About Time, a final fantasy xiii-2 fanfic | FanFiction
It would be nice to see one successful relationship in the FF13 series. Maybe we' ll find out why Caius and Yeul never repopulated AF. The problem is that FFXIII-2 is, in a surprising and sad sense, a very . The closer you look at the story of Noel, Caius, and Yeul in relation to. In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Caius continues to serve as Yeul's Guardian, and he faces . Caius challenges Etro's protector Lightning to battle.
Refusing to succeed him that way, Noel tells Caius about his plan of going on a journey with Yeul to find other people so she will not be lonely anymore, but Caius says it is a futile dream. After revealing his death and Etro's demise are the only way Yeul can be saved, Noel's continued refusal to kill him drives Caius to force Noel to fight.Noel, Yeul, and Caius are [:Shattered:]
Defeating Noel, Caius sees the boy is not strong enough kill him as he is now, and so departs for Valhalla after telling Noel that Yeul's feelings over his actions mean nothing to him, as his only goal is that she will be free upon Etro's death. Leaving Yeul's side as her Guardian, Caius uses the power he wields over chaos to find his way to Valhalla, the middle world between life and death where Etro resides, with the intent to kill her.
Caius believes that Etro's death would free Yeul from her cycle of endless reincarnation. Back in the Dying World Yeul dies and passes on to Valhalla.
Caius rests her lifeless body in the Sea of Chaos along Valhalla's shore and she disperses into light. He sees Yeul's implanted vision of the crystallized Cocoon crashing into Gran Pulse and a glimpse of Etro's shrine, and summons an army of Rift Beasts to enact his war on Etro.
Caius faces off against Lightning. Caius challenges Etro's protector Lightning to battle. As she and Caius meet face-to-face he grabs her gunblade and aims it at his Heart of Chaos, which begins to glow.
When Lightning backs away in shock, Caius transforms into Chaos Bahamut and sends Lightning flying over Valhalla as they continue their duel.
Noel falls from the sky through Etro's gatethe portal to Valhalla, the goddess having answered his prayer to gain the power of chaos to follow Caius. Lightning saves Noel as Caius pursues the two in the form of Chaos Bahamut and engages her in an aerial dogfight. Lightning defeats him, but he reappears and summons a meteorite above the Temple of the Goddess. Assuming Lightning is dead and will not interfere, Caius uses his knowledge of foresight over the ages to create a series of paradoxes to shape the timeline and create the right circumstances to execute his plan to force Etro's gate to open so the chaos of Valhalla can enter Gran Pulse and destroy the timeline.
As explained in Final Fantasy XIII-2 Ultimania Omega, even though Caius cannot time travel, once his preparations are complete the place and time of his plan will become so badly affected by the chaos he will be able to enter there from Valhalla. Caius contacts Alyssa in a dream and has her give a booby-trapped artefact to Noel and Serah. When the two use the artefact to open a Time Gate, they are separated in the Historia Crux and end up somewhere within the Void Beyondan unstable world of chaos that exists in-between the Time Gates.
Noel and Serah are ambushed by a future incarnation of Caius who first defeats Noel and places him in a dream world. Stating he is impressed by Serah's strength, Caius explains Etro's interference with the events of the Day of Ragnarok caused a time distortion that cut Yeul's lives short, along with his intent to kill Etro, before impaling Serah and sending her to a dream world of her own.
Serah and Noel escape their respective dream worlds and pursue Caius to Academia AF, the time of the prophecy when Caius plans to destroy both the old and new Cocoons so the countless extinguished lives would force Etro's gate wide open and let the chaos of Valhalla seep into the mortal realm.
As Academia is infected with chaos Caius is able to arrive there from Valhalla. Serah and Noel chase after Caius into the sky on an airship and defeat him as Chaos Bahamut. Caius returns to human form and admits he is impressed by Serah's determination to change the future even if it means her death due to being a seeress like Yeul.
Caius remarks Noel would have made a worthy Guardian, and says everything he ever did was for Yeul. Believing the Yeuls being born only to die young is meaningless and cruel, Caius reaffirms he will stop at nothing to free them, even if reality itself must be destroyed to achieve it. He transforms into Chaos Bahamut and flies into a wormhole that opens in the sky.
Caius engages Noel in battle. Noel and Serah follow Caius into the wormhole and emerge in Valhalla where Caius confronts them on the beach. Noel attempts to convince Caius that Yeul willed to be reborn to see him again, but Caius refuses to listen. He launches a ball of fire at Noel and Serah sending them falling into a bottomless abyss beneath Valhalla's waves of chaos. The two are saved by Lightning, who sends them to the battlefield where the two defeat Jet Bahamut, along with his supporters, Garnet Bahamut and Amber Bahamut.
Having lost the final battle, a weakened Caius returns to human form. He tells Noel that if it is his fault Yeul keeps being reborn, he must be killed for her sake. He claims he had killed Lightning, and says that since time does not flow in Valhalla as it should, the "things that shall happen" in their future have "already been decided" in his past, and he knows how their encounter will end.
Caius provokes Noel by attacking Serah. Noel disarms Caius and lunges at him with his sword, but stops at the last second.
Caius seizes Noel's blade and forces it through his chest to destroy the Heart of Chaos, then collapses and fades away.

After foreseeing her own death during the Cie'th outbreak in Academia, Yeul ventures there.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Fragments After reveals that her father died before she was born, and her mother was in confinement during childbirth. Noel's grandmother explains to him Yeul lives away from people so they would not be tempted to use her power of foresight for evil, and shows how Noel had been protective of Yeul since he was three years old, and that he initially hated Caius when he arrived in his village.
Noel would become an apprentice Guardian training under Caius and they protected Yeul together, but Noel was unaware she would die soon. Noel wants to take Yeul on a journey to find other people in the world, but Caius reprimands Noel for considering such folly. Caius claims the only way to save Yeul is to kill Etro, the goddess of death, and let the chaos of Valhalla consume the mortal realm and transform it into a timeless world without a future or past, similar to Valhalla itself.

In the year AF Serah and Noel encounter a Ruby of Grief that contains the living conscience of the ancient Yeul who implores the two to destroy Ugallu. By doing so, Yeul's memory finds peace and vanishes, ending the paradox.
