Yes, yes, YES!!! to Kanda and Lenalee saving Lavi together! \^w^/ So to continue on your amazing ideas, imagine this:
- - - - -
* Lvellie trying to get a hold of Lavi to interrogate him for information about the Noah(s), because he will do anything to get enough information to win the war.
* Lenalee being tired of Lvellie’s shit, and she refuses to let Lvellie interrogate Lavi like he’s a suspect/enemy. Kanda doesn’t like Lvellie either, so he gladly joins Lenalee in their mission to keep Lavi away from Lvellie. Lavi doesn’t complain about this - he can’t stand the guy (Lvellie) either after what he did to Lenalee, so it’s always a plus to mess with Lvellie.
* Kanda staying guard outside the nursery/hospital to make sure Lvellie doesn’t enter while Lenalee takes care of Lavi inside, reassuring Lavi that he’s safe now and they’ll make sure he never gets captured and/or tortured again by any enemy again. Lenalee let’s it stay unsaid if she considers Lvellie to be an enemy. Lavi doesn’t dare to ask.
* In the beginning Lavi “is sleeping and shouldn’t be disturbed” when Lvellie tries to enter the nursery/hospital to get a hold of Lvellie, but when Lavi eventually is released from the nursery/hospital Kanda and Lenalee immediately make sure at least one of them is always with Lavi at all times.
* Kanda being disturbed by just how quiet Lavi is now. He has to restrain himself from not shaking Lavi and ask him why aren’t you talking!??
* Lenalee takes Lavi to the roofs with the help of her boots. They just sit there, no matter the weather, and Lavi just enjoys being able to sit outside and enjoy the summer. No one looks for them up there, so both of them get some deserved peace and quiet.
* After Lavi falls asleep with his head on Lenalee’s shoulder she’s the one to carry him to Kanda’s room, because like hell they’re going to let Lavi sleep on his own, and no one without a death-wish dares to enter Kanda’s room uninvited.
* They can’t avoid Lvellie forever, so eventually Lavi is taken down to “leave a statement” about everything which happened and Lenalee is not allowed to follow. Good luck making Kanda leave though - he’s a general and will take no shit. He joins the room and the “discussion”, to be there for Lavi and make sure Lvellie behaves. It’s a good thing he does.
* The “talk” starting somewhat well, but the more angrily Lvellie press for details the more stressed Lavi becomes while he remembers everything, because this is too much like what he was just saved from. He gets a panic-attack, and Kanda doesn’t care what Lvellie says and leaves with Lavi right there and then, going straight to Lenalee with Lavi.
* Once he calms down Lavi brokingly admits to Kanda and Lenalee he has never hated his eidetic/photography memory as much as he does now.
* Lavi just looking so BROKEN and asking, pleading/begging, to not have to go back in there with Lvellie and the rest of CROW:
* Lavi would still eventually be forced to leave a statement, but this time Kanda and Lenalee make sure to take him to Komui instead. Lvellie and the Crow are banned from the room and Lenalee is allowed to stay in the room together with the rest.
* Lenalee holding Lavi’s hand tightly and crying while Lavi slowly begins to tell Komui and the others what happened to him and Bookman.
* Kanda needing to resist the urge to run back to the Noah(s) and make sure to inflict 1000 times worse pain than they’ve done against Lavi.
- - - - - I want them to be HAPPY, but it’s also just too easy to come up with angsty stuff like this, especially since something like this also could happen in canon. ;_; Oh, and sorry, this became rather long as well. I hope you don’t mind that… ^_^;
Also, thank you so much for your kind words about my video - they make me happy. ♥

Do you have any other great ideas for this? :) //JT
Oh, man…of course Rouvelier would be involved. And Lavi knows all about how intense his interrogations could be. As a coping mechanism, he probably shuts “Lavi” off and becomes “Bookman Junior,” but he doesn’t realize that his trauma runs too deep to ignore.
Look what came in the mail today! My Gray-sama FT Mag! ^0^
It’s so much smaller than what I thought it would be. For some reason I was picturing it to be the size of the weekly manga magazines, but it’s actually about the size of the official manga volume releases, but much thinner. Anyway, it looks great, and for all my fellow Gruvians out there, I found a few more appearances of Juvia hee!
I’m not sure what it says of course, but I guess the first pic talks a bit about Juvia’s first meeting with Gray where he started stripping, and his stripping problems in general, if the other pictures are any indication lol!
The second one is likely about the Gruvion love triangle. ^-^
The last one doesn’t have anything to do with Gray probably, because this section was part of a three page feature that looks to just be generally FT-related.
I sent melllllly a message about translating these sections, so hopefully she can. If not, then maybe thefairystales will get to them soon. In any case, it’s nice to have the mag itself, and I’ll definitely be getting Juvia’s too if/when it comes out. ^-^
Also, getting Lucy and Plue’s stickers included makes me a little sad that I wont be able to get the Gruvia ones that will be coming with Erza’s volume (I can’t justify buying the whole volume/DVD just for Gruvia stickers ^^; ).
The 84 mile Green River trip from Sand Wash to Swasey’s Rapids in Utah offers outstanding scenery, interesting geologic formations, evidence of prehistoric and historic human activity, and amazing whitewater opportunities. The average trip length for private boaters is 6 to 7 days. A permit, available on Recreation.gov, is required year round for floating the Desolation Gray Canyons section of the Green River featured here. (Photos by Chad Douglas, BLM)
Experience the river virtually in this Desolation Gray Canyons video.
Here’s the Japanese text in Gray’s “Love” section that I found on 2ch:
お互い “気の置けない仲間” といったところか。
It essentially translates (VERY roughly) to:
As was said by GeminiGray, he is interested in Lucy’s looks, but there hasn’t been any progress on that front, and they are just friends/Lucy is someone easy to get along with/talk to.
While with Juvia, it says “he’s often harsh towards her, but he also sometimes says gentle things like "I’m here with you” and sometimes he holds her hand. Does he just think of her as a friend, or…!?“
Like I said, this is a a VERY rough translation, and there are far better people working on what is really being said, so I suggest we all just wait patiently to read what is really going on. But, it does seem like they are clearly stating Gray and Lucy are friends, while simultaneously hinting that Gray and Juvia have something more going on.
Honestly, after being worried that gray’s profile would feature a ton of other girls just to tease his love life, this is beyond awesome as a Gruvia fan. They are hardly being subtle here with the Gruvia tease to say the least lol!
Also, I can’t wait until the "relationship” portion is also translated, because they used that Gruvia cover to represent Gray’s close relationships (With Natsu and Juvia having the biggest/most prominent pics obviously), and there’s a couple of “!?” and some trailing off there too for Juvia’s section lol!
