implied eremika

“You’re doing this for the good of all of us,”

Interesting prompt in which Eren’s Titan-Shifting was hereditary and it was only discovered after Elizabeth shifted into a Titan. Her titan form is nicknamed the “The Frightened Titan” because when she first shifted, she ran away from the legion out of fear instead of attacking them. She continues this trait every shifting, hating to fight.

I agree with you on a lot of points but your opinion about Eren and Mikasa is wrong. Though they met when they were 9, they are still adopted, which means siblings. You aren't the only one I've sent this to, I just need to get this out to the Eren and Mikasa shippers.

Right. Okay. This ask is hilarious and I can’t tell if you’re trolling?? But I’m taking a break from my 15 minute laughing fit to answer. 

First of all…. your dedication to informing Eremika shippers that their ship is incest is, um, admirable. Really. Since you’ve sent this to lots of Eremika shippers you must be really passionate about it. Good for you. 

Next, let’s take a look at some definitions. 

So first, you tell me that my opinion is wrong.

opinion: a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

As you can see, an opinion is not based on fact. An opinion is someone’s view of something, so an opinion cannot be wrong. My opinion is my view, and your opinion is yours. Even if Eremika were blood related, I could ship them if I wanted and my opinion would still not be wrong.

Next, let’s look at the word incest, which is what you’re implying Eremika is. 

incest: sexual relations between people classed as being too closely related to marry each other. The crime of having sexual intercourse with a parent, child, sibling, or grandchild.

Now, Mikasa and Eren are not related by blood. Also, Mikasa wasn’t officially adopted. She was taken in by the Jaegers, but as far as I know there was no formal paperwork making her Eren’s sister. Being cared for by someone does not make it incestual to be in a relationship with them. If I lived with my best friend for a year (or however long) and we fell in love, living with him/her would not make us closely related, and therefore it would be okay for us to be together. 

Also Mikasa, like you said, was nine when she was taken in by the Jaegers. One year later is when the titans attacked Shiganshina. She stayed with the Jaegers for one year. Again, if my parents died when I was nine and my neighbors took me in until I was ten, would it be incestual to eventually date their son years later? OF COURSE NOT. Living with someone does not automatically make you their family. 

Not to mention, EREMIKA IS PRACTICALLY CANON. Both the manga and anime are making it completely obvious that Mikasa and Eren have something greater that friendship/siblinghood. They have a LITERAL red string of fate connecting them, and I’m not completely caught up on the manga, but are we forgetting chapter 50? Are we forgetting every single interaction between them? Have you even SEEN the anime/READ the manga? I doubt it as this is your understanding of their relationship.

In conclusion, I want to let you know that, as noble as your quest is, you don’t need to get this out to the Eremika shippers. I assure you that the Eremika shippers know. We have ALL heard these claims before. It’s literally the number one reason that Eremika haters use to invalidate our ship. And it’s literally, AS I HAVE SHOWN YOU, ridiculous to say that after a year of being taken in by a family, it would be incestual for Mikasa to ever have a relationship with Eren. 

Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to ship Eremika. It’s perfectly okay not to like a ship. But don’t try to invalidate it with bogus claims and tell me I’m wrong for liking two people together. Thank you for the laughs and have a nice day.
