    Bookmarker's Notes

    Utterly brilliant. Izuku, even by the end, is never actually in a healthy headspace but his coping mechanism hits. There's a very strong feeling throughout that his very unhealthy methods are the only thing standing between him and something much worse. The variation in his approaches as well as the reactions are amazing. The third story, though, took it from great to amazing. The addressing of Izuku's(very justified) trust issues is done startlingly well.

    The people who support him are all wonderfully varied - the build of Aizawa being so very in his comer (I love Dadzawa, but usually it's way too instant to be at all realistic. Here, he cares like a regular amount at the start and it builds from there), Uruaka's cheery friendship and lack of judgement, Shinsou being a kindred spirit in some ways, Iida being more impressed by his accomplishments than swayed by his prejudice, Majima being an unexpected fave because he's just like - yes of course I will, this is my literal profession and I am outraged professionally as well as personally about it - and it's unexpected but great, and! My absolute fave is the adorable lesbian couple he saves who from the start see him as a hero.

    Also, though, the sheer variety in the people against him and their reasons! The fact that even some people who honestly believe in him have other priorities! How people change their minds, and forget, and generally are just people!

    Plus the ending is satisfying, without drawing things out or cutting things off. Midoriya Izuku will become a hero, and we get to see the first couple chapters of that, essentially. Works out very nicely. (Also lovely length with good pacing which is always appreciated)

    Summary

    When Cody awoke, his General was sitting next to his bed, body still and stare distant. He was thinking, planning, readying. It was a look generally reserved for when Skywalker or Tano were going to need defending in the Council. Insofar as he could recall, they'd been good.

    That meant a disaster was coming down the line, and when Kenobi got to it, it would not be pretty for whoever was on the other side.
