Oh boy! Time to pull out the list of reasons!
I have a lot of issues with self worth and self care, being quirkless would mean he views me as clean, pure, trustworthy, perfect and something to protect. He always makes sure im comfortable and safe, he is often busy so when he makes time for me it feels extra special. Ive found myself doing more self care because of him, because even if hes not here, I feel gross if im not clean and healthy for him. He may be strict, cold and have a lot of temper issues, but when hes with me, I calm him down. We also both have mysophobia so certain ‘weird’ things I do are normal to him. Knowing he feels safe with me brings me great comfort, him not being used to hugs, kisses, cuddles and holding hands makes seeing his reactions so much more worth it too.
Fandom: Boku no Hero Academia
Character: Bakugou Katsuki / Reader
Summary: You weren’t sure what it was anymore. As you looked in the mirror, you questioned what you could possibly do to fix things. You weren’t even sure what you’d done wrong. You’d given him everything: love, time, space, affection, understanding–what had happened to make him want this? To…to not want you?
Yep, finally happened. I decided to try my hand at Bakugou. He’s admittedly a difficult character for me to write. So that’s precisely why I’ve decided to challenge myself! Hope you guys enjoy and much love! (gif not mine)
Dating Katsuki Bakugou was not easy. You were warned of this, of course, by the wonderful extrovert who adopted you: Mina Ashido. You were warned of this by your other friends: Denki, Hanta, and Eijirou. You were given sympathetic stares by Ochaco Uraraka and Tsuyu Asui whenever you longingly stared at the angry ash blonde every morning. Of all the people in the world, you guessed they wondered, why him?
To you, it wasn’t rocket science: Katsuki was a driven, determined, and hard-working young man. Beneath his sour exterior, there seemed to be so much more underneath. And you had the privilege of getting to know that when one day, after a particularly harsh study session (Eijirou insisted you guys needed help–and Katsuki was a tough teacher), Katsuki asked–actually, almost insisted–that you were both meeting on Saturday for a lunch date.
“Are…should we invite everyone else?”
“…the hell are we doing that for? ‘s just you and me. And don’t you dare be late.”
And it was the happiest few months of your life, albeit hectic–villains constantly springing up here and there, Katsuki being generally unsavory to pretty much anyone–poor Midoriya in particular (to this day, you didn’t quite understand why he mistreated that poor boy so much). Nothing could possibly rob you of those moments of happiness–the harsh training sessions with him would lead to shockingly soft moments where he held you in his arms. The best part? He didn’t have to say a word. You knew, you just knew he felt the same way.
And then one day, he didn’t.
You had been virtually inconsolable when they told you he had been kidnapped by the League of Villains. You had sported a few injuries of your own as you fought off villains alongside Yaomomo and Yosetsu from class 1-B. However, it all meant nothing when you heard about Katsuki.
You had wanted to go with Midoriya and everyone else to go save him, but your injuries were still bad. Eijirou had reminded you of it while promising to bring him home.
“Listen, Y/N, you gotta take it easy. You took a beating against the Noumu…look, you rest easy, and I’ll bring Bakugou back, okay?”
And he did. You were so relieved and overjoyed and happy that when you did manage to get out of the hospital, the first person you wanted to see was your explosive boyfriend. Was he okay? You just needed to see him. When you visited his home, his parents greeted you warmly. When you went up to his room, however, the door was slightly ajar and the lights were off and you could spot Katsuki at his desk.
You had knocked (he was never fond of anyone just waltzing on in uninvited), and when he turned, his expression was uncharacteristically grim. His eyes lit up, very briefly in surprise at the sight of you, but you were done dancing around.
You had thrown yourself into his arms, fully expecting him to respond as usual: hold you tightly, not say much of anything other than, “Oi…almost knocked me over, doofus,” and maybe him gently rubbing your back.
But this was Katsuki Bakugou.
He violently pushed you away, sending you plopping down on his bed. “Back off, will ya?” He snapped coldly, “I’m trying to pack up for the dorms!”
At first, you were hurt. Immensely so. You cried when you left, sobbed like a baby on the entire ride back home. However, by the time you had finished packing for the big move to the dorms, you realized he had just been kidnapped–of course he was out of sorts! You cursed yourself for being so insensitive and oblivious to his needs. You deduced that perhaps he needed some space. Yes, that was all it was. You wouldn’t indulge the nagging voice in the back of your head whispering that he had fallen out of love with you and that he no longer needed you.
Then that horrible day finally came.
Katsuki had taken you aside after school one day to end things. When he said he needed to talk, you had assumed it was for training or something like that. When he said he didn’t want to date you anymore, that he didn’t love you anymore, it had shattered you.
“What do you mean…?” You had whispered, but you were cut off.
“Don’t go giving me those teary eyes and desperate pleading. It’s over. We’re done.” He bit out.
And as you glared at him, tears streaming down your face, you realized everyone was right about him. What did you see in him? You didn’t even know anymore. You wiped your eyes, only for fresh ones to replace them as you retorted in a stupidly wobbly voice,
“F–fine! I’m relieved! I’m glad I don’t get to be with such an asshole like you!”
You had stomped off childishly, and the moment you turned the corner you’d lost your bravado, sliding down the wall onto the floor sobbing. Poor Mina had found you, cried with you and offered ice cream and a sleepover as condolence. Late at night, when Mina finally fell asleep, you’d chanced washing your face in the bathroom.
When you turned on the light and looked at yourself, you couldn’t even recognize your own face. Your eyes were so red and puffy from hours of crying. Your cheeks were red and splotchy and your lips were dry and cracked. As you turned on the faucet, your thoughts turned back to those horrible moments Bakugou said he didn’t love you.
You weren’t sure what it was anymore. As you looked in the mirror, you questioned what you could possibly do to fix things. You weren’t even sure what you’d done wrong. You’d given him everything: love, time, space, affection, understanding–what had happened to make him want this? To…to not want you?
Me when I first saw shigaraki and his neck scratching problem:what a dummy, I hope he knows that even without his quirk that’s really bad for him
Also me, working on becoming self aware noticing I’m itching my neck so much I bleed:oh no… I’m the dummy, I’ve been the dummy all along, haven’t I?

doodles of teen eri that i did while binging boku dake ga inai machi
translation of first pic: mmm? what’s that?
ok so bad news… i just binge watched the entire series of bnha up to mid season 4 for the first time and I’m CRYING! i already NEED fanfictions NOW. help me…
I guess a lot of people are seeing Dabi’s reaction to Twice’s death(?) as him not really caring, because of the kinda manic expression on his face. I just wanted to say that everyone has their own way of responding to trauma/loss/grief, and Dabi’s way isn’t bad or “incorrect”
There are a lot of reasons someone’s emotional reactions to trauma/loss/grief might seem “inappropriate”, including a history of trauma and certain mental illnesses. Dabi said himself that he’s physically unable to cry due to his burns, and that would take a serious toll on a person’s emotional health (especially if it happened at a young age)
Also, Dabi might just be putting on a front while Hawks is there. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if he’s dissociating to some degree, and Twice’s death(?) won’t really hit him until later. Dabi can’t afford to break down right now, not in front of an enemy
Tldr don’t assume Dabi is cruel or uncaring just because his emotional response is atypical
I see My Hero Academia fans complain about putting teens in the path of villains, and, honestly, having grown up on Robin, Speedy, and entire teams of independent teen heroes being put right in danger’s way, I honestly feel the series has handled the idea of them still being students well while also bowing to the need for them to, well, be our main characters and invloved.
Spoilers up to manga issue 266:
Seeing Fatgum Taxi out the students in his protective fat was adorable of course but it also emphasized how the pros wanted to keep them in a limited role. It was pretty clear that Mudman and Shroom had very specific area attacks to perform, Chargebolt countered his own specific villain he was perfectly designed to, and Tokoyami, while more in the thick of it than the others, used his ranged attacks with Dark Shadow and quickly went back into Fatgum’s belly fat.
Of course, then he saw Hawks in danger. You know Fatgum is calling out to tell him and is going to berate him to no end after this.
A/N: this is like almost two months late because i truly suck but this is my piece of the trade fic for @burnedbyshoto !!
CHARACTER PAIRING: Todoroki Shouto x F!Reader
WORD COUNT: 1,711
WARNINGS: angst, shower sex, overwhelming emotions, mention of blood
SYNOPSIS: one simple sentence can change everything in the relationship. after days of not talking, can you two reconcile?
“i don’t know what you expect me to do. quit my job, my life as a pro-hero? nothing is more important than that, not even you.”
you didn’t know why those few words hit you so hard, but they did. you knew Shouto was dedicated to his work, dedicated to saving people, to being everything his father wasn’t and more, but it still stung, dug a hole deep into your chest and squeezed your heart until there was only pulp and mush left.
the conversation started out as something simple. you two worked well together, like an oiled machine. this meant any issue, big or small, was usually resolved with a conversation. things got messy sometimes, like it did in any relationship, as Shouto was sometimes quick to judge and you often were clingy, but it was never enough to cause a real problem. today, however, turned into an absolute nightmare.
you had casually brought up date night, something which hadn’t been done in awhile due to busy and conflicting schedules, when things got heated. he didn’t understand why you were so concerned about going to see a movie, going to get dinner, to an amusement park, for a walk in the woods, or whatever other ridiculous idea that was thrown out of your mouth. tensions were high at work, villains were getting cocky and people’s lives were at risk. taking time off was something that just couldn’t be done at the moment.
it could be he’s just pushing his visor back up - possibly before he decides to jump into the fray.
i love how its just considered a villain style stare…honestly reminds me of Gladion from Pokemon ngl
whatever it is…………he looks pretty regardless………pretty bird man
I predicted that Tokoyami was going to save Hawks weeks ago. I feel a little elated that it came true, but I’m also going on a new prediction for the next few chapters:
Tokoyami saves Hawks and Hawks lives
They end up escaping from the PLF mansion because Dabi wakes up Gigantomachia
Gigantomachia ends up wiping out a number of heroes in the process and they are forced to retreat
Endeavor and Crust end up getting Mirko out of the lab due to her injuries
Shigaraki awakes early, much to Dr. Ujiko’s distress and winds up going toe to toe with Endeavor
The Noumu in the hospital are defeated but the hospital gets destroyed
However all of the Pro-Heroes left in the hospital are saved by Ryukyu (she was with the hospital raid team if I remember)
Endeavor ends up fighting Shigaraki who kills him… In front of Shouto
The hospital raid team can only look on in horror as Shigaraki destroys the entire hospital
There might be a scene were Shigaraki confronts Deku but somehow is not able to fight him or cannot kill him with his Decay
I’m either on the level that Shigaraki gets caught and taken into custody or he escapes but I’m going to go with arrested since he would be able to initiate the prison break
Later on, with the heroes at another hospital, Hawks and Mirko are being cared for when Hawks finds out that Endeavor has been killed
This devastates Hawks, as he feels he was responsible for Endeavor’s death
Later on, Hawks meets a recovering Aizawa (because of course Aizawa would be injured in the process) and they end up discussing Noumu, the LoV and Shigaraki. Hawks ends up finding a confidant in Aizawa and this will play into future arcs
Meanwhile, the LoV winds up getting back together again, though with few of the PLF members. ReDestro is not among them as he has been arrested, a point that many of the PLF are going to reiterate
With Shigaraki imprisoned, Dabi becomes the defacto leader of the LoV and decides that they will need to break into the prison of Tartarus and get their leader and everyone else out of there, including Stain, AFO and ReDestro
And that’s all I have for now, but that’s kind of how I feel the story is going to progress before the second school year commences.
Dabi T-posing…idk why but thats just so funny to think about
the next ep def has a lot going on and i cant wait to see it…makes me feel glad that i watch it early via a stream snfjsks
as for Touya its very likely they’re gonna stick with red-haired Touya like past flashbacks,, its better it stays consistent with the anime as opposed to the manga now?? but they might end up changing it to white, who knows
I want to hug rei todoroki is that too much to ask🥺
KAMINARI DENKI COULD LITERALLY GET IT STOP SLEEPING ON HIM AH
