Fan Reactions

Magnificently well done. You handled the ever-thorny question of Villain!Deku’s motivations in contrast to the very personality traits that make him such a good hero (his empathy, his kindness, the mistreatment he suffered going up against his desire to make sure nobody ever faces the same) with incredible grace in this. I think your grammar needs a little work - though not much, as it improved throughout this fic alone - and your pacing could use a little attention (the abrupt switches between past and present were good, but kind of harsh), but this is one of my top three favorite BNHA fanfics overall, and I’ve re-read it a few times since I found it. Now that it’s complete, I’ll have to do so again. I hope to see more of this universe from you in the future, and if not, I’m looking forward to what you write for BNHA in general. Well done.

It was a fun ride, thanks for all the great cackling that I did in the background while everything went to crap! I will continue to keep a lookout for what you do in the future!
