Uraraka would be the second after Kirishima to ask Bakugou for help on school assignments. Their classmates aren’t afraid of him, but if they can avoid some of his temper tantrums, they’ll do it.
Uraraka takes it in stride when she approaches him with all the major concepts highlighted. Underlined are aspects she’s having trouble understanding.
Bakugou’s first reaction is complete flustered rage. She’s holding her notebook and textbook wearing that determined expression on her face, and it’s so damn earnest that he can feel his palms start to sweat. It’s not good when his palms sweat.
“What the fuck are you talking about?”
“Uh! It’s the law course.” I can’t imagine a heroics school not having a law department and law centered classes, “A recent law was passed, and I’m not 100% on it.”
His face turns red. His hands are sweaty. He stuffs them in his pockets and takes them out, snatching the textbook from her, “No shit, you’ve got a shit edition.”
It’s a blink and you miss it moment, and Uraraka’s face flushes in embarrassment. She tries to pull the book away from him, and he’s SHIT FUCK WHY THE SHIT DID I FUCKING DO IT! IDIOT!
“Got the new edition in my room.”
She stares blankly.
“Why the fuck are you standing there?” He scoffs, “If you don’t want my help, carry your ass somewhere else.”
“Oh really! Thanks!”
AND…it ends up as an impromptu study session where Bakugou explains the concepts in a strangely clear light despite his aggressiveness and flustered state. He stumbles through several terms, and she recites her understanding from the notes.
It’s a productive session, and he forgets Kirishima’s sparring match. But Kirishima forgives him when he finds out what he was doing; he manages to get it out of him fifteen seconds after talking to him the next day.
“Hey man, what’s up, you missed out on the match yesterday.”
“I WASN’T FUCKING HELPING THAT DOPE WITH HER HOMEWORK.”
Kirishima doesn’t tease. He’s a cool bro.
