Summing it up, it’s
basically about the aftermath of drunk sex between Gray and Erza. I think
what’s the best thing about this fic is that, it’s actually quite
I think all Grayza fans can agree that, if Grayza were ever
gonna get together, they would have to
deal with Juvia and Jellal sooner or later.
And the way it’s written, both Gray and
Erza deal with the “double Js” very maturely in my opinion. Jellal and Juvia
aren’t merely brushed off, so I absolutely love that.
think it helps that this author also loves Gruvia and Jerza, so I feel like
they’re more careful with how they handle one-sided!Gruvia as well as complicated!Jerza in this story, to make way for Grayza’s development.
The writing isn’t overly
detailed either, so it suits my taste lmao :D
I’m pretty sure this is the
most popular Grayza fic on FF.net. And rightfully so imo :D
I really love how this story’s pacing and how natural the author developed Gray and Erza’s relationship. The beginning of their relationship is a little rusty, and I think the author based on Grayza’s dynamic from when they were kids in canon (kid!grayza was a little rough in the beginning right?). It’s super cute! And really in-character too.
Nalu also shines in this fic. They’re not merely a side couple thrown in randomly. Honestly this author writes Nalu’s dynamic very close to canon. And I love how Lucy is a teeny bit dense and Natsu’s thoughts are kind of a mystery like in the manga. But they naturally become good friends (and!! I love it!!)
And this fic has nice humor? Reminds me of Mashima’s classic humor. I find myself re-reading it once a month
Gray and Erza grew up in an orphanage together, but when Gray gets adopted by Ur, he leaves her behind.
Years later, Gray tries his best to find Erza again, even when Lyon and Ur tells him Erza might have forgotten him already. But he’s determined and ends up transferring to the same school as Erza, only for her to be cold towards him? SAY THIS ISN’T SO
8. Insufferable by theformulaofpudding (one-shot collection)
I’m gonna have to re-read this collection coz I forgot but there’s a reason why I’ve listed it in my faves on ff.net :D
There’s seriously a lot of great one shots in this!
My favorite is the latest chapter, where Erza’s trapped in an alternate universe, where everything is almost perfect - she’s a normal high school girl, she doesn’t have to be a wizard and constantly risking her life, and she has the perfect boyfriend, Gray. Where as in their world, Gray’s already returning Juvia’s feelings).
This one was really memorable to me because it’s quite rare to find a nicely written Grayza ficlet where it’s focused on Erza’s POV.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate what Hiro has done for us because look at this!!!!! That is Squad Goals right there!!!! We have our ships of Nalu and Gruvia looking all matchy-matchy 😏. We have Erza looking FIERCE AF. Gajeel is SMILING… Look at him!!!! Not to mention Wendy is all perfect and cute and adorable… I JUST CANT!!!!!! This gives me life!!!
