To the original Caius x Lightning fan club !
Claire "Lightning" Farron and Caius Ballad are warriors. In FINAL FANTASY XIII-2, they endlessly warred in Valhalla, a netherworld where time, life, and death hold no meaning, and where chaos reigns. Now, in LIGHTNING RETURNS, she has been tasked with resolving their rivalry... and saving him, as requested by his eternal charge, Yeul.
We see them a few times at war in both FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 and the downloadable scenario REQUIEM OF THE GODDESS. We know what happens at those moments, those flashes of time in a timeless world. But what about between those moments, or their meeting in the world he brought into being? Was it a meeting of circumstance? Or predestined before the world was even born?
Those are the questions we intend to answer. Those are the questions we intend to explore. These are the lives we intend to examine. Caius and Lightning are different, but not completely so. They are imperfect, but they can become complementary halves of a single whole.
Our challenge is to discover how.

Her appearance to him had been a vision in violet, a sight to behold, triggering memories and thoughts he had kept subdued quite a long time now. The first time he had seen her had been in a vision, long ago, centuries ago, when her name had not even been known to him, when the girl then had been a different one altogether, a little harder than the one he knew now and not too sure what to think of him spending a week trying to puzzle out the pink-haired woman leading a war in Cocoon centuries in the future.
Now, here she was, in his arms, blushing and grumbling and telling him how she hated having to dress in such elegance, but he only smiled and said she looked beautiful despite the obvious awkwardness. Her response then had been to blush harder and crack off a snide remark, but he didn’t mind at all.
The extravagant gathering of men and women smelled like spices and felt almost too warm for him, despite being u
Say Something (LightningXCaius)The old world was gone, the new one afresh and anew and it flashed before their eyes for a brief moment, an escaping sliver of what was to come. The ten of them stood before the fallen Bhunivelze, crystal shards and chunks embedded into his form, the robes tossed around him torn and tattered, an expression of pain and anguish permanently carved onto his features. To Lightning, it was fitting to see the once almighty god in shatters, after the entire journey they have been through, after his lies and threats their sacrifices, this is what was to be of them.Say Something (LightningXCaius) by kidsi5ter
The new Unseen Realm surrounded them, harsh winds of chaos whipping around their faces and tossing their clothing about. Light’s attention was not drawn to the god, however, for it was instead completely focused on the man who spoke with an almost toneless voice, accompanied by one of the many young girls who fell victim to Etro’s curse. Even now, she noticed, he stood strong and tall, ignoring the crumbli
LRFFXIIII couldn't resist, okay? I got the game and played some of it during my free time and I'm currently on Day Seven.LRFFXIII by MaraudingSeveritus
Right now, I'm a bit sad, disappointed, frustrated and angry.
I just managed to defeat Caius after three tries (holy genie, his attacks are like tantrums, I swear. I was promptly left with only one phoenix down while he took away seven hi-potions and the other phoenix down) BUT THE SCENE AFTER THE BATTLE--
I knew it was bound to happen. I knew he couldn't be saved, but god freaking damn it, I wanted to save him more than anyone else. "She is but a child. And a child needs to be looked after. Especially when she is doomed to stay in the Chaos." CAIUS, NO, KEEP YOUR DADDY INSTINCTS AT BAY I-- -falls down and weeps-
I'm not gonna lie. I legitimately cried tears of frustration but in the end I had to accept that his soul cannot be liberated.
I always knew there would be no happy ending for him and Lightning, but my heart still pleads for them t
LRFFXIII In-Game Screenshots + Stupid CommentsI managed to salvage all these screenshots I got using the Outerworld services from my Twitter. -lol-LRFFXIII In-Game Screenshots + Stupid Comments by MaraudingSeveritus
I'm going to post them over here just because I can. :L
And also to provide myself and some people some amusement.
Hello, Hope. You're a child again. Congrats on the eternal youth.
Hello, mini-Serah-lookalike that keeps appearing throughout the game. You're not allowed in this place.
"Here. Let me just flip my hair seductively--"
"Look at all these rose petals (minus the shoujo sparkles because admit it, I'm a bishoujo) surrounding my amazing physique. Bow down before the Saviour."
The things you have to bloody do as the Saviour just to obtain a stupid dress.
OH MY FRICK. SNOW, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO--!
OKAY, OKAY, I GET IT. THE FUN AND GAMES ARE OVER. CAN WE PLEASE SKIP THE HEART ACHE?! I CAN'T HANDLE H
On Caius BalladI've been thinking about this subject for a while - how to word it, how long it should be, how many reasons I can come up with - and finally decided to just take the plunge and find out what I can cough up. Life's gotten better, much less stressful, and I'm able to dream again about the things I want to do in life now that some more immediate crises have been taken care of. So, here I am, wasting a little time writing this up, not trying to change any minds or turn any worlds upside down (but if I do, hey, that's cool too) and relax a little before I go off to do some actual work.On Caius Ballad by GenesisArclite
Caius is different. Completely different. A lot of people say he's a purple Sephiroth, or that he's just like Kefka, or Kuja, or whatever. I disagree. He's unique in my eyes, unique within at least the majority of the FF games that I have seen, played, or read about. Vanille used to be my favorite character from the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, but come Lightning Returns, Caius has become my
LR: Thoughts on Caius x LightNow updated with new LR information. There are unmarked spoilers below. This was inspired by other, similar postings on Tumblr and such. This is also me trying to get my thoughts in order, and is mostly to try and show where I come from with this pairing, not so much "evidence" for it. It's to show where I kind of get the impression that, hey, this could actually work. and I'm bored and have no tumblr yet. Let's begin!LR: Thoughts on Caius x Light by GenesisArclite
1. Design: well, obviously. They were very likely designed to parallel each other, and darnit if they don't look pretty good together as a result. Let's face it, they look good together. Dark and light colors work very well when done right, and you don't get much more obvious than pink and purple, light and dark colors, male and female, icy determination and fiery passion.
think of the beautiful family they would make, seriously
2. I don't think Lightning holds hard fee
Dance to the DeathHeels clicking against the stone floor, pulse pounding in her head, the young warrior made her way down the corridor to the doors which held her fate. Columns of grey marble glowed in the moonlight that streamed in from the scattered skylights above her, casting eerie shadows around her. The corridor opened before her like a creature's gaping maw, its columns its teeth, threatening to devour her. Every instinct told her to turn and run, but she knew if she did, the guards would retrieve her and drag her back. So she pressed on.Dance to the Death by ReflectTheLight
Her white silken gown swished around her body as she moved, the loose fabric around her bust drawing together into a bodice decorated with delicate embroidery and beading before giving way to the skirt that brushed against her legs and the weapons she had secretly strapped to her legs. Gossamer fabric covered her shoulders before bunching above her elbows and falling to her wrists. It was a gown fit for a goddess, and within the hour, it would accompany her to t
