Hey all! Long time no see, huh? Don't worry, some actual updates are coming! But until then, here is a three-shot request from Shinrai Atsune about three Kingdom Hearts genderbend pairings! First is FemSoraXRiku. I own nothing! Enjoy!
The sun shone brightly upon the Destiny Islands, something one girl thought she'd never see again. It was still so hard to believe; all the worlds she'd seen, all the new friends she'd made. There were days when she still thought it was all just a dream, that she'd wake up one day back in her bedroom about to take off on the raft with her friends.
Sora sat upon the paopu tree, her waist-length, slightly spiked brown hair blowing behind her thanks to the refreshing tropical breeze. A smile spread across her face as she watched the waves of the sea.
It had been a few days since their battle with Xemnas and the fall of Organization XIII, but Sora still couldn't find it in herself to hang up her magical clothes just yet. They were very detailed, colored navy blue and black with small touches of red, yellow and white. The clothes themselves consisted of a v-neck sleeveless shirt, a short-sleeved hoodie, fingerless gloves, large shoes, knee-high stockings and short shorts with two long pieces of fabric hanging down her hips with large pockets attached.
These magical clothes reminded her so much of all the great places she'd seen, all the amazing friends she'd made and best of all, reuniting with Riku and Kairi after a year.
"How did I just know you'd be out here, Sora?" A voice spoke from behind her. The brunette girl turned around, smiling at the sight of one of her childhood friends walking towards her across the wooden bridge.
"Riku!" She exclaimed, waving the silver-haired teen over. Sora had no idea why, but ever since she witnessed him return to his true form, she started feeling strange whenever he was around.
He had changed so much since the last time she saw him. He gained more muscle, he had grown taller and his hair had grown so much longer. But, it wasn't just his appearance that had changed. Sora had also noticed that he wasn't as cocky as he used to be.
She was so lost in thought, Sora didn't even notice she had been staring at him until Riku playfully poked her forehead.
"Geez, do I have something on my face or something?" Riku laughed, jumping up onto the paopu tree with her. "What's with the staring?"
"Sorry, I didn't mean to stare." A pink blush appeared on her cheeks. "It's just, I still can't believe that this is all real. Being back on the islands with you and Kairi, I keep thinking that this'll all turn out to be a dream and I'll wake up on the Gummi ship with Donald and Goofy." Sora laughed.
"Yeah, it all does seem like one big crazy dream. But it wasn't." Riku sighed as he turned to face her. "Sora, I'm sorry."
The brunette looked up at him in confusion. "For what?" She asked.
"For everything." Riku relied remorsefully. "For destroying the islands, for treating you like a traitor, for letting Ansem take control-"
"Riku! Stop it!" Sora interrupted, jumping off the tree branch to stand in front of him. She placed her hands on his cheeks and looked straight into his eyes. "You don't need to apologize for that, I get it, it was a scary time for all of us. You were just trying to help Kairi in the only way you knew how."
"Sora.." Riku whispered in a hushed, surprised voice.
"You don't need to apologize for anything you did back then, Riku." Sora said. Her serious tone disappeared and shifted to a more playful tone. "Except for maybe not telling me where you were all that time!" She laughed.
"Like I told you before, I didn't want to be found. I couldn't let anyone see me like that, as a monster." Riku sighed. Especially you.
Sora just shook her head and kept smiling. "I could never see you as a monster, to me, you'll always be Riku no matter what."
After listening to her words, Riku managed a small smile and gently removed her hands from his cheeks. "Thank you, Sora. How do you always know exactly what to say?"
"Guess it's just skill." Sora laughed with a shrug.
A few moments of silence passed between the pair until Sora's eyes rested on the star-shaped fruit resting in the tree. Her eyes shifted back towards Riku as a tiny blush dusted her cheeks. Somehow, she found she couldn't help herself as she climbed the tree and gently picked one of the fruits.
Riku watched her curiously as she took a seat beside him back on the trunk and looked down at the star-shaped fruit.
Riku watched her curiously while she took a seat beside him back on the trunk of the tree and looked down at the star-shaped fruit.
"Sora? What are you doing with a paopu fruit?" The silver-haired teen asked, raising an eyebrow.
"'If two people share one, their destines become intertwined. They remain a part of each other's lives no matter what.' That's what you told me back then, remember?" Sora asked as she looked up into his blue-green eyes.
Riku blushed as he turned his head away from her in an attempt to hide his red face. "Yes, of course I remember." He replied. "Why do you ask?"
"Why did you give me that paopu fruit that day? And, I already knew the legend, so why did you repeat it to me?" Sora asked.
Riku took a deep breath. He couldn't lie to her, he had to tell her, even if there was a chance he could get hurt from it. "Because... Because I was going to ask you to share it with me. But after I gave it to you, I chickened out at the last minute and just laughed it off."
Sora silently gasped in surprise, she definitely hadn't been expecting that kind of response. "Riku?... You-" she stammered as her blush increased.
"Yeah, I had a huge crush on you." Admitted Riku. "Still do, I guess."
"Why didn't you tell me?" Sora questioned, her heart beating loudly in her chest.
"It's stupid, but I was scared." The silverette replied. "I was worried you would reject me, that I would mess up the friendship between you, me and Kairi-"
Just then, Riku was interrupted by Sora grabbing his broad shoulders and kissing him directly on the lips. This caused Riku to gasp in surprise silently against her lips.
Just as quickly as it happened, Sora pulled away. "I-I'm sorry-" She stammered, fearing she'd just made a huge mistake.
"Don't be." Riku interrupted as he leaned in and captured her lips in a second kiss. It didn't take long for Sora to get over the shock as she closed her eyes and kissed him back. She set the star-shaped fruit down behind her as she wrapped her arms around his neck. Riku responded by wrapping his own arms around her waist and pulling her closer. In that moment, neither one of them felt happier or more complete.
Before long, they pulled back as their kiss ended, both of them panting for much-needed air.
"Woah." Riku whispered, hardly believing what had just happened. He had just kissed the girl of his dreams.
"So, uh. In case it wasn't obvious; I had a crush on you too, and I still do." Said Sora, nervously fiddling with her fingers. "If you had asked me to share the fruit with you that day, I honestly would have accepted."
Riku appeared stunned at her response, but then smiled and released a small laugh. "Man, I'm an idiot. I should have told you how I felt back then. Maybe things would have been different." He said. "Maybe I wouldn't have pushed you away like I did."
"Maybe they would have been, but that's in the past. All that matters is that we're home." Sora replied, placing her hand on his. "And that we're together."
Riku nodded his head as his eyes rested on the fruit. Slowly, he picked it up and held it in between himself and Sora. The last rays of sunlight hit the fruit perfectly, allowing the spots of moisture to sparkle off its surface.
"So, I'm sorry this is so late." Riku apologized, handing the paopu fruit to the brunette before him. "Sora, will you share a paopu fruit with me?"
Sora eagerly nodded her head. "I thought you'd never ask."
Without another word, Riku ripped the star-shaped fruit in half and handed one piece to Sora. As the two of them shared the sweet, succulent fruit, the sun began to set behind them, creating a beautiful, romantic setting.
It didn't take long for Sora and Riku to finish their shares of the fruit. Once the paopu was gone, they embraced and once again connected their lips in another passionate kiss. After all this time, they were finally connected. Now, they would remain a part of each other's lives no matter what. And both Sora and Riku couldn't be happier.
