(I haven’t written fairy tail in forever so it might be ooc but this was just in my head so i HAD TO WRITE IT!)
“So… where did I come from?!” Iggy looked up wide-eyed at his father, who had just finished telling him the story of the dragon who he was named after.
“Yeah!” Again, his wide eyes looked up at his father, who for some reason looked… embarrassed about something.
Natsu’s face turned red. Igneel might’ve explained a few things to him at that age (much of which he didn’t understand at the time), but that certainly didn’t mean he was going to explain this process to his own six-year-old.
He instead smiled nervously and scratched the back of his head.
“Luce!” Natsu called from the other room, and almost immedialty saw Plue’s gead sticking in the doorway.
“What is it?” Her voice was slightly frustrated, as if she was just in another writing streak, and her ideas might leave if she didn’t write them down soon.
Although her expression immedianlty changed after seeing her husband and child cuddling together.
“He wants to know where he came from!” Natsu laughed nonchalantly, as if he didn’t remember that exact night.
Lucy’s face turned red too, and Natsu laughed, but she composed herself soon after, and walked over to sit down with both of her boys.
“Well…” She slowly lifted her son into her lap. “What brought that question on?”
“Dad came from a dragon!”
“…a dragon?” She smiled questioningly at Natsu, and he smiled and shrugged in return.
“and you came from a castle!”
“Aye! It was so big, like she was a princess or something!” Happy chimed in, just flying into the door, seemingly waiting for the perfect chance to come in.
“Hey Happy!” Natsu smiled. “Lucy’s about to tell the story about where Iggy came from.”
“Fufufu… I know this one! Lemme tell it Lucy!”
“No.” She death-glared the exceed, and turned around to smile at her son.
“Well…!” Lucy took a second to compose her thoughts. “Right after your dad and I got married…”
Natsu showed off his ring to little Iggy.
“We decided we wanted a bigger family, so…”
“Fufufu this is the good part!”
“Shut it Stupid cat!”
Iggy laughed, and Natsu interrupted.
“She summoned her maid!”
“Yes! I summoned Virgo, and asked her to take me to the Celestial Realm!”
Iggy’s eyes sparkled.
“While there, I spent the day talking with all my friends!”
Plue finally walked over to them. “Pun, pun!”
Natsu stared for a second, and then suddenly lit up. “You’re right Plue!” He burst out. “She did talk to the giant moustache man!”
“The Celestial Spirit King!”
Little Iggy was all ears.
“I begged him for something that would make our family whole, and he blessed me with a baby!”
“And when she came home from the Spirit Realm, it was 8 months later!”
Lucy just stared at Natsu for a minute before looking back down at her son.
“Then we named him-”
“AFTER THE DRAGON~!”
“And we all loved him very much. the end.”
That’s all he needed to know.
