[Rikku clears her throat before reciting the following~]

So what should you do
When you've made someone blue
And broken some thing
And you've broken the spring
That was in their step?
Why, give them back that pep
And give them something better ♥

[ooc; What all this really cheesy poetry translates to roughly is... Rikku broke Nise's favorite magnet in the shape of a giraffe when she showed up. And she's put a lot of thought into how best she ought to make up with him and brought home a new addition to the family. Meet Susie.]

[video post--but definitely not accidental]

[The video feed takes a slow, panoramic shot of what would appear to be an empty apartment. An empty apartment filled with things. This appartment appears to be startlingly dirty--there's something on every surface, like a big black smudge! But wait. No, it's not a smudge. It's a name. R-I-K-K-U is spelled out in big, blocky black letters everywhere. On everything. Sometimes twice. There's the sound of some serious giggles in the background.]

[Fabric rustles and whispers. There's a soft thwump, like skin bumping something hard, followed by an irrate squeak.]

Shh! You're going to give us away!

Me? You're the one who dropped it!

Well, you should have watched where you were going!

If you'd lose a few ounces, I wouldn't have to watch where I'm going!

[sputtering] What's that supposed to mean? You're the one who wouldn't stop eating all that peanut butter--and the raisins--and--

Well they were yummy! I've never gotten to eat anything before, and--

Shhhh! Do you hear that? [A moment of silence, followed by the sound of footsteps.] Someone's coming! Quick, hide--[Another silence, followed by the sound of scuttling across carpet and then another bumping thwump--] Owie! Wait for me!

{ooc; Hah, so, Rikku and her dæmon are in Axel and the Replica's apartment. (I do have permission for this, of course.) He might have it blocked out from other Nobodies poofing in, but he apparently didn't exclude treasure-seeking fairies or their ferret partners. Rikku's speech is in orange and the ferret's is blue-green. This is sort of our intro post, and yes, Rikku is riding her ferret. Mush!}

No one does anything perfectly, and sometimes we all need a little help. If you see something about my gameplay that you feel merits a comment, suggestion, or criticism, please feel free to tell me so; I promise I don't bite. I've enabled and screened anonymous comments and turned off IP logging, so if you really feel like you can't say it with your name attached, you can still say your piece.

Abilities: Rikku uses magic unrelated to combat. It is clear that she is capable of flight, and this appears to be her preferred mode of transportation (as opposed to walking). It’s also apparent that she and her fellow fairies are capable of using their magic for some kind of teleportation, as they disappear at will with a flash of sparkles. She’s able to conjure up items in her possession with the same sort of sparkling magic that allows for teleportation. It is likely, based on the world that Rikku comes from, the fact that she is a fairy, and her counterpart from FFX/X-2’s capabilities, that Rikku is capable of using magic typical of the Kingdom Hearts franchise (blizzard, fire, cure, etc). However, because we do not specifically see Rikku using such techniques, I believe that as of yet she is only capable of such magic and has not actually learned it yet. Given time and opportunity, she might be able to learn to use such magic.

Clearly, her small size means that Rikku is incapable of many things, including things that people normally take for granted—such as lifting moderately heavy objects, shopping for clothing, using silverware for eating, walking a dog, etc. So even though Rikku can get places easily thanks to her teleportation and flight, actually doing things can sometimes be a challenge. It is notable that in a physical altercation, by herself, Rikku would likely be unable to defend herself without the use of her magic. And for a creature her size, being able to fly—especially as fast as she does—is critical, in that being forced to walk everywhere would take forever.

History/background: Very little is known about Rikku’s history. Some time prior to Sora’s third visit to Hollow Bastion in KH2, Yuna, Rikku, and Paine met Maleficent. Promising the fairies treasure in return for their services, Maleficent hired them to spy on Leon and his allies, otherwise known as the Restoration Committee. Although the girls did as they were told, accurately scouting out Sora and company and reporting their findings, Maleficent did not seem to keep them well informed (Paine claims they “come in peace” and Rikku nods along while Yuna seems to disagree;) nor did she take the time to properly reward them for their efforts.
more under hereCollapse )

Personality: The qualities made apparent by Rikku’s limited role in Kingdom Hearts are numerous. If sugar and spice and everything nice are what little girls are made of, Rikku got a double shot of tangy, sugary goodness in her making. Rikku is cheerful, upbeat, free-spirited and confident in her abilities. Some might say her energy almost qualifies her as obnoxious and hyperactive. Rikku tends to be lacking in common sense and forethought, often off and running her mouth or going through with a plan before she’s properly thought things through. (That seems to be what her pals are there for—to give her the caution and prevent her from doing things she shouldn’t.)
more under hereCollapse )

Background setting: Kingdom Hearts’ universe consists of a number of worlds that are separated not only by space itself but by magical forces. With certain magic abilities and a strong enough heart, a person can traverse these worlds or even fall between them should the worlds’ magical defenses be compromised. No two worlds are alike, and many of these worlds are filled with faces that would be familiar to any five year old who’s watched Disney movies.

In a more specific sense, Rikku hails from a world known both as Radiant Garden/Hollow Bastion. The duality of the names is a bit confusing and a result of the changes that have occurred to the world in the time since KHI: as the world is properly rebuilt, the natives are trying to resurrect its former glory and change its image. Consisting of one town, a large castle, and what is known as “the waterworks,” Hollow Bastion is a relatively small planet with a surprising number of denizens. Aside from the fairy trio, nearly all of the Squeenix-based characters in Kingdom Hearts reside here, in addition to a few well-known Disney characters (namely Merlin, Archemedes, Pete, and Maleficent, and Stitch, but also Huey, Dewey, and Luey and their Uncle Scrooge). Hollow Bastion also acts as the gateway to two other worlds that can only be accessed by using Hollow Bastion as their nexus—the Hundred Acre Wood and Space Paranoids. Although the town and castle are still technically in ruins after having been torn asunder from the events during KHI, residents are in the process of repair and waging an increasingly successful battle against attempted invasions from Maleficent, her Heartless, and the Nobodies.

Physical description:
As one can see from the image provided, Rikku is a young girl with extremely long, blond hair, green eyes with swirled pupils, and a slim figure. The clothes she is always seen wearing are colorful if a tad skimpy. Although there has been fanon speculation that it is Rikku’s multicolored scarf that gifts her with the ability to fly (made more plausible by Yuna’s and Paine’s accessories, which both resemble wings) I have been unable to find any official word on this. Although you cannot tell from this picture, Rikku is actually quite tiny—about ½ to ¾ the size of Donald. However, because Kingdom Hearts’ character scale is notoriously wonky (I can explain this if necessary, but I’d rather not if I don’t have to) it’s my guestimate that she is appropriately around a foot tall, regardless of visual comparisons. Rikku has no known age, and it is generally difficult to guess how old she might be. She has a bit of a baby face, suggesting she’s still plenty young, and her body is clearly not that of an “adult” (regardless of size). However, curvature of her body suggests that she is no longer a “child” but somewhere in her teenage years, and the fact that she is 15 and 17 respectively in FFX/X-2 provides some further credence to this theory. If her character design is any indication, Rikku may very well be closer to 17 as her KH2 appearance is definitely more firmly based on her incarnation in X-2.

Please do not reuse these icons without permission; I'm cool with sharing but I went through a lot of trouble to make all of these icons for myself, so I'd just appreciate knowing if anyone else finds them worth using.
