This post didn’t really come together how I wanted but I suppose with all the uncertainty to work with it’s hard to write something satisfying. Maybe I’ll edit it or write more later.
(from the post)
"It is the nationalist side of this possible cognitive dissonance that has turned some fans off from Attack on Titan or Isayama, and I do not believe they should be shamed for that. Death of the author for literary analysis is not the same as individual feelings and experiences about something as serious as war atrocities. On top of all the uncertainty, no more information or confirmation about @migiteorerno has surfaced as of this post, so the best thing to do is acknowledge that separation of @migiteorerno from Attack on Titan depends on the person, so long as the situation is understood and beliefs like @migiteorerno’s are not condoned (nor are they treated as a problem exclusive to Japan).”
i picked up sleeping dogs in the steam sale, enjoying it so far
but what is up with this gweilo amanda and her ooh i’m in HK to ~*find*~ myself eat pray love bullshit if she’s the love interest i’m gonna be so mad UGh i would much rather ship wei with raymond or teng or jackie (shit poor qt jackie is gonna die isn’t he don’t spoil me) i wonder if i can just not have to deal with her by refusing to do the pink missions
(Warning: this post contains spoilers for Attack on Titan beyond the anime and discussion of war atrocities.) The popular manga Attack on Titan tells of how war is awful all around and how secrets skew perceptions, so how can its author buy into the censorship of Japan’s war crimes in World War II to consider imperialism something beneficial?

snk mass effect au where eren armin and mikasa (all of shiganshina) are batarians who barely managed to flee khar’shan when the reapers attacked. eren’s latent biotic abilities come out when he is filled with rage over his mom getting turned into a cannibal.
jean and marco are turians. jean is trying to get into c-sec and a safe life on the citadel. he’s kind of a shitty turian. marco wants to protect the council. but a day before they’re about to leave, palaven gets invaded. marco gets reaperized into a marauder and jean is forced to put him down. jean joins the front lines. he complains about being stuck with a vengeful suicidal batarian but eren’s resolve keeps him going.
annie, reiner, and bertholdt are alliance soldiers but actually cerberus sleeper agents. they help orchestrate the attack on the citadel. by the time they realize what they’re doing is wrong, the indoctrination has already gone too deep.
sasha and connie are quarians on pilgrimage when the reapers invade. they defend a small farming colony out in the traverse. the reinforcements arrive too late to save the farmland, but most of the civilians are able to evac.
ymir is a jaded asari ex-commando persuaded to return to the front lines by starry-eyed young alliance marine christa. they embrace eternity all the time when they aren’t ripping through enemy lines as one of the best biotic strike teams.
