What if instead of trying to reject the power of darkness, Riku decided he'd become a master of it instead, and was able to overpower Xehanort's will? Might he have become the next emissary of darkness, rejecting the way to dawn completely? Might he have overthrown Maleficent and taken a seat of power in Hollow Bastion?
THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW.
But it's a fun little blurb to think about. Until you remember who the true Keyblade master is, of course.
GONNA GO PLAY MORE KH:DDD, BRB
