When I first played Final Fantasy XIII, I thought of Hope as just a child and never even considered him as a love interest for Lightning… until the sequel when he aged into a handsome young man ♥ When I was approved for the fanlisting for their relationship, I decided to skin the site with two layouts – the first as partners in battle, and the second to feature adult!Hope & Lightning as partners in life

Version 2 Epilogue ~Reminiscence~ features a serene and dreamy design inspired from the Reminiscence -tracer of memories- novella that takes place after the final game. I was so happy that the novella brought closure to the story and basically confirmed this pairing was canon with this line: “May this woman, who was once a brilliant flash of light in that other world, chance upon hope – this was my wish.”

Due to the timeline of events in the game, adult!Hope and Lightning never meet so I worked my magic to correct this travesty and make it appear as if they are actually sitting together X3 This layout features my largest footer design to date because I couldn’t get enough of seeing these two looking so mature and perfect together ♥
