Soooo I brought my mermaid tail to AFO & ~oujiyuki
brought her Demyx cosplay too.
BTW my BESTEST buddy Cat wrote me a sweet sweet fic just because of this AWSUM KOSPREH COMBO. (Personally I look like I have this 'totally going to drown you when you stop talking' expression on my face )
Demyx made a scuffing motion with his foot, very gently toeing a shell that really had no place being on the path. He was supposed to be “securing the perimeter,” or something else equally asinine. It was just an excuse for Larxene to be rid of him – it’s not like the mission required the both of them anyway.
There was a lake several yards from where he stood. He wandered towards it, casting glances back at the group of buildings that claimed the status of a town. It’s not like he cared if Larxene caught him goofing off, but Demyx really didn’t want to have that argument today.
The water was surprisingly clear around the edges and Demyx knelt there to let his fingers trail across the surface. He started back when, between one blink and the next, something very blue appeared before him in the water.
It was a mermaid, he realized with excitement.
The mermaid – mermaiden, to be specific – broke through the surface of the water and gave him a curious look, swimming forward to rest her humanoid torso against the rocky outcropping that bordered the lake.
“Hello,” Demyx offered, a grin spreading across his face, so wide it almost ached. This was more exciting than some stupid, one (wo)man mission. “My name’s Demyx. I bet you’ve got a cool name, something that belongs in a lyric someplace. I heard that mermaids were musical, is that true? You look like you’d be able to carry a note but you’d be surprised how often that means nothing toward true ability. Do you play an instrument? I have a sitar that I can call to me… ah, but you don’t want to hear me play, do you?”
The mermaid titled her head the opposite way, confusion still evident on her face. She opened her mouth and a serious of odd, chirping and clicks that, despite being a language he’s never even heard of, manages to convey a sense of “Um, what?”
It was probably the interlingual reaction to Demyx.
“So, uh,” he paused, not sure what to talk about if they couldn’t actually, you know, talk to each other. “I guess you’re not from Atlantica then?”
