Exploding Ice Cubes, Literally
23 Oct 2017
This was just one of those nights. One of those nights, where the illogical seemed plausible and all natural, as if nothing else could’ve been more obvious.
Which was precisely why, Todoroki could be hardly perturbed by the presence of a certain Bakugou Katsuki in front of his door, wearing his default scowl, looking as if he had tons to say.

Bakugou Katsuki has, although with considerable reluctance, many things he likes about his boyfriend.
His hair would be a good place to start.
Then there were his eyes.
And then, of course –
Wait; did he actually not like anything about Todoroki Shouto?

“Don’t ‘yes, Bakugou’ me- I fucking know it’s my name, don’t fucking give me that look- spit it out.”
Don’t make me spell it out, damn it. “Your expression – it’s shitty. Just spit out what’s fucking bothering you.”
“… It’s nothing.”
Bakugou wished he had pressed further, because Todoroki had the exact same expression -
When he suffered from nightmares.

“You have to remember, that that risks you becoming a major liability to one another. In most cases, only one of them makes it out.”
Bakugou Katsuki desperately wished he had kept Eraserhead’s warning from years ago in mind –
Because even now, Todoroki Shouto was dying in his arms, his blood as crimson as his hair.

“You’re the motherfucker that didn’t know how to use the goddamned AC remote when we first met!”
“And I’m telling you for the thirty-sixth time, I KNOW how to use the AC remote!”
“You tried to freeze my fucking dick!”
“Might as well have done so if I could, if you’re going to be such a pain every single day –“
“Can you honestly say that when you had sex with me practically for 25 percent of your life?”
Or: The conversation above is held during a live broadcast of their mission, for everyone in Japan to hear.

“Shit, how do I not cuss in a sentence again?”
“Perhaps you can begin with replacing the first word of that question with something else.”
“Katsuki,” Pressing the bridge of his nose, Todoroki continued, “That’s still a cuss word.”
“I don’t give a damn –“
Age 19, Bakugou Katsuki is re-learning Japanese. Why? The reason is simple: in 3 hours, they were about to meet Todoroki’s mother, and Bakugou suddenly realized the possible importance of using “appropriate language” when encountering his boyfriend’s only sensible parent.

The night sky of the city has no stars, only a cloud-disguised crescent moon, the cacophonous honks of cars on a typical Valentines in the background, a clichéd riverside date, with a can of ginger tea and bottle of strawberry milk hitting against the legs of the bench along the early breeze of spring, with a terrifically amateuristic knot of red string in place of an engagement ring –
They both wouldn’t have it another way, because –
They are like Exploding Ice Cubes, Literally.
I love you.
Or: A road to their future, exploring the love of 38 years old - Bakugou and Todoroki, together.
