Notes: This is my entry for heyheyrenay's FFX badfic summary challenge. (Better two weeks late than never?) I was assigned cupcakemonster's summary, and you can see the original here. A rough translation from the fanbratese: "Please forgive my difficulty in writing summaries. Auron is in love with Rikku. Will she return his feelings, or does she love another? Dear friends, please do read and review."

So, Aurikku. To say that I am not a fan of this pairing would be a bit of an understatement. Apologies, I know many of you like it, but it almost never works for me. I tried everything I could think of it to get around it -- creating an original character with the same name, Auron actually in love with Yuna's mother who shares a name with her niece, Kingdom Hearts crossover... but in the end it all fell flat. So I decided to embrace the challege instead, to see if I could actually write an Aurikku and keep Auron in character. Here is my humble attempt.

As a side note, this started life as an outtake from A Guardian's Legacy. I knew there was a reason I kept it around.
