There are only two important elements to a great novel. The first is an interesting character. A character that you thoroughly know and feel will go a long way toward attracting a readership.
The second element is an interesting problem.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
A/N: Second last chapter! I can’t believe we’re already coming to the end!
Summary: Captain Levi Rivaille is second in command of the Survey Corps, a gang that is at constant war with the Military Police who, despite saying they act on behalf of the Crown and the people, are corrupt and violent with anyone who doesn’t fall in line. Even at twenty years old Levi is seen as one of the most powerful soldiers, with detached ruthlessness in his way of life. Which means that no one was expecting him to adopt a young eight year old boy named Eren, who is orphaned when the Survey Corps’ battle with the Military Police level the Shiganshina District.
Important Notes: There are multiple important notes at the beginning of the story, but the two main points people should know before reading:
- This starts off as Erwin/Levi established
- Levi/Eren is a slow building relationship due to Eren’s starting age
I need to talk about this. Tom Hardy’s choices on how Bane moves throughout TDKR are brilliant. Take this scene for example. Notice how Bane does not twist at the waist at all. He turns his body through the movement of his legs, not his torso. Why? Because of his back injuries. Anyone with a bad back knows twisting is a no-no. He doesn’t even twist his neck as he turns. Most people turn their heads first as they turn around, but Bane’s injuries would limit that. These limited movements also give Bane that wonderful overall lumbering appearance, like a big man. Bravo, TH!
