Hi! So I read this meta that stated that Lev* had chosen Arm*n because he saw a future in him, unlike Erw*n, who only had one one that, according to this person, Levi didn't entirely agree with. And that he let Erw*n die so he could go as the 'selfless commander', instead of a man who had sacrificied their men for his own goal, while Arm*n had a pure dream that could grown and change for the better, what do you think about this?
Really? Is this still a thing? Does anyone still believe this?
I think it’s crystal clear that Levi chose to save Erwin by not giving him the serum. Levi makes it quite clear that he chooses to free Erwin from hell, from the people who wanted him to be the devil. Levi chooses Erwin in order to let him rest.
In terms of dreams, Levi may not have fully understood Erwin’s dream but he still chose to support him in the pursuit of that dream. I don’t think he had any real investment in Armin’s dream, if his reaction is anything to go by; he looked distinctly underwhelmed when they reached the ocean.
I suspect that for a while after joining the corps for real, Levi was very distrustful of Erwin, like he was waiting for him to take revenge on that one time the pushed him off his horse and tried to kill him.
…and Erwing was aware of this and let him believe that until Levi’s paranoia was too much and he had to stop.
romantically? fuck no. like, i’m serious, get the fuck out of my face if you’re into erwin/armin as an actual pairing.
however, if you want to talk to me about erwin being a fatherly figure to armin? i can talk to you for days. it’s no secret that armin is erwin lite. i mean, damn, they even have the same colored hair and eyes. IS ARMIN ERWIN’S LONG LOST SON? ERWIN DID GO OUTSIDE OF THE WALLS AFTER ALL!!!!
i hate that i just said that.
but anyway. this is one of my favorite dynamics. i absolutely love how erwin respects the little coconut’s mind. you can’t deny that within the immediate story we have been told, armin has had huge influences on the decisions and actions the survey corps executed. and when erwin entrusted him to a squad at shinganshina, it was clear that he was trying to prove to the veterans and armin that he had the capability to survive and follow in his footsteps some day.
and armin understand why erwin does the things he does. knows that one needs to sacrifice their own humanity to save it. he even has the trademark creep smile™.
i mean… honestly… armin probably is his son. jfc.
and what the fuck are you on about erwin/eren. that can’t be real. i reject that. please set it on fire and throw it into an active volcano.
Funny that they come and tell you to stop 'hating' on Hanj* when you've never done any of the sort and when some of them crazy ass shippers were literally celebrating when Erw*n died because he would get out of their way...I'm tired of them harassing some of the blogs I follow (even artists) and of some of them even claiming things such as that they were sent death threats/Eruri porn against their will just because they didn't ship it
Idk about other people but I keep thinking one day they’ll learn that they aren’t going to get anywhere with trying to troll me and that they’ll stop messaging me but I guess they like the equivalent of flinging themselves into a brick wall repeatedly, idk
