    Summary

    The free androids of Detroit start building their brand-new future, but peace is only relative in the troubled times that follow a revolution. One of the major figureheads of the revolution and finally a deviant, Connor now has to learn how to handle free will. The AI that both guided and punished him is gone, but at a price, and he struggles with his newfound freedom when guilt and fear are the crumbling foundations of his new life.
    They say they want him there with them, but Connor can't understand why. He's afraid of himself and what he's capable of, afraid that maybe these feelings don't have their place within him.
    But despite all the doubts he may have, Connor finds that he desperately wants to live : because whenever he feels himself slipping and falling, they're here to catch him.

    Summary

    Kurosaki Ichigo had been gone a week, swiped from one second to the next from a street in Karakura without a trace left for them to follow. Now he was leaned against a tree in Soul Society and looked like he had been through hell. His robes were tattered and frayed as if years had passed, blood dripped from his limp left arm, and his hair was longer and uneven with knots of what she hoped was dirt and not clotted blood. His reiatsu was more wild and unthethered than she had ever seen.

    In the end, he fails to protect everyone but somehow Ichigo has found his way back and has a chance to fix what was destroyed. Including himself.

    Summary

    His fingers were now totally numb. Shit. He didn't think what he would do after he escaped. He sure as hell knew he didn't want to deal with those annoying ass police officers. Maybe if he pulled a babyface, they'd spare him some pity. But No.

    He's only 8, but he knows the police won't do shit.

    And no matter how long they bitch and moan about how they're gonna find the person who did this,

    He will never forget.

    Summary

    Dean gripped his mother's hand tighter as they slowly approached the imposing grey building. She had promised him they would never have to come back here, but of course, that was a lie. Only by a technicality did he work here. He was an assassin in training, and he usually left his weapons here rather than take them home. Not that he went to class. He either skipped or told his parents he was sick.  

    "Don't worry. We'll be in and out, no longer than five minutes, okay?" All 7 of the Porteur D'eau family were here. Which meant he needed to stop looking so scared, lest he is made fun of by his 3 brothers. Dean knew it was also a possibility that his sister would join in too, as she held no fear towards the place despite usually being the one to voice her concerns. 

    "Laura, do you think it was a good idea to bring the kids this time?"

    Summary

    Eddy Koehler has spent the nine years since the experiment ended alternating between getting drunk and getting high to avoid the quite literal ghosts that have haunted him ever since. On the run from people who might not even be chasing him anymore, he fully intends to live out the rest of his possibly endless lifespan living his life how he wants to, indulging in every one of his self-destructive habits and wallowing in his own misery. If he’s going to be unable to die, he might as well make the most of it.

    That is, until a high schooler claiming to be the son of another test subject waltzes into the club he’s at with unfair demands like getting sober, and saving the world, and other dumb things he doesn’t want to have to bother with.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku was captured by the League of Villains at a young age, supposedly Quirkless. But after some testing done by All For One, Izuku was proved otherwise... and the results made him wish he never had one in the first place.

    Years later, after relentless torment from people he used to consider friends, he makes his escape, falling safely into the hands of an underground hero he'd only heard of once or twice before.

    This hero was called Eraser Head. And, even if the shadowy hero hadn't realised it at the time, he would end up changing this scarred boy's life for the better.

    And even if the small, freckled boy didn't realise it at the time, he would eventually soften down the rock that saved him that cold December night.

    ---

    Or, Izuku was born with a Quirk that wasn't meant to activate until he was 16 years old and is scarred for life over the consequences, whilst Aizawa sees potential in him and drives him to UA where he finally uncovers a life he could never imagine. Very sad. Very fluffy. And very wholesome.
