I've been meaning to drop you a message, I really enjoyed Paula's app and her artwork is beautiful. :) I definitely recommend joining the Discord server, if it's something that appeals to you.

does not play well with others
« on: May 18, 2020, 10:58:31 PM »


ANNIE LEONHARDT
SIXTEEN | CADET | MARLEY
ATHLETIC | NONCHALANT | RESILIENT

‹ FRIENDS ›
Ideally, Annie aims to make it to graduation - and beyond - without forming any close relationships.  Bertholdt and Reiner have the advantage of already being known to her, but even they aren’t immune to the walls she has built around herself.  Chronically bored, seemingly unfeeling, she shows no apparent interest in any of her fellow cadets - but that doesn’t mean she lacks compassion, or is actively unkind.  Rapport of a quiet, unassuming sort is possible with Annie, but at the end of the day there isn’t a living, breathing soul she wouldn’t sacrifice in order to make it home.

‹ ENEMIES ›
Just as Annie doesn’t seek friendship, nor does she seek enmity.  All she desires is peace, and the opportunity to plan for the next step of the Warriors’ mission.  That doesn’t mean there won’t be characters who take umbrage with her, especially given her cold, blunt demeanour.  Some might even resent the fact that, although she presents as lazy and disinterested, she still manages to excel academically.  Quietly proud of her abilities and skill, she could be incensed into some healthy rivalries.

‹ ROMANCE ›
If being a friend to Annie is a challenge, becoming something more is bordering on impossible.  Between her youth, brutal upbringing, and the objective and promise that hang heavy over her head, Annie insists she does not understand the concept of love.  Trust does not come easily, and vulnerability makes her profoundly uncomfortable.  To feel any sort of affection - platonic or romantic - is akin to weakness to her, and is something she will shy from.  But despite her best attempts to remain entirely aloof, Annie experiences unwanted stirrings of compassion for others, so there is certainly room for other feelings to grow.  I generally prefer for romance to develop organically through threads, but I’m also open to talking about potential plots. - Bertholdt Hoover worked his magic, so Annie is closed to romantic plots.

‹ THREAD IDEAS ›

  • All the Titan Trio goodness - past, present and future!
  • Annie is a master of hand-to-hand combat; she might be convinced to offer guidance.
  • Unbeknown to many, Annie has a sweet tooth.  Treats will buy her interest, for a time.
  • Apathy rolls off this girl in waves.  Perhaps a studious or passionate cadet is irked to see Annie slacking.
  • A group project?  Oh no!

(Just including a quick note to say I’m in the process of shaking off the rust after an unexpected hiatus.  I have a pile of other characters I still need to catch up with, so I plan on initially limiting the number of threads I throw Annie into.  Thanks to all you lovelies who have been so patient with me!)

*wanders in way after the party is over. like the cleaning staff are sweeping at this point*

I am also shaking the dust off and trying to regain some inspiration lol. So very dusty.

I can offer Mina (http://reluctant-heroes.com/index.php?topic=933.msg3609#msg3609). There is some canonical background between them and I think at least on Mina's end, she would have called Annie a friend.

Mina gets care packages from home and her mom and granny always include some sort of sweet treat. I'm sure she'd offer to share with Annie. Also, Mina is quick, but mediocre at hand to hand combat. She'd appreciate any help Annie could/would give her.

So...anyways. I'm open to anything you'd want to do and if you have ideas for any of my other characters - please let me know!

► Annie and Mina

Don’t you worry Quiet, the party is just getting started - we can shake off the dust together!  Also, I couldn’t resist including this lovely art I stumbled across the other day. :D 

I imagine Mina would be precisely the kind of person Annie would plan to hide behind.  Your girl is cheerful, upbeat, chatty - hopefully the sort to fill any awkward silences and tolerate Annie’s general lack of enthusiasm.  Although Annie would likely never admit it out loud, Mina’s courage in the face of fear and her desire to join the Survey Corps would be something she admires, though she’d probably try to discourage her from her regiment choice the closer graduation looms.  Ultimately, I’d love to see Mina become one of the people Annie is - reluctantly - fond of.  If there is ever a Crystal Titan rampage against the Survey Corps on RH (not going to lie, I hope there is), I see Mina being one Annie would actively avoid killing, which is about as close to friendship as it gets with her.

Annie is like a stray, you feed her once and she keeps coming back. XD  We could start with a care package type thread - maybe they’re bunkmates, or bunk near to one another? - or perhaps hand-to-hand would be an earlier interaction for them.  I actually think Mina might be one of the few that Annie would actively approach to offer help to.  Smol girls have to stick together!

Whoooo...shake the dust off party!

What a pretty piece of art! Thanks for sharing it. I've seen some Annie/Mina art on Tumblr and it's always very sweet and sad. I do think Annie had some care for Mina. If I remember correctly, Mina is the body Annie is apologizing to.

I won't speak for Annie, but Mina is one of the rare characters that is shorter than she is. Per the wiki, Mina is about 4'9 lol. I know that when I meet a person who is actually smaller than I am...I'm always like...come stand by me!

I think starting them off as bunkmates and Mina getting a care package with cookies or something would work. Maybe Mina is on the top bunk and Annie just sees this hand come down with a treat, "What one!?" That could lead to a conversation about how Mina has seen Annie fight and wishes she could be better. Annie is someone Mina would want to be like in a way. She is someone Mina would admire.

I think...and this might be way way off in the future...if/when Annie is discovered and if Mina is still around - Mina might want to be the one to confront/help confront her. Or even try and take her out. That is far off though I think.

Yay short girls! Get Historia in here and they can complain about high shelves and pants that will never fit!

Party hats for everyone!! :D

There are some lovely pieces of Mina and Annie!  Often sad and sweet, as you say.  Typing my last post, I recalled the scene of Annie apologising to Mina’s remains too.  Annie is all wide-eyed and glassy-looking in the manga, there’s no way she wasn’t affected by Mina’s death.  I think there is care there too.  If I remember rightly, the girls are often seen in the background of scenes in each other’s company, so I get the sense they spent a good deal of time together.

4’9” - how tiny!  Annie will feel tall for the first time in her life!

Aww, Mina is such a sweetheart.  That scenario sounds absolutely perfect to me, Quiet!  It ties the hand-to-hand business in nicely too.  Do you have any preference on who starts?  I’m easy either way!

I think it would be great - and really powerful stuff - if Mina was one of the ones to confront Annie if/when the time comes.  It’ll be interesting to see how Utopia affects the Titan Trio’s scheming, but I get the feeling a confrontation is inevitable.

Haha, that would actually be brilliant!  Smol girl squad, unite! <3

We get hats! Sweet. :-)

Annie/Mina

I was surprised when I read how little Mina was lol. Had to double-check! Mina will always be the smol in a smol/tol ship lol. Annie and Mina did appear together a lot. I wonder if Annie ever wished she met Mina under different circumstances.

That works for me. Mina would get a care package every week or so and she would always be happy to share with Annie. And if they ever have cooking duty together, maybe Mina could teach her to cook/bake some things.

If you want to start the Annie/Mina thread, I will be happy to start the Eld/Ruth thread when we figure out what we want to do with that one.

Perfect, I’ll get the Annie and Mina thread started ASAP - I should have it up tonight or tomorrow!  I’ll post in Eld’s plotter now too, basically to say if you could start their thread that would be fantastic. :) 

Honestly, if Annie could change just about everything about her life, I imagine she would.  I bet it’s crossed her mind, what it would have been like to meet Mina in different circumstances.  Mina is good people, Annie sees that.

Oh, being assigned cooking duty would be fun too!  I think Annie is a passable but by no means exceptional cook.  And she’s an abysmal baker, which is a shame given her sweet tooth, haha.  Hopefully Mina could help her improve on both fronts!

OOC: Annie is my favorite character from the verse so it's a long time dream of mine to have an RP with her! :D

Friends: Raze struggles with making friends as well, he struggles with friendships to begin with because of his fear of losing the ones he holds dear. Even so, he gets along with people whom he finds a common ground with so maybe he would get along with Annie as well. Even if they won't become friends I think the two of them would be able to form a positive relationship with each other. :)

Enemies:
Raze is not someone who seeks enemies and given that the two of them have some common points in their personalities as well I don't think they would become enemies aside from a healthy rivalry between them as both of them are aiming for the MP. Even so, I don't think that Raze would seek a fight or conflict with Annie given that he would like to ask her to teach him her hand-to-hand combat style :)

Theard ideas:
- Annie is a master of hand-to-hand combat; she might be convinced to offer guidance.

That's the one that I would like to suggest ^^ In Razes bio it's stated that Annie taught him how to fight in hand-to-hand combat ^^ Since we agreed that I can leave this part in I think it would be nice if we would be able to do a thread about it as well! ^^

► Annie and Raze

Thanks for taking the time to type up your thoughts for these two, Sora!  I really hope I can do Annie justice. :D 

I know we’ve talked a bit on Discord, so this is really just to finalise the details.  It always takes something for Annie to invest or show genuine interest in other people, and for Raze that can be him surviving a hand-to-hand class with her as his partner.  I know you said he has some basic moves, but she won’t go easy on him (assuming slacking isn’t an option this time around, haha) and she’ll be impressed with his perseverance if he keeps throwing himself at her.  I’m still not entirely sure about the longevity of their training sessions - Annie is very lazy and trying not to make friends - but if Raze was keen and proactive, he will surely get at least a few lessons.  Then again, Annie is bored a lot of the time, so maybe sparring with Raze could be a distraction?  I guess we’ll see how they get on once we get their introduction thread established. :)  Have you any preference on who starts?

Not related to anything, but I love that they both have a shared love of hooded sweatshirts. ^^

Annie and Raze:

I'm glad I did!  :D Can't wait for the RP! ^^

Well, Raze can be pretty stubborn and if he encounters an obstacle he will try and force himself until he can overcome it somehow  :D So I'm pretty sure that even if Annie will go hard on him, Raze will not give up, and he will be more than impressed with her and her abilities! And since he's aiming for the MP he's more than positive that he will have to face more humans than Titans, thus Annies technique can be crucial for him if he can make it into the MP! :D I hope that Raze will be able to pique Annies' interest, and get her to teach him her special hand-to-hand combat technique! ^^

To be honest I would be happy if you can start since I simply love your starters! :D

Ahhh yes, that part is a part from me since I love hooded sweatshirts myself! :D

That sounds great to me!  We all know Annie appreciates those people who can keep getting back up again and again, even when the odds are not in their favour.  Plus a familiar face in the MPs might be nice, further down the line, not that Annie would ever admit it.  I’ll get a starter written for us as soon as I can, hopefully I’ll be able to get something posted tomorrow - I’m looking forward to this! 

Oh man, agreed, hoodies are hard to beat. <3
