Tired, feeling safer in his captor’s arms than he’d had in months outside them, Izuku drifted into a dreamless sleep.
And Katsuki carried him home.
Raised on a continent at the brink of war, Katsuki and Izuku's sides were chosen the day they were born. But now, as Katsuki's birth right is stripped of him and handed to a foreign prisoner, as Izuku's stolen from his home in the dead of night to fight for an enemy nation because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time, the two are forced to find common ground with each other, and end a war heading towards total annihilation.

After Izuku was whisked away by a mysterious father when his mother died, Katsuki didn't see him again for another five years. Until one night when the other boy showed up at his bedroom window out of the blue with more scars than he remembered, a smile that didn’t quite reach his eyes, and absolutely no explanation of where he’d been. Katsuki was busy training for his UA entrance exam to become the undisputable number one hero of all time, so dealing with a tight-lipped and injury-prone Izuku was unexpected to say the least.
Where had Izuku been all this time? How did he get so many scars?
And why did he have so many secrets?
AKA: A Deku villain/vigilante AU from Bakugo's perspective with cuddling, bed sharing, and so many mysteries.

The words that bloom on Katsuki’s arm are painfully familiar, to the point that he can hear the grating, wobbly voice saying them in his ear. They’re specific in a damning way, but at the same time vague enough that it could be someone else who says them. Someone he still has to meet in a situation that hasn’t yet occurred.
…Okay, so that’s a bunch of bullshit and he’s not pathetic enough to cling to desperate hope like that for too long. But he’s got some time to convince himself it’s possible his soulmate is someone else. Anyone else.
Deku’s birthday is still a few months away, after all.

Off for the weekend, lumberjack Izuku was just out to enjoy a hike in the forest when he stumbled across a cougar caught in a trap. Something in the cat’s eyes called out to him for help, so he carefully released it before going about the rest of his day.
He had no idea the cougar wasn’t just some wild animal or how everything in his quiet little secluded life was about to change.
Or, lumberjack!Izuku and werecougar!Katsuki both learn to trust and love again in the wilds of Canada.

Izuku runs the facts over in his mind, making a list of everything he knows up until now.
One. He shot a dragon. He helped the dragon by bandaging it up and sending it back home, which in turn made the dragon indebted to him.
Two. The dragon has a master to go back to.
Three. The dragon's master needs to settle the debt, which means…
Four. Izuku now has a favour to cash in from someone who may or may not be able to offer a lot in return.
Five. Izuku needs to gather information. And gathering information means spending time around the dragon’s master.
And… well… having a friend sounds nice. Even if it’s someone who feels as royal and deadly as a sword.
(It's a little bit more complicated than that).
