Ok. I’m going to be getting into A LOT about their relationshiop and all that shit here, so be prepared.
Now first, Eren is a minor in OUR WORLD. And I may sound like a broken record when I say this, but A BUNCH of you still can’t seem to get it through your bullheaded heads, so I’ll say it again:
AGE DIDN’T MATTER. I mean, it seriously didn’t. We see it wrong because we are in a different time and society has evolved, but looking at all the things people did and didn’t give a shit about back then, I’m pretty sure this was like an ant under a boot for them. They could really care less about it.
Also, Eren is almost an adult btw. Manga :)
Alright. For those of you who say that shipping these two is only in the fantasy of them having sex, and it looking hot, and I will admit, that’s true, but there are many of us here who ship it for an ENTIRELY different reason (like me) and actually think more into it. Yah, I will say, sex between those two would be fucking hot, but that’s not what I’m into it for. They are both similar in the sense that they want to protect those they love, and that the Corps means A LOT to them. And they both carry a lot of responsibility. So let me show you now how they “complete” each other. Yes. I said complete.
Eren and Levi both have big responsibilities. Levi is humanity’s strongest, and Eren is humanity’s last hope. They are both being counted on by countless lives. And sometimes, Eren needs a little reminder that BECAUSE he’s humanity’s last hope, he can’t give up when he feels like he’s letting everyone down because innocents were killed. and he needs to be reminded that he has to keep fighting or else things will just get worse than they already seem. And he needs someone with the same kind of pressure feeling to remind him this and actually mean it and feel it by heart. And the only one who can ACTUALLY do this is Levi. Levi, and Levi alone. Not Mikasa. Not Armin. Not anyone. He needs someone who is going through the same kind of situation as him to support him, and would ya look at that?! Levi provides it. That’s a damn big connection in itself, and I still have more shit to tell you all
Eren is strong, yes, but still a bit inexperienced, and he has much to learn, and much to experience before he truly becomes strong. And that’s where Levi comes in. There is a certain saying I like, and it goes like this: The difference between a master and a beginner is that the master has failed more times than the beginner. Levi has been through so much pain, mistakes, and learning experiences, and that has made him strong and skilled beyond belief. And Eren, who sees this strength, just can’t help but admire him for it (hence, his deep respect and admiration for Levi) and as it would be explained in an anime as: “I just fall more and more in love with him.” Don’t get pissy at me for saying that you Ereri haters! It’s true. No, you can’t see Eren saying or thinking that, but that’s what the feeling would be explained as if it were to be put into an anime. Eren would see Levi’s skill, and just learn so much from him. Levi could (and fucking does) bring out potential and strength in Eren, and brings Eren the experience. Their bond tightens in this way, in the way that they each have something to learn from each other, expanding their respect and admiration for each other.
And for GODS SAKE PEOPLE just fucking THINK about what would happen if one of these two died. If Levi died while Eren was around, Eren would be distraught. He lost one he so deeply respected and admired. Yah, he’s gonna be pissed, horrified, depressed, and just fucking all over the place. He’d be pissed because the world just killed off someone he so much admired and (yes I’m saying it) loved. They just took his beloved mentor away from him. He’d be horrified and depressed because he’d blame himself for not being able to save him, for not being able to be there and put a stop to his death. I mean, seriously. Everyone, let’s get over our fucking stubborness and think. You could see this happening, you really could, whether you ship them or not. And that right there should just prove their close and tight relationship.
And if Eren died while Levi was around? Well of course Levi wouldn’t show a damn thing on the surface, but it’d be like losing Farlan and Isabel, but worse. This “kid,” this person was put under his wing, was put under his watch, and he failed to protect him. This boy that he’s been teaching was killed. Levi would be horrified inside as well, shocked, and I’m pretty fucking sure that he will soon find that he does, in fact, regret losing him, and will realize that he is sad, and his disappearance does affect him. He’ll be horrified and shocked that he let Eren get killed, and that wasn’t even able to do anything. He’d realize that this boy who waltzed into his life did matter to him, and did have an impact on him. Levi had taken him under his wing, he was under his watch, and Levi would be pretty distraught at the fact that he let Eren become killed. His student, the one he took under his wing, killed, gone. That’d definitely be a blow on Levi, no doubt.
Yes. This man is as hot as difficult his last name is …. VERY. Matthias is not your typical good-looking hunk actor / wanna-be model with gorgeous eyes and prominent face. The Belgium born actor landed his first interesting role (well at least to me) in Roskam’s “Bullhead” and shortly after that in Audiard’s brilliant “Rust and Bone”. “Bullhead” is a cinematic masterpiece if you prefer long shots and very little dialogue in a movie (I’m a cinema snob - sue me) but that’s the whole point of the film. Personally, I adored him in “Suite Français” (little French town occupied by Nazi Germans in the WW2, French girl falls in love with Schoenaerts who plays the role of a veeeery cultured and hot Nazi Lieutenant who of course turns out to be an intellectual totally against the regime - I stop now so I won’t spoil it all for you). All in all: he is a great actor with quite huge potential, I only hope Hollywood won’t swallow him. But, I don’t want to bore anyone with cinematic details. Style wise, this guy landed an “ambassadorship” for Louis Vuitton in 2014 when he advertised the brand’s leather goodies and posed next to a very nice sports car. He also worked on a lot of Vogue and Dazed Magazine features.
All in all, Matthias has a Gyllenhaal-ish kind of style: rusty around the edges, urban, and very casual but boy oh boy when he dresses up for an event: magic happens.
