** To be honest, I always assumed guilds had a membership fee or something similiar. Maybe getting a cut of the rewards offered in the requests. After all, a mage can only get official work while being employed by a guild. So, since they enable you to find work and act as a work broker, why shouldn't they charge a fee for the jobs they get you. That's pretty much how guilds worked back then and unions do these days.

[[WMG: How did the Neo Oración Seis escape?]]
The "Key to the Starry Heavens" arc revolves around the Neo Oración Seis and their attempts to claim the Infinity Clock. We know that prior to this, they'd been locked up in the Magic Council's prison, and it was only thanks to Cardinal Lapointe's efforts that they escaped. However, we later learn that Lapointe was merely a magical clone of Brain[=/=]Zero created by Midnight, which raises all kinds of questions. Presumably, Midnight created Lapointe sometime before the timeskip, since he'd been able to work his way to such a high position in the Zentopia hierarchy, but that would imply that Midnight had been planning things for at least seven years, and that he was doing so right under Brain's nose. Furthermore, the entire point of using the Infinity Clock is to succeed where Zero failed, which would suggest that he already knew that Nirvana would fail somehow. That would seem to indicate that he didn't make Lapointe before the Nirvana incident, but the other possibilities make even less sense. Right at the end of the Nirvana arc, all of the Oración Seis members were captured by the Magic Council and thrown into an anti-magic prison, so Midnight couldn't have cast the spell to create Lapointe to free them in the first place. Creating Lapointe during the Nirvana incident is also implausible, for most of the same reasons as creating him beforehand, with the added catch that he probably wouldn't have had time to do so with everything else going on. In other words, no matter what way you slice it, it's just a big timeline snarl.

** Exactly this. The reason Mavis died when Zeref and her consummated their relationship, is because the purpose of the curse is to punish, denying any happiness. Even though Mavis had the exact same curse, since she purposely allowed Zeref to love her more than vice versa, the curse decided to lower her immortality, to prevent Zeref attaining happiness, fulfilling the clause of the Curse. Also, the reason they are immortal in the first place, is because the curse is the will of the god, meaning dying would be akin to going against the will of the god, which is nigh absolute. The god in this case wills that the person be punished, so nothing can go against this.

**** "He could eat Etherion despite the majority of it wasn't fire." The reason for this, is that Natsu is actually a human-Etherious hybrid, thanks to Zeref resurrecting him when he died at the age of 2. Since he is a composite being of flesh and ethernano, it makes sense that he is able to eat it from the giant lacrima, since it's not that different from a part of his own essence that isn't the flesh part.

* It was mentioned several times (including Gray's flashback during the Garuna Island arc) that mages in the west are so powerful that even Ur doesn't compare to them. Alvarez may not have been mentioned by name, but the idea that there's a continent to the west with absurdly strong mages has been around for a while.


Added DiffLines:

* Before he was KilledMidSentence, he mentioned that he joined Alvarez to find and kill Acnologia, presumably to stroke his own ego or prove that he's the greatest Dragon Slayer. Considering the strength of Zeref and the Spriggan Twelve, it's likely that he thought they were his best chance at pulling that off.


Added DiffLines:

* In chapter 512, Happy mentions that Natsu will die if Zeref does, and he mentions in 527 that the book of E.N.D. is Natsu's book.

*** It could be due to the fact that she wouldn't have gotten very far anyway? First off, Kyouka was only torturing her for two reasons. One, for answers and two, for fun. Negating the second, Erza actually did as Kyouka did. The difference? Kyouka had no way of knowing Erza was telling the truth and thought she was holding her tongue, but when Erza was asking the questions, Kyouka '''''willingly gave up the truth'''''. Erza had ''no reason'' to torture her because she was getting the answers she sought. Second thing, the Nine Demon Gates ''don't use magic''. Just like in canon, Kyouka could have broken out of those cuffs whenever she pleased and, considering her pain tolerance seems to be pretty high, Erza torturing her wouldn't have made much difference. Kyouka could have simply allowed Erza to think she was getting the upper hand and tiring herself out before letting herself free and capturing Erza all over again. Erza not torturing Kyouka is basically Mashima saying, "I don't feel like drawing this out and wasting time, so let's do plot forwarding stuff instead."

** But Lucy only took her golden keys. Doesn't Angel still have that silver key that summons a drone spirit, and therefore a contract with a spirit?

[[WMG: What is Zera exactly?]]
In Chapter 11 of Fairy Tail Zero, she's revealed to be DeadAllAlong and she's an illusion only Mavis can see. But then Yuri finally sees and hears her, and then Precht and Warrod hear her before she disappears. Then in Chapter 13 she's sitting on a tree watching over the founders with Mavis obviously not doing anything to bring her to life. Then in Chapter 491, Zera talks about how Mavis isn't aware of her existence and will disappear when she is, but why? If she had to disappear in Chapter 12 because Mavis' magic was stunted, why did she come back on her own without Mavis? Is she the spirit of the deceased Zera that Mavis resurrected in her illusion or something?

[[WMG: Lucy knowing about [[spoiler:Natsu being END]].]]
I feel like I might have missed something. I can't recall a moment when Lucy is told about the identity of END. Sure there were subtle instances that may have been dead giveaways to her, but it seems as if she already knows about it by the time [[spoiler:she and Gray have the book in their possession]]. So was there a scene that I missed that had this reveal to her? Or was it done offscreen?

* It's possible that it's not about using Karen's magic up, but that Karen wasn't adept enough to open more than one gate at the same time. Even if Loke is using his own magic to stay in the human world, Karen's magic is aware that his gate is still open regardless, and wouldn't open another gate until Loke's gate was closed. I personally saw this not as a move on Loke to strain Karen's magic, but to prevent her from using her summoning abilities so that she couldn't get a job and therefore would be a strain on her expenses - Karen still needs to eat and afford rent and what not after all, and she can't afford to do any of that if she can't use her summoning magic to make any income.
