Does anyone realise what just happened!!!
Arcadios that diabolical B******, this was his plan to get Lucy. Now they have her.
Oh god, time travel. Plot holes will be inevitable.
Ok, so what should happen is almost all of them will die like Charle predicted but with Lucy on surviving it. She then will go back in time to change what happened. Lucy could be the hooded girl with Zeref like magic. This will just get confusing.
Well now we have efficient evidence that someone, probably Lucy, used the gate to go back in time.
Well, if she did, it wouldn't explain (right now) how she ended up with Zeref-like magic when she didn't have it before. But disregard that thought for now. So now I see how Levy ended up (or is going to end up) in that situation. The Eclipse Plan activates and they're all sent 400 years back into the past... right in the middle of that War of the Dragons. And everyone gets wiped out. Sad, sad times ahead T_T
ugh, I hate these type of situation, where Natsu and the others are helpless and put into prison or dungeon. However as usual, they'll break out of it. Anyway, probably Lucy with Zeref powers could be that they traveled 400 years into the past (where Zeref is) and then Lucy went into the future just before the whole Eclipse thing? Or maybe the gate uses similar powers to that of Zeref and leaves the user with trails of Zeref magic (even if they don't use it).
Either way, like Afro Thunda said...this could bring sad times soon
I see, perhaps the girl with Zeref's power, has taken Zeref's place (his curse), because of what they did in the past... this would mean that she is from a parallel world were the timeline was already changed and even more fucked up ? Or, perhaps from the future itself, assuming that you can only go into past with this time-machine ?
(BTW. There is going to be a new anime from creators of Stains Gate :P.)
But then, wasn't Zeref born with that curse ? Perhaps the balance of the world itself needs someone like Zeref to exist, thus the need to chose another Zeref because of his dissapearing in the past ?
This explains how Zeref met Natsu in the past... wait a minute, does that mean that they weren't able to change it ? Perhaps, the dragons as well met them (their DS/children) in the past at first ?
What if, the Dragons have returned to past as well ? Perhaps they are already prepared to face Zeref when the time comes, as they mentioned themselves ?
That would make the most sense out of all the theories so far. They go back in time and stop zeref but whoever was left over from that time simply took his place after all was said and done.
upcoming anime thread ;).
Well anyway, it's probably going to be fu*ked up pretty badly, because Zeref exist in the current time-line, together with the new girl with Zeref's power, while Zeref remembers Natsu from the past... so, the current time-line is one in which Natsu & The Gang went back in time, but weren't able to change history, while the Zeref-Girl has to be from the future, assuming that the thing that they will bring from the past, will destroy the current kingdom with Zeref, thus creating a need to chose another Zeref... beside that machine most likely can only go back in time + it can only be activated by Stellar Magician with 12 keys... yep this smells like Lucy... or the other Stellar Mage ?
