And when it’s time for her to lose, she’s all right with it; in fact, she willingly gives up just so she can become an idealized form of herself, and during her slumber can keep an idealized version of Serah alive for all eternity, rather than a REAL Serah with her own aspirations and opinions. She doesn’t want to save the world. She wants to preserve her own -- to live in a created space where she’s free to embrace her desires without a single thought to challenge her.
Lightning only wants one thing: her final fantasy. And she gets it.
…You know what? I think I was wrong. Yeah. I’m totally wrong here. Sorry, but I guess this entire miniseries has been invalidated -- proven wrong by my own hand. It’s shameful, I know, but I guess I should admit to it sooner rather than later. Lightning, sorry about all this. You’re no villain.
And so ends part two. Hope you check back next time -- because even with Lightning Returns still a ways off, I think there’s enough evidence to prove myself once and for all, and come to the ultimate conclusion.
Tune in next time. I’m gonna bring this fight to an end.

About Voltechone of us since 10:40 PM on 02.06.2012
Long-time gamer, aspiring writer, and frequent bearer of an afro. As an eternal optimist, I like to both look on the bright side of things and see the better parts of games; as a result, I love a game with a good story and awesome characters...and anything that lets me punch the heresy out of my enemies.
I'm a big fan of Atlus' games, and I've enjoyed my fair share of fighters and RPGs. Just...please, keep Final Fantasy XIII out of my sight. It never ends well for anyone involved.
You can check out some of my game musinga/stories/random stuff at my other blog, Cross-Up. I've also got a TV Tropes thingamajig, and a web serial novel, too. Maybe my stuff here and there will be the start of things to come. Hopefully good things, but things all the same.
