    Summary

    It had been years since Shouta Aizawa had seen his sister - his life led him a different path and he couldn't bare looking back.
    She had never resented him for it, she smiled and wished him well at every prayer. Shouta had known she'd married a man he had no respect for - Hisashi Midoriya struck him as bad news - but that was as much as he knew.
    So, when he found out his dear sister had passed, he thought his responsibility was as far as planning her funeral; not becoming the guardian of her child.

    (Or: Kid Izuku is cute and Unkie Shouta doesn't know how to raise a Child)

    Summary

    How is Eri able to forgive him, to look at him like he’s a hero, when he failed her so badly for so long? If he had been stronger, faster, better with his quirk, he would have been able to get her out of their faster, save her right when she first ran into him instead of so much later. Sir Nighteye was right about him not deserving—

    Problem Child? comes Aizawa-sensei’s voice. He sounds tired and a bit irritated, as always, but beneath that there’s a layer of sheer incredulity.

    Problem Child? his voice comes again. This time Izuku finally recognizes where it’s coming from— his own head. He can feel a sharp, painful jolt of panic physically stabbing through his chest, and he can’t help but bite back an emphatic shit.

    Or: While visiting Eri at the hospital following her rescue from the Shie Hassaikai, Izuku and Aizawa-sensei both run into a nurse with a telepathy based quirk, and Izuku finds himself in a telepathic bond with his teacher. This is... somewhat worrying, considering how many secrets Izuku needs to keep.

    CW for each individual chapter will be in the end notes.

    Summary

    Murphy was a coward, but he was never this evil.
    Hatred and probably whatever ran in his blood had turned him into something inhuman.
    At least, that was the only way 10k could rationalize what was happening to him.

    Season 3 canon divergence: events in Murphytown leave 10k more tormented than ever. His experiences with losing all control of his body manifest in cruel ways.
    Will Warren and the others be able to protect him? And if they do, what damage will 10k have to recover from?
