VK: The Next Generation by La-cruciatus VK: The Next Generation by La-cruciatus
A month after the final chapter of VK came out, I couldn't help but imagine the future. Both Zero and Yuuki are dead while Kaname begins his new life as a human. After coming to terms with ending, what intrigued me the most was the 'fate' of Yuuki's two unnamed children.

I'd been hoping for a side-story which would throw light upon these two characters, or maybe some vignettes of Zero and Yuuki's life together... but since that seems unlikely I decided to comfort myself with a colorization and fantsizing. Perhaps they named the boy Ichiru, after the twin brother that Zero loved and lost. I assume the girl was Kaname and Yuuki's daughter (since she says "My mother asked me to tell 'my other father'...) and she was christened Yuka. They both were loved equally and well... Afterwards, Kaname discovers that Yuka is actually his daughter and becomes a surrogate father to both Ichiru and Yuka and they live like a family. Maybe Kaname himself never falls in love again, for Yuka's presence is a constant reminder of his beloved Yuuki...

I really, really wish we could know more about them!

P.S. The thing about them being cold and unresponsive when Yuuki dies (& concluding that she's a bad mother) is BS. I think a millennium is enough time to gain the virtue of self-control and for the kids to be mature enough to understand that their mother felt obligated from a sense of love and not just duty to give a new life to the man she loved, who sacrificed himself for humanity.

I believe that deep down inside Zero really loved people.

I like this rendition of them, though I do think "Yuka's" hair would have been darker, like Kaname's (or the Kuran's) (in the manga she has darker hair then her mother as well). But I love the rest of it. And they joy in their eyes at seeing their 'other father' awaken.

I was really disappointed with the Vk ending but reading your comments gave me a new insight. I still wish we knew more about 'Ichiru' and 'Yuka' but your scenarios are pretty good.

There is a chapter 93.5 Spoiler: Yuuki has a dream of Kaname as a human and he is sitting in a rocking chair holding his baby and embracing the sun with the most pure and joyful smile I've ever seen on his face.  That was an extremely great moment for me. ^/_^

In the midst of all these complaints about Yuki not loving Zero or being a bad mom or blah blah, people are forgetting one thing;

Since when do Purebloods regularly express emotion?

Throughout the entire series, The other characters have made it clear that Purebloods "are like dolls." They don't regularly show emotion, and they certainly have never broken down into tears at the death of their loved ones. When Kaname was a child and his parents died, he felt very very sad, but he didn't cry.

I think everyone is being a little too "human" on this subject, and we are criticizing beings who are NOT human for not behaving how a human would be have. Why would they? They're Pureblood vampires. They can feel incredible sadness and not show it on the outside.

Now that I'm done ranting, these two are adorable, and I love the names you picked out. I always imagined the girl being named Yuri, though. As a mix of Yuki and Juri's names, and also as a tribute to Yori, her old friend.

Well pointed out! I think in the midst of the overflow of 'human' emotions when the final chapter came out, most readers forgot to consider this aspect of the matter.

Yeah, Yuri's a great suggestion. I recently thought of 'Kanako.' ^_^

Thanks a lot! :iconblushyplz:

At least a couple of us remember that fact. I may do a rant on this topic later.

Maybe Kanako could be her middle name. And would she have Zero's last name or Kaname's?

I see it more as they are both Zero's and Yuki's children. But she had them both see Kaname as another father figure. :) In my opinion, she loved them both equally and when Zero died, there was nothing left for her in the world to do but make that sacrifice so that the other man she loved could have a happy human life of his own. I thought that was a very bittersweet ending <3 I actually liked it very much.

I couldn't help but feel that both zeki and yume fans got played. Here is Yuuki, who marries Zero, has his child and spends a millennium with him and in the end, sacrifices herself for Kaname's happiness. The only part I genuinely liked in the final chapter are the last two pages.

Yes, the thing about the children is a possibility. But to me, Yuuki's attitude after the time skip seemed rather like she just wanted to hang around till Kaname's research was complete and she could resurrect him. Instead of leading a vacant existence, she chose to "go with" Zero and be happy in the time being. I'm not saying she didn't care for Zero or her children... rather the need to help Kaname remained foremost as she couldn't stop him fromthrowing his heart into the furnace.

I suppose you could see it that way. But it's more like she had thousand of years living with Zero, having kids, and being in love, and at the same time she presided over the research for Kaname, for me from what I saw. After she lived the rest of her happy life and her husband died, her children were grown, and she had nothing else left to do but that mission she gave herself. So she happily ended her life to give Kaname a new one, a clean slate. :)

what if the boy has zero colour hair of his mum and the child has purple eyes like zero i mean the girl , we don't know what colour are both eyes and hair of the kids

That's true. But since I feel that the girl is Yuuki and Kaname's child, so I coloured her hair and eyes in the Kuran style. The boy's hair was left white in the manga, that's why I favoured him in Zero's colouring.

my fave is the one where Kaien, Yuki and Zero go on vacation to a tropical island. Zero scres the crap outta them and pass's out from the heat. Kaien says they should bring Kaname next time and Yuki chucks a mango at him. lol i think that was in the back off vol 7.

I was hearing though with more debate on that of her being Yuuki and Kanames child that it was translated wrong and suppose to say "our" and not "my" but I have no idea. So many vague ideas out there flying around xD Could be true, could be just a fan idea for some compensation. We may never know ^.^

Though I sooo seriously do want the real story of the in between and there after. I'm currently having fun reading fan stories.

I read about the supposed mistranslation as well but I don't buy it. As far as I'm concerned, the girl is Kaname and Yuuki's child while the boy is Zero and Yuuki's. I may be wrong but as you pointed out, we may never know... Hino sensei really needs to come out with a side story ASAP!

No kidding, and settle all of these disputes!

Though the poorest arguement I've heard though is saying the girl looks like Kaname. Oorrr guys she looks like her mother Yuuki, but ya know, Kuran, so... similarities yea? I'm not saying its a reason to rule that one out or that it's wrong I just think it is such poor reasoning. lol

I too think that the girl resembles Yuuki more... and because of that, she could very well be Zero's child. But I tend to believe otherwise.

Despite the ambiguity in the last chapter, I feel Yuuki loved Kaname more, no? Because she made the ultimate sacrifice for his sake.

It's a possibility, either or, in all honesty. Maybe it is so that she did as well.
