Two Sides of the Same Coin

Chapter Text

Aizawa only regrets one thing. It happened two years ago, he met the vigilante called “Bunny”. Named for the fact he jumped a lot and his jacket had things sticking up that looked like a rabbit’s ears.

 

 The pro-hero remembered how he was on patrol. He and another hero came across a thug ring and they went to work. They discovered the thugs carried what is now known as trigger. Aizawa had just turned the thugs over and spotted a cat. The small feline was adorable, but obviously a young kitten. Aizawa merely wanted to raise the kitten but upon stepping closer, the kitten skittered off.

 

Aizawa was lead into an alleyway, to which he found the vigilante slumped over, bleeding. “Oi, can you stand.” He asked the figure, who looked up at him. “Don’t worry about me, go do your job hero ” The small man said, but Aizawa realized. ‘This is a kid’. Aizawa had no idea how to react for moment, and in that moment someone else came out of the alley. The man chuckled and went to stab the underground hero in the eye, but the vigilante kicked the man’s arm, Aizawa hearing a crack from the movement. He saw the vigilante grimace and put weight onto the other side of his body. Aizawa realized the boy was stabbed in the leg, but sliced in the abdomen.

 

Aizawa quickly apprehended the attacker, but as he turned around to grab the kid with is scarf; they were gone.

Now it was today, attack of the USJ. Aizawa sighed, trying to keep his breathing steadied. He was bleeding out and one of his students; or was it?, had brought him to the front of the stairs.  Present Mic had just released a screech, halting any villains from going up the stairs. All of his students were at the door, just behind him. Aizawa sat up slightly, clutching his capture weapon around his torso to stop the bleeding. When he looked down, he saw green eyes, brightly colored in a toxic manner. They were staring down the ‘Nomu’ and Shigaraki. In a flash, Bunny was at the end of the stairs to right behind the Nomu, which had a knife embedded in it’s brain. 

 

The blood splattered over the concrete, the Nomu letting out an inhuman shriek. Bunny flipped around the monster, eyes tracing its body as the knife was pulled around. The vigilante lept around, keeping out of the Nomu’s grasp and injuring it further. Shigiraki let out an angry scream, attempting to go attack the vigilante. In response Bunny launched a knife into the villains hand, right in a spot where it wouldn’t injure but it would hurt like a bitch. Shigaraki stood back, scratched his neck with the non bleeding hand and commanded Kurogiri to have them leave. Bunny had left a finishing blow on the Nomu, it now laying on the ground lifeless but surprisingly not surrounding in blood. Aizawa watched as the vigilante went into rubble and didn’t return.

 

The underground hero looked around and saw only 3 students faced injuries, Aizawa’s son Shinso had a blade wound not deep, but it was long, Bakugo had over used his quirk so his hands were slightly charred. But the last student, it was Tsuyu, her tongue was bleeding and had been in salt water. None were terrible injuries, but they were escorted to the hospital anyways. Shinso had been placed with Aizawa in an ambulance; Present Mic tagging along. The other ambulance housed Bakugo, Tsuyu and Midnight. The two teacher’s not part of the event were there for observing over the injured. Only Thirteen was alone, their injuries making EMTs swarm them trying to help, leaving no room for civilians.

 

At the hospital, Aizawa was made into a mummy.  His son watched him worriedly, but remained neutral in this ordeal. Recovery Girl had came in and healed his face and arms; but told Aizawa he needed more energy to be healed completed. He gladly accepted his eye drops before heading to bed. Aizawa sighed, gave into rest as a blanket was draped over him. 

-

He was tapped on the forearm, which woke him immediately. “Hi…. Eraser.” A timid voice said, Aizawa turned to it. There in a rolly chair sat Bunny. Aizawa’s eyes gaped, he wouldn’t expect the vigilante to visit him. “I uh.. W-wanted to give you information o-on the USJ villains.” Bunny stammered, using a gloved hand to prop a notebook in front of the injured man. Bunny gave a shaky smile, but said something that didn’t fit the expression “I’m sorry I couldn’t save you…” 

 

Aizawa stared for a moment, reading Bunny’s face. Aizawa then noticed something “Is… your mask broken?” Bunny turned his head “Yea one of your students attacked me when I picked you up to move you. I-it doesn’t hurt at all.” Bunny stammered out. “Who?” Aizawa decided to question. Bunny froze for a moment, but took the notebook and placed it on the bedside table. “Doesn’t matter, I should be going as I don’t want to be caught… Bye Eraser…” Bunny said and started to head towards the window. Aizawa tried sitting up but winced from moving his torso. “D-don’t move, you might hurt yourself Eraser-san.” Bunny stuttered, slightly twitching while opening the window with a gloved hand. Aizawa sighed, but he heard the door open just as Bunny perched himself on the window.

 

Present Mic walked in, Shinso standing right next to him. “OI!” Shinso shoutted, Bunny quickly lept out of the window just as Present Mic grabbed his hood, exposing dark curly hair. Aizawa sighed “Don’t try and go after him, it’s not worth it.” Present Mic pouted at his statement. “Do you know what floor you’re on?”  Shinso asked his bandaged arm swinging by his side. Aizawa eyed his son carefully “No?” he stated, sounding like a question. “Sho… You are in the hero only hospital, the underground hero floor is on the 25th story…” Aizawa gaped for a moment, “He is a vigilante, so he should be fine right?” Present Mic asked giving an awkward chuckle. Present Mic went to the open window and looked down. “Yo!” he yelled out the window, not using his quirk. 

 

Present Mic saw absolutely nothing. It was dark out so nobody blamed him for going to check the lobby. Once he returned “Did he do anything to you Sho? He is gone now at least.” Present Mic chirped upon entering. “No, he gave me information on the USJ villains. It’s in that notebook.” Aizawa replied motioning to the notebook on the nightstand. Present Mic pulled some gloves from his pockets and picked up the book.

 

Present Mic flipped through the pages and seemed amazed. “Holy… Who was that guy? Some info gatherer? He has really good notes, and his handwriting seems almost like a font.” Present Mic commented, turning the book toward Aizawa. Shinso looked over Aizawa’s shoulders and gaped, not expecting that amount of information in the small notebook. “H-how the hell… That’s a lot of information on some new villains.” Shinso stammered. Aizawa shook his head as much as he could, but remained silent. “Turn it over to the police” Aizawa sighed after thinking for a moment. Present Mic called over a detective, who gladly took the book in for analysis. After a few sleepless hours, the detective called in saying ‘There is absolutely no fingerprints or DNA on this. The writing seems like it was printed and there are no disturbances in it. It’s concerning how well the notes are written. Bunny knew what he was doing taking these notes, as if he has done this for 10 years. This skill is awesome and if we could we would hire Bunny right on the spot! He most likely has an intelligence quirk, and it is one that could rival Nezu!’

-

Aizawa was released from the hospital early the next morning. He sighed as a black car pulled around, clambering inside it. “Let me guess, Present Mic wouldn’t let you teach, so instead of calling him you called me to take you to work.” Tensei asked, holding a chuckle. Tenya gaped as he saw his mummy of a teacher inside the car. “S-Sensei! You shouldn’t teach when injured! You know how easily you could reopen a wound?!?” Tenya exasperated. Aizawa sighed, ignored his student and replied to Tensei. “Yep…. That brat.” Tensei gave a chuckle at the fact Aizawa called his best friend  (and lover) a brat. “He will never change, huh?” Tensei questioned, driving the car to UA.

 

Upon arrival, Aizawa immediately noticed one of his students. Bakugo was standing at the gate with a flower crown, gloves on his hands. In front of him was the press trying to get statements of the USJ attackees. Aizawa groaned, got out of the car and hobbled into the school, ignoring microphones shoved in his face. Bakugo and Iida soon followed suit, but Bakugo had slammed his flower crown into his bag. Upon actually making it into UA they were met by a few others of 1-A. “Wow, I wonder how the press caught wind of that so quickly! It was kind of scary having to shove through the press!” Uraraka exclaimed. 

 

From the corner of Aizawa’s eye, he saw Bakugo go back to the gate and drag someone in. Bright fluffy green and black curls covered the boy’s eyes. Nezu quickly ran to the pair, grabbed the curled boy and left. Aizawa quirked an eyebrow as Bakugo went to Kirishima and had a conversation. “Go to the classroom kids, school starts in 20 minutes.” Aizawa growled, looking for any trace of the mouse and child.

-

Nezu had a personal student. That student was ‘friends’ with someone from the hero course. And that ‘friend’ had just dragged his student in the clear view of everyone. And of course his student wasn’t wearing his UA uniform. No, of course not because as soon as he left his house the boy got in trouble left and right, him going to UA would only get him in more trouble. “Come on Midoriya, we have some villains to talk of.” Nezu whispered while pulling his student along. Midoriya followed quickly and he felt a pair of eyes watching him.

 

Midoriya sighed in relief, he never liked open spaces as anyone could see him. Midoriya sank into his nest of a couch, holding a college biology textbook close to him. Nezu gave him a concerned glace as he was passed a tea cup. “Sorry for the trouble Nezu-San.” Midoriya mumbled guiltily. Nezu gave a sigh “Do you need me to fetch your medicine? I think your anxiety is starting to spike again.” Midoriya simply nodded and watch his sensei slip out of the secret room.

 

As Nezu slipped into the hallway, he noticed a mummy walking by him. “Are you sure you are well enough to work Aizawa?” Nezu questioned while slowing down. He heard an audible sigh from Aizawa “Of course I am. I’m alive and my students are more important.” the man grumbled, trying to just get to the teachers lounge. Nezu gave a smile and continued walking down the hall. “Oh Nezu?” Aizawa asked turning around. Nezu’s tail flickered as a response and Aizawa continued. “Bunny is active again.” Aizawa stated before waddling off. Nezu gave a chuckle while starting to speed his way to the nurse’s office.

 

Nezu knew very little about this student, but in return for keeping his curiosity to himself he got a great strategist, informist and underground hero in the works. It felt weird, this child who didn’t care what happened to them, was one of the smartest humans Nezu knew, it was scary. He knew nothing of the kid’s past, homelife or his activities. Nezu knew that Midoriya had a cafe job, which he took seriously. Midoriya’s school day lasted 3 hours in the first half, from 7:45 am to 10:45am then he goes on break when all the lunches happen, just so he doesn’t run into anyone. He returns to school for 2 hours, leaves at 3:45 and then Nezu doesn’t see him until the next day.

 

Izuku Midoriya had always interested Nezu, but there was not much Nezu could learn about him. Midoriya had completely separated his school, work and personal life, to the point it was impressive. Nezu sighed, reaching the cabinet and grabbing a few pills for his student. Nezu knew of Izuku’s anxiety and depression, but never what was the start of them. Some ticks Nezu found out was too many people, being alone with a new person, men with slightly above average height with a muscular build, and the weirdest one, looking in mirrors. His student couldn’t stand looking at himself in the mirror, it gave him enough anxiety to start crying. But whenever he saw his reflection in water or anything of the sort, he was unbothered.

 

Nezu sighed, sliding his keycard in the secret door’s lock. Midoriya was practically hidden from everyone and was frightened whenever he wasn’t hidden. He always was jumpy, like he had expected to hit. Nezu called out to his student, who ran over to the principal. “Hi Nezu-Sensei, that took you longer than normal!” the kid observed looking at the teacher while he was handed pills. “Just perceptive as normal I see, I had to discuss something with a teacher injured at USJ.” He replied, trying to not upset the boy.  “Oh someone else got injured? Can I give them a flower crown??” He questioned, already going to his bag to grab the fake flowers. Nezu thought for a moment, and agreed. “Well Bakugo and for others were injured so make enough for all of them.” Nezu sighed while looking at an email. 

 

He looked at the police report in the email, it was about Bunny and how they dumped a bunch of information about the USJ villains on them. Midoriya hopped up, pulling on a sweatshirt that Nezu didn’t recognize. “Did you get new clothes?” Nezu asked, making the teen lookup. “Oh my boss gave me it, she wanted me to show stuff off the new merch.” he stated tucking the flowers into the huge pocket. As Nezu started to go to the door, the boy started to braid the flowers together. Midoriya blended lilies with poppies for one crown, while still walking. He accidently bumped into the door, apologized to it and sidestepped into Nezu’s main office. As he finished the crown, hands working fast as he stepped into the hallway. The finished crown hung on his arm as he intertwined forget-me-nots and anemones. He happily finished it as he walked up the staircase, being led by Nezu’s tail pulling him along. The last crown consisted of roses and jonquil, the pink and white complementing each other.

 

Nezu opened the 1-A door, Midoriya waiting outside for a moment. He talked to everyone, apologizing for what had happened, then asked his student to come in. Midoriya trotted in, noticed the man wrapped in bandages and gaped. He looked for a moment and muttered a curse under his breath. He placed the first crown on the frog girl, her tongue bandaged up and laying outside of her mouth. As Izuku walked to the other side of the room, placing the crown crookedly on a purple haired student. The kids hair was too puffy for the crown to lay straight! The dull purples with the whites and pinks was a nice look on the boy. Midoriya gave an awkward smile, before turning to his friend. The small teen held a small frown as he pulled a flower crown from the bomb’s bag. It was pure yellow daisies, the flowers fake petals still held their shape after being crushed, it was lightly plopped onto the taller’s head. Finally he approached the teacher, who stood tall and looked down at the boy, height difference very obvious in this moment. The boy held an inquisitive look, before turning around and lifting the desk closest to him, the chair coming with. Shoji gawked as this tiny boy lifted him and the 20 pound desk effortlessly. 

 

The short boy placed it next to the teacher, who had a look between horror and being impressed on his face. Midoriya kneeled on the desk, reaching up to press the crown with forget-me-nots on the teachers head. The white flowers were a stark difference in the hero’s back outfit only interrupted by his bandages and capture scarf.  The boy then effortlessly moved the desk back, meanwhile the students still wore confused expressions. Bakugo had sighed and fixed his flower crown. The short boy gave a big smile before bowing and leaving the class. “Well 1-A, that was my personal student. You probably will only see him once or twice more for the next 3 years so don’t worry about talking to him. If you do try to befriend him, please try not to trigger any anxiety attacks, I don’t think Recovery Girl enjoys seeing him crying.” Nezu said holding a never faltering grin. Iida had stood up and asked why he had worn a uniform. Nezu told the boy that his student had a different curriculum and that if he had a uniform that it would probably get ruined everyday.  

 

Aizawa had looked so confuse and done. He glared at the principal and grunted, wanting to ask a question. “Go ahead and ask what you need to Aizawa” Nezu said, Aizawa sighing. “When did you meet him? And how?” he asked, Nezu sighed, and started to sign. ‘I found him analyzing a hero fight about a year ago.’  Aizawa looked for a moment, shook his head and sent his principal off.



Chapter Text

When Midoriya had finally left 1-A he booked it. Yea anxiety was great especially with the fact he was forced not to wear a UA uniform. Nezu says that anxiety wouldn’t help him so he should try fighting it. Occasionally he visited classes for the sole purpose of talking and standing out. They were always 3rd years that he visited, so seeing the first year teacher Eraserhead was a first. Midoriya was sure that Aizawa didn’t recognize him at all, but he didn’t want to risk anything. He wasn’t sure if Aizawa remembered him from two years ago, and Midoriya really hoped the pro hero forgot about ever hearing his voice. Yea he had puberty but that just gave him a height of 160 centimeters, that made him pretty short. His hair had gotten greener, making it harder to hide but it was a lot longer than back then. He voice was one of the few things that barely changed, it was still childish and sweetly toned. It annoyed Midoriya that everyone who heard him talked told him he was calming in mellow. But he supposed it worked better when using a voice changer, making him seem dangerous.

 

He didn’t know how to feel about how about showing where he worked, but he decided it wouldn’t be a big deal. After all nobody from 1-A would care who he is and Nezu respects his privacy. Midoriya tiredly rubbed his eyes, sliding a card to be let into the secret office. He spent most of his time here nowadays, studying books and articles. The teen enjoyed giving people ways to increase their powers, so occasionally he would sneak a letter to the UA teachers. He had designed a completely new speaker for Mic, making it smaller but having it pack a bigger punch. He had given Snipe a few recommendations on firearms and how to silence them. He had made a gummy bear recipe to give people more energy when they were drained by Recovery Girl’s quirk. He had also given a few business course teachers ideas on what to teach. He was often also fixing the doors, machines and gear that belong to the support courses.

 

The teen sighed as he grabbed a book he made about hero’s costumes. He flipped through the pages, looking for the prototype of new gloves for Vlad King. He sighed while picking up a pencil and added a strap to the wrist. He leaned back in the chair, sighed and wanting more ideas. He heard the door snap open and looked towards his teacher. “Hey Midoriya, I wanted to ask if you wanted to study class 1-A? You don’t have to.” the principal asked while sitting in his office chair, typing. The teen sighed “Is this a way to make me talk to more people?” Midoriya groaned. Nezu gave a kind smile, but there was still a devious smile to it. “Somewhat, I want you to have friends as you are still a child, but you could use it as a way to learn about all the students.” Nezu said still clicking away at his keyboard. Midoriya launched the pencil in his hands in between Nezu’s eyes, but the rat caught it. “Do I need more friends? My focus is studying and working right now.” the teen asked at the pencil went flying back to him. Nezu sighed “If you become friends with someone other than Bakugo than I will let you put a flower crown on me.” The principal regretted his words as the teen shouted “DEAL” slamming the notebook into the ground.

Nezu proceeded to slam his head into the desk. The kid would come running back as soon as they would see 1-A staring at him. Or when he ran into teachers because of the bell ringing. As expected the student burst into the office three minutes later, sweat running down his face. “Are you okay Midoriya?” The creature asked, not looking up from the laptop. “How long do I have for this task?” Midoriya asked, slightly shaking. “As long as ya need I supposed. But are you sure you want to do this?” “Yea I need to see you in a flower crown” was the immediate retort. Nezu sighed while the teen went back to the drawing board to find an idea for Vlad King’s costume.

Nezu finished clacking on his keyboard just as an alarm rang. The principal looked to the clock, and told the teen it was time to go. Midoriya nodded, handed his promo designs to be looked over and headed out of the office. Midoriya legit booked it out of UA, making it so the cameras saw him as a slight blur. As he jumped out of UA, he slipped off the hoodie and replaced it with an apron. He pushed open the back door to a cafe and greeted his bosses. One was frosting a cake and mumbled a hello while not switching her focus. The other boss peaked out from a room and went to pat the teen’s hair. “Hey Zu-Chan, can you help me out with the cats?” The girl asked, going around Midoriya to fix his apron’s knot.

The young teen had gone out from behind the counter and to the cat’s tree. A big black maine coon let out a loud meow as it perched on the boy’s head, completely covering it. The boy giggled as he collected a siamese cat and brown tabby from the tree as he prepared to clean it. Midoriya enjoyed his time at the cat cafe, the 14 cats they housed were all sweet just like his bosses. The younger one was 17, her name was Suki. She had dull black hair, eyes that reflected emeralds and three freckles on each cheek. Her skin was tanner than his own, but she was still pale. The other one was Rini who was the one who Midoriya worked with most often, as she took care of the customers and cats. Rini was the bubbly one of the two and had bouncy light blue hair. Her clothes were always pastels, and in a cutesy manner. The adorable manner she presented herself was adorable, but she was an absolute monster. He remembers one time that a customer had gotten handsy with Suki when she had to place a cake out. Rini had actually decked the guy and probably killed him if he could. 

As the male finished cleaning the cat tree and took the cats off himself, Suki approached him. “Should we serve cinnamon rolls?” She asked while standing on her tiptoes to pet the maine coon. The cat jumped to the lower platform, happy his favorite person was done with working for a small bit. “Hmm those would be nice, but we should use them as a seasonal item to go with the hot chocolate!” He said chipperly. His work was the only place he felt comfortable and happy, no matter who came in. The girl nodded and smiled, but looked slightly upset. “What's wrong Suki-Chan?” He asked while the girl tensed. “Uh- I just feel like I don’t talk to you enough and tha-t you might not understand h-how much I value you as both a friend and co-worker..” She stuttered, moving her free hand to her neck. 

The green fluff let out a smile, and went to pat the girl’s black hair, she flinched when he did but he ignored it. “Thanks Suki, I enjoy your company too. Your quirk is quite cool as it depends on people's emotions. It lets you take advantage of when people are freaking out and use it to better your knowledge. It is like a computer!I think it’s so nice that you care about me and the cafe you run. It’s fun to work here and it helps to distract me well enough. I also sometimes think you keep me around because of my anxiety and hesitation helps you keep your wits about you.” He said revoking his hand and rubbing his neck.

Suki let off a surprised smile, mumbled a thank you and walked into the back, probably to start on the lunch menu and making drinks. Midoriya smiled as he went over to a display case. Inside was headbands with cat ears on them, all sorts of colors and materials. He went over to the corkboard next to it and looked at the pictures. All of them were of people with the siamese cat, as she was a hard one to please. The cat was named after a Irish creamer because of the light milking coloring mixed in with the chocolate points. Bailey was a skittish and only allowed four people outside of the three workers to touch her. He looked to one photo and froze. He rarely paid attention to who the cat liked and two of the people looked just like people from 1-A.

Nezu sighed as he headed to the teacher’s lounge. Inside Aizawa was looking in the filing cabinet, unaware of the mouse behind him. Nezu cleared his throat, causing Aizawa to look behind him. “Trying to look up Midoriya’s profile?” He mouse asked with a smirk. Aizawa stared for a moment and nodded, giving an unimpressed look. Nezu sighed, went over to his desk and pulled out a lime green notebook. He handed it to Aizawa and motioned for him to open it. “He’s quirkless?” The underground hero asked, while resting a finger on the pages edge. Nezu nodded “Go ahead and read it. There is only 3 pages anyways, I don’t know anything other then the basics myself.” Nezu sighed out while walking to his tea kettle. “Just put it back in my desk in this room.” The mouse stated walking out of the room.

-

As Aizawa read over the first page he gaped, not expecting this. His schedule was weird but made it so he avoided contact with many people. The boy had an hour long commute to his apartment, and Nezu was his only contact. He assumed the kid had seen this file, looking at the writing near where his height was. His thoughts led back to when this damned flower crown was placed on his head. The boy was obviously smart and strong, but he wondered how long it would be until the boy gave up. The pro was surprised they boy didn’t already give up, so something must be happening behind the scenes? Right? The underground hero thought back to this morning, the kid was comfortable with Bakugo. The student known for being brash, rude and a powerhouse got along with this anxiety ridden, depressed smart teen. It didn’t make sense and Aizawa became determined to figure out this problem child.

 

But for now he set down the folder in one of Nezu’s many desks, and went to his own. As he powered on his computer a notification from the police department came up. It was an email sending the information from the notebook to him, telling him to inform the students of the quirks and people. Towards the end, they attached Bunny’s file, as the information was renewed. As he clicked the file, it showed the information of all of Bunny’s battles. The only one were someone was terribly injured as an opponent was the USJ. That had been the most blood the vigilante shed, and it wasn’t even on a humane person. Upon continuing to read the information, it showed a list of heros Bunny had interacted with, or those who tried to capture him.

 

Endeavor: 1

Backdraft: 1

Death Arms: 1

Kamui Woods: 1

Best Jeanist: 1

Ingenium: 1 

Midnight: 2 

Snipe: 2

Hawks: 2

Present Mic: 5

Eraserhead: 7

 

And holy shit, Eraser just realized how weird Bunny was. He obviously favored Present Mic and Eraserhead as heros, but for what reason? He had met Bunny the most times, but it was during a place where the kid couldn’t easily be caught. Examples: Eraser was injured during a battle so Bunny could easily escape, too many fights happening at once so the heroes were glad for some back up, Eraser couldn’t move because of bloody injuries and then he saw Bunny again but couldn’t move. Aizawa groaned in annoyance, but thought of a way to use it to his advantage. He could totally lure out Bunny. But he wasn’t going to do that. Why? Oh just because Bunny had taken out so many abusers, rapists, thieves, drug dealers and a bunch of other shitty people to the point it made life interesting. 

 

Aizawa still thought back to when he met Bunny, he was a kid and was injured. The teacher and hero wished he could of helped the poor boy, but he had gotten distracted by the villian. As he kept looking in the file he found a note on the appearance. ‘We think he took the name we give him to heart, as in the more recent times of being spotted he has a bunny tail’  The teacher thought back to last night and realized that the kid did indeed have a tail. The man let out a groan and slammed his head into the desk, causing the flower crown to fall off. 

 

He glared at the crown, the forget-me-nots and anemones stared back, their white petals slightly shimmering. “Oi, Sensei! Are ya good?” A voice from the door called. The pro followed it to see Bakugo in the door frame. Aizawa mumbled a yes and looked at his screen, before shutting it into sleep mode. “Where is your pain killers?” The boy growled while stepping into the lounge. Aizawa eyed him carefully and responded. “It’s in my bag over there.” while tilting his head to convey the direction. Bakugo stormed over and easily found the medicine, and read the label. The boy seemed to sigh as he walked to his teacher and took out pills for him. “Wait before you take those, you can have coffee with these so I’ll make some.” The boy growled again, walking to the coffee machine. “WHAT TYPE” He shouted, the teacher shouting ‘Black’ out as a response.

 

The blonde stomped over as the coffee finished, and lightly gave the cup to his mentor.  As Aizawa took a sip the flower crown was slammed onto his head. The teacher glared as he looked toward the boy who looked somewhere else in the room. “Midoriya made that as a good luck charm. No idea why he does it but if I got to wear it, so do you.” He ash blonde said while looking towards a window. His expression softened as he watched outside, causing Aizawa to look back. And right at the gate was Midoriya, holding four boxes in his arms and someone travel along with him. The girl Aizawa recognized Rini, the girl who worked at the cat cafe he frequented. She was allowed on UA campus as she brought gifts of good food and drinks for the teachers. Well this batch seemed bigger, so it might be for the students as well. The blonde sighed as he headed for the door “Make sure to take care of yourself sensei.” He stated before shutting it.

 

Aizawa held a questioning glare at the door, he held it until the door was opened. “Oh! Aizawa-San, I hadn’t expected you to be here because of the USJ!” A voice boomed. Aizawa powered his screen back on, a distraction from the number one hero coming in. “I’m not dead, so I have to work.” He stated blandly, continuing to read Bunny’s file. The skeleton walked around the desks and sat on a couch, seeming nervous for something to come. After a few moments, Nezu strolled in, Tensei following behind him. Tensei spared a wave to Aizawa, and went to go sit by him. “Why are you at UA?” Eraser asked with absolutely no class. “Oh I’m gonna be babysitting!” The man replied excitedly as Aizawa eyed him carefully. The pros turned to the couches, deciding to see what they were talking about. “All Might how come you have never met Bunny?” Nezu asked, causing Yagi to look at him weirdly.

 

“I am not sure?” The skeleton said like a question. “Well both Hawks and Endeavor have met him, Endeavor had sought him out to imprison him, Hawks doing the same once but the other time Bunny helped him put out a drug ring. But you have not met him at all, do you have a reason?” Nezu asked, a scary gleam in his eyes. “I have limited time in my hero form, so going after a vigilante isn’t in my priorities.” All Might said while straightening his posture. “Have you seen him?” Nezu asked while refilling the now empty tea cup belonging to the pro in front of him. Said pro shook his head, causing Nezu to frown. The rat took a photo out of his coat, and slid it across the table, face down. Yagi took up the photo, staring for a moment. “Isn’t this a USJ villain? I'm pretty sure I saw him there and he disappeared.” He asked, sliding the photo back to Nezu. The rat sighed, telling Yagi that the vigilante had saved Aizawa, taken down the Nomu and managed to hand over a bunch of information about the villains.

 

The number one hero stared at this tea, before looking up to the sound of an opening door. Inside walked Midoriya and Rini, placing the treats on one of the counters that held the fridges, microwaves and coffee machine. Tensei proceeded to get up and pat the curly haired boy on the head. Midoriya waved Rini goodbye after she had place a bag of coffee taffy in front of Aizawa. Midoriya had scanned the room, was about to go over to his mentor before noticing All Might. The boy grimaced and Nezu turned to him. “Go hang out with Tensei, you could probably try befriending his brother if you don’t annoy him with the fact that you aren’t wearing a uniform.” The mouse cackled. Midoriya looked like he craved death, but opened up a box to hand Tensei a pastry. The hero gladly took it and bit into it, before exclaiming “Oh! It tastes like a cinnamon roll!” The kid gave a light smile and pull out his phone. The kid typed happily before facing the phone towards the zoom hero. Said hero nodded and followed the boy out of the room, off to go who knows what.

-

Apparently it wasn’t a good thing to leave the two alone together. As when Aizawa looked out the window, he saw Midoriya getting a piggyback ride with the hero using his quirk. The child was placed down, and the kid put something on his phone. Tensei did the pose that Midnight called the ‘Proud Brother Pose’. The pose was used when someone gave a good idea, even if it was fun but stupid. The pair zoomed into the school and Aizawa decided it was best to follow them. When he arrived to class 1-A he saw his coworker by Uraraka, Iida doing crazy hand motions telling his brother something was ‘absurd and a bad idea’. “What are you guys yelling about?” Aizawa growled, causing Midoriya to jump in fear. “Oh, we want your student to make me float so me and Izuku can FLYYYYY” The pro said while lifting up said child and spinning him in the air. 

 

Bakugo hand ended up stealing the kid from the pro hero, flicking both their foreheads because of the stupid idea and forcing Tensei to give the babysitting over to himself. Tensei had pouted, but soon received a call that he was needed on scene so he waved goodbye to his brother and the rest of class 1-A. Bakugo sighed while rummaging through his bag. He had taken out a book on coding and a laptop. “Have fun Deku” The bomb boy said while handing the items off. The floof had immediately gone to the back of the room and typing furiously. The kid twitched a few times because he was nervous, but soon Aizawa had the guts to go over to the boy. Even though his footsteps were quiet,  the boy offered a wave as the pro stalked over. He looked down at the page the boy was on. “How to properly fix ‘BrainFuck’ coding mistakes.”

 

This kid was literally coding one of the most difficult coding languages like it was nothing, and fixing any mistakes someone else made. What the actual fuck.

Chapter Text

Bakugo held his breath for most of class. Ectoplasm didn’t seem to mind the typing in the back of the room, or the fact he had an uncharted student in the room. But the teacher decided to call on the poor boy, which made Bakugo nearly explode his pen. The boy merely shouted ‘ 54-9a/ 4.57’ and returned to typing. The teacher gaped, and Iida looked astounded. “You have been typing this whole time! How in the world are you so easily doing this work?” The class president shouted. “I memorized your entire text book 3 years ago, it’s quiet easy material.” was the reply, still not stopping the typing. Suddenly a ding was heard from a phone. Ectoplasm moved his cloak around and found his phone. “DID YOU HACK THE TEACHER CHAT?!?” Ectoplasm shouted, the kid answering yes. Mina jumped up from her seat, wanting to see the tea the teachers had. Midoriya closed his laptop when she approached, slightly tensing up. “Oi! Leave him alone and go do your math alien!” Bakugo shouted. As he stood up, Midoriya had lept up and handed the laptop and book to him. ‘ I am going to back to Nezu, Bye Kacchan’ He signed quickly. Well it wasn’t his name he signed, it was the sign for explosion three times. 

As boom boy returned to his desk, stuffing the book and laptop into his bag. Ectoplasm had stopped question the floof and continued teaching the class. Bakugo sighed, hoping his friend was ok. He wasn’t the same after Auntie had died, and he would never be the same again. Bakugo scratched out a few answers, just writing as quickly as possible. He hadn’t noticed the classroom door open and a figure approach the front.  “Hello Class 1-A!” All Might boomed, a smile blasted across his face. Bakugo looked up, and met his hero’s eyes. A scowl filled his face, the hero acted like the class wasn’t attacked the day before. The teacher smiled brightly, and pushed a button to open up the hero costumes. “Today we will be going over some basic training. It’s mostly just for defense, just in case anything happens again.” 

Bakugo wanted to leave to go make sure his friend was ok, but the teacher was one he looked forward to seeing. As he looked out the window, he saw Midoriya outside climbing a tree. Nezu was nowhere in sight, causing Bakugo to slam his hands on his desk. “THAT LIAR” He screamed while running out the door. All Might catches Bakugo when he started running and tries calming the boy down. Bakugo continues to try and run from him, but eventually Midnight knocks him out. Once he woke up in the nurse’s office. “Oi! Why am I here?!?” He yelled, the nurse turning around in her chair. “Midnight had to knock you out, you kept yelling about someone being a liar. How are you feeling?” The nurse asked while handing him gummies. Bakugo groaned, and got up to leave without telling her anything. A bell rang throughout the school, and Bakugo asked which bell that was. “You can go home now, that was the last one. Have a good day Bakugo-Kun” The nurse said, turning back to her desk. Bakugo groaned again, stomping out of the Nurse’s office. He couldn’t remember who he was calling a liar, but he didn’t care anymore. He let out a long yawn as he approached the school gate, seeing a few teachers sweeping the school for students. 

From the corner of his eye he spots a blur of green. “Oi! Deku! Did ya stay behind today?” He shouted, a shout was heard as a response. “Y-yea! I  di-did!” He turned to the direction it was from, seeing Midoriya weaving flowers in his hands, running down the stairs. “Oi! Be carefu-” He started to shout but Midoriya had already started to trip. He saw a light gray scarf wrapped around the boy’s shoulders, making the teen wince. Bakugo rushed forward and set the small teen straight, making sure to avoid the scarf. He looked up as Aizawa-Sensei approached the pair.

-

Midoriya felt his throat close up as the scarf wrapped around him. Another person might have just have heard his voice, the high pitched, too feminine, stuttering voice. He felt Bakugo reaching out to him, and he immediately latched on. He heard the mumbling of a discussion he couldn’t understand, it started to freak him out. He didn’t like people hearing his voice, he didn’t like being trapped and tied up and he definitely didn’t like having a panic attack in front of people. But that was all happening now.  He saw blurs of gray, black, dusky yellow and.. Purple? The tears hid his eyes as he started to pull at the thing around him. He kept pulling on it until he heard his friend’s voice. “Deku… Stop struggling against the cloth ok? It’s there to give you something to hold onto.” Midoriya blinked tears from his eyes, grasping for his friend’s hand. “Izuku-Kun, can you find my voice?” Someone said, grabbing his hands. The hands that held him were soft and gray. He nodded his head, still trembling as he felt his hands let go of. “Good, good. Now are you scared of the fact someone heard your voice?” He asked while rubbing his back.

Midoriya shifted uncomfortably, and started to slowly sign. ‘ Yes, someone not to be trusted heard it. They will be mean and punish me.’ he concealed a sob while hiding his face in his hair and legs. “It’s ok. They won’t do anything to you. Now, how about you stay at the school? I don’t think you should go home on your own right now Izuku-Kun.” Ahhh there it was, Nezu was the one comforting him and trying to have him stay at home. He shook his head, and started to stand up. ‘I will be fine, I just wanna go home.’ Midoriya took a deep breath as he signed. Nezu sighed next to him, standing up and swiping on his pants. “Kid, let me take you home. It’s my fault for this and I have a car.” Someone said from behind him. Midoriya spun on his heel to look at the man. And holy shoot it was class 1-A’s teacher. He jumped slightly, falling onto his friend who growled, causing him to jump again. “Sorry, Deku. But Aizawa-Sensei he won’t be going with you. I can bring him to my house as his mother was good friends with my family. “Hm, let me drop you off at your house then.” Midoriya felt his heart quicken and started frantically signing ‘Neither of you need to do that. I’m fine on my own now so goodbye!’ ending with a quick bow and running out of the gates. 

Apparently running every night was great for him, as when he turned a corner he saw the teachers at the gate still. Midoriya continued booking it, before running straight into someone. He let out a small whimper as his shoulder collided with the sidewalk. He groaned as he took out his phone, opened the notes app and quickly typed an apology. As he looked up to turn the phone around he saw the kid from 1-A that Bailey liked. “Oh, you’re Nezu’s student.” The kid said monotonely, reaching out a hand from where he stood. Apparently Midoriya didn’t even knock the kid down upon collision, which mildly impressed him. He stood up on his own, showed the kid his apology who nodded in acceptance and stretched so that he could keep running. “Hey, where in the world do you have to be so quickly?” The boy asked quirking an eyebrow. Midoriya had started to sign but stopped upon realising the boy probably didn’t know it. The hell does ‘Sorry I have to go home before i-” mean.” The purple haired boy asked, tilting his head. Midoriya perked up and started to continue his sentence. ‘I have to go home, sorry that’s vague but I don’t need a stranger knowing my problems.”   The kid sighed and looked at him. “Whatever, bye.” he groaned while the smaller sent a happy wave.

Midoriya glided across the rooftops, his now black hair stuck against his forehead from the wind. He held a sigh of relief while looking up at the sky. A small buzz came from his phone, a time indicating it was 2:30 AM. He knew he didn’t have to be a vigilante, that he didn’t have to balance two lives, but he loved it. He loved how when he wore this hoodie, it had once been of his favorite hero but that was gone. Now this hoodie meant he didn’t have to be scared. He didn’t have to be anxious about people hearing his voice. He started adjusting his scarf around his neck, he hadn’t been able to fix his mask yet so he hid his face with a green scarf. He ended up feeling around his head for his ears. They had once mimicked All Might’s hair, but the dream of being like him was long gone. He kept the extra bunch of fabric by the sides of the ears, never having the heart to completely remove something from the jacket. He remembered when he bought the jacket, two others bought with it, he was so happy to get three of them but his happiness was crushed when All Might tore his hero dream down. And All Might would never know of the fact that the person he told couldn’t be a hero was now a vigilante.  He felt his grip tighten on the ears, the ends still flapping in the wind. He let out a sigh and brought his hands to his pocket. 

Bunny leaped across a roof, quickly jumping while being as silent as possible, before spotting a person on a roof diagonal from him. He felt his eyes widen as he realized the figure, it was Eraserhead again. He silently made his way over and perched on top of an A/C unit. “Aren’t you supposed to be resting, Eraser?” He asked, his voice sounding completely different from earlier today. The pro spun around and glared. “Why the hell do you keep finding me?” he growled while sending a capture weapon at the vigilante. “Yikes, you are way slower. I think you should rest soooo… off to your house we go!” He chirped, pulling the capture scarf around Eraserhead and effectively trapping him. “What the hell are you doing?” he pro asked, slightly struggling against his own weapon. “Trying to make sure you don’t get injured further, now stop moving so much it makes it harder to carry you.” He replied while jumping with the pro in his arms. “Ugh whatever, you are confusing.” The pro groaned. Bunny hid a giggle, running quickly on the roof tops. “I try, aren’t you gonna question me while I have you?” Bunny taunted. “Why are you helping me?” The pro asked eventually. Bunny hummed for a second, before thinking of an answer. “It’s what heroes are supposed to do, but some would rather destroy a villain than save a civilian. You” He booped Aizawa’s bandaged nose “Are not like that. You help people with as much power as you can and put your student’s lives before your own. I just admire you and don’t want to see you hurt…” The vigilante sentence trailed off as he leapt onto a balcony. “Anywayssss I think you live at this house right? Oh f it I can just bring you to the street.” The boy said, ducking under a roof and placing Eraser at his doorstep. “How old are you?” Eraser asked before the vigilante turned away. Eraser observed as the kid toyed with his scarf, seemingly nervous about answering. “Old enough to know this world is a jerk..” 

Eraser tried to reach out and grab the vigilante, but they had already  jumped up onto the roof and sped off into the night. He groaned, pounding his head against the door lightly. His husband soon came out and berated him for trying to go on patrol, even though both the government and his family denied it. As he walked past his husband, he noticed a glimmer of light from his son’s room. He knocked on it twice before hearing a groggy ‘come in’. As he opened the door, he saw his son at his desk practicing english, wearing a dark purple cat hooded blanket with the fluffy black cat called bowtie on his lap. “Can’t sleep again?” Aizawa asked while sitting on the bed. Shinso turn his chair around and looked at his foster dad. “Yea, but it’s not insomnia. I keep thinking about how weird that boy is.” He groaned his hood slipping off his head as he leaned back. Aizawa raised an eyebrow asking for an explanation. “Nezu’s student ran into me today, I mean literally ran. He managed to knock himself down onto the ground and was frantic and nervous with his movements. He just seemed so… off. Emotionally I mean” Shinso said resting his hand on his chin, mildly thinking about the boy. Aizawa nodded and stood up “His file was weird as hell. He also hacked the teacher’s chat so that was weird. He made a bet with Nezu that if he was able to befriend someone other than Bakugo, that Nezu would wear a flower crown.” Aizawa walked to the door as Shinso picked up the flower crown on his desk. He saw his son slid a finger across one of the rose petals, sighing and putting it back on his desk.

Chapter Text

Midoriya feels like an idiot, Eraserhead could have seen his half face. Yea he covered up his freckles, but Midoriya had no idea if the makeup was still on when he whisked the hero back home. Midoriya sunk into his mattress, clutching a pillow as hard as he could. He sniffed the air for the apple cinnamon he was so familiar with, but it wasn’t there. The scent had gone away again, just when he wanted it most. It always  comforted him after all, it was the smell of the perfume his mother wore. The crisp scent of apples, mixing with the wafting cinnamon for the perfect autumn scent. Screw pumpkin spice! Apple Cinnamon was the best scent in Midoriya’s mind and he would never change that. He remembered the recipe book Suki gave him, full of all sorts of things from the cafe some traditional some… tasty experimental dishes. He sighed, lifting himself from his soft sheets. They had once been All Might but those were now folded on a shelf in the guest room. The guest room wasn’t for guests anymore, it was filled with things that made Midoriya sad, which included his entire stock of All Might merchandise. He opened the door to the hall and stepped out.

He tread carefully to the kitchen, seeing his drawing tablet set out in the living room. He looked at the picture of Present Mic he was using as a reference. He shook his head ‘Work is for later Izu, right now it’s time to bake!” he chirped to himself, wrapping an apron around his slim figure. As he pulled out the book from the shelving unit, he heard a quick tapping at the door. He felt himself glaring at the wood for a moment before going to check the peephole. While looking outside he saw nothing, until he looked downward. There was a light green package that sat outside his door. He could clearly see the UA symbol and address, so he quickly brought it inside.

As the set the package on the counter, he went to go open a cupboard. He took out a few mixing bowls, spatulas, and the mixer. Soon he traveled across the kitchen to grab the ingredients, also grabbing a jar of apple butter to add to the filling. As he peeled the apples, a ding came from his phone, signifying a phone call. He looked over and answered it upon seeing it was his mentor. “Why are you call me at…. 3am?” He asked, starting to chop the apples. “Ah Midoriya! I wanted to make sure you were ok, but what are you cutting?” He heard the speaker ask as he sprinkled cinnamon on the apples. “I’m making apple pie, would you like me to bring a slice for you?” He asked back, starting to create the filling completely. “Ahh sure! Do you think you feel well enough to go to school? Or do I need to teach the lessons at your apartment?” the principal asked him, concern obvious in his voice. “Uhhh I’ll be good to go to school. I probably won’t try talking to anyone by the way. Also, never get me to come early again, a bunch of people saw me.” He responded, happily starting to prepare the dough. Nezu thanked him again, and hung up the call.

As Midoriya smothered the dough in the pie tin, he heard the oven’s timer go off.  As he poured the filling into the tin, his thoughts went to the box. He layered the final layer of crust and plopped it in the oven, setting a timer along the way. He took a look behind his shoulder, noticing the green box against his brown countertop. Deciding he had time, he cracked open the box. Looking into the box, trying to see past the scarf paper. He peeled it back, and spotted a gray uniform and a letter. “Hello Midoriya! As your mentor it is important it is important to educate you in the matter of ... social situations! So as such, every Thursday you will join them(Class 1-A) in a group lesson. Feel free to help them if they don’t understand something. But please, for the sanity of their teachers, DO NOT teach them how to A) Make Bombs, B) Run a Country, C) Take Over Said Country, D) How to use guns, E) How to steal guns, and stealing in general and finally F) How to scare pro-heroes. If you do any of those things you will have to teach them a lesson , which is very chaotic. This is also an easy way to befriend one of them :) -From Nezu, Good Luck you’ll need it. 

Midoriya sighed as his hand slid over the red tie. He had no idea how to tie one and he refused to ask. So as the pie baked, he kept tying and untying the tie. He eventually got to a point where it looked decent, so he placed it back in the box. A few minutes of drawing passed, then the screeching of the timer came. He carefully took out the tin and looked at the pie. He felt proud that he was able to do it without help and a wave of happiness came over him. He purred after scenting the apple cinnamon, it soon was all that filled his nostrils. He soon was hit with a wave of sleepiness, something uncommon when you had insomnia. A yawn filled his mouth as he traveled to his room. As soon as he hit the soft sheets he felt himself drift into unconsciousness.

Smoke filled his lungs and fire licked at his skin. He tried reaching out for his mother, but his arms felt heavy and he couldn’t reach out far enough. He wanted to scream, he wanted to shout out for help but he couldn’t bring his voice to do it. A villain had fire shooting out from him, catching the whole building a flame. As he saw his mother pulled away from him, blood dripped from her throat. The world was spinning as his father charged forwards and tried attacking the villain. The man saw his father charging and grip his throat, easily crushing it. Blood sloshed against the pavement, drowning the contents in a red hue. The man let out a wicked smile, approaching Midoriya’s hand that lay on the pavement. “Well well well, a little kid couldn’t do anything, why is that not surprising? Take this as a warning kid, heroes can’t save everyone especially yo-” The man let out a strangled scream while blood splashed against the child’s face. Midoriya let out a sob as the villain fell against the ground, a poll sticking through the man’s chest. Midoriya lifted himself from the rubble and ran, before being drenched in rain.

Midoriya shot up in his bed, alarm blaring in his ears reading 6:30. He shut the alarm off while peeling the soaked blanket from his skin. He let out a pant as he failed to regain his breath. He stripped himself from his now soaked pajamas, haphazardly tossing them into the basket across the room. He sighed while grabbing a pair of leggings and a tunic. Both shades of gray but the tunic was darker. He pulled them onto his body, flinching when deciding what hoodie to put on. He spotted two of his vigilante hoodies in the corner of the closet. He went to move his hand to pull it out, but remembered he couldn’t wear it to UA. He instead turned around and grabbed the cafe hoodie, it was big on him and comfortable so he didn’t mind wearing it two days in a row. As he pulled it over his head, he made a mental note to search his drawers for his Present Mic headphones. As he walked to the drawers he saw the headphones hanging on his bedpost. 

He pulled the headphones on and connected them to his phone. As he slipped the yellow bag over his shoulder he turned on a playlist he frequented. He hummed lightly along to the music, making sure not to be too loud. As he walked down the stairs, as he hated crowded elevators, he felt a tap on his shoulder. He turned around and looked at the woman in front of him. He soon recognized her as one of the frequent customers of the cafe, a young lady who went by Akane. She had wavy crimson hair and also gotten 2 cherry danishes and a cherry-cream mocha. “Excuse me young man, do you know if the cafe sells those yet? I like going there and those seem uber comfortable!” She chirped and gave a smile. He pulled out his phone, typing out an explanation that they were still in the test phase. She thanked him and he continued down to the station. He silently slipped his card into the reader and entered the silent car. He swayed his head to the music as he continued his hour long journey, looking through hero articles out of boredom.  He saw a video of Present Mic defeating a villain and effectively capturing them. He smiled to himself, after all he had grown fond enough of the hero that when he stripped his room of hero merch he left his undamaged. He remembered how once he had injured himself as Bunny and the hero had wrapped up his arm, but ended up failing to catch him after he started running. 

He saw a familiar face after 25 minutes of being on the train. Across the aisle a friendly face shot him a wave, to which he ignored. Yea it was the red-head from class 1-A, who didn’t seem offended at the rude act. The kid had started messaging someone, bouncing slightly in his seat while doing so. Every once in a while though, the kid turned over his shoulder to look at Midoriya. Midoriya felt his shoulders tense at every moment, but he tried distracting himself by turning on Present Mic’s radio. Occasionally on Tuesday mornings Mic would talk about an experience he had, or share some nice advice.  Today was one of those days. He sighed upon listening to the voice he had grown familiar with. “HEYYYYY LISTENERRSSSSS, your host Present Mic is here on this fineeee Tuesday morning! Today im sharing a story about… bullies! Yup I was bullied as a kid! I know it seems hopeless sometimes when you are, but I hope that if you are you tell your teachers and school staff. If you can’t trust them go tell your parents or guardians! If you ever need help, like being trapped in the band room closet, you can always call our help hotline. It can be about mental or social help, trying to get you transferred from your school or just helping to report the bullying.  Now, the time I was trapped in the band closet. I was with my friend who was a small little bean at the time (Now he is scary and tall) and we got pushed into the band closet. Now usually this happened only to me, but they involved the smol innocent bean so now I was mad. As my friend tried to reach up to the small window, I told him that I had it all covered. He gave me a glare and told me that there was no way he trusted me to get us out. I gave him my grand smile and pulled out a bobby pin. He stared at me while sitting on a tuba case. I managed to lock pick the door in a minute and the kids were still outside the door. My friend dragged them to the principal while I told it was fine and happened all the time. I swear the glare he gave the kids and the staff would have killed me if was directed at him. A friend that helped me report it single handedly stopped all the bullying. Even if you don’t have friends, our hotline can help you out instead of them. We might also give you friends that had the same experience! Who knows!.” 

The hero continued going over stories from when he was bullied. Midoriya held a small smile at the fact he related to some of the stories. In elementary school, his classmates locked him in a filing cabinet. In middle school whenever Bakugo wasn’t around they would tear apart his work. He shivered while remembering their quirks being used against his skin. He shook his head as he clambered out of the train car, the red-head giving a confused look as he got off a stop early. As he made his way to the cafe, he saw Suki approach him. “Here, your school starts in like 5 minutes so take yours and Nezu’s tea to go. There is also a strawberry sprinkle doughnut along with a raspberry jelly one. Have a good day Izuku-Chan.” She muttered while giving him a side hug.

Midoriya gave her a smile and started to jog off. As he slid a card into UA’s gates he saw Tensei run over to him. As he was swept up from his feet and placed over the hero’s shoulder he signed ‘What’s going on?’ to which the hero didn’t reply. He was satisfied by the fact that the hero was using his quirk to zoom him to ground beta. He hummed along to the tune now playing on Mic’s radio. As he looked at over the teachers, he spotted Present Mic. He gaped for a second, before trying to squirm out of his captor’s arms. He was soon placed on the ground in front of Nezu, who had a grin stretched across his face. “Hello Midoriya! Today we have decided to test you, after all you are joining for a lesson 1-A every Thursday!” He chirped. Midoriya gave a sigh, and removed the headphones from his ears before someone noticed. Sadly, the person whose merch it belongs to saw it. “Oh! Little Listener, you wear my merch?” He chirped while walking over. Midoriya visibly flinches, but Present Mic continues strutting over. The hero motioned for the headphones, to which Midoriya twitched before handing them over. The pro hero took out a gold marker and autographed the headphones. He stared at the headphones in his hands, a hot substance slipped from his eyes. His throat had closed up and ached as he let out a sob.

Present Mic crouched down and enveloped Midoriya in a half hug. Nezu seemed to have a look of shock and happiness on his face, before lightly leaning down and patting Midoriya’s head. Midoriya turned and grab Present Mic in a full hug, the pro froze for a moment before returning the hug. Midoriya’s sobs had died down to sniffles before he let go. Nezu looked oh so proud and moved his paws in sign language. ‘I didn’t know you like loudloud (Present MIc) If you had told me that I would have introduced you sooner. Are you happy about getting his autograph and a hug?”  Midoriya happily nodded his head up and down, almost to the point it hurt his neck. “Hello! I am here for the meeting!” A voice bombed before coughing. As Midoriya turned his head, he wanted to scream. He didn’t ever like seeing All Might, no matter what form the man took. He felt his feet start to back away, before a hand, more like paw, held onto his wrist. 

Midoriya looked frantically at the paw on his wrist. His mind was screaming at him to run away, to escape from the people around him. ‘Their bad, they will hurt you get away, leave, go far away before they punish you, LEAVEE’  It all screamed at him His head was pounding against his skull, pain shooting from his body. His mind kept screeching at him to the point his legs collapsed. He wanted to run but he couldn’t move. He wanted to scream but his throat was clogged. He felt a hot liquid escape his mouth as he tried to yell. Nothing worked, nothing would ever work. Everyone was an enemy right now and his body took over as he choked on his saliva.

-

Nezu had tried to ground Midoriya to his surrounding. He tried talking the boy out of his panic attack, but the boy seemed to dig himself further. Nezu had grabbed Midoriya’s wrist when he tried backing away, but that made the boy stare at it and try prying it off. All Might tried stepping forward toward the boy, but that cause him to panic further. Nezu saw saliva hanging out of the boys mouth, the kid trying to speak but choked farther. “STAY BACK YAGI!” Nezu yelled while trying his best to have a grounding hand on the boy. He saw the boy let out a whimper, continuing to struggle against the principal. The boy managed to wrangle himself free, but was tied up by Aizawa’s weapon as he approached the scene. “What the hell has happened? I haven’t seen a panic attack that bad in years.” He grumbled while holding the boy. “Yagi came over for the exam and it triggered something within my student.” Nezu responded with a concerned expression. He saw Recovery Girl coming over as quickly as possible, a sturdy hand wrapped around a small bag. When she saw Midoriya in Aizawa’s arms still sobbing and trying to escape she frowned. “Yagi… You were told not to go near him, so why did you?” She asked while rubbing a handkerchief over the boy’s cheeks. Yagi seemed shocked at the slight venom in her voice, but straighten up nonetheless. “I uhh.. Didn’t realize it was that bad..?” He said it as if it were a question. Aizawa sighed and swore a little under his breath. “What did you do to that kid?” Midnight spoke up from the other staff members. All Might frowned and mumbled an answer. “What was that?” She spoke with a tad venom even though she just met this child.

“I told him a quirkless child could never be a hero. That all they are is a liability that would be useless.” He said meeting the principal’s eyes. “That’s not everything Yagi ” Nezu said with a scary gleam in his eyes. All Might excused himself, as he felt the situation turn against him. He used the excuse of ‘I doubt the building will be standing long with nobody in charge of the first years!’ The hero hadn’t noticed that all the  first years had gathered in the gym, a few extra heroes around to observe them. As Nezu turned back to his student, he saw that both Present Mic and Eraserhead had enveloped him in a hug. He remembered how they had a son Midoriya’s age, who when they first adopted him that he had panic attacks. Nezu felt a small smile form on his face as he rubbed the boy’s back. He let the heroes comfort the boy, as he had no idea how comfort humans correctly. He called off the meeting of the teachers, allowing them to collect their students or go back to grading. Nezu looked at the group for a moment, an idea going to his head. “Midoriya, are you better now? I think there is someone you might get along with.” He said with a smirk.

Yea, Nezu realized that if they actually became friends he would have to wear a flower crown. But that was worth it to see Midoriya make a new friend right?

Chapter Text

Aizawa eyed Nezu suspiciously. The boy had just had a panic attack from seeing somebody and he suggests meeting a new person??? That was the dumbest thing that the Principal had said, which caused Aiawa to scoff. Nezu raised an eyebrow, but walked to Midoriya’s bag. He pulled out Midoriya’s phone, entered the pass code and opened a writing app. Nezu quickly typed a message, showed it to Present Mic and sent the hero on his way. As Nezu removed the message, Recovery Girl had started to check up on Midoriya. “Did you have a good rest last night?” She asked calmly while the boy was held in Aizawa’s arms and capture weapon. Midoriya shook his head and started to sign a little ‘I was up till about 4am, woke up at 6:30am. There was the nightmare again.’ He said his eyes looking at the white soles of his red shoes. The nurse sighed as she felt over the boy’s heart, trying to see if he was still panicking, The heart beat was slowing down, making Recover Girl let out a sigh of relief. “Can you try saying a word? I want to make sure your voice isn’t affected.” She asked politely, but the boy sat straighter. He looked around and only saw the 3 adults, but one was still technically a stranger. His green eyes met obsidian eyes, he felt himself relax. He continued to stare at the eyes on the hero, before looking at the bandages covering the man.

“A-ah! So-sorry i-t probab-ly hurt h-holding me li-like th-at.” He said jumping away from the hero. The nurse chuckled, “Seems like your voice is ok. Just a little more stuttering then normal.” Midoriya realized he had spoken and his hands clamped around his throat. He whimpered at the pain from his throat clogging up again. The nurse shook her head as Nezu handed him a cup of tea. He smelled the sour lemongrass tea and smiled. He happily sipped it with his principal, the teacher and nurse watching them. Midoriya smiled as he grabbed the strawberry sprinkled doughnut, taking a small bite of it. Nezu watching fondly, until he felt a tap on his shoulder. “I brought him!” Present Mic chirped, hiding his worry with a smile. The teen looked over and saw a crazy haired boy next to to the pro. He stared for a moment before he spoke. “Uh… Hi? Your name is.. Midoriya? Right?” in a questioning tired tone. The smaller teen nodded but then started motioning between the blond, black and purple haired people. Present Mic seemed to understand the wild signed, and sighed. “You pieced that together quickly little listener, but yes we are all family.”

Midoriya gapped before an idea came to his head. He trotted to his bag and took out his laptop. He opened a folder marked ‘workity smirkity’ and showed the pro a piece of art he had man. It was of Aizawa and Yamada posing together. Yamada leaned closer, and was amazed by the piece of art. ‘I got commissioned for that work a year ago. I think it is my favorite.’ Midoriya signed before closing the laptop. “Oh wow Midoriya, I didn’t know you drew!” Nezu said from behind Midoriya. Midoriya jumped up from where he was, slightly surprised from the mouse appearing behind him. “Wait. I think I have seen that are you “GreenFloof’?” Shinso said quirking an eyebrow in interest but still monotone. The smaller boy felt his face flush as he hid his face behind the laptop. The boy nodded his head behind the device. “Oh I’m PurpleCalico.” Shinso said oh so nonchalantly. Midoriya gaped for a moment, before lowering the device and giving a shy smile.

 

Midoriya remembered PurpleCalico was often on the artist part of the hero forums late at night. It was the day he showed the commissioned work that the boy had messaged him.

~You have received an instant message!~
PurpleCalico: Hey, I saw your Present Mic and Eraserhead art. I must say is quite good, but how much do you know about Eraserhead?
GreenFloof: Oh! I'm happy you like it. I know a few things about Eraserhead as I have done an analysis on him. I’m sorry that I can’t share that information, for I have no idea if you could use it against him.
PurpleCalico: Oh that makes sense, I have seen your analyses floating around before, how do you get that information?
GreenFloof: Oh, I take videos, news articles and stuff of that genre and analyze them. Sometimes if im lucky I see the fights in front of me.
PurpleCalico: That makes sense but Eraserhead has like no media on him. So you can analyze him from that
GreenFloof: There have been two videos of Eraser fighting, both were deleted soon after upload but I managed to watch them. I have also seen him a few times while walking around at night.
PurpleCalico: Are you out walking now? It’s 2am, you shouldn’t be out.
GreenFloof: I am but I’ll be fine. Also most aren’t awake at 2am so I’ll be good!
PurpleCalico: Do you have a death wish?
GreenFloof: Nah, but I’m trying to look for an underground hero named Mimic. He seems pretty powerful and good at his job.
PurpleCalico: You’re like 13, you shouldn’t go after hero fights at night on purpose.
GreenFloof: Im 14, and I don’t care about my life.
PurpleCalico: If I could I’d call your parents to get you.
GreenFloof: ooo are you a medium or do you own a ouija board?
PurpleCalico: You have made concerned about you in the span of 5 minutes of talking to you.
GreenFloof: Fun, anyways if you don’t have anymore questions then I will be going.
PurpleCalico: Hopefully to bed.
GreenFloof: That’s funny. If you want to keep in contact with me then you are allowed to friend me. But I will be off now!
PurpleCalico: Yea, bye. If you have any eraserhead doodles that you don’t mind sharing can you send them? He is pretty cool after all.
~ GreenFloof has signed off!~


As a sigh escaped Midoriya’s lips he looked around. Nobody was near the small vigilante, nobody even paid mind to him. He ricocheted off a wall and onto a roof, overlooking the streets. He felt a presence behind him and turned around with a jump to the side. “Hello Midnight~” He said with a cocky voice, leaning against the edge of the roof. “Bunny, I must say you don’t usually come to Saitama. What's the occasion?” Bunny looked around for a moment, before spotting another shadow in the corner. He jumped over Midnight and onto the perps neck, causing the man to drop his gun. “I’m just hopping around, anyways this guy is yours now, ta ta!~” Be replied leaping off the roof and onto the street. As he ducked into an alley, he saw who he was looking for. Mimic was patrolling the streets, but they were about to turn into an alley. Bunny heard a pocket knife click, he started to prepare to jump in. As expected someone from the alley what Mimic turned into charged at the hero, causing Bunny to spring into action.

Bunny quickly apprehended the attacker, causing Mimic to jump slightly. As Mimic tried reaching forward, the vigilante took that moment to speed off. He watched the pro’s confused posture as he tied up the attacker, calling in a report along the way. Soon a police car had come to take the villain, while a detective questioned the hero. He heard Mimic reply ‘I didn’t see any features about the person. They jumped so fast to apprehend the guy that all I saw a blur of bright green.’ To which confused the detective. “Was ia bunch of bright green that you saw?” he questioned, while Mimic nodded his head. “Weird, if it was bright green it isn’t the vigilante I thought it would be.” the detective sighed, returning to the police car. Bunny noticed that there was another person in the back, the guy who had tried to attack Midnight.

He let out a sigh, slightly trying to regain his breathe. He had done this for 15 months so far, but the adrenaline still got to him. He hadn’t made the mistake of getting injured and slumping in a random ally for a year, but that’s what he did. What ever quirk the guy that attacked Mimic had made it so Bunny was now bleeding. He felt his phone buzz with a reminder that he was done for the day. Soon another buzz was made and Bunny picked up the phone. “Have ya found Mimic?” A white message box said. He saw it was from PurpleCalico and he decided to mark it as read, just until he got home at least. He felt the blood run down his leg, not that it would be visible from the black cloth. He started to walk in the shadows, trying his best to stay completely hidden. His attempts didn’t work as he saw a man with long blond hair approach him. Luckily he had the idea of taking off the mask and putting the hoodie on inside out, so you couldn’t see the ears.

“Ya need help there little bud?” The man asked, concern emmient in his eyes. Midoriya stood up a little straighter, “No I’m fine, I just started to get a bit tired.” He said with a bright smile. He didn’t care about his voice changer being off, he wouldn’t see this stranger ever again. The person didn’t look happy about his answer and he went to move closer. Midoriya felt himself flinch, backing into a wall on accident. “Sorry Sir! I have to go home now! BYE!” He yelled while running past the hand reaching for him.It wasn’t a good idea to run with a random injury, but he didn’t care as he cut through streets until he got to his motorbike. He normally only used it during the day, but since he went a bit farther today to track down Mimic it was an easy transport method.
Upon reaching his living room he checked his phone again. He had 2 unread messages from PurpleCalico, which he opened

PurpleCalico: Have ya found Mimic?
PurpleCalico: I see that you read it, are you ok?
PurpleCalico: Please don’t tell me you got kidnapped or stabbed. I liked seeing your art and analyses
GreenFloof: Ah Im good, sorry some guy had tried touching me and I had to yeet myself away.
PurpleCalico: Why in the world did you yeet yourself. That sounds so weird.
GreenFloof: Yea oh well, anyways I didn’t see mimic so that sucked. Anyways you should sleep
PurpleCalico: I would but insomnia is a jerk
GreenFloof: Understandable, have a good night.

Midoriya looked up at boy in front of him surprised that the guy he chatted on and off with for a year. He let out a small smile as he picked up his bag. The teen strode forward and patted Midoriya’s hair. “Your username is fitting, Floof.” He stated while continuing to pat the boy’s hair. The smaller boy backed away from the hand, starting to head to the building. “Midoriya, you are excused for the day.” Nezu said, walking in front of the boy. Midoriya stopped and looked at his mentor, a puzzled expression allowed itself to be displayed. “Feel free to take Shinso with you wherever you go by the way, I’m sure you two will get along well!” the mouse chirped, causing Midoriya to flinch his hand. As Nezu watched his student signing angrily, he pulled out his own phone. A ding was heard from Present Mic’s phone as both the pros pulled them out.

‘What is your opinion of my student so far? I think both Shinso and Midoriya could be beneficial to each other.’


Aizawa looked at the message from the principal before asking what he meant. The principal grinned in real life and pointed to Shinso. Aizawa saw how his son was hiding a smile while looking at the pouting boy. When he looked back to his boss, the mouse shrugged and started to walk away. “Have fun Midoriya! Tell Suki thank you for the tea and doughnut” He teased while quickly walking away to his office. “Better head somewhere Midoriya, I don’t think Nezu would be proud of you if you disobeyed him.” Recovery Girl chuckled. Midoriya gave a sigh of regret while he tried to think of what to do. Aizawa had gotten bored and went to get coffee while Mic left to go teach. He turned to his new ‘babysitter’ and started to sign. ‘Why are you staying here? You can leave if you want.’ To which Shinso shook his head. “I may as well take a break day, or I’ll burn out.” was the reply. Midoriya sighed and started to walk to the UA gates.

 

Today would be a long day.

Chapter Text

Midoriya let out a silent breath as Shinso followed him. He decided to go to his spare apartment near UA, one he used when he was too tired to go home or just wanted a change of scenery. It was a 25 minute walk at a slow pace, but since Midoriya was with someone in a UA uniform he walked quickly, ended up there in 10 minutes. He unlocked the door and pulled the purple haired teen inside, startling the tired boy. He slipped his cafe sweatshirt off and put it on a coat rack standing on the door. He went to the hall closet and rummaged through some boxes before pulling out a very oversized light gray tank top and oversized sweatpants. He pulled Shinso into a hallway and handed him the clothes. “ Change into these. It would be suspicious for you to wear a UA uniform outside when school is in session” he signed before shoving the boy into the bathroom. Midoriya opened the door in front of the bathroom and rummaged in the closet. He noticed that his vigilante hoodie was laying right on his desk and his hissed to himself. He shoved it in a dresser and pulled out a completely black hoodie. As he slipped it over his slim figure he saw the bathroom door open.

Out stepped Shinso wearing the clothes which thankfully fit the boy. He was more muscular than Midoriya expected but he didn’t care. “So… What are we doing?” Shinso asked while scratching the back of his neck. The purple haired boy met his gaze before looking at a picture displayed on the wall. The smaller teen grabbed the photo and handed it to the taller one, as the boy seemed hesitant to enter his room. Shinso’s gaze looked at the long green haired women and the tall black haired man. A child was held between their arms seemingly the perfect mix of the two. The family wore bright smiles as the child held up a heart piece of paper reading a date. As Shinso looked up Midoriya was across the room picking up a few flowers that were strewn about. Shinso’s gaze took a look around the room before stepping in, waiting to see if the other boy would stop him. “Midoriya.. You didn’t answer my question.” He said quietly while sitting on the bed. Midoriya looked up and sat on a chair in the corner of the room before starting to sign “What do you want to do I don’t really care.”

Shinso let out a sigh and pulled out his phone. Midoriya slipped a pen into his hand and started to twirl it around, but it ended up dropping and made a loud click on the floor. The purple haired teen looked at the pen and the carpeted floor. His eyes drifted off to a reddish-brown stain on the floor. It was quickly covered by a black sock belonging to Midoriya, the boy moving his foot to cover it. Shinso took a deep breath and went back to scrolling on his phone. He continued browsing until he was hit by a pen on his arm. He looked up with a glare, before softening it when Midoriya looked scared. “Cat Cafe?” Midoriya signed awkwardly. The purple haired teen stood up from the bed nodding, quickly exiting the room. The green haired teen got up, grabbing a spare wallet he had and slipping it into his pocket. The small teen soon walked to the kitchen to see Shinso gaping at a wall. The other teen was looking a pictures of the younger Midoriya, one who was happy and bright eyed. There was one picture with Midoriya happily holding up a Present Mic figure, Midoriya remembering that was his first figure of the hero. The small teen saw Shinso tiredly observing him with a side eye.

Midoriya simply went over to the door and slipped on the shoes that lay there. He dug into his hoodie’s pocket grabbing the forgotten phone and transferring it to his current hoodie. “Oh wait, before you put your shoes on can you grab that brown bag there? It has cat stuff it I’m supposed to give.” MIdoriya signed while Shinso stopped looking at the pictures. “Can I open it?” The teen ask while grabbing it earning a shrug. The taller teen opened it and pulled a small catnip pillow. Midoriya chuckled as he took the bag, waiting on the other teen to put his shoes back on. Midoriya sort of wished he could have just taken a nap today but it would be rude for him to do so with his new guest. At least he didn't have to type everything on his phone, as Shinso knew sign language. Midoriya opened the door swiftly and exited it, Shinso following close behind. The brown bag was soon handed over to the green haired boy.

The pair walked through the streets, Midoriya’s pace slower than before with the tired boy easily walking by him. Midoriya kept moving away from the boy, a good 6 inches between them at most points. Shinso gave an annoyed glance at someone they passed but that was ended by a glass door being opened. The familiar smell of honeysuckle and dogwood filled Midoriya’s nose as he gave a small smile. He slipped off his shoes as he heard the patting of socked covered feet hitting the floor. “Welcome to the Neko Caf- ZU CHAN! You aren’t working today!” Rini pouted placing her fists on her sides. Shinso stared at the blue haired girl, quirking an eyebrow. “I didn’t know you worked here Midoriya.” He stated, slipping off the shoes to be in the white socks. “For once Im not working. I want cat pat” Midoriya signed causing Rini to pout again. She pulled the boy’s baby cheeks and brought him up a step. “Are you seriously signing again? Come onnnn I thought you gave up doing that here.” She complained while Midoriya pointed a thumb towards Shinso. “Fineeeee whatever, keep your voice secret from Bailey’s favorite customer.” 

Midoriya went around the counter and put in the money for 4 hours of the cat cafe. That probably was excessive but Midoriya didn’t mind. “Oi you know you don- nevermind you already paid didn’t you?” She asked before opening a baby gate used to keep the cats inside. Shinso’s footsteps could be heard as he walked into the cat area and sat down on a random part of the floor. Midoriya silently entered the room, closing the gate as quietly as possible before having cats all leap at him.

 A particular brave cat jumped up onto his curls, slinking itself over Midoriya’s head. Two other cats climbed towards Midoriya’s shoulders happily handing there. Another cat slithered into his hoodie’s pocket and perched there. A final cat jumped into his arms and meowed happily. A pout came across the cat covered boy’s face as Suki emerged to take pictures of them. Shinso merely stared with a shocked gaze before his hand was batted by a tail. “Right, so since you can’t sign I can introduce these cat’s to Shinso!” Rini chirped with a bright smile. “The one in Zu-Chan’s arms is Hypothermia. Zu found him at 3am in winter and the kiddo got hypothermia from saving the lil guy. The one one his left shoulder we call Dipp as her paws look like they are dipped in colorings. The one in his pocket is Inky, he is an inky black/brown color. Also his fur poofs out like how ink bleeds through paper. UHH The one on his right shoulder is we call Sienna because she is that raw sienna color.” Rini finished, not mentioning the cat perched on the fluffy boy’s head. “The one on his head is Tipsy, mainly because the tips of the cat are different colors and Rini found her while ‘slightly tipsy’” Suki quoted, having the camera rest around her neck. Rini held a slight blush on her face as Midoriya continued standing there.

Shinso stared at the cat covered boy, continuing to pet the two cats that roamed around him. He watched the green haired boy extract himself from the cats, Tipsy being one that was difficult to get off. The floof brought over a stool next to Shinso and took a seat. A few cats came over as Midoriya brought out the bag contents, the catnip pillow peaking Baily’s interest. She happily clawed at the pillow while laying on Shinso’s lap. Inky came over to bat at a toy mouse, one that look suspiciously familiar. Midoriya had taken out his phone to take a picture of Inky, but also took a picture of Shinso and the cat. Soon a very small kitten waddled over to Midoriya and Shinso, mewling at them curiously. Rini popped out of nowhere to hand the purple haired teen a cat wand, also plopping cat eared headbands on them. While Midoriya gave a look of ‘are you serious mate’, Shinso watched the cat god.

“Rini, how come I have never seen your quirk?” He asked suddenly. Like Shinso had gone to this establishment for like 2 years and the girl had seen his and Suki’s quirks in action. She turned around with an evil grin and leaned on a table. “Well dear Shinso~ My quirk is quite bland. It changes the smell around be depending on my mood!” She chirped before having a dark gleer on her face. The air around them thickened and Midoriya’s hand latched onto his sweatshirt. The air started to smell like a powerful cinnamon mixed with rosemary. The two scents latched together and created a smell that was both scary and effectively awakening. A teaspoon was launched at Rini’s head, Suki in the corner trembling slightly. “Oh- Um wow. So both of you have quirks with emotions.” Shinso dulley said as the air around him became breathable again.”Yep! Sorry Zu-Chan, I know you don’t like it when I do that. Would you wanna be calmed or happy right now?” The tall girl said crouching by the boy in the chair. “Calmed. Please don’t give me a heart attack.” He whimpered quietly, still grasping his sweatshirt. The air was soon a smooth lavender and vanilla scent, the cats seemed to have slowly come back out of their hiding spots.

The floofy haired duo sat silently while petting and playing with cats, but soon ended up with Shinso laying on the ground asleep with four cats on his torso. The sight gave Midoriya an idea as he brought out his phone. 

~TheAllKnowingBrat sent a photo~

TheAllKnowingBrat: Sorry Eraserhead and Present Mic, I killed your son.

TheAllKnowingRat: Are you joking? I can’t tell sometimes.

TheAllKnowingBrat: :)

PencilTopper: Welp at least he died surrounded by cats.

Pencil: SHOTA NO. 

TheAllKnowingRat: Well are you having fun Midoriya?

TheAllKnowingBrat: No. I hate being with some random person

TheAllKnowingRat: Too bad, oh well guess you have to accept it for now. Remember to bring him back at like 3:45 so he can be dismissed at 4:20

Pencil: Was that intentional by the way?

TheAllKnowingRat: :)

Midoriya let out a sweet laugh as he left the teacher’s chatroom, going back to taking pictures of the cats. An hour past of cats roaming around before Inky went to lay on Shinso’s face. The green haired boy could stop laughing as the other teen was smothered in blackish-brown fur. The teen started to wake up at the sound of Midoriya on the ground laughing as he sat up. And oh man it was a sight. Midoriya’s cheeks were flushed from smiling so much, and that smile was wide. The smaller teen was running a hand through his hair and used the other to wrap around his stomach. Shinso watched the boy, a small smile appearing on his face as he heard the angelic laugh.

Midoriya was someone he talked to for less than a day.

GreenFloof was someone who he occasionally chatted with on an insomnia filled night.

Izuku Midoriya was the person he fell in love with from hearing his laugh and seeing his smile.

 

 

And god, he fell hard

Chapter Text

Shinso had been taken back to UA. His uniform was folded in his hands and he was in the outfit Midoriya gave him. Aizawa had given a few suspicious looks at him when he first arrived, but that died down to just the occasional glance. His parents were busy filling out a few dozen reports for the USJ, which Aizawa groaned about. Yamada had taken to idly chatting about how adorable Nezu’s student was, which Shinso paid full attention to. Nezu was sipping on his tea listening to Yamada and then the mouse let out what seemed to be a groan. He was holding a notebook with gloves on, looking over the information. “This vigilante. He gets on my nerves to no end.He has been active for what? Two years now? The only step we have gotten closer in his capture is that one time he was gravely injured during a battle. But he managed to escape the bindings we had him in!” The principal complained. “Yo, Uhhhn Nezu you know my kid is here right?” Yamada causily slid in, not wanting the principal to break something. “Yea, I know. I wish Izuku was here though. Wait.. Why can’t I call him in again?” Nezu asked to nobody in particular. His question was soon answered by Recovery Girl “Because he shouldn’t have to deal with taking down a vigilante. I mean why do you guys care about Bunny so much anyways?” Nezu looked up from the notebook and had a blank face for a moment. “Why does Bunny care so much about us?” He asked back, gaining the first-year teachers attention.

“Think about it, he has seen or helped us 18 times now. Most of those being you Aizawa, so why does he care about you so much? None of this makes any sense to me anymore! I think… Bunny could just be trying to save us from someone.” Nezu stated before turning to Shinso. “Shinso, have you ever met Bunny?” The teen gave a flabbergasted noise from being pulled into the conversation. “Uhh I saw him at USJ and the Hospital, but I never talked to him.” He answered honestly. A ding was heard from a computer, that belonged to Nezu. The principal pulled up the message, gaping for a moment before turning to everyone.

‘Nice job Nezu, you are getting closer to who I am. It’s a shame that when you figure out I will be gone huh? -Bunny’

Ectoplasm stood up from his seat, quickly standing up to go and track down the message. “What? Bunny sent this from our wifi, I’m guessing he used something we couldn’t track and he destroyed it. The signal is already gone.” Shinso kept staring at the message, wondering what he had just witnessed. “Ugh, let’s leave Zashi, Hitoshi. This paperwork is done so I want to nap.” Aizawa groaned, causing the family to stand up. “Have a good day sir!” Shinso shouted while bowing, heading to the door. Yamada picked up the injured man, easily pulling him out of the room. Yamada chatted happily not expecting many answers from the tired pair. As Shinso opened the passenger door for his dad to be placed in he saw someone running by. Yamada also saw them and shouted out, the person looking over and waving. The person dropped what they were carrying and he scrambled to pick them up. Shinso went over and recognized it as the boy he fell in love with. “O-H, hi Midoriya! What are you doing here so late?” He tried acting casually while picking up a book. The boy knelt onto the ground and took out his phone, typing something as fast as he could. ‘I wanted to return all these textbooks to Nezu. Also had to give Nezu a piece of pie I made but forgot to give him this morning” Shinso nodded after he read the message, quickly helping the smaller teen put the books into a stack. “Well have a good night Midoriya.” He said while leaning to hand the boy the books. The smaller teen looked up and their noses brushed together. Shinso backed up slightly and helped the smaller teen up before running off. 

He leaned onto the car, panting slightly as he held a slight smile. “Oh who was that? And why is your face so pink?” Yamada chirped starting the car as his son climbing in. “It was Midoriya..” He said tiredly leaning back on his seat. He felt his dad’s glare land on him while he rushed to put his seatbelt on. “Oh,ok! I guess tired yourself running back here huh?” Yamada asked without realising that his son was blushing. “Yep! Just tired myself running.” He stated while slinking in his seat to avoid the glare his father was sending him. “Well, I guess we will focus on the running part of training next time. Sense you are so tired after running 20 meters.” Aizawa said in cocky tone. “No thanks, I’m just dehydrated today.” He said staring outside the window looking at the passing buildings. Yamada turned on a radio, happily letting out a held breath when he found a pop channel.

As the car eventually pulled into the driveway of the house, Hitoshi unbuckled himself and checked the mailbox. The crescent moon shone through cirrus clouds, the moon tinted a light purple from it. A small smile slipped onto his face, the wind blowing through his hair. His attention was taken back to the world by an unsharpened pencil hit his upper arm. His iris colored eyes met obsidian eyes, his hand opening the metal box. Inside there was no mail, causing him to slam it shut and walk past his dad. “Oi Hitoshi.” Aizawa grumbled while Shinso kept walking. Aizawa chased after his son into the house, barreling himself into his son’s room. “It’s a pain to run you know.” He gave an annoyed stare while taking a seat on the boy’s bed. “So what’s with you and Midoriya? It’s obvious that you have an interest in him.” Aizawa stated with no shame. “You saw right through me, huh?” Shinso chuckled, leaning on his desk. “I- I was at his apartment today. He had so many photos from when he was a kid, and he looked so happy in them. His eyes in those photos were so bright, but now they seem so… dull. Today we went to Neko Cafe, and he laughed. His face looked so happy and bright. His eyes shone a little in the light, his face was flushed from his wide smile. And god.. It was so amazing to look at. I want to help him through whatever he is going through. Because those eyes being bright is something that matters to me now.” He said while clenching his fist. He leaned so far on his desk that his forehead rested on the hardwood.

“Wow. That’s impressive considering you just met him.” Aizawa joked, standing up from the bed. “It’s stupid.. Right?” Shinso replied quietly, staring at the dark brown wood. “No, not really.” Aizawa said from the doorframe. “Just.. try to help him, his file doesn’t say anything good about him or his home life. As long as you help him out while pursuing your own goals… It’s not too selfish.” Aizawa told him, mumbling a goodnight while heading to his own room. Shinso let out a breath he didn’t know he was holding, his hand numbly tracing over petals of the nearby flower crown. He had never felt like this and this wasn’t what most people said love would feel like. The feeling of love to him made him want to help Midoriya, all to see the boy’s smile and his eyes shine. He barely knew anything about the boy, but it just made him want to know more. His heart was aching from knowing the boy had been in pain before, a pain that was great enough for the boy to stop smiling. He looked at the pink rose, its color dull and light. His hand moved to his pocket to search up the meaning of a pink rose. His search resulted in pink roses meaning gentleness and happiness. He looked at the flowers that were intertwined with the roses, not knowing what they were. Shinso gathered enough courage of asking after pacing back and forth in his room, his cat batting at him anytime he passed them. 

 

PurpleCalico: Hey what flowers are in the crown you made me?

GreenFloof: Roses and Jonquils, I’m a bit busy rn so I can’t talk sorry

PurpleCalico: That’s fine, thanks

 

As Shinso saw that they meant friendship and he smiled. The fact that Midoriya might want to be friends seemed nice to him, even though he had been pulled into Iida’s, Uraraka’s and Asui’s friendship group. He didn’t know if they were all considered friends or just on speaking terms but Shinso didn’t mind having someone to talk to occasionally. In fact it was rather beneficial being friends with Iida, as he gave Shinso the notes he missed. A notification rang from his phone and he stared at it.

~You have been invited to a group chat!~

Iida: Hello Class 1-A students! I have made a group chat for work purposes and such! Feel free to chat a little as well.

Mina: OwO whats this

Momo: It’s been active for less than a minute and you already cursed it.

Bakugo: What the hell.

Kirishima: BAKUBRO EYYY

Tokoyami: What a mad banquet of darkness, Bakugo doesnt text in all caps.

Bakugo: YOU WANT TO GO BIRD BRAIN?!?

Midoriya: Don’t fight you albino hedgehog

Iida: OH hello Midoriya-Kun! How did you get in this chat?

Midoriya: Kacchan invited me after I told him I would have to join yall tomorrow.

Jiro: Well get ready for you desire to live to die once you do.

Todoroki: What if we get a desire to live from being with 1-A?

Ojiro: What drugs are you on? Can I get some?

Iida: Ojiro-kun! We shouldn’t mention drugs or ask to be on them!

~Midoriya has disabled admin features on 20 people~

Iida: Wait how did you do that?? You cant just take away my rights when I was the one who made this.

Midoriya: :)

Bakugo: Please just dont change our nicknames

Shinso: For once I agree with the ‘Albino Hedgehog’

Bakugo: 5 Seconds to live

Bakugo: Nevermind I have been given a doughnut all is good

Mina: Wow Bakugo is able to be bribed. 

Momo: Wait nobody should be out at this time, how were you bribed?

Midoriya: I gave him a doughnut

Momo: But it is really dark out

Midoriya: So?

Bakugo: He has no fears.

Ojiro: And that is how you get kidnapped, any questions?

Jiro: Should someone go get him so he doesn’t get kidnapped?

Kirishima: Bro where are you? Mina and I can getcha

Midoriya: I don’t need to be accompanied, I'm good by myself.

Ojiro: You are def getting kidnapped.

Midoriya: Sounds festive

Tokoyami: I aspire to be like him

Mineta: He is probably a man of the night, so who cares

Iida: MINETA It’s not appropriate to say that people are that!

Aizawa: Why is this existing

Uraraka: It was for classwork, but it has gone downhill.

Aizawa: Midoriya would you like a hero to accompany you home? You live farther away than the rest of us. 

Kaminari: Oooo Is he farther out than me?

Aizawa: He has an hour long commute.

Mina: Oh danggg that must suck

Shinso: What? He lives like a ten minute walk from UA

Bakugo: What?

Aizawa: What?

Nezu: What?

~Midoriya has left the chat.~

Mina: and I oop

 

Shinso let out a small sound of disappointment as Midoriya left the chat. “Dad! How did you even get in our chat!” he shouted, hoping that he would get a response from the man 3 doors down. A ding from his phone held a message ‘Iida invited nezu, pm, midnight, cementoss, ectoplasm and I to it. Ima yeet most of them out’ Shinso held a confused gaze at his phone, muting the group chat as he watched the shenanigans go on. He picked himself off his desk and walked out of his room, adventuring to the kitchen. Inside his pops was happily humming a tune from his radio show. “What are you doing?” Shinso asked groggily, slipping a hand around the refrigerator's handle. He pulled the door open, stealing a strawberry jelly packet from his dad.  “Oh, I’m trying to bake. I have no idea how good these brownies will turn out though.” Yamada ended with a chuckle. Shinso peered over to see brownies in the oven, a tub of icing on top of a counter and a sprinkles container off to the side. “Is that type of icing good for brownies?” He questioned before opening the jelly packet. Yamada gave a shrug, “If it’s not we can just eat the icing!” he chirped while leaning onto the counter. Shinso shook his head as he perched himself across the room, a cat soon joining him. “How bad do you think you will mess up?” He asked stroking the brownish-orange tabby. “I- I am not sure! I think that it can’t be that bad.” Yamada sheepishly said, trying to push away a gray cat trying to wrap itself around the used brownie bowl. 

“Did you see the group chat yet Hitoshi?” Yamada asked, scrolling through his phone. “Yea, I mean I did send a few messages.” He said, idly petting the cat that was perched on his shoulder.  “Oh, right. Anyways, you caused a huge confusion on where Midoriya lives.” Pops chuckled, walking over to his son. “Couldn’t he have two apartments or whatever?” He questioned boredly. Aizawa had emerged from his room, given up trying to sleep early. “Yea but he has no guardians so he earns all his money by himself. It wouldn’t be logical to own two apartments.” Aizawa gave a glare at the jelly packet in his son’s hands, before going to the fridge and pulling out a mango one. “Who knows but do you wanna help me figure out this problem child?” Shinso met his dad’s gaze as the man leaned next to the sink. “Apparently his parents died at the age of 8. He went off the grid for 5 years until Nezu met him. The kid is a practical genius, keeping up with Nezu at some levels. I honestly want to see his fight capabilities as well, because if the kid can fight he would be an absolute monster.” Aizawa mumbled. Shinso met his eyes and spoke “He has a bit of muscle to him, I saw the dude without his hoodie. He is certainly fit that’s for sure.” They saw Yamada smirk from the side of the room. “Were ya checking him outtttt~?” the blond teased. Shinso groaned as he leaned back, but Yamada stopped his further teasing when a timer rang out. As brownies were extracted from the oven Shinso escaped the kitchen. As he retreated he heard a muffled question, Yamada wondering if he should be allowed to date.

Chapter Text

Bunny hopped off of a main street and ducked into an ally. Being chased by Endeavor wasn’t fun, especially when you had a nice burn on one leg and a bleeding one on the other. He breathed silently as the pro passed him, a few sidekicks trailing behind him like ducklings. He pressed himself a green trash can, thinking about the irony of this situation. As the final sidekick passed the alleyway he pulled himself onto a roof. He limped across the rooftops until he came upon a familiar road. He lowered himself after trying to control his breathing, feeling slightly dizzy from blood loss. He ungracefully fell onto his own balcony and opened the door.  He let out a string of curses as he put more pressure onto his burned leg, stumbling into the apartment. He collapsed onto the bed, feeling a jab in his side. He let out a whimper and raised his torso, looking at the betraying pen that he had left there. He threw it across the room, hearing a click when it hit the wall perfectly.

After waiting for a couple minutes he pulled himself away from his now blood stained blanket and stumbled into the bathroom. He leaned against the counter as he reached under it, searching for the basket of band-aids and other medical materials. Midoriya let out a quickened breath as he pulled the basket out and slammed it on the counter. He tossed his mask aside and rubbed off the make-up with his hands after taking the gloves off. He was glad that the mask was easily makeable after making the pattern, as this was the 3 one. The first one was pulled off when getting chased by Hawks, luckily he was falling when it was pulled so the man couldn’t see his face. The second was blown up by Bakugo when Bunny went to rescue Aizawa. He still felt the burn slightly under his skin but he paid no mind, he had gotten worse burns from the boy after all. He slipped the now darkened hoodie off of his body, throwing it into the bathtub and turning on hot water.

 He slunk in after the hoodie, red swimming around in the once clear water. A ragged breath left his mouth as he grabbed a cloth to wash away his blood. It stung a lot but Midoriya knew better than to let out a noise of pain. He poured alcohol onto the cloth and brought it back to his skin. He let out a small screech of pain, the pain absolutely getting to him. A few tears slipped onto the wounded leg, causing him to let out a loud whimper. He heard his phone ring out from the bed room, but he let it ring. It was probably Nezu and he really had more important things to take care of. After he fully cleaned the wound, he reached out to grab a sterile pad and gauze. He placed it on the stab wound and start wrap the gauze tightly around it. He let out a sigh of relief after washing his hands in the now red water. His eyes tiredly looked over it and let it drain. The color of blood didn’t bother him anymore, it hadn’t bothered since he was 11. He climbed out of the tub and pulled off his pants fully, tossing them into the trash. He put a large bandage over the now cream covered burn. He clambered out of the bathroom and shot himself into his bedroom.

On his desk laid his cell-phone, buzzing rapidly. As he limped over to it he saw Nezu’s messages, all coated with slight worry.

Nezu: What did Shinso mean by a ten minute walk

Nezu: Do you own multiple apartments??

Nezu: If not which one is your residence and which is owned by someone else

Nezu: Also why are you outside at this time?

Nezu: Midoriya, are you ok?

~10 minute break in messages~

Nezu: Kid are you ok? Why aren’t you answering your phone.

Nezu: Please tell me your okay

Nezu: Pick up your phone, I tried to call you 3 times already.

Midoriya: I’m ok nezu. I’m just trying to go to bed, so goodnight.

Midoriya slipped the phone back onto the desk, Nezu hadn’t replied to him. He tiredly rummaged in his closet, soon finding gray leggings and a the black hoodie from earlier. He put them on rapidly and went to find his spare pair of red shoes. They sat by the door and he sighed upon seeing them. They were a comforting color to him, but they were starting to dull in color. As he rummaged around his apartment, finding things to bring across town, he found a purple hair clip on the bloodied blanket. There was no blood on it, so he pocketed it to eventually give it back to its owner. He pulled the red shoes, slipped the book bag  of items (vigilante gear, stylists, chargers, wallet, phone, first aid kit and books) and made his way out of the apartment. He rushed down the dark streets and let out tired breathes as he ran. He slowed down upon seeing a Udon stand set up. His stomach gave a betraying growl as he approached it. He gave a smile to the worker as he wrote down his order in neat kanji. The person nodded, took the money and smiled. Their quirk gave them two small horns on their head, matching the hair in a slightly lighter color. He moved out of the way of the till and sat down on a nearby stool. 

“Midoriya?” A voice behind him questioned. He spun around and saw two tired figures and a long haired blond man. He gave a wave to Aizawa and Shinso, but gave a questioning glance to the blond guy. Aizawa sat down next to him and whispered in his ear. “That’s Mic, call him Yamada though.” To which he gave a nod. The family ordered their noodles and Midoriya leaned onto the counter to enjoy his own. Something in his hoodie stabbed between his burned leg and stomach, making him let out a strangled noise of pain. Yamada looked over to him worried, and spoke in a tone that was slightly stressed. “You okay buddy?” He asked, rubbing at his back. Midoriya took out the offending object and stared at the purple hair clip. He reached over to Shinso and pulled on the boy’s jacket sleeve. The boy speedily turned around, a glare softening when his eyes met the shorters. The green haired teen motioned for the other’s hand, causing the taller’s face to emit a warm glow. Midoriya placed the clip in the outstretched hand and spun back to his noodles. He started to greedily eat them, not paying attention to the family beside him. Once he had finished, he slid the worker a tip and got up from his stool to leave. 

“Oi, Kid!” Aizawa called while grabbing his hoodie. Midoriya turned around and waited for him to continue. “It’s dangerous to be out at night by yourself, want us to help you home or you can come with us?” He asked awkwardly. ‘No, I’m good, all I have to do is catch a train. Bye A-I-Z-A-W-A’’ Midoriya signed back, wiggling out of the man’s hold. The kid felt his heart pounding against his chest as he ran as fast as he could. His chest and legs were completely engulfed in pain when he had been running for ten minutes. He was positive he had reopened the healing wound by the fact he felt a liquid streaming down his leg. He ducked into an alleyway and discreetly rolled up his leggings. He pulled the fabric away from his leg to try and keep the pants clean. He pulled his backpack around to his side, rummaging through it to locate bandages. Soon his wound was rewrapped and he tossed the gauze aside in nearby pile of trash. He recklessly stood up and started the walk to his train, but as his luck has it he walked right into who he wanted to avoid. He stared up at the UA teacher and slightly side stepped. The trio looked at him with blank confusion as both Midoriya and Yamada shot awkward finger guns at each other. 

“Didn’t you say you had a train to head over to?” Aizawa asked dulley. He nodded his head up and down a few times, before straightening his backpack. “Uhm is it the 2:45 am train?” Yamada asked, putting an arm around his partner’s shoulders. He nodded curiously, before Shinso butted it “It’s 2:50 now!”. Midoriya blinked a few times, shifted his backpack to grab his phone and indeed it was past the time. Midoriya grumbled under his breath, trying to decide what would be the best course of action.

“Ya knowwwww, our offer still stands of you coming with us!” Yamada chirped, giving a cheeky grin. ‘But my uniform is at my apartment’ the teen signed back, avoiding eye contact with the people in front of him. “You can just borrow one of Hitoshi’s!” was the reply, a bright grin on the voice hero’s face. Midoriya let out a sigh of defeat and nodded, slowly following the family back to their car. Upon getting inside the vehicle he sat as far away from the other teen as possible, his face looking out the window with mild interest. His eyes were drooping and his head unexpectedly slammed into the window sometimes, jolting him back awake. As he looked around the car, trying to stay away he saw Aizawa staring at him through the rear-view mirror. The teen gave a sleepy grin, to which the other teen saw and smiled to himself. Aizawa gave a huff through his gauze, suddenly uninterested in watching the problem child.

Once they arrived at the Yamada-Aizawa house, Midoriya was the last out of the car, clutching his backpack straps with a nervous energy. His footsteps were silent as he entered the house, slipping off his shoes and shuffling into some guest slippers. “I-I er thankyouforlettingmestayhere!”  He shouted suddenly, nerves getting the better of him and letting him speak. His throat didn’t clog up immediately after saying that and he burrowed his slightly warmer face into his hoodie. He could see Yamada sporting a smile while sending over some finger guns.”It’s not a problem listener!” Midoriya shyly followed Yamada into chocolate covered kitchen, his eyes giving a look of surprise. Some instinct in Midoriya suddenly kicked in, quickly going over to the sink and finding a washcloth. “Oh yea. I tried making brownies and they kinda exploded.” the voice hero chuckles, an awkward hand rubbing at his neck. The teen didn’t pay much attention as he walked over to the oven and started cleaning. “Oii- You don’t have to do that!” Aizawa shouted from the couch, watching the new house guest carefully. Midoriya looked the hero dead in the eye and without stuttering for once “Then fucking stop me”

Shinso had started to choke on the drink he had, Yamada’s mouth was dropped wide open and Aizawa had a slightly shocked look on his face. The underground hero started to give out a creepy laugh, paired with a chaotic grin. “Well, you got spunk huh?” The boy suddenly nodded and started to sign again. ‘Sorry that was probably really rude h-u-h.’ To which the pro waved him off. “Your fine kid, but really you don’t have to clean it.” Midoriya shrugged and spun around to continue cleaning. Shinso watched the other teen clean with great interest, not even being subtle at staring at the boy. “Wellllllllll I’ma go to bed now, bye!” Yamada said dragging his feet to his own room. Midoriya bowed to him, giving him a sign of goodnight. Aizawa occasionally glanced around the room, scowling when he saw his son checking out their house guest. He pulled up his arm and struck his son’s leg, making sure not to actually injure the boy. Shinso turned to him with a glare, but his attention was pulled back by the sound of a whimper.

As the tired pair looked over from the couch, they saw the small boy on the floor face first. “Uh, are you ok?” Shinso asked, going over to the boy. The boy picked himself up, pain flashing on his face for a second before he nodded. “Come over here Midoriya.” Aizawa called, causing the boy to quickly move over. He was pulled onto the couch as Aizawa inspected his face. Shinso walked back over to sit on the other side of Midoriya, closing watching his father’s movements. “You might have a bit of a light bruise on your forehead but other then that you’re alright.” Was the final statement, Aizawa letting go of Midoriya. The boy went to stand but was pulled back down by two hands. “You’re done cleaning Midoriya.” Shinso said dully. The smaller teen nodded and tucked his knees to his chin, the slippers falling off and onto the floor. His legs were soon hidden inside his hoodie and he swayed slightly. Aizawa stood up and saw the bright digital clock of the microwave reading 3:24.

As he turned around to tell the teens to go to bed, but saw the smaller teen curled up on the couch lightly dozing. Shinso carefully stood up and went over to a hall closet and grabbed out a dark colored blanket. He went over to the other teen and carefully draped the blanket on top of him. Small smiles made their ways on the tired pair as they looked from each other and the sleeping teen. Midoriya’s face which was normally filled with anxiety and wariness was now replaced with a small smile as he nuzzled into the blanket. Shinso took out his phone and took a picture of the cute teen. “I swear if I find you checking him out or sneaking a of him again I will knock you out with this cast.” Aizawa groaned.  Shinso merely grinned and stated “Well, he has quite a nice body if I do say so myself.” His dad took a moment to compute that message which let Shinso slip into his room and locked his door.

Chapter Text

Yamada woke up at his usual time of 6:45 and started preparing coffee. He spotted the sleeping figure of Midoriya and smiled as he fixed the child’s blanket. He backed away but started to hear a whimpering noise behind him. As he turned around he looked at the blanket falling as the boy thrashed around in his sleep. Yamada cautiously approached the sleeping boy and grabbed his arm, shaking him awake. Midoriya woke up quick enough and ended up pinning the hero to the ground. His hold was strong but flexible and it took a few moments of heavy breathing for the hero to be let go of. “O-oh I- um I am sorry-y Yama-ada!” Midoriya stuttered, backing away rapidly. “It’s okay little listener- wait are you crying? Oh I am so sorry for scaring you!” Yamada said. The pro hero walked over to the teen and wrapped them in a hug, he could hear the kid freaking out about getting a hug from one of his favorite heroes. The hero wrapped his arms around the kid and picked him up, moving him to a counter in the kitchen. The kid sniffled a few times, rubbing his sleeved against his nose.

Yamada hummed a song he had played on his radio station the other day, hearing a small hum from somebody else. He looked over his shoulder to see the boy humming happily, head tilting side to side. “Listener, would you like some tea?” The pro asked softly, trying to be as non intimidating as possible. The boy nodded silently and sniffled again. Yamada filled up the kettle and shuffled over to a cabinet, pulling out boxes of tea. He stacked them up cautiously and brought them over to the teen. “Which tea would you like bud?” Midoriya eyed them carefully and looked at all the different teas, eventually picking a honey-lemon blend. The kid hopped off the counter and put the rest of the teas back, but he had to climb back on the counter to put them back.

The kettle let out a high-pitched hum, and Yamada quickly brought it to 4 mugs. As he poured the water Midoriya went to his discarded bag and reached into a side pocket. ‘I have some coffee packets that Eraser and S-H-I-N-S-O liked at the cafe.’ He offered, showing the packets of coffee to the man. “Oh! Wow I didn’t know you guys sold packets of these! I would have bought them if I could.” He exclaimed, quickly ripping open the coffee packets. The pair finished making the drinks and Yamada offered to let Midoriya make breakfast while he woke up the others. Midoriya nodded and grabbed a loaf of bread from the counter. 

Yamada happily trotted down the hallway, passing his son’s door to wake up the more problematic of the two. He swung his own door open and leaped onto the bed. He heard an annoyed growl from underneath the blankets and he tore them back. “Shoooooo~ Come on it’s time to wake upppp.” Yamada called to his husband. “Let me die so I can sleep more.” was the undigified response. “Death is illegal you know that. Midoriya made the coffee you like from the cafe~” The blonde coaxed, pulling his lover’s arm. He brought a kiss upon the man’s lips, the other clearly waken up by it. Aizawa quickly pulled his husband into a deeper kiss, which although the blonde loved it they had things awaiting them. “Come on, the coffee will get cold!” The blonde stated, jumping away from his cuddly husband. Aizawa got up and found a discarded shirt on a chair and put it over his own figure. 

Yamada knocked rapidly on his son’s door and swung it open. “HelloooO~ My little buttercup!” He sang, causing a pillow to be thrown at his face. “Commeeee onnn Shinso! Midoriya made your special cafe coffee!” He said, prying the blanket off his son. Yamada was met with another pillow being smothered in his face until his son regain his brain. “Wait Midoriya…. Oh right he came home with us.” was the muttered response. The pillow was taken to be held in Shino’s arms, being cuddled into. “Yeppppp! Now lets gooo!” The blonde exclaimed, pulling his son’s arms to be dragged to the kitchen. He ran into Aizawa gaping underneath the arch, causing both the blonde and purple haired teen to look into the kitchen.

Inside Midoriya was happily flipping french toast, another pan holding an egg concoction with different spices. He looked over his shoulder and gave a small wave while effortlessly flipping the toast. Shinso soon walked in, grabbing a white mug of coffee and took a long gulp. “Wow, this really tastes like the stuff from the cafe.” he commented looking down into the cup. Midoriya turned off the burners and signed ‘I was the one who made the blend. I know all the ingredients and special add ons for your coffee!”  He had a proud look on his face as Aizawa walked over and took the other white mug of coffee. “Hm what’s this blend’s names anyways?” he asked, leaning on a counter away from the oven. “Insomniac’s Blend” Midoriya commented, scrambling around to look into the cabinets. Yamada rushed into the kitchen and grabbed plates to place near the oven. Midoriya brought his hand to his mouth and brought it down in a perfect ninety degree angle, signaling thank you.

The toast and eggs were placed on the plates and brought to the table, Midoriya carrying all of them. “Wow you’re good at carrying things huh.” Shinso commented from behind Midoriya. The smaller teen let out a hum of satisfaction as he waited for the family to sit down. They all took their places at the table and Midoriya sat in the extra seat. They bowed their heads in thanks and started to dig into their food. “Wowwww, Midoriya you’re a great cook! I’d let you cook for us everyday!” Yamada exclaimed from across the table, causing the embarrassed teen to shift at the complement. As Aizawa carefully ate his food from leaning on his lover’s shoulder he nodded. “Yea, I have to admit you can compete with Lunch Rush, kid.” Midoriya eyes shot up in excitement and he started to sign rapidly. ‘I help him out occasionally, he is a good teacher!’ Shinso watched as the boy excitedly signed about Lunch Rush, and he honestly couldn’t keep his eyes off the boy. The boy had continued his signing rant until Aizawa commented that he needed to eat his food.

Syrup ran from one of the pieces of french toast, causing it to dribble down Midoriya’s chin. Shinso reached over and grabbed the boy’s chin, running a napkin down the trail of syrup. ‘Thanks S-H-I-N-S-O’ The boy signed before an inquisitive look came across his face. “What do you want your sign name to be?’ The boy asked causing Yamada to snicker “Aizawa and I usually have him as buttercup, but it’s fine if you don’t want to call him that.” Midoriya looked at them with a confused smile. The small teen did ‘loud’ twice in rapid succession and pointed to the blonde. “You have Present Mic as ‘Loud Loud’?” He asked, raising an eyebrow. The forest-haired teen nodded then point to the man directly across from him, rapidly signing ‘dead tired’. Aizawa blinked for a moment and pointed to himself “I’m dead tired?” He blinked again and a grin spread across his face. “I like it kid, when did you come up with that?” Midoriya raised his hands and put up 9 fingers, signifying 9 years.  

“Wait, how long have you known about me?” Aizawa asked, slightly skeptical of the boy near him. ‘My dad was Flash Fire, your old co-worker’ was the solemn response, the teen looking into syrup that had fallen into a puddle on his plate. “That makes sense, I am sorry I couldn’t do more to save him.” the underground pro said. Flash Fire was an underground hero who was strong and swift. He took out many people in a flash, but only used his fire as a smoke/flash bomb. Eraserhead had respect for his co-worker, sometimes going to the older man when he had trouble with an issue.  Flash Fire was well known for his charm, wisdom and badassery, so much so he was sort of a symbol among those who know him. ‘The man who puts light were the darkness overruns.’ was practically ingrained in everyone's minds and that was the title that belong to that pro hero.

‘It’s fine. You can’t save everyone even if you can see them.’ Midoriya replied taking another slice of toast into his mouth. “If you don’t mind me asking, what were you doing when he was attacked?” A chill went down the boy’s spine and he visible straightened. The kids quietly brought up his hoodie and shirt to show an angry burn scar. When he dropped the items he started to sign again. ‘We were going to the park to celebrate his birthday. We were attacked in the lobby of my old apartment.’ It was slow and contained a few flinches as the boy tried to sign. An audible ‘oh’ dropped out of Yamada’s mouth, which honestly just voiced his thoughts. The bushy haired kid looked up and into the kitchen ‘We need to change and leave for school.’ Was the simple thought as Midoriya pushed himself out of the chair and cleaned up his plate.

The kid’s movements were quick and the patterning of his socks hitting the floor sounded just like the cats. Speaking of which, one hopped from on top of a cabinet and onto the boy’s hair, who let out a squeal of surprise. “Razzledazzle, get off our guest.” Shinso pouted, walking over and trying to grab the cat. He heard the snickering of Midoriya as he drew closer. ‘You guys named a cat ‘Razzledazzle’?’ he asked. Another squeak was heard from him as the cat started to climb around the boy. “Right, anyways come with me Midoriya. I need to give you one of my spare uniforms.” The tired teen said, grabbing the other’s wrist to pull him to his own bedroom.

Midoriya stood awkwardly as Shinso dug in his closet, looking around the darkly colored room. He felt weird being in someone else’s bedroom, other than Bakugou’s of course. “Here put this on.” Shinso said, shoving the uniform into the other’s arms. The purple haired teen started to pull his own clothes from himself, spotting Midoriya slinking from the room. “Oi, hurry up and change.” He said, trying to to seem rude. The other nodded and ran into the bathroom, then a few moments later he came back out. The kid was fumbling with his buttons, a tie hanging loosely on his shoulders. The kid started fumbling more with buttons not paying attention and speed walking into the door. Shinso hide a snort as he tied his shoes, spotting his dads doing the same. Midoriya scrambled to put on his shoes, a bright red almost matching his still untied tie. The teens put their bookbags on and walked out and into the car, Midoriya still squishing himself far away from the other.

When they walked into the school, they caught a few stares. Probably because this student almost nobody had seen before was in the school in an oversized uniform and his goddamn tie still not tied. They walked through the school and Midoriya awkwardly hid behind the taller when entering the classroom. He sat down on a stool placed in the front, waiting with a few eyes on him. In walked both Aizawa and Nezu, the ladder wearing a bright but scary grin. “Hello Class 1-A! It’s a fine Thursday morning, right? Anyways as you notice Midoriya is joining you today. Child don’t glare at me butttt he will be joining you all day every Thursday.” Nezu said, seemingly excited as ever. Midoriya gave an awkward smile, his eyes showing how he craved death. “Have fun kids!” And just like that Nezu ran off. Midoriya sat on his stool as role was called, spinning around carefully. As homeroom ended Midnight strutted in and looked at the small bean in the stool and cooed. 

“Awweeee I see we got the cutest new student. I think your name was Midoriya rightttttt?” She walked over and started squishing his face. Bakugo sent a harsh glare at the teacher and barked out “Yea. His name is Midoriya, stop doing that to his face it’s child-” He was stopped by the small innocent smile forming on the other’s face. Midnight cooed at the child more before starting her lesson, occasionally calling out a random name for a question. As Midoriya was called he randomly pulled out a white board and wrote on that. Everyone stared in mock confusion as he scribbled his answer in the neatest kanji they had ever seen. “DAMN HE A FONT” Kaminari shouted, causing the class to break out in giggles. Midnight stared at the answer, it was quiet professional and very much correct.

As she walked out the door and shot finger guns to Ectoplasm he froze in the door. “Oh god it’s Nezu’s kid” He said as quietly as possible. Everyone stared confusedly at the duo while Midoriya swung himself around in the chair, effectively tipping it over. The kid silently sat face first on the floor for a moment before picking himself up. Bakugo quickly stood up and rushed a handkerchief to the boy’s nose, as the kid had gotten a nose bleed. “Geez, I swear the older you get the more accident prone you are.” complained the blond, trying to pick the boy up from the ground. Midoriya ended up waving him off and holding the tissue up to his nose, a slightly annoyed pout on his face. Ectoplasm stared for a few moments longer before starting his lesson, trying to stay away from the biohazard.

-

Todoroki had no idea what to think about their new classmate. He was obviously mute, or at least didn’t want to talk to class 1-A. Todoroki didn’t exactly blame the boy in the ladder’s case but everyone was pretty friendly. The kid was smart enough to earn Nezu’s interest and was at least interesting enough to keep Bakugo near him. It was odd, this small accident prone child that would randomly pop up anywhere was going to be a hero? Something about it seemed suspicious, but in a good way. Todoroki didn’t mind Midoriya’s sudden addition, but the boy was definitely odd. Was the kid actually on their side and going to become a hero, or was there something else the guy had planned? Whatever it was Todoroki would figure this kid out. After all, he had learned sign language to be able to communicate silently and discreetly.

Nezu had been watching his boy all morning. Last night was odd, Midoriya almost always answers his phone immediately but he didn’t. Normally the kid wouldn’t let himself fall to the floor, but that happened and he got a bloody nose.  He didn’t even try to leave to go to the nurse, he just stayed at his stool and answered necessary questions. When lunch came Bakugo had prevented the kid from running off and the kid struggled a lot. It had certainly been a weird 12 hours or so, Midoriya being the weird part of the time. Nezu had so many unanswered questions, but he doubted he would get them. But as Nezu went over the tapes from this morning something peaked his curiosity. Midoriya had walked in with Shinso, the two of them walking side by side except when Midoriya tried hiding behind the taller boy. Nezu had expected them to be at least aquanticences but when Nezu looked at a different camera, they had exited the same car. Nezu’s thoughts spiralled as he tried thinking of reasons that they would have been together. As he went to grab a notepad from his desk, Midoriya had finally escaped his friend and his classmates.

The kid had gone back to his classroom and grabbed his bag, awkwardly roaming the halls until he went to the bathroom. He slipped inside and stayed there, the bell rang and the kid still hadn’t emerged. As he switched a camera to 1-A everyone was chatting happily in their free period. Nezu sighed, jumping off his chair and heading down the hallways. As he stood in front of the classroom door, knocking three times before entering and class went silent. “Hello students!” He chirped, smiling until he started looking around and his student still hadn’t returned. “Oh. Where is Midoriya?” He asked giving a head tilt. He noticed Bakugo paling and standing up from his chair. “What are the chances of him getting lost?” The blond asked heading to the door. “That’s a great question! I’m sure he will be fine though so there is no reason to go find hi-” Nezu was interuptted by a slamming door. In the frame of the door Midoriya stood, knees buckling and sweat running down his forehead. “Oh Midoriya! Are you ok?” Nezu asked with a grin. 

Behind him a smaller, innocent looking girl appeared. “I’m sure he’s fine!” She said with a smile. Nezu stared at her for a moment before dropping his grin. “Suki, what are you doing here? You never come here, usually it’s Rini.” He said walking up to the girl. “Yeaaaaa wellll I need Izu-Chan’s help.” She stated awkwardly, rubbing the back of her neck. Midoriya offered a glare before collapsing on the ground. “Uhhh I don’t think it’s a good time.” The mouse offered going to his student. “Izu-Chan…?” She said slightly worried. As she kneeled next to him he shot up and onto his feet, only to topple back over. The girl brought a hand to his forehead and drew it back like it had burned her. “Geeeezzzz Izu-Chan. You should know when to take a break you’re burning up.” 

Midoriya shook his head and mumbled quietly “Mm good,mm good”, lightly pushing away the black haired girl. “Izu…. Come on, we gotta go to the nurse.” she said back. He replied with the softest little no ever, standing up for himself and walking to his stool. “Midoriya, how did you even get sick, you were fine last night.” Shinso said suddenly appearing. “Get sick easy” The boy mumbled out of breath, getting quieter by the second. Suddenly his eyes went dull and he stopped swinging around. “Let yourself be escorted to the nurse’s office.” The tired teen commanded, helping the boy off the stool and walking with him to the door. “Ah good application of your quirk Shinso! As expected of you.” Nezu complimented walking next to his student. “Now let us three be off to the Nurse! I’m sure Mic won’t mind you missing his class.” Nezu said with finality, leading the way out the door. 

Upon arriving to Recovery Girl’s office, she leapt off her chair and went to the boy. As she guided him to another room, consisting of two cots and a few chairs, he was released from the brainwashing. “Mmm okay Recove.” He mumbled again. She shook her head in denial and tried forcing him to rest in it. “No your not, now come on I need to see what is wrong with you.” The woman huffed. He tried pushing himself out of the bed, only to be held back by Suki. “Izu-Chan, stay still!” She commanded. He thrashed against her hold, only to have his arm cuffed to the bed. He glared at the silver material for a moment before trying to break out of it. “Now, let us leave this room for a moment and let Recovery Girl look him over.” Nezu said, scooting the teens out of the room.

“Shinso, may I ask why you know that Midoriya wasn’t sick earlier?” Nezu asked, sitting on a stool looking menacing. “I-Uh He was out last night and missed his train. My parents took him home with us.” He said, shrinking into his uniform collar. “Oh is that why his uniform is too big?” Nezu retorted. 

Recovery Girl came out of the room with a scowl. “Nezu.” She growled. The principal visibly flinched at the woman looking at her with slight fear. “Yes..?” He finally responded. “Can you explain to me how your student was stabbed and how it got infected ?” She asked, each word filled with anger. Nezu’s face went blank as he thought for a moment, before finally saying something. “He was stabbed?” Recovery Girl whacked him with her cane, “YES! Are you listening to me?” Nezu nodded at the question going back into his thoughts. A loud cacophony came from the next room, causing the two pro heros to charge in there. The cot was flipped over, Midoriya awkwardly hanging by it. “Did- Did you flip the bed trying to escape?” Nezu asked. The teen nodded sheepishly, a blush slightly layering his face. The two teens came up behind the pros and stared for a moment, seemingly dumbfounded. 

“And that is why you were handcuffed to it. I knew you were a flight risk. Now tell me how you were stabbed.” Recovery Girl huffed, going over to fix the bed. Midoriya shook his head, not meeting anybody’s eye. “Nezu, Shinso and Suki get out.” The women barked. Midoriya visibly paled as Nezu quietly led the teens out of the room, slightly scared of the nurse. Shinso gave one last look at the boy, his face was still red from the fever and shifted awkwardly under Recovery Girl’s gaze, looking guilty. The door was finally closed and Shinso came to his class just in time for the lesson to begin. He bit his nails and lower lip with some nervous energy as he worried about his new friend. He had shown no signs of being hurt or sick yesterday so how good was he at hiding injuries.

Chapter Text

The room was silent for a moment, but Midoriya wished it was longer. “So, tell me what happened.” Recovery Girl said, her arms crossed across her chest. The greenette turned to her then back to looking out the window. The woman huffed out a breath and waited, the room wrapped in silence again.

“Midoriya.” She stated firmly.

He didn’t budge or make a sound.

“Midoriya.” Recovery girl repeated, but it fell deaf on his ears.

The heroine watched as the boy flopped against the mattress, barely moving while breathing. Her own breath hitched and worry flooded her thoughts as she came over to inspect him. Upon going to reach a hand out to the boy, he curled up into a ball and started mumbling.

“I just wanted to be a hero. I’m sorry, I’m useless. I can’t be a hero at all, can I?”

The insults kept quietly coming out of his mouth, not ever stopping unless it was interrupted by a sob. Recovery Girl tried to unwrap the boy from himself, but it didn’t work. Eventually she noticed his nails digging into his arms and that was the final straw. She quickly walked out the small room’s door, accidentally bumping into Mirio.   

“Hi Recovery Girl! Sorry but it appears I have broken my arm again..” He chuckled. She shook her head and went to her desk, pulling out a sedative. “Stay here, Mirio.” the heroine hissed, walking back into Midoriya’s room. Upon looking at the bed there was no shaking child, and the handcuff sat limply off the bed.

The heroine sweared, going back out the door and looked at the blond student. She sighed and went over to inspect the broken arm. As she placed a kiss on the boy’s arm, it fixed itself instantly. “You can rest here but I have to find someone.” She huffed, running out of the room with her cane. She soon found the principal, pacing outside her office. “He escaped.” She stated, allowing Nezu to look up to her. “Where… Did he go? Do you know?” He asked, his ears tilted downwards.

A buzz filled the air between them, the sound originating from the mouse’s pocket.  The mammal pulled out the phone, answering it and bringing it to his head. “Nezu…. Im sorry, im sorry imsorry” The words went by so quickly that it was hard to pick up. The voice was panicked and raspy, it was too familiar to the mouse though. “Hey, hey take a deep breath for me. Where are you? Why did you run?” Nezu questioned, trying to distract the boy. 

“Our… Office” Was the reply, meek and filled with sobbing in the pause. Nezu kept talking on the phone, distracting the boy while he made the way to their office. Nezu slid the door open, looking at the shaking teen in the corner of the room, wrapped with a weighted blanket. The kid’s features still screamed at Nezu that the boy was still sick, but he decided to not bring the boy back to the nurse. Instead, he walked over to the boy, leaning his narrow muzzle onto the boy’s shoulder. 

“Hey, hey…” He cooed, moving a paw to run through the boy’s curls. “I’m sorry for throwing you into this. I shouldn’t have just shoved you into 1-A before checking if you were ok or not.” Nezu apologized, moving the blanket to be wrapped around both of them. The mouse hummed out a random tune, hoping it would distract his boy enough. Apparently it did, as the teen leaned onto his teacher, fast asleep. The boy’s face was red with fever blush, tear tracks running down his cheeks as well. 

Three knocks came from the wall, two quickly then one after two seconds passed. Nezu pressed a button on his sleeve, the wall opening up to reveal the nurse. She knelt down to the pair and placed a cooling pad on the boy’s face. “Did you get anything out of him?” the woman asked, taking a needle of medicine and slowly inserting it into the boy’s arm. “No, did you.” Nezu asked back, watching the process without squirming like most would. “When he first started freaking out, he mentioned that he had just wanted to be a hero. So I guess he tried to save somebody.” She stated, moving to the pad and turning down the temperature more. “Would it be a good idea to move him to the couch?” Nezu asked, his ears tilting downwards.

Recovery Girl nodded and the two looked between themselves. Silence was between the pair until Recovery Girl spoke out. “Neither of us can move him… Can we?” a slight chuckle came from the principal as he brought out his phone. “Mic knows about him… Message him?” Recovery Girl shook her head. “He doesn’t know about the secret office.” Silence wrapped up the pair again until a suggestion rang out. “Bakugo?” Nezu thought for a moment until he nodded. He left the secret room and went to his main desk, reaching over to the PA system.

Bakugo sat quietly at his desk, glaring a hole into the offending stool that Midoriya had fallen off of. When the purple fucker walked in he turn to glaring at the boy. “So, what makes you think you can be so close to Izuku?” He growled. Shinso raised an eyebrow and scoffed. “What right do you have to call him Izuku?” Present Mic stood awkwardly in the front of the room, not sure what to exactly do. “I have all the right, after all I’m his only friend.” Bakugo retorted, sparks flying from his hands. “Well, maybe it’s time for him to be friends with someone who isn’t an asshole.” was the quick response, causing a few to gasp.

Bakugo growled, the sparks flying off his hands grew bigger. “Is. That. So?” was the simple statement Bakugo muttered, all while angrily stomping to Shinso. Mic tried to move forward as the blonde lunged at the other, who merely sidestepped. The door slammed open, Eraserhead standing there with his hair floating. “Why are you idiots trying to fight?” The teacher sneered, Bakugo’s sparks long gone by now. Bakugo rolled his eyes, crossing his arms. “Baku hoe is just being an ass. He thinks I shouldn’t be friends with Midoriya I guess.” Was the tired teens response.

Before Bakugo could give a snappy retort, the pa system came online.

‘Will Bakugo Katsuki from Class 1-A come  to the Principal's Office please?’

Bakugo was immediately alert. When students were called it was usually announced as the main office. He quickly knew something might be wrong with his friend and quickly ran out of the room. His hands gave one final spark upon hearing some idiotic comment from the other teen, but Izuku was more important. As he ran to the office and found the wall open, which was never good in his opinion. 

“Ah Bakugo! Can you assist us with moving Midoriya to the couch? He doesn’t want to be in the infirmary it seems.” Nezu chirped. The blonde teen groaned, but quickly (and carefully) moved the fragile greenette to the couch. “So why do you smell like burnt sugar?” Nezu asked, taking a seat and running a comb through unruly green-black hair. “Eh? Oh yea that brain fucker was being a dick. I want to make sure he stays away from Deku”

“Oh. Well I personally requested the two to befriend each other.” Was the simple comment Nezu made. Bakugo held a silent anger before muttering a simple, venom coated ‘oh’. “Well thats weird. Midoriya seems to have some weird black dust in his hair. Maybe it’s charcoal powder.” Nezu stated, reaching over to grab some water filled spray bottle. “I’m going back to class.” Bakugo said, spinning on his heel and stomping out the door. Recovery Girl sighed, and pulled some gummies out of his coat pocket. “Have them eat these when he wakes up. I doubt you will get answers anytime soon.” And with that the small office only held two people, the secret door silently shutting.

 

But Nezu will get his answers, it will just take some coaxing.

Chapter Text

School had passed and Yamada walked the darkening streets. With his husband out of commision he had took a few later shifts then his normal ones. His trained eyes looked around, seeing a crawling red, blue and white colored figure into an alley. “Crawler?” Mic questioned, the figure whipping around. “Oh hi Mic! Sorry to hear about Eraser, how is he doing?” Koichi Haimawari, aka The Crawler asked. Mic shifted slightly awkwardly, he knew vigilantism was illegal but pro-heroes turned a blind eye to The Crawler, Pop☆Step and Knuckleduster. “He ... refuses to take a break from his other job but requires a break from heroics sooo he is healing.” Crawler nodded, standing up and resting against a wall. “Hey have you met the new-ish vigilante?” Mic asked suddenly, following the masked young adult.

 

“If you mean Rabbit yes, if you mean Pawn no.” He said, shifting around and pulling out a water bottle. “Yea, but we call him Bunny” Mic said, shrugging and ducking further in as to not be seen from the streets. “Pffft, that’s so childish. Makes them sound dorky.” Crawler chuckled, stretching a little. “Well I have met them. We fought a little and they helped with my injuries. Might I add that they are very good at patching people up? Because they is. Anyways, did you know their jacket used to be an All Might one? They actually gave me one that they hadn’t dyed and they were the limited edition ones from twoish years ago.” Crawler continued, his hand motions making no sense. 

 

“Wait, you keep referring to Bunny as a them. Did we get their gender wrong?” Mic asked, thinking to the police report saying that Bunny was male. “Eh..? Oh I don’t know, Pop has her suspicions of Rabbit being a girl. Knuckleduster says that their a male and I just kinda don’t care and call Rabbit a they.” The vigilante said, slipping the bottle back into his pocket. Mic nodded, before a thought came to his mind. “Give me all the info you have on them.” the blond said suddenly, resulting with a shrug. “I don’t know really anything other then the hoodie thing. I know of someone who might but Pop will have more info on her. Pretty sure Pop is west of here, so just head over there.” Crawler suggested, using his quirk to skirt away.

-

Mic quickly made his way westward, finding Pop☆Step quickly enough. “Pop!” he shouted without his quirk, the pink haired girl looking backwards. “Ah hi Mic!” She said, leaping up onto the rooftop Mic perched on. “Didcha need something?” She questioned with a smile, fiddling with her costume. “Yea, Crawler mentioned someone called ‘Pawn’ who could help get info on people, know her?” Pop☆Step straightened, looking at Mic warily.

 

“I know her but are you sure you are willing to use her? Before she does anything for you, she tests your trust.” Pop said, cracking her knuckles. Mic nodded, ready for anything. “Right she wears a mask so if the mouth on it is faced down she is already on a mission, so be wary. But you can find her in Dagobah Municipal Beach Park if she isn’t busy. She has a 15 minute hiring period there from 9 to 9:15, so her schedule is kinda strict.” Pop said, pointing a thumb to the beach. “You better get going fast if you want to catch her.” and with those final words Pop☆Step lept away.

-

 Present Mic ran to the beach, his lungs slightly burning from pushing himself. His hands numbingly fidgeting with his taser. He looked at the beach that was rumored to be covered in trash, but it was perfectly clean now. The pro looked at his watch, time reading 9:03 and he looked up to the docks. A girl with light to dark pink gradient hair stood there looking at him. Her mask held a smile and he nodded at her. 

 

“W̵e̶l̸l̵ ̴h̶e̶l̴l̵o̸ ̵H̴i̴z̴a̷s̴h̶i̸ ̸Y̴a̸m̸a̷d̴a̶” She spoke, her voice garbled and darkened. “You… know my name?” He questioned, his hand resting by his side now. “I̶n̵d̵e̵e̸d̴.̸ ̴Y̵o̷u̷ ̴w̷a̶n̶t̶ ̸m̷y̵ ̴i̶n̵f̴o̸r̸m̶a̶t̵i̸o̴n̶ ̴c̴o̵r̴r̶e̶c̸t̴?̴ ̴W̶e̷l̷l̴ ̷I̷ ̷h̷a̵v̶e̶ ̴a̴ ̶f̶e̴w̷ ̸r̵u̴l̷e̷s̸ ̶i̶f̵ ̶y̷o̷u̷ ̴w̶a̵n̸t̵ ̶t̸o̴ ̵h̴e̷a̴r̴ ̷t̴h̷e̶m̴” she continued, sitting down on the docks and tucking her flats underneath her legs. Mic gave a nod, standing closer to her and leaning on the rails.

 

“O̵n̴e̴:̷ ̶D̴o̵n̵'̸t̵ ̶s̵p̸e̶a̸k̷ ̶o̶f̷ ̵m̷e̶ ̶t̷o̷ ̴t̵h̵e̶ ̸p̶o̴l̶i̷c̵e̵,̵ ̸T̸w̴o̴:̵ ̴A̷c̶t̶ ̸a̶s̸ ̸i̸f̶ ̶I̷ ̴d̶o̶n̸'̶t̶ ̷e̴x̵i̷s̴t̸ ̷a̶t̴ ̵a̶l̸l̶,̸ ̷T̵h̵r̵e̵e̵:̵ ̸I̸n̶ ̵o̵r̷d̷e̵r̷ ̶t̸o̸ ̵s̸e̸e̷ ̵y̵o̵u̶ ̸a̷s̵ ̶t̷r̴u̶s̵t̵ ̵w̸o̷r̸t̵h̵y̵ ̷y̸o̷u̷ ̴w̶i̴l̴l̵ ̵h̵a̵v̵e̸ ̶t̶o̸ ̵m̸a̵k̷e̷ ̵a̶ ̴c̷o̴n̷t̶r̷a̴c̴t̶ ̴w̵h̵i̴c̶h̶ ̷c̷o̴u̴l̶d̸ ̵b̷e̸ ̷a̵n̸y̶t̸h̷i̵n̶g̵.̸ ̸F̸o̴u̷r̶:̶ ̷I̶ ̵r̸e̴f̴u̶s̵e̵ ̴t̵o̸ ̶k̷i̵l̵l̷ ̸a̶n̵d̸ ̵F̶i̶v̵e̶:̷ ̸A̴n̴y̴ ̷i̵n̷f̵o̸ ̵I̵ ̵k̸e̴e̵p̷ ̵f̶r̶o̴m̵ ̴y̵o̸u̶ ̴i̵s̷ ̷f̸o̴r̶ ̴g̵o̵o̴d̸ ̴r̸e̸a̴s̶o̷n̴,̶ ̸a̴s̵ ̵i̸f̷ ̶y̴o̸u̸ ̷h̵a̷v̷i̸n̴g̵ ̸i̷t̸ ̶m̴i̸g̵h̵t̸ ̷b̸e̵ ̷l̸e̵t̶h̶a̶l̴,̵ ̵o̵k̷a̸y̸?̶” She stopped looking for an answer from him. Mic stared at her before giving out a yes. “Don’t you have a contract we have to do?”  He asked, his hands moving around.

 

“O̵h̸ ̸y̵e̵a̷,̷ ̴w̶e̵l̸l̵ ̵f̵o̸r̷ ̷o̸u̴r̵ ̸c̴o̸n̴t̵r̷a̴c̶t̷ ̸y̵o̶u̸ ̷h̷a̷v̷e̴ ̸t̷o̷ ̷d̷o̴ ̸s̸o̵m̴e̶t̷h̴i̴n̵g̵ ̸f̸o̷r̶ ̶m̶e̶.̸ ̸I̵ ̴g̴u̵e̸s̶s̵ ̷l̸i̴k̶e̷ ̸b̴r̸i̴n̵g̸ ̴y̶o̵u̶r̴ ̶s̴o̷n̷ ̷h̶e̴r̷e̷.̸ ̶T̵o̴ ̸s̵h̵o̴w̸ ̷y̸o̷u̴ ̶t̴r̸u̴s̵t̸ ̸m̵e̴.̶” She said, chuckling. “I- You want to meet him?” Mic asked, shock on his face.

Time precisely 9:15 

-

Yamada slipped off his speaker as he entered his home, calling out to his family. Shinso crept from the dark hallway, poking his head out “Sup pops.” He said, going over to the hero. The blonde gave the teen an affectionate kiss on the head, which the boy tried shaking off. “How is Sho resting?” he asked, untying his boots. “I made him actual dinner awhile ago and sent him to bed, so he should be sleeping well.” 

 

Yamada nodded, going to the kitchen to see a pot of miso soup simmering. He brought a spoon  and a bowl to it, pouring his own serving. As he quietly ate his meal his son spoke up. “You… might want to supervise the 1-A chat…”
