BNHA Headcanons

Just some head canons I have


- Don’t challenge him to any video game. He will. Destroy. You. Does not matter if you’re his best friend. You’re going down, and he’ll smile the entire time.

- Animals?? Love him?? Koda low-key gets excited.

- Pretty good artist. He doesn’t do it a lot, but it’s one thing him and Bakouga have in common. Not that either know. (Thats a lie. Katsuki has seen him draw, but doesn’t comment. He’s a little impressed tbh.)

- As they get older, and he gets more stable with his quirk he just. Picks people up. Randomly. Todoroki in his way? Dat boi in the air and set down before he can blink. Iida ranting too early in the morning? Tossed over the shoulder and thrown on the couch with a very drawn out “shhhhhh”. Shoji cries the first time Izuku does it to him cuz he thought nobody could pick him up anymore. Piggy back rides are a regular thing by third year. Even Momo gets in on it. (They’re all low-key attracted by it, but no one saying shit.)


- Good artist. doodles mostly and doesn’t talk about it. 

- very big dog person. Cats are okay- he’d own one, yeah, but dogs are where its at. When he gets one later in life, people are shook by how well trained and affectionate the pupper is. 

- Tone deaf. No one takes him to karaoke after the incident.

- He likes?? Kids?? No one was expecting this when they went on a field trip to the elementary school. Kirishima kinda thinks its cuz he regrets what he did to Izuku, and is sorta trying to make up for it. 

- When no one is around, he listens to really soft music.


- By third year he is known as The Prankster. He’s gotten too comfortable. Everyone fears the 1st of April. Even Bakouga locks himself in his dorm. (The only ones safe are Izuku and Momo- but they help him in secret.)

- The sass master by second year. “Did you run all the way here?” “No, just briskly walking throws me into cardiac arrest.”

- Really likes small animals. Hamsters? Heck ye. Chinchilla? STOP HIS HEART WILL BURST. (But hes also scared he’ll accidentally hurt them. Sweet boi.)

- Ride or die friend. Will drive at two in the morning to wherever they hell u managed to land yourself at. Probably would help you hide a body too.

- This boy can’t figure out video games to save his life. Prefers chess and crosswords. (But will try to play for Izuku.)

- Surprisingly, he’s that one person always taking pictures. His phone is loaded with selfies of him and and his friends. The only physical evidence that he smiles. He carries a selfie stick around and no one lets him forget it (but he doesn’t understand why its so funny?? he likes taking selfies with his friends. :( )


- Unhealthy obsession with flower crowns. He has like 10 at his dorm that he wears around when they aren’t training. (He made them himself.)

- Rly good at comforting. best hugs. Well, after Shoji. Good listener. 11/10 would have as best friend. 

- Really likes fictional books. Especially action filled ones. Bakugou was v surprised when he was laying on his friend’s floor and looked under the bed to find. like. fifty books. They all have rlly colorful covers and outrageous plots, but Kiri will defend them to the ends of the earth.

- fav pass time is to just.. walk. Where is he? probs just walking around the school grounds. Has accidentally stayed out after curfew. Got an earful from Aizawa. 


- Makes some bomb ass tea. However, he prefers coffee or cocoa. Midnight regularly makes him brew the staff tea tho.

- Regularly daydreams about being a cat

- His apartment has one (1) picture hanging on the wall. Its of his cat. Mic gave it to him one year as a joke. The blond still cries a little whenever he sees it.

- he writes down and saves weird things his students say. He has enough material to make roughly 3 books filled with quotes. He’s planning to publish them when he retires.


- Regularly gets attacked by birds. No. Really. It’s an actual problem. Birds are assholes.

- Both of his parents have regular human heads. His birth was very odd. And his dad couldn’t exactly accuse his mom of cheating, ya know? That would just raise so many strange questions.

- He’s not much of an animal person. The irony is not lost to him.

- Prefers hand-held games. He also joins Todo for chess usually. They are pretty evenly matched.

  • a/n: wrote this without proofreading so yeah
  • Works overnight shifts because he doesn’t have to talk or see many people
  • Also he can do whatever he wants since there’s only like 12 other people working and they’re all off doing god knows what
  • is supposed to be restocking and shelving items but really, who’s even going to notice in the morning
  • drinks like 5 cups of coffee during his shift
  • can be found some nights falling asleep in the frozen foods aisle
  • once found Hansol hiding in one of the refrigerators and just walked by without doing anything
  • once woke up after a nap and it was dead silent, like no one around, there was no sound, nothing
  • spent an hour trying to find everyone
  • turns how they all thought it would be funny to see Jihoon’s reaction if he thought they were all gone
  • makes the new hires go fetch coffee for him, but it’s like 2 am and Chan doesn’t know where he’s supposed to get a cup of coffee at this time
  • steals food
  • glares at anyone that walks by and sees him eating food
  • ‘I work overnights, this place owes me food’
  • Very awkward around customers
  • Walks pass them while thinking ‘don’t talk to me don’t talk to me don’t talk to me’
  • Caught Soonyoung free dancing in the middle of the deli meat aisle
  • Is forced to the listen to the mixtapes that his coworkers put up on the speakers
  • Was also forced to listen to a rap battle that happened over the speaker and then Seungcheol proceeding to ask customers who they thought was better
  • When he does decide to do his job, Jihoon has to carry a ladder to help reach the top shelves and everyone snickers because they’re watching him over the security cameras
  • Got challenged by Soonyoung to do a cart race and at first Jihoon’s like ‘that’s dumb’
  • But five minutes later, he’s sitting in a cart with Seungcheol going to push him down the aisle while Soonyoung sits in another cart next to him with Hansol behind him and once Seungkwan makes his dramatic start motion, they’re off down the aisle
  • Ended up accidentally tipping over a shelf and spending the night cleaning it up
  • The next night, Jihoon ended up jousting with Soonyoung
  • Also ended up tipping another shelf
  • Playing with carts got banned
  • Obviously Jihoon met you in the store
  • It was one in the morning and you realized that you really needed to stock up on food or else you’d die
  • And you really didn’t have time to do it in the morning since you had work and school, so you just left your house at one in the morning to pick up groceries because why not
  • You enter the 24 hour grocery store, awkwardly passing by a few workers and hoping they don’t talk to you
  • And you continue on your way, pushing the cart as you begin to fill it full
  • And you’re almost done, just almost because you needed your favorite cereal or else you would not live tomorrow
  • so you go to the cereal aisle and guess what, it’s up there, on the top shelf where your hands could barely reach and now you’re forced to ask for help because you really really wanted the cereal
  • the store has this thing at the end of every aisle where you can press a button to request for help and so you press the button while waiting patiently in front of the cereal
  • ‘you needed help?’
  • And you’re so relieved because ‘yes I can finally get my cereal and get out’
  • But when you turn over, there’s this man, who’s probably just an inch taller than you and you’re just ‘how tf is he supposed to reach it if I can’t’
  • Jihoon is waiting impatiently for you to answer because you’ve been just staring at him for a minute now
  • You laugh awkwardly ‘I need help getting a cereal down, is there perhaps someone taller who can….’
  • Jihoon scoffs, it’s one in the morning and he’s already being demeaned for his height
  • ‘I can get it down too.’ Jihoon smugly states
  • And you’re just ‘are you sure, I mean I saw a pretty tall guy when I walked in’
  • Now you’re covering your mouth to hold back your laughter as he tries reaching for it on his tippy toes with his fingers barely brushing against the box
  • Cue Mingyu walking by ‘hey Jihoon need help’
  • ‘NO I DON’T NEED HELP I CAN DO IT’ Jihoon turns back to you who is holding back a smile, ‘DON’T GO ANYWHERE’
  • and so Jihoon leaves for a moment and just when you’re about to leave, Jihoon comes back with this little ladder and he’s angrily setting it up before walking on it and grabbing the box
  • ‘I told you I could get it’
  • You give an amusing nod ‘yes I’m very sorry I underestimated you’
  • and as much as Jihoon didn’t want to admit it, he found you really cute, the way you were just dressed in a tshirt and pajama pants, and the way your eyes crinkled when you smiled
  • and suddenly everyone is gasping
  • because what’s this
  • is that? Is that Jihoon at the cash register checking you out?
  • Yes, at one in the morning, Jihoon is scanning your items one by one in a seemingly slow fashion as if on purpose (because it was on purpose)
  • Light conversation fills the air and oh my
  • Is that? Is that Jihoon blushing with a smile
  • Needless to say, all the guys are staring at the security cameras with an awe look on their face because wow this was a different side to Jihoon
  • ‘oh my god what is he doing?’
  • ‘he’s walking her out’
  • ‘omg’ is what every says
  • and as you walk away, with your heart jumping out of your chest, you couldn’t help but wonder if you’d see the cute worker again
  • but of course you do see him again, you see him every night after that because you just happen to forget a few things and end up walking right back into the grocery store in the middle of the night
  • and suddenly you’re walking around the aisles with Jihoon, eagerly talking about anything and everything with smiles upon your faces as you’re being watched over the security cameras
  • after the sixth night of visiting and buying a lame stack of magazines, you and Jihoon awkwardly stand at the doors, waiting for one another to say ‘goodbye’ or perhaps something different
  • then the speakers start up
  • and there’s light bickering over the speaker before a loud ‘JUST ASK HER OUT ALREADY’
  • red faced and embarrassed, with slight anger on Jihoon’s part, you grin and Jihoon sheepishly smiles back
  • and it’s a smooth road from there with small bumps from the interfering male coworkers
  • you often visit Jihoon dead in the middle of the night with a warm cup of coffee you freshly brewed at midnight for him
  • and he’s so thankful because Chan brings him the wrong kind of coffee every night
  • give you free food on him
  • gives you your favorite cereal for free
  • also may or may not have signed you up for perks so that he can ring you up with discounts
  • doesn’t show much affection but when he does, he tries to do it in the corner of the store where there’s no cameras and he can sit and hold your hand without the guys gushing to him
  • did cart races with you even though they were banned
  • says he let you win
  • he actually did since he let Seungcheol push you and we all know Seungcheol is strong and could probably push you hard enough to go through a wall
  • you still tease Jihoon about his height, asking him all the time to get something from the top shelf and he will not let the others help because his pride is on the line
  • very much star struck by you
  • because it happens on more than one occasion when he catches you drifting during one your visits
  • sitting against the wall, Jihoon waits patiently for you to wake up since you had fallen asleep on his shoulder
  • fell asleep with you once and the guys all huddled around to catch pictures which they later sent you in the morning
  • Look he may be lazy and uninterested in his job, but once he sees you step through those doors with a steaming cup of coffee, suddenly his job doesn’t suck anymore. He doesn’t mind stocking the shelves if you’re there bickering with him over the non-existent color coded items on the shelves. And honestly, when his job gets boring and unbearable, even watching you rest your head on him is the most interesting thing in the world.

Final Years Headcanon:

There has to be a potion out there somewhere that sixth and seventh years frantically brew at midnight during exam time, it’s like 10x more potent than coffee and keeps you awake and focused like there’s no tomorrow…

But if you get the dose wrong, you end up running laps around the Quidditch Pitch until you fall over into a dead sleep.

When Exam Week concludes, Madam Pomfrey is left with an entire Wing full of comatose sixth/seventh years… and a grumbling Filch scours the grounds with Hagrid, trying to locate any outliers who may have gotten free and headed for the Forbidden Forest/decided to expend energy by dodging the Whomping Willow’s clutches.

[Usually the Centaurs tend to intercept them before they get too far… sure, they hate humans, but they also see them as children in an altered state. So they don’t fire… but redirect back out and away from the acromantulas and their ilk.]

Only once or twice has the Giant Squid (and the Merfolk) had to rescue an over-enthusiastic swimmer, who fell asleep mid-stroke.

First Years are confused and concerned to see it all go on.
Second through Fifth years are used to it, and either watch with fascination -making bets on who will fall and where- or just go about their days and step over the fallen whenever necessary, often never looking down.

The teachers know. They can’t stop it. Nothing can be done.
They have their own betting pool.
Dumbledore awards points for creativity, craftiness, and to whomsoever’s endeavours make him laugh.

Sixth Years most commonly get it wrong, but they’re learning on the go.
The potion is not in any book, it is never written down. That is the Unspoken Law of Hogwarts. Never Write It Down.
It has been passed down from student to student, by word of mouth, for centuries. All the teachers probably used it at some point or other.

The Marauders certainly did.
Molly Weasley, Arthur Weasley, the Longbottoms, all of them.
Though they’ll never officially condone it.

It is non-addictive, just useful.
Most do not use it more than a few times… it can leave you pinging off the walls, after all.

Fifth Years seek the recipe, but often only hear well-seeded ‘rumours’ about possible ingredients. Deliberately done.
Sixth Years have secret meetings with Seventh Years who pass on the basic recipe; they try to brew it in secret, all year long.

The entire grade invested. It is usually imperfect.
Subsequent brewings improve the experience.

Seventh Years, who have usually stumbled on the best methodology through trial and error, and the vague instructions they received, make near-perfect potions.

And so, come exam time, some are entirely erratic, some are only just… all burn through study and tests alike with little sleep, food, drink, bathroom time, and no loss of focus is suffered.
But come the week’s end… all crash.

Some just falling over, mid-stride. Some going to bed and awakening two days hence. Some mid-task (never good in a hands-on Care of Magical Creatures task). Some face-first into their food bowls.

And some… some experience the last-ditch surge.
The urge to take off running laps, to swim, to base-jump off the towers (please do not, Flitwick nearly had a coronary last time), to ride a unicorn/centaur/blast-ended skrewt into the sunset, to free-run down the moving staircases…

…and THEN keel over, pushing up Z’s mid-activity.

Never a dull moment for Hogwarts Students.

  • It is 1 am, the chat is deserted and quiet. A blonde girl with red glasses steps out of the shadows and only says : “I have an idea”
  • Yet another After Aleph tale is posted. It was already ongoing when you first arrived. You feel in your guts it will still be going long after you’re gone
  • It is midnight. Drama is brewing. The Knights are at the gates. The ghosts of long inactive mods gather and sharpen their claws for the bloodshed to come
  • A new canon is launched. You snicker, looking at the piles of corpses of long abandoned canons. “This place is where writing projects come to die”, you think
  • Someone mentions Agent Agriculteur. Admins fondly remember their first kill. Stories of old times are shared
  • A new After Aleph tale is posted. You faintly remember the last time one was published. It was long ago. You start too feel that the writers rythm of work should be scaled in geological times
  • You have finished your first translation work. You gather the courage to open a thread on the forum. You hope the legends about the guardian aren’t true
  • Turns out they are true. With a tired look they look down on you and utter the words : “Don’t you ever dare submit that piece of shit kind of work again”. You won’t dare
  • Someone mentions Xama or Mortarion. The staff erupts in mad cackling
  • You hear of Marcus. The staff speaks of him with respect. He’s long gone, but you feel like he could still pop on site to ban you
  • Tyzone is on the chat. You make a wish

Midnight Brew  - 6 Pak featuring Larry Berney (There Was A Time / Midnight Brew, 197?)

Enough: Sasusaku Canon Verse

His fingers skate along the edge of her jaw, and the pads of his fingers, callused from years of sword fighting and shuriken throwing, are impossibly soft.

And her hands, smaller but stronger—strong enough to crack the earth with one hit—, find themselves playing with his hair, twisting the strands with a gentleness that makes the corners of his eyes soften.

Distantly, in the back of her mind, she remembers the questioning looks, the raised eyebrows, the secret whispers, because the Uchiha is back and he is holding hands with the Girl.

He knows of the times she has cried over him, the moments they have tried to kill each other and failed, the nights when he has asked himself why Sakura loves him if all he has done is break her heart.

But they know that in their warm, neat apartment at midnight with tea brewing and cradled in each other’s arms, none of that really matters right now.

Because they have survived and they are in love.

And that is more than enough.

My Go-To Beers of 2013:

India Pale Ale: Uinta Hop Notch IPA - 

This is one of the most solid IPA’s I’ve ever tried, reasonably priced, not overly hoppy, and never disappointing. Also, it comes in cans.

Double IPA: Victory DirtWolf -

A truly incredible beer that brings forward notes of citrus, pine, and spice. Victory really knocked it out of the park with this new release.

Lager: Yuengling Lager - 

What can I say? It’s not a craft beer, but I have to say it may be the most solid beer in America. It is the definition of a go-to, at $22 for 24 bottles of reliable lager. Always consistent in flavor, whether it be from a can, bottle, or tap. I don’t think there is a beer that I drank more than Yuengling this year.

Black Lager: Port Brewing Company Midnight Expression - 

A local liquor store had 24oz. bottles on sale for three bucks; I tried one, and the next day, I went back and bought out all of the stock in the store. This beer turned me on to black lagers, a beer I will always reach for if available. 

Hefeweizen: Harpoon UFO Hefeweizen -

Delicious, light, and it comes in a 12 pack of cans. Many of last summer’s nights involved UFO.

Stout: Guinness - 

Over the past year, I’ve come to realize that there isn’t a beer that I enjoy drinking at a bar more than Guinness. It’s the most enjoyable beer that I can get on tap. It’s incredible. That’s about it. 

Imperial Stout: Ballast Point Sea Monster - 

In contrast to Guinness, this is the stout I’m looking to drink to get a bit rowdy. Bold chocolate, coffee, and currant notes with an ABV of 10%. This beer will get you to that place.

Pumpkin Ale: River Horse Hipp-O-Lantern - 

River Horse just moved their brewery about five minutes off of TCNJ’s (my school’s) campus, and that was somewhat of a miracle. I got to try this pumpkin ale fresh at the brewery, and it was always my go-to for a darker ale in the fall at our favorite local bar. It’s not overly pumpkin flavored, and that’s the trick. 

Belgian: Victory Golden Monkey - 

There will never be a beer that means more to me than Golden Monkey. There will also never be a beer that I will reach for more quickly at the end of a long week or after someone declares that the night is going into “full-throttle might not make it back alive” type mode. This 10% Belgian style tripel has alway been there for me when the need to get reckless is strong. 

Special Belgian: Allagash Black -

Currently, this is my favorite beer. It is a Belgian style stout. I don’t know what category that really falls into, but it is perfect. Strong roasted malt, dark chocolate, and subtle coffee make up the flavor profile of this beer, and it goes down so damn smooth.
