  1. Summary

    Edwin Jenner is a broken man, the world saw to that with the death of his daughter. With the end of the world and the death of his wife, he has nothing but a promise he made a dying woman to keep him dragging his feet one step in front of the other.

    Enter an orphaned girl, suffering selective mutism from the trauma of watching her mother die. Edwin doesn't want to be alive, and he can't see why she would either, but the bond of grief brings them together, and gives them something to hold onto. One way or another, he'll give his all to give her a life worth living.

    Summary

    The light is golden where it shines on the glossy surface of the ridiculous collection of amateur pottery that decorates his study. The memories they bring are always sharp and sweet, like the smell of tsubaki.

    Enji wonders often where his life would’ve been without Inko.

    Before he became Endeavor, Todoroki Enji met Inko by chance. It changes everything.

    Summary

    Verena isn’t enamored with her boring retail job, but hey, it pays the bills, and she’s content enough when she comes home and hangs out with her cat at the end of the day. But then she has to save said cat from getting eaten, and suddenly there’s an army general standing in her kitchen and talking about werewolves, government secrets and other dimensions, and her life takes a very interesting turn.

    Before she knows it, she’s busy researching trans-dimensional physics, dealing with elite soldiers who act like high schoolers, threatening to smack her smartass boss upside the head, stress-baking every baked good in existence and avoiding a menacing ranger with anger issues who stalks the hallways – and that’s just the beginning.

    Summary

    Izuku only had one person tell him he could be a hero his whole life, and he doesn’t blame Shouta for lying. He thinks he would too - but now he has someone to believe in him, the number one hero, the one person in the world who can gift his quirk to Izuku.

    Shouta’s always been protective, but it only magnifies tenfold after he gets a quirk - now if only the quirk would cooperate, and Shouta would tell him what he really knows about quirks - and their father too.

     

    Shouta's always tried to do right by his brother, and after their father's death at the hands of All For One, it's been harder and harder to tell Izuku he can be a hero even without a quirk.

    So when Izuku destroys the zero pointer with a quirk he certainly hadn't had yesterday, what's he supposed to think?

    If only life would stop throwing him curveballs at every opportunity. Between his brother, a purple-haired kid that reminds him of himself, and a little girl with no family to care for her, Shouta has his hands full.

     

    Or, Izuku tries to navigate a quirk (or seven), Shouta tries to navigate family, and everyone else just tries not to think too hard about how none of this makes sense.

    Summary

    All Might is dead, and Izuku Midoriya has received One For All two months early, the only training he has with the Quirk being All Might's order for him to find Gran Torino.

    And the situation is only further complicated when Kacchan breaks into his apartment with All Might, alive, later that night.

    Turns out, one interdimensional warp Quirk managed to pull six different One For All users into the dimension Izuku calls home. And while he can celebrate the fact that he has six new mentors who have experience with the Quirk, there's also the looming issue of the target All For One has placed on Izuku's back, and the fact that all six of the other users need to get home eventually.

    (Or: Into The Spider-verse, but make it My Hero Academia.)
