She was running. That was all she knew in that moment.

Izumi didn’t know why this was happening. She supposes this was her own fault,willing to trust strangers. But then again,she was 5,what did she know?

She kept running in the forest,between the trees and bushes,trying to be quick and quiet. Keyword trying.

She should have expected it;she was short,small and didn’t have a quirk,almost like a lamb. While they were tall,agile and experienced. Like wolves.

She fell. She felt pressure on her limbs,something against her temple,between her eyes,something long and cold and d̶̡̰̰̳̞͒̊̂͝ ̷͙̬̼̯̹̱͗̏a̴̛̲̥̋̐͑̒̽̉̃͋͘̚̚ ̴͙̭̜̭̠̈̃̈̅͋̎̐̈́͛͝n̴̛̯̠̳͈͓̫̦̤̙̫̱̈́̒̑ ̵̳̼̯̯͍̣͍̹̩͉̣̫̝̖̔̌͒̋̓͗͂̃̄͠ͅg̸̨̢̛̩̭̥͔̗̞͈̜̣̲͉̀̉́̓̄̈́̾̍͘͝͝ͅͅ ̶̙͍̔̇͋̀͌̀̉̈́ế̴̙̭͖̅̓͊̔́̈́̓͜ ̶̤͎̠̎͊̐̃͋͝͝r̴̨̩̖͓̬͖̠̙̞̞͗̆̓̃̈́͝ ̸̛̱͙̖̪͕̩͐̇͋̐̽̈́͘̚͝o̷̡̢̙̳͔͎̱̝̻͔̠̳͉͗̅̐̀͑̿̇̈́ ̴̛͓͎̳̻̲̣̩̤̱̭͚̩̿͑͆̇̋̕̕͜͜͝͝͝͝ȗ̸̙̰̙̓̈̊̒̉͗͑̈̕̕͝ ̵̯̪̳̊̄̈́͘͜s̷̼̣̗̞̜̙̹̖̭̩̖̈́̀̿̍͌͛͑͑͋̕ͅͅͅ that made a click and th ế̴̙̭͖̅̓͊̔́̈́̓͜ n-

It was another hot day in Masutafu,but then again,it was the hottest summer yet. Nobody was wearing something other then tanktops and shorts.

Izumi was nobody. She would never go anywhere in such revealing clothes.

She was taking a stroll down an alley,her stripped maroon suit ends flapping behind her while her black heels clicked against the cold ground,kneelenght poofy maroon dress swayed side to side. She held her microphone/staff while she ajusted the bows on her calfs and top half of her suit. The mini deer skull on her bowtie that replaced he knot didn’t look bad in the morning and the antlers looked nice so she supposed that was a decent outfit for the day.

While she was walking she heard a ruckus,her half lidded eyes drifting to the noise. It was another villain attack,this time with...a giant shark...with dreadlocks.Quirks these days are really something,aren’t they? she thought as she walked to the front of the crowd in a collected pace.

She watched as Kamui Woods,was it? was taking down the huge villain. She brought her notebook out of nowhere and,like always, began writing everything down.

Oh,looks like he is about to use a special attack-

"CANYON CANNON!"

Or that could happen.

Bored of the "show" Izumi went back to walking her way,hearing whispers and feeling eyes on her.

"Is that her? No way!"
"SHE is the Radio Demon? She's only, like, what, 13?"
"I heard she terrified pro heros!"

Despite the comments, she made her way down the alley to her home. Sure she could teleport, but where's the fun in that? Life is so boring without fun.

Out of the corner of her eye she spotted something. Something big and... green? With eyeballs. Huh.

"This is going to be so bothersome,really."

Chapter Text

"This is going to be so bothersome,really."

“A medium-sized invisibility cloak? Perfect. Now hold still kid-" he didn’t get to finish that sentance as Izumi summoned a portal with a snap of her fingers.

"No thank you,i would rather not become a possesed corpse." She said with a little smug smile,her green eyes glowing slightly. Black tentacles exited the portal beneath the sludge villain.

"Wait,what the hell are you doing?! Let me go you bitch!" He screamed as the tentacles trapped him in a ball-like prison, preventing even a small crack of escape.

"Never fear,for I am here!" Izumi's eyes went wide with recodnition of the voice behind her, but the still smile she had made her look like a deer caught in headlights. She turned around quickly yet calmly to see the person the voice belonged to.

"Well well well, if it isn’t All Might! Colour me suprised!" She said as her smile turned more innocent while her eyes softend, putting her hands behind her back and poofing her microphone staff away. " What brings you here,sir?"

"I was chasing that villain to capture him, but i guess you had everything under control..?" He began,looking down to her and taking out the bottles he had to capture the villain.

"Izumi,sir." She said as she began pulling the tentacles back into the portal, seeing the sludge villain passed out. Weather it was from lack of air or pure fear, no one knew.

"Young Izumi. Are you injured anywhere?" He asked, looking slightly concerned as he put the villain in the bottles he had.

"No,sir. I was walking in the alley when the villain approched me, but luckly I subdued him before he could do any harm to anyone else." By the time she finished talking, All Might already put the bottles full of the sludge in his pockets.

"Well,if that’s all i will be going then! And don’t worry, you won’t get in trouble for quirk use as it was only in self defence!" He let out a boistorous laugh at the end."Goodbye!" He said as he jumped high into the air.

Well. That was interesting.

──────────────

As Izumi was walking along another path, she not only smelled smoke but saw a crowd gathering.

Great. What are those bafoons looking at now instead of helping? she thought as she made her way to the front of the crowd. She saw it was the slime villain again,goddamnit,and he has a captive too.

She sighed as she made her way past the police tape as pro heroes shouted at her to get back. She just shot them a glare, still smiling to get her point across. The heroes all cowerd, remembering who she was.

She sighed again, and snapped her fingers to open another portal. This better be worth it. If i see another villain i have to apprehend i will personally start hunting them for sport.

As she split the villain from the victim she saw it was her dear old friend, Bakugo.

...

Goddamnit.

And just then, All Might Texas Smashed the villain enough to cause rain to fall, which she prevented from wetting her by poofing her microphone staff into existance and turning it into an umbrella.

After almost getting scolded by the pros, which she avoided by just glaring at them, her everpresent smile straining with frustration. Cowards, all of them really, cant even stand up for themselves.

After walking on a diffrent road to her home, barely avoiding Bakugo, she was stopped by All Might. Who promptly turned into a skeleton and spewed blood.

"Well then. I guess my hypothesis was correct." All Might looked slightly shocked by her words,but a second later he asked her a question.

"Would you like to be my successor and inherit my quirk?" He asked, eyes determined. Then he explained everything.

"As much as i see that you would love for me to be your successor,i will have to lightly decline, sir." She awnsered him, slightly chuckling inwardly at his shocked and disappointed expression. "I already have my powers, which are powerful enough as it it. I don’t think a quirk getting mixed in would be a good idea."

She stared at him for a few awkward moments for her own amusement, her half lidded eyes and small smirk meeting his own."But! I can help you look for a successor! Or, if you already have someone in mind, i could help train them!" She finished.

"Alright then. In return, i can help you prepare for U.A. Just show up on Daghoba Beach tomorow morning. Does that sound fair?" His eyes crinckled and his smile widend as he asked her. Her smirk turned into something else, not malicious, but defenetly not innocent.

"D̵o̷ ̶w̶e̶ ̵h̷a̴v̵e̶ ̴a̴ ̶d̵e̷a̶l̸,̵t̴h̷e̷n̵?̷" She said as she put her left hand towards him, green orbs somehow glowing in broad daylight, the world around them somehow going darker and green light glowing around them. All Might knew he should accept the deal, but he felt like he shouldn’t. For his own good or something else, he didn’t know.

Before he could awnser, she put her hand back and fixed her bowtie, as she moved the small deer skull on it moved up and down before it was put in the center. "I guess that sounds fair!" She put her hands behind her back,smile turning relaxed. All Might frowned slightly, he didn’t mean to come off as rude to her.

IzumI saw that he was unhappy and put her pointer fingers on the corners of his mouth, turning his frown upside down.

"Smile my dear, after all, you’re never fully dressed without one!"

Chapter Text

They met up the next day on the beach-turned-dump, as All Might said.

"If i'm going to help you, we need to know more about eachother. I can’t help you and not know who you are,after all." Said Izumi as she snapped her fingers, making small trash around them dissapear who-knows-where.

All Might was confused. Why do they need to know more about eachother? He guessed it made scence, not everyone can be trusted these days.

"Let’s start with you." She said as she made a blanket appear out of nowhere, laid it out on the sand and sat on her knees on it. "What is your real name, and what was your quirk before you had One For All?"

All Might was kind of suprised to say the least, even though he should have expected it. "Well, my real name is Toshinori Yagi. And before One For All i, uh, i was...quirkless." He said, feeling kind of awkward talking about his past quirk status. Just as he finished, she pulled two teacups and a tea cettle from behind her back, pouring both of them some tea. They both then took the teacups and drank the tea.

Izumi perked up at this. "Oh, i'm quirkless too! I guess we're not so diffrent after all." She said as she finished her cup, pouring herself another.

All Mi-Yagi did a spit-take at her comment. How was she quirkless? He'd seen her use powers to save herself and the boy from the sludge villain!

"W-What? How are you quirkless? You can summon portals,get things out of nowhere!" He said as he put down his cup. Oh dear. I knew i forgot something. Oh well,i guess we are doing this now.

"What i have is unexplained. I was diagnosed quirkless, i have the toe joint, and we took multiple doctor visits and DNA tests." She awnsered him as she summoned her microphone staff and dialed it to play some old music.

"Then how do you have your powers now if you’re quirkless?" Yagi asked, fearing the worst. She wasn’t involved with All For One, was she? She didn’t seem like it. He hoped she wasn’t.

Izumi looked at him with sad eyes for a moment as her smile turned sad before she averted her gaze down into her lap, her fists balling up in it. "Let’s just say that... i made a r̷̡͎̳͎̗̠̗̾ͅ ì̶͈͓̫͔̘̊̂̑͑s̴̡̹̤̝̔̌̽͋͝͝k̸̭̜͙͖͍̘͠-" her eyes turned into radio static as they eminated a green glow"-and i won." Her eyes turned to normal as she blinked. "I wish i didn’t do it, but then i wouldn’t be here now." She closed her eyes as her smile turned into something similar to nostalgia.

"Anyway!-" She started as she stood up, dragging her arms down her dress to clean it from sand" -I think that’s enough of that! Now, do you have any candidates for One For All? If you do, it would be lovely to meet them!" She finished as Yagi stood up.

"I do have a candidate that i could give One For All to right now, but I just needed to have more options. Would you like to meet him?"

"Of course!" Just as she said that, Yagi began to call his successor.

A few minutes later, a face appeared. In the sand. Literally. Well,that sure is one way to make an impression.

"Hey!-" the blonde began as he slowly ascended from the ground, naked as the day he was born" -i'm Toogata Mirio!" His eyes suddenly got intense. "And who are you?" He asked as he began putting on some spare clothes Yagi had.

"She’s going to help you train One For All, along with me." Said Yagi as he buffed up. Mirio looked up at him with wide eyes. That’s why he talked like that over the phone. He looked back at Izumi who was looking at him with relaxed eyes and mischevious smile. "Are you still sure you want it to be me sir?" Said Mirio quietly, not breaking eye contact with Izumi. "I'm sure, young Toogata. Now-" he began as he pulled a hair from his head" -eat this!"

──────────────

Swallowing hair isn’t easy as some might think, thats for sure.

As they waited for the hair to digest they talked, and when it was time-

Mirio held his purple arm that was probobly shatterd. Not like it hurt much. It hurt worse.

Izumi looked at Mirio, deep in thought. Then, as if a lightbulb above her head lit up, she spoke.

"Well this just won’t do!" She began as she slowly walked over to... an old fireplace place. How did that get there? How did someone ever throw that away?! "I suppose i could cash in a few favors!" She snapped her fingers and closed her eyes as a green fire lit up in the fireplace, only to be replaced by a small, black... creature? She lifted it up by the collar and looked at it with a fond smile as the little thing opened its eyes,which were blood red. The eyes moved up to look at Yagi and Mirio, and then the creature
began shaking the soot and ashes off, which revealed a little girl with snow white hair and a barely there horn. She was wearing denim overalls with a rainbow stripped sweater and white converse shoes.

The little girl was giving a small smile as Izumi turned to the two blondes. "This lil' darlin' is Eri!" She said as she gently put the small girl on her feet.

"Hi! I'm Eri! It's nice to meet you!" She waved her tiny right hand at them as Izumi looked at her fondly. "It’s been a while scence i've made new friends!" She said, eyes wide and darting around as her pupils dialated. "Why are you all here? Why do you two look alike? I'm sorry, thats rude- oh boy this place is a wreck! It really needs touching up, which is weird because you were all here before me- oh my gosh this is awful!" She ranted as she looked and dared around like a meerkat on LSD. "Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope-" She darted around, picking up small objects- needles mostly"-nope!" She exclaimed as she lifted up the last needles she could find.

A few meters away, a casino table appeared, in front of it a man with black hair and purple scars that looked badly stiched up wearing a dark jacket with a white shirt and black pants. The two blondes and greenette looked at him, the former with suprise and the latter with a smug grin.

"Hah!" He exclaimed as he slamed down his deck of cards."Read 'em and weep,boys!Full ho-" he began only to turn around with wide blue eyes and stumble backwards,his elbows hitting the table "ooouse? What the fuck is this?" He said as he looked around, his eyes landing on Izumi and widening as he pointed at her.

"You!" He exclaimed as Izumi made her way towards him, her grin turning more smug by each step. "Ah, Dabi my good friend! Glad you could make it!" She said as she put her right hand on his shoulder.

He removed her arm from his shoulder as he spoke. "Don’t you 'Dabi' me,you son of a bitch, i was about to win the whole damn pot! " He shouted as he gestured to the money on the table that was dissapearing by the second. Izumi grinned and her eyes crinckled. "Good to see you too!"

"What the hell do you want with me this time?" He asked as facepalmed, pulling his bottom eyelids slightly down. Izumi put her hand around his middle as she gestured to Yagi and Mirio. "My friend i am doing some charity work so i took it upon myself to volunteer your services! I hope that’s okay!" As she jabbed her finger against his chest he paused to look at her with a look that screamed 'seriously?' "Are you shittin' me?" She paused for a moment, making a 'hmmn' sound. "No, i don't think so!" She said as she took her arm from around him and walked a few steps in front of him before turning around, her grin turning mischevious. He obviously got angry, of course. "You thought it would be some kind of big fuckin' riot just to pull me out of nowhere?!" At his words she only appeared more smug. "You think i'm some kind of fuckin' clown?!"

She blinked slowly, as if she was mocking him. Maybe she was, but what he didn’t know wouldn’t hurt him.

"... Maybe!" She said as her smile showed her teeth. "I ain’t doing no fucking charity job." He grumbled as he crossed his arms. "Well i thought you would be the perfect face to watch out for people! With your charming face and welcoming personality, this job was made for you!" She said as her face relaxed a bit, and pointed at the top of the walls where the stairs to the beach were.

"Don’t worry my friend!" She made her way to an old washing machine nearby. "I can make this more welcoming!" She turned to him and put her right hand up. "I̶f̸ ̵y̵o̴u̶ ̸w̸i̴s̸h̶.̴" She put her hand down and on the washing machine appeared a large beer can.

"What,you think you can buy me with a wink and some cheap beer?!" He walked closer to her as he spoke, by the time he stopped speaking he was only a step from her. "Well you can!" He exclaimed as he took the beer can and began to drink.

Throughout their banter Yagi and Mirio were just silently looking at them, their faces expressing confusion and humor. They looked at Izumi when the man left and she looked at them. Izumi smiled wide and Eri came up behind her, her little arms full of needles and old toys.

"Well i'm starved! Who wants some jambalaya? I know a great place!" She said as she began walking away, the others following her.

These next months are gonna be weird, that’s for sure.

Chapter Text

Izumi sighed as she undid her bowtie and put it on her small dresser. She just got back from hanging out with Yagi, Mirio, Eri and Dabi in the jambalaya place and she was exausted. Dear, i haven’t been this exausted scence i started training my powers.

She undid the buttons on her maroon suit and put it on a clotheshanger in her closet, and then she snapped her fingers and her poofy maroon dress was replaced by a grey nightgown that went to her knees. She was too tired to undress.

She looked around her room, remembering that it was mostly bare scence... t̶h̷a̸t̴. She had no more hero posters, exept a few of an underground hero and a hero with future sight. Her bed covers and pillows were still black from her previous... round. She shudderd at the thought. Best to not think about that.

She turned on the little nightlight in the corner of her room. She went to ber bed, laying down on her left side and sinking in it, feeling the softness lull her to sleep.

He was smart, she knew that.

 

She was just going to outwit him then.

 

"I accept." His grin turned sinister.

Izumi woke up with a jolt, still laying down but green orbs wide open, her grin straining.

She sat up, a bead of sweat trickling down her ć̵͍̓͒̈́͂͝o̶͕̗̹͋̈́̽̈́͛l̸̢̮͖̝̟̇d̴̳͚̪̰̠̅̔̀͗̈̈́̂̑̒͜͝s̴͇̞̞͎̟̙̰̋̇̈́͝o̵̢͈͓͚̻̯̜̩͓̟̣̤̰̓̑̊͋̍̔̀͒̚c̵̨̱͕̣̟̱̼̼̣̼̤͍̍̐͆͠o̴̞̯͆̈̑͝l̸̥̯̖̜̫͎͓̝̯̿̓͂͒͋̌̅͌͜͝ḑ̸̛̮̖̟̪̦̘͎̗̄̕͝ skin. She sighed and looked at the clock on her dresser, it read 5:23. Huh. She woke up earlier then her alarm clock, but she’s not complaining. More time to get ready, then.

──────────────

Izumi waved at her friends on the beach when she saw them, sunrise almost fully seeable if it wasn't for the giant pile of trash that was left.

It's been almost 10 months scence she met Mirio and Toshi-as she nicknamed him,much to his emberasment- and summoned Dabi and Eri. How time flies.

"So, this is the last pile Mirio?" She asked as he pulled a microwave from the pile and put it in a truck nearby. She remembered seeing a pink haired girl some months ago, she was digging around in the trash saying she could make so many 'babies' from the spare parts.

"Yep! Just this and the beach is fully clean!" He said. Eri was at the top of the pile of trash, laughing manically at Dabi who was shouting at her 'get your ass down!'

Just a few months ago, Mirio could barely control 5%, and now he controled half of One For All. He made it so far-

"Eri!" Shouted Izumi as Eri colided her little body against hers.

"Zuzu! Where ya' been?! You were almost late! And you're never ever ever late! What happened?!" Shouted Eri as she ran around the older girl, checking her clothes for anything that was out of the order.

"It was nothing, Eri, calm down." Said Izumi as she thought about her dream. They've been getting worse. He really wants me to remember that day. I'll have to ask ma about nightmare repelants or somethin'.

"Izumi! Wanna spar?" Asked Mirio as he finished putting some tires in the truck.

She smiled smugly as she spoke. "Of course. The U.A. Enterance Exam is tomorrow after all!"

Chapter Text

Inko was worried to death. She didn’t know how this happened, how it could happen. She was in the living room, pieceing clues as to what had gotten to this point. She was done getting statements from eyeryone in Izumi's class, including teachers. She didn’t know why kids these days were so mean. She was going to pull Izumi from that school when she finds her, and she was sure her coworker, Tsukauchi, could help warrent arrest for the teachers. They didn’t care what happened to the kids with weaker quirks and taught the other children Quirks were everything, and that really got on her nerves. They should know not to show that a police officer.

Izumi has been d̷̡̧̛̫̙͓̦̃̒́̄̋̐͊̅̂e̷̛͓͈̳̭̒͆̋͊̑́̈́̒͠a̸͙͉̙͐̈́̽̾̓̎͒͜͠d̴̢̲̤̞̼̦͎̫̜͍̬̯͆̋̇̈́͗̑̿missing for a̵̧̖̞̰̹̻̲͕͓͕̼̝̜̐͐̂̈̎́́͋͆̽͝ļ̸̧̡̘̬̭̳͔̼̪͍͚͊̆̃͒͗̊̍̓̈͆̔̇̉ͅͅơ̵̡̛̪͎͚̳̜̰̩̳̠͙̋͂͊͌͐͛̓̒̚͠n̶͔̺͍̼̼͊̌̂͊g̸͖͍̣̦͔̭͓̺̗̟͙̓͐̆͗̿͊̏̈̂͐̎̿͝ͅť̵̨̯̗͎͙͚͚̀͂̋̿̑͑̎̀̚͘͘͝ḯ̶̡̨͍̞̙̬̳̰̫̾̋̂̍̍̅͑̕͝͝͝m̴̛͓̳̣̘̻͉͓̉̐͆̓̔̈̉̓̚ͅe̸̡͔͍̾͋̉̉̒̐̂͑̽͛͌͆͝ 6 whole days. How or why, she didn't know.

She couldn’t handle losing the only family she has left. First her parents, then her husband and now her daughter? Her only child? She had to find her- no. She slapped herself a few times. Now is not the time for moping! Every second is precious and if she wants to find her daughter alive she can’t-

Knock knock knock knock knock knock

A fast knocking brought her out of her thoughts. Who could that be? Maybe Tsukauchi found clues and wanted to personally speak to her. She got up and opened the doo-

 

"Mama..?"

Inko froze. She thought she stopped breathing, that her heart either stopped or was beating so fast she couldn’t feel it.

In front of her was Izumi. In front of her was her daughter, her only family left, with d ri ed bl o od al l o ver her.

Inko shakily bent down and got on her knees. She let out the most pathetic sobs as she hugged her daughter tight, feeling every emotion known to man as Izumi hugged her back. After a few minutes spent hugging and crying at the doorframe they went inside. Inko reached out to inspect Izumi for injuries.

Izumi's light green shirt and brown shorts had blood and mud all over it, her skin deathly pale which made her frecles stand out like they were drawn with a marker. Dark green hair matted with blood and dirt had sticks and leafs in it, which meant that she was probably in a forest, or at least a closed off area where she escaped from and ran to the woods. What got to Inko the most were her child's eyes.

They were so, so dead. And somehow, they were glowing, albait lightly. But still.

"Baby, what happened? Where were you?" She asked the small girl, who proceded to look at the mother with wide green eyes and dialated pupils, a look of shock, horror and confusion on her face.

"I... i don't know-" Izumi balled her small bloodied hands into her hair, pulling on it tightly as panic set in "-i don’t know i don't kno̵w̸ ̵i̷ ̶d̴o̴n̵'̵t̷ ̴k̸n̴ ̸o̶ ̶w̸!̷" She shouted as tears started going down her cheeks, her voice somehow going distorted like an old radio was playing it. She then gasped and fell on her knees, holding her head. Inko rushed to her side to hold her as she cried and yelled from the pain, and then Inko noticed something on her head that looked like...

 

... small antlers?

──────────────

When Inko woke up, she heard eggs sizzling and tea cettle whisling from the kitchen and smiled. Her boss gave her a day off so she was sleeping in, but it seems her daughter was up and early. Today is the U.A. Enterance Exam, after all.

She put on her fluffy robe and went to the kitchen where she saw Izumi putting eggs on two plates. She was wearing black leggings, a long grey shirt that went down to her thighs and black running shoes; an overall regular outfit, if it wasn't for the fact who was wearing it. Izumi rarely wore something that wasn’t a classy dress, and the last time she wore leggings she was 7.

"Mornin' mama. I made your favorite," the taller girl said, smiling softly with and pointing to the plate "sunny-side-up and cherry tea. I was gonna let you sleep in, but i need ta' go to the train station-" she looked at her wristwatch, her grin suddenly frozen and eyes wide "-right now!" She finished, rushing over to the door where her 'light red'("It ain’t pink, ma!") backpack was, putting it on her back in a rush and bolting for the door.

"Bye, sweetheart! Good luck!" Inko called after her, chuckling at the 'bye ma!' as the door slamed shut. Honestly, what will i do with her, she thought as she shook her head, a fond smile on her lips.

──────────────

After almost being late to the train station, jumping on top of said train and scaring the conducter half to death, Izumi made it to U.A.

A brunette with flushed cheeks tripped into her arms and she catched her, but before the taller teen could thank her she was already inside the building. After they took the(suprisingly easy) written exam, they all headed into the audotorium.

Aaand she was sitting next to Bakugo. She prayed to whatever God she didn't believe in that he wouldn’t notice her. I don’t have the time or patience right now for his whining and bitching.

Present Mic's introduction was a real dead air, that’s for sure. Poor guy didn’t even get a small response.

They all ran into the testing area, Izumi already ahead of them because they thought there was a countdown. Ha. There are no countdowns in real life.

She saw a 1 Pointer in the corner of her eye and summoned a fireball in her hand, shooting it through the robot which then fell over, parts flying in all directions. She wasn’t going to waste her energy on portals for a few machines.

She did that with a few more 1 Pointers, and then some 2 Pointers and eventually 3 Pointers. Before she knew it she stacked up to 40 points, which was enough for her considering she wasn’t aiming for 1st place. Too much trouble.

She was walking around, looking at other examineers. They all had good quirks, she was internally cheering for the green haired girl that had a long tongue and was jumping around.

Then the ground started rumbling, which didn’t sound or feel good at all. Izumi saw the others running to the exit in a panic, so she followed them in a calm pace.

Then she heard a cry for help from the rubble. She turned around and saw the brunette that tripped on her, her legs under a big piece of concrete. Izumi looked up and saw a giant robot, taller then the buildings around it and crushing everything in it's path. Oh,so that't the 0 Pointer.

Izumi put up her left hand and a massive portal appeared under the 0 Pointer. Massive black tentacles came out of the portal and already going for the robot which was stopped in its tracks. She then clenched her fist so hard that her nails cut the skin of her palm and started bleeding, and her green eyes turned into radio static as she had a massive grin on her face.

The tentacles trapped the 0 Pointer and pulled it down into the portal which swallowed it whole. The portal closed and green eyes turned to normal in a blink. She turned to the direction the brunette was trapped in.

Izumi walked up to the girl and kneeled in front of her to pull the concrete up while others looked at her in shock, awe and slight fear.

"Oh my god! She’s the Radio Demon!" "I thought that was just a rumor?" "Holy cow, she destroyed the 0 Pointer! That's so manly!"

"Alright, alright, make way! Who's injured?" An old lady with a cane that looked like a syringe said, slowly walking among the examineers as they parted like the red sea before her as if she was Moses.

"Hello, Recovery Girl! Your assistance is required over here!" Izumi said as she comforted the girl who was vomiting. Probably quirk over-use, poor thing.

Recovery Girl kissed the injured girl on the leg and watched as it healed up, the girl looking dizzy after it. Izumi got up and dusted herself off.

"Well, it was swell meeting you, ma'am! You too, Chocolate Brown! See you both at U.A!" And then she started running back to the exit. She didn’t want to come home late.

──────────────

Inko was looking in worry at her daughter, who was staring blankly at the venison she was supposed to be eating. It's been two weeks scence the exam. They both knew she passed, but both Mirio and Yagi stopped talking to her as to not accidentally tell her the results before it was time. It was really getting to her, because she was so quiet that she either achieved Nirvana or she was having an existential crisis. It was unfortunately the latter.

"Honey, can you stop staring at the meat?" Inko said as she sweatdroped. Izumi snapped out of her trance and looked up at her mother. "Sorry mama, it’s just been so lonely without talking to them, even if i have Eri and Dabi. It’s just so boring." The teen groaned out, which got a chuckle from the older woman. Izumi got up from the table when she finished her mean and went to her room while Inko went to check the mail. It’s supposed to come today,right?

Izumi was rearanging clothes in her room, not having anything else to do when her mother ran into her room and gave her the letter with the exam results. Izumi was looking at it, nervous and unsure.

Come on, toots, keep it together and open it! She thought as she lightly slapped cheeks. She opened the letter and out a disk ploped on the table.

"Young Midoriya! I am here! To give you your results!" Yagi- in Buff Might form- said. "Did i get you? Hahaha!" She knew he was going to teach here. He's been accidentally dropping hints to her the whole ten months. Toshi, the bafoon, couldn’t keep a secret to save his stomach it seems.

"Young Midoriya, you did well on the written exam and got 40 points on the physical portion! That alone would be enough to put you in the Hero Course, if that’s was all there was to it! Look here-" he then put up a video of the brown haired girl she saved at the exam. "Um, excuse me? Could i give some of my points to the scary green haired girl? She's shorter then me and has bushy hair. She helped me, and i'm sure she has enough points to pass, but can I give her some of mine? I don’t know how else to thank her." She finished as Present Mic then told her that it isn’t nessecary. "-The exam didn't only have Villain Points, it had Rescue Points! And you managed to get 60, making your score 100, putting you in 1st place! You did good, young Midoriya. Welcome to your Hero Academia."

By the end Izumi had a shaky grin as tears escaped her wet eyes. She chuckled wetly as she wiped at her eyes I did it! I really, really did it!

She opened her door and looked at her mother who was waiting for her. When Inko saw that her daughter was crying she came up to her.

Izumi gave her a small wet laugh as she closed her eyes in a failed attempt to cry less. Inko looked at her in shock and then her own tears escaped as the mother hugged the teen, looping their arms around eachother.

This was her beggining.

Chapter Text

It was the first day and she was going to be late. Great.

Izumi ran around her and her mother's appartment eating breakfast and putting on her uniform at the same time. She quickly tied her black ribbon around her throat, which she only wore when she wasn’t wearing anything that covered her neck. 'Can't give everyone a heart attack on the first day' as they say!

When she finished getting ready, the girl gave her mother a kiss on the cheek and set off-

"Izumi?" Inko said, making her daughter stop exiting through the door to look at her. "Yes, mama?"

Inko had a warm smile on her face, her eyes wet with unshed tears. "I'm so proud of you, sunshine. Your father would be so proud of you too."

Izumi put on a nostalgic smile at the mention of her father. He died right before she went missing when she was 5, but she remembered him clearly. "Thank you, mama. I love you. Bye!" She said, hugging her mother quickly and bolting through the door leaving the older woman giggling to herself.

──────────────

After finally getting on the train without being late, Izumi made it into U.A.

Izumi reached out a hand to open the exesively large door to her classroom when all of a sudden it was opened by the brunette she saved at the entrance exam. She looked suprised at seeing Izumi.

"H̶e̷l̴l̵-̷"

She then got the door promptly shut in her face.

.

.

.

The door opened again.

"-̴o̸!̵"

Then the door closed again. She could hear voices on the other side of it. It wasn't nice to evesdrop, but what's the fun of being nice all the time?

"Uh, guuuuys? The Radio Demon is at the door!"
"WHAT?!" "Uh, who?"
"What should i do?!"
"Well- don’t let her IN!"

The door was promptly opened again by the brunette, and Izumi grinned mischeviously at her. "M̶a̸y̸ ̶i̷ ̷s̴p̸e̴a̸k̵ ̶n̸o̷w̶?̸" She asked.
"You may." The girl said cautiously, narrowing her eyes but putting on a polite smile. It seems the girl didn’t remember Izumi from when the greenette saved her from the 0 Pointer. Izumi pulled her by the arm so close theire noses were touching.

"M̸i̶d̸o̶r̴i̷y̵a̷,̴ ̵p̸l̷e̸a̴s̶u̸r̴e̷ ̴t̶o̵ ̵b̸e̷ ̸m̴e̶e̵t̸i̸n̶g̴ ̸y̵o̵u̷,̷ ̷s̷w̷e̷e̸t̸h̵e̷a̵r̶t̷!̵ Quite a pleasure!" She spoke as she let the girl go, going around her into the classroom.

"E̸x̵c̷u̶s̷e̸ ̸m̴y̵ ̴s̷u̸d̴d̴e̷n̵ ̶o̷u̷t̵b̶u̸r̸s̶t̸,̷ ̴b̴u̷t̵ ̴I̷ ̷r̷e̴m̵e̸m̵b̷e̶r̵e̴d̷ ̶y̴o̶u̵r̶ ̷f̶i̴a̷s̸c̸o̸ ̷f̴r̵o̷m̶ ̵t̴h̸e̸ ̵e̷n̴t̶r̷a̵n̶c̵e̴ ̶e̵x̵a̸m̵ ̸a̶n̶d̶ ̶i̷ ̶j̵u̶s̸t̵ ̴c̴o̴u̸l̸d̴n̴’̸t̴ ̷r̷e̵s̷i̴s̵t̵,̷ ̸w̵h̴a̴t̷ ̸a̸ ̵p̴r̷e̶f̸o̶r̵m̵a̵n̸c̸e̴!̵" She said as she looked around the classroom and getting a brief look at her classmates, who looked at her like she grew 57 heads and laid an egg.

"W̶h̴y̷,̸ ̸i̴ ̶h̴a̴v̸e̵n̷’̵t̵ ̴b̸e̶e̸n̵ t̵h̸a̵t̴ e̶n̵t̷e̵r̷t̶a̸i̶n̷e̵d̵ ̷s̶c̴e̷n̴c̵e̵ ̷A̷l̵l̶ ̸M̷i̶g̸h̷t̴'̶s̶ ̵d̶e̸b̵u̶t̶!̸" The greenette said as she chuckled slightly. "O̶h̵,̶ ̸s̵o̶ ̸m̵a̴n̷y̴ ̶o̶r̸p̷h̸a̸n̸s̸-̴"

"It took you eight seconds to quiet down." A voice said and everyone turned to the door to see a... yellow caterpillar?

The caterpillar opened up and, like being raised from the grave, out came a man dressed in black with a white scarf. Huh. So Eraserhead works here. Splendid.

"Put these on and head outside unless you want to get expeled. I'm not repeating myself."

And then all hell broke loose. Honestly, 5-year-olds, all of them.

──────────────

She was the first one to finish getting dressed, which resulted in an awkward silence between her and the teacher.

She was shortly approached by fucking Bakugo.

"H̴e̶-̷"

"Don't fucking touch me."

"A̵l̴r̶i̶g̷h̷t̵y̸ ̸t̸h̵e̶n̷!̶"

Then came the others. She knew that when the half-dead probably-fueled-by-RedBull teacher spoke everyone would panic like meerkats on LSD.

She discreetly looked over with curious eyes towards a girl with pink skin explaining something to a guy with red hair and eyes.

"-she's the Radio Demon! How could you not know about her?!"
"Eh, not interested i guess. What’s so special about her?
"'What’s so special about her'?! She terrorised pro heroes! She singlehandedly took out a bunch of villains and her quirk is so OP! I don’t think there's something she can’t do-"

She decided to ignore them, it’s not like they knew anything anyways.

"-whoever gets last place gets expelled." The Dracula incarnate finished.

"Hey, that’s not fair!" Izumi heard someone say, and boy oh boy was she ready to finally throw hands today.

Before the teacher could retaliate the greenette started, eyes wide with a grin that could split her face in half and head tinted slightly to the side. "O̶h̵?̸ ̶A̶n̸d̵ ̵n̵a̶t̷u̸r̷a̸l̷ ̵d̴i̷s̶a̸s̸t̵e̷r̶s̷ ̵a̶r̷e̵ ̸f̵a̸i̷r̴?̵ ̵D̵o̵ ̷y̸o̶u̷ ̵t̷h̸i̷n̶k̶ ̷d̵e̶a̴t̵h̸ ̸i̴s̵ ̶f̵a̵i̷r̶?̵ ̷T̵h̴i̷s̸ ̸i̶s̶ ̶a̴ ̶s̵c̸h̷o̷o̸l̴ ̷f̸o̷r̴ ̴h̸e̵r̴o̸e̵s̵,̵ ̶n̶o̵t̴ ̴b̶r̷a̴t̶s̴.̴ ̴F̸a̸i̸r̷n̵e̴s̷s̷ ̸d̷o̸e̷s̴n̷’̷t̴ ̶m̵a̴t̷t̶e̸r̷ ̶w̴h̶e̶n̴ l̷i̵v̷e̸s̸ ̷a̵r̸e̷ ̷o̴n̸ ̴t̷h̵e̵ ̷l̷i̴n̸e̶,̶ s̷o̴ ̷y̶o̶u̶ ̵b̸e̵t̸t̴e̵r̴ ̸b̵e̷ ̸w̷i̷l̸l̵i̵n̶g̸ ̵t̴o̷ ̷f̵i̴g̶h̵t̵ ̵l̸i̶k̴e̵ ̷t̴h̵e̶ ̴d̸i̴r̸t̴i̷e̶s̷t̴ ̵v̸i̸l̴l̷a̵i̴n̶ ̵o̵n̵ ̴t̶h̵e̷ ̵p̴l̶a̴n̸e̸t̴.̴ ̷L̴i̷f̶e̷ ̵i̵s̴n̵’̴t̵ ̴f̶a̷i̷r̵ ̸a̷n̷d̶ ̴i̶t̶ ̷n̸e̵v̴e̶r̶ ̶w̵i̵l̷l̵ ̶b̸e̵.̵ ̶D̷e̷a̸l̷ ̸w̶i̴t̶h̵ ̶i̸t̴.̵" She finished, like a badass. Everyone was staring at her in silence, even the teacher who looked mildly impressed if slightly raised brows were anything to go by.

"Midoriya," she flinched slightly, but luckly it wasn't caught by anyone (other then Aizawa, but she didn’t know that) ", is right. This school only accepts the best, and if you don’t try your hardest then you don’t deserve to be here. Now get ready, we're starting." And with that, they began.

──────────────

Izumi did good on the 50 meter dash by teleporting to the other side, much to the anger of Bakugo. She did exeptionally good on the grip strenght test, where she summoned a tentacle and easily crushed the machine, getting slight fearful and awed looks from the others. Other then those things, she did average, but with her problems this was a miracle for her.

Right as she was about to do the ball throw, she was stopped by white cloth wrapping around her m̸̪̺̫͓̣̩̰͌͗̒͘̚͠͠a̵̡̢̧̛̛̤̯͇͙̻̗̖̳̥̜̤͇̺̰̟̭̬̪͉͉̼̱̹̝̝̠͆͂̊̾́̈́̎̄̐̌̈́͛͐͒͐͐͑͆̑̈̑̽̃͆́̏̅̑̾̏̂͂̽̏̉̽̚̚͘k̵̡̧͇̹͈̠͈͔̼͉͕̲͇͓̮̈́̈͆͂̏̓̐͑̓̆̅̃̈́̈́̂͑͂̔͂̊̈͗̃̈́̓̕̕e̵͇̫̎̓͂͊́̂̒̏į̶̛̺͚͊̎̾̏͋̓̒̍̔̾̌͐̀̈̑̑͊̽̉̏͋͂̂̀͑͊́̃̉͊̓̈́̊̐̒͂͗̋̕̕͘͝͝ţ̶̠̮͍͖͚̺͈̂̿͑͒̿͑̏͛̑̃̑͘̚̕͜͝s̴͚̮̝͎͉̼̜͔̫͓̤͕̝̤͉̲̯̭̻̺͔̭̩̪̙̙̞̯͔̥̮̖̫̼̅̈́͑͛̈́ͅṫ̷̨̨̢̧̡̛̛̖͔̦̠͚̜̼̗̜̞̭͖̞̩̙̹̠͈͕̙͗̿̌̒̈̓̌͌̽̽̒́̊͊̅͝o̴̡̡̧̢̧̨̮̪̼̤̬͕̖̜̗̼̬̫̲͙̖̞̜̐̀p̵̡̨̣̙̠̪͖̻̪̟̙̹̠̳̱͎͓̹̪̭̩͓̠̍̈̄̍͋̇̊͌̾̆̓͆̀͑̏̂̕͝͝ͅm̷̼̘͚̻̈́͂͋͛á̵̢̨̠͚̘̭̜̥̜͙̖͚͇̖̟̮̤̖̙͉̯̣̺̌̔̿̆̂̅̒͛͗͆̅̒̌̅̐̓̒̉͑́̀͒̾̅̔͊͋̑̌̿̔̓̉͝ͅk̴̨̢̢̨̛̥̝̠͇̺̱̻͍̞͔̭̣͕̥̺̜̟̮̞͔͇̯̻̠͓͉̤̭̘̗͐͑͋͆͐̍͒̈̆̎͊͋̔̔̓͂̑̉̆̆̐̃̄̍̉͒̈́̀̊̿͘͜͝͝ͅe̵̛̳̺͔̱̻̩̲̹̭͍͔̯̻̩͇̣͇̗̝͎̤̥͇͓̪͇̳̾̾͒̽̿͂͐͛̈̐̆̄̃͆̑͋̈̈́̋̓͆̑̈́̍̓į̵̛̣͚̖͓̺̝̳̝̘̝͍̟̩̫̭̗̫̬̹̜͇̠͔̗̪̞̰͍͖͉̮̪͉̌̉́͒̉͗̊̃̓̎ͅͅţ̷̢̢̧̢̡̲͕̩͓͖̹̫̤̥͈̜̲͖̘̲͉̤̱̤̰̹͇̘͚̗̻̭͍͕̙̦̻͚̖̹̗̰̫͎̆̄̒̅̽̿̉̾̀̈́̏̎̑̌̾̅̿̈́̊͋̆̏͋̕͘͠͝s̴̢̨̧̡̨̢̭̱̺͈͕͕͍̱̻̮̰̦̼̥͍̘̝͈̱̜̜͈̲̏̿̍̌͜ͅͅt̵̡̤̝̤̤̗͉͚̭̹͉̯̰͖̮̻̻̤̜̠̪̙̦̬͛̑͆̅̾̎͑̊̆̊̕ͅŏ̴̗̱̰̯̠̲̟͉̄̿̋͋̏̐͒̋̄̾͒̍̉̂̎́͗̉́̇̍̀̏͑̑̆̏͂̂͆͘͜͝͝͠͠p̷̢̡̢̻̘̤̲͇̖̲̞̺͈̪̟͙̘͖̖̟̫̗̻̣̥̬̤̈̑̉̓̓́̂̋̓̆̊̓̇̒̈́̈́̆̐͋̏̾̾̀͂̊̈́̒̓̆̀̔̒͌͛̍̕͘͜͜͠͠m̸̡̢̨̧̛̠̖̥̝̘̦̘͖̼̯̯̹̬̑̔͂͌͛͆̈́̋͐͛̌͐̊̀͜͜͝a̷̡͍̦̰̙̐̔͌̀̒̿͊͗̉͛͋͑͑̇͆̆̒̆̐͆̊͑̾̆͆͆̍̌̄̚̕͝͝͝͝͝k̴̡̢̡̡̧̨̧͚̠̗̠͓̠̗̞̜̰͎͚͔̺̲̳̞̟̳̼̳͍̟̺̖̥͖̩̼̈̋́ͅ ̸̧̛͉͍̼̳̮̘̞̱̜̟̫̖̪͕̬͕̞̉͆͆̋̓͒̏ȩ̶̭̤̭̞̖̝͍̞̙̥̜̗̩̱͖̯̖̦͖̖̫̃̀̐͒͆͛͗̑̅͗̐͗̓̈́͗̊͋̚̕̕ͅ ̴̧̞͍̪̤͉͚̖̮͔͎͚̮̭̠̯̯̝͕̤͉̞͕̝͎̣̑͊͐̾̾̀̍͂̓̋͛͆͋̓̆̆̌̋́͑͋̍̉̄́̑͐̽͝i̷̧̞̇͋͐͆̂̎̏̋̈́̊̈͌͗͒͑̐̌̿̽̋̚ ̸͈̬̯͓̞̖̥̪̩̜̦͓͔͕̮͙̣̭͇̼̼̩̦̜̩̬̂̄̆̅̊͒̑̐̓̐͆͒̈́̋̈́̅͆͌͐̽̂̑͐̐̾̊͂̐͊̈̉͜͝ť̸͍̗̩̥̳̮̫͍̫̻̗͇͇͈̞̹̻̺͔̳͑̎̓͑̉̍͛̏͒̂̌̌̑̽͒̉̒̂͂̋̚͠ ̴̡͉͎̰͕̗̞̞̮̦̪͔̜̳̙̲̺̻̝̻̜͚̍͗̉̓͒̋͛̍̔̈̑̉͊̿̿̾̈̈͊̈́̈̈́̍̉͆̏̅̇̎̎̅̚͘̕̚͝͠s̸̡͖̮̤̬̫͓̲̩̻͕̱̅͂́̇̐͗͊̾̉̄̀̓͗̊̒̈́͌̂́̈́̄̈̍̈́̈̉͆͆̈́̽̚̕͘͠͝͝͝͝ ̷̨̢͚̝̦̬͓͖͈͇͖͉̤̬̭̱̪̞͍̻̳̙̻̹̪̹͓̟͍̼̗̗̬̗͕͓͓̖̰͈̯̃͛̍̍̅͒̄͆̎͋͌̋͗̓͆̽͊̆̃̈́̑̈́̏͛̍̀́͆̌̆̃̉̋̈́̈́͛̓͊̚̚͜͝͝͠ẗ̵̛̩͓͕̟͍̫́̀̃͒̄́̃̃̈́̑͋͌͗̈́͛́̆̊̚̚̕͝ ̷̧̡̧̡̘͇̣͍̼͖̗̜̺̤̰̙̼͓͖̗̪̲͆̏̂̈́͝o̶̡̙̤͚̩̣̬̥̹͉̬̰̰̼̘̠͔̳̰̳̤͖̭̻̓͑̈ ̶̢̡̡̟̬͎̫̤̥͍̖͉̜̠͍͚̭̻̪̘͔͂̂͋́̋̐̓͊͝ͅp̵̡̢͍̲̻̭̣̹͇͉̤̰͚͓̭̗̯̙̩͕̘͇̹̼̎̐͐̃̾̍̄͋͗͛.

She opened a portal from which a tentacle came out of and grabbed the ball. She swore she heard someone say 'kinky', and that person is going to get their head fucking collected if they don’t keep to themselves.

The tentacle proceeded to throw the ball at high speed, causing sand to fly and her classmates and teacher to cover their eyes.

Aizawa turned to her and showed her her score, which was 1,876.5 meters. She needed to train more, but she did hear a 'damn' from the crowd so it wasn't that bad.

She was in 2nd place at the end, which she didn’t mind. She wasn’t going for Number 1 anytime soon. The person that was in last place, a girl with invisibility, sank to her knees and began bawling. And then Aizawa said it was a logical ruse. Nothing logical about scaring literal children half to death, but I can see why it’s entertaining.

And then the first day ended, and Izumi made her way home, ignoring the shouts she heard from her classmates. She'll get another chance to talk to them.

──────────────

Aizawa made his way towards the principal's office with a scowl on his face.

He slamed the door open, not bothering with knocking scence the rat(dog?bear?) bastard knew he was coming.

"You were right. Midoriya is hiding something."

The mammal's eyes twinkled with mischef as his smile became slightly evil. Aw shit, here we go again.

He looked down at a document, with the simple word of 'Quirkless' in the Quirk Section staring back at him.

"This will be quite a year, no?" He asked, but it sounded more like a fact then a question.

Chapter Text

'Come on, come on, come on-' she thought as she kept climbing the d̴̺̒͛ë̵̝͇́ḿ̵̭̘̽o̵͉͌͋n̷͖̑ man, who was, due to his anger, a literal titan.

She was climbing up to his neck and was currently dangling off his shoulder, just barely missing a wing that was going to hit her, the dagger he gave her hanging in her bloody and limp arm. As she looked around and noticed all the fire that was around them, his massive tail swished and she gasped as it hit her, but she still gripped it like her life depended on it ị̶͆̍t̸̳͊͛d̸̥̀̑ỉ̴̗͇͗d̶͈͂̈́.

Once the tail was close enough, she jumped onto his shoulder and succeded in making herself unknown. She made her way to his neck and looked at it. She didn’t want to kill him. She looked at the a̶̫͖̔͋ṇ̵̥͛ģ̷͌ê̷̪̘l̵̻͝ b̷͖͔͑l̸̨͑͝o̴̮͈̍̓o̷̯̾͑d̴̟͂̊ dagger in her hand and raised it high.

 

And plunged it into his neck.

 

Blood poured from the wound, but it wasn't fatal. She spared him.

 

Then, all time stopped. He froze.

 

And then he transformed back into his smaller form.

"Well, that was quite a suprise." He looked uncomfortable as he put his c̶̣̰̐ļ̷̼͐a̸͍̪͠w̸̪̑s̷̢̻̚ hands behind his back. "You've outsmarted me, little doe, i'll give you that. But, a deal is a deal. What is your wish?"

She looked at him in suprise. She expected him to be angry, but he just looked... impressed? She didn’t know what to think, so she said the only thing that came to mind.

"I want to go home."

He looked at her in suprise. "Is that all you want? Nothing else?" He said, looking stiff. "Fallen and damned souls usually ask for more."

"No. I just want to go home. Live life. Be alive again." She awnsered, tears springing in her eyes, but she refused to shed them.

He took a moment to look at her. She was only a human, and a child at that, but he had to admit she bested him. He would be mad, but there was just something about her that made her herself. She was only human, but she still spared him, something no a̷̤̖͆̈́ň̴̞͆ğ̸̛͎ë̴̬̮́͆l̵͎̹͂ ̴̜̈́ḥ̵̔u̷̼̪̽̿ṁ̸̨̬̚a̴̧̝͊̓n̴͙̣̚ ̶̣̖̏̓ḓ̸̉̾e̴̥̖̅m̵̹͍͐̂o̸̹̮n̶̲͌̅ ̷̥̏̀ḡ̵̢̳ǫ̸͉͝d̷̛͕̺͝ one has done in eons.

He made up his mind and smiled a toothy grin at her.

"Alright. It’s not like that’s a big deal. You'll go back into your body and all of your injuries will be healed. Sound good?" He added

"... You don’t have to do that." She looked down, the blood from the hole between her eyes dripped on the ground. He just looked at her, an unknown emotion in his eyes.

He snapped his fingers and everything went dark.
.

But this darkness wasn’t bad. It was comforting. Like sleeping.

 

She felt like she was falling, but upwards.

 

She heard a faint whisper.

She got up, not minding the blood and mud stains on her, or the leaves and sticks in her hair.

She headed home.

 

She was in front of the appartment her mother and her shared.

 

Knock knock knock knock knock knock.

──────────────

It was the second day and already they had to put up with her bullshit. Not like she cared though.

They were all currently in English Class with Present Mic, who was currently having... a shouting match? Show practice?- Something about radio shows and stations- with Izumi.

"W̴h̷a̴t̸ ̷a̵b̶o̵u̷t̸ ̶m̵u̷s̷i̶c̷a̷l̷s̵?̴ ̶D̵o̶ ̵y̷o̵u̶ ̵p̶l̴a̵y̴ ̴t̷h̷e̷m̸ ̸o̷n̸ ̶y̸o̸u̴r̷ ̷s̸h̶o̴w̷?̸ ̴O̵h̶,̴ ̴i̵'̷d̷ ̷l̶o̵v̵e̴ ̷t̷o̷ ̵h̸e̵a̷r̵ ̷H̷a̴m̸i̴l̶t̵o̷n̴ ̶a̸g̸a̶i̸n̷!̶ ̵I̷t̵'̴s̸ ̸s̵u̸c̴h̸ ̷a̷n̷ ̵o̴l̴d̴i̸e̴,̴ ̵b̵u̸t̸ ̷a̵ ̸g̸o̶o̸d̶i̵e̶!̷" She said in perfect english that made her sound like she was born in the States.

"Heck yeah, little radio! These listeners would learn a lot about history from that! Maybe you could even guest star on the show!" Present Mic said, also in obnoxiously enthusiastic english.

"R̸e̵a̸l̸l̶y̸?̴!̷"

"REALLY REALLY!"

──────────────

It was finally time.

The time for the Fundational Heroics class.

And everyone was nearvous as shit. Evryone excluding Izumi.

"I AM-" Everyone turned turned to the voice and looked like they took a turd the size of a baby.

"-ENTERING THROUGH THE DOOR LIKE A NORMAL PERSON!" There’s nothing normal about that, Toshi, you absolute gum wraper.

There were several comments on him, mostly because he's not only the Number 1 Hero but also because he's wearing his Silver Age costume.

He said a few words but Izumi wasn’t paying attention and pressed a button that pulled up 20 suitcases.

"Get yourselves suited up and meet up at ground Beta!"

"Yes sir!"

──────────────

Izumi was the first one out, not wanting to ever waste time, and waited for the others.

Meanwhile she checked out her hero suit.

The face part was simple; only some dark goggles and a filter mask that looked like a grin.

Her suit was dark green with two black lines that started below her armpit to below her chest and down to her hip bones. She had a silvery gray belt that held a piece of the suit that would kind of look like a skirt if it wasn't open from the beltbuckle and below. It also hid secret compartments where she would store supplies, and she had on black fingerless gloves with steel plates on the knuckles. The leggings were the same shade of green, with black lines going down the sides and black combat boots that completed the look. The outfit was water, bullet and fire proof and it was armored but also flexible.

TLDR; She looked badass as hell.

The others came and All Might gave a speach feat. interrupting students and a nerd who isn’t ready for this (read: All Might).

When teams were being chosen, Izumi ended up with Chocolate Brown on Team A. She's the only one the greenette remotely knows anyway.

"Team A versus Team D!"

And on the seventh day, God said: 'Make Izumi fucking suffer.'

The girl's smile froze on her face, her eyes wide open making her look like a deer caught in headlights. She couldn't believe it. No. Never. Nuh-uh. Nada. Nope.

She slowly looked over at Bakugo, who looked too evilly exited for a hero.

Shit.

──────────────

"So, do you have a plan in mind?" The brunette asked as she crouched down.

"I̵n̷t̸e̷r̸e̶s̵t̶e̵d̶ ̷i̶n̸ ̷w̷h̶a̸t̶ ̴i̸ ̴h̶a̶v̷e̷ ̶t̸o̴ ̷s̶a̵y̴,̶ ̷C̴h̴o̵c̶o̶l̵a̸t̵e̷ ̴B̵r̷o̴w̶n̶?̷" She questioned while she had a loopsided smirk and half lidded eyes that made her look not PG13, which made the other girl turn pink.

"W-y-yes, of yourse! I mean, of course, because we need to beat the other team!" Sputterd the girl. "Wait, why did you call me Chocolate Brown?" She followed, looking confused and tilting her head to the side in a cute way.

"B̸e̵c̵a̵u̵s̷e̸ ̶y̷o̸u̷r̸ ̸h̸a̴i̶r̴ ̵a̵n̸d̸ ̴e̵y̴e̶s̵ ̴a̸r̴e̸ ̴b̸r̸o̷w̷n̵.̶ ̸A̸n̸d̵ ̸y̷o̵u̶’̴r̵e̵ ̶a̸s̶ ̷s̷w̷e̶e̴t̵ ̷a̵s̷ ̷c̸h̶o̴c̵o̸l̵a̶t̵e̷.̴" She winked making her teammate sputter. "A̸l̶l̸ ̴r̷i̷g̵h̴t̶,̷ ̷t̸h̷i̴s̸ ̸i̸s̵ ̶w̵h̶a̶t̴ ̸w̶e̷'̴r̶e̵ ̶g̸o̷i̶n̷g̵ ̴t̸o̴ ̸d̸o̷.̷.̶.̵."

──────────────

Izumi was walking down the corridor, looking for trouble or waiting for it to find her.

BOOM

"DEKU!"

There's her headache. Okay, let's get this over with.

She made her way around the blonde figure and started running.

BOOM

"GET BACK HERE YOU PIECE OF SHIT!"

She kept running and eventually crouched behind a corner, hiding from him.

"Hey, CB, how we doin'?" She whispered into the small microphone. She made her voice normal, her teammate wouldn’t know what she said if it was staticy.

"I found Iida, he's on the fifth floor."

"Good. I'm going to lose the other one and then i will join you. If not, you know Plan B."

"Got it."

She had a good teammate. If it’s going to be like this when they all graduate, she'd be happ-

BOOM

Oh well. A girl can dream.

She got up and faced the angry opponent that’s been haunting her.

"You think you can run away and hide from me, Deku?!"

She said notinng as he continued screaming. He lunged at her and she barely dodged him.

"Stop dodging and fight me!" He shouted as he aimed a hand at her, sparks flying from it.

"S̴t̶o̸p̷ ̵t̷r̷y̷i̴n̵g̴ ̶t̶o̷ ̶k̷i̸l̴l̷ ̵m̸e̸ ̷a̷n̶d̸ ̸w̵e̶'̷l̷l̶ ̷f̷i̴g̵h̴t̶ ̵l̴a̵t̶e̶r̵!̷" She shouted back, tired of him and his additude. He flinched slightly, he didn’t know why her voice changed. Why she changed. And what happened for it to be this way between them.

He looked at her, anger and a small bit of guilt in his eyes. Both of them stood still, a small nervous energy between them. They hadn’t seen eachother since she was pulled from kindergarden to be homeschooled. They hadn’t seen eachother in a decade. And the first thing they do is fight.

Izumi ran away.

She had to.

And then there was an explosion.

Her face was wet and her vision blurry, she felt her smile twich slight but she kept running to the fifth floor.

Suddently, he was in front of her. He said something about a sweat buildup and then she heard Toshi, but her heart felt too heavy to hear them.

In a moment, she flipped the blonde over and knocked him out by hitting him across the head with the steel plates on her knuckles and then tied him up with the capture tape.

"CB, are you there?" Why did her voice sound so chocked up and hoarse?

"I'm here. Are you ok?"

She got quiet for a second.

"I'm f̵i̵n̴e̵.̷ Do you remember the plan? I knocked Ka-Bakugo out."

"...Yes. He hasn't spotted me yet. Are you coming?" Her voice sounded concerned, but Izumi didn’t dwell on it.

"Yes. Stay right there."

──────────────

Eventually she and CB-Uraraka- won.

It was a bitter victory.

She ignored the blonde for the rest of the day they had left and avoided him.

She didn’t imagine her past would catch up to her.

But she was alone in this.

As it should be.

But why does her heart wail so painfully?

──────────────

She was walking home when she heard them.

"Hey! Wait up!" She turned around to find C-Uraraka and Iida waiting for her. Her smile was tired and her eyes crinkled in sadness, but she sparked to life when she saw her classmates.

"H̴e̴l̶l̸o̶.̸" She greeted them meekly.

"We saw how sad you looked and wanted to cheer you up. Do you wanna hang out with us Deku-chan?"

She sputterd. "D̷e̴k̷u̶-̵c̸h̴a̶n̶?̵"

"Yeah! You’re Deku, Deku Midoriya," she tensed for a second but relaxed ", right?"

"N̸o̷.̴ ̸D̴e̷k̷u̶ ̵i̸s̴n̴’̵t̵ ̷m̴y̶ ̸n̷a̶m̶e̴.̵ ̶I̴t̴'̷s̸ ̷I̴z̷u̴m̷i̶,̸ ̸a̸n̵d̷ ̸p̵l̵e̷a̴s̵e̴ ̴c̸a̴l̸l̶ ̵m̶e̶ ̸t̸h̶a̵t̴ ̴C̶-̸U̵r̵a̵r̶a̸k̸a̴.̸ She said with a timid smile in a lightly pained voice. She hoped they wouldn’t question her why.

"Okay! Oh, and you can call me CB. It's really cute!" The other girl squeeled.

"Why do you insist being called 'Izumi'?" Questioned Iida, who has been listening on the conversation.

".̸.̴.̶I̷t̸’̴s̸ ̵b̷e̶t̴t̴e̵r̴ ̴t̵h̴a̷t̶ ̷w̸a̶y̷.̶" She awnsered crypticly, not really giving them an awnser but not full-on awnsering the question.

"Ok, enough of all of the sad stuff!" Pouted CB, puffing up her cheeks.

They all laughed after a moment. They talked about things, school, Periwinkle's glasses(he sputterd at the nickname) and U.A.

 

Strangely, she felt lighter.
