    Summary

    (Pokemon/Infinity Train Crossover)

    Chloe Cerise had enough of everyone telling her to have a job with Pokemon, of Goh ignoring her and focusing on Mew, his captures and Ash, of her father only caring for research and his "research fellows", and of Ash for being a black hole to suck everything in. When she decides to run away from home, she decides to take the first train out of Vermillion City...

    And into another world filled with endless possibilities and a green number on her right hand.

    Summary

    Izuku was born with a rare type of soulmate: parental. After being diagnosed quirkless, his father leaves and his mother becomes distant, leading Izuku to believe his third parent would do the same. Desperate to retain a positive relationship with his soul-parent, he keeps them at arm's length for fear of them rejecting him too.

    Shouta is worried about his soul-child. Over the last few years they've become withdrawn. Shouta isn't naïve, he knows why children get parental soul bonds. He just wants to make sure they're okay (and maybe meet them and maybe adopt them). Maybe he is just as much of a dad as his friends say.

    This fic has a Discord now!

Izuku has the makings of a hero, and his lack of a quirk only throws those qualities into starker relief. After all, who wants to be as strong as All Might when you can be the cleverest hero in the business?
