so hey do you think that after the kids were kicked out of the infirmary, they were like “??? who was that guy with Izuku?? Why was he allowed to stay???”
“Maybe it was his dad???”
“That makes sense… he doesn’t look like any of the teachers, so…”
and so it just becomes a generally accepted idea that this weird skinny half-dead guy is Izuku’s dad. the kids occasionally see them both walking around with each other too, which just becomes further proof that yes, this weird guy is Izuku’s dad. no one asks Izuku about it tho, it’s his business.
eventually, most of the school catches onto the rumors and agrees that yes, this man has to be Izuku’s dad. (the teachers who overhear keep it to themselves, silently laughing at the way things have turned out. they all decide to not tell All Might, but their random giggling whenever he and Izuku are around does make All Might rather weary and confused)
THIS SHIT HAPPENS, AND EVERYONE AT U.A. IS LIKE “HOLY SHIT ALL MIGHT IS THAT WEIRD SKELETON GUY HOLY SHIT ALL MIGHT IS IZUKU’S DAD”
if things weren’t so dire, Shouto would probably be doing a dance b/c he totally called that shit
