This takes off from the ending of the new DLC | Requiem of the Goddess
What had I seen in my vision? I don't remember...
The darkness was brushing over me.
"I don't mind that I'm gone."
The familiar words began to echo as I fell into a sea of chaos that began to pull me down into a abyss. I was drowning but I didn't resist. I was being pulled into a sea of nothing. Pressure ripping it's way through me until I felt nothing just as it was around me. There was no meaning...no sound...no life...just darkness. Has it been hours? Days? Years? I began to see some form of light. The light kept coming closer.....so beautiful....It had to be heaven. I embraced the light but it was same as the darkness. No meaning...no sound...no life...just light.
"You change the future...you change the past." A voice said.
I remember Yeul saying that once when Noel and I was on our quest to find my sister...It seems ages ago now. But hearing this again is more haunting then it was back then. But this time, it wasn't Yeul who said it. The Goddess?
"You carried a great curse. A curse that didn't belong to you." The voice spoke again but I couldn't find myself to say anything nor could I see anyone...just light.
"The Seeress mind has been tainted for many of her life passings. Dying and reborn again. This is what caused Caius to go mad. Was this the Seeress plan? To live forever? But you....You and she are the same." More familiar words began to flow around me. I began to feel something but I wasn't sure what it was. I started to find words again but all that came out was "Valhalla" and I couldn't understand why I said it. But the Goddess or whom ever this being is, finished my sentence.
".....hall of those who died in combat, ruled over by the God Odin. Here is where you join masses of the dead known as various legendary heroes."
And before I could say or do anything. Flashes of beaming lights began to pound into my body. Was I being crystallized again?
"When prayers turn to promises...not even fate can stand in their way.
We held the light of hope in our hearts, and achieved the impossible.
Now we live on, to greet a new dawn."
Vanille and Fang's voices rush through the lights. My body began to be cocooned in something and in the distance I could hear a march....a march of people....soldiers? A army? The sound of the march kept getting louder and louder. And the scenery broke into a battle field....Valhalla. I was standing in the madness of thousands of soldiers fighting off monsters. And Noel was there fighting with them. Hope....Snow...Gadot....Lebreau and the whole NORA gang was there too...fighting.
"Vanille! Fang!" Hope cried out. Noel looks over to where I was standing. "Serah.....Goddess Etro?" Noel stumbled on his words and I couldn't make sense to what he was talking about. Goddess Etro?
"Goddess Etro!" Caius yelled. Soon as he said it, the battle stops. And all eyes was on me, grasping. I ignored Hope and Noel and focused on Caius's voice and searched for his face. He was standing in the middle of the battle field with Yeul at his side. Caius instantly welds his sword and without thinking I weld my sword and for a moment I gained some sense back and I realized I don't even remember having a sword. The blade had ancient writing engraved on it....it looked like it belong to a Goddess. And I looked back at Caius.....I could feel something different....Anger? Sadness? And I looked behind me. Vanille and Fang was standing like warriors and their armor made them look like Goddesses. There was no sign of fear on their faces and I wanted to say something but before I could Fang interupted me. "Its ok.....we're hehind you." She said seriously. And I took faith from that but I couldn't help but to wonder if this was real. And I looked back at Caius. His anger raging and Yeul was still standing beside him, never even looked like she moved a inch.....she seemed so motionless, so hollow. But in my heart....I knew she was twisted.
I was ready. I was ready to end this. And take back the future. Our future. Not even fate can stand in my way.....not anymore. And for a second....I couldn't tell if this was another vision but I saw my sister crystallized on some kind of throne.
......she was holding on to hope.
