If Mashima wants to give Natsu the ability to go DF and say that's why then I'll be able to swallow the idea, but at the moment it seems like it's been too long since the ToH incident for Natsu to still feel any effects from it.
i have a feeling that natsu, gajeel and wendy r ganna go df by the end of this arc btw r we getting a ch this week?
Yea, we have a chapter this week. it'll probably come out tonight err.. well night time in Asia. so in like 8hours or so
Pre Time Skip in year x784 http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/295/19 here Sting is at max 10 yrs old, and claims to have killed his dragon parent.
All The Dragons disappeared in year x777, so if he did defeated a dragon he must have done it before they had disappeared. At that time Sting and Rogue must have been 2 or 3 yrs old.
How the hell can a 3 yr old baby kill a mighty dragon. Moreover can babies even remember things from when they were 2/3 yr old. Much less the desire or motivation to kill someone..
Clearly they weren't lying when they said they killed their dragon parents to lecter, natsu & gajeel.
Then the obvious answer is that their memory of killing dragons is manipulated one.
-->Now to which point is their memory a manipulated one? who manipulated their memory?
and to what end?
i wanna know y they need lacrimas in the first place, if they r trained by dragons already what would they need it honestly is it bcus they r so weak that they need lacrimas?
Another theory is that they were already dying, and the two just gave the finishing blow to their respective parent dragon. This would be more plausible as they say that they have Lacrimas implanted in them (which could be from their parents' corpses).
Unless of course, if their Lacrima is of a different element (no evidence to support this yet as so far they've only managed to show only one: Shadow and Light), then the first theory is possible and that both Dragons are still alive and well.
Oh 296, where are you? :3

I doubt, that Sting & Rouge were just 3 years old. We already assessed, that these two are at the same age as Wendy (before the time skip) and Wendy wasn't 3 years old when Geradine disappeard. Maybe Sting said those words to Lector, while Natsu already was "away" ?
By the way, I really hope, that Natsu DON'T use dragon force now! I hope the battle ends in a draw. If he beat them by now, the tag ballte would be less interesing (ok, there are the other team members, but what should happen to the 4 DS?)
Think about it - where would be the gain, if Natsu uses his stronges "attack" by now? I think or hope, Mashima holds this option back till the tag battle or thill the dragons arrive!
Besting a dragon at age 5 isn't much more likely. Even 6, if you want to say that time of the year made a difference (somehow)
I'm hoping Natsu manages to just hold them off for the half an hour. Or the two combine just barely beat him in time, but the Gajeel comes back so it's still a draw. That way they get to win by one point in the final event and make Sting eat his words from day 2.
Also, the more I think about it the more I really hope that one of them will turn out to be Wendy's younger brother.
