    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya doesn't have a quirk. Quirks are things of wonder and awe, destined to make great heroes out of those who master them. Izuku has a curse. A thing. A horror that burnt his skin, ruined his life and filled his head with monsters. His only chance at normality was to suppress the darkness with self-hatred, silence the demons with medication, and focus everything left on the singular goal of maybe one day turning his curse into a force for good.

    But can such horror, such darkness, ever be used for good? Or will he eventually fall to shadow and flame?

    After all, Izuku is his father's son.

    Summary

    Izuku Midoriya used to want to be a hero. It seems a distant dream, now, after everything that he's done—after everything that he's been made to do. But it's still there. It's a dim, flickering flame, burning lower by the day.

    He doesn't have time to concern himself with that though, these days he's too focused on staying alive to think too much about what he can never have.

    Then All Might takes a job teaching at UA, and the universe says hey you know what would be fun? What if we fucked Izuku over even more than we already have? and thus, Izuku ends up in the General Education class of UA with strict instructions to report everything he can, because, thank fucking no one, he just can't catch a goddamn break.

    AKA Hisashi Midoriya is a member of one of the most notorious underground supervillain organizations, and Izuku is being forced to help them (even though, trust him, he'd really rather not). Too bad that they don't predict that Izuku's going to get adopted by half the faculty when they send him to spy on the prestigious hero academy.

    "Why don't you take a swan dive off the roof? Maybe you'll get a Quirk then!"

    So he did.

    And he did.

    Summary

    Izuku's only truly used his quirk once. He was four years old.
    He took thirty-two lives that day.
    Now, he's sworn never to let that power possess him again. Hiding the true nature of his quirk from everyone, he hides behind the thin facade of a useless, showy quirk, refusing any and all connection to the mysterious creature recognized in a few sparse news reports as the Leviathan.
    Lies don't last forever, however, and one day or another, his world will have to come crashing down.
