So I suddenly thought of this while I was going to school (yeah I always have weird ideas while I travel to school loll)

What if Gajeel and Levy first really met when they were just a kid?
Gajeel and Levy first met outside Magnolia. They became friends. One day, Levy was attacked by some bad guys, Gajeel fought the guys but he got some serious cuts on his right arm (yeah the scars). Since Gajeel was only a kid he was still not that strong so when Levy got unconscious he carried her and escaped to Magnolia. But he was stilll being chased by the bad guys, he kept on running until he saw an old man infront of a building. Gajeel gave Levy to the old man and asked him if he could take care of her until he came back, the old man happily accepted. While running, Gajeel the shouted to the old man "Please tell her that the Iron Dragon will be back!". The building sign says "Fairy Tail" and the old man is the guild master Makarov...

Gajeel promised himself to become stronger so that one day he can protect the girl against any danger...

But then I realized that Levy, Droy and Jet are childhood friends and is said that they joined Fairy Tail together. But who knows right?

Wouldn't that be something. Imagine the guilt Gajeel would have felt when he found out the girl he hurt and pinned to the tree was the same one he wanted to get stronger to protect.

I would love if you did a whole fanfic on this. Very good idea.

Well ... Interesting but probably not the case.
And if the OVA in whichTeam Natsu go back to the past. Levy, Jet and Droy didn't exactly entered together, together. But formed a team quickly ... After Levy lost a game (and a bet?) against Kana.

Still, I too would like to know more about both of them ^^

Um... Gajeel beat the crap out of Levy, Jet and Droy to start the Phantom Lord- Fairy Tail guild war.

If they were friends, why did he beat her up so badly? Your story is a cute one, ind i love it, but seriousley, there's no way he can possibly have been friends with Levi before he joined Fairy Tail.

Well I know that.. :iconotlplz: its just like some AU-ish story I came up. There is really 100% impossibility to my story but I was just sharing an idea I randomly thought of...

I am halfway done with the fic based off of this story.

I have a question. Can I use this picture on the fanfiction website and on DA as the cover art for the fic?

Oh thats so nice! I cant wait to read it =w=

Sure no problem to me ^^

Hope you liked it.

I read it.. its amazing! :iconasdfghplz:

I didn't expected it to be AU, but its soooo awesome I really love it =w= 
And I'm happy that I helped to inspire a great fanfic :iconrazycryplz:
LeonAlmalsy Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013
Thank you. That means a lot.

I figured it had to be AU because if he were to do everything in my fic and still be the Gajeel we know, the wall that Gajeel would have to climb would be so high because of the added betrayal of hurting his oldest friend. I didn't want to do that to him.

Besides, I'm pretty sure that meeting Levy as a child would change Gajeel's life for the better. Right?

I'm glad that you loved it. Really makes me happy.

You're Welcome! 

Hmm.. I just realized it just now... yeah Gajeel would be a much more of good guy than he was in the Phantom Lord... :>
