It was time! Today is the day me and Izuku (possibly) start our work studies. We just need to be accepted into Sir Nighteye's Hero Agency. I know I have a pretty good chance, but considering Izuku is basically All Might 2.0, he might not be too psyched about him considering their history. But with his skill, I'm sure Nighteye can see his resolve.

"Here we are. Nighteye Agency." Mirio says, his unending smile still disturbing me slightly. We walk in.

"So, what do we have to do to get him to recognize us?" I asked him.

"Well, I know a sure fire way for him to accept you both." Mirio answers.

"And how do we do that?" Izuku asked.

"Simple, really." Mirio says as we walk up the stair to his office. "You just need to make him laugh."

"Is a man like him even capable of laughter?" I ask aloud.

"Pffhaha! That's what most people say!" Mirio talks while trying to hold back his own laughter. "It's hard, he's not an easy nut to crack. But I'm sure you'll both do fine." He encourages us. We approach Nighteye's office, and Mirio opens the door. "Hey Sir! I brought those two student's I told you about yesterday!" Mirio announces as he enters.

What we saw was...interesting. To say the least. In the middle of the room was this massive tickle torture machine, and locked into was a rather cute girl with blue skin, who seemed to be a hero of this Agency, being tickled mercilessly by what seemed to be fluffy cat toys. A talk, lanky man stood slouched in front of the machine, watching the tickle torture happen. He didn't seem to be enjoying it, but he also didn't stop it.

To my right, Izuku ducks his head down, and comes back up with the best All Might impression I've ever seen in my life. "I am Izuku Midoriya!" He greets himself.

Sure, it wasn't funny. But it was sure as hell impressive. I've never seen a more accurate depiction of All Might's face before. But Nighteye didn't seem to appreciate it all that much. His glare hardened, making Izuku flinch and freeze. "What is this, boy...? Are you ridiculing All Might...?!" He growled, and walked over to him, picking at is face. "All Might has more wrinkles under his eyes. Like this." The man fixed Izuku's face.

Now that I look at it, he was right. Izuku looked more like the current All Might. "I have no time for wannabe Heroes. Just leave while you're ahead. And you-"

"Do you recall the vinegar river incident?" Izuku asked.

"Yes, I do recall that day. It was before I teamed up with him." Nighteye nods.

Izuku and Nighteye the start to geek out about how much All Might fans they are. Honestly, I don't know how they can remember every single insignificant detail about one person. It was kinda creepy.

"I suppose I underestimated you. And you, girl? What do you have to show?" He glared at me next.

"No joke. I'm not funny." I straight admit to him. "Though if you wish to test me in other ways, I'll be happy to oblige." I add.

"Very well." Nighteye says, and sits at his desk. "You wish to work under me for your Work Studies, that is the gist of things, corrects?" He asked.

Me and Izuku nod.

"You are aware of how these work studies function, yes?"

"Yes sir. Like internships, we work alongside Pro Heroes to gain experience. But unlike internships, we are not guests. We are Heroes, and are to assist in most any situation." I answer him.

"Correct." He nods again. "Starting with the boy..." Nighteye raised a stamp into the air, and dramatically brings it down. On the table surface next to Izuku's registration form. He missed.
