    Summary

    The moment All Might told Izuku he couldn't be hero, things only went further downhill. He failed the UA exam and found himself in a sorry state. Years later he was able to pick himself up again. Got a decent job and being a respectable member of society... well except for the illegal vigilante work he did on the side as Token. It was a far cry from true pro-hero work, stopping muggers and burglars, small time crime. He got a chance to show what he could do when Eraserhead sent out a SOS. Then he accidentally got pushed into a portal and found himself back being fourteen year old quirkless Deku with All Might telling him all over again he couldn't be a hero. Time to show the guy he was wrong.

    Or to summarize, vigilante Midoriya Izuku travels back nine years into time and gets another chance at a impossible dream.

    Summary

    Against all odds, Izuku loves heroes. It doesn’t matter that he’s spent his entire life with villains, the real kind, not just regular criminals but actual genuine villains. It doesn’t matter that no heroes have ever come to save him. It doesn’t matter that they probably wouldn’t save someone like him. Izuku still loves heroes.

    He’s not blind to the irony of his situation. He has wings that cannot carry him to freedom, teeth and claws that he cannot wield against those who hurt him, and speed in the air and on foot that takes him nowhere. All he can do is manage disobedience where he can. Injure, don’t kill. If he can injure people instead of killing them, it’s something. It’s the closest Izuku will ever get to being a hero.

    Until one day, on what should be a routine mission, everything changes.
