the members of fairy tail feel the very same effects that has happened to wendy. their energy being sapped from their bodies as they feel cold and dreadful inside. they collapse onto the ground, trying to keep themselves up after that vampiric drain. heavy breathing and thoughts of sorrow slowly cloud their minds.
erza: what… what is this….
levy: my mind….. its so….
laxus: i cant give up…. not now….
gray: deliora…. ur…. these memories…. theyre returning…. not now….
cana: i feel so…. lonely….
juvia: juvia is sad…. but why…
lucy: this is fear…. its so evil… i ccant take it anymore.
as they all fall into the sorrow and despair from the effects of ostarions draining powers. the one who still shows more signs of life than the others despite what happened. Natsu is on one knee with a fist on the ground holding him up. he has no intentions of giving up. despite being drained, his indomitable willpower continues to thrive, not giving in to the sorrow.
natsu: what are you all complaining about…. we have more than this… SO GET UP!
his yell suddenly hits them hard, almost like a slap across the face. they all slowly crawl around to try and get back up. they all look at natsu, who has some fire left in him still.
lucy: natsu…. how…
natsu: what gildarts once told me. Fear is not evil. it is to know our own weaknesses. once you know your weakness, people will become stronger and kinder. our weaknesses right now is our feeling that fuel him.
natsu begins to get back up onto his two feet. his energy feels like it is coming back to him the more he resists. his words begin to stir something inside of each of the other members. even wendy is able to come back after what happened to her and tries to crawl back up like the others.
erza crawls back onto her knees
erza: your right… natsu… its just like hazama…. he thrives on the emotions of others as they suffer.
mirajane: so than how do we defeat such a monster?
natsu: you get back up, back up on your two feet. you continue to fight. and you dont give in to your feelings!
as he speaks, his fire begins to spark back once more
gray: this whole time, weve been afraid of what might happen to us in the future, that we let it take over our thoughts.
cana: we dont have any other choice but to fight. she says as she manages to stand up as well slowly.
levy: we cannot give up.
gajeel: were not going to go down that easily. i can still fight.
lucy: she manages to get back up and help wendy up as well. were fighting to save the people of mobius.
wendy: so long as we continue to fight for them… theres no way we can be defeated.
erza: so long as we have the power to protect our friends… gets back up on her feet. that is all the power we ever need. we will not yield to the likes of you or the Balloon master.*
everyone is slowly recovering from that last attack and can feel their energy slowly coming back to them as their willpower and determination returns to them. despite loosing some of their energy, they still dont give up and overcome the sorrow and darkness that was within their minds.
they all manage to get back onto their feet and slowly make their way to natsu and form a line and face off against ostarion. their wills overcoming all that was thrown against them. their doubts, their sorrrow, their anger, their fear. all of those things that had gotten in their way has been almost erased from their thoughts.
slowly, evveryone begins to feel their magics flowing to them once more as they stand united agains the odds.
natsus fire burns brightly around him once more
erza has her sword in hand once more and has a strong stance
gajeel is in his iron dragon scales
a cold mist surrounds gray
water circles around juvias body
wind flies around wendy
canas cards fly around her as they glow and sparkle in the sunlight as she has three in each hand.
levy is surrounded by a green aura of her magic power as she raises a hand out.
lightning crackles all over laxus
a dark purple aura envelops mirajanes demonic form
lucy has two keys in her hand as they glisten in the sun
fairy tail is ready once more to fight. leting go of their weaknesses in order to win this war and free mobius from the balloon master.
natsu burns ever so brightly as he takes a few steps forward.
Natsu: we now know our own weaknesses. so what will we do now. we have to become stronger. we stand up and fight. maybe we cant help but feel afraid alone, but now we have our friends nearby. now there is nothing to fear anymore.
everyones magic energy explodes much more than ever before as natsu speaks. his words are more empowering than anything they can ever hear. his words strengthens everyones resolves and makes them cast away their weaknesses so they can overcome the foe they have before them. through their willpower they manage to supress their emotions and overcome them, cutting off ostarions fuel source.
natsu then explodes forward towards ostarion
natsu: BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ALONE!
with that said, everyone quickly follows through and charge ostarion with their newfound strength and determination.
they all leap all around ostarion, completely surrounding him, giving him no chances toprotect himself. he is exposed on all fronts by a newly reinvigorated fairy tail.
natsu makes the first hit and lands a fire punch onto his chest, knocking him back and cracking a couple ribs.
laxus and gajeel quickly intercepts him and they both unleash powerful roundhouse kicks that strikes directly at his spine, shattering a few of the frames as he is sent in another direction.
juvia and gray preform a unison raid together, combining their water and ice magic and unleashes it upon ostarion, completely freezing him in powerful ice that even fillls up the inside of him, leaving him completely defenseless.
cana throws her cards at ostarion as levy uses her solid script magic to shoot a massive stream of fire at him. wendy uses her sky dragon roar onto him as well. all three of their fire andwin magic combine in yet another unison raid, the wind amplifying the flames of both their attacks and causes ostarion to explode in hellish flames as he is sent flying in another direction due to the impact.
lucy summons the taurus of the zodiac spirits and with erza: the two of them strike at ostarion with overwhelming power that it cracks even more bones on him. with a few swipes of their blades, they send him knocking him into the air.
mirajane flies up into the air and greets ostarion with a vertical axe kick to the top of his skull with such force it sends him rocketing down to the ground. it also knocks the sword out of his hand and it flies off somewhere.
as soon as he even tries to get back up, he is immediately attacked by other members. they all combine their powers and skills, working together as one coherent unit just like in sparks training. they are working as one, working together and focusing on the enemy at hand. their attacks have no end as they continue to strike at ostarion, leaving no room of opportunity to catch any form of break. their timing and coordination of attacks is unrelenting and without any mercy.
fairy tail had cast aside their weaknesses, so that they can overcome all oppositions. their wills are absolute and their convictions are without question. they will continue to fight as one and with the help of their other friends and allies, they will bring the Balloon master and his empire to ruins. they continue their attack on the skeleton king, not taking a step back, not worrying about the future. all they care about right now is defeating ostarion, the skeleton king.
