Plot twist! Yuu being the one who noticed he has feelings for Mika, but Mika didn't since we was too busy to notice (My poor baby has gone through a lot of suffering + Constantly having to save someone's ass). Idk I just liked the idea since almost all of the fics I've read show only Mika being in love and Yuu don't noticing it, and I think that change would be adorable.
People in this fandom sleep on self-aware pining!Yuu and I’m here to solve that.
>Yuu fell in love with Mika and realized this when they were kids because Mika was the first one to need and love him so he couldn’t help it. When he realized his feelings, he tried to avoid Mika as much as possible but, as we all know, Mika was always all over Yuu, which made Yuu’s heart beat like mad, only making his feelings for him grow. He was so helplessly in love and could do nothing when he was tackled in hugs by his crush. Mika, on the other hand, thought Yuu’s face was red simply because he was easily flustered and never realized it was because he liked him.
>I don’t want to bring in the angst but imagine Yuu’s teenager years, seeing all the people dating the love of their lives and thinking that his soulmate is long dead, that he will never find another person like him, regretting never telling Mika his feelings.
>Going back to the fluff, imagine the happiness Yuu felt when he got his beloved back in his arms, realizing that he has another chance to tell him how he feels and maybe even have a life by his side.
>Yuu being affectionate as he is because he’s actually trying to give Mika hints but failing miserably.
Also, a very cute but confused Mika
Mika: Yuu-chan has changed so much. He’s so affectionate now. Is this a human thing? Shinoa: No, he’s not like that with us. Only with you *winks* Mika: then… is he like that with me because… he’s taking revenge for the way I was when we were kids? Shinoa: *facepalms*
>Yuu’s smooth lines are actually said on purpose but they always go over Mika’s head.
Mika: you should stop getting distracted during training
Yuu: I’m sorry, but you’re very distracting, it’s hard not to look at you.
Yuu: Mika, wait! Your eyes are beautiful!! I swear! Come back!
>Their biting sessions get a whole different meaning because Yuu gets to hold Mika close and he feels good but he’s also suffering because he has his crush right where he wants him but he can’t bring himself to confess so he’s just there like trying to enjoy himself while dying inside. He doesn’t want to take advantage of the situation either!
>Yuu always trying to make Mika smile. In the rare occasions when it happens he literally melts.
>I know I’ve said it before but… the touches!! Mika being clueless about Yuu’s constant touches!! I’ll never get enough of this. He touches his hands, caresses his hair, hugs him all the time, holds his cheeks, and Mika’s just there like “I guess Yuu-chan really became an affectionate person, huh”. Yuu doesn’t know what to do anymore.
>Asuramaru is always yelling “TELL HIM, YOU FUCK” inside his head
>Yuu doesn’t tell Mika because Mika already has too many things on his hands as it is and is always looking after him so he is under the impression Mika would return his feelings out of pure pity if he tells him. He wants to make sure Mika actually loves him before telling him how he feels.
>Shinoa is Yuu’s self-proclaimed wingman. She gives Mika hints all the time and teases Yuu mercilessly.
Shinoa: hey Mika-san, do you know what Yuu’s type is?
Mika: why are you asking me this?
Shinoa: oh, you know, in case you need the information~
Shinoa: anyway, he really likes blondies
Mika: I thought you were already dating Mitsuba
Shinoa: yeah, but that’s not the type of blondie Yuu-san likes. He’s more into… another team~
Mika: so he likes someone from a different squad?
Shinoa: you could say they’re from a different… species~
Mika: … I don’t think Yuu-chan would appreciate you telling me he’s zoophilic
Shinoa: Oh, come on! I’m talking about you!
Mika: *frowns* I am definitely not zoophilic
>Narumi giving Yuu advice just so that he doesn’t have to see his pitiful attempts at courting Mika.
Said advice is terrible though. Mika is even more confused than before.
Yuu: hey Mika, your clothes look great!
Mika: uuh thank you, Yuu-chan. Ferid picked them for us so I don’t know how to feel about them
Yuu: w-well, they make your body look v-very nice!
Mika: thanks, I guess? It’s kind of big though so…
Yuu: y-yeah, but the boots are tight!
Mika: so you were talking about my boots?
Yuu: no! I mean- they shape your legs well- I-I mean- BYE *leaves
Yuu: it didn’t work!
Narumi: that’s weird. Complimenting girls about their outfits always did the trick for me… maybe we should have gone for the eyes.
Yuu: already tried. Not gonna do that again.
>Each of his squad members give him different advice but none of them work. Mitsuba tells him to compliment his battle skills. Yoichi tells him he should give him gifts.
Kimizuki seems to be the only one with a little sense of reality because he tells him to support Mika and give him his space when he needs it, which is what Yuu already does.
