    Summary

    When Midoriya Izuku is 13 years old, he is kidnapped on his way home from school by a villain.
    One year later he is found and returned home with some scars, no memories of the events he went through, and a latent fire quirk.
     

    Izuku has to live a double life if he and his loved ones are to survive, even if that means lying to everyone and committing deeds that he’s not sure the heroes would forgive him for. He just needs to come up with a plan to defeat one of the most powerful men in the world, maintain both of his covers in the presence of enemies and allies alike, and hopefully not forget the “real” him.

    Bakugou Katsuki is certain that Izuku has been lying to everyone since the day he had been rescued. And he’s going to figure out his secret.

    Summary

    At a young age, Izuku Midoriya gave up his dream to become a hero. He didn't have a quirk. He was not special. He longed to be remembered. He wanted to be known. He wanted people to see him, and what he did, and smile.

    It was only at age 15 did he realize that seeing them suffer may be even more enjoyable, and that the quirk he had never known was a beautifully horrible one indeed. It was time to create art, and time to change the world forever.

    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

    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

    You wake up at UA, the highest ranked hero school in the country, with no recollection of how you got there. Unfortunately, those aren't the only memories you're missing. Still, you can't let a little amnesia get in the way of you warning the school about the attack you know will happen during Class 1-A's field trip to the USJ. After you deliver your warning, you're beyond shocked when the principal offers you a position as a TA for Class 1-A. You accept the position in hopes that you'll be able to use your Quirk to help protect the students. It'll be far from easy, but you're determined to do whatever it takes to change the students' future for the better.

    I can't believe I actually get to say this, but this fic has a TV Tropes page now!!!! You can check it out here!.

    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

    What if, at age four, Izuku didn't manifest his mother's Telekinesis, or even his father's Fire Breathing, but a Hardening Quirk instead?

    It drastically changes the nature of his relationship with Katsuki, for one. It also exacerbates his reckless streak, but fortunately his Quirk does a fairly decent job at keeping him safe from harm.

    It does not however, prevent him from getting dragged into (and occasionally causing) one completely absurd situation after another.

    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.

    Summary

    "If you can, you must." 
    Well. Izuku could raid the building and rescue its occupants. So he would. He had to.

     

    In a world where Quirks determine one's fate and people with the most useful Quirks are harvested to contribute to society, robbed of their future and freedom, being born Quirkless is a gift.

    Of course, Midoriya Izuku uses it to fight for those who can't.
