**warning: this was supposed to a cute quick post about Nalu but I ended up getting too deep on Natsu’s side of things woops ¯\_(ツ)_/¯**
If you ever have doubts that Natsu and Lucy love eachother in the more than a friend type of way just remember drunk Lucy gets all blushy and excited & has hearts all around her because she thought there were 2 Natsus
call me crazy but I’m pretty sure you don’t react like this to people that are just your “friends”
you don’t just get heart eyes for anyone aight like she’s so in love
remember wayyy back when Levy and Juvia tease Lucy about liking Natsu and Lucy responds with:
then fast forward to now
like she’s not even denying that she’s head over heels for him hello I really feel like at this point for her she realizes that she does indeed love him
As for Natsu, for someone that is super expressive and speaks his mind, he doesn’t really show the same signs Lucy does. He hardly gets embarrassed or flustered, has no problem getting super close to Lucy’s face, or even seeing her naked except in the chapter 438 when Lucy’s towel fell off lmao he was hella caught off guard It’s obvious that he does have a soft spot for her but is it the “more than a friend” type of way? Of course I could dig up anytime he’s been super overprotective of her, when future Lucy died and he cried, when he tried to kiss her bc Asuka was wanted them too, or even the time that him and Lucy fought Kain which people like to think is when Natsu realized he “loved her.” but I’m only going to talk about 3 moments (realistically 1 which you’ll see but I thought the other 2 moments were kinda significant) in particular that make me believe that Natsu does see Lucy as much more than a friend:
When Natsu dug up a rainbow sakura tree for Lucy when she was sick
Ok so this moment isn’t necessarily me trying to prove Natsu was/is in love with Lucy especially since this was still in the early episodes and I’m one of the few that believes they barely even acknowledged their “feelings” once Natsu returns from his one year training mission after Tartaros but can we just talk about how ROMANTIC this was?? and they both didn’t even realize it? Natsu straight up dug up a huge ass tree, put it on a boat, and sent it Lucy’s way because she was too sick to see them herself. when will your otp that’s actually canon ever
Natsu letting Lucy wear his scarf
OkAYY also with this one I knowww it’s just a cover and not even in the actual story BUT I still think it’s important because Mashima put it there for a reason!! Natus’s scarf, the thing his deceased father made him, the thing he treasures so much that he neverrr has it off even when he’s swimming, the thing both Lucy and Gray made sure to get back to him because they know how much it means to him, THE THING HAPPY CALLED LUCY A MEANIE FOR BECAUSE SHE ACCIDENTALLY TOOK IT OFF WHEN SHE WAS TRYING TO KICK HIM OUT OF HER BED and now she’s wearing it idk I feel like Mashima putting this is his way of showing us just how much their bond together has grown
When Natsu thought Lucy died
Alright so out of all the Nalu moments in the entire series I feel like this is the one where we truly see just how important Lucy is in Natsu’s life. Remember Zeref revealed that they were brothers and that if he were to die, then so would Natsu. Natsu was going to attack anyway until a crying Happy stopped him saying that he didn’t want him to die and Natsu basically agreed to temporarily retreat. Fast forward to the moment Natsu thought Lucy was dead, he cries and then END is awakened. And the first thing he wants to do is finish off Zeref. Natsu KNOWS that if he kills Zeref, he will die as well but at this point he doesn’t care because he thinks Lucy is dead. But really think about this. Natsu, the person that is always telling people to not give up and more importantly to LIVE, too not DIE for your friends but to LIVE for them, was basically heading into a suicide mission. way to be a hypocrite natsu lol “You can’t stop me anymore! No one can!”that line really got to me because I feel like it just shows how hurt he was. He really didn’t care about what would happen to him anymore, where not even Gray could reach him. He didn’t want to live in a world where Lucy didn’t exist.
alec always liked post battle showers, taking their time washing the grime and blood off of each other until exhausted limbs were ready for sleep. despite stepping in looking like they had both been through hell and stumbled out the other side, they’d step out of the shower with steam warmed skin, half lost in kisses and ready to sink into the sheets.
but what he liked far more than that, what they both liked more than nearly anything, were baths shared after a day so long neither of them felt like they’d see the end of it. days filled with clave related nonsense, both of them dealing with bureaucracy until alec’s teeth hurt and magnus was rubbing his own shoulders, growling at everything. it was nearly unspoken as they stepped through the portal, magnus tugging alec closer, their torsos pressed together his warm face tucked down against alec’s neck. it made alec shiver but he held onto him, dragging his fingers over the tight muscles of magnus’s back.
“i’ll get the bath ready.” alec’s whisper was caught in the warm air between them, magnus’s breath released in a sigh against alec’s deflect rune. but with it came a nod, though he didn’t release alec just yet, pressing a soft line of kisses down that rune before he did. it sent a shiver through alec but a distant, tired one. and then they parted in the breezy hallway, magnus already pulling his military jacket off, his shoulders slightly slumped.
I’m absolutely devastated about The Get Down being cancelled (though still hopeful that they can continue it in a few years with a timejump, it would fit where p2 left off very well), but I’m also so frustrated that this is the most active The Get Down tag has ever been (I’ve been tracking it since before p1 aired)….where were you all during the #renewthegetdown campaigns? There are so many usernames posting about the cancellation that aren’t at all familiar to me, and just….where were you?? It’s painful to go through the tag and see all of the complaints and negativity and know that even after we got new episodes, there wasn’t this much activity.
I just…love lance so much, so much that sometimes I think maybe I’m projecting or exaggerating his characteristics, but then I’ll watch an episode and it’s like,, he’s really like that,, he’s really so wonderful and worth loving and comforting and human, and I just don’t want to see voltron waste his potential
let me just begin by saying i made this blog nearly a year ago on july 18th, 2016, and during the period of time between then and now i took a rather extensive leave of absence from this blog in order to bounce to and from several others; and during that time i had come to the conclusion that i would more than likely NEVER RETURN to this blog – be it for one reason or another. however, despite my numerous doubts, i did in fact end up returning; and coming back to this blog truly, sincerely felt like COMING HOME after a very long journey. i really didn’t expect it to feel like such a relief, but here i am; and in turn, here you all are. i could not have asked for a warmer welcome back from any of you, and i honestly appreciate it so very much.. much more than i could ever hope to convey in words.
i could never hope to thank you all enough for accepting me back onto this blog and into this fandom with such wide-open arms – and while i do not view myself as bearing enough talent to do any sort of giveaway, a bias list/appreciation post is CERTAINLY in order. i will not be singling anyone out or sectioning this – just to avoid anyone feeling left out or under-appreciated in comparison to another. likewise, to avoid cluttering the dash, i will place this long, long list beneath a cut.
thank you again, i look forward to the many, many inevitable adventures ahead with all of you.
