Anonymous said: If I remember correctly, Roxas fainted in Castle Oblivion because of Sora's memories coming to the surface, which was triggered by Ventus' body and Sora (while sleeping) being there. Was Sora's sleeping body actually there at the time, though? If it had not been moved from there by DiZ before then, then why could Naminé not be found at Castle Oblivion during a search that occurred? Thank you in advance.

They moved themselves out of the castle and began to setup base in twilight town. But it seems Sora himself wasn’t moved until much later. Most likely because DiZ had to build a replica of the room Sora was sleeping in and transport the pod technology over before Sora could be safely shifted. 


Anonymous said: Am I the only one who really doesn't want Xehanort to see the error of his ways and atone in some sort of way in KH3? It just seems like a lazy option to me personally, just further proving that the game series is afraid of killing off characters for real.

I don’t think many people want/expect to happen. At least I don’t hear that suggest often. Xehanort’s a lot of things. Above all he’s an arrogant, self-absorbed ass. Those kinds of dudes don’t usually see the errors of their ways.

Certainly doesn’t mean though every Xehanort needs to end bad. If we have a group of 13 Xehanorts it would add a bit of flavor if one of them ended up rebelling to help us. 


seasaltandcastles said: wouldn't it be cool if you could switch between Sora's party (sora, donald, goofy), Riku's party (riku, aqua, mickey), and Kairi's party (lea, ventus, kairi) throughout KH3? Not like in 3d with timed limits, but kinda like gtav style where you could play for however long you wanted, but you couldn't continue the story unless other characters were "caught up."

That’d be pretty cool. Call me a bit a boring, but I do want to see SDG together more than anyone else. An adventure with those clowns is long overdue. I do want multiple player characters, though. I’m thinking something pretty simple. Get to a certain point with Sora, switch to Kairi, progress to a certain point with her, switch to Riku. And so on. Eventually the teams would come together and awesome sauce stuff goes down.

Of course, that might be a bit difficult to do, what with game balance between a large cast of party members, but it’d offer us a chance to play with a lot of characters.


Anonymous said: Nomura said that teaser showing Xehanort and Eraqus talking would be the beginning of kh3 right? A friend and I were talking about how neat it would be if the start/tutorial of the game were set in the past with you either controlling Xehanort or Eragus though younger, and give foreshadowing of things to be answered during the game. What do you think of that idea and if it were the case, which one do you think we would play as?

That would be really cool like really cool and definitely be a good excuse for a game tutorial. As for who you play as I think that comes down to what they do with Young Xehanort in the game. If they go full on villain with him then Eraqus would probably be the better of the two especially if he plays a role in KH3, and his stance was similar to usual player character’s so it would fit more smoothly into Sora. If Young Xehanort is going to have a change of heart then this would be a good chance to give him a role other than villain or rival. 


Anonymous said: What shipping do you like the most? Roxas x Xion or Terra x Aqua? and why? srry 4 bringing the topic again.

Oh my god. Roxas x Xion. All the way. I throw money at my screen in hopes that becomes a thing. I’m perfectly content with them just being friends; their relationship is beautiful as it is. But it’s in a place where it could exceed the boundaries of “BEST FRIENDS” very easily.

Terra and Aqua don’t even feel like friends. I can’t get behind a pairing for them. It’s one of the many flaws of BBS.


Anonymous said: How do we know how many days passed in the storyline? We know that in Roxas's story it's been a year (358 + 1 week) but how many time does it pass in each game? A month? A very long day? A complete year? What do you guys think?

Well we really don’t we can only get a rough estimate using Days’s timeline. Thanks to its timeline we know that CoM was roughly a month about 25 days or so to be exact. We also know that the time between Sora becoming a heartless and Sora battling Xemnas in Hollow Bastion was about a week 6 days or Sora.

With that latter in mind we can figure that KH1 was probably a couple of months and KH2 is most likely more or less double that so I’d imagine maybe 3-4 months for KH1 and 5-8 months for KH2, perhaps more. BBS I imagine was about as long as KH1 maybe shorter because TAV are more skilled. Coded seemed to be an adventure over in perhaps a matter of hours if maybe a few days at most. While for DDD I’d give it maybe a week? 

I’d think at the either the start or end of DDD it’s been around 12 years after BBS if not I’d think it be around there by the time of KH3. But again this is just guestimate. 


Anonymous said: It's a two-way street. I've also seen plenty of SoKai fans who use "the canon card" to shove their ship down other people's throats and say shipping Sora with anyone else is wrong, and on occasion if the ship is same-sex, disgusting. So it's not just the yaoi/yuri fans.

Absolutely.

Absolutely true. And I apologize for being a bit…strong with my language and tone and only showing one side of the argument.


Anonymous said: Sorry to continue the shipping conversation, but I have to ask, does it not frustrate any of you when people tout some nonsense as canon when it is clearly not? For example, I know people who outright deny that Roxas and Axel are best friends. To them, it is completely canon that they are lovers. A non-shipping example, people who believe the canon Marluxia really is a fruity gay stereotype, and Zexion a mopey whiny emo. I guess I agree with "Mod 2" that blatantly ignoring canon is frustrating.

Mod 2 here. And I agree. I mean if they ship Axel and Roxas, that’s cool. It’s probably one of the stronger ships in the series, I’d say. Though it is a bit one-sided. Just don’t try to shove that opinion down other people’s throats. There’s two ways for two people with differing opinions to explain how they feel about the issue.

Conversation A.  

Person 1. “I think there’s a lot of evidence supporting something more than a friendship between Roxas and Axel. The way Axel goes out of his way to protect Roxas, even prioritizing him over Xion and Saix seems like love to me. And Roxas seems really betrayed when Axel doesn’t open up and be completely honest with him.”

Person 2. “Certainly, that’s one way to put it. But I do think their dependency on one another has more to do with the fact that, by the end of the game, Xion’s gone, Saix is far removed from Axel’s life. They’ve only got eachother.”

That’s healthy. I encourage that.  

Then there’s…

Conversation B

Person 1. “AXUROKKKUUU FOREVAH. DON’T LIKE IT? WELL YOU’RE A GOD DAMN HOMOPHOBE JESUS.”

Person 2. “Can you please, just shut the fuck up you insane fangirl.”

As for the Marluxia and Zexion thing, that’s just people taking their appearances at face-value and applying stereotypes. I don’t want to say that’s pretty fucking ignorant….but it is.

————————————————————————————-

Mod 3 here. Just wanted to note, for the sake of fairness, that I think it’s a bit sad and a bit funny that the post above should talk about it being “fucking ignorant” to “apply stereotypes” when “Conversation B” is just one big, sweeping, over-exaggerated caricature — one big stereotype.

It’s worse in fanfiction. Search SoRiku up. Or AkuRoku. It’s all about Uke and Seme and sex. It’s horrific. I want plot, not just Sora and Riku fucking like rabbits kty.

Not all yaoi/yuri “fangirls” are like this though. I’m more inclined to soft romance and love than porn. If I wanted porn, I’d search it up.

Don’t get me started on the grammar.

Mod 3 speaking again.

You know, I honestly can’t bring myself to condemn those kinds of works, as long as they’re kept far away from the kid fans of the series. Most of them are written by teens and other young adults, people who are just starting to explore the topic of sexuality for the first time, and fan fiction gives them a safe space to do that. A piece of fan fiction is an imaginary space where the writer can experiment with whatever they want, whatever they feel like, without having to worry about actually doing something they might regret like moving too fast, trusting the wrong person, contracting a disease, or God knows what else. I think that when you look at this kind of fan fiction from that point of view — from the point of view of the producer, rather than the consumer — it makes a lot more sense. It’s actually very healthy.

Of course…there’s also fan fiction that isn’t healthy, fan fiction written largely by adults that represents genuinely reckless, dangerous, destructive depravity — see Fifty Shades of Gray for example. And that’s harder to justify, but I think it generally constitutes a minority of the works produced.

For the sake of keeping the blog at least roughly PG-ish, I probably won’t say more than this on the subject, but I felt like this much was important to say.

I just want to issues an apology to anyone who was offended by the original post or some of the earlier ones that were part of this conversation. That was not anyone’s intent and sometimes things get a bit out of hand. We’ve talked behind the scenes about it so something like this hopefully doesn’t happen again.


Anonymous said: I'm wondering if the "I defeated a Riku once" line is a mistranslation. Because the "Tell me why he picked you" line is mistranslated. It should be "Tell me why it (the keyblade) picked you".

I’m guessing not, considering there’s a lot of characters who claim Roxas won at first.

For the record, that Keyblade line isn’t a mistranslation. He was talking about Axel.

——-

The japanese was more vague it was something more along the lines of “why were you chosen” which better applies to Roxas as whole because basically everyone and everything chose Sora over Roxas. Localization just changed it a bit to make it focus on the thing that really upset Roxas, the thing that causes Roxas to finally fight Sora. That thing being Axel’s demise.

It’s not necessarily wrong it’s just a bit more focused is all, sort of a different interpretation.
