    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya, celebrated journalist on the international Hero beat, has returned to Japan for the first time in 15 years. He is intent on exposing the cause of a string of suicides of Hero agency support staff - especially if that cause is the toxic pressure of Heroes themselves. Heroes like Katsuki Bakugou, who seems just as hot headed and aggressive as when he was Izuku's middle school bully.

    Pressure rises when someone with a national profile takes their life as well, and the number one Hero agency in Japan is called in to investigate. Izuku is forced to work with Katsuki when an old friend asks for help. It's annoying, but its all part of the job. And he won't let Katsuki's bad attitude stand in the way.

    Summary

    “Why?”

    And Hawks can only answer honestly.

    “Because I want to.”

    “That’s not good enough,” Dabi lets go.

    Hawks moves his own hands to cup those scarred cheeks, “Because I want you.”

    “You don’t even know me.”

    ↳ alternatively named conversations of (with) my father
    or; Dabi is the one on Death’s doorstep, and he intends to walk through Hell’s gate with his father alone.

    Summary

    When most people my age write a journal-especially oriented around their English class as a school assignment-they do so out of self-expression. Emotion mapping. Chronicling the tale and tome of how they broke up with their partners that day. Writing down just how comfortable and cisgender and easy they are in their gender and the fact that they aren’t toiling, with every inch of their sweat, to maintain it.
    Pay attention to one word. Third word. First paragraph. “People.”
    And that, my friends, is the story of how my ethnicity-the Flood, the Springfield Exodus, the monsters, whatever you wish to call us-was systematically wiped out in a genocide.
    A genocide that I survived.
    If only it didn’t pain me so to have survived it.

    Summary

    Ever wonder what would happen if a professional disability activist went through Katawa Shoujo, annotated it, showed off why it works so well on a technical and philosophical level, added essays on parts of the disabled experience brought up in the game, live-reviewed an anime touching in the same themes, and made all this visible to screenreaders?

    Well, now you know.

    Updates MWF.

    Summary

    [NOTE: A slice-of-life AU inspired by "Black and Blue". In fact, this is set in that same universe.]

    --
    The King of the Vampires, Vlad Dracula Ţepeş (the Impaler) went unmarried until 12 years ago. In present day (14th century) Wallachia (Valachia to the Romanians), he is still very much as terrifying as the legends make him out to be. He protects his Castle fiercely, and the secrets held within. His wife, Aminata Keita is one of those well-kept secrets from those who may try to target her in order to get to him. To the outside world, she's a myth all on her own. To those that know her, she is the first ever Akkasha -- the de facto Queen of the Vampires -- as well as the first ever Lady of the Castle.

    There are horrors living in Castlevania, a place where science and magic meets. There is death, blood, sex, nonsensical things and all sorts of whacky hijinks in between.

    This is an exclusive look inside that place, and what exactly goes on.

    It's much worse than you'd think (and just as hilarious).

    Summary

    At the end of his life, Harry is given the chance to alter the course of the dark reality his son Albus and Albus' friend Scorpius create when they use a Time-Turner to save Cedric Diggory's life. With the hindsight bestowed by a lifetime as Auror, Head of the DMLE, husband, father, and friend, he will make very different choices as a seventeen-year-old wizard to try and save the people and the world he loves.

    But if he has to do it all over again, simply defeating Voldemort won't be good enough: there's a never-ending scroll of tragedies to avert and one newly-installed Headmaster of Hogwarts to talk around (if he manages to get a word in edgewise before getting hexed). The good news is, as always: he's not fighting alone.

    **This story contains major spoilers for Cursed Child and minor ones for Fantastic Beasts but does not require knowledge of either.**

    Summary

    He knew that with both the kingdoms in the East and the West encroaching on their borders, pillaging the small villages that they were supposed to keep safe, they needed the military prowess of the kingdom from the far Northern mountains to defend their people and protect themselves in a war. And the only thing the North had asked for in return had been the one thing that was missing from the current constellation of their royal family.

    Summary

    Possessed by a mixture of devastation, existing mental health issues, and desperate stress, Izuku makes a terrible mistake. He survived his suicide attempt, and he's genuinely glad for the second chance, but sometimes living is harder than letting go. As for what gave him the second chance... well, he's not entirely sure what to think of that either. With new hope and shattered world views, he continues down the path he originally chose, though this time without the wide-eyed wonder he once held for the world. He enters UA to become a hero, because if he can't believe in the ones he used to love, he can at least make himself into the hero he needs.

    Summary

    Izuku realized at an all too young age that the world isn’t fair. It’s like the whole of society was built against him. He was doomed because of something he didn’t have a say in. People looked at him with contempt, dismissal, or even pity. They pitied the poor soul born with no power, no special trait, no way of defending himself.

    They punished him for normality. What was supposed to be the norm turned upside down so suddenly the world couldn’t prepare. He was the one who was strange, weird, when everyone else had a power, powerlessness got a warped definition.

    The world was so blinded by the potential of quirks, they forgot their own.

    Izuku didn't.

     

    Or:

     

    Izuku, with the help of his 1-A friends, changes the world by becoming the first quirkless hero and building a better society.
    Basically remaking it from the ground up

As the Jedi are not only themselves under attack by Astera’s agents, but their friends throughout the 1442.
