Warning: I have very mouthy muses. If you try to contact me, you may get one of them instead.

Yes, I have a deviantArt account. No, I don't post any fan fiction OR fanart on it. I do fractals. Fractals, capice? Fractals!

New deviantArt account for fanfiction only: vanshirakasores.deviantart.com


I am not going to edit or change my stories to come in line with game canon as of 358/2. I've been working with my versions of the characters for too long, I highly suspect I'll continue to prefer them to Squisney's, and I'm not going to delete two years' worth of stories or change up my entire storyline just because they suddenly changed their minds about telling us the Organization's pasts. If they already had their pasts in mind, they should have offered them straight-up, instead of leaving so much to imagination and letting fan-artists and fan-authors have so much leeway only to crush us now. Besides, my FAN-character Xanrivash is less of a Mary-Sue than the CANON character Xion, and I think Demyx is a better friend for Axel and Roxas than Xion is anyway. And you couldn't pay me to get rid of Fori. Or Duaxas, or Nakrixiast, or Gaxida, or any of half-a-dozen OCs that only see the light of day in my own mind.

tl;dr: Screw you, Squisney. You can't force me to be canon.

Note: Anyone who contacts me to complain that my characters are off-canon will be heartily ignored. That is not a mistake, I don't care that I'm off canon, I will not change my characters to come in line with canon, and being told that I don't have the right to write as I please makes me bitchy. I don't care how much effort you put into being polite about it. If you want to be polite, don't hit the send button.


I play the music that I find
Written where my heart should be
To the beat of what is lost
In the key of my insanity...

-Demyx Ghatori


Various weird facts about the Organization:

Xemnas has a coffeemaker on his desk. It runs about 8 hours a day. Also, he wouldn't drink convenience-store coffee if you paid him.
Xigbar is a gearhead with a thing for classic cars. He's converted half of one of the huge basement storage rooms to a garage.
Xaldin has the other half of said basement storage room, and uses it as a microbrewery. He makes some pretty good beer, too, but he's not good at sharing it.
Vexen is a better shot than Xigbar is. He gets very little use out of this skill, unfortunately.
Lexaeus has a thing for blankets. They're draped over every logical surface in his room, plus a few folded up and piled in corners. He also lends them out a lot.
Zexion may bend the truth so much it comes out looking like Origami compared to how it started, but he only lies outright when he's caught reading in the bathroom.
Saix wouldn't take the Superior's job if you asked him. The last group he led was pretty much all eaten by Heartless, which kind of destroyed his faith in his own leadership skills.
Axel is a licensed bartender. Ironic, but it could be handy if he needs some extra munny sometime.
Demyx is scared of ants. He'll eat them if they're properly prepared, but if he sees them alive, he'll either squish them or flee.
Luxord hates slot machines. They're (pretty much) the only casino game where there's no way for the player to affect or predict the outcome.
Marluxia will eat botanical fruits, but no other plant matter if he can help it. Reason: Fruits are meant to be eaten, the rest of the plant isn't. (He tries not to think about bread.)
Larxene owns a grand total of one teddy bear. It looks like a black Care Bear with pierced ears and a skull on its belly. She mostly throws it around the room during temper tantrums.
Roxas is a big fan of Sherlock Holmes. He's also kind of into Agatha Christie, but he prefers the original master detective.


The Organization Thinks You're Stupid

Object: Guess which member said what, and note me with your answers. If you guess right, you get a cookie and your username on my profile, as long as you don't give it away. (I left my OCs out, partly because Xanrivash's accent would give her away, and of course, there is no Xion.)

Hint: One member is in the right order. Everyone else is out of order.

1. It's been fun, but now, for both our sakes, I think it's best if this conversation never happens again.
2. ...My apologies. My thoughts had wandered down more intellectual paths. Of course, there may be no other sort of path.
3. They really do come that stupid. I'd wondered.
4. I'm sorry, but I feel the need for more intelligent conversation. This wall might suffice.
5. Congratulations on having successfully wasted far more of my valuable time than you have ever been worth.
6. Before we go on, if I continue listening to you, will I be compensated for unnecessary exposure to stupidity?
7. I'm sorry, but I really feel sick right now...I think I just got a massive overdose of stupidity.
8. Silence is golden...sadly, that was lead.
9. It's incredible! Whenever you open your mouth, it's like the purest fail comes raining from the sky! It would be a miracle if it was a good thing!
10. I've heard stupider things, but never from anyone sober.
11. Can we keep the unnecessary stupidity to a minimum from here on out?
12. Thank you for the fascinating insight into the processes of the barely-functional mind.
13. Wow...you didn't seem that stupid before you opened your mouth.

Cookie winners so far: xcupidxstuntx, Yuki no Iro, Twiliteyes93


"Demyx grabbed the sheets of music he'd just written and started playing the composition in its entirety for the first time. His expression was strangely peaceful and contented, as if he didn't need a heart to feel happiness as long as he had his music. Ironic that he was profoundly deaf. But existence had already played a cruel joke on Nobodies in general; one more hardly made a difference."

Deaf!Demyx is one resilient man.


Why does Axel have diabetes? I woke up one morning and asked "Why is Axel so skinny? He's got way too much self-esteem for an eating disorder..."

I've kept my fire insurance up-to-date ever since.


"Whether a man bows down to God or Mammon or to Cthulhu in his dark house at R'lyeh is no affair of mine...until he sheds one drop of blood not his own in his deity's name. Then God have mercy upon him, for I shall not."

Doctor: This is one of those times when I really wish I hadn't thrown out the TARDIS manual.
Demyx: ...So...what's it going to take to fix it this time?
Doctor: An awful lot of parts I don't have and don't know if I'll be able to get without working navigation circuits.
Demyx: Well, I can offer you three sitar strings and the mechanism from a counterfeit Tag Heuer.
Doctor: ...Oh, that's brilliant! You should have mentioned that earlier! Hand 'em over, I'll take 'em!
Demyx: ...Gods above, Doc, I was joking...fuck, here. Take the watch.
Doctor: Brilliant. Now I'll need those sitar strings and...that little cylinder you wear around your neck that you keep pills in. I'll need that too. Not the pills. Just the cylinder.
Demyx: ...Do you want my artificial hand too, Doctor MacGyver?
Doctor: Worst comes to worst, I might have to borrow a few gears.

Anyone who portrays Demyx as a spaz, an imbecile, or ADHD has no idea what it takes to play sitar. Get one.
