Points to note (KH - A World Without Sky):
1. As I wrote the story before Re:Mind was announced, the events of the DLC do not take place in this story. This story is simply meant to explain the original secret ending (how & why has only Riku gone to rescue Sora?).
2. The events of this comic take place over several months.
3. Sora saved Kairi in a manner similar to how he saved the others from the Lich during KH3. However, given his power, Exdeath appeared before him to prevent him interfering with the Lich.
4. The battle against the Arch Mage takes place at night. He has cast illusory magic to make it seem like day-time.
5. The events of 4 black & white pages (those featuring Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Riku, Namine, Lea, Xion, Roxas, Terra, Aqua & Ven) occur during Kairi's adventure. The page featuring Sora & Kairi occurs before the events of the comic (showing how he rescued Kairi). The page featuring Kairi, Namine, Isa, Lea, Roxas & Xion occurs during the period where Riku goes to rescue Sora.
6. The Cloud of Darkness was referring to several different things: (a) imbalance between light & darkness due to the defeat of the Xehanorts & Organization XIII (b) Kairi being alive when she is supposed to be dead - thanks to Sora (c) The return of the Foretellers - due to Luxu's actions
7. By becoming full-fledged ninja, Kairi, Namine & Isa unlocked the Ninja Class. The Ninja Class functions similarly to Drive Forms/Command Styles. It grants increased speed & the ability to leave behind after-images (similar to Ghost Drive), but decreases defense.

Before anyone asks ... no I am not continuing the story beyond this page.
I heard Melody of Memory's lovely Dearly Beloved remix, and realized that I wanted this story to have a Dearly Beloved remix, so I commissioned one.
However, I thought that that was too little, so I commissioned one last page for the story (there will also be 2 simple sketches - So you could consider this the 'Final Mix')

Dearly Beloved - A World Without Sky Remix:

Wow! Thank you for writing and commissioning all this art! That was a great read! I particularly love the idea for Kairi's solar surfer with the star shard, training with Kim Possible, and using the oracle from Aladdin 3 to locate Sora (and Carbuncle popping up!). The ending was upsetting for Kairi, though :( Going through all this journey, watching couples get together, and not being allowed to go save Sora herself --that's KH levels kind of cruel lol

it's no problem - thank you for your interest
i was just dissatisfied with vanilla KH3 (especially with how kairi was handled), so i came up with a story ...
it was fun to write, and it was cool to work with all these amazing artists
