    Summary

    Izuku has wanted to be a hero for his entire life. Ever since he first learned what a hero was, he couldn't imagine himself doing anything but. As a toddler, he remembered playing hero with his mom and his dad, both of them giggling over the All Might themed names he'd pick out for himself. When he came back from the doctors that fateful day when he was four years old, he asked his mom the fateful question;

    "Mom? Can I still be a hero?"

    She was silent for just a moment, taking a deep breath before answering. "No, Izuku...I'm sorry but it's not safe."

    Told all his life that he can't be a hero, prevented from even applying to UA's hero course, Izuku decides that if he's not allowed to become a hero then he might as well become the next best thing.

    A vigilante.

    Summary

    "Be careful what you wish for."

    If only someone told Izuku this sooner. Maybe he could have been lucky enough to be born quirkless. Yet he knows, through each painful death, that things could have been worse.

    So much worse.

    Midoriya Izuku

    Quirk: Return by Death

    (AKA, my completely self-indulgent Re:Zero AU because I couldn't get it out of my head. Contains lots of pointless suffering and angst. You don't need to know anything about Re:Zero to read this.)

    Summary

    Izuku's always had the vague feeling that trusting people is more trouble than it's worth.

    A villain's quirk makes him realize how painful trust can be, too.

    izuku midoriya is famous.

    at first, his friends think it's a coincidence. it starts with one, then another, then thousands, all saying hello, how have you been, and thank you. people know izuku's name and call out to him in the street. cashiers and waiters give him discounts when they recognize his face. no one will hurt him: villains, civilians, and heroes alike. it's the work of a quirk, his classmates assume.

    but there's something his classmates don't know.

    Summary

    Izuku is known as Deku online. He's an analyst of quirks, sometimes even working with the local detective, Tsukauchi, on a case.

    He meets new friends, builds a few relationships, and slowly crushes on his best friend. But then he's thrown into the General Studies Course at U.A.

    It doesn't help that All for One is showing an interest in him at all.

    Luckily Aizawa and Yagi will watch out for him.
