“Fusion is supposed to be beautiful, Izuku," Mum says. "You’ll make more friends, and fuse with them, and feel how much they love you. I promise."
Izuku thinks about the wave of hatred-disgust-fear that rose up when Kacchan realised the extent of their fusion, and buries his wet face in his mum’s shoulder.
He doesn’t want to fuse with anyone ever again.
(AU where fusion isn't just a battle strategy; it's a form of affection and trust between loved ones. Izuku always thought fusion was for other people. Not for him. Not for quirkless Deku.
And then he meets All Might.)

When Midoriya Izuku looks at the world around him, he sees many things.
He sees a world that values heroics at face value more than anything else. He sees a world where those who are different are shunned and rejected. He sees one world that has long forgotten the existence of spirits, and another that desperately wishes to be remembered.
Izuku is no god. He can't magically fix what has been broken.
But he is a spirit-walker, and he is human. And because the world needs fixing, he'll become a hero.

Despite what everyone thinks, Midoriya Izuku is a picky eater.
It's not his fault that paper tastes like wood and mint, or that lies leave a saltiness that prints itself onto his tongue for days. It's especially not his fault that quirks just so happen to taste like fizzy melon candies.
Nobody's ever said that picky eaters can't become heroes, though.

Midoriya Izuku is quirkless. This, he knows very well.
This is also what he knows:
Weekends and vacations are reserved for walking neighborhood dogs. The elderly are the most powerful people on Earth. Local gods are picky eaters. Trust is a feeble, feeble thing. Magic cards are incredibly difficult to seal, especially when the world thinks you're a vigilante. Heroes are not magicians, but magicians can be heroes.
Becoming a cardcaptor wasn't on Izuku's bucket list, but he'll be damned if he doesn't make the best out of it.

As a member of the quirkless side of society, Izuku has long given up his dream of being a hero.
Remind him how he ended up in charge of an entire agency?
