BY YOUR SIDE – Eren x Mikasa
Valentine’s Day/White’s Day theme – contest entry, one-shot story
The light shone on my face, and I knew it was time to get up. I stretched my arms and suppressed a yawn. I didn’t feel like getting up today, but I knew that I had to. Soldiers didn’t have a privilege to sleep in like other humans could.
So, I rose in my bed, removing the locks of my messy hair from my face. I was wondering whether I should cut it shorter, since it was growing out so fast. Eren will probably scold me again for it.
When I got up, I quickly finished morning rituals. I washed my teeth, my face, I did all the morning exercises, then took a combat-shower. After that, I put my uniform, which took some time because of the straps… but again, I did it faster than anyone else from the unit.
Somehow, I would always end up being first. I showed up for the breakfast, taking a seat in front of a long, wooden table.

QUEEN OF SPADES – Levi x OC
Side story 1: The Lost Child
I was roaming the streets of the Underground City, hiding the knife in a piece of a white cloth. The air in my lungs felt staled, dry, filled with dust. It was cold even when I was constantly on the move, doing things that I never wanted to do, and meeting with people I never wanted to have any connection with in the first place. My whole body felt very cold, and I hated it. The stench in my nostrils and the damned layers of dirt on every step I took only reminded me how much I hated being part of this filthy Hell. I hated living so deep under the ground, when I knew there was so much more on the surface.
I didn’t have many good things to bind me to that ruined, abandoned and long-forgotten City I used to call ‘home’. Bad things majorly overpowered good ones, but those good things and good people around me kept me fighting… kept me going forward in that rotten Hellhole I was liv

PART 3 - The Strange Boy - Erwin x OC
I’ve met Erwin Smith when we were very young – actually, when we were still small children. Our first encounter hasn’t been very promising, if we take into account that our parents wanted us to befriend each other. When the Smiths arrived, I was upstairs, and the nanny was braiding my hair, so I was late. Mother scolded me for being rude to guests, but Erwin’s father only smiled, and said that was no problem at all. Erwin was silent. I bowed down a little to both of them.
“Good afternoon,” I said.
“Good afternoon, miss,” Erwin responded seriously, bowing down a bit too. “My name is Erwin Smith.” As expected. I was staring at his thick eyebrows before remembering that the staring at people, boys included, was rude. The laughter was too, so I didn’t laugh either. I fought the urge, though.
“I am Aurora von Amsel. Nice to meet you.” I offered him my hand, expec

PART 20 - COMMANDER'S ORDER - LEVI X OC
Commander was sitting in front of his desk. Major Amsel was standing next to the window, smoking her cigarette, and using her left hand since her dominant right arm was now covered in bondages. The chess table was spread on the desk, so I figured that Commander and Major spent their time in their usual way. I wondered who won, since it’s always a tough call between those two regarding intellectual games. And I mean that both literally, and metaphorically.
Levi sat on the sofa, crossing his legs in his usual manner. I sat next to him, not too close though… and I was waiting for Erwin, or Aurora, to start talking. They didn’t, and that made me pretty nervous, so I broke the silence first.
“Are you going to scold me for my actions, Erwin?” I asked, because I assumed that was the reason he invited me into the office before sending me into the interroga
