    Summary

    This story ends with a press conference. It ends with a proclamation, a declaration, a cry of I am here! It ends with a beginning— the genesis of the legend that is Deku.

     

    It begins very differently. It begins with a whisper, the scream of a newborn. It begins with too-old eyes and the haunted dreams of a child.

     

    It begins with a resurrection.

    Summary

    The world is an unfair place.

    You flip a coin, and when you need heads, it will give you tails. You cross the street, and you get hit by a car, because you forgot to look both ways. You get beaten down by your peers for things out of your control, sneered at and jeered at, because you don't fit their expectations. The world is unfair to you, and if it were fair in just one thing, it would be in the fact that it is unfair to all.

    Midoriya Izuku knows what it's like to live in this unfair world. The cracks in the pavement where fortune falls down, the drainage pipes in which keys and rings are lost; he does his best to find the nooks and crannies that will give him an advantage, but he still suffers with the rest of us. His only friends are far away, and his relationship with his mother is in danger. He could once call amazing heroes his family, but they left him behind. He has been falsely diagnosed as quirkless, and with that declaration comes most of the misfortune that is his existence... yet he is determined to beat the odds anyways, and he has the entire rest of his life to do so.

    The world is an unfair place, but Midoriya Izuku is ready for the challenge.

    Summary

    1987, Natasha Romanov is on... holiday and she meets Tony Stark at MIT. Enough said.

    OR,

     

    He’s sitting on a creased leather couch like it’s a throne and he’s a king.

    He’s a dried out, cynical husk even at seventeen, she can see it in his eyes, the way the guys around him are clustered like vultures, like disciples, in a strange way. They’re all clutching red solo cups filled with piss-beer, and there’s a matching, hungry look in their eyes.

    He looks casual, on the other hand. He’s bored, leaning back. While the others laugh and make jokes, he just watches the cigarette smoke drift up from his hand.
