Title: Victim of Circumstance
Summary: When you’re a Quirkless orphan on the streets, you have to fight twice as hard for just about everything. Survival. Respect. Allies. Most of the time, you’re just barely scraping by. And, for that matter, so is everyone else around you.
So Izuku does what he does best: he helps. Sometimes that means mediating gang disputes; other times, it’s something as simple as grocery shopping. It’s not like anyone else will, after all.
With so many hopes riding on him, there’s only ever been one option. Quirk or no Quirk, UA or no UA—he’s going to become a hero.
