- Office AU where Eren and Mikasa sit next to each other during tedious board meetings and have thumb wars beneath the table. It’s 7-2, and when Eren loses again he becomes visibly frustrated, prompting Erwin to ask Eren if he has a problem with his proposal. Eren stutters, Jean snorts, and Mikasa breaks up their dispute later.
- Eren and Mikasa going to a carnival as kids. Eren drags her to each booth, trying to win a huge prize as a gift for her. He only wins a small sphere with a mystery prize inside, feeling dejected as he pops the frosted covering off. It’s a small ring (at the time he thinks is genuine) that glitters when you hold it underneath the multicolored lanterns. He wordlessly turns to her and takes her left hand to slide it on her ring finger, both unaware of it’s significance. Mikasa smiles sweetly and doesn’t stop looking at it for the rest of the evening.
- High school dances neither of them wanted to go to, but ultimately enjoyed because the intimate slow dances and cause of how attractive the other looked. They took pictures in the photo booth, those photos eventually turning into crowded and extremely silly group shots. Mikasa has a copy of them all, and both of them laugh every time they find it.
