Well, what do you think? Is Riku a bit too stern? Too kind? Too much of any sort of thing? Let me know here!

Anon's fine, IP logging's off, but all comments are screened. You've been warned~
limitless_land: (★ There's nothing I can do)
Hey. Sorry, but I'm unable to answer right now. Leave a message and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

[ Voicemail | Text | Video | etc. ]

limitless_land: (Faceplant ★ I will keep for me)
['sup Vatheon. You know how miracles generally happen about this time of year? Well, another just so happens to be happening right now, brought to you live by a sneaky little kitten who ninja'd his way out of the second story window and into a familiar forest. Well, at the edge of the wooded area, anyway. Just behind a bench, too.

At first all that's seen is a black glove, a finger in it twitching slightly as the first few signs of awareness before the hand clenches into a fist. The kitten mewls, white face nudging the hand gengerly. Who cares if it's damp, he missed his pet.

There's a bit of a sputtering cough, like some of the water dripped down his throat, as he wakes up, beginning to sit up. The silver hair and black cloth should be telltale signs of who it is as the Turkish Angora sits there, all pleased and proud. Yet something is different about the familiar figure, something off. To the outsider, he probably just looks disoriented and confused. The outsider has the latter part correct, at least. The other, however, is shock.]

How-? [His own jaw dropped. Riku remembers, vaguely at first, as pieces come back bit by bit. It's surprising, really, to suddenly awaken here after such a bright light, sensing Sora vaguely begin to run toward him as he lay on the ground... to a kitten he would be mowed over by an old friend if he didn't recognize.]

Kiryu? [A beat.] If you're here, then that means... [His face points at the camera...and before he can say anything embarrassing, his hand covers the SFC and it shuts off-

...Was that a Christmas bow tied to his hair and blindfold?

...That was a Christmas bow tied to his hair and blindfold. Har har, powers that be. Har. Har.]
limitless_land: (DtD ✰ Angels and Demons)
[There were many things that Riku had come to expect about life in an undersea bubble. Curses was one of those things. However, what he hadn't expected was one day to have a kitten pounce on his head and claim his hair as a pillow. It takes a few moments, but he sleepily pulls the cat off his head and sits up to realize one thing in particular: ...Everything seems taller. Why does everything seem taller?

That's when he gets a look in the mirror and is taken aback.]

[Today was just full of surprises, it seems. At least he seems to remember being taller...

But he also hadn't expected the SFC to be on, either. It was almost as though the little ball of white fluff had wanted everyone to say 'Look, my pet is younger! Don't his pants look ridiculous?'

Riku mutters under his breath, reaching for it and shutting it off with a rather annoyed look on his face. The cat, however, looks rather smug.

Five minutes later the feed clicks back on, and the cat has seemed fit to perch itself right next to the SFC - if the swishing of a tail over the screen occasionally was any indication. Darn feline...]

How many were unaffected by this latest curse? Or if you have, do you at least have your memories?

limitless_land: (Swear ★ You'll be the death of me)
[Riku is silent for a long while before he speaks, giving an inaudible sigh as he attempts to control his temper. ...With what recently occurred, it is not an easy task.]

So I was finally able to leave that island, now clear of that ominous fog. I'm... sorry, for what happened, if any of you came across me while I was in that state. Especially since I promised myself and a good friend long ago...

[His voice trails, and he reaches up to remove the blindfold he's wearing. ...There is pain, like he saw this all once before, in those sea-green eyes.]

I won't pretend to know what happened to myself and many others up there, but... I do know one thing: As a member of the Defense Force, I should have done better in protecting all of you and controlling myself, and in this... I failed. My heart was weak because I was alone. If I hurt anyone in that state, I-

[And then all that apologetic nature drops from the face of the bubble to turn into pure outrage. This is something rather too close to home, and since he did just introduce himself as a member of the defense force... Doesn't he have the right to be angry? He feels that he does, and with all that's happened to him... this was all just a kick in the teeth he didn't need.]

I will never forgive those pulling our strings from behind the scenes. My heart's been tampered with enough as it is! I'm sick of it being some sort of play thing for others!

[Just the thought of almost hurting another person he's even vaguely close to...]

limitless_land: (Cosplay ✰ I'm waiting to be)
Halloween... That time of year already, huh?

[His voice seems to hitch for a brief moment, but otherwise he doesn't really hint at anything else.]

How many of you celebrate it back in your own worlds?

[Locked to Aqua, Demyx, Kairi, Lea]

A lot of those from our Worlds have left recently. I just wanted to say- [He swallows hard.]

If I disappear next, there's a journal in my room. In it are reports on all that's happened both at home and here. Kairi, Aqua... You both especially deserve to know. As does Sora...


[Locked to Jacob, Mami]

Thanks for helping me to see the Light.
limitless_land: (Annoyed ★ The Darkness behind)

[...A feed during the attack? Seriously? There's only a brief glimpse of gold eyes beneath a hood before the SFC is tilted so only one of the kraken's tentacles can be seen. It takes five seconds before a deep, almost blank voice filters through the darkness.]

What do you do when you've been lost to despair. [A pause as disks of light(?) are tossed at it from behind the speaker.] What is it that you do when you lose sight of the hope you'd kept alive until now and realize that you don't have what it takes to protect others by your own power?

[He's silent for a long while, seemingly focused on dodging the retaliatory actions of the attacked appendage... until a black hand suddenly shoots electric shocks of the same white and pale blue energy at a now writhing mass of flesh.]

Tell me... What does one do with oneself then-?!

limitless_land: (Faithless ★ Nothing left to believe)
[The SFC shows a white paw batting at the tiny device, small tag glinting and unreadable at the moment. After a moment the kitten finally gets bored and decides that it isn't worthy of staying on its perch. Batting it off the bedside table, the audio clicks on when instead there's a black glove falling off the bed.]

—this life sentence that I'm serving? I admit that I'm every bit deserving...♪

[It's almost in a dead tone as the water runs, possibly from the next room? The male voice doesn't seem to realize that it's being recorded either as he sits up. Pale hands run through silver hair, eyes hidden by cloth. He looks like a mess, yet he keeps muttering the words under his breath, going off-key every now and then.]

Because I've been housing all this doubt and insecurity
And I've been locked inside that house.
All the while you hold the Key.
I've been dying to get out, and that might be the death of me.
And even though there's no way of knowing

[Riku's voice trails off, silent for long while before pulling out the earbuds from his ears with a sigh. The silence lasts a couple moments, before the feline decides that his lap is more comfy than the table. His eyes may not be visible, but the ways his mouth falls before he scratches his ears has to be telling.]

Get up, Kiryu. I have a report to write- ...You little sneak. [Yes, guess who just picked up the SFC and moved to shut it off before pausing.]

... For anyone who knew Joshua. ...He went home.

[The feed ends...|]

[ooc: And the tradition continues...]
limitless_land: (★ Tied to the Darkness...)
[It was one of the very few times Riku had gotten any sleep.

It was also the day that zombie fish decided to rise on up from the ground like some sort of twist to song lyrics.

So there is a very disgruntled looking Riku, a couple scrapes crossing his face here and there.]

I'd invite everyone over for an old-fashioned fish fry, but I'm afraid even an islander can't salvage this bunch of rancid meat.

[...Was he kidding? It's hard to tell with that poker face before the feed cuts. H-hopefully that wasn't a flash of gold the viewer saw behind a sliced bit of blindfold.]

[Riku can probably be found in various parts of the city, but whether he appears to be himself or another has yet to be seen.]

[ooc: Due to this event, the possibility that he may have to use another's power is very real. As such, replies may very well come from either here, or [ profile] twilitdisguise ]
limitless_land: (★ I'll miss you...)
[Once again the feed is a bit shaky once it begins, but soon it evens out to show moving trees before it's finally set down on some smooth surface--a rock?]

Sora went home. [The matter of fact tone can't hide the sadness in his voice. Yet another one of his friends, gone. While he's relieved to know for a fact that his best friend does indeed wake up from his nearly a year long slumber, he can't quite shake the wish to be there with him, able to talk to him and Kairi... to see them with his own eyes. To be at peace again and regain what was lost...

Guess it's just a distant dream for now.]
Just thought you should know, if you didn't take a look at the residency list.

[The feed ends without even showing his face, but he'll be walking around the park and middle district like a zombie, maybe even practicing a few swings and allowing a few dark spells to be used. The question remains the same: Dare you approach?]
limitless_land: (★ [Event] Caden,you idiot)
[For a while, all that it looks like on the screen is static and... dog slobber? Gross, right? Well, then the audio cuts in to a faint growl of frustration before a pencil eraser is seen. Then- wait, that voice. ...Nah, it couldn't be, could it?]

Ugh, finally.

[There... is a wolf on your SFC screen, Vatheon. Some may recognize the voice, some may not. Either way, he looks a bit relieved that he finally got this thing to work as he collapses back on a couch that's just in view of the camera view.]

Sorry about that. It's... rather hard to work the SFC without hands. [Right. Get the apologies out of the way first, then get to work on recon. ...Heh, who'd have thought.]

Vatheon, I have a question for you but first... I need to explain something.

Yesterday the city decided to grace us with another curse. While it's to be expected, I didn't expect this at all.

Something... [He hesitates, shaking his head in disbelief.] -caused someone I normally consider a friend into someone ruled by their fears. Now, normally I'd try to reason with them myself, but when I did... something happened.

...Does anyone recognize this symbol? [Riku bends his neck down, retrieving something from the floor- a sheet of paper that's a bit covered in a paw print or two, along with a few scratches and cuts from his claws and teeth. But still... he did try to draw the blasted thing from memory with a pen in his mouth/ink on a claw depending on when the pen broke due to the pressure he put on it with his jaws. After ten seconds of holding it, it drops to the floor and he lowers his head, ears folding down. He's... a strange mixture of angered and worried.]

If any of you can tell me anything about it, or that strange, oppressing feeling that came with his presence, I'd appreciate it.
limitless_land: (★ Nothing ever goes the way it should)
[He's been quiet for a while, and he was still drying off again from coming back when a mask appeared on his face in place of his blindfold. Though, that didn't worry him have as much as what he'd just seen...]

...I go "home" for a while and things go to hell again? Figures.

Private to Isa, Demyx and Axel )

Private to Sora )
limitless_land: (✰ We're finally free)
[When the feed flickers on the view is shaky at best. At least, until the SFC is gently placed down on a stable surface. What had once been dark and gloomy was now filled with saddened light, if the costume change was any indication, because two separate things happened during the night.]

[Riku pulled a complete one-eighty; his second class being a sort of white knight- a Paladin. It seemed almost ironic, seeing as-]

...For those that knew her, I thought you should know..... [He pauses, hiding his face from view with the exception of a frown crossing his lips. ...To think he'd been so amused only a couple days ago.] ...Kairi returned home last night.

[As a light disappeared overnight.]

[Riku gives a heavy sigh, pulling himself together for just a while longer. First Sora came, but now their other friend was gone? The one who'd accepted that he still had a long way to go? It stung more than he could say, and it was just too much to take at once.]

Naminé, Caden- She left something for you.

[...The feed ends. Now he has to go calm down. But before it fades out completely, there's a slight change to his stats:

limitless_land | Level 22
Class: Dark Knight/Paladin
HP: 80% | MP: 20%

...Someone's obviously taken some frustration and other negative emotions out on the quests and pirates.]
limitless_land: (★ "To protect the things that matter")
[The feed begins normally- it seems to be someone's room, though it's so tidy it's ridiculous. Is it even lived in? Well, the feed says Riku on it, but... why is the person that appears on the feed in all black - not that it's anything new about him - armor with a mask over his face that looks a bit like a dragon's skull?]

... "limitless_land"? Is this some sort of a sick joke? [Whoever this was didn't sound the least bit amused, but a faint smirk may have formed under the mask. Yes, Vatheon. Riku's become a Dark Knight. How... not much different than usual.]

Who else is affected, and is anyone planning on doing anything about it while we're stuck like this?
limitless_land: (★ I'll miss you...)
[It wasn't like it was anything different, seeing a cloaked figure walking around the upside-down fishbowl. He was headed toward the park once more, oblivious to what was going on around him other than the hearts around him.

The ignorance also extended to the bubble behind him, which he was blissfully unaware of courtesy of not being able to even see it. And what is it that can be seen?

His two friends on the beach, laughing like they had no care in the world and a younger him chuckling beside them. That is, before it fades away in a black swirl that morphs into something entirely different. Just one wish. It switches to a scene he wishes could be: being able to look his friends in the eye--no blindfold. Such was his life all thanks to his own choices that led him into the sorry state he found himself in.]
