i want to tell you we're all right

[it's a normal u.a. day at a normal u.a. high except for the fact that one of class 1-A's most famous students just had to be saved from falling off a five-story fake building in a routine rescue simulation

thankfully Midoriya's was fast enough to get to Todoroki before he stumbled and fell over the edge of the roof they were using as part of their route— an extremely uncharacteristic move by Todoroki, and one that almost made Midoriya scream out loud.

while it's relatively easy for Midoriya to pull him back and towards the safety of the center of the roof, he still can't quell his feelings of panic. it wasn't like Todoroki to do something that clumsy, and the way he'd been moving all day was off. it's hard for Izuku to keep the shrillness from his voice, the hand he used to grab his friend still tight around his arm.]

Hey! Are you okay?

[ midoriya. izuku.

his name is the only clear thing in a sea of hazy half-thoughts. todoroki feels sort of like he's floating, and his head lulls to the side to gently bump against midoriya's as his eyes flutter closed. ]


[ it's not exactly an answer. he can barely register where he is. ]

I'm fine. Back to training.

[ ignoring his lightheadedness — he has to get back to training. there's no telling what his father will do otherwise.

(his father's not here, not at this school, but todoroki isn't wholly conscious anymore.) ]

[ it's a great idea.

that's exactly why todoroki straight up passes out in deku's arms. just a little nap first... and then... ]

[ it's a good fifteen minutes or so before todoroki blinks his eyes open to a blurry nurse's office, more than a little confused before he turns his head and sees midoriya blinking right back at him.

his owlish eyes trigger the foggy memories into coming back. this shouldn't be happening — thanks to todoroki's quirk, he can regulate his own body temperature, preventing him from catching ordinary colds, but this caught him off guard and knocked him down before he even had a chance to prevent it.

how irresponsible of him. he got someone else involved; got midoriya involved. ]


[ he averts his gaze, that unfamiliar nervousness midoriya triggers so often gnawing at his stomach. when he wonders how he ended up in the nurse's office, he feels like he's on the verge of passing out again. ]

Were you waiting here this whole time?

[ a thank you would suffice, and todoroki knows that, knows midoriya might do this for any one of his friends. but even so... ]

You didn't have to go out of your way.

[ todoroki doesn't think so at all. he's torn between feeling flattered and guilty, but above all, he's grateful. ]

Thank you, Midoriya. You're—

[ he hesitates, heart skipping a beat as he mulls the words over. ]

—a kind person.

[ there's a pause as todoroki seems to puzzle over something. he looks a bit troubled. ]

... How did I wind up here? My memories are sort of hazy. Did Aizawa-sensei bring me?

[ embarrassing. good to know he made a total fool of himself in front of his teacher. ]
