Author's Summary

Armin was convinced that it was the opportunity of a lifetime, but Eren just saw it as just another chance to fail. Nothing good could possibly come out of an internship in a stuffy office at Survey Corporation. Eren would have been content to sit and watch the remainder of his senior year pass him by. However, after one elevator trip, Eren finds himself questioning everything he thought he knew about life and himself.

Feedback on the Story

Oh, my goodness! Words are failing me now, because this was about the most beautiful ending to this AMAZING fanfic that I could have ever asked for. Seriously, I was in tears. I found this fanfic by chance, and I couldn't be happier that I did. It has inspired me to write my own fanfic, and it was just so intriguing, suspenseful, beautiful, realistic, and ugh!"[1]-- Dressed_In_Darkness, 25 Sep 2014

Recs & Reviews

Longest fic I’ve ever read, 60 chapters long, it turned me off at first, but after experiencing all the emotions, I read 50 chapters in A SINGLE DAY. There are many mixed opinions about this fic, but I must say, if you are in a good mood, don’t read it. If you are in a bad mood, don’t read it. If you like Eruri Brotp, don’t read it… yeah sorry for the weird rec, I feel this fic deserves a weird one >.> Tread with caution. (LOTS OF ANGST, bondage, past Eruri, explicit, modern AU[3] jayce-y on Tumblr, 2014)
(definite 10/10 like if you haven't read this then fucking google and go go go)

I thought I'd start [my recs] with my personal favorite Ereri fic off all time! it's fucking wonderful if you're able to bear through the angst. the characters are believable and there's never a dull moment. you'll definitely fall in love with them and the setting very quickly. Lutte is a fabulous writer and I can't wait to see a sequel for this masterpiece (maybe? please, Lutte!)

anyway, if you were to only read one fic from this entire experience, then pick this one![4]
