I want to talk about this.
I want to talk about the determination in those eyes.
Sasha knows she’s scared. She has shown examples of that fright multiple times. She’s scared of change, she’s scared of exclusion and she’s scared as hell of titans. But one thing Sasha Braus is not, is a coward.
And to prove that fact to her father, she doesn’t only leave the forest to head out into the big scary world (or as scary as the world inside the walls get), she becomes a soldier. She becomes a trainee, forced not only to face those strangers, but to socialize with them, live with them, adapt to their way of living. And as a soldier she signs up for a lifetime duty away from her beloved forest. From her beloved clan. A lifetime duty to interact with all those strangers.
And on top of that, she doesn’t settle on becoming a mere Military Police, settling in a comfortable life inside the walls. No, she becomes a Scout. The one thing Sasha Braus is most afraid of is titans, so what does she do? She becomes a Scout, signing up to face titans on a regular basis. Why? Because Sasha Braus is not a coward.
And how does she deal with being a Scout? She kicks those suckers asses.
I just have so many feelings for my beautiful hunter princess and I will personally kick your ass if you reduce Sasha Braus to a simple, food loving maniac.
