Old headcanon of mine that I found again reading through old RP’s. I heard somewhere that one of the first sounds babies make is “da da da” which is why they’re more likely to say “Dada” first instead of “Mama”. Well, my brain got to thinking: what if instead of “Dada”, Hiro’s first word was “Dashi?” :D
(they totally got busted later for not doing what they were supposed to; Todoroki was embarrassed, Midoriya was beyond embarrassed, Iida was ashamed, and Uraraka was… well, she was unabashed at the most)
