General headcanons for Eren?
Dearest anon, my bias (mod spookzz) is not even Eren (it’s Levi–mod Elle loves the shit outta Eren) but I have so many feels about how people characterize him so forgive me if this seems a little rant-y! Hope you still enjoy!
- Eren is not as angry as people think he is. Okay, yes he is angry but that is not all his personality is composed of. Contrary to common thought, Eren is just extremely passionate and that translates to all of his emotions.
- Sometimes even his excitement can come off as anger just because of the pure passion this boy radiates.
- He’s also not stupid. While Eren isn’t conventionally and naturally smart like Armin, he is an extremely hard worker. Eren works for whatever he wants and he typically gets it. He may have to try a little more than someone like Armin but he is incredibly intelligent despite the hurdles he may have to jump over.
- Speaking of Armin, lets talk about how much Eren loves Armin, shall we?
- I don’t care what anyone says or how much hate I might get but it is clearly evident that the most important person in the entire world to Eren is Armin. Yes he loves and cares for Mikasa as well, but the intensity is entirely different and I truly believe Eren would move Heaven and Hell to make sure a single hair was not harmed on Armin’s body. (Totally bros, by the way, there’s no romantic subtext there that I’m hinting at. Eren just really, really cares about his best friend.)
- On the romantic vein, Eren isn’t going to be too interested in pursuing any kind of relationship with anyone until he feels like he’s met his personal goal. He sucks at multitasking when he’s young. He might look and he can certainly recognize when someone is attractive, but committing and being serious? Not gonna happen.
- …Until Eren matures (AKA: grows up and is not a teenager anymore inhibited by naive goals and ambitions) and realizes that he can have focus and drive in multiple areas of his life, including a significant other.
- Overall I just really want to dispel the myths that Eren’s two defining (and only) qualities are that he is angry and not-the-brightest-bulb-in-the-box. He is devoted and loyal and caring and intelligent and protect Eren 2k17, alright? Thanks.
