Fair-Weather Charm is the 57th chapter of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail.

Gray and Element 4 member Juvia engage in a fight, with Juvia overwhelming Gray with her angry onslaught. Gray manages to freeze Juvia for a brief moment, but releases her by accident. Gray states that the rain is gloomy and Juvia, enraged, attacks with even more vigor. However, Gray manages to freeze Juvia once more, defeating her and thus slowing down the Phantom Lord giant's chanting speed even more.


The rain stops

Juvia and Gray watch as the rain stops and the clouds clear

An angry Juvia, enraged because of Lucy, attacks rapidly, and Gray, unable to keep up with Juvia's pace, doesn’t even have the time to counter back. Gray tries to retreat inside the giant, but Juvia pursues him. Gray then jumps over Juvia and freezes her water, as well as Juvia herself. He then makes a “little” mistake by accidentally groping her, and out of embarrassment, releases her. Juvia says she cannot harm Gray, and tries to tell him that she loves him, but Gray suddenly comments on the rain being gloomy. This makes Juvia remember about how people ostracized her because of the rain that always accompanied her, which turned her into a reclusive being, and she unleashes all her anger on Gray in the form of boiling water. She screams that Phantom Lord was the only place that accepted her, but Gray frees himself from the beam of water, and delivers the final attack on her, using Ice-Make: Ice Geyser.

Juvia, laying beaten on the ground, can’t believe that she lost. To her amazement though, she sees that the sky has cleared. Juvia marvels at the beauty of the open sky. Gray asks Juvia if she still wants to continue the battle, but Juvia faints from adoration of Gray. The Phantom Lord giant's chanting speed is therefore decreased once again, and so the Abyss Break threat is close to elimination.
