It was a blast guys! I wasn’t able to make it Saturday, but I made sure to wake up early enough to join in on the march today. Met so many friendly people and it was overall a very positive event! Saw a lot of people sporting colors for their various identities and finding people they could relate to. I went as Dasva Redcloud and took up the asexual colors <3
Some screenshots I got from the NA pride marches! Sadly I didn’t get nearly any screens from day one but today I got a lot more. Totally worth losing one night of sleep for this, haha! The community is so amazing!
A few screens from Sunday’s march, from Lion’s Arch to Ebonhawke. It was really an amazing event and experience, to see so much love, support, and inclusiveness being spread across Tyria. Thank you to @opencommunity for organizing the march, and really, thanks to everyone who came out to support the event; I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did.
Gajeel doesn’t remember much about his own childhood. Sometimes he wonders if this memory loss is a side effect of the unintentional time travel or if his childhood was never anything to shout out about in the first place, but his memories begin with Metalicana. He doesn’t remember the warm embrace of his mother, or the sound of his father’s laugh, or what it feels like to be tucked in every night, safe in the knowledge that a loving presence is only nearby.
And that’s fine.
He’s never needed any of those memories, preferring the ones he has with his dragon instead; the late nights sat huddled by a fire, with Metalicana’s tail wrapped around him like a sort of makeshift blanket; the early morning flights, cutting through clouds as the sun rose around them; the sound of Metalicana’s laugh, rough, grating and irritating but like music to Gajeel’s ears.
Those are his childhood memories, and he treasures them, but for his children he wants better. Wants their memories not to be tinged with the lingering sense of sadness and abandonment that followed him from his childhood right the way into adulthood. Wants them to know that they’ve always been loved, right from the very beginning. There will be no period of confusion, of loss, of uncertainty and loneliness for them, Gajeel makes sure of that immediately.
Here I’m going to post my favorite 25 NaLu moments. Since they have a lot of moments, it was hard to pick just 25 (and keep in mind that this is manga only, no anime, meaning there’ll be no filler moments, nor movie moments). Since I don’t want this to get too long, I’m going to split it into 2 parts (25 through 16, 15 through 1). Also, this is MY OPINION only; my favorite moments. You don’t have to agree with me, or say ‘the other moment should be higher’ or ‘why didn’t you include that moment here’. I love all NaLu moments, but there are some that just make my heart go ‘whoooooa’ and those are the ones I’ll include here. It’s not spoiler-free, so if you’re not updated on the current arc, I suggest not to read it.
