Their Duet

lillybeth-13​ said: I would enjoy reading the celebrity selfie caption and cosplay au if possible [this was actually a pretty long and sweet message, but I’ve put down the part pertaining to the request.

Pretend you’re happy, pretend we’re fine
I guess that’s easier after all this time
Talk about someone else then look in my eyes
I know you still hold on to us inside
But we watched that butterfly fly


The boy pressed his face into an old t-shirt, wiping away the sweat dripping down his face before wrinkling his nose at the smell. He really needed to clean out his gym bag. 

He waited until Gray was looking before passing him a half-full bottle of Gatorade, which the other boy chugged without a second thought. 

“Gajeel must’ve been pissed today,” Gray mumbled, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand before tossing the empty bottle into the his gym locker. 

“No kidding, wonder what stick crawled up his ass.” 

Gajeel Redfox had been a senior on the team when they were only freshman, and now three years had passed and they were the seniors, meanwhile the alumni had come back to help the head basketball coach. 

Natsu thought Gajeel was cool for the most part, but damn did the man believe in running. 

And don’t even get him started on weightlifting days. 

Loke tossed his wristband at Natsu’s head, and the salmon-haired player was lucky the other boy didn’t have something heavier on-hand as he scoffed in disbelief, having overheard the pair. 

“I’m pretty sure the stick up his ass is engraved with the names of you two dumbasses!” 

Natsu rolled his eyes, peeling off his sweat-soaked shirt and pulling it over his head to get ready for the showers. “We’re not that bad to him.” 

“Dude,” Loke scoffed. “You’re totally that bad. It’s like you two try to piss him off.” 

A few of the other players on the team already had the hot water blasting full force, causing the rest of the locker room to begin steaming up. Loke pushed his fogged glasses up his face, rubbing his tired eyes. “And if I have to get up for another six a.m. practice as punishment for you two dicking around-” 

“Oi!” The boys all jumped- and their sore limbs immediately protested the sudden movement- when Gajeel’s booming voice began to echo through the locker room and bounce off the lockers. “Class in thirty, so quit your complaining and hit the showers!” He turned, grumbling under his breath about how they all smelled like shit. 

“And Natsu!” He added as an afterthought, standing in the doorway leading to the gym. “I mean shower. Rubbing the air freshener from your car all over you doesn’t count!” 

“I only did that once!”
