Domain Name

"Lightning. It flashes bright, then fades away. It can't protect; it only destroys."
- Lightning (FFXIII) was registered on February 14, 2012, and is named after the heroine from Final Fantasy XIII, Eclair Farron. After the death of her parents at a young age, she had to be strong for her younger sister so she threw away her name and became Lightning, a symbol of strength and independence.

It was always a dream of mine to own a Final Fantasy-related .nu domain name, and it was a no-brainer to go with Lightning ♪ She is a heroine I admire and respect, and I am proud to have her name represent my home on the web ♥
