....okay I'll try to do one of these, orz.

Um, special request though -- I often have trouble remembering which of my characters have met which of yours, so when you reply, please be like "I'd like you to give your character x's opinion on my characters y and z" instead of like "Your characters on all my characters!". I mean, if all my characters know all of yours, that's possible, but. Also please list your relevant characters' names when you do so because i even like. Forget some of Zazzle's characters sometimes. *g*

Also, if you want to return fire after that'd be cool but not necessary.

ETA: Mine are Umeda, Marluxia, The Riku Replica, Heat, and Alec.

Umeda, Marluxia, and the replica probably all have something to say about Zexion. Those or any subset of the three would be interesting to see ♥

bisexualorchid: (a kind and benevolent dictator)
From: [personal profile] bisexualorchid

...Marluxia's kind of easy because Marluxia...doesn't change. Even when he should, he really doesn't. *wg*

In Castle Oblivion, Zexion was Marluxia's enemy. It wasn't something he felt particularly strongly about -- Vexen was a good foil for that, after all. Zexion was just one of those people likely to oppose him when he tried to take over the Organization, so he'd have to be dealt with. Marluxia doesn't particularly care if he has to destroy them or if they join his side, as long as they're not in his way. However, it's perfectly obvious that Zexion wouldn't change sides, so he counted as an enemy.

In camp, Marluxia was prepared for it to go either way. Marluxia had a power base and associates in camp; Zexion, on his arrival, didn't. Marluxia knew, from hearing about it, what had happened to the Organization while they'd both been lost to darkness. Marluxia had a plan to continue on and work off of. So, he offered to let Zexion join his side, with the threat of turning his power against Zexion should Zexion not. Zexion found the threat tasteless (as Marluxia expected), and joined him (also as Marluxia had expected, though without the same surity) and Marluxia pretty much mentally cheered at having to do less work.

Of course, Marluxia is always sure to remind Zexion of the difference in position between them in little ways, like casually ordering Zexion about (sometimes even in the form of requests!) and otherwise showing off. But that's nothing new, and I rather expect that Zexion would be concerned should Marluxia stop, as it'd be a sign something was wrong, or at least that Marluxia definitely had things taking up enough of his attention and energy to not split it on his casual benevolent dictatorship.

There are a few other aspects in how Marluxia acts towards Zexion as well. Like, on one side of things, Marluxia really respects Zexion's ability to perform things in an inherently different way from Marluxia or those Marluxia usually associates with -- it's useful, and it's interesting. He WAS really glad that Zexion joined them, because with Zexion, things get done in a different way -- and not overlooked -- and more efficiently, and Zexion's really a master of things that Marluxia's still a novice to. It was a big relief, and a big help, and Marluxia doesn't push too much as a result.

On another side of things, Zexion's an excellent experimental sample! Because, of course, he was following Axel's changes in response to emotional attachment towards him, and wanted to test it on other nobodies -- and here comes along a Nobody with a far extreme lack of affect. Zexion had barely arrived before Marluxia launched into his tests, by suggesting to Kairi to communicate with Zexion and so forth; Kairi really tends to care about things wholeheartedly, being what she is, and he wanted to see where that'd go. He continues to try to encourage people (quietly and in the background; he doesn't want to draw attention to the fact he's doing it) to get attached to Zexion, up to the current day -- just a few days ago he found out Haru's living with Zexion, and told her to please continue to take care of Zexion. *g* Etc. Of course, he doesn't want Zexion to become useless, but if Zexion DID become destabalized, it'd be an excellent proof of Marluxia's developing theory. Of course, he's TOLD Zexion about his theory (though not taht he'd test Zexion as a part of it) but that's even better, in a way, as Zexion will be even more likely to notice himself losing stability than anyone else would.

And, last, but certainly not least, Marluxia's lonely. He has Larxene, of course, and Axel, but he's definitely used to a balance and a... richer environment. More competative, of course, but. Having Zexion around is also kind of comforting; he's a bit homesick in his way.

Umeda doesn't ask.

...That seems like a weird place to start with, but I'm betting you're coming along with me right here: Umeda sees all sorts of contradictions and contrariness and hints of hidden things, but Umeda doesn't ask.

Or maybe it'd be better to say that Umeda doesn't push.

When they met, Umeda walled Zexion more out of fun than because Zexion's attractive -- of course, Zexion is, but he's a little on the young side for Zexion's tastes. Zexion's response was of course terrifying -- it's not like normal humans really want to be dragged into the dark realm. Of course, it freaked him out (read: put pressure on his heart). Still, Umeda's seen a lot in camp, and he's a pretty easy-going, recovering-well, blase sort to begin with, so he got over it fast -- he doesn't hold a grudge, and doesn't mind, though he's not gonna stop calling you Creepy forever.

That said, he's seen a lot more of Zexion's caring side than most people in camp, ironically. He knows that it's balanced out with the rest of Zexion's nature, but he's seen Zexion cornering Axel for the replica's medical care after Axel tormented him, and during that same conversation he saw Zexion having a discussion on power and philosophy of power, and moving into a teacher role with the replica and Namine. He's seen Zexion bring in Haganemaru despite the fact that essentially nothing could be done for that boy's future -- just something might be done for his now, and he also saw that Zexion knew that nothing could ultimately come of it, only emotional support, and that Zexion saw the strain the hopelessness put on Umeda, anticipated it, and was sorry/sympathetic for it. He's seen Zexion go far out of his way to get medical care for the children he's surrounded by on a day to day basis, when it'd be far easier to just let it be, and by acknowledging that it was putting Umeda under some pressure to see them all, was also acknowledging that it IS easier just to let them be.

All in all, between having found out quite a bit about Nobodies over the last ...year and a bit, and what he's seen of Zexion, he has the very strong impression that Zexion is a very strong, very quietly powerful and slightly sadistic Nobody who, as a person, is domestic, caring, and concerned, and that Zexion himself isn't quite comfortable with how the two sides are meshing. Because of that, although Umeda thinks that the situation is one that's developing (from what he's seen since... man, December '06), and in ways Zexion may be strained by, he isn't going to actually bring that up to Zexion unless the situation forces it. It could do that by affecting Zexion's health in a way that Umeda would feel obliged to step in, or if Zexion himself brings it up.

Now, by brings it up, I don't mean -- out of the blue, but Umeda's the sort who doesn't push for or directly ask for answers, but he does the... psychologist listener thing a lot, where he'll ask an initial question, and then lead the conversation either to get affirmations and denials with explanations. So, he wouldn't go "you care for that replica, huh, how's that working out for you", but he might go "How's that kid of yours doing?" and when Zexion says something like, "the replica's not my child", Umeda'd go "Eh, you knew who I meant." etc etc.

He does think it's something worth keeping an eye on, because he thinks Zexion's the sort of anal-retentive sort who doesn't handle change well, but he's mostly sitting back and watching. He might go "not my business" under other circumstances, but because of how Zexion's behaved around him with the kids' health (mental, emotional, and physical), over and over, and how Zexion's given him some trust in that regards as well, he's gonna keep an eye on things casually. Also, he respects Zexion a lot, and though he doesn't really think Zexion's whole, he thinks the whole that Zexion is leaning towards is an interesting one who is worthy of respect.

Umeda's is much simpler! He's pretty sure Gokudera is a punk -- a gay punk -- who's probably a good kid at heart but needs to know when to get himself checked up.

Umeda understands people not liking doctors -- he also doesn't think that's any excuse to not suffer it now and then. He enjoys Gokudera's spirit, and the fact that Gokudera's so easy to piss off. So, he'll probably swing round and do that "butting into your conversations" thing now and then.

I didn't think so, this is just the journal I am currently logged in as. For some reason, I thought Aviy played the replica but the reference to Zazzle confused me. It is all clear now!

I think Umeda has met Clark -- might be wrong though?

Marluxia has met Kon, Clark and Robin.

Riku Replica has met Kon and I still really want him to meet Clark as well.

I don't think any of mine have met Heat although Minagawa knows of Heat -- that might be reciprocal?

And of course Kon and Clark have met Alec.

... that's a lot. You don't have to do all of those. ^^; Also, a few weeks back Buffy asked me to post on her behalf to the concrit comm, and when listing who she played, I forgot Lex. You are not alone!

... Somehow, I think it comes out to Umeda, Marluxia, and Riku Replica on Dino (Heat and Dino have talked before too, but not recently?). Clearly I need to jump you with different characters.

I have been made of fail lately when it comes to interacting with your characters, where "lately" means, like, the past months. gg, me. MENTAL NOTE MADE TO RECTIFY THIS. T-though not immediately, because busy work is busy.

Don't know if anything has changed to Umeda regarding Enjolras or Maladict, but if so.

This is all going to be for Touda/Mokkun/Guren-- I think he's met the Replica once (not enough to have a real opinion of him, in any case, so don't feel you need to do this o/ since I won't be able to return the favor), but I'm curious about Alec's first impressions because of what he said, and am also wondering if Umeda's impressions from CFUW count. T^Tb

Also, I need to remember to meet the Replica under this account |D
