the hero we all need but don't deserve

  • me before Wonder Woman: I don't really like superheroes, they're unrealistically overpowered characters that usually exist to feed power fantasies, besides that action and battle scenes bore me.
  • me after Wonder Woman: I would watch a 3 hour film of the Amazons just practicing battle as well as anything featuring Diana, princess of Themyscira, demi-goddess, daughter of Zeus, too good for all of us, the hero we need but we don't deserve, my lovely sunflower bright and radiant-

For some reason I've really latched on to the idea of villain!Izuku doing the thing from that one John Mulaney bit where he steals old photos from the houses of people he meets just because "it's the one thing you can't replace!" It's basically the closest thing he has to a "take over the world" style master plan. The Villain Alliance is not impressed

izuku pisses off the villain alliance on almost every single level. he’s crafty and clever, his special flavor of tactical brilliance and random whimsical chaos makes him massively destructive and almost impossible to catch, and he is one of the most highly visible and high-profile villains out there – right along with stain. (he even runs a social media account with way too many followers. what the hell.) so why the fuck doesn’t he do anything useful? 

like the time izuku spent the course of two nights planting a series of traps in high-security locations across musutafu (in the police force station, in various museums, in the biggest hero agencies) and they all went off at the same time the next day, but instead of bombs, they just explode into too much glitter and confetti and a banner that reads “[IZUKU’S VILLAIN NAME] WAS HERE.” come on! 

or the time izuku broke into a news station as they were recording, grabbed the microphone and announced that he wanted to fight endeavor. he named a time and place. he actually showed up. endeavor and the police force were waiting there to arrest him, but izuku incapacitates their cars (slashes all their tires somehow? when did he do that?) and taunts endeavor into chasing him across the city. izuku leads him around completely by the nose. it is obvious to everyone watching that izuku is controlling the flow of this fight. the only casualty by the end of that night is endeavor’s dignity, but – it’s so frustrating. if izuku is so capable why didn’t he just?????? incapacitate or kill endeavor?????????????

or the time the police force and heroes make a concerted effort to root out the villain alliance. there are a ton of undercover cops/heroes; some of them have been in deep cover for years; some of them are new. izuku hears about this, and naturally, he decides to spread around a little chaos. but instead of doing something helpful, like misdirecting the moles or obfuscating the villain alliance’s movements, izuku uses his vast information network to spread rumors like shigaraki tomura’s many hands are actually sawed off mannequin hands and he wears them because he thinks they look cool or every tuesday the villain alliance gets together for team bonding activities, like wii sports or arson, that’s why they get along so well or dabi is actually secretly endeavor’s bastard son. he’s doing this for attention. this all could have been prevented if endeavor wasn’t such a dickhead. the rumors take permanent hold in the underground. the villain alliance hates him. HATES HIM. 

but one time himiko invited him to destroy a warehouse with her, and he said he didn’t have anything to do that night so he did. on the other hand, when shigaraki tried to convince him to join the villain alliance and put his skills to better use, izuku laughed and told shigaraki that his vision was too small. “i have way better things to do with my time than destroy society, but if you ever need a hand, you can always hit me up.” a wink, finger guns, and then he rolls out the window and disappears. dabi asks if that was a pun. shigaraki loathes izuku with his entire being. 

izuku still pops in occasionally to see if shigaraki is “still on about the whole destroying all might thing,” mooch a couple drinks off of kurogiri, play a game of don’t-get-stabbed-by-himiko, and generally make a nuisance out of himself. somehow, izuku manages to grow on them. like a fungus. it’s so terrible and shigaraki hates every moment. 

all for one just seems amused and tells shigaraki to be patient; it seems he may have a joker on his side. 

I see a lot of posts reminding me that Hunk needs to be appreciated and loved more as a character, but I personally get a good amount of Hunk on my dash. You know who I don’t see as often as I’d like? Pidge.

Give me more Pidge fanart and memes and headcanons. Pidge’s family, garrison Pidge, platonic Pidge friendships, Pidge ships. I don’t care, get it on my dash. Suffocate me with the Pidge love. She is the tiny sassy hero we all deserve

What if everything that's happened since Leo's coma is just his coma dream? Makes kinda sense? 1) Leo's the Hero™ and usually is the one to say the day, 2) space. Space nerd Leo would totally focus on space and have his space heros dreams come true, 3) weirdly focused on splinter dying all the time, 4) heterosexual relationships all around (rose colored glasses, doesn't see shini/Karai, capritello). Idk if I've fudged some details, I haven't watched the show since Donnie got disintegrated

on a level, “it was all a dream” would be so great at this point, if a bit disconcerting… since leo and raph’s treatment of their younger brothers has gone pretty far into the abuse territory. and leo has just been… all around kind of awful to his family/friends for a good three seasons since that coma of his.

on the one hand: none of that stuff happened and canon isn’t actually a shithole!

on the other hand: leo has some worrying power hierarchy fantasies for his family.

i actually can’t tell which would be worse any more.

my fav headcanon for villian deku is he can be found sleeping in increasingly improbable places (the drycleaners, on a roof, on a vending machine, ?in a vending machine?, etc)

anon you and i are on the same page. you are absolutely, completely right. this is something i have believed from the bottom of my heart from the very beginning of this au. 

it doesn’t take long to figure out that izuku’s version of “sleeping” is just catching a catnap in whatever weird place he deems safe at that moment, and sometimes that means walking into a classroom and seeing izuku snoozing on the top of the cabinet. 

it’s sort of flattering that izuku finds class 1-a and select other people who are part of yuuei safe enough to sleep around, until they think about it too long and realize a) this implies izuku doesn’t get much opportunity to have long, uninterrupted periods of sleep, if he has to resort to catnaps all the time, and b) izuku must feel safer around yuuei, a hero school, full of people who are supposed to arrest him, than around wherever else he’d been sleeping before.

I recently started following you because of your fic "but you gotta.." when I was saw your villain!deku ideas and I just fell in love with it! I haven't seen anything about All Might yet but I like to think he's like Deku's almost/kind of father that is trying to parent him while simultaneously fulfilling his duty as a hero all the while constantly asking himself just how he basically adopted one of the most notorious super villains.

my theory is actually that izuku still hero worships all might and has a TERRIBLE celebrity crush, he fanboys hard on his social media account and everyone knows!! but izuku is too shy to actually try stalking tracking down the hero he admires most! mostly he just posts about how cool all might looked in his most recent battle, did you see that,all might is so incredible and izuku would probably die if he ever met him in real life. 

one day though. one day izuku spots all might fighting a villain – and he can’t help but follow all might around, watching with round eyes as all might fights. the villain is a slippery one, and manages to slip away – and so, all might lands next to izuku on the roof while he’s looking for the villain. ah, hello, says all might; did you happen to see someone pass this way, by any chance? izuku, too awestruck to say anything, points wordlessly after the villain. all might takes off. 

afterwards, izuku gushes about how he ACTUALLY SAW ALL MIGHT, he ACTUALLY HELPED ALL MIGHT, and he is just extremely happy about the entire thing but entirely too shy to actually try approaching all might again. 

anyways, he’s not stupid. there are heroes he can fight, and there are heroes he can’t. most heroes have pretty obvious counters, if you think them through; but there is very little izuku can do to counter simple, overwhelming strength. if all might knew he was a villain, and all might decided to arrest him, there’s nothing izuku can do. and as much as izuku admires all might so, as much as he wants – izuku isn’t ever going to risk putting his freedom on the line like that. 

but. 

if yagi toshinori meets an enthusiastic and cheerful civilian boy at his favorite coffee shop – if they’ve struck a strange acquaintance, if said boy talks to toshinori about his favorite heroes and asks after toshinori’s day – well. 

there’s nothing strange about two civilians being acquainted with each other. 

i’d also like you to consider: instead of all might taking in izuku, strangely enough, it’s actually a combination of detective tsukauchi and eraserhead. 

aizawa objects strongly to this, but somehow it’s happened anyways.

Wondercon Heroine should read that post and plug the Trevor Project fundraiser. They don't want everyone to know that we're actually doing good shit, because that ruins the narrative that we're just a bunch of bitter, angry lesbians. If I wasn't half a world away I would 100% be the wondercon heroine.

Who’s going to be the hero we need and deserve at Wondercon? I hope she is equal parts draggy and eloquent and smart. We need to drag this man publicly in front of all his fans and cast. I want Eliza and Lindsay’s face on camera when it happens.
