On one hand, it’s the apex of romance in my humble opinion. ‘Becoming one’ is poetry concentrated into two simple words that would be utterly meaningless outside of their denotations. It’s something that I just don’t dole out and the fact that I’m willing to offer it up as an opinion, whether it’s a transient merger or one that could last for months, is an affirmation of unconditional trust on my part! As you’ve probably ascertained, this is something exclusive to the close friend tier and higher – and there’s absolutely no flex on that! On the other hand, I feel like merging is the ‘kink’ equivalent to enjoying contemporary R&B and rap.
Allow me to explain: While there are some excellent tracks from both categories, the public opinion on them is skewed because the facet that’s the most popular is also the most revolting. What does your mind immediately conjure when you hear the word ‘rap’? Sex, drugs, guns, and excessive swearing (and maybe a subwoofer). Is that all there is? Oh God, no! There are thoughtful, well-written raps out there; they’re just overshadowed by the former. Because of that, everything under that umbrella is generalized.
The same is true for merging because some dolt way back when made merging and assimilation synonymous. Now, when people here ‘merging’, they thing subjugation by stuffing someone into you – anatomy and physics be damned – and being used for nothing more than your characteristics and additional biomass, sometimes in the lewdest sense (See: CTF). It’s almost never equated as a zenith of romance where two beings wish to throw off the shackles of physical boundaries and meld together or a friendly ‘dalliance’ were the two (or more) shared a common interest of seeing what they’d look like as an amalgam.
Now that you’re familiar with this, you’ll understand why I was on the fence about Vausch’s Majin Buu-esque copy ability. Why? Because it looked like everything I loathed in the aforementioned. That is until I sat down with him about it, of course! Much to my surprise (and despite how vicious his modus operandi was portrayed), he had the honest and pure impetus of just wanting to see what blends of his fursona and others would look like. Of course, I wasn’t about to submit then and there since him EATING me meant a 80/20 exchange – and probably would have caused a whole maelstrom of hurt considering how similar some of our abilities are… (try putting the positive ends of two magnets together and you’ll see what I mean)...yeah, that would have been calamitous. Five months later, we found a happy median in another element of Dragon Ball Z: the Potara earrings.
So, behold! The exalted combination of TahaJIN Grandville and VauSCH Abendroth clad in the Null Apparatus!
Jinsch Abenville – pronounced ‘gi-inch aben-vill’
And yeah, with us two combined? We are WAAAAAY overpowered. Physicists would cry just from exposure to our aura alone!
