please be gentle with yourself. you’re trying. if it’s taking you longer than you thought to achieve something or get somewhere that’s okay. try not to compare yourself to others too much because not everyone gets to where they need to be right away. you’re alive that’s what matters. keep trying. you’ll get there.
It sits inside him like that night he drowned himself in stomach acid and his father’s whiskey. It sits there all heavy, all on his shoulders, all on his chest and in his teeth. It sits there bile-yellow, makes him feel sick.
You know to cradle it, to let it take home in you. You let it grow on you, give it your arms and neck and back to stretch into. It asks for a place to hide and you give it your open palms. It sleeps there, thorns and all, flowers and all. It is soft and wild and leaves red wherever it goes.
He can’t look you in the eye, says it feels like seasickness, like the nausea you get while spinning in circles. Says it makes him feel dizzy, makes him feel weak. You hold open your hands and all he sees are thorns, all he sees are yellow leaves and all the weight.
Reena B.| What is it like to fall in love with someone who hates love?
it’s weird when people tell me “aren’t you sad you take a lot of pictures of your friends having fun but you’re not in the picture too” because I do feel like I am in the picture, just from a different perspective. I was there too, I was alive and happy and completely inside the moment as much as them. it’s even more magical to think about it, the part of the picture you cannot see but just imagine inside of your mind
Let's get familiar with each other's body of work.
I’ve been thinking about (and doodling) this actor AU quite a lot today and here are the results. More headcanons and ideas I’ve came up with.
Jean and Marco’s actors love reading fanfics about their characters and recovering some scenes from them, while they’re all alone in their house. I don’t think there’s a need for me to explain, which parts of the stories Jean likes to try out the most.
Armin’s actor is studying on Harvard, while they’re not working on a movie and he has to deal with a lot of “arm in and out” jokes.
Sasha’s actress has some problems with her fans at university as well. They always refers to her as a ‘Potato Girl’ and she’s given a lot of potatoes and food from literally everyone. She doesn’t really mind it though - just as her character, the girl’s appetite is bigger then the Colossal Titan.
Mikasa’s actress liked the line 'This world is cruel, but also very, very beautiful" that much, that she tattooed it on her right shoulder blade in Japanese, which is her native language.
Jean’s actor uses a lot of his phrases (such as “we gotta bitchslap that skunk first!”) during playing the video games with Marco, who just rolls his eyes at him and laughs a lot.
Levi’s actor love cats. He has five of them, named Petra, Gunter, Auruo, Erd and Eren after the members of his squad. He’s considering buying another six after his character is getting a new squad to command.
Marco’s actor is like super flexible (I mean, just look at those damn perfect, long legs. They must be flexible as hell), 'cause he’d practiced a lot of sport as a kid (like sailing, fencing, karate, horse riding (which he basically still does from time to time, but in a little different way and with different, a way more sexy, horse), ice skating, basketball and swimming). According to this, he does a lot of stunts and stuff as background characters, even after his character death. The crew just covers his freckles, or doesn’t do any close ups, so he’s still working with the team and Jean is all happy, because his boyfriend is around all the time and they can make use of Marco’s flexibility during breaks.
Some of the kids shown in the anime are just the children or family members of the actors and crew. Like this cute girl in blue dress seen in episode 25 is Pixis actor’s granddaughter and those lovely kids, who Eren smiled at in ep 17 are Erd’s siblings.
Gunter’s actor is actually the only one who can speak German and only Mikasa understand Japanese, so everybody constantly asks them to translate (or sing, but they both refuse until they’ get drunk) Guren no Yumiya or Jiyuu no Tsubasa to them.
Marco and Jean’s actor love to sing 'Call Your Name’ (especially chorus) together as loudly and messy as they possibly can. They also use some strange things as microphones (like the swords’ handles or props imitating ripped off limbs).
