the permanent efficacy of grace

It occurs to him gradually that Captain Levi is small.

It takes months for the nerves to go away, for the uncomfortable flutter in the pit of his stomach when Captain Levi turns flat eyes on him to settle. It takes almost a year for him to be even somewhat comfortable around Captain Levi.

And it takes three years for Eren to come out of the worst of his adolescence and grow another four inches and realize that Captain Levi is small.

He wakes up one day and heads down into the kitchen to grab food and Captain Levi is there, pressed on his tiptoes, reaching into one of the cabinets for the tin of loose tea leaves that gets gradually passed around between Survey Corps members. Eren plucks it off its shelf for him and is startled when Captain Levi has to look up to thank him.

ໃ Widsth Orpheo, space pirate captain extraordinaire???

AW YEAH SPACE PIRATE AU

Widsth Orpheo ran away from some sort of horrifying space military academy in his early teens because they ordered him to do something he considered dishonest. And also because they wouldn’t accept his ~free-spirited musician heart~. He stowed away on a pirate’s starship and was very nearly jettisoned out the airlock for his trouble, but luckily Weeds’ panic mode is improvisation and he came up with a passable ditty about how REALLY FREAKING AWESOME EVERYONE ON THIS SHIP IS PLEASE DON’T KILL ME in about five minutes flat. The captain thought this was so hilarious (“so please don’t throw me out the airlock/that isn’t really a fair block……. of justice???”) that he kept Weeds around as a cabin boy. Then later a crewmember, then an officer, then eventually captain in his own right, notorious for his feats of mischievous derring-do upon merchant ships, his penchant for flirting with everything over the age of consent, and his strict adherence to his own weird moral code. His vessel is called the Euclid, and much as he loves the pirate life, he’s feeling like he needs a really big adventure to shake him out of the pillaging rut. And because this is a story and dramatic timing is a thing, that’s right when the dreams start.
