Attack on Titan and the Walnut - Symbolism
Why the walnut?
While I was driving to student teaching today, I listened to “The Great Escape” by Cinema Staff. After some thought, I wondered why the animation staff decided to show a rolling walnut for the beginning and ending of the end credits. This led me to do some research regarding walnuts their symbolic meaning.
Various websites state that many folktales and stories use the walnut to symbolize something precious hidden under a tough exterior. In this case, we can compare a walnut’s shell to the Walls that guard the cities, and the cities as the actual nut. While the nut itself may represent the importance of the walls and the cities, the task of opening walnut can represent an entirely different meaning. According to Jungian tradition opening walnuts can represent the“attempts to solve a difficult problem in which something valuable is at stake”. Woah there, that means that the struggle to open the walnut can represent the struggle to preserve humanity.
And here’s where it gets crazy. According to other websites, while it is a known struggle to open up a walnut, the individual never knows if the nut will be good or bad. If the nut is good, then it implies that the labor was well worth it. On the flip side, if the nut is rotten or bitter, this can represent failure and a person’s struggle on something worthless.
SO, because we see the walnut uncracked, we have no idea if the nut inside will be good or bad. My interpretation? Well, I like to think that the walnut represents the whether preserving humanity was worth preserving or a pointless, fruitless struggle.

And this is how hardcore the SnK fandom is.

I didn’t know walnut’s were so  metal

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am. 

You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.

Get up. Favourite lingerie. Favourite outfit. As much or as little make up as you like. Look in the mirror. Hair flip. I am a hot bitch. I deserve exactly what I want. I will never settle for less. Repeat until you feel it to your core. Make plans for world domination. Go out. Kill it.  

It’s so cute this got so many notes. I hope all you ladies feel happy with yourselves <3

This makes me so sad

My headcanon for the MCU-verse is the Frigga always wanted more children, but they only ever had Thor. Frigga smiled and pretended all was well, but there was always a secret longing for a child who was more like her. As much as she loved Thor, he was very much his father’s son and the golden child. He had no patience for magic and tricks.

And then her husband comes back from war with this infant, a child who could be a hostage against the Jotun, who could one day be useful, an ally on the throne of Jotunheim. But Frigga doesn’t see that. She sees a frightened baby, and takes him from Odin, and cradles him as if he’s her own, and the baby’s cries soften.

"He is a Jotun. You cannot forget that," Odin said, over and over, but Frigga only smiled and said, "No. He is my son."

Sure, I didn’t need those feels

I didn’t need my heart either
