    Summary

    Homecoming A/U.

    Ben and May divorced before Peter’s parents died, so when Ben is murdered Peter goes into foster care. It takes just a tiny taste of superpowers for Peter to decide he doesn’t want to put up with his horrible foster father anymore—the streets are infinitely more appealing. All he wants is to be Spider-Man anyway.

    So he leaves.

    Simple.

    Simple, that is, until Iron Man needs Spider-Man’s help. Peter isn’t about to turn down an opportunity to fight alongside Tony Freaking Stark, but he also isn’t going to let his hero know that his recruit is a fifteen-year-old homeless dropout. So they strike a deal. Peter will help Tony. In return, the mask stays on.

    And that’s when things get complicated.

    Summary

    The transition from Cadet to Paladin is rough and no one (except Lance) feels ready for the coming war. Yet fate's brought them together and failure's not really an option when none of them want the Galra to ever get around to taking over the Earth. Unfortunately, they've all got their own baggage to work through if they want to be able to become the saviors of the galaxy. In one day Lance has gone from worrying about his next test in the simulator to worrying about an interstellar war that he's sure he's meant to play a leading role in. Pidge still hasn't found her family, and becoming a Paladin doesn't really seem like the best way to focus her time. Hunk never even wanted to go to space. Keith just wants to make sure his soulmate survives, but if he can just get Lance to at least tolerate him he might just feel a bit like he has any part of his life handled. Shiro isn't sure if he even wants to remember what he's forgotten, but he won't let it stop him from being who he needs to be to win.

    Alternate Title: The Kids are (Not) Alright.

    Largely follows the first few episodes of the series with my own twist. The next story in the series is going to be a major canon divergence.

    Summary

    Through the spite of the spirits or plain rotten chance, a door that would have been better left untouched has opened. On the other hand, with Fire and Earth as one's allies, sometimes escaping is the easy part.

     

    Even the Dragon-King's temple floods.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku has always been written off as weird. As if it's not bad enough to be the quirkless weakling, he has to be the weird quirkless weakling on top of it.

    But truthfully, the "weird" part is the only part that's accurate. He's determined not to be a weakling, and in spite of what it says on paper, he's not actually quirkless. Even before meeting All-Might and taking on the power of One For All, Izuku isn't quirkless.

    Not that anyone would believe it if he told them.

    (This story now has a TV Tropes page!)

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya has endured a decade of abuse, ridicule, and social ostracization due to his status as 'Quirkless'. Even his childhood friend, Katsuki Bakugou, has tossed him aside and made it a mission to drill his uselessness home. But despite his obstacles and the derision of his peers, Izuku will never give up on his dream of being a hero, and will never feel shame for being called Quirkless.

    Because it's easier than acknowledging that he has a Quirk at all.
