Can we just appreciate how kind and nice person is Lucy Heartfilia?
After her battle against Flare she was bitter (which is understandable) and sad. She wasn’t proud of herself even when she did her best and deserved the victory.
And, do you know what? She didn’t hate Flare, in fact, Lucy was worried about her safety when Raven Tail was caught at the tournament. Not a single bit of disdain was inside Lucy’s heart.
Lucy is the first person who forgives Flare, and I’m not talking about shipping (I don’t) or friendship, this is a friendly reminder of how wonderful character is Lucy.
It’s sad how people forget that fact. I don’t.
