What would you say about Ymir's character and her previous actions? You've analyzed every other titan shifter except her, I think- I'm curious to hear what you have to say, if you don't mind.
haha…ha…I got another ask about Ymir as well, so I’ll try, anon! but the truth is that I really am a hopeless Anniebot and only have useful observations about characters insofar as their storylines intersect with the girl’s. that said, stray, scatterbrained thoughts:
my favorite thing about Ymir’s story is that she’s on the other side of an epiphany about self-preservation and finding your own individual way to live that many other characters are working through—Annie, Jean, Sasha, Hanji—but she becomes caught up with possibly the person who’s furthest behind on that particular track, namely Historia, and when she comes up against others she deems have somehow failed to get on her level, she reacts realistically, with frustration. Ymir is thrust into the role of a mentor figure and leader, and unlike Annie, she doesn’t want to be—but she can’t help but take up that mantle anyway. She’s levelled up from where Historia and Sasha are! but things are no better for her on the flip side, and she herself is well aware that she hasn’t found a sustainable and happy equilibrium yet, even allegedly living the way she tells them to live.
ahaha yeah my feelings for that character have totally calmed down [sees picture of them] ahaha never mind. aha. ha. i lied. i fucking lied. i lied so much ahahaha i’m a fucking liar i have no control in my life ahaha help me
was reading accounts of japanese biological experimentation with a growing sense of familiar unease and that’s when I realized it reminded me of reading scp articles. that’s when you know these people were fucking batshit.
