what if… this is all that Kingdom Hearts is? Sora’s imagination and cute little dolls? That he’s stuck in his room with these little plushies and he makes his own adventures from all the Disney movies he’s watched and the dreams he’s had. Imagine that.
Why would you even-?! I mean-! Just-!
Are you Satan? ;A;
[[ I’m imagining Sora, the kid stuck inside because he’s slowly dying of cancer. His family moved to give him a better climate and to pretty much just live what he has left of his life out near the sea. Sora hears the ocean, the waves as the lap against the sand, the gulls in the sky. With his window cracked he feels the heat and the outside. He hears the other children play- children he’ll never get to meet because he’s stuck inside all day. None of his old friends have kept in touch and his Mom and Dad work all day to keep up with the medical bills.
Sora hears his Mom and Dad fight sometimes- over money, over life, even over him. And he just can’t take it because deep down he truly thinks this is all his fault. So he’s a good kid, never asking for much.
He entertains himself. He starts telling himself stories, combing the Disney movies he’s watched a thousand times over with characters from his video games. Then he invents his own characters. Ideas pop into his mind, designs for enemies and weapons called key blades.
And for the first time in a very long time, Sora is happy.
This continues for a couple of months, the story progressing. He’s written it all down simply because he likes to look back at it. Notebook after notebook is filled.
Characters go through hardship, darkness, misery and despair. But there’s also happiness, friendship and love.
And one day, he finishes the story. Sora smiles, amazed and at peace with what he has created. Later that evening, he slips away surrounded by the plushies he’s sewn, sketches of characters and notebooks filled with his adventures.
A few years pass. His parents have had their ups and downs after his death but have managed to stick together to preserve their Sora’s legacy.
The year is 2002.
Sora awakens on Destiny Island ready to begin an adventure to save the world. And you are right besides him, clutching your PS2 controller in hand. ]]
//THAT WAS REALLY NOT OKAY. EVEN THE ENDING. THAT WAS NOT OKAY.
