    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

    AU. Midoriya Izuku shouldn't be surprised he ended up like this: hiding the secret of One for All from his own father, the notorious villain Dragon. The path to being a hero is a hard one.

    Or; Izuku is an aspiring hero forced to work for his father’s villain organization. Then he runs into All Might.

    Villainry, as Izuku's father liked to say, ran in the blood. It liked to stalk in the shadows and hook its claws into you when you least expected it. It liked to remind Izuku specifically that he could never really be a hero the way he’d always dreamed of.

    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.

    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

    Midoriya Izuku goes missing as a child. No villain is ever held accountable, no one ever brings his mother any answers. For ten years, the only people who remember the quiet, Quirkless boy are Inko and Bakugo Katsuki. They both feel his loss in different, inexplicable ways.

    Eraserhead's been on the hunt for an elusive villain only known by the press as 'Ghost'. No fingerprints, blood, or evidence of any kind can ever be found at the scene of the crimes. All of the villain's cases inevitably run cold.

    Izuku wishes he'd been born Quirkless after all. Maybe then, he could've believed in heroes. Maybe then, he could've turned into someone good.

    Summary

    Izuku's Quirk manifest at the tender age of five. It's strange that he would have a fire Quirk given what his mother's Quirk is, but he initially chalks it up to genetics on his father's side.

    Then there's a familiar stranger in the kitchen, and everything changes.

    Summary

    In the wake of All Might's rejection, Izuku goes with Sensei. The League gained a new member, and the future shifted.

    As Kurogiri knows, Sensei has many quirks and many plans, embodied in those he chooses to invite into the League. As someone near the centre of the League, Kurogiri knows more about their aspects than anyone except Sensei. He knows how the ancient man covers every angle of the situation, even the ones no one else saw coming. Sensei was always prepared to play the long game.

    Tomura Shigaraki was one plan. The obvious plan. The one everyone focuses on.

    Izuku Midoriya was an unexpected plan, a hidden plan, one that bides its time before striking when you least expect it.

    Both men have power and purpose, but only one needs to succeed. Kurogiri watches both plans unfold, from their joined beginnings, through their diversion, until they meet again, in a world they changed.

    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.)
