    Summary

    A decade ago, his father walked out the door.

    A decade ago, he started a whole new chapter in his life.

    A decade ago, he stopped celebrating Father's Day.

    Now, a decade later, Izuku learns that there's more father figures than just the one that left him.

    ***

    Izuku hates Father's Day, and this year it marked the anniversary of a decade long disappearance. He would have been fine to lock himself in his room and sulk alone, but his classmates didn't let that happen. Maybe this Father's Day could mark a completely new (and good) thing, and it could be something to celebrate again.

    Summary

    Sometimes Izuku wakes up from a dream where his feet are pounding against the sidewalk and his heart is doing a step dance in his chest and he’s pushing, sprinting, desperate to get out, to get away, to get somewhere safe but there is nowhere safe because there never has been and-

    Sometimes Izuku wakes up at three, four, five in the morning and needs to press himself in the back of his closet so he can shut his eyes and feel safe.

    .

    "You- you do know that right?" Iida asks, because he has to. "You know that if we knew you were being mistreated, our whole class would step in if you needed us?"

    Midoriya doesn't turn around. But his head drops, then rises slightly. A nod.

    or, Midoriya learns to trust and lean on his class and teachers after almost a decade's worth of mistreatment

    Summary

    The dorms were loud this evening.

    The dorms were loud, but Izuku was quiet because he had to be. If he stayed quiet, if he left everyone else alone, then they could continue to bake, plan, and talk without disruption.

    And the last thing he ever wanted was to be a burden.

    Summary

    Kintsugi: The Japanese art form of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with gold. It represents the idea that broken doesn't mean unfixable. That even something shattered can be made into a stronger, more beautiful piece of art.

    Izuku knows that life will always be unfair to people like him. He knows that he can't bring his mother back from the dead or make his father love him. He knows he's destined for a life of loneliness and pain. Knows that his goal to be a quirkless hero is nearly impossible.

    Izuku knows that he's broken.

    But can the people that come into his life help put him back together?
    Will Izuku let them?
