Dear @quirk-y ,
pry this from your cold dead hands? Challenge accepted.
She was anything but frail.
It was as clear as day to him, her determination and resilient nature shining through chocolate irises with ease, on and off the battlefield. She proved herself able to withstand his harsh demeanor, taking his explosive nature as a challenge -an obstacle between her and greatness and one that she wouldn’t let stop her if she had a say in it.
Uraraka may have lost the match that day, the over exertion of her quirk tiring her just when the fun really got started, but she won something more valuable than an annual title and years worth of bragging rights. She won Katsuki’s respect.
That was a feat much more worthy of praise.
