I found THE BEST THING. A visual height reference of “you” compared to famous actors and actresses. Of course I hope you all use this to see how tall a Tauren next to a Blood Elf would be or whatever.
The catch is that you need to know the heights of actors, but that can be solved easily enough by googling “actor who is [height]” as convenient. Then you put the other number in as you and watch the magic happen.
Also you get to be amazed at how small some actors are. Did you know that Amy Poehler is 5’ 2"? What the heck.
Obviously I did mine for my character and my friends’. Skrimps and Nitrostat (Skrimps is some kind of raid boss next to Nitrostat) and then Skrimps and Viletta, and Viletta and Nitrostat (perfect boob-peepin’ height).
I’d rather wait for the full chapter before making assumptions from vague spoilers. It was literally a fiasco last time I did it so…
I’ll just mention shortly about the main spoiler considered true: Every shifter has 13 years to live after their transformation. While I’m glad becoming a shifter doesn’t grant immortality. That implies a lot of things with every shifter’s action and consequences behind their transformation.
Frieda and Uri became rulers because their predecessor’s life was about to come to an end. I thought Uri’s state was mostly due to the coordinate and the mental alteration associated with it, similar to victims from a ghost curse in Japanese horror novels. But apparently, every shifter is affected by this condition, meaning Frieda’s life would end at 28, assuming she’d have a successor.
Reiner’s line about the warriors being “shot-lived mass murderer” takes a different meaning as well. I initially thought it was about him being hunted down as a mass-murderer but it turns out he’s well aware he has 8 years to live at best.
In complement, Bertolt’s line about how enjoyable their time as infiltrate soldiers was dead honest because… they actually don’t have much time left in their lives. Him commenting about the cruelty of the world references him being enslaved from birth to death: pushed in training at 5-7, selected at 10-11, death planned at 23-24. Warriors literally had no future even if the mission is a success.
It’s unclear whether or not shifter utilization and physical condition influences the threshold. In order to save himself, Reiner performed an extremely risky action, which is brain function transfer. I have no idea how fatal it is for his lifespan, but that could very well cut him a few years left.
About Zeke, I have no idea whether or not he’s the exception or if the life expectancy has been stretched when Grisha was gone, but nothing proves he turned to Marley warriors right after. All he wanted was to get away from his parents and their influence. He’s still healthy as a shifter, with the only sign of “decay” being his eyebags, meaning at best he used the serum in his early twenties. Once again, if he isn’t the exception.
That also explains why Reiner’d rather keep his distances with Bertolt because attachment at this point means misfortune, since I suspect him pushing Bertolt to Annie is him thinking he doesn’t deserve Bertolt and:or can’t make him happy.
Erwin really dodged a huge bullet from the serumbowl. He didn’t come back with a 13 year timer on his forehead. Meanwhile Eren and Mikasa unknowingly put it on Armin’s, meaning he’ll outlive Eren by five years at best.
Grisha’s timer was coming to an end, which is why he entrusted Eren with his shifter power instead of doing it himself. The same can be assured for Kruger?
This is also what motivated Ymir from leaving Historia because she knew she couldn’t ensure their long future together in that state.
And there’s a spoiler about Grisha naming his son after Kruger, the main card of the revolutionaries? What the hell? Is he so obsessed with glory he literally names his sons after war men? No wonder fandom considers him selfish.
I know you think this is stupid and it probably is…But, I don’t care. All I wanted to do today was lay down and cry, but we don’t get to do that. So beat up on walkers if that makes you feel better. I n e e d to do this.
