GRAN PULSE IS NOW TAKING APPLICATIONS!
Thanks to the Historia Crux being damaged new universes have also opened up to completely different worlds. Gates opened and people who could find their way through or had wished hard enough could find their way here to Gran Pulse living in a new place where they could escape their old lives or were forced to escape it by others. Many have chosen to live in Academia and others who prefer the quiet life live out near New Bodhum or even farther out to the ruins so that they may live quietly in peace.
This panfandom uses the base of FFXIII-2's town but without the story. There would be no spoilers for those who want to play it. Everyone lives in 400AF
