    Summary

    It's all fun and games, until you have a target on your back for being quirkless.

    Izuku Midoriya had always been alone since his mother left him on the sidewalk at the age of 4. Waking up to a blond man fixing an apartment for him didn't change that—though for some reason people kept adding into his life. Maybe soon it would be enough to change that—

    All the while, news of quirkless people being killed dominated the media.

    Summary

    You can't be a hero, they said
    you're useless, they said
    when one is pushed down all their life, the logical course of action would be to give up. And Izuku was so god damn close to doing so. But he didn't. For better or worse (worse, a lot might say, and Izuku might even agree, thought he could never quite bring himself to regret it) his life changed.
    So, Izuku looked back to all the people who told him he was useless, to the fate that seemed to agree that he would never be a hero.
    He showed fate the middle finger and did it anyway

    Summary

    With a heavy sigh the boy at his back collapsed, bright green eyes flicking over his shoulder as All Might lost the battle to maintain his form...but that was alright. He recognized the scrawny, bruised boy staring up at him. A wall grew up to separate them from the students, but the boy didn’t seem to notice.

    “Are you alright, All Might?”

    The boy had been skinny when he’d last seen him, but now there was a slightly gaunt look to his bruised face and a scar like peeling paint stretched up from his jaw. The mess of dark curly hair was the same though, as was the light in those shy eyes. This boy…where had he even come from? Exhausted, Toshinori allowed himself to drop into the dirt beside him.

    “Thanks to you…Midoriya Izuku.”

    One of Midoriya’s eyes was swelling shut, but the other still widened in shock before a blazingly bright smile broke across his face.

     

    ---

    TLDR: Midoriya is kidnapped by Shigaraki for a year and is slowly adopted by 1-A as he works through the resulting trauma and fights to become a hero.

    Summary

    Every story must have a beginning, a middle, and an end; though not necessarily in that order. Some stories start in the middle and tell of the beginning on its way to the end, and some start at the end only to travel backwards all the way to the start. As long as you have those three important parts, you have your story, and countless ways to let them unfold.

    Let us open at the close, for the summary of this story.

    Midoriya Izuku has wanted to be a hero since he was a child, still attending daycare. It was a desire he'd never really elaborated on, but growing up with several prospective heroes, it's a desire he couldn't help but share. Nothing could have prepared him for the road he took to achieve this dream, and nothing could have prepared him for the things he'd lose for it. Still, with every loss there must be gain, and Izuku has decided.

    Knowing where he stands now, and knowing where he started not long ago, there's nothing that could convince him he should've lived his life any differently.

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya was born with the body of a girl. At age 4, he was diagnosed as quirkess. At age 5, an “accident” leads him to lose majority of his hearing. Doctors say he’ll most likely be completely deaf by the age of 16.

     

    Fortunately, he has a strong mother, a tired mentor, and some friends that always have his back.

     

    or: The fic where the universe screws Izuku over in every single possible way but that still isn’t stopping him from becoming a hero.
