    Summary

    Aizawa Shouta knew, fundamentally, that his quirk could be useful when it came to helping others; however, after his parents died and a few, unsuccessful jaunts around the foster-care system later, he comes to realise that the world of heroes isn’t for him.

    Because heroes only showed up some of the time; then, if you were lucky, they’d rush onto the scene, seek their glory in defeating villains and then vanish behind a screen of adoring-fans, TV cameras and fame… leaving the ordinary people behind to sift through the fragments of their broken lives themselves.

    No one had saved him from the ruthless reality of being an orphan too old and too damaged to be adopted and no one gave a damn about the shady area ensconcing the care-centre he was raised in either, and so, he decides to give a damn.

    What follows are the tales of Café Owner Aizawa who hasn’t adopted several kids, intimidated the local gangs, scared off the pimps and caused multiple villains and heroes to catch feels for him, no sir; he just serves drinks, provides decent food and helps struggling students with their homework.

    It’d be irrational to think otherwise…

    Summary

    To anyone who met Izuku Midoriya in public, he was an anxious but ambitious child who has an unattainable dream.

    But to the people in the shadows, the misfits and outcasts, the people who toe the thin grey line between the two worlds that society has made, he’s Sparrow, a vicious informant who will give you all the deepest details on whoever you pay him to get information on. He tracks down criminals and scares them into the hands of the law, yet turns around and gives information to someone who has commited multiple felonies in the past week.

    Shota Aizawa has mixed feelings about the bird: He’s put away the most elusive criminals, solved cases the entire prefecture was stuck on, but gave away secrets, secrets that most heroes swore on their careers (read: lives) would never escape the walls of a meeting room. Also, the little bastard is too snarky for his liking.

    And yet as the bird flies, a flock follows.

    Or: Another fic where Izu is a snarky informant, but this time, he’s bird themed.

    Summary

    In 1867, Tony Stark flees New York after refusing to marry the alpha his parents chose for him. His money runs out in the small kingdom of Dacia, ruled over by King Steven of the Rogers line. Somehow, and he’s not entirely sure how, he ends up accepting the position of nanny to the king’s four children: Harley, Peter, Sarah, and Morgan.

    Tony bonds with the children easily but their father is harder to get to know. Steve is still grieving his wife’s death four years earlier. His continued mourning has turned the once bright halls into dark and somber shadows of their former glory. Tony isn’t entirely certain what he can do but he knows that he has to do something or else the whole country, so attuned to their leader, will sink into despair. He begins by reconciling the king with his young children.

    Meanwhile, the children have decided that it’s high time their father fall in love again—and Tony is the obvious choice. They concoct elaborate plans to force the two together, hardly realizing that Steve and Tony are falling in love, not through their shenanigans but through the quiet moments they share bonding over the love they have for the children.

    Summary

    “Wei Wuxian is the son of two rogue cultivators who recently died on a night-hunt,” his mother explained. “We are taking him in as a favor to a friend.”

    At least it wasn’t another surprise half-sibling.

    It did not take long for Jin Zixuan to reconsider. Wei Wuxian was a gremlin, brought to Koi Tower for the sole purpose of driving Jin Zixuan into insanity.
