Anonymous: How do you think you're gonna handle the scene with Natsu crying over F!Lucy's body when it's animated?
oh dear i was just thinking about this earlier too let’s see if my director’s brain can do this
[scene opens on a wide shot of the broken down dungeon]
i imagine the scene will look very darkly lit and hollow and mucky looking- trying to show Natsu’s depression over it and all. and it’ll play out real quiet like, no sound at all except Natsu’s desperate sobs with Ultear and Meredy looking on with pained expressions from a distance.
and since the anime sometimes adds on to the show maybe Ultear will restrain Meredy from going to help him and just shake her head no with an expression that says “nobody can help him right now”
[scene shifts to an overhead shot of Natsu]
and then Natsu will be over by fLucy’s body trying super duper hard to stop crying but he can’t he can’t because it’s Lucy laying there in front of him- and they’ll show a shot of his teeth grit in effort as he resolves his new attitude because what is crying going to solve. Nothing. And it sure ain’t bringing Lucy back.
[camera closes in on Natsu’s emotional face in a moment of realization]
then the scene will progress like in the manga with Natsu quick wiping his face and confronting Ultear about saving present Rogue
