Riku - Take my all, for him by NanjoKoji Riku - Take my all, for him by NanjoKoji
I was always impressed by Riku giving up himself and giving in to Ansem to gain the strenght to return Roxas to Sora. Especially Riku, who took so much pride in himself, making this sacrifice for Sora, knowing in this moment that he can never go back - that's a major part why I love this pairing so much.
This part of the road was desperation to him. I hope to convey this in the photo.

Have my body. Have my mind. Have my coat. Take my time.
These I borrow. Borrow so far. Turn to dust. Fall apart.
Here I swear, forever is just a minute to me.

-
If it is for him,
Take everything I have.
All I have to offer is me.

Let me start off by saying that this shot is utterly amazing and has me blown away by all but one thing... (Sometimes I hate being such a stickler for details.) It would have been a 10/10 in my book if the key in his hand were actually his. Hope you'll settle for a 9/10 in my eye though.

I really hope you don't mind... last night I started drawing in paint, and I decided to try and re-create this photo. [link]
I know I should have asked permission, but... well, I dunno. I made sure to credit you, but if you want I'll take it down.

There's so much emotion in this it's breathtaking. I agree; Riku's sacrifice for Sora was incredible and it's one of the reasons I hold this pairing so high.

Really, really well done. I can see the desperation clearly.

The pose and the expression are perfect. He gives so much for Sora, its quite shocking that there are those that don't really get why people pair these two (on yes, I've come across people that don't get it and I kinda wanna bonk them) I absolutely adore you and Riku will forever be my favorite Kingdom Hearts character

Riku: I'll defeat you, evil Heartless!

*Riku swings his Keyblade three feet left of where the Heartless actually is*

Riku: Just hold still!

*Riku swings his Keyblade four feet right of where the Heartless actually is*

Riku: I'll strike you down! Just don't move!

*Riku swings his Keyblade right above the Heartles's head*

*the Heartless walks away*

Riku: Yes! I have vanquished the Heartless! Kairi, I think this calls for a kiss!

*Riku kisses Sora*
