I actually answered one for something I didn’t ship myself because I tell myself to be open minded and I didn’t mind it too much at all but that’s not the case with this ship because I do ship it. I do

who cooks normally?
Canonverse? I’d think Mikasa. Modern AU? I don’t really think either of them do. A little fanciful but I picture them really well off and having a cook and people who drive them everywhere—but on weekends they dismiss the housekeepers to have the entire house to themselves. They spend Sunday/Saturday mornings making a breakfast much too large for just the two of them. Mikasa walks around only wearing one of Erwin’s shirts and Erwin’s shirtless and usually the food and newspaper are forgotten pretty quickly because one minute Mikasa has syrup on her bottom lip and the next Erwin’s lifting her onto the table.
how often do they fight?
Not at all, I don’t think. They’re both workaholics and sometimes they don’t spend as much time as they’d like to together but work is work and it’s what they thrive off of.
what do they do when they’re away from each other?
Work harder? Probably pull all nighters, don’t get much sleep and survive off coffee—and when they’re finally reunited it’s like they can breathe again and maybe taking a day off to sleep in together wouldn’t be so bad.
nicknames for each other?
Erwin probably calls her sweet heart—he just seems like the type.
who is more likely to pay for dinner?
Erwin. Mikasa pays for her own things, of course—but Erwin always calls ahead and places everything on his card, always makes sure the waiter gives her a menu without prices and Mikasa is always kind of amused at how meticulous he is.
who steals the covers at night?
Mikasa. She doesn’t really like big beds, doesn’t like feeling all that space around her and Erwin’s bed is huge—she has a habit of rolling up in the blankets and pressing against the wall if she can. Erwin notices how much she needs to feel surrounded when they sleep and—after she’s done her cocooning thing—slips an arm under her and pulls her against his chest. (It’s the only way he gets even a little of the blankets)
what would they get each other for gifts?
Mikasa gets Erwin an Armani suit fresh off the runway because she needs to see it on him, she’ll never say it aloud but no one looks better in a suit than Erwin does. It’s incredibly expensive and it feels cool and soft on his skin and he lets her help him put it on when they first get it and she keeps running her fingers over his chest and up his stomach and the suit ends up a crumpled mess on the ground anyway.
Erwin has this thing for jewelry? He loves seeing the way the jewels glitter over her chest and collarbones, the way they drape over her wrist—mostly he gets her earrings because she’ll put her hair up that way. Something about her neck being exposed makes his throat a bit tight and his hands constantly clench and unclench
and sometimes she likes surprising him by wearing all the jewelry he’s given her and nothing else
Who remembers things?
Their lives run on the clock and even then they manage to forget anniversaries and birthdays (sometimes even their own). They recover pretty quickly—calling a few people and arranging a weekend holed up in the snowy mountains in a cozy cabin with a gigantic fireplace. Neither of them gets particularly upset when they do forget though.
who cusses more?
what would they do if the other one was hurt?
I think Erwin would be really surprised if Mikasa protected him and not much does. Like he’s on his knees and he’s lost so much blood and he’s pretty much done for and he hears her shout his name before he blacks out. When he wakes up he’s in bed and she’s feeding him slivers of ice and pressing a damp cloth to his forehead and his bandages are fresh. She’s gentle when she changes his sheets and he likes how cool her fingers feel when she lathers up his jaw and neck and presses the blade to his skin. She doesn’t say much but Hange tells him that once she saw him on the ground she moved faster than Levi.
Who kissed who first?
Erwin. He’d probably take to wooing her the way he does everything else and be a few steps ahead. Still, she’d make him fumble with how sharp and driven she was, how mysterious she seemed about herself. They’d probably had a lavish dinner and he’d walked her home with the champagne leaving their thoughts bubbly and a little fuzzy—and as they’d reached her door he’d just cradled her jaw and tipped her mouth up for his because he’d been wanting to see how she tasted since the first day he’d met her.
who made the first move?
Mikasa. I get the feeling work took a lot of time out of their dating/courting so he gets to his office one day and she’s sprawled over his desk and they make a complete fucking mess and Erwin really can’t bring himself to mind
who started the relationship?
Erwin. I definitely think he’d be the one to ask her out on dates, to establish that they were in a relationship and even ask her to live with him. Mikasa seems more skittish—she’d spend a night or two but always leave, keep only a spare toothbrush and change of clothes at his place. He finds out one day that she’s actually searching for another apartment—she can afford something spacier, a bit more luxurious and he asks her what her requirements are—and a week later he finds her a condo that’s quite literally a block away from where he lives and Mikasa is just?? I might as well live with you and he’s just ‘exactly’ and in the blink of an eye she has a key and there’s a whole team of people carefully packing her things and moving them for her and she wonders if he’ll even let her plan their wedding or if he already has that planned, too
