Eventually, Oswald's team soon find a way out but not before wishing a farewell and a good luck to Joy, Sadness and Bing-Bong as the three carry on with their own goal to get back to Headquarters.

My ideas (so far) for what might happen in the story of the fanfic saga:

Book I: Journey's Awakening
This might begin with a dream of Oswald's, similar to the first Kingdom Hearts game.

Soon after, Wasteland ends up becoming invaded by mysterious creatures later revealed to be Unversed, it's here that we first see Vanitas, who confronts Oswald. Just as Vanitas prepares to strike the rabbit down, Oswald grabs hold of the figure's Keyblade, eventually obtain his own (known as Starlight, the default Keyblade from Chi/Unchained Chi).Oswald temporarily defeats Vanitas, but the dark figure quickly flees and says that Oswald "won't defeat his master".

Curious, Oswald and Ortensia set out to see what lay beyond their own home, it's through these few chapters that we meet our other main characters: Darkwing, Max, Jose, Panchito & Andre.

Along their first journey together, our heroes disover that the same evil creatures, the Unversed, that attacked Wasteland are reeking havoc across many other worlds. The secret behind this menacing evil force rest within not only Vanitas, but also another man known as Xehanort.

Eventually, Oswald & Friends cross paths into a half-fae Keyblade Master named Exin, and his apprentices Arumon & Ignis. Exin notices that Oswald had equipped a Keyblade of his own and decides to make the lucky rabbit his third apprentice.

Soon, as Oswald & Friends battle back against the Unversed, they confront the Horned King (from Disney's The Black Cauldron) who claims to be controlling the Unversed, and cross blades. However upon the villain's defeat; Oswald learns the truth. In a twist of fate; Xehanort was the true puppetmaster, orchestrating events in order to recreate something known as the X-blade and obtain Kingdom Hearts.

Oswald, Exin & Friends eventually make their way to the Keyblade Graveyard, where the climactic battle of Birth by Sleep takes place. Before our heroes could interfere, an ancient warrior known as Garland (from Final Fantasy I) halts them in their tracks, as the Ten Seekers of Light (Exin, Arumon, Ignis, Oswald, Ortensia, Darkwing, Jose, Panchito, Max & Andre) prepare for a showdown.

However, once they defeat the evil Knight, the damage had already been done, Kingdom Hearts remains hidden once more and the Keyblades Wielders: Xehanort, Eraqus, Terra, Aqua, Vanitas & Ventus are nowhere to be seen.

Both Oswald and Exin decide that they can't return to their homes just yet and they all instead set off to search for Eraqus, Terra, Aqua & Ventus together. Their adventures were just beginning...

Book II: Fragmented Keys
Oswald, Exin & Friends continue their journey in search of lost friends.

It's here we see some more insight into the group of villains known only as the Brotherhood, their motives are shrouded in mystery but their true goal (or so it seems) is obtain the power of Keyblades and Kingdom Hearts itself for themselves.

Oswald & Friends might, at one point, visit Radiant Garden and briefly meet a mysterious person who claims to be Xehanort (whom Oswald doubts). Later, Radiant Garden ends up being taken over by new creatures later revealed to be Heartless, as Exin, Arumon & Ignis sacrifice themselves to save Oswald & Friends (Xemnas & "Ansem" might make a cameo somewhere here).

This should end with Kasai falling into a seemingly long coma.

Book III: Lost Memories
The Organisation XIII arc (Set during Kingdom Hearts):
Wasteland becomes under attack once again. Oswald & Friends discover that new mysterious creatures known as the Nobodies are reeking havoc across many worlds. The secrets within these menacing creatures rest with a group of individuals known as Organisation XIII.

Oswald & Friends battle back against the Nobodies and each member of Organisation XIII. They soon confront Queen Grimhilde, who claims to be the Leader of the Organisation. However upon her defeat, Oswald & Friends learn the truth. In a twist of fate, Xemnas is the true leader of Org XIII, and even offers Oswald the role of thirteen members. Oswald's tempted but ultimately refuses as he's fully reunited with his friends to settle the score once and for all.

In the end, Xemnas is temporaily defeated but the damage's already done.

Their adventures continue...

The Realm of Memory arc (Set during Chain of Memories):

A few more key points are established here, including the enigmatic creatures known as Heartless.

After temporarily defeating Xemnas at the conclusion of the Organisation XIII arc, Oswald & Friends continue to find a way back home. Their journey takes them to the Realm of Memory, where an unseen figure (this particular voice turns out to be Xemnas') ominously claims that they'll find many secrets on the path ahead. Misinterpreting the voice's message, the team set off into the Realm to continue their journey.

Meanwhile, the Brotherhood from Fragmented Keys return in an attempt to reawaken their master, Kasai. But first, they plan to defeat Oswald; to do this, they use the powers of an eerie black coat-donning figure named Kagos.

In an odd twist, we discover that the voice that warned Oswald and his friends wasn't Xemnas', but actually going by the name of "Shade".

The Hollow Bastion arc (Set during 358/2 Days):

This may provide some insight into the background/machinations of the Brotherhood of Chaos. This might also be when Oswald & Friends actually battle the Heartless for the first time.

The Brotherhood of Chaos arc (Set during Kingdom Hearts II):
With the mysterious guidance of "Shade", Oswald and Friends fight their way past Heartless only to discover that the threat of the Brotherhood (now more properly known as the Brotherhood of Chaos), led by a reawakened Kasai, are returning once more. So it's up to our heroes to stop them once again.

Two thirds through, they also meet a Samurai Nobody that chooses not to fight them as expected, but instead with them, whom they name "Nowon" (pronounced as 'no-one').

Later on, Shade & Nowon are revealed to be the respective Heartless & Nobody of Master Exin. With their help, the heroes track down the Brotherhood's base in the Empty Nation. While there, Shade and Nowon sacrifice themselves to help Oswald move on forward, and they finally confront Kasai once again atop his castle. They manage to defeat him again and send him to another deep sleep.

Afterwards, our heroes return to Wasteland at last. After this happy return, Oswald discovers a letter revealed to be from Master Exin, the writings of which were to be revealed soon.

Book IV: Trial by Flame
The Seven Guardians arc (Set during Dream Drop Distance):
Kasai should return as main antagonist.

Oswald & Friends might team up with Kairi in this (who was seperated from Sora & Riku).

Early on, Exin, Arumon & Ignis might return to their complete forms

The Thirteen Seekers arc (Set during Kingdom Hearts III):
As this should end concurrently with KHIII, this one should end with Oswald writing a series of letters, chroniclising the events he went through, to Master Yen Sid.

Book V: Heart of Chaos
As this begins after the end of Xehanort/Dark Seeker Saga, this one might focus less on Oswald and more on Sora and his own friends.
Xion might be renamed to 'Nio'.
Roxas and Namine might sacrifice themselves to save Sora, Kairi, and friends.
In the final battle against Master Kasai and the Brotherhood of Chaos, Sora might take on a 'Roxas Form'.
