"A Worthless Quirk"

Chapter One - Humble Beginnings

Hello World! I am here with the very first chapter of "A Worthless Quirk"! While this first chapter isn't very long, I hope that some of your readers can manage to enjoy it!

(Disclaimer: I, in no way shape or form, own "Boku no Hero Academia")

All Might looked at the young middle schooler in front of him. The boy was staring down at the ground with a notebook tightly clutched in his hands. All Might placed his hand on the boy's shoulder and sadly said, "With your quirk, you can't be a hero..."

About 10 years earlier...

A four year old Izuku Midoriya stared at his hands in wonder, "Mommy! I did it! I did it!" He ran to find his mother.

"What got you so excited?" Inko Midoriya asked as she looked up from the apple she was cutting.

"I got it! I got my quirk!" Izuku was bouncing up and down in his happiness, "Now I can become a hero like All Might!"

Inko smiled at her son warmly, "What quirk is it?"

Instead of speaking, Izuku dropped a pebble on the floor and held his hand out towards it. As if pulled by an invisible force, the pebble picked itself up and started floating toward the young boy's hand.

Inko's smile grew larger with motherly pride, "It's just like my quirk!" She told him, demonstrating on an apple that was sitting on the counter. Izuku stared in awe at the apple floating into his mother's hand.

"Will I be able to pick up big things too?" He asked with wide eyes.

"If you try hard enough, you'll be able to do anything!" His mother told him ruffling his hair.


Izuku was knocked down by a large explosion, "That was mean Kacchan! Why did you do that?" The young boy asked, tears threatening to spill from his eyes.

He had gone to go tell his friend Kacchan or, Katsuki Bakugou, about how he had finally gotten his quirk. But instead of congratulating him, he laughed at him.

"Deku, do you think you can be a hero with a pitiful quirk like that?" Katsuki held up his palms and let out a couple explosions, "With your quirk, you can't be a hero!"

Katsuki laughed and walked away, leaving a burnt and crying Izuku sitting on the ground.

About 10 minutes before, about 10 years later...

A 14 year old Izuku Midoriya clutched his burnt notebook tightly as he walked home. The words of his childhood friend still rung through his head. Just earlier that day, Katsuki had blown up his notebook and tossed it out the window. But when Izuku tried to stop it from falling with his quirk, he got stopped by the teacher. Who told him that it was agains the rules to use quirks in school.

"Stupid teacher! Showing favoritism..." His monologue was interrupted when he was grabbed from behind and his mouth filled with water. Izuku tried to yell for help, but he couldn't speak.

"Oi! Keep quiet!" The kidnapper yelled at him, "Now what's your quirk? It better be something powerful!"

Izuku tried to escape but the kidnapper's grip was to strong.

"Ha! You won't be able to get out! My quirk turns my entire body into water!" The culprit, who was some form of sentient sewage, laughed at Izuku's struggle, "Now! Let's try out your quirk!"

Izuku felt his conscience fading.


"My boy, are you alright?"

Izuku opened his eyes and saw his idol All Might standing in front of him.

"All Might!?" He shot up, wide awake.

"That is right my boy! I apologize that you got caught up in my villain fighting!"

"No! It's fine! I'm just glad that I finally got I meet you!" Is what Izuku would of liked to say, but it came out as, "A-A-Al-All M-M-M..."

"Well crime never rests! I must be off my boy!"

"Wait! Could you-" Izuku grabbed his notebook that was lying next to him and opened it to the first blank page. But instead of it being blank, there was already a large English signature that covered two whole pages.

'He already signed it!' Izuku thought in surprise.

"Thank you! Thank you so much! I've treasure it forever!"

"Very well my boy! Now, I really must be going!" All Might said with his signature smile. He turned around and got ready to jump.

"Wait!" All Might looked over his shoulder, "Before you go... Can I ask you something?"

"You already have my boy!" All might said with a laugh, "But very well! What is it you would like to know?"

"Well... I have a quirk... It allows me to attract light objects. But I can't attract things over 3 meters away from me, and it can't be over 5 kilograms... I was wondering... With this quirk, can I become a hero?" Izuku stared at the ground as he asked.

All Might looked at the young middle schooler in front of him. He placed his hand on the boy's shoulder and said, "With your quirk, you can't be a hero…"

And there you have it! Chapter one of what is sure to be a very very poorly written fanfic. If you have suggestions feel free to tell me, don't hold back!

Also! I'm not sure about how to write grown up Kacchan. It wouldn't feel right for him not to be swearing, but I don't want to have to up the age rating. So yeah! Go ahead and tell me what you think! Or don't. It's your choice.
