Subject:Pain and Stuff
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:10:13 pm.
Riku did NOT want to get up in the morning. Sora's bed was warm. Sora's bed was safe. And there, he didn't have to think about how horribly the previous night had ended. How his car was hurt, and he was hurt, and his boyfriend was hurt. How they were damn lucky that they weren't hurt more. And... Riku's feelings were hurt. How could someone be so horrible to another person? Just because they were different. It made Riku feel like he was going to have some kind of irrational fear, like not wanting to hold Sora's hand in public anymore, because one of them might get hurt. He hated feeling this way. They'd been so carefree, so normal in their public relationship. Why should they have to start worrying now? It wasn't fair.

Alright, he'd decided. He wasn't leaving bed today. In fact, Riku locked his arms around Sora's waist, to make sure Sora didn't try either. They'd say they were sick, or something. At the very worst Sora's family would think they had sex or something and couldn't walk. That was a lot better than letting them know they'd been attacked, in Riku's opinion.

Subject:Visiting a Sora
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:6:38 pm.
Riku couldn't WAIT to get out of school on Friday and drive down to Twilight Town to see his boyfriend. He was probably speeding a bit, but could you really blame him? He was FINALLY well. His boyfriend was well. His boyfriend's parents were well enough to handle Riku hanging around the house the whole weekend. He couldn't WAIT to see Sora.

Of course, seeing Sora was a little delayed by a trip to Hayner's house first. Hayner was... surprised to see him. "You have a little sister, right?" Riku asked, trying to be nice even though Hayner gave him a suspicious look. "Look, I need her help. I've never done something like this before."

Lucky for Riku, he'd assumed correctly and Rachel had EVERYTHING that was required. Riku didn't approve of the HOUR it took to get everything ready, but he had to admit, Rachel did good work.

He called on his way over from Hayner's house, giving Sora the five minute warning.

Rachel had teased his hair just so, with her hairspray and product, she's done his eyes, calling his a baby the whole time he whined and complained and squirmed. Riku hadn't put the black leather pants on until he was just about to leave to go to Sora's, coupled with a light blue shirt, a black jacket, and the shark tooth necklace Sora had given him for his birthday.

God he couldn't wait to see Sora!

Subject:Have your self a very Hayner Christmas....
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:8:32 pm.
Hayner was really kind of miserable. He'd moved most of his essential things from school when he'd left, but a lot of his larger stuff was still in his old room. He left weirdly between worlds. How could it be Christmas? His parents were gone, his best friend gone with his not!boyfriend, there didn't seem to be anything worth celebrating.

Two days before Christmas found Hayner laying on his back in his room, starring at his ceiling. His little sister was out with his grandmother and some of Rachel's friends, trying to give the little girl something to celebrate. Hayner, not about to go out with a bunch of girls, stayed home. But now he wished he had gone.

Somehow, he found himself reaching for his phone, and texting Seifer. 'Hey. How's your Christmas going?' He asked. He very much doubted Seifer went home to his vile father.

Subject:Sick and Sora deprived
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:11:48 pm.
Saying goodbye to Sora to go back to school was one of the hardest things Riku could remember having to do in his life. Yeah, he knew that he'd see Sora on the weekend, and he'd call Sora as soon as he got back to school... they'd get skype so that they could see each other when they were both on the internet, and they'd call all the time. But it wasn't going to be the same as having Sora live right down the hall.

There was just something wrong about the first day of the new quarter, and not having Sora there to share it with. Oh having to do his homework in front of the computer so that he and Sora could talk, even though it more often than not turned out to be Sora watching him do his homework.

Still, Riku tried to balance everything. He met with all their people and had lunch with a different once each day, he went to class, he went running in the mornings, he called his boyfriend after classes, he did his homework in the evenings, and talked with his boyfriend during that and after it too when Sora was around and not at the hospital until one or both of them went to bed.

The first weekend he got to visit Sora was almost teasingly cruel. Sora's parents were still at the hospital, and they were there more often than anywhere else.

Tuesday back, Riku began to feel blue and kind of slow. Wednesday he overslept after coughing all night and didn't have time to go running. Wednesday night, Riku didn't turn on skype and just 'talked' to Sora over instant messenger. He'd been informed several times by his roommate that he looked like shit. He didn't want Sora to see that. Or hear him either. He used 'lots of homework' as his excuse as to why he couldn't use skype or his phone. Sora was busy looking after his parents; Riku didn't want to give him anything else to worry about.

Subject:And it was all just a dream
Posted by:somebody_nobody.
Time:4:43 pm.
Christmas was pleasant. There weren't a ton of presents all over the place, in fact Sora was sure Riku got the most, but it was his house and his family, so that made sense. Sora himself got Roxas some new wheels for his skateboard, and Roxas got Sora an external hard drive, which he explained later was for all his business crap. The boys got the dogs some treats and toys, and Sora got Riku's Mom and Dad matching paperweights in the shape of Mandarin Ducks. They were white, so in case Riku's Mom wanted to put them in her white room thing instead. He got Aba a really nice brush and inkstone. He got Riku a cool architecture book, and a book about rocks, and some rocks, and an air freshener for his car that was cheesecake scented (mostly cause it was funny, not that it actually smelled good) and a cool case for his glasses so he wouldn't put them on his head and lose them from jumping into the ocean. Christmas was food and playing in the snow and being lazy and eating candy.

The day after Christmas meant going to the mall to try and get things on sale, or exchange things, or get rid of that hella ugly sweater that Riku's Mom got him.

The 27th was spent packing some stuff for the trip that they were leaving for the next morning, and Roxas was leaving that evening on a train back to Hollow Bastion. It was the middle of the afternoon and everyone was sitting around eating lunch in the livingroom and playing monopoly. Riku was winning because both twins kind of sucked. "I need to learn to be better at this game. Especially the acquiring and building on property part." Sora lamented, hoping he wouldn't have to break into that 500 he had stashed just to get past Riku's stupid four houses.

Subject:Christmas Eve
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:3:20 pm.
Riku had NOT been interested in waking up when his alarm went off in the morning. He was warm, Sora was warm, the dogs didn't need to go out yet, did he really have to get up?

Yes, yes he did. Leaving Sora all cute and warm under the blankets, Riku crawled out of bed, leaving the door open if the dogs decided to go out. He could hear people downstairs, but he needed to get stuff ready for Roxas, which meant making sure that the room Sora was SUPPOSED to use was all nice and Roxas-ready, then wrapping Christmas presents, making sure he had all their reservations and stuff, and then wandering downstairs for a bowl of cereal, eventually taking the doggies out.

Subject:Best friend?
Posted by:somebody_nobody.
Time:10:54 pm.
It was the day before Christmas Eve. Typical of Riku and Sora, the two boys slept through the morning. Sora had just gotten out of the shower around eleven and was getting dressed. He and Riku didn't have much plans today. Roxas would be dropped off tomorrow.

Sora picked up his phone when it chimed that he had a text and poked at it. "Oh...." he said, eyes widening a little. "Uhhhh...." He stood there for a while looking at his phone.

There was a knock on Riku's front door.

Subject:Its still Christmas Break, right?
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:3:58 pm.
Riku was still half asleep when he dragged himself downstairs in the morning, yawning, and his hair messed from sleeping. He'd left Sora in bed to sleep in while he took the dogs out quickly. He well intended to crawl right back into bed with him and sleep for awhile more.

He'd also intended to change out of Sora's shirt before he really came out of his room to greet the day.

And there was his mother, just sitting at the kitchen table when he came back inside with the dogs. "Uh," Riku grunted, not awake enough to hold a normal conversation.

"You're up early," his mother noted, and Riku gestured to the dogs. They'd woken him up or he'd still be asleep. He only half noticed her glance at his choice of clothing this morning... Sora's t-shirt and a pair of boxers, while he grabbed the carton of chocolate milk from the fridge. She didn't want to know how he ended up wearing it.

The dogs seemed very interested in the fridge and Riku's milk and he gave them a little shove. "Go say hi to Sora," he told them, pointing towards the door. "Go say hi."

"Is he still in your room?" Riku's mother asked, not exactly innocently. Riku was nodding before he realized that he was... then he paused, considered what to say, and gave her a flat and serious, 'Yes.'

"Riku," she began, but he cut her off.

"Mother, please. I know you two don't get along really well, but he means a lot to me. And he thinks you hate him, so can you please be a little nicer? He'd going through a lot right now, and its Christmas."

Subject:Riku's Mom
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:7:04 pm.
Riku's Mother was trying. She quietly put up with Riku bringing his... friend home for the winter break, TRIED to make him feel welcome, allowed whatever he needed, she even managed to not say anything when he realized that Riku's friend had moved into Riku's room.

She didn't monitor their coming and goings, she didn't eavesdrop on their conversations, she allowed her mother to spoil them both rotten...

But she had finally reached her limit.

"Sora, a moment alone, please." Riku was out of the house... gone to the store, it was the perfect time.

Subject:Winter Break
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:8:31 pm.
Riku was eventually very, VERY reluctantly woken by being stepped on and doggy noses pressed against his cheek. He tried to ignore it, but the dogs were persistant and very reluctantly he climbed out of bed.

"Come on, boys," he yawned, and turning and tucking the blankets around Sora's shoulders to keep him warm.

The stupid cat was blocking the stairs as he tried to go down, one of the maids must have let him out, but Riku just stepped around it and took the dogs out to pee.

Subject:Winter break, the first day
Posted by:somebody_nobody.
Time:12:01 pm.
Despite the progress he had made, Sora still ended up on the mattress on the floor Thursday night. He didn't get to sleep right away, just thinking. It was the first time he had wandered back to rational thinking since this had all happened. Roxas needed to call their grandparents and ask what was supposed to happen. They had to have a memorial service. Financial aid would help them finish the year at RGU, but what about the dogs? Roxas and Sora could probably save money by moving to an apartment off campus, but would they sell the house? The idea of selling their house was painful. There were too many memories, too many important things, not to mention just too much stuff. He'd definitely need that part time job, now.

Still, the hardest thing was his wounded heart. He had so much that he wanted to say to his parents, and so much time that he wanted to spend with them that was now impossible. So many things he wanted to share with them. Graduation, making his business, being a son that they could really be proud of, maybe even getting married at some point. Maybe even children. Who knew? Who could he go to when he just needed that unconditional love, the support and advice? It was so hard.

Sora breeze through the Chemistry final, promptly forgetting everything that he learned once he walked out of the classroom. It didn't take long for him and Riku to pack up and be on their way to Hollow Bastion. Riku probably appreciated the silence in the car a little, and indeed Sora had been especially silent that morning thus far, just looking out the window at the passing scenery. The closer they got to Riku's house the more and more nervous he felt, and the more he wished he was going home to his parents.

Time:9:42 pm.
Roxas felt so stupid for being a sobbing mess in the hall, but the guilt was eating him, Sora was a zombie, and he felt more alone than ever.

He pounded on Axel's door, hoping that he would answer quickly, and no one would walk by in the hallway and see him looking so pathetic and miserable and worried.

Subject:System malfunction
Posted by:somebody_nobody.
Time:8:37 pm.
Sora had been hanging on. He really had. Riku did a good job of making him forget what was going on, but unfortunately, everyone else did not. Especially Roxas. He was so broken up about losing his parents, he just felt sick and miserable. He wanted to go home, but he didn't want to go home to an empty house. He didn't want any of this, and least of all, he didn't want Sora to continue to live like nothing was going on. It made him angry, and hurt, and feel so alone.

The twins met up after Sora had turned in his paper, and things were quiet for a while. "What should we do for Christmas?" Roxas asked. They needed to discuss it.

"Go home," Sora replied flatly. What else?

"Then just the two of us-"

"Our whole family, like always," Sora interrupted. He didn't want to talk about it.

Roxas sighed, exasperated. "Sora, it's been three days."

"So?" Sora replied.

"So, stop being an idiot! Their plane crashed Sora, when are you going to get a clue? You're leaving me to deal with this all by myself!" Roxas was getting angry, and get stood up from where he was sitting on Sora's bed.

"Roxas, everything is going to be fine! If you would just stop-"

"You stop! Sora, our parents are dead, okay?" He grabbed his brother and shook his shoulders. "No one survives plane crashes in the ocean! If the plane didn't explode or they didn't die on impact they drowned by now!"

"They're coming back!" Sora argued. They were both yelling now. "They're-"

Before he could stop himself, Roxas smacked his brother as hard as he could. "SHUT UP! SHUT UP SORA! MOM AND DAD ARE NEVER COMING BACK! THEY'RE DEAD! They're never coming back! Never..." Fearing he would burst into tears there, Roxas ran out of the room.

Sora sat there on his bed. One by one, everything started to flood into his head, even as the sting to his face started to fade. Roxas might have come back later, but Sora didn't hear anything he said. He didn't look at him, didn't speak to him, even when Roxas got frustrated and yelled at him again, Sora gave no response. Roxas started to worry, and even when he pleaded with Sora to say anything, nothing happened at all. And when Roxas left again, Sora finally got up, but only to turn off his light and lock his door and turn off his phone, curl up in a ball in his bed and cry.

Because their parents were never coming back.

Seifer didn't sleep well after Hayner left.  He'd ended up tossing and turning for most of the night worrying about what was going on with Hayner.  He'd finally given up about an hour before his alarm was scheduled to go off, and ambled into the bathroom to take a shower, and ran into Sora, brushing his teeth.

"Oh, sorry..."  He mumbled, and went to leave, before realizing that Sora might know all about what was going on with Hayner.  "Uhm, hey, so...Hayner went home yesterday, because...someone died.  I didn't really want to press him, but do you know what happened?"

Subject:Too bad for Hayner.
Posted by:somebody_nobody.
Time:7:04 pm.
Leon S. Kennedy was surprised to find he had to merely go up one floor to tell another kid that their parents were on the same crashed flight. He figured it was likely the kids were childhood friends, and maybe the parents had gone somewhere together. Or they were cousins.

Didn't matter, he still had to do it.

So he read over the piece of paper again, and knocked on the Hayner/Seifer door, waiting for an answer.

Subject:Finals week in December
Posted by:somebody_nobody.
Time:1:38 pm.
Roxas was so glad he didn't have a final on Monday. What a horrible day to have to have one on, you had to study all weekend. It HAD just been Thanksgiving break, but it was nice to have an extended weekend like this to just be in his room quietly with some headphones (Demyx would use nonverbal communication if he wanted something anyways) and a bag of chips and his laptop.

He didn't hear the knock on the door at first, until it was much louder, and finally pulled his headphones out to go answer it. He was confused to see a police officer standing there, and wondered if it was something about Demyx's accident.

"I'm looking for Roxas?" Leon S. Kennedy asked. Man, he hated doing stuff like this. This kid was just a freshman. But the call was sent to the local police there and an officer asked to deliver the message personally rather than by phone.

"That's me," Roxas replied slowly, opening the door a little more. "What's the problem?"

Leon took the paper from his pocket. "I am here to inform you that Alaska airlines flight 337 sent several distress signals before it allegedly went down over the pacific last night."

Roxas sort of blinked. "What's that got to do with me?" It seemed so random...?

Leon almost groaned. Apparently he was a spacey kid.

"Your parents, Helen and Nick were listed on the flightlog of this particular flight. Their status is currently 'missing'."

"Oh..." Roxas replied, eyes widening. His....parents. They were coming home from their vacation, weren't they. 'Went down'. 'Missing'. Roxas merely stared at the man.

"We will continue to update you with new information. Good day." He left after that, because even if the kid started asking questions, he wouldn't have any answers.

Roxas stood there at the door, in shock, staring to nowhere, even after he had left.

Subject:You said there'd be cartoons!
Posted by:somebody_nobody.
Time:3:25 pm.
Sora woke up very eventually, thankfully a bit later than usual, nine in the morning instead of six. Well, he had been tired.

Part of his arm was pinned down awkwardly, but he pulled it free and shifted some, lying there for a while. Eventually, when he realized he couldn't go back to sleep, he decided to stare at Riku, who was conveniently close. That kept him entertained for quite a while.

There was a knock on the door, and Sora's first instinct was to scoot all the way under the covers so whoever came in might not know he was there. However, when they tried the door it was locked anyway, and they went away.

Which was good considering...Sora hadn't bothered to put pajamas on and neither had Riku. In fact, boxers were about as good as they got before they fell asleep.

Sora walked his fingers up his boyfriend's arm. " have to wake up now. You'll miss your Grandma's breakfast." And Sora would keep playing with his hair until he did.

Posted by:hottandontop.
Time:4:27 pm.
Axel hated shopping, and hated that it was a necessity at least once a year.  He often tried to buy as many Christmas presents as he could online, just so he could avoid the crowded department stores, but that wasn't always an option.  He also understood that it was smart to do a majority of your shopping on Black Friday, especially if you weren't made of money.  That didn't mean he liked it though.  He just saw the pluses of it, and acted accordingly. 

So, that morning he was getting dressed, with as little grumbling as possible, knowing the excursion was unavoidable.  And at least he'd get to spend some more time with Roxas.

Subject:A Meeting of Worlds: Apartment
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:11:41 pm.
The little cuddle bubble on the couch was really too cute, if Riku was allowed to use such words. He's never heard the other Riku so talkative. He must have been more worried and depressed about the Prince's disappearence than he let on. He was all smiles now, laughing with the Prince and recounting his adventures to their apartment like they had been the things of fairy tales.

"Sure," Riku agreed. It'd been at least two weeks since they'd put aside time for a proper 'date'. Homework and hanging out with their friends sometimes got in the way. So doing it 'right' tonight sounded good. "I'm going to take a shower." He smiled and tugged playfully on the belt-loops of Sora's jeans. "You want to share?"

Subject:Special A Meeting of Worlds: Taylor Heights Dorm
Posted by:shadowedhearts.
Time:11:26 pm.
Riku pushed a chicken nugget around on his napkin for a little bit. That other Sora.

"He showed up at the Outdoors Center, wearing the most rediculious clothes. But, you know, seeing as how there shouldn't BE three sets of people all looking alike, I thought he was you. So when someone told me you fainted, I was really worried. I took you, him, the person I thought was you, into the back. When you woke up, you were so relieved. You started to cry. You... you thought I had died in a shipwreck. I just thought you'd had some horrible dream, or hit your head, or something. I was really worried."

Though he felt really stupid now.

"So I took you back here, and you kept insisting that you were this Prince, and to not call you Sora, but you didn't want to go to the hospital. So I went and got Roxas. Roxas was convinced that there was something wrong, and went out to get you lunch. But, from talking and such... you decided that I wasn't the Riku you knew because of how our stories failed to match up. I was very angry, and very hurt. And you... he... would have left the dorms completely, if Roxas didn't convince him to wait until morning. But I guess Roxas called you, the real you, and realized that you weren't you. You were the other Sora."

Now he was kind of confusing himself.

"I didn't sleep very well," Riku confessed. "After everything we've been though, after all the memories we've made... I couldn't understand how my boyfriend could suddenly be chasing after a figment of his imagination. Except, when Roxas let me use his phone in the morning, you answered. And I was so glad." He buried his face against Sora's shoulder. "Sora. My Sora. Not that Sora."
