A/N: I’ve never written for any of the girls before, so I wanted to switch things up for this Collab with @todorkihoe. Ochako is the first girl I’ve ever written for, and the first fic to start off my part of the winter collab. I hope you all enjoy!
“It’s snowing!” was the first thing you heard when you woke up this morning.
Normally you’d ignore the morning chatter and try to get you at least another hour or two of sleep in, especially since it was the weekend and Aizawa didn’t assign any training exercises to do. However, that plan went out the window when you heard a knock at your door. Already having an idea of who it was, you groaned as you peeled the blankets off of your body and made your way to the door.
Standing there was Uraraka and Midoriya, with big wide smiles on their faces that pleaded you not to slam the door in their face. You humored them, knowing that if you didn’t another pair would come and interrupt your sleep again.
“It’s snowing, (Y/N)!” Uraraka chirped, her smile never faltering.
“Yes, I’m aware. I heard someone scream it earlier,” You replied, voice raspy and groggy from having just woken up.
“The class is going outside to play in the snow. We thought maybe you’d like to come?” Midoriya asked carefully - the boy had always been intimidated by you for some reason. You were kind of taken into the Deku Squad a few weeks after being at UA, more so because of your close bond with Uraraka you developed within your short time there. The two of you shared many similarities; your family financial situation and your purpose of pursuing the hero path were the main ones. Given that you’ve become soft for the girl, you found it hard to reject their offer.
“We can make snow angels and snowmen, and have a snowball fight too! Come on, please, (Y/N)?” Uraraka begged, his big eyes and round cheeks sealing the deal.
“I hate it when you do that, knowing damn well I can’t say no to you,” You grumbled, rubbing the sleep from your eyes. “Give me like an hour.”
Uraraka and Midoriya congratulated their own victory before rushing off to join the rest of Class 1A getting ready to go outside. You groaned once more, closing your door to get ready.
An hour later and you were involved in a pretty intense snowball fight between the Bakusquad and the Dekusquad. Bakugo himself had been dragged into the game last minute, but seemed to willingly take charge as captain of his team anyway if it meant they would win. If he could throw a snowball without it melting in his hand first, he’d actually be able to get in a few hits.
Shots were thrown at each side, and the other classmates took bets on who would win. It was a hard tie, considering the pros and cons of each side - explosiveness for Bakugo and over analyzation for Deku, but also determination and planning went into each side respectively.
In the end it was a draw, having both of your last remaining members be hit at the same time, unable to determine who was hit first. Bakugo of course called bullshit, and retreated back into the dorms upon hearing the results of the game.
You had gone over to help Uraraka, who had been hit pretty hard with a snowball delivered by Mina in the last second of the game. Her face was covered in bits of snow, some chunks clinging to her hair that was left out from her hat. “You okay, ‘chako?”
Uraraka nodded, brushing off the snowflakes from her face and hair. Her face was pink, nose a burning red from the impact of the snowball. “It was a great game! Even if that last hit was a bit harsh.”
Albeit, Uraraka did look cute with her puffed cheeks painted pink and her nose resembling that of Rudolphs.
In fact, she looked way cuter than you had ever noticed. The way her hair framed her face perfectly even after being disheveled, the way her cheeks were the perfect tool for pouting. The way her eyes sparkled from the enjoyment of being with her friends and playing in the snow. Your stomach started churn, the feeling was unfamiliar to you. Such a small realization had hit you like a sack of bricks. But what did it mean?
“-hey, (Y/N), did you hear me?” Uraraka voiced, bringing you from your thoughts. You felt heat creep up your neck, embarrassed that you had spaced off in front of her.
“Um, sorry, what was that?” You replied.
“You spaced out for a bit, I was asking if you were okay?”
You nodded, standing up from your crouching position. With the embarrassment settling in, you needed some sort of escape from the situation in front of you.
“Hey, I’m gonna go put on some hot chocolate for when everyone comes back inside,” You tell her in a quick attempt to leave for the dorms. Uraraka didn’t have a chance to respond before you started walking away, leaving her confused.
You stripped from your winter clothing once you were inside, placing your coat on the back of a dining chair before making your way to the kitchn. Your heart was thumping harshly in your chest, and your mind was racing.
You tried to deny what your body was telling you was obvious - that you may have feelings for one of your friends.
The friend that just so happened to have feelings for another boy in class.
The realization hit you once again, this time in the pit of your stomach, making it ache to the point it hurt.
A day that was supposed to be fun suddenly turned sour.
I hope I did some justice for all you ochako fans out there! She truly is a best girl!!!
