    Summary

    “Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.” - Jim Morrison

    Percival didn't immediately remember what had happened when he woke up, chained to the wall in his basement, head pounding. He was ashamed to say that his first thought was that he'd gone a little hard on the drink and had taken a psycho home with him. Then his actual memory kicked in and he wished this had been a simple case of a wild night on the town. Grindelwald was in New York.

    Or:

    When Newt is expelled from Hogwarts as an impressionable teenager, it wasn't Dumbledore who got to him first, but instead a Grindelwald follower. When Percival is taken captive by Grindelwald in New York, Newt is left to guard the man and Percival is left trying to convince him to free them both.

    Summary

    “Disorientation is one of the quirk’s side effects, along with dizziness, confusion, and flushing later on. He’s going to tell the truth the entire time, but the truth may be…” Aizawa stares exasperated at Midoriya before running a hand through his hair. He mutters something under his breath that sounds distinctly like goddamned problem child, before continuing. “It may be slurred and difficult to understand.”

    Hanta does his best not to stare. He does not think his actions are convincing to anyone.

    “So it uh... I mean, it’s like…” He eyes Midoriya’s disorderly movements. “He’s… drunk?”

    --
    OR:

    Aizawa is tired, Midoriya gets drugged, and Sero uncovers some uncomfortable truths about his friend's past.

    Summary

    If they wouldn’t give him a chance then the solution seemed simple, he’d give himself one. He’d force the world to see him, force them to recognize his hard work. He wasn’t missing a quirk, it was simply that everyone else had been given an advantage. He wasn’t broken, or useless, or incapable, and he’d prove it by outrunning all of them, he who was quirkless, he who had started in last.

    Summary

    Anger, Izuku is learning, is a fickle thing.

    Because despite everything, he still wants to make it right. He wants to keep Todoroki's idea of what makes a hero alive, wants to forget the burning of childhood across his fingertips. He want to keep everyone safe.

    Izuku wants them both to be anything but the embodiment of what has happened to them.

    He meets Todoroki’s eyes, “We're here because we earned it, Todoroki-kun. Us, and no one else."


    Or, Izuku, the methodology of trauma, a series of conversations, & the price of being named one side of a same coin.

    Summary

    Kayama isn’t actually bad. She first introduces herself with a pretty speech about giving their all and striving to be the best, because Plus Ultra, and then she just jumps right into their faces about needing to beat the 1-A class, the hero course, because she has a bet running.

    Inspiring, truly.

    (In which Shinsou Hitoshi still wants to be a hero, even if that means cleaning up an old, cluttered gym, befriending that one quiet kid in his class, taking care of kids at his foster home and fighting insomnia on a daily basis.)
