    Summary

    Fear clambers into his mouth and tastes bitter on his tongue. “Who are you?” It takes him a moment to register the sound of his own voice.

    She stares at him. Blinks. “Lance, please, this isn’t time for one of your jokes--”

    He furrows his eyebrows and struggles to sit up, to stop leaning into the cradle of her arms. “I’m not--I’m not...joking.”

    After sacrificing himself to save Allura, Lance wakes up in a strange new world where the only thing he knows is a deep connection to a boy he doesn't remember.

    Summary

    "Terrible news," Ed says into the mattress. He feels Al sit up straighter.

    "What, what happened?"

    "I still don't know if I had a crush on Ling at sixteen, but I think I got a crush on him now," Ed whines. Al laughs in delight and pats his shoulder sympathetically. "Al, it was horrible. He asked me about, you know, my life and I was like Uhhh and he was like Sounds like you do absolutely no introspection, idiot. Also you need to obsess over things to live. Absolutely unbelievable."

    "Wow," Al says. "Did he really say that? That's a little harsh."

    "No," Ed admits. "He said it sounded like I hadn't figured out how to want things for myself and that it was okay to do that. Well, he did basically say the thing about obsessing over stuff. And here I am!!"

    "Wow," Al says again.

    "I know," Ed says. "Devastating."

    --

    Seven years after the Promised Day, Ed finally gets around to visiting Emperor Yao.

    Full of good characterisation and witty turns of phrase. And the plot is interesting too! What more could you ask for?

    Summary

    Hitoshi isn’t sure how he feels about moving. But he hopes that maybe, just maybe, people won’t talk about how he has a “villain’s” quirk. At the very least, it seems like he’s making friends with the odd boy who lives right next door to him now.

    (Or, AU where the Shinsous move next door to the Midoriyas)

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya used to want to be a hero. It seems a distant dream, now, after everything that he's done—after everything that he's been made to do. But it's still there. It's a dim, flickering flame, burning lower by the day.

    He doesn't have time to concern himself with that though, these days he's too focused on staying alive to think too much about what he can never have.

    Then All Might takes a job teaching at UA, and the universe says hey you know what would be fun? What if we fucked Izuku over even more than we already have? and thus, Izuku ends up in the General Education class of UA with strict instructions to report everything he can, because, thank fucking no one, he just can't catch a goddamn break.

    AKA Hisashi Midoriya is a member of one of the most notorious underground supervillain organizations, and Izuku is being forced to help them (even though, trust him, he'd really rather not). Too bad that they don't predict that Izuku's going to get adopted by half the faculty when they send him to spy on the prestigious hero academy.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love AUs and this one gets it just right. With good levels of pacing, plot and characterisation. It offers a very believable (not quite)villian!Midoriya.
