Metalicanna

This was written in collaboration with glitterspires, and also goes along with my day 1 fanart. Enjoy day 5 of my Gajevy week 2015 entries!

“No.”

“What? Why not?”

“Never in a million years.”

“What’s wrong with it?”

“I am never calling my child by that name.”

“Why not?”

“Don’t you think it’s a little intense?”

“No. Think about it Shrimp, who’d want to beat up a kid named after a bad-ass dragon? Metalicanna Redfox, I think it has a great ring to it.”

Levy gave her husband a look that could curdle milk. “No.”

“Well, you got any other ideas?”

“Yes, and that’s why the hat is filled with all of those little pieces of folded paper.”

Gajeel plucked another slip from the fedora stationed on the coffee table while he sat cross-legged on the floor, leaning on the coffee table in boredom. Levy sat on the couch, one hand gently stroking her over-sized babybump.

“Shrimp, I can’t even pronounce this one.” He said as he held up the little piece of parchment. Levy squinted at her handwriting for a second before recognising what it was.

“It’s pronounced Ah-rail-lee-uh. It means gold in Latin.”

“Nah, too hard to say. I do appreciate the metal reference though,” he said as he pointed at her with a raised eyebrow. “Your turn Lev.”

Levy struggled a bit to lean over and grab another folded paper strip.

“Pa- are you serious right now?- Pantherlily? You want to name our child Pantherlily?”

“Yeah, who’d want to mess with a kid with a name like that? Named after a bad-ass cat.”

Levy sighed, “Do you have any ideas that do not include naming our child after “bad-ass” individuals in your life? Not to mention, we’re having a girl, Gajeel. A GIRL.”

“Hmmm.” Gajeel pondered. “What if we just shortened it to Lilly then?”

The blue-haired script mage face-palmed in frustration. “Just pick another one.” She said.

The Iron Dragon Slayer reached into the hat and pulled out a gently folded scrap of notebook paper. It was slightly larger than the rest, and the paper didn’t match the kind Levy had so painstakingly trimmed to perfection. He opened it and began to read its contents.

‘You should name your baby Haruka because it means spring and my name means summer and I get to be the godfather right? So I get to help pick the name right? Also, it has the same first two letters as Happy’s name so its perfect. No need to thank me, just make me her godfather because that is such a cool name.’

Gajeel dropped his head to the table’s surface and shook it back and forth.

“What’s it say?” Levy inquired. Gajeel handed her the scrap of paper and she began to read it.

“That’s not a bad name actually. Haruka is pretty cute.”

“No,” came the slightly muted response from the Dragon Slayer.

“Why not?”

“‘Cause Salamander suggested it.”

“That’s really not a good excuse to ignore a perfectly lovely name you know.”

“Your turn Shrimp,” Gajeel said as she picked up the fedora and held it in her direction.

“Ugh, fine.” She fished through the slips until she grabbed one she silently prayed would be “the one.” Who knew that naming a child could be so torturously frustrating.

“Makarov.” Levy deadpanned. “Gajeel, seriously, you do know we’re having a girl right?”

“Yeah, but think about it. Who’d want to…” Levy interrupted her husband to vent her irritation.

“What is your obsession with people messing with our kid? YOU are her father, and I am her mother. NOBODY is going to want to bring about the wrath of this baby’s parents!”

She shoved her hand back into the hat and grabbed a handful of the little papers. One by one she went through them, tossing the rejects onto the floor.

“No…no…no…no… Metalicanna again?”

“I still think its a good idea…”

Levy took a deep breath to keep herself calm, overcoming her hormonal desire to choke the living daylights out of the father of her child. “Probably not for a girl,” she explained with forced tranquility.

It was Gajeel’s turn to sigh as he snatched another paper from the hat. “Vana.”

“Its another reference to metal.”

“Its not bad.”

“Okay, put it in the keep pile.”

“Where’s that?”

“Make one.” Levy reached in the hat yet again. “Aiko. See, was it so hard to choose a nice name like this one? Why aren’t all of yours nice like this?”

“That’s not mine Shrimp, look.” He pointed at the heart that dotted the “i” in the name, a characteristic marking Lucy as the author.

“Oh. How did they manage to sneak their notes in here? Anyway, the next one says,” Levy said as she unfolded another one. “Oh, this one’s another one of mine. Its Kaida. It means little dragon.”

“Keep.”

“Yay!”

“Oi, we’re on the last one already Shrimp.” Gajeel pointed out as he picked up the final strip of folded parchment. He opened it and shot a devious look at his wife.

“What is it? What does it say?”

Handing her the paper he stood up and walked out of the room. Levy looked down at the scribbled name and screamed, “GAJEEL!”

She tossed the paper to the floor and huffed into the kitchen where her husband was innocently crunching into an apple. The paper landed face up to reveal a single word.

‘Metalicanna.’

When I first watched LOST I automatically hated Kate (played by Evangeline Lilly) because she was immediately scripted as the woman in the ‘white lead love triangle’ and because she cried a lot and needed boys to save her but then also knew how to do hand-to-hand combat, ugh what a Mary Sue. She gives feminism a bad name. I was also in my early 20’s.

When I watched LOST again I consciously made the decision to love Kate and find reasonable, relatable reasons for everything she did (like I would always give attractive male characters automatically) and it became clear that she had no real desire to be in any stupid 'white lead love triangle’ and she fiercely loved all women and Claire was her darling girl who she’d kill for and Sun was her bestie 5eva and she had all these lady-romances in her past and she kicked ass and protected women and was also extremely compassionate and was okay with being vulnerable sometimes.  I was in my early 30’s and I’d gotten over my internalized misogyny.  It felt good.

Comic Con: Marvel Previews Ant-Man and Avengers: Age of Ultron

External image

Denied from Hall H by virtue of schedule and ballroom capacity BUT I’m here to give you the highlights of the panel by virtue of Twitter and Marvel’s live panel.

-The panel opened with Marvel giving a retrospective of the previous Marvel films set to the score from Rudy but it ended with a look at Thanos, who made a brief appearance in the after credits sequence of The Avengers.

-Kevin Feige opened with some nice sentiments about how Comic Con meant so much to the Marvel folks because it all started in that room. He also mentioned that the panel will focus on 2015.

Ant-Man
-Ant Man kicked off the panel with a few “surprises.” Corey Stoll has officially been confirmed as Darren Cross, the villain, also called Yellow Jacket. Evangeline Lilly is playing Hope Pym, Hank Pym’s daughter. Stoll’s character was Hank’s menthe but has taken the company in an evil direction so he recruits Rudd to be the new Ant-Man. Lilly apparently hasn’t read the script yet.

-Ant-Man is set to start production on August 18 in Atlanta.

On the footage

ANT-MAN looks a lot like demo footage. because it’s demo footage. they start shooting in two weeks. admittedly, not that cool. #SDCC

The Avengers 2

-The cast entered to the tune of Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough”. Of note, newcomers Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany (Vision) and James Spader joined in on the fun.

-The cast basically played the charm game to the audience. RDJ said that he becomes less significant with each new addition to the cast. Jeremy Renner, whose part in this new film is set to be expanded, said that Robert convinced him to do The Avengers by washing his car in a thong. Chris Hemsworth even joked about the recent controversy about Thor being a woman that it’s something he’d like to see happen in the movies and that it might the role to get him an Oscar. HA! Newcomer Paul Bettany jumped into the fray saying that it’s been the most exciting thing that’s happened to his children.

-They screened footage from the film which seemed pretty epic. There was a party sequence which sees all the Avengers and Rhodes (!) try and lift Thor’s hammer. Of the group, Captain America manages to move the hammer a little (be still our Thundershield hearts!). There was then a montage of various footage: Black Widow fighting with a new suit, Iron Man in his Hulkbuster armor going at it with Hulk, our first look at Ultron who says the only way to peace is through the destruction of The Avengers and Andy Serkis playing a human. The footage ended with a scene of Iron Man in space with the rest of the Avengers seemingly dead around him.

-The panel ended with Josh Brolin coming out on stage with the Infinity Gauntlet and being announced as Thanos. I’m slightly bummed they didn’t share any Phase 3 titles, but this was a cool moment.
