"one who sings with his tongue on fire" (SNK: Nile Dok, canonverse, backstory gen fic, now w/ Erwin, ~4k)
An Archive of Our Own, a project of the Organization for Transformative Works
Nile isn’t a gambling man.
This fic is for @momtaku, sprung from our shared love of All The Characters, and her love and fearless fight for Nile Dok. ;D I’m sorry if I butchered canon, mom, but I hope you like it. <3 I wrote this while listening to It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding) by Bob Dylan on repeat for like 4+ hours straight. >.>;
Although the masters make the rules
For the wise men and the fools
I got nothing, Ma, to live up to.
For them that must obey authority
That they do not respect in any degree
Who despite their jobs, their destinies
Speak jealously of them that are free
Cultivate their flowers to be
Nothing more than something
They invest in.
—It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding) by Bob Dylan
