OKAY, I’M REALLY PISSED OFF

DID YOU ALL KNOW THAT GIRLS BODIES ARE SUPPOSED TO STORE MORE FAT THE BOYS BODIES? 

AND YET, IT’S MORE ACCEPTABLE FOR A BOY TO ‘BE BIG’ THEN IT IS FOR A GIRL TO ‘BE FAT’

WE ARE STIGMATIZED FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY BIOLOGICAL

» You Cannot Rest Here

feelinranty:

meeplol:

Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”

Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

I do.

Don’t you fuckin do this to me

  • And kept his composure and enthusiasm
  • And didn’t freeze up like Mikasa
  • And didn’t have time to punch somebody like Eren
  • And didn’t have time to mourn like Armin
  • And didn’t have time to change names like Krista
  • And saved Reiner and Krista soon after from the Titans

Reasons why I adore Connie.

This kid does not get nearly enough credit and I absolutely want to just emphasize all this.

Most people focus on Jean being one of those kids who lost it all during the series.

But Connie gets overlooked in this situation. Connie was basically a country bumpkin who left home to join the military to prove himself to his mother. His mother basically told him he wouldn’t be welcome back if he didn’t come back a soldier. (If you’ve read Red Badge of Courage his story actually parallels this book in a number of spots. Especially in the sense that his mother reacted to Connie with the mentality of “You come home with your shield or on it.”) 

Keep in mind that Isayama originally intended for Connie to be one of the kids that Eren witnessed in his nightmare about the future. Connie originally was not supposed to survive, same with Sasha. But this leaves way for an explanation as to why Connie is probably a pivotal example of humanity in this series.

Our first exposure to Connie’s personality is his salute, he performs it backwards and this immediately pins him as being not too bright but eager to preform. He’s nervous and anxious but he’s willing to succeed. He comes from a town where he probably doesn’t have the most formal of education, and relies mostly on street smarts (or farm smarts in his example). He may not know a lot in terms of formal education, but he knows a lot about people, for example, when he called out Ymir for treating Armin like shit after Eren was eaten. He knows he has a calling in the military, but he doesn’t seem to see it as anything more than a calling to help mankind. Hell, Connie probably wanted to enlist in the Military police and assure safety for him and his family rather than be confined to the open countryside where as we would later find out — titans still resided. He probably wasn’t expecting to find his calling to be in the Scouting Legion, even with his success in the Training Camps with rank of 8th among the new soldiers. He was probably like “Whoa I can join the Military Police!” and got super hyped about that.

But hey, this kid was then forced to experience tragedy FIRST HAND. This kid who was probably hardly expecting to excel in the military is then thrown into the fray of an assault on the district where the new graduates were supposed to be finishing their training. Instead of getting to relish in the feeling of being a soldier, Connie like all the others is thrown into hell. The whole fandom and the whole series seems to focus on the events of Eren because this is where his big shifter reveal is, and Jean because of his loss of Marco.

But we’ve got Connie Springer. This country kid who was just enlisting in the military to make his family proud, and how the hell is he going to make them proud when he’s got to face all this?

Given that this, and then the discovery of his home town being overtaken by titans, as well as the realization that his entire family had been turned into titans and subsequently died in the process, we’re talking about a kid whose entire perspective of reality has been flipped on his ass. While everyone gets some means of coping with their grief, Eren channeling his anger into combat, Mikasa’s numbness, Armin’s dedication to those who remain, Jean’s opportunity for closure at the body burning, and even the methods of the shifters who react by hiding their emotions, distance and mental delusions, Connie is the only one of the group who had to pick up and keep going.

Connie was not allowed any time to mourn for his family, he had no closure, no chance to back away and breathe and take things in. Not only did he not have the chance to recuperate, but he lost the friends he could rely on for comfort for something like this.

People don’t give this kid enough credit.

Connie Springer is the example of how sometimes in life, you don’t get the chance to recover. He’s the example of how you need to keep your head up high and keep going. 

And you know what? That’s just what he’s doing.

You go, Connie Springer. Keep your head up and keep fighting.
