Lux Aeterna
A Table of Contents


Duo Corda, Unum Animam: Memoriis

Before Rhy?Din came Lucis and with it, Noctis and Claire?s story began. A review of the years leading up to the catalyst that brought Claire (and subsequently Noctis) to Rhy?Din, this story covers their meeting, their differences, and eventually their love story. Timeline: Approximately Early 2010-December 2012.

Where There Is Love, There Is Pain

Planning a wedding should be a joyous occasion, right? Beginning in late January of 2013, Ubi Amor, Ibi Dolor (Where There Is Love, There Is Pain) details a wedding dress shopping trip gone awry. It is the end of one chapter in Noctis and Claire?s lives, and most definitely the beginning of another. Timeline: Late January 2013-Mid February 2013.

Embracing dreams. Zack?s story.

After being adopted by Darkmere Alcar, Zack Alcar endures intense training with some help from friends and family in Nosgoth as well as Rhy?Din. Mastering the elements among other skills is no small task and as he learns about others, Zack learns more about himself as he too grows. Timeline: April 2013

With Your Voice In My Head

A chance trip home rekindles Claire?s connection with her Eidolon guardian Odin. A guiding influence through the good and the bad (mostly the bad), Odin tries his best to keep Claire on the straight and narrow during her first months in Rhy?Din. These are her conversations with him. Timeline: April 2013-December 2013

Capax Infiniti

After Noctis arrives in Rhy?Din, all hell breaks loose and Claire?s already unstable life is turned upside down. The pair take their leave from the city, holing up at a beach house outside of Rhy?Din City. This one shot marks a turning point for Claire, Noctis, and even Doom the Dog. Timeline: June 2013


Claire?s ever precarious relationship with her sister, Serah, is further exacerbated by Claire?s distance. A Hail Mary pass in the form of a hastily sent present serves as a white flag. The communication that comes after that, well, that?s a little more complicated. Timeline: July 2013

Sublimation: The Moon?s Shadow

The space-time continuum is thrown for a loop when everything goes out of whack in Rhy?Din. Claire and her best friend Zack get a brief glimpse into a life that could have been. If only things were different. Timeline: September 2013

Sublimation: Splintered Sky

As if getting a look at the life that could have been wasn?t bad enough, Zack and Claire are faced with a complicated issue when two of their children from another time show up in this Rhy?Din. Jade Rose and Gabriel Zackary carve their own paths in the new realm while simultaneously trying to find their way home. Timeline: September 2013-November 2013

The Storm?s Edge

Tense relations between Claire and everyone?s favorite pirate Diritas Ashin finally come to a boil with an intense meeting that ends with Claire taking Diritas?s life. The posts that follow detail the aftermath of the pirate?s demise. Timeline: October 2013

But Think of the Children ((The Dragon?s Gate Orphanage))

Shadow the elf and baron of Dragon?s Gate comes to Claire (and others) about how they can better serve the homeless children of the city. The result is tucked into a back corner of the Dragon?s Gate district in a remodeled estate. Timeline: October 2013-December 2013

Making Chrissmas

Thanks to her time in Rhy?Din, Claire experiences Christmas for the first time as well as all the fun that goes with it. From decorations to gift giving, all were welcome to contribute to the holiday cheer. Timeline: December 2013

From The Depths of Dreams

A nefarious influence infiltrates Claire?s subconscious, leading to nightmares and lucid daydreams that leave her in psychological shambles. From innocuous warnings to death and destruction, each night that passes sends her further and further down the rabbit hole. Timeline: December 1st, 2013-February 10th, 2014

From Heart to Paper

Serah struggles with her mortality and impending death and decides to put her thoughts to paper in hopes of leaving some small part of her behind for those she cares about. Spanning several months, her journal details all the highs and lows of a roller coaster like that. Timeline: December 2013-March 2014

No Rest for the Wicked

Sister Mine

Serah finally finds out just how fragile Claire?s mental stability is when the swordmage Arthour seeks her out for a rather difficult conversation. As if the younger Farron didn?t have enough on her plate, how will she react knowing that Claire seems to think she?s dead? Timeline: Early February 2014

A New Arrival

Amidst all of the chaos, Zack and his fiancee Raven have a little bit to celebrate and share that with their friends and family. Timeline: Mid February 2014

Brushed From the Palm of a God

Claire?s abrupt disappearance from Rhy?Din has all the markings of previous departures and she leaves many wondering just where she ran off to. The answer lies within a retelling of her time back upon Nova Chrysallia in its final days and a transformation that sticks with her even once she makes the difficult decision to return to Rhy?Din. Timeline: February 2014


Raven Ekia is drawn away from her family in Nosgoth by an irresistible force hell bent on getting their hands on her daughter, Adelaide. Will help come in time or will Raven be lost to the mist? Timeline: March 2014

Sublimation:Tabula Rasa :: Lila?s Journal

Another timeline, another choice, another child. Lila K. Farron-D?Artainian finds her way to this Rhy?Din and has quite a bit less luck in finding her place than Jade or Gabe did. Grappling with abandonment, anger, and substance abuse, her journal serves as an outlet for her frustrations in her brief time in Rhy?Din. Timeline: October 2013-May 2014

Time Waits For No One

Time ticks by in leaps and lulls for Serah as the shadow of death continues to loom over her at every turn. A near death experience makes it even more real and her recovery afterwards provides a fresh perspective for the young woman. Timeline: March 2014-July 2014

The Forget-Me-Nots

Lila?s meteoric rise to emerald ranking in the dueling venues? Outback isn?t without its bumps in the road. Love, loss, and unfortunate decision making ultimately spell doom for the violet haired time rift child. Timeline: April 2014-May 2014

The Gauntlet

Jade Alcar and Maximus Shimmer-Scale work together toward improving one another?s fighting skills. Little do they know that they?ll be brought together (and pulled apart) by far more powerful forces than they ever realized when getting into this. Timeline: April 2014-In Progress

Caelum Enterprises, Team Dirty and the Farron/Caelum family releases a response to the death of Lila Farron. Timeline: May 2014

Playing With Fire

Claire seeks out counsel from Arthour Chazore-Silverblood in regards to the threat that is Scion. When Serah is threatened through her dealings with Diritas, Claire has no choice but to address Scion head on. Timeline: July 2014

In Love And War

The Royals of Lucis find out that Claire and Noctis are expecting and place demands on the couple that tests their relationship as well as their loyalty to the kingdom. With war on the horizon, can Lucis afford a second front? Timeline: July 2014-In Progress

Nosgoth Chronicles: Darkness Falls. The Sun Still Rises.

After Nosgoth is ripped away from the other Alliance realms, the King of Nosgoth is left reeling from the magical impact taken as he shields his people from the catastrophe. A cloak of darkness settles on Nosgoth and not even Darkmere?s family can rouse him from the depths of his depression. A breath of fresh air arrives from the Southern Coast, but will it be enough to return Nosgoth to what it once was? Timeline: August 2014-In Progress

Tasting Temptation

Serah finds her own way to play with fire through a liaison with her bodyguard Sven, hired on by none other than Serah?s sister, Claire. What oh what would the boss think? Timeline: September 2014


Claire?s reign in the Tower of Earth finally proves beneficial when things go awry and the creatures of her element come to her aid. As she struggles with the strain of pregnancy and balancing that with her self-imposed commitments, she also has to come to terms with the fact that it isn?t just about her anymore. Timeline: September 2014-January 2015

Sun Eater

Hope, the woman formerly known as Clarice Queen, finds she has an affinity for rare works of art. Unfortunately for her, they?re not exactly free for the taking. Timeline: October 2014


The Tower of Earth welcomes an unexpected gift from an even more unexpected giver. Kruger leaves a little something for the Keeper of Earth and her unborn children as well as a note denying any culpability. Timeline: October 2014

Press Statement: Dragon?s Gate Orphanage
