Eruri, Ere//ri, Levi//han
i’ve already answered ereri and levihan previously… so you get the good one!
eruri… they’re red blue gays. just look that post up on tumblr. that’s how you know it’s a ship. and that it’s canon.
but seriously, i never knew i could fall for something so hard. i’m not even playing. i think isayama unintentionally wrote the greatest love story when it comes to these two. and you know what, i don’t even give a shit if you don’t ship them, but you have to respect the shit that went down in the “return to shinganshina” arc. that even if you don’t see the silent trust found through their actions when they’re apart during “the uprising”, you have to see that there’s something there.
and maybe it’s a little cheap that the ackerbond is the reason for it. that levi’s loyalty probably wouldn’t be so strong, but the thing about the ackerbond is that it’s usually mutual respect (i actually don’t think eren/mikasa has much of that, eren is too fucking broken). erwin wants levi as much as levi wants erwin. either as a weapon, a confidant, or a lover–they’re meant to be on each other’s sides until the very end.
they hurt me so deeply. like… i’ve been heavily affected by ships before. but there’s just too many days where i think of levi’s faces in 84 and i just can’t fucking function for a few seconds. he’s drawn with so much emotion–a character that we see so little emotion from in the entire series–and he just completely unravels for erwin.
they’re so selflessly in love with each other it’s hard to fathom sometimes. they’re perfect examples as to why isayama is better at character development than plot writing. it’s a tragically beautiful love story, and i wish we could see levi grieve over the loss of his other half.
