What's with the pussy Demyx?
No. Don't you walk away. You stay here and listen!
Demyx: The Melodious Nocturne, Number 9 in Organization 13. Wields a magical sitar, controls water (VERY strong & destructive element btw...), and can even control his own water clones with his water powers and command them at his will. I repeat- AT HIS WILL!
...If none of this is new to you, then you're doing well so far....
Demyx is a "Nobody". Nobodies do not have hearts. They lack deep feelings/emotions, and COMPASSION for others.
Which leads to the heart of this rant...:
DEMYX IS NOT A SWEETHEART OR AN ANGEL!
None of the Organization members are! The only one that is possibly good-natured and caring is Roxas.
And I've been keeping this in I don't know HOW long...but why is XigDem so much "better" than XigXal, or any other pairing?
I've looked into many pairings, and in all of them, I can see ways to make the two members "fit". But not XigDem.
Okay okay, in all honesty I despise the pairing. I can't stand it! Every time I see it, it makes me depressed. I hate it SO much, that I'm STILL trying to break out of my devastation upon hearing that one of my friends "Loves the pairing"
I really don't know exactly why the pairing makes me so depressed that I cry, but I do know one reason: Any of my friends would know that I'm a huge Xaldin fan- but not like most of the "Big name" Xaldin fans you know. I love him for the character he is. I love him from his awesome hairstyle, to the enigmatic and graceful air in which he moves. He is so unique and beautiful. But when I see that character I love so much get butted out by some bishie-boy who's not very unique, yet gets ten-times more respect and love from the fans as it is, it just downright pisses me off!
Though it may not be true, I can't help but think that most XigDem fans are shallow; that they like the pairing because of it's supposed "kyute-ness"(...more like because of Demyx's cuteness...) and it's another buttplug for Demyx, only better because it's a guy who's ages older than him so it makes it seem somewhat controversial. Also because...we all know that "Demyx needs moar luv!"*rolls eyes*
But back to the "shweetheart" part of it, people think that "age doesn't matter" to Demyx...and that's the part that makes me seriously ill. Demyx, is a Nobody. ALL Nobodies lack strong emotions, for that much, but, as 'hard' as it is to believe, Demyx is no exception. He has to have SOME bad traits, SERIOUSLY! He can't be going around being a naive, little lover-boy, going on romantic dates with every Organization member and their other! I definitely DO NOT think that Demyx would want to be a creepy one-eyed old guy's "mate". I mean sure, Xigbar is pretty hot for an old guy, but is it SO wrong for a blonde, pretty-boy musician to be shallow and hold the fact that "he's old" against him?
Also, I'd have to say that Xigbar wouldn't be so fond of Demyx either. Think about it...Xigbar is a badass. Demyx is a softie. And from what I gathered of the two character's personalities, I think that Xigbar would most likely be mean to Demyx. He would probably tease him a lot. That which could also work in a "friendlier" way, in which Xigbar might tease Demyx to teach him to be more thick-skinned.
I know I know, ALOT of things could be held against me with this; "Why do you draw Xigbar and Xaldin cuddling then?" "Cuddling" is too much for an in-character setting, even I would have to admit that, but what makes people think that Demyx could "love" any more than Xaldin could? BOTH of them don't have hearts. Just because Demyx is a little less harmful in impression and seems less threatening in appearance, doesn't make him so drastically different from other regular Nobodies such as Xaldin. Think about it-
HE CAN STILL KICK YOUR ASS!
I think that WAAAAAY TOO many characters and pairings are being overlooked because of BNF's pushing their views of Demyx's supposed "compatibility" with others. I agree, that Demyx would want to be friends with ANYONE in the Organization, but for reasons that he just doesn't want to be alone in a castle full of darkness (and creepy guys). He dislikes lacking a heart just as much as all the other members do. He doesn't NEED comfort. He's a Nobody, he will stand up against his enemies. All he would REALLY need from anyone is...in respect to his personality, someone to keep him from being bored, and to help him not get killed.
Also, EVERY Organization member or pairing is beautiful in any way. You don't need people to force it into you by just saying "THEY ARE CUTE!" or "THEY LUV EACH OTHER!" ten-million times! Have you ever tried to look into these characters & pairings on your own? I'm sure you'll find at least one thing that you'll like about a character. Me? The XigDem pairing is much too crowded for me to recognize the real "before it was cool" fans amongst the "follower" fans. The crowd covers up the "meaningful core" of the pairing, leaving me to fail to understand it. I DID tolerate it though, back before it was popular, just to tell you that I'm not being just plain ignorant about it.
(I wrote a journal before on Y! and took some people's advice. :) )
I'm just SO sick and tired of people copying BNFs to get attention and to be all buddy-buddy with someone popular. I mean, I respect people believing in what they want the characters to be like, but I respect it if it's REALLY their own interpretation, like if they played the game and figured out things, let ideas branch off from there. I got my interpretations of the characters from seeing them for myself, on the TV, with the controller in my hand, and...a bit unfortunately...it makes a HUUUUUUGE difference than just watching videos on Youtube. Xaldin may not be as psycho or "wild" as is portrayed by BNFs, Demyx may not be as much of a pussy, or a "sweetheart" as he is portrayed by BNFs. We look at other people's ideas and interpretations in respect to the diversity of the fandom, not to copy them or become "followers" of them just to leech off on their popularity or become a "cool person"'s friend.
You are entitled to not listen, but reading this might teach you that there's more to characters than what popular people make you believe.
Thank you for your attention,
