    Summary

    The city Izuku lives in has all the bad characteristics- police brutality, assaults, kidnappings, not to mention a serial killer running around with a grotesque Modus Operandi: tearing people apart and eating them.

    Izuku doesn't care for it. He's young and wants to live life a little.
    But when he almost gets assaulted he doesn't know how to explain what he saw. He doesn't know how to explain that the infamous serial killer was there that night.

    He doesn't know how to explain that the beast saved his life.

    Summary

    He insisted her hair be cut short, long locks cropped to her ears. Shouko’s childish complaint that she looked like a boy was met by a harsh slap across the cheek by her father, her young body skidding across the floor from the impact.

    She didn’t complain about it again.

    -----

    Female rebellion, the clashing love for your mother and the terror that you'll end up just as she has, childhoods denied- and the way Shouko Todoroki starts to heal.

    Summary

    "I'm Shouto Todoroki," Izuku looks down at where he and Shouto's hands are still joined. Then he looks back up, squinting at Shouto, mouth quirking downward.

    "Why- What is- Are you my boyfriend or something?"

    Shouto thinks that his heart might have actually stopped, and he chokes on the breath he was taking. He stares at Izuku helplessly. Of course he would think that. He woke up in a hospital bed to a boy that he DOESN'T remember holding his hand, invading his personal space, and calling him by his given name. What else was he supposed to think? He doesn't know that they're oddly close best friends and this is what they do.

    Bakugou starts to snort into his hand. "Yeah, that's your boyfriend alright," he says with mirth, "You're fucking obsessed with each other."

     

    In which a small time thug gives Izuku short time amnesia, and Shouto is left to deal with the repercussions. How can he be honest when this might be his only chance to know what it's like to have Izuku be his?

    Summary

    Todoroki paused, took a shaky breath, and clenched his hands into fists. "My nightmares aren't about the villains we fight."

    Midoriya cocked his head to the side in confusion. "What are your nightm-" He cut off as an image of Endeavor towering over Todoroki flashed through his mind. "Oh," he breathed out.

    Summary

    Todoroki just hums in response, turning his attention to the screen as it lights up. As the opening credits play, he tucks his legs under himself, rearranging his limbs until he’s pressed close close close to Midoriya.

    "Is this alright?" Todoroki turns wide eyes towards him, one brow raised questioningly.

    Midoriya chokes back whatever no not at alls and yes please hold me like this forevers are crawling up his throat and manages a, “Yeah, it’s— you’re fine.”

    Summary

    (Todoroki finds himself participating in a girls' night with Momo and a handful of her friends. It's TodoMomo if you squint.)

    “He’s not like the other guys, is he?”

    “Come on,” Ashido huffed. “Not every guy is like Mineta!”

    Todoroki would have ran the rest of the way to the sink, had Yaoyorozu’s voice not called him back. “You could sit with us, if you’d like,” she offered, a little breathlessly. “We won’t kick you out of the common room, like... Since you’re not going to be untoward, and you don’t seem to think we’re being weird or anything.”

    Summary

    Shouto.”

    He blinks, breaths hitching as his lashes flutter over his cheeks. The word – his name – is breathed into the crook of his neck, soft and reverent like a prayer, the kind of gentleness he had never known before the man cradling him in his arms came into his life washing over him the way calm waters lapped at shores. He never knew the sound of his own name could make him feel like that – never would have believed that someone saying his name could make him want to melt, dissolve into that voice and live inside the lips he could feel smiling against his skin.

    Summary

    What Shouto comes to realize is that Izuku's tears don't mean weakness.

    They symbolize his astounding, ferocious bravery. Izuku will throw himself wholeheartedly into any situation, no matter how much it hurts him, no matter how broken he comes out of it. If Izuku has even a fraction of a chance to do something to help someone else, he'll dive in, tears streaming down his freckled cheeks. He'll endure rejection, and heartbreak, and incredible pain, and never bat an eye at the expense to himself. Izuku will wear himself so thin that he frays at the edges, and stitch pieces of himself into the broken patches of others', and he'll smile while he does it.

    He'll protect anyone, but no one has ever mustered as much severity to protect him in return.

    This makes Shouto want to be the person who does that.
    He finds, as he lays in bed thinking of Izuku's unending support and determination, that he wants to be the one that Izuku can turn to when he finally needs someone to care for HIM.

     

    In which Shouto finds that caring about Izuku is much too easy, and he's in way too deep.

Hanta isn’t sure how he knows, but he’s sure the feeling’s name is Todoroki."

    Summary

    "They’ve been together for a week and Todoroki is almost dizzy from it, from Izuku taking his hand unprompted, or pressing a kiss to Todoroki’s cheek whenever the urge strikes him, or smiling a small, secret smile at him from across the classroom. It baffles him every time he thinks about it. Out of every possible option, Izuku has chosen him. Izuku wants to touch him and spend time with him and talk with him. Izuku, the brightest light in any room he enters, the bravest and the kindest and the best, has chosen Todoroki.

    Todoroki is terrified of ruining it. But more than that, he’s terrified of ruining him."

    Todoroki desperately wants to be a good boyfriend, but he's worried his past traumas have infected him somehow. Made him unfit to be loved. But he'll be damned if he isn't at least going to try.

    (Sequel to ever so gently)

    Summary

    Shouto barely has any experience with friends, so having a crush on his best friend was not something he was prepared for. He's fallen hard, and he’s awkward and unsure what to make of his feelings, or how to act on them. It doesn’t help that he and Izuku seem caught on the delicate line between friends and romance, and Shouto more than anything doesn’t want to ruin their friendship.

    Summary

    "For as long as Todoroki could remember, touch was something to be avoided. Dodging blows in his father’s relentless training or curling in on himself and covering his face to try to hide from the merciless punishment for whatever transgression he had committed this time, touch was always pain, plain and simple. After his mother left, he was never held or kissed. No one hugged him or stroked his hair. People touched him to hurt him."

    Or, Todoroki gets a hug and his whole world shifts on its axis.
