How does this exist? New arrival in the plaza!

Eren wasn't exactly looking to get lost, or go anywhere, really. He would probably count relief at the top of the list of emotions he was feeling, even if some form of dread lined right up under that as an immediate second. Was this whole thing going to work out? Being part of the Survey Corps? He would take anything right now, as long as he wasn't trapped down in that awful cell any longer. But he really had ended up in the best place. It was exactly where he had been aiming to be. That was foremost on his mind as he scrubbed at a bit of dirt on a floorboard. A thin layer of dust was already starting to build up on his clothes. It would probably get worse than this before he was through. Eren grimaced at that thought, not really bothered that he was getting dirty. There was just... a lot unknown right now. Was he going to be able to prove himself useful?

At a sound from the stairwell, he quickly shook off that doubt and started scrubbing again. Was that Levi? Slacking off would definitely ruin any impression he was trying to make here! He was almost done with this room anyway... Just a little bit more and under that table... then he'd be done!

It was a really naive thought to have, but in retrospect, Eren honestly wasn't sure how he could have concluded otherwise.

Everything was fine until he tugged his scarf up to cover his nose and crawled under a desk to get at a grimy and forgotten corner. It was hard enough to see without good sunlight getting into the room. It got way too dark though, and then there was something beyond where he was looking. Was the desk this wide? Did the underside go back this far? The more that he focused on the place in front of him, the bigger Eren's eyes grew wider. His eyes focused on movement... there was light on the other side...

By the time that he crawled through, certain that he was dreaming, huge crowds of people were passing by casually as if they had been there all along and he was the one barging in on them.

"Wha.... how did... it just...?"

His heart pounded rapidly in his chest at the sight before him as his scarf dropped from covering his face. He absolutely... had to be losing it. They were not just dressed strangely... He was not just looking at a place he was sure that didn't exist...! What were those contraptions with weird boxes?! What kind of furniture was that?! Why were they looking at him like he was the one that had come out of nowhere?! He was definitely getting a few stares.

Even if he was wearing all the belts of his gear, Eren didn't feel like the one oddly dressed. He had to be working too hard... that was it...

"I-I've gotta be dreaming this."
