</b> Okay, you guys have to admit that we have some weird shipping names in SNK fandom.<p><b></b> Ereri I understand. It's Eren/Rivaille. It makes sense, but if that's what it is, wtf is eruri?<p><b></b> Eruri is supposed to be Erwin/Rivallie, but that doesn't make sense. There is no 'u' anywhere in either of their names.<p><b></b> Same with yumikuri (Ymir/Krista) and aruani. (Armin/Annie) Where on earth are all of these u's coming from?<p><b></b> And then there's jeanmarco... Seriously, fandom? Did you even try?<p>
Thank you everyone that messaged me with an explanation. (Basically, the Japanese pronunciation makes it sound like there is a u in there.) But there's still another one that bothers me:
Yesterday was a really trying day for me in a number of ways, so when I woke up and found the following message in my inbox, I actually got a bit misty. The author — a really cool person named charliesolvednothing — said it would be okay if I went ahead and shared. So here it is.
Man, I didn’t even read the text underneath the panel depicting Vriska’s giant spiderhellspawn of a lusus yesterday, I just x'ed the hell out of that tab as quickly as I could (´-﹏-`；)
See, look at this. She’s fine. Fine and huge and hungry as ever.
You… guess you’re relieved? Yes, of course. Whew! Why wouldn’t you be. It would be devastating if anything happened to your dear sweet custodian.
What a shitty situation to be in???
Like, either she openly hopes that somebody will just finally off the damn thing for good and hates herself for it cause, man, she probably DOES still feel attached to her in some way, and lusus (that’s the correct latin plural dammit, i refuse to say “lususes”) are the closest thing trolls have to a parental figure, you don’t wish death on your own mother OR she refuses to acknowledge those incredibly understandable and reasonable feelings and instead pretends that everything is just fine, she loves that big ol’ grotesquery very much and would HATE it if she ever got hurt, which leads to Vriska letting her life be dictated and ruined by her
