    Summary

    "Running away is just like you, Kacchan.' Izuku rasps, in the closest approximation of a sneer he can give.

    It really is. Izuku's 15, bitter, his own blood drying in his mouth, but he's also five, lonely and hopeful, and now, too, Katsuki averts his eyes. Pretends he isn't looking. Walks away like he doesn't care.

    It isn't fair, Izuku thinks. He's been living in Bakugou's shadow, growing, clawing, fighting because of him. His entire life is one giant fucking response.

    Bakugou Katsuki doesn't get to break him and walk away.

    Or, Izuku's quirk lets him attract objects that are hotter and repel those that are colder. The merits of this change have yet to be determined.

    Summary

    Every story must have a beginning, a middle, and an end; though not necessarily in that order. Some stories start in the middle and tell of the beginning on its way to the end, and some start at the end only to travel backwards all the way to the start. As long as you have those three important parts, you have your story, and countless ways to let them unfold.

    Let us open at the close, for the summary of this story.

    Midoriya Izuku has wanted to be a hero since he was a child, still attending daycare. It was a desire he'd never really elaborated on, but growing up with several prospective heroes, it's a desire he couldn't help but share. Nothing could have prepared him for the road he took to achieve this dream, and nothing could have prepared him for the things he'd lose for it. Still, with every loss there must be gain, and Izuku has decided.

    Knowing where he stands now, and knowing where he started not long ago, there's nothing that could convince him he should've lived his life any differently.

    Summary

    Izuku needed Shouto like polyatomic ions needed oxygen.

    In which Izuku can do many things, but chemistry isn't one of them.

    ***

    "If, um," Izuku stuttered, his face burning red and unable to look fully into Shouto's eyes as he traced the pencil marks on his paper, smudging the graphite lightly. "If oxygen is a diatomic element, then that means it needs at least two, right? It can't be alone."

    He gulped, and whispered shakily, "I'm an oxygen atom. I need one more." He took in a shuddering breath, gathered his courage, and blurted, "can you be my other oxygen?"
