    Summary

    In some universes, Izuku Midoriya's dream came true when All Might gave him One for All. He was finally on a level playing field with everyone else, and he ran forward into the future without looking back, aiming to become the next Symbol of Peace. This was not one of those universes.

    In other universes, Izuku Midoriya was never given One for All. Maybe he never encountered the sludge villain a second time. Maybe All Might didn't track him down afterward. Whatever the cause, Izuku Midoriya remained quirkless. In some of those universes, he became a villain, disenfranchised with the society that had always beat him down. While those universes were closer to this one, this was not one of them either.

    In this universe, Izuku Midoriya still received One for All, but he never forgot what it meant to be quirkless. He never forgot the way that those who were deemed "lesser" were treated. Izuku Midoriya was made to help people. When he realized that the heroes he'd admired for his entire life would never help people like him, not if it meant giving up their power, well...

    The road to Hell was paved with good intentions. At least Izuku wasn't walking it alone.

    Summary

    “How could you be so cruel? They were villagers, innocents, they were just trying to survive and you stole their life for what? A profit?!” The elf seethed, spitting and aggressive as he shoved the man in the chair. Jeongguk hummed.

    “Are you talking about them, or your own people? I didn’t do it for a profit. I did it because I could. I wanted to, so I did,” Jeongguk laughed, tilting his head back. Coldness pressed to his tilted back throat and he stared up at the elf. The same elf who danced and sang so happily in that little tavern was pressing a knife to his throat with the intent to kill.

    OR - Jeon Jeongguk is the leader of a notorious mercenary group settled in the far north of the coldest continent, Del Wintis. Cocky and rather murderous, he finds his way of keeping his emotions at bay thawing under the intense heat of Park Jimin, the cheeky elf who despises him with every fibre of his pretty being.

    Summary

    “I’m named after you,” is the first thing that Ves says to him when she walks up to where he’s working on sharpening blades. “Don’t make it weird, old man.”

    Vesemir snorts, unable to quite keep from smiling. There’s battle brewing and more bodies in Kaer Morhen breathing than they’ve had in nearly a century, and still he’s been backtalked by young ones. It’s almost nostalgic. “You are only one of many, many others. The world is a strange place.”

    Or: The Life and Times of Vesemir of Dol Angra, hero of Lyria.

    Summary

    "I’m only two minutes late!” Izuku protested. Had he missed the start of an important test? None of the national, standardized tests were supposed to happen this month and even being two minutes late to one of those wouldn’t elicit this sort of reaction. They were discussing their career interest forms today, but that was it. Nothing time-critical was supposed to be happening.

    “Midoriya, you were reported missing a week ago. No one has seen you for eight days. The police have been combing the city for you.”

    "I’m sorry. What?”

    Midoriya Izuku went missing for a week and turned up in a back alleyway with skills he's never even heard of and no memory of how he came by them. He resigns himself to never learning the truth of what happened to him, but he shouldn't waste this chance should he? He could become a hero with reflexes like these.

    Summary

    In a different time where the nations of the world took a different path, one where the British Empire lived on and where Japan still maintains the position of Shogun, humanity is experiencing an unprecedented decline. Some are content with migrating to the stars, considering the world and the stolen seas to be nothing more than a dangerous pit that stifles innovation. Then there are those who decided to not only live on this accursed blue marble, but even join the World Government Navy in their war against the very beings that ended mankind’s reign over the oceans.

    ...or something like that. This is no action-packed story about the glorious and constant war with the ghosts from the abyss and the ever-looming threat of post-humans warping time and space in some cosmic experiment. It’s a quiet, bubbly pseudo-anthology full of tales from the abandoned oceans. That of the CO of the WGN’s 1st Expeditionary Fleet and her merry and rather lewd companions.

    Primarily Kantai Collection-based cast, but there’s more than a few Azur Lane girls mixed in there. If you can tolerate a crossover between those two with many, many, MANY liberties in setting and backstory, then welcome.

    Summary

    When Myrddin is barely a toddler, he already shows signs of having powerful magic. So, fearing for his safety, Hunith takes him to a hidden druid realm in the forest of Ascetir. The druids accept Hunith and Myrddin, on a condition that she allows them to raise her child as one of them: they don't raise their children gendered, instead letting a child choose - or, not choose at all - when the time comes.

    Meanwhile, in Camelot, young Arthur learns to be a warrior king, which apparently means training to kill and never crying.

    But one day, Myrddin and Arthur's paths cross... in a most unexpected way.

    Summary

    It was a stormy winter night when Lady Alcina Dimitrescu finds a lone figure wandering the area. They are utterly exhausted and she could have left them to die. Except she doesn't. She takes them in, nurses them back to health, because this person isn't human. Sure they look very much human but aren't. So what are they?

    The figure in question was once a superhero to the world until the world decided to reject them and blame them for things that went wrong. Leaving the life of a hero behind, the figure has lost all purpose and simply wanders without a thought or care.

    Can a second chance be given in the hidden depths of Romania? Can a vampire Countess and an outsider find themselves in each other? Is there more to the immortal life than the same old? What role does morality play when either side simply wants to live?

    And what about ancient pacts? The very plans lurking in the back that bind four powerful houses together?

    Summary

    After your life is saved by a quirkless middle-schooler, you find yourself roped back into the world of Heroism you've spent years trying to escape. Your mentor convinces you to take a job at U.A. that will bring you perilously close to your former best friend, Toshinori Yagi, who you have been avoiding since you mysteriously dropped out of high school in your third year.

    Being a Hero never gets any easier.

    And high school never ends.

    *****

    "Toshi, I don't think you understand your own gravity. How everything you say and do can have so much weight, even when you're nowhere to be seen." You know that crushing power all too well. You have been on the receiving end of the drop too many times to deny its existence. 

    He's blind to his influence. He's wearing All Might colored glasses and whines, "I wish I could be invisible whenever I'm not All Might. At least then, I wouldn't have to look at this every morning in the bathroom mirror."

    "I don't know, Toshi. You've got a face I'd happily wake up next to every day."

    Summary

    A widely misunderstood fact about Avians is that they’re extremely hostile creatures when provoked.

    While known for being very reliant and familial with those that they’re close to, it’s often forgotten that they’re equally as dangerous due to their normally kind and nurturing nature, and can be considered one of the best killers in the predator world due to the way they use their wings in combat and their disregard for honorable deaths for those that try to hurt them.

    This leads to many hunter deaths, thanks to their arrogance.

    Tubbo was just flying home when he was provoked.

    or: Avians are a lot more dangerous than folks give them credit for. Tubbo gives a few hunters a grim reminder.

    Summary

    In the Beginning, the Garden of Eden was surrounded by a towering wall; and in that wall were set four enormous gates, facing to the South and the North, the West and the East.

    Each of the four cardinal directions belongs to a different Archangel. Each archangel put their Gate under the charge of a different subordinate. What would have happened to humanity if Adam and Eve had left the Garden through a different gate?
