Naruto: Fairy Tail Chronicles
Earthland: Magnolia / Fairy Tail
Erza Scarlet was a prideful woman often called the strongest woman in Fairy Tail and she really was. She'd lost her parents as a child and being orphaned was kidnapped into slavery soon after. The torture she'd experienced while building the Tower of Heaven with the other slaves had nearly broken her, especially when she had lost an eye to her captors. After the ill-fated revolt in which only she had escaped she had lost her mentor, awakened her magic and experienced true despair when she realized just how hopeless her dream of true freedom had been.
She'd joined her mentor's guild—Fairy Tail—and tried to move on with her life. She made friends, enjoyed life as much as she could and had even started to fall in love with the blond idiot unconscious in the bed before her now. In the end though it had all kept coming back to the Tower of Heaven and her former comrades that finished building it. She had been ready to end it there...just her and Jellal...like it always been.
She was supposed to die that day...
She survived and continued moving forward, never stopping even when confronted with a released Kyuubi no Yoko bearing down at her and her comrades. She'd watched as the man she loved struggle to keep fighting even when his body was broken and his very soul seemed to be tearing itself apart. She'd seen him give his all for what he believed in and in the end she had fallen hopelessly in love with the reckless idiot.
"Naruto..." Erza whispered as she stared at his bedridden form.
He had confronted the man responsible for his parents' deaths and had emerged victorious before passing out from exhaustion. His body had been pushed beyond its limits, and were it not for the Kyuubi's presence in his body boosting his own life force then he would have died then and there. The battle had completely burned down the forest on the outskirts of Magnolia and in its place was now a very large canyon, a testament to the scale of the death match that had taken place.
"Er...za..." Naruto strained out as his eyes flickered.
"Naruto?" Erza asked hopeful.
"...I feel like hell," Naruto groaned as he turned his head to look over at her.
"...I was worried," Erza smiled as relief flooded her eyes.
"I'm sorry," Naruto apologized. "But it was something I had to do."
"I know," Erza nodded. Just the same as she had to confront Jellal at the Tower of Heaven and lay her past to rest, Naruto had to face the man responisble for all the pain in his life. "You came back."
"Yeah," Naruto smiled back. "It's over."
"No it's not," Erza shook her head at that. "It's only beginning."
"I love you."
"We should leave them alone for now," Mira sighed while holding a tray of food. "And I made this for them too."
"I'm sure Natsu will enjoy it more," Itachi mused as they turned away.
"...Are you ever going to smile?" Mira asked suddenly.
"...Excuse me?" Itachi paused and turned towards her.
"It's nothing," Mira shrugged and walked passed him.
"...Strange woman," Itachi whispered and followed after her.
Earthland: Magnolia / Fairy Tail
The tenth of October had always been just another day for Naruto even though it had been his birthday; he'd never had anyone to really celebrate it and to be honest he'd stropped caring a long time ago. But that changed when he had woken up this morning and realized exactly what this day would bring. This wasn't just another day...it wasn't even just his birthday...no...this was the day that he would marry the woman he loved more than the world itself.
"You seem nervous," Itachi commented.
"I'm getting married," Naruto responded with a look. "What's there to be nervous about?"
"You should calm down," Itachi suggested.
"I'm trying," Naruto sighed. "Here we go," he said as the 'dreaded' music from the piano started to play.
She was dressed in a long stunning white dress with a see-through veil obscuring her face as she approached. Escorting her down the aisle was Natsu and trailing behind her, holding the edge of her dress up off the ground was Mira. As she reached the end of the aisle Natsu let her go and sat down next to Lisanna while Mira moved over to the bridesmaids. Erza stepped up beside Naruto and smiled over at him beneath her veil.
"Dearly beloved," Makarov spoke from atop a large stool that allowed his to reach their height. "We are gathered here today to join together this man and this woman in the bonds of holy matrimony. If any person can show just cause why they may not be joined together, let them speak now or forever hold their peace," he paused and waited a moment before continuing. Do you Naruto Uzumaki take Erza Scarlet to be your wife, to live together in the holy estate of matrimony? Will you love her, comfort her, honour and keep her, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse, in sadness and in joy, to cherish and continually bestow upon her your heart's deepest devotion, forsaking all others, keep yourself only unto her as long as you both shall live?"
"I do," Naruto answered and the Guild Master turned to the redhead next.
"Do you Erza Scarlet take Naruto Uzumaki to be your husband, to live together in the holy estate of matrimony? Will you love him, comfort him, honour and keep him, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for better, for worse, in sadness and in joy, to cherish and continually bestow upon him your heart's deepest devotion, forsaking all others, keep yourself only unto him as long as you both shall live?" Makarov asked of her.
"I do," Erza nodded with a smile beneath her veil.
"Very well," Makarov confirmed. "Now for the rings," he said and Itachi approached with said rings.
"Erza..." Naruto trailed off and he slipped the ring onto her finger. "It's been a long road and we've lost a lot on the way but looking back on it I wouldn't change a thing. I love you more than anything else in this world and nothing will change how I feel."
"Naruto..." Erza smiled back as she slipped the ring she held onto his finger. "No matter what happens in the future that we are walking towards I will not regret any of it. Let us walk into that future together and see where it takes us."
"...I now pronounce you man and wife," Makarov declared. "You may now kiss the bride."
Naruto pulled her veil back and smiled before kissing her as her arms encircled his neck. Everyone assembled burst into cheers and clapping a moment later. The doors to the guild opened as the two pulled away and started walking down the aisle as confetti started to shower them. Once outside they spotted a full grown Gamakichi waiting for them dressed in a red coat, a large sword tied to his side and a pipe in his mouth. Naruto picked Erza up bridal style and jumped up onto the giant toad's head.
"Let's get out of here," Naruto grinned as he sat down with his wife in his arms.
They had a honeymoon at the Akane Resort to get too...
As Gamakichi took off in the direction the writing on the back of his coat came into view of those who were watching the newlyweds leave.
I'm ending it here on high note with the wedding and I'm keeping it short in typical epilogue style. I was originally going to include the Tenro Island Arc but I felt if I had done that then it would be like I was dragging it on. I know some of you are disappointed with that and the last chapter with Naruto VS Obito but to be honest I personally thought that was going to be canon for awhile with 'Madara' taking Sasuke's EMS to replace his own damaged eyes.
I've made several changes the more canon Naruto has progressed but initially when I started Obito really was Madara and had (1) sacrificed one of his eyes to use Izanagi to survive his battle with Hashirama, (2) had given up his other eye to awaken the Rinnegan in Nagato and (3) salvaged Obito's remaining Sharingan from his corpse back during the Third Shinobi War. Back then I had thought that he was training Sasuke up so he could take his EMS to restore himself to full strength before tackling control of the Juubi since back then there was nothing about the Rinnegan controlling the Biju or Mokuton being able to do anything but suppress them never mind control them.
That's what I was originally expecting back before the whole Edo Tensei shit Kishi pulled out of his ass that resurrected practically everyone including the real Madara. I had most of this story thought out back then and rearranged a few things after the 'big reveal' happened but it still progressed mostly like I had guessed (with several exceptions) and I'm pleased with how things turned out in this story. Thank you all for your support and I hope you enjoyed it.
