i know u like kiribaku (duh) but i was wondering if you liked any other pairings? i’m just curious
I got this question earlier (I saw it pop up in my notifications) but it doesn’t show up for some reason when I check my inbox? But I figured I would answer it anyway in case anyone else was curious!
Yes, KiriBaku is my favorite ship (obviously from my blog haha), because not only are they my otp - but they’re also my BROTP! 😊 I think they have such a great dynamic between them both canonically in the show and fictionally in fanfiction and SMASH and other things; where they grow gradually to become good friends who see each other as equals and I think Kirishima is really good for Bakugou’s peopleing skills (or lack thereof) and Bakugou is exactly what Kirishima needs to raise his self-confidence (we love a healthy bond that raises up both individuals to be better!) I like them so much, to the point where even if Horikoshi decides they won’t be together, I would still be a fan of them because their chemistry is so entertaining and fun to see! 😁
Aside from that though, I do like other pairings as well! (And when I say “pairings” I mean either relationship or friendship wise, because I really think Horikoshi did such a good job creating these characters that I just like the way certain personalities/tropes align with one another, romantically or not).
I think Bakugou x Todoroki are a great pairing, mostly because of their clashing personalities - Todoroki is so level-headed, calm, and rational, and Bakugou is the exact opposite, quick to anger, passionate, vocal. I think, given the right circumstances, and probably from their shared time in the remedial arc, that there is a lot of potential between them for witty banter, raw emotion, and I also really crack up at the idea of these two idiots who don’t know how to properly human trying to navigate feelings together, like showing each other texts from their phone and constantly asking the other, “wtf does this mean?” 😄 I think there’s a lot of really great potential there and I’d love to see them interact more - in canon or in fanfiction!
I also have grown quite fond of Todoroki x Midoriya! While I’m not a huge fan of Midoriya (not because of anything bad, I think he’s such a sweet little cinnamon roll), I still really enjoy his interactions with Todoroki. I think Midoriya’s boyish charm and innocence off-centers Todoroki’s brooding side, and if anyone is to help Todoroki get over his issues and loosen up a little, I think Midoriya is the guy for the job! Just thinking of Todoroki trying (and failing) to be flirty and get Midoriya’s attention, and Midoriya being all fumbly and awkward, ugh, it tugs at my heart strings!
Kaminari x Jirou! This is more of a background ship for me, but c'mon! The electric guy and the girl who has inputs on her EARS?? He’s so dorky and she’s so cool?? He shamelessly flirts and she just wants to punch him in the stomach?? (lol) I just feel like they’re very similar to Bakugou x Kirishima, and that’s probably why I like them!
Kaminari x Shinsou! Another new otp that I am learning more and more about - so not much to say on them yet! I literally just stumbled across them, like, two days ago? Ahaha!
Leaning more towards brotps than otps now, I really really enjoy the friendship dynamics between Kirishima x Mina, Bakugou x Mina, pretty much all the dynamics in the Bakusquad! I like friendships where they have a lot of vine, collective-dumbass, energy, because I think it’s always really funny and I also like the idea of my favorites hanging out with people who genuinely make them laugh out loud crying at 2am over something totally ridiculous, or them attempting to do something stupid and just breaking shit - yaknow, chaotic and what not haha.
I hope this helps some people get to know me better! 😊 What are your favorite ships?? I love hearing what other people like and why they like it - I don’t really understand ship-shaming, so don’t be afraid to talk to me about other ships (otp or brotp) that aren’t KiriBaku or stuff that I’ve posted on my blog, as long as it’s respectful! 😁
