    Summary

    Izuku was never quirkless.

    Sometimes quirks hide until they are triggered. Izuku tasted death and found it lacking, every flavour bitter and lacking spice. In the moments between death and life, he gazed into the howling abyss and it followed him home. Everything he thought he knew about the world is a lie. There are monsters lurking in the dark below, always waiting and always watching, hidden by the shadows.

    They wait patiently, waiting for one to sit upon a throne of crystal madness and eternal suffering. They have waited for aeons and will wait until the end of eternity.

    They wait for Izuku Midoriya.

    Tobita (Gentle)—a teenager who lost all faith in life after losing his last hope of becoming a hero.

    Their lives were forever changed after that fateful encounter.

    Summary

    You stole it, you stole it, give it back!` tears were streaming down the blonds cheeks.
    No, that couldn’t be right, Kacchan was strong, he never cried.
    (But he did)
    Kacchan kept yelling, kept crying, but didn’t get any closer.
    (He did, and you made him cry)
    Izuku took a few steps back. He didn’t steal it, did he? He, he couldn’t have stolen it. Stealing was bad, and he wasn’t bad. Heroes didn’t steal. Only villains ever stole. Only villains ever hurt people and made them cry. And.. and he wasn’t a villain...
    ....was he?
    (I’m not a villain)

    Summary

    It’s easy to forget with his bright smiles and positive personality that Midoriya Izuku isn’t the living embodiment of sunshine.
    Or: Moments when class 1-A and company notice that Izuku isn’t quite as pure as they think he is.

    Summary

    He felt everything jerk to the side and throw his balance off before he saw anything, dust clouding his vision and irritating his lungs as the earth itself opened up to swallow them whole. For a single moment, in a millisecond's time, his wild eyes locked with Raccoon Eyes', hers alight with fear and adrenaline-fueled desperation. Somewhere in the back of his mind, he realized that it was the first time she'd looked at him with something other than long deserved hatred in days.

    And then he was free falling.

    Or
    After a particularly nasty encounter between Kacchan and Deku, the class practically ostracizes Bakugou while trying to defend Midoriya. An earthquake during an outing has all sides regretting their decisions.

    Summary

    Juxtapose. Verb, meaning: to place two things together in a contrasting manner. In this case, two points of divergence.

    Izuku Midoriya, an aspiring Hero with a useless Quirk, is heartbroken when his lifelong idol tells him to reconsider his options. He doesn't know what else to do but cry in the park until a husk of a man offers him ice cream. The man, named Toshinori Yagi, tells Izuku that he might still have a chance: If he worked hard and entered Yuuei's General Education program, then he could potentially transfer into the Hero Course if he won the Sports Festival.

    With a new path forward and a mentor to guide him, Izuku takes a very different road towards becoming a hero.

    Summary

    Izuku wants to be a hero.

    No matter what anyone says, his teachers, his classmates, or even Kacchan, he wants to be a hero.

    It shouldn't matter that no one thinks he can. It shouldn't matter what people think, or say, because the only thing that matters is if he can, and he's at least going to try. He'll find a way. Even if his quirk is what it is, he'll find a way to be a hero without pushing anyone else down.

    ...but who has ever heard of a hero who needs to borrow other people's quirks just to fight?

    (Currently on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. Sorry.)

    Summary

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

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

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

    Summary

    "Be careful what you wish for."

    If only someone told Izuku this sooner. Maybe he could have been lucky enough to be born quirkless. Yet he knows, through each painful death, that things could have been worse.

    So much worse.

    Midoriya Izuku

    Quirk: Return by Death

    Summary

    When you're a Quirkless orphan on the streets, you have to fight twice as hard for just about everything. Survival. Respect. Allies. Most of the time, you're just barely scraping by. And, for that matter, so is everyone else around you.

    So Izuku does what he does best: he helps. Sometimes that means mediating gang disputes; other times, it's something as simple as grocery shopping. It's not like anyone else will, after all.

    With so many hopes riding on him, there's only ever been one option. Quirk or no Quirk, UA or no UA—he's going to become a hero.
