I’ve decided to confess the full extent of my Fairy Tail ships, so buckle up and be prepared, because you’re in for a bumpy ride.
- Gray Fullbuster x Juvia Lockser
- Natsu Dragneel x Lucy Heartfilia
- Gajeel Redfox x Levy McGarden
- Jellal Fernandes x Erza Scarlet
- Laxus Dreyar x Cana Alberona
- Loke x Aries
- Elfman Strauss x Evergreen
- Romeo Conbolt x Wendy Marvell
- Fried Justine x Mirajane Strauss
- Sting Eucliffe x Yukino Agria
- Rogue Cheney x Minerva Orland
- Mystogan (Jellal) x Erza Knightwalker (Edolas)
- Alzack Connell x Bisca Connell (they’re married, after all)
- Natsu Dragion x Lucy Ashley (Edolas)
- Bixlow x Lisanna Strauss
- Scorpio x Aquarius
- Max Alors x Laki Olietta (x Broom)
- Happy x Charle
I have no excuses, and I don’t really need to try to explain myself. Shippers are gonna ship, haters are gonna hate, and I’m going to ship whoever I damn well please! But I don’t hate on other ships if I don’t agree with them. I might give my opinion, or reasons why I don’t ship it, but I won’t outright tell you your ship is dumb (unless you’re shipping Mest x Wendy for fuck’s sake people, she’s like 12 and he’s like 24 give it a rest, he’s like her older brother and I don’t appreciate one of my favorite characters being treated as a joke, or as a pedophile, thanks).
Gruvia is my OTP, and Nalu is my former OTP so they hold places close to my heart. Gajevy is so cute it hurts, although they had a very rocky beginning and I hated them at first, and Jerza is simply meant to be. Laxana is very near and dear to me, and Lories just tears me up inside. I can’t stop shipping them. Elfgreen is so tantalizingly canon or close to canon that it makes me want to see their terrifying children every day. And the rest is history.
I honestly used to have a headcanon that Master Hades was in love with Layla Heartfilia a long, long time ago, even though the age difference is massive. Don’t ask how or why, just know that it’s a thing.
As I said, shippers will ship, so I’ll continue with the list.
What, you thought I was done?
Not going to lie, I have a few secondary ships as contingency plans, so that I don’t get too upset if some of my ships are split up.
- Bacchus Groh x Cana Alberona
- Lyon Vastia x Juvia Lockser
- Eve Tilm x Lisanna Strauss
- Laxus Dreyar x Mirajane Strauss
- Gray Fullbuster x Lucy Heartfilia
Here’s a brief explanation: I love Bacchus’ character. He’s quirky and fun and the only person who can out-drink Cana. I love Cana. She’s fucking gorgeous and powerful and was my favorite female character before I fell in love with Juvia. So, in the event that my Laxana hopes and dreams are drowned, I also approve of Bacchus.
Gruvia is my otp of otps, but Juvia is my favorite character. Therefore, the reason that Lyvia is my second favorite contingency ship is because I want Juvia to be happy, and I feel like she could eventually learn to love the one that loves her, in the event that Gray never saw what she has to offer (which I highly doubt okay).
I have no excuses for Eve and Lisanna. When she first came back, my immediate thought was, “OMG you’re both tiny and cute I’ll ship it!”. For those of you who don’t remember, Eve is the snow mage from Blue Pegasus, part of the Trimens.
I think Laxus would dig “Demon” Mirajane. They would have some kinky sex. End of story.
Gralu, or Gracy, or whatever it is these days: hate to say it, since I love Gruvia, but I can see where this has potential. The interactions between Gray and Lucy are always good, whereas we Nalu fans are still wondering when she’s going to bitch at him for leaving her with just a note.
SHIPS I CAN ACCEPT (EVEN IF I DON’T SHIP IT)
I even have a few of these! There are some ships I understand but still don’t ship because of better compatibility with others. They come after my contingency ships, and are ships I could possibly come around to, given time. Given a lot of time, sometimes.
- Natsu Dragneel x Lisanna Strauss
- Gray Fullbuster x Erza Scarlet
- Natsu Dragneel x Juvia Lockser
Short, yes, but NaLi is the classic childhood friends relationship, and although I believe that Lisanna has completely moved on, since she basically has told Lucy to stay by his side, I can still understand why people ship it. What I don’t understand, however, is the disgusting arguments and hate that flies between Nalu and Nali shippers constantly. It’s disgusting. And people who change Lisanna into a vengeful bitch for fanfiction purposes make me sick, because she’s a fucking angel.
Grayza? I don’t know what you call it, because I don’t care much for it, but I do see the possibilities. In fact, if you noticed, it’s the only other pairing I’ve listed for Gray (though I considered Cana, but they’re forever bros). They’ve been through a lot together, and when Team Natsu splits it seems like these two end up together and Natsu and Lucy end up together, so…yeah.
Navia fans, I don’t know what you’ve done to me, but I’ve started to see the possibilities. So much so that it might have been in my secondary ships, had I not preferred Juvia with someone that I know loves her (protecting my water goddess, you know). Just something about fire and water makes me grin, although I still think they’re much better off as friends.
And there’s one more thing that I wanted to mention in this ‘shipping’ post: BROTPs. I can’t say I just have one brotp, but I do have a favorite, and then there are several others I adore. So, here goes!
SPECIAL FEATURE: BROTPs!
A lot of the Fairy Tail members have sibling-like relationships with each other, so here I’ll mention several brotps and brot3s that I like and agree with. Also…brot4s? is that a thing?
- Gajeel Redfox and Juvia Lockser
- Gray Fullbuster and Natsu Dragneel and Erza Scarlet and Lucy Heartfilia
- Gajeel Redfox and Juvia Lockser and Pantherlily
- Gray Fullbuster and Lucy Heartfilia
- Lucy Heartfilia and Levy McGarden
- Cana Alberona and Juvia Lockser
- Gajeel Redfox and Natsu Dragneel and Wendy Marvell
- Gray Fullbuster and Loke/Leo
- Laxus Dreyar and Jellal Fernandes
- Gray Fullbuster and Cana Alberona
- Lucy Heartfilia and Cana Alberona
- Thunder God Tribe
- Gildarts Clive and Laxus Dreyar
- Gray Fullbuster and Lyon Vastia
- Team Shadow Gear
So…my actually brotp is Gajeel and Juvia. They’re the best, okay? I have this headcanon that Gajeel constantly teases Juvia about her crush, and she constantly teases him about Levy, and then he shuts up, embarrassed. I also feel like it was the bright and cheerful and bubbly Juvia that drew him out of his (iron) shell.
Team Natsu; ‘nuff said. Of course, Happy counts as well, but for the sake of this post I’m sticking with mostly human characters.
And I’m just going to skip to the fact that I have so many brotps that include Gray. He’s just a cold, sarcastic, friendly guy. I just love his interactions with almost anyone, especially the minor cast.
I just can’t explain it, okay? Haha.
Anyway, this is it.
Here’s where I end this post!
Hope you guys enjoyed my confession, but fear not: I’ll probably always ship more pairings than I actually dare to admit, so if you’re ever curious, just ask.
