    Okay

    I have heard many different AFO-is-Izuku’s-father theories. That’s great, I love it.

    BUT!

    How come absolutely nobody talks about the similarities between these two!?

    It’s more obvious in pictures where you can see All Night’s original eyes but Aoyama and All Might do share a lot of similarities.

    - blonde hair

    - blue eyes

    - always smiling

    - similar facial shape and slightly spiky hairstyle

    - a strong connection to a foreign country (France for Aoyama, America for All Might) to the point of switching languages mid-sentence (more obvious in the Japanese version in All Might’s case)

    - both were originally born Quirkless and received a quirk from a well-known and powerful individual.

    - they both have a flashy, over the top hero persona to distract from their rather sad personal life.

    - they both have aesthetics you would expect a heroic person to have, with Aoyama as a knight and All Might as a typical Golden Age of Comics hero.

    I’m not going to go so far as to say “secret love child”, but what if the reason Aoyama was able to go undetected as the traitor for so long to both the fans and the other characters was because he subconsciously reminded us all of All Might?

    I'LL NEVER SMILE AGAIN (UNTIL I SMILE FOR YOU).

    pairing. aoyama yuuga x gn!reader.

    content. (!!!) major manga spoilers, angst, hurt/comfort, cursing, brief mild suicidal ideation.

    words. 2.6k

    You notice some time into your second semester of U.A. that Aoyama has a strange relationship with affection.

    If you had to liken it to something, it would be the constancy of the tide, reigned and abated by the cycle of the moon. In and out, two steps forward and ten steps back. He yearns for it - that it what you first figure out, the part that is most obvious to somebody looking closely at him - and yet, when he gets it, it's as though he freezes, and he backs away.

    Like he doesn't know what to do with love. Like he doesn't think he deserves it.

    The first time you notice this is shortly after the training camp attack, after you've all been hustled into your new dormitories. They're nice, but lonely, and you've been procrastinating unpacking because it's boring but now your room looks so unassuming and plain that it doesn't feel like a home at all. So you go for a walk. You find a heavy fire exit door, glimmering with sour green light, and out on the roof you find him.

    He sits on the edge. His shoulders shake. A moment later, you realise he is crying.

    You freeze; it's not as if you and Aoyama have ever been particularly close. Now that you think on it, you realise he's never seemed particularly close with anyone. It's that thought that stays your instinct to just quietly leave the way you came - the notion that if you don't step up here and offer a shoulder, probably nobody will.

    And so you let the door sigh shut behind you, and you call into the sunset, "Hey... Aoyama?"

    The soft sniffles gasp to a stop; Aoyama whips around, his violet eyes alight with unshed tears, cheeks blotchy red. "A-ah," he stammers, lifting a sleeve to scrub at his face. "I... wasn't expecting anybody else to be up here."

    "Sorry," you venture, not yet wanting to approach and scare him off. "Are you okay?"

    He gives you a wobbly smile, strained at the edges like it's about to unravel at the seams before your eyes. "Oh, it's just the blues." A quaint little term, one that stretches deeper than one might assume at first. The blues was the gateway to a flat, endless ocean, where the sea meets every horizon line and no matter how far down you swim there's no way out, no light at the end of the tunnel. "No need to worry yourself, mon chérie."

    Unconvinced, you shift your weight. "Are - are you sure? Are you... missing your family, or something?"

    This is apparently the wrong thing to say; fresh tears bloom anew in Aoyama's wide eyes, and he buries his face in his hands with a wracking sob. Your eyes widen, and you hurry over, mindless now of overstepping some invisible boundary. "I'm - I'm sorry! Aoyama, I'm sorry, I shouldn't have assumed..."

    Cautiously, you lay a hand on his shoulder. He tenses tangibly, and you're just about to retract the touch, cursing yourself, when he seems to... lean unconsciously into it. Like a cat accepting a new touch. And so that is how it starts; the first crest of the tide rushing in turning to foam as it crests on the shoreline. The first push Aoyama makes towards comfort, and the instinctive clinginess that comes after it.

    After the incident on the roof - wherein you stay with him, eventually moving from an awkward hand on the shoulder to your arm around him whilst he cried pitifully into your shoulder and refused to tell you exactly what was wrong - Aoyama begins to follow you everywhere like a lost puppy.

    He waits for you after class with a tentative smile, one that's different from his usual genial, sparkling beam. It's accompanied by a pleased flush, a nervous stutter of his eyes, a quite breaking relief when you accept his company happily.

    And it's strange - Aoyama is good company. You don't know how you didn't realise before, but he is. He's chatty and never lets a silence stagnate, always finding something new to direct your attention to. His compliments fall easily, and he sends you photos of pretty sunsets or particularly bright moons just because he thinks you'll enjoy them. But still, there's a wall. Secrecy, the kind that is always present but rarely urgent enough to be a trouble. But it's there, hiding behind his bright eyes, catching sadly in the lines of his face when he thinks you aren't looking.

    When Aoyama thinks he's alone, the sparkle slips from his face, and he is a boy borne of shadow and misery. He thinks you don't notice, but you only wish you don't.

    It comes to a crash one night, when rain lashes outside. It's two months after the training camp attack to the date, and Aoyama shows up at your door. He's soaked to the skin, pale beneath the flecks of rain that spatter him, and when you pull him inside and wrap a towel over his shoulders, he throws it to the floor in protest.

    "I'm bad," he says, is all he says even as you question and console and eventually shout out of frustration. "I'm bad, I'm bad, I don't deserve..."

    "Aoyama," you say desperately, grabbing his shoulders. He stares up at you, light hair dark with rainwater, eyes shadowed. Not a sparkle in sight. It makes your heart ache. "You're not bad. You couldn't possibly be bad."

    His lip trembles. "You don't know," he whimpers. "None of you know how bad I am. I'm the worst, the lowest of the low. I'm scum, and I c-can't even tell you why..."

    And no matter how hard you question him, he stays resolutely silent. Eventually, you drag him to bed. He insists on going back to his own room, but you refuse, pulling him beneath the covers with you. He's shivering for a long time after you turn out the lights, and when you steel your nerves and take his hand beneath the covers, he flinches.

    "You're not bad," you whisper into the blue-dark of your room. Rain beats a light tattoo into the window pane, matching the quick rhythm of your heart. "You're my best friend. You're more. If you're bad, I'm bad."

    There's a long silence. For a minute, you think he's not going to answer. And then he says, in the flattest tone of voice you've ever heard from him, "No, ma moitié," he murmurs, and the nickname makes your heart jump. "You're too good. For this place, and for me."

    The urge to kiss him rises like an urgent wave. You suppress it. He is gone by morning.

    You don't see him properly for a few months after that.

    It's so lonely; nearer the beginning of the year, you hung out with Sero and Mina and the others a lot, but you honestly drifted when you got attached to Aoyama. It stung, walking out of class to find an empty spot against the wall where he usually would've been waiting, his replies to your messages getting emptier and shorter.

    You must've done something wrong, you reasoned. Overstepped some boundary. You should've have made him get into bed with you, shouldn't have held his hand, should've have had this awful all-consuming feelings in the first place. Your life was a long list of shouldn't-haves that was only growing by the second.

    You corner him one afternoon, desperate and exhausted from running everything over in your mind for the thousandth time. "Did I do something wrong?" you mumble, failing to fight back a voice crack.

    Aoyama blinks; his eyes are cloudy and beneath them are tired circles the colour of bruises. "Not at all, my dear," he evades, sidestepping you neatly. "It's just - just life, you know?"

    "Just life?" you echo incredulously, hurrying to keep up. "You - you're avoiding me like the plague! What else could you possibly have going on that's keeping you so busy that you - slow down! Aoyama, please."

    The woundedness in your voice makes his brisk pace falter; he turns wide, sorrowful eyes to you. For a moment, he looks like the second most miserable person in the world (with the first-place holder being you, of course). He gnaws at his bottom lip anxiously. "I'm sorry, dear," he tells you gently. "It's just a little complicated right now. You should go back to your other friends for a little while, okay?"

    "I don't have any other friends!" you cry, feeling your heart crack in your chest. "I - I only have you."

    Aoyama blinks, stricken. "Th-that's not true," he mumbles. "Everyone should be tripping over themselves to be your friend. Any of them should be so lucky." And he smiles, and it is empty. "You had friends before me, no? And you'll have friends after, too."

    He leaves you, speechless and hurt, alone in the corridor. You blink back the tears that burn in your eyes and try not to wonder what you did so wrong.

    "I want to see him."

    Aizawa stills, but he doesn't look entirely surprised. He throws you a fleeting, bored look, but you know he's thinking on it. Behind you, Mina and Sero exchange uneasy looks.

    "I dunno," Aizawa answers slowly after a moment. "It was tough enough getting me an audience with him. Dunno if they'll readily accept me putting a kid in that chair."

    You bristle. "I'm not a kid. I can handle it." I can handle him, remains the unspoken implication of that sentence, but you let it hang in the air like an unpleasant aftertaste.

    "It's not a question of whether or not you can handle it," Aizawa shrugs. "It's a question of compromising Aoyama as a witness, or of exposing you to somebody known to be working for AFO."

    "He didn't want to!" you exclaim, frustration biting at you. "Couldn't you see his face? Please, he needs - he needs one friend right now. Just one. And I might be one of the only ones in the world that he has."

    "Kid," Aizawa sighs, and then stops himself. "I'll see what I can do. Do not get your hopes up. Might end up being a phone call at the very most, okay?"

    You nod eagerly. "Okay. Thank you. Thank you."

    Your teacher nods. "Yeah, well. It's good to say everything you gotta say to someone. You never know when - when you might not have the opportunity anymore." His fingers drum absently on the desk, his eyes far away. You get the sense he is talking about something else entirely, now.

    Two weeks later - after extensive debriefing and countless confidentiality agreements signed - you are marched into a room. It is plain white, and contains only a chair and a glass wall.

    On the other side of the glass wall is your best friend in the entire world.

    He is slumped and defeated, exhausted. His hair hangs, oily and flat over his face, casting his dull eyes into shadow, his mouth a thin line, his arms pinned to his sides. The plain, unadorned black clothes are fields away from his usual pastel ruffles.

    It aches to see him. It aches that he does not so much as look up as you enter.

    "Aoyama," you whisper. He flinches and turns his head away a little.

    "I... was hoping they wouldn't let you in here," he whispers, and your heart breaks. "I heard them talking about it days ago. But I hoped it wouldn't go through. I... you are the last person I want seeing me like this."

    "Don't be stupid," you mutter. "You think I'd let anyone tell me no?"

    That would have made him smile, once. Now he only slumps further in dejection. "Why... are you here?"

    You tap on the glass. "To see you."

    "No," Aoyama snaps, his voice hoarse; he raises his head for the first time. Frustrated tears glimmer in his eyes. "Why are you here? After - after everything I did - the way I treated you, m-my only true friend in the world. After I lied to you and betrayed you. After I put you all in danger. Why are you here?"

    You're quiet for a moment. Aoyama doesn't back down, staring you down with frantic urgency. After a good half-minute, you lean back in your chair, commiserating. "Do you remember that night, when... you came to my room, crying?"

    Aoyama shudders. "Of course. It was one of the worst nights of my whole life. The night I realised I couldn't be your friend anymore, not in good faith."

    You shake your head, lip wobbling. "You kept telling me you were bad. And of course, I - I didn't get it. I kept telling you, you're good, Aoyama. You're good. Do you remember that?"

    Tears spill over Aoyama's lashline, drip down to the vertices of his jaw. "Yes," he whispers. "Every word of it."

    "You must think I feel stupid for that now," you murmur. "You must think... now that I know the truth, I get it. That I understand why you're bad. But guess what, Aoyama? I still think you're good."

    His jaw drifts open. "That's - you..."

    "You're not a villain," you interrupt forcefully, and the emotion behind it makes tears burn in your own eyes. "Do you hear me? I won't accept it. I don't give a shit what you've done, it - you - Aoyama, you're my best friend. You're the only real friend I've ever had. I am not giving up on you this easily, got it?"

    "You don't know!" he cries, squeezing his eyes shut. He looks absolutely tormented. "The things I've done - the things I've had a hand in - it's so shameful. All I want is to just - just stop causing problems for everybody I love, to just crawl in a hole and die."

    "Well, I don't think you're hearing me," you shout. "I'm not fucking letting that happen. You're good, Aoyama, you're so good and I love you and I'm not letting you give up this easily!"

    Aoyama freezes; it takes you a good second too long to realise just what, exactly, you have said. Your eyes widen, and you clamp your mouth shut.

    "You - what—"

    "That night you came to my room," you bulldoze on, seized by a sudden, maddening streak of confidence. "I wanted to tell you. I wanted to kiss you. But I didn't and I can't do it now and I'm going to regret that until you're out of here. And when you are out of here I'll show you that you're - you're worthy of love, and you're worthy of forgiveness. So please, please, just try. For me?"

    Aoyama reels in a breath. Beneath the tears, some colour has returned to his face; bright red shades his cheekbones, and his gaze has turned unimaginably soft. "I can't promise you - that I'll ever see myself as being worthy of that. Of you. Any of you. I'm so sorry - that I dragged you into this."

    The tide goes out. The beach is lonely and cold.

    Disappointment breaks over you, but just as you're beginning to nod in reluctant acceptance and lean back on your chair before you make an ever bigger fool of yourself, Aoyama swallows and looks up tentatively.

    "But," he whispers. "For you. I suppose I can try."

    The tide rushes back in at full force; foam breaks over your fingertips. Saltwater streaks down your face, wets your lips when you smile, and Aoyama's face feels like the moon emerging from a dark cloud, soaking you in tentative light.

    Just realized that Aoyama’s bindings are around his middle because that’s where his quirk is

    So that makes me wonder about other bindings the police have

    Like, special handcuffs for quirks emitted from hands

    Would they have bindings for every limb? Like if a quirk involved the thigh, would that person have a binding around the thigh? One ear? The left side of the body as opposed to the right?

    Though I suppose there are “normal” ways of rendering a quirk useless, like when they cut off all of Nagant’s hair to prevent any clay bullets

    Would they have had a singular arm binding around her arm for the rifle?

    Many questions

    The thing I want the most from the MHA series, at this moment, is the liberation and happiness of the Aoyama family. You heard me - the entire family.

    I keep seeing posts and threads wishing for hell on earth for Aoyama’s parents, and while I understand where the frustration towards them come from - consider this: Do you actually think your boy Yūga would want to see his parents dead?(!)

    Consider this post a safe space for Aomaman and Aopapa.

    Chapter 340

    A very small amount of non-heroes have made the cut to be considered trustworthy

    They got little fridge magnet versions of the villains

    Yeah Shiggy's op

    Take out the League of Villains original Vanguard Squad then split the leader's two bodies

    Of course you'll proceed with caution. That's why he wasn't just immediately arrested and thrown in a cell

    A rather obvious question based on all of his behavior since this started

    I mean, he isn't the one who made this choice. His parents made it for him and then he really didn't have a choice

    We're back to early in the series when Aizawa was scary. It may be necessary, but that doesn't make it less scary.

    Trying to make Aoyama more afraid of living with the guilt than of All for One

    Shinsou's been training too, it might have helped to train with the hero classes instead of alone

    Also it's no longer "the story of how I/we became the greatest hero(es)"

    Now they're just becoming heroes, greatness TBD

    Not All Heroes Wear Capes (some hide behind masks) by Ade Crown

    Yuuga didn't want to be there. He didn't want to play hero when all he was just a scumbag villain. Alas, he didn't have a choice.

    Izuku was going to be a hero, this is what he told himself and everyone else around him. It was a hero's job to get rid of the villains, wasn't it?

    Yuuga and Izuku are similar, but both of them would deny it. After all, Yuuga was a born limelight hero with a love for drama and flares, while Izuku shied away from the attention. What happens, when all of that turns out to be a lie?

    On the Realities of BNHA’s Heroism, and Those Who Act Within It (A Look At Dadz- Aizawa)

    I, admittedly, am somewhat biased because I love Aizawa Shouta, and I don’t want people to read this without knowing it. However, I would like to think myself a realist, and I have thought upon and written his character for over a year and over a million words, so I would like to think that I can see both his shortcomings and his brilliance.

    He is a good teacher. A good man. Not always the kindest one, but a good one.

    BNHA MANGA SPOILERS  (Chapter 340 included) (oh, and a note that this is by no means looking for discourse or controversy, nor is it a complete consideration of his character and actions - it’s a ramble I wanted to share after having read the most recent chapter released online, and thus focuses on Aizawa in relation to the direct elements related to that)

    this chapter heavily featured Aizawa, and did so for the first time in a while - he’s been here, of course, and I’ve looked at every instance, but he was very prominent in this, and that gave me a lot to think about, and emphasised a lot of the thoughts I already had

    He is intense. Scary, even. He has always had this start, right from his intro, and it makes sense.

    See, this scene, to me, epitomises a lot of what too many people don't seem to understand about Aizawa, the Heroics Industry, and BNHA as a whole - he is an underground hero, and a man who has to teach children to be heroes, a glorified industry wherein many enter with stars in their eyes, expecting glory and money and adrenaline, to save people, but not truly understanding how they will have blood on their hands for the rest of their lives

    Aizawa sees the worst of their society. A society that is very, very different to our own, not only because it's Japan rather than the Western world (speaking as someone who mostly interacts with those from the US and UK within this fandom’s sphere), but also because, as canonically-stated, the world changed a lot with the evolution of Quirks. Their standards for what is acceptable, what is dangerous or unusual, is incredibly different to ours. This fact, alone, explains a lot about many characters’ actions and attitudes, but I won’t go into that right now.

    Aizawa - Eraserhead - knows he's sending these kids onto battlefields. He knows he's sending them to kill, to be killed, to lose the ones they love and even those they hate. To fail.

    So yes, he can be harsh. He does it because he wants these kids to survive. He is intense, even scary, because he spends his nights dealing with the worst of society, and his days teaching people less than half his age, minors, how to do that themselves in the future. Of course, BNHA society is somewhat desensitised to this concept in a way that most of us, as consumers, aren’t, but there is undeniably still a massive weight upon him in this context.

    Aizawa has nearly died for his class several times. He has nearly expelled them, at times, because they put themselves to what (in his knowledge) was completely unnecessary risk, and, though I won’t pretend to love that on a personal level, I do consider it fair. (Yes, I include Izuku’s QA Test in that - he was unaware, and ignorance does not excuse cruelty but I, personally, did not find him cruel - again, consider the different society that BNHA have to ourselves.)

    He will go, no pun intended, above and beyond for his students, and I thoroughly believe that goes beyond the fact that he is employed to do so. There is a ferocity to the way he addresses their safety, a surety in his belief in them, and, in recent arcs but also as far back as the Final Exams, for example, a faith in their skills and heroism. He has taught them well, and he trusts that they are brilliant all in their own right. He does not discriminate, does not judge, only pushes and guides and nudges them to where they need to be to survive.

    With this recent arc, no matter how much I dislike a very large proportion of it, between the senseless deaths and the traitor arc and more minor things that I generally don’t like (there are parts I do love, don’t get me wrong, and that is only my personal opinion regardless), you cannot deny that Aizawa wants the best for his students, Aoyama included. And Aoyama needs a push in the right direction. He needs help, needs someone to believe in him, needs to know that people are there for him. And I would find it hard to believe anyone could read the scenes in this chapter in any other way than Aizawa telling Aoyama to trust them all, to work alongside them.

    So, yes, I genuinely believe him to be a good teacher.

    Anyways!! Here are some of the softer Dadzawa moments from this chapter that I loved very much, if you got to the end of this  ^^;

    and then this last one, guys, with that soft not-scowl (and whoops, my writer head came out when I wrote that, didn’t it?)

    Bnha spoilers!!

    .

    .

    .

    I don’t hate Aoyama nor the fact he is the traitor

    But… I wish it was just someone who had a little more emotional bond to and throughout the class? Nobody was that close to Aoyama enough in the first place hence the reveal just having the entire class feeling betrayed as a whole

    At least I wish Aoyama had had his own group of friends he felt especially tight-knitted to so when his identity was revealed there would be a mix of reactions based on how close they had been with him

    If it had been another classmate for example,

    Kaminari is a character whose interactions with the rest of the class has been shown exclusively throughout the story.

    If he had been the traitor then there would be different levels of betrayal felt according to their friendship such as the Bakusquad or Jirou

    Bakugou: Kaminari (imo) is one of the rare cases where Bakugou has actually opened up to. As of now with Aoyama as the traitor, he isn’t showing much emotion, but if it had been Kaminari who hung out with him a lot he would’ve shown a side of him that hasn’t been shown before as he hasn’t been directly betrayed by a close friend before. Especially with [Midoriya-Shigaraki] [Iida-Stain] [Todoroki-Dabi] [Uraraka-Toga] conflict-based potential battles, Bakugou doesn’t have a match for him readers can look forward to compared to the others who have connections to individuals in LOV. If Kaminari was the traitor, he could fill in that spot, and that could lead to a match with wild explosions and electricity with Bakugou having to fight someone he had actually trusted, meaning a fight with both action worth looking forward to and overflowing emotions.

    Sero: I think Sero would be one of the most shocked. Sero is always so collected and calm that I would have really liked to see what he would have been like if he was in shock.We would also get to see serious Sero compared to his usual easygoing mood.

    Kirishima: Kirishima would be devastated. He was like Kaminari’s brother from another mother. He’d probably not be able to get over the initial shock and be trying to have some space to himself that would worry the class to bits

    Mina: I would really love to see Mina have more screentime regarding pivotal plotlines. But it was already shown that she broke down after seeing Aoyama as the traitor, so for Mina I wish that Horikoshi had just shown us more of her than just one panel :(

    Last but not least, Jirou: Jirou is encouraged by Kaminari and Jirou strengthens Kaminari. They depend on each other and make each other laugh. But was that all just an act? Because they had a lot of screentime together, it could build up to a high range of emotional outbreak

    And above all, we could have seen Kaminari’s closest friends and the rest of the class who also love Kaminari get it together and steel themselves to rescue Kaminari from the villains, plus Kaminari would get an interesting backstory and more screentime and we would get more sides of him if he had been acting to hide his secret

    Tl;dr: Aoyama lacks the bond and chemistry with his classmates that lead to an mediocre traitor reveal

    (+just me ranting cuz ive been waiting my whole life for traitor kaminari \(iДi)

    I am not seeing this anywhere so

    Can we once again, talk about how Aizawa is more of a parent to quite some kids in 1A than their actual birth parents?

    #they're his kids your honour #its dadzawa #and he's awesome #god i love him #bnha spoilers#bnha#aizawa shouta#yuuga aoyama#dadzawa#bnha 340
