So.

I would like to start off by saying a massive THANK YOU. In fact, thank you doesn’t even begin to convey how utterly grateful I am to everyone who has, at some point, clicked that follow button. The fact that over 11,000 people have taken the time to follow my wee blog blows my mind.

Now I’m going to list some of my favourite blogs and write a little about my friends at the bottom!

Ben Affleck is having a bad week - first his movie ‘Live By Night’ that he directed and starred in gets trashed by critics, now two DC movies he’s starred in are short-listed for 12 Razzie awards between them including a ‘Worst Actor’ nom for him. Hopefully WB will release some new ‘Justice League’ footage soon to divert everyone’s attention to brighter things.

I'm so so so sad. im trying real hard to be strong for everybody around me but im collapsing under the weight of it all. im real sad and so alone. im sorry this is negative! youre a happy suggestion blog. i want to be happy

Don’t apologize! No one is happy all the time. I’m so sorry you’ve been feeling that way - and I want to say that you are not alone, never alone, okay? And be strong for yourself first; you have no obligation to the people around you. Let them be strong for you, too! Let them help if they can. 

I don’t know if it helps for me to say this, but I have been where you are and I know it feels endless but I promise it gets better. It might take a long time, but it gets better. And if it’s a long term thing, I do have one suggestion for you: I journal on a near-daily basis, just writing down what I did that day and how it made me feel, stuff like that. Kind of like a diary. And one day I was looking back on what I’d written and I realized that it was really, really negative - partly because I was going through some tough things, and partly because those sad, angry, helpless feelings were all I could focus on. So I started to try to point out to myself the things that made me happy during the day - even silly little things, like having a cup of coffee in the morning. It honestly helped. Like I said I don’t know if writing is something that helps you but it has always worked for me. I hope you feel better soon - I promise it does get better and brighter. Things won’t always be great but they will be better. x

“Are you gonna be okay?” he asked.
She stood up and looked at the world before her. It suddenly felt a little bit brighter after setting things right.
“Yeah. Soon I will say I’m fine and it will not be a lie,” she smiled.
It’s true, she thought, lying in bed drinking vodka drowning in misery doesn’t help your problems to go away. Facing it and doing something about it does.

I honestly feel for Lucy.

Let me just collect my thoughts and put them together in one post.

It was really difficult to read this chapter when I got to the end. To be honest, I didn’t feel that sad when Igneel died, one reason being that I had never expected Igneel to stay alive forever, but it’s totally different with Lucy. I’m emotionally invested in her, and I felt sad and hurt when I saw her crying at the end of the chapter. With Igneel, while we’ve been told about how he’s like and what he means to Natsu, we never really got to see him and know him that way. With Lucy however, it’s a totally different story.

We’ve seen how Lucy met Natsu (and Happy), and was brought to the guild by him. We’ve seen how their relationship has changed - they started off not getting along that well, but later developed a friendship and are close to each other now. It can be said that Happy aside, Natsu’s the closest to Lucy, and to Lucy, Natsu. We see how much time they’ve spent together, not just on missions, but in their private time as well, to the extent where other people (not just the Fairy Tail members) would as one of them for the other’s whereabouts. Their bond is special. We’ve seen how much Lucy means to Natsu, especially through his reaction when Future Lucy died. We can tell that Natsu is important to Lucy as well, even though she hasn’t shown her care in the same way as Natsu has shown towards her.

Being able to follow Lucy through the hundreds of chapters thus far has made me attached to her, and that’s why Natsu leaving Lucy hurts more than Igneel dying.

The events of the current chapter begin a week after the happenings in chapter 415. When we first see Lucy, it’s with Wendy, and Lucy looks perfectly fine and happy. I’m guessing that she had comforted Natsu in the week that passed, and that Natsu appeared to have more or less recovered from his loss, which is why Lucy seems to be her happy self when we see her with Wendy. I doubt she’d look so cheerful if Natsu still appears to be down, since she’d be worried about him. Her assumption that Natsu and Happy were at her place might suggest that they had been barging into her place as well.

Lucy has lost the closest people to her - both her parents, and more recently Aquarius. Her mother died when she was young, and her father passed away while she was stuck on Tenrou Island for 7 years. She never got to say goodbye to him or make up with him before he passed. I’m sure she had never expected her father to pass away too, and it must have taken her by surprise. She was forced to break Aquarius’ key in order to save her friends. While Aquarius never appeared to like Lucy all that much, she’s the Spirit that Lucy’s been with for the longest, and someone that means a lot to Lucy as well. It must have been an extremely painful choice to make between not losing Aquarius and saving her friends, and till now, Lucy still bears the pain of losing Aquarius alone. (We’ve haven’t had any indication that anyone else knows about what happened with Aquarius.) We’re reminded of that when we’re shown Aquarius’ broken key.

And this just makes Natsu’s departure even harder.

Here Lucy was, coming home feeling happy and expecting Natsu and Happy to be there, and the next thing she knows, she’s reading a letter from them saying that they’ll be away in about a year. It’s bad enough that they’re leaving for so long, and it hurts even more because it took her by surprise. She wasn’t expecting it. It probably had never even occurred to her that something like that might happen.

Natsu was the one that brought Lucy to Fairy Tail, her new home. She had lost her family, but he’s her family now, even if they’re not related by blood. And now she’s faced with losing another person that’s close to her… and it still hurts even if he isn’t leaving forever. The one constant she had in her life, the one who was with her the most, and her source of support had just left like that.

It’s lonely… and it’s painful.

I honestly wish that Natsu and Happy hadn’t left without Lucy. Even though I’m sure Lucy understands the strong bond between the both of them, it must really hurt, knowing that Happy went along with Natsu but she was left behind. I can’t help but wonder if she feels as though she isn’t as important as Happy or something.

I wish Natsu had asked Lucy to go along. I’m not sure what his reasons are, but couldn’t there have been a way for Lucy to join them too? Was it something that’s really out of the question? We see the other characters finding closure and beginning to move on. We see that they have other people with them for support. And then we see Lucy all alone, her source of support gone. I wish Lucy wasn’t left behind like that.

I’m glad however, that Lucy ran after Natsu. That she admitted that she’d be lonely without him. I wish she’d catch up to him, but judging from the title of the next chapter, it seems like a reunion between the two of them won’t be happening so soon. On the brighter side of things however, being apart from Natsu might make Lucy realize her feelings towards him.

It’d be interesting to see where this leads us to. What’s going to happen when they meet again? Would Lucy be seeing END instead of the Natsu that we know? Or would she see END being awakened with her own eyes? Lucy being separated from Natsu might open up to possibility of something happening to her as well… I still think there’s more to her than we know of, and that she’ll have a big part to play as we head towards the end of the manga as well. Either way, I foresee lots of angst once END is awakened.

Like it or not, change is happening, and Fairy Tail is no longer the Fairy Tail that we used to know.

Marakov has announced that Fairy Tail will disband. The members of Fairy Tail are like a family, and the guild is their home. With the disbandment of the guild, it feels like all the members have lost a place to return to (and a place to belong to)… how are they going to take the news? What’s going to happen to everyone?

Jellal and Erza… I wish Jellal would forgive himself and give himself a chance with Erza. Erza’s more than willing to walk with him on the same path - he just needs to give himself a chance to do that with her.

And Gray… he’s vowed to take down END, but can he bring himself to do so after he finds out that END is in fact Natsu? He’s going to be torn between carrying out his father’s will and hurting his friend. And who knows how many other members are going to get implicated in this.

I think this chapter wrapped up the arc pretty well, even though it made me really sad. It’d be interesting to see where Mashima-sensei takes the story from here on. The next few arcs could be epic if they’re handled well.
