after atlas went home, and all the other dragons did as well. I made the prediction/hope that since none of the dragon slayers were able to down a dragon, that they would meet an old dragon slayer, one that had beaten a dragon, and through that learn ways to progress the dragon slayers strength (primarily natsu/gajeel to me) but anyway, it may not be an old dragon SLAYER but it is an old dragon and i'm sure theres loads that natsu could learn from him, especially since hes a fire dragon like natsu, and natsu is the prince of the fire dragon technically.
Anyway i hope my prediction is right and natsu learns from atlas.

Since then we've learned that dragon slayers were created to turn the tide in a dragon civil war, and Acnologia was a dragon slayer that went rogue and started killing all dragons eventually turning into a dragon himself as the side effect of lengthy use of DS magic. Human history says Zeref played a role in Acnologia changing from a man to a dragon, which fits to some extent what else is known about Zeref. Namely that he's most known for his "Living Magic" which seems to primarily involve turning objects into living creatures, usually ridiculously powerful monsters and demons.
We've never gotten any real hints that he himself is a dragon slayer, and the fact that his response to sensing Acnologia approaching Tenrou was to GTFO the island rather than fight with DS magic speaks against it.
Thinking about it I wonder if that other rogue that appeared during the dragon king festival incident will have a role to play in this arc. We had the main rogue who was behind the 7 dragons appearing but mid battle an alternate rogue appeared in current rogue's shadow and spoke to him. I would think its incredibly likely this rogue will be important in future arcs, perhaps in this one. I wonder if this other rogue allied himself with zeref and acknologia rather than trying to become king on his own. It would be interesting if he had something to do with the ice. Perhaps that rogue did not get sting's light dragon magic but rather some ice dragon lachrima or something and froze atlasflame knowing he would be a threat to them all.
Cant exactly say who made the ice, my prediction? probably whoever taught ul, seems the ice is there to actually seal a door to the monsters like the regression magic guy and the bird-eye creature natsu just beat. and apparently but releasing the ice like gray did it caused the door to open according to the first creature.
This village was likely built around atlas flames grave and the fire that remained there forever where he died.
We dont know much about dragon lachrima and where it comes from or how/why this lachrima gives dragon slaying. my theory.
Dragon Lachrima is formed from remnants of slained dragons magic/body.
This is why sting/rogue who killed there dragons have lachrima inside them which is the same as their type of dragon slaying, shadow/holy.
They say dragon slaying evolves by killing dragons and soaking in there blood, this could be an alternate method of absorbing power from the killed dragon b4 it becomes lachrima. or this could just be legend and the true way is through the leftover lachrima. could be wrong though.
My assumption since we haven't ever seen a killed dragon, is it could be similar to how in edolas when exceed where killed they became a lachrima. even though we saw a dragon graveyard with bones it doesn't mean a form of lachrima wouldn't be left behind for them.
And now that this fire which is the remnants of atlas flames magic has been brought back to strength, he will most likely teach natsu something or turn himself into a lachrima for natsu which would make sense because he is a fire dragon like natsu so it would match perfect like sting/rogue.
I wish its the real dragon brought back but i doubt it from the way wendy spoke and things seem.
no matter what this screams natsu powerup
