why why why why do i have to ship them

the thing about Bakugou is that, in the limits that his personality allows, he’s soft for Kirishima - he calls him by name, listens to him and always answers him, tries to help him out as best as he can, accepts his help when Kirishima offers it, actively works to make him feel better when he’s down, never yells at him unless it’s an answer to Kirishima’s teasing, has no problems in complimenting him and pointing out his strength, he’s soft for Kirishima

he openly considers him a friend and treats him as such, he cares and doesn’t really try to hide it, though his inexperience in showing that sort of feelings does make him come off as awkward now and again 

I guess what I mean to say is it’d be nice if the fandom could remember that, instead of writing him as angry and prickly and downright offensive and uncaring when dealing with what has been recognized by the canon as his best friend and someone he does enjoy the company of over and over again

shipping fictional relationships : super cool. don’t stop, ever. 

shipping actors in a relationship : if the actors are cool with it, continue.

swearing up & down that said actors are in a relationship or in love despite all evidence to the contrary : stop. oh my gOD stop.

     "I won’t let you alone… 
Because I will always be with you”

anonymous asked:

I'm so glad that you also ship BakuDeku! Can you give us an insight as to why you love/ship them? I love reading why people love them! 💖

Oh, my God. 

First off, ah. I just. *Incoherent stuttering.* I’m very, very particular and choosy with ships. I either ship one specific couple per fandom or no one at all. So far I have only two OTPs and I adore both for entirely different reasons: KilluGon from Hunter X Hunter and BakuDeku from Boku No Hero Academia.

I’m. So. Excited. To. Talk. About. This.

This is gonna be long, Anon. I hope you’re ready for it. 

Alright. 

Why do I love BakuDeku? 

Or, why do I love the Katsuki/Izuku dynamic in general? 

Such a loaded question for quite a lot of reasons… 

I’ll do my best to articulate my scrambled thoughts and put them all down here and make sense with them. To start off with, when it comes to ships, I usually have to be drawn to both characters individually. I don’t really like the concept of one character feeling “incomplete” without the other, necessarily. 

In this case, I related to Izuku Midoriya almost instantly, and then, surprisingly, found very similar traits in Katsuki Bakugou that I couldn’t ignore or even want to ignore. I respect both characters individually and absolutely adore their dynamic; the creative potential in portraying them both together and apart is so vast and endless that it just spurs the creative mind with no limits.

To explain this better, I tend to theorize and analyze potential relationships in anime/movies/books/television shows based on their clear connection through flaws, personality compatibility, ambitions, strengths and weaknesses. 

I understand that this factor is applicable to every ship in existence, pretty much, but I firmly believe that, since each mind is unique with its own preference, that the actual conclusion one can come to when applying these principles to their chosen ships can yield multiple different results.

So, back to BakuDeku with this. 

Katsuki Bakugou and Izuku Midoriya are foils of each other. 

To clear some questions regarding the usage of the word “foil” here, I’m speaking of the traditional literary term. 

A foil in literature is a character that exhibits qualities that highlight and contrast with another character as means of highlighting the traits of that particular character through their personality, actions, etc. 

Usually this is the case with the rival of the protagonist, and so forth. 

Think Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter, for example. They are a very typical example of character foils. 

Alright, so. With this in mind…

I value the complexities in character dynamics and the more introspective basis of relationships above everything else when deciding whether or not I ship two characters. So, the contrast between Izuku and Katsuki’s personalities and ambitions are fascinating to me, and as a result, I fell in love with their dynamic as characters outside of the realm of romantic potential.

I’ll get more into the “romantic potential” part later. But, honestly, that part of the context is only the footnote to what I love about these two.

Katsuki and Izuku, despite their differences, are essentially quite similar in what they wish to achieve as characters in their universe. 

I’ll go through both characters individually with their bullet point contrasts that I can think of at the moment.

Katsuki Bakugou is…

  • He is egotistical, yet insecure. 
  • He is reckless, yet he is methodical. 
  • He’s aggressive, yet he’s meticulous. 
  • He appears like a typical delinquent, but he’s undoubtedly very intelligent. 
  • He’s straightforward and brash, yet standoffish and focused. 
  • He is entitled, yet an extremely hard worker. 
  • He’s presumptuous and self-indulgent, and believes his skills and himself are all he needs.
  • He is, essentially, the most insecure when it comes to Izuku due to their connection and history. His pride is, ultimately, his downfall.

Now, by contrast, we have Izuku.

Izuku Midoriya is…

  • He is selfless, yet insecure. 
  • He is analytical, yet he, too, can be reckless. 
  • He lacks self-preservation, but sees it as a necessary strength, rather than a roadblock. 
  • He is emotional, yet also quite meticulous. 
  • He is an extremely hard worker, yet doesn’t believe he deserves anything worthy of praise. 
  • He believes his achievements are based on luck rather than skill, and that he can only achieve his dreams based on what others have done for him.
  • He is too damaging to his own self-confidence for his own good and far too willing to appraise the ego of characters like Katsuki to allow himself room to appreciate his own accomplishments.

Ah. There are many, many more to choose from than just these. I could go on about that particular listing for hours. But, I won’t.

With this all being said, Izuku is constantly chasing after Katsuki in the beginning. He yearns for his approval, for his attention, because of his intense admiration and fondness of his friend. Katsuki, however, could not care less and bullies Izuku on top of saying honestly the most horrible things.

There is one thing I want to make clear about this particular ship. I understand the concerns with the abusive context and I’m never going to defend Katsuki’s actions towards Izuku because they are, most definitely, extreme. 

It’s tragic, actually, how Izuku is willing to be patient with Katsuki and still consider him to be a valuable person in his life and even a close friend. Which, at this moment, they are not. 

That being said… I find it tragic, but all the more admirable of a character like Izuku to ultimately admit that what Katsuki has said and done is truly horrible (taken in context from both the manga and anime) and that he is willing to acknowledge Katsuki as a “jerk,” but also as someone who is, despite all of that, very talented and driven.

Izuku is, himself, driven and ambitious. His reasonings for becoming a hero and Katsuki wishing to become a hero are on polar opposite ends, yet their drives, their passion, their vigor are so incredibly similar in length that I can hardly see that matched in any way by other character dynamics in this series.

And that’s what I love the most about them in general, romantic context aside.

Now, still, the extremely damaged history is also what makes this ship so incredibly complicated. And I love that about it. 

What I want in this ship is to see growth, forgiveness, change, reluctant acceptance, and understanding between two characters who have always been on the same spectrum, but have never acquired the true level of insight to reach that same wavelength.

Katsuki and Izuku could never have a successful relationship at their current age, under their current circumstances, and without any forgiveness or acceptance taking place. 

The road to trusting and respecting one another is long, torturous, and riddled with pain and learning. It takes time, it takes energy, and by applying the romantic context to these two characters outside of their already marvelous and fascinating (albeit saddening) dynamic, it allows a new perspective to take place.

This, my friend, is a perspective that requires no easy path. 

I love that Izuku has such incredible faith in Katsuki and will always want to protect him or defend him at the drop of a hat. I love that we’re slowly seeing Katsuki’s growing respect and acceptance of Izuku as a person in the series, and the incredibly slow and (dare I say, explosive) build to their potential friendship. I love that we’re able to see the unfolding complexities and hurt and anger and passion that have driven them apart with blinded perspectives on both sides. 

I could go on for hours about this, Anon, but I think I kind of summed up most of what I can in one sitting without this going on for too long. 

I hope this satisfies you for now, Anon! Thank you so much for the ask. :)

2Nu haters be like:

How I feel about this Finn/Jack stuff


If someone told me they shipped me and one of my best friends, I would tell them ‘Horray for you!’ and then I’d move on with my life.


But if they kept saying it you know what it would become?


ANNOYING


And I would probably tell them that.


Why is it a crime to say how you feel? If that’s how Jack and Finn feel , why are people attacking them?? It’s literally nothing personal against you as a person, they just don’t appreciate being shipped together. Why can’t people respect that?


I don’t really care what people ship, as long as it’s not harming other people. So if you ship Finn and Jack, I can’t really stop you.


But can you like, stop thrusting it in their faces?


They’ve expressed how they feel about it. AND IT MAKES THEM UNCOMFORTABLE

PEOPLE WHO HAVE GAY (MAN*MAN) SHIPS, PLS HELP ME

Ah, I don’t know if I will get help here, but listen (read) to my story. So I’m a college student who is taking an academic investigation course. So, basically, I need to write a monography about a theme I’ve asigned and by the end of december. The thing is that you can ask for a free theme if your grades were excellent the last semester before. And my grades were, in fact, pretty good. I thought it’d be easy because, you know, it’s a FREE theme, you can write about anything you want. However, I wasn’t interested in anything… And then I got this silly and funny idea of writing about why a lot of fangirls, nowadays, like so much turning heterosexual characters into gay ones. Like, you can have novels/movies/bands/series/comics with actual gay characters, but I’ve noticed (?) we tend to stick with this usual “oh, I know they’re not gay, but shhhh, I ship them and they’re already married in my head” thing. I even thought about taking my collection of fanfiction as a proof lol

But, honestly, I was just joking with my mentor when I told him that, however he was actually interested about the theme. He said “Do girls do that? I’ve never heard that before, that’s actually interesting…”. And then a teacher I have in another course told me that she was also intrigued about this. She even recommended writing about this with a psychological and sociological perspective…

I was like “ummmm, okay???” because, seriously, I WAS JUST JOKING, but everybody seem so intrigued and curious about this. And, well, I’m not going to deny I’d love to write about this… However, you can’t write an monography if you don’t have academic texts which can support your ideas and justify them. So, I’m asking you for help here. My native language is Spanish, but I know that I won’t find that much information using only that language. So, please, if you had any academic texts with information which could help me, please, let me know. I’m trying to explain what could lead fangirls to homosexuality characters and don’t tell me a “I do it bc I like it” because I believe there’s a deeper reason than that. It’s not something which is enjoyed by every single fangirl, but it’s definitely enjoyed by a LOT of them. Why does gay fanfiction excite you that much? Why do you think that main character looks better with his best male friend than with his actual girlfriend?? Why do you like gay so much when involves people/characters who are not gay??? Why do you believe they’s cute? Why do you believe they’re hot? Why do you think your gay ship is so perfect it hurts? Like, I’m telling you all here, I have hetero and lesbic ships, but the gay ones (boyxboy ones) excite the most. And I know there are a lot of girls like me out there, so please help me, I’m begging you.

I want to explain that conduct, why this satisfies a lot of fangirls so much. Just recommend me books and stuff to read, so I can give write about this while making sense. You can also message me or you can tell me to send you a message, it’s okay.

28 Days of OTP


Day 8: Bertholdt x Reiner

I honestly love this couple to death because its adorable. I love how awkward Bertholdt can be and Reiner being the powerhouse. (what is he, mitochondria?) 

But their dynamic as characters makes me ship them so hard :)
