happy piccolo day
do you ever get weirded out by the fact that everyone around you is constantly within their own mind and thinking a million secret thoughts and battling internal struggles just like you and that you’re not the only one who thinks these things and that the people around you aren’t just faces meant to fill up your life but they’re actually really deep people who have a lot more to them than you ever actually even think about
CISPA is a nightmare.
do yourself a favor, scroll back up to the top, and fucking read this shit.

A time lapse video of this painting can be viewed here.
reblogging this while it’s still just at 36 notes before it all blows up completely
Yes, very yes
Everyone who reblogs this will get the title of a book to read based on their bio/posts.
Everyone. I mean it.
THIS IS THE BEST POST
I HAVE EVER SEEN
they really do mean everyone
Translated, Riku means “land,” and Sora means “sky.”
why were these names chosen?
Because Sora constantly chases after Riku, which is supposed to symbolize the sky trying to meet the land.
In the distance, it may seem that they meet, but they never actually will.
They chose those names because Sora will never find Riku in the end, and any attempt is futile.
What about Kairi?
Kairi translates to “sea.”
That means that Kairi is ultimately the thing that will keep Sora and Riku separated.
well not really lol
this symbolisim pretty obviously completely falls apart when you consider the fact the sky is over the entirety of both the land and the sea… at all times…
the love he has for both of them is unconditional and nonpartisan and you could refer to like literally every contained canonical instance that seeks to develop their relationships to see that
sora was named after the sky in reference to the fact that his love, kindness and compassion for all people is without borders (going worldly far beyond just the three of them to every friend he has ever made and every service he has ever selflessly offered in the entirety of his travels)
the allusory symbolisim behind riku and kairi’s naming and its pertinence to their relationship with sora is homage to the fact that it is the duty of the land and sea to consistently support the sky (“my friends are my power”)
(it is also notable that the land obviously extends under the ocean, which could be construed as riku supporting kairi in her instances of vulnerability, and, if anything, the land utilizing its limitless strength and stability to usher the sea closer to the sky)
names are chosen very carefully in this series to link characters and concepts together over previously insurmountabe establishments (ventus, ‘wind’ in latin, and vanitas, ‘emptiness’ in latin, reflect both serenity and chaos in the sky and the light and darkness in sora’s heart; naminé, spliced off the word ‘nami’ that means ‘wave’ in japanese, xion, spliced off the word ‘shio’ that means ‘tide’ in japanese, reflect their relationship to kairi and how they are concepts extracted from the ocean)
if they were intended to symbolize anything it certainly wasn’t that of contained conflict within their relationships, but rather, universal unity between their corresponding elemental concepts in the face of applied adversity within their relationships
if you can’t see that, from a superlative standpoint, it’s a positive sentiment and not a negative one, then idk you’re just missing the entirety of kh’s emphasis on the durability and untarnished prominence of friendship and love
