    Summary

    Katsuki was a natural born hero. Simple as that. He was smart, charismatic, and had the strongest quirk of anyone he’d ever met. And yet for some reason, All Might picked stupid, worthless Deku as his successor instead. But it didn’t matter. The nerd probably schemed his way into All Might’s favor. All Katsuki had to do was pull back the curtain on how awful he really was, and the number one hero would come to his senses. After all, real heroes never lose. No matter what.

    Summary

    "So. Izuku dug his fingers into his hair. In order to win the festival and keep Father from pulling me out of the hero course, I have to contend with: the non-hero course students who want to take my spot, the other hero class jealous of 1A’s attention, the rest of my own class full of powerful quirks and experience fighting villains, including my childhood bully who’s never lost anything in his life, and my asshole half-brother with one of the most powerful quirks I’ve ever seen, a decade of training on how to use it, and a lifetime of barely repressed hatred he’s been waiting for an opportunity to unleash on me. All in full view and judgement of millions of people, including my teachers, hero scouts, my mentor the number one hero who wants me to declare myself his successor, my horrible father who will surely turn on me if anyone finds out he is my father, and my Mom who’s scared of me getting hurt. And I have to do all that using a quirk I can’t control without breaking my bones. He crouched down and silently screamed into his hands. I am going to die!"

    Summary

    Chekov's Gun: "If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired."
    Kurogiri’s back with the league after Jakku, yet things aren't the same as when he left...

    Five fingers on the table, peering over pages and notes, muttering quietly under breath. A strong silhouette in the dark, posture tall and unyielding, that smile written across his face with matching pale eyes.
    It will be a shame to ruin that beautiful red trench coat.
    A soft Click! and he turns around.
    “Ah! Hello-”
    Bang!
    The force of the gunshot sends Tomura crashing into the table.

    Summary

    Izuku has plans for everything.

    He plans out what to say to the cashier when ordering coffee, he plans out his homework before even opening his textbook. He has a whole ten-year plan for how he’s going to get into UA’s hero course and get his hero license fully quirkless. He plans for every wild, unlikely scenario he can think of because his anxiety gets so bad if he doesn’t go through every possible outcome, every way his life could landslide into disaster–– but Izuku never planned for this.

    For once, he doesn’t have a plan and he doesn’t have time to think of one. All he can see is Yagi-san’s lined, kind face looking resigned as he stares down the villain in his shop. Yagi-san, who is the closest thing to a father figure Izuku has ever had.

    Izuku doesn’t think. He just moves.

    (Or: Izuku saves the number one hero, gets a hero license way earlier than anyone wanted, realizes that maybe hero society isn’t as great as he thought it was, and everything just kind of falls apart from there.)
