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.

This is a Quirkless!Izuku AU that has taken inspiration from many *many* other fics that I have read and enjoyed. I'm not sure how long it'll be, but I'll update this description as I go!
Each part can be read alone or as part of the series, though I do suggest you read them all for context on how I write the characters and for little things I change from canon. The major events shouldn't be affected much, but I may decide to write them differently or take my *artistic liberties* to change things.
Some series tags (will be updated as I write more):
RELATIONSHIPS: Erasermic, Izu x Shouto x Hitoshi,
All Might Bashing
Katsuki meets Consequences and Doesn't Like the Result
Katsuki attends Shiketsu
Mineta Gets Expelled/Mineta Bashing
A *little bit* of Ochako bashing (because she clearly doesn't understand trauma associated to bullying :))
IZUCREW: Izu, Ochako, Tenya, Tsuyu, maybe Shouto and Hitoshi? Haven't decided yet.
NERDSQUAD: Izu, Hitoshi, Shouto, Neito, Mei

“You’ll be my ride or die, Zu. Nobody will be able to beat us!”
“Of course, Kacchan! You’ll be mine too, right?”
The pact would live dormant in the back of their minds for many years, until such time when they needed it.

Bakugou is spiraling in the aftermath of Kamino and his friends are starting to notice. He's stubborn, aggressively independent, and less than willing to dig into his past, but after a breakdown that ends with a painfull secret revealed, he starts to get help.
Whether he likes it or not.
Meanwhile, a new kind of villain threatens an uneasy peace following the loss of Allmight. Whispers build as a new narrative slowly takes shape:
Hero society needs to change.
Feat. Therapy, Dadzawa, best boy Kirishima, dysfunctional families, healing, growing up, and the mortifying ordeal of being known
- Part 1 of Looking Too Closely

When Midoriya Izuku is 13 years old, he is kidnapped on his way home from school by a villain.
One year later he is found and returned home with some scars, no memories of the events he went through, and a latent fire quirk.
Izuku has to live a double life if he and his loved ones are to survive, even if that means lying to everyone and committing deeds that he’s not sure the heroes would forgive him for. He just needs to come up with a plan to defeat one of the most powerful men in the world, maintain both of his covers in the presence of enemies and allies alike, and hopefully not forget the “real” him.
Bakugou Katsuki is certain that Izuku has been lying to everyone since the day he had been rescued. And he’s going to figure out his secret.

He could never forgive himself.
It was his fault.
He’d planted the idea like a seed he’d never known would grow.
(Or: What if Izuku jumped?)
(OR: The one where Izuku jumps and lives and Katsuki visits him every day and Class 1-A not-so-secretly finds it adorable that their designated angry pomeranian brings flowers to his comatose childhood friend.)
