When a party member is sad, Snow is as likely to hug them as Lightning is to give advice. cutscene near the end when he heals fellow party member Fang.
Her sister usually had excellent table manners — the sugar must already have overwhelmed her brain. Serah blushed, but made no attempt to stop eating the cake. Lightning glanced over the offending piece of tabloid filth and her blood began to boil. The magazine had somehow managed to get pictures of when she and Fang had gone to the movies a few months ago.
The pictures showed the two of them talking over coffee and sharing popcorn. However, the biggest picture showed Lightning leaning on Fang, one arm draped almost possessively around the taller woman's waist, their bodies side by side. Even now she could remember that moment, along with the frisson of heat that had run all the way down her side to pool deep and low in her belly. And the accompanying text was even worse. In a voice that left no doubt about her amusement, Serah summarised.
They had no right to barge into her life, and even less right to try and label whatever it was that she and Fang had. How could Serah enjoy this garbage? It would be just like her. She'd started to make increasingly obvious hints to Lightning suggesting that she make her move.
In Vanille's words, she wanted someone who could provide for and look after her troublesome big sister and Lightning was the only one who fit the bill. Vanille loved action movies.
It was at time like this, she missed the days when her word was law. Not that she missed the resentment that had built up between her and Serah when Lightning had tried to be the younger woman's mother and sister. You're also young and single. Is it really that surprising when the tabloids speculate about your love life? And is it really that surprising when they try pairing you up with almost everybody you spend any time with? He's not there yet, but it won't be long, and whoever he chooses in the future is going to be very lucky.
Lightning and Fang Sitting In A Tree Chapter 11, a final fantasy xiii fanfic | FanFiction
She did wonder sometimes — most recently after a drinking contest with Vanille — what it would take for Lightning to punish her and whether the older woman would have the guts to bend her over her knee. The last time Lightning had done that was when Serah had come back drunk from a party in high school. Neither of them had ever mentioned it again, and she had a feeling Lightning had wiped the whole incident from her memory.
He is an eligible widower with a heart of gold. Supposedly, you've already stolen him away from me. Then she gave Lightning her most innocent yet seductive look, something that left Lightning equal parts impressed and disturbed. I'm the innocent younger sister, reliant on you for everything and closer to you than anyone in the world.
The cake got better with every slice, and the rich, sweetness of the chocolate added a unique twist to the look of absolute horror on her sister's face.
Lightning could be so fun to tease. But she wasn't here just to tease the older woman. I mean, the stuff about you and Fang? She hated it when her sister got like this. There was no way out of this conversation now. You gave up so much for me when we were younger — gave up part of who you were — and I'm grateful, so grateful. I wouldn't be here if you hadn't fought so hard for both of us.
But isn't it time you were happy? The dark liquid had gone cold, but she couldn't bring herself to care. In all honesty, she'd been lost when Serah moved out. When they were younger and it was just the two of them, and she'd been working herself to the bone to make ends meet, she'd kept herself going by thinking of that far off day when Serah would be grown up and everything would be okay.
Now, Serah had moved in with the man she was going to marry and everything was fine. Snow was a good man: Sure, there were times when Lightning wanted to bash his head in, but that was true of almost everyone. So now after living for Serah for so long, she had to live for herself — only she wasn't sure she knew how.
It was enough to make her laugh and cry at the same time. She finally had the chance to live her own life, to go after what she wanted, but she wasn't sure she deserved that chance, let alone deserved the person she wanted. Anyone else would have lost an arm for that. You're smarter than that, Lightning, and a lot better too. Can you stop hitting me so I can explain?
Serah would see right through her. I can order them around and lead them, but that's not the same as spending time with them; that's not the same as loving them. I have maybe a dozen people I'd call friends and they didn't come easily. But neither of you will even think of letting anyone else come between you. It's no wonder you're so wound up.
The two of you should just get a room — you do have several at your house — and just —" "Finish that sentence and die. Do you think I don't notice you staring when you think no one is looking?
I never thought I'd see my big sister mooning over someone like a lovesick schoolgirl, but I guess I was wrong. It's actually kind of cute.
Sometimes you look like you want to strangle her, and sometimes you look like you want to do all sorts of wicked things to her. I also mope around the house whenever she's gone, and I always make sure to cook her favourite food when she comes back. But seriously, you need to tell Fang.
It's not fair on you or her. Get it out into the open. I almost ruined us Serah, and we're sisters. Fang doesn't have any reason to stay. If… if she moves out —" Whack. Of course she has a reason to stay — you're there. And you won't ruin everything. You might be blunt and silly and stubborn when it comes to things like this, but she's used to that — she's used to you.
She's the only one who can put up with your grouchiness except me. In fact, she thinks it's adorable. Why do you think she teases you so much?
Honestly, it's like watching a pair of first graders. I'm just waiting for you to start pushing each other and pulling each other's hair. She'd always assumed Fang was good at this sort of thing. But how many serious relationships had Fang been in since she and Vanille got back?
Maybe Fang wasn't any better at this than her. Maybe they were both bumbling around with no idea of what to do. When she thought about it, Fang never teased the others the way she teased her.
There was always amusement when she teased the others, but the jokes were always straightforward. With Lightning, there was always a hidden meaning to Fang's comments, a glint of something more in the other woman's eyes.
Not to mention Fang had started to mention how much she liked women in uniform. Damn it, she really was stupid. Heck, she's usually there with you. When you're tired, who looks after you? And when you want to talk about something — anything — whom do you talk to? So many times, she'd come back from work to find Fang waiting with a kind word, a teasing comment and dinner on the table. Other times, she'd come home, disgusted with herself for not keeping some of the new recruits out of harm's way, and Fang had dragged her out of the house for some sparring to help her cool down.
And then there were all the times she'd wandered through her house wondering what to do now that Serah had moved out, only to find Fang draped over the couch or digging through the fridge. The other woman belonged there with Lightning, looked perfect with one of Lightning's shirts on or one of her books opened on her lap. We've got a lot in common too, like sisters with rocks for brains. We all want what's best for you, and if you could maybe get around to sharing some of the money the tabloids would pay to cover your wedding then that would be thanks enough.
It was cold but bracing, which was what she needed. I guess… I needed to hear some of that. The younger woman snagged another slice of cake.
Are Fang and Vanille Gay? - Edugaytion
Little sisters have their place in the world too. I thought you were just here for me to spoil. Snow and I made our fair share of mistakes too. The thing is, it'll be worth it in the end.
Oerba Yun Fang
Is there anyone else you'd rather wake up to in the morning and come home to at night? I want some nieces to spoil. They'd be so cute. They could have your hair and Fang's eyes or maybe the other way around, and when Snow and I have kids, they could all be friends, and we could live next door to each other and —" Lightning was still trying to wrap her head around the idea of children.
They were lovable kids but with an eye for trouble. Lightning listened to it all with a faint smile on her lips.
She felt… lighter now that she'd finally made up her mind. It was only later, after they'd gone shopping — Serah did most of the shopping while Lightning did most of the carrying — that she realised something. She'd never gotten a chance to taste the cake. Serah had eaten all of it while they were talking. X X X Fang tucked her phone back into her pocket.
She'd asked — more like begged — Serah to put in a good word for her. She'd tried everything to get Lightning's attention short of declaring her undying love for the soldier on a giant billboard or ambushing her in bed.
Both options had their upsides, but she hadn't wanted to scare the other woman off. When it came to love, Lightning could be as skittish as a newborn chocobo. Instead of a proper message, Serah had sent back a single emoticon: Vanille had seen it and with wide eyes, the red head had ordered Fang to dress sexy, prepare a romantic, home cooked dinner complete with candles and music, and then dashed off to spend the night at Serah and Snow's house.
How on earth could all of that come from one smiley face? Sometimes she wondered if maybe Serah and Vanille were related. The pink haired woman looked deliciously rumpled, her uniform a tad untidy and her hair askew. A wave of satisfaction rippled through Fang as the other woman's eyes lingered on her before going to the table only to come back to her.I'm Afraid To Move - Fang x Lightning
According to tradition, she should have dragged the dead carcass of the scariest monster she could find to Lightning's family to prove her worth. But that wouldn't work, not here. Lumina lived in Nova Chrysalia, getting acquainted with people and earning a reputation as a trickster. When Vanille and Fang first awoke from crystal stasis, Lumina found them and witnessed the Order of Salvation taking them into their care.
After Fang departed for the Dead DunesLumina would frequent the lonely Vanille who was not allowed to leave the cathedral. Lumina showed Noel an Oracle Drive with a fabricated prophecy of Lightning almost destroying the world and him stopping her, leading him to become obsessed with the idea of fulfilling it. Lumina summons a Zaltys to halt Lightning.
Lightning first encounters Lumina in Yusnaan during the former's confrontation with Snow Villiers in his palace. After Snow grabs Lightning, Lumina appears in his place as an illusion and breaks Lightning's sword with magic. In reality, Lumina is on the chandelier above the ballroom, which she sets ablaze before vanishing.
The chandelier falls but Snow uses his l'Cie powers to halt it. As Lightning chases Snow through the palace, Lumina reappears to her in a Chaos infusion and claims Lightning is different from Bhunivelze's usual servants since she can see inside the Chaos.
Lumina summons a Zaltys to block Lightning's path and disappears, but Lightning defeats it. After Lightning retreats to the Ark Lumina returns to the area, amused by Lightning's hopes of saving Snow and the rest of Nova Chrysalia's people.
Lumina sitting on a fabricated Etro's throne. Between Lightning's missions and being brought to the Ark at the end of each dayLumina regularly pulls her into a dark parody of the Ark inside Lightning's subconscious to talk with her. Lumina explains it to be an ideal place for private conversations she does not want Hope, and by extension Bhunivelze, to overhear. During one such conversation, Lightning learns Lumina is tied to Serah.
Lumina uses these moments to plant seeds of suspicion into Lightning regarding Bhunivelze's true agenda. In Luxerion, Lumina watches Lightning's quest to rout the Children of Etroand divulges the reason Noel wants to kill her. Once Noel is freed from his burden and his soul is saved, Lumina reveals the Oracle Drive was altered and is surprised Noel had rejected the prophecy. Lightning meets Lumina when visiting Vanille, who shows Lightning the concentration of lost souls within God's Sanctum beneath the cathedral.
Lumina terms them the "wind of sorrow", commenting the Order seeks the save the dead from their anguish by offering them oblivion and needs Vanille to call them to her. Lumina says the "wind" has been building for years and would spell the end of both Nova Chrysalia and any future world were it to escape.
Lumina with Snow and Lightning. When Lightning returns to Yusnaan and sets out to infiltrate Snow's palace, Lumina tells her about his guilt and isolation, and sets a Cyclops on Lightning. When the two meet again after Lightning defeats Snow in his Cie'th state, Lumina speculates about his motives and advises Lightning to kill him and fulfill his wish.
Lightning instead brings Snow around and revives his hope for the future. She reveals she was monitoring them until they found the clavis so she could lead the Secutors to them. Lumina says the Secutors are taking the clavis to Luxerion where, on the world's final day Vanille will sacrifice herself in the Soulsonga ritual to obliterate the souls of the dead, including Serah's.
