Working PAX South completely screwed up my plans last week, so I’m trying to play catch up this week. Day 5 brings us a moment with my own Fionna and @mjaydziarand‘s Seth Rand. Thanks, hon, for letting me borrow him!
This was not what I had notes for when I first plotted out my work for the week. As frequently happens, the characters had other plans. The Smuggler Smolder™ is a thing, y’all.
Follows on pieces Jayde posted: “It’s Just Business,” and “Just a Client, Walo.” Our two heroes have made their delivery to Organa Palace, and are enjoying the family’s hospitality before departing the next day.
Fionna leaned back in the luxurious overstuffed chair, gaze fixed on the amber liquid as she swirled it in the tumbler. This one, unlike the ones at the Guilded Descent, was actually glass and more fitting the unlabelled bottle of Whyren’s that now sat open on the caf table before her. The whiskey clung slightly to the sides of the glass and offered a slightly sweet aroma that reminded her of home. She took a long draw from the glass, then leaned back in the chair with a contented hum.
Those were the symbols that distinguish them from each other.
But only a man could have all three brands designed for life on his skin.
The man who for nearly ten years had the reins of the game on cards.
An idea for a nalu drabble - Natsu and Lucy announcing their relationship status of boyfriend x girlfriend to the guild
Of course! ❤️
Lucy was nervous. From the looks she and Natsu were getting when they came into the guild together, with their hair messed up and clothes askew, people were curious about their pending relationship status.
And she couldn’t wait to see their faces when she and Natsu announced that they were dating for real.
Of course, they had been dating for months, but were too scared to tell everyone. How would they react? How would they act around the rest of the guild? And would everyone accept them with their relationship?
With anxiety slowly building in her chest, Lucy sighed from her seat next to Natsu. She was worried that everyone would be shocked to their core and not know how to act around them.
Natsu placed a hand on Lucy’s shoulder with a smile. “Luce, it’s gonna be fine. Besides, you got me!” He grinned brightly, and happiness grew inside of Lucy and she smiled softly back at her secret boyfriend.
Lucy tapped her wineglass with her spoon, and the rest of the guild turned their heads towards them.
“Guys, we have an announcement,” Lucy raised her glass to the rest of the guild. Everyone raised their glass hesitantly and then started bringing up ideas of what the announcement could be.
“You’re eloping?!” Cana yelled, slamming her fist on the table.
“You’re having Natsu’s twins?!” Levy peeked up from her book, eyebrows raised.
“You’re moving in together?!” Evergreen said from holding onto Elfman’s arm, giving them a judgmental stare.
“N-no! Nothing like that!” Lucy yelled, turning red and waving her hands frantically in front of her. “What I wanted to say is that Natsu and I, we are, um…,”
“Wow. I knew you two were close, but I didn’t know you were that close!” Cana smirked at Lucy while taking a swig of her beer.
“No! Not that either!” Lucy shouted, starting to get a little bothered by these comments. What kind of girl did her friends think she was?!
“I’ll say it, Luce. I have no shame, remember?” Natsu pointed out. He stood and took a swig of his whiskey and shook his head before speaking.
“We’ve been dating in secret for the past four months now,” Natsu announced, and the whole guild fell silent.
“Way to go, Lu-chan!” Levy yelled, waving her book in the air and giggling.
“I knew you had it in ya, girlie!” Cana raised her beer drunkenly before downing the rest of it.
“Good man, Natsu!” Wakaba and Macao told them, turning away to hide their tears. How could this kid get a girlfriend and they had been single for years?!
“Kiss her, Natsu!” Lisanna giggled loud enough for Bixlow to hear, and Bixlow smirked. He definitely had to give Lisanna her confession and hopefully kiss her tonight…
Natsu was more than happy to oblige. He swept his not so secret girlfriend into his arms and kissed her with the strength and passion of a dragon. Lucy grasped onto her boyfriend and deepened the kiss, and the whole guild whooped and hollered for the new couple.
“Told ya it would be okay, Luce,” Natsu said after he broke the kiss, and Lucy blushed.
She was happy that her friends and boyfriend were all in agreement. She was happier than she ever had been right now. And she was always content when they were all together.
