Hey! I noticed you’re taking requests for EXU/CR again! So I was hoping to submit something? How would the EXU party react if their crush was the younger sibling of the famous Vax and Vex?
S/O Related to Vex and Vax
FANDOM: Critical Role / Exandria Unlimited
Character(s): Dariax, Dorian Storm, Opal, Fearne Calloway, Orym
Type of Request: Headcanons
Warnings: BIG C1 SPOILERS
Word Count: 652
Note(s): Yes I am! I miss writing for the EXU babes (and I'm rewatching it to finally finish it). So I'm happy to write this! I also half apologize for my Vax jokes in this (I promise that I love Vax so much, I just couldn’t help myself, I deal with sad things by making jokes)
Dariax has no idea who those people are. He just knows that his crush is so cool and talented and amazing and attractive and the list goes on and on.
Seriously doesn’t know a damn thing about Vox Machina. Like, “They’re those people in unicorn suits right?” No Dariax, that’s Vox Moronica, but nice guess.
Like you can try and explain who Vex is and who Vax was but Dariax just scoffs. Nice try crush, he’s dumb but he wasn’t born yesterday. They took down a god, yeah right. It was staged magic.
It’s kind of cute how much he doesn’t believe in Vox Machina. But it’s also kind of nice too that you aren’t being judged by who you’re related too because Dariax doesn’t really care.
He likes you not your family (which he still doesn’t know if they truly exist but that’s fine, it’s not his business).
Thinks you’re messing with him at first. He doesn’t know a whole lot about Vox Machina, but he does know they’re a big deal.
Like he’ll say things like, “Really then what’s their favorite meal” type deals to see how much you’re messing with him. Eventually he does realize, ‘Oh you’re not lying. Well shit.’
Dorian does rethink his crush on you a bit because if he ever meets your siblings then they can easily kill him.
Of course, he then learns that one of your siblings is already dead which gives him a better chance at survival (does it though?)
Honestly, Dorian will probably treat you better now that he knows your siblings are super powerful. But he does let you know that he still views you the same, a really good friend (because he is now afraid to mention his crush in case it summons your siblings to kill him).
Also doesn’t have a clue who Vox Machina is. She’s from the Feywild. She’s stayed in the Feywild for a long time. She doesn’t know who this Vex or Vax is at all.
She thinks its nice that you have siblings (you have to correct her that you have one now).
She still thinks it’s nice and would like to hear stories about when you were younger if you don’t mind.
Wouldn’t mind meeting your sister someday. I mean if your relationship is going to continue then she should meet the family, right?
Does find it interesting how they opened a gate from the Feywild to The Material Plane. So she also has to meet Vex to thank her because Fearne wouldn’t have met you otherwise.
Ohmygod you’re the sibling of the twins?! Opal knows the stories about them and how they joined Vox Machina and stuff.
Honestly she only paid half attention to the stories about them when they were told, but she knows they’re super cool and powerful.
Well one of them was super cool and powerful, but dead people are still cool right?
Okay but you being their younger sibling, did you ever learn rope techniques? Cause she’d love to talk to you about different methods and what the best knots are.
She still thinks you’re super cool and powerful though. Like your siblings are/were great but you’re already cooler than them.
Orym thought you seemed familiar in a way. He’s heard of the tales of Vox Machina, I mean his leader is Keyleth so of course he’s heard the stories of Vex and Vax as well.
That said, he might have some more reverence towards you because you’re related to people that the leader of his tribe holds in such high regard.
Might be a bit more respectful towards you (not that he wasn’t respectful to you previously).
Would like to ask you stories about your siblings and growing up with them, if you’d like to share.
the few things Keyleth has mentioned, he knows that life wasn’t great but he still wants to know your experiences.
