D.Gray-man, Vol. 17: Parting Ways
He and Bookman are sent by the Vatican to record the "hidden great war between mankind and demons" as Exorcists with The Black Order. And thus for the first time in his tutelage, Lavi is not just an observer but a soldier. Prior to signing on as an Exorcist, Lavi's views on humans were borderline misanthropic: after recording numerous battles, he concludes that humans are stupid; after seeing hundreds of coffins laid out at HQ, he decides that the war between humans and demons is a losing one for the humans, that is.
So dismissive is he of humans that while the people at HQ attempt to befriend and protect him, he thinks of their existence in terms of it being "excluded from history. As Lavi says: "I soon came to the point where I didn't know whether my smiling face was a lie or not. Lavi's disposition is very good-humored, goofy, and sometimes even slapstick, but he has a dark side, too, and a past cloaked in mystery.
What is not unknown is that much like Lenalee, he treasures his friends, so much so that he often acts impulsively and has to be reminded by Bookman several times that as the successor to the Bookman legacy, Lavi is not supposed to get involved with the young Exorcists; Lavi is not supposed to care. From the reactions of the crew at HQ, Lavi is still relatively new at this point in the timeline, as he is still a dispassionate observer attempting to maintain distance between himself and the Exorcists Bookman in training, yo!
She added the honorifics -kun for Allen as a person of senior status would do for a junior cause she's older than Allen by age and she's in the Order longer than him. As for Kanda, she dropped -san and calls him directly by his surname, and it's not surprising cause she knows him ever since she was 8, therefore, it's only natural that she eliminate formalities, but still, she doesn't call him by his given name.
As for Lavi, alias or not, it is his name. And since, he's older than her in terms of age, she would probably have addressed him as Lavi-san if she doesn't know him so well or at least Lavi-kun if they are more attached. Calling him directly by his given is something that only very close friends would do perhaps childhood friends, but heck, this doesn't apply to Kanda. Or couples ;D Which is why I find strange for a person like Lenalee who either addresses the guys with their surname, add honourifics, or by occupation, would actually address him as Lavi XD" In the present timeline, the first real hint that there could be something more to this friendship occurs mid-series in chapter 56 when Lenalee fails to locate Allen after parting with him to save a child while he attempts to save Suman Dark, an Exorcist whose Innocence is killing him.
She rushes back to the ship Lavi is on he had been fighting akuma that had attacked the ship and asks for his help in finding their friend. Lenalee, being the sensitive person she is, needed someone to be there for comfort, and she turned to Lavi for it. So off the bat, we have a scene where Lavi comforts Lenalee. Both Lavi and Lenalee are despondent. But while Lavi is able to see the situation for what it is how can Allen fight akuma without Innocence?
She sits on the ship, staring unblinkingly and emotionlessly into space, and Lavi, tired of seeing her walk down Guilt Trip Lane, smashes a window and yells at her: "There was nothing we could have done… we were all desperately fighting for our lives yesterday. There was no way… any of us could have helped him.
This is a war! We had no choice! Get over it and stand up!!! Lenalee cries; the others glare at him for making her do so. Bookman hits Lavi aside the head and says to him the words that will haunt Lavi in future chapters: "Do you believe yourself to be God's apostle? You are the successor of "bookman" and nothing else. Haven't I taught you to be nothing more than an onlooker, regardless of the situation?

As Bookman, you must place yourself within that, and record all matters with fairness. You must not be affiliated with anything, nor be biased. In the hidden history, there will be evidence of war, and because of that war, history will change. Don't be taken in by the war. That night, the ship is attacked by four akuma, and while the ship struggle to fight three of the akuma hidden by the clouds, Lenalee goes to fight the level three akuma Eishi.
Lavi shouts at her not to do it because she can't fight him on her own, but Lenalee disregards his concerns and races into the air to challenge Eishi head-on. Lavi is stuck mid-air on his hammer, an injured Bookman in his arms. He can only watch, horrified, as Lenalee and Eishi battle it out in the glow of the full moon - he doesn't care about the ship below him; he doesn't even care about himself as he is in a weak position at that moment. No doubt he would fight alongside her if he could, but he is holding an injured Bookman, his own injuries from an earlier attack have returned, and he is unable to fight over water like Lenalee is.
So he becomes an unwilling recorder to a battle that could cost him another friend. Lenalee kicks Eishi into the ocean; as she falls to the ocean to continue the battle, she tells Lavi to return to the ship, that she has made a decision. I planned on apologizing to you once I returned to the ship. Even though we were both distressed about Allen-kun… you were worried about me. Thank you" chapter 71, All four akuma dead, the sailors and Exorcists on board count the men and prepare to turn the ship in the direction Lenalee was last seen, but Lavi is impatient, and when he can no longer repress his anxiety, he prepares to ride his hammer to look for Lenalee.
The sailors attempt to stop him; they fail. She wants to bandage his wounds, pointing out that once he leaves her time recovery all his injuries will return. Lavi takes off from the ship in search of Lenalee, and he is shocked to see that in order to protect her, Lenalee's Innocence crystallized around her. One of Cross' modified akuma had retrieved her from the ocean and takes her back to the ship, Lavi following close behind.
Once her Innocence deactivates… well, the reunion has to be seen chapter This, I think, is the turning point in their relationship. Soon afterwards, the Exorcists and three sailors who survived the attack must leave the ship, as Miranda is struggling to keep her Innocence activated and the fatigue is worsening. Once in Edo, Lavi and the Exorcists attack the Earl after he issues an order to his akuma to go after General-level Exorcists.
Lavi, boiling mad and thirsting for revenge, goes after Tyki, leaving Lenalee who no longer has her Innocence and limited use her legs behind with Miranda. But Tyki is a bad-ass mofo dispatches Lavi quickly and immediately goes after Lenalee.
He knocks out Miranda and is about to kill an interfering Chaoji one of the survivors on the ship when suddenly Kanda arrives. So what was so shippy about the whole thing? Just the set-up for what happens next: Kanda hands Lenalee to Lavi so that he can go kill akuma. Lavilina: Kanda approved. The first word out of his mouth besides " uuh …" chapter 88 : The Noah descend upon the crystal per orders of the Earl, Tyki going after Kanda while Lavi fights with Skinn Bolic. And even though he is fighting a huge monster-looking creature, Lavi still keeps his eyes on Lenalee.
He can only watch as the Earl lowers himself toward the crystal chapter Allen, Lavi, Chaoji, Kanda, and Krory follow after her. From then on, the group is slowly picked off, as Kanda stays behind to fight Skinn Bolic while Krory gives his all to fight Jesdebi. The three remaining Exorcists and Chaoji make their way to the room that houses Tyki and Road. On their way, this interesting exchange takes place. And is Lavi… blushing? Damn shippy-glasses. Anyway, once they reach the third room, the group is greeted by Road and Tyki, who have set up a table as if for a formal dinner.
All four take seats at the opposite end of the table, and while Tyki glares and Road flirts with Allen, Lenalee thinks about Kanda and Krory and balls her fists in anger and sadness - Lavi, sitting next to her, reaches out a hand to comfort her chapter Sound effect in first panel: squeeze. He is aware of her distress even in the midst of violence and terror, heartache and sorrow; her needs, feelings, and well-being are foremost.
And Lenalee does notice. At the very least, she acknowledges all that Lavi has done. Why is Lenalee apologizing? No one blames her for giving her all to ensure that her friends live to see another day. Up till this point, he has looked out for her and comforted her and protected her as much as he could. And now… he has to fight to free her. One of the first she constructs is of Bookman revealing to Lavi the order the Vatican had issued them joining The Black Order. First: why Lenalee? Because she's a girl? Or because she is The Girl?
Road perused Lavi's records so that she could fuck with his mind. She chose Lenalee because she knew it would elicit a reaction based on raw emotion. Just seconds ago, Lavi remembered that the world he was in was nothing but a dream, and yet as soon as dream Lenalee floats by, he jumps out of the canoe and swims to the coffin. Once again, reason took a second seat to emotion; Lavi lost his objectivity.
Road knew what she was doing when she sent Lenalee floating down the river past the canoe. How great are those feelings? Even when Road sends more dream people after Lavi, he continues to hold onto dream Lenalee chapter But of course, Lavi lets her go when Fake! Lenalee attempts to stab him. Love hasn't made him a fool… yet. Even Allen uses Lenalee in hopes of eliciting an emotional response from Lavi.

Allen, who cannot go all-out on his nakama, attempts to appeal to the real Lavi still inside of the fake Lavi: "Lavi… can't you hear… my voice? Here… the only ones who can protect Lenalee and Chaoji are us. Krory said as much, didn't he…? Kanda… is probably fighting… Lenalee… her comrades… the Lenalee who thought of us as more important than even the world is crying…. Does Allen appear to know that Lavi is weak against Lenalee her tears?
Unfortunately, Fake! But Lavi does pull through in the end bec ause he is made of a million wins. Unfortunately, he has Lenalee's fist to contend with. That's not fair, Lenalee! Allen did some crazy-ass shit, too! So… why does Lenalee punch him? As the caption says, Allen did some crazy stunts, too. Not only that, when she did punish him, Allen merely got a slap! He did what he had to do to win the fight as to free Lenalee and Chaoji, even if it meant taking the force of his own Innocence head-on.
Ah… perhaps this is how Lenalee shows her love.

The stronger the punch, the stronger the love? Yes, I can believe that twisted logic. Worked for Ranma and Akane. The group, intact, makes it out of the ark. This is very bad news for the The Black Order HQ: they have the egg machine responsible for making akuma but the Earl wants it for dinner back, so he sends Lulubell, another Noah, to HQ to retrieve. But she gets bored if she has to create chaos and carnage by herself, so she brings along a horde of akuma to attack the base. Allen and the Generals get in on the action. The three Innocent-less Exorcists attempt to get in on it too because they have a rendezvous with death , but only Kanda is allowed to show how awesome he is fight.
