[Theory] Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest – The Potential Of Selene

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest Chapter 73 - Selene, the moon and the ability to traverse dimension

Selene, The Moon Dragon God, has become an incredibly fascinating character in regards to her story, attitude and potential. What began as a Dragon that appeared evil turned into an existence that represented a more chaotic neutral alignment. What Selene seeks isn’t the suffering, destruction or annihilation of humanity but rather the longing for entertainment. The collateral derived is but an indirect consequence of her thirst for recreation. When amusement is at play, lesser existences relevant to her pursuit are assimilated to objects of entertainment to be taken advantage of. Selene is not evil but overwhelmingly transcendent in her perspective of less cultivated beings.

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest (Manga) – The Adventure Beyond

Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest chapter 1 - opening colour spread

When an end arrives, emotions from the corners of the extremes meld together into an ineffable moment. Whether it be joy, sorrow, relief, disappointment, satisfaction, numbness or indifference. It is a moment where the many feelings one holds for that experience cascades together. A story is no different. Upon its end, you come to characterise the meaning of the experience within emotion. If a story is particularly enjoyable and resonant with ones heart, a fascination for what lies beyond emerges. Such is the case with Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest for me. I can’t help but feel privileged and grateful that such a joyous and enjoyable story has a continuation. A story that now sees Fairy Tail target the 100 Years Quest that no other mage guild has managed to complete is over a century. Let the new adventure commence!

Fairy Tail (Manga) – The Fairy Within Our Hearts

Fairy Tail chapter 545 - color spread of Fairy Tail guild

Fairy Tail may not delve into themes as deep as identity and existentialism or analysis the philosophy of freedom and responsibility against the constructs of religion and society and it may not challenge the darker themes it does begin to voyage into but what Fairy Tail does have is heart, and a lot of it. It’s emotionally powerful scenes drive the story, the character development and the characters themselves. The encouraging touch of its embrace resonances deep within the reader, inspiring connections with the characters alive in its story and struggling through its world to be formed. And central to that evocation is the heart of the story; the guild Fairy Tail.

The heart is a miraculous existence that allows us to connect to others, to share our emotions with them and to have emotions shared with us. And yet, along with the joy it is able to conjure, the shadows of its rhythm also awakens a darker beat of love. A realm of negativity in which the echoes of optimism and bonds of relation can be submerged and lost within. Such concepts are the navigating expressions embodying the adventures and journeys within Fairy Tail. Characters lose themselves within their pain, torment and heart yet through their shared connection with others, they are able to accept the debilitating thoughts within their mind and embrace the warmth of their imperfections.

Fairy Tail Chapter 520 – The Scarlet Bond

Fairy Tail chapter 520 - Erza and Irene

Is this really how it will end? Irene…

In the end, it doesn’t seem fair, does it? Irene, who loved so much and gave so much for humanity, found herself continually mocked by the hands of fate. Irene didn’t get the chance to get to know Erza, to spend quality time together with her and to be a parent to her daughter. Irene was broken by the subjects of her love and cast down into a spiral filled with suffering and anguish eventually being overwhelmed by madness where she found herself driven by the desire to kill her own daughter. Since being imprisoned by her husband, it was moments of suffering followed by moments of suffering. Only at the end did Irene come to reclaim back the humanity slowly being lost within her rage. Still, it would have been inspiring and heart-warming if Irene had gotten the opportunity to be a mother and the chance to share her life with her daughter.

Fairy Tail Chapter 519 – The Bond Between Mother And Daughter

Fairy Tail Chapter 519 - Irene and Erza

When it all crumbles away, what remains?

No matter the pain Irene had to endure, no matter the years of torment she was broken by, no matter the loss she had suffered, when it came to her daughter, Irene could not forsake herself. She could not stop acknowledging the love she had for her daughter. Despite the act of abandonment, Irene had good intentions and ultimately feared Erza falling victim to her growing insanity. Irene knew the danger the darkness growing inside her represented and did not want the smile full of purity and hope that made her feel human again to disappear from Erza. Consequently, Irene left Erza at Rosemary Village to give her a future. Continue reading

Fairy Tail Chapter 516 – Irene’s Despair

Fairy Tail chapter 516 - Irene's despair

Surely, there must be a way to reclaim ones humanity once transformed…surely…

The fate of the Dragon Slayers leads to an end scorched in chaos and lamented by torment as the doomed plays spectator to their vanishing humanity powerless to prevent. With the essence of the Dragons coursing through them, the overwhelming Dragon presence within each Dragon Slayer eventually consumes them transforming the bearer into a Dragon with their human sides lost within the maelstrom of rage. The only way past that fate is to silence the Dragon essence within through the use of a power even more overwhelming – with the essence of a Dragon seeking to protect them from being consumed.

Fairy Tail – Irene Belserion, A Mother’s Sacrifice

Irene Belserion - colour by Silestiya18 (http://silestiya18.deviantart.com)

Just you wait Irene, your daughter will save you – colour by Silestiya18

There are certain developments within Fairy Tail that I believe so strongly will happen that I can’t help but theorize about and structure my very perception around. Developments that arrest my thoughts and beckon my heart deeply and intensely. Among them is Irene Belserion being saved from her centuries long suffering and pain. For Irene to get the opportunity to feel human again and to experience what it is like to be a mother. I believe wholeheartedly in this.

Fairy Tail Chapter 515 – Irene And Erza

Fairy Tail chapter 515 - Irene protecting Erza

How cruel humanity can be…

Irene endured for her child, she lived for her child and she even sacrificed her own humanity to protect her child. It was not by choice, it was by circumstance. When everything else was falling down around her, it was her love for her daughter that empowered her, her love that wished to protect her daughter. I just cannot see this battle going on without those feelings and sacrifices being reciprocated. Irene may be trying to kill Erza now, but once upon time before her senses numbed and emotions froze, she lived to protect her Erza. If it is Erza, I am sure she will save her mother and make her feel again, feel what it is like to be a mother. Please save Irene, Erza…
