them you become Furlan's lover and Levi takes an interest in you as well. After Furlan and Isabel die you are left with Levi and your child in an unforgiving world.)

    Summary

    ~Warm blood trickled down her shoulder while shielding him. There were spots onto the ground. Head hanging low from the recoil of agony, she didn't stumble. Just gritted her teeth to bear the pain.

    The man froze. His eyes widened the slightest bit. "Well that was a stupid idea."~

    Satoko Takashi is a 20 year old woman, who happens to be quirkless. Living in poverty and on dangerous streets, she was abandoned as a young child. As if it were fate, she came across Dabi, whom she shielded from danger.

    One thing’s for sure, Dabi is persistent to get her to join the League of Villains. But Satoko has something about her.
    She has a deep hatred for heroes and villains.
    You may look at Satoko as Y/N to put yourself in her shoes. We do our best to try to portray each character as they should like in the manga. If this story becomes popular enough, maybe, just MAYBE I might make it into a comic.

    Updates: I'll try to daily!

    Summary

    Ajax "Jax" Radziewicz has been floating through life, not really conscious of where he was going or what he was doing. For a long time, being alive and mostly free was enough for him. All it took was one look in the mirror and it all came crashing down around him. Throwing himself headfirst into the roiling, growing dark mass of turmoil he'd been nurturing inside of him since he was eight years old, Jax finds himself overwhelmed and unable to process any of it. In an attempt to return to the peaceful oblivion he'd grown used to, he attempts suicide, only to fail. Now left to pick up what's left of himself and try to figure out where to go from here, if it's even worth it to go anywhere from here, the high school he attends assigns him one of his fellow students as something of a therapist.

    But Jax has never been a talker. He's been an action man since the start. And the only way he can get the truth out is over time, by recording it on his phone. Find here the recordings detailing Jax's gradual recovery from his lowest of lows.

    Summary

    Born into poverty and driven into a corner as just a child, Itadori Yuuji, 8 years old, jumps at the chance when a kind stranger stretches out a helping hand and offers to save his life. Even as a child, he wasn’t ignorant of the blood that lingered under the kind stranger’s fingernails, but Itadori chose to ignore it. Besides, he didn’t care if his saviour was a good person or not, he was just happy to be alive. Because wasn’t that what his Grandad had always told him?
    “Only care about yourself. No one else matters. There’s no such thing as a proper death.”

    ——

    “I’m glad you remember my name.” Itadori replied, a wicked grin stretching across his lips, his smile pulling at the heavy tattoos that crawled across his cheeks.

    He hadn’t had those tattoos when Fushiguro had seen him last.

    “I thought you died.” Fushiguro said, wincing at the crack in his voice.

    “Sorry man, didn't mean to deceive you. S’all just part of the plan.” Itadori shrugged. “A bit like how, now, I have to kill you.”
