At first I really didn't like Lucys character, I thought she would be a typical female backup type who was weak and emotional, but she really isn't. Im really liking her the most right now, shes my favorite female of the series and probably my favorite character overall, close with Happy and Gildartz.
Mission accomplished for GH, I don't see they being stopped at this point already, now all they have to do is escape. FT is too damaged and needs to tend to the wounded before following them. Im betting that all the GH kin were "playing" around with FT and weren't really beaten up that bad, will get up and zoom off to the ship swearing to have a rematch again one day, etc. etc...
Id like to find out where Mest is though, he could change this whole war up with a quick teleport, steal back Zeref and teleport to a different location.
