[Update: "Days are Gone" by seasideimprovisation is no longer on AO3.]

corbaccio — “Benediction” (E)
Futurefic in which Armin is commander’s aide and Eren a squad leader. Laden with work and frequently in Sina, Armin doesn’t get to see Eren often enough. So when he’s back at HQ after two weeks away, Eren comes to his rooms… and makes slow, intense, worshipful love to him.
Distance or time spent apart had never upset their relationship. Eren still found relief in that: he feared change in spite of its inevitability, as sure as the shifting tides that Armin still spoke of, simply because constants were so rare in his life. Armin was one of the few. The way he felt and fit around him was, thankfully, the same as always. Eren could imagine the curve of his waist, the dust-soft skin at the small of his back, but nothing could ever compare to the real thing right in front of him. The longing he’d tamped down for the past two weeks came back in a rush—the urge to shell Armin out of his shirt, to remind himself of every quirk and angle and sensitive spot of his body, was near overwhelming.
Searingly hot smut, with the fond familiarity of a long-term relationship. And, in this fic, Armin’s hair is long. :) 4,024 words.

anonymous — “you don’t know what you like” (E)
Not the first time for them, but the first time with any privacy beyond what they get in a shared bunk in the wee hours of the morning.
...“There’s nothing to do in the storage sheds.”

“Not even me?” Armin had said, turning to give Eren his very best wide-eyed, butter-wouldn’t-melt-in-my-mouth, I-didn’t-start-the-fire look.

Eren had paused, eyes wavering.

“Oh,” he’d said, “Oh.”
And then Armin is a total power bottom. XD 996 words.

Homicidal Whispers — “A Whisper, A Roar” (E)
Visitation Day is exactly what it sounds like. … It’s a joyous day for everyone except Mikasa, Armin, and Eren. Mikasa goes off to take out her sorrow and anger on a punching bag. And Eren and Armin — even though “they’re not really dating” — have some fun under a tree, despite the risk of being seen.
     Also, Jean is a homophobic jerk whom everybody else puts in his place. Eren does it with the most panache:
Defiantly, Eren lifts a strawberry from his plate. Fresh fruit like this is a luxury they’re rarely afforded and each student is only allowed two. He holds it to Armin’s mouth. Armin knows what Eren is trying to do; he’s making a statement. His eyes hold Eren’s as he opens up and allows Eren to feed the fruit in. When he bites down, sticky pink juice drips over his hand. Eren waits for Armin to take the last bite of the fruit before bringing his hand to his own mouth and lapping up the juice there.

Eren takes a moment to look around the room. “Anyone else have a problem?”
4,849 words.

phollie (larouille) — “shrinking violets” (E)
When they’re seven, [t]hey meet on a summer’s day where the heat hangs like honey and the sky looms with a threat of a storm. They haven’t been acquainted for more than an hour before Eren wants to marry Armin, and Armin thinks maybe they can do that someday when they’re older. Eren leans in and plants a rough kiss to Armin’s cheek, like the sealing of a promise, a pact.
     The author takes us through five more kisses between Eren and Armin: Innocent, happy childhood pecking. Still-mostly innocent kissing in the reclamation camp after they’ve quarreled. A sudden shift in the atmosphere between them when they’re fourteen and in training, and their fears of how it could change their friendship. A fiery makeout session in Eren’s dungeon bedroom under the courthouse (with an amusing cameo by Levi, who’s surprisingly sympathetic in his inimitable way). And then, after the 57th Expedition, a hurt/comfort–laced consummation of all that’s gone before. 9,646 words.

anonymous — “Let the Awkward Abound!” (M)
The title sounds cracky; the fic is anything but. It had been the two of them forever, or so it felt to Armin. And then Mikasa comes along, and it’s the three of them. Then come the years in the reclamation camp, hope and love blooming amid grief and privation. Training, with more opportunities for companionship — and jealousy. And, finally, Armin tending to Eren in the first-aid room after the sparring match with Annie:
He sees what he wants. I see what is there. All he saw right now, all he could feel, was Eren, his warmth and the tension running through both their bodies. All his senses were filled with Eren, his scent, earthy under the sharp smell of sweat, his breath, the pulse beating through his body, the salt of his skin a memory on Armin’s tongue. Right now, Eren was the whole world, and he didn’t want it to end.
3,191 words.

Raevell — “Campfires and Tents” (E)
He’s completely exhausted and sore after the 104th goes on a summer endurance hike into the woods, and Shadis screams at him while he lies inert on the ground. But Armin still manages to find himself entranced by Eren’s fire-lit smile, and warmed by Eren’s encouraging words in the privacy of their tent. When he wakes up in the middle of the night with Eren (and Eren’s sleep erection) pressed against him, he realizes he won’t be able to go back to sleep unless…
Turning his head again, he glanced at Eren, felt him still breathing against him, arm around him, and he felt struck with guilt at how the image and the situation provoked him. That guilt became a physical pain in his gut when he acknowledged what he was now considering. Was he really going to do this? Touch himself with Eren’s body flush against his?
Of course he is. 4,960 words.

sodas — “a moment on the moon” (G)
This postcanon fic is labeled gen but can be read as very tame Eremin. Both of them survive to see the outside world, but “see" is only figurative on Armin’s part, as he’s lost his sight. Eren, leading him out into the newly conquered wilderness, describes it to him while watching over him.
"There are all these purple flowers around us,” Eren says into Armin’s hair. The wind keeps blowing it into his face. "They group on really long stems. They’re like... columns. Big leaves, too."

Armin smiles off to the left and fingers a bit of the horse’s mane. “They might be larkspur,” he says. “When we get back, you should tell someone they’re here. I think larkspur’s toxic.”

“No one’s gonna be eating any flowers,” Eren says, a little incredulous. He can, admittedly, picture Sasha with a bouquet between her teeth, and Jean with a daisy sticking out of his mouth.

“Kids, though,” Armin chides, face turned forward. His chin is tilted up and Eren imagines that the sunlight is spread over his mouth and the bridge of his nose. Lucky sun.
Armin, consumed as always by his hunger for knowledge, seems to accept his own blindness better than Eren does. A sweet, hopeful fic, despite the note of angst. 1,067 words.

khepria — "Outsider" (Teen and up)
A short (813-word) fic set after Chapter 50. Annie's out of her crystal and in chains with her limbs severed and regenerating. Armin, on the other side of the bars, asks her questions. Annie's hardly at her best, but she fucks quite capably with his head.

anonymous — "Breaking Point" (Mature, for violence)
Armin drives off his bullies by making a blood pact with the powers of darkness, who grant him a large protector named Berholdt. Mikasa is alarmed; Armin reassures her that he's given the demons no more than one drop of blood, so that he'll have just enough power to protect himself. But then Shinganshina falls, and there's so much more threatening him and his friends — including the temptation to fall deeper and deeper into evil. WIP, up to part four. 3,776 words to date.

anonymous — "Kinsman" (Teen and up)
Written immediately after Chapter 56. Levi confronts Captain Ackerman while trying to rescue Eren and Historia — and loses his characteristic sangfroid. WIP (though likely to go unfinished due to jossing); 782 words.

anonymous — "Monster" (Mature, for violence)
In which Jean takes Annie's place as the titan in the Forest of Giant Trees and at Stohess. The brilliance of this fic is how the author takes Jean's canon traits and lines of dialogue and fits them perfectly into a villain role. WIP, 3,878 words to date, with the last of three parts to come.

anonymous — "Preventative Medicine" (General audiences)
When Carla contracts plague, Grisha desperately experiments with titan cells — and ends up vaccinating everybody in Shinganshina. As it turns out, the vaccine has side effects… 1,649 words so far (author may or may not continue it eventually).

anonymous — "Where the Heart Is" (Mature, for violence)
Eren fails to save Mikasa from the kidnappers, who kill him. She's being taken into the city when her captors run afoul of Levi, pre-Survey Corps. He and a few of his associates take her in. 1,988 words; never finished but still worth reading.

daikonjou — "clad in black, weeping Eve" (General audiences, shading into Teen and up)
Ten years later, Jean still carries Marco's bone in his pocket. And Marco's ghost stays with him. A well-written fic full of gut punches; the ninth-year anecdote in particular got me hard in the feels. 5,032 words.

Kyogre — "Mother of All Hangovers" (Teen and up — link updated from SnK Kink to AO3 version)
After graduating from training, the 104th get very drunk. And the last anyone sees of the Shinganshina Trio, they are in full 3DMG, and are hurtling themselves off Wall Rose, screaming something about seeing the world. They come back a week later. There are people outside the Walls, Armin concludes blankly. And these people apparently supplied them with clothing, miscellaneous travel items and a whole lot of booze — the empty bottles Eren retrieves pile up. Then it gets even better. 5,298 words.

Week 7 here! Find me at my personal blog and fic blog if you want to talk or rec stuff to me! 

1) 
TITLE: Disgusting 
AUTHOR: LithiumNails
SUMMARY: 
A dark high school AU, in which Annie Leonhardt is a sexual masochist, relying on her bitter rival Mikasa Ackerman to get her off and keep her secret. Unbeknownst to one another, each girl has a great deal struggling with the implications of their relationship.
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Mikasa/Annie
STATUS: incomplete, 14502 words
COMMENTS: Mikasa and Annie struggle with their sexualities in this fic- Mikasa figuring out whether she's gay or straight, and Annie accepting her own kinks. Maybe it's because I can relate, but I really, really enjoy this fic so far, and I think I would enjoy it even without the smut. 


2) 
TITLE: black dirt
AUTHOR: FerrisWheeling
SUMMARY: Nobody ever bothered to tell them that being scared was okay. 
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Reiner/Bertholdt/Annie
STATUS: complete, 11777 words
COMMENTS: A good argument can be made for this fic being platonic, but as a Titan Trio shipper, I like to think there's more. Modern AU about Annie, Bertholdt and Reiner's friendship from children to older teenagers, each of the three chapters from one of their points of view. Annie is as physically isolated here as she is emotionally reclusive in canon, living on an island with her father, and this touch and its effect on her personality is one that kept me reading to the end. 


3) TITLE: An Equal and Opposite Reaction 
AUTHOR: Island_of_Reil
SUMMARY: 
He knows a lot of ways to hurt her without drawing a drop of blood. She knows a lot of ways to strike back with words alone.
RATING: Mature
SHIPS: Levi/Annie, implied Levi/Eren
STATUS: complete, 3943 words
COMMENTS: In which Levi beats the shit out of Annie while she's restrained, but it's their back-and-forth banter that keeps one reading. Totally unpredictable with a flawless ending. 

4) TITLE: How You Have Changed
AUTHOR: AnonCat
SUMMARY: 
Armin had to force himself on the chained girl while grappling with his own tortured emotions. And Annie had to keep reminding herself that this was not the boy she had fallen in love with.
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Armin/Annie
STATUS: complete, 1805 words
COMMENTS: Smut, heavy angst, and rape mean this fic has a big trigger warning stamped across the front. Good for people looking for some major Armin/Annie angst. 

5) TITLE: Alleviation 
AUTHOR: JulyStorms
SUMMARY: 
Hange didn’t move, but he wasn’t surprised. The way she was lying there could only mean one thing. “Bleeding like a stuck pig?” he asked. (Levihan.)
RATING: Teen & up 
SHIPS: Levi/Hange
STATUS: complete, 1682 words
COMMENTS: I'd never really given Levi/Hange a shot before this fic. Who knew period cramps could turn into a fluffy oneshot? It's also unexpectedly funny, but I probably should have seen that coming. This is Hange and Levi, after all. 

island_of_reil: (Scherezade)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
Except for "Keep it On," which I'd rate as "Mature" per AO3 guidelines, these are all sexually explicit.

asmallwave — "Caught"
Armin and Jean are "a thing." Eren doesn't know that, so when he and some other Survey Corps personnel find them in the woods, he thinks Jean's raping Armin. Needless to say, it doesn't go well for Jean after that. And, after they're marched into the mess hall during dinner and have to Explain Themselves To Captain Levi, it doesn't go well for any of them.
     Jean and Armin are absolutely adorable in their clumsy awkwardness, Jean's solicitousness for Armin is sweet, and the smut, while not terribly explicit, is hot — well, until Eren rudely interrupts them, anyway. If embarrassment is your squick, you might want to pass on this one, but I found the ending funny. 3,416 words.

anonymous — "Fucking Eren"
Set early on in training. After fighting with Eren in the mess hall and thinking resentfully about how Eren doesn't deserve Mikasa's devotion, Jean goes off into the woods and tries to beat off to thoughts of Mikasa going down on him. But instead of imagining dark eyes, long black hair, and pale hands, he finds himself imagining green eyes, short brown hair, and tanned hands… 1,124 words.

anonymous — "The Perks of Being A Levi Flower"
Prompt: "Levi is a flower that Carla bought for Eren for his room and he watches Eren masturbate…. I have no excuse for this and I am not sorry." Neither am I. You get all that and "plantacles" too. Grade-A crack that is also quite hot. And in character, insofar as photosynthesizing!Levi can be in character. 861 words.
     ETA: There's a second fill there now called "Double Trouble," 1,726 words, also quite hot and quite funny.

gaygaygaygaygay0 — "Keep it On"
Eren/Jean, with Jean POV. Things are getting hot and heavy between them until Jean starts to take his pants off — and Eren protests. The reason? Nudity reminds of him titans and is therefore a boner-killer. The dialogue is perfect: "Eren, if you haven't noticed, I, unlike Titans, HAVE A DICK. It's pressing RIGHT against your LEG, and it's telling me that you're being fucking stupid right now." "Well, tell your dick to shut the fuck up because we're not having sex naked." Fortunately, Marco's there afterward to suggest a workaround to Jean. 909 words.

anonymous — "Dust Bunny"
Armin's on cleaning duty in an unused area of the barracks. He sees a clump of dust roll under a bed, chases it, and finds himself stuck there. And then he learns that this part of the barracks, and especially this bed, aren't as "unused" as he thought. Featuring Reiner/Bertholdt, Eren/Levi, Eren/Erwin/Levi (with the funniest line of dialogue you will ever see attributed to Erwin, I promise you), and, last but not least, Ymir/Christa. Poor Armin. Lucky us. 1,726 words.

anonymous — untitled
Armin sneaks into Eren's dungeon quarters after the trial and, after a joyful reunion hug, shamefacedly asks him to fuck him. Unsurprisingly for a couple of virginal teenagers, both of them are terrible at sex. Hilariously terrible. Sex in their case is a series of painful mishaps that culminates in them getting stuck together and yelling at one another. Which Levi overhears and decides to investigate. And then it gets even funnier (and more embarrassing for our boys). 3,265 words.

Variabile — "Get It Done"
On a rainy night toward the end of training, Jean and Eren are sharing a small field tent. Eren can't sleep because he has a boner. Asking Jean to go take a walk doesn't go over well. Jean, not knowing what the problem is, offers to help because Eren's his fellow trainee and you don't let your fellow trainee down (so to speak). And it's aawwwwkwaaaard.
     The POV switches back and forth, they're both completely in character, and their dialogue and thoughts are screamingly funny: Jean really, really, doesn't want Eren to cry, because if Eren starts crying then there's a more than zero chance that Jean will start crying too (he's just built like that, alright, he's sensitive and his mum says that's okay so fuck you) and that, that would be the worst, like, the only way to save themselves from the embarrassment of that situation would be a suicide pact. Oh, and there's some hotness, too. 5,729 words.

saekimchi — "Soggy Biscuit"
If you don't know what the title refers to, Wikipedia is your friend (or maybe it isn't). Eren, Jean, Connie, Reiner, and Bertholdt are the ones playing the game. Trust me, the ending is not going to be quite what you think it is. I LOL'ed all the way through, beginning to end. 1,483 words.
island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
Again, all of these are sexually explicit.

Ai Enmaxjigoku shoujo — "There's A First For Everything," Chapter 6
This is actually a collection of kinkmeme fills, one fill per chapter. In this one, Armin and Jean have desperate, panicky, and painfully hot "Oh, my god, I thought you'd been killed!" sex after a mission (presumably the 57th Expedition) goes wrong. Armin's badly bruised, and Jean's trying to be as gentle as he can, not always succeeding. ~1,780 words.

Raevell — "Running Water over Open Wounds"
Established-relationship Eremin; shower sex with emotional h/c. At the Survey Corps' remote rural hideout, Armin is soothing his aching muscles and troubled mind with a hot shower after everyone else has gone to bed. Well, almost everyone: Eren steps in. In this fic, Eren tops and is dominant, but after sex it's Armin who's comforting him. Really lovely, in writing and in atmosphere. 2,731 words.

anonymous — "Undertow"
Reiner and Bertholdt double-penetrate Armin. It's very tender and caring — They've been building up to this for weeks, and both Reiner and Bertholdt are anxious to make sure that Armin is okay with every single thing they do — and brain-meltingly hot. 2,800 words.

trashcan - "trusted"
Second-person POV for Reiner; set right after the 57th Expedition. Reiner is torn between the soldier's guilt of knowing that his squadmates still trust him and the warrior's guilt of not having killed them himself — and he craves comfort from them, too. Against his better judgment, he offers comfort to both Jean and Armin, who are both badly shaken (as well as Armin having been injured)... and it segues into a scorchingly tender threesome, with an unsettling, heartbreaking note of angst at the very end. 2,594 words.

stereobone - "Knickpoint"
Stereobone is one of those writers who can say volumes in the barest minimum of words. They write some of the fandom's best Eruri, and this one is their most moving IMO. Despite years of UST, Erwin and Levi have never become romantically involved. Now Erwin has lost his right arm, and he's dealing with it well enough. Levi, not so much; the ramifications of that loss keep hitting him squarely in the heart. The resolution of the UST hit me the same way while still being quite hot. 3,017 words.

phollie (larouille) — "honestly"
Deeply emotional first-time Armin/Eren, in the shower again but during training. The language is gorgeous and rich without ever shading to purple. Even the tiniest interactions are packed with movements and glances and breaths and sensations and feelings, bringing out the nuances of their characters, slowing things down so that I felt less as though I were reading fic about them than watching them act out the narrative. It's also the rare fic that features Armin topping or domming Eren, and comforting him in the face of Eren's insecurities, rather than vice versa — and in a way that doesn't downplay Armin's inexperience and nervousness. Oh, and there are some funny bits, too, with the other boys of the 104th toward the end. 12,056 words.

synergenic (Losseflame) - "Give and Take" series
Jean/Eren, set during training. One tag is "dumb teenage boys in love who are learning how to do the communicate," and it's true — and it's much hotter than you'd think. As various commenters have said, the atmosphere of intimacy is intense and atmospheric, embracing fear and anger as well as sweetness and love. Combined with how absolutely filthy Jean and Eren are in bed, it makes for some devastatingly hot porn. Both fics feature mild D/s with a hint of it becoming more explicit in the future (and I truly hope Synergenic ends up writing it).
  • "Twice Shy" (3,333 words) This fic gets serious when, while making out with Eren, Jean learns that Eren's never had his ass played with before. Eren is insecure as hell about his own attractiveness and dealing with more than a little sexual shame. This fic is packed with hot lines, but Jean's implicit Don’t be ashamed with me is one of the hottest.

  • "Knock on Wood" (2,417 words) We learn one reason Eren's so afraid to become intimate with Jean. Learning it hurts. But it hurts good. And it makes sense. Eren's fucking Jean here, and the dominance shifts back and forth between them in a totally believable (and HNNNNNGGGGHHH) kind of way.
island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
All of these are explicit.

anonymous - "filled" on SNK Kink
Eren gets off on Annie beating him up in public. The writing is beautiful, and the author captures Annie's voice well.

Zee - "Black Me Out" on AO3
They didn't manage to rescue Eren from the female titan. Mikasa, sleep-deprived and furious at Levi, picks a brutal fight with him that involves (among other things) him choking her with her scarf. It turns into... something else. Excellent characterization for both of them (and Armin too), and the fight is well choreographed.

Vee - "Lay Down" on AO3
Extremely dark power dynamics: Levi is more or less Erwin's possession. Bondage, beating, orgasm denial.

J_deandra_j - "Dawk's Suicide List" on AO3
Noncon, Nile Dawk/Levi and Hitch/Levi. Description cut for possible triggers. ) Brutal and well-written; Levi's voice is perfect here.

Nonnamous - "Never Stray and Never Falter" on AO3
Reiner/Eren, with background Ymir/Historia; canon divergence for Chapters 42-50. Reiner and Bertholdt chop off Eren's limbs to keep him from trying to kill them. Before they've grown fully back, Reiner and Eren end up having (consensual) sex. Gorgeous writing, amazing characterization (especially for Eren, wow), searingly hot porn, a funny line here and there, and an ending that is both horrific and heartbreaking.
