Oh my god what if though.
What if Erwin gets what he wants and Historia is made Queen in front of the entire Wall population?
And then just as she looks up to the bowing crowd with a shiny new crown on her head, she glances off to the side where Eren is standing with the rest of the squad. He gives her a meaningful wink and a thumbs-up, much to the confusion of the other squad members. Next to him Levi cocks a questioning eyebrow but doesn’t speak up.
And Historia recalls what was said in the mine.
Looking back to the crowd Historia parts her lips, a surprisingly strong voice ringing out and cutting off all applause:
"I’d like my squad leader, Captain Levi, to please come up onto the stage."
