Second time’s a charm for writing Gajevy, right? Is that how it works? I hope I gave your lil request justice, @fornhaus! Please, enjoy!
Pairing: Gajevy Words: 865 Summary: It’s a stormy night, and even though Gajeel is a little hungry, he doesn’t mind protecting his favorite light sleeper.
The brief pauses between lightning and thunder will always
be the worst. Waiting for the abrupt crash of thunder is almost agonizing. These
are the exact reason why Levy decided she absolutely hates thunderstorms.
Much to her surprise, she isn’t the only one who dreads storms.
Pantherlily—basically her partner in crime during these times—is right by her
side when storms approach Magnolia. There is one person, however, who will
“What’s so bad about a little rain?” Gajeel scoffs at Levy
and Pantherlily as they anxiously prepare for the storm currently threatening
“The lightning is blinding,” Pantherlily hastily defends
himself, shutting his eyes.
“The thunder gives me a heart attack!” Levy adds
frantically, clutching onto headphones.
“It’s not doing anything to you.” Gajeel dismisses them with
a lazy wave of his hand.
“Sometimes the electricity can shut off,” Pantherlily
“P-Please, don’t jinx it,” Levy gulps, peering out the window
to find raindrops cascading across the glass. “I-I’m going to be in my room
until the storm passes. You guys can hang out here in the meantime.”
“You got any food in the fridge?” Gajeel asks, although he
only receives a shutting door in response. He clicks his tongue and shakes his
head. “Lily, do you—“ Expecting to find him as he turns around, he sighs when
realizing his cat had followed Levy inside her room.
“Whatever,” Gajeel mutters under his breath. “I’ll just
Within ten minutes, the pouring rain sprays across the roof,
the lightning illuminates the entire sky, and the thunder reverberates inside
the walls. Gajeel doesn’t acknowledge any of this, but he can’t help his eyes
from glancing at Levy’s door.
The light hanging above him flickers just slightly; Gajeel
reacts faster than his heartbeat. He is already opening Levy’s door by the time
the electricity goes out.
“Levy,” Gajeel says while entering the dark room.
“Gajeel,” Levy simultaneously whispers, watching his figure
approach her. “I’m scared.”
“I’m here,” he assures gently, sitting on the edge of her
bed and finding her curled up under the covers. From the sudden shine of
lightning, he notices Pantherlily resting at the end of the bed.
“Thanks,” she smiles gratefully after he removes his hands
from her ears to block out the thunder that shortly followed. “I didn’t hear a
“I guess my work here is done,” he responds. Despite being
in the dark, he can still make out his favorite tugged cheeks. He smiles to
himself, but it quickly disappears when he feels her hands forcing him closer
“Lie down with me until the storm is over?” Levy nearly
requests, scooting closer to the wall to give him space.
Not having the ability to ever say no to her, Gajeel
attempts to smoothly lie beside her without rocking the bed too much. He views
her back towards him silently. Even though he is above the covers, he can sense
her comforting body heat. Impulsively, he reaches towards her to twirl her hair
around his fingers.
“Normally I’m the one that plays with your hair,” Levy says
before freezing when there’s a distant rumble of thunder.
“There’s a difference between playing and braiding,” Gajeel
remarks with comforting fingers in her hair.
“The braids look cute on you,” she giggles, shifting closer
to him until her back touches his chest. “Tell me if I’m going too far.”
“You’re not,” he answers a bit too quickly. If anything, he
wants to go further than this, but he knows they shouldn’t. “The rain is pretty
relaxing, isn’t it?” he asks after a while.
“It’s cold,” she replies.
“It makes the sky so dreary.”
“But it’s still bright.”
“Are you disagreeing with me just to make me mad?”
“Maybe. Is it working?”
Gajeel smiles at Levy’s quick retorts, curious to know if
she’s smiling as well. He reacts on reflex when there’s another gleam of
lightning; he places his palms on her exposed ear until the roll of thunder
finishes. Before he’s able to remove his hand, Levy delicately grasps onto it.
The two are silent as she begins to tug his hand over her
until his arm drapes over her waist. The only sound that accompanies them is
the pouring rain that suddenly feels relaxing to Levy. Before she realizes it,
her eyes begin to close.
“Wake me up when the storm is over,” she says softly.
“I’m going to get hungry,” Gajeel states.
“I won’t know if you leave or not, anyway. Goodnight,” she
He’s able to sense Levy’s lie, knowing very well that she’s
the lightest sleeper he’s ever met. “Night,” he eventually responds.
It isn’t long until he feels her breathing settle into an
even rhythm that only translates into sleep. He absentmindedly runs his fingers
across her hair to pass the time, but he begins to find himself dozing off.
And even though he senses his stomach growling with the
thunder, he falls asleep and secures his protective arms around his favorite
light sleeper paired with his favorite tugged cheeks.
I accidentally hit play on my lock screen while trying to hold four bags and walk through a door, so Greek Tragedy by the Wombats started BLASTING from Spotify…I basically just burst into a Walmart in velvet combat boots playing theme music and it transpires that my immediate reaction was to run away??? Except I live in the middle of nowhere so now I’m standing in a DARK FIELD and I have no PEACH TEA and many REGRETS

I genuinely hope you find happiness in England, and I hope the nhs can help you- free healthcare rocks :> <3
ME. FUCKING. TOO. this year has been a /catastrophe/ for me as someone chronically and mentally ill and not getting the healthcare ive needed…
man like the month i just spent in London w Sam was so good and it was so good FOR me…before i left i was so sick, i didnt think id be able to do ANYTHING while i was there…but it was amazing, being able to be with someone i really loved, who wanted to help me manage all my problems without any complaints (they went and bought a ton of food that i could eat before i even got there bc i have weirdly specific dietary needs lmao) and it was just. so nice. we were able to watch out for each other and we both benefitted from it so much. i was still sick, i still had pain and fatigue and anxiety but i also had THEM and they didnt hold any of my disability against me even once. and after a relationship where i was routinely manipulated as a result of the help i needed just to live with my illnesses, it was…world-changing.
and if i could get good health care ON TOP OF THAT boy oh boy we are in business i might actually be able to really focus on my art again and start living the life i WANT
It wasn’t the first time he’d thrown himself in the
line of fire to protect her, and while Ladybug was always grateful to have
someone always looking out for her, she couldn’t help but worry that one day
irreparable damage would be done to him and she would be without her partner.
Chat Noir was reckless and often in peril, and most
of the time it was because he was covering for her in one way or another. As
years of their partnership went on, her fear of losing him built up over time. The
only thing she could do was build a dam over the river that was her feelings on
the matter, because she knew Chat Noir only wanted to protect her, and she
couldn’t fault him for that.
Today’s akuma attack, where she actually saw a sword go through her partner’s stomach,
broke that dam in one fell swoop.
It all spilled out and she completely freaked out,
and when Marinette freaked out she lost sight of everything and anything in her
immediate vicinity, and it was by sheer luck that she had her freak-out in a
completely secluded area with only Chat Noir as witness.
Hey you guys! I’ve been on Hiatus for the last 3 months. I’ve had a lot going on these past 3 months and my life has been really busy. Because of this, I haven’t had as much time to dedicate to this confessions blog as I would like. I wanted to make sure that when I come back, it will be because I will have as much time that I can dedicate to this blog as it deserves. So, the day my hiatus ends is June 19th. I can’t wait to start this blog up again, I miss it. And I know that you guys miss it too.
I haven’t been okay for awhile, and I’m sorry for the disappearance. I haven’t been chatty and I’ve not really been in the mood to chat. I’m not ignoring anyone, and I don’t mean to put things off, but I’m out of it and my health has been bad. I’ll get back to things when I’m in a better place, thank you ❤
