SummaryEdit

Lucy and Yukino want to destroy Eclipse

Lucy and Yukino prepare to destroy Eclipse

At the palace, Wendy and Laxus continue battling Zirconis while Princess Hisui watches, not wanting to leave the site. Suddenly, Lucy arrives with the diary of her future self. Reading it aloud, the group learns that destroying the Eclipse Gate in the present will prevent anyone in the future from using it, which makes sure that Future Rogue can't use it to travel back in time. Though doubtful whether such a plan will work, the group decides to give it a shot as they lack any other options. Together, Lucy and Yukino summon the Twelve Zodiac Spirits for a combined assault on the gate. However, this proves fruitless as the gate is made of an alloy highly resistant to Magic. Despite this, Lucy still refuses to give up.

Meanwhile, Natsu and Atlas Flame continue their battle against Future Rogue and Motherglare. After nearly falling off the beast during the battle, Natsu learns that Frosch no longer exists in the future, having been killed in X792. Though he tries to tell Future Rogue that the present Frosch would be scared of all that has happened, Future Rogue claims he is no longer the person he once was and does not care. Angry, Natsu charges forth, telling him that what he's doing is destroying the past. Unwilling to let Future Rogue decide the future, Natsu continues telling him that they will decide how it will be for themselves. Obtaining power from Atlas Flame, Natsu delivers a devastating blow to Future Rogue and his Dragon and sends them flying.

Destroyed Eclipse

The Eclipse Gate is destroyed

Back at Mercurius, the girls continue trying to destroy the gate but are unable to put so much as a dent in it and begin reaching their limit. Suddenly, everyone spots the falling ball of fire and evacuates. As the dust clears, Motherglare and Future Rogue lay defeated in the rubble of the Eclipse Gate, their titanic fall having destroyed the magical device. True to the plan of Lucy's future self, the Dragons slowly begin disappearing. Zirconis, however, attempts to continue his fight as he disappears, prompting Hisui to calm him down and explain that there's no need. Introducing herself, the Jade Dragon learns that her name is the same as the color of his scales, gaining his interest in the name as he disappears.

Across the city, the Dragons and the Hatchlings disappear as the Mages celebrate. However, the Dragon Slayers remain unsatisfied as none of them were able to defeat a Dragon. Acknowledging that none that they fought were on par with Acnologia, Sting and Rogue are upset but nonetheless glad that their comrades are safe.

Meanwhile, as he is returned to his own time, Future Rogue reveals to Natsu the name of the person who would kill Frosch one year in the future and asks him to warn his present self to protect the young Exceed. Simultaneously, the body of Future Lucy disappears as well, with the girl finding herself alone in a golden plain. Suddenly, Natsu and her guildmates appear nearby and invite her to come with them, as they continue to have more fun together. In the present, the diary disappears as well, following which Lucy hugs Natsu, thanking him for everything he has done.
