To be honest I've never had any trouble keeping up with kingdom hearts's convoluted story. The only thing I don't understand is the alternate reality of KHUX. I can't seem to wrap my mind around it.
So the keyblade war happened in one universe/reality, while the dandelions fled to another universe/reality? Is that it? so doesn't the new universe where the current events take place in now also have another version of MoM, Skuld, Ephemer, foretellers, etc.?
In this universe the war doesn't take place but all the other characters don't exist for some reason, including another version of Skuld, Ephemer, etc.?
If everything I said was correct, which I doubt, then which universe does Sora, MX, and the rest of our numbered titles cast live in? I would think the first one since MX keeps referring to the keyblade war as a thing that happened. But then how are the dandelions relevant again in KHIII If they're not even in this reality? Which we know they are with Marluxia, subject X, etc.
And one last question, wasn't one union leader only supposed to get a copy of the book of prophecies? How come Brain picked up a copy and casually started reading it?
Also, why is Ven so mind numbingly stupid? He's an air head across all the games he has appeared in he makes Sora look like a genius.
