I'm sorry, but I haven't played a lot of Kingdom of Hearts lately. Who is Saix?
| Mirae-no-sekai chapter 3 . 4/21/2013
Hehehe, 3 Genie and his anachronisms. Nice way to add that bit of his character in! And lawl at Aladdin and Jaz being all cute and stuff, Disney feels :)
Saaaaaiiiiiiiiii! And ROFL, him being all businesslike with the whole heartless on the loose.
'"I have no intention of fighting this Heartless. I am on reconnaissance."' xD He's never Heard of munny then, or he scared the Moogle off putting prices for him.
I will never tire of your Jasmine's canon bravery. She is so awesome! Being willing to stand up facing a humongous Heartless & Saix because she worries is heartwarming and wheee.
... hooboy, Sai went berserk xP
And ROFL, the crowd! Best reaction :D And Saix's reaction is appropriate, yessir. Good luck passing that off as stealth Mr. Serious!
... hahahahahahahaha, Jasmine's line, omgrofl, whee! Tease him more, he needs to get de-zombified too. And awww, he's Kitten now!
Not really confusing... I guess I always thought of 'In Music' as an AU (within more AUs?), since I don't imagine Jasmine would really get to shuffle around the worlds. She'd be worrying about Agrabah and Genie going off a bit too much with the help and stuff. Or trying to keep her cops off Al. Cute anyways :)
And yay, at least you got something done! And life comes in cycles, they'll stop being vicious soon. Nothing stays bad forever, the good also comes calling. *hug* and wish you all the luck/time!

I’ll skip the ramble about me being a fail reviewer and skip straight to the review now. *smile/sweatdrop*
Yay, an update to this! 8D
Hee, it’s fun to see Genie’s strangeness described in words. XD
“Heh, I didn't free him from one kind of slavery just to let him get roped into another." I like Aladdin’s reasoning there.
“She kissed him, and wished she could have done it longer before a couple of passing workers made catcalls and prompted them to pull away from each other in embarrassment.” XD XD And the worker’s apologies afterwards just made that better.
Saïx’s calmness is funny juxtaposed with everyone else’s panic. xP But it’s just another work day for him.
"I have no intention of fighting this Heartless. I am on reconnaissance." XD XD XD That’s Saïx, alright…
Jasmine’s really smart. And somewhat reckless. I like the description of Saïx’s fighting, especially from Jasmine’s POV.
Lol, Jasmine’s almost-flirting is amusing. xP And so is the comparison between Jasmine and Aladdin.
| HawkRider chapter 3 . 4/18/2013
I wonder which of us has the most distressing life...
Well, this was a fun chapter. Man, Jasmine is brave. I would have probably pushed Saix towards the Heartless.
Hmm... I wonder what those Heartless were... Maybe the Volcano and Blizzard Lords... or maybe some others. The Antlion may have been one, actually... Since that's the only boss Heartless you meet in Agrabah in Days.
Well, anyway. Thiswas a great entry. I really enjoyed it! I hope you can get your life back in order soon (I have no money either... It's slightly depressing, I know...)
| Ybs chapter 3 . 4/18/2013
I LOVE PLATONIC LOVE! You are really one of the best writers of it out there, ESPECIALLY in this fandom! It's so darn hard to find fics that have platonic love as you portray it. I really hope that you stick to your guns and don't get pressured into writing something you don't like. I'm right behind you buddy!
Until next time,
| bkwrmnlvnit chapter 2 . 2/3/2013
Whoa! Gotta say, for some reason, Saix is the kind of person I don't ship with ANYONE under ANY circumstances. I have to give you kudos for this because of that, since it was well written and fairly believable. It's kind of cool in your fics, you go through and have even their lack of feelings feel, if that makes any sense. Either way, great work and thanks for posting!
| Yukiko-Berrie chapter 1 . 10/13/2012
This pairing, I've never heard of it till now.I can see it working though, Jasmine always teasing and making Saïx feel out of his comfort zone XD I though this was very sweet and really enjoyed reading!
| HawkRider chapter 2 . 8/22/2012
Yeah, this pairing actually can work... Almost scary...
Anyway, that was a great chapter! I'd love to know the lead-up to it...
| HawkRider chapter 1 . 8/22/2012
Try Nyx's-Angel. She's got a Forgotten Pairings challenge.
I was sort of sceptical about this pairing when I first heard of it, but now... Well...
Lets just say that I don't hate my curiosity about this.
| Noel the Mermaid chapter 2 . 7/31/2012
Um hello... This pairing is so cute, I love it... The description form is great and you made it feel so real XD... I hope you can update more chapters soon, please.
| Taliax chapter 2 . 7/9/2012
Yaaaay, more SaiJaz! 8D It's so crackish, but it's actually just below TerQua if I was to put the pairings I like in order. Which makes it number three. Wow.
I have the same problem (Jasmine's supposed to be with Aladdin) in BtI... I still haven't decided exactly how the SaiJaz is going to end up in that since I know Aladdin exists in that universe, but I'd really rather Saix in Jasmine stay together... It's an AU, I shouldn't OCD so much. *sweatdrop* I might actually make Aladdin related to her somehow.
"slightly less of a monotone than usual" XD XD XD Oh, Saix.
"He had never had a fondness for this odd place, full of music and vibrant colors and mythological beings and a distinct lack of adherence to the laws of physics." ...Fantasia? Is that right? What are they doing there?
"He was now starting to decide that if he still had a heart, he would hate it." Lol, Saix is already starting with the "if I had a heart" stuff. XD
"I assure you, Princess, I am not usually this incompetent. I'm starting to think that such close proximity to my subordinates these last few days have had an adverse effect on me-" XD XD FTW. Incompetence is contagious. XD
"He - almost - remembered what it was like to be startled when he felt her small hands on his shoulders." Saix, I'm pretty sure you're in denial. XP
"He should have been prepared for anything, like he always was. But now he and the Princess of Heart under his protection were trapped inside a measure of sheet music, separated from their partners, with no safe way to escape." Well, that stinks. :/ But hey, at least he has good company. :P
I like the Blizzard Shard reference, it's fun to use items for something other than their intended purpose.
"He was already unzipping his coat - the way she watched him do it made him suddenly uncomfortable, so he turned away to finish and then pulled his arms free of it." Poor Saix, everything ends up more awkward than it needs to be for him.
D'aww, I like how much Jasmine cares about him even though he's supposed to be the one protecting her. :3
""Kitten Eyes," she said deliberately, making him sigh internally, "you only have one coat."" XD Saix keeps getting afflicted with obnoxious nicknames.
"I'll tell Axel and Demyx and Xigbar all my nicknames for you." XD XD XD So she's gotten to know the Org, heh. That's a pretty good threat to use on Saix.
"Hmmmm, let me think, why in the world would I waste two seconds worrying about the man who's saved my life multiple times by now, has dedicated the past two weeks to getting me safely back home, who nearly drowned himself to rescue Rajah, and who is so incredibly fun to tease-" Are you going to write any backstory to this? It sounds really interesting. I love Jasmine's characterization here, too.
"It's a job. Nothing more." Saix, you are practically drowning in denial. XD *smacks him*
""Uh huh. That's why you gave me this back in the Dwarf Woodlands, right?" She tugged the flower out of her hair and twirled it meaningfully. / "You're reading too much into that."" *SQUEE* What did he /expect/ her to think about that? X3
"All right, fine, you hate me." I love their banter. X3
"I can't hate you. I can't lo- like you. I don't have a heart to feel anything with, therefore what I feel for you is complete neutrality. Obviously." I SEE WHAT YOU ALMOST DID THERE, Sai! XD Still. Denial. It's everywhere.
"She was shivering. Well, of course she would be, in that ridiculous desert getup of hers." Yeah, that doesn't provide a whole lot of cover... *sweatdrop*
""Thank you, Kitten," she murmured, pulling the coat close around herself and snuggling into his shoulder. / "How many times have I told you not to call me that." / "I've lost count," she said mischievously." D'awww I love how you write this pairing.
Huh, that's an interesting note about the plastic wrapper. Of course they wouldn't have that kind of thing in Agrabah, it's cool that you draw attention to that.
""You need to eat more, anyway," he said in disapproval, surveying her dangerously narrow waist." Heh, I bet he's used to telling Axel that. XD
""It's rude to stare at a lady's bare flesh like that," she said, though she sounded more amused than offended. / "Is it?" Not that he would know. He hadn't really had any experience with girls before losing his heart. "That argument is not very convincing when you prance around in an outfit that barely covers your top." He reached to zip up the coat over the smooth, dark skin under discussion. The way she watched him do it was a little disconcerting. ...Would have been, if he was still capable of being disconcerted." I just want to put a FTW stamp over all of that, for Jasmine's amusement, Saix's cluelessness, his logic about her needing to wear more clothes, and the resulting awkward. And of course, more denial. He seems to keep getting worse and worse at denying things, though. xP I'm glad Saix is somewhat of a gentleman and wants her to cover up better.
"Ahh, so you have been looking." / "What?" Poor, poor Saix. XD
"Your face barely changes, you know. Your voice, too. But I think that's just what you do to hide...as I've discovered over the past few weeks, there's so much more underneath." / "I don't hide." Lol, that's pretty close to how I wrote part of their conversation in BtI. I think Jasmine likes trying to figure him out.
""I was reading your diary the other night," she said casually. "You wrote this one cute entry about how you and your best friend used to-" / "You read my what?"" Poor, poor Saix. XD XD XD XD
"You read my- They're called Secret Reports, by the way, not 'diaries.'" / "It's the same thing, isn't it?" XD XD XD *hugs Saix* *claymore'd* *doesn't care*
"It bothered him, forget not having a heart." Non-denial! :D
"Not-nervous. Only name for this sensation, since of course he couldn't be nervous." Aaaand more denial. *thwacks Saix*
"Have you ever been kissed, Mr. Luna Diviner?" *squees on the inside*
'Don't do this to me. It's not worth it.' *cries for Saix* He wants to know what it feels like, and he can't feel anything, so it's uselessly disappointing... ;;
""It was that bad?" she exclaimed in disbelief, offended and jerking away. Even with his eyes closed, he managed to keep hold of her wrist. He didn't want to lose her entirely, after all." Poor Jasmine, too, loving a person who is physically incapable of loving her back. ;;
"You would think I'd have more of a reaction to being kissed by the most beautiful woman I've ever seen." 8'3 Saix, ILU. It's so sweet in an indirect sort of way.
""You at least think I'm beautiful?" / "It would be a lie to deny it." / "But you didn't like kissing me." / "...I wish I did," he confessed quietly." I love that. Saix being sweet is like the most adorable thing ever. *heart* It really does mean a lot, coming from him.
"When Axel and Demyx finally found them, the music was once more warm and bright, yet the Princess was still resting comfortably in Number VII's arms. Saïx regretted that slip-up much less than he should have." :3 :D Awesomely adorable ending! I wish more people would write SaiJaz. I can understand why nobody else has before, I mean, it /is/ crack, but it's awesome crack. XD
| The Layman chapter 2 . 7/9/2012
How about we just assume this happens at a point of Jasmine's life before she met Alladin? I don't if that makes it any better or not, but it should at least explain why she did it in the first place (aside from "Kitten Eyes" being nice to her); if it happens before the first Alladin movie, then she'll still have those feelings of repression stewing inside her. Plus someone (most likely her mother) had to have told her what it's like to kiss someone.
You know, something like how the Wookie Life Debt works. (Yeah, totally not serious about that.)
And would it be OK to ask how my gift fic is coming? (Just an either/or answer is fing; I want ot be completely surprised when you do eventually finish it.)
| FireWolfHeart chapter 1 . 6/10/2012
Jaz is so sly. XD She made me laugh.
| Taliax chapter 1 . 2/3/2012
HOLY FLYING ICE CREAM, THIS IS SUCH A CRACK PAIRING... And you wrote it so well it doesn't sound like one. O.o
Poor Saix, he can never work in peace. xP Haha, I like how he has to keep reminding himself ge doesn't have a heart, and how Jasmine's apparently noticed he's been taking out the Heartless. x3
| Kiryn chapter 1 . 2/3/2012
Lulz. I am really just such a terrible influence, aren't I? :p
...Yeah, I totally didn't mean to imply a Saix/Jasmine ship at all. It came up because of a story that Bond and I were both reading that hadn't been finished yet, and I mentioned that my theory of what Saix was off doing at that point in the story was that he was kidnapping Jasmine (it was an AU). So...yeah. That's what was up with that.
Though, you know, you may be able to convince me to start shipping them for real, with this story! ;)
I really love how...understatedly sassy that Jasmine is here, and the end of the fic had me going "Dawwww, how cute..." Plus, it's nice to see the work that Saix is doing acknowledged as having an effect on the people who live in the worlds. Because, yeah, if I was living in Twilight Town, and then I went out one day to see these great big weird barriers all over the place that apparently had no reason to be there, I'd be a bit freaked out, too.
And Rajah really, really needs to show up at some point in the games. Come on, Square, he would make the coolest summon ever!
So, you're off to a very good start here, I would say, even if this story is only for fun. Although, now you have me wanting to pair up ALL of the Princesses of Heart now...Hmm.
Obviously, Terrella, and now we have Saix/Jasmine, and I personally would pair up Demyx/Kairi, so then we'd be left with Snow White, Aurora, Belle, and Alice...
*smacks brain* No, stop it Kiryn. That way lies madness.
...Uh, anyway, I'm gonna stop rambling and wasting space on this review. See ya later! :)
