    Summary

    Izuku was born with a rare type of soulmate: parental. After being diagnosed quirkless, his father leaves and his mother becomes distant, leading Izuku to believe his third parent would do the same. Desperate to retain a positive relationship with his soul-parent, he keeps them at arm's length for fear of them rejecting him too.

    Shouta is worried about his soul-child. Over the last few years they've become withdrawn. Shouta isn't naïve, he knows why children get parental soul bonds. He just wants to make sure they're okay (and maybe meet them and maybe adopt them). Maybe he is just as much of a dad as his friends say.

    Summary

    sometimes someone (me) wants a major character to live (spoilers for that and both games inside) so they write canon scenes and some made up scenes from kazuma asougi’s perspective to kickstart a tiny butterfly effect. and then that someone (me again) also writes a multi-chaptered epilogue set post dgs 2 that ends with ryuunosuke naruhodou and kazuma asougi dating. if that sounds cool, cool!

    (i'm currently writing the case at the end of the epilogue, so it's not done just yet, but i plan to finish this by march 2021- currently uploading a chapter from a backlog every sunday- or all at once if i finish first

    Summary

    (Pokemon/Infinity Train Crossover)

    Chloe Cerise had enough of everyone telling her to have a job with Pokemon, of Goh ignoring her and focusing on Mew, his captures and Ash, of her father only caring for research and his "research fellows", and of Ash for being a black hole to suck everything in. When she decides to run away from home, she decides to take the first train out of Vermillion City...

    And into another world filled with endless possibilities and a green number on her right hand.

    Summary

    Izuku doesn't have a quirk. That's the long and short of it. After being told his whole life he can't be a hero, General Education at UA is the best he can hope for, right? Wrong. Dead Wrong. So super wrong that his best friend from Gen Ed, all of Class 1A and a whole mess of Pro Heroes are going to prove to him how wrong he is. Izuku has the makings of a hero, and his lack of a quirk only throws those qualities into starker relief. After all, who wants to be as strong as All Might when you can be the cleverest hero in the business?

    Summary

    There are few things worse than dying.

    But then again there are very few things better than being able to turn into a dragon, so I guess it balances out in the end?

    Regardless, this is the story of how I became a Hero.

    Summary

    Some people get great quirks and shitty families, or great families and insignificant quirks, and the lucky few who get amazing quirks with supportive families. Category A and B flow neatly into civilian life in the best of circumstances or villains when something wrong itches away at their status quo. Most would say C is a shoe in for become the most important career in the world- a Pro Hero.

    Not him. The unique position of living in what most assume is a decent family with an unexpected lack of quirk when in reality his father is the biggest supervillain in hundreds of years hiding it from his wife and unsuccessfully tried to hide it from his only child while that same boy tries desperately to hide that he's gotten an even more powerful combination of his parents quirks from the world and more importantly his father and his enemies.

    Quirkless, he presses into his bones every morning, is better than anyone finding out.
