shopping au

There are five (5) types of Erza popular in fanfiction! Also most of my experience is coming from the nalu fics I read, so I’m sure Jerza/Erza fics fall into different tropes! Please keep that in mind!

1) Cake!Erza. Did you know that Erza likes strawberry cake? Because she does. Like, a lot. She’s always eating cake. Coffee shop AU? Eating cake. Canonverse AU? Cake. Post apocalyptic? Cake. She eats cake. It’s her entire character. Omnomnom

Sometimes included, but not required:

  • May be mixed with other brands of Erza to dilute the trait, but on it’s own it’s super obnoxious.

2) Strong Woman™. No matter the fic genre, Erza will be overly aggressive and borderline abusive towards her friends. Will hit anyone who disagrees or does something she doesn’t like, mostly notably Natsu and Gray. Usually this is played off as comic relief. (Note: this is not inherently bad in fics, but it does make me uncomfortable at times!) Besides the aggression, Erza will never lose a fight. Because she’s strong. Super strong. In case you couldn’t tell.

Sometimes included, but not required:

  • Typically featured in canonverse, but can filter into AUs, notably high school AUs. 

3) The Boss™. Erza is the superior of one of the other characters in an AU. Her role in the fic is to be the hard ass boss that is also the best friend. ??? Not much character outside of this. This can be paired with #1 and/or #2 for maximum chaos.

4) Well-rounded Erza. Has a strong character that doesn’t exaggerate any of her traits. Tough love™. Has a soft spot for cute things. Would do anything for her friends. Just a very nice character 10/10 would recommend. Probably has some kind of relationship issue with Jellal (past relationship, unrequited love, etc) but this doesn’t make up her entire character. Is allowed to be emotional and more than just the strong girl.

5) Jellal’s girlfriend!Erza. She’s Jellal’s girlfriend/crush/she likes him. This is her entire character. She just… really loves Jellal.

So, that’s how many words I’ve written for Stony in the past couple of years.  Whoo-boy.  Hard to imagine.  But, what fun it has been!  This is the best and most generous fandom, I swear.  Amazing writers, artists and readers all around.

Now that Celestial Navigation is finished, I plan to return to What Happens in Vegas and finish that up, then the other Thank You Fic requests I received.  I also owe a certain someone a Stucky fic.  I’m thinking high school coffee shop au kidfic?  Ha.  Yeah, no.  Naturally, I shall make it full of angst and pain. I think I also managed to accidentally come up with the only idea for a Stucky fic that in no way interferes with Stony.  *sigh*

So, that’s what’s on the agenda!  Thanks to everyone for following along with…whatever this is.

Drarry Coffee Shop AU
