    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?

    Summary

    When Shinsou learns that there's a couple looking to adopt him, he has no idea what to think. Having just been accepted to UA's General Studies Department, he already has his hands full planning on how to break through to the hero course—but it's not every day an offer like this comes along, either. Fifteen years old is old enough for Shinsou to have to plan his future after he ages out of the system, but it's not too old to have buried that part of him that looks at happy families in holiday specials and thinks, what if.

    Now, he has one weekend with the fosters to decide if he wants to stay with them long term. And they have one weekend to decide if they think he's worth the effort.

    Summary

    "Come in," he says, shuffling the paperwork from his previous session together and opening a drawer designated for this purpose to place them in. Midoriya slowly pushes the door open before slipping through on silent feet, head tilted down a little more than usual as he closes it behind him and hesitantly settles in the chair across from his desk, backpack placed in his lap. "Did you bring the paperwork?" He asks when Midoriya says nothing in the way of a greeting.

    He gets a blank stare from his student. "Paperwork?"

    "Yes," Shouta nods, pausing to examine his student. His eyebrows are furrowed slightly, confusion mixed with alarm swirling in his eyes. He grips his backpack a little tighter, gnarled fingers digging into the fabric as he lifts it higher, covering all of his stomach and more of his chest.

    The gesture screams defensive, fueled from a source of fear. His student is scared. It strikes Shouta very suddenly that he doesn't think he's seen Midoriya seem any semblance of relaxed around him or any of the other teachers. Something uneasy twists in his gut.

    Summary

    There’s a conversation, after Kamino. Shouta realizes there’s more to Midoriya’s supposed heroic spirit than just a kid out to help people, and that he’s been letting a child destroy himself for months.

    Midoriya doesn’t see it that way, and they have words.

    Summary

    Sir Nighteye doesn't think Izuku has what it takes to be a hero. He especially doesn't think Izuku should have been chosen to wield One For All. That's okay! Really! It is! It's hardly the first time Izuku has had people trying to stop him. He'll be fine. He can handle this.
    Tsuyu and Ochako think differently. They watch his stress levels rise and his self-confidence fall, and they don't like what they're seeing.
    Perhaps, it's time for an intervention.
