    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

    Shoto and Izuku graduated 3 years prior, and since then Izuku, now the Number One Hero, hasn't rested a day. He's been to busy reforming the hero world, stoping villains, and even managing public relations with his audience. With all this on his plate, Shoto expected his friend wouldn't have time for him anymore ... he was very wrong.

    He knows he's been falling in love with Izuku ever since high school, and even now as a Pro Hero that scares him. How will he handle all the problems in his life (ranging from villain battles to nosy reporters), and will he find a way to tell his friend how he feels? Or will he give into his anxieties and hide those emotions forever?

    (Aged Up Pro Hero fic! Mostly just fluff + insecurities + me being self indulgent about Todoroki having a happy and successful life)

    Summary

    One way or another, Hanta finds himself being drawn back to Todoroki again and again. The boys learn to lean on each other.

    "Hanta gives himself five seconds to fully experience whatever warm emotion is swelling in his chest. It expands like hot air, pressing on his aching ribs and crawling up his throat; it worms between his heart and lungs and curls up like a contented cat. Hanta isn’t sure how he knows, but he’s sure the feeling’s name is Todoroki."

    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.

    Summary

    So what if Todoroki had a thing for being picked up - for being held?

    He thought he was entitled to things like that, as long as Midoriya didn't mind.

    Summary

    Todoroki Shouto had never known anyone quite like Midoriya Izuku. The strength of Midoriya’s quirk paled in comparison to the power of his heart. And it, more than any superhuman power, was what defined him.

    Midoriya didn’t think before he acted, he felt. Shouto had a lot to learn about that.
