Ironbound Extras - Something to Live For

Nov. 30th, 2011 | 03:46 pm
posted by: acidic_fire in corrose

Whenever I write, I'll cut out the bits and pieces that I feel don't fit the story when I'm editing, but sometimes I really like the bits that I cut, even if they don't necessarily match the character/scene that they're supposed to. When I was writing Something to Live For I had several scenes during the in-between of Lenora's growing-up that I cut because Gajeel seemed too OOC because adding all those bits, while giving a great look into their lives, would have taken away from the power of the main storyline. 

This is one of the cut scenes that didn't make it to the final edit, but I really loved it enough to polish it up and post it here. 

3 years of missing her...Collapse )



For some extra heartbreak, a bit of my reasoning behind Gajeel's reaction to Lenora's first word. To refresh your memory, here's the snippet copy-pasted from the story.

1 year in...Collapse )


The reason that Gajeel responded so strongly to Lenora's first word wasn't because of something like fatherly pride or anything like that. It's because it was a sudden, very tangible reminder that one entire year had gone by without Levy, that he'd managed to somehow fuddle his way through the awful days that followed her death and successfully raise their Lena to that point without Levy, something he never thought would be possible in the blackest days right after he lost her where he thought he was going insane with grief.

By putting his head down and forcing himself to live solely in the present-tense, he'd managed to tunnel-vision his existence down to Lenora, tending her, taking care of her, being there for her, because at this point the loss is still so close that he can't think about it too much or else the weight of it would crush him. But when Lenora said his name, he nearly broke, because he knows in his heart of hearts that her first word should have been "mommy," and the fact that it wasn't, that it was "daddy" instead both kills him and overjoys him and he's suddenly caught up in the middle of all the emotions that he'd been trying to put away in the back of his mind, caught suddenly on the tipping point between despair and elation and it's only Lena's crying that manages to bring him back out of the darkness of his own mind, a physical reminder of why he still exists even though the pain is still so close and so intense.

Ironbound - Something to Live For

Nov. 15th, 2011 | 03:24 am
posted by: acidic_fire in corrose

Title: Something to Live For
Pairing: Gajeel/Levy
Words: 5000+
Rating: T
Summary: Without something to live for, he would have faded away from the heartbreak. 

Warning: Sad. Character death. 

but he stays because she needs him and he needs her...Collapse )


A/N - Ahh fuck me, why did I write this awful thing? I cried absolute buckets while writing this because I'm a stupid overemotional sap so I don't even – curse my hormones and my brain for conspiring to produce this horrible thing. I was miserable for days afterwards until I comforted myself with the thought that this will never happen never never ever. I think I'll have to watch the whole season of MLP just to get me out of this depressed rut I'm in now after finishing this.

Still, I just thought…Gajeel's always been prone to loneliness, so it's always been in the back of my mind that Levy's death would shatter him, far worse than if it was the other way around. If there wasn't a reason to stick around after, I just don't see him doing so. Also, the thought of Gajeel as a single dad is just absolutely fucking heartbreaking. I'm usually not a fan of kidfics in general, but…yeah. I guess I made an exception. And OOCness is just blah everywhere I mean even the kid is OOC (what child of Gajeel would allow herself to be bulled EVER?!) but I don't care.

About the name choice - I randomly chose Lenora, because it was the only name I could think of off the top of my head that was roughly similar to Levy, but I looked it up later and Lenora means 'shining light' and it fits so well that I couldn't have planned it better.

I hope everyone had a wonderful, safe, candy-filled Halloween! I apologize for not writing a Halloween-themed fic, but Felicia!Levy, Neko!Lucy, Toothless!Gajeel and Hiccup!Lily should be enough to take the sting off things!



This is out of place because I'm silly and I don't make posts on time!

Transverse: Silver and Green

Title: Silver and Green
Character: Gajeel Redfox, Severus Snape
Words: ~5000
Rating: T (potty mouth Gajeel) 
Summary: It must be some sort of fate, that their stories are so similar, but one person's mistakes don't define them, and while redemption comes at a heavy price, it's one that they're both willing to pay for the sake of those they love.


They walk the thankless gray line between light and dark in order to protect those they loveCollapse )

A/N - I really enjoyed writing this!
