featuring the second son, the Yurio x Yuuri kid, Shura <3
(younger fraternal twin, conceived when Yuuri is 27 and Yurio is 19)
The other near-identical twin, he is almost always glued to Yasha’s
side. It’s partly out of competitiveness, but mostly because they both
just want to do everything together. Despite their similar appearances,
he’s the polar opposite of his brother in many ways. He chooses not to
appear friendly to outsiders, but is also completely incapable of hiding
his emotions and is very much an open book. He’s openly hostile and
fiercely jealous of anyone who tries to take away his siblings’
attention, but is extremely affectionate to those he loves.

I do not offer false hopes
By dangling dreams in front
It is nothing but bleak, but that is the way things are
Sometimes the best policy is
To sacrifice precious lives
Defending until the end the path forward
It is the theory of the battlefield
Into the midst of this endless crisis
I will continue to guide the soldiers
Even if I have to abandon everything
I will hold onto the hope of mankind
I have stared myself sick gazing upon
Nevertheless we have not yet perished
For the weak ones who have not paid with sacrifice
What sort of chances of winning are there?
The opponents we must face
Have been a menace for 100 years
Into the midst of this endless crisis
I will dive over and over again
To search for fragments of the truth
That is simply the hope of mankind
Into the midst of this endless crisis
I will continue to lead the soldiers
I will cling to my unwavering faith
Until my days come to an end
It is cruel how the victims have fallen
If I were to atone for these volunteers
One life is not enough, but
Perhaps it would after I have fallen into hell
There is a limit to the decisions I make now but
I believe we can build a tomorrow
There’s no end to the things I’ve thrown away
Even though the things I’ve gotten in return were few
The ability to challenge is not down to zero
There is still a possibility
Monologue English Translation
My father was a teacher. The course of my life was set in the classroom one day where my father was giving a history lesson.
Having doubts about the story of how humanity had been driven into these walls, I asked my father a naive question.
At the time, my father stayed silent, but after we returned home, he answered my question.
There were a great number of inconsistencies in the history book distributed by the monarchy.
Moreover, he had a theory that they were hiding an astounding truth.
I spread my father’s theory around to the neighborhood children.
There was no ill intention, it was an innocent act.
However, on the day in which those details were investigated by Military Police, my father died in an accident in a faraway town he had left for.
Of course, it was only ostensibly an accident. My father was killed at the hands of someone who disapproved of his theory.
Inside the walls, there are a portion of humans who indulge in a privileged life– their desires, as well as a foolish son tempted by innocent questions killed my father.
And then my father’s theory became my truth. Proving my father’s theory became my life’s mission.
Humans become titans, and titans become the walls.
In this world full of harsh paths, answering the question I put forth on that day is the meaning of my life, the reason why I was born.
It is for that reason that I came to lead the Survey Corps, giving commands to numerous subordinates: “Give up your life.”
Almost all humans who join the Survey Corps will die.
On their first expedition outside the walls, the probability that new recruits will become food for the titans is roughly 50 percent.
1 in 2 people will lose their life.
Just in the last 4 years, the Survey Corps lost the majority of its soldiers, and with the fall of Wall Maria, all of the results we had gained crumbled in an instant.
There is no guarantee that Survey Corps soldiers who dedicate their hearts for the sake of humanity will live tomorrow. The current condition is bleak.
However much we try to discuss our hopes and dreams, all of them will be easily crushed.
No matter how much we champion some great cause or become a sacrifice for someone else’s sake, the pay off is almost nothing.
And yet I have been ordering many soldiers to die.
I have been using gamble-like military strategies in order to fight against this cruel world.
A comrade who formerly aspired to join the Survey Corps with me fell in love with a girl from the bar we frequented, and he chose to protect her.
I too thought I could perhaps walk along that same kind of path.
But I chose the path of fighting titans over a girl I loved.
Even a person who chose a peaceful life and could spend their life happily will eventually die.
Hope? Or despair? When this small world is about to change, I am the only one who will choose my own path.
I am the only one who will choose the path I believe in.
Who is the enemy of this world?
The key that will save humanity from this despair is none other than humanity’s determination.
This firm determination is, above all, mankind’s hope.
Therefore, I have no choice but to go see the answers I want to know.
Even though I have lost my arm as well as many of my subordinates while carrying the wings of freedom on my back¹, I must continue to advance beyond the walls by fighting against this cruel world.
If we can manage to reach the basement of Eren Yeager’s home, surely we will be able to seize the key to freeing ourselves from control by titans which has lasted for 100 years.
The answer to the question I brought forth on that day is at a place right before my eyes, a place I can reach my hand toward and grab.
Everything is for the sake of my dream– my very own dream. For that purpose I have guided many soldiers, and have ordered them to die.
As well as every other soldier who has tragically fallen.
My one life is not enough, but eventually I will make up for it. After I have fallen into hell, certainly I will have the privilege to atone.
Certainly, without fail. But now is not the time.
No matter what it takes, I have to be present to witness the moment that the truth about this world becomes clear.
Even if I have to abandon everything.
My conviction is unwavering.
¹ Here the phrase 自由の翼を背負い/jiyū no tsubasa wo seoi (“carrying the wings of freedom on my back”) has a connotation of it being a heavy burden to bear. It looks similar to another phrase in Japanese, 十字架を背負う/jyūjika wo seō, which means “to have a cross to bear” or more figuratively, “to carry a heavy burden”.
perks of being the “shy” kid in class: you hear some REALLY good gossip. and i think the reason for that is because since youre so quiet and all that people will think you are innocent and not listening. oh but im listening. im listening real well. i know how you really feel about your so called best friend. i know you are dumping your boyfriend. i KNOW.
(You could probs relate your sun if you want maybe even your rising)
Aries: they take up your life: being loud, leaving mess on the stairs, creating arguments out of thin air and always filling the void with their drama. Very self-centred but oblivious to it so I’ll let it be. Problems they hav always someone else’s fault. Very loving and cuddly and express passion easily. Never stick to hobbies after announcing that its there biggest passion n cant survive without it. Though, they don’t wait around for things to be handed to them - they are always up to something interesting. Independent.
Taurus: they are great to spill your words upon and never flinch when u say something deep or shocking so it makes u chill af cause they are…Most of the time…they can get angered when things aren’t as it should as they are very stubborn. don’t like people who aren’t committed to friendship or plans/dreams and dont like people who dont give their stuff back. Seemed to hav cows eyes: very deep n dreamy and long eyelashes -often brown eyes that i know of or watery blue eyes. lov food or other luxuries.
Gemini: childlike, like everything light hearted and humorous. there has to always be words to fill up the quiet spaces otherwise they start to get agitated. Dont like boring people and will blatantly walk off or something. Nervouusss people. Tapping all the time. When they’re in a goood mood they’re goofy but can become detached and cold and become a bit of a smart arse. Like knowing their shit.
Cancer: homely people. Warm and loving to fault as they are always let down by others who do not give the same warmth and pure emotions back. I think they could probably guilt trip u many times. emotions are not hidden which is good and bad because shots are firedddd and their words filled venom when there really cheesed off. Like lots of nice things. also love cute fluffy animals. Love their family to be always near - protective can become smothering. Talk about the ‘good old days’ 24/7.
Leo: why are you so posey and dramatic? They like to tell a tall tale - love to add bits to the truth to make it more exciting - which is actually interesting to hear tbh so good job :) they love to be centre of attention obvs. Also hold their heads high and always seem taller than actually are. Full of exuberance. & they often believe in their abilities so they achieve good grades and r smarttt!
Virgo: lovs when people do little silly things for them because they like when people are as detail orientated as them. expect too much of people becaus they do too much for others. Nervous but lowkey cause their earthiness sort of makes it hum in the background. Has potential to be shady. I love their organisation, chills me the f out. Some reason i feel they be really good at ASMR videos because of their voice & movements. and they r actually quite talkative but its usually nothing too intellectual or snobbish just good natter. Bites their nails!
Libra: i dont get them. They dont make an imposing impression on me as they’re delicate and not too in ya face. Loves knitted jumpers and wearing light colours Ive noticed. Sweet n gentle. Probs could get away with murder. Gets really into things like a celeb or tv series for a while. Has fan blogs probably. like to talk about things such as kpop, clothes, items in their neat pencil case and make up. Idkkk
Scorpio: protectivveee. Intense. Passionate about theirs hobbies and interests. Can become lost in their own intellectual, abstract world forgetting what is truly important until they realise and become regretful and then hold many unresolved grudges. They are e m o t i o n a l but try to hide it - constantly simmering and on the verge of erupting. Though they are quite interested in their own passion - they’ll hype u up about yours and talk for hours about theirs and your own dreams. Abstract knowledge that seems to appear out of no where when they speak -unconventionally smart.
Sagittarius: want to escape reality. Someone i used to know would read a lot of books - probs erotic - she also used her work as escapism? her husband wouldn’t take her on holiday:( another i know comes across very cool and full of knowledge and like to says corny things like ‘you might as well live your life to the fullest because you’ve only got one’. acts like a philosopher. Has gooood taste in music. knows everyone and can keep good relationships with all of them.
Capricorn: thinks they’re are funny af but peeps often laugh at their jokes cause they’re just a bit shit. Tries to come across cool 😎looking for a for job but isn’t working out lol. Wants fame n fortune. they love to talk deep and intellectual without getting too personal. probably quite lovey dovey but it is buried deep inside them. likes to keep it light by listening to music or watching the telly otherwise there thoughts overwhelm them. ( i hav cap moon so might look like a different viewpoint to the others moon signs)
Aquarius: loves to make a point that they are different lol. Intellectual af cause they really smart. Can talk for hours on end but still likes down time. they are the world’s friend but they only let a few know the real them (if thats is actually the real them ). Quirky sense of humour. Hav big dreams and most likely succeed in pursuing them. they are very open about weird stories and experiences they hav had which is fun to hear. will hav something to say about every topic on earth - love to share an opinion.
Pisces: too kind for their own good. They know your weaknesses/insecurities from first time you meet. i think they have melancholy spells which they find themselves in a trance - i catch them staring blankly quite a lot. Love to ask if you’re okay. Mooody. Let down by humanity. Very chatty and has of cool things to say. Music may rule their life - musically talented in one case ik (probs used as escapism). Can be burdened with very unsettling thoughts of not being good enough; making sure they keep there reputation for being the nice guy which means getting pushed about
