There is at least some kind of explicit platonic connection, if not a romantic one as well. Annie could have killed Armin many times over. She knew that he was smart, and that he could tell she was a human in Titan form. She knew that he was probably her most dangerous adversary. But she let him live. The emotions tied into this… I honestly love this ship. I truly feel like this is canon.
(What you ship is of course your own business and I’m not saying anything is ‘wrong’ or ‘right’.)
To me, these two represent friendship in a confusing and violent world that destroys all good things, and that is so tragic and beautiful. Look at Armin’s face. It’s almost as though he can tell that it’s Annie. That expression almost seems like one of recognition. He even says later on how he figured out that it was Annie, but I think he knew all along. Not just because of how she looked, but how she behaved. And I think he understood that she was being merciful towards him. That she honestly would have been better served by crushing him under her foot, and twice spared him. I don’t ship Aruani in an AU. I don’t ship Aruani as if there was some complicated backstory that enables it to be realistic. These characters, as they exist in the story, look to me like two people in love, and with no idea what to do about it.

PFFFT oh my goodness, I wasn’t expecting you to see that. I’m fine ^-^ and you’re amazingly observant o:

You have no idea how many conversation I start on this post! I love it it’s like my fandom-child ;w; but yes please do not cry. Go read an AU fic that is not sad so you will not cry. :)

Pfft(x ah, yes. Happy AU sounds very nice.

rachelhirosue asked:

All dem mythology questions °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

Anubis: Well…I think most people are afraid to die. Usually I don’t think about it, but there are times at funerals and stuff where I think about going to sleep one day and never waking up. Just being surrounded by darkness and alone. And when I think that that’s what death feels like, it absolutely terrifies me.

Atum: I’m a selfish, impatient, and critical person.

Bastet: Nope ^-^ I’m actually more of a dog person.

Hathor: Pizza

Horus: The ability to overlook my flaws and be comfortable with myself.

Osiris: Hm…I think I do, but I’ve always kind of figured I’d be put in the bad part of it.

Ra: Not really.

Thoth: I haven’t written in a long time (I’m bad with words) But occasionally I do ^-^ as for reading, I do enjoy it but it has to be a book (or fanfiction) that I really enjoy reading.

Arawn: Skip

Bran: Pretty good for someone who forgets to eat more than half the time and gets zero sleep.

Brighid: It’s pretty good, I think. We’re not super close, but I think we have an alright relationship for the most part.

Cernunnos: I like dogs~ but I think all animals are pretty rad

Danu: I love my mom, but we don’t exactly have a close relationship. Meaning: I don’t really confide in either of my parents at all. And she works a lot, so I only see her after the sun’s set over the summer.

Morrigan: I somewhat believe in Heaven and Hell, but of course the only people who truly know what happens aren’t exactly around to tell.

Olwen: Flowers aren’t really my thing, but I do like sunflowers and pretty much all roses.

Rhiannon: I think everyone has.

Bragi: I’ll listen to just about anything as long as it tickles my fancy.

Freya: I have not ^-^

Hœnir: Silent, for the most part. I only speak unless spoken to. Unless we’re close friends. Then expect me to bug you at five in the morning because I realized my contact app looks like the wall Sina logo.

Iounn: How old do you think I am?

Loki: I don’t think I’ve ever pulled a trick on someone before o: at least not that I can remember…

Odin: I think my family’s pretty average…mom, dad, half brother. None of us are exceptionally close, though.

Thor: I can kill spiders, so HECK yeah.

Tree: I finished an entire vat of ice cream the other day.

Aphrodite: Physically: I’ve accepted my appearance for the most part and have no problem with it.

Psychologically: I am not a good person ^-^

Ares: Not really

Athena: A mediocre one

Apollo: I gave up trying to read music in the second grade, so nah.

Dionysus: I’m underaged

Hades: No idea

Hekate: Forget, that

Hermes: Gum. Once. I felt really cool

Poseidon: Not particularly

Zeus: PFFFT NAH

Jupiter: Some people say that before they met me they were afraid of me???? But like now I’m pretty much their punching bag (I’m not saying they’re mean people). People. BELIEVE me. I’m much more scared of you than you could ever be of me.

Pluto: I just realized how many questions about death are on here. I don’t know, homie. And I hope I still have a lot of time before I find out. Life is rad. Focus on life.

Apollo & Diana: Night. The sun is evil.

Mars: I have a million cousins and grew up around mostly boys. /Of course/ I’ve fought a few times.

Minerva: I’m not sure….but when I’ve tried to give advice to my friend she didn’t listen to me and exactly what I said would happen happened.

Proserpine: Sure, I have.

Plutus: I’m a lazy bum.

Venus: I wouldn’t go /that/ far, but have I ever been hurt by someone I had feelings for? Of course.

Vesta: Home is my favorite place to be. If I lived on my own, I’d probably never ever leave.

Morpheus: Yes. And anime.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m weaboo trash.

Is it just me, or does it seem like Armin is going through more of a living hell than all the others?

Let me start with the fact that Armin joined the Cadet Corps and Survey Corps because he had no family left. And if you go back to the first few episodes, especially the episode where he states Eren’s case to the Garrisons, he talks about trying to prove his strength and equality to his friends. Now, if you ask me, that is a pretty brave move. He joined the Survey Corps to prove himself, even though he knew that he was far weaker than everyone else. I mean, he’s pretty much the only person who didn’t get into the top ten for the Cadet Corps, right?

So let’s think about it like this. Armin is terrified to begin with. He had multiple near death experiences with titans, and one in which he was almost swallowed by one, only to be pulled out by his best friend, and then see his best friend be eaten. Now, I don’t know about you, but that’s enough to make me go crazy. Then he goes on the Female Titan mission, where he is closely encountered with Annie in her titan form, almost sees his comrades killed, but still manages to figure out that the titan is Annie before anyone else. Fast forward a little to after he is in Levi’s squad, and he is constantly having to assist in experimenting on his life long best friend, where he has to watch him lose complete control over himself, remembering that Levi said he would instantly kill Eren if he became a problem. Later on, he has to dress up as Historia because he looks frail and weak enough to be her. He is harassed and pretty much raped by the creepy ass merchant man, and his comrade is sitting there watching him in tears, unable to help him. Then fast forward a little more, and he has to shoot a woman who was about to kill his comrade, and instead of mourning for her and thinking it through, he is forced to go straight back to the mission, which made him feel like more of a terrible person than he already thought he was. After he gets back to where they were staying, he lets all his emotion out to the point of vomiting and shaking violently. Mikasa came out and tried to comfort him, and Armin asked Mikasa if she ever felt that bad about killing the man when she was younger. When he realizes what he asked her, he immediately regretted it even though it wasn’t much of a big deal to Mikasa, because he felt like he had hurt her when he said it. So he is sitting here, crying, vomiting, shaking, and on top of that, he is trying to apologize to Mikasa all at the same time. Then Levi comes out and tries to reason with him, which makes him ask even more questions, like why he didn’t hesitate when he pulled the trigger, or if that girl had a family and all of that.

He went through all of this just to prove that he is his life long friends’ equals. 

Now if you ask me, that is fucking impressive.

This is dedicated to all of you Armin haters out there. I want all of you to fucking read this.

I agree with all of this except “and pretty much raped.” I’d call it sexual assault, but it’s not rape or “pretty much rape.”

I’d never undermine other people’s trials, but I do think that Armin’s been through some serious shit in this series and people who still think he’s a weakling/baby/wimp/whatever need to take another look at everything he’s been through and re-evaluate his character. He’s grown a lot over the course of the story.
