You get 2000::bd/128, which is where the problem lies.
Next to that 2000::/bd is a valid global unicast address and is most
likely not assigned to you. If you want a test address range either use
the documentation prefix (2001:db8::/32) or better use "Unique Local
Unicast" as per RFC4193 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4193.txt)

This is only 1 single IP address and it doesn't 'know' where the other
IP address is.
Make it 2001:db8::bd/64 and it will work as then the other address
(2001:db8::7f/64) is in the same prefix and then there is a route
between the two IP addresses.
Other way around is to do:
ip -6 ro add 2000::7f/128 dev eth0
on the 2000::bd/128 box, and:
ip -6 ro add 2000::bd/128 dev eth0
on the 2000::7f/128 box
But that is quite nasty. Use use /64's per link as it is supposed to be
