    Summary

    "I’m only two minutes late!” Izuku protested. Had he missed the start of an important test? None of the national, standardized tests were supposed to happen this month and even being two minutes late to one of those wouldn’t elicit this sort of reaction. They were discussing their career interest forms today, but that was it. Nothing time-critical was supposed to be happening.

    “Midoriya, you were reported missing a week ago. No one has seen you for eight days. The police have been combing the city for you.”

    "I’m sorry. What?”

    Midoriya Izuku went missing for a week and turned up in a back alleyway with skills he's never even heard of and no memory of how he came by them. He resigns himself to never learning the truth of what happened to him, but he shouldn't waste this chance should he? He could become a hero with reflexes like these.

    Summary

    After what was arguably the worst day of Izuku Midoriya's life, a chance meeting with a mysterious vigilante changes everything.
    after being bullied and baited by a childhood friend, attacked by a villain, and having his dreams crushed by his idol; Izuku final meets someone whose not only willing to be his friend, but who believes in his ability to be a hero. Even without a quirk.
    Dare Dare (John Doe) has an ever shifting appearance, and an even shiftier past. Being a vigilante on the run form his former captors makes it hard to form relationships, but they are incapable of ignoring a call for help from people in need, so they take a chance on a bullied child with a big brain and a bigger heart.
    What started as a mission to help train Midoriya for UA's entrance exam, leads to unexpected friendships, the exposition of several conspiracies, and more than their fair share of action and violence. All the while learning that truly saving someone means far more than just bringing down the villains.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku's quirk has always been a strange one. It always worked with those arounds him, even if it did cause him to choke every now and then. But he wasn't dead yet, so that was a good sign!

    You can call him obsessive and maybe a bit impulsive. I'm not saying you'd be wrong, if anything you're right. UA is finally here and he's managed to already make a fool of himself.

    All might's quirk has been on the fritz lately. Like its being drained into his nonexistent successor but at the same time it still responds to him full force. If anything, it seems... confused.

    Summary

    It's funny how much changes, and yet nothing does, when you shift one thing out of place. In a world both vastly different and remarkably same as the one we're used to, Izuku Midoriya is born over 17 years early. In his place, a young, orphaned Yoarashi Inasa is protecting the weak of Aldera Elementary, when he finds something he has been wanting for years. A family. In the present, a living mass of sludge attacks only one junior high student. And if you look deep enough, you'll find that the underworld smells of flowers.

    Summary

    About a week after that, All Might asked Izuku if he was aiming for the hero course at UA. The question was so sudden that Izuku nearly dropped a microwave on his toes.

    The truth was, if All Might had asked him that a week ago, there would have only been one possible answer to that question. All Might had gone to UA, UA was the best, so Izuku was going to go there too, if he could. But things were a little different, now that he was going to receive All Might’s Quirk.

    “No,” he said, decisively.

    All Might looked caught off guard, which was a very rare expression on him. “No?” he echoed, like he couldn’t believe it.

    A laugh bubbled out of Izuku’s throat. He honestly couldn’t believe it either. “No,” he repeated.

    ___

    Or, All Might tells Izuku about All for One before he gives him One for All, and everything changes.

    Summary

    "Today we will be starting a new class once a week in underground heroics. We have an underground hero to work with us, and I know what you’re thinking, why would we need an underground hero to come in and teach you when you have ME, but here we are” petty but fuck it. 

    “Introduce yourself, answer their unending, irritating questions for 10 minutes, then Iida take roll call. I’m having a nap.”

    -------

    Aizawa is cranky as hell when he finds out that an underground pro-hero is coming to teach his class one day a week about underground heroics! But when he meets the guy and gets to experience his quirk first hand, he finally understands why.

    Summary

    [In a world with superpowers, only 20% of the population don't have quirks]

    -> Unfortunately, that's only globally. In Japan, approximately 2% do not possess quirks. Most of them are over 60, and quirkless individuals under such an age are increasingly rare these days.
    -> 85% of all quirkless individuals leave Japan before 18, and not from transport.
    -> 92% of all quirkless individuals who make it past adulthood end up being involved with results of hate crime, poor healthcare or lack of necessities.

    {Izuku Midoriya refuses to end up the same fate, despite being quirkless}

    [-Dreams and hopes shattered on a rooftop, Izuku Midoriya turns to his other properties as a true hero, an intelligent person, and a boy who wanted support and found it.-]

    •He is a swan that shall soar into the sky after diving. •

    Summary

    Whoever said that "the past cannot be changed" obviously didn't take into account the existence of quirks and Izuku Midoriya's ability to cheat fate.

    But that didn't matter; what mattered was using what he'd learned the first time around to stop things from happening again, because he'd be damned if he let the League of Villains go around causing havoc for a second time.

    (Or: A run in with a villain sends Izuku twelve years into the past, where he becomes the teaching assistant of Class 1-A and decides to change some things up as he goes along, much to Aizawa's 'annoyance'.)

    Summary

    The last scraps of the resistance were falling apart.

    This simple fact had been a long time coming, they thought. Each death, each fallen comrade hit harder and harder than the last, until the six friends who were once called heroes stood on their last leg. It was by pure luck alone that they met a boy with such a powerful quirk- a quirk that could quickly turn the tides of their resistance efforts.

    It wasn't very flashy, like most prized quirks were back before the war; It didn't even have very much offensive capability.

    No, what set this quirk apart was the ability to send someone back before this tragedy began. The ability to prevent rather than react. And what better person to send back than their very own terrifying leader Midoriya Izuku?

    Summary

    Izuku’s quirk didn’t appear with any small objects moving towards him. Nor did it appear with a burst of fire when he exhaled. No, it appeared with the shrieking sound of metal tearing and sharp fragments of said metal launching themselves at the classroom walls.

    His quirk was nothing like he had expected it to be. And it didn’t help that he had almost killed a classmate with it. Izuku swears it was an accident, but no one believed him. At least his mother would, he hoped. But she too didn’t believe him.

    ‘A villain’, 'A Killer', he was called, many a times. They said that even his soulmate would hate him. Or that maybe his soulmate was also a villain. But he had always, always wanted to be a hero. Could he become one, with a villainous quirk that almost killed someone when it appeared?

    Notes: Aizawa Shouta is 26 years old in the canon time-frame.
    This Midoriya Izuku is 21 years old.
    The rest of the 1-A class is 15/16 years old.

    Summary

    Izuku has his hand on the doorknob when he hears Katsuki call out to him. He turns, to see Katsuki leaning casually in the doorway out to their balcony garden, silhouetted by the hot oranges and cool purples that are being splashed across the sky as the world rotates into twilight.

    “I know this is hard for you, but try not to be such a reckless idiot tonight,” Katsuki says.

    It’s said in a taunting way, but Izuku knows Katsuki too well by now to not hear the unspoken care in his words. 

    “Compared to you, I’m a paradigm of safety on my patrols,” Izuku jokes back. “Plus, if I get hurt, who is gonna take care of the plants? You and the three dead succulents you had in high school?” 

    “Hey! Shut the hell up, those things are deceptively hard to keep alive!” Katsuki says loudly as Izuku laughs.

    Izuku and Katsuki live in different worlds, one in the Underground, one in the Spotlight, but they still find ways to bridge the gap.

    (5 times Izuku and Katsuki shared something with each other through their garden, and 1 time they shared with everyone else.)

    Summary

    It all started with the promise of a quirk, a chance to become a hero. 

    But what if the number one hero went back on his promise? What if he gave the quirk to Mirio?

    What if Izuku still went after his dream of being a hero, quirkless, and ran into another transferable quirk?
    ________________
    What if Erasure was transferable? And what if it transferred only to those quirkless?

    Summary

    The multiverse is a paradoxical existence that doesn’t exist except for in the universe it does. Midoriya Izuku is a ‘centerpiece’. A person whose existence acts as a sturdy anchor for a good chunk of the multiverse. Hundreds of thousands of worlds base their changes and growth around this figurehead's name. In one of these universes, Midoriya may have become a regular Pro Hero. Maybe he gets a quirk. Maybe he ends up receiving one. Maybe he even becomes the villain he never wished to be.

    This is not one of those worlds.

    Midoriya Izuku's mom dies, as so happens in many of these 'universes', but what happens after that? What if his trauma led to unexpected 'developments'? What if he didn't need UA anymore to become a hero?

    Well, this is what happens.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku is the son of Jack Starbright, now going by the name Midoriya Harley (née Mitchell), having changed her name after having first moved back to the United States with Alex. Alex had also changed his name to Andrew Mitchell. Sabina Mitchell (née Pleasure) married Andrew. While living in the United States Harley met Hisashi Midoriya. They got married and moved to Japan to start their lives together, but would often travel between the states and Japan, until Izuku was born. Harley decided to stay in Japan so that she could raise their son. Sabina and Andrew often would visit Harley and Izuku, but they soon decided to join the family in Japan.

    By doctors Izuku was presumed quirkless, but Jack and Alex knew better he’d have a subtle but powerful quirk like the rest of the Rider family. The Rider quirks always come in latter than the average and always form around the persons natural personality, but due to laws in Japan quirks or lack there of must be known by the time a child is 5. If they don’t show a quirk by that time they are labeled quirkless until the time a quirk appears, and Izuku’s never appeared in the traditional sense. It was just to subtle to be picked up by those not of the Rider bloodline.

    Summary

    When one is born, it is typical for that being to be the most important creature on Earth to the parents, and for Midoriya Izuku that was no different, his mama would do anything and everything for her darling son, even take a bullet, or to take her child's pain, and place it on her person, even when, at age four, her darling little boy was diagnosed quirkless, as if it was a disease, and the disaster struck. His father came back, hungry for the power Izuku could grant him considering his diagnoses was a lie in hopes that his mama would abandon him, for six months after the visit to the doctor, Izuku had copied an exact replica of his mama's quirk, leaving her just as quirked as she was before.

    ***

    Basically Izuku is taken by his father (AFO) to be experimented on, in hopes that he may one day be able to copy and/or steal the completed version of OFA, but at age seven, All Might finds the boy, takes him to the hospitals where the HPSC take him into their custody to train him into becoming the top hero of Japan
