Sure, I’ll draw my OTP of RAVE then ♥♥♥
I agree with you 100% anon. You brought up exactly the arguments I would use in this case.
a) Juvia hasn’t “stalked” Gray since before she joined Fairy Tail, and even THEN, you could say she only stalked because she was a part of the guild that had kidnapped Lucy and destroyed FT, so of course she wasn’t just going to walk right up to Gray and his friends during the rebuilding of FT. Once they got to the resort/casino, and managed to catch Gray on his own, she finally plucked up the courage to speak to him, which was NOT that long after we first saw her “stalk.”
b) A stalker is also someone who is giving a person unwanted attention, and yet Gray and Juvia are actually close/good friends, who DO enjoy spending time together (otherwise they would never have become so close in the first place). And Gray has even gone as far as trying to peek on her when she was naked in the hot spring, so it is hardly unwanted when he even has gone out of his way to seek her out. Plus, he’s the one who brought up how well they work together in the first place, and they are often seen/paired up together, and he constantly goes to great lengths to keep her safe. In a real world situation, I doubt anyone would do these things for their “stalker” (they would just be encouraging their behavior). And that’s because Gray LIKES Juvia, even if it’s just as a friend at the moment (though Mashima constantly hints that it IS more than that).
So, Juvia IMO, doesn’t fall under the category of “stalker” in any real definition of the term. However, Gray and Juvia do fit the “tsundere” and “fangirl” manga stereotypes. The second Juvia is overly affectionate, or takes things into romantic territory, Gray immediately gets uncomfortable, yet he is irritated when other guys show her attention *cough* Lyon *cough* and has no problem when he’s the one initiating the intimate moments.
c) As you rightly said, why is Juvia’s quirk singled out as unhealthy, but it’s totally cool to promote alcoholism, exhibitionism, and even pedophilia (looking at you Warren and Doranbolt (even Erza has got his number))? There are a lot of quirks and humor in FT that are acceptable/humorous in the manga verse, but when you apply real world standards to them, suddenly come off unhealthy, and even criminal or dangerous. My point is, if you’re going to apply these standards to one character, you better be applying them to everyone, or don’t apply them at all. Otherwise you’re a biased hypocrite.
The fact is, if Gray and Juvia get together, the only thing it will be promoting, is that love can change someone’s life. Because they both had so much hurt and baggage, and in Gray’s case, he still does. Gray already helped Juvia through her problem (even if it wasn’t intentional on his part). Juvia is on the way to returning the favor IMO. ^__^
I agree completely, Maria. And seriously, all the stuff listed that gives a “bad message” (apparently) is for laughs. I consider Gray and Juvia in the more than friends, less than lovers stage right now. By the end of the manga, they will most likely be canon (if pairings are official).
I want to cry! That’s how excited I was to see an update *sniffles obnoxiously* Everythings okay again! T^T I’m so happy! <3333
Hehehe, yep. Everything is hunky dory.
Chapter 41 is UP!
Everything is laid bare… And…Lucy is…?!
Hope you guys enjoy this chapter! It’s lengthy (almost 8,000 words). Be sure to leave your thoughts!
-squishes ur face-
alright so for the longest time i’ve kept this huge document of notes that are NaLu specific b/c i’m in that deep man so this next thing is straight from my notes and stuff from the pov of Lucy i guess
Headcanon- Natsu and Lucy share two black wristbands that they trade off whenever they feel like (‘cause they’re just that chill). Originally, Natsu bought the bands so they had something to remember each other by if they got separated- kind of like doing the ft-hand-sign-thing. And for once, Lucy enthusiastically entertained his weird wish. But for some inexplicable reason that neeeeither of them knew, the wristbands became something symbolic and startlingly intimate that they’d look after lovingly day to day. And eventually, it evolved into a kind of game.
He’d start taking off the band and slipping it on Lucy while she was unaware, and vice versa. It was a silent game that they played, with only little giggles and smiles to be seen when they found another wristband on their arm upon waking up. Although, they never actually said anything about it aloud- in all reality, they just used the game as an excuse to be nearer to one another, even if they’d never admit it.
“I’m not sure why, but it quickly became a secret game between the two of us. We’d try to slip off the wristband and put it on the other person without them noticing. It was childish and dumb, but I think that’s why I liked it. I liked sharing something with just Natsu. Even though the objective was to get rid of the bracelet, I never wanted to- it was too exciting. Natsu would put the wristband on me while I slept, and I usually got him when he was sick on a train. I got to touch his hand. That was always something that got me- touching him.
Hmmm, well, if I had to pick just one guy I think it would be David Paetkau. His voice fits perfectly with what I imagined Galahad’s would sound like.
Anyone here watch Flashpoint???
