    Summary

    Izuku only had one person tell him he could be a hero his whole life, and he doesn’t blame Shouta for lying. He thinks he would too - but now he has someone to believe in him, the number one hero, the one person in the world who can gift his quirk to Izuku.

    Shouta’s always been protective, but it only magnifies tenfold after he gets a quirk - now if only the quirk would cooperate, and Shouta would tell him what he really knows about quirks - and their father too.

     

    Shouta's always tried to do right by his brother, and after their father's death at the hands of All For One, it's been harder and harder to tell Izuku he can be a hero even without a quirk.

    So when Izuku destroys the zero pointer with a quirk he certainly hadn't had yesterday, what's he supposed to think?

    If only life would stop throwing him curveballs at every opportunity. Between his brother, a purple-haired kid that reminds him of himself, and a little girl with no family to care for her, Shouta has his hands full.

     

    Or, Izuku tries to navigate a quirk (or seven), Shouta tries to navigate family, and everyone else just tries not to think too hard about how none of this makes sense.

    Summary

    Of all the people to have been kidnapped alongside, it had to be this person, this hero, the one person who would never blame him for the things he was forced to do.

    “Don’t cry,” Midoriya says.

    “Fuck you,” Hitoshi chokes out.

     

    (When Shinsou goes grocery shopping a few weeks after transferring to Class 2A, Midoriya tags along. Because he is, for some reason, determined to be Shinsou’s friend.

    Shinsou remains cold and withdrawn in the face of Midoriya’s friendliness—until they’re kidnapped by a woman with a brainwashing quirk who believes Shinsou doesn’t belong in the hero course.)

    Summary

    Izuku inherited his parents’ quirks, but he swore he’d never use his fire.

    He knows first hand how—bright, burning, scorching, painful, terrifying, destructive—it is, after all, and Izuku promised (promised his crying mother, promised his burning self, promised the laughing memory of his father) that he’d become a hero who stops that kind of despair.

    Even if he has to burn his own wings to do so.

    But when someone with the exact same problems, fears, and pain shows up... Izuku can't help but try to heal them. And in doing so, he himself may be healed too.
