Re: Overbit Chaos -- Coming soon! (Halloween story up!)
OMG THANK YOU GUYS!! ;w; Ahhh this makes me so happyyyyyyy
You... you quoted Hamlet? Of all the stories out there, you chose the one that I'm stuck studying right now. XD
And that was excellent! I particularly enjoyed the Heartless attack... it's pretty much exactly what I imagined a "darker" version would be like. I've always found it neat how the Heartless can be fairly tame mooks if you don't pay close attention to them, but they have potential to be absolutely terrifying when the whole process of ripping a heart out gets explored a bit.
Oh, and thanks for doing this. Hoping that you'll put up the rest of it... I really want answers now.
Lol yosh I did! xD I actually quoted it 'cause the quote has stuck with me since the Versus XIII trailers and I thought it fit well with the themes in the story ;w; (I was actually torn between that one and a quote from Doctor Who lol)
Woo, glad you liked it! The whole thing with the Heartless attack was fun to do (even though I don't really like it anymore, now that I look at it again lol). This isn't really brought up in the story, but I'll bring it up here: my headcanon for when someone's heart gets taken by the Heartless is that time "slows down" (for lack of a better word) for the person, while in reality, this is a very short thing. The threads being attached to the heart are kind of metaphorical, too? I have more ideas on that, but it seemed like fun to do a different take on the Heartless ripping out someone's heart and being done with it.
Two things caught my attention! One, is Xiao bi-polar by any chance? Two, is Xiao keeping tabs on Rena? Anyways, YESH! I'm so happy you're doing the thing! I fangirled so hard upon reading this chapter and seeing it all come together at last! <3 Then there's the heartless tearing out Rena's heart. Man, that's still brutal to read and yet, feels so damn right with how dark it gets. I still love Xiao so much. I really hope you show us chapter two and more! I don't mind if it's not perfect and you know how much I wanna read it. xD (And your welcome for the beta work~)
First one: .....i honestly don't know if he's bi-polar haha XD; He was actually a lot more bi-polar, I guess, in the original draft because he acts super-duper nice to Rena and then turns on her in an instant. In this, he's less like that 'cause he's kind of an asshole at first, so hopefully the change between him trying to help Rena out to turning his back on her is less jarring. But I dunno, he could be bi-polar lol. In other things I've written with him, he's prone to getting angry really quick, but I'm not sure if that means his bi-polar >:T hmm.
And second one! .............nOOOOOO HE'S NOT HE'S JUST HELPING HER WHY WOULD HE JUST RANDOMLY SHOW UP IN A WORLD HE HAS NO INTEREST IN HAHAHA yes he's keeping tabs on her. a little lol. more on that later lalala
honestly writing for xiao was my favorite part of this chapter. or any chapter. he would appear in every chapter honestly ;A; he's a little shit i love him
And woo-hoo success!
Glad it was brutal! ...wait no that's not a good thing lol
I've tried to write KH horror fanfics in the past, so some of the dark, creepy stuff from those ideas kinda seeped into this lol. But that was mostly there to set up the tone for everything else. I don't think anything that
dark happens again (at least not with any Heartless), but hopefully some more freaky stuff happens later on lol.
Ohoh and notes on when the next chapters will come out: .....i have no idea, let's be honest lol. I have to check over what I've got for the chapters so far, but I'm really happy with how half of chapter three turned out and I think half of chapter two is done, so it may be sooner than I think lol. That being said, I want to finish a couple of chapters first before I post anything else, so it's not weeks between updates.
Also this story is going to take a back seat to another fic I'm working on (if you like Gravity Falls, BOY DO I HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU 8D //cri i don't want to leave gravity falls i love this show ;_____;
), but I will do my best to update regularly.
And seriously thank you guys so much for encouraging me to post the first chapter ;__; It means a lot to me ahhhhh. I was seriously going to trash everything, but now I kind of have some interest in the story again, at least enough to fix it up and get all of the chapters out. But I hope you guys enjoy it!! Hopefully the rest is good~ ;w;
Ohoh and let me know if you want me to do author's notes for each chapter 'cause there's a bunch of stuff that's gone into each chapter and it would be fun to explain some of the behind the scenes stuff and my thought processes behind all of the stuff in the story~ O:
