Fandom: Kingdom Hearts
Pairing: Riku x Sora
Notes: This came from a strange idea lurking inside my brain. (I think it's the effect of Koutetsu Sangokushi episode 25, but...) I had this weird brainstorm as to the whole Riku/Sora situation. Riku was the true Keyblade master, but since he chose the darkness, he forfeits that and Sora gets the Keyblade instead. So why did Riku chose the darkness? And because I adore Riku and Sora, I was thinking what if Riku chose the darkness because of something else? If Riku becomes the Keyblade Master, then Sora will be automatically the antagonist, right? For checks and balances, someone would be the darkness, and I'm sure it won't be Kairi. So this whole thing was born, with Riku knowing that he was destined as the Keyblade Master and the hero and all that, but chose a different path because he didn't want Sora to be a Heartless. Hikage means "shade".
