Scars

She doesn’t try to hide them.

Perhaps it’s her pride, or perhaps it’s simple vanity. Whatever the reason, Lucy Heartfilia’s revealing outfits have become a staple that she can pull off with the barest of ease. And while it would be easy to claim the wizard’s attire leaves too little—if anything—to the imagination, the scars that cover her body contradict such a statement.

          She’s absolutely covered in them. Scars of varying size, shape, and width. Some are jagged, some are as straight as a blade. Some stand out roughly from her skin, some have been there so long they blend in with the rest of her. It is commonly assumed that those who wield celestial keys in battle never taste true combat—but Lucy’s scraped and scored skin would beg to differ.

          Each mark holds a story—inflicted upon the once-heiress deliberately and without mercy.

ARE WE NOT GONNA TALK ABOUT THIS??

Can we just look at this expression from Brandish regarding her opinion towards Layla? Can we??

This is so interesting. Brandish doesn’t look happy, that’s for sure. What did Layla do that pissed Brandish off so badly?

Did she confront her and deal some serious damage? We don’t really know how powerful Lucy’s mom was after all. Did Layla confront Zeref back then and was that currently angering Brandish so much she wanted revenge?? Or is there a real threat Lucy’s magic can do to either Zeref or his plans?

I am so excited to finally find out how Layla plays out in this that I think I’m gonna have a heart attack btw natsu where the hell u at your wife needs you

i mean just LOOK?!??!? AT HOW SNUGLY SHE’S HOLDING ON TO HIM?!?!?! JUST LOOK AT THAT ARM AROUND HIS WAIST

LORD HAVE FUCKING MERCY THE AMOUNT OF SKINSHIP IN THIS CHAPTER

And then you get this??!?!?! panel?!?!?!!?!

Like?!?!? Look at that solemn face, look at that intensity in those eyes. He is not fucking around. This is a Promise with a capital P, to a stellar spirit mage no less who values promises above all other things and Natsu knows this. He knows this because he knows Lucy top to bottom and this is a promise that he’s going to bring Fairy Tail back and piece together her broken smile and make up for the year of depression she had to go through, because he’s starting to realise that his actions had unforseeable repercussions and even though I doubt he would do it any other way if he had a chance to do over, he’s starting to realise that what he did hurt Lucy more than he anticipated and he’s going to do something about it because even though he may not have meant to cause her pain, it’s evident that she was in pain. He didn’t mean to make her sad, but it happened anyway and hell if he’s not going to take responsibility for it. He’s gonna fix it and reset everything back to the way it was before. For Lucy’s sake.
