Iron Legends -- Chapter 19

Series: Fairy Tail

Characters: Gajeel, Levy, plus appearances from Natsu, Lucy and others.

Genre: Hurt/comfort, Sci-fi

Summary: The old lab had always been fuel for a good story, something you would half-heartedly joke about going to sometime.  Some did, and when they came back they never talked about it again.  The legends circulated, telling of ghosts, monsters, and anything else someone would be likely to conjure up about an abandoned building.  But even with all the stories meant to keep everyone away, there are still those for whom the intrigue is too tempting.

Note: I got nothin to say but thanks to @amaranth121 for her help :]

Levy could feel her lips moving, trying to speak. There was a moment, a period of mutters and mumbles and incoherent whispers before she finally understood her own voice. “Where is he?” It felt detached, like an echo in the back of her head. There was a muttered response, and she felt a small pressure on her face and the earth underneath her move. “Where is he?” Again, her voice cut a little more clearly through the haze.

“The hell kind of name is Gajeel.” The red-eyed man growled, staring threateningly at the staff around his hospital bed.

Note: I really wanted to do a kinda immersive Gajeel POV in this chapter after listening to the song I posted earlier, and I am very excited to get into the good stuff in the rest of the chapter!  Enjoy! (i need to go to bed X_X)

The blows are painful. He feels his back hit the walls and he feels their fists and kicks impact his body. It shoots pain throughout his frame each time, but it hardly seems like he’s really the one feeling it. Gajeel feels like he’s watching himself from the outside, watching himself be punished for what he caused. He’s watching the shell of the man he thought had been given so much potential, destroyed further and further. Each time he’s hit, his senses scream one sentiment to him: she’s dead.

Levy is dead.

Note:  This is a very choppy chapter. I really wanted to go for a lot of shifts of consciousness, since we were settling in Levy’s POV for a while, which is very unstable and unreliable. Also, the “restraints” I describe are basically the “cuffs” that the Council used on people like Jellal.

Gajeel?

Gajeel where are you?

“Do I have to repeat myself? I said prepare a space in the infirmary. I have a subject incoming with an impale wound.”

“A what?!” A voice, rubbed raw with screams, gasped out. There was no answer.

Note:  I got over eager and couldn’t resist powering through another chapter! (Mainly because the next chapters are going to take me a while). Enjoy, and thanks for reviewing!

“Chief!” The young lieutenant’s voice called out across the snow, echoing inside the building where Igneel found himself supervising. “Come see this!” The urgency in his voice brought the red-head outside quickly, trudging through the white fluff.

“What have you found, Laharl?” He rumbled, eyes scanning the area around them.

Iron Legends -- Chapter 12: The Beast’s Interlude

Series: Fairy Tail

Characters: Gajeel, Levy, plus appearances from Natsu, Lucy and others.

Genre: Hurt/comfort, Sci-fi

Note: This is intentionally short.  It’s something I ultimately decided was better as a standalone, and is kind of an intermission until we get into the storyline again.  This was something I felt was important character-wise. Takes place directly after Ch. 10.

“Damn it all!” A roar shook the damaged foundation, an iron fist swinging to knock a full desk across the lobby. His skull throbbed and burned with the tumultuous storm of emotions, roiling within him. Everything he thought he had, the peace he thought he had found, was ripped away from him. What a damn fool he was for thinking he could have a single thing he wanted.
