    Summary

    Mid-Season-One Zuko is held ransom by Chief Hakoda. Ozai's replies to the Water Tribe's demands are A+ Parenting. Hakoda is… deeply concerned, for this son that isn't his, and who might be safer among enemies than with his own father.

    Summary

    “Yo, Izuku-kun!” The boy smiles down at him- curse his short height- slinging his arm around the only marginally shorter teen to his side. “Me’n otouto here were wondering when you were going to show up!”

    The short teen smiles bashfully and brushes a hand through his curly green hair.

    Yep. You read that right: green.

    Izuku, along with his senpai Amari Kazuo, were among the first wave of people in Japan to be what most people were calling “Quirked.” Thankfully for himself, his “quirk” just seemed to be a mutation- hence the greenish hair. It might be much more visible than other “quirked” people, but it was mild in the long run, especially for something that he could pass off as hair dye.

    Summary

    The brighter the light, the darker the shadows. And in a super-powered society, those shadows are dark indeed. But whilst the world desperately trained more and more heroes, making that light brighter and brighter, the prestigious hero school, UA, had another idea. Why not tackle the problem at its source?

    And so was born the infamous class 1-A. Would-be criminals from all over the country were selected, and a group of twenty now roam the halls of the school, alongside the heroes of the next generation.

    Last year, the entirety of Mr Aizawa’s class A graduated. But this year was different. No, he didn’t believe they would all graduate back into society like the classes before them. He believed they could become something bigger. That was why, with gritted teeth and a manic smile, Eraser Head turned to his new class of students and said:

    "You aren't villains - you never were, and you never will be. But you can take that fire inside of you and put it to good use. We're in a hero school, aren't we? Well then...

    "Let's be heroes."

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku was going to be a quirkless hero.

    Until he met All Might.

    Then he decided to be a more or less quirkless hero.

     

    AKA
    One for All is sentient, stubborn, and an asshole. Izuku just wants to be a hero who saves as many people as possible, but having a vaguely homicidal and moderately sadistic quirk given to him isn't exactly helping most of the time. At least - between the quirk, the mad scientist, a purple panda, and a set of clothes - he isn't lonely anymore.

    Summary

    In another life, Orochimaru never leaves Konoha, opting to remain within the village that equally reveres and reviles him. Fighting a bitter battle against forces within the village that are more influential and well-positioned, he finds himself gifted with one last shining opportunity: three children, a team of genin, handed to him because Konoha has no better choice. Orochimaru agrees to become a jounin-sensei for the first and the last time, taking on the next generation's Team Seven: Uchiha Sasuke, Nara Shikamaru, and Uzumaki Naruto.

    [ A gradual exploration of the author's very liberal Naruto headcanon, with a good!Orochimaru (well, sorta good) who eventually becomes the Godaime Hokage. Lots of chakra theory, cool jutsu, in-depth backstories, character development, political intrigue, and den mother Orochimaru feels! Also featuring: BAMF baby Team 7! Be prepared to suspend your disbelief; this will be another one of my long-running intense worldbuilding AUs. Let's go have fun! ]

    Summary

    Sometimes the hardest battle isn’t enough to change a heart, sometimes all the war and blood in the world isn’t enough to shift a single destiny.
    Sometimes a simple touch is enough to break down the strongest of barriers, sometimes a single word is enough to make the world quake.
    Sometimes the most reaching of changes comes in the form of a little boy sad enough, strong enough, and kind enough to make friends with a monster.
    Sometimes one change makes waves.

     

    Naruto has been hearing the rumbling growl in the back of his head for as long as he can remember. He’s seven when he tries to talk to it for the first time. He’s the dead last, the failure at everything, so he doesn’t actually expect to succeed.
    And when he’s suddenly standing, knee deep in murky water and face to face with a demon, he has no idea what to expect.
    As it turns out, the world could use something unexpected. 

    In which Naruto discovers the real meaning of the word monster, Sasuke discovers power and strength and learns the difference between them, and Sakura discovers that being herself is not as selfish as she thought.
    Where Kakashi learns to fight again for what he loves, and Obito never stopped.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku has always been a bit strange.

    Anyone will tell you that he's a ray of sunshine, and fun to be around-- but they might also tell you not to feel bad if he seems to suddenly look through you with his unsettlingly pale eyes, or to refrain from asking about his family, or his Quirk. He'll always be at the Viridian Cafe, serving pastries and smiles, in the warm atmosphere of fresh-brewed coffee and cats running amok. But you may also find him elsewhere-- observing heroes' fights, or heading somewhere with a flower bouquet.

    Indeed, Midoriya Izuku is a bit of a mystery, but as long as you respect the cafe and don't try to pry, the Viridian will open its doors for you, too.

    (The story of approximately eighty billion different futures and the one boy who can see them all.)

    Summary

    Jack of all trades, master none, but better than a master of one.

    People always look to the shiny heroes, the ones wrapped in gold and flashy quirks. A vigilante that you might know, in a time you might not, discovered that he's more than happy to be pyrite. Fool's gold looks just the same as overpriced gold but is stronger, more durable. He loses his home, gains a family, and decides to show the world that heroes aren't all glitz and glamor. It's hard work, breaking bones, and mucking through.

    He'll change the world and do it quirkless. The newest Undergound Hero Eraserhead decides to help a downtrodden kid do his best.

    (soulmate au with older!izuku, a grumpy hero, crazy support gear, and a plethora of adopted siblings that need therapy. fix-it fic?)

    Summary

    He knows everything, the wind whispered as it hopped from lips to ears, swirling over criminals’ minds, and resting on the dirty sidewalk.

    Izuku may be quirkless, but he had three smoke bombs in his pocket, a flash drive with a hundred dirty secrets, and twenty-some shadows following his every word.

    They were coming.

    Otherwise known as: the largest Found Family, Vigilante 1A + others AU ever. Mess with one of them, mess with the whole crew- and you did not want to mess with Izuku.

    Summary

    Izuku inherited his parents’ quirks, but he swore he’d never use his fire.

    He knows first hand how—bright, burning, scorching, painful, terrifying, destructive—it is, after all, and Izuku promised (promised his crying mother, promised his burning self, promised the laughing memory of his father) that he’d become a hero who stops that kind of despair.

    Even if he has to burn his own wings to do so.

    But when someone with the exact same problems, fears, and pain shows up... Izuku can't help but try to heal them. And in doing so, he himself may be healed too.

    Summary

    In an immensely convoluted way, quirks proved that the greatest power was the human mind. People, before quirks, used to say the greatest power is thought. The human brain, a complicated organ powered by tiny pulses of electricity could beat any idiot with a couple firecrackers popping between their fingers.

    When villains, with lightning bolts at their fingertips, could be bested by a hero whose only power was to manipulate fabric, it became increasingly obvious that power lies in how you used your mind.

    Unfortunately for Izuku, he challenged the one person- man? Animal? Creature? Creature.- that’s power increased their mind.

    But, maybe, just maybe, he could win this wager.

    - -

    U.A has a rule that prevents Quirkless students from applying.

    Izuku, in an attempt to get the rule removed, ends up challenging Principal Nedzu to a wager of wits.

    Summary

    "“So… one more time.” Shouta pinched the bridge of his nose, regretting both waking up this morning and possibly existence in general. “You’re the spiritual avatar of an entirely different world, and in the process of keeping the peace with said spirits, originating from your… dimension, you’ve come to our world to stop the actively malicious versions of your spirits, because our world told your world that something was wrong.”
    The child shrugged and grinned, looking much too cheery for someone currently in handcuffs.
    “Pretty much!” he chirped. “Your world spirit is really polite, too. Ours was super grumpy about all the spirits escaping, but then yours said it was ok, so long as I teach her more about them on the way back!”"

     

    Aang chases some renegade spirits across worldly borders and possibly makes some new friends along the way.

    Summary

    "Vla- no, not him." Shota scowled, he would rather give up all his naps than live to see the day where Sekijiro Kan of all people became his superior. "Snipe?!"

    "Not emotionally available at the moment as he is currently battling his romantic feelings for Kayama-san." Shota shot back down.

    "For the love of god-!"

    "As you can see, me appointing you as principal is the only logical decision available,"
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Or: Nezu goes on a week long business trip and makes Aizawa the temporary principal while he's gone, giving him all the powers the principal of UA would normally have. Aizawa, prepared to use this power to it's full capacity, silently vows to make as many changes to UA as he can in a single week. He appoints Midoriya as his secretary for the time being and together they wreak havoc among the school, showing no mercy to any obstacle in their path (And maybe becoming father and son along the way). The rest of the staff and students are left to sit back and watch as everything they know goes up in flames.

    Izuku couldn't remember much before the darkness.

    He remembered the feeling of weightlessness and the wind whooshing past his ears as he was falling . . . falling . . . falling.

    Then he hit the ground.

    They always forget that precious things are the first to be stolen.

    Summary

    Izuku manages to consistently use One for All at 100%, without breaking himself, half way through his second year. He graduates with that power tightly regulated, completely under his control; his quirk is his, completely. 

    The graduated class 3A have a word for it when Izuku - Deku - goes 100%. It's a physical sensation, they learned early; a pressure in the air and on their lungs and down to their bones and blood. Everyone within his vicinity can feel it.

    They call it going green.

    And then, in a fight against the villain Jupiter, Deku goes green for the first time since UA.

    One third of the people at the scene collapse to their knees.
