**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
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.
I just watched a french fry challenge on YouTube where you are blind folded and have to guess where different fries come from, and now I want an AU where Stiles is a vlogger who challenges Derek to the french fry challenge and if Derek loses, he has to go on a date with him.
Despite being a french fry connoisseur, Stiles loses the game. He tries to play it casual, tries to be a good sport about it, but he’s actually just plain miserable that he won’t get the chance to take Derek out on that date and woo him. He knows it’s stupid but he just….really wanted the chance to prove to Derek he can be romantic and deserving of him and all that couply jazz. He wanted one setting where he didn’t have to be careful about flirting with Derek too obviously. One night where he could just look a him without feeling self conscious when Derek caught him and chalk it up to the “Stilinski date experience” or something equally as pathetic.
Basically, he just wanted one night to know what it felt like to hold Derek Hale’s hand (if Derek would have even let him).
Derek leaves and Stiles mopes for the rest of the day, trying not to feel sorry for himself and utterly, utterly heart broken. Again, stupid, but he’s been pining after Derek for years. He’s considering going to bed early when his door bell rings and standing there, dressed in a fancy cardigan with a bottle of wine and - several bags of….chicken based snacks? - is Derek, asking if he’s up for “another challenge”.
Stiles loses again but it’s okay because the moment Derek wins, he turns to him and with a grin that can only be described as the love child of ‘shy’ and ‘shit eating’ (if that is even possible), he cups Stiles’ cheek and says, “I’m going to claim my prize now.”
The kiss tastes like chicken and too much salt but Stiles doesn’t care because it’s the best kiss of his entire life and his stomach won’t quit doing somersaults.
thank you for always making me laugh and for being my healing when life gets difficult. with you fantastic 13 balls of sunshine, these past two years have been much more than just very nice. i’m so proud that i’ve been able to see all of you grow, and just thinking about it causes tears to well up. but, i’ll try to hold these tears in because i don’t wanna cry.
seventeen, i’m glad we’ve made it this far, and i’ll continue to adore u for years to come. let’s keep on walking on this flower path.
Someone: hey just because you’re mentally ill doesn’t mean you have the right to abuse others … you have to take responsibility for your actions. I know it’s hard, I’ve been there myself, but we can’t just harm others and expect to get away with it by blaming it on our disorder(s)
Someone else, inevitably: wtf kind of neurotypical bullshit is this lol
So I just stumbled across a photo of a pup that works in a hardware store, following people through the shop and bringing their purchases up to the register, and now I’ve fallen into a SuperCorp + Krypto the Superdog bookshop au
Lena’s been having a really rough time since first moving to National City, but nothing’s more calming than a good book and a steaming cup of tea, right? She knows that she desperately needs to unwind a little bit, so on her way home from work, she makes the executive decision to stop by a cozy, out-of-the-way bookshop that has caught her eye a couple of times. Its empty state implies that it doesn’t see a lot of business, but the artsy “Argo City Books” sign and the warm atmosphere that Lena can see through the display windows are just too charming to ignore. When she walks in, however, she isn’t anticipating being greeted by a massive, furry floof of a dog, sitting on a dog bed near the entrance with ears perked and tongue out panting excitedly.
Besides the friendly-looking beast, there doesn’t appear to be anyone else in the shop. Lena starts browsing the aisles, breathing in the comforting scent of books, and she’s starting to feel the slightest bit more like herself again when she feels something damp and warm nudge her hand. Looking down, she spots the dog now seated beside her, staring up at her expectantly. Lena hesitantly shifts her hand to scratch behind the dog’s soft fluffy ears, and he breaks out into a dopey puppy grin that has Lena’s lips twitching at the corners in return before she turns back to looking over the book titles in front of her.
The dog continues to follow her around the shop as she reads the backs of books, and when she finally selects one, she’s startled to feel the dog’s nose nudging against her side, drawing her attention. Lena sees the pup’s gaze fixed on the book in her hand, and in confusion, she holds it out to him. She watches in surprise as the dog gently takes the spine of the book in his mouth and prances up to the register, where he rears up to place his fore-paws on the counter so he can delicately deposit the book. He then returns to her side, proudly waiting to do his job again.
Lena honestly can’t help what happens next. It has been a really hard month and a half since the move, and this dog is just too damn cute. Somehow Lena finds herself on the floor sobbing into the fluffy chest of this massive dog that now sits a head taller than her. His fur is soft and warm, and the gentle puffs of his breath against her are comforting.
The quiet moment is broken by a voice calling, “Krypto, buddy, where are yo– oh,” followed by a blonde woman appearing around the bookshelf and stopping in her tracks.
Lena scrambles back away from the dog, brushing the wetness away from her eyes but not quite capable of dragging herself up off the ground. “I- um I’m sorry for c-crying into your dog,” Lena apologizes awkwardly, trying to avoid eye contact with the beauty now squatting beside her and the floofy beast, Krypto.
“Not a problem. Are you alright though?” Concern fills the other woman’s voice, and Lena is surprised to feel a warm, comforting hand placed on her shoulder. She looks up to meet sparkling blue eyes and brilliant grin as the woman offers, “Looks like you could use a hot drink and maybe someone to talk to?”
“Oh … no. I- I couldn’t” Lena whispers out, flusteredly brushing a loose piece of hair behind her ear.
“Nonsense,” the woman shrugs with a sweet smile as she takes both of Lena’s hands within her own and pulls her to her feet. She then strides to the other side of the shop and flips the ‘Open’ sign to ‘Closed.’
“Come on up,” she says gesturing to a door at the back of the shop. Lena follows this stranger up to what appears to be a small, cozy loft. She takes it all in feeling a calming energy fall over her for the first time since setting foot in National City. Oddly enough, Lena feels as though she can finally breathe easier, here in the presence of this sweet stranger and her beautiful beast of a dog that is currently leaning heavily against Lena’s leg.
“I’m Kara, by the way,” the woman says, setting a kettle of water on the stove top in the kitchen before turning with a broad, friendly smile lighting up her already-stunning face like a ray of sunshine.
Lena gives a soft smile in return and threads her fingers through the thick fur on Krypto’s head. She offers a quiet, “I’m Lena,” in return, her heartbeat quickening as Kara’s smile grows even brighter.
So yeah … I had to get that out of my head! The pupper was just too cute and I couldn’t get this to leave me alone!! Maybe some day in the future, I’ll turn it into a real full-fledged fic if any of you want
Hey Matt, I know you watch RT stuff a long time ago, do you know why Kara left RT? I curious
I’m pretty sure Kara got a really nice job as an executive assistant at an animation studio in Austin and I also think (just my opinion) that she wasn’t really a fan of the attention that comes with working at RT. I could be wrong, but she’s never been very active on social media and stuff, at least not since she left. I think Kara prefers the quieter life and she seems very happy.
I do miss seeing her in stuff, but we always have Weiss
geez after 373 thousand years of working on this, i *finally* got it to a point where I’m happy enough to call it done. My dad once suggested during an art block that i integrate Psych with Portal and Doctor Who, and it inspired me to crank this monster out. It’s no where near perfect, it could be a lot better, but here it be
You have pARTNERS I'm so curious how many how does it work omg (sorry you don't have to answer I just never met anyone that had more than one partner and I just have to know how it feels like sorry omg)
Oh no worries. I’m pretty open about it. Ok, so I’m aromantic asexual, so our relationship is queerplatonic. That means that we’re not romantically attracted to each other (since we’re all ace, we’re not sexually attracted either, but that’s not true for all qp’s), but we still have a incredibly deep bond that goes past the boundaries of society’s ideas of normal friendship.
Basically, we’re not in love, but we love each other nonetheless, and we wan tot spend the rest of our lives together.
And as for having multiple partners works, it just means there’s more love. More than one person to laugh with, to cry on, to watch shows with, to cuddle. It’s pretty great
