    Summary

    Quirks are everything. In the decades since their arrival, they've become so ingrained in society that having a quirk is equated with being human.

    So, what happens when someone is quirkless? Are they viewed as less than those have one? Not fully deserving to be called human?

    What happens when someone has more than one quirk, against the natural order of things? Are they viewed as monsters? Inhuman for an entirely different reason?

    And, most importantly.

    What happens when someone is born with a quirk that gives them the power to decide who falls into what category?

    Summary

    When you're a Shigaraki, it's family first, family last, and family by and by. But introducing your new (normal) boyfriend to your family can cause a few problems--especially if your father just so happens to be Japan's most notorious supervillain.

    Summary

    Despite his relatively short life as so far, Midoriya Izuku has experienced one horrible thing after the next. The forest. The mall. His school. All of these places hold memories – memories that threaten to send Izuku over the edge. And yet, he trudges on — pushing through every painstaking moment of his life with what little sparks of hope he has left.

    One would think someone so young to be safe from such things, but fate has never truly been kind to Izuku - and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon.

    But everyone has a breaking point.

    And sometimes, a whisper is all it takes to drown out the sounds of millions.

    Summary

    The first person who got a quirk wasn’t that glowing baby born in Qing Qing. No, it was a boy named Midoriya Izuku, who watched the world silently with stars stippled across his cheeks and a morbid desire for death.

    Or; Midoriya Izuku is immortal. This proves to be far more trouble than it's worth.

    Summary

    Izuku esta cansado de todo. Cansado de ser quirkless, cansado de sus calificaciones, cansado de mentirle a su madre, y cansado de su vida en general.

    Así que hizo lo que todos estamos pensando.

    Pero al parecer el universo lo odia un poco más de lo esperado.

    Lastima que Kachan tiene que vivir con las consecuencias.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku has:
    - a shapshifter quirk and spends a bit too much time as an animal instead of as a human,
    - little regards for the law,
    - a rodent and a commission keeping an eye on him
    - and a supporting family.
    He lacks a little in the friend department but that's fine, he will probably get there.

     

    Or: crack with a plot :D
    Edit: This turned out less crack and more plot than i anticipated xD

    Summary

    “Why don’t you just jump off the roof and hope you get a quirk in your next life?”

    After dropping that bomb, Bakugou turned on his heel and left without even a glance at Izuku’s expression.

    -

    Where Bakugou Katsuki doesn’t get to gloss over his unforgivable opening scene, and his ego fucks him over more than it did in canon.
    Where Izuku Midoriya doesn’t get to dodge the fact that his dream of being a quirkless hero is both irresponsible and dangerous.

    An exploration of my own interpretation regarding why Bakugou acts the way he does.

    (I love them both, don’t worry, they get their shine eventually)

    Summary

    The coincidental meeting between Shigaraki and Izuku at the mall takes a surprising turn when the hero student decides to cooperate. While talking, Izuku asks the villain the same question he asked All Might: "Can a quirkless person be a hero?" The answer makes him seriously reconsider a few choices.

    Summary

    ‘Aizawa is going to kill me.’ Was his only thought as he fumbled around for his new phone and dialled his coworkers number. “Midoriya, are you aware that it is 1 am?” Aizawa immediately said, causing a nervous chuckle to escape his mouth.

    “Yeah.. uh, so sorry to call at this time but.. I seem to have gotten myself in a bit of a… situation.” When the man on the other end doesn’t reply they continue after a long inhale, “I… have lost Todoroki.”

    There’s a beat of silence on the other end, and Izuku then hears the deep exhale and inhale, “you WHAT? Where are you, I'm coming over right now.”

    Another nervous laugh, much more forced as the sky grows darker and darker by the second and he starts regretting not wearing gloves, “…Churchill… Manitoba.”

    “Manitoba. Like- Canada?”

    “Yes.”

    “YOU LOST TODOROKI IN CANADA!?”

    Izuku came back for two and a half things; to visit Nezu and fulfill his promise, to go back to Granny’s to have one of the heavenly apple tarts, and maybe, maybe scope out the latest fashion trends. They have no idea how they ended up saving all of Japan from a danger right under their noses.

    Summary

    Izuku really liked messing with people, it was one of his favorite things to do. But after the sludge villain attack where he gets a little too much attention, his life is turned up side down when his father comes back from who knows where to train him in case some old enemies return.

    Basically Izuku being sarcastic as hell, and having all for one's quirk. He isn't really a good guy but he's not a bad guy either.
    -
    Heroes were overrated, most of them just became heroes for the fame and money, not to mention power. It was all very corrupt to be honest, and he was content with this.

    This was fun. Playing the little defenseless quirkless kid; the perfect bait, just for him to bite back.

    Summary

    "A small part of Izuku screamed at him to do something, to run forward and save him. If this had happened just a few hours ago, before Kacchan told him to jump off a roof, before All Might had told him to give up, before his dreams had been torn apart and thrown in his face, maybe he would have.

    Instead, he just watched."

     

    In which Toga finds Izuku’s analysis notebook and decides to make a new friend, Izuku is maybe a little bit sadistic, and Bakugo regrets all of his life choices.

    Summary

    "One in the same, seen distinctly apart. Its a losing game, matched with green eyes in the dark"
    A phrase well known across society's underworld, spoken along with the name 'Inception'. Inception; consisting of the analyst Insight and his vigilante counterpart Inquisition. Together they pull the strings between the supposed good and evil of society.
    No one would expect them to really be two quirkless boys simply trying to survive life with the cards stacked against them.

    As the sons of Dragon, a legendary figure in society's underworld, they've grown up knowing that nothing is ever black and white. When Dragon surrenders to the heroes without pretense, things get complicated fast.

    Izuku and Akira Midoriya take over leadership Dragon's organization, the Shadow Order. They will gather their own players and pawns when they retake the underworld by force.
    After all why play the game when you can be the ones to write the rules?

    The lines between good and evil, heroes and villains will be blurred; as both boys struggle with the implications of every move.

    If life's a game, then it's like playing chess blindfolded. Win some or lose some; it's how you play the game. So Let the Games Begin.

    Summary

    Many things happened to little Izuku when he turned four years old, which in hero society is to be expected, as it is a known fact that all kids manifest their quirks by the age of four, except in our main character’s case of course, as the outcome of his important milestone was far different from everyone’s expectations.

    Unfortunately for our protagonist, fate does not shine upon him, and his fourth birthday would turn out to be the catalyst for unrelenting waves of pain and despair, ready to mercilessly crush the hopes and dreams of a mere child whose only wish was to be a hero who saves all and defeats all.

    In a society where all that counts is the power you were bestowed upon by the fates, how will Midoriya Izuku and the Abandoned Souls, who were born with no assets except for their beating hearts and burning wits, survive in a sea of people who wish for nothing but their demise?
