Reiner X Reader- Too Late part 3



    A man put his hand over his eyes. A sliver tear slipped down his cheek.

   Why did it have to be you? Why was I so weak? How could I have done that?

    He grits his teeth and wipes that hand down his face. He turns his head toward the full moon above his head. Was it worth it? Was it worth her life? The man can't help but wonder. Was his mission worth killing the one he really loved? Sending her to an early grave, by his own hand, and lying on the way, so she will never know the truth. Was it worth it?

    He will know soon enough. When his own mission goes through and either succeeds or fails. But he will never, forget you.

    The man remembers. Always will. Unto death, he will remember your face. The way your hair shone in the sun. The guilt he felt when he told you he loved you; knowing that he was deceiving you. But he will remember your smile. The way your eyes shone whenever you looked at him.

    He loved you. But for himself, he lied to you. For my own bloody gain. For this mission. I couldn't let you know what I was up to; you were the only one in this important position. I couldn't tell you any different. I had to play my part. Did what you expected of me, but tried to stay far enough away from you so that neither of us got hurt too badly. It didn't work. Both of us got stabbed in the back.

    A sob threatened to escape his mouth, but he clamped down on it, and let his body shake with unvoiced pain. How he loved you... Yearned to tell you that. But he couldn't, because he remembers...

    Remembers your sweet scent. Remembers the curve of your back. Remembers your joy. Your sadness. Your love. Affection. Kindness. He remembers who you liked, and who you didn't. He remembers how much you loved listening to orchestras even though you didn't say anything. He remembers the bump on your nose. Your brilliant and intelligent eyes. Your melodious laugh. Your... Everything.

    He loves you, but he remembers... Remembers the look in your eyes as you bequeathed him your last, unspoken, parting words:

    I hate you, Reiner Braun.

    He could never tell you that he loved you now... You wouldn't accept it now. He lost his chance long ago.

    He was simply, too late.

Yes, a part three, because I am a hopeless fangirl and couldn't bare to leave my story on such a terrible note. Yes, I know its pathetic...

Anyways, I don't own this character, but I do own this story.

Part 2, hidden cause it's mature.

I will keep it as short as I can. You know how descriptive I can be xD Sooo, I loved this. It's good seeing things from Reiner's perspective here too... I can totally imagine him going through all of this, and still doing what needs to be done (that's Reiner for us, heheh) He could still kill poor reader chan (me, right? that bastard. I would at least kick him in the asdasfaesf) while loving her. Now, without joking... that was beautiful. I love all the things he remembered about her in the end. 

(That's what you get for messing with a reader chan, you titan shifter! Emotional chaos!) xD

Keep writing, you do it splendidly :)

THANK YOU!! Bunny Emoji-10 (Loved) [V1]  This means so much to me that you're following this and everything, thank you so much!!! <3
Haha! I'm happy that I got those thoughts down, yes! I was worried that it was going to come across poorly, and I'm happy that you proved me wrong!

XD Reiner is such a... I don't know what word I can use to describe this man that kills his love for his duty and mission.... 
And good for you! Don't go down without a fight!

You are welcome! Hug 

I've decided to go through your story (Reiner first, of course, than I will read about Levi and Erwin too) because I've finally finished my story and wanted to read something from you at last... since I had a spare time, finally. I don't particularly like reader inserts, and I rarely enjoy them, being an OC writer and fan... but there are some amazing writers who follow me and write great Reader x Canon stories, and now I can gladly count you into those now! ;) (Wink) 

About Reiner... well, here are some words... he's psychotic/murdering/sexy/traitorous/blondie beast xD Hahahahah xD

Yeah, never go down without a fight! (I know a certain corporal of mine who's like that... I think she gets that from me Love )

Aww, thank you! This means a lot to me that you're reading a genre that you aren't a huge fan of! Thank you. <3
To be honest, I've never actually read an OC writer before, but yours are amazing! ^^ But then again, I've never read an XReader before I became an SNK fan. And I only started reading fanfics, like, that past month and... I just came into every fandom late.

XD I love all of those words mixed into that man! XD Lol, jokes.

XD Aha! You're related after all!

You're welcome! ;) (Wink) 

I've only read fanfictions with CC x OC (canon and original characters) and Canon x Canon until the SnK. I've just recently discovered Reader insterts, and I was shocked to see how popular they were in this particular fandom :) (I am into fanfictions ever since YuGiOh! that anime discovered to me what fanfics meant, haha xD I was 16 or 17 back then xD) But the number of 'reader x canon' authors grow, maybe because people prefer 2nd character pov... but I just feel weird when I write that way. However, many people find it strange I write from 1st character pov, but it feels only natural to me since I previously write characteristic of the person I create, and then proceed to "get inside" their head... and write the story like I am in their skin xD I don't know, I just write everything that way, because if you do a story that way, you get to go deep inside character and focus on building their depth that way :) 

Hahah, I tried my best xDDD 

Related? Yeah, I feel like I am her mother or something, since I created her, hahah La love

Ah, interesting. Yeah, I didn't even get into fandoms before SNK, it basically opened a whole new world for me! XD
Yeah, so fanfics were a thing for you back then, and are still now. I find that XReaders are certainly very popular, and can make people much more popular even if you aren't very good at writing. 
I like your 1st person stories! I like that way of writing because, to be honest, there is a lack of it in the world of writing. Your style is clearly very efficient and works very well for you. And that's a smart way of doing it too. 

XD That's still a way of being related though! You gave birth to another you...
Ok, that sounds really weird. XD
galateabellator Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, I got that feeling too, some of those Reader inserts I stumbled upon were extremely bad but highly viewed, with a lot of people commenting... and I was like: "All right, people will never read my stuff... but, I can't go against myself". So, I wrote what I wrote - I don't know how smart it is, but I love hearing you think it works well xD I do plan on doing at least one reader insert myself, to see how that goes, I am just not sure when. :) I also plan to stick to my own way, and create OCs. I just adore them :D

It's true, we are related... all of my OCs have a bit of 'me' in them, I think all authors do that to their characters, consciously or subconsciously :) It doesn't sound weird, you are right, all of those characters are some kind of projections of my own mind, only altered into whole new persons and personalities. xD

I will stop spamming you further! :)
Bloodwhite-Wolf Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah, I completely know what you mean. Some have the worst grammar ever, with terrible escalation, and just an overall non-continuous story, but of course they have billions of watchers. And then there's very good stuff like you- that is often overlooked. 
But yes, keep to your own style and do what works for you! ^^ You can always do a 1st person XReader though. But yeah, making characters is so awesome! :D

Yeah, I find that it's easiest to base a character off of a version of you, or a person that you know in real life. Just to have a relatable character and a more real character. 

Please, no need to stop! XD
