Basically, you're in the 104th trainee squad (the one with Eren & friends) and you've had time to develop a bond with them OR a member of the Scouting Legion ( AKA Survey Corps, with Levi, his group, Hanji Zoe, etc.) and have befriended one of them OR a villager (not suggested since the characters move around a lot). It can be romantic, platonic, or even sexual (but let's try to keep it realistic, as in no "I helped Annie pick up her groceries one day and she fell madly in love with me").

RULES:

1) Only one character, no exceptions. (you can have runners-up, but only one final choice)
2) No major changes to the plot or characters (replacing Eren with yourself so Mikasa likes you)
3) "On your side" does not necessarily mean they won't betray you, nor does it mean they won't chicken-out. Consider their character. Trustworthiness is important.
4) Can be anywhere in the year 850 (5 years after the first attack) onward.
5) No spoilers past what is currently known in the anime. (My decision would change if I used my manga knowledge, but let's keep it basic)

Here's the template:

My choice:
Runner(s) up:
My reason:
Our status:
How we came to be:
(feel free to add/subtract stuff)

I'LL GO FIRST!

My choice: Hanji Zoe
Runner(s) up: Sasha Blouse, Annie Leonhardt, Connie Springer
My reason: Crazy girls are sexy.
Our status: I'm basically her go-to for Titan discussion. And speculation. And hypotheses. And anything that has to do with Titans. The other members of the Scouting Legion often thank me for "taking one for the team." I wonder what they mean?
How we came to be: We joined the Scouting Legion together. We didn't talk much until she became fascinated with Titans. Eventually, everyone started to avoid her when she got "excited," but I've long wondered about the Titans as well. She makes me think. I guess I can't blame the others for not wanting to think about something so gruesome.

When (end of episode 15 spoilers)
, Hanji started crying profusely. At first I didn't want to approach her because I thought "she needs to be alone at a time like this," but the other members of the Scouting Legion--the ones who knew about our "relationship" if you can call it that--kept giving me looks. Eventually, Petra shoved me in Hanji's direction. I guessed my judgment was wrong, so I cautiously approached her.

"Hey, Hanji," I said calmly, putting a hand on her shoulder.

Without warning, she lunged at me and wrapped her arms around my waist. I barely kept my stance. Her tears soaked part of my shirt, right below the spot her glasses pressed into. I wanted to pat her head, but jeez, she was really hysterical. I guess as her confidant I was supposed to be there for moral support, though I thought she was beyond all human reach at the time. But apparently not--she reached me just fine. I sighed and put a hand on the back of her head and stood there for what seemed like the whole day while she cried her eyes out.

She was back to normal the next day. At least, I think. And that is, if you can call her "normal" at all. She got sad whenever she brought up memories of Sonny and Bean, but would chipper back up when she realized there were myriad Titans out there for her to discover and study and keep hostage against their will while she forcibly befriended them. And, while I don't know why, out of the blue, she asked me what I thought of marriage.

I can never tell what this girl's thinking.

(Yours doesn't have to be an actual short story xD a description will do).

Aaaand GO!

Ah, looks fun!

My choice: Jean Kirschtein
Runner(s) up: Nope. Nobody else.
My reason: Because I'm totally in love with him
Our status: I like him, but we're "friends." Oh, what else? I tend to follow him around, too. (I guess you could call me a "stalker"?)
How we came to be: We are fellow cadets! We met...well, I was his partner once during drill training and his skills totally blew me away. I'm pretty weak on the physical front, so he started giving me pointers about how to use the opponent's body to my advantage. After many tears and a scolding by Keith Shardis, I finally managed to wrestle that darn wooden knife out of Jean's hands. From then on, my admiration for Jean grew in leaps and bounds!

He's a very kind guy once you get past his rough exterior. After that practice, I started talking to him. He's very realistic (vs the very idealistic Eren) so he always says something interesting. It seems like he talks to Marco a lot more than I do though, so sometimes I just follow him and Marco around without engaging in the conversation. Ah, well, I guess it's weird to like guys when a Titan could eat me any day now, right? I try to hide my feelings but sometimes I feel like I'm too transparent, since I always look like a lost puppy. Oh well...

(Also, his clothes smell really good.)

Very nice! Jean is a really under-appreciated character I think (or maybe people do like him, I dunno). He may seem negative, but I like that he's honest.

This is actually a really interesting thread, imma give it a go.

My choice: Historia Reiss(christa)
Runner Up: Mikasa Ackerman
My Reason: She's really pretty and she's different from the other characters, more caring.
Our Status: I am her good friend, we talk all the time when we are on missions and often off missions. We speak about the titans, and she says the recon corps will slay all of the titans!!(She can always dream.... shh don't tell her i said that).
How we came to be: We joined the recon corps together and i started talking to her because she was very pretty, but then i realized she was an interesting and charming individual which i enjoy talking and fighting together with. She always puts her comrades before herself. Particularly me.... I wonder why?

My choice: Pixis
Runner(s) up: Too many to list, so Pixis it is.
My reason: He's an all-around badass with a good head on his shoulders. He's also a lush, which is a plus.
Our status: I would be working in the Garrison crew--going to him when I needed some level-headed advice on something difficult (which in the world of AoT is invaluable) or an opportunity to hopefully drink and play chess. We could also laugh and trade bizarre stories about what titan we'd prefer to be eaten by, should it come down to it. Levity is key, friends!

My choice: Annie Leonhart

Reason: I don't need one. I'd probably turn masochist for her, if required.

Our Status: Master and Servant for the Holy Grail Wars. Nah, we'd be more like Bonnie and Clyde.



Runner Up: Marco

Reason: Polo

Our Status: 1st place in swimming sports.

My Choice: Sasha
Runner Up: Mikasa, Armin
Reason: She is funny, and comic relief will help when dealing with titans. Also I feel like I have to protect her so it gives me a reason to fight and be strong.

Sure I'll bite, but my choice comes on one condition.



If not, I'm not sure I can decide right now. I'll be picking the series back up when it ends, 'cause I intend to marathon it.

EDIT: Actually, that's a minor spoiler (but still a spoiler), so I tagged it. ... Not that it's really covered up much since someone's quoted it. ^_^;;;;

If saving minor characters is not considered to be a major change, then my choice goes to Miina Carolina.

Just curious, why that particular character? :O

Commander Pixis. We are simply chess playing buddies. Reason: One day, when the titans were on a rampage, I was eaten. Inside this titan, I made a vow that I would not rest until all titans were killed. Then, because my father had injected stuff into me when I was a kid, I became a titan. Through this secret, we became really close, though I was in detention, because I couldn't go out on my way of destroying all titans because of some kid named Eren, the jerk.
Runner Up: Captain Levi.
