OKAY YOU FUCKERS LET’S TAKE A SECOND TO TALK ABOUT EREN JAEGER AND WHY HE’S ACTUALLY LEGITIMATELY MY FAVORITE CHARACTER  IN ALL OF SNK AND WHY 90% OF PEOPLE’S CONCEPTION OF THIS POOR KID ARE KIND OF WRONG AND UNFAIR. 
I will be honest with you I started this series off really really hating Eren. A lot. I thought he was loud, whiny, screamed too much, and pretty generic for an anime protagonist. Consistently angry with a life-long vendetta fueled by a traumatic past involving a dead mom and a missing dad.(*coughisthisedwardelriccough*)BUT NO. Eren is NOT Edward Elric, and I will go as far as to say Eren, in my opinion, is a far better and more inspirational protagonist than Edward Elric. 
And it’s because of this one quote, right here. "While he lacks any outstanding talents, he improved his grades through outstanding diligence"People tend to interpret this as “Eren is a loser L O L he has no talents”. And I’m like NO YOU SIT DOWN. What this should be interpreted as is unlike all his trainee mates, Eren possess no natural talent for anything, but overcomes this by studying and training twice as hard as everyone else. He works SO DAMN HARD that he ranks 5th out of THE ENTIRE 104th, and is even stated to be THE BEST at hand-to-hand comabt out of EVERYONE ELSE BECAUSE HE WORKED REALLY FUCKING HARD. This means SO MUCH and I actually had to pause this episode and sit back and let that sink in. We are constantly faced with the pressure of never being as good as that one genius kid in your class who always gets good grades and doesn’t even need to try. We are always comparing ourselves to those who stand out and excel and think, no matter how hard I try, I won’t be as good as that guy. Unlike any anime protagonist I’ve ever seen, Eren is literally (well, at least for like the first 7 episodes) a relatively normal, average guy who’s physical strength is constantly overlooked because of his OP as fuck sister, and intelligence is always questioned because of his nerdy blonde friend. When he can’t figure out how the fuck to use 3DMG gear he swallows his pride and asks for help. When Mikasa tells him he’ll die without her protection, he accepts this because he knows he isn’t as strong as her. Eren KNOWS he is probably average at best and unlike most anime protagonists I’ve ever seen, Eren actually needs to fucking try harder than everyone else because he knows he isn’t naturally talented, but he doesn’t let that get in the way. Eren represents the way 99% of us feel- inadequate in comparison to the countless of “more talented” people, but shows to not let that feeling of inadequacy let you give up. Eren is relatively average, but he’s not gonna fucking stay that way if he has any say about it 
i mean he turns into a 15 meter buff as fuck titan but its not like he asked for that shit to happen 
This has been a post by Isabel about why you should stop writing off Eren as an unintelligent lame bratty loser and love him like the adorable little fucker he is

Sakura wasn’t sure for how long she slept, but when she did finally wake up, Eren was still fast asleep. She smiled and stayed snuggled up against him, it felt nice to relax.

Eren still had an arm around her, “hmn…” he sighed in his sleep. he muttered something softly.

She wasn’t able to hear what he said exactly, and just assumed it was random sleeptalk. Sakura watched him with gentle eyes as he slept, he was rarely this calm when he slept, and she was happy he was getting a good rest.

He hummed in a way that sounds like he was waking up but slowly satrted snoring again. He had no reason to get up and he dodnt want to get up.

Sakura giggled slightly and closed her eyes again. She loved moments like this with him.

He smiled slightly in his sleep, “mn.” He hummed out. It looked like he was trying to chuckle.

She opened her eyes when she heard him hum again and smiled. She moved a little and placed a light kiss on his cheek. “I love you.” She said in barely a whisper.

he unconsciously wrapped his arms around her and squeezed her lightly. “hm…” he hummed again.

"I know I will be. Im worried about you." He looked at her, making sure she was really okay with this idea. He sighed, letting it go. He smiled softly knowing he was being stupid.


Sakura smiled back, and moved away so she was just sitting next to him. “Silly, you should worry more about yourself than me.” She poked him gently and laughed. ‘I’m not going anywhere.”

He looked away, “sorry I guess im just tired of losing people…” he sighed and calmed down, “sorry.”


"It’s ok. You will not be able to get rid of me so easily, whether you like it or not…I’m here to stay." She looked at him gently and smiled. "I promise."

"Nobody stays forever. Not even I can live forever." He smiled, "that is a lesson im reminded of everyday im still living." He looked kinda weak after that, "everyday"


Sakura stayed calm, she knows what it is like to lose someone. After-all, her own dad just died recently. “I know. But as long as I am alive, I will be here for you. I hope you know that Eren,”

"yah, i know." he smiled slightly. he didnt know anything to say to her after that. He just laid there looking at her silently, "im sorry.."

He smiled, “well, be careful for my leg.” He smiled softly, “ill be seeing you soon.”

“Mhmm…” She hummed slightly in response and made sure not to put pressure on his leg before she fell asleep.

He decided hed fall asleep too. Still being tired from sleeping less. He smiled, and kept an arm around her shoulders.

Sakura wasn’t sure for how long she slept, but when she did finally wake up, Eren was still fast asleep. She smiled and stayed snuggled up against him, it felt nice to relax.

He looked into her eyes, his own fear of the subject growing in his. “Are you sure?” He asked, tilting his head to the side. He tried to overcome his own fear but at the same time there was happiness mixed in with his fear which only showed in his eyes, like most of the emotions hed ever felt.

“Yes.” She smiled again and reached forward to gently place her hands on his face, moving to rest her forehead against his. “You are going to be ok.” It wasn’t that she hadn’t seen that fear in his eyes before, because she had. It was a look she had see often reappear.

"I know I will be. Im worried about you." He looked at her, making sure she was really okay with this idea. He sighed, letting it go. He smiled softly knowing he was being stupid.
