Fanfic / Nights End, Days Begun

Go To

Nights End, Days Begun is the first part of Observing Class 1-A a Worm and My Hero Academia crossover series, where Taylor is assigned to Class 1-A after the uncovering of massive amounts of corruption in the Hero Public Safety Commission.

Nights End, Days Begun contains examples of:

  • Adaptation Expansion: The story shows more of Aizawa actually doing the nitty gritty of being a teacher than the show does. Helping this is the fact he has Taylor as a co-teacher to bounce off of.
  • Advertisement:
  • Adaptational Heroism: Taylor tracked down Himiko after the latter snapped and got her the help that she needed, so she's in Class 1-A instead of the League.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Amy's power works somewhat differently here. Word of God is that this is 100% intentional and not a mistake.
  • Armor-Piercing Question:
    • When Bakugo's parents learn about his bullying, they're both heavily disappointed in him, and his father asks him what kind of hero would do what he did. He can't answer.
    • Endeavor asks his daughter if he's a terrible father. The way she reacts, even if she doesn't say anything, confirms it for him.
  • Demoted to Extra: Toru is sent to Class 1-B. Though not until after Aizawa already spent four hours designing a lesson plan for someone with an invisibility quirk.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: In preparation for the finals, Momo starts researching how to create smoke grenades, since Aizawa saw her use flashbangs at the Sports Festival and knows she can make them. Her partner, Denki, asks what Aizawa could do about the flashbangs. The answer, as one might expect, is not a whole lot.
  • For Want of a Nail: Taylor, Amy, Victoria and Lisa ended up stranded on the My Hero Academia Earth during the bank heist. This led to Taylor eventually tracking down Himiko after she'd snapped, and not only does Himiko get the help that she needs, but Lisa investigating her parents leads to the discovery of a huge amount of corruption, which is why Taylor gets assigned to Class 1-A.
    • Word of God is that they're from a Coil Timeline where he did the Bank robbery but didn't give the go ahead to kidnap Dinah. Because of this there weren't "Some assholes in a white van" to cut off Bakuda in traffic so she managed to get to the bank in time before the PRT set up and tossed in one of her bombs.
  • Goroawase Number: Shinso takes up 4649 as his Hero name. 4649 can be pronounced as "yoroshiku", meaning "nice to meet you" - which fits well with his Quirk.
  • Happily Adopted: Taylor and Amy took in Himiko after Taylor captures her and gets her the help that she needs.
  • Has Two Mommies:
    • Toga is adopted by Taylor and Amy.
    • Kirishima has two mothers.
  • Hidden Depths: Denki has some pretty low self-esteem, his inability to use his powers too heavily without becoming stupid being a massive blow to his self-worth.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed:
    • Taylor significantly undersells her range.

    • Amy's true potential is a closely guarded secret, "officially" she can just rewind a person's body to where it was a few hours ago, rather than her true ability to freely manipulate biology through touch.
  • Living Emotional Crutch: Taylor, and to a lesser extent Amy, to Himiko. She got separated from Taylor in a large crowd once and had a meltdown.
  • Minor Crime Reveals Major Plot: The whole story is kicked with Lisa looking into a serious case of emotional and Quirk neglect and her thread pulling resulting in major corruption uncovered at all levels of Japanese hero society.
  • Mook Horror Show: Taylor spells out to Tomura that he just teleported his goons into an enclosed space. With the only blade user in her class. Who is Himiko, the adopted daughter of Skitter. When the POV changes to Mina's she hears a lot of screaming from where Himiko was teleported. Two minor examples are also seen in the same POV when she sees a massive ice formation and the sounds of explosions from two different areas. By that point Mina realizes how scary her classmates re.
  • My Greatest Failure: In this universe, Taylor lost her arm when she was rescuing people from a building fire set by villains. Unfortunately, a few people still died, which Taylor blames herself for (never mind that she had to be physically restrained to keep her from going back in and getting herself killed), which is why she got a prosthetic limb instead of having her arm regenerated by Amy.
  • Nervous Wreck: Himiko has had at least one nervous breakdown since coming into Taylor and Amy's care.
  • Noodle Incident: Disney movies are not allowed in the Hebert household for some reason.
  • No-Sell: Eraserhead's Quirk fails to negate Taylor's abilities.
  • The Political Officer: Aizawa initially referred to Taylor as this in his head. And he's not completely off the mark either, as Taylor is sent to UA as an Observer after the corruption scandal broke.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Endeavor is appalled to learn that the man in charge of the long term ward where his wife Rei is interned in took his request to ensure Rei was healed and his doubts that it would be safe for her to be around Shoto after her breakdown as a request to keep her isolated no matter what.
  • Stations of the Canon: Follows them pretty straight so far, but doesn't linger on them. He made a comment on how most story's tend to have the USJ become half the story.
  • Therapy Is for the Weak: Brandish was of the opinion that "only crazy people get therapy", which explains a lot about how things got so bad with Amy.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Taylor’s parahuman power is immune to Eraserhead's Quirk, proving that Quirks and parahuman powers are different.
