kids in the battlefield

Thoughts & Predictions: Chap 91

Ahh this chapter. I can’t even lie, after reading it all the way through; I absolutely love it. There is SO much to build off of here and so many directions Isayama could take this in but, knowing how this story is and seeing the subtle (not really) drops of foreshadowing in this chapter has me super excited. This makes for an interesting read because I’m 90% sure these fresh-faced kiddos are in for a very rude awakening when they see the reality of the world they live in.

DISCLAIMER: This is my personal opinion. In no way am I stating what I say here is canon or completely accurate. if you disagree with my opinion, that’s perfectly fine! Everyone has a different point of view, but if you are going to send me messages trying to argue point of views with me or send me hate messages, do me a favor and please just don’t even bother. 


This is one of my favorite questions asked in the series because it perfectly sums up a lot of the picture Isayama is trying to portray in this universe. Where do you draw the line between someone who still retains a glimmer of humanity, and a monster? 

  • Man-eating titans who were once human. 
  • Human’s who can shift into man-eating titans. 
  • Human’s who sacrifice their morals for the sake of victory. 
  • Humans who sacrifice their morals for the sake of power. 
  • Humans who sacrifice humans all to achieve a goal. 

Where in all of this does humanity as a whole fall? Now that we see the state of the world outside of the walls, I cannot help but to think back to this conversation between Eren and Pixis here from chapter 12:

Eren, our “jump-the-gun” protag, calls out all of humanity right there. He see’s a bigger picture and graps it. Not to its full extent just yet but, he’s close.

So, what now? It’s been four years since this scene. The titans have been exterminated, the secret of the walls has been revealed, and so has their true enemy; other humans. So, what will they do? Will they kill everyone who gets in their way or will they finally unite? And if they do… How will that happen? 

Keep in mind that I am not just referring to the walled Eldians here. I’m talking about the ones across the sea as well. 

Will the Eldian people as a whole unite together to take down Marley and finally gain true freedom? Or will they kill each other because they stand at opposite ends of the same goal? 

I think there are TWO reasons Isayama jumped over to this group on the mainland so suddenly. Reason number one being to reveal this big guy right here:

FINALLY WE SEE THE NINTH TITAN! The Jaws Titan. I have no idea what he can do but, I am still super excited that we FINALLY know what he looks like. Let’s all be real, he looks badass. Plus, his role is bound to be an important one.

I believe the second reason Isayama hopped over to the mainland was to make us see the struggle of the Eldian people across the sea just so we would ask ourselves this question: 

Who actually is the “true enemy”

Is it Marley because of how they treat the Eldian people? Is it the rest of the world for waging war against Marley? Is it the mainland Eldian people who fight for Marley? Is it the Eldians of Paradis Island who fight against them and are called demons? 

Truthfully, I don’t think there is a correct answer here even though I’m sure we can all agree that the Marlian government is now the biggest issue. Still though, the lack of balance in this situation makes it all the more difficult to decide which side is right and which one is wrong.

On one hand, we see Eren and his group questioning whether or not killing other people will actually free them. We’ve seen Eren struggle to kill Annie which in turn gave her an out. We see Eren keep an important truth to himself in order to protect Historia’s life. We see Armin struggle with accepting that he shot and killed someone. We see Jean struggle time and time again with killing throughtout the entire series. We see Jean, Sasha, and Connie cry when they think they’ve killed Reiner. But at the same time, we also see what happened to the people of Stohess. We see the lives Erwin sacrificed. The people Levi has tortured or killed. We see what happened with Bertoldt. Killing one to save another and so on. We have SEEN the struggle of those in the walls and how hard it has been to retain even a semblance of humanity in their hearts. 

Then we see these new kids in the middle of a body strung battlefield discussing who’s going to win the opportunity to eat one of their own people and become a warrior. We see them calm and collected on the front lines. We see kids who are more than willing to take human life and who see no qualms in death. These are kids who are outright cannon fodder and they are, for the most part, completely chill about it. These are kids who have obviously also struggled but, in an entirely different way. To them, humans are evil if they are different. They haven’t lived through the struggle of Titans roaming their lands. They have NO IDEA what their distant people have suffered, and they have been brainwashed to believe that people who share the same blood as them deserve that fate. 

They believe they are the better Eldians. That they are the good ones. 

The only remaining people left in this story who could tie such vastly different thinking poeple together and give them a common ground to stand on are Zeke, Reiner, and Annie. 

I don’t see it being Zeke tbh but, I truly believe that ONE of the original titan trio will need to survive in order to make this happen and to also tell their full story, and I (personally) think that person will end up being Annie. It is really hard for me to see Reiner making it back to Paradis Island for a number of reasons. The main one being that the Marlian government is already trying to basically Hunger Games his power off. Annie though, she is already on the island. Still in her crystal and most likely still alive. Hence why she is being guarded underground. Those in the walls still believe her to be a threat and if she is still alive, being in the crystal probably prolonged her life with the titan ability. 

She sympathized with those in the walls. She did not want to carry out the mission in full and that was made very clear quite a few chapters ago. If there is one person from the mainland who can shine light on the entire situation for both ends of the Eldian people as a whole; it will most likely be her. 

However, I am not ruling Reiner out juuuuuuuuust yet. He does have respect for some of those in the walls and if there is one person who can help him get back to the Island in order to escape the Marlian government. It’s Zeke. 

Not only does Zeke have his own reason to escape since they are also trying to tranfer his power to someone else; but he also has a reason to return to the island beyond saving his own life. 

Saving Eren’s (or so he believes). 

I doubt highly that Zeke would leave Reiner to be eaten considering he’d probably need Reiner’s help in escaping. Not to mention that Zeke has already saved Reiner once before. 

What would have been the point of this scene right here if Isayama just planned to have the both of them easily killed off?

Let me go ahead and throw this out there. I DO NOT SEE ZEKE DYING ANYTIME SOON. Not just because of the unfinished plot points shown above but, also because of this extremely important and unfinished plot point too:

There is no way Isayama will just leave this as unfinished business, which brings me back to the kiddos in the trench in chapter 91. 

It’s obvious that the Marley government cannot continue to opporate as it does. It’s also obvious that these kids have seen war and have faced cruelty. But, they don’t know what it’s like to face titans. They probably have no idea what it means to be a warrior because If they did, I doubt they’d be so eagery hashing it out in the middle of a battlefield to gain said abilites. Cutting your life down to 13 years all for the sake of commiting mass genocide for a government that hates you and your people regardless of which land you stand on.

I’m sure that at this point, Reiner, who has lived on both sides, has asked himself what exactly he fought for and has wondered which side was right. Especially when I look back and wonder if the Marlian government ever informed their warriors that they’d only have 13 years left to live after gaining their power. Was it worth it to Reiner? To fight and kill just to be fed off to someone else once he became too weak? 

Was Bertoldt’s death really so cruel when he would have had to face the exact same fate at the hand of the government he faught and killed for once he returned to the home he so desperately missed?   

This doesn’t look like the face of a man who would say “yes”…

Ignorant, hopeful kids that are fighting to become monster’s in order to gain freedom stand on one side of the sea, and newly grown adults that are struggling to remain hopeful and that are fighting to retain their humanity in order to gain freedom stand on the other side. 

So where do you find some middleground?

The only three that remain and can stand in the middle are Zeke, Reiner, and Annie (maybe Armin if he has Bertl’s memories). Humans that can turn into man-eating titans that have seen what it is like on both ends of the spectrum. Beings that are both human’s and monsters. Reiner and Annie have lived it while Zeke is still ignorant to life in the walls. However, I do no see Zeke dying as I stated before.

So, will one of the Marlian warriors help bring human’s of the same origin together to change the world they live in? Will they come together against the common enemy of the Marley government? Or will they be doomed and continue to repeat history and fight and kill each other due to ignorance and misplaced hate?  

I have no idea but, I am hopeful for the Eldian people as a whole. They all want to be free from the prisons that hold them. Whether it be the districts on the mainland, or the Walls on the island. They all just want to fly and the only way they’ll truly be able to achieve that is if they all unite. 

How do you destroy a monster without becoming one?

By keeping your heart and mind open, even in the wages of war. If you want to fly like a bird, you have to be willing to see beyond the cage that holds you and share the sky with others who only wish to spread their wings just like you. 

Ok, sharing a fun story from work since I’m always complaining:

This year, we had a kid-friendly battle reenactment. All elementary school-aged kids with wooden guns. They came wearing costumes. It was very violent and very adorable. 

I was tasked with helping out our group of tiny British soldiers (going over a Very Simplified Manual of Arms, how to march, etc) and part of that was talking about why are we fighting these Americans anyway? After discussing how angry they should be, the group spontaneously begins to chant “Kill the mili-tia! Kill the mili-tia!” I told them this was the proper spirit and all but they could not yell this at the other kids on the battlefield, as it was historically inaccurate (and rude). They might have had music, but probably they were just trying to stay silent. We did not have any fifes and drums so I told them to use their imagination.

One of the kids at the front of the line says “I’ll be your music then, follow me! Bum bum bum bum badUM”. 

Twenty children proceeded to march in perfect lockstep onto the battlefield singing the Imperial March.

Things That Are Kinda Canon but Not Really
  • Sasuke is blind af and secretly needs glasses
  • Itachi and Shisui were in love
  • Danzo ordered Itachi not to destroy anyone’s eyes when he took down the Uchiha clan so he could have them for his collection
  • White Zetsu cut Obito’s hair to look like his
  • The Nara, Akimichi and Yamanaka clans’ main branch families are forbidden from interbreeding because that would mess up InoShikaCho
  • Itachi and Shisui were each other’s first kiss
  • Every single member of the Akatsuki had to delicately paint their finger nails to make sure they don’t get polish on the side and have to redo it
  • Sasuke and Sakura do each other’s hair
  • Naruto definitly rubbed it in Sasuke’s face when he got taller than him
  • Kakashi started wearing his mask because he was embarrassed about his mole but now it’s just habit
  • Tobirama gets his looks from his mama
  • Hashirama decided to learn medical ninjutsu because he was tired of seeing his fellow shinobi die on the battlefield and he just wanted to be able to do something about it
  • Obito probably wasn’t the first Uchiha kid Madara saved from the battlefield, he was probably just the first to survive
  • Madara was literally a genius, not just in battle strategy but also in science
  • Kabuto was the one who went shopping for the food and he probably cooked too
  • Naruto took his mother’s last name because she was the one who was still alive when Lord Third came and got him
Aphrodite kids

Some have charmspeak. Some can change their features just by thinking about it. They’re all super beautiful but none are dulled down to the goddesses look, they all have more of their mortal parents features. Their bathroom is so well organized like damn guys. They’re always coming up with ways to make beauty products useful on the battlefield

medusaes  asked:

top 5 naruto/gaara interactions

1) godtier is gaara using his sand to lift narutos hand to shake his own like im so emotional

2) naruto defending gaaras corpse and yelling at everyone for treating gaara poorly like holy shit

3) gaara yelling at naruto to get off the battlefield as if he was a shitty kid not following his orders ejdjdjfj

4) when naruto kicked his fucking ass lmfaooo

5) when gaara was ready to kill sasuke if it meant that he could unburden naruto from having to do it himself aaaahhhhhhh

I will never not be salty about the Bad Batch.

Not because the idea of a strike force of abnormal clones is a bad idea – it’s a brilliant idea! It’s just the way it’s executed that’s bullshit.

We could have had a clone with a massive IQ or something that wasn’t able to grow into an adult, so remained looking like a kid on the battlefield. WE COULD HAVE HAD A FEMALE CLONE. We could have had a deaf clone, a blind clone, a mute clone. We could have had clones with mental and physical disabilities doing badass things anyway. And, as I already mentioned, WE COULD HAVE HAD A CANON. FEMALE. CLONE TROOPER. With the same skills and such as her brothers, except for the fact that she wasn’t identical to the rest of them on the surface, and we all know how the Kaminoans feel about their product matching (though genetics wise? Doesn’t matter what sex she is, she could still be a genetic match to Jango Fett.).

But instead, we get Whitewashed Clone, Hulk ripoff, Solid Snake ripoff, and Rambo ripoff. It’s fucking stupid.

Sometimes on multiplayer games, the win-lose ratio is so randomly correlated, I occasionally wonder if I’m going up against a highly skilled team, or if I’m in a highly skilled team, or that both teams are significantly incompetent but you either end up on the least or most incompetent of the two.

hc for the yamanaka-inuzuka fam because i can:

  • officially they’re part of the yamanaka clan because ino is clan leader and hana is there to become the next clan leader for the inuzuka once tsume steps down.
  • unofficially, they don’t give a shit.
  • each kid gets a puppy, whether they display the inuzuka traits or not. each kid goes through the standard yamanaka mind exercises every single week. no exception.
  • they have a set of twins that are as fast kiba, with the inuzuka trademark fighting style and ino’s telepathic ability. guess how much damage they do every time they get on the battlefield.
  • they have a lot of kids. it’s a big, hectic family. ino, who grows up as a single child in a small clan, basks in the whole chaos. kiba’s just glad nobody kills anybody.
  • dogs. lots of dogs as well. akamaru’s puppies are literally everywhere.

The funniest thing about this is that people are attacking real people because they think you're being too mean to a cartoon character ?? And that comic absolutely shows aang's aggression it is fucking abusive! Anyways I'm on your side and I've been hooked on reading your fics for the past week you're awesome and I love you

even funnier is how they always point to zuko’s possessive behavior in the beach episode as if that somehow makes aang’s behavior okay, but like… the behavior was shown to be bad. he wasn’t rewarded for it. he didn’t get anything for it. he had to learn and change and develop. 

aang…. aang gets to show katara his fire and plant kisses on her after she tells him she doesn’t want a relationship right then and he never learns… and the creators just hand him a prize. good job guys. this is what you support. so proud. 

also if you want all the fucking ridiculous SWEETIE shit in the comics to be canon, then Love Is A Battlefield is also canon. Have at it, kids :)

Screams erupted throughout the vast section of the school and you had to dodge multiple bodies walking directly in your path, firmly ignoring your existence as they scrolled on their phones or obnoxiously rattled off to their friends. You couldn’t help but feel a sigh slip past your lips as you swerved around the bodies and avoided the numerous trash cans. This was something you certainly wouldn’t be missing about high school. A multitude of football jerseys and cheerleader uniforms decorated the room and you eagerly avoided them, victoriously setting your tray down on the table where your friends were eating with a smile.

  You sat down and began to munch on the food while conversing with your fellow art students, the few people in the cafeteria that actually seemed to have manners and not try to stampede into the lunch lines while effectively trampling you. There had always been some strange sort of social ranking in high school, the one thing that refused to change amongst the years and different generations. You liked to compare your grade to a jungle, you had the predators at the top who were the jocks and the stuck up preppy kids. At the bottom there were the innocent herbivores, the art kids (you) and the quiet kids (also you). You see, the predators didn’t give a shit about the herbivores - in fact, they liked to pick on them and make their lives even harder which resulted in you to merely avoid them. The jocks were normally the instigators, the preppy kids normally just acted obnoxious and bratty.

anonymous asked:

I definitely need more of the angsty parents finding their kids dead on the battlefield headcanons bc the ones u already did were so spot on for the parents' characters omg

Since there wasn’t any specific characters requested I will do the remaining neutral characters that I didn’t do (Kaze) as well as the remaining Hoshido men that have canon kids (Saizo/Azama/Hinata/Subaki/Hayato/Kaden). No without further delay, lets angst people.

Kaze would find his little baby girl crumpled on the ground, broken tincture bottle on the ground. It would appear she was attacked while trying to heal an ally who lay next to her. He would gently scoop her into his arms, pushing the bangs from her face with a shaky hand. He would kiss her on the forehead before sadly whispering to her corpse how sorry his was, for her to please forgive her failure of a father. After Midori’s burial Kaze would become cold and reclusive, putting even Saizo’s reputation of a similar sort to shame.

Saizo would find Asugi slumped on the ground, a furious anger rising up within him. He would pick his fallen son up in his arms, and whisper curses. “Damn it boy, you were supposed to live! A Saizo buries his father, not his son!” Saizo would hunt down the bastard who dared point a weapon at his boy, and in his mind death would be too good for him. Asugi would be buried with the full traditional honors of a Saizo, although his name would always be documented as Asugi, just as he would have wanted.

Azama would find Mitama crumpled and lifeless on the ground, face contorted into an eternal grimace of pain. It was inevitable, death was inescapable. Azama knew that. He had accepted it. And yet…why did this image bring such sorrow? He would think about how unfair it was. Mentally damning the gods for robbing his daughter of life so soon. And for the first time for as long as he can remember. Azama opened his eyes, and wept quietly.

Hinata may be rather brash, but in truth he was no fool. He knew quite well the risks of letting Hisame fight, but despite this forethought it was like a blade to the chest to see his boy felled. He would try to steel his emotions, to compose himself as a samurai should. But this would last but a moment, before the memories of his little boy running up to him with open arms and a toothy smile would enter his mind. Memories of embracing Hisame after a sparring session, and hearing the words, “I love you Dad.” It would become too much, and Hinata would weep, silently praying that his son forgive him for not protecting him, for failing as a father once again. Begging him to run to him once again with open arms in the afterlife, just as he did when he was a little boy.

Subaki would be shocked. His daughter was perfect. His daughter would never fall. Yet here Caeldori lay, broken and bloody at the base of the forest. Her Pegasus’ likewise corpse caught within the branches of the canopy that his baby girl had fallen through quite painfully. Subaki would weep silent tears as he tried in vain to clean and fix the dirty and blood-matted mane of hair with a shaky hand as quiet sobs shakes his body. Finally, he wouldn’t be able to hold back his anger and sorrow, and a grief filled wail would ravage the once peaceful forest, birds flying off into the distance like the free flying soul that his daughter once held.

Hayato had never understood why his parents would leave him all alone to die in his stead. But now, staring in shock at the lifeless corpse of his daughter he finally understood, and felt the greatest grief and guilt that it couldn’t have been him instead. For once forgoing the adult persona he fights so hard to keep, he fell to his knees and wept, roaring in rage and sorrow at how unfair it was.

Kaden would find Selkie slain on the ground humanoid form on display, laying next to a shattered beaststone. Having your kits hunted and killed was not uncommon for the Kitsune, but this wasn’t expected. His little Selkie was supposed to be invincible wasn’t she? She always brushed off injuries, why was now any different? One last look of his baby girl on the ground would send Kaden into a feral rage that nobody thought he was capable of.

Renekusu Headcanons

I love them, I just want to post some headcanons. And yes, of course I know what they said about vampires and sexual desires and everything. Just let me ship it, please? (//*///*//)

x Lacus might be the blood-thirsty crazy ass we know but he is the one turned on as fuck when René is soaked in blood on the battlefield. 

x Who am I kidding. For as much as René pretends Lacus is annoying when he loses control and sucks humans dry, he is actually internally screaming.

x Lacus was the first to be turned into a vampire, René is younger. At first, he couldn’t bare with the violet head, bored stiff whenever Lacus tried to befriend him when in the end, he was the one asking to be Lacus exclusive partner. He grown fond of him very quickly after he accepted his new condition and the fact he couldn’t accept too much familiarity from other vampires made him accept all of it when it comes to Lacus.

x Lacus is very touchy-feely but when they are alone, René is the one taking the lead and initiating cuddles.

x Lacus seems to be insane? Then try to touch him and you’ll see René going berserk. He is over possessive towards Lacus. The latter doesn’t complain and purrs when René bites someone’s head off because of pure jealousy. And the bloodier the better. So, even if Lacus thinks only about René and would never have anyone else, he might find it amusing to tease him and make him jealous on point.

x There’s no bottom/top thing between them. It just depends on who’s the more thirsty at the moment, who initiated it… Sometimes they go one way and immediately change after that for round 2.

x Lacus’d rather kill himself than abandon René to humans.

x René’s rather kill everyone than abandon Lacus to humans.

x They sworn to each other that if one of them was captured on the battlefield, they’d go down together.

x They finish each other’s sentences but only when it comes to piss someone else off. Mika, Ferid and humans are the best target.
