"I have such a pretty grand daughter,"
"You’re going to marry a good man one day,"
are things I have often heard
but never understood
because they think they have one thing
and i know i am another
and you can’t begin to fathom
how guilty i feel
for stealing that from them
and replacing it with something they
will never understand
like a thief who steals a diamond
only to replace it with
to be sold
to young couples buying wedding rings
and blinded by happiness
to notice the knicks and scratches in the false stone
and i can’t begin to understand why
i became the criminal i am today
things i am not good at
I am not good at writing.
Actually, I am not good at a lot of things
Like remembering where I left my keys
How many pages of that book I was supposed to read
And finishing things that I start
In fact, if you were to ask me
what I am good at
I would probably struggle to give you an answer at all
Because of this, I do not like myself a lot
But I like you
I remembered where I left my keys (hanging in the kitchen)
I remembered I was supposed to read to page 70 (Tuesdays with Morrie for Sociology)
I am still not good at math
I started writing again
I finished this

News Article/Feature (idk where in the story this will fit)
Born Again, Bodt!
Today, just outside of the walls of Trost, 104th Training Squad and now Survey Corps member, Marco Bodt—who was half-devoured by a titan—reportedly returned home, seemingly with a new body two days after being proclaimed to be killed in action. Literally.
So, was he really born again? Bodt enlisted into training two years ago as a biological male. Now, however, he takes on a more female body-type—confirmed now to be biologically female. Bodt says he still feels the same as before, and doesn’t want things to be any different for him.
”It was so weird. The last thing I remember seeing was the Titan that killed me. I looked it right in the eyes and I knew I was going to die. That’s the last thing I remember seeing before I woke up again in the forest outside the walls,” Bodt told Trost News, “You’d think I’d have noticed my physical changes, but I didn’t really feel any different.”
Mourning the loss of Bodt who was K.I.A., friends and squad members Jean Kirschtein and Armin Arlert, along with others, welcomed the 16-year-old soldier home with open arms, despite his new physical appearance. We interviewed Kirschtein, 16, and Arlert, 15, after talking with Bodt. Kirschtein, who led the group-excursion in which Bodt was killed, was asked his thoughts after he identified the remains of his best friend. He refused to give a response. Arlert, however, covered for his friend-of-few-words, telling Trost News that “we’re all really grateful to have Marco back. He was so brave to literally give his own life in exchange for Jean’s. We obviously have lots of questions about what exactly caused Marco to come back, let alone as a girl. For now, we’re leaving it to the squad leaders [Hanji Zoe, Commander Erwin Smith, and Lance Corporal Levi] to decide what steps to take next. Above all else, we are lucky to have someone so brave back with the 104th squad.”
The Hero will be rewarded badges of Honour and Courage for his bravery and willingness to give his own life to better humanity and save one of his squad members. All classes from all walls are invited to the event. The ceremony will be held next week in the Court House in Wall Sina after the leaders of the Survey Corps make a decision on what precautions to take in regards to Bodt.
Regardless, all of us here at Trost News are so excited to see what will come of strange case of Marco Bodt and what its discoveries can offer to humanity. Stop by the Trost News Center for Information Development for more information on this story as it unfolds. Another article in this matter will follow in next month’s issue of Trost News. Stay tuned.

o god i can’t believe i’m posting this thank jesus no one follows me
Marco Bodt, half-eaten by a female class titan, awakes in the forest just outside of the wall that had been recently breached by the Titans—Wall Maria. The Titan that has consumed Marco was later killed in a fight by another Titan over the remnants of a leg. The decaying cells in the stomach acid of the Titan (and Marco, open-wounded and not digested within the stomach of the Titan) transferred DNA between the two beings, causing the process of decomposition of the Titan’s body to slow, and for Marco’s body to begin to completely regenerate. After the Titan’s body completely decomposes around him, Marco returns to his squad members, hoping to be welcomed back with open arms and sighs of relief. What they learn next is a surprise to them all; Marco is now a girl. The DNA of the female class Titan that transferred it’s regeneration cells to Marco through his open wounds during the process of it’s decomposition and caused the lost portions if his body to regenerate reconstructed Marco’s genetic makeup in it’s entirety.
Now, the 104th Training Squad and leaders of the Survey Corps are left with questions that no one seems to know the answer to: Is Marco now a shifter like Eren and Annie? Can he control it like they can? How will his transformation affect his relationship with Jean? The rest of the squad members? Answerless and afraid, Marco and the rest of humanity’s bravest and strongest soldiers gear up to follow this new lead that may prove to be a new asset to humanity.
