“Lucy, I’ll put it this way. I like my men like I like my coffee,” the woman across from Lucy began, and she leaned in as to whisper a secret. “Tall, dark and hot, and not lukewarm.”

Lucy giggled, tapping her notes on her computer. So far she had a few things written down: dark hair, enjoys long walks on the beach, doesn’t mind seeing and caring for twelve cats, a fan of DC superheroes, and a coffee-lover. Seemed easy enough. Maybe not for most people, but for Lucy Heartfilia, it was a cinch.

Some people said she had a gift for seeing people and automatically having the thought that they’d fit with another person. Others said that Lucy was too busy to find a boyfriend of her own so she helped others find their matches. But only people that were close to the twenty-six-year-old knew the gospel truth.

Lucy was demisexual.

. The Game of Life . Epilogue

Full Summary: “You’re new here, so I’ll explain the rules once.  Winners get one lash, losers die.  It’s quite simple.  The last one standing gets no lash.  We do one game a day here and you live as long as you can stand it.  If you somehow miraculously try to get away, I kill you.  It’s quite simple really.”

Pairings: Natsu x Lucy, Gajeel x Levy

Warnings: This really isn’t a fic for sensitive readers.  Mentions of suicide, descriptive gore, the likes.  It’s rated M, my friends.

When Levy flicked her tongue out with a devilish look in her eyes, Lucy knew something was up. Particularly because she’d seen the flash of iron upon it. Giggling under her breath, Lucy leaned over the table and demanded, “Show me.”

For the first time since before they’d been kidnapped, Levy willingly leaned forward and stuck her tongue out. Her hazel eyes glowed with excitement as Lucy examined the iron ball that hid her scar for the most part. “Gajeel did it for me,” she told her cheerfully. “Last night.”

“It’s lovely,” Lucy said earnestly, smiling warmly. “Looks like it hurt, though.”

“It did,” she admitted. “You should have seen how frantic Gajeel was afterwards. He was panicking enough that he nearly ran for Wendy!” She smiled to herself at the memory. “It’s actually a little bit bigger than most are. I…I wanted to hide it. As much as I could. You can still see some, but the piercing captures your attention first.”

“It does,” Lucy agreed, tracing the rim of her teacup with her finger. She glanced over her shoulder to check for Natsu, who’d been scanning through missions. “I was given the okay to start working again, so we’re all going on a job. I need to pay rent. Well, I need to pay Gray back. He paid rent for me.”

“That was nice.” Levy rested her chin on her open palm. A few blue strands tickled her cheek. As soon as Lucy had been able, the blonde had summoned Cancer for both of them. Gajeel had given his approval in the form of a pat to Lucy’s head as soon as the Spirit had finished. Lucy hadn’t returned her hair to its original length - in fact, she’d left it short. She’d had him stylishly cut it into a bob that cut off at her chin. Levy’s hair had been fixed back to its original style - even a little bit longer, though not much. A headband was tied into her hair and Levy’s teammates were watching them anxiously from not too far away.

Lucy grinned. After they’d returned to the guildhall - they’d come flying in with tears in their eyes and had to be kept off of Levy by Gajeel - they’d been clingy, apologizing every time she looked at them for not being there.

Lucy had jumped in at one point, pointing out that not even Gildarts would have been able to stop it had he been there, and that had for some reason comforted them just a little.

“Lucy!” Natsu suddenly shouted over the noise of the guild, waving a paper in the air. “How ‘bout this one! We gotta go pick some kind of rare flower for an old lady!”

She turned to face him - and tears sprung to her eyes as pain raced up her back. Wendy had done her best, but it still hurt. It was something that would dull over time, but never go away. Just like the massive scarring that had formed after Wendy had healed it with Chelia’s help.

anonymous asked:

Beach date with NaLu? :)

Of course, anon!

“Natsu, come swim in the water with me!” Lucy grinned as she waved, and Natsu looked out from under his sunglasses at his best friend. 

He wouldn’t admit it, but she looked stunning in that bikini of hers. It was pure white with a single hibiscus printed on one of the triangles that held her chest in. Not that he was looking at her chest at all…

With a leap and a bound, he caught her in his arms despite her squirming and squealing. A slight toss was all it took to throw her into the water. With a grin, he dusted off his palms and started back toward his towel to suntan once again. 

His plan was thwarted when Lucy grabbed ahold of his swim shorts and dragged him into the water with her. She grinned evilly as she began to splash him and get his hair wet. 

“Uh, Luce,” Natsu began, his face turning red, but Lucy continued giggling and pushing the water toward him with her hands. He interrupted her once more, but she didn’t listen. Finally, he told her what he had meant to since she grasped ahold of his swim shorts a little too roughly. 

“My swim shorts came off.” 

Lucy ran out of the water like it was contaminated.  

Hehe, there you go! I hope you enjoyed! <3

Requests are open! I hope to do at least one request a day so I can warm up for anything that I am writing that day :)

The strength of the Pinky Promise

Next one-shot of my Halloween series! This is for @illustraice, my dear Ice who’s in love with anything involving fast food! ;D

No.:27; Over 1.7k words, fluff and romance, a shittone of affectionate exchanges. Nalu, fast food loving vampire x star witch who’s stuck to his side bc of soulmate bond AU.

{Gruvia} | {Gajevy}

Looking at the delighted vampire next to her, she couldn’t resist smiling at the sight. He was currently murdering the fifth oversized hamburger with his far too strong bites as he idly munched on the bap.

He gulped the content of his mouth down with a loud sound when he turned to her, crumbs lining his thick lips as his contented smile widened into a grin.

“Oh man, I love their black pudding hamburger!”

His goofy mimic made Lucy giggle giddily as she blindly reached out for a napkin to wipe away the remains of his burger, affection easily seen in her moves.

The vampire bumped his nose to her hand which – yet again – made the witch laugh. His sharpened canines sinking in his lower lip as he caged her hand within his to breath a kiss on her fair skin.

Her complexion went directly from pale to crimson which made him muffle a laugh.

“Don’t embarrass me!” she chided and tried to pull away her hand from his, but he didn’t let her do so.

His green eyes glinted as he tightened his hold, tongue running along his teeth. “But it’s so much fun!”

The witch rolled her eyes, unable to protest, even after one of his deep look, desire and hunger set in those mesmerizing olive eyes.

Super Into a Supermodel

Did I really draw my own au, just to make the Au fic not even an hour later? What is my life

Dont answer that


T+ bcuz its gettIN HOT

“Oh Jesus. Do you see this headline?” The blonde scoff, taking a long sip from her sweet frappe.

“Huh?” Natsu mumbled, mouthful of Quarter Pounder, with small bits of fries that he managed to wedge in with his burger.

Lucy snorted, watching and Natsu blushed from his full mouth and quickly swallowed down his food.

“Y'know for a trainer, you sure eat alot of salt.” Lucy giggled, popping the frappe’s cherry into her mouth.

“For a super model, you sure eat a lot of sugar.”
He shot back, a devilish grin spreading across his face as she chucked a fry at him.

“Hey. They set laws against models starving themselves, and who am I to break the law?” She shrugged, enjoying the chocolatey taste of her frappe as it came through the straw.

Nastu chuckled, finishing some more fries before plopping down on the couch beside her.

“What headline are you talking about?” He mumbled, leaning into her phone screen.

‘Supermodel Lucy Heartfilia spotted with equally attractive supermodel mystery man. Wait What??? He’s her boDYGUARD? WELL WHY ISN’T HE A MODEL? HAVE YOU SEEN THIS GUY??’ The headline read above the Cosmo article.

Natsu felt laughter bubble out of his mouth before throwing his head back, cackling wildly at the ridiculous statement.

“Oh fuck. Oh man! They write anything these days.” He sighed, wiping a tear from his eye.

“But you can’t blame them.” Lucy giggled.

Natsu blushed, the laughter halting in his throat as he waited for Lucy to finish her comment.

“Look at you in this picture! All buff and sensual. You can’t blame them for thinking you’re model material~” she teased, knowing how he felt whenever she complimented him.

Natsu turned even more rouge before his smirk was back on his face, leaning into Lucy’s personal space.

“Are you just mad that I stole the spotlight?” He teased back, watching as her face had now become a brighter shade of red.

Quickly snatching the phone from her hand, he eyed the picture closely. Lucy huddled into his side, eyeing him with a flustered look as he stared down the papz. Really, he just wanted to scare them away, not turn them on.

“Look at you. Swooning just as hard as the commenters.” He grinned, pointing at her flushed face in the picture.

“You wish. Everyone knows I’m the star.” She shot back, quickly regaining her confidence as she retrieved her phone and pinned him down to the couch.

He moved quickly before she could straddle him and claim victory, swiftly flipping her over so that he was on top.

“That’s not what the article says.” He cooed, watching as she huffed and squirmed beneath him.

“Fine. You’re gorgeous! Let me up now?” She huffed, but gasped as he lowered his head down, pressing his forehead against hers.

“Nah. I think it’s time for your close up…” He said, voice becoming rough as he pinned her to the sofa.

“Natsu…we have to get ready. Remember the event we were supposed to attend?” She sighed, trying to push him away but still extending her slender neck for him to feast on.

“We have time. Plenty of time.” He grunted, pulling her hips against his.

“Hey! N-not so rough! You’ll leave marks.” She gasped, wrapping her slender legs around his waist.

“Luce. Im your body guard. The guardian of your body. So…” He muttered, licking the shell of her ear as he began lifting her shirt.

“Let me do my job~”

Pregnancy Blues

Here is the second one shot I asked you guys about! Sorry it took me a while to get this out, hah. And it’s different than the fics I normally do, since this isn’t an AU. But I hope you enjoy anyway :)

Enjoy the tiny bit of angst ^^

Lucy stared down at her sleeping husband, his chest rising and falling to the melody of his heart beat. A sound she cherished.

Even in his sleep, he reached out and found her hand, and laced his fingers with hers.

“Silly dragon..” she let go of his hand to shake him, “Natsu, wake up.”

“..ire dragon..punch..”

Lucy giggled, even in his sleep he was a fighter, “Natsu, come on, wake up.”

“..wha.. Lucy?” his eyes barely opened, the sun coming in from the window behind them was making her glow.

“Good morning.”

“Mornin’,” he took her hand again and kissed it, “why’d you wake me up? I was having a good dream. I was kicking Gray’s demon slaying butt.”

“I’m sure you were, you are the strongest wizard in the guild after all,” she laughed when his fist pumped the morning air, “I have something I need to tell you.”

“Yeah?” He sat up and leaned against the headboard, after they were married she moved in to his and Happy’s house. They expanded the place to make a few rooms for Lucy, a nicer bathroom and a library where she could be alone and write. Their bed was now on the loft above the kitchen.

“OK,” now she was nervous, “You know how I’ve been sick for a while, how almost everything makes me sick?”

“Yeah, it’s been freaking me out. What about it?” he crossed his arms over his bare chest.

“Well, I know why,” taking a deep breath she gazed into his beautiful onyx eyes, “I’m pregnant.”

He stared at her for a minute, blinking rapidly. Then he gazed down to her flat belly. When he looked back up at her face, he was beaming, “Re-really?”

“Yes,” she was so happy to see that look on his face, “I thought I was and Porlyusica gave me a test I could take here so I did this morning and.. yeah.”

In a flurry of blankets and pillows falling to the floor Natsu stood on the bed pulling Lucy with him, “You’re having a baby!” he hugged her so tight she couldn’t breathe.

“Natsu,” she gasped. She hugged him back, squealing when he fell back to the bed, “We’re having a baby.”

He gazed at her with delighted wonder in his eyes, “I’m gonna be a dad..”

“You are,” she moved his bangs away from his face, “You’re going to be a great dad.”

He smiled, leaning his forehead against hers, “I will, because you’ll be a fantastic mom.”

Lucy happily smiled, everything she ever wanted was right here.

“What are you guys yelling about?” a sleepy blue exceed flew up to them, he now slept in his own bed across the room. He occasionally slept with them, but he never knew when they would want to do their married training thing he wasn’t allowed to see.

“Happy!” Natsu sat up, pleased that his little buddy was the first to hear the news, “Lucy’s pregnant! I’m gonna be a dad!” he looked down at Lucy who chose to snuggle back into her pillow, “Lucy’s gonna be a mom! We’re having a baby!”

Happy’s jaw slacked, completely shocked. He grinned and flew straight into Natsu’s chest, “I’m happy for you guys!”

“Correction,” Lucy thought as she accepted her own hug from Happy, “now everything I’ve ever wanted is here,” she placed a hand on her belly, listening to Natsu and Happy talk about names, “and in a few months I’ll get to hold you, who is already so loved.”

Day 5: Summer

Hey everyone! Day 5 of LaxLu week! Enjoy 😉
Disclaimer: I don’t own Fairy Tail.

It was summer in Magnolia and Lucy and her friends, Levy, Erza, and Juvia were at the country club pool.
“Go talk to him!” Levy giggled to Lucy as they stared at the new, hot lifeguard.
The lifeguard was a huge, muscular man, with spiky blonde hair and striking gray eyes and a, holy shit, six pack. Damn.
“No way!” Lucy squealed.
“He’s looking over here!” Erza hissed.
Lucy and Levy looked over to the lifeguard and he was, indeed, staring at them. More specifically, Lucy.
“Omigod!” the blonde girl squeaked. She averted her eyes, blushing.
“Go talk to him!” Juvia joined in, smiling. “It’s the only way Lucy will get a boyfriend.”
“Shut up Juvia!” Lucy shrieked. “Ugh, I’m going swimming.”
The girls giggled behind her and Lucy stepped into the view of the lifeguard. Making sure he was watching her, she turned her ass to him and made a show out of stripping her shirt and skirt off, to reveal her sexy pink and white bikini.
She daintily slid herself into the crystal blue waters and there was a splash next to her. A girl with blue hair submerged.
“You made quite the show for that lifeguard, Lu-chan,” Levy wiggled her eyebrows suggestively.
“Oh shush,” Lucy muttered.
“Well, if you don’t claim that sexy, sexy beast, someone else will,” Juvia commented, jumping in next to Levy.
“Who?” the blonde girl queried.
“Minerva,” Erza growled distastefully, eyeing the lifeguard chair.
Lucy whirled around to see her black haired enemy chatting with the lifeguard. Minerva.
She was obviously flirting with him, by the way she positioned herself and the fluttering of her eyelashes.
“You gonna let her beat you?” Erza smirked, knowing that her friend would obviously get ruffled at the sight.
“Bitch, keep your hands off my man. Hell to fuck no,” Lucy snarled underneath her breath.
Calming her expression, Lucy smiled and climbed out of the pool, making a show out of it. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw the lifeguard eyeing her ass appreciatively. Smirking to herself, she stretched, making sure to point her butt towards him even more. She checked again. Definitely got his attention. Lucy licked her lips. It was go time.
Lucy sauntered over to him, pushing Minerva away.
“Hey babe! You feeling hot out here?” she chirped. The blonde girl draped her arms over his neck.
“Oh hey Lucy! This your boyfriend?” Minerva asked sweetly.
“Oh, Minerva! I didn’t see you there! Yeah, this is my boyfriend,” she replied with an equally sweet smile.
“Really now? He seemed to have an interest in me,” the raven haired girl shot.
“Oh that’s just him being polite,” Lucy brushed it off. “Right babe?” She lowered her face to plant a sweet kiss on his cheek.
The lifeguard’s mouth opened to speak, but Minerva cut him off.
“I bet he’s not really your boyfriend,” she snapped.
“Need me to prove it?” Lucy asked dryly.
“Kiss him on the lips,” the ravenette deadpanned.
Lucy tilted his face towards hers and leaned down to kiss him, but to her surprise, he grabbed her face and pulled her to him.
He kissed her roughly, sliding his tongue into her mouth. Lucy moaned as their tongues fought for dominance. His hands drifted to her waist and she buried her hands in his spiky hair.
When they pulled away, Minerva was gone.
“So, what’s your name?” the lifeguard asked huskily.
“I’m Lucy,” she replied breathlessly.
“Laxus. Nice to meet you,” he responded with a devilish smirk.
“So, are you free after your shift?” Lucy asked with a coy smile. She dropped her hands to Laxus’s pants and twiddled with the strings.
“As a matter of fact, it ends in five minutes and I am. Are you asking me on a date?” Laxus teased.
“I am. I’d like to get to know my boyfriend a bit more,” Lucy joked.
“Alright. Me, you, ice cream shop in ten.”
It was a summer day in Magnolia and Lucy Heartfilia had just made out with a sexy beast of a lifeguard and got him to go on a date with her. Summer was definitely the best season.

Yosh! I love this one lmaoo ❤️ Hope you did too!

Jessica was busy talking to a man at his grocery stall about the fruit she wanted, when she heard her daughters familiar giggle in her ear. “Lucy,” She sung slowly, questioning what she was doing. Paying for her veg, she gasped slightly. Lucy had been painting earlier that day and her mother had only just picked her up. Jess didn’t react fast enough as she saw her daughters red hand prints land on someone’s leg; creating a crimson mark. “Lucy Mitchell, what are you doing?” She gasped, running to swipe her daughter into the air. “I–– – I am so sorry, I’ll pay for you to have them cleaned. I – Oh gosh, I feel awful. Lucy, what do you say?”


Lucy giggled drunkenly as the other’s car pulled up, Lucy sitting on the curb with a backpack beside her, as well as a fresh bruise on her cheek and a cut lip. She stood up, saluting them with a hiccup. “You… are the best. I thought I was gonna have to find some bench to sleep on.” She slurred as she opened the passenger door, practically falling into the car. “He would have found me and hit me again, shhh….” Lucy whispered dramatically, pressing a finger to her lips. Okay so maybe she had failed to mention that before she got drunk off a bottle of whiskey she snatched from her and her boyfriend’s apartment.

This is for @ice-sakura-moon and their lovely headcanon that they were nice enough to share with me! Thank you, lovely. I appreciate it and I hope you enjoy this!

“Thanks again for the troia spell, Wendy.” Natsu beamed at his younger sister. “I’d be dying right now if ya didn’t help me out.”

“No problem, Natsu-san,” she smiled back sweetly. “You must be in a good mood if you’re allowing… well…” she nodded to Gray’s head in Natsu’s lap, face peaceful in his sleep.

“I guess,” Natsu chuckled quietly. “I mean, he did most of the work on this job so it’s the least I can do.” Wendy’s brows raised in surprise at his admission. “Don’t ever tell him I said that though,” he clarified. The sky dragon simply nodded before turning her attention back to Carla.

Lucy giggled in her seat across the aisle from the two male members of their team. When Natsu wasn’t happily looking out the window at the passing view, he was staring at the way Gray had curled up on his lap, the smile on his face far more fond than any he’d casted his rival when he was awake. It reminded her of the way Gajeel looked at Levy when he carried her home when she fell asleep in the library. Or the way Laxus looked at Freed when he leaned his head on his shoulder for a nap.

Her eyes widened, much to Erza’s curiosity. “What is it?”

Natsu looked over at her. He could basically see the wheels turning in her head. “Nothing.” She answered quietly. Natsu was about to press further and ask what was really on her mind when Erza dismissed the subject and went back to her book. Natsu took that as his sign to forget about it and went back to admiring the sights he was usually too sick to look at.

Lucy couldn’t shake the nagging thought in the back of her mind. Part of her was giddy, part of her was shocked. Natsu was looking at Gray the way she had seen other dragon slayers look at their mates. It was fascinating. While everyone suspected it would be her, she always thought it would be Lisanna. But Gray…? Talk about coming out of left field.

But it made sense, didn’t it? Why Natsu was always drawn to him, why he was so damn protective of him even when Gray got on his nerves. Gray had caused Natsu to go into Dragon Force on sheer emotion, for crying out loud! She should have known as soon as she had heard about that.

Natsu started absentmindedly stroking Gray’s hair as he stared out the window, fingers massaging Gray’s scalp and putting a smile on the ice wizard’s face even in his sleep. The sight was so bewildering that Lucy lost her grip on the communication lacrima in her hands and it crashed to the floor, startling everyone around her and waking Gray from his nap.

Gray shot up from Natsu’s lap, head colliding with his chin in the process. “What the hell!” The two men snarled in unison.

Lucy watched in amusement as Erza snapped something at them and nipped their argument in the bud.

“You’re still a hardheaded bastard.” Gray grumbled.

“Me?!” Natsu seethed under his breath. “I was nice enough to let you sleep on me and this is the thanks I get? Never again, Popsicle Dick!”

“Who said I wanted to sleep on your stupid lap anyways!” Gray shot back. “Your pants reek like smoke and brimstone!”

“At least I don’t curl up like a damn cat when I sleep!” Natsu snorted. “I’ve never seen such a girly nap in all my life.”

“Why, you – you…!” Gray sputtered, fist clenched and ready to swing.

An idea formed in Lucy’s head, and she had to know if she was right, “Gray, don’t punch him. You’ll get us kicked off the train again,” she faked a sigh.

“He deserves it!” Gray retorted.

“Have I ever told you Natsu’s ticklish?” She asked casually. Natsu gaped at her as if he’d been betrayed.

“Is that so?” Gray smirked, grabbing Natsu and wrestling him to the ground when he tried to bolt out of their cabin. “Where?” He asked, eyes hungry for some form of revenge, no matter how childish it was.

“Right beneath his jaw.” Lucy grinned. Natsu looked very confused. Lucy knew damn well it was his stomach that was ticklish. Why was she –

“You’re in for it now, Flame Brain!” Gray snickered, holding his wrists above his head with one hand and moving his fingers beneath Natsu’s chin, just above his neck.

“That doesn’t even tickle!” Natsu hissed. There was a strange pull deep in his chest, and while it didn’t hurt, he had a feeling it would lead to something embarrassing.

Lucy had to laugh. She knew it didn’t tickle. For one thing, Gray was trying in the wrong spot, for another, Gray couldn’t tickle someone to save his life. She knew because he had tried with her once and failed miserably. His tickles were more like soft scratches and felt far more pleasant than uncomfortable.

“Get off of me, Gray!” Natsu growled.

“Not until you beg for it!” Gray laughed.

The pull in his torso got stronger, moved to his throat, began to vibrate until a sound he’d never made before began to rumble in his chest. What the hell was that?!

Whatever it was, Gray mistook it for a laugh and frantically moved his fingers faster, and to Natsu’s dismay, it felt amazing. He made the sound again, once, twice, three times. Gray looked confused but didn’t stop until the sound thundered out around them.

“Are you… purring?” He breathed, almost glad that Natsu refused to look at him and couldn’t see the light blush that settled on his cheeks.

“No!” Natsu denied vehemently. Gray moved his fingers again, slower, with more purpose and to Natsu’s horror, it started up again.

“You are!” Gray exclaimed. Lucy opened her mouth to offer an explanation, but he didn’t need one. “Only a dragon slayer’s mate can make them purr, right? That’s what Levy said…”

“Shut UP!” Natsu wiggled his hands free and shoved Gray off of him. He threw a punch at his jaw for good measure before he fled from the cabin and ran down the hall.

“Great,” the ice devil grumbled, rubbing his jaw, “my mate’s a jack ass who hates me.”

“He doesn’t hate you,” Lucy encouraged. “I think he actually loves you and is just realizing it now. He hasn’t come to terms with it like you have.”

Gray’s eyes widened. “How did you…?”

“You really were hammered that night, huh?” Lucy laughed. “You told me when we were celebrating the guild coming back together. You were barely coherent, but you told me.”

Gray crossed his arms petulantly. “He’s still a jack ass.”

Lucy shook her head.

“Well?!” Erza cut in loudly, causing the entire team to jump. “Aren’t you going to go after him?” She demanded.

Gray thought for a moment. “Should I?”

“Yes!” The girls chorused.

“He probably went to find Happy, so I’m betting they’re in the dining cart.” Lucy offered.

Gray nodded. “Right. Thanks!” He called over his shoulder before running out after his mate.

Lucy smiled to herself. It was about time.

I have this headcanon that dragon slayers like looking at their mates when they sleep because they think they look their cutest when doing so :’)

Dreaming of You {Angst Week Day 5}

I’ve had this done for over four hours, but my internet was being a piece of shit.

Natsu’s eyes slip shut, and he sighs as fingers dance across his skin, over his arms and chest, never staying in one place for too long. It’s a phantom touch, and he isn’t sure it’s really there. He could just be dreaming, but he wants to believe this is something real. It feels real. Her hands on his skin feel real. The tips of her fingers trail down his bare stomach, dipping dangerously close to his hips before sliding back up once again. She’s teasing him, he knows. She always does. His lips twitch. Sometimes he wonders if she just likes to watch him squirm a little.

He wouldn’t put it past her. He’s known her for years and it seems like something she would do.

Above him, Lucy giggles, pulling away from him entirely.

Natsu is about to protest, but gasps when the flat of her palm settles over his heavily beating heart, her other trailing along his neck and sending shivers through his body. He doesn’t have to open his eyes to know that she’s smiling. She’s always smiling. She always sees something bright and good in the world—she’s always happy and so, so alive. She makes him feel alive.

He doesn’t know how he managed to hold himself together for so long before he met her. And he doesn’t know if he even knew himself before she knew him, flaws and all. Sometimes he can’t believe that he ever lived or breathed without her. That’s how far she’s integrated herself into his life. He doesn’t know what he would do without her around.

Something touches his neck, cool and light against his skin, and he shudders, lips twitching as he hears laughter. He says nothing though, he doesn’t want to break the quiet. It’s too peaceful, and he’s afraid if he says anything, everything will shatter and be lost forever. And that’s not something he wants. He likes this—the quiet, them together, Lucy.

God, he loves Lucy. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him. He doesn’t know how he found her or why she stumbled into his life, but he’s glad she did. He’s glad he found her.

Soft lips press to his jaw, just barely skimming his skin. Natsu smiles, his hands slipping up her back under her shirt, fingers tickling her skin. She laughs lightly, lips trailing across his chin, so light he can barely feel them, and her hands move up to cup his face as he pulls her down to him with a hand on her hip.

“Lucy,” he murmurs. “I love you.” She doesn’t respond like she usually does. She doesn’t say anything.

Lucy’s nose bumps against his playfully, and he tilts his head to press his mouth to hers. Her hand slides into his hair, her mouth opening to deepen the kiss. A cold hand still rests over his heart, and his own palm settles over hers, tears gathering in his eyes. He pulls away from her.

Natsu’s eyes slip open, but he doesn’t look at her—not yet.

“I’m dreaming,” he whispers, blinking back tears. His gaze slides to her, and a lump grows in his throat when he sees the sorrow in her eyes.

Lucy nods sadly. “Yes,” she tells her, the back of her hand brushing his cheek affectionately. “But it is a good dream.” She gives him a sad smile, tears in her own eyes. He nods with her, kissing her fingertips gently. It is a good dream.

“You’re dead, aren’t you.” It’s not a question. He knows it’s true. This isn’t real, but God, he wants it to be. He would give anything to have her back.


He laughs, a sob sticking in his throat as the first tears begin to fall. “I don’t want to wake up,” he tells her. “Lucy, I don’t want to wake up.” His grip on her tightens and he yanks her down to him, burying his face in her hair.

Something wet drips onto his chest and he knows she’s crying too, even if she isn’t really here. “I know,” she replies softly, placing her lips over his heart in a chaste kiss. “But you can’t stay here,” she tells him. “You still have things to do. You have a life to live.” It’s a gentle reminder, but it stings. He’s alive, but she isn’t. “We can only decide what to do with the time that is given to us.” She pulls back and he blinks up at her tearfully. Lucy smiles at him, catching his face in her palms and brushing his tears away with her thumbs. “And I’m so proud of you,” she says, tears sliding down her own skin. “Natsu, I love you so much. I always will.” She kisses him quickly. “You’re going to be happy and you’re going to do amazing things.” He shakes his head, but she doesn’t stop. “You’re going to find someone to love forever.” His hands tighten on her hips. “You’re going to be a great man.”

“I don’t want to be great,” he says thickly, his heart stuck in his throat. “I just want you.”

The tears are coming faster now, and he doesn’t think they’ll ever stop. Lucy just smiles at him. “And I you,” she breathes against him, catching one of his hands in hers, bringing his hand to her lips and kissing his knuckles. “But you need to wake up now.”

Natsu shakes his head rapidly, terror in his eyes. “Lucy, no,” he begs, voice cracking. “Please, no.” Her smiles falters, but only for a second. The sadness never leaves her eyes though. “Don’t go,” he sobs, hands grasping her desperately. His heart breaks all over again, just like it has everyday since he lost her forever.

“I love you.”

It’s not fair. It’s not fair that he lost her while that bastard walked away like nothing happened.

He shakes his head. “I don’t want to wake up,” he rasps, his head falling to the side, gaze sliding away from her. “I don’t want to wake up.”

He does anyway.

Natsu wakes up with a cry stuck in his throat, tears staining his face. The first thing he sees is the ceiling, but he slams his eyes shut again just as quickly. He blindly gropes the other side of the bed, sobbing when he realizes it’s still empty. Lucy isn’t there.

And she isn’t coming back.

She’s gone. Forever. He can’t get her back. The only place he’s ever going to see her is in his dreams.

His hands clench as he bares his teeth in a snarl. It’s so unfair. She was ripped away from him so suddenly—it’s cruel. She didn’t deserve to die—not the way she did.

They had been walking home after a date and there was an accident. He doesn’t remember much, just that they were hit by someone. Lucy shoved him out of the way at the last second, and the driver sped away. He held her in his arms, screaming for someone to help them. And there was chaos. People were screaming and someone was standing over him asking if he was alright—and dammit, he wasn’t alright!

Lucy was bleeding in his arms, her limps mangled and purple and black bruises already forming on her skin. And he was probably crying, he doesn’t remember. He was screaming and begging her to wake up, but her eyes just wouldn’t open. He could hear sirens in the distance, but it was like he was underwater, everything was muffled and nothing was making sense. His eyes were blurry and he was groping her neck for a pulse, but his hand was shaking too hard to feel anything. It was like he had gone numb.

And then she stopped breathing.

Another sob escapes him as he rolls to his side, curling in on himself.

It’s unfair. It’s so, incredibly unfair that he lost her—that she died. She’s always been this little light in his life, guiding him when he needs her, but now she’s gone, snuffed out like a candle. It’s like he’s lost in the dark with nowhere to go, and he’s just stumbling because he can’t see anymore.

She’s just gone. He knows she’s never coming back. He’s only going to see her when he closes his eyes and that kills him. His heart breaks all over again every time he wakes up and remembers she’s not here. She’s not going to be here. Not ever again.

He wishes he could just stop waking up.

Hot tears slide over his skin, but he hardly notices anymore. It’s like this every night. He should be used to this—but he’s not. He’s loved her for years. She’s been a constant part of his life for years. Yet, now he has to spend an entire lifetime without her.

Sometimes he wishes he died too. It would be easier than living like this. He knows Lucy would hate him for thinking it, but it’s true. They were so happy. So, so happy. But that’s gone now. She’s gone forever, and he can only hope it’s too a better place.

He’s never been a religious man, but for Lucy he wants something good, a place where he can meet her again some day. He wants more than just a cold, bloody ending on a street in December, but it’s been winter since she died. He just feels so cold all the time.

He wants spring.

He wants Lucy.

Natsu releases a shaky breath, eyes squeezing shut tightly. He reaches for the bedside table blindly, catching a pill bottle in his palm. Sitting up on his elbow, he shakes two into his shaking hand, downing them without a second thought. He blinks at the bottle, gritting his teeth.

He doesn’t need them anymore, but he takes them anyway. When he does, he sees her. And she would hate him for taking these pills. She would hate him for being a damn addict because he can’t do this without her. He can’t do any of this without her.

With a frustrated scream he throws the bottle across the room. It hits the wall hard, pills scattering all over the floor. He ignores it, falling onto his back. He’ll have to clean it up when he wakes up again, but he doesn’t want to think about it right now. He just wants to sleep.

He wants to see Lucy.

And he does.

Suddenly he’s in that white room again, Lucy standing in front of him wearing that short, red dress she only wears during the spring. The fabric swirls around her knees, billowing around her, but there’s no wind. She smiles when she sees him, her eyes lighting up with happiness.

She reaches for his hand, lacing their fingers together. Natsu smiles down at her, leaning his forehead against hers as he runs his fingers along her jaw, lips touching hers briefly.

“Lucy,” he breathes against her. She pulls back, giving his hand a squeeze and tilting her head to the right.

“You’re late,” she teases. “It took you awhile to come back.” He laughs, heart lighter than it has been for months.

“I know. I’m sorry,” he apologizes. “Can you forgive me?”

Her free hand rises to her cheek, her fingers brushing his skin lightly. “Of course.” He smiles, leaning down and kissing her again, slowly this time. Her lips move against his softly, lingering against his as he tilts his head, pressing closer to her as he slides an arm around her back. Her arm slides around his neck and he releases her, nose nuzzling hers before he kisses her temple, mouth against her skin.

“I love you,” he tells her, closing his eyes. “I love you so much.”

She smiles against his chin, placing soft butterfly kisses along his chin and jaw. “I love you too.”

Natsu tucks her under his chin. “I don’t want to wake up.”

And he doesn’t.

Edmund x Reader: I Spy

Anon:  Could you do a short or something about Edmund and Lucy’s best friend falling in love and Lucy ships them so much and has all her vlog subscribers shipping them too and they don’t know it?


Lucy giggled as she threw a pillow at Edmund. Of course, he was too busy to do anything more than glare. He ruffled (Y/n)’s hair before slapping her arm with the pillow playfully. Realizing some more cute moments would follow, Lucy pulled out her camera and discreetly began recording the two.

(Y/n) gasped before pulling out another pillow from the couch and slapped his arm a little harder. He only laughed and ruffled her hair again.

“Edmund, don’t mess up my hair!” she pouted, trying to untangle her now frazzled waves.

He chuckled. “You mean your hair wasn’t messed up already?”

Lucy’s eyes went wide as she gasped loudly. (Y/n)’s eyes went wide with rage. Edmund turned bright red as he realized what he had said.

“No, no, no, I didn’t mean to–” His cheeks turned rosy. Noticing this, (Y/n) seemed to take advantage of his current state. She lurched forward, which made him blush more. “Edmund, are you blushing?” Her lips curled into a smirk.

Lucy raised her brows at (Y/n)’s sudden boldness. She chuckled when Edmund slowly inched backwards, even if (Y/n) continued to lean forward. “Uh, um,” Edmund stammered. “Not exactly. I mean…” His words trailed off.

(Y/n) glanced down at his lips. As she slowly leaned closer, Lucy noticed that Edmund closed his eyes. Before Lucy could awkwardly interrupt, (Y/n) quietly grabbed a pillow behind her and shoved it against Edmund’s face.

He let out a muffled cry, and Lucy burst out laughing. It was only then that (Y/n) and Edmund seemed to remember she was even in the room.

Edmund cringed and scrunched his nose. “Lu, how long have you been sitting there?”

Lucy blinked. “I literally threw a pillow at you a few minutes ago, Edmund. Sorry, were you too distracted by (Y/n)’s lips?”

Both of them blushed deeply at this. Lucy only smiled, and secretly turned off her camera and stood, leaving them to try to think of a comeback. She ran into the kitchen and switched her camera back on, facing it towards herself.

“As you can see, my dear viewers, my ship is almost canon. Leave a comment down below if you ship (Y/n) and Edmund, and I’ll be sure to let them know so they can turn even more red. Until next time!” She switched off her camera and smiled. She couldn’t wait to upload this.

Love Across the Hall

I’ve had this little nalu drabble in my laptop for a while. This is what I feel it would be like if Natsu and Lucy lived right across the hall from each other. Enjoy :)

Lucy unlocked the door to her apartment and was greeted by the beautiful orange glow of the sunset that penetrated her window. “Home sweet home,” she said with relief. As she placed her purse on the couch, something caught her eye. Sleeping comfortably on the cushions was a fluffy Russian blue cat with a snow white belly and a green bandana tied around its neck. Lucy giggled at the sight of the lazy feline and carefully sat next to it.

“Hi Happy,” she said cheerfully, petting the sleepy cat on the head. The cat greeted her with a raspy purr and droopy eyes. “Is he working late again? Poor little guy just wants some attention,” she said as Happy got up from his spot and made his way over to her lap.

Oh, he was definitely not her cat, but he may as well have been. Happy always came to Lucy for attention when his owner wasn’t home. At first he would just meow constantly at her door until she would let him in and eventually she decided to just get a doggy door – or in this case a cat door – so he could walk in as he pleased. She wasn’t sure exactly how he even managed to escape his home but she didn’t mind the company.

As per usual, this is like a million years late. Happy birthday @notperfectbutfunny! Hope you enjoy this little NaLu drabble ^_^

Title: Partners
Summary: The teachers were always pairing them together. After the seventh time, she figured it was probably a conspiracy. (High School AU)

“Your groups for the project are as follows-“

“If I get Natsu again I’m going to cry.” Lucy whispered to her friend Levy, who giggled in turn.

“I’m starting to think the teachers are ganging up on you,” Levy agreed. “Not that he’s a bad person or anything.”

“I know, and because of the first project he’s become one of my closest friends, but he doesn’t do any work!” Lucy complained, quietly as possible.

“Levy McGarden and Erza Scarlet.”

Levy paled slightly. “Wish me luck,” she whispered.

Lucy giggled. “Erza loves you, you’ll be fine.”

“Lucy Heartfilia and Natsu Dragneel.”

Lucy watched Levy raise her hand to her mouth to muffle her laughter. Lucy lightly hit her head against the desk. Lucy looked up to see Natsu giving her a grin, casually leaning against his chair. She sighed, giggling slightly.

“Alright! Sit next to your partners and start assigning roles.”

“I think it’s a conspiracy,” Natsu admitted.

“I think they ship us,” Lucy joked.

“This is what, the sixth time this year? First time in history though.”

“It would be seventh but you were in the hospital last time, so I worked with another group.”

Natsu snorted. “Wow,” he droned. “Also, sorry about that.”

“You should be! If you hadn’t tried to fight Gray right next to the steps, maybe you wouldn’t have broken a rib.”

“He was asking for it!”

Lucy glared at him before looking at her assignment sheet. “Alright, so what are you going to do?”

“I can do the map drawing if you want.”

Lucy raised an eyebrow. “I know you’re good at art, Natsu, but that has to be done first. We can’t do the rest of the board without it. Will you get it done?”

“So mean,” he pouted.

“For good reason!”

“I’ll do it, I promise.”

“Fine, fine. I’ll do the artifact research and analysis. That should work. Want to work in the library after school?”

“Sounds good.”

With that, the bell rang. Lucy stood up and collected her stuff, then went to her next class.

“Natsu. Do the map. Or I will take that pencil and stab your eyes out.”

“So violent!” He grimaced. Lucy seethed as she glared him down. He picked up the pencil, sticking his tongue out at her, before lightly sketching out the outline of the continents while looking at a picture on the computer in front of him.

Lucy returned to her research, tapping the keyboard as she read. This project was definitely not her favorite, especially considering her general lack of interest in the topic. She was a bit distracted by the books surrounding her and wanted to open one to read about anything else. Natsu’s rhythmic scribbling was starting to distract her more, and she wanted to go home and take a nap.

She sighed, resting her head against her hand. She felt Natsu’s hand against the side of her face, and felt him put an earbud into her ear. She subconsciously fixed it as he started playing music. She glanced at him as he worked on the map, surprised that his music taste was similar to hers.

Must be all the projects, she mused. We’re developing similar tastes. She sighed again, feeling sleepy.

She scrolled through a particularly long journal article, and even opened the tabs to different primary sources. Her eyes hazed in exhaustion (and possibly boredom), and she blinked to refocus on the article. She blinked again, her eyes blurring. Before she knew it, she had completely closed her eyes and dropped her head onto the desk.

Natsu smirked as he saw Lucy slowly fall asleep. He was well aware she was probably exhausted from doing all her homework, schoolwork, and research for the project. From what he could tell, she was onto the last resource needed for it. He didn’t understand how she could finish everything so quickly and efficiently.

The quiet buzz of the library and page turning made him sleepy too, but he had a map to finish. Once he was done sketching, he darkened the lines and labeled it the way Lucy had told him to. He glanced at her sleeping face, so stress free and open. Brushing her hair away from her face, he internally wished she were like this all the time. He couldn’t bear seeing how hard she worked for school, barely letting herself have fun.

Surprised at himself for finishing the map within the second hour of working, he tucked it into his backpack. Noting she was near the end of the article, he took a few remaining notes and typed them into her document. He saved it, then put his stuff away.

About half an hour after she had fallen asleep, Natsu watched as Lucy stirred, ever-so-slightly. “Na…tsu…?“ she murmured, rubbing her eyes. His heart warmed.

“I’m right here, Luce.” he whispered back. He touched her shoulder as she lifted her head.

She yawned. “Oh…I’m really sorry.” she said quietly.

“Don’t be, silly. You needed a nap.” he responded, gently.

Lucy tilted her head, then turned to the document. Her mouth popped open when she saw the notes he had taken. “The map?” she asked.

“Done. I can’t believe how fast you are at taking notes, Luce.”

She glanced back at the document, then to him. She blinked, and a small smile spread across her lips. “Thank you,” she told him, sighing slightly.

He nodded. “Anything for you.”

She blushed and looked away. “I’m…I’ll do the analysis tonight,” she told him quickly, brushing a strand of hair behind her ear.

“Don’t force yourself,” Natsu said. “Though I really don’t think you should let me do it. I think you know, I’m pretty much failing English.”

She shook her head with a slight laugh. “Yeah, yeah.” She paused to look at him again. “You know if you need help with anything, you can ask me?”

He looked at her, staring into her warm eyes. He could feel his own cheeks grow warm. “Sure. Thanks, Luce.”

“Of course, Natsu.” Lucy put her stuff into her backpack and logged off the computer after printing her notes and sources. Natsu watched her as she did, leaning his head against his arm. She gathered all of her stuff and stood up. He stood up after her.

“Can I walk you home?” he asked. “It’s getting dark.”

Seemingly mixed emotions danced in her eyes. In what was most likely a rush of impulsiveness, she stood on her tiptoes and kissed his cheek.

He raised a hand to touch the spot, jaw hanging open. She looked away, then back at him. Her cheeks were rosy and smile shy. He doesn’t remember the last time she acted like this around him.

“I’d love that,” she responded, slightly stammering. His lips spread into a grin as he stood by her.

“Awesome,” he replied, heart soaring.

NaLu fluff is fluff worth writing :P Hope you enjoyed, and happy belated birthday Ola!
