Prepare yourself, the end is now.


Cul-De-Sac

It was raining.

Garforge could only understand only so much as to what was going on. He stared upward, at their world. It was truly broken, smashed apart, and hearts were fleeting from the streets and into the centriptal void that folded the moving pieces around its gravity.

"Just, what happened..."

-flashback-

They were prophets originally. All of them were seen is prosperous in their own right. Two of them, were deans for the school that were rarely ever seen by anyone. Was it mere coincidence? The factions, they were full of children, and the offspring of generations; several before them had undergone leadership and a commitment to upholding their own sentiments of pride be it for themselves or for their ancestors.

To think a conversation with Reforge and Coraleye that morning, would've lead to this? Garforge thought, as he sat at the table. The church was a marvel within itself and everyone that was apart of it helped to maintain its glory and valor. Daemus seated on his right, and Svether on his left. Down the way was Kyoko as well as Renn, and a few other followers.

The first to enter shockingly was Coraleye. Followed behind him, Ulmara his right arm. Avalenn and Cerzi weren't far behind, along with Xarce, Solipher and a good number of VO's followers. Garforge eyed them all one by one, the roughness at times became a little suffocating. Cult's indivuals weren't placeable and outcast, vagrants were tough and brooding.

Finally Reforge arrived at the front with his usual confidence, a pariah as Daemus once inferred. Behind him Erebos their speed demon, and FLLFFL their enigma. In line shortly behind, Riko as well as Sebastian and their lingering followers. With this in place they'd all entered, and took a seat, the more prominent members sat and the idles(npcs) stood at the sides. Reforge at the very end of the table and Coraleye sat at the middle. Garforge was rather serious for a change, he folded his hands together and he looked straight at his brother, and then at Coraleye.

"Friends, Family, Rivals. We're all of those, and we've been this way for years. We aren't in school for another three months. I figured it was time for us to stretch our legs and collaborate for the time being. This door behind me--" Garforge stopped raising his hand over his head without turning.
"Its been said to be the heart of our very world. In the past, not I, not Reforge, and not Coraleye have been able to open its doors. Myths that we've all read, said something amazing lies beyond it, while others say only despair awaits us. As children, faction remnants, keybladers. We just won't take lay our curiousity to rest. We have to know what is what for ourselves."

"You make it sound like we can just open the damn door." Coraleye's smarmy tongue rattled.

"We've tried, meh, if we can't then we can't. I'd still like to try, you already know bro."

Garforge's head tilted as he held Loviembre in his left hand and Hitsun in his right. He spun around, whipping the door with a radiating beam of light. No keyhole in sight, it smashed against the door only to break apart at the seems. He squinted, and sighed, "Sometimes we're really unsure of what our ancestors did to place a lock like this on our home. Maybe they wanted it to say closed."

Footsteps could be heard from the distance. Eyes quickly turning as three hooded figures began to walk in. Through the visage of two of the hoods, Svether looked. Standing up whispering to Garforge, "hey, aren't two of those guys the deans of CDSKA?"

The air felt different as they each stumbled in, forming a line. The crowd seemed to part like the crevice of a door slowly opening. Garforge gripped his fist, as they walked past him as if he were invisible. One, resting his hand on the door, as the others observed. The kids themselves a little confused, but two wrapped up whispers to outwardly make a.

"Can we help you??" Reforge quickly jumped all the way from the other side of the room and crashed landing on the table, proginoskess floating from his left hand.

"We invite ourselves to meetings now? I didn't think adults were bigger assholes than me. Seriously." Coraleye also stood up walked towards the head of the table.

They were silent. Yet spoke all at the same time. "You desire to be connected. So this door will open, with no catalyst...he'll do nicely." they pointed at Reforge.

Garforge raising his arm to bar the direction. "Leave. Now."his grip tightened around Loviembre. One of his eyes perpetuated a teal color, unmasking his heterochromia.

"Expand your horizons, see the true nature of your world...Open."

Upon uttering their final words, the doors were rung upon. Acting as a vaccum for even them, as darkness flooded from its open maw, it sucked in the sanctions of the very chapel. As the children present could only hold on for so long, eventually one by one if not in greater numbers did they tread beyond the heart of their world. What restraints that were put in place, had been lifted, yet weakened for the time being they were.​

-end flashback-

Upon the soil they now stood. There was a single door, in getting up on their legs this beach was the only thing they had left. Flying through door itself felt strange, as Garforge held his head for a time, getting this massive headache he stared at the door in the mean time. Turning around, to gape and check on everyone else, he took the time.

"Is everyone alright?" he said directed at everyone, though this could be seen as a rhetorical question considering what just happened. He scratched his head, and sighed as he'd an orange in his palm and strangely enough smiled, even in this current turmoil.

"Is everyone alright?"

Renn bounced right up to his feet since he was on his back. After a quick stretch of his arms he checked his being for any signs of injury. Nothing, except for a little sand on the back of his shirt. He had a little crick in his neck and a slight concussion, meaning he must've hit his head when they landed. "I'm okay... I have a slight concussion but not much else."

But he also started thinking about what happened after the door opened...

Many people holding on to dear life... He couldn't recall much because there were so many chaotic details. He thought he saw the 'perps' disappear what looked like to be dark portals.

"Perfectly okay, thank you for your concern....Aahh.." Solipher responded to Garforge immediately and sat himself up from the sand, his long light azure hair lightly covered in sand. Brushing it off from the back, he found himself a little closer to the door than most. In panic he tried to root himself to the floor but it was futile, the suction was too powerful, and no one got away from it. Pity. Looking around for his cap, he found it close to his leg and he grabbed it, gently shaking it to free it of sand, and placed it back on his head securely. Getting to his feet, he brushed off his pants and sweater before taking a look around. Plenty of people were swept in here. He spotted the tan-colored sweetheart Kyoko, as well as Avalenn and Cerzi from far off. Each of them beautiful ..but unfortunately for them...

There was only one Solipher for them to share.

Now his concern was which to romance first. Avalenn was more of a dominatrix type and while he hoped he could get a loving girlfriend who also kept a hold on her man, she would likely put him in a choke hold, rather than a hold. Out of the three he immediately noticed, she was last on his list. Cerzi was a good part of the Vagrants but probably wouldn't notice his advances. The request to bear his children may be overlooked. Solipher liked to flatter and impress when he could yet Dual C. while incredibly sexy, didn't really give him responses he liked.

Kyoko, a girl from the Cult, he had never attempted to woo, but now was his chance. "Garforge, naturally everyone will demand some kind of explanation as to where we are, I'll leave the making of theories to you." Where they were now. What they were pulled into. Some of these questions were clear, others weren't. While he could put his mind into this, he really just didn't see why he bothered. Everyone would want to know details, and want all answers handed to them. The leaders couldn't promise them that they knew everything. Leadership was a pain in the butt, but someone had to do it. Luckily it wasn't him. Solipher respected Garforge more than his own leader, and would look to him to help guide all these confused souls.

"We saw what happened ..I suppose its really a matter.."
Solipher looked across the beach at more of the unconscious kids. Some still unconscious, others in the process of getting up. "Of why it happened ..or how.For now, let's get most of these children up and we'll be free to get to the bottom of it all." He smiled warmly at Garforge and traversed down the beach, moving towards Cerzi and kneeling down beside her. Placing a hand on her shoulder, he gently shook her in order to get her awake. "..Miss Dual C., this is no time to be resting. Get up now..come on." seeing her body shudder, he stood up and walked past her once she was awake. Coming by A.V Solipher looked down at her for a moment before clapping his hand together, generating a compact call of easily breakable ice in the form of a sphere. About the size of your palm, he hung it over A.V and dropped it, letting it gently break on her and coating her face with quickly melting ice. The shivering jolt should be enough to awake her with a start. "Wakey wakey A.V~~" he quickly stepped over her and moved over to that sexy brown-skinned delight just ahead.

Setting himself down beside her, he slipped his left arm under her back and lifted her up, using his hand to support her neck. "Kyoko, wake up.." his free right hand was clutching her own idle right hand tightly, looking determined. "I need you to wake up." She smelled amazing. If this was anywhere but here, preferrably in a dark space with no eyes on him, well, he'd probably hire someone to toss rose petals from above them to make the scene even more romance-esque. Her skin was soft and her face was gorgeous. Her body, well, his reaction would be a lot more physical if he was weak-willed, but he found Kyoko cute. He found a lot of these girls cute actually ...but..

There was just one of him.

Sorry ladies ..he just can't rob the innocence from every girl from the CDS..

..But he could try~

Hearing a voice calling out to her Kyoko opened her eyes. She was being held up by someone, looking up she saw who it was, a boy from one of the other groups. "Solipher?..." She moaned, straining her eyes to focus. Solipher was a nice enough guy from what she could tell, unlike most in his group he seemed to dislike fighting. She only wished others felt the same way. "Thank you." She said, thanking him for helping her. Looking around she was confused by her location. They were on a beach, with no recognizable landmarks in sight. Looking behind her she saw the massive door, whether or not it was the same as the one in the church she did not know.

However it was when she looked up that she let out a startled gasp. "Is that... Our world?" She said, her voice shaky and full of fear. There was a world above them, and it was falling apart. Lost hearts flew about, a beautiful yet frighting sight. "If that's our home, then where are we!?" She cried out, her eyes shooting over to the massive door. "Isn't that door meant to go to the heart of a world? Why did opening it cause this?" Kyoko was afraid, not only for herself but for the safety of everyone else. She had to calm herself down, freaking out wouldn't help anything. Taking a few breaths she forced a smile, being gloomy wouldn't help. "Solipher, do you know any healing spells, there may be others that are hurt."

"Gah...what the hell,"

That was completely unexpected to say the least. But really what was anyone expecting in the first place? All fun and games? Not exactly. But not exactly a desolate beach either. Daemus drew his face from the sand and coughed up a bit of dust. Sitting up on his knees, Daemus examined his surroundings. Many have already gained their consciousness. Garforge, Renn and Solipher all in and counted for. And of course Solipher in the business of helping women get back on their feet. Daemus could only help but to chuckle even in the midst of the situation

"Is everyone alright?"

Daemus let out a yawn and got up to a standing position leaning on his toes to stretch every muscle in his body. "Yeah I guess I'm cool. Just gotta massive ringing in my head though." he said while emptying the sand out of his shoes. Be that as it may, they still had to figure out what this place place had to offer and what was to follow suit. Some say that the lack of knowledge ultimately leads to fear. And despite his actions and speech, Daemus was admittedly afraid. Being oblivious to anything past the sands of the beach and the calm waters of the ocean.

Will curiosity ultimately kill the cat? Or will the hearts of the keyblade wielders persevere overcome the void of the unknown?

Riko hit the ground running immediately summoning a blade of light to his hand what the bonk happened here where is he? Thought Riko rushing over to look for his “fearless leader” within the sandy dunes and the scattered members of the cul-de-sac still reviving. Riko saw Reforge just standing there in the sand dashing over there in a matter of seconds he brushed the pink highlights from his eyes as he smiled at his leader for the occasion of reforge seemingly looked okay.


Riko Kneeled beside Reforge his sword still in hand in the beaches rough sand he looked over at his boss

“yo boss you alright man?”

Riko asked concerned over his leader and friend scanning him for any wounds before standing up and scanning the surrounding for the rest of his friends.


Riko spotted Sebastian near the others and waved him over to his location along with any of the other zeal members to rendezvous at their boss's location so they could make sure they were all okay and all here.

Creating bonds to save our world and bring peace
~Coraleye~
"Look at that view. Atleast the horizon is pretty." Coraleye sarcastically said as he turned his head toward Garforge.

Coral's green eyes were like daggers as they rested upon Gar's eyes. Sliding his glasses off his face, Coraleye began wiping off the lenses with his shirt. He looked down toward the ground and closed his eyes before sighing. He didn't know where he was but, he could only speculate as to where all the kids had landed. Sliding his glasses back on his face, the leader of the Vagrants scanned over all the others either standing or still knocked down upon the sand. He finally rested upon the door that was very much out of place. Suddenly his mind forcefully began to run through his memories in search of where he had seen this before. He knew right away. It was a dream that he had once in awhile. Was there a good explanation as to why he had this dream? No.

Deciding to ignore it in the meantime, Coraleye voice rung out to Gar, "So who the hell were the deans and why did they bring us here? I mean it's such a nice spot with the sunny sky, nice breeze, palm trees, and not to mention the view of the ocean." The sarcasm was pouring out by the bucket but, the asshole was yet to make an appearance. "Hey Vagrants, get yourselves together and regroup by me. Make sure no one is injured. Don't wanna get slowed down if anything happens." Coraleye outloud with a hand on his hip. He might have sounded like an asshole but, it was his way of showing affection for his gang of misfits. Whatever was happening here, Coraleye didn't like the look of it.

~Ulmara~
As she awakened, Ulmara was quick to stand up. She was worried about everyone including Zeal's Call and The Cult of Creative Kids. She didn't care if there had been much violence in the past but, right now they were all together in a place they had no understanding off. Taking a step forward, her heart set the path and it was to check on Ryuhou first. Not many knew it besides Coral, A.V., and Ref but, she had a crush on the guy. Despite her great personality, she wasn't one to truly pursue what she wanted. Walking over to him, she looked him over to make sure he was okay before saying "Get up Ryuhou. I know your okay. I've seen you get blasted by Bastion before so, I assume that your fine." She did a cute luagh before moving a few strands of hair otu of her face.

It was then that Coraleye made the call to his Vagrants. She looked around to make sure everyone heard him. Her eyes though settled upon Solipher and Kyoko talking. She couldn't believe he was already trying his "moves" on Kyoko but, he had never made a move on her yet. "And he cound't check on us girls first." Ulmara stated outloud before increasing the range of her voice to Solipher, "Hey Solipher! Get your ass over here. You heard Coraleye." It seemed as though Ulmara was slightly ticked off but within reason because Soplipher was checking on some dumb girl before even attempting to see if his own comrade's were okay first. GEtting that boy off her mind, she looked back down at Ryuhou with a big smile. Even with the stuff going on, her perky smile was still able to shine through.

~Sebastion~

Upon reaching the beach through the door, Sebastion was laying on the beach. He didn't move nor did he want to move. He honestly didn't kno what was going on but, his genius level mind had already come up with twenty different possible reasons of why they were here and where. If anyone asked though, he would simply say he didn't know. He was too lazy to want to figure out this mess so, if anyone came up to him then they wouldn't find an unconcious man but, a sleeping lazy ass. Just to peak his curiousty, he looked up to see if anyone was up and looking at him. Riko was waving toward him and other but, Sebastion instantly ignored them. Because he was still a nice guy, Sebastion decided to be helpful before his big sleep.

""O brilliant angels, grant us your favor... Nurse!" Sebastion said before snapping his fingers. it tooks a few seconds before magic swelled around around the area, forming into medic angels. There were five in total and they began running around the entire group of children. With each step, healing magic was release upon all the children of the Cul de sac. It was his moderate level healing spell which exhausted him somewhat after already being weakened from the recent ordeal. Closing his eyes, Sebastion went right into naptime.

Ah so many questions from the little sweetheart. While he could form a response for her easily enough, he did not feel the need to do something like that. Her string of questions was predictable and it was a little annoying hearing her ask so many at once considering not many others knew much more than she did, but he kept his opinions to himself and waited until she finished and smiled at him, forcibly, in order to ask if he could cure anyone. Help make snow cones, sure, but his healing abilities were weak and were only for himself. Shaking his head at her, he gripped her hand tighter and hugged her closer. "I'm afraid I don't Kyoko, but as long as you're with me, I promise you won't get hurt. I'll give you all the stars in the sky and bring you the moon! Just promise you'll stand with me and .." Solipher leaned in, allowing his lips to brush against her soft cheek. "..Would you perhaps bear my ch-"

"Hey Solipher! Get your ass over here. You heard Coraleye."

Pulling back, Solipher raised an eyebrow to Ulmaya, Ulmira ..whatever her name was, and released Kyoko's hand for a moment before idly waving at her. "I did hear him, doesn't mean I'll come immediately." he was a person, not a dog, and he'd come when he saw himself fit to. Anyway now that dismissing her was over, Solipher grabbed Kyoko's hand again and repeated his action of brushing his lips against her cheek again. "As I was saying before I was interrupted ..Kyoko ..would you do me the honor of bearing my children?" He appeared entirely genuine with this request and hoped to get an adorable reaction out of her.

Kyoko sighed as Solipher shook his head. "Well that's okay, I'm sure there are others wi- ehh!?" She was caught off guard as he pulled her closer to him.

"I'm afraid I don't Kyoko, but as long as you're with me, I promise you won't get hurt. I'll give you all the stars in the sky and bring you the moon! Just promise you'll stand with me and .."

He was awfully close, his lips brushing up against her. Now this was getting out there, was he confessing his love to her? Kyoko wasn't sure how to react to this, thankfully someone calling out to him gave her time to think.... 'Maybe he's joking? I mean we don't really know each other that well, and this IS a high stress scenario. Ohhh, that makes sense, he's just trying to lighten the mood, what a kidder. Kyoko giggled at Solipher. "You're funny, almost had me going there for a minute." She let out a soft laugh, glad she had figured it out.

"As I was saying before I was interrupted ..Kyoko ..would you do me the honor of bearing my children?"

There his lips were, at her cheek again. If he was acting then he should be nominated for an Oscar for this performance. "Umm, I.. You see..." Kyoko stumbled her words, her eyes shifting nervously as she struggled to find the right words. "That seems a bit much, I mean I'd rather get to know a guy first before talking about stuff like that. Like maybe go out on a few dates or something first, but really..." Kyoko looked around, noticing a healing spell that was circling everyone, helping those who were hurt. "I'm flattered, but is this really the best time?"

Reforge had been feeling as if his entire world was falling apart for some time but all of the ending days of school had taken those thoughts and made his mind a stockpiled array of concern and joy. "Screw all of this. I seriously think we are all better off dead." Of course Ref didn't literally mean what he was saying but in light of the ridiculous situation they were all now in the middle of, there was next to nothing that made sense. If it weren't for Coralye and Far being there Reforge was sure he'd be going completely insane already.

"I'm fine...and thank you for asking but I'm much more concerned with what exactly is going on here." Reforge was seriously annoyed and he hated when Riko called him boss man. His eyes scanned the area but all he saw was the scenery reminiscent of the paradise beach he used to vacation on as an even younger child. He didn't see Erebos or Mithos anywhere but suspected that they were more than likely close by and out of danger. It seemed only moments before everyone had just been trying to have some kind of serious chat and then...then...

"Those guys. The deans. Sure Coralye pointed it out already but there has to be more to it. I mean the idea alone that those two just OPENED the door is a problem. Ugh." As much as Ref pondered his mind didn't even want to grasp the meaning behind what had been said and as he stared up into the sky and the wind blew over the sand he shivered,not hesitating to rub both arms across himself in a shared feeling a dread.

For now nobody was even harmed and if they were Sebastian's spell had already taken care of it.Reforge walked away from those in his faction,not ignoring them persay but feeling that all of their hearts were affecting him as usual. He looked up to Garforge upon reaching hi, "Bro?? Something has gone terribly wrong. Can't you feel it?? I know you and Coralye both do. The question is...just what and how soon we will find out."

Zakinen opened his eyes to see...sand? And there was something in his mouth...more sand. After Zakinen quickly coughed out all of the stuff and stood up, he took a quick turn to observe the new setting before hearing Coraleye.

"Hey Vagrants, get yourselves together and regroup by me. Make sure no one is injured. Don't wanna get slowed down if anything happens."

After brushing himself off and doing quick stretch, Zakinen made his way over to Coraleye, reveiwing what happened just moments before. At least what Zakinen hoped was only moments before instead of a day or two. So it was a meeting about that one door nobody could open, simple enough. Then two people form the school decided to pop in, open the door, and apparently ran off seeing as they aren't here anymore. They have some explaining to do. If we ever see them again, that is. Zakinen paused and thought about home. Not exactly safe, but at least Zakinen knew what to do there. Here, he could just watch the sky as the world he knew was being torn apart. Home...or at least what's left of it. I might not ever get to go there ever again. It was boring, yeah, but it was where I grew up.

Zakinen sighed as he continued to watch home being changed, probally forever until it got completely destroyed. I can only imagine how the others might feel. I think we can all deal with it pretty well, but some of us... Shoving the thought out of his head, Zakinen quickly summoned and dismissed Gone With the Wind, glad he still had at least that souvenir from the simple part of his life. A life he might never be able to live again.

FLLFFL sighed. "Yeah. All around fine here." he replied to Garforge, standing to the side of Reforge, surprisingly looking doward at their petite faction leader. He held his keyblade with the very same name over his shoulder as he always did. His mannerisms went unchanged and FLLFFL was more than sure things would only seem to stem and warp out of their hands.

"Reforge. We still hold a unified front, the new 'culdesac', I imagine your decision of survival is unchanged?" he said to him, with his wisdom knowing the obvious turn about.

---

Avalenn shook, gripping her fist she kicked herself forward into spine jump. Planting herself up in the slow. She rubbed her face, it was cold, as the ice had melted. Atop this, it was already raining. With a sneeze she let out, she rubbed her nose. 'Solipher...is he trying to get me sick?' she thought.

She looked over as Cerzi sat up, her positioning was more than even she could seem to sit 'within comfortable range of.' Her drowziness and morningful expression meshed with her often oblivious nature seemed just, frustratingly adorable. And the focus on her body, while it wasn't the time for thoughts of envy, she shook her first and forged a demonic and wicked aspiration above her head and steam generated off her in the rain as, Seven flickered past her and tackled Garforge.

"Overzealous little runt!" she harked, though motioned over to Cerzi. "Hey C, you aren't hurt are you?"

"Hmm? Hey Ava, its so good to see you. Just what happened, where are we? There was a door, three men, and little Ref-kun jumping across the table spinning his keyblade and...uhh--"

"Hey, we've all got enough to think about. At least you remember most of what happened Dual C. For the time being, I'm going to assume those three are coming up with a plan. I don't like the idea of collaborating with our rivals...but some circumstances we just can't help." she finished with a sigh.

Cerzi seemed to understand, enough, but more to the point as she took in the surroundings, she finally looked up. The Cul-De-Sac from the distance just seemed to be in pieces. The rain seemed to assist in the idea of wanting to cry, that this wasn't a hallucination. A sudden sense of despondent despair seemed to fall over her as she leaned her head back, thinking of her parents. Some of them were so calm, but the reality was it felt as if things were ending before they even moved on. She held her arms and leaned forward, falling into Avalenn's chest.

"I miss my parents too. Theres too much happening right now to really worry myself sick about them, I want to stay alive as long as possible so I can rendezvous with them. You should do the same, don't be a cry baby Cerzi." Avalenn was sincere, if not for her rough nature, she'd shed just a tad more compassion, but being real and yet remaining positive she was a wholesome friend as well as person.

---

Garforge nodded in acknowledgement of Solipher's response. Renn hopped back to it as if it were his destiny to continue, Garforge admired this drive on his part. He actually laughed mildly upon Daemus input, yet in all seriousness it was quite the fall. The loud thud, Garforge could remember himself when he hit the water and not the sand. He was actually still wet in between the water, and the rain the seemed to impede upon their heads left and right.

SFX:
WOOSH!

A loud thud, as he hit the water a second time. In came the swoop of his beloved sidekick, Svether. "Hey, I'm glad your alright too Seven. Now could you...let go, your gonna crush my ribcage man." Garforge said fondly, his eyes squinted and he was flattered, though disgruntled. Svether's grip was locked in, as if he couldn't appear to bring himself to grasp that Garforge's bones were cracking beneath his grip.

"Hey, hey, relax alright. We're gonna need your sensing and recon abilities Sev. Try to relax, if you're missing your parents, we all are...try to focus on living long enough to see them. Don't worry more than you need to. Okay?" Garforge patted him on the head, and his grip loosened extensive, he still buried his head into the faction leader's scarf.

He'd removed it and stood up, looking over at Coraleye and then Reforge. In his hand, he kept Seven's as he dried his eyes with his leader's scarf, before returning it, still damp. Garforge sighed, as the layer of shells around him, seemed to unsettle and push the moisture out of his clothing, and it literally looked like he was steaming as he detonated the shells all at once and disintegrated the moisture, as if he were a smoke and steam engine.

"So who the hell were the deans and why did they bring us here? I mean it's such a nice spot with the sunny sky, nice breeze, palm trees, and not to mention the view of the ocean."

"I'd like to just take a guess and say the deans were the predecessors to us. I guess they wanted to quell our curiosity, and so they opened the door for us only for us to be dropped off in...a portable hell. This island that we're on, when we learned about borders between worlds in class, didn't you ever notice this was off the coast? Even in a boat or a raft we could never get to it? I used to think those were myths, but its safe to assume everything that happened in our history is accurate. You think we rally everyone before looking for a way out of here, to restore our home?"

"Bro?? Something has gone terribly wrong. Can't you feel it?? I know you and Coralye both do. The question is...just what and how soon we will find out."

Garforge held a really firm dispositon. "We've got to be on our toes. For now any way. It also feels like, while we were already midst light for so long. That light got weaker...? Or is it just my imagination, maybe I'm thinking to much." he said, then tapping his head. Quick role call, Coral, Ref?"

He threw his hand up, on his bracelets the surrounding keychains dangled. Faction leaders could always find their comrades through a sub-skill known as lightstream. Usually embedded inside an item that symbolized their group, in Garforge's case, an orange. He uttered a few names, "Svether, Daemus, Kyoko, Renn, Akkiko, Rika and Taro."

This would not only get their attention, it was how he assembled them when they were each several ways out of the way and across town. "Lets pull it in everyone."

---WAIT TILL MY NEXT POST TO ACKNOWLEDGE THIS INTRO---

Children as always had to learn how to crawl before they could walk. Everyone underwent one trial before they venture into any unknown atmosphere. There was a sphere of darkness, it perpetuated high above the sky. Midst their conversation, it became even more apparent that it was sentient. The tiny island rattled with children, keybladers, none a novice normally, though they'd find they would have to think much faster than they'd initially realize.

Things were arranged for the children. Trials, in a sense it felt as if they were inside of a game, but how crazy does that sound? Poppy-cock, though this sphere that hovered over them would soon converge and scatter and send them to a common location.

The Heart Station.

It is a destination that rest within the very pits of one's own heart manifested by the subconscious in as a dreamscape. What develops and envelops them inside the Heart Station has a direct impact on the select that tread there. Questionable intentions, remarkable character, and unrequited courage noticeably. Each having to conquer one thing exposed now, that was long to be forgotten. With the broken light, their shadows have been exposed, extending from each and everyone of the deviants their shadows that normally seemed non-existent feigned behind them, luring the mass of dark space fluxed into a sphere even closer and closer.

Crashing down, their intervals of consciousness stripped. Landing upon the starting points, isolated from all but themselves, their hearts formed staircases to their elevated indecision. To which they all must walk, before they can determine what they must do. Resolving now, is the only means to survive.

Of course being projected onto a beach without explanation was a bizarre occurrence. But seeing all three faction leaders in the same venue all having the same goal was just...unnatural. Daemus panned the surroundings again this time surveying everyone that was present. There were more people coming to than he first got wind of. And to top it all off, he had never seen them in the light they had been in now. Some were downright frightened to say the least. A mutual feeling overcame Daemus as he exerted loud sigh and turned toward the ocean and then the faction leaders. "Never thought this would be how I imagined my first vacation. Sucked into a door and spat up on a beach, sounds perfect right?" He complained to himself.

It was at that moment that Dameus overheard Garforge talk about the enigma of bordering worlds. The mesh point from one zone to another. Daemus tried to think to himself but it was futile. Who would have thought falling asleep during lectures would actually put him in a life threatening situation. Even though classes covered most of what the students learned, the rare moments where he did in fact read were the times he disregarded all legends as myth. They didn't seem probable at all especially the thought of a never ending ocean.

"Svether, Daemus, Kyoko, Renn, Akkiko, Rika and Taro."


"Present" He said as he threw his hand lazily in the air. It was at that time where he noticed that Seven had been bawling his eyes out. It wasn't the fact he had never seen him crying before, it was just that more often than not, Seven always seemed to be the most ambitious out of the group.

Kyoko, had been a friend of Dameus ever since he arrived at the CCK. Despite being the same age, she always seemed like that of a big sister. Renn on the other hand, was an unspoken competitor with Daemus. He did not favor Renn being the kind to blow him off for other events but having someone like that in the group seemed to be a positive influence seeing that he was one of the oldest. And then there is Akiko. Not only one of Daemus's close friends but one of his favorite people in general. One of the few he could pull a prank on and get away with it now and face consequences later. As far as Daemus and Rika are concerned, their personalities conflict every once in a while but either way its for the better of the group. Given her sternness, Daemus loves to get under her skin just because. Finally Taro. Daemus and Taro never really got to know each other before this instance. He never was one to convey that much information and as a result, he never really cared to find out anything about Taro.

There were others, but this is who were at the scene here and now. Essentially, Daemus was one of the last to join the CCK yet he seemed eager to get to know everyone on a personal level just to get a sense of who he would be working with. As far as he knew, he didn't have any enemies within the CCK. But outside of the faction was a different story. In the instance now, he would have to disregard that grudge and just cope with their company and find out what to do from here on out.

"Svether, Daemus, Kyoko, Renn, Akkiko, Rika and Taro."

"Here." he had resigned to looking at what was left of their home. He saw dozens of hearts rising out of the split ruins.
I just hope that...
He had in his hand a small grey orb. He let the magic go and turned back towards Garforge.

"Lets pull it in everyone."
Renn gave an assertive nod. "We have...to help." He had this dull ache in his mind like he knew that many of the keybladers here were meant to bring their world back together. He knew they would have to culminate into some sort of alliance if they were to save Cul-de-sac.

"I'm flattered, but is this really the best time?"

"My dear Kyoko, in a place as strange as this, there is no telling what tragedy will befall us ..I only wanted to tell you in case I ..perish." Solipher said in a dramatic tone, his eyes growing misty and his body practically releasing drama at the same time. He definitely deserved an award for this performance. Still, Kyoko gave him what he hoped for, an adorable reaction, and he was content with that. Picking her in in a bridal fashion, he sucked air into his nostrils and released it as his blue eyes looked out towards the horizon. The fact it was raining only made the scene that more dramatic.

"As long as I have the strength to move my finger even a little, I will see you back home safe Kyoko ..you have my word." He did not seem intent on letting her go at all, especially when he leaned in and gave her a gentle kiss on the cheek. A squeak, just a little squeak ..or ..or a blush, an intense blush! Come on Kyoko, worth with him here!

"Hey, Romeo, Juliet doesn't seem interesting in bearing any babies ..how about you set her down now?" a voice directly behind Solipher said as a presence he wasn't even aware of before made itself known. He knew who it was, Rika, from the Creative Kids group. While he had little information about her abilities since she never liked to display them in front of potential enemies, but to be so quiet that she'd be behind him just now. He never felt her approach, nor saw her approach. How long was she standing there anyway?

"That's a little grown up talk for someone as young as you, don't you think?"

Solipher smiled and did set Kyoko down before turning to Rika, opening her arms. "Well Rika I didn't know you felt that way, if you were jealous, why not just say so? I would gladly extend my offer to you as well!"

"Not interested in settling down yet, but thank you for knowing how to flatter a girl Sol ..now, go to your group and let me take Kyoko back over to our group." Rika knew how this was going to end. Even as she stood there tapping her foot on the ground, she could predict Solipher's reaction, having had her own share of lusty comments in the past. He's going to continue ...

"But Rika, I think this whole experience demands Kyoko spend a little time under my care-"

Comment on how she needs a man ..

"-and I can guarantee you I'm the kind of guy she needs around!"
Solipher lowered his arms, knowing he wouldn't get that hug. She was adorable while she stood there in her little pouting routine, and he could predict her own reaction.

She's going to hurt me in some form..

Which form should I hurt him in today?

After thinking it over, Rika thought it best not to humor him and instead moved around him, taking Kyoko by the shoulders and walking her towards Garforge. "It'll have to wait, time to be serious Solipher." she called over her shoulder before reuniting both herself and Kyoko with Garforge. Releasing her shoulders, Kyoko got a pat on the back while Rika moved past Garforge and behind him, placing her arms over his shoulders and around his neck. She didn't know if he'd react to it positively or if he'd pay her any mind at all, but this situation did call for him to speak his mind. He was the smartest there is after all. Setting her head beside his, she gently brushed her right cheek against his left.

"Reporting, Garforge~" she whispered in a highly seductive tone of voice, something she had learned to effectively use years ago. If he wanted to be released he could merely tap her arm or something, but it would be a bit of a bummer for her.

I suppose she's right ..I don't know why she hesitated in hurting me but this isn't the time to mess around. As she pushed Kyoko off in a rather comical fashion, Solipher turned to his own group and casually walked over to them wearing his signature tired smile, as if he had just woke up. "Reporting ..leader." he said it pretty dully, as if the term was rather annoying to say. He felt like a dog but, that was the way things were. When the master called, the dog was to come running. Going stray didn't improve the odds for survival at all. He'd try to hit on those in his own group more but, it wasn't the exact same. Ulmara would just use some magic and slap him around a little ..he liked the cuter approach.

From far off, he spotted Rika getting a little close to Garforge and sighed in jealousy. She knew how to use her body and mind fairly well ..if only she was a Vagrant. Things would be much more interesting.

"Solipher.. I can walk you know?.." Kyoko said as he picked her up like a princess in distress. She still couldn't tell just how serious he was, was it really possible for a guy to be this dramatically romantic? He kissed her cheek, causing her to start blushing and rambling her words again. Thankfully Rika entered the scene, Kyoko let out a sigh of relief. If there was anyone that could help her here it was her, she had an imposing confidence that would surely get her out of this. They exchanged a few words, with Solipher offering the same romantic ideas onto her. He was turned down rather bluntly, and Rika ended up walking off with her. "Thanks Rika, I don't know how I would have handled that any longer." She whispered into her ear as they headed over to their faction. She took a quick glance back to Solipher, she imagined his flirting could get tiresome, but he didn't seem like a bad guy. Reaching Garforge and the others Kyoko raised her right hand enthusiastically. "Present!" She said, giggling as Rika wrapped herself around their leader as soon as she could.

"Tough luck once again huh?" Capell suddenly said, placing his right hand on Solipher's shoulder. He had watched the whole scene play out, Solipher had his routine down to an art at this point, and frankly it was amusing to watch. "Don't worry about it man, I'm sure there's a woman for you out there, heck, maybe even one you've 'romanced' already." Capell chuckled, his eyes glued to a book in left hand, which he was reading in spite of the rain. The precipitation was simply falling away from him, as if he had some sort of repulsing pressure around him. He stepped a foot away from Solipher for this very reason, him being that close to people for so long tended to have averse effect on them. Stepping up to their leader Coraleye he closed the book, placing it in his pocket, the rain then allowed to fall upon them as he lowered his power usage. He was prepared to listen to him, however he kept his ears open for anything the two brothers said as well.

One of the last few to regain their consciousness, Anise arose to one of the aberrant sights she had seen in a long while. The sand was a couple degrees lower than what she was used to. Books upon books unscrambled in her memory only to find out that she was more familiar with the area than she previously thought. Being home schooled allowed for much more time reading than anything else. Especially with Reforge being the natural genius that he is, it is not hard to want to keep up with that standard. Going back years and years ago, it was speculated that someone actually broke the dimensions between worlds. Admittedly she believed it. No matter how much she read as a rebuttal against the 'crossing of worlds', she still believed it was possible

Finite Worlds, chapter 13, page 206, paragraph 3: "The portal between worlds have often been speculated as a door without a keyhole. None of us have even so much as laid eyes on this door. And I've began to wonder if it is even exists at all."

Anise had this specific passage stuck in her head. Despite remembering everything she's read since her memory was shattered, this had to be it. No other explanation seemed to fit into the equation other than landing head first onto another world. Amazed, she took in her surroundings immediately. Cold sand, swaying palm trees, jagged rocks and an undisturbed ocean. Everything was here. Her amazement was broken upon seeing Reforge, Garforge and Coraleye conversing with one another. She rubbed the sand from her face just to get a sense if she was seeing straight. Getting up to her feet, Anise brushed off her skirt and began walking toward 'the big three'.

Unfortunately she did not make it to their destination as soon as she wanted. Sebastion, who was passed out on the ground had inadvertently tripped up Anise to the point where she fell back into the sand. She would have laughed if a sudden uneasy feeling overcame her senses. Again she looked around. Nothing. Still, that did not ease her conscious. Anise lightly tapped Sebastion's cheek in order to wake him up sooner. Everyone needed to be able to hold their own now and sleeping was not exactly the way to keep that premise. From the looks of things, the faction with the least amount of members was Zeal's Call. Luckily, quantity never outweighed quality.

"Crap."

That's the most reasonable thing that Reforge could think to say as his head started pounding and he felts the rippling waves of pressure from the sky began to settle upon all whom had originally been inside the chapel. In a place like this the darkened sky was nothing that Reforge worried about but as the pitch of darkness intensified and he looked up, the small globule of darkness started to grow.

"Guys it looks like we are in for a lot of trauma. I can say that as a leader of one of the three factions that there is no way we aren't gonna try and at least help in this situation but I'd prepare yourselves regardless. This is certainly new territory for all of us. Gar?? Coralye?? You guys ready??"

By the end of his few words the sphere was pulsating and bubbling, and the stench of darkness had gotten more extreme than Ref had ever witnessed before. All Ref could picture was the source of light he knew was present in his heart and the bond that he'd built with not only his brother but also Coralye and the others in the factions and more specifically those in his own faction.

There was something missing from the darkness that reforge felt and as the seconds passed and the sphere began to fall out of the sky, automatically Reforge thought to raise his hands up toward the sky and use the light he sustained to reject the darkness and with great satisfaction, the sphere began to slow its descent. "Yes, its working!!!" That small bit of joy was instantly shattered when the sphere pulsated another time and there was a loud roar of darkness.

A tendril of dark matter had snaked down and pierced Reforge's heart. He cried out and staggered backward, clutching his chest and to his horror, watched as the same happened to everybody else. The sphere of darkness must have had its own will and mind as it sought ought everyone separately even as it continued to fall and then crash into the ground, consuming everyone there...

~~~~~

The floor was cold on Ref's back, he could feel the chilled ground even through his clothing and all that was present was darkness, which wasn't all too surprising after what had just recently occurred. Upon opening his eyes, Ref noticed he was on a platform of some sort and it was quite large. He wasn't sure who was on it but some woman with flowing green hair and bright eyes was etched into the surface. "Crap. I don't see anybody at all."

Ref looked up and saw there was a translucent staircase that wound some ways up from the center of the platform. "Looks like I'm going up..."

Shifting through the spaces like only Mist can.
Xarce shakes his head as if to clear up some type of static that refused to disperse. He takes one more look around the area and notices several familiar faces from the group he's in only to let his eyes land briefly on the leader. He quickly averts his eyes to try and escape the infamous sarcasm mixed with a short temper and tries to pinpoint others that he might know of. Several people quickly fill this spot of his mind even as he fights off the final waves of dizziness. It's only then that he notices the healing spell going around that just might have something to do with his mind getting a bit more clear. "Remind me to never do that again, brain." He knows that it's pointless to try and tell himself that since he might end up forgetting it later on.

As a final motion he pats his clothes several times to knock off the dust and anything else that might be resting on them. He has a very simple style so it needs to be kept under check to make sure that it's clean more than a normal person. It's at that moment that he finally realizes the sights that most others have already realized. He gulps as shock consumes his mind briefly before he regains himself. He mentally beats himself into submission to remain calm and looks around. That's when he notices a sharp pain in his chest. It knocks the breath from his lungs and sends him to the ground as he thinks that someone from one of the other groups managed to sneak in some type of attack in all of the confusion.

Everyone watched as the sphere of darkness made its decent upon the beach. It seemed to have just formed out of nothing. That alone was impossible to say the least, but so is being flown through a door only to land on a beach. Everyone looked on as Reforge made an attempt to disrupt the sphere before crashing down onto the kids of the Cul-De-Sac. Unfortunately, the futile attempt only seemed to make the sphere grow in size and from the looks of things, strength as well.

Daemus's eyes were fixated upon the sphere. The image of pure darkness being reflected on his eyes. As the sphere grew ever so closer, sand began to fly in every which direction. It wasn't enough to deter Daemus's vision until he saw Reforge collapse in a matter of mere seconds within his peripheral vision. Shaking his head, Daemus made an attempt to stop the sphere himself. Thrusting both hands forward, his face took on a determined look. It all meant nothing. Not even a single ounce of energy was exerted from the motion. "Dammit...just what is this thing?" His vision drew on Seven, still clinging onto Reforge. In one swift motion, Daemus grabbed his arm in attempt to take him to safety. Not another step was taken as he fell to his knees. His breathing began to hasten while clenching his chest. "Really? I-I feel like...this is the cheapest move in the book," Uttering his last word, Daemus blacked out.

She had never seen darkness in its purest form. Only stories from books peaked her curiosity. Being that darkness was an entity within itself, it's safe to say that this was a force to be reckoned with. Anise, still crouching over Sebastion, was forced to take matters into her own hands. Taking the arm of Sebastion, she tried to move him to a safer place as fast as possible. However, that was not saying much if anything at all. He was just too heavy for her to move at the moment. Again Anise pulled and tugged at him and eventually losing her grip only to fall flat on her back. The sand beneath her began to rumble and eventually disburse into the air. The sphere was getting ever so close. Even the fact that it had simply appeared made it too close for comfort.

Being wrapped up in thought, Anise was struck by the same dark bullet that already claimed three victims. Without a doubt, she could honestly say that it was the first time in a long time where she had felt fear. Her vision became darker and darker as the sphere was almost in tangible distance now. Anise did not know how many people escaped or if any at all, but the fact of the matter was, was that she was scared out of her mind. A single tear was released from her left eye as she too, blacked out.


~~~~

Falling had never taken so long in his life. Daemus opened his eyes only to be surrounded by darkness. Surprisingly, he remained calm. trying to grasp light of the situation, he called out to the night, "Duh, hello?" In turn, he got nothing back. Daemus let out a heavy sigh as the falling began to come to a halt. Seeing this he turned his body to land gently on his feet. The darkness beneath him began to blow away like leaves in the wind. The only light he would see however was a platform. Relatively large in size with a portrait of a vermilion heart surrounded by profiles of the members of the CCK. His head turned one way, revealing darkness for miles on end, and eventually turning the other that had a set of multicolored stairs winding around to a second platform.

"So sketch, but it's the only choice I have at the moment,"


~~~~

The tears finally stopped. Anise was afraid to open her eyes but at the same time her curiosity of what was to be sought out was greater than her fear. In the midst of what was happening, Anise managed to bury her face into her knees. "No one's here...Is this what's beyond the darkness?" She thought to herself. Slowly opening her eyes, the station livened up. Breaking away revealing Anise herself and two keyblades crossing in front of her. "Silence and Lockdown? Just what is going on here?" She hesitantly took a step forward, and then another. She just had to take everything in. None of the books she read ever had anything like this in them. Anise reached the edge and took another step off. A stair appeared under her foot and winded in a downward spiral toward another platform.

"Knew it."
