のじ(夏♂) - DO NOT REMOVE SOURCE. DO NOT REPOST ANYWHERE WITHOUT SOURCE.
an incredibly overdue fanfic about childhood friends mending their strained relationship. mentions of Juvia’s love for Gray, Lucy and Lisanna friendship moments, and some Graylu if you squint, but other than that this is solely Nali/Natsanna. There’s a little bit of fluff, but it can be seen as platonic too. I listened to this wonderful playlist while writing. I hope you enjoy! [This fanfic is also on AO3.]

"S’not fair." Was the mumble that came from the pinkette’s lips, the same mumble he’d been mumbling the past week or so, one that only caused the blue cat flying by at shoulder height to roll his eyes at it. Moving his lips along in time with the boy’s complaint. "How come Lisanna gets to go on S-Class jobs and I don’t?"
"Because she’s Mira’s sister?" The cat would chirp, simply shrugging when he was met with a glare, one he was more than used to at this point. "Ask to go next time."
Hand moved to the back of the boys neck, rubbing a little, slipping under white scarf. “It’s not just that, we never get to spend time together anymore, she’s always off doing those S-Class jobs with Mira and Elfman, I wanna see my friend.” He grumbled, feet scrunching on the ground as they drew ever closer to the guild hall, come to think of it, the Strauss siblings should be home that day.
Natsu found his feet moving faster.
"You likkeeeee her~" Happy purred, swerving in the air to avoid the hand that came out to hit him, even if no words were said and there was a tiny brush of pink over the Dragon Slayer’s cheeks.
Maybe he did, so what? Lisanna was his best friend, his first friend.
Nose twitched the closer they came to the guild, and when a familiar scent caught his nose Natsu took off at a run, a bright grin on his face.
They were already back, Lisanna wa—
The door opened with a slam and all eyes fell upon him. The whole guild was huddled in a group, odd to say the least unless someone was fighting, but it was different, the air about it was different. There was silence as every set of eyes watched him, besides the odd sob, eyes flicked from one person to another.
To Gray who seemed to be biting the side of his mouth, to Cana who had wrapped her arms around her, to the new comer Loke who seemed to be resting a hand on the card mages shoulder. Marco and Wakaba who stood to the side, the Master, who was dressed in his official robe as a Wizard Saint, and Erza who had her arms wrapped around someone.
"N-Natsu…" And at last his eyes fell upon whom the guild had surrounded, covered in bandages and tears running down their faces, Mirajane and Elfman Strauss.
Happy instantly flew into the crowd, being pulled into the Take-Over Mage’s arms for a tight hug. But all Natsu could do was stand in the doorway, feeling so suddenly cold, the feeling only matched the one he had felt five years ago, when he had woken up to find himself alone.
"N-No." He uttered out, shaking his head and taking a step back, a few of the elder guild members stepping a little closer, as if in fear they would need to hold the volatile Dragon Slayer down if he flew into a rage. "H-How?" He asked, tears stinging in his eyes as he fought them back.
"I t-thought I could c-control it." Came the deep voice strained in tears, hazel eyes flicking to that of Elfman, eye covered in a patch and looking just as beaten up as Mira.
Elfman killed her.
Natsu was moving before he knew he was, feet running on the ground of the town streets, the such bright day a moment ago now feeling dull and dead, his hair covering what his scarf could not of his face as he ran, tears catching in strands of pink as they were forced back with the speed in which he ran.
She was gone.
Lisanna was gone.
He was alone again.

More coming soon, I’m ahving way too much fun with these
while I don’t ship NaLi, I still enjoy their friendship (that’s what Fairy Tail is all about right?) so here is them just chilling. Natsu made a wisecrack about Gray’s stripping and Lisanna found it pretty funny.
His voice is almost too low
As he says,❝I love you forever, forever and always
Please just remember even if I’m not there
I’ll always love you,
forever and always❞
