on Mavis’ discovery in ch 478

this is probably influenced by my recent reading of Lady Midnight and the parabatai bond, but I think the thing Mavis found out to defeat Zeref is actually Team Natsu’s overall fighting strength when they fight together.

Twice we had Mavis concoct strategies for Fairy Tail, and none of those instances did we have Natsu and Lucy in a team together. Natsu was out to rescue Lucy from the dungeons in GMG while in Alvarez arc, Natsu teamed up with his fellow Dragonslayers while Lucy was with Cana and stayed in the guild after Brandish’s allergies acted up. 

In chapter 478, Mavis personally witnessed Natsu and Lucy fight together. She saw how they draw out the best from each other, how great their teamwork is. And as a tactician, she recognized that and determined that it’s a way to defeat Zeref. Maybe she saw a potential powerful unison raid between Natsu and Lucy after seeing the simultaneous Regulus Kick and Fire Dragon’s Claw.
