How do legends begin? How do champions get written in the stars? What makes a hero?
Sometimes it’s a presence, sometimes a smile, a shout of, “I AM HERE!”
Other times, it's a hand in the shadows pulling you to your feet when you feel like you can stand no longer. Protection when no one else will give you shelter, leading you to the eye of the storm, helping you ride it out till you can see the sunlight again. The soft glowing light of the moon in the dark, warm and home but surrounded by night.
It might be all the little boys and girls out there that just want to help, that are aching to give the world just a little bit of kindness. Maybe that makes a hero.
We all see the bright stars of the Hero Industry, the flares of light. We praise, and we have hope.
But what we don’t see is the hands in the shadows, the quiet takedown of organized crime. The eyes in dark alleyways and the risk of going underground.
Izuku Midoriya has a quirk that scares people. Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero. He cannot be a flare or a bright shooting star. He cannot carve his name in the stars, but maybe, just maybe, he can still land on the moon.
