[MS] Mystery of Fairy Tail: Why is Zeref x Mavis popular? : fairytail
This is an AU one since both Zeref and Mavis died a few chapters ago. If anybody in Fairy Tail were to be told a few years ago that they would. On Archive of Our Own (AO3), users can make profiles, create works and other background, country of origin, sexual identity and/or personal relationships. All the members are shocked when they hear that mavis and Zeref are getting now I'm pregnant ya and its a girl me and Zeref have agreed to call her zervis.
Natsu surprisingly or unsurprisingly was welcoming to Zeref. After finishing his usual brawl with Gray he moved and sat across from Zeref yelling out a "Hey Brother!
The Guild had just come to grips with the fact that the fire mage is in fact E. D, now they were having THIS massive bomb dropped on them. Natsu turned to them smiling toothily. It's not like he had anywhere else to go anyway. Looking at Mavis sleeping on the bar, near Makarov and his grandson. He made up his mind. Mavis was happy there but he knew he'd never really be accepted by these wizards, he tried to kill them after all. Quietly getting up off the bench he was sitting on he moved to exit the Guild.
He figured he'd hide his identity, roam around the world. Not many people know what he looks like anyway, but he'd have to be careful now that he had no magic to defend himself. Turning to look at Natsu he whispered quietly, "Goodbye brother.
Softly pushing open the Guild doors, he walked out. Only to crash into another person five steps away from the Guild Hall. Stepping back to apologize he came face to face with Lucy Heartfilia. He stood in momentary shock. The resemblance to Anna and Layla is uncanny he thinks, he had known she looked like the women who had made the mission successful.
But he didn't realize just how much so. The hair color and eye color is one thing, but she also held the same facial shape, same piercing eye shape, and the same radiance that all Heartfilias seem to hold. The mage who was previously clutching her hurt nose, tilts her head up to look at him.
He is surprised when the girl realizes that it's him, she doesn't flinch or otherwise look repulsed. I woke up a little bit ago and had went back to my apartment for a shower and a change of clothes. In fact he thinks that the other Fairy Tail members could benefit from a shower and a change.
Most of them had not bothered to change from their battle-worn clothes, too caught up in the celebration. Not that he'll be there to see it. I should have looked around extensively before carelessly deciding to walk out of the hall. When the mage does not move to let him pass, he makes a move to walk around her.
She stops him by talking again. He should've known that the Good Samaritan members of Fairy Tail wouldn't let him leave like that.
God knows whatever evil acts he would perpetrate if they let him go. His blank expression must've given away his thoughts because her eyes soften. You're mortal now, not to mention you don't have any magic to defend yourself with. He knows he shouldn't be shocked, the Heartfilia women have always been kind and caring beyond reason.
But he still couldn't help but feel touched that she would be concerned over such a vile and repugnant thing such as himself.
Not to mention that he indirectly killed her mother.
Sure he didn't force Layla into it or persuade her to use her own life-force in placement of the last key, but that doesn't mean he didn't play a role. If his plan with the eclipse gate hadn't been created or needed to be passed on through the Heartfilia line, Layla wouldn't have felt the need to use her life-force in order to save her daughter. He knows it's a guilt that Igneel, Metalicana, Grandeeney, Skyiadrum, and Weisslogia all felt as well.
He lightly shakes his head and regains his composure. I'm already shocked and extremely grateful at the amount of kindness and mercy your Guild has shown me.

To expect any more would be ludicrous and greedy. He attempts to move around the girl, but she stops him again. You should be here with Natsu and Mavis, not with a world of people that hate you.
Smartness being another quality that has always been a Heartfilia trait. Quite the contrary, the world needs to move forward, away from the dark menace of Zeref.
He gestures to the Guild hall before she can protest. Not only of the blood I have spilled yesterday, but also of the pain on I inflicted on many of them.
I created many demons such as Lullaby and Deliora, ones that have directly hurt your friends. I created the demons of the guild Tartarus that attacked and caused you so much pain. My worshippers were the ones that built and created the Tower of Heaven, they turned your Master Precht to the dark side, who in turn summoned Acnologia, who ended up putting you all into a seven year sleep.
I have negatively affected all those around me with my near presence, and the more I loved life, the more I would destroy it. You and your all your friends have every right to completely obliterate me. In fact I was and still am expecting it.
There standing behind him was the entirety of Fairy Tail. Natsu was at the front of the Guild smiling toothily. You may not ever attain full forgiveness from everyone, but I think it's worth trying. Gray looking the most hesitant. Zeref shook his head. I don't deserve this treatment. I can't live this life alone you know. Lucy nodded along with her.
Natsu ran up to them. Zeref just stood still willing himself to not cry in front of the more than generous mages. Gray and some of the others still gave him glares sometimes, but for the most part welcomed him if sat next to or talked to them. He was like a little ball of sunshine and he certainly helped the members warm up to Zeref more.
Like his name, he was like a warm fire, bringing joy to others. He was like a little Mavis, running around trying to help everyone and everything.
Zeref has lost count of the number of wounded animals the child has brought up to him, begging his father to save the creatures. The curse of contradiction is active whenever Zeref cares about the life of and causes his dark magic to spiral out of control and eliminate everything around him and leaves Zeref immortal and unaging. Following this incident, Zeref discovered the only way to control this affect is for him to not care about the lives of others and become the ruthless Zeref spoken of in legend.
He later wandered around unintentionally taking more innocent lives slowly beginning to hate himself for his actions as well as hating himself for enjoying the fact that he now had as much free time on his hands to continue his research.
Zeref soon came to the conclusion that he wanted to die which led to him studying forbidden magic which gave rise to demons that would later go on to be called the Demons of Zeref's books. Zeref called them the Etherious as they were created from the Etherano that makes up magic itself the demons were created for the sole purpose of killing Zeref as the latter put an instinct for them to want to return to him which turned out to be the desire to kill their creator.
But believing these demons were not up to the task, he turned back to reviving his dead brother whose body he kept preserved. Zeref was successful in reviving his brother, bring him back as an Etherious demon his most strongest on thus fulfilling his goal of bringing back his brother and creating something that could kill him E.
Zeref took care of Natsu but the latter proved to be too rambunctious to handle as he didn't want to learn how to read or write so one day while out gathering herbs he encountered Igneel who unlike many other dragons had no problems talking with humans. Igneel and Zeref soon became friends with Igneel offering to raise Zeref's younger brother and teach him in the art of Dragon Slayer Magic.
Zeref gave Igneel his permission to raise Natsu after Igneel told him of a plan to raise and train Dragon Slayers to one day defeat Acnologia in the future.
To Zeref, Acnologia didn't matter as to him, this plan was a perfect way for him to make Natsu stronger and one day the latter would be able to kill him. Zeref helped the dragons by enlisting the help of Celestial Spirit Wizard named Anna and had her utilize his invention the Eclipse Gate which allowed the Dragons and their children to leap forward to the future.
For four hundred years, Zeref awaited his brother's arrival but slowly became traumatized at the repeating conflicts that passed and soon opt to seclude himself. The only time he was truly happy was when he taught Mavis and her friends on how to use magic. Sometime later, Zeref created what would soon form itself into the Alvarez Empire. Eventually, he found himself on the secluded Tenrou Island, hoping to stay completely cut off from humanity. As they finally finished the guild building, all four took a photo with the building in background as a sign that Fairy Tail was born.
She later entrusted the guild to Precht to serve as its second master. In gratitude, members of Fairy Tail made her a grave on the holy island of the guild - Tenrou Island. Mavis was given with an epithet as the Fairy Tactician, since she led her team in many victories thanks to her exceptional skills in making strategies during battles. Mavis refuses to believes this and runs away from his statement. While Zeref wishes to obtain Mavis's Fairy Heart, the latter views him as a danger to the world that must be disposed of.
Despite this, the two actually still hold deep feelings for one another. This is shown when Zeref feels sadness while watching Irene attempt to strip Mavis of Fairy Heart, a process which brings Mavis great pain.
