The Hunter

by Adishailan

The hunter is a monster, a titan, not a boy. This is a fact he has known for as long as he has lived in the forest, for as long he can remember. The forest is quiet but for the crooning of birds, the rush of misty water into the hidden valleys and the deep lumbering steps of his kin. That is until the day that changes everything. The day the humans came. The day he saw his human.

Laugh All You Want

by ruined pride

Dying and being reborn was unlikely. Reincarnating into an anime? Highly impossible. But what took the cake was the fact that a human body wasn't always guaranteed in another life. Whatever entity that did this must be laughing its butt off now.

Liar Liar

by Kenjiandco

Jean and Eren aren't exactly criminals, although there's a handful of IT and Business Affairs detectives scattered around the Upper Midwest who might take issue with the statement. They've just got...certain skills, that lend themselves well to certain tasks. Like finding out just HOW good that new security system your bank paid 50 grand for is. Making that pesky little indiscretion immortalized on the hard drive of a security camera just...not be there anymore. Taking payment in cash and not asking too many questions.

And then there's the new guy.

Marco's got a lot of skills, and some of them are pretty hard to nail down. But there's no denying he's a damn good actor...

My Beating Heart

by Lownly

In which Marco is a friendless college freshman with a penchant for creeping on the guy with the two-toned hair in his Astronomy class. Considering the fact that this is a jeanmarco fic, they'll probably end up becoming friends and, I dunno, maybe fall in love with each other. 
Sarcasm aside, this is a lame, unoriginal college AU complete with fun, fluff, and angst. Expect cruel canon references and half-jokes aplenty.

The story of how Marco Bodt offered up his beating heart to Jean Kirschtein.

All The Stars In Texas

by southspinner

Marco Bodt has always wanted to make the history books and has come to the conclusion that infamy looks far better on him than fame. Jean Kirschtein has always wanted to get out of Depression-ridden West Dallas and chase his dreams. A chance meeting throws the spark that sets Texas on fire, and what started as something simple becomes a dangerous game of love, lust, and the birth of living legends.

Kings Upon The Main

by avoidingavoidance

There are three kinds of people in the world: ordinary, extraordinary, and statistically improbable. Marco Bodt is one of the unlucky average joes, doomed to a long life of normalcy and predictability. At least, until a wild thing hurricanes into his life, someone who's easily a member of the third category in every way.

Marco's life won't ever be the same, certainly not after Eren leaves it standing on its head.
