It could also be Layla X Zeref
If that were the case Cana would have been S-class long ago too.
Besides, Zeref is clearly in love with Natsu. Look at how he cries every time he sees the guy.

The shipping wars in FT are pretty intense, but im really not sure why
The relationships that have been hinted at over and over again are:
Natsu x Lucy
Gray x Juvia
Jellal x Erza
Gajeel x Levy
Elfman x Evergreen
For some reason there is this whole thing with people wanting Gray x Lucy or Loke x Lucy and i really dont see where its coming from. Im guessing since Lucy is the main character, she has some sort of interaction with pretty much every FT character so thats were people are getting it from. Loke had that one moment were he was saved by Lucy, and with Gray the only moment i can remember is when Gemini transormed into him and told all his thoughts or whatnot. Maybe people ship GrayLu and LoLu because Nalu is so popular and they just want to mess with hardcore shippers or something, other than that im really not seeing it. Judging by the manga all the pairings will happen, with Nalu being the last one to be official.

Lucy/Gray gained a following because they're the straight men of the group, so it seems like they have more in common.
Lucy/Loke gained a following because he flirts with her whenever he makes an appearance, and also that stuff where she saved his life.
Lucy/Sting gained a following because a couple people who were toying with the idea did a good job writing fanfics or drawing them together and other people thought it looked cute. Kinda weird how his laughing didn't really sink that pair but everyone abandon Sting/Yukino just because he wasn't fazed by her getting kicked out.
There is of course the 5% that are decent if not great but it seems the percentage is getting even smaller.
I read most Fairy Tail fanfics on Fanfiction and 90% of shipping fics that deals with Natsu and Lucy involves Lisanna in some way. Whether its Natsu kicking Lucy off the team or the jealously angle. Its frankly terrible and I should stop torturing myself but the 5% of good fics keep bringing me back. The good news is that a fanfic's summary is a good indication of which ones to avoid.
Putting my rant aside about the terrible state of fanfics, specifically shipping ones.
I have to agree with you on the Sting and Lucy ship actually sailing.
Maybe the Natsu/Lisanna ship them to get rid of Lucy or just Natsu/Lucy haters.
I personally support Natsu/Lucy for those that haven't figured it out but I can see why Gray/Lucy and Loke/Lucy is popular. I just cannot see how or why Sting/Lucy is popular at this early stage.
Even Rouge/Levy is getting popular.
Its like people ship them for the sake of making sure the 1st gen dragon slayers don't end up with them. >.>^
I just hope Sting/Yukino make a comeback so I can deal with less Sting/Lucy or Natsu/Lucy becomes official. Although becoming official rarely affects shipping in fanfics as shippers are more likely to ship the opposite pairing even harder as is the case with Harry/Herminone in Harry Potter section.
This is just my opinion of course. If you ship Sting/Lucy or Rouge/Levy please don't take offense.
BTW some slightly humorous news for the shippers here. There is actually a Natsu/Minerva pairing on Fanfic.net lol. Talk about crack pairings.
Actually, I hate Natsu/Lisanna with a burning passion and still kind of like the idea of Sting/Lucy as a crack pairing, so I don't think it's all them fueling the new ship's engine. Rogue/Levy actually interested me first but... meh. I think people like to hold Rogue up as the super nice I-didn't-want-to-hurt-my-dragon-but-Sting-made-me one because he got that smile with Fro. Like they need to make him be extra good and sensitive to make up for Sting being a jerk. It get's annoying. Yukino gets that treatment X 10, and her personality seemed kind of drab to me, and when people pair her with Sting they call it Stiko, which is one N away from sounding really unfortunate. I'm kind of shallow when it comes to minor characters. I hope that pairing doesn't make a comeback.
Natsu/Minerva even freaks me out a little, and I've been exposed to this hellspawn known as Dobby/Hagrid, so I'm pretty desensitized to pairs that shouldn't ever happen.
(PS, two good methods for finding well written fanfics: avoid anything that takes place in high school and try to find a higher word count to chapter ratio. Anything with less than 1000 words per chapter, unless it's a oneshot, is invariably bad. It means they don't know how to add description, and usually those people rush through events and use sappy dialogue too-which is doubly unfortunate because they use mostly dialogue. A bonus point that should go without saying is that ActualCharacter/MyTotallyNotAMarySueOC is also usually god awful.)
