Butterfree - How to be a Good Boyfriend
Because he's useless and weak, Zenitsu can't find it in himself to deny his Gramps at all. His mouth runs faster than his mind can catch up. "Ah, y-yeah! It's true. I am seeing someone."

Or that one story where Zenitsu ropes Tanjirou into pretending to be his boyfriend in order to meet his Gramps.

Anonymous - bigger and brighter than space
It's not doing much to help Katsuki fight the urge to run his fingers through those mossy curls or trace the freckles on his face, illuminated like stars in the soft evening light. But he's not going to do that shit because that would mean torturing himself when Deku inevitably pulls away before they part. They're not together. They ain't dating.
He fantazises about it anyway.

Macbetha - Coral and Bone
It was just supposed to be a nice little summer at his dad's. Makoto didn't expect to b swept up in ocean waves and sweet heat and chewed lips, nor did he expect to cerish the slightest upturn of someone's mouth or how they turn away to blush. And Makoto really, really, wasn't expecting there to be mermaids.

mynameis152 - Someone Borrowed
It felt like hours that he stared at Izuku, coming to terms with the fact that a man, his childhood best friend, whom he hadn't seen since their senior year of high school, was there in front of his very eyes. Then his brows furrowed and his jaw clenched before he uttered through gritted teeth the very name Izuku had longed to hear for years.

BecauseIAmMildlyAshamed - Off Limits
When his second rut hit, Katsuki was tempted to start reconsidering Izuku being off limits. It wouldn't be too weird, right? Ir's not like they were hanging out on their off days. While screaming into a pillow in a fit of frustration instead of rubbing himself raw, it seemed like a great idea.

Once his rut stared tapering off, he threw away the idea again.
Then the third rut hit, and Katsuki was officially over this bullshit.

Love_Ignition - A Hero Awakens
Katsuki's entire life up until this point had basically been a lie. He'd learned to be a master of deception, never letting anyone get too close, never letting anyone know his true self. Everything had been focused on one goal, graduating rom high school and finally becoming the number one hero he knew he was destined to be. But his future was balanced on a knife's edge, thanks to the one person who always managed to find a way to get under his skin. He was the itch Katsuki just couldn't scratch, and no matter how hard he tried to deny it, Deku was always on his mind.

Izaioi - The Price of a Quirk
Izuku's quirk was nowhere to be seen. Katsuki's quirk was keeping everyone away. Shouto's quirk was preventing him from making close friends. Ochako's quirk was forcing her to be friendly. Toshinori's quirk was worthy of the title of Number One National Enemy.

What is the price for a quirk?
In a society where dangerous quirks are automatically targeted and placed in a special environment... Where every quirk has risks and a price to pay... What happens when you suddenly get something you never wished for?

Merrywetherweather - Grief Counseling
Katsuki remembered the first time he had failed to save someone, watched helplessly in horror as an elderly man had been crushed beneath the girth of a thrown car. He had already propelled himself forward to grab a small boy when he noticed, too late, the car fly by overhead. Two other heroes had been on the scene at the time and had assured him.

There was nothing that could have been done.

Most of class 1-A had already gone through a similar experience. The only one left with a clean track record in the rescue department had been Deku.

Well, except for today.

iknewaman - Learning Curve
"Izuku." Uraraka repeats as she motions at the person stood next to her. Green curls, average height, and, well. Up close, not such a bad smile. Uraraka points a thumb at Bakugou and enunciates slowly. "This is Bakugou. He can speak sign language too."
Wait, Signt language?
The stranger--well, Izuku-- looks at him with a raised brow. Their free hand lifts up as they make a slight motion of the hand.

Bored out of his mind at a house party one night Bakugou is introduced to Izuku, a deaf student who offers to help teach Bakugou sign language in exchange for a favour-- or well, is prompted into asking for a favour.

And, although both of them know that Fate is never wrong... there have -got- to be exceptions. After all, this match cannot possibly be anything but a mistake. Right?
