Permissions Post, Heart Sensing

What is Darkness, and what does this mean for me?

A good question! Darkness happens to be one of the two essential building blocks of the Kingdom Hearts universe. It gets brought up a lot as being a very bad thing, but this is a misconception. Darkness, like Light, is not inherently evil, and is necessary to maintain the balance of the multiverse at large. It's just that Darkness tends to get used by people that aren't too terribly careful with it and wind up consumed by it, and as such? Has gained a reputation as being a very dangerous power to use. It's very nature is such that unless you are careful and have a strong will, a stronger Heart, and a powerful moral fiber, it will draw on the more negative aspects of your personality until you have given over to them entirely.

So... why did I need to know this?

Another good question. The answer is simple; Terra here is capable of sensing the balance of Light and Darkness within a person's Heart. As stated in his application, while he isn't as good at this as his teacher, Eraqus, or his fellow student, Aqua, Terra can, with some focus, determine how much Light and Darkness lies within a person's heart as well as determine whether the Darkness he is sensing is malignant or not. This is primarily a passive skill.

Which brings us to the actual permissions part of this post.
  • Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? If yes, then--
  • On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? Note that aside from some very rare cases, having a score of zero or ten will be nearly impossible.

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? For Roxas (lamentless), yep.
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? Ffffffffive? I never know how to answer this considering the whole Ven and Sora thing augh.

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? With Phillip (insertkeywordshere), yes.
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? Five, a twinge abnormal, but still normal and even.

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? With Alcor (viditlibertas), he can but he might want to avoid doing so.
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? He's somewhere between 0 and a planet's heart, given he's a star and all. I'm mostly just playing him by ear.

This is for Suzaku Kururugi ([personal profile] swordofzero), Romeo ([personal profile] myblueskies), Taiki ([personal profile] notagiraffe) and Shion ([personal profile] savedbyasong)

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? Yep for all of them

On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart?

Taiki: 0 (he is a creature of pure light and benevolence created by the gods)
Romeo: 1 or 2
Shion: 4 or 5 (though most of the darkness is still unrealised)
Suzaku: 7

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? Sure.
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? Exactly in the middle. It might flicker slightly to either side sometimes but generally exactly in the middle.

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? Yep!
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? I said 1.1 on a scale of 1-5 so I'd say 1 is good enough for a larger scale. Very, very light, but, in the end, human and not totally free of things that darkness could be attached to.

This goes for Sayaka Miki ([personal profile] beknightedheroine) and Kohaku ([personal profile] syncingdoll):

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart?
A yes for both!
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart?
With Sayaka, I'd say this can actually vary on account of how Madoka Magica canon works - ranging all the way down to 10 depending on how corrupted her soul gem is. She'll never be above a 3 or 4 even when it's clean, though. If you need a solid number for a certain day, just prompt me and I can give you one. The darkness that dwells in a Puella Magi is highly malignant and an active force against their wellbeing - so uh yeah that'd be a ping.

For Kohaku, I'd give her a 7 - her darkness is largely still and at rest, though so are her emotions at large. I'm not sure how to deal with someone who basically denies their ability to feel human emotion in the context of hearts, so hm. if you have an idea how to better handle it since you know the heart stuff better, i can definitely go with it.

This is for:

[personal profile]Minato Arisato | Persona 3 [AU - Strega!verse]
[personal profile]Link | LoZ: Ocarina of Time [AU - genderswap]
[personal profile]Legion | Mass Effect 2 [OU]

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? Yes totally for everyone but it's gonna be special for Legion:

I'm going to leave it ambiguous on purpose at a "weird kind of maybe thing" that's going on? It's alive. ;) That's all Terra needs to know.

On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart?

Link: She rates a 2 AT MOST. She'd be really close to a pure light special foo-foo girl, I THINK, mostly because of how the Triforce of Courage works and how she is inherently the Force Of Good chosen by the Goddesses, etc. She does have some darkness but it's only what's inherent on any living being, I'd say? Urghhh Zelda is so confusing but Link is basically the Light of the game along with Zelda, so uh. Yeah.

Minato: It's probably in the range of 3-5. (I'm a little canonblind so forgive my ignorance lmao.) Minato has killed many times over but he's not a BAD person really.

Legion: Probably a 1, to be honest. It'd be a little weird, see. Legion is a machine and it doesn't view things as 'right' or 'wrong', necessarily; it's only just picked up actions/how it views things due to being around the human Commander it's friends with and lead by. So it's never... done anything it thinks of or counts really as bad, despite having killed enemies, it views it as necessary self-defense of its unit. Also, it's a pretty nice machine. ... I don't even know if programs can HAVE darkness? So... yeah.

If you have anything else you need detail-wise I answered this in more depth over here!

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? Yes for all of them.

On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart?

Raphael would probably hit..about a .5 or a whole one, since he does have a few worries and doubts. Probably about a .6, I think.

Yotsuba would hit a three-five. She has some worries and can be a brat sometimes, but she's still a pretty sweet kid for the most part.

Tohko would hit a five. She has some worries and doubts, even if she does try to put up a brave front and not acknowledge them when they do come up and help others instead. She can also be a bit stubborn sometimes, which can lead to arguments and fighting.

chaos would hit a five as well. He's the failsafe of his universe, and his power is capable of destroying it..but he himself loves humanity and is constantly trying to help and pondering about his powers, the good and bad of them.

Jasmine is about a three. She has some doubts, and she's really bad around people, but she's a pretty well-adjusted person.

On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? I'd say about 7-8? Some of it's malignant, too, but not a majority of it.

On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? Proooobably hovering somewhere around a 2 or 3. Definitely erring hard on the side of Light, but he's seen some things.

Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? Go ahead.
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? A 2 or 3? She has a strong moral sense, but she carries a lot of guilt and uncertainty in her heart.
risingshepard: Alert. (Mulling it over.)

For Shepard since they'll be interacting later on. 8D

[personal profile] risingshepard 2013-08-25 07:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Can Terra sense the Light and Darkness within your character's Heart? Sure thing!
On a scale of 0 to 10 (with zero being absolutely free of darkness, and ten being completely free of any light), about how much Darkness does your character have in their Heart? Let's rate Shepard at about...a 5. Shepard's got plenty of light, but she's a soldier. There's a lot of grimness about her, too, though not necessarily evil -- and if asked about it, she's not going to deny that she's taken lives or made harsh decisions.
