    Summary

    There are few things worse than dying.

    But then again there are very few things better than being able to turn into a dragon, so I guess it balances out in the end?

    Regardless, this is the story of how I became a Hero.

    Summary

    Todoroki Shouto has memories that he didn't make on his own, motor skills that his brain doesn't know how to parse, and a love of science and mathematics and physics that means he broke down his Quirk into its most intricate, universe-bending components at the age of seven.

    In one universe, he wants to become a hero. In this one, even though he doesn't want to, he might have to.

     

    (Featuring: a rapidly developing Shoutosquad, Quirk science, headcanons of all flavors, healthy and supportive sibling and sibling-like relationships, and Dadzawa.)

    Summary

    Izuku has plans for everything.

    He plans out what to say to the cashier when ordering coffee, he plans out his homework before even opening his textbook. He has a whole ten-year plan for how he’s going to get into UA’s hero course and get his hero license fully quirkless. He plans for every wild, unlikely scenario he can think of because his anxiety gets so bad if he doesn’t go through every possible outcome, every way his life could landslide into disaster–– but Izuku never planned for this.

    For once, he doesn’t have a plan and he doesn’t have time to think of one. All he can see is Yagi-san’s lined, kind face looking resigned as he stares down the villain in his shop. Yagi-san, who is the closest thing to a father figure Izuku has ever had.

    Izuku doesn’t think. He just moves.

    (Or: Izuku saves the number one hero, gets a hero license way earlier than anyone wanted, realizes that maybe hero society isn’t as great as he thought it was, and everything just kind of falls apart from there.)

    Summary

    Todoroki Shoto will be a hero.

    ...But not just yet. Right now, Todoroki Shoto is a bitter, pessimistic, hurt teenager who doesn't want help, friends or hinderances of any kind getting in the way of his misguided goals.

    Thankfully, there will soon be people in his life who will be more than happy to drag him into a place of happiness, safety, and acceptance - kicking and screaming the whole way, if they have to. All he has to do is survive his first meeting with them and all the incredible changes that will come after.

    This is Todoroki Shoto's Hero Academia.

    (Semi-canon compliant up to a point and told from Todoroki Shoto's POV.)

    Summary

    Izuku took a deep breath while everyone started running. He took a second to clear his mind, and focused on his favorite quirks, the one he kept close.

     

     

     

    Speed. Cooldown. Strength. Jump. Endurance. Resistance. Inertia. And his favorite, Air pressure.

     

    He dashed towards the entrance.

     

    Izuku wants to be a hero.

    Summary

    “What do you mean you’re retiring?” Bakugou asks nicely, or at least as nicely as someone like Bakugou can ask. The question is phrased more like a demand.

    “Call it a mid-life crisis,” Shouto answers, like Bakugou asked him what the weather would be tomorrow, and takes a deep sip from his coffee. “I’m thinking of changing careers.”

    The world of heroes is quick to adapt to surprises, but Pro Hero Entropy’s (very premature) retirement announcement throws almost everyone for a pretty impressive loop.

    Summary

    Sirens.

    Those are for ambulances, Izuku dimly remembers. And police cars and fire trucks. Izuku always hopes it’s a fire truck, so he can go to the window and watch it zoom along the street below. He has one, in fact. A fire truck. It has a ladder you can move up and down. His mom got it for his birthday. It’s red and white, and the light on top flashes when you put the batteries in.

    “Izuku! Where are you?”

    Hands reach under him and turn him over. Big and gentle, lifting him off his back, into the air and out of the dirt. He’s folded against someone’s chest. They smell like cologne and smoke, heartbeat steady and slow against his ear. Slowly, Izuku blinks tears away and looks up. It’s a man. With half his face missing, so all that’s left is a smile. “Hello again,” he says and presses a kiss to Izuku’s hair.

    Izuku, ears ringing and limbs weak, opens his mouth and screams.

    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

    Midoriya Izuku is born a girl. Nothing really changes... except for the things that do. Small shifts become fault lines, and Izuku's journey to be a hero swerves wildly off course.

    (Izuku learns to fight. All Might, in his unwavering support, takes support too literally and develops an All Might™ series of sports bras for Izuku's training workouts. Izuku and Todoroki start a sparring club that gets wildly out of hand. Izuku and Uraraka are great friends that hold hands sometimes. It's fine.)
