    Summary

    When you're a Quirkless orphan on the streets, you have to fight twice as hard for just about everything. Survival. Respect. Allies. Most of the time, you're just barely scraping by. And, for that matter, so is everyone else around you.

    So Izuku does what he does best: he helps. Sometimes that means mediating gang disputes; other times, it's something as simple as grocery shopping. It's not like anyone else will, after all.

    With so many hopes riding on him, there's only ever been one option. Quirk or no Quirk, UA or no UA—he's going to become a hero.

    Summary

    The Omega Keys revive Cybertron, and the battlefront of the Autobot-Decepticon War moves back to the homeworld. Troops of both sides roaming the galaxy start to return, and the war goes on. But after eons and eons of seemingly meaningless battles over the devastated Cybertron and energon scraps everyone is feeling tired and bitter, and the will to fight is at all-time low. This is the perfect time to dig up some old traditions and laws and push the guilt and responsibility on the shoulders of those who started it all, thus allowing the rest to move on towards the dream of a peaceful future.

    But getting rid of the consequences and burdens of the past is a long, painful process, far from happy and even further from the end, and no scapegoat is strong enough to carry away all the grief, loss and grudge of a people with a history of such oppression and cruel war.

    When Even pulls up to Isak's corner in the early hours of a dreary Thursday morning, neither of them can expect how similar their respective desires are, despite their vastly different social rankings.

    Summary

    A world where the Avatar has disappeared from memory. Where Sozin’s Conquest was successful and power is wielded through the political maneuvering of the former nations. Where the unsteady order of the empire is threatened as members of the royal family are picked off one by one and lines are slowly drawn in the sand.

    One last effort for peace forges an unlikely alliance between opposing factions. A hardened young waterbender is torn from home and forced to join a team of elite fighters, including a carefree Air Nomad, a runaway Earth Kingdom heiress, and the inscrutable son of the Fire Lord himself. Together, they must learn to overcome their differences and unite, or risk losing all in the war to come.

    But loyalty is complicated, and love even more so.

    OR:

    The avatar has four heads.

    Summary

    It’s as if he’s inhaling a breath of snow and ashes—a shock and choke in his throat, strangely reminiscent of the day he realized that the birthmark blooming on his shoulder was identical to the drawings on his childhood friend’s desk.

    Now, twelve years later, it only confirms Izuku’s impending doubts that, yes, he is now legally claimed by Katsuki Bakugou.

    Summary

    Luna Lovegood browses a Daily Prophet article explaining in detail how Tom Riddle did nothing wrong and how Harry Potter is a pureblood supremacist fascist. Surely, they’ll make perfectly sound arguments which have some basis in reality. Obvious satire is obvious. And one shot.

    Summary

    This is what society seems to agree on:

    Alpha's are powerful, Beta's are neutral, and Omegas are submissive. It's simply nature. Anyone who tries to go against it is ridiculed for not following the rules of the world.

    Bakugou Katsuki says fuck that! He's about to show this shitty world why they can't fit him into their perfect plan.
