    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

    After a run-in with a villain with a de-aging quirk, number one hero and Symbol of Peace, Midoriya "Deku" Izuku finds himself 14-years-old again, with memories only of a time before he had ever met All Might, before his life had changed forever.

    As he slowly returns to his proper age over the course of the next two weeks, Izuku rediscovers parts of himself he never knew he'd lost, has a couple of conversations long overdue, and causes hell for his friends and family alike with his lack of self-preservation instincts.

    Summary

    Izuku is five years old the first time he's saved by heroes. He's an instant fan of the woman in pink with her cheerful smile and the man with his ice powers and fine-boned features, even if they both refuse to tell him their names.

    For most of his life, Izuku has been the centre of villain attacks, but he has never been injured. Every time, he's saved by bright, unknown heroes—heroes who smile at Izuku, and ruffle his hair or ply him with hugs, and seem mesmerised by how small he is.

    Heroes that the rest of the world doesn't believe exists.

    Summary

    'Midoriya: UR SO CUTE

    Shouto chokes on nothing. How is he supposed to respond to that? Is he supposed to respond at all?

    Midoriya: Look at your big head aaaaaaaaaaaaah
    Midoriya: *Image Attached*

    Oh, Shouto thinks. He was talking about Shouto's Nitotan, which is now smashed to one of Izuku's cheeks in the image Izuku just sent, as Izuku squeezes it joyfully. Even if Izuku wasn't talking to him directly, the butterflies in Shouto's stomach feel a bit joyful, too.

    He types out: I wish I were that Nitotan right now. Then he snorts, and erases it.'

    --

    Izuku has a wide variety of special moves, but his Key Smash might be the most powerful of all.
