Soulmates are just as common as quirks these days, everybody has a soulmate, either platonic or romantic. Whether a person's soulmate was platonic or romantic was simply on how what ever higher being deemed it to be. A person can find their soulmate by a image on a part of their body that (commonly) associated with or resembles that person's quirk or personality.

Shouto Todoroki didn’t know what to expect when he notices two images slowly reveal themselves to him as he was brushing his teeth. An Owl and a glowing torch. His eyes widened a fraction before he looked at himself in the mirror.

I have two soulmates..they probably would hate me…

He glanced at the scar covering his left eye, a reminder of why he resents his horrible father. The reason he refuses to use that man's quirk, why he will be the best hero by only using his Mothers quirk.

Nobody would love a boy who has an ugly scar anyway….

He started to plan how to cover the two images on his right arm from his father. So at least they’ll be protected from him.

“I’ll ask sister about it later.” He mumbled lowly


A few miles away a smaller boy was just finding out his soulmates, the images appeared during his bath. He was happily washing his legs so they can be clean and to prevent an infection due to the multiple scrapes and cuts from the day when the image of a smoking ice cube showed up.

The boy shouted with glee upon the seeing the mark, unaware of the second image that was showing up somewhere else..

“Mom!! Mom!! I have a soulmate!!!” He shouted, his mom ran to the bathroom to find her son with his leg propped up on the edge of the tub, the image clear as day. Inko smiled with him then pointed to his chest.

“It looks like you have more than one my sweet boy.”

He looked down to where she was pointing and saw a small tank engine materializing right in the middle of his chest. Big fat tears fell from his eyes and down his face.

“My baby boy, my sweet, sweet baby boy!” She pulled her son close to her heart as they both cried tears of joy


Iida Tenya has a schedule to keep, its a strict schedule at that. Most of what he does is on a time restraint. When he wakes up, when he goes to school, ect, ect. But he made that stuff up himself, he liked the order and repetition of it. It kept him grounded in a way.

During his 9:00 pm daily study time, a image appeared before his very eyes. On the back of his left hand was a bunny, he stared at in awe, his finger gently tracing the outline of it. Getting up from his chair in the dining room he walked to where his older brother Iida Tensei was and gently tugged at his shirt.

“Hm? What’s up little bro?” Tensei glanced at his phone for the time “It’s not time to eat dinner yet..” Tenya held out his hand to show the mark to him. Tensei looked at the mark and gently ruffled his little brothers’ hair.

“That’s a soulmate mark, you have a special person waiting for you. Can I check to see if you have another one?” he asked. Tenya nodded and allowed him to check. First he checked the rest of his arm, then his legs where his shorts don’t cover. Grabbing the hem of Tenyas’ shirt Tensei asked again “Is it okay if I check?”

Tenya hesitated in his answer, he was curious to know so he nodded. Tensei glanced over his chest, no new marks. But when he was turned around Tensei saw another mark, right on Tenya’s left hip. “Tenya! You have two soulmates!” Tensei nearly shouted. Tenya moved his arms in a chopping motion and said

“I have two? Is that bad?” Tensei shook his head. “It’s a good thing. It means you have two people who complete you and makes you feel happy.” Ruffling his hair once more Tensei got up to tell their mom and dad. Leaving Tenya to his thoughts.

“Two soulmates? I won’t let them down!!”

(Izuku pov, a few years later in middle school)

I can’t wait! This is the last year of middle school! I haven’t given up my dream to becoming a hero, so I plan to take the test at U.A so I can get into the heroics classes. If I didn’t then plan B was the general Ed classes. I’ve done a good job of hiding the soulmate mark on my leg-I always wore bandages cause of all of the rough shoving and such from Kacchan-

Or so I thought

“Hey deku! What’s with that shitty thing on your leg?!” Kacchan yelled from across the room. Him and the rest of the class looked at me from where I stood at the classroom door.

“My soulmate mark..” I mumbled to myself. Everybody started to laugh at me. I knew what was going to happen, so I held my breath when I heard Kacchan walk over to me.

“A soulmate mark? Fucking pathetic,” He spat, I could hear his quirk going off in his hands as he spoke “I feel sorry for that extra, their soulmate is a quirkless piece of shit!” He roughly shoved me back then laughed as he walked away.

I sat there on the floor, thinking of what he said. quirkless. Would my soulmates want to be around me?? All these years after I found out I was quirkless, I had completely forgotten about it when my Soulmate images showed up…

I pushed myself up and walked over to my seat and let the day drone on slowly, counting the seconds until school is over so I can run home and hopefully make it to see the hero news reports so I can update my hero journals.

“Ok so I shall pass around the- awe who cares you guys want to be heros right?!” The teacher shouted. The class roared in excitement, everybody going off on what schools they’re going to apply to.

“So Bakugou is applying to U.A I see.” Kacchan nodded and fired off his quirk

“I’m going to be the first person from this dumbass school to go to the top school in the country! I better not see any of you extras-” He shouted, then was interrupted by the teacher. “- Oh Midoriya you are applying too right?”

Kacchan halted in his earlier movements to turn to my desk behind him. Then laughed. “You?? That’s the dumbest thing I ever heard!” He grabbed me by the collar of my shirt and lifted me off the ground.

“How can a quirkless loser like you even think of going to U.A?! You’ll get destroyed at the exams!” He threw me down to the ground and grinned “You shouldn’t think of applying or else.”

The bell rang for the end of the class period and I got up to get my stuff so I could leave. But Kacchan grabbed my hero analysis journal #13 and singed it with his quirk. “Stop fucking writing in your worthless journals and fucking jump off the roof of the school.” With so much grace he threw it out the open window. “Just pray that you’ll be born with a quirk in your next life. Take a swan dive off the roof as well!” And with that him and his lackeys left the now empty classroom.

As soon as they left I ran to the window to see where my journal ended up. It didn’t look like it ended up in the fountain which is good… I grabbed my stuff and ran down to the fountain to get my journal and walk home.

“At least it didn’t end up in the fountain, burns I can deal with, but waterlogged is a different issue in itself. I can still read it when the outsides are burned, but I’d have to write it all over again if it fell in the water..” I mumbled aloud

I took a shortcut under a bridge wanting to get home asap, not realizing that I was being followed.

“OO a lanky kid! This should be quick!”

In the blink of an eye this monster-which smelled like suedge I might add-was suffocating me. I tried to fight it off, but due to my lack of a quirk,,I was getting nowhere

“Oi! Keep still kid i’m almost done.”

I could barely see anything, and i’m losing consciousness fast, but before I could I heard the distant but familiar cry.
