In the previous post's comments, ice_cold_soda and I briefly got our knickers in a twist over the fact that no one seems to write good child!Nobody fic because that premise would be outright terrifying in the right hands and we would read the hell out of that.
Since I had a day off yesterday, I decided to go and see if I could find a fic with that.

I did find child-fic, though not Nobody!child-fic
Unfortunately, it wasn't goodfic.

I am going to quote the first bit of that fic now. It's up to you to guess who spoke those lines. If you can guess it right away and not feel your brain try to crawl out of your ears trying to reconcile the mental images, my hat's off to you.

"Okay gang, line up!", said the chief, standing on a big wooden crate. "Last time, we didnt stole much thing and our little bros didn't got much to eat... But hey, we have a new chance now! The circus is making a great big show today and..."

Get it yet?
That was actually Xemnas.
Yes, Xemnas.

Abandon brains here.Collapse )

I read the first chapter in the early afternoon. Then I re-read it because there was no way in hell that I just read that. After that, I got some coffee and sat down for the rest, in a terrible case of bile fascination. After reading the last chapter, I realised I had no idea what the hell I just read.
Is it really that hard to write good kid!fic?

Dunno if anyone still reads these or if everyone ran off to Dreamwidth, but I'ma post this anyway. If there is a Dreamwidth-comm for KH fanstuff rants, please point me towards it.

The previous rant was against people who portray Kairi as a bitch, slut, Clingy Jealous Girl and/or just completely psychopathic.

This rant is about the exact opposite - a fanit portraying a psychopath as a demure young lady who, driven by the circumstances, has to put up a façade of bitchiness as a self-defense mechanism.
Enter Larxene.

*Insert keyboard smash of RAEG here.*Collapse )

tl;dr: proper Larxene-characterisation = U NO CAN HAS, apparently.
Thank you, and goodnight.

I know this will matter much to you, as you've spent a decade ignoring it, but....

Kairi is NOT a Yandere-for-Sora who hates Riku and wants him out of the way. She isn't, never has been, never will be. Please STOP spreading that characterization around in crap like this (drawn by a Sora/Riku fangirl):


And PS: to the KHInsider.com Forum's Kairi Hate Club (who are the main culrpits of characterizing Kairi this way), you have VERY little place hating Kairi for supposedly being hateful toward someone, as frankly, you are some of the most psycopathically hateful people I've ever had the displeasure of encountering online. Your reasoning toward bashing Kairi isn't like the Pot calling the Kettle black; it's like an anti-semite accusing someone of being a Nazi.

As we all know, cancer sucks. It killed Suzuoki Hirotaka in 2006, took Kawakami Tomoko, one of my favorite female seiyuu, a few months ago, and most recently Takiguchi Junpei on August 29th.

But you may be wondering: Why am I bringing this up here?

On October 23rd?Collapse )

Hey, all. (or whoever still hangs around here, i haven't seen a soul here in over a month)

I have to say, I am a little disappointed.
Really, Really Important: Please Everyone Read ThisCollapse )
TL;DR: Please come back and don't let the comms die; we're all sane fans here and I would hate to see a few arguments destroy what's been built.

This isn't much of a rant, but I found this and jnew I had to share it with you all.

APPARENTLY, Xaldin's VA, David Dayan Fisher, had a little...run-in with the law. He's now in jail for 'allegedly' beating the crap out of his neighbor over some towels. ...Yeah.

This amuses me to no end.

The Xaldin-in-jail jokes that could be made here will be left unsaid.

Believe it or not, slash is not ruining the fandom, and things won't be instantly better if slash suddenly disappeared. Trust me, I've read enough Sora/Kairi fics that turn Riku into a terrible person to be sure the problem runs deeper than that. (And that's a rant for another day.)

Characters that were only friends in the games are not "out of character" if they're a couple in a fanfic.

Making a character hetero-/homo-/bi-/pan-/a-sexual doesn't make them out of character.

I would say more, but I think the above puts my opinion out there in the most succinct way I can manage. Agree or disagree, just let me enjoy my pairings (and friendships) in peace, please.

Protip: a character isn't stupid, being written stupid, or being 'dumbed down' for not having the near omnipresent access to the story like the player, reader or writer does.

Characters can be considered lacking intelligence for plenty of reasons but not possessing precognition, mind reading or omnipotence are really not among them and dear ranter it is most definitely not bad writing to take into consideration the character's limited view point.

Subtitled: Why there is no hope left for this person.

You all remember that girl from the original part whose Sue waltzed into Xemnas' room and demanded a job, right? Course you do.
You also remember Literate's sheer epic win at Xemnas and him telling her, basically, to fudge off right the fudge now.

You all seem want to know what's going to happen next.
Who is this creature? (Who?)
What is she? (What?)
How did she respond to this? (How?)
Hush! (Aww...)
And Anderling will tell you.

Another loooong rant. Yay LJ-cuts!Collapse )Someone, anyone, please shoot me now before the Stupid gets to me too.
