“I realized a long time ago that you were a basket case, but I didn’t think it was this bad.” Spirit rubbed lazily at his eye, stifling a yawn which would have broken the already exhausted atmosphere between them. This wasn’t necessarily the best situation for him to judge his former partner in, but he desperately craved some light to alleviate the crackling tension in the room. “Seriously. How did you ever live on your own? It’s like you need a constant babysitter or something…”
Spirit is my problematic fav. I adore him. I have always adored him. I find him complex and interesting and way more deep than the fandom gives him credit for. He’s funny and sweet and loyal and so good, but also so trashy.
I love him.
All the people I ship romantically with this character
His left hand. His right hand, too.
My non-romantic OTP for this character
HIS AND STEIN’S FRIENDSHIP COULD SUSTAIN ME FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. It is so wholesome and wonderful and very VERY complicated but also very funny and wholehearted and just
It’s so important to me. So important. Also, Spirit’s relationship to Marie, and Spirit’s never ending quest to get SteinMarie together.
Spirit is the real VIP here. Shipped it before he even knew what shipping WAS.
My unpopular opinion about this character
Okay, honestly? I think we need to stop demonizing Spirit. We have to. He fucked up, we get that. But he spends most, if not all, of the series trying to make up for the fact that he cheated on Maka’s mother and, listen, I don’t like cheaters, but what he did is done and how long does he have to grovel and beg before he gets an ounce of compassion from this fandom for all the OTHER things he’s had to deal with, like the PTSD that Stein gave him from cutting him open, or the fact that Spirit constantly tries to be there for his daughter to show her support, which is infinitely more than her mother can say.
Also, idk if this is an opinion or just a headcanon, but can we plz accept pansexual Spirit into our hearts?
One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.
MAKA SHOULD HAVE HUGGED HIM WHEN SHE SAW THAT HE GOT OFF THE MOON. SHE SHOULD HAVE. SHE SHOULD HAVE. SHE SHOULD HAVE.
spirit albarn is literally me as a parent
me @ people at my kid’s school: don’t you dare go after my kid
kids at my kid’s school: eh they aren’t even hot anyway
me: um EXCUSE YOU YOU TAKE THAT BACK MY KID IS THE HOTTEST
So, since I started re-watching Soul Eater, I decided to try out Not as well.
No hate, but one thing tho I would’ve preferred to see in a slice-of-life prequel would’ve been a look at the older generation’s (i.e., Spirit’s, Stein’s, perhaps even Maka’s mom, etc.) school days.
Mainly because there’s a part in the manga/anime–I don’t think they’ve shown, but then again, I’m only about halfway thru the main manga atm–that implies Stein went and met Excalibur at one point (going off his expression when he finds Kid and Black Star discussing it) and since Stein was presumably partnerless for a little bit after Spirit left him, I have a headcanon that he decided Excalibur would be a good replacement and went to seek him out only to have things go awry. (I think it would’ve made for some pretty good comedy.)

Spirit more than ships SteinMarie: he is the head of their fanclub, They meet every Tuesday and there are snacks. Spirit probably wrote friendfiction of those two back when they were students at the DWMA. It was explicit. And terrible. Spirit had a shirt commissioned that spelled out “SteinMarie” on it and wore it to pretty much every hangout session. Hell, he probably missed out on hangout sessions just so those two would spend more time together. Spirit probably introduced Stein to Marie. Spirit sobbed at their wedding, loudly, and ended up having to wipe his face with Stein’s shirtsleeve. Spirit got those two a cake that read “Congrats on the Sex!” when they revealed their pregnancy.
Spirit bought so many gold and silver baby clothes that he singlehandedly kept that baby dressed for two years. Spirit started the betting pool of when Stein and Marie would get together. And won. Before they got together, Spirit offered to be Stein’s wingman, to which Stein cackled because, c’mon Spirit needs to pay women to spend time w/ him, but it’s the thought that counts. Spirit made honeymoon comments and lewd comments regarding how Marie was living with Stein. Spirit bought them tickets to Tahiti for their second honeymoon. Spirit gifted them a sex swing. It was actually very nice. Spirit is more than a SteinMarie shipper: he’s their biggest fan.
