Ho Yay: Fairy Tail
Juvia isn't the only one who sees it.

Fairy Tail is just bursting with these moments.
  • Natsu x Gray: This is actually better in context. Natsu is seriously freaked out by the Bizarro Universe and turns to Gray for what he hopes is the multiversal constant.
    Natsu: "Take off your clothes, Gray."
  • Natsu x Macao: Right after Macao returns from Baleful Polymorph/Demonic Possession by this ice monster, Natsu and Macao have a moment. This is highlighted when Lucy grins a little. Happy points out that this is a little creepy.
  • Lucy: She probably takes the motherload of lesbian Ho Yay in Fairy Tail, courtesy of fan flanderization. Between openly crushing on her female teammate Erza, spending her free time looking at pinups of a bikini-clad Mirajane, having a knock-down drag-out Cat Fight with Juvia (complete with plenty of torn clothing), and summoning up an attractive female spirit servant in a maid's outfit, who also wears chains and refers to her as 'dominatrix', she is about three series worth of Les Yay compressed into one character.:
    • Lucy x Mirajane: Hoo boy. Mira was a big reason for Lucy wanting to join Fairy Tail in the first place. And that was only the beginning...
    • And if there was any doubt that this wasn't on purpose...
    • In the omake where all of the cast are high school students, Lucy talks about how much she adores her cute and nice classmate Mirajane. As if that wasn't Les Yay enough, Elfman soon tells her: "If any guy wants to date my sister, he has to be stronger than me!". Lucy's reply is: "Well, I'm not actually a guy, so..." Yeah, Lucy is much more busy about denying the accusation that she is a guy than the accusation that she has a crush on Mira. Make of that what you want.
    • In the Fairy Hills OVA, when the girls are discussing who likes who, Laki says she thinks Lucy likes Mirajane.
    • Lucy x Erza: Starts at their first mission. And it continues in Episode 31.
      Lucy: "You look amazing even when you're naked!"
    • In Chapter 236, Erza was worried about Lucy seeing her in the seduction armor she recently bought so she decided not to use it.
      • Another translation has her saying "I'm not Lucy." she supposed to wear the armor then?
      • Actually, yes.
    • In Chapter 281, Lucy mentions how Erza crawls into her bed.
    • Lucy x Levy: They were the main source of Les Yay. Especially in the anime where they are very touchy-feely.
      Levy: (about Lucy's novel) "Let me see it, please, please! Of course, I'm not talking about your butt... Thought I wouldn't really mind..."
      • In the "Freaky Friday" Flip episode, Levy volunteers to help get everybody back to normal. Lucy thanks her, and Levy answers, "Anything for my girl."
    • Lucy x Juvia: Tower of Heaven arc. Lucy and Juvia were able to use the powerful spell Unison Raid, which requires the partner's hearts to be in perfect synch, on their first try. Jellal noted that some couples could work together for years and never be able to do it. After the spell, they fall asleep in each others arms.
      • This sums things up between them. As does this.
      • The fifth OVA has them both going down the love slide together, in a rather compromising position. Bear in mind that two other pairs going down together are Gajeel and Levy, Erza and Jellal, and finally Elfman and Evergreen.
    • Lucy x Aquarius: In S&M, Lucy would be the slave.
    • Lucy x Virgo: In S&M, Lucy would be the mistress. And Virgo changes Lucy's clothes for her, once while Lucy was asleep.
      • Corollary to the point above: It's also worth elaborating that said spirit assumes a form and personality that reflects what its current summoner desires. Its last owner had weird tastes so it was an aggressive gorilla like Gonk. For Lucy it's a submissive, masochistic and highly attractive Emotionless Girl.
      • In the anime in episode 7, Lucy wears a very pleased (albeit embarrassed) smile when Virgo decides to call her, "princess" and asks about Virgo when Virgo remarks Lucy's underwear will show (with Virgo going so far as to hold Lucy's skirt down in place.)
    • Lucy x Gemini cloning Lucy: Here.
    • Lucy x Every last girl in Fairy Tail?: Lucy is the one peeping.
    • Lucy x Edolas version of Lucy: ...What? Wasn't it obvious?
    • Lucy x Coco: And now this.
    • Lucy x Cana: And the end result: Lucy is so inured to all the Ho Yay, she freely steps into a one-person bathtub with Cana. It gets more blatant later.
    • Lucy x Flare: A more creepy variant: The first thing Flare thinks about when she has Lucy at her mercy is stripping her naked. This is obviously not Played for Laughs this time.
      • And even afterward, Lucy has Sympathy for the Devil and is concerned about Flare.
      • Even when Raven Tail is disbanded, Flare admits she stalks Lucy and even does a Big Damn Heroes for her.
      • And what's the first thing they say to each other when momentarily turned into kids? "You're really cute, you know."
    • Lucy x Yukino: Yukino confuses that she's been "admiring Lucy" ever since first meeting her.
    • Lucy x Michelle: It's no longer subtle after revealing herself as The Mole, Imitatia.
  • Ultear x Meredy: Chapter 250, how dramatic.
  • Juvia x Meredy: Chapter 263, seen here. Also the end of their original fight, where Juvia calls Meredy beautiful.
  • Rogue x Gajeel: Chapter 273. "My only interest", you said?
  • Sting x Natsu:
    • Sting decides that he doesn't care about anything in the tournament that doesn't involve Natsu.
    • It gets even more blatant in Chapter 338 since he wants to have drinks with him alone. Why are you so cheery, Sting?
    • Chapter 344 gives his likes as Lecter and Natsu.
  • Sting x Rogue: They are rarely seen more than five feet from each other and are so far the only non-Fairy Tail mages to preform a Unison Raid, which requires their bodies and magic to be in perfect sync.
  • Chelia x Wendy: Even though they've had chemistry only for a little while, it's blatantly clear that their little friendship moment is foreshadowing to the fact that Hiro is catering towards the lolicon audience. Especially as of the recent chapter, Chapter 298, where they run off together, and after Natsu destroys the building they're in, Wendy lands suspiciously on top of Chelia.
  • Freed x Laxus: It is a fact that Freed looks at 3D magazines with naked male Blue Pegasus members. Bearing that in mind, Freed has a giant Laxus poster in his room. Anime Flanderization does not help, depicting Freed unable to do anything without wondering what Laxus would do first.
  • Mirajane x Jenny: Chapter 279, Mira looks forward to seeing Jenny naked. After Natsu destroys the building everyone is in; Jenny, who thanks to Mira is naked below the waist, and Mira, who thanks to Jenny is naked above the waist, end up on top of one another.
  • Erza has some lesbian tendencies, often commenting on Lucy's looks and in the anime going as far as having a doki-doki moment over her sexy lingerie.
    • Erza x Coordinator: In The Movie, there is quite a lot in a surprisingly short amount of time. To add insult to injury, not only Erza defeats her by wearing a bridal dress (which she can't dispel with her Anti-Magic), but Coordinator also believes that Erza just want to get married that bad.
    • In a special chapter Erza manages to make rogue mage, Moulin Rouge (who, as another bonus chapter revealed, was Bisca prior to joining Fairy Tail), fall for her...after beating the crap out of her. Maybe it was the head patting at the end.
    • Minerva has embraced full-on Foe Yay for Erza in the Tartarus arc, becoming depressed when it looked like Erza had died outside their battle, and becoming ecstatic and even referring to her as "Beloved" when they continue fighting later.
  • Mira and Erza also have a bit of their own Les Yay together, there's the normal kind where they are extremely close friends, even if they butted heads as kids. Then there is the weird S&M fetish they seem to have for one another.
    • Of course its no surprise by now, that Lucy got roped into their games.
  • Ichiya x Eve: Why did Rufus show to him a precise memory of Ichiya taking a bath to Eve?
  • A bit between Rufus x Gray too. Rufus seems to flirt slightly with Gray during the battle, even calling his future defeat as a "requiem" to him. Furthermore, Gray is a bit obsessed with the idea of personally defeating Rufus in battle.
  • Flare x Cana: Flare uses her Prehensile Hair to restrain Cana and then give her a bath, making sure to "clean every nook and cranny".
  • Kyouka x Seilah: The former wants to "take care" of the latter. Next time we see her, Seilah is smiling in a bed. That's hardly subtle.
  • Millianna x Kagura: Millianna's guild card said she joined Mermaid Heel because she had fallen "Head over Heels" for Kagura after meeting her.
    • The next chapter clarifies that it's a sisterly admiration only, though. Seems to be more of an "adventures in translation" thing.
  • Kagura x Yukino: Kagura did declare Yukino as her property.
  • Fairy Tail Zero gives us Mavis x Zeira. The Furo Scene has them cuddling with each other, naked, while Zeira says the fairies are there in their hearts.
