“Where’d you get the big scar on your tummy?” Her head slowly turned to the side out of curiosity, laughing at her father looking down to finally notice his lack of a shirt.
He made it seem that way.
The question put him off edge, and he didn’t want to scare Silver.
“Even after all these years…”
Both of them turned to the direction of the new voice.
Gray could’ve sworn that Juvia had a sixth sense for feeling his emotions as well.
“Don’t worry, snowflake! I’ll tell you how he got that scar.”
Gray handed Silver to his wife, and they all sat down.
She looked up and smiled.
“Long ago, your father was stuck in a battle, with no way to escape it-”
“Just like with deliora…?” The child spoke softy interrupting her mother.
“No…” Juvia looked at Gray. “This battle was…”
She paused, wondering how to explain.
Then Gray spoke up.
“Your mother was in the battle too! We were protecting the guild from evil…!”
“Ahh~!” Silver now listened more intently.
Juvia then spoke up. “There was an evil… Ice monster, who was trying to defeat us both…” She smiled, just then figuring out the rest. “The monster’s claws swung out trying to hurt me first, but then Gray jumped in the way!”
“Did you defeat it, dad?!”
Being enthusiastic about the subject was hard…
Gray planned to tell her the truth.
What little he remembered of his real family was the love and trust they all shared.
Long ago Gray decided he wanted to raise a child in that environment.
But he was glad Juvia made up a story to protect her innocence.
Looking at his wife playing with their daughter, he was then reminded of the reason he had the scar in the first place.
So the other day I went shopping with my mother and we dropped by this shop selling these cute little plushies, long story short I bought one and named it Darwin, since I love how cute he is I knew I had to draw him!! Enjoy~
A/N: This is my Christmas drabble exchange with @nalu-natic
It was supposed to be a Christmas theme, but then inspiration came to write this angst/fluff. I hope you like it anyway! :D I’ve written another drabble which is all fluff and Christmas. It will be called Cherry Liqueur ;)
He was the salamander, dragon in mind and flesh. Keeled over on his knees, the snow melted under scraped palms holding his body weight. Lacerations adorned his trunk from fierce combat, the salvation of Fairy Tail was at stake. Acnologia, the dark king stood between him and a future. There was no way he could lose, right? Vision hazy from previous blows, Natsu gazed upwards upon noticing blond strands of hair. Lucy Heartfilia stood before him, the same gentle loving smile reserved only for him. Compassion surpassing all others, her eyes were a vision of beauty.
“Natsu,” Soft, porcelain skin cupped his jaw “You’re reckless and so headstrong I could throttle you.” Her voice was weak “We’re better together, remember?”.
He couldn’t breathe.
A fine trail of blood trickled from her mouth. Time suspended. Glancing down, red staining her clothes at an alarming rate. Heartbeat rattling his rib cage, bile rose in his throat. Stomach acid was burning him, comparable to the tears forming in painful realisation.
The cost of centuries of hate. The cost of an insatiable lust for power.
“Lucy!” Her name was a choked, agonised cry against the howling wind.
“Natsu!” Green eyes flew open at the familiar voice, searching for the owner. Honey brown depths found his own, creases in her brow indicating concern and annoyance.
“What’s the deal with all the thrashing?” She rolled over, hitting his chest playfully “You’re the one, who rather obstinately, insisted on sleeping beside me. Yet neither of us appear to be getting any rest.” Instead of replying, Natsu trapped her hand lying above his heart. Lucy found herself pressed to his side, enveloped in a desperate hug. She could feel him bury his face into her neck. Sakura hair brushed her nose and the familiar smell of wood-smoke followed. Unconsciously pressing her lips to Natsu’s scalp in a soothing gesture, Lucy didn’t know what had gotten into him.
“Don’t go anywhere Lucy.” His tenor a husky, growl that made her recall the moment her future-self was killed. Natsu’s anguish and rage at her life being targeted.
I’m sorry, I started playing this game again for the 15th time or so and Ezel Berbier is still one of my favorite characters ever. Shady merch guy? Sign me the fuck up. I mean, he can literally change the law with trading cards that he made himself. This is such a great character aahhh
I didn’t want to do anything too detailed just yet, but I did want to do more stuff for my Beast Within AU. And I’m very much looking forward to Yaku and Lev nendroids so these. I honestly thought I’d had drawn Kuroo and Kenma first lol
Yaku, what are you doing? Oh well, kitties are kitties. Moving targets are fair game lol He has just a bit of tail envy. It’s okay Yaku I love your small fluffy tail.
O forgive me for whatever this is xD
