"It hadn’t escaped his notice that Todoroki often liked to fight with him over who was in control during sex. Bakugou loved that fight, truth be told; the struggle, the passion, the fact that he never knew exactly just how things would turn out.
He had also noticed that, on rare occasions, Todoroki didn’t put up much of a fight at all."

“That boy…” His mother gives him a tired smile. “The music he plays is incredibly sad, isn’t it?”
Shouto blinks, because Bakugou’s music has never made him feel anything but an inexplicable feeling of freedom. But that’s the beauty of it, he supposes — that the meaning of music lies in the ears of its beholder.
“I don’t know,” he answers honestly. “But I think it’s beautiful.”
(or: todoroki shouto is a pianist who had sworn never to play the piano again, and bakugou katsuki is the unpredictable maelstrom of a violinist who turns his monotonous world upside down)

“I’m sorry, but I’m not letting you go. I quite like being in my own body.” Todoroki's next breath comes out icy cold, and Katsuki leans as far back as their joint hands will allow.
“Are you fucking hearing yourself?” he sputters, feeling heat crawl up his neck to his ears.
(or: bakugou and todoroki get hit by a body swap quirk, and physical contact seems to be the only answer to their predicament)

“Who’s the mystery man bringing you cookies straight to the library at 10 at night?”
“Mystery man?” Iida scoffed. “You make him sound like some romance novel heart throb- not a wannabee delinquent with anger issues and no conception of parking rules.”
Todoroki coughed to interject before putting an end to the debate with two words.
In which, Todoroki dates the edgy chemical engineering student who keeps stealing his friends parking spaces and is only just learning how to get along with others.

When your incredibly ornery pet cat adores your significant other, they might just be a keeper. Alternately: Todoroki has a long over-due realization of oh hey, we're totally dating, aren't we.
Bakugou looks up at Todoroki with a withering gaze. “Do you expect me to say something like, oh yeah, I’ve come to love you with all the capacity in my withered fucking heart, sweetie? Because I really hope not.”
“I mean,” Todoroki says, “I didn’t anticipate my life ever taking this turn, but I do love you, so I kind of hope to have the sentiment returned?”
“This is the most embarrassing conversation I’ve had in my entire life and you should be grateful I wasn’t fucking outta here like ten minutes ago,” Bakugou says, getting up so fast that Todoroki wonders if he’s experiencing physical whiplash. Todoroki notes that the tips of Bakugou's ears seem to be turning an impressive shade of red.
