[DISCUSSION/THEORY] The 20 Pieces of the X-blade.

We still don't have a valid answer of what really happened between the 20 pieces of the X-blade that got shattered long ago. In fact, the X-blade that we saw in BBS and KH3 are just man-made or artificial.

All Master Xehanort did is to create his OWN X-blade without using the REAL pieces of the X-blade. He created his own 13 Darknesses by using Organization 13 while the Princesses of Heart were supposed to be used as 7 Lights if the 7 Guardians of Light didn't show up or complete their numbers. How can we compare the X-blade that Master Xehanort created and the X-blade that coexists a long time ago? Are there two different X-blades? Who knows. However, if we analyzed what Master Xehanort said in DDD.
"In ancient times, people believed that light was a gift from an unseen land by the name of Kingdom Hearts. But Kingdom Hearts was safeguarded by its counterpart, the X-blade. Warriors vied for that precious light, thus beginning the "Keyblade War." The violent clash shattered the X-blade into twenty pieces—seven of light, and thirteen of darkness. And the only real Kingdom Hearts was swallowed by the darkness, never to surface again."
So if we can analyze of what MX said in DDD. The X-blade was used as a counterpart of Kingdom Hearts. It acted as a protector. It is also the original or the real X-blade than what MX created did. However, since many people wanted to use the power of Kingdom Hearts for their own selfish needs they have to use the X-blade in order to gain dominance and power. The war started and many people died for the X-blade until someone finally wielded it, but the X-blade got shattered into 20 Pieces—seven of light, and thirteen of darkness. Shattering the X-blade also means losing Kingdom Hearts, the source of all light.

Now the question here is, what happened to 7 light and 13 dark pieces of the X-blade? People keep saying that the 7 light pieces became the 7 Princesses of Heart but after analyzing what Yen Sid to Mickey in DDD.

Yensid: "The Keyblade Wars of yore plunged the true Kingdom Hearts into darkness, and the X-blade was shattered. But the light still shining in the hearts of children rebuilt the world that we know today. And the light from the broken X-blade was then divided into seven, to protect the number of pure hearts in the world."
"Seven pure lights. They're...the princesses of heart."
"Indeed. Those seven pure hearts form the very source of all light in the world. If they are lost, the world will again give way to shadow. Thus, even if we deliberately avoid finding our seven lights to avert another Keyblade War, Xehanort will still target the seven princesses in order to forge the X-blade."
Now according to what Yen Sid said the world was rebuilt by the children (possibly the Dandelions from KHUX). But the only thing that confuses me is "the light from the broken X-blade was then divided into seven, to protect the number of pure hearts in the world." Are you saying that those broken pieces of the X-blade have been protecting people with hearts of pure light? And I think the number of pure hearts in the world are the Princesses of Heart and also ordinary people with a heart of pure light.

Maybe having a heart of pure light can be used as an advantage to become a piece of the X-blade or for something else. In KH1, Maleficent wanted to use the 7 Princesses of Heart to summon the Final Keyhole. In KH3, Xehanort wants to use the 7 Guardians of Light and the 7 Princesses of Heart for backup plan as the 7 light pieces for his OWN X-blade. Even though the X-blade that we saw in KH3 is not the REAL one because it's artificial or man-made by using the 7 Guardians of Light and 13 Seekers of Darkness, but it can still use and summon the power of Kingdom Hearts.

Maybe the 7 broken light pieces of the Original X-blade that existed long ago became their own being. I mean if we have being name Darkness and there are 13 of them. Do you think it would make sense if there's a being called Light, and there's 7 of them?

So in conclusion. What if, The 7 light pieces of the X-blade became the 7 Willful Lights and they possessed physical forms back then? Similar to the 13 Willful Darknesses who also possesses physical forms back then and I think the 13 Willful Darknesses are the 13 Dark pieces of the X-blade. Each of these shattered pieces has gained access into people's hearts. 7 who are aligned with the light, and 13 who are aligned with the darkness. The 7 Willful Lights are the ones who are protecting the number of pure hearts in the world just like Yen Sid said. While the 13 Willful Darknesses are the ones who are infecting different worlds with darkness.

I can already imagine the war between 7 Willful Lights and 13 Willful Darknesses is also the same war that the Master of Masters participated in when he was a boy.
