11 Jun 2019
Scarred fingers trace the topography of Shouto’s hipbones, sinking between the hills and valleys of his muscles with a frightening amount of familiarity that never ceases to be surprising. He’s an exposed nerve, all pulsing rhythms and fingers fisted in bedsheets, skin drawn taut over a skeleton that doesn’t feel like his own.
Yes, Shouto wants to sob, but his voice always seems to fail him at times like these. Whatever you want, take it, take me, I’m yours, I’m yours.
I’ve always been yours.
(In which Izuku and Shouto propose an arrangement that doesn't really work for either of them. A pro hero friends-with-benefits fic about adults with complicated feelings.)

Shouto blinks. “I’m… sorry?”
(In which Midoriya Izuku asks his boyfriend a question, and Todoroki Shouto has a minor post-sex crisis. Fluff.)
