HJFSNNFNSJS ANGST BRAIN STRIKES AGAIN okay what if after Todo and Izuku get together in Support Course Hero Izuku’s like, I have a super important project I have to finish by Monday, there’s a support item I want to work on for Shouto as a surprise, so I’m going to research and experiment at home all weekend without any distractions! So he heads home with Inko for the weekend and silences his phone because this shit is important and he has to make sure everything is prepared perfectly. He barely sleeps and spends hours researching and probably drinks way too much caffeine but it’s fine, it’s cool.
And then Saturday evening his mom comes in and she’s like uhh hey Izuku? Shouto just called and left a message, he sounded…kinda upset? And Izuku’s like oh crap I should probably check my phone and pales when he sees there’s like 22 missed calls and a mountain of text messages from both Shouto and his friends. Uraraka’s last text reads “Izuku Midoriya I don’t know what’s going on between you and Shou right now but if you intend to ignore him like this I WILL come over to your house to kick your ass in person” and he’s like ohhhh shit. Oh shit—
Shouto’s messages start off with simple questions like “Hey is everything okay you took off in kind of a rush this weekend?” and then “Is something going on? You aren’t answering any calls, are you alright?” which eventually progress into really heartbreaking ones like “Please tell me what’s going on. Did I do something wrong?” and “I promise I’ll fix it, I’ll fix whatever I did, I swear. Just please talk to me, Izuku.” and “Are you angry with me? I’m sorry. I promise I’ll be better”
And Izuku’s like. Fuck. FUCK. He didn’t tell them anything they had no idea what his plans were and then he had to go and silence his phone like a complete dumbass, so Shouto took his unintentional avoidance of his messages as Izuku being angry or wanting to break up with him. Izuku drops everything and says “I’m going back to the dorms” and literally runs across town to get to Shouto, who’s kinda having a nervous breakdown in his room, poor baby :’(
Izuku gets there and Uraraka and Kirishima are like BRO WHAT THE FUCK and Izuku’s like “YES I know I’m a complete disaster and I fucked up now where is my boyfriend” and once they point out that Shouto’s locked himself up in his room since the morning Izuku picks the lock and walks in on Shouto crying while he’s trying to study and Izuku’s like OHHH MY GOD NOOOO WHAT HAVE I DOOOONEEEEE
Izuku bursts into tears and immediately goes to climb into Shouto’s lap while he’s blubbering apologies, and Shouto’s kinda in shock like why is he suddenly here—and Izuku starts explaining that hey, he had a project, he turned his alerts off so he could focus, he never meant to ignore Shouto like this and it was all a huge misunderstanding. Shouto breaks down and he’s like “I thought you were upset because I said on Friday that I wasn’t sure if I was ready for you to meet my family yet” and Izuku’s like OH SHIT that’s why Shouto got so worried that Izuku was upset and wanted to break up with him which is RIDICULOUS, obviously. Izuku spends a good fifteen minutes calming Shouto down and telling him umm hey you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me, I love you so much, we can do this at our own pace and there won’t ever be any pressure and I guarantee there’s not a single thing that could make me break up with you in the entire world. And Shouto’s like. Oh. Good. I feel kind of embarrassed for getting so worked up about it. And Izuku’s like wow I have rubbed off on you a bit too much I think lol welcome to the club
So it starts off angsty as shit and ends fluffily even after Izuku gets chewed out by all of Class 1-A because no matter how much they adore him they WILL go feral to protect their classmates and if anybody sees Shouto Todoroki cry it’s time to fuck shit up. Period. They will come after you and Izuku is not an exception to this rule
