*Disclaimer Blood Moon is a NSFW, guy-guy pairing fan-fic so skip my commentary if that’s a problem for you*

What if a near-death experience pushed Bakugo and Deku together as more than just rivals?

I just spent three days (and nights) reading the most exquisite Baku x Deku fanfic. It’s called “Blood Moon” written by @atomicblonde. I never thought that I would read something so perfect, so enthralling. I read it during my commute, during my work breaks, at night when I really should have been sleeping. LOL Evidently, I am late to the game because it was finished in 2018 but I don’t think that I could have fully appreciated it then (I didn’t really get into Boku no Hero Academia/My Hero Academia until the end of last year).

The way she has portrayed Deku and Bakugo as flawed, imperfect, fully human characters endeared me right away. Blood Moon is 27 chapters long and was originally only supposed to be a One Shot but I’m glad that she didn’t stop there. I was angry, I was happy, I was frustrated, and let’s not lie, the sex scenes were STEAMY as hell!!

Blood Moon starts off in their third year at UA, 6 months after a fight with a villain led to a near death experience. Bakugo and Deku secretly seek solace in each other’s bodies. What could possibly go wrong? LOL

I’ll definitely be reading this story again.
