Lightning vs. Caius

:bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink::bulletblack::bulletpurple::bulletpink:

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.

Quick note: whoever posted the first two comments on this blog, they were devoured by dA and never appeared. Which makes me sad, because I'm really curious to see what they were...

The Final Fantasy XIII Reminiscence novella briefly includes scenes of Lightning and a brief scene of Caius near the end, and plenty of discussion about both throughout. In the end, it's made obvious that Caius still exists and that everyone inevitably sees him again at the end of their lives (like Charon and the river Styx from Greek mythology). Lightning, then, will eventually see him again, too, I suppose.

What do you think of the novella and how it handled these two, and what do you think of that implication, however extremely slight and possibly altogether imagined, it may be?

Update: And here's a link to a pair of screenshots featuring this lovely couple these two in their dashing new high-resolution Lightning Returns models: Here at Kuja9001's tumblr blog

Caius and Lightning. Male and female. Darkness and light. Passion and calm. Fire and ice. Night and day. Earth and sky.
