Here are a few fics in each category… I know there are more of them if you wish.
Summary: Maybe it was written in the stars that these two meet. On Eren Jaeger’s twenty-first birthday, he met the man who’d change his life forever. This man, a thirty year old salaries man, who has nothing else besides his job, became the only thing that mattered in Eren’s life. God could take his eyes, ears, his limbs, but with this man named Levi, he felt invincible.
After loosing so many thing in his life, Eren was finally able to gain the one thing he never thought he needed, love.
Watashi no Yami - My Darkness
Summary: At first, Eren did not know or understand why someone wanted to help him. He had been small, and lost, and helpless. Details that he could barely recall, lost in the recess of his childhood. But his Teacher had been the one to rescue him from the darkness. If only, just to bring an illusion of light.
Don’t Let The Light (Fade From Your Eyes)
Summary: ”This isn’t your fault.” He growled, staring into Eren’s eyes. “None of this is your fucking fault and it’s going to take time to adjust; so stop being so depressing and let me fucking help you Eren.”
Look At The Stars, Look How They Shine For You…
Summary: Levi is a musician who performs at a small hole-in-the-wall café in the town of Shiganshina every Friday night. Eren is a shy boy who hates the color of his eyes and the condition of his ears but loves going to see Levi perform every week. When Levi notices and tries to strike up a conversation with him, he realizes Eren has been deaf all his life.
So why is it that Eren is always so attentive at music shows he can’t even hear?
Speak to Me
Summary: From a tumblr prompt: Eren is mute so in order to communicate he carries a notebook, sticky notes and at least ten pens with him all the time. Eren works at a coffee shop with some of his friends and Levi comes to visit them after there’s a heavy rainstorm outside. Eren is his waiter. After he comes back with his coffee, there’s a note attached to his coffee cup. Eren continues to work and everytime he passes by his table, Levi sticks something against his hand and they continue to communicate. Levi learns he’s mute.
The Way We Live
Summary: People say there a lot to say about about how you were raised. For most people, that’s true. For example, Jean is a rich snob who was spoiled by his parents. Also, Armin would read dictionaries with his grandpa for fun, and now he’s a genius. They also say you always turn into your parents, whether you want to or not. Let’s just say I really hope that’s not true.
Don’t Drown in The Sea (Stay With Me)
Summary: Eren and Levi are two very different mermaids.
Eren, a part of a tropical, shallow-water pod, is naturally curious and can’t understand how deeper dwelling mermaids could stand to spend their lives down where the ocean is cold and dark, fearing the surface. To him, coexisting with the humans comes naturally and is merely another danger of living.
Levi, one such deeper dwelling mermaid, has spent his entire life in deep waters, defending himself against the bigger, more dangerous creatures of the sea in order to stay far away from the surface and the filthy humans that inhabit it. He has no desire to ‘explore’ and views anything human-related with scorn, unlike his pod-mate Hanji.
A series of events due to said pod-mate brings them together and changes their lives forever.
