Am I the only one whose heart breaks every time they look at this?

I'm sure all of you have noticed the importance of hands in this series. From Destati's opening line "Awaken, hold out your hand" to the multitudes of times characters have held hands.

It's clearly a way of signifying hearts reaching out. For characters like Sora, Kairi, Riku, and Mickey, it is a way of connecting hearts together. For people like Young Xehanort, it is a form of deceit and manipulation.

Just want to get your thoughts on hands in relations to connections/bonds. Also, please post any images you have of scenes featuring hands from the series. I mean I'm not doing this for a reason or anything hahahahaha

A few different instances come to mind:

- Namine is almost always clasping her hands, sometimes around her drawing padβ€”a reminder of how she'll always be solitary, in one way or another.

- Sora and Riku clasp hands over the Keyblade right before vanquishing Xemnas; this is also done between Aqua and Terra when they banish the Guardian/Xehanort, I think.

- Riku and Mickey have their recurring handshake, a nice gesture between them.

- All of the Xehanorts gesture in a way that fits their personalities:

-- Master Xehanort wiggles, claws, and grasps, showing how craven and power-hungry he has become.
-- "Ansem" sweeps with grand gestures, scooping you up with charisma.
-- Xemnas slowly twists and contorts his hands as he speaks; if anything, it gives him an unsettling aura of wrongness.

I dig this interpretation, right on.

That is really interesting because I've never noticed it in that light. Also, I think of her drawings and how they are memories, so in a way she is unable to be a part of people's memories and can only indirectly "touch" them.

- Sora and Riku clasp hands over the Keyblade right before vanquishing Xemnas; this is also done between Aqua and Terra when they banish the Guardian/Xehanort, I think.

Yes, when Aqua uses that special Trinity Limit, Terra does place his hand over hers when they do the attack. So, a union of power? Strength of one's bonds?

- Riku and Mickey have their recurring handshake, a nice gesture between them.

It's really touching. They shake hands when creating their friendship, promises, in greeting and in parting.

- All of the Xehanorts gesture in a way that fits their personalities:

-- Master Xehanort wiggles, claws, and grasps, showing how craven and power-hungry he has become.

This I have noticed and the closer he is to his goals, the more he does it.

In the great wide somewhere~
There are so many I can think of, but Google won't find the pictures. >:c

Like when Sora and Namine pinky promised
And when Sora shook Namine's hand
And when Namine grabbed Roxas's wrist to save him from falling in the darkness
And when Namine put her hand in front of Roxas's face so she could take
And this one, I'm just too dejected to look for, but someone handing someone sea-salt ice cream counts, I think.
