  1. Alright so, I think I've solved some of the main mysteries regarding the series around the world of union cross but I'm no expert so if I missed anything or you could add to the discussion that would be great, but I really think I'm on to something here So, what we know so far, the world of Union Cross is a virtual replica of the world of Chi which is the actual story of the events that led to the keyblade war of old then after the world perished and was reborn the the data of what happened was used in creating a virtual copy which would be used to study that history and how to prevent that scenario from happening. After the events of the war take place in Union Cross we start meeting new characters that weren't present in the original Chi, the first one we want to focus on is Ventus, for obvious reasons, we know he comes from a time that's definitely after the keyblade war, after the worlds were reborn and separated so how is he back? another charater we meet is Lauriam the original Marluxia(and just now we were introduced to Erlena who later becomes Larxene) what's important about Lauriam is that he looks noticeably younger than Marluxia (we know people may change a bit when they become nobodies but nothing as drastic as aging 10 years) so I believe Lauriam is the key to connecting Ventus to this era, we have just been looking at it backwards. It is not that Ven traveled back in time, but the world of Union Cross was created much much later, specifically around the Birth By Sleep Era, there is a lot of evidence that leads me to believe this is the case like This would place Lauriam in the correct age range (he was probably born around the same time as Isa & Lea, whose younger selves we met during BBS) Ventus is shown in his BBS clothes except missing one thing, his should pauldron which he uses to summon his armor, but! there is one instance during Birth By Sleep where he was seen wearing no pauldron, during his time training with Master Xehanort to extract his darkness before his heart is fractured and falls in a coma This takes place during a flashback and there is an unespecified amount of time that takes place during the gap between Ventus' heart being fractued and his arrival to the land of departure, it was shown that Xehanort was ready to give up on Ven waking up and took him to destiny islands to die I propose that during that gap Ven was used to experiment and research the new virtual world that was developed, but who created that world? Xehanort in an attempt to unlock the secrets of the past? No, he has never been shown to be know about creating that sort of thing, but we know of another character who has done just that, recreate worlds in the datascape and transport people there without them even knowing it I believe Ansem the Wise created the world of Union Cross, true he has never been shown talking about the keyblade war but I think he is more connected to the past than we know, first of all, he is ansem the WISE, king of radiant garden, so it would make sense for a wise king to know about the events of the past that regular people ignore, even Kairi's grandma knew a bit about how the world ended and was reborn so it is confirmed that knowledge of the old world reached radiant garden at least in some form So, Ansem the Wise managed to get a hold of Ven's body for a while, scanned him and added him to the world, maybe he thought that as a keyblade weilder his heart would help his simulated world be more accurate Here's where I must say I DO NOT CLAIM TO KNOW HOW ANSEM THE WISE GOT A HOLD OF VENTUS, maybe Xehanort, having his own desire to know about the past allowed the experiment to take place and after he Ventus could no longer be useful, that's when he took him to destiny islands (Xehanort would obviously have to hide his identity since when Ansem find the amnesiac Terra-nort and hears his name he does not react to it, and it would make sense, Xehanort wouldn't like others, like Eraqus, discover what he was doing) Earlier I said Ansem the Wise (ATW) may know more about the world before the keyblade war than he lets on and that there is something else that connects him to the past, something that I noticed long ago but couldn't find a solid reason for it to exist in such detail During Kingdom Hearts we not only learn about ATW's knowledge of creating virtual worlds and encoding real world objects into data, we learn that the old mansion in twilight town serves as his hideout/research lab but if we explore the place and pay attention to it's surroundings we can find something peculiar, all around the mansions we see iconography of something very important, we see images and sculptures of unicorns adorning the whole placethe unicorn being the symbol of one of the foretellers in chi/union cross So what if ATW in his research over the years found this information and tried to learn more about this old world (maybe he believed Ira as the Leader would be the one who held the answers so he aligned himself with his union) Skipping over a bit, during the new cutscene added to Re:Coded we see Maleficent talk about the similarities to between the datascape and the tome of prophecies and a few weeks ago we discovered that the Maleficent in UC is not a virtual character but the true maleficent, whose heart traveled back in time after being defeated in KH1 and is trying to change her fate, but instead of traveling to her true past she was (somehow) trapped in a virtual past by a hooded character refering to himself only as "darkness", since they don't want her interfering with the future and the plans they have, this had led many to believe this "darkness" to be Xehanort since he knows about time travel and has big plans in store, but I don't think that's the case, I believe, again this darkness is our man, Ansem the Wise, he also has been conducting research all this time and would want an uncontrolled outside force to interfere with it, and taking care of the easy one, the figure calls himself "Darkness", what other name has Ansem given himself? DiZ: DARKNESS in Zero So Ansem as the administrator of this virtual world would have no problem in controlling anyone inside his world/software this would help his research to continue on. And I believe this research, this knowledge of the past studied to prevent a future disaster is the very same research that has been alluded by him all these games, the very same research that he hid inside Sora while he was asleep, the knowledge to finding yourself or your lost friends in your hour of need Back to Maleficent, we know she traveled back in time and I stated how the world of UC was created around the time of BBS, but we don't really know how long it lasted so it could be that, maleficent traveled back to the time of BBS trying to undo her defeat during that game, but was trapped in a virtual world by Ansem and during the time she spent there the other events of BBS took place and then the betrayl by Xehanort and the other apprentices, when ATW was betrayed and sent to the realm of darkness that's when Maleficent, without Ansem eye on her, was able to escape and return to the real world, to the time of KH2 So in conclusion Ansem the wise wanted to know more about the keyblade war in order to prevent it and protect all worlds, using the knowledge he gathered over the years he created a virtual simulation of that era (probably thanks to Xehanort's own plans) added Ventus in an effort to enhance the world by adding a true keyblade weilder, Lauriam and Erlena were also added (we could think of them as a sort of Beta testers), they might've lost their hearts at the end of the simulation in whatever way that happens, at the same time Maleficent is trapped in the virtual world by Ansem to prevent her from changing history, the simulation continues, Xehanort takes Ventus back to destiny islands and the events of the games take place from BBS to KH2 by this time ATW has been sent to the realm of darkness and returned as DiZ, maleficent escapes the datascape (because UC is just another datascape, that's why the world of the journal in Re:Coded seems familiary to her) and Ansem after experiencing all he has, and gaining all that knowledge over the years, takes his data and places it inside a sleeping Sora, hoping that somehow the experiences of the past help save the future PHEW.... so that's it. I know some parts are out of order but im writting all this from ideas I had on my head and giving it structure as I go on, I hope you found in interesting and bring forth your own ideas about what you think I got right or not so right Thans for reading! May your heart be your guiding key
  2. THIS TRAILER IS SOOOOO BEAUTIFUL, BUT IT PLAYS WITH MY FEELINGS... UGHHH ?? I'm so excited to get my hands on this game, and I'm sure soooo many of you are as well!! Let me know what you think about this trailer and some of the things I discussed, did you see something I didn't?
  3. A sort of DmC: Devil May Cry inspired rework of our Dearly Beloved Kingdom Hearts franchise, The Kingdom of Hearts or TKoH for short is the story about all brand new main, primary protagonists of this new version of Kingdom Hearts trying to protect the aforementioned mythical, ancient, omnipotent and omniscient Heart of all Worlds from the clutches of both Darkness and all other sorts of evil forces...the premise behind The Kingdom of Hearts is that it not only explores both the Light and the Dark within everyone's Hearts but rather also both the Good and the Bad, the White and the Black, the Yang and the Yin, so on, so forth, all the kinds of things that represent balance itself, the theme of TKoH is balance and the story focuses on parallel versions of Sora, Riku and Kairi, as they soon get dragged into a fight for their very lives and must now at the very same time, master the arts of the Keyblade granted upon them...in this Role-play, Sora, Riku and Kairi are named "Sky", "Land" and "Sea" respectively and they are currently being taught under their mentors and foster figures of each one of them respectively named "Wind", "Earth" and "Water", the parallel versions of Ventus, Terra and Aqua...in the story of TKoH, long, long ago...in what was once called the Age of Fairy Tales, now called the "Age of Modern Man", there was a demon, a demon so powerful that it could feed off of the life force of other peoples' Hearts until eventually, nothing at all had remained of them, this demon was referred to by all, as the "Heartless Xehanort", basically Kingdom Hearts' version of Calamity Ganon from The Legend of Zelda's latest recent release Breath of the Wild...the Heartless Xehanort was once said according to legend to have been thirteen individuals each, however, upon completely surrendering their Hearts to the Darkness for whatever reason, power, fame, fortune, you name it...these 13 individuals' Hearts had been completely swallowed by the Dark and had then merged into one, which had become the evil monster, the Heartless Xehanort...in order to stop the Heartless Xehanort before it could wreak havoc upon the "World of Light", seven princesses from seven different kingdoms were chosen due to their royal bloodlines and the magical powers bestowed upon their Hearts due to those bloodlines and by combining all of their powers into one, they crafted a door leading to eternal Darkness, there, they had banished the Heartless Xehanort, hoping that the seal would forever remain intact and the evil beast kept locked away under lock and key forever...however, there are now those in the current present times who seek to revive the Heartless Xehanort, they call themselves a "Cult of Nobodies" and now this aforementioned cult are seeking new ways to revive the beast for whatever diabolical schemes they are hatching and are plotting, they have even gone, as far, as to conduct experiments, trying to mimic the original Heartless Xehanort itself in the forms of miniature beasts, more or less taking on the gargantuan monster's form, now, in order to save the World of Light and all of the smaller Worlds within its larger sphere of Worlds, Sky, the apprentice of Wind, Land, the apprentice of Earth and Sea, the apprentice of Water must now unite, as one and band together to face off against the Dark forces and machinations of the Cult of Nobodies before they even have the chance to revive the Heartless Xehanort, however...they must also learn the bonds of teamwork and friendship in the process if they are ever to have a standing fighting chance, for the three apprentices do not exactly get along so well with one another and now this is where balance fits into the story, they must learn to put aside their differences, work with each other, as well, as other people dedicated to the cause of stopping the Cult of Nobodies and the monstrous Heartless Xehanort and both use and unlock the true powers of their weapons, the "Keyswords" and thus with Keyswords in hand, the three set out from their home-worlds, as ordered by their masters and begin journeying to the smaller Worlds within the World of Light, hoping to learn new things and experiences in these Worlds before joining together, as one by meeting at the fated place and once there, the chosen three will prove themselves not only to all the people of the Realm of Light and their masters but also to themselves especially for a strong lesson in life is self reflection...another form of balance but now, enough talk, let the journey commence and the story begin, for this is TKoH, The Kingdom of Hearts. Rules: No Godmoding. No Romance above age 12. No Swearing above age 12. Please use proper grammar. This is a parallel universe setting of the Kingdom Hearts games so although it shares certain and similar themes and aspects with the games, the Role-play itself is meant to be an entirely original story more or less with borrowed ideas from both DmC: Devil May Cry and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, in the senses that it shows new versions of our favourite Characters and that they must combat a deadly nemesis that was once Human now more monster then the former respectively. Hints can be made to the original Kingdom Hearts games but not outright connections to the actual games, this is a different setting and universe that can be considered on the other side of the mirror of the Kingdom Hearts universe where the games take place, know what i mean? You cannot create Characters based on Sora, Riku, Kairi, Ventus, Terra and Aqua but other versions of Characters such, as Axel/Lea for example are available and just to put any person's mind at ease about the Cult of Nobodies being this universe's Organization XIII, they are not, they are merely a group of worshipers and followers that are trying to resurrect the ancient evil being, the Heartless Xehanort, anyone can create their own groups based on the Organization if they so wish to, however, monsters such, as the Heartless, Nobodies, Unversed and Dream Eaters will not appear in the story, instead, new monsters will appear that will be introduced when the story first kicks off hopefully. Keyswords are what the Keyblades are called in this universe and, as for X-Blades and Ultima Weapon Keyblades that appear in the Role-play, they are combined, as one in this universe and are called "Ultima Xs", Ultima Xs are what is referred to, as the final transformation and form of a Keysword once it has reached full maturity alongside its chosen wielder, they basically function like the Starlight Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts Chi does in terms of they can change shape upon a Character leveling up, each time a Character levels up upon reaching the numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and so on, a person can change the shape of their Keyblade if they so desire or just stay with its regular appearance, whichever suits the Role-players' preferences. Characters from other franchises, Final Fantasy can appear in the Role-play but they are parallel versions of their normal Kingdom Hearts selves which who of are parallels to begin with but the unique thing upon their inclusion is that they can be portrayed however they like, for examples, Sephiroth isn't a villain and is instead a hero and Cloud is not a brooder but rather a more sociable person, that's the fun in how these Characters can be portrayed within the Role-play, Final Fantasy, Disney and Kingdom Hearts Characters all alike, we can see new sides of them that we have never seen before. Please put down "One Destiny, Different Sky" to show that you have read the Rules at the end of your Character Sheets. You can have up to, as many Characters, as you can portray. Have fun! :]. P.S: The starting point for all Characters to meet up is the World known, as "Lux Town", it is the central hub World for the Role-play and where the Tutorial will take place, revealing how travelling to other Worlds is possible and is performed, how people fight with their weapons, especially Keyswords and where the heroes will learn of what the villains, the Cult of Nobodies are currently plotting, other Characters that are villainous may choose to align with the cult or not and work towards their own agendas, like Maleficent and Pete do in the games.

  4. Tagline: "...Our battle is over...but the war...has only just begun." Synopsis: Three and a half years have passed since the events of KINGDOM HEARTS III, in which Sora, aided by his fellow Guardians of Light had defeated both Master Xehanort and his Organization XIII comprised of various incarnations of himself and now, the Worlds are at peace, however...that does not mean that peace lasts forever, for now a both strange and mysterious new threat is attacking the universe and it is up to both Sora and friends to stop it, along the way they meet both old and new friends alike, exploring various and vast new Worlds unlike which they have ever seen beforehand, mastering new spells and abilities and also for Sora, gaining new Keyblades to fight with, as Sora begins this new adventure of his, he soon discovers that this new threat that is trying to destroy the galaxy is related in more ways then one to the legendary Keyblade War, of which Xehanort was trying to restart and had ultimately failed to do so, thanks to Sora and the others' efforts, at any rate, this new threat may very well be trying to get its hands on the one true χ-Blade, in order to unlock the mysteries of its counterpart, the one true Kingdom Hearts, to in turn become a god above both everything and everyone...in an attempt to stop this evil menace, Sora travels with both Donald Duck and Goofy once more to find out more about the enemy that they are currently facing whilst both Riku and King Mickey Mouse don the Black Coats of Organization XIII once more and travel across the Worlds through the Corridors of Darkness, attempting their own investigation into matters from their side, meanwhile, Master Yen Sid has both Kairi and Lea undertake the Mark of Mastery Exam, in the hopes that just like Sora and Riku beforehand will the two master new powers to combat this new threat, aiding in the training of the two are Merlin and the three good fairies, as requested their help by Yen Sid, in the meantime, Maleficent and Pete are up to their no good tricks again and are attempting to reassemble the council of Disney villains from the original KINGDOM Hearts to further their own goals of universal domination, Ventus, Terra and Aqua are on standby at the newly restored Land of Departure until given further orders by the revived Master Eraqus, Roxas, Axel, Xion and Namine are also on standby with Pence, Hayner and Olette in Twilight Town at the old mansion, finally, the Hollow Bastion Restoration Committee, along with the somebodies of Dilan, Even, Aeleus, Ienzo and the redeemed Isa, as well, as Ansem the Wise, having been restored to the wise sage and ruler of Radiant Garden are currently looking into matters regarding research on this new foe that everyone is now faced with... This new foe is said to be just about, as dangerous, as Xehanort was...maybe, even more so...aided by four henchmen, this new enemy and his servants don white versions of Organization XIII's Black Coats and all together call themselves the "Illuminati", the Illuminati lead creatures that feed off positive energy and vibes that they refer to, as the "Versed", said to be the exact opposites of the Unversed themselves, the Versed are easily identified by having the very same symbol, as the Unversed do upon their bodies, the only difference being that the colour for the Versed is white instead of the Unversed's black, a possible hint into the identity of who these new enemies are, namely their leader, as he bares a Unversed symbol zipper on his white coat, he calls himself "χ-Super" and under his white coat's hood, he is shown to wear a variation of Vanitas' helmet but with a large X across the helmet's face, whatever his intentions are currently unknown but he states that he will bring about what he calls the "Versus XIII" and whatever this means, most people tend to take it, as to him meaning that he is going to form another Organization XIII like Xehanort previously did in the past twice and is attempting to recreate the Keyblade War, now, on a mission to stop this possible raving lunatic, Sora and friends, old and new battle Heartless, Nobodies, Unversed, Dream Eaters and these new Versed monsters across all of the realms a person can think of and finally, the story that began with Xehanort's ambition will end once and for all here, at least that is what is going through Sora's mind at the moment but still he ponders, is there more to this Versus XIII? what exactly does it mean? all will be explained... This is KINGDOM HEARTS IV-The free Role-Play for everyone where they can experiment on what life would be like after the events of the Xehanort/Dark Seeker Saga have ended, please share with me your opinions on the story before i continue making the Character Sheets and Rules.
  5. After I theorised that Ventus is a potential Dandelion, the first thought that immediately popped into my head is that, the Reincarnation theory is shot down... but then again, the connections between the heroes and Fortellers are too coincidental not to make obvious comparisons. So I considered how else the Foretellers could be connected to the heroes, and then it dawned upon me: what if the heroes are spiritual successors as opposed to literal reincarnations. and Way2Dawn provided the perfect explanation. "Is it possible that we have the reincarnation theory completely backward? The Book of Prophecies projects images and illusions of the future, so is it possible that the Fortellers clothes were stylized based off of the Heroes of today that they felt closely connected to? So someone like Ava saw an image of Kairi being projected by the Book of Prophecies and felt a connection with her, so her robes are styled to fit Kairi's image?" Way2Dawn. Now only does this theory give a more simple and plausible explanation with the Fortellers and heroes, but, it doesn't have to diminish the uniqueness of the Foretellers in the process unlike the Reincarnation theory. So, here are the Kingdom Hearts X characters and the heroes that they molded themselves by using the Book of Prophecies. Master of Masters = Ansem the Wise Master Ava = Kairi Master Ira = Riku Master Aced = Terra Master Gula = Ventus Master Invi = Aqua Master Luxu = Axel
  6. There could be many ways for us to defeat Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts 3, so how do you think that we'll defeat him? Do you think we will destroy him for good? Or not? How do you think he'll be defeated specifically?
  7. I'll be explaining the various kinds of enemies in the Kingdom Hearts universe, how they're created, what happens when they die, and what their goals are. If you feel you are very familiar with the details and lore behind these enemies, then this post is not for you. Over a long time playing the Kingdom Hearts games, I've notice many people left confused about these enemies, whether it be in real life, or online, so I'm making this post to hopefully clear up that confusion. Enjoy! (This is a part of my "Explained" series of posts. To view my "Time Travel Explained" post, click here, to view my "The Braig/Xigbar Situation Explained" post, click here, and to view my "The Realm of Sleep Explained" post, click here.) What are Heartless? Heartless are the main and first enemy type introduced in the Kingdom Hearts series. Most of them are ink black in color and only act on instinct. They can be seen in various of the many worlds and realms in the universe of Kingdom Hearts. The stronger your heart is with the darkness, the more powerful your Heartless you produce will be. There are two types of Heartless: Pureblood Heartless and Emblem Heartless. What goal do Heartless try to achieve? Heartless mainly attempt to find and devour hearts, whether it be the heart of people, or the hearts of worlds. When they devour the heart of a person, then that person becomes a Heartless as well. Heartless, along with other beings strong with dark powers, are able to use portals called Corridors of Darkness. This portals allow them to travel from world to world and from realm to realm. It is dangerous for just anyone to use these portals however, because it is exposing you to direct darkness and it could affect your heart. That is why Heartless mostly use them since they are beings of straight darkness. How are Pureblood Heartless created? Pureblood Heartless were the first types of Heartless to exist. Pureblood Heartless are also known as natural Heartless, since they exist from natural causes. There are two ways a Pureblood Heartless can be created. The first way that a Pureblood Heartless can be created, is when someone succumbs to the darkness in their heart. Once this happens, the darkness inside their heart will devour their heart, then that darkness becomes a Pureblood Heartless. The second way that a Pureblood Heartless can be created is simply by drawing parts of the darkness out of your heart. Only beings that are strong with the darkness are able to do this, such as Xehanort. For example, in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Xehanort was able to create Neoshadow Heartless simply by drawing out the darkness in his heart. Similarly, Riku in the first Kingdom Hearts, was able to create an AntiSora Heartless simply by drawing out the darkness in his heart. Pureblood Heartless are simply darkness of the heart, made flesh. When a heart is unlocked or succumbs to the darkness, the darkness within comes out and becomes a Pureblood Heartless, and devours the heart while it's at it. When a Pureblood Heartless devours someone else's heart, then the darkness within that person's heart will come out and become a Pureblood Heartless as well. When Heartless devour the heart of a world, that world falls to darkness, meaning it ends up in the Realm of Darkness. How are Emblem Heartless created? Emblem Heartless were originally created by a machine made by Apprentice Xehanort, along with the other apprentices of Ansem the Wise. This machine reproduced the process in which Pureblood Heartless are created. This means that this machine was able to produce artificial Heartless by making hearts be consumed by darkness. Emblem Heartless are essentially darkness that has a trapped heart inside, unlike Pureblood Heartless which are essentially darkness that have devoured the heart and become one with it. Emblem Heartless can also be created when an Emblem Heartless consumes someone else's heart, just like how Pureblood Heartless are created when a Pureblood Heartless consumes someone else's heart. What happens when Heartless are destroyed? When you destroy a Pureblood Heartless, the heart within them isn't visibly/physically released, but it is definitely freed. The freed heart will eventually end up turning back into a Heartless. When a Pureblood Heartless is destroyed by a Keyblade, then it's freed for good. It goes into a sort of limbo state and waits for the corresponding Nobody to be destroyed so that it can combine back with the body and recomplete the original person. If the person has no corresponding Nobody, then all you have to do to recomplete them is destroy their Heartless (with a Keyblade) since their body is already waiting in the limbo state. When Emblem Heartless are destroyed, the corrupted heart that's freed will end up turning back into a Heartless, just like the Pureblood Heartless. Except the hearts are visibly freed. When Emblem Heartless are destroyed by a Keyblade, the heart is freed for good and goes into the aforementioned limbo state and waits for the Nobody counterpart to be destroyed, just like the Pureblood Heartless. If there is no Nobody counterpart, then all you need to do to recomplete the original person is to destroy the Heartless with a Keyblade. Them being destroyed by a Keyblade also allows Organization XIII to be able to collect the hearts before they get a chance to recomplete. What are Nobodies? Nobodies were the second enemy type introduced in the Kingdom Hearts series. They are mainly white in color, and they lack hearts. Many Nobodies also use Corridors of Darkness as well. Since they have no hearts, Corridors of Darkness are a huge convenience for them since they can use them without being affected. What goal do Nobodies try and achieve? Nobodies do not have a direct goal. Unlike Heartless, Nobodies have a sense of self, so they are basically free to do what they please. Most of them however, work together to achieve the one thing they truly want: their hearts. Since Nobodies have no hearts, they do not have emotions or feelings. They do however remember what it was like to have emotions and feelings. How are Nobodies created? When somebody loses their heart and become a Heartless, their body and soul fade away and wait for its Heartless counterpart to be destroyed by a Keyblade so the original person can be recompleted. If you had a particularly strong heart however, then your soul will continue living on inside of your body, therefore making your body live on as well. This is what a Nobody is. The stronger your heart was, the more humanoid and the more like you, your Nobody looks. People with slightly weaker hearts, become less and less human looking and take the form of creature type beings that somewhat resemble Heartless, other than the color differences. Organization XIII, a group of powerful Nobodies, are able to convert other powerful Nobodies into lesser, creature-type Nobodies, such as Dusks, as well, presumably using a machine to do so. What happens when Nobodies are destroyed? If a Nobody is destroyed, then it fades away. When someone's Nobody and corresponding Heartless are both destroyed, then that original person will return as a complete being, with heart, body, and soul all intact. (The Heartless needs to be destroyed by a Keyblade). If somebody didn't have a strong enough heart to produce a Nobody, then simply destroying their Heartless with a Keyblade will make them return since their body and soul, the things that would have created a Nobody, have already been destroyed. When you return as a complete being, you have all of your memories from when you were a Nobody as well as your old memories. You do not remember your time as a Heartless though. Other Information Nobodies are actually able to regrow hearts of their own. It is currently unknown what the specifics of this are and what the exact process is. Nobodies have the memories of when they were people. What are Unversed? Unversed are beings created by extremely strong negative emotions. They spawn from Vanitas and his emotions particularly, presumably because there is no other being with negative emotions as strong as his since he is a being of pure darkness. The negative emotions are so strong, that they take physical form, which is what Unversed are. Their goal is to do whatever Vanitas orders them to do, and when they are destroyed, their negativity flows right back into Vanitas. What are Dream Eaters? Dream Eaters are beings that exist and are born in the Realm of Sleep. They can also be created artificially. They are the Realm of Sleep's own personal way of darkness taking form as creatures. They are also the physical embodiments of dreams. They consume dreams. There are two types of Dream Eaters: Spirits and Nightmares. Spirits eat bad dreams, while Nightmares eat good dreams and plant bad ones. When they are destroyed, they seem to simply vanish, but Dream Eaters essentially work the same way dreams do since they are the physical embodiments of dreams, so all you'd have to do to get a Dream Eater to return after being destroyed is to dream it up again. That would be pretty difficult though since you can't really control what you dream about. Sora and Riku used fragments they collected from Nightmare Dream Eaters to artificially create their own Spirit Dream Eaters. The Master of Masters artificially created Spirit Chirithy Dream Eaters as well, probably using the same method as Sora and Riku. That is what we know so far about all the enemy types in the Kingdom Hearts universe. Now, I will explain various characters' involvements with these enemy types and how they relate to them. Sora In the first Kingdom Hearts, Sora stabbed himself in the heart with the Keyblade of Heart. This unlocked his heart, therefore making the darkness in his heart come out and become a Pureblood Heartless. When Sora stabbed himself with the Keyblade of Heart, he had Kairi and Ventus' hearts inside of him. This also created Sora's Nobody, Roxas. Roxas is a special Nobody since he was created by a unique circumstance. Since Sora had Ventus' heart inside of him, Ventus' heart went with his body and soul (Roxas) and went inside of Roxas. Kairi's heart returned to her body and she was recompleted. Since Kairi is a Princess of Heart, she has special light abilities. Since this is the case, she was able to purify Sora's Heartless and bring him back to his human form. Sora was able to return back to his human form without the need and use of his body or soul, which is an extremely unique circumstance. He had technically become a walking, talking heart, until Roxas returned to him. Another thing to mention is how Sora's Heartless had a sense of self. When you willingly give in to the darkness and become a Heartless, then your Heartless will have a sense of self. Roxas Roxas is the Nobody of Sora. He took on the appearance of Ventus since he has Ventus' heart inside of him. Roxas has since returned back to Sora, and Sora is complete again. Roxas lacks his memory from when he was Sora because Sora's time as a Heartless was so short. Kairi Kairi is one of the Seven Princesses of Heart, so she doesn't have any darkness within her heart whatsoever. Since this is the case, when her heart left her body, no Heartless was created. Her heart took refuge within Sora and was later returned to her body when Sora stabbed himself with the Keyblade of Heart and she was recompleted. Since she is a Princess of Heart and couldn't produce a Heartless, no Nobody was created either. Her body did not fade away since she had a strong heart, but it did not turn into a Nobody either since she had no darkness within her heart to turn into a Heartless, so her body stayed in a sort of comatose state until her heart returned to her. Like I stated before, she could not produce a Nobody since there was no darkness within her heart to produce a Heartless. But, when Sora stabbed himself with the Keyblade of Heart, Kairi's heart was released, which then created a Nobody of Kairi since Sora did have darkness within his heart. Naminé Naminé is the Nobody of Kairi that was created by Sora instead of Kairi, as explained above. Since she was not created by a body or soul, she technically doesn't exist and shouldn't exist, but she does anyway. It is an extremely unique and special circumstance. Since she was created by such a unique circumstance and has a unique bond with Sora since she was created by him instead of Kairi, she is able to manipulate Sora's memories and the people's memories who are close to him. She has since returned to Kairi and Kairi is a complete person again. As stated above, Roxas has no memories of his time as Sora because Sora's time as a Heartless was so short. Naminé lacks her memory of her time as Kairi for this same reason. Naminé doesn't have her memory of her time as Kairi because Kairi never even had a Heartless to begin with. Terra-Xehanort Terra-Xehanort, also known as Apprentice Xehanort, is Terra's body taken over by Xehanort and is being used as a host body for Xehanort. He worked as an apprentice under the scientist, Ansem the Wise, so he can get close to the technology and resources that he has. He tested on different people and their hearts to see what affects different tests had. All of his tests ended in the people's hearts collapsing. He locked these people up in cells in a dungeon and since their hearts were collapsing, the darkness within them came out and consumed their hearts and became Pureblood Heartless. Heartless were very rare before these experiments occurred. He then created another test. He put alive people and dead people in the cell with these Heartless. The Heartless went for the alive people, because they had hearts. This caused the Heartless to increase in numbers. Apprentice Xehanort, along with the other apprentices of Ansem the Wise, then created a machine. This machine was the machine stated earlier that artificially created Heartless, known as Emblem Heartless. Later, Terra-Xehanort turned most of the apprentices into Pureblood Heartless by stabbing them all with his Keyblade. He also succumbed to the darkness and became a Pureblood Heartless himself. Ansem, Seeker of Darkness Ansem, Seeker of Darkness is the Heartless of Terra-Xehanort. He was created when the Robed Figure let himself be consumed by the darkness in his heart, therefore becoming a Heartless. That is what Ansem, Seeker of Darkness is. He had a sense of self, just like Sora's Heartless did, because he willingly became a Heartless. He is one of the only people to retain a human appearance after becoming a Heartless. He has since been destroyed by Sora. Scar Scar gave into the darkness in his heart, which caused the darkness within his heart to come out, consume his heart, then turn into a Pureblood Heartless. Scar retained his regular appearance, much like Ansem, Seeker of Darkness. He also had a sense of self, because he willingly became a Heartless. After Scar's Heartless was defeated, a strange and unique phenomenon occurred. Beings known as The Ghosts of Scar were formed from the lingering darkness of Scar. It is unknown why or how this exactly happened, and it is unknown if these "ghosts" would be classified as Heartless or not, but they were able to merge together to create an Emblem Heartless known as a Groundshaker, which is an even stranger phenomenon that has no current explanation. Xemnas Xemnas is the Nobody of Terra-Xehanort, created when Terra-Xehanort succumbed to the darkness and became a Heartless. Xemnas has since been destroyed by Sora. Since both Xehanort's Heartless and Nobody have been destroyed, Xehanort has returned as a complete person. Vanitas Vanitas is the darkness from inside of Ventus, taken humanoid form. Ventus was used by Xehanort to try and fulfill his plan of recreating the χ-blade. To recreate the χ-blade, two beings, one of pure light, and one of pure darkness, need to clash. So, Xehanort extracted the darkness side of Ventus' heart from within Ventus and it took a physical, humanoid form, known as Vanitas. Since Vanitas is a being of complete darkness, without a single bit of light within him, he produces extremely strong negative emotions. These negative emotions are so strong, that they take physical forms, known as Unversed. Riku In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Riku is considered to be a Dream Eater, because he has the ability to dive into Sora's dreams, and defeat the bad dreams, just like a Spirit Dream Eater would. That's it! I hope this was able to help anyone who was puzzled or somewhat confused with any of the enemies in the Kingdom Hearts universe Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below.

    Random Trio (2)

    another random trio i draw since last month (i guess) but glad you guy liked the young ver.of masako ^^
  11. Ansem The Wise as a character has always intrigued me, I have always found there to be more than meets the eye with him, anyway I was wondering what capacity he would appear in KH3? I was re-watching Blank Points earlier and the fact he mentions he is waiting for his birth by sleep suggests he will possibly return? I mean Aqua as far as we know is still with him in the Realm of Darkness, so it makes sense to rescue him too, surely? Also with regards to KH3D, the data version of Ansem tells Riku that his data is stored within Sora to rescue those we thought were lost, this has been such a vague topic, the data could be anything and as far as we know could be linked to the Key to Return Hearts, I know Ansem lost his memories, but I still feel as if he will return in some form in KH3. Thanks for reading
  12. The scene that we saw with Aqua could be her trying to find a way to leave the Realm of Darkness after meeting Ansem the Wise and him telling her about Sora. Then Mickey & Riku enters the Realm of Darkness themselves and finds Aqua in the middle of a huge fight with Heartless & them joining her in her fight. After that, Mickey tells Aqua that they can escape & she can help them find Ven. When they find Ven & awakens him, the four of them heads to Disney Castle, go through the portal into the Keyblade Graveyard and recruit the Lingering Will to help fight Master Xehanort.
  13. Hello Kh13.com! My name is Aaron! I am entering this topic fpr the chance to win the new localized volume four manga of Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. For my story I want to let each and every one of you know this is my first tome doing this, I have never really written a fan-fiction of my own before. I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to read this, and I respect everyone's opinions on this, whether or not they are negative or positive. This story will be an attempt to portray the story of Larxene (who I interpret as Arlene) and Marluxia (using the interpretation of the name Lumaria) when they were human while also incorporating characters from certain Final Fantasy games such as "Final Fantasy X" and "Final Fantasy XIII". A Salty yet Sweet Truth By Aaron Reynolds Prior to the events of "Birth by Sleep", in the Radiant Garden castle of which Ansem The Wise resides, Even is put in charge of caring for young Ienzo who can barely form a sentence due to loss. It is in those feelings of loss that he attracts certain unwanted attention to the castle grounds. Aeleus and Dilan try to resolve the matter by defeating many unversed but to no avail as they seem to keep coming back. Ansem summons Even to discuss the matter at hand. Master Ansem: Even! May I speak with you? Even: Why yes Master! How may I be of assistance? Master Ansem: It has been two weeks since Ienzo has joined us. I fear we may never discover his origins, nor the locations of his dear parents. In time he may begin to wonder why he is here, I would like to make him a welcome member of our community, however I cannot find a suitable way of making him feel as if he were at home. *Ienzo peeks through the door* Even: It is certainly one thing to care for the boy after all this time, however might I imply that we cannot keep pretending to be his surrogate parents nor can we properly bring him up in our studies! The boy still refuses to learn! Master Ansem: Then perhaps it is time for a different approach, one that excludes homework. *Ienzo tilts his head towards Ansem* Even: What might that be Master Ansem? Master Ansem: I will take the boy to the square, a bit of time out of the castle might do him some good. We may not be capable of teaching him, however we can show him we are at least decent people. Even: As you wish Master, now if you'lI excuse me I will return to my research for now. Master Ansem: The Replica program I presume? Even: Precisely Master! Master Ansem: I shall leave you to it. *Ienzo comes out from the door and joins Ansem* Master Ansem: Why good afternoon young master! shall we be off? *Ienzo nods his head as he holds Ansem's hand". Meanwhile in Twilight Town a struggle tournament is being held, everyone is attending as it is close to the end of summer vacation for many students. Even the NORA gang (a small group of juvenile youngsters) showed up to see their leader Snow stand up to the challenge. Yuj: Hey Snow! Are you gonna be at the the struggle tournament later? Snow: You better believe it! Lebreau: I heard so many people signed up for it, but why? Snow: It's a dream come true that's why! Everyone gets these special orbs, the point of the game is to knock all the orbs out of the other person's pockets and grab them before they hit you back! It's as simple as that! Absolutely no rules! Gadot: Well there ARE some rules. Apparently you gotta have to have more orbs than the person you're fighting. Otherwise you lose no matter what. Lebreau: I really don't see the point in it all, I mean what is so fun about hitting each other with a bat all day? Maqui: Well like Snow said there really aren't that many restrictions on how to win. In any case it'll be fun to watch! Snow: Yeah you said it Maqui! Now where is she.... Lebreau: You talking about Light? Snow: Hey don't go saying her name out loud! *all of the sudden he hears a girl speaking from behind him* Lightning: What's wrong Snow? You afraid I might challenge you to a duel? Snow: W-what? No way! I would never challenge you Light! Lightning: I'll tell you what, if I win in the tournament you'll have to buy us all ice cream! Snow: That's- Lightning: Deal? Snow: Fine! But if I win, that Ice cream is on you! *Meanwhile in the crowd a little girl pops up from behind Yuj and Gadot* Serah: Hey Snow! Snow! Yuj: Oh hey Serah! Sorry but I think the tournaments about to begin. Serah: I missed him? Yuj: Afraid so. *Suddenly the crowd sees the first two combatants* Announcer: Snow, the leader of the Nora kids, versus Bartz, a boy so talented he can copy any moves his opponents make! Snow: Let's make this quick! Bartz: Let's do it! *As the two are fighting, throwing attack after attack toward one another, Serah shouts from the audience* Serah: Look at Snow! He's just so awesome! Gadot: The other guy sure is fast though. Maqui: I think it's cause he keeps copying Snows moves. *Bartz runs past Snow about to swing his bat at him from behind, then surprisingly Snow back flips and strikes Bartz from behind* Announcer: And the match is over! Bartz: Aw man! Snow: That was fun! Bartz: THAT WAS FUN! (Mimicing Snow) Hey we should do that again sometime! *Bartz leaves the stage* Snow: Heh, funny guy. Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the next opponent is Lightning! Childhood friend of Snow, she is fast and does not give up so easily! Serah: Sis? I didn't know you joined the tournament! *Looking over at Snow then looking toward at Serah Lightning winks* Lightning: Alright Snow time to make good on that promise! Snow: Time to make good on yours too Light! *The two get locked in an intense battle, having fun, channeling eachother's energy, and striking nimbly at each other while trying to take the orbs* Yuj: Go Snow! Gadot: You got this Snow! Serah: I'm not even sure who to cheer for! I hope whoever wins get's to win the tournament! *Snow jumps over and grabs one of Lightning's orbs then accidentally falls over dropping on of his orbs* *As the match is about to end Lightning runs over and takes out his bat in a speedy motion, then just as Snow get's up, she zips past him knocking all his red orbs in the air. Snow looks over at Lightning in a state of shock, and falls to the ground on his back.* Lightning: That wasn't too bad of a fight! Snow: Well, a promise is a promise. Lightning: On the bright side, Snow. Looks like you got a fan out of all this. *Snow looks at Serah jumping ecstatically shouting his name!* Serah: You did great Snow! You really gave it your all! You too sis! *The two friends smiled at each other as Lightning helped Snow back on his feet* Announcer: We have a new challenger today. Everyone give it up for Lumaria! A boy who came her all the way from Radiant Garden! Snow: A boy from another world? Lightning: this should be interesting. *Everyone watches as the mysterious pink haired youth battles his way through the remaining two opponents in order to reach Lightning* Lightning: I have to say I like the you fight. Lumaria: ... Lightning: Not much for talk huh? Well here goes! *The struggle match commences and the two are giving it all their energy. Lumaria is no ordinary boy, but he seems to posses a powerful strategy, he makes it so Lightning can't attack him, blocking all her moves* Lightning: Argh! How can he move like that? Lumaria: Take this! *Lightning flinches and the. Loses and orb* Lightning: Can't be serious! Lumaria: This ones for you Arlene! *He charges at full speed at Lightning* Lightning: Aaargh! *She blocks his move and takes back her orb* Lightning: Where did you learn to move like that? Lumaria: It doesn't matter, I was gonna win that trophy for Arlene. Lightning: Oh. I see. *Lumaria walks off the stage depressed* Announcer: Aaaand last but certainty not least! Everyone please welcome the Struggle Champion! Jecht! Jecht: Well, looks like someone finally got up to the challenge. Lightning: I hope you know sir, I don't intend to lose! Jecht: I can understand, but you should know, I'm the best! *Another intense fight lights up the stage and all are amazed at the quick but shocking outcome* Lightning: Take ths! Jecht: Sorry kid! *Jecht swings his bat around and does a backflip, then throws his bat at Lightning as if it were a ball. Startled Lightning falls on her side dropping all her orbs and the match is over* Lightning: How could I- How did I- Jecht: It's called luck kid, and it looks like you just ran out. See you forgot one thing: I'm the best! Lightning: Ugh..... Jecht: Don't go cryng or anything, it is just a game. Here. *Jecht helps her up* Jecht: The important thing is not to battle with your strength alone but also with your heart. If you got a strong enough heart, you don't need to go and bash everything in your path you see, you just gotta believe in your inner strength. Lightning: Thank you sir. *Lightning rejoins the others and her sister and they all go out to the Station to have Ice Cream. A little yellow marble rolls over to Lumaria. He examines it and takes it with him* Maqui: I hear there's this new flavor they got at the ice cream shop. Snow: What's it called? Maqui: Well according to the menu it's from Radient Garden; Sea-Salt Ice Cream, I think it's called. Lebreau: Hey guys I think someone's following us. Snow: Sea Salt? Who would buy something like that? Hey wasn't that guy also from Radiant Garden? Lebreau: Guys! He's right behind us! Lumaria: It's a good flavor! You should try it for yourself! *Behind the NORA gang is Lumaria* Lumaria: I would. Me and my friend Arlene always picked that flavor. Lightning: You again? Lumaria: Sorry for how I acted earlier. Lightning: No I get it, you have a lot on your mind. Who is Arlene? Lumaria: Well she was a friend of mine, but father said I couldn't be friends with her anymore. I tried to reason with him but, he said if I showed I really cared about her enough I would need proof. Which is why I entered the tournament, to win the trophy and prove I was good enough. Snow: That's kinda harsh. Hey wait you said you were from Radiant Garden right? Lumaria: Uh-huh Snow: how did you get here? *Meanwhile back at Radiant Garden* Master Ansem: You see Ienzo we live in a mysterious and wonderful world. There is a theory based on an ancient tale told by many of the towns people. Once the worlds were all connected safely guarded by the light, then one day darkness shrouded the mind of those wanting the great light, and so their actions brought upon the destruction of the world and broke it apart. However each piece of the world remained intact thanks to the ever glowing light in the hearts of children. *Ienzo quietly listens to what the Wise sage has to say* Master Ansem: Ah here we are. Moogle: Can I help you good sir? Kupo? Master Ansem: Two Sea Salt Ice Cream sticks please! Moogle: Coming right up Kupo! *Ansem the Wise hands Ienzo a stick and as the two walk back to the castle, Ienzo lets out a small but noticeable smirk, the two would be as teacher and student from here on* Moogle: Oh! Another customer! What can I get for you miss? Arlene: Hee-hee *Arlenes scurries away* Moogle: Kupo? *The moogle turns around to see his shop filled with ignited fireworks. Each going off at the same time. Sparks fly everywhere startling the poor moogle* Moogle: Hey that wasn't nice kupo! Where are your manners kupo!? Kids these days kupo.... *Meanwhile back at Twilight Town* Snow: So you're saying you used a portal to get here? Lumaria: Yes! A glowing dark one! I see them more often lately because a masked boy keeps leaving them open. They say monsters can be heard from inside sometimes. Snow: Really?! So who is this masked boy? Serah: I'm sorry to hear about your father, it would stink if I couldn't spend time with Snow anymore. Lightning: Believe me that would be a dream come true. Serah: Hey! *Everyone starts laughing* Yuj: Well let's go look for this portal! You gotta get home somehow! Lumaria: Right. My dad is probably wondering where I am at the moment. Snow: Let's get you home Lumaria! Alright team NORA, lets move! Lumaria: Thanks Snow! You can call me Luma for short. Snow: Alright then, Luma it is! You can count on us to find the portal! *And so the team restlessly searched everywhere for this portal but to no avail. The portal would not be found so easily, but just then a mysterious masked boy steps out into to open streets* Masked boy: This world looks like it could use some excitement. *Unversed start flowing from a portal left open from the masked boy* Lightning: Snow look! Lumaria: There it is! Snow: Wait a second... Look out there are monsters coming out of that thing! Serah: Eek. Get em Lightning! Lightning: Serah stay back! *The unversed start scanning the area and suddenly notice the stress within Lumaria. As they are about to strike a strong yell can be heard from over the buiding* Jecht: Arrgh! Get going! Lightning: You? Jecht: I'll deal with the pip-squeaks you just get that kid out of here! Rrragh! *Jecht faces all the unversed by himself. Allowing the NORA kids yo get away. At the portal-* Lightning: Are you sure you'll be alright? Lumaria: Yeah I'll be fine. I didn't realize it at the time but. I noticed. You have really nice hair. Lightning: *blushing*. Yeah so? Lumaria: I didn't think I'd have to leave so soon, but I just wanted to say thank you all, your all my new friends! Lightning: Be careful in there. No more crazy stunts. Snow: Although I admire that try not to get careless. Yuj: Look who's talking? Lumaria: Alright, I'll see you again someday! I hope. *Lumaria steps through, waving good-bye to his new friends, and runs till he sees the portal to Radiant Garden. The darkness starts to chase him, but Lumaria escapes and falls on his back* Lumaria: Oh my head. Arlene: Your back! Your back! Your back! Lumaria: Whoa! Don't do that to me! Arlene: Did you get the trophy? The struggle thingy? Lumaria: No Arlene. I didn't get anything. Arlene: You idiot! How could you! Now I don't have anyone to play with anymore! Lumaria: It's okay Arlene, I did get something. Alrene: What is it? Lumaria I think it's a piece of that trophy they always give away. It must have dropped and I picked it up. Here you can have it. It reminded me of you. Arlene: You're not gonna talk to your father? Lumaria: I am, but instead of giving him something I think he'll understand if I just told him the truth. Arlene: Okay, whatever you say! *Arlene skips over to the moogle shop and sees nobody there anymore. Meanwhile the moogle is hiding behind the counter* Moogle: That girl is trouble Kupo! *Back at Lumaria's house, he talks to his father, and instead of scolding him his father gives him a "wild rose".* Lumaria: what am I gonna do with this? Lumaria's father: Friendship is more than an object. Sometimes you need it to grow over time. Just remember this rose whenever you are facing a hard decision. You have a strong heart son. Strong enough to someday run your own castle like the the great Ansem the Wise. While I don't quite like that friend of yours I can't stop you from wanting to be with her, just be careful you two. Lumaria: Okay *back outside* Arlene: what did he say? Lumaria: We can still hang out Arlene: You really are an idiot for going through all that just to talk to me! Lumaria: Why thank you, at least you got someone to talk to, with an attitude like yours someone has to keep you in check. Arlene: Heheh. Someday we'll have a castle just like that one right? Lumaria: Yeah someday. Arlene: I don't care if no one likes me, I just don't want to be alone! Lumaria: Then you should stop being mean to them. It's not that no one likes you. Arlene: You sound just like them! Shut up! *Arlene runs off* Lumaria: Wait Arlene! *Back in Twilight Town Snow, Lightning, Serah and the others are all seen sitting together enjoying the new Sea-Salt Ice Cream flavor. Lea and Isa also enjoy a sea-salt back in Radiant Garden. In a flash of events ten years pass and Ansem the Wise is betrayed by his six apprentices. Lumaria is recruited into the Orginization as a Nobody who had held on to his body thanks to the strength in his heart, he had forgotten what it was like to be human and in all that time forgot that he had fought so hard for Arlene. Marluxia had recommended that Arlene be recruited as well as a sort of instinct to hold on to his memories. Though the organization had thought of Arlene as erratic and not fit for the task, Marluxia had insisted that the strength in her heart had grown strong as the loneliness she felt darkened her heart and allowed her to become a powerful Nobody. After that number XII Larxene had been recruited. Meanwhile Zexion recalled a time he was close to Ansem and in remembering how Xehanort overthrew him, that lead him to join Marluxia in his scheme to overthrow the organization and gain the power of the keyblade wielder. In Twilight Town Lightning and her friends all went their separate ways and over the years as darkness descended. Lightning found her way into Traverse Town where she searched for her sister, instead she found a girl named Lumina who used to the power of darkness to summon her there. As for the NORA gang they dispersed as Snow went instead to Hollow Bastion to find Serah and still searches for her there. As for Jecht, he had long past left his son Tidus to embark on a journey from which he would never return, and he accepted the darkness within his heart and became a monster. The tradition of eating the Sea-Salt Ice cream would pass on to Hayner, Pence, and Olette, the soon Roxas, Axel and Xion, and Sora, Riku and Kairi. Now we are at the present. *Sometime after defeating Xemnas, in the months before Sora and Riku got the letter from King Mickey. Sora, Riku and Kairi purchase a batch of fresh sea-salt Ice Cream. As the sun is setting on the Destiny Isles, Sora reminisces about the good times he had in twilight town as Roxas, not even curious as to how he has these memories. He doesn't quite remember then fully but he can feel that he has tasted this ice cream and sat in the the setting sun with two of his best friends.* Sora: Hey Riku. Riku: Yeah? Sora: You said you met Roxas right? Riku: That's right. Sora: What was he like? Riku: Well for one thing, he liked Sea-Salt Ice Cream. Sora: C'mon! You were the only one of us who actually met him in person! You had to have known something about him! Riku: Well. He always seemed concerned about this girl. Sora: What girl? Namine? Kairi: It wouldn't surprise me, those two looked pretty close. Riku: No it wasn't quite Namine he was concerned about.... Weird it's like no matter how much I try I can't remember or see what they looked like. I just know, besides Axel, there was someone who Roxas really liked. Sora: A girl who Roxas really liked. *Sora looked at his Ice Cream for a moment, and in a flash of memory he saw a girl with black hair who looked like Kairi, but only for a second.* Kairi: Sora? Are you alright? Where did you go? Sora: Huh? No, I was just thinking about something. Riku: And? Sora: Well lately I've been having these weird dreams. I keep seeing Namine in them. It's like she's trying to tell me something. But I can't think of it. Riku: Maybe you just need rest. Kairi: Yeah you've been thinking a lot lately. Sora: I guess I have. *meanwhile in Sora's heart* Roxas: I hope he gets the message soon. I really do. I hate to seem him this way, so confused. Ven's heart: Don't worry I have a feeling a feeling you'll get to show him, soon, in his dreams. Roxas: What if he doesn't understand? Ven's heart: He will, someday he will. *Flash back to Twilight town during the days Roxas was with the organization.* Roxas: Hey you guys! Have you seen any heartless around here? Yuj: .... Gadot: ...... Lebreau: ..... Maqui: ....what's a heartless? Roxas: Oh y'know.... A creature created from the darkness, right Marluxia? *Marluxia enters* Marluxia: Correct Roxas. And with the aid of that keyblade of yours, you are able to defeat those heartless and in doing so release their hearts. A truly remarkable weapon. Roxas: Um yeah, so that's why I ask. Gadot: There haven't been such things here, not that we know of anyway. Marluxia: Roxas, we must continue onward- *Marluxia stopped and stares for a moment at the NORA members, recalling a time he had been helped by them.* Marluxia: You all should be wary of the darkness, it consumes even the strongest of hearts. *With that Roxas and Marluxia left the scene* *Back to Sora* Sora: Why do I remember that now? Riku: Hey Sora! Tidus and Wakka want to spar, you want in? Sora: Umm I'll catch up with you guys. Riku: .... (That's so unlike him, usually he's as upbeat as ever. Ever since he found out Roxas was inside him he's changed). Riku: Hey Sora! Sora! (I guess he left). *Later that night* Sora: Another dream about him.... Riku: Sora! I'm glad I found you. What are you doing out here so late? Sora: I keep seeing Roxas in my dreams. Do you think he had the same dreams about me? Riku: I'm pretty sure he did, but they never did him any good, he kept chasing them wanting to find answers, and all he found was more questions. Sora: I still wish I had more time to talk with him. I still had something I wanted to say to him. Riku: Remember what I told you when we were kids? You might need to look deep inside your heart. You'll get to someday, just wait. Sora: Yeah. Maybe in my dreams.... Riku: Maybe. Sora: Sorry for worrying you guys. Riku: Ah it's fine as long as your still you. Sora: light and darkness. Riku: huh? Sora: it's like the ice cream we had earlier, salty yet sweet. Riku: Yeah. Exactly. The two heroes looked upon the ocean at night, unprepared for what awaited them next. Later on in the realm of sleep. "Riku......" "Riku..........." "So much to do....." "So little time". Riku: What? "Chosen wielder of the keyblade, step fourth and choose your destiny" Riku: I don't understand! "Nor need you...." "Ask yourself Riku...." "Are you worthy of wielding that which had been passed down to you?" Riku: The keyblade? "Walking the path of darkness has changed you....." "You must now awaken the light deep with yourself". "You must become a Keyblade Master". Riku: But how? How will I know if I'm worthy? "Remember...." "You hold the most powerful weapon of all". *And so the next day Sora, Riku and Kairi would receive word from the king himself. It was time for yet another adventure.* I hope you enjoyed this story!
