Finally got a moment to finish coloring this freakin’ thing (the sketch of which I posted earlier here). This was my back-story for Riku’s hair cut in KH:3D -
In which Riku says, 'it’s really hard to fight with long hair in my face, hey Sora, can you cut it for me? And Sora is all surethingofcourse.’
Only Riku brought the latest issue of Spider-Man to read during his hair cut and Sora loves Spider-Man (because a hero that has to deal with school-work on top of saving the world is something he easily relates to?) so he’s not doing a good job of paying attention while cutting Riku’s hair. If this is how it went down, then I am perfectly fine with him having shorter locks.
I’m actually in the midst of playing Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance right now, and goddamn these two cute bastards. If these guys aren’t an official couple in KH:3, they’re doing the story all wrong. …I’m cool with ‘em as best bros too, to be honest.
But come on. You’re not foolin’ anyone, Nomura.
