PFF completely forgot to ramble about how much i love that one scene in Re:CoM on rikus side, where they tell repliku they’re gonna remake his heart.
OH MY GOSH when he gets betrayed by vexen NOOOO
and fricken larxene just rubbing the whole thing in and making it a hundred times more painful. She sends him flying and MAKES him realize how futile it really is to fight, how HELPLESS he is right then, GOD and to know that you’re going to be completely changed, and doesn’t repliku freak out about how he won’t be himself anymore?? that he doesn’t want to BE RIKU
repliku getting the shit beat out of him to subdue him and then the angle changes
and fucking NAMINÉ is there covering her face with her hand, looking fucking horrified and PAINED beyond belief—these poor tortured sOULS
and it closes with repliku fucking screaming for his life i fucking CANT this scene is SO MUCH FUCK
