The Moment it Shattered [Levi/Reader]Your light steps seem deafeningly loud in the silent, deserted hallways, the flickering light thrown from a few candles aiding the shadows in coming to life and playing tricks on your mind. It's still better than the suffocating, lonely darkness of your room. At least now, you have a purpose (albeit a small one) rather than just laying in bed alone trying not to let the horrors in your head paint themselves over the ceiling, playing over and over again until you're either driven mad or fall into a fitful sleep. So far the first hasn't happened (hopefully; you suppose you wouldn't know if you were crazy) and you're realizing that nightmares are becoming a more frequent nightly visitor than even your boyfriend.
Funny then, that that happens to be where you're going, right? You understand why he hasn't been spending time with you, though. It's not like you're the only one with problems as a result of the things you've seen.
While you are left with crip
After the Scarf: Day Out"Are you ready?"
You looked up from the mirror you stood in front of, brush in hand. Rivaille stood in the doorway, one hand on the door frame, his face blank as usual. He wasn't wearing his normal uniform, instead opting for a button up shirt and black slacks, but still wearing his cravat, you noticed. The thought brought a small smile to your lips.
"Almost" You replied, giving you hair a few more strokes with the brush.
You looked up again, finding your daughter pushing her way into the room from between Rivaille's legs. She wore a simple home spun dress, her dark hair and eyes matched that of her father. She was truly growing in a beautiful girl. Rivaille always claimed it was your beauty she inherited. The thought made you blush.
Jeanne looked up at you, holding onto the folds of your skirt. Her eyes went wide, and a grin graced her childlike face.
"Wah~! Momma looks so pretty!"
Rivaille chuckled, leaning against the door frame. "Yes, she does." The way Rivai
ATS: The Expedition (Part 2)"RIVAILLE!"
The name was screamed with horror and desperation. You turned your horse sharply, heading for where Rivaille had landed. You could hear Mikasa calling after you, also peeling away from the squad to follow you.
The giant was advancing towards the small patch of trees where Rivaille had landed, its footsteps shaking the earth beneath you.
Mikasa rode beside you, yelling above the sound of footsteps, "I'm going after the titan. Make sure Corporal is alright!" Her face, for once, was concentrated into a look of anger and determination. Before you could object, she had pulled out her blades, and rode off towards the titan.
You watched her ride away, nervousness boiling in your stomach. You pushed it away and concentrated on flying towards the small patch of woods where your corporal lay injured.
You could hear the footsteps of the titan and the whiz of Mikasa's gear as she maneuvered around the giant. You ignored them and rode through the trees to where a gap i

"Kill. . . Levi?"
Her own brother? [Name] gritted, and the parchment in her hand got even more crumpled because of her hand that was tightening. She had to assassinate her own brother.
And it was assigned by Erwin Smith, the commander.
[Name] then stood up, and look up at the walls. What was she going to do now? She didn't sense anyone watching her, but this person could possibly anywhere. Why couldn't they get another person to do it?! she thought angrily.
To kill Levi or to watch all of her friends die in the most horrid way.
"What do I do, Marco?"
If I want to save my friends, and not kill Ravi, I guess I have to kill Erwin Smith. Yet, [Name] could tell that the Commander was a good person, and is like a fatherly figure. No, that's just an act.
After the Scarf: Expedition (Prolouge)AUTHORS NOTE:
I remind everyone that this series is not necessarily in order. It jumps around the timeline a lot. For example, last chapter was after Jeanne, whereas this chapter is when Reader is still in the survey corps. Please bear with me, for I prefer writing this way. Thank you.
A dozen figures in green clad cloaks sat on horseback by the gate, anxiously awaiting for it to open. You were one of those few chosen for the mission preluding the larger one to follow in a week. You and 11 others, many from your trainee group, were chosen specifically for the mission. Not only to test your battle skills, but also to provide information for the upcoming mission beyond the walls. Amoung those chosen was Jean, Reiner, Bertholdt, Mikasa, Sasha, and of course, Rivaille, who led the mission. There were a few others which you didn't bother to learn the names of.
It had been around a month after your shoulder had healed. Although you frequently had trouble with it, you didn't b

You awoke to the sound of soft exhales in your ear, and the feeling of your back pressed against a broad chest. You blinked your eyes in drowsy confusion before remembering last night's events. Your face settled into a soft smile as you turned over in Rivaille's arms so you faced him.
He was still asleep, his usually harsh features softened into a gentle expression of slumber. You lifted up a hand to brush his feathery bangs from his face, the action causing him to stir slightly and mumble in his sleep.
You let out a small chuckle, removing your hands and simply observing his features as he slept.
Yet your thoughts couldn't help but wander back to the events going on around you. You knew you were no longer safe with the bounty on your head. You were in danger now more than ever. The chances of you being had found had skyrocketed, and the chances of Rivaille being arrested as well.
You didn't want to go back. You loved your new
The Strategist 2 [Levi/Reader/Eren]Soon after settling the two idjits down, you drifted back off into a fitful sleep, full of dreams of your deceased squad, and when you next wake you're more exhausted than before and are alone to boot. There are no nurses around, but you're surrounded by fellow patients; there are too many injured. The room smells like iron and death and you start to feel nauseous. You just want to be back in the women's barack, in your own bed, surrounded by your books to comfort you while you heal. Yeah, like hell you're staying here.
You push off the blanket that has you trapped and swing both legs over the side of the bed, admiring the good job whoever did on splinting your leg, before glancing around the room for crutches. Spotting a pair leaning on the opposite wall, you make haste, standing up and hopping on one leg over to them. You're a little dizzy by the time you get there, and there's a sheen of sweat on your brow, but it was so worth it considerin

[Attack on Titan x Levi's Sister!Reader]
The sound of the small balls coming out from the muzzle of the firearms screamed loudly into the air. The sparks seem to come as each one shoots out, then disappearing in a split second. The light turned on and off, and the sound was still ringing in everyone's ears. [Name] kept pulling the matchlock, quickly shooting right after. She saw the bullets hit the Titan's eye, and she smirked.
They began to step back, steam rising off their eyes as it began to regenerate. Their hands were rose to their eyes, surprised of the sudden attack. The shooting had now stopped, and [Name] heard the sounds of footsteps hitting against the metal supports from above. The sound of clothing then was heard, telling her that the seven had started to attack.
[Name] lowered he firearm to her side, but kept it up so that it was ready t
Thug!Rivaille x Lady!Reader: Glitters like GoldChapter 8
You pushed your way into the tavern, inhaling the sour scent of alcohol and earthy scent of dirt. The tavern was empty, all its usual occupants at work or lunch. Only the tavern keeper sat behind the counter, leafing through a book.
You tried to creep past him, but his voice stopped you:
You froze, turning your head slowly in his direction. You smiled nervously. "Yes?"
He nodded his head to a barstool. "Sit."
You knew you probably shouldn't be interacting with this man, but a part of you wanted to trust him, to make a friend in this strange tumultuous world.
So you sat opposite of him, hoisting yourself up onto the barstool and leaning on the wooden countertop.
He observed you over the contents of his book, setting it aside after a moment and crossing his arms. "What did you say your name was?"
You had to bite back your answer before you revealed your real name. "(Fake name)" You smiled. "And you are?"
"Gerard." he replied, offering a large, me
(Modern!AU) Just Move - Levi x Reader: Chapter 2The way the raven hair framed his forehead.
The way his mouth never gravitated to a genuine smile; nothing more than an irritable twist of the lips.
The way his voice would send chills down your spine; so much so that you would feel as if there were electric currents surging through your spinal cord.
And the way he walked. His stride never faltered from his usual cynical and stoic position. Always acting as if he were the better one.
You locked eyes with the man who was short but very temperamental for his age. His jacket wasn't zipped all the way up, allowing you to catch a glimpse of his v-neck shirt showing off his muscular collarbone. You suppressed a fierce blush and regained control of your breath.
"Oi," you asked, irritation swarming in your voice, "I asked you a question. What are you doing here?"
"Do I bother gracing that question with an answer or are you really that thick-headed?" He spat back at you, with slight humour ringing through his voice.
"Say that again," you

"I won't tell you all of it, but I'll tell you."
[Name] stared at their surprised faces, obviously shocked that she was alive. Several thoughts ran through the small groups mind, [Name]'s too. The pictures of her being swallowed up by the bearded Titan still lingered in her head. It was a horrifying experience, the thought of dying within the hands of the Titan. It scared her, but she would of died with her friend Eren, with someone. Better to die with someone than no one, right? she thought. [Name] looked at her friends, who were recovering from their gawking. "You better be listening, because we need to hurry."
[Name] opened her eyes again, and still felt the weight of Eren in her arms. Her eyes widened as she barely saw the pinkish walls of skin fly past her. Darkness was around the two cadets, and she couldn't tell where they were heading. Her gr
Storms [Levi/Reader]The rain pelts your skin, leaving your hair dripping and your body shivering, but you can't seem to pull yourself out of this trancelike state. Your eyes stay locked on the sky, only looking away to blink the pesky liquid out of your eyes. It's raining torrentially, and you know that it's only a matter of time before the black sky is lit with the -- and there it is, the crash of thunder, accompanied by a bright flash of lighting. You stare adamantly at the place where it appeared to strike - nothing rises from the impact zone.
You aren't sure how long you're out there for, but your teeth are chattering and your lips are turning blue. Your civilian clothes are doing nothing useful - they cling stubbornly to your skin, despite how many times you peel them away. But you can't go inside. You can't until the storm is gone, because until then, you won't be able to relax, your muscles won't be able to unwind - you would be nothing more than a huddled
