  3. Summary

    The Road I’m Walking

    Have you ever taken a step forward
    Only for the world to turn dark?
    For the lights to turn off
    And the doors to all lock shut?
    And yet you keep moving forward
    One step at a time
    Bare feet stepping over dirt, grass, and stone
    And the wind blowing against your face
    And your only company the stars
    The world seems to move slowly
    The silence is always present
    And something seems to be following from behind.
    You ask, where did they go?
    The lights of lanterns, candles, and flashlights
    The sun sets and doesn’t rise again
    And you’re alone once more.
    The constant chatter of the crowds
    Seems to disappear
    The color of flowers and streets
    Bleaches itself black and white.
    But you keep walking forward
    And never stop
    For even in the dark
    There is still a road.
    ...
    In which Inko is sick, Izuku is an information broker, Shouto is his body guard, and nothing is okay.

    Summary

    Izuku must learn his place in a broken and cruel world. He must learn the cost of being a hero. He must learn the cost of changing the world to his own image. In a world divided by factions vying for control, oppressive governments, and sympathetic villains, Izuku must decide his place amongst the chess pieces. He'll have to decide what to make of the broken dreams and shattered faith of an indifferent world. He'll need power to do it and rise above the mire and muck of despair.

    Thankfully, he was never quirkless.

    Sometimes quirks hide until they are triggered. Izuku tasted death and found it lacking, every flavour bitter and lacking spice. In the moments between death and life, he gazed into the howling abyss and it followed him home. Everything he thought he knew about the world is a lie. There are monsters lurking in the dark below, always waiting and always watching.

    They wait patiently, waiting for one to sit upon a throne of crystal madness and eternal suffering. They have waited for aeons and will wait until the end of eternity.

    They wait for Izuku Midoriya.

    Summary

    This was formerly titled ‘Sōkoku Playlist Fic’ but it has finally earned its real name. Yes it took 21/24 chapters and 90,000+ words for me to go “oh I should acknowledge this isn’t a crack fic and give it a real title”

    This entire thing is based off a playlist I made that’s inspired by them. If you thought I was in the Soukoku void before I’ve basically just disintegrated in there.

    Here’s the playlist link:

    https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgSt3qNlc3j-YA_l0Zn4LyArWjFjuPo3U

    It’s basically going to follow a timeline of their relationship with alternating points of view and lots of introspection. It’s been a lot of fun to write so I hope it’s even half as fun to read.
