So flist, your thoughts? I haven't talked about it with my Roxas yet, but I'll wait to see her thoughts as well. My personal feeling is that yes, Axel is. This is, of course, pushing aside the sickly sweet Disney-ness of it all. I have reasons for thinking he is, but they're not very defined yet beyond it's a feeling. So I'll try to tackle that somewhere soon, but what do you guys think? I don't do a lot of canon fics, save short drabbles, and while I've thought about it, I've not really thought about it in any length. So... yea.
eta: I'm thinking about it more and all the reasons for him not being a virgin still don't wash with me. I like to think I have somewhat of a grasp on his character (since I've been writing/roleplaying Axel for about a year and a half now, which is small compared to a lot of others, but a stretch of time for me k) and I just.. don't get it. Is my view fundamentally flawed somewhere? Am I basing my view on like, completely false things? I'm just curious. I'm sure this has been hashed like, a billion times on other places, but this is really the first time I've come to doubt- dare I say it- my characterization. I'm pretty confident in the way I write/play him. Sometimes I think I need to play him a little more edgier, but not to the degree of "omg I'm a slut." Maybe even the tamer "I am free and exploring my new world!" I admit that I play him sort of odd and against what I feel is fandom's majority opinon. I still don't see that hopping into bed with another person without something to be er, gained.
Idk. I'm not like, losing sleep over it or anything, I'm just way curious. This is the first time I've come into contact with such a varying opinion from my own. It's kinda cool. In a way. xD
It's also 5 in the morning and I'm AWAKE. There's also that.
