This collection is a repository for stories where characters aren't quite who or what they seem, as well as characters whose outsides don't match who they really are. It has a sister community (also run by me) on ff.net. Featuring reincarnation, secret identities, amnesia, transgender characters, and more. Now also featuring characters having actual identity crises!
No self-inserts. No OCs (as the main character.) No RPF.

“There is no freedom in being a shinobi!” The boy spat, his cerulean gaze enraged as he glared ahead. “I am no different than cattle, following orders, forced to serve, tethered to this village I despise. Tell me, how is this freedom?”
"The Child Who is Not Embraced by the Village Will Burn it Down to Feel its Warmth".
Eren Yeager thought his journey ended in the final battle, that he could finally find peace in his death. But he traded one cage for another, finding himself reincarnated in an unfamiliar world. Reborn again, this time as an outcast, an orphan, an unloved child hated by everyone around him.
His new name is Uzumaki Naruto.

Skull has done his best to forget about his past. To forget about what he left behind. But when the past comes knocking, maybe it would be better to listen to what it has to say.
At least he knows that his new family won't leave him behind

[Welcome to the System.] Something cool began to bleed into his mind, like ink on wet paper.
Something that did not belong.
Like a startled dog, his abused, shredded, aching mind whipped around and lashed out. Harry seized the voice in his head that didn't belong, he closed his mental teeth on it, feeling it trying to burrow its roots into him, into his mind, his soul. He refused. He did not bow to Voldemort when he held a piece of the man's soul, he would not obey now!

He ripped it out of his mind, leaf, bulb, and root, and burnt it away.
Harry Potter goes to sleep after the Final Battle and awakens in a strange place, surrounded with strange people, calling him strange names. So he does what any reasonable wizard would do in such a situation - he throws himself off the mountain and gets as far away as possible before looking for answers. Unfortunately, it seems as though he may have absconded with someone else's body in the process. Or... is it? And what was that presence that tried to burrow into his mind? And why the sudden aversion to numbers? And who is 'Qi-ge'?
Salazar Slytherin did not have an easy life, and he finally died alone after an argument with his dearest friends. Then he was reborn. Somehow. But life as the Boy Who Lived might be too much even for him. At least he doesn’t have to do it alone.

Being and feeling alone is not a new thing to Sawada Tsunayoshi. It’s more of an old, unwanted and annoying companion that he can’t seem to get rid of. A leech.
whilst my world’s crashing down
Feeling useless, worthless, hopeless — less — also isn’t new. It’s finding an old coat you always knew you had laying around and feeling only a spark of surprise that it still fits.

Tsuna is not a normal or even happy child by any means. He’s clumsy, slow, mute, hated. He can count how many people like and care for him on one hand and still have fingers left over.
just want somebody to die for
Considering that he used to be Midoriya Izuku once, it isn’t all that surprising.
