Title: Merry Christmas Demyx
Author: dreamninja (FF.net)
Fandom: Kingdom Hearts series
Rating: Geez, where to begin? The beigest of beige prose, lack of punctuation, defying Santa Claus’ canon existence in the KH ‘verse, OOC so severe it’s laughable, surprise!Leonard Cohen songfic… Thankfully, it’s short.
Full Name (including any titles): Larxene and Demyx, with appearances from Axel, Xigbar and Luxord.
Full Species(es): Nobody and Nobody, with appearances from Nobody, Nobody and Nobody.
Hair Color (include adjectives): As canon
Eye Color (include adjectives): As canon
Unusual Markings/Colorations/Physical Features: A lack of Santa Claus
Special Possessions (if any): Christmas wishlists, the lyrics to Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, playing cards, and new sitar strings.
Origin: Holiday glurge gone wrong
Connections To Canon Characters: A bunch of kids below ten cosplaying them
Special Abilities: They can talk to each other without punctuation marks!
Other Annoying Traits: Demyx is a five-year-old trapped in a twenty-something’s body, Larxene’s Larxene-ness is significantly lacking, the sudden and not at all appropriate appearance of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ (because who in the heck thinks that being told Santa doesn’t exist merits that, of all things?), THE LACK OF PUNCTUATION AAAARGH.
I Say/Notes: I admit: I ship Demyx/Larxene.
Don’t judge me. It’s my Kingdom Hearts OTP, always has been and always will be. I like to think that, if in the hands of a good author, they’d have an interesting dynamic, like say as two adults who pretty much hate each other’s guts yet somehow find common ground occasionally, and are aware that they’re both pretty horrible people but just shrug it off and have some weird, twisted rapport with each other every now and then. Or at least, that’s how I’d see it. *coughandhotfrenemysmuttoocough*
I’ve recently fallen back into the fandom and along with it I’ve fallen back with these two as well; and for laughs and profit I decided to see if there were badfics for the pairing (aside from the one thelectureroom covered last time, that one was pretty bad but quality sporking!), considering how rare it is. And of course, FF.net doesn’t disappoint. *sigh*
Though, I have to ask… Why are people so fond of making Demyx a giant toddler? Sure he’s a lazybones who complains about work a lot, and no doubt he’s had a good deal of immature moments (as twenty-somethings do), but I don’t think he’d break down and cry over being told that Santa Claus isn’t real. (Which doesn’t make sense in the first place since Santa Claus does exist in the KH ‘verse; you’d think the Organization would know this.) Larxene herself is way too tame for comfort here, too.
Also, it’s February.
Please forgive me if my characterization’s not the best
and if my shipper streak’s become too blatant :P, it’s been a while since I’ve played the games and I still have a lot of catching up to do.
(Also, there seems to be some font issue somewhere in the middle of the fic; I'm not sure how to fix it. DX)
Someone please rec me good DemLarx after this ;___;
