Izuku hasn't seen Bakugou in months. He hasn't spoken to him in two years, and it's been eight years since they had a meaningful conversation. Not that Izuku's counting, because adult Izuku has um, a spine and also self-respect. He wouldn't waste his entire life pining after someone who couldn't care less about him, right? Not even if that person is both figuratively and literally smoking hot? Right?
That would be ridiculous, and Izuku is... ridiculous. Because when Bakugou explosively (again, literally) lands back in Izuku's life, Izuku can't help but try one more time to reconnect. What could possibly go wrong?
