Fanfiction series: Odds and Ends
Title: Mirrored
Pairing: Gray/Juvia, some EdoGray/EdoJuvia
Rating: K+
Word count: 803
Summary: Gray suffers a culture shock upon meeting their Edolas counterparts. His Edolas self is definitely different.... And so is Juvia....
Notes: I have an unhealthy obsession with Edolas arc it seems... meh, like I care... Based on the premise Edolas' FT comes to help. This is in the aftermath.

Gray couldn't help it. He gaped like a fish out of water. That was him? That spineless bundle of clothes? He knew this world was crazy and different but this much? And his other self was trailing after Juvia. Juvia who was happily ignoring him!

"Gray! Gray! What's wrong?" a persistant hand was waving in front of his face, a hand that belonged to a concerned stellar spirit mage.

"That... that..." he couldn't even get out a complete sentence.

"What's wrong with- whoa! That's your Gray?"

It was the other Lucy, the one in black revealing outfit and with more attitude than ten ordinary people. She was looking him up and down and then-

"Where are his clothes?"

Gray looked down at himself. Crap! It had been less than a minute and his shirt was already gone. He hastily threw it on again and buttoned it with trembling fingers. The other Erza, he could deal with. A different armor and a sword and several extra levels of bitchiness were acceptable. Heck, he could take even Mistgun turning out to be both Gerard and a prince. And as for Fireball Natsu... Gray had a good laugh about it. Edolas Levy scared him a bit. But his own counterpart was more like a parody of himself.

"So this is what is hidden underneath all those clothes?" Edolas Juvia joined their conversation and it was unbelievable how similar the voices were and yet the intonation and stress made them completely different. "I'll have to work harder on making our Gray lose his."

Gray Fullbuster wanted to disappear right that moment. Gray Souroge looked as if he felt the same.

"Juvia-chan, I told you I have a poor blood circulation and...."

Gray tuned the rest out, instead opting to watch Mystogan's preparations for their departure. How long did it take to open a portal between worlds, anyway? The sooner they were out of there, the better.

"Now, that's what I call ripped, don't you agree, Lucy?" Juvia's voice - the other Juvia's - carried over to him.

"Mhm. You are right Juvia. Other me, is your Gray doing that often?"

"All the time."

What were they talking about? Did they get the other him to strip? A stray breeze made Gray aware that the only stripping around had been done by him. Again. Cursing in his own head, he swore he would pay more attention to what he was doing. The other Juvia was watching him with a predatory glint in her eyes and he didn't trust that expression. It was not at all like their Juvia.

Their Juvia might have been watching him all the time but her expression was different. It was gentler and she was never forceful. Once you got to know her, she was a pleasant companion. And her eagerness to please and to fit in with the rest of them was adorable. Like when they had shared their food on the day everything had gone to hell. Or to Edolas, there wasn't much difference in Gray's mind between the two.

And Gray would be lying if he said the attention didn't flatter him. But there was a sharp distinction between being admired from afar and being eyed like a piece of meat on a display. No, he couldn't wait to get back to Earthland and to his Juvia, leaving this whole event behind.

And it seemed his prayers had been answered for Mystogan had apparently finished with his preparations.

"Better say your goodbyes. I'll open the Anima soon."

They were finally going home.


It was almost surreal, stepping onto the Fiore's soil again. Magnolia Town stretched around them looking as always and the guild building was towering over their group, its gates opened invitingly.

"Ah, it's good to be home," Natsu grinned widely. "Edolas was too weird."

"Tell me about it," Lucy agreed. "Though I can't wait to tell everyone about their Edolas versions."

"He, he," Natsu cackled with almost a fiendish glee. "Make sure you tell them about Gray. That was one of the funniest things there."

Gray glared at him. He had to bring that up, didn't he? Well, he had a retort ready.

"Don't forget to mention the Fireball, Lucy. I'm sure the others will love to hear about him."

The glaring contest between Natsu and Gray intensified but before it could proceed to blows, a new voice interrupted.

"Gray-sama," Juvia stood there, blushing and looking at Gray. "Welcome home. Juvia is glad you are back safe."

"Yeah. It's good to be home," Gray echoed Natsu's earlier words. And then he strode forward, catching Juvia's arm and pulling her after him. "C'mon, I need a drink after that adventure. Let's see what Mira has to offer."

"S-sure, Gray-sama."

Yeah, it was definitely good to be home.

Gray and Juvia IS a lovely pair, and there should be more of it dangit!
You write in Gray's voice so well~
I love the concept of this, mostly 'cause Edo/Earthland meetings are just so interesting! I really wish the mangaka would spend more time on it...and romance...and side characters...and side character romances...
I'm pretty torn between just basking in the subtleness or demanding more romance. XD

Thank you :D

I'm actually more for subtleness, at least at this stage. More romance will come in (shameless self-promoting) my fic Unleashed where I will have time to build it properly.
