the cracks in our memories can't change the bonds in our hearts
to Simple and Clean, an au post-3D Kingdom Hearts roleplay.
After Xehanort removed the chains of memories linked not to people, but to objects and events - the keyblade, the Princesses of Heart, and Kingdom Hearts itself - the heroes found themselves living in a world where they are... ordinary. Where they are highschool and college students, parents or siblings, and living in a world not too far removed from our own.
Casting his spell cost Xehanort strength and time, but he's begun to move - and not everyone had their memories pulled. How will the worlds react to the return of the darkness when the light doesn't know to stand against it?
Xehanort's awakening is at hand, and with it has come the beginning of the destruction of his spell.
10/08/17 First major site event has begun! Xehanort has awoken and he's hellbent on ensuring his plans will not be interfered with. A halloween writing contest has started as well, so be sure to check them both out.
He didn't know what happened.. How it happened. But one moment the bowling ally having one of those. hangs? Hanging? Getting out? networking? Friends? He really didn't know what to call it, that thing you do with the people you enjoy company with, homo sapien activities. The absolute next his friend was closer than he ever thought humans got? He was completely baffled by it, even more baffled by the growth of warmth he felt. The flush of on the cheeks, the butterflies in the tummy, the.. Just. What was it?
He feared it. It was some sort of sickness, disease, thing. There was no possible way it could be anything else. Silence, that was how he reacted afterward, completely cutting off any conversation with Edym. His mind trying to figure out what was wrong. He had taken about quite a while with only Jim and his lab for company, to finally.... Decide. To talk to Edym. In person. That was how it went? Right? In person?
He had done study after study, researched the meaning of this odd "sickness" that made him ill.. Yet not ill at all. This whole as he could only call it, mating feeling? Was that it? He still didn't get it, just he knew he wanted well missed Edym. He thought constantly of Edym's invite, He felt completely uncertain about everything.
He knocked on the door calmly waiting, repeating in his mind, here to gather intel, here to gather intel. What type of intel he hoped to learn? Ienzo wasn't sure, was this some new disease his friend passed along? All vitals were normal, yet. Weren't.

Edym was sad. He'd been stuck on another world with Ienzo and Jim. And he'd thought things had gone back to normal. But then Ienzo had stopped calling him and he'd tried to visit only to find the spare key was moved. And he wasn't going to barge in on his friend anymore. If Ienzo even thought of him as a friend.
So he'd stay away giving Ienzo his space ven though he felt awful. But at least he had Jim and morph so Ienzo wasn't completely alone. He hadn't picked up a guitar since. He'd tried to sing or think up words but nothing came to him. It was if he'd lost his muse.
"Have I lost you for good?" whispered Edym.
He was surprised as the door opened. He opened it seeing it was Ienzo as he pulled the guy into a hug.
"Ienzo! You're here!" said Edym.
He paused letting go of him reluctantly.
"Are we good or you telling me to stay away? If you really want me to I'd stay away. Because you asked me to." said Edym.
He couldn't stand it after after what he felt in that odd town.. place. Nothing made absolute no sense. What's worst while he didn't contact Edym, Edym definitely did not contact him. He was rather shocked when Edym opened the door, shocked how much he missed the homo sapien. The exact same one who swept him up into a huge hug, his body stiffing up as the guy continued speaking before pausing letting go. The silver hair completely froze heart pounding, his eyes staring straight down at Edym
The taller one of the two, took an awkward step back as the blondie went on about the solution he came up with. The male was silent tilting his head observing the other one, thinking... Always thinking about hhow to do it, best solution. That was it? Good or stay away? Is that how homo sapiens operate? Black and White? It was scientific, made sense. Right? "I don't know, here to gather data." he replied in a rather stone cold emotion hidden voice, before stepping up giving Edym a kiss. Rather longer than it needed to be type of kiss, before stepping away, his blush bright. "Tha-that... Was inconclusive" He stuttered heart completely beating like a young lamb confused what to do about this snake in the grass.

Edym paused as he spoke.
"Gather data?" asked Edym.
He was surprised as Ienzo pulled him into a long kiss. Edym's mood was lifted as he grinned. When Ienzo spoke again Edym chuckled.
"Maybe we should experiment. If you don't have enough data you can't reach an accurate conclusion right?" asked Edym.
He grinned pulling Edym back into another kiss. He had Ienzo back and he didn't want to let him go. He pulled back reluctantly but he still had his arms wrapped around him. He was smiling but you could see the sadness in his eyes.
"Don't shut me out again ok? Talk to me. Yell at me. But don't leave. It was so hard to not even hear your voice the past few days. I don't know what I'd do if I lost you for good." said Edym.
He held him close perhaps too tightly as if he was afraid he'd vanish or this was all just a dream.
"You're really here right? This isn't just another dream?" asked Edym.
He then gasped putting his hand over his mouth realizing he just admitted to dreaming about Ienzo and blushed.
The other's face was rather pointy and sharp, a slight smile, was that normal? He the blush grow brighter as the male continued about data, of course that would make sense. To keep going till an accurate conclusion was presented, before he knew it the blond had pulled back into another kiss, Edym's arms moving into a slight strong hug. Ienzo's hands clinched slightly in slight shock, before moving to grab the other male's shirt slightly uncertain.
The kiss he wasn't certain how kisses even went, it was a common practice between two hominidaes, however it was more of grooming friendliness? A show of friendly communication, his brain couldn't think straight trying to focus on the data. The connection the increase warmth, sweat from the pores, the-the sickening feeling. The sudden lungs squinching in desperation, gasping for air as the other pulled back. Wave of dizziness swarming over him, he needed to sit down, this data didn't make any sense at all. The voice came in worrisome he focused on it, talk. Right talk. record the data... Recorder, its on, just make reports. Couldn't speak, air, needed air. Focus. How to phrase words. Closeness still there... Felt, odd in-explanatory.
Here? Dreams? Dreams the very chemical movement in the mind to allow humans to pick up stress in various creative environments. Another? He envisioned them before? Ienzo tried to understand that, this was, no wait second time. Possible memory replay? Ienzo stared slowly coming to his senses regaining control, not pulling form the arms, it was nice. He watched as Edym blushed harshly mouth covering, he felt similar way? Both sharing similar communication? The sickness? He spoke softly wording rather well, "Hominidae communication methods between two homo sapiens are odd cause for elevate heart rate, lump in throat, increase blood pressure causing redness both cheeks, inflammatory system, and high REM communicative dreams. Data still insufficient to create complete conclusion, though communication has caused physical and emotional connection, as if creating odd mating ritual ignoring evolutionary requirement to pass on genes. Communication require arm interlocked on waist side, lips interlocked both specimens, and lessened dista-"
He paused high red blush crossing his face, his hand sliding from clinch position to touch his lips. Body giving a slight shiver he didn't quite understand before swallow, "Dihydrogen Oxide, ne-need wa-water." He practically gasped it out moving his hand from his lips eyes looking downward staring onto Edym's torso admiring the slight choice of fiber. Head completely spinning blush growing brighter than before. "In-in-increase heart rate, potential hazard... Water he-he-help inflammatory..."

Edym grinned enjoying the kiss and seeing the blush on Ienzo's face. He was glad the feeling was mutual but it did seem to confuse Ienzo. When Ienzo started talking about scientific terms and he chuckled.
"I'm not sure about what you said but I think you're saying we have feelings for each other. I know I havef or awhile and I've tried to ignore them. But that night in the bowling alley I got swept up in the moment. And now I'm just glad I got to kiss you a few times. I just like spending time with you." said Edym.
He paused as Ienzo asked for water as he grinned.
"Of course." asked Edym.
He opened the door motioning him inside and closed it once he led him to the kitchen.
"I got bottled water in the fridge. But if you're okay with just tap water I got some cups in the cabinet to the left of the sink." said Edym.
He was laughing? Ienzo felt slight uncertainty about the laughter, it was a cute, but he didn't know if the companion thought his experiment was a bit non the deep end. Edym gave that suaul quirk smile Ienzo rather enjoyed, he then quickly broke into explanation of how he felt. The silver hair felt a slight bile, of course.. He was taking it in the most backward twisted way.
The door swung open wider, and he walked inside taking in the scents and sight. His blush started to fade as his posture relaxed at the more recognizable area. He hadn't been there as much as Edym's at his house, but there were times.. He may wanted to study Edym's sleeping patterns or fix a computer. He spoke up, "Tap contains high carcinogens and bodily toxins, bottled... Water.." After speaking he sat on the couch taking small comfort in the material, taking deep long breaths in a rather yoga style.

Edym nodded. He grabbed tow bottles of water and handed one to Ienzo while taking one for himself. He then sat down on the couch next to him and grinned.
"I'm just glad you came. I was starting to think I'd never see you again and that was making me sad." said Edym.
At that moment his stomach grumbled and he blushed.
"I wasn't able to eat much the past couple days. Mostly just fruit. Nothing tasted good or I just felt sick. I never felt this way about other people who dumped me. Not this badly. I guess I never really had such strong feelings for someone before. I often ended things before it got that far. But now I feel like I could eat a horse. Or maybe just a pizza." said Edym.
The pressure of the couch changed as another weight was added, Ienzo accepted the drink tilting his head slightly as the other male's stomach began to growl. Soon Edym broke into commentary about how he was starving and that this feeling had been gnawing him for weeks. Ienzo thought about it, he hadn't exactly been able to eat either, but that wasn't due to anything too... emotional. It was really from just forgetting to eat, so caught up in the research why he felt so sick. H
he however was used to feeling hunger pangs, and rarely had stomach growling. "I-I would like something to eat too." He spoke up feeling the edges of the water bottle in thought. Had strong feelings? not this bad? dumped? He couldn't quite understand all these, he wanted to ask about them but felt frozen. He slowly opened his mouth to force himself to speak, "Why do feel such strong feelings that it makes you sick. This new intel confuses me about it."

Edym paused for a moment and the mention of food.
"I'm not sure what I have. Let me check." said Edym.
He paused opening the fridge and it was pretty empty. He'd thrown out a lot of old takeout meals he'd forgotten to finish. He hadn't felt much like cooking the past few daysr and had ordered take out. He guessed he hadn't gotten to the grocery store in awhile either. He returned to Ienzo and smiled sheepishly.
"I've been eating take out the past few days. Kitchen's almost empty. Probably need to do some shopping soon. You want me to order a pizza or something?" asked Edym.
He paused as Ienzo spoke agai.
"Ah that's just nerves. Sometimes when you really some one you can feel sick. Some call it lovesick. I guess I've felt that way too. I know this is new to both of us so I'm just glad you're willing to give it a chance." said Edym.
He paused walking down and sitting on the sofa again and pulled out his cell phone. He turned it on and started looking for restaurants in the area.
The friend, is it even called that? correctly? Walked off scavenging to see if he can locate any bits of food. Ienzo fiddled with his fingers, before staring at the water thinking of all the small particles inside. He gave a small blush thinking how if two crossfoods they would initially be sharing germs, spreading to each other's saliva. This topic taking a slight odd turn inside his imagination, when Edym pulled him out. "Yeah! sounds great!" He answered on autopilot feeling suddenly comfortable shifting his wait.
Lovesick? That is it...Would explain... Giving it a chance? His heart pounded causing slight disruption of breathing rate, only increasing as the close friend sat back down, turning on the phone began pulling up restaurants. "Wha-what toppings should we get?" Thinking various toppings, most consider the basic pepperoni for easy, but the vege held slight more health benefits. Then it was Edym ordering he should pick, "Pepperoni?" The voice squeaked out slightly the breathing issue causing airflow through vocal box.. bad very bad vibrations.
Post by Demyx/Edym Riverson on Oct 28, 2017 4:33:41 GMT
"Okay pepperoni it is." said Edym.
He orders a couple pepperoni pizzas intending to put the leftovers in the fridge for later.
'It'll take 30 minutes to get here. So maybe we could pop in a movie or play a game." said Edym.
He could see Ienzo was nervous and he didn't want to overdo things. As much as he'd like to just sit there kissing or holding him all day he didn't want to make Ienzo too nervous. That wouldn't be any fun.
Pepperoni it was, Edym instantly dialed and made up the to go pizza order. Quickly naming how much time it should take, and that they should probably do something like Movies or games or just something. Ienzo looked over at the tv, before silently picking himself up looking at the collection of movies. Fingering one that said "flobber" with a mad scientist and green bloob on the cover, he pulled it out. Shaking it with a smile, "Your pick next?" He asked playfully, before opening the disk throwing it into the machine. He was not going to take no for an answer, anything science themed he just enjoyed a little too much..... And may gave him bad ideas to try new not very safe experiments as result.
Movie began playing the commercials, he walked back over to the couch plumping on, before leaning his body against Edym. A blush crossing thinking how close they both were by this action, how he oddly kinda liked it.
ooc: You can time skip the pizza arrival, and halfway point to movie. Total permission to try anything like arm over his shoulder.

Edym smiled putting a movie in. He nodded.
"Okay. I'll pick the next one." said Edym.
When Flubber started he grinned.
"You certainly picked a fun one. This one's going to be great." said Edym.
He grinned yawning stretching his arms and wrapped an arm around Ienzo. He was trying to appear casual but he doubted he was fooling anyone. The movie went by pretty quick. The professor failed to show up to his wedding for the third time and Edym chuckled.
"That woman should have taken the hint the first time. Once maybe a mistake but three times? That's pushing his luck." said Edym.
And when the woman dumped him Edym chuckled.
"Good for her. The guy can't focus on his work all the time. Relationships take work." said Edym.
It had been awhile since he'd seen this movie. He was sure the couple probably got back together in the end. It was a kids movie after all. He got so invested in the movie that he didn't realize when the doorbell rang. He blushed reluctantly letting go of Ienzo. He stood up and paid the delivery man including a tip. He took the two pizzas and sat them on the table. He then closed the door as the delivery man left. He grabbed some plates from the kitchen handing one to Ienzo.
"How many slices do you want?" asked Edym.
He took two slices for himself and placed them on his plate.
The movie went on, Edym made comments, Ienzo nodded to them wondering more about them trying to understand deeper portion. He became so invested into the movie after all the commentary, merely relaxing into Edym's warmth, that the doorbell made him jump. The blonde quickly got up paying for it setting the pizzas on the table turning asking the white hair how many he wanted.
Silently the male held up 2, watching as Edym set them on the plate. He then calmly quietly spoke, "Why is it wrong to leave her for a discovery? Or idea?"
