    Summary

    Izuku inherited his parents’ quirks, but he swore he’d never use his fire.

    He knows first hand how—bright, burning, scorching, painful, terrifying, destructive—it is, after all, and Izuku promised (promised his crying mother, promised his burning self, promised the laughing memory of his father) that he’d become a hero who stops that kind of despair.

    Even if he has to burn his own wings to do so.

    But when someone with the exact same problems, fears, and pain shows up... Izuku can't help but try to heal them. And in doing so, he himself may be healed too.

    Summary

    There were many things in Izuku's life that had created the insecurities he kept inside: the years of bullying, his father's last harsh words to him, the guilt he felt over All Might's retirement, the scorn of the man's former sidekick that Izuku was working for. It was a mixture of things that eventually led to his own downfall and let the good doctor get into his head.

    Izuku Midoriya never makes it to his internship one morning. Nighteye brushes it off, thinking he's chickened out of coming to work, until he gets a worried call from the boy's mother saying he never came home. And then Mirio receives a package with a pill inside.
    Izuku Midoriya disappears and One For All is passed on. Mirai only truly realizes the grave miscalculation he's made when he sees Toshinori buckled over, crying for his boy, a boy who was so much more than just his successor.

    Their grief is shattered with the realization that Izuku Midoriya is not only alive and not well, but a villain; one that is rather comfortable where he is, because the League of Villains seems rather attached to him.

    (Izuku's descent into villainy, his crawl up into vigilantism, and his eventual push back into being a true hero.)

    Summary

    Izuku realizes early on he has no friends. That doesn't mean, however, that he can't make any. The friends he makes are just a little bit...unconventional. They also steal too many random things- some of them of the sharp and dangerous variety. But it's not as weird as people seem to think it is.

    Something not of the world the people around him know bends around Izuku as he walks along his path to becoming the hero he's always wanted. Sometimes, other people get a glimpse.

    (Izuku is a witch, Hitoshi is his best friend, and their four parental units hear them say they do things with magic for years before believing it.)
