    I've been looking for quality My Hero Academia fics lately, but all I seem to find is slash and harems. Are there any good fics in this fandom yet?

    Ha, I was just thinking about starting this. I've encountered a couple decent ones, I think?

    Just posting the most recent ones that I've found in my Follow list off of FF.net. The last couple have only recently begun, so it's one of those "Will they ever update it? Maybe!" situations.

    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12587314/1/The-Enduring-Hero-Deku - Izuku Midoriya was born Quirkless when his dream was to become a hero like his Idol 'All Might'. But when he was told by All Might himself that he couldn't be a Hero, his dreams are slowly crushed until he was offered the chance by All-Might. But what if Izuku had a Quirk, one that would allow him to endure the hardships of life and become the greatest hero ever.

    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12388534/1/Against-All-Odds - Izuku Midoriya was a nobody. Crushed and humiliated, he was ready to give up on his dream. But when he gets an opportunity to be all that he wished to be, he jumps at the chance, ready to make his own Fate. Against all odds, he will fight until the very end and become who he always wanted to be: The New Symbol of Peace.

    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12435293/1/Dark-Light - In another time Katsuki's fist would have hit causing a bruise to form on Izuku's cheek, however at this time, at this place something else happened. What if a four year old Izuku manifested his Quirk while standing up to his friend? "Lights out"

    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12551994/1/Dormant-Power - Midoriya had a dormant quirk, causing One For All to activate strangely and release a different kind of power. Because of this his entry exam turns out a bit differently than he expected and he's saved by Ashido Mina.

    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12569685/1/The-Emerald-Hero - "You have the ability to overcome great fear for the sake of others." Those were the words on which he was chosen. After the War of Light, the last Power Ring finds its way to Earth and finds a Quirkless boy with dreams of becoming a hero. Villains will soon learn to beware Izuku's Light.

    So yeah, only found a few, but I actually only recently started looking for them. Feels like Academia has a lot of potential, fanfic-wise. Lots of jumping points and an interesting setting that's vague enough to be expanded upon greatly. And hell, with it being based on Superheroes, the crossovers are going to numerous.

    Hope we can find some other good ones.

    Midoriya Izuku has always been written off as weird. As if it's not bad enough to be the quirkless weakling, he has to be the weird quirkless weakling on top of it.

    But truthfully, the "weird" part is the only part that's accurate. He's determined not to be a weakling, and in spite of what it says on paper, he's not actually quirkless. Even before meeting All-Might and taking on the power of One For All, Izuku isn't quirkless.

    Not that anyone would believe it if he told them.

    It's a well written 150k word gen fic with a Deku that can see ghost. Updated not long ago.

    Talented but rotten, Hikigaya Hachiman is almost the ideal student. Hiratsuka Shizuka tries to give him the push he needs to be better. However, in this world of justice, villainy, and the grey in-between, nothing is as straightforward as it seems.

    Note: The Spacebattles link has one extra chapter.

    I realize the irony in me asking for MHA fics and posting a crossover that barely features it (so far?), but I like it. Hachiman's philosophy applied to the world of MHA could be interesting.

    Hachiman's quirk isn't original at all these days, but its not portrayed as annoyingly obnoxious as other fics with characters with the same power.
