Fanfic / Awkward Energy MinaDeku

Go To

Awkward Energy MinaDeku by QuirkQuartz is a My Hero Academia shipping fanfic.

The only reason Midoriya got to talking with Ashido was because his bandages needed reapplying. Still, this small hand of fate was all that was needed to spark a friendship and a far closer bond between the two classmates. I honestly have no idea what their ship name is, so I'ma call it Mina/Deku.

This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Abusive Parents: Endeavour is still a thing after all, and Izuku and Mina becoming a couple doesn't change that.
  • Accidental Pervert: In Chapter 35 Izuku gets an eyeful of Mina after they take Kota to Mandalay when he fell off the divider in the hot-spring. Mina, true to form, starts teasing him about it.
  • Action Girl: Mina and the rest of the U.A. female student body.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Mina's family is given screen time and development.
  • Adult Fear: As this fic does not change much in the way of characters, there are still a lot of the canon ones here.
  • Alternate Universe Fic: See For Want of a Nail below.
  • Badass Adorable: Given the source material this was an inevitability.
  • Badass Teacher: The U.A. teaching Staff as in canon.
  • Boxing Lessons for Superman: Chapter 35 is about this.
  • For Want of a Nail: Mina is given more focus and somewhat displaces Bakugou as a main character since it focuses from her point of view, though he's still pretty integral given their relationships with Izuku.

  • Original Flavour: Follows canon but with Mina taking a more active role in the development of both the story and Izuku.
  • Shared Universe: With Handcrafted.
  • The Tease: Mina will take most of the chances she is given to tease Izuku mercilessly and by god is it funny to watch the poor boy struggle to realize if she is serious or not.
  • Title Drop: The team name that Izuku and Mina end up choosing for their Hero Team.
  • Shout-Out: During Izuku and Mina's first date, they head to a bookstore and purchase some manga and comics; Mina reads Fairy Tail and Izuku reads X-Men.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Mina barely keeps her rage in check when she confronts Bakugou over his treatment of Izuku. Bakugou of course is perfectly fine with throwing down with her and they nearly do before Kirishima and Izuku throw themselves in to pull them apart. Later she goes off at Uraraka when she refers to Izuku as 'Deku', seeing that nickname as anything but affectionate.
