RikuShi in fanon works for me, I guess. I'm sure that in the next game that Xion is more prominent in, she and Riku are gonna be buddy buddy. At least based on the KH3 ending and even Xion being friendly with Isa, who was really crappy towards her. Which sucks but what can we except from a game that's not exactly known for its pristine writing.

As for Vanitas ships, I'm not sure I can say the same; I've definitely become more fond of VanNami, VaniKai, RikuVani and of course Vanipliku; whether that's with the first Repliku or Replitwo/Dark Riku in the "Real" Organization XIII. Also, it being referred to as "emo SoRiku" is funny to me lmao.

Man, I hope we get some amount of Xion at some point in the future. For her and Roxas I don’t see them playing a big role any time soon. Which sucks but I feel like that’s where they’re headed.

Ooo RikuVani… I don’t mind that actually 👀

Yeahh, I'm gonna be honest, as much as I love Roxas and Xion, I feel they should've stayed dead (or gone? They're not dead dead but ykwim). That sounds harsh I know but I feel like they're just gonna be... There. If you know what I mean. It also takes away from the tragedy of their initial "deaths", at least to me. It also doesn't help that Nomura literally admitted to bringing them back just for fan service in an interview some time ago.

But on the note of RikuVani, I just like thinking of them in AUs and "what if" scenarios (like I do with all of my rare ships). I would find it quite interesting that two characters who've been affiliated with the darkness but went down entirely different paths and when they'd interact, it'd be this sort of debate between them. Like Riku goes "Light and darkness go hand-in-hand and can be used simultaneously" and then Vanitas keeps denying even a chance that he could be redeemed in some sort of way.

I also like thinking of scenarios where Sora is gone for good/dead or something like that, so Riku compensates for that by going for Vanitas. Vanitas realizes that and angst ensues, but Riku eventually gains his own genuine feelings for the guy. I can also see a scenario where Vanitas reciprocates that compensation-type action if he were to have feelings for Repliku/Replitwo.

As much as I’m happy that they’re alive and happy, I don’t think it would change much if they were still gone. That reunion in kh3 though, it was so good.

I love that idea :0!!! If you find it write any fics like that send them to me I’d love to read that. The angst would be so amazing.

Definitely! I'm currently conjuring up a few AUs in my head and RikuVani is definitely gonna be a thing in at least one of them; especially since Vanitas and Riku are the ones I have considerably less ships for compared to other characters. I definitely wanna work on my angsty writing, I think I still add too much lightheartedness to the fics I attempt adding angst to.

Yeah, I'll make sure to let you know whenever I decide to actually work on it. Writer's block has been a massive pain these last few weeks and I just,, agghh.

I also would like to write some angsty KaiXi fic with Xion being on the run from both Riku and OrgXIII then ends up having a run-in with Kairi.

Writer's block really is the worst. But I'm hopeful that I'll start working on something today.

Besides that, I really do enjoy my share of KaiXi content even if that is few and far between. But I guess those are the consequences of shipping 'rare pairs'. :/

But looking on the brighter side of things, there's lots of potential to be seen with said rare pairs. Alongside KaiXi and RikuVani, I also enjoy RepliShi, NamiKai, VenNami, TerIsa, and.. a lot more, I realize lol.

TerIsa… huh. For the other ones you mentioned, I love replishi and KaiNami! VenNami is interesting, I’ve seen a bit of it. I’d like to see Naminé use her powers to help him gain back more of this UX memories, it would be a really cool way to see them interact. Naminé’s whole memory power is so underused at the moment and there are a ton of characters who need help getting memories back and it would be a great way to include her in the story.

I don't necessarily have a concrete reason for shipping TerIsa; I just saw some posts about on Tumblr and went "Huh. Cool." and just have rolling with it ever since. Although, I do like the idea of two people who've been manipulated by the dark side and could work through that trauma together.

As for RepliShi, it just sucks that they have similar origins and never interacted, at least not directly. It's possible they could've done some stuff indirectly with Axel knowing who the two people are. Heck, Axel even expresses guilt over manipulating the kid in the Secret Reports, but that's besides the point. I also like scenarios and fics where they meet in "afterlife" scenes.

NamiKai, although often considered as selfcest, is one of my favorite femslash ships. Regarding the selfcest thing actually, I don't think that's as valid of an argument anymore since the whole "we're two separate and different people" thing. I also just think they'd be good for each other; Kairi would bring Naminé out of her shell and help her with her self-worth (which is highly struggling), and Naminé could help with Kairi's in the sense of her being left behind and stuff.

I also like VenNami for the whole Naminé being able to help Ventus with his lost memories. Another thing I enjoy about it is I just think it would be wholesome and the pining that would come from it would be adorable as heck. Tumblr, for what little content there is for VenNami, definitely helped with the pining point.

As for Naminé not doing much, and pretty much being overall useless, it really is disappointing to see as she's my favorite character in Kingdom Hearts. I do agree with the people in this thread who have said that Melody of Memory should've been a Naminé game rather than a Kairi game (even if it wasn't much of a Kairi game to begin with). It would make more sense with Naminé recapping the events of Kingdom Hearts rather than Kairi, seeing as she well... Can see into everyone's memories. I could go on and on about how Naminé- and Kairi, by extension- are completely underutilized and could be used more and in a better way.

Repliku and Xion should definitely interact at some point! They would have some really great interactions.

I’ve never been one of the people who consider KaiNami selfcest, same with SoRoxas. I understand why people do, however I don’t. They’re also one of my favorite wlw kh ships, and there really aren’t that many options for those in KH (sad). It’s KaiNami, NamiXi, and Strelrena, for ones that I can think of at least with actual interactions. I’m just waiting for Strelitzia and Kairi to interact 🤷

The only "selfcest" ships I really have a problem with are the ones I've mentioned before (VanVen and SoVani) along with RepliRiku, because I've seen those two (in this thread as well) being shipped romantically. Because RepliRiku is just too uncanny valley for me and VanVen/SoVani have the brother thing. I'm not sure whether to count Roxas x Ventus since they're not actually related but they've got the same looks. Although it would be kind of hypocritical of me to dislike a ship for one piece of logic but then not apply that to KaiNami and KaiXi, so... I guess I don't hate it.

As for the WLW ships, they truly are limited in screentime but luckily for my rare shipper ass, that's not really a problem for me. I'll literally see two (or more) characters who haven't even breathed each other's names or thought about each other once, and yet, I will still find a way to go "Hmm they should kiss".

For Kailitzia, I definitely see the appeal and I think they would be two lovely sapphics. If Strelitzia really is back, there is a possibility of Kairi and her interacting, or at least looking at each other, in canon.

Sadly for me I’ve never been able to get into a lot of rarepairs :/. It’s easier when there is some amount of content in canon.

As for Kailitzia I’m really excited to hopefully see them interact, because knowing me they’ll be my hyper fixation for far too long. Even if they have like one small interaction I will not shut up about them

Ah, that makes sense. Rare pairs aren't for everybody and I respect that.

Kailitzia is definitely interesting to think about. I think it could work in the sense that they're both somewhat doubtful of themselves when it comes to using the keyblade and just their overall skills. So they could realize that about the other person and help them get over their doubts, while exercising their own. I remember reading a fic about them actually, and it was Strelitzia waking up in the post KH3 timeline, then Kairi found her and they became good friends. I'm sure you could find it either under the "Kairi/Strelitzia" tag or "Kairi & Strelitzia", and pretty easily since this would be on the *very rare* end of the rare pair spectrum lmao.

I find Strelitzia to be a pretty shippable character overall, else since she's semi-canon to be bisexual or some sort of multisexual. Although, I personally headcanon her as pansexual, but that's besides the point. Some other ships I find myself placing Strelitzia in are Namilitzia, Venlitzia, Strelrena/Elritzia, Playlitzia/Strelayer, Skulditzia (mainly because of this fanart: ), and Skuld/Elrena/Strelitzia all in a poly throuple.

If you want, I could try to explain my reasonings for all these ships lol

Go for it!!! I’d love to hear your explainations

I’ve talked about this here I believe, but I’m not one for StrelVen, mostly because being in a relationship with your murderer, although unintentionally, doesn’t seem like a great start to a relationship.

Alright! I'll try my best to keep this simple and clean (you see what I did there?) and not overthrow you with mounds of paragraphs lmao.

Starting off with Namilitzia (or Naminé x Strelitzia), this came to me in a dream. Literally. I was dreaming and in one of the sequences, Naminé and Strelitzia had kissed! And it's basically stuck with me ever since. I'm also a sucker for WLW pairs so obviously I'm going to indulge in this for as much as I can, and I will be honest, I gravitate towards this pair a lot more than Kailitzia. What helped me like this ship even more was the parallels people were drawing from these two; the white color palette; their shy personas and overall demeanors; drives to be more friendly and have more friends; trying to get close to a special someone even though they're seemingly too good for them; I could go on but I think you know what I mean. Although I love the "Opposites attract" trope, I also have a massive love for pairs that have characters who might seem *too* similar (another example of this is Rockie (Robin x Vickie) from Stranger Things) but they're excellent for each other anyways, because they can find a sort of solace in one another and relate more easily. I also like AUs where Strelitzia ends up the Final World and so she meets Naminé there after the Guardians fall to darkness for the first time in KH3.

Now moving onto Venlitzia (Ventus x Strelitzia), I see this working in a strictly post KH3 scenario, both because of the murder (although involuntary) and the weird age stuff. First of all, Ven was likely 12 or even younger in UX and I'm not sure we ever got an official age/age range for Strelitzia, but I think it's safe to assume that's she's mid-teens? But I might be completely off there. Regarding the murder stuff, I can see Venlitzia working well after a lot of development Post KH3 and assuming Strelitzia will come back to "Reality", I can see it working. I also like the idea of their wholesome pining.

Strelrena (Strelitzia x Elrena) also comes from an intense love for WLW ships, but then I started thinking about their in-canon relationship. From what I remember (because I haven't watched the cutscenes in awhile), Strelitzia and Elrena did work together in the same party before the girl died/went missing. Then Elrena, who we know to be closed off and minding her own business, went as far as time travel to find Strelitzia. Sure, the situation was dire but I just find that interesting and cool to think about. Also if you take Elrena's "We weren't exactly what you'd call friends" comment out of context, it almost makes it sound like they were dating. One last thing I like thinking about them is how Strelitzia would react to seeing how much Elrena/Larxene had changed post KH3 and sort of by extension, how Elrena/Larxene would react to Strelitzia still being around after all this time and potentially how much she changed, too.

Strelayer (Strelitzia x Player character). This one is obvious enough, I believe. I'm not as much of a shipper as I am with other Strelitzia ships, and even Player ships (I am, admittedly, a big fan of Ephelayer, and Skulayer (and all three of them in a throuple)). But Strelitzia pining over Player, albeit in a relatively stalkerish way, was quite wholesome and we were just thrown a bunch of angst by killing off Strelitzia right before she was able to talk to Player for the first time. It made me tear up a bit to be honest and I felt for Strelitzia.

Skuldlitzia is pure self-indulgence and the strive for more WLW content. The thought of them just appeared in my head and I went to see if there's any content for them on Tumblr or Twitter or AO3, and turns out there's quite a bit actually. But obviously not enough to satisfy my taste buds lmao.

Poly Strelitzia/Skuld/Elrena is another result of self-indulgence but also one of finding that one fanart I sent while looking for Skuldlitzia content. I just,,, my WLW brain goes boom while seeing and thinking of that stuff. I just think they'd be very wholesome and good, lovely sapphics. They'd also be good for each other and help each other get over their personal conflicts, in my opinion.

So... This got long, I hope you don't mind hhhh. Anyways those are my Strelitzia ships,, 🔥🔥🔥

Although I’m only really fans of StrelKai, Strelayer, and Strelrena, I can definitely understand why you’d like the others. Strelitzia ships are all just so cute 😭😭😭 also the fact you had a StrelNami dream is soooooo adorable!
