Fairy Tail all began when Lucy Heartfilia had a fateful encounter with fiery dragon slayer, Natsu Dragneel. After quickly befriending one another, Natsu recruited Lucy into his infamous guild, Fairy Tail. Since then, the two have been an inseparable and powerful pair with an interesting dynamic to their relationship.
While they are not yet an official couple like Gray and Juvia or Gajeel and Levy, it’s no secret that Natsu and Lucy share one of the closest bonds in the entire series. Naturally, fans and even Hiro Mashima himself love to pair the two main characters together in romantic fan art.
10 Fairies By @Shandisworld
Despite having a title like Fairy Tail, the main characters and members of the guild aren’t actually fairies. Rather, they are mages with powers of all kinds.
That being said, artist @shandisworld cleverly adds the literal meaning of “Fairy Tail” to Lucy in this cute fan art. With sparkling fairy wings and a pink pointed tail, she embraces a long-haired Natsu in a shaded forest of leaves.
9 Lift By @Zippi44
If Fairy Tail took place in a more modern time period, the characters would be wearing much more different clothes from their usual outfits suitable for combat.
In this traditional fan art by @zippi44, Natsu is lifting Lucy up with ease in his muscle tank, cargo pants, combat boots, and iconic scarf. In return, Lucy gives him an endearing look in her pretty pink dress, thigh-high socks, and ankle boots.
8 Hugs By @Arielucia
Natsu puts all of his time and effort into being the strongest and toughest he can be, which means he doesn’t always know how to properly show his affection.
As he’s being squeezed tightly by a happy Lucy, Natsu pouts in the most adorable way and doesn’t know how to express his emotions in this fan art by @arielucia. The addition of Plue in the middle of their hug makes for a truly wholesome moment between the two mages.
7 Worry By @Ksmile1313
In addition to being a funny and action-packed anime, Fairy Tail also has its fair share of heartbreaking scenes and moments of uncertainty.
This emotional fan art by @ksmile1313 shows Lucy and Natsu standing back to back under a sky of stars. As Lucy clutches onto her heart with her head down, Natsu looks to the sky, deep in thought. Whether they’re thinking about one another or the safety of the world, it’s a lovely depiction of the pair.
6 A Gift By @Njblogart
Overall, Natsu and Lucy have a playful albeit chaotic friendship in which the dragon slayer’s impulsive nature drives Lucy crazy.
In this cute fan art by @njblogart, a romantic idea pops into Natsu’s head to surprise Lucy with a bouquet of flowers. The only problem in his chaotic way of executing his plan. As he carries her over to the surprise, Lucy shouts with her fists in the air, not knowing what the boy is scheming.
5 Rainbows In The Air By @Alina-chan
One of the prettiest and most romantic settings has to be underneath the trees of cherry blossom season. While cherry blossoms are pink in the real world, artist @alina-chan puts a colorful twist on the petals flowing around Natsu, Lucy, and Happy.
The stunning scene features a happy and blushing Natsu casually putting his arm around Lucy as they walk through a pastel rainbow of petals.
4 Prince Of Persia By @Karola2712
As a popular anime series, it isn’t uncommon for Fairy Tail to have fan-made crossovers with other franchises. Artist @karola2712 created the perfect crossover with the Prince of Persia.
Together, Natsu and Lucy fall through the sky with the most delicate touch of their noses. Natsu takes on the iconic outfit of the Prince, while Lucy wears the beautiful white top and black bottoms of Elika.
3 Seven Years Later By @Zippi44
Through the course of the series, Lucy becomes a writer and reporter who loves telling her own narrative. Naturally, she would want to make a record of the most important events in her life.
In a work of fan art by @zippi44, Natsu and Lucy pose closely together for a photo with the written caption, “The day he confessed!!” Hopefully, Natsu really does confess his love someday.
2 Steampunk By @Leons-7
The steampunk aesthetic is an interesting blend of science fiction and 19th-century culture, creating a distinct and gorgeous fashion trend. Coincidentally, steampunk fashion goes really well with Fairy Tail, as seen in this art by @leons-7.
Wearing a long tan and black dress, a bold Lucy pulls her man closer by the tie. Natsu willingly leans forward in his red outfit to match his hair. Their goggle and hat accessories top off the steampunk fashion nicely.
1 Flowers By @Karokitten-chan
A flowery field with petals blowing in the wind is the perfect setup for a romantic moment between any couple. Natsu and Lucy are no exception.
In this heartwarming fan art by @karokitten-chan, Natsu and Lucy are playing in the field of flowers together. Both of them are blushing as Lucy crowns Natsu as her flower prince.
Fairy Tail fans are sure to swoon over these romantic fan art pieces of Natsu and Lucy from a series of incredible artists.
