YES OMG. All the demi headcanons. It’s just so fitting for Maka and Soul (and Soul could possibly even be pansexual, wink wonk) and UHHHGG yes the representation for these sexualities are seriously lacking. To me “Maka” or “Soul” sexual essentially translates to demi (like is there a noticeable difference anyways?? *laughs for 5,000 years*).
There might or might not be fanart of this. Who knooooows. *breakdances*
OMG YES DEMI!MAKA AND PAN!SOUL. They give so many hints about Soul not caring about the body and more the soul, and Maka only being able to confide and form relationships with the people she knows in and out (aka Soul). But it’s an interpretable thing, so I’m glad I’m not the only person who thinks this way!! Thank you sweet anon for making my day. 💕✌️✨
YAAAAS SHIIAN U GOT MEEEE
how i feel bout this character: fuckin hero of my life. i can empathize with her love of being a good student and drive to succeed in everything she does, and i envy how she stands for no shit (even though she has such an expansive and welcoming heart). at times im a little confused of her leaning towards outward violence to solve some issues, but part of that is due to me not being able to lift a single finger to fight (in any sense of that word) for myself. you could say i have something to learn from her! but she does tend to annoy me during some parts of the manga.
also, putting your undying trust in someone is really, really hard. opening up your entire soul, pushing aside your second guesses and what-ifs to make room for someone who has the chance to make them disappear, that is not an easy thing to allow. to be bare, with all your ugliness and hurt and promise just right there with no walls to hide behind. but Maka did it, and though she didnt wield a sword or slay a keishin, it was one of the bravest things i had ever seen.
all the ppl i ship romantically w/this character: its a fucked up ship
and that’s the whole point goddammitbut i ship her with Medusa. on the hEALTHY relationship list would be: Soul (my #1 no one can never move from my shipper heart) and Tsugumi.
Tsugumi being my second choice for the sole reason being that Tsugumi without hesitance tells Maka how freakin awesome of a person she is and Maka just really wants to make a difference with Tsugumi, u know, teach her what she values to be important as a member of a weapon/meister partnership, jUST TEACH THE PUPPY FRESHMAN HOW TO ACHIEVE HAPPINESS AND PEACE WITHIN HER PARTNERSHIP BECAUSE IT’S A GOOD THING TO DO!!!! and she is probably the only main character of the original soul eater series to be genuinely concerned for Tsugumi’s well-being??? going out of her way to tell her dressing in a conservative school uniform is cute and okay? providing her a drink and note to cheer her on for making it past the school’s shitting ridiculous stairs of doom, after barely meeting her? giving her a treasured and well-loved book of hers that even SOUL had a hard time convincing her to let go of? and Tsugumi just recognizes Maka’s hard work and respects her so so much and dang it Maka feels wonderful knowing that someone recognizes how hard she’s worked to be a good meister and person! it would be such a good relationship for both parties GODDDDD.
my brotp for this character: Black*Star, her super annoying best friend and brother-figure since they were in dIAPERS. BEATING EACH OTHER UP ON THE PLAYGROUND AND THEY STILL NEED CARSEATS. BEATING BIG KIDS UP FOR EACH OTHER CAUSE THEY DON’T LIKE THEIR SOUL-SIBLING BEING “BULLIED” BY PEOPLE THAT DON’T INCLUDE THEM. THESE TWO R U I N ME.
UNPOPULAR OPINION OH NO: maka is demisexual! which means only sexually attracted to those whom she shares close emotional bonds with. think about it! in the lust chapter in the book of eibon, she was the few of the first to immediately change back to her original gender, due to her libido having little to no noticeable influence on her. so, her carnal urges hold no control over her when confronted with aesthetically or physically appealing people. the only person she
appears to beattracted to, blushes for, asks to be called nicknames around, and earnestly tries to understand on an emotional and spiritual level, is Soul (aka her weapon/partner/best friend/single person on the planet that knows her as much as she knows herself)!
what i wished would’ve happened to them in canon: um, when she finally had a chance to hug her dad in the last chapter, tell him she pretty much fucking lost it when that sea of black blood nearly took him from her forever, that he was a pretty shitty person sometimes but hey, so was she, it must run in the family right? and that they could learn to be a better family together and work on rebuilding the world they just saved? yeah that crucial moment??? it could’ve happened instead of Maka’s out-of-character ignoring him and going to passionately hug Marie. cause oh yes, Marie by far was the first thing on her mind before, during, and after the battle on the fucking moon.
