In the safe harbor au, Where is inko in all this and how does aizawa find out [ I love this thing so much]
to be honest, I hadn’t given Inko much thought in this AU. I mean the nice clear cut answer is that Izuku still needs a mom in order to be born so… she could be “dead anime mom”. Meaning she and Toshinori were married at one point and she passed away.
But I’m really tired of that solution and Inko is such an amazing character (unlike other anime parents) that I’m would rather find a role for her to be so she can actually be around. Sure that means she’s not related to Izuku but look, she can be Aizawa’s mom friend/neighbor who is like “You’re finally dating Shouta! I’m so proud of you!”
Shouta: “But… I’m not?”
Inko: “Let me know if you need anything. Do you have enough food? Wait, can any of them cook? I know your cooking skills, Shouta. Tell me you’re not feeding them takeout?”
