This should be my last thread for the game, sorry to be such a pain guys!

1. What did Xehanort mean he had different paths to go down? Also how come he and Terra do not have amnesia but Terranort does?

2. What does all the poetry starting with "Images of their backs, preserved in memory" mean? Like the different lines.

3. Aqua is in the RoD after Sora defeats Xemnas and that's when she meets ATW?

4. How were Terra and Ven both at Land of Departure and both said Sora? Did this not actually happen?

5. Who did Sora have to go to? And why?

1. What did Xehanort mean he had different paths to go down?
Xehanort is referencing the many plans he has made to try and obtain access to Kingdom Hearts, for example creating a Kingdom Hearts through destroying worlds (KH1) or gathering the hearts of man (KH2) or making an army of himself to clash 7 hearts aligned with the light vs 13 hearts aligned with darkness...

Also how come he and Terra do not have amnesia but Terranort does?
This is another mystery of the series. It is hinted that Apprentice Xehanort may not have actually ever had amnesia but it hasn't really been clearly explained by the games. We only have Braig's comments in BBS and KH3D and Nomura's interview comments to go from.

And of course we cannot trust Xehanort's Reports in KH1 since he was proven to be lying.

2. What does all the poetry starting with "Images of their backs, preserved in memory" mean? Like the different lines.
"Hidden truths" - Xehanort has some secrets and plans, Terra has Eraqus in his heart.

"Image of their backs, preserved in memory." - This is a pivotal moment that Ansem the Wise and Ienzo were witness to.

"Two who were never meant to meet" - If Xehanort had never meddled with anything, neither Aqua or Ansem the Wise would have been in the Realm of Darkness.

"All the pieces lie where they fell" - Everybody who is in need of saving...still needs saving. (Throwback turn of phrase to KH2's opening)

"Where they wait for him..." - Everybody is waiting for Sora to save them...give them their "Birth By Sleep"...mend their hurt...do the Jesus-y thing.

3. Aqua is in the RoD after Sora defeats Xemnas and that's when she meets ATW?
Yes. Aqua has been in the Realm of Darkness for almost 12 years.

4. How were Terra and Ven both at Land of Departure and both said Sora? Did this not actually happen?
It's a metaphorical "we are waiting to be saved" thing. They aren't really there.

5. Who did Sora have to go to? And why?
Mickey's letter tells him there are people who are in a lot of pain (Aqua, Terra, Ven, Roxas, Xion, Naminé) and he needs to go to Yen Sid, which he does in KH3D.

Sora has to undergo training to become a Master/gain the power to restore sleeping hearts.

1. What did Xehanort mean he had different paths to go down?
He was referring to how he had planned back up plans. Braig/Xigbar is the most obvious, as Xehanort had implanted a part of his heart in him.

Also how come he and Terra do not have amnesia but Terranort does?
It's not clarified. We also don't know when the conversation between Terra and MX takes place.

2. What does all the poetry starting with "Images of their backs, preserved in memory" mean? Like the different lines.
They're just fancy lines describing the scenes?

3. Aqua is in the RoD after Sora defeats Xemnas and that's when she meets ATW?
Yes their meeting is taking place post-KH2.

4. How were Terra and Ven both at Land of Departure and both said Sora? Did this not actually happen?
It didn't really happen. All of the scenes of people saying Sora's name are symbolic.

5. Who did Sora have to go to? And why?
This is answered in Re:Coded. Basically, he's leaving to find a way to save all the people who said his name.

Oh. I forgot 3 questions.

What was the 0.5 that came on the screen? And what was that castle shown after defeating the heartless boss? Also ATW said he put his research inside of Sora? What is that about?

It's basically just saying that if if the first game can be considered "1" then BBS can be considered "0" and thus the story about Aqua in the Realm of Darkness can be considered "0.5"

And what was that castle shown after defeating the heartless boss?
It's Cinderella's Castle of Dreams.

Also ATW said he put his research inside of Sora? What is that about?
It's touched upon more in Re:Coded and KH3D, but basically, as he says in Blank Points, he hid the research about how to "save people" in Sora, hoping he could find it and use it.

Alright thanks. And thanks for trying to hold back spoilers! I wonder why they put Cinderella's castle. It wasn't too important I don't think.

0 = BBS

1 = KH1

Zero point = the starting point in which Aqua's adventure in the Realm of Darkness really starts.

0.5 = denoting these are the events that take place between "0" and "1" (...which will lead into BBS 0.2)

And what was that castle shown after defeating the heartless boss?
Castle of Dreams after it is overrun by the Darkness, destroyed, and brought into the Realm of Darkness where it stays in a state of decay until Sora saves the worlds in KH1.

Also ATW said he put his research inside of Sora? What is that about?
You will find this out in KH3D.

Edit: ninja'd ;A;

It's because Cinderella's world is destroyed between BBS and KH1. Aqua finding it in the Realm of Darkness is meant to clue her in to the fact that the worlds are in danger. It's also put in because it's something she would recognize and thus understand the significance of it.
