My Resolve! (あたしの決意!, Atashi no Ketsui!) is the 29th episode of the Fairy Tail anime. It first aired on May 10, 2010.
Fairy Tail starts to rebuild their destroyed guild after the war between them and Phantom Lord Guild has passed. Lucy Heartfilia returns home to her father and shows him her resolve to stay on the path she believes in and live as a Mage of Fairy Tail.
The war is over, but Lucy Heartfilia seems oddly not overjoyed. Natsu Dragneel asks Gajeel Redfox where he learned his Dragon Slayer Magic from, and he responds that it was Metalicana, the Iron Dragon, who taught him. He then discloses that Metalicana left one day, and Natsu figures out the right time (7 July of x777). Gajeel is hopeful that Natsu knows his whereabouts, but in fact, Igneel, the dragon who raised Natsu, left the same day. They wonder why all the sevens, but have no answer. The two bicker and conclude they have to fight again one day.
The guild is in ruins, but everyone is confident they can rebuild it. Lucy keeps feeling culpable, but Makarov’s words of Love make her cry. Makarov thinks of the punishment from the Magic Council and he cries too, but for very different reasons. One week from the war, the guild is slowly rebuilding. The Rune Knights came and investigated, and found Fairy Tail “almost” innocent and Phantom Lord guilty. Lucy is telling these things to her mother in a letter and wonders if it was really her father’s doing. She fears her father might do it again, a thought she cannot bear.
The work is going on slowly, but everyone is having fun at it. Juvia Lockser has stayed behind, and made Gray Fullbuster a lunch box, which gets eaten by Erza Scarlet and Natsu. Loke then comes with Lucy’s Gate Keys and wants Gray or Natsu to give them to her. He is shown to have an antipathy for Celestial Spirit Mages, or rather, a fear of.
Gray, Natsu, Happy and Erza decide to visit Lucy, but she is not there. Erza finds a note, while Happy finds the letters she wrote to her mom. They haven’t been sent. Erza then reads the note, which says she went home. Everyone wonders why. On a train, Lucy remembers an experience she had with her father. She made him a rice ball, but he threw it on the ground and screamed at her. It was her birthday that time.
When Lucy comes home, every servant is happy to see her. They genuinely love her, and one of the girls comes and gets her. She is expected by her father in his rooms. She dresses up like she would when she lived there, and goes to confront her father. When she meets him, she tells him that she is sorry she left without a word. Her father thinks of this as her return, and begins to tell her of his plans to marry her to some rich boy. All he thinks is business, so Lucy is forced to cut him short. She states she went there to make things known to him. She will search for her own happiness her own way, and also threatens him not to go near Fairy Tail again, or he will be considered an enemy. She confesses she doesn’t want dresses, or fortunes, or anything. She renounces her identity as Lucky Lucy Heartfilia, and proclaims that her new family knows her as just Lucy.
She tells her father it will be hard to leave the house she lived with her mother, and also her friends (the servants), but she states that if her mom were still alive, she would want her to do what she feels it’s right. She goes away, and stops by her mother’s memorial before leaving. Oddly enough, Layla Heartfilia died the same year all the dragons left, but Lucy doesn’t know this.On her way out, the group catches up with her, with everyone glad to see her, with Happy and Natsu crying. She explains to them why she went home. Erza compliments on the village, but Lucy says it is her family’s garden, up until a nearby mountain. This sends everyone into a state of sycophancy, and Lucy, talking to her mother in heaven says that Fairy Tail is already a part of her, and doesn’t think she can live without them. Together, Team Natsu returns home…
