Izuku has plans for everything.
He plans out what to say to the cashier when ordering coffee, he plans out his homework before even opening his textbook. He has a whole ten-year plan for how he’s going to get into UA’s hero course and get his hero license fully quirkless. He plans for every wild, unlikely scenario he can think of because his anxiety gets so bad if he doesn’t go through every possible outcome, every way his life could landslide into disaster–– but Izuku never planned for this.
For once, he doesn’t have a plan and he doesn’t have time to think of one. All he can see is Yagi-san’s lined, kind face looking resigned as he stares down the villain in his shop. Yagi-san, who is the closest thing to a father figure Izuku has ever had.
Izuku doesn’t think. He just moves.
(Or: Izuku saves the number one hero, gets a hero license way earlier than anyone wanted, realizes that maybe hero society isn’t as great as he thought it was, and everything just kind of falls apart from there.)

“Look...If you had one shot or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted in one moment, would you capture it or just let it slip?”
-Eminem, Lose yourself
Izuku has only one person he can trust in this damned Earth and that’s Eri. And he’s content with that. Happy to move from place to place with his daughter while trying to get the both of them to recover from the things life throws at them.
However, UA’s 3-A students and their homeroom teacher need him to come back into the world of heroics to help defeat an upcoming evil, All For One.

Todoroki Shouto's life had been terrible basically as long as he could remember. He'd spent a long time angry about a lot of things, but then it occurred to him: he could change things for himself, make them better, give himself a new life as long as his father wasn't involved in it. Thus begins Yukimura Shouto's long quest to convince everyone (even his own family) he didn't actually exist, and There Was No Todoroki Shouto.
Needed along the way: many different colors of hair dye and four determined friends (none of which could have predicted how far his little scheme would go, which included talking to villains in drug stores in the dead of night and making friends with a weird gamer shut-in with psoriasis.)
"Sensei? Do you think you would be able to tolerate a small request of mine? I'd like for you to use a different name than what's on my records."
(Along the way he accidentally inspires another with ten simple words: "Why would you need a Quirk to be a hero?")

There were many things in Izuku's life that had created the insecurities he kept inside: the years of bullying, his father's last harsh words to him, the guilt he felt over All Might's retirement, the scorn of the man's former sidekick that Izuku was working for. It was a mixture of things that eventually led to his own downfall and let the good doctor get into his head.
Izuku Midoriya never makes it to his internship one morning. Nighteye brushes it off, thinking he's chickened out of coming to work, until he gets a worried call from the boy's mother saying he never came home. And then Mirio receives a package with a pill inside.
Izuku Midoriya disappears and One For All is passed on. Mirai only truly realizes the grave miscalculation he's made when he sees Toshinori buckled over, crying for his boy, a boy who was so much more than just his successor.
Their grief is shattered with the realization that Izuku Midoriya is not only alive and not well, but a villain; one that is rather comfortable where he is, because the League of Villains seems rather attached to him.
(Izuku's descent into villainy, his crawl up into vigilantism, and his eventual push back into being a true hero.)

It had been two years since Midoriya Izuku had unlocked the potential within One For All and helped end the conflict between Pro Heroes and villains mere weeks after graduating. Sweeping reform had followed in his wake, supported by the public, and he'd become almost isolated as the Number One Hero, liked by former villains and vigilantes and held at a distance by other Heroes.
Tomura didn't really care, content to help shape society as he saw fit, keep the maniacs left under control, occasionally menace the new hero commission, and keep to himself, but then, on an off chance, he made friends with his former enemy. Just maybe the hilarity that came with seeing Gran Torino and All Might almost have a heart attack every time he touched the brat was enough to make him come out of his lair occasionally. (It wasn't a lair, but his new roommate apparently thought it was.)
