Letter to a Stranger || Closed

malign-sensualist:

Stranger, 

Nah, this… interesting in its own way. I kind of find the mystery of it enthralling on its own… but really, I doubt my meager contribution of $10.00 at the local Hastings for one of his films is that much of a loss. 

Hmmm… that isn’t a bad idea… although maybe we should make a guess. I’d like to see how accurate my mental image of you is, compared to the reality. Ah, that is a little awkward maybe. I’m sort of shocked you’re military, I wouldn’t have pegged you as the type… but maybe that is insulting. If so I… apologize to offend you. Haha, cats are interesting animals. I have one of my own, an Egyptian Mau; a gift to myself about eight years ago. Maybe you aren’t around enough for your cat? I imagine, being your rank in the military keeps you busy… but I’ve never really been involved in those sorts of things. What’s her name? 

HAH! I don’t really even know you but I couldn’t imagine trying to ‘match’ you with some blind date. Christ, at least I avoided that particular inconvenience. 

As for myself, I’m nothing spectacular. I was a Professor of History at the local college in my old city. I’m… well, not un-employed, but not working either. I tutor this hopeless brat online. A favor to his father. He’s a good kid, but Gods above is he stupid. Poor thing, I almost feel bad for him if he wasn’t so damn infuriating. As for hobbies, I have… a few. I clean mostly, and I know other people don’t consider it a hobby but it is soothing for me. I enjoy playing chess with the old men at the park downtown on Saturday, although it’s best to bring your own pieces. I’m terrible, but still enjoy it. While I don’t think this last activity is a hobby, it is very much a habit. Have you ever sat in those small Mom and Pop cafes right before the morning work rush? It’s peaceful, to watch them dash about avoiding this little spot… Mmm I think I would have enjoyed more places like this one in my life. Just slow and steady.

Ugh, I sound like an old man…. I’m pretty boring I guess… that’s what people say anyway. Is your life very exciting? I find I’m a creature of habit rather than spontaneity. 

- Levi 

Levi,

Ah, Egyptian Mau are gorgeous felines. I’d keep one if I could, but I’m content with my fat little treasure that seems to loathe the entire world. I suppose you’re right. I adopted her, and she already had a very high independent streak when I laid eyes on her at the store. Despite all her failings, I love her dearly, and I’m sure she realizes that too when she sprawls on my lap and demands attention. Oh, and her name is Fiona. I thought it matched her perfectly.

'I'm nothing specular,' he says. I wish I had the patience to be a professor. I would probably try to teach something like Creative Writing even though to some, it's a rather unimportant aspect of college. A lot of young people go into the world without an ounce of imagination, and I suppose if the military wasn't my life, that would be something I would love trying to help them remember. Ah, it sounds sorta lame when I write it down though. It all sounds much better in my head, I assure you, ahaha!

Anyway, that stupid kid might surprise you one day. Perhaps he’s going through that kind of phase where everything flies over his head, but then one day, he writes the formula for a cure for cancer. I am thrilled to hear you share my passion for chess. It’s so hard convincing people to play with you since not many know the game very well. Checkers seems to be what most people are well versed in, so whenever I bring up chess, it’s like trying to explain astral physics. And, I share your love for busy places. I…am unsure, but there is comfort in such places.

I suppose we’ll both turn into old men who sit in cafes and watch the young people dash about with dishes and trays of food.

- A Stranger-

//What if Maerith came back with his menacing pink ribbon?

//Erwin would forever question Maerith’s fashion choice and wonder if he could offer some changes—like a blue ribbon for example.

Price of Nobility // @charismatic-commander

eatthebread:

❁ ~ At this, Rock was truly puzzled. He wasn’t well versed with women, the majority of their staff was even male. The young man wasn’t very good with them either, as it wasn’t his intention to ignore Mikasa, he just wasn’t quite sure how to address her…especially as the fiancee to his father whom was barely more than a year older than himself. Yet he knew, from his minimal amount of observation, this was strange. To allow her to listen as well as leave the decision ultimately in her hands…

He was sure, that when he came here, if Mr. Smith was still a man of integrity, he would immediately forbid his daughter from marrying Geese Howard, not turn the decision to her. Although…Rock wasn’t quite sure why women weren’t allowed to make these decisions…he supposed it was fair, she was the one that had to live with the consequences of it.

So he looked at her once more, awaiting what could only be a logical decision.

Mikasa was hungry…more than anything else, breakfast had been ready, yet they were here speaking of grim things as her food grew cold. The coffee settled oddly in her stomach without porridge to soften the effect. Sighing she held her mug with both hands.

This was the sort of man she was marrying…Mikasa wouldn’t allow herself to just be shut away, she would run, sick or not. She’d find a way…a little misery beforehand meant very little to what marrying him for her father would do for their family and their name.

"My decision stands as it once was. I’m not marrying him tomorrow, after all." She pick up the empty coffee mugs and placed them on a tray, "If I find I do not like him, then I shan’t marry him. Not to be cruel, Mr. Howard…" Mikasa took the dishes to the sink, "…It’s been a very long time…since that happened. Men don’t easily take new wives…People talk, after all."

{ ♜ }        Ɛrwin inwardly gave a small sigh at the answer from his daughter he knew she would utter. Mikasa had every intention on continuing, although he did feel comforted to know that if she disliked him, she would turn the man down. However, that left a single question in his head as he mulled over her words. What if she stayed her hand regardless just because she worried about her father? Mikasa…her mother…him—they were all bleeding hearts when it came to family, and that had served in a sense, as their collective downfall. Erwin had been willing to throw everything away to be with Mikasa’s mother, and he was still willing to do the same thing if it meant keeping his daughter safe and way from the hungry wolves outside.  

He knew…he could not protect her forever though. She was a woman, and one day, would very well leave the house and begin her own journey that all people her age went on. Her life would be her own without her father glancing over her shoulder to ensure that she was well taken care of. He was already aware that he would have ‘empty nest syndrome’ when that happened considering most of his life was spent taking care of Mikasa and giving her everything he could despite their financial difficulties. Being wealthy, and yet not really—it was a hard concept for many to grasp. However, falling below a certain income when you were making an incredible amount was like seeing someone fall into the pains of bankruptcy. Only those in this life could truly understand.

The Smith name used to be one that inspired awe…

Now it inspired pity.

“There. You have her response, Rock.” It was…odd saying first names, but he felt a tinge of discomfort saying ‘Mr. Howard’. “I’m afraid once her mind is made up, there’s no stopping her, but…with these words in mind, they might help with the final decision when it comes.” Erwin knew it wouldn’t. Mikasa would continue regardless more than likely. Still, he needed to try and deter Rock’s worry and concern. This boy—this young man, was truly different from his cold father. Every word that left the other blond was sincere. Why wouldn’t his daughter just marry this man? He was noble enough to where Erwin felt he would not need to worry.

The only thing he would lament is Rock’s atrocious manners.

An AU where for your entire life you’ve only seen black and white, until you receive the first touch from your soulmate and color blooms before your very eyes. The colors don’t stay when you’re alone, but when they’re there by your side and you’re touching? Everything is beautiful.

{ ♜ }        Ƥartner? Like romantic partner? Or maybe she meant partner as in…friend? He honestly didn’t know. “Soul…I can’t say he’s familiar to me. Why did he run off exactly?”
