Note: Inspired by this hilarious fanart of Auruo and Petra looking a little worse for wear. Anyhow, my headcanon is that these two are totally best friends, complete with pretend-couple jokes, I-hope-you-die jokes and a titan killing competition on every expedition. But seriously their coordination when it came to fighting was flawless.
Auruo’s first expedition has always been something he remembers with both fondness and utter embarrassment.
He literally graduated two months ago at the top of his class, but no fancy rank could prepare him for the misfortune of losing his freaking horse and being completely alone in the middle of some forest at night with titans lurking. Naturally, it’s only his luck that in the middle of his running around rampant in the hopes that he’ll find other members of the Survey Corps that he comes across a titan.
It’s small enough, a five-meter class and he almost brings it down all on his own, but one moment he’s going in for the kill and the next, he’s in the titan’s hand about to get his head torn off.
But then he’s not.
yELLS THIS IS INSPIRED BY MY ART OK THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT what a really cute lil fic :’D
