Midoriya and Shigaraki get hit with a Quirk that basically locks the both of them in an indestructible box and makes them unable to physically harm each other. The only way for them to get out?
They have to reconcile their differences.
Obviously, this is easier said than done.
(not a ship fic, but ig this could be read as pre-slash? shrug)

Ace works Makino's bar as a favor and finds he likes it a little more than he anticipated.
(Ace finds peace and stability in a future he never would have considered otherwise.)

“Gomu Gomu no…Pistol!”
Luffy’s fist hits the boulder with a satisfying crunch, destroying the top half of it completely, and Ace feels pride fill him as Luffy lets out a loud cheer at his success.
“Not bad,” Thatch mutters consideringly, and Ace smiles proudly as Marco nods in agreement.
His little brother has grown strong.
He’d be lying if it didn’t make him feel relieved.
Luffy’s about to rear up for another punch to destroy the rest of it, still not having noticed them, (Ace snickers internally at the fact that his brother is just as spatially unaware as he used to be), when Ace calls out, “Don’t mess up!”
Luffy, of course, completely messes up, punching way wide and almost punching himself in the face as he whirls around to face Ace. He looks eerily like his seven-year-old self as he stares at Ace, his confused head-tilt on full-force. Then, recognition shines in his eyes, and Ace grins as his little brother’s face lights up, a beaming smile appearing on his face.
(Or: Ace and the Whitebeards visit Dawn Island a couple months before Luffy sets out, and shenanigans happen.)
When Red-Haired Shanks needs a break from the New World’s intrigues and power plays, he heads eastward.

"Is this a power play?" Thatch asked. "This feels like a power play."
"What?" Marco blinked.
Thatch didn't say anything. Instead, he just pointed into the distance.
Marco followed his finger with his gaze, turning to stare to where he was pointing. He stared into the distance.
“I thought Red Hairs parted ways with Strawhats a while ago?”
“Right?!” Thatch turned to him, gesturing wildly at the two ships. He almost seemed panicked. “That’s what I heard, too!”
Or: Luffy is the older brother and hasn't heard from his little brother in months. He decides to check up on him.
