The problem here is similar to that of Haruhi's Chronicles, essentially you have the story being told from the perspective of one character while focusing on another one.
Lucy is like Kyon, we see their worlds through their eyes and experiences despite the focus them not being the constant focus of the story.
Interestingly Lucy can, like Kyon, influence the world in a way no one else can despite being considered the least special member of her party.
Kyon despite being a human is the only one who can put the over enthusiastic super powered main character under control and strangely enough he is implied to have some deep connection to the truth behind Haruhi's powers.
Lucy despite being the weakest in Natsu's brigade (lol) can quell up any confrontations when needed not to mention she is also deeply involved in the biggest mistery of the series.
Even more odd is the fact that both Lucy and Kyon tend to get the greatest amount of abuse in their respective universes.
Anyway, back to the main character issue you can say that Natsu is the
main character by focus while the de facto main character would actually be Lucy.
In essence Natsu gets the most important role in every adventure despite the focus many times being another character's own issues.
Lucy on the other hand plays the constant point of orientation from were the reader can get a grasp of the situation and immerse himself in the story.
It's a funny yet complicated way to tell a story but it pays off when done right.
Its pretty simple, both Natsu and Lucy are the main characters, so far all of Mashimas bigger stories had 2 mains.
I have to agree with 1337 haxor. Even though both characters are very important Lucy's role seems more constant. I see Natsu more as the hero of the manga, where as Lucy being the main character and the center of the manga.
Why do you guys have to limit it to one main character?

Main character can be taken as being multiple, a pair or one but Fairy tail seems to take a lot of its characters seriously so you cant really tell who is the main BUT
Natsu and the others slayers story is always being added to throughout the arcs, but Natsu is the one who does mostly the hero and is more focused on thus he is the main male, Gray's story has been done, its Ultears now not his, he's only connected.
Lucy's is also a mystery what with she being the narrator but not only, we see her improving from arc to arc and there are mysterious revolving around her which Mashima gives us in small snippets, her mum, her, magic, the keys being some examples ^^ Erza's story is done, we got it all now, lucy we have yet to know what she did in that year she wasnt with FT after running away and how she got her first keys and her mum. she is the main female
then again Mashima said in the interview we can make our own assumptions but the above is my opinion ^^
Gray fall in love with Ultear (but she dump him later for Gildartz)
Juvia Rage @ Gray she become a "L" with Lisanna.
Makarov n HADES become friends n make up.
Azuma become Erza stalker bec she's the first one to kick his ass !!
Gazille Marry Levy...n they have mini nerds Gazile version.
Rusty Rose become a gardener.... Fried leave every1 to search for Laxus bec he's in love with him.
Elfman marry Ever....n u all saw how their baby gonna look like !
Wendy n Meldy become best friends.
and finally ( Bluenote is getting chased by Zeref ) bluenote runin like a chicken !
very cute Ifrit. ~Ghost
