but armin is a recent favorite

\Tribute To SNK Chapter 50///
Here’s the final product of the wip I posted a while ago! I recently finished chapter 50 of the manga, and it was probably my favorite so far. It was apparently inspirational enough to get me back into watercolors, which I haven’t played with in months! I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it(´v`)

As always, reblogs are appreciated, and a huge thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of me already!

Cosmicguro’s (very old and very regret filled) Ereri Rec List

I’ve spent more time reading ereri fics than I have actually watching the show, here are my favorites.

It’s Fine  This one almost made me cry???? It’s not really even that sad I’m just lame. 

Isn’t that a cliché for you; the teacher falling in love with the student. I hated myself for it. I hated how I wasn’t just romantically attracted to him anymore, but physically as well. Mornings became awkward for me as I found myself having more cold showers than warm. Though I was ashamed to say sometimes I just didn’t even bother and gave in, imaging his breath on my face and his hand around me as I pumped myself under the sheets. 

1/1 Chapters, Mature rating. 10173 Words.

Wayward Wings Really cute and fluffy wing fic. 

As he straightened up, his wing jerked, and Eren stiffened as he felt it smack into something—or rather, someone.

“I’m so sorry!” he burst out, but as he whirled around, his wings gave another spasm and hit Corporal Levi in the face. Again. “Sorry!”

He held his wings stiff against his back, though he could feel them straining to move, as he stared at Corporal Levi.

Corporal Levi, whose face and hair were now half-covered in mud. Corporal Levi, whose expression hadn’t changed but who was more likely than not livid. Oh.

My Home Is Where Your Heart Is Smol Mikasa kills me

Single father Levi is left scrambling to find an after school daycare for his daughter, Mikasa, when his regular babysitter announces that her husband’s job is being relocated. The only problem - they’re all far more expensive than he can afford.

The solution to his dilemma comes in the form of a college student, Eren, who will do it for a fraction of the cost - as long as Levi will save him from a steady diet of ramen and pop-tarts by feeding him dinner every night before he leaves.

11/11 Chapters, Explicit rating,  14683 Words

Stay For As Long As You Have Time So fluffy and domestic, I love every bit of it. 

It was on these benches and paths that he spent most of his time, wandering around and letting the wind take him wherever he so chose. Mikasa had always scolded him for doing this; after all, she said, wandering around the school at night wasn’t the safest thing to do. But it was daytime when Eren first saw him, so she had no right to criticize.

taking flight I’m always a slut for wing fics

“Touch his wings. I dare you.”

In which Levi has (really pretty) wings, Jean is an asshole and Eren can’t resist a dare. [Levi/Eren], wingfic AU.

1/1 Chapters, General rating,  1680 words

Overdose This one is really hot and the god like au is a nice change from what I usually read. 

Eren Jaeger was fucked. Ironically in both the figurative and literal sense.
On the one hand, there was the misfortune of having made a colossally stupid bet with one Jean Kirschtein involving the two of them racing to get laid ASAP. If he failed that, he would be figuratively fucked.
On the other hand, if he were to succeed in completing the bet, he would be well and truly fucked in the most literal sense of the word.

7/? Chapters, Explicit rating, 56399 Words

Here are my absolute favorites out of this list, they are some of the most amazing things I have ever read and they fucked me up emotionally. 

When I’m No Longer Young And Beautiful This one, this one right here. I have no idea what to say to describe just how amazing this fic is. The mental manipulation in it just fucks me up. 

Levi never wants Eren to grow up.

“Let’s see if I can make you pretty again.”

TW: Pedophilia and slight mental manipulation, and kinda yandere!levi

1/1 Chapters, Explicit Rating,  2323 Words.

time after time Cheesy pet shop au? Sign me the fuck up.

“Who tells someone they look like a cat?”

“No, I said the cat looked like you,” Eren corrects, looking back to the cat and ignoring Levi’s mounting confusion.

1/1 Chapters, Not rated, 5003 Words.

Art of war  Claps hands together This right here is so cute I almost died.

Noisy neighbors, nursling dinosaurs, satanic box cutters, shitty convenience store management, the word ‘fuck’, hereditary (but not really) homosexuality, beer and ramen, pennies, truckstops, strippers, closets, semi-public defacing, rings, house parties, “recreational” drug use, accidental rendezvous, toxic stew (don’t eat the stew), nice abs, housewives–batteries not included, over-educational movie sessions, copious domesticity, kittens named after landlords, a shit joke at participating locations, and many, many happy endings.
A modern AU in which Eren moves into the apartment directly above Levi’s.

King of Carrot Flowers Yassssssssssssss

It’s a Sunday. He’s washing his favorite mug and trying not to pay too much attention to the funeral that’s going on across the street.

(Levi lives across the street from a cemetery and Eren’s father has recently passed away.)

13/13 Chapters, Mature Rating, 23637 Words

1994 This is pretty famous in the fandom so you’ve probably heard of it, but it’s really good. 

Before cell phones. Before the Kardashians. Before internet porn. The year is 1994. Eren, Mikasa, and Armin, poor kids from the wrong side of the tracks, have been transferred with the rest of their neighborhood to the posh, uptown Trost High (Home of the Titans). Mikasa and Armin seem to fit in well enough, but Eren isn’t quite so lucky. Of course, most of this has to do with Eren’s personality. When he accepts a bet to lose his virginity (and actually prove that someone likes him) by the end of the semester, it’s hard for him to deny the improbability of winning. After all, the only one he seems to be talking to these days is the weirdly pretty (and just plain weird) goth working at the donut shop down the street… 

26/26 Chapters, Explicit, 124249 Words

half light I’m currently re-reading this one because it’s so amazing. 

He wouldn’t say that they’re friends, really. They’re not quite just acquaintances either; the more he thinks about it, Eren’s not sure how to describe their relationship. They sort of… tolerate each other, in different ways.

But yeah, the more he thinks about it (and he does think about it quite often), Eren thinks that he’d like for them to be friends.

(AU where Eren tries to figure out what you do when friendly feelings turn into something more.)

Now here comes my all time favorite Ereri fic in the entire world

Disobey me This fic is so amazingly written, has a fantastic plot and portrays the characters so well. I am so happy I found this fic! If you read it tell her I sent you! :> 

After countless months of depression from the death of his mother, Eren had decided to start anew. First step was simple, go back to school. Now, normal students would followed the rules and went about their daily school lives in peace but Eren was no ordinary boy. Different than others, he is passionate, courageous, and disobedient, and his English teacher became well aware of that. But there is another side of him that no one, not even Eren himself, is aware of. Everyone has their secrets, and with each confession comes more answers as to what the hell his father did.

A story about a stubborn young adult, who has an impulsive drive for justice, that gets himself into more trouble than anyone could have ever imagined.

(That one fic that says it’s a High School AU and ends up having a ridiculous amount of other themes that eventually take over. Also, there is a lot of fluff.)

19/?  Chapters (On Going), Explicit Rating, 126155 words.

I can not stress how magnificent this is.

That’s it for my Ereri Fanfic Rec list. If any of the links do not work then please message me. 

anonymous asked:

can i ask why do you still have sympathy for reiner and the other warriors? i used to feel bad for them cause it really seemed like they have a good reason but now it turned out they don't, they just want to please marley. i'm so disappointed with them. (I hope you'll reply to this cause i really feel like i missed something since alot of people still love them)

Well…

For starters, sympathy isn’t synonymous with any faction mooching the SL’s ass. Many opposite factions each believed traits you could find in the protagonists as well, without serving the SL’s best interests. Rod, Kenny and Sannes are good examples.

Considering what I wrote earlier, it isn’t hard to understand they’ve been conditioned to think negotiations with Paradis weren’t possible, that they had no choice but to fight. What do you want them to do? Rebel? Someone else tried that already, you know:

Grisha joining the Revolutionary forces - Ch. 86

And well, we all know how it ended.

Grisha being tortured - Ch. 87

Oh yeah, and being sent on Paradis as pure titans for the rest of their lives soon after. 

Oh and another thing: people doesn’t equate government. They have to fight for Marley but they aren’t taking any pleasure in doing this either. Besides, what good would it serve to defect and fight for people susceptible to destroy the world because the titan power they hold is the strongest of them all?

I’ve explained myself quite well in the ask I linked in this post and I suggest you take the time to read this. My point is they’ve been shaped and conditioned to think they were remnants of an evil race, who mostly fear for their world reputation and afraid of being sentenced. The warrior cadet batch in particular is condemned to fight wars for Marley till their early to mid twenties due to the shifter lifespan, so all their families could gain honors inside Marley once Paradis is under control. 

That’s such a shitty way to live, especially when some warriors have been enslaved from the beginning (Zeke) or had to watch the only family members they have getting plucked one by one (Reiner). In the meantime, Galliard has to live without his (twin) brother by his side, Bertolt died in the most gruesome way, when he preferred to stay friends with others and Annie is trapped in a crystal, never having a chance to see her father back. I’m not sure where Pieck goes in that or what Marcel wanted in the end, but dying for Reiner against Ymir’s titan looks like a rushed way for probably an optimistic young boy. The cadet batch is young enough to not face that and neither Reiner or Zeke are very happy about Colt, Gabi or Falco inheriting what’s akin to a life of sins. 


Also when you say “so many people”, what people are you talking about exactly? The proportion from @momtaku‘s poll?

Fandom’s favorite faction - SnK 93 poll results [Source]

Looks like it’s pretty minor to me compared to the vast majority who likes the 104th (Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Jean, etc…). Thing is, many people who feel sorry for them don’t have them as favorites, while in my case, and probably the others’ who ticked “Warriors”, we had them in our top list for months, years even. It’s really easy to say they had shitty lives, but the moment they harm their faves they’re suddenly the worst unsympathetic pieces of shit ever. Even Ymir who was the Titan Mary of the story got shit because it turns out she didn’t have any super secret plan to help the SL.

Also, many people who are sympathetic to their fate still hope they “open their eyes” and side with Paradis, because again, they’d help their faves. They love their betrayal scenario so badly they even forget why would push Reiner to side with people who killed Bertolt and held Annie captive, or why Annie would suddenly cooperate with the SL of her own will when she crystallized herself because she had to keep it quiet.

Thing is, warriors are so underappreciated only a fraction of the fandom takes the time to fully read the last three chapters, because we’re out of focus from Paradis. And even then, last chapter only generated reactions from them because of Eren and Armin sinking ships and the Ackerman clan being a failed product of titan science. Oh yeah and the biggest noise coming from Ymir’s confirmed death. And these two scenes only had half a page each while generating more noise than meeting Pieck and Galliard (and learning where Reiner’s “soldier”-self came from), Reiner being the cadets’ favorite babysitter or Falco wanting to compete for the Armor (see: @momtaku‘s recent poll).  

So no, you’re not really missing anything. Though the tables are slowly turning because focus is on them and let’s be frank, I’m not in an hurry to return to Paradis yet.

“Honesty is a bad habit of mine”: Jean’s Honesty in Attack on Titan, Part 1

So a partial draft of this has been sitting in my documents for a few weeks now, but today feels like a relatively timely moment to post it because of two things that have happened recently: Jean’s character song “Rusty Honesty” has been released and—as @imperfecteclipse informed me!— last Sunday was apparently national honesty day! So let’s talk about Jean’s most defining trait!

Jean’s attempt to persuade Armin and Reiner to assist him in stalling the Female Titan, Chapter 23.

In an interview published with the first volume of Attack on Titan in English, Isayama states that Jean is his favorite character in the series because, “Jean comes right out and says what he’s thinking, even if it’s something you normally couldn’t say. That’s what I like about him.” However, many characters within the manga don’t find Jean’s forthrightness quite as endearing. Shadis, for instance, compares Jean’s personality to “a drawn sword, which tends to create conflict” (chapter 18) and Jean himself calls honesty his “bad habit” (chapter 15). It’s a personality trait—or perhaps we should say personality commitment—with consequences, often putting him at odds with others because his observations make them uncomfortable.

What I find fascinating about Attack on Titan is that Jean is never, at any point of the narrative, asked to totally give up this “bad habit”: instead, his honesty—which often takes the form of dissent—is presented as a potential asset, particularly to his development as a future leader within the Corps. In the early chapters, his honesty gives way to cynical defeatism and apathy, but over time he develops it into a tool of productive critique. He never quite assimilates comfortably into the Survey Corps, working instead to keep them on their toes. He reminds both the Survey Corps and the reader of the stakes involved in fighting the titans, wondering what it means to achieve “the greater good” at such high costs.  

It’s a trait that, when used to actively question the world order rather than just passively observe it, makes Jean dangerous. And I’ve decided to talk about it in two parts, because pulling it apart and looking at in depth has proven to be quite an undertaking, haha. This part will focus on Jean’s honesty in the early narrative (and what he means when he terms himself an honest man) and part two will explore how it assists his development as a leader up through the Return to Shiganshina arc.

As is the case with pretty much all of my Jean metas, this reading of his role in the series is entirely dependent on the manga. As I have argued here, the anime’s characterization of Jean is quite different, which significantly alters his role in the narrative.

More under the cut!

anonymous asked:

4,7,8,10,13,29,32,31,14,20,27,28 Kentin and Armin uwu

(Sorry for lack of posts recently, I’m dealing with some pretty screwed up drama right now and I’ve been in such a bad mood the past four days omg. Anyway, I added a few numbers for Kentin because some other anons requested a few numbers that weren’t listed so why not kill two birds with one stone right?)

Kentin

2: If they like reading, and if so their fave book

He doesn’t read often because it’s hard for him to find a book that he really likes. But he does have a favorite, and that would be Gregor the Overlander, the main character is inspiring to him. (guys seriously read the book it’s so amazing omg it’s got like 5 parts and I cried it’s by Suzanne Collins so if you liked the Hunger Games you’ll love this even more in my opinion)

4: Their favorite way to waste time

Kentin likes to either work out or bake. If he has absolutely nothing to do he goes for a run, and if that’s not possible he likes to bake cookies, brownies, cake, etc. He’s also fairly good at decorating cakes!

5: Their favorite type of music

He likes soft music like this, and sometimes he’ll am to the occasional pop song.

7: Their happiest memory

His favorite memory is from military school, he made a really good friend while he was there and they bonded like no other. They kept each other going through all of it and they were there for each other when no one else was. This is his happiest because he finally made a friend that he didn’t feel like was only there because they pitied him or anything.

8: Their most embarrassing moment

In the game it’s mentioned that he got bullied before, so back in middle school or something he got his pants pulled down in front of everybody by this jerk that was constantly pestering him. He’s still planning his revenge.

10: Their best childhood memory

When he was little his dad used to carry him around on his shoulders all the time and run around the house. His dad would also let him put on his military clothes, and he would teach him some cool fighting moves.

13: Their biggest regret

His biggest regret is letting other people take advantage of him and taking what others say too seriously. He still has problems with this but it was really bad before and he just wants to let people know they can just run him over anymore

14. Their biggest fear

The boy is afraid of heights y’all.

16. Their calming techniques

When he’s really nervous about something he likes to isolate himself from everyone else and sit down, taking really deep breaths. He counts to 3 in between every intake. When he’s really pissed off this doesn’t work well so he goes to a gym and finds a punching bag, or he goes for a really long run.

17. How they cope with nightmares

He doesn’t really do anything to make himself feel better, he just kind of lays there and stares at the ceiling until sleep takes over again but if it was that bad then if he can he might just go for a walk, even though it’s like 3 AM

20. If they collect things, if so what

I don’t see Kentin being a collector of anything but if he did he might have been one of those kids that try to collect all the boy scout badges (he was in boy scouts you can’t tell me otherwise)

27. How they sleep

He’s a very touchy person if that makes sense, so he needs to be holding on to something. If you’re with him then he likes to hold you in his arms and spoon, or lay his head on your chest like he’s a little kid. If he’s alone he has a pillow next to him and holds onto that with one arm, while his legs are sprawled out.

28. How they hug

His hugs a very warm and affectionate, no matter who you are. He doesn’t just hug anyone so when he does, it’s the nicest, cuddliest hug ever. He wraps you up in his arms and hold you tight, with his chin at the top of your head. If you’re just a friend, he does the same thing but he doesn’t do the chin thing and he doesn’t hug you as tightly.

29. How they express love

Did this in a previous post~ here.

31: If they found out they only had one day to live

He would spend it with Candy, and his family. And just try his best to keep them in high spirits. Later he’d like make an announcement to anyone who bullied him and tell them off like he’s always wanted to do, letting them know that he’s better than all of them. (I really dislike this number it’s so hard to come up with things for it omg)

32. If they were faced with a genie what they’d use their three wishes for and why

Wish 1. To become more confident in himself, because he hates how insecure he is

Wish 2. To be successful, all he wants to do is live a happy and stable life, and he wants his dad to be proud of him no matter what he chooses to become.

Wish 3. The formula for Nutella, he loves that stuff man.

(I just don’t see him wishing for materialistic things tbh)

Armin

4. Their favourite way to waste time

If he’s not playing video games of course, he really finds joy in taking those stupid Quotev quizzes, like “Which character are you?” and he likes making quizzes for the games he plays.

7. Happiest memory

You know what I have no freaking idea man…. I would say when he was adopted but we don’t even know the full story behind that sooo. And that’s also pretty basic… I’ll edit this part later if I think of something

8. Most embarrassing moment

Okay you know what, I didn’t intend for this to be NSFW so sorry if this isn’t what you wanted to read but I whole-heartedly believe that he has been caught more than once jacking it off to some porn site by his mother or brother. His dad just knows to knock from now on but the other two don’t listen.

10. Their best childhood memory

When he was younger he and his brother used to pull pranks on people and switch places. I headcanon Alexy has naturally black hair so this was before he decided dye it, and no one really paid attention to their eye color until their mom found out what they were doing and called them out on their bullshit.

13. Their biggest regret

Hmm, well I don’t really know honestly. Maybe he regrets not going out as much as he should have. They never really spoke about their school before they arrived to Sweet Amoris (or did they, I can’t remember) so maybe he didn’t really have a lot of close friends since he’s like, low-key an introvert? So he just wishes he go out there more I guess.

14. Biggest fear

Low-key afraid of bugs but would never admit it. Also really afraid of losing his twin, I feel like they had separation anxiety when they were younger (me and my younger sis had that too omfg I used to cry whenever she wasn’t with me)

20. If they collect things, if so what?

He likes to collect figurines of characters for his games and shows. He’s probably a walking dead fan so he has all the figures of almost every character.

27. How they sleep

He’s always sprawled out all over his bed, lying on his stomach but occasionally his back. Don’t expect him to cuddle with you all night because he gets extremely hot while he’s sleeping so the most he’ll do is putting his leg on top of yours. He also cannot sleep without a blanket, so if it’s hot he’s the “one leg out” kind of guy.

28. How they hug

His hugs are very tight and welcoming, they make you feel comfortable because it’s just so nice. He kind of lifts you off your feet a little bit just because. They are also unexpected sometimes, like he’ll just run up on you screaming your name and tackle you with a bear hug

29. did this already for all guys~

31.If they only had one day to live how would they spend it?

 He would spend the day with his family and really close friends and wouldn’t complain one bit if they forced him to go outside. He’d actually want to go out somewhere this time, to make them happy. He wants to let them know how much he loves them all. “Alexy, I know you hate my clothes but I’m leaving my wardrobe to you, you’ll make good use out of it.” He’d probably try to drag everyone to a comic con if he could.

32. Genie, what would they wish for and why.

Wish 1. To be a professional game tester, because that’s what he does all day anyway so why not make money off of it?

Wish 2. For his brother to become whatever the heck it is he wants to be, he wants his bro to be happy y’all. 

Wish 3. For all other kids who are currently in foster care or anything to find really amazing parents who love them no matter what, so they can be happy

Today is love your artist day for snk nohate awareness week, so here’s an appreciation post for some of my favorite artists within this fandom!

First of all, @lolakasa and @daydream24-7 are a couple of amazingly talented artists who specialize in eremika. Both of them have unique art styles, and I really love all of their content. @ermioney  is another one of my favorite artists. I especially love the way they draw Armin! @toruq has some really cool drawings, you should definitely go check her out if you’re a fan of levihan. @lampurple is another favorite of mine (check her out on @lampurpleart), and I think she’s currently taking commissions! (Please correct me if I’m wrong on that!) @redcoaster has a lot of awesome art, including some of the rogue titan because she’s just as thirsty for him and his abs as the rest of us@kaschy is the queen of reibert art (her art blog is @kaschy-art), hers always makes me smile. @moburittobana also has some great art, some of her more recent pieces are adorable drawings of the new warrior kiddos! Also, I’m totally calling out @kyojinofbraveos for having amazing drawing skills, you really need to show us more of your own art! Her blog is also a great place to go if you want to find more fanart, she makes it her mission to reblog all of the best!

So to all of the lovely people I mentioned above, and to any other talented artists that I failed to mention, thank you so much for all of your contributions to the snk fandom! I know you’ve all put in so much time, effort, and practice to reach this level of artistic quality, and thanks to your passion for snk the rest of us have more beautiful content! 

anonymous asked:

can you talk a bit about Castiel?

I can try! I’ll admit, I don’t talk about him too much and he’s technically on the lower end of favorites (though, I do like him a lot–I really do like all the boys, honestly even if I have my favorite). 

So something about Castiel… I’m been re-reading the Manga recently for reasons so I’ll talk about stuff regarding this: 

I’m going to go into spoilers a bit with the first book, but this line hit me really hard. I was getting frustrated with how… rude Castiel was to Lynn about her birthday, telling her they’re as stupid as weddings, why should he even care, they’re not even friends, and he drives it down until he gets jealous/annoyed that she already spoke to the other boys about it and now he “has to deal with her”.

And Castiel definitely has a rough shell, I don’t think anyone can deny that, but I feel a large part of it is that he has a fear of those he cares about leaving him.

His parents left him for their job. He’s been alone for who knows how long now.

Deborah left him for her career (and as he learns later, purposely cut him out of it).

He nearly lost Lysander when he got hit with the car–his illustration is literally Candy holding him back when he wanted to run towards him. 

Even though he’s a bit of a loner, I don’t think he truly likes being alone, but he keeps that shell up because he doesn’t want to be hurt again. He has Demon, but I think he appreciates his friends a lot despite how he acts. And just… another reason I kind of wish he and Nathaniel talked about what Deborah did back then because I feel it’s more kept due to Nathaniel’s pettiness than anything.

Sure, he gets upset with his parents showing up, but I think part of it is when he builds up this wall to prevent getting hurt, he doesn’t want to have to deal with that. Like he doesn’t want to show how he feels that they’re gone or misses them or how it effects him. Whether it’s more his own weakness, not wanting them to feel they have to stay/not do what they are passionate about, or some combination you can probably debate yourself. 

But if there’s one thing I can say about Castiel, it’s that he really does have a good heart if you can get past his… general roughness with how he speaks and acts. How much he tried to apologize in Episode 17 too says plenty and I really do think there’s a lot more to him than a “scary bully” or anything. 

Finally, some brief angst: We know Castiel cares deep down, he helped Amber with her doll and was likely quite nice, so what specifically changed? Part of me wonders if he initially acted out hoping it’d bring his parents home when they first started working a lot or he first got emancipated. 

Clearly it didn’t work and he kept it with the shell he built up, but I really wonder if that’s what caused it in the first place. His parents just want him to be happy, but they don’t seem to realize his it effected him. 

At least he has Demon. 

anonymous asked:

favorite Armin facial expression?

I’m assuming you mean from the game so!:

I really… just love his smile… a lot… 

(and in the Manga for good measure:

again… just love his smile so uh)

deerdryad  asked:

So I've been watching people play The Isle recently, and it's made me curious, what type of dinosaurs would the 104th, Veterans, and Zeke be? (Like, would Armin be a plesiosaur? Would anyone be a gallimimus? Would Mikasas' desire to fight a sauropod translate to her being a sauropod, or would she be a rex because she's just that awesome?) And what is your favorite dinosaur?

Sorry, that game totally went past me

anonymous asked:

can we just let it sink in that eren killed for mikasa, but he DIED for armin...

I just saw this buried in my ask so I’m very sorry for the lateness anon.

Eren’s sacrificing himself for Armin is still one of my favorite moment, anon. But it’s not so much the fact that he died for Armin that I focus on with these two. Honestly, Armin and Mikasa are both important to Eren and I’m sure he would sacrifice himself to save them both.

It’s the way Isayama made the whole thing play out and established not only Armin and  Eren’s importance to each other but also the importance of the dream they shared, for Eren especially. I mean the way everything happened and Eren and Armin’s reactions to something happening with the other the whole time through?

How we saw Eren worrying over Armin and paying attention to his state of mind. How he tried to be reassuring in his own way. How Armin was panicking but was able to calm down some thanks to Eren words and actions.

How Armin became so paralyzed after he saw Eren lose a leg and fall that he could no longer stand up and fell to his knees. How he couldn’t move from that position and saw the massacre and the titan closing in on him.

How Eren was legit bleeding and seemed unconscious yet focused after he heard Armin’s scream. There’s just something about the way he tried to get up the moment he heard that scream, whereas we never saw anything for his other teammates. It’s almost like he regained consciousness for Armin.

How in his “last moments”, while he’s fighting to keep the titan mouth opened, Eren reminded Armin again that he was the reason he wanted to see the world outside. How he told Armin he wouldn’t die because he had to see it.

How even while in the titan stomach Eren thinks about the titans are taking everything from him. How at that moment we see Armin still in danger. How he thinks about his life and dream and we see his mom get eaten, his house destroyed again and Armin animatedly talking about the dream.
How Armin completely blacks out after Eren is swallowed, to the point where he completely misses the fact that Eren becomes a titan right in front of him and saves him a second time.

Let me stop here before this becomes another extra long post. See the above is what I can’t get over with when it comes to Eren “dying” for Armin. Eren’s sacrifice was major and important. But more than that for me, it was the emphasis put on what Armin and Eren means to each other from that moment on. Back then we saw through no uncertain terms that Armin meant the world to Eren, literally. Same for Armin towards Eren.

And it doesn’t help that when we finally revisit Eren’s sacrifice for Armin in recent chapters, Eren basically tells Armin that he saved him because he’s important to him. Because looking in his dreaming eyes made him realize what freedom is. That thinking about that always fills him with a certain strength.

That’s literally a big part of what makes me so weak with Eren and Armin in Trost, anon. Every single time.

my favorite has to be armin. he really inspires me. i've never really been strong, especially recently when i started getting really sick, but i've always been smart. he's helped me realize mental strength is important too, and not only is it helping in school, but also in life. i'm not afraid of who i am anymore. so thanks mama for making armin! ☺️ ps he has suffered enough please don't kill him i'm begging

‘ i’m not afraid of who i am anymore ‘ is probably the most beautiful sentence I ever had in my inbox. Thank you! 

Requiem for Humanity’s Greatest Strategist and Most Intelligent, Armin Arlert

I remember when I first got into Attack on Titan. The dub was coming out on Toonami. I was reluctant to watch it because I thought it was overhyped, but I’d watched it anyway. 

I do not regret my choice.

I got into a massive, weeaboo-like AoT phase. It had taken me no more than three or four days to catch up to the manga. I spent so much time reading fanfiction. AoT parodies are life, and I’ve hundreds of AoT pictures on my tablet. The majority of my pictures consist of are related to one cinnamon roll: Armin Arlert.

Armin Arlert was my legitimate life. I loved him so fucking much, and I literally could not stop talking about him. Armin was the sweetest cinnamon roll. He was bae. My earlier Tumblr days had posts pertaining to him and just him. That is how much I cared about him. Armin isn’t the first fictional character that has had a large impact on me - Inuyasha is and still remains the first - but Armin was the first one to come to a close second. I defended his character, appreciated his intelligence, and personally referred to him as Humanity’s Most Intelligent, a title associated with Hange. I always believed that Armin wasn’t weak, that he wasn’t useless. I loved every moment of his character development.

Eventually, I got out of my Attack on Titan phase, started obsessing over things like Seraph of the End, One Punch Man, etc. I still kept up with AoT though because I still enjoyed it and Armin had cemented himself as a dear and favorite character. I experienced all the twists and turns this manga had to offer. Even recently I worried about Hange and I’m still concerned for Erwin.

But today, Chapter 82 happened.

I read it, waiting to see if Reiner and Bertolt finally get their comeuppance, hoping for updates on Hange, Levi, and Erwin. Instead, what I get, what I fucking get, is one of the cruelest things to happen to an innocent character.

I could not fucking believe. I struggled to hold tears back as I read Armin’s last wish for Eren to get to the ocean. I could barely look at the panels. I was distraught and I still am. Various emotions are coursing through my veins, but they mostly consist of anger, shock, and extreme grief. I still refuse to believe what I read.

After all, no one expected Armin Arlert to die.

I honestly hope that he’s alive, that he experiences plot armor like Hange did. We’ve already lost Marco; we can’t lose him. Levi will save him with the serum, Armin will live, justice will happen, and he and Eren will experience the grandeur that is the ocean. 

But alas, this tale is dark, full of realism and tragedy. All types of people die, even the ones that don’t deserve it. That is life, sadly.

So I type this with tears in my eyes. If he is truly dead, then we all need to look back upon Armin with fond memories. We will never forget him. His death will never be in vain. And if he is truly alive, like I want him to be, then we all shall rejoice.

I was searching for the stripper au but couldnt find it, any help? Btw awesome art *^* im in love with ye

So the stripper au is just pretty much… I dunno, I know there are fics that exist out there, but I pretty much just wanted to draw everyone as pole dancers and that’s how it happened for me. 

Here’s the first post with Mikasa, Armin, Marco, Jean, Levi and Erwin

And then I jokingly drew Connie, but then more recently gave him a proper stripper piece XD

Sasha

Eren

Reiner

uh yeah I think that’s it. Reiner is pretty close to my favorite (suspenderssss), probably tied with Mikasa… and maybe Connie now XD I love Armin and his song though…
