Honestly, I don’t entirely believe that Ymir is dead. I, personally, am a skeptic.
We haven’t been shown her actual death. It’s heavily hinted at, but nothing has been confirmed. Isayama is stringing us along, and I’m having some difficulty believing that Ymir, our tough lesbian queen, just died without a fight. She has a girlfriend to return home to. She hasn’t lived a life with no regrets. She has things to do and places to see. Ymir wouldn’t just succumb like that. It’s against her character.
Also, Annie was devoured at one point, and so was Eren. Twice. Isayama has a way of fucking his readers up, okay? I love/hate the guy because of it. We all are acting like we’ve seen her death and accepted her fate, but I really don’t know. The characters believe it, but they didn’t witness it. They’re relying on the words of a jackass and a letter she wrote before she was supposed to die.
If she turns out to be dead in the end, I will be heartbroken. The way their relationship has been portrayed has been beautiful and… well, normal. They aren’t trying to make it a typically canon gay relationship where it’s just them groping one another and making out all the time. They’ve treated it with actual love and mutual respect of one another. The two are perfectly matched, and they balance one another out.
If Ymir is dead, I’m at least glad that she’s gotten out of this hellhole of a world they all live in.Our goddess deserves better. I’m sure that Krista and Ymir can have the wedding of their dreams in heaven.
