Lightning gives Noel the task of finding Serah and bringing to her to Valhalla. Traveling to Serah's time, Noel sets out with her to find Lightning, repair the timeline and change his future at any cost, even erasing himself from existence.
Now, as Snow's concerns surface, Lightning is there to reinforce his previous optimism. This dandelion scene on Gran Pulse is really touching and significant. It shows the vulnerability of both heroes and how they emotionally connect to find support. As a Pairing I adore this pairing!
It's the classic Opposites Attract dynamic. In pairings of opposites, the characters always clash in way that are funny, passionate, or all of the above. My reasons for liking this pair: A relationship is more notable when you earn it through growth and appreciation. Lightning does not look like a little kid sorry, Serah! It's a fun and complimentary pairing that's sure to bring laughs. I recognize that this shipping is a creation of fandom, and only popular with a small portion of fans too.
This is because of the Serah Factor. Snow x Serah is completely canon. Snow loves her loyally and intensely. With the dedication he shows in the main storyline, it's hard to imagine Snow with anyone.
So for SnowxLight to work in fanfiction, rp communites, etc, fans need to properly and creatively address the Serah issue. But for the most part, I admit it is not the most probable pairing.
