    have trouble understanding that first sentence, i do belive its a bit fragmentet.
    Yeah... I'm trying to remember what I was trying to say but I can't recall. My bad

    But anyway, Grey didnt outsmart Rufus, he defeated him by cranking his creation speed up to a point where Rufus could not keep up with him, thats just overpowering your oppponent, and it annoy me so greatly because i have seen Hiro do so much better, like in Grey's fight against Urtear, where his way of overcomming what was meant to be a counter towards creation magic were both insightfull and badass.
    I don't know, it feels pretty similar to me. Yeah, creating this fast is kind of a feat of power but not as much as just making some rreally powerful magic to throw at him. On the same level, using your frozn blood is also a case of more power (and smart tricks). (I still hate how Ultear could make trees grow)


    @Hopeless. I think Mirajana mentioned finding Edolas-Lisanna's dead body and burying her in place of Lisanna.

    Fairy Tail is not dark. It's upbeat, hopeful and happy. If it has to become darker and edgier to be deep, I hope it stays shallow forever.

    Off the record, you linked a thing with Squirrel Girl in it. I have to love you forever now.

    Anyway, yha, I agree. Fairy Tail is a totally not dark upbeat, hopeful series.

    Where in the middle of saying "we believe in the power of friendship" the main villian nearly destroyed the entire main cast, and they only survived due to Deus ex Machina.

    I'm just saying, there's a good chance Acologia might be the big blackness that turns the series dark, atleast for awhile, since it's clear that friendship power means nothing to him.

    I'd call that a very minor subversion, since said deus ex machina only happened because of the power of friendship.

    I think it's just powerful enough that they emotions/friendship what-have-you are not enough. They'll need outside help (I'm guessing the dragons, as either partners or power-ups). I don't expect it to turn dark. At most some people dying for added drama. (This is a cue for lord_khaine's weekly "drama is dead in FT" rant)

    No, its actualy as shallow as its opposite end of the spektrum, this might come as a surprise to you, but if you move to the ekstreme end of either side, then you cant avoid the final result being kinda flat.

    In other words, you need the dark to make the light shine.

    Se above for why this is both false, and a bad idea.

    I see your point, but isn't most of what Lucy does just "asking her celestial spirit friends for a helping hand"? I mean, we know that you can use some types of magic without having internal magic, and celestial spirit magic just seems like a good candidate to me since it is largely external.
    I dont think think i can remember a singel style of magic that doesnt require some sort of internal magic, what are you thinking about?
    And as for Lucy, while you could say that she mostly just ask the spirits for a helping hand, then she is still covering both their traveling expenses and their stay in hard magical currency, something that often ends up leaving her broke.
    So while it might be that Lucy is just really weak, then it does look a lot like celestrial spirit magic is one of the most draining magical diciplines we have seen so far.

    That's what the last part of my paragraph meant, except more from an Doylist perspective.
    Ahh, you were a bit hard to understand there

On the same level, using your frozn blood is also a case of more power (and smart tricks). (I still hate how Ultear could make trees grow)
    To me its really just a different demonstration of power, speed kills after all.
    And the way i saw it, Rufus knew what he should do, he just wasnt fast enough to do it. If it had been the other way around Grey would have outsmartet him.
    Regarding the use of frozen blood however, then i do belive its more a case of determination (to cut himself that badly isnt easy in any way), and insight (realising his blood wouldnt be affected by the arc of time).

    I think it's just powerful enough that they emotions/friendship what-have-you are not enough. They'll need outside help (I'm guessing the dragons, as either partners or power-ups).

    You see, I disagree completely that both completely positive and completely negative stories can't be deep. It simply has no bearing on the substance of a story. It's simply a choice.

    Well fair enough, i have personaly newer seen it done, and the best works of fiction i have read allways made sure to at least contain trace elements of the opposite spectrum.
    I guess if i acutaly find a story to prove me wrong then ill change my stance on the point from "cant avoid" to "can allmost newer avoid".
    And yes, im from Scandinavia, so my syntax sometimes get a bit unusual.

    Of course not, in Weekend at Bernie's there was 2 clueless guys working hard to make everyone else belive Bernie was still alive

    I just hasnt identified the other guy yet.

    There is plenty of good work in this area, actually. Wanted, by Mark Millar has metacomentary on why it should suck but it's still very entertaining.
    Stormwatch is pretty much this played straight - everyone is a bastard, everyone hates everyone and few of the characters have any redeeming traits at all. Sweeney Todd is also filled with utterly bad people. Hard Candy is about a psychopath vs a child molester. Also, that's basically the point of Warhammer 40K, or so I hear. One example I specially enjoyed was War of the Spider Queen.
    In most slice of life stories, you won't find dark overtones. Turma da Mônica, Menino Maluquinho, Shin-chan, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Amélie Poulan, are all example of stories completely on the lighter side of the spectrum.

    It occurs to me that Celestial Magic is really expensive (magic wise) because it's a very safe way to fight. After all you don't have to put yourself at risk and can just hide while your minions fight. Lucy really is the exception to that rule in that she sticks around and fights instead of just letting the Celestial Minions fight for her.

    I don't agree completely with this. I do agree that if someone says that a story is more mature because it is grimdark you need to prepare for a very immature story.

    Porlyusica is a more powerful healer than Wendy, Mystogan went toe to toe with Laxus, and Erza Knightwalker was also almost as strong as Erza Scarlet. All three of them were from Edolas and so had no internal magic. As for the fact that Lucy seems to consume a lot of magical power, you could probably use Lacryma for that.

    New chapter! This one begins with Natsu looking at the designs of the Zero Division from Bleach laughing at the new character's designs. Then some random crap happens that seperates the party into their individual fights.

    I'm a little freaked out by the paper mage, and how she says all her paper is god. Feels like a pun of some sort that we're just not getting (maybe since Origami is Paper Art, she's making a pun on how gami can also be read as Kami, which is god or spirit?)

    Also, the plant lady. She's...a plant lady.

    I personally believe the main executor's weapons were forged from the ashes of two protagonists from an 80's comedy who died perpetually stuck in the credits montage.

    Axe 1: "Oh man, we got this!"

    Axe 2: "We so totally got this!"

    Axe 1: "This is gonna be sweet!"

    Axe 2: "So sweet, bro!"

    *Axes high-five, music starts playing.*

    "You're the best. Around. No one's ever gonna take us down."

    Well, we got some interesting battles set up, I guess. Of course FT will win, dying is even less a possibility than losing in a tournament.
    And I'll agree on the god thing--- probably some joke we're missing out on.

All three of them were from Edolas and so had no internal magic. As for the fact that Lucy seems to consume a lot of magical power, you could probably use Lacryma for that.
    But none of those people are able to use a style of magic, Porlyusica is a great doctor and herbalist, Mystogan has a backpack full of magical staves, and Knightwalker had her magical spear, but all the magic is in the items, without them they are significantly weaker.

    A mage like Natsu or Grey on the other hand, would continue on fighting with full power even if you striped them naked.

    As for the new chapter, annoyingly enough even less drama than in the previously.
    -Surprise, Lucy is yet again seperated from her keys, i continue feeling justified in every harsh word i have said about celestrial spirit magic so far
    -Also, apperently the magical champions of the entire Kingdom has their hands full with what is not even the Ace team of FT, clearly the king is only allowed to rule because the guild masters allow him to
    -At least it looks like Mirajane is in the mood for some asskicking at last, so the chapter isnt completely wasted.

    I honestly dont see the logic here?

    We have several manga's worth of evidence for how serious a drain on your magical energy it is to use celestrial spirit magic, if anything i would considder it the least likely style to be used by someone without a magical reserve.

    Isn't Loke able to appear without having to be summoned?
    Yes he is, but that just means its the celestrial spirit Loki who desides to drop by and see how its going, that has nothing to do with celestrial spirit magic, and is even more unreliable than it normaly it (but only a little, unfortunately )

    Its just that these guys seem remarkably powerful to not have some kind of reputation outside of the head knight.
    It just shows how good they actualy are at their job, though i dont considder them powerfull.

    If you can go 1 on 1 with someone like Erza, Laxus or Gildartz, then you can call yourself powerfull, else you are not going to get past decent in my book.

    I just find it funny how the top of the kingdomes magical strenght is apperenly only equal to a random group of FT mages, chosen mostly for their ability to break in and out of secure buildings.

    Clearly the only reason the King is still in charge, is that the guild masters allready have their hands full just keeping their members in line

    Except even the supposedly second strongest guild in Fiore gets the same treatment. Fairy Tail (and Grimoire Heart) seems to be an outlier.

    Well, it would explain things, but its the magical council who are doing the hard thing, and they should suposedly be able to rely on people like Jura and his fellow 8 saints if they actualy became forced to give FT the smackdown.
    Not even Ft would (should) be able to stand against the combined might of the other guilds.

    Sorry, the part about the king staying in power. I'm sure his knights are plenty capable of dealing with non-Fairy Tail guilds.

    Sorry, the part about the king staying in power. I'm sure his knights are plenty capable of dealing with non-Fairy Tail guilds.
    Ahh, well i would say that atm it seems like the top 4-5 guilds alone would be enough to at least put preassure on the Kingdoms military (cant imagine any number of knights would be able to do anything against Jura or Rufus to start with).

    And when there is such an imbalance of power, then i would say the King is only in position because the guild masters let him stay there.

    Though i am also wondering about how Bluenote fits into all of this, it was said he used to be in the military, and he was a hades-class wizard, so why dont they have more people on his level of power, was he just a fluke?

    Sheer strength is not the only thing that matters in the world and the guild masters certainly know that. Sure, they could fight everyone and kill the king. Will they be able to trade with other countries after such a hostile takeover? Won't other guilds try to do the same to them, now that they are weakened by the fight? Won't other countries take advantage of the situation to attack? Will the guilds know how to run the country?

    It's like saying the president's bodyguard can't protect him because he is not bulletproof, IMHO.

    EDIT: Also, new chapter!

    Is it just me, or does Mira's devil form look ugly?

    Doesnt look like there is much contact with the outside world, and i dont think the trade would be that important, or disrupted much for that matter.
    And we have also seen DS's take on entire guilds of their own, so i dont think anyone below the top 10 guilds will be able to get a say in the matter.

    I think this analogi is wrong, its more like that 4 of the Barons in the kingdom each has greater military power than the king himself, and he doesnt seem to realise it

    OH COME ON!!

    Just let the pointless mook die a heroic death! Seriously!

    Everything else was fine but typical.

    Yeah, for a moment it really got close to an epic scene, but it the way he got saved ruined the mood.

    Also, it did not improve things that Natsu apperently is going to stomp the head of the kingdoms magical forces.

    Though it does look more and more like the next arc is going to take place in the past.

    I do wish there would be more tension, but honestly the way he was saved didn't bother me since it fit with what we knew of Lucy's abilities. A lot better than it could have been.

    Recently I started reading One Piece, I finally got sort of into it after avoiding it for so long and I'm on chapter 206, Luffy is fighting Crocodile. I bring this up because the one thing One Piece seems to do quite well is create tension. It always seems like the straw hats are about to lose, and it is always believable when they win. Fairy Tail completely fails at creating tension of any sort, although it wasn't always like that.
