Theatrics? This sounds like you saw Eren's behaviour as something he affected as a kind of performance. I thought it was rather genuine... May I ask why you thought so?

I stand by my use of the word “theatrics”, not because I think he’s insincere, but because Eren’s strong emotional reactions are often accompanied by a dramatic flair. It’s precisely why Hange didn’t coach him before his military trial in chapter 19. They knew he’d deliver by nature of who he is.

Eren would’ve said or done anything to keep Armin alive. I honestly don’t think he believed half of what came out of his mouth. He was grasping at straws, throwing out any argument in hopes that one might stick.  Like if Levi had said “Erwin has six toes”, Eren would’ve responded, “BUT ARMIN HAS SEVEN AND THEY NEED TO BE DIPPED IN THE OCEAAAAN!!!!!”. 

If it had been any other character, I could’ve dismissed Eren’s behavior with a shrug and an eye-roll. But you need to understand that Erwin Smith is my guy and to see his lifetime of extraordinary accomplishments compared to those of Armin Arlert’s made me feel actual revulsion.

As I’ve said before, I don’t hate Eren. It is my opinion that at this moment in the story his behavior was awful, but also very human and understandable (and also very theatrical lol). You are welcome to disagree.

Sometimes I expect to see A+ tumblr content about the people who dress as clowns and terrorize people in the night but I realized that’s local news and nobody else knows about it cause they live in California or wherever, where people don’t dress up as clowns and scare people in the dark.

Breakdown of what’s happened with CCLOWN till now

This will be a breakdown of what has happened in the past 8 months. It will be pretty long but hopefully clear up some stuff for people who keep asking.

  • December 26: Rome told us his real name was Christian
    “I love my fans no matter what ! You guys are honestly everything to me! I am barom. But my original name is christian! Its time for me to share to u guys who i really am! And u guys mean just that much to me Ill be no where and no one without my crowns b salts! I bow 2 before u”
  • January 2: CTC suddenly stopped, no further explanation.
  • January 9: “(…) i know we have been very quiet recently and im too worried for your concerns
    nevertheless we are still really happy with all the support you guys have given us
    and hopefully one day will return to you guys more of what we should have given to you all” - Rome (fancafe)
  • February 24: Last video posted on their official youtube channel. Rome looked really worn out, the other members looked really tired. Everything seemed kinda odd. 
  • February 27: Last fancafe post, written by Maru.
    “Today’s ,,chat,, wasn’t any fun huh…
    I apologize… I am self-reflecting,,
    Recently, the hyungs have been nagging at me a lot more. As a result, I’ve become more timid,,”

  • March 2: Rome shaved off all his hair.
  • April 20: Rome deletes all his instagram pictures. He changed his twitter username from RoME_Cclown to neva4get_urself (he later changed this to Yu_Christian1), and his instagram username from dproyalrome to christianyu_
    “When you’re about to quit, remember why you started” - The text on his new Instagram profile pic
    “they turned me into something that I am not. Never forget what I did for u.” - Rome’s new instagram bio
  • April 21: Rome twitter update
    “I apologize to the fans , I really do! But I tried..I really did! It’s jus too hard now ! Dw y’all” 
  • May 15: “Thx mum for come seeing me :)” - Rome (Instagram, his mom visited him”
  • July 6: “I miss being on stage too…” - Rome (twitter)
  • Rome’s recent replies to comments on instagram:
    “why there’s no crown hashtag? if you already got out of cclown then say it why hold back and make us crowns worried?”
    “because I can’t say nothing. Or else the law will be involved ! Now I wish people would stop asking me. I said there’s a reason for everything and please it’s more harder on us then anyone honestly”

    “So now you’re all about dpr? Please like take cclown out of yedang, find a good company, then you can do whatever you want.”
    “if it was that easy …”

    “its a pity the mixed tapes you worked on…you never release them…”
    “company problems sorry:;;”

  • October 5: C-clown has now disbanded

Now if you have come this far, congratulations, you know whats been happening for the past few months. Please stop bothering Rome about this, please dont bother any of the members actually. 
Do not blame any of this on Rome, as he is trying his best to resolve all of this, and we have no idea what is going on behind the scenes. This seems very serious, and while we can joke around, consider the fact that this can and probably has taken a huge emotional toll on the members.

TL;DR: Rome told us his name was Christian, proceeded to cut his hair and delete all his instagram posts as well as change all his social media usernames. He has apologized to the fans several times, trying to explain as much as he can, but they are in a bad situation right now (so bad that the law will be involved if they speak out about it). Taking this all into consideration, please do not be a fucking shit and post anything about this on their social media, including asking about whats happening, as this might stress them out even more. Thank you.
