Reader x Levi - A Guide to Talking to Your Crush

Warning for language





The art of the subtle glance

You walk silently in the hallways, making your way to your office on the other side of the Survey Corps castle. A second pair of footsteps joins you in your own. They gain on you until Levi walks next to you. The two of you walk next to each other for a minute without speaking.

         Your eyes wander to glance at him a few times, hoping to catch his attention for a split second. The first few times, he doesn’t pay attention to you, but then his gaze flickers to you. You give the corporal the biggest of smiles that you can manage. A chuckle scratches the back of his throat and he takes a sharp left, walking to the west side of the castle… and the opposite direction from you.



Eye contact

Erwin asked you to trade seats with him, putting you across from Levi. He’s drawing tornados on the supply report in the margins. Yes, it would be considered weird and perhaps even creepy for you to be staring at him so intently, outlining his facial features with your gaze.

         At one point, his pencil ceases its movement and his head tips up to look at you. With only a second’s delay, you turn your neck and pretend to be very interested with the file cabinets on the far wall. Sighing slightly, Levi returns his attention to his drawings.



Be observant

Levi rummages through the closet, making loud clattering sounds in his wake. A broom flies out of the small room, nearly hitting you in the head. Instead of calling him out for being a careless idiot, you stop and stand quietly behind him. Curses roll of his tongue and he even manages to knock his head against one of the low hanging shelves.

         “Where is that fucking bottle?” he asks.

         You look at your feet and notice a lone container of liquid soap. Picking it up with your left hand, you tap him gently on his shoulder.

         Not expecting you to be there, Levi jumps back slightly and only relaxes when he sees it is you. And his cleaning material.

         “Thanks” he mumbles, taking the bottle and stomping off.



Try to talk to them

The door to the library closes behind you and clicks softly. Where is Levi now?

         In the back, east corner, you notice him pulling out old records from many years ago, probably looking for something in particular.

         Tip toeing towards him, you reach to tap him, but then pull back.

         Scolding yourself internally, you try again, only to chicken out once more.

         It doesn’t help when you are only a fraction of a millimeter away from Levi when he turns around. His scowl isn’t as strong as it usually is, but he does seem surprised to find you standing so close behind him.

         “If you’ll excuse me,” he whispers, side stepping around you to leave the library.



Be cool

Levi scoffs at the sad attempt the entire 104th training squad at a reverse hook kick. Nearly half of them fell over, while the other half simply did not carry out the correct drill.

         “Like this, they would be better titan food than actual soldiers,” the man comments, turning towards you.

         You blink at him a few times before laughing at his comment.

         His harsh gaze makes you stop. “That wasn’t a joke.”

         Never in your life had your mouth closed that fast.



Surprise them with small acts of kindness

You hold two cups of tea and walk towards Levi’s office. It had taken you about four and a half times to get this tea just right. Hopefully he’d like it.

         The door to his office opens and he walks out with his own cup in his hands.

         Hiding around the corner so that he wouldn’t see you, you exhale slowly and take a sip from the tea. You nearly gag on it.



Force them to notice you

Hanji is late to the meeting, again.

         Everyone is in conversation but you and Levi. You decide to try and entertain him.

         Moving your head back and forth like a pigeon, you open your eyes as wide as you can and stare at Levi.

         It takes him a moment before he notices how ridiculous you look. A smile creeps across his face before he clears his throat and returns to his usual scowl.



Ask them out

With a deep breath, you force yourself into the blinding light of the afternoon and head over to the large oak tree in the far corner of the field. Levi sits his with his back against the trunk and a book in his lap. A breeze tugs at his hair and he stirs slightly when a leaf falls on his page.

         You open your mouth, but it is not your voice that speaks.

         Hey there, Corporal. What are you reading there?”

         Nevermind.

         Chicken out.

         Crawl under a rock.

         Die alone.


         Tears well up in your eyes and you turn away, running back towards the castle as fast as you can. You dart away too fast, missing the long moment Levi watched you turn away with large eyes, wishing he could go to you.

         "Another time, Petra. I need to speak with (F/n).”
ITS KINDA SAD

Take that you Petra! MUAJAJA :evillaugh:
I almost feel bad for poor Reader-chan and her failed attempts to be noticed by her crush. Well, I would feel bad for anyone if those things happen in a regular life!
But I really liked this story! It was amazing.
You really did take into consideration how Reader-chan would feel after every single action and how broken she would feel after realizing that she can't do the things she wants.
Amazing job as always! I loved this :heart:

Nope ~ this was a one-shot
but the message is that you 
never know what your crush
might be thinking! The rest 
is for Reader-Chan to decide~
