Hyperion by hikariix Hyperion by hikariix
Inspired by eeeeeeeeeerenjaegar's prompts on tumblr of Levi finally breaking and crying. Heavily, heavily referenced from a scene in Kotonoha no Niwa.

I’m not entirely sure where I was going with this. I think I wanted to depict a Levi who finally gets kind of messed up in the head from years and years of fighting and war and seeing his comrades die around him. He eventually develops a fear of going outside the walls and a love/hate relationship with Eren because he disagrees with Eren’s recklessness.

So maybe 5-7 years post-canon, established relationship, the Scouting Legion has discovered a way to Eren’s basement in Shiganshina. Eren is older and more mature, but still acts impulsively. In the prior mission, Levi was injured and Eren makes a reckless save. Levi stays behind due to the injury and the rest of the legion leave in the middle of the night without telling him. The night before they left, Levi had lashed out and admits that he should’ve never gotten close.

Levi contemplates going after them but only gets as far as putting on his gear every morning and waiting as the fear takes over. Eren returns months later.

please support the tumblr post!
