Saïx tried to explain it to me once. Something about how a Nobody is nothing but pure instinct, a pure longing to be whole again.
This whole being a nobody business is a tricky one—I don’t like to think about it too much because it makes my head hurt.
But if I have to think about it, I’d say maybe our alliance stems from the fact that our …. I mean Lea and Isa’s… friendship was so strong. Maybe somewhere in our instincts we know that restoring ourselves to our former state means restoring that friendship too.
Man, I don’t really know—this is depressing to think about, which is why I don’t do it.
Our alliance is no longer ruled by the “friendship” of our former selves. It is now ruled by the desire to form a common goal. It is the most logical option at this point in time for us to work together. How “inseparable” we are depends on how much we need each other’s skills.
So at this point, you could say that we are still in an alliance.
Dude, do you think I haven’t already tried to get a movie night going? The first attempt was SUCH a disaster, let me tell you:
Larxene tried to get us to watch some movie about saws, but part way into it Roxas just started FREAKING out and Axel demanded we switch to a movie about revenge and some guy in a mask (I only remember the title had some letter in it, but it had a lot of explosions, typical of Axel).
But then EVERYONE started fighting over which movie to watch. Marluxia wanted something about a shop and a carnivorous plant, Luxord wanted something involving drunk friends in Las Vegas, Xigbar wanted this, Xaldin wanted that, it was a complete mess until Saïx told us all to shut up.
Well, not in so many words—he kind of said it with his claymore.
After that, we all quietly drew lots, and Vexen won. We had to sit through a two hour documentary about icebergs.
Hmph. I liked Atlantica before it got all songified. My favorite world is probably Port Royal.
Haha, you only like Port Royal because of all the treasure, Donald. As for me …
Hmm, well, we’ve been to a bunch of worlds and made a lot of friends but something just keeps pulling me back to Twilight Town. It’s been really significant in our journey so far and other than Destiny Islands, it feels the most like home to me. A small part of me gets really sad whenever we have to leave it.
So other than my home I guess that’s my favorite world.
Terra? Who’s that? I’ve never met anyone who’s introduced themselves as Terra…..
……but you know, now that you mention it, the name does sound oddly familiar. I know I’ve never heard that name before, but I feel like I’ve met someone before …. someone who was lost and struggling with themselves like I was …… maybe I’ve just forgotten …
Well, truthfully I was really mad about it at first. XD Cos I REALLY liked his long hair so when I saw it short I was just like, “RIKUUUU!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!” x] Cos I’m melodramatic like that. But honestly it’s not that bad and I’ve kind of gotten used to it.
So yes, it is a little weird, but I still like it. :)
The redhead didn’t like it at first, but I have always liked Riku’s haircut. Maybe it’s because in Japanese culture (considering Kingdom Heart’s origin), a haircut is very symbolic and represents a fresh start, which I thought was appropriate and fitting. I’m looking forward to character development. :)
In this organization, friendship is of little importance. We have no hearts with which to form bonds. Members only need to work with each other on the basis of completing their work and most of the members are not what you would call “friends“. However, I have indeed noticed some alliances within the ranks.
It is true that I once was “chummy“ with Axel, but many things have happened since we’ve joined the organization and …. he has changed quite a bit. At any rate he now prefers to spend most of his time loafing around with Roxas.
As for the other members of the organization, Demyx enjoys talking to Luxord. The two of them are often seen playing cards. Of course, Luxord always wins. I am almost positive that Demyx owes him a large sum of munny by now. Demyx also has a favorite pastime of bothering Zexion and believe me when I say that I will never understand why Zexion puts up with it.
Zexion and Lexaeus seem to be good friends, probably because they both share a similar quiet demeanor.
And Marluxia and Larxene always seem to be in a corner plotting something…
These are the strongest ties within the organization that I have noticed.
My claymore may be too big for you to handle, but you probably don’t have what it takes to wield it anyway.
Our letter carrier was confused as to whose inbox to deposit this in, so he handed it to me. After thinking about it for while, I decided to ask around. Most of them had never heard either of them sing, so Kairi suggested we have a contest and leave it up to a vote.
I’m not sure how it happened, but it turned into this big scheduled event, and everyone got really excited about it, except for Roxas who eventually hid in one of the restrooms when Larxene turned hostile (only because Luxord had somehow set up a betting pool and she had apparently put down quite a bit for him to win; didn’t know she cared so much).
Axel eventually coaxed him out with some sea-salt icecream.
Here are the results:
We did however also get a vote for, “I LOVE HIM AND HIS BEAUTIFUL SOUL”
Do you think I would’ve joined this group if gender was something I cared about? Sex means nothing to me—there are those who are weak, and those who aren’t. That’s why Marluxia and I are trying to dominate the Organization. That’s really the extent of my relationship with him. Or did you forget that I’m a nobody? No hearts, remember? Come on, it’s not that hard.
Naminé means nothing to me. If she’s weak enough to let us use her, then she only deserves it.
…..and let’s just say that I’ve seen enough of Demyx to last my entire non-existent life-time.
Well, we’ve been friends since before I can even remember, so that might be a little awkward for me.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time I’ve been asked something like this, so I guess that just means it’s obvious that we’ve known each other for so long? I wouldn’t want our friendship to get ruined if things didn’t work out, but I think with how close we are now, I think we’d be okay if that was the case.
So, to answer your question, I guess I wouldn’t mind trying.
I became a heartless for Kairi, and I dropped everything to look for Riku when he closed the door to darkness. Both of my journeys were for both of them; the first for Kairi, and the second for Riku. I guess I got involved in some other stuff along the way, but it was always first and foremost for my friends. So yeah, it was a big deal when I found him.
When I woke up and found that a year had passed, I couldn’t believe how much time I had just lost. I believed that Kairi was safe on Destiny Islands. Even after she got kidnapped, I kind of had an idea of where she was, and how to rescue her. But I didn’t know anything about Riku’s whereabouts—that whole journey, I didn’t even know if he was even alive. So what if I got a little emotional finding out that he was alright.
….You’re probably gonna interpret this however you want, but…sure, yeah I love Riku.
But I love Kairi just as much! Both of them are my precious friends—please don’t ever say that one of them means less to me than the other.
Excuse Ienzo, he’s a rather quiet boy. I’m sure he’ll be fine by the next time he gets a letter, he just needs a little time to adjust to this whole business. But really, he’s a very well-behaved boy, so I’ve never really had the need to be very strict with him. He mostly keeps to himself and doesn’t really interact with the others, other than myself and Aeleus.
Surprisingly, the two have taken a real shine to each other. I think it’s because they both share a similar quiet intensity.
Ha! Finally, something I’ve done has actually paid off.
But ya see, I can’t just abandon the phrase. I’m not shouting it at you anymore, but I am still shouting it at all the other people who don’t have it memorized yet. So congrats on being ahead of the game.
*sigh* Why is this always the first question people ask upon meeting me?
Yes, this is my natural hair color.
Apparently, my mother was a victim of Red Dye no. 5. During her pregnancy she would eat nothing but red skittles …. this apparently had some effect on a part of my genetic makeup.
That was the explanation that was always given to me. Of course, it may have simply been a pathetic attempt at a joke that was never clarified to me as such, but either way it doesn’t really matter. My hair is of little concern to me in the grand scheme of things.
AAA was also my inspiration to look around for a Kingdom Hearts askblog. Imagine my disappointment (but also enthusiasm) when I found there wasn’t one! Hopefully we meet your expectations.
We’re very excited to be doing this, so yes, keep the letters coming! :)
Yeah, the Brunette was facebooking me one day and was like, “…. I kinda wanna start an “Ask Kingdom Hearts” blog.” Cos we both enjoyed the “Ask Ace Attorney” blog so much and we love KH. And I said we should totally do it and the next thing I know it happened. :) The internet is great like that.
Letter spam is very welcome, btw. :3 Sora and co. look forward to answering your questions.
