Happy 8/13/14! Some high school AU silliness to break up your inevitably bittersweetly-tragic dash. And before anyone gets their sad on, Axel is the one taking the last picture. Whatever he does with himself after high school, he wouldn’t miss coming back for their graduation!

Scratchy pencils and flats because that’s how I roll on special occasions. 


Weirdly, this came about because xemni was muttering about how fandom keeps forgetting that Vanitas is basically a bara Sora. So uh. Mallverse Strife cousins suddenly! They’re in their mid-twenties and off living their own lives far away and only show up once a year, but it’s Xmas soon so tis the season XD Well actually Ventus technically attends Radiant Garden University (where he became bros4lyf with Aqua and Terra), but went abroad one semester and kinda forgot to come back, and now he’s a hostel-hopping shoeless hippie sporadically attending classes in various countries and going for a record in years spent earning a four-year degree. He sends the twins a lot of silly postcards from bizarre locations. Also he might have a rat-tail, though it’s probably a phase. Vanitas’ hobbies include being a huge dick, perpetuating stereotypes about smokers, and bringing a flask to social events for shock value. 

PS, “Suze” is Suzanne Strife, mother of Cloud and the twins and aunt of Ven and Van (… who might also be twins. Actually probably yeah, I mean that does run in families doesn’t it.) Name shamelessly borrowed from awayandlaughing

Oops I spent a disproportionately long time on the Rikus. It’s a testament to my self control that only one has a ponytail.

DeDraMo 26

Just after-school free swim, no team or nuthin’ (yet?). But ach. Go away I’m having an emotion.


Someday I’ll have to make some kind of comprehensive visual timeline for Mallverse. Or at least a masterpost that orders all the comics and crap using in-universe chronology. Apparently now I’m establishing that Zidora happened before Rokushi? ‘Kay.

On the bright side, I finally answered a question that’s been bugging me: why did I say that Pence isn’t allowed to wear his headband in school, but Xion is constantly allowed to wear absurd hats? Answer: she isn’t. Fight The Man, Xion.

And to answer another question: No, this high school AU does not appear to actually involve any schoolwork whatsoever. Just sitting around the lunchtable—with no lunch—and gossiping. 


Speaking of Mallverse… my hands just completely gave up once I finished DeDraMo, but here’s some Principal Xemnas and Vice Principal Xigbar. Xig always wears Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops and generally exists make Xemnas’ job difficult. In theory he should be the kind of “cool” teacher that all the students love, but unfortunately he deeply enjoys torturing students as much as he enjoys torturing the principal. He’s extremely chaotic and bases all his budget and scheduling decisions on dart throws and gut feelings, but they always turn out great so the board is afraid to fire him. 


There was an attempt. I realize that since this is a high school AU, I’m using models much closer to Lea and Isa than Axel and Saix, but for my own comfort I’m still calling them Axel and Saix. jftr

I clearly did not give a damn here, but eventually I think I wanna stick Saix in some kind of preppy/hipster hybrid clothes. Not so professional that it looks totally out of place in a high school, but slicker than your average Starbucks worker. Not that he works at Starbucks, poor thing. McMoogles… still dying. :’D
