This is adorable! :] OLDER!Hope and Light are one of my favorite pairings. I didn't mind the idea of him having a crush on Light when he was younger, but relationship-wise with him being that young....naaaah.
As for the whole Alyssa thing, right before I saw her, I was doing a report on a girl named Oxana Malaya, who was raised by dogs. ]: Then I saw a picture of Alyssa, and...they just look similar to me now.
As for the picture! I really like how you did the shading on the armor and their hair. The hair just looks so smooth. <3
