PEOPLE GIVE MIKASA SO MUCH SHIT and it’s funny, but seriously, picture that your parents were brutally murdered in front of you - Eren literally saved her LIFE, taught her to defend for herself, provided her with a new home and comfort and love when she was empty and hollow. HE SAVED HER FROM BEING SOLD INTO THE SEX TRADE. SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN RAPED AND GAGGED AND BEATEN FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE IF IT WASNT FOR HIM.
Her attachment to Eren is valid and she doesn’t need to explain why she is so overprotective, thanks.
not to mention it was literally Carla Jaeger’s dying wish for Mikasa keep Eren safe like holy shit do the people who give her shit ever think that maybe she isn’t just overprotective but instead she’s trying to fulfill the promise she made to the woman who stepped in as a kind and loving mother, after Mikasa had to watch her own parents get brutally murdered before her eyes?
