I think you and I are on the same wavelength. LOL. I actually made a picture a long time ago that was (kind of) in support of the Roxas/Accessory Shop Girl pairing ([link]
). I mean, he was her favorite customer. And Roxas looked "happy" in the picture with the "girl" (I'm shamelessly stealing Olette and Hayner's lines about it). I mean, those are hints, but does anyone remember her or ship her? No. I feel her pain!
In all honesty, I'm glad you included her. You're right. KH doesn't have enough girls (which is why I was hoping MF was a girl in disguise, but alas it's young Xehanort). I'd actually meant to write a story with her, but after writing a Roxas drabble with her (the link to which can be found in the above picture's description, if you're curious), I realized it'd be too difficult. I'm glad someone else has taken up the challenge, though! And I'm glad that someone's you. I love all your stories. They're so hilarious!
Also, I feel like Olette's a spy. After all, people used to ship her with Roxas, too. But that also crashed and burned. She's secretly working with the Accessory Shop Girl! LOL.
Roxas has WAY too many girlfriends. I mean, Olette, Naminé, Xion, the Accessory Shop Girl, some people ship him with Kairi (which makes a bit of sense, I guess); and I think I've even seen some Roxas/Aqua (though, technically, I think most people that do that have the flawed idea that, "he's Ven, so..."). Yep. I definitely feel the Accessory Shop Girl's pain. LOL.
Anyway, I'm really enjoying this story. And I'd love to see you do something with it. Because even though I love Wedding and Switched to death, it's sort of nice to see a story of yours that's closer to the current KH timeline. And I'm just a sucker for Xion and Aqua. They're my fav KH girls.
And might I say, thank you for not being biased when it comes to Xion/Roxas/Naminé. I mean, honestly. You can ship both. Days made me more of a Roxas/Xion fan (even though I'd liked Roxas and Nami in KH2). I mainly prefer Roxas and Xion just because we've seen more with them. But I still like both pairings. I just see it as: Roxas and Xion were in love, but she sadly died. And then after that, Roxas met Nami and fell for her. That doesn't mean he loves any girl less; he just moved on like anyone in real life probably would. And you can't even say it's unethical because, sadly, he doesn't remember Xion at the moment. So you can totally like both couples.
Until... everyone's revived in KH3 and then Roxas really will have to choose. I think when that time comes, I'm really going to ship Roxas/Accessory Shop Girl. LOL.
I also love said Accessory Shop Girl's reason for torturing Aqua. I mean, don't get me wrong. I love her. She's my second fav KH girl. I understood where she was coming from; I know she just accidentally voiced fears she really didn't believe... but BbS really was all her fault. She created the wedge between her trio and thus, as you had the Accessory Shop girl say, started the entire series in a way...
I should tell you that you write all the girls well. Save for having them be a little more snarky (especially in Naminé's case), and having them not be damsels (in Kairi and Naminé's case). But I actually prefer that, so kudos to you. It doesn't seem like we'll ever see those two be awesome in the games. In fact, it seems to me Kairi barely exists in the series anymore, which REALLY ticks me off.
But I love how you wrote Xion and Aqua. I think they were very IC. Which I'm glad for, because I've never really seen you write for them and, as said above, they're my favorites.
And I liked when Xion got tickled. Silly, Xi. I liked that part because it reminded me of Kairi and Nami's tickle torture in Wedding. And Xion, in a lot of ways, IS Kairi; it makes sense that she'd be as ticklish as them.
And I loved Xion's, "Faeries. Great," line. That was actually really in-character. Xion could be really sarcastic in Days, and this was hilarious! Your humor with Xion's is just epic.
The fact that Aqua said, to start this off, "Where am I?" was also funny. First in Yen Sid's tower, and now here. Aqua needs to remember where she's been better. LOL.
So this is really long, and I should probably shut up now, but amazing work! I hope you continue (even if updates aren't frequent). And I can't wait to see what you do next.
P.S. I love that they're in the Datascape. Nice reference to Coded (even though I despise that game). Will we be seeing some Data Naminé or anything like that? LOL.
