The big thing about Natsu and Lucy is that they let each other be themselves. Lucy puts up with Natsu’s funny behavior, even if it annoys her sometimes.

A really important moment is during the 100-year quest when Lucy hugs Natsu from behind. She calms him down when he’s influenced by the dragon force and about to burn everything. It’s a powerful moment in their relationship.
