The Curious Case of Benjamin Button EreRi AU.
I’m hoping you’ve all seen the movie, read the book, etc. I’ve only seen the movie, sorry.
If you thought other AUs were painful, you’re dead wrong. Levi’s born as basically an elderly man. When he is 7 years old, he’s still quite old, has to use crutches or a cane. Needs other people to bathe him, clothe him at times. The person who finds him can either be Hanji, Erwin, etc.
Later in his still old/mentally young life, he attends a party. There, he meets a little boy with painfully lovely green eyes and a smile that’s utterly infectious. They become friends slowly however. Despite his age, mentally and physically, Levi is still Levi. Bitchy, irritated, selfless, etc.
There’s always that one prostitute part. Erwin takes him to the place because, hey, they’re bros. Levi’s a virgin, of course. Yeah. That person can be whoever. A nice, kind soul. Levi looks a little older but because he’s like 17 mentally he just fucking takes off. That poor lady, oh man. At least he was good.
(I’m leaving a lot out gomen it’s been a while since I’ve seen the movie.)
Levi looks about 50 or so now. He meets the boy again. They go out for dinner. Something about that kid is absolutely breathtaking, Levi cannot get enough. Eren’s definitely feeling the same. Kid’s about maybe 19 or 20 something. Talk about age gaps.
There’s the part where they go to like a beach and bang a lot. Like a lot. They could probably adopt a kid or something. Maybe not. I’m changing up the story but you interpret it how you want, of course.
Here’s the painful part, should you dare to read:
Because of the strange disease/illness/thing that Levi’s got, the older he gets mentally, the younger his body gets.(Obviously) Fast forward again, till he’s about 50 years old in actuality, not for his body. He would be a child. Eren would be quite old, though. Levi slowly loses his memories the older he grows in his mind.
And it completely breaks Eren’s heart. He may cry a lot, and the little boy with bright grey eyes will tip toe up to him and sit on his lap. Wipes the tears away from those blurry teal orbs.
THE IDEA IS REALLY ADORABLE but tbh I fail to plan out the panels nicely in my head so it’s rather difficult for me to draw it out ;;
I can make shitty animation of Levi patting Eren on his head though! :D
