this took me all day and i’m still unhappy with how it came out, but i want to post it anyway because i honestly couldn’t figure out how to make it any better. my favourite part is jean’s arm and i don’t know why
prom night in that angsty Make A Wish AU. the theme was space. jean’s homeschooled but marco insisted on bringing him as his date. they only dance for a short while because of a couple of… issues.
In the years after the war, Erwin takes his stipend, invests the majority of it, and buys a home on one of the smaller colonies, with enough space that he feels that he can learn to breathe again.
Levi follows him silently and stays, just as quietly, for four months in Erwin’s guest bedroom. Eventually, there comes a morning where Erwin wakes up and Levi’s gone – all of this he accepts. He hadn’t expected it to last.
He learns to live again: learns how to sleep in, how to ease his body out of conditioned attention, how to not reach for his gun when noise startles him awake at night. He considers that, somewhere across the vast infiniteness of space, Levi might be doing the same. He wonders what it looks like.
