My name is Lils. I've gone through a fair number of identity changes on this site and others - lilymalfoy, lysrouge, tehlils, lilsorz and now flashily.
I'm a connoisseur of music, though my tastes are not as discriminating as others expect of one. I believe variety is the spice of life and music should be enjoyed for what is, not what it could be. Just one look at my last.fm library is enough to see I listen to a little bit of everything.
I am just as eclectic in my tastes for movies, books, anime, manga, video games, fic, food, everything... Life is to be explored and enjoyed to it's fullest. I make it my goal to try something new whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Shameless fan of Kingdom Hearts AUs, especially of the high school and college variety. A fic I read recently, Ballad inspired me to pick up the fic I had started over a year ago and work on it again. The direction had changed drastically from what it had started as and became something so completely overwhelming that I set it aside. Now you can read it as the work in progress, Rise to Fame.
Full Summary for Rise to Fame:
Sometimes hitting it big isn't easy. Sometimes it is. Sometimes it comes down to pure chance and being in the right place at the right time. It's always hard work. Three bands from three cities meet in a Battle of the Bands competition and embark on a journey together through the trials and tribulations of the music industry. Axel/Saïx with eventual Axel/Roxas, Sora/Riku and several other pairings. Great big music industry AU set mostly in Chicago with stops in Detroit, Anaheim, and other locations across the United States. Takes place in the year 20XX. Rated M for sex, drugs & rock and roll.

I'm not going to list all the music I listen to while writing cause it's a lot, it varies and it's all on last.fm
Rise to Fame: Band Influences
This guy talks too much, but it's some good information on the Rogue electric sitar: link
Demyx has a Rogue electric sitar, an NS/Stick set to bass tunings, a basic electric guitar, an electric acoustic guitar tuned to produce sitar-like sounds, multiple effects pedals and does a lot of eight-finger tapping. Youtube has many many examples of these.
Saïx has a drum kit with the standard rock setup. Naminé has a keyboard, synth and sampler that she uses.
Roxas's has bass pickups on his electric guitars and he utilizes effects pedals. Xion has drum kit with the standard rock setup.
I wanted to show some good examples of the surf rock influenced punk rock, but Paopu is fun SoCal pop-punk with a hint of that surf punk sound.
Riku has a few bass guitars. Kairi has a few electric guitars and utilizes effects pedals. Sora has a drum kit with the standard rock setup.
I hope all of this gives you a clearer picture of their sounds.
