What Would You Do? The Return of the Titans

Step One: Die horribly

[Ed. Note: What Would You Do? is a new column run by our newest contributor Lindo Korchi, examining popular scenarios from anime to develop a proper plan of action (or inaction) for any situation.]

Considering all the chaos that Eren and the citizens faced during the Titan's breach, I find it difficult to imagine how it would've played differently if I were in the situation. While easy to brush off the thought, it's still an unanswered question: How would I deal with the events of the Titan's return?

For one, scream. That's for sure. Scream, run, and jump -- hopefully, no one would confuse my terror for a celebration. However, it's pointless as I'll simply be swallowed alive by a Titan who thought I was begging for attention.

So how would we deal with the return of mankind's greatest foe? First off, I won't be playing the hero. Considering that the airports and taxis will be out of service, I'd have to find my own way out of the city. For the heck of it, let's just say this is based in Athens, Greece since it sounds much cooler. The problem is finding a way to escape to the outskirts of Athens without being hindered by the crowds who are fleeing towards that same direction for safety.

My first reaction would be to go down the sewers for safety, but assuming others will do the same, it won't be long before the Titan's catch up. While I would love to find someone who has a helicopter, as seen in the Day After Tomorrow, those odds are like playing the lottery and I can't rely upon it. Though, if I did "win", then awesome. That wraps up this article. Goodbye and good luck. But it's unlikely.

Whatever the plan, it has to be original; something that the masses aren't doing, which is exactly why I would keep calm and hide under some of the debris. As everyone is running and screaming like lunatics, the Titans will be too focused on them rather than looking for me under rubble.Taking this approach takes serious bravery as you're essentially "leaving yourself behind." If that weren't possible, I'd try my best to go under the earth, as I'm sure an earthquake would occur, or at least, a sinkhole formed. Tucking myself there (though it can't be too deep) may help.

I wouldn't climb to any high place since it'll just make me more of a target and stand out before the Titan. Thus, the helicopter idea may not be a great one after all, depending on the distance. At the end, keeping silent and tucked away in the sinkholes or debris would be my way of surviving. All other options that I've come up with just places me with the masses, and that's where the Titan's full attention is at. But if my strategies failed and the Titans managed to find me, then I'll have to unleash the mightiest Spartan kick I can give. After all, I am in Greece.
