...And Begin Again

Summary: He lost her once in a crumbling castle. He lost her again in a mist of darkness. And he’ll do whatever it takes to stop what’s left of her from fading away, before he loses her again. Spriggan Lucy AU. Nalu.

*blinks* Wow, this actually became a thing…. What a pleasant surprise! I thought there would be a hell lot more objections to this evil headcanon/AU baby @nanakoblaze and I created during one of our daily sinning sessions!

And with that latest chapter 455 of FT, whoah, coincidence much? Or is it…? So without further ado, here’s part two, enjoy! (Though i wonder, what would happen if i did write a part three with a different…naughtier ending…? Hmm…)
