Summary: None of the Fairy Tail guild members would think of Valentine’s Day in the same way again… A night of frolic, dancing and minor (for Fairy Tail) explosions. Also, canal boats. Mirajane and Cana plot to ease Erza’s surly attitude, roping Gray and Wendy into the action as well as stirring their spoons in several other pots. The older members of Crime Sorcière are only too happy to help out, as they’re tired of Jellal’s moping.
A fabulous collaboration between @nalufever and @impracticaldemon – We hope you’ll enjoy this Valentine’s Day present to you! 💗💗💗 If we receive enough encouragement, we will definitely try this again, although we still haven’t quite recovered from our current state of giggles! 😂 😂 😂
Chapter 1: Set-Up
[I] The Planning
Mira sat on top of the freshly polished bar and employed her brightest smile
at Erza. “The Master gave me the go-ahead
for the Valentine’s Day Community Relationship and Bonding Soiree.”
“Valentine’s Day is an archaic idea.”
The red haired swordswoman crossed her arms and frowned. “The Master only wants to ogle more women.”
“Of course.” Mira’s smile never lost
any wattage. “There’s nothing wrong with
that.” She cast her eyes over to a sullen
Laxus and Freed dancing attendance. “We could
use some fresh meat here. Don’t you get tired
of the same guys?” She giggled—Laxus could
hear everything (dragon slayer senses doncha know) but she had a thick skin when
it came to certain things; if he knew what was good for him and her and Freed—he’d
ignore Mira’s small verbal faux pas.
“Ugh.” Grimacing, Erza looked away
and let her lips pinch together in a most unflattering expression. “Not everyone is looking to sate their base desires
at a moment’s notice.”
Cana took this opportunity to spin around on her bar stool. “More’s the pity.”
“Yes, Cana knows what Valentine’s Day should be about,” agreed Mira.
It took all Erza had not to growl. Instead she grumbled: “Why would any sane person take the advice of
a demented match-maker or an inveterate lush?”
“Tch.” Mira ignored the tone and content
of Erza’s words. “You really need something
to take that wicked edge off.”
“I am fine.”
Cana drained her mug and shook her head; Mira looked at the red-head and
giggled. “The cards never lie, Erza. You need some help.”
“I am fine.” Repeating her words didn’t
make her believe them any better either.
The endless scuffling between Gray and Natsu, behind her, burned her last
nerve. Turning, Erza glared at the ice and
fire mages. “I will rip off your arms and
beat you to death with them if you don’t stop right this instant!”
Natsu pulled his punch, turning his haymaker into a friendly arm around Gray’s
neck. For his part, Gray grimaced but allowed
“We’re the best of pals over here!”
“The very best!”
Lucy sighed and joined Erza, Cana and Mira. “Did I hear someone asking for help?”
Summary: Moments before the Evil Queen’s Dark Curse whisks our beloved fairytale characters to Storybrooke, Captain Hook finally gets his revenge on the Crocodile.
Despair gave way to distraction as a low rumbling caught Hook’s attention. The ground began to shake under his feet as the rumbling became a cacophony within his ears, and just over the treetops Hook watched as a dark purple cloud came barreling towards him.
“What the blazes is that?!” Hook exclaimed.
“Oh, that,” the crocodile quipped, “would be the Dark Curse.”
Hook paled at the realization that there was no escaping the onslaught.

Next on my Nicksmas wishlist … Another Nicks & Grohl collaboration, but this time an album. As well as songs from the vault 2, I’d love to see Stevie do an album of new material. While I appreciate the fabulousness her collaboration with Dave Stewart has produced, I’d give almost anything to see her work with Dave Grohl next. I love that Stevie loves Dave’s grungy vibes & I’ve loved everything they’ve done together so far. The world needs more Nicks & Grohl!
