Charlie Eats Dice for Power

it cracks me up that according to the marvel comics clint is taller than steve like

could u imagine steve meeting all the other avengers and hes reveling in how hes still the tallest human in the room even in the future (thor may be 6′6 but hes a god he doesnt count) and he gets to command all these short people

and then clint barton enters in all his 6′3 glory like “sup” and steve screams cause he still has the urge to assert height dominance like all short people do

There isn’t always a grantee that a baby SOUL will form after a merge has happened. There is just a chance that it might. It could take a couple many, many tries to successfully form a baby SOUL, so monsters have to try to not get too discouraged or it can affect their chances. 

Artificial insemination is something that was recently perfected in monster society as well. It can be done for a monster who wishes to have a child born of their magic without a partner or if a couple is struggling to have a child. It’s a less intimate experience, but it gives a higher chance of a baby SOUL forming. 

More than one baby forming is possible too! Both parents SOULS could have a child form within them, and could also have more than one at once within their SOULS. The parents SOUL can expand to accommodate the children’s SOULS as needed, but the more babies the harder it is on the parent. There are some monster types that are more “built” for having multiples (like some animal types) so it’s a little easier on them than other monsters. 

Accidental pregnancies are also possible. Two monsters could have just enough love for their magic to linger within each other and create a child. This isn’t super common, but does happen from time to time. Monster can also merge to create a child without having a lot of love for each other. If they have the right amount of intent to create a kid, then they can form one together. This use to happen often for monsters who did not have a lover but wanted a child before artificial insemination became a known practice. 

Also, the monster with strong or a lot of magic will often have less side effects than the others. Pregnancy tends to be easier on them and the babies growing magic will often grow stronger to be more like their parents own. But not all strong monsters may want to carry the child.

Monsters with LV could have negative effects on the child as they grow the longer they carry them, giving the baby monsters some side effects from the parents EXP. There are “positive” and negative side effects, the negative often out weighing the positive for most monsters with LV. Children born from a parent(s) with LV naturally have stronger magic, but could be naturally more susceptible to the effects LV has to personality and have a chance to be born with a greater ease to harm others than most monsters. These effects are not as strong as they are for the actual parent with the LV, but many monsters do not want to risk it anyway. So often, if the other parent does not have LV, they will carry the child more often, if not for the whole pregnancy, themselves. 

I think I covered most of it! Might have forgotten a few things, but thats why you can ask if you have questions! I’m glad at least someone reads my rambles in the tags. Makes me a happy Sol~

Nalu

**warning: this was supposed to a cute quick post about Nalu but I ended up getting too deep on Natsu’s side of things woops ¯\_(ツ)_/¯*

If you ever have doubts that Natsu and Lucy love eachother in the more than a friend type of way just remember drunk Lucy gets all blushy and excited & has hearts all around her because she thought there were 2 Natsus

call me crazy but I’m pretty sure you don’t react like this to people that are just your “friends”

you don’t just get heart eyes for anyone aight like she’s so in love 

also I’m not even going to began to talk about those bedroom eyes she gives natsu from time to time but here’s a post on that: 
http://lucielhyung.tumblr.com/post/159011956395/get-a-significant-other

remember wayyy back when Levy and Juvia tease Lucy about liking Natsu and Lucy responds with:

then fast forward to now

like she’s not even denying that she’s head over heels for him  hello
I really feel like at this point for her she realizes that she does indeed love him 


As for Natsu, for someone that is super expressive and speaks his mind, he doesn’t really show the same signs Lucy does. He hardly gets embarrassed or flustered, has no problem getting super close to Lucy’s face, or even seeing her naked except in the chapter 438 when Lucy’s towel fell off lmao he was hella caught off guard
It’s obvious that he does have a soft spot for her but is it the “more than a friend” type of way? Of course I could dig up anytime he’s been super overprotective of her, when future Lucy died and he cried, when he tried to kiss her bc Asuka was wanted them too, or even the time that him and Lucy fought Kain which people like to think is when Natsu realized he “loved her.” 
but I’m only going to talk about 3 moments (realistically 1 which you’ll see but I thought the other 2 moments were kinda significant) in particular that make me believe that Natsu does see Lucy as much more than a friend:

When Natsu dug up a rainbow sakura tree for Lucy when she was sick

Ok so this moment isn’t necessarily me trying to prove Natsu was/is in love with Lucy especially since this was still in the early episodes and I’m one of the few that believes they barely even acknowledged their “feelings” once Natsu returns from his one year training mission after Tartaros 
but can we just talk about how ROMANTIC this was?? and they both didn’t even realize it? Natsu straight up dug up a huge ass tree, put it on a boat, and sent it Lucy’s way because she was too sick to see them herself. when will your otp that’s actually canon ever

Natsu letting Lucy wear his scarf

OkAYY also with this one I knowww it’s just a cover and not even in the actual story BUT I still think it’s important because Mashima put it there for a reason!!
Natus’s scarf, the thing his deceased father made him, the thing he treasures so much that he neverrr has it off even when he’s swimming, the thing both Lucy and Gray made sure to get back to him because they know how much it means to him, THE THING HAPPY CALLED LUCY A MEANIE FOR BECAUSE SHE ACCIDENTALLY TOOK IT OFF WHEN SHE WAS TRYING TO KICK HIM OUT OF HER BED and now she’s wearing it 
idk I feel like Mashima putting this is his way of showing us just how much their bond together has grown

When Natsu thought Lucy died

Alright so out of all the Nalu moments in the entire series I feel like this is the one where we truly see just how important Lucy is in Natsu’s life. Remember Zeref revealed that they were brothers and that if he were to die, then so would Natsu. Natsu was going to attack anyway until a crying Happy stopped him saying that he didn’t want him to die and Natsu basically agreed to temporarily retreat.
Fast forward to the moment Natsu thought Lucy was dead, he cries and then END is awakened. And the first thing he wants to do is finish off Zeref. 
Natsu KNOWS that if he kills Zeref, he will die as well but at this point he doesn’t care because he thinks Lucy is dead. But really think about this. Natsu, the person that is always telling people to not give up and more importantly to LIVE, too not DIE for your friends but to LIVE for them, was basically heading into a suicide mission. way to be a hypocrite natsu lol
“You can’t stop me anymore! No one can!” that line really got to me because I feel like it just shows how hurt he was. He really didn’t care about what would happen to him anymore, where not even Gray could reach him.
He didn’t want to live in a world where Lucy didn’t exist.
