This is the general guide in creating and/or editing of an article in this wiki. Failure to comply will result to the deletion of your article or the blocking of your user account depending on the gravity of your actions.

Note: The wiki community asks that all article titles and description be in English. Ideally this means using proper English, with appropriate punctuation and capitalization, at all times.

If you wish to create an article but unsure of the title, you can simply type the characters names with an “x” in the middle as the temporary title. The male's name goes first before the female's. If both characters are from the same gender, then the more dominant character will be mentioned first.

Example: AB or Character A x Character B

Ones you have created the article, please put it up for discussion in the forums for others user to help you rename your article.

Rivals

The title should just be the name of the two characters with an “vs.” in the middle.

Example: Character A vs. Character B

Family

The title should just be the family name.

Example: Last Name Family

Friends

Appearance the outward phenotype or look of the character.[2]

Personality the particular combination of emotional, attitudinal, and behavioral response patterns of an individual.[3]

History

This section should contain two separate information of the characters' history or past unless the characters have the same background. If there is no history applicable, then it should be stated that there is none.

Example: Character A's history is unknown or have not yet been told.

Relationship, Rivalry, or Friendship

This section should contain a basic summary of the relationship of the two characters.

If the two characters barely interacted, it should be stated as well as their brief encounter and the fans' speculation.

Example: While almost no interactions have been shown between them, Character A and Character B belong in the same group, Group 1. Fans of the anime and manga also support Character A and Character B's relationship due to their same idea on leadership.

If the article is made with the characters never actually meeting each other, it should be stated as well as the fans' speculation.

Example: While almost no interactions have been shown between them, fans of the anime and manga support Character A and Character B's relationship due to their same idea on leadership.

Relationship may refer to interpersonal relationship, intimate relationship, or ethical relationship.

Intimate Relationship is an interpersonal relationship that involves physical or emotional intimacy. Physical intimacy is characterized by romantic or passionate attachment or sexual activity. While the term intimate relationship commonly infers the inclusion of a sexual relationship, the term is also sometimes used as a euphemism for a relationship that is strictly sexual.[4]

Interpersonal Relationship is a strong, deep, or close association/acquaintance between two or more people that may range in duration from brief to enduring. This association may be based on inference, love, solidarity, regular business interactions, or some other type of social commitment. Interpersonal relationships are formed in the context of social, cultural and other influences.[5]

Ethical Relationship, in most theories of ethics that employ the term, is a basic and trustworthy relationship that one has to another human being, that cannot necessarily be characterized in terms of any abstraction other than trust and common protection of each other's body. Honesty is very often a major focus.[6]

Synopsis

Synopsis a brief summary of the major points of a subject or written work or story, either as prose or as a table; an abridgment or condensation of a work.[7]

This section should only contain scenes wherein both characters are present. Scene where only one is present but there is a mention of the other character are acceptable.

The synopsis should be divided into different story arcs. If there are no scenes coming from the arc, then it should not be included in the page.

The list of story arcs are:

  • Macao Arc
  • Daybreak Arc
  • Lullaby Arc
  • Galuna Island Arc
  • Phantom Lord Arc
  • Loke Arc
  • Tower of Heaven Arc
  • Battle of Fairy Tail Arc
  • Oración Seis Arc
  • Daphne Arc
  • Edolas Arc
  • Tenrou Island Arc
  • X791 Arc
  • Key of the Starry Sky Arc
  • Grand Magic Games Arc
  • Eclipse Celestial Spirits Arc
  • Sun Village Arc
  • Tartarus Arc
  • Avatar Arc
  • Alvarez Empire Arc

Filler is a material that is combined with material of greater relevance or quality to "fill out" a certain volume.[8]

Scene coming from a filler arc should be mentioned after the title of the arc.

Example: <small>'''''Note:''''' The events in this arc occur only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.</small>

Trivia

Trivias are details, considerations, or pieces of information of little importance or value.[9]

This section is only for information that is shown about the two characters' relationship either from the manga or an interview or even a tweet from the creator himself.

Headcanons are not considered as trivia. It is an idea, belief, or aspect of a story that is not mentioned in the media itself, but is accepted by either the reader themselves or the fandom in general.[10]

References

This section contains the different references used in the article. At the end of every sentence or paragraph of the article, there should be a reference from where that particular scene or information came from. The reference is only needed on the relationship, synopsis, and trivia part of the article.

If the reference is used ones, then simply type the reference between <ref> and </ref>.

Example: <ref>Fairy Tail Manga: Chapter 1, Page 1</ref>

If the references is used more than ones, then replace <ref> with <ref name="">.

Example: <ref name="Fairy Tail Manga: Chapter 1, Page 1">Fairy Tail Manga: Chapter 1, Page 1</ref>
