let me tell you the story of a man.
he’s a powerful super hero who half the world looks up to for guarding and guidance.
this man has a son/protégé who he specifically made to be his successor.
he purposefully arranges it so the boy inherits his powers.
he trains him hard to take his place, and through action and words makes it clear that this is how the boy can earn his recognition.
but it turns out that the powers don’t work the same for the protégé as the man. they end up hurting, even disfiguring the boy every time he uses them.
what starts out as the boy trying to prove himself…
turns into the boy spiralling into physical and psychological self-destruction.
the man tries to keep the protégé from continuing down this path
but he has lit these feelings inside his protégé a long time ago.
and it’s too late to the say the words the boy needed to hear all this time ago.
now the question is, can someone help the boy snap out of this self-destructive death spiral?
or will the story end with

Izuku was ready to give up.
He's so injured and exhausted that he's literally falling over. He can't even stand anymore.
"A reckless rampage, born of anxiety and impatience...you take on the world alone...to the point of exhaustion and ruin."
He's been working himself to the bone for so long he's famous for it. He wants so badly to win this war and save everyone that he'll never admit how broken he is.
But I think, deep down, he knows it. He's suffering. This is destroying him. Look at how lifeless his eyes have become.
He's trying to convince himself to fight, but he's not even trying to break free. He says he has to master One for All completely so everyone can smile again, together. But Izuku's not smiling anymore. He's beaten, broken, and just so tired of this. But then...
But then he's saved. By the one person who can get him back on his feet-
Kacchan. His symbol of victory.
"If there's anything that could bolster Izuku Midoriya now, it would be..." .
It would be Kacchan. He is, canonically, the one thing that can get Izuku to rally. The one person who can truly save him.
And the light immediately returns to Izuku's eyes.
Save to win, and win to save, y'all.

WOW okay this only took me a whole month to finish this part! I only have myself to blame
Anyway that’s a pretty neat near death experience you just had there, Izuku, surely there’s scientific explanation as to why you’re coming out unscathed.
I still don’t have a solid name for my AU yet, but for the time being I’ll just be tagging it as ‘Demon Dynamight and Deku’ because I enjoy how tongue twisty it gets when you say it five times fast
