Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.
Anonymous asked: Now that we've seen them together and in action a lot in the last few chapters, what do you think about Levi's and Hange's relationship?
Well, I’m a levihan shipper, if that tells you anything.
Ah, I think I’ve talked about them before, though. How they’re a really interesting duo. They’re complete opposites, but get along amazingly well— only bickering occasionally, and even that seems to be on a joking level.
I also think the Middle School comics have a few good examples of their relationship, because even if it’s set in another universe, Isayama still writes it. Hange and Levi are acting as Isayama thinks they would in it- their relationship in it is canon. And I don’t know if you guys have ever bothered reading any of it, but Levi looks out for her a lot. He gives her money for food when she wastes her entire budget on animal food for her biology club, and he even cooks for her to make sure she eats at all.
Even though they’re polar opposites, they look out for each other and work together extremely well. They even give each other pep talks(Hange comforting him when Levi became upset at the idea he may have been killing humans, Levi comforting her when she was so scared after Nick’s death, etc). So I think their relationship is positively adorable. Even on a platonic level.
Here’s the thing.
I read a lot of scripts. A lot. From professionals to aspiring writers to complete newbies. Features and pilots. Specs and treatments.
And 8 times out of 10 the fan fic that I’ve read over the last, oh, 15 years is leagues better than this stuff. It’s…

Third in the little series. :D If I had time (and if the anime-only side of the fandom cared more about him) I would have done Mike too but this was pushing it already, heh. Also transparent!
The final one from “The Big Three”!
(nobody calls them that, but I like too…actually it would be a good fit)
