Super Quick sketch (sorry for the messy lines!) I am over the moon *_* I couln’t believe my eyes! Mashima keeps showing that Jellal is not some shy, submissive guy and Erza a dominatrix, but this, they were enjoying themselves <3
Thank you all so so much. To those who just joined me and those who have been here all along. I never thought I would get this far with this messy blog xD I’ve met a lot of you on here and I wanna say thanks :3
It seems like the panel below is getting interpreted in multiple ways, and the “dispel our darkness/erase our existence” part is bothering some people. So here’s my interpretation of what’s said in the raws.
The part in question is オレたちを消し去るくらいの輝きでいてほしい
輝きでいてほしい: This part means that Jellal hopes for Erza to shine brightly.
オレたちを消し去るくらい: And this part is a description of how brightly he hopes for her to shine.
And to break down the latter part:
オレたち: Referring to Crime Sorciere since it’s a plural pronoun. 消し去る: To erase くらい: To the extent that
くらい can also be read as 暗い, which means dark, but it’s not what it means in the sentence used. In fact, “darkness” isn’t explicitly mentioned in the sentence.
What Jellal is saying is that he hopes for Erza to shine brightly. And how brightly? So bright to the extent that that it can erase their existence (which is of darkness).
The emphasis here should be on Erza shining brightly, not the “erase their existence” part.
The whole sentence reads as その時はオレたちを消し去るくらいの輝きでいてほしい. The reason why I say that Erza shining brightly is the main point of it is because you can take out the middle part, and the whole sentence still makes sense and is complete. Taking away the middle part would give その時は輝きでいてほしい, which means “When that happens, I hope that you’ll be shining brightly.”
The middle part of the sentence which talks about “erasing our existence” is just an elaboration that describes that brightness. I don’t think we have to worry too much about Jellal having overly dark thoughts when looking at his encounter with Erza.

Based on an unfinished sketch by Mashima sensei a fan spotted during Fairy Tail’s 10th Anniversary exhibition. This is what I could make from it and yes, it was a mix between a tracing and tweaking while trying to making of something out of a blurry sketch considering that the fan who took the photo, took it from afar.
