-banging fists on table rythmically- ANGST ANGST ANGST ANGST! So how's about Fatgum, Aizawa and Toshinori reacting to their pro hero s/o jumping between them and a deadly attack and getting very badly injured because of it and nearly dying? >:3c
yayyyy baby’s first angst request!
- Fatgum is also known as a very “acts before speaks” character at times, so he can’t exactly scold his s/o because it’d be hypocritical, but sitting beside the hospital bed he struggles to hold back tears as he holds their hand. (Assuming that he didn’t convert to muscle since you didn’t ask for fitgum,) he’d ask things like “Why did you do it?? I could have just absorbed the shock… Why didn’t you let me take the blow.. It kills me to see you here like this…”. When the doctor told him that they’d survive he felt like he was getting a second chance to give them a good life, even if they’re the ones really getting a second chance.
- His usual sleepy demeanor would completely change in the waiting room. He wouldn’t be able to sleep even if he tried, even if someone sedated him, until he knew they’d be okay. He stayed in the hospital for 5 hours, anxiety and regret eating away at him until finally, the surgeon comes out, wipes sweat from his brow, and tells him that they’ll be just fine. When he’s allowed into the hospital room, they’re still asleep, but he just stands there, watching their chest rise and fall in sweet life. He cries silently before going back home, and taking a sick day to greet you when you finally wake again.
- The scene replays over and over again as he sits, slumped over in the sterile waiting room of the hospital they flew them to. He doesn’t realize how hard his fists are clenched until his nails cut into his palm. Nobody could get a response out of him. When he’s finally let into his love’s room, knowing that they’d survive, he lays his head on the edge of their bed, silently weeping and cursing his power’s time limit. He promises them that he’d never let this happen again, before going home with new resolve. In the morning, he’d drop off some flowers by your bed.
