As Akarui sailed through space in his ship, he reflected on how he got in this predicament.
One day ago
"What the-what are YOU?" Akarui stammered as he stood face-to-face with a black creature that looked like a shadow. The creature lept at him and he tried to block it from his face. Suddenly, in a flash of light a...a key materialized in his grasp? "What the-" Akarui said in disbelief. "Its like that-that boy...Sora. He had one of these. Then, another appeared in his other hand. This one...unlike the pure black one he held in his other hand, was really long and had a strange bird he'd been told of.."A C-Cho-Chocobo? This is interesting." His clothes had changed as well. Then his whole room exploded in those strange creatures. He fought them off and made it downstairs to see a different type of creature...This one was pure white and looked like a jacket. This enemy was much different than the others. But he took it down like the others. Then, he saw a horrible sight. His mother was on the ground..."Mom? Wake up, Mom" She did not answer. "Mom...please, Wake up." Still, nothing. Akarui fought back tears, but they escaped through his eyes. "Mom?....No." He sobbed. She was not going to wake up. He heard an emergency siren, and the world was evacuating. He saw a huge creature rip through the Radient Garden castle. Whatever was happening....it was coming from there and now Akarui had the ability to stop it. He ran towards the castle, destroying enemies along the way. He finally reached a way to get to the castle. And entered. Greeting him was a evil-looking man who had muscles and a evil-looking blade. He leaped at Akarui, gaining the upper hand easily. Just as he was about to deal a final blow, a man with a long blade stopped him....Akarui passes out.
When he awoke, he was on a ship...all alone.
Whoever this guy was...he was not going to get away with this. Akarui was going to make sure of it...but first...he needed help.
Ezio stalked through the rooftops of Rome, searching for his target. The assassin perched himself on a pole, watching the man he was about to kill. A corrupt man, one who pretended to be a man of God. No matter how corrupt the Roman Catholic Church had become around the time of the Renaissance, there were always worse people. The Templars were everywhere, even in the Church. And the Templars needed to be taken out.
He waited for his prey to pass underneath him, and then the Assassin sprang into action. Ezio was the main Assassin of the order now. He had to show that he was the very best. The Hidden Blades sprang from the gauntlets on his arms, and he drove them into the back of his targets neck. Although he had succeeded in liberating Rome, there would always be more corrupt and cruel people trying to cause damage. Ezio leaned over his fallen victim, and closed his eyes. "Requiescat en pace." the assassin said, translating into "Rest in peace." People around Ezio screamed and fled. They would run away whenever this happened, but Ezio had overheard many people speaking of the assassin as a hero. He would like to stay that way in the people's eyes.
As Ezio began to stand up and leave the scene of the murder, the shadows under a pillar began to swell, taking the shape of a small, bug-like monster. "What?" Ezio said out loud as the creature stumbled over to him. It looked at him with its large, round, yellow eyes. Ezio awkwardly stared back. Without warning, the creature jumped upward, lunging at Ezio's heart. With the speed and agility all assassins possess, Ezio leaned back, then did a back-flip away. Whatever this creature was, it was no friend. Ezio took a throwing knife out and threw it at the aggressor. It exploded in a burst of darkness. But just as Ezio thought he was safe, more began to appear out of thin air. Without missing a beat, Ezio pulled out his crossbow of his back, and fired at one. It dissipated, but the others were still surrounding him. He continued to fire into the crowd until he was out of bolts. At that point, e reached for his sword, and swung it at the group, taking out at least three at a time.
Some brave citizens stood to watch the battle, and one vigilante stepped forward. "We must-a help the assassin! He is Roma's only hope!" he ran forward, and attempted to punch one creature, but the darkness shifted around his fist, appearing completely unharmed. It jumped onto his arm, and crawled up it. It jumped off, and dove into his chest. The man turned pale, as he began to cough. He collapsed to the ground, and a large heart floated out of his body and into the air. Suddenly, darkness overcame the hart, and it became one of the creatures. But it was different from the others. It was taller, had larger claws, and wore some form of helmet. There was also a symbol on its chest, looking like an elongated heart with an X running through it.
Ezio saw this atrocity, and yelled to the people of Rome, "Everyone, get back! Run to your homes where it is safe!" Ezio whistled, and a crossbow shot through the head of one of the creatures. Two more assassins appeared, garbed in similar clothing to Ezio. "We will help you any way we can, Master Ezio!" one said as she sliced one in half with a knife. Ezio moved ac as he fired his hidden gun at them. But more just kept coming. One assassin was struck down, and the other continued fighting. Ezio's sword stabbed a creature, and it disappeared.
But no matter how hard they fought, the creatures just kept coming and coming. They swarmed around the assassins, piling on top of them, until all Ezio could see was darkness. All was lost.
But then, a small light appeared. It grew brighter and brighter until Ezio could see the source of it. In front of him was an elderly man, cloaked in a black robe. He had a grey beard and calm eyes. He seemed like the type of man who had seen his share of conflict throughout life. He and Ezio were floating in a dark void of nothingness. Ezio spoke, "Who are you? Where am I?"
The man continued to look at Ezio with a great deal of intrigue, and finally said, "You. Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Protector of Italy and leader of the Assassin Order. I have saved you."
Ezio replied "You did not answer my questions." The man turned his back to Ezio, and began to speak. "My name is not important. But you may call me the Guardian. And as for where you are, you are in the space between worlds."
Ezio looked at him in confusion. "Space between worlds? What is that supposed to mean?"
The Guardian continued his monologue. "There are multiple plains of existence, called worlds. Though they may be different in appearance of advancement of technology, they were once one. But they were split, and remained separate for millions of years. But the creatures you encountered, called Heartless, disturbed the world order, and created bridges between worlds. But only to cause their destruction..." he solemnly looked downward.
"Destruction... is this what happened to my-- to my world?" Ezio was overwhelmed by this flow of information. This was life changing.
"Yes. Your world, known as "Renaissance Italia" is gone now. The Heartless have devoured its soul, but I have saved you." Ezio's world was gone. Everything he had worked for would amount to nothing. Avenging his family. Working to defeat the Templars. Stopping the Borgia. Liberating Rome. All for nothing. "Me? Why me?"
"You have a part to play in the future of all worlds. A group will assemble in an attempt to defeat the Heartless, and you will be a member. If you succeed, there is a chance that you can bring back your world, and all the people in it that fell to the Heartless." So there was hope. This made Ezio at ease. "Now you must go." the Guardian said as he raised his arm.
Ezio was propelled away, and flew through space, coming to a stop at a small ship containing a boy. "Who are you?" Akurai asked.
Grim waked up and yawned "My life was so much better with out these kids" He looks around and notices Billy is not in his bed "That idiot kid never wakes up before me" Grim gets on his robe and walks downstairs and notices Billy's mom is not making breakfast "Did i wake up late" Then he hears a loud voice "You will not defeat the hos" Grim locked out the window and sees Hos Del Godo in the street killing tons of heartless but hopelessly doomed Grim then notices Jack on the roof opposite Laughing at Hos "You are doomed just let them take your heart" Grim decides to Wait it out and see if he can get Jack at a disadvantage because he thought the heartless were Jacks doing Jack then Throws a Bannana peel at Hos'es feet Distracted Hos's slips And Becomes a huge Heartless Grim notices Jack dissapears All of the sudden Grim Blacks out
But then, a small light appeared. It grew brighter and brighter until Grim could see the source of it. In front of him was an elderly man, cloaked in a black robe. He had a grey beard and calm eyes. He seemed like the type of man who had seen his share of conflict throughout life. He and Grim were floating in a dark void of nothingness. Grim spoke, "Who are you I can tell we are in a alternate plane but which one"
The man continued to look at Grim with a great deal of intrigue, and finally said, "You The Grim Reaper,Messeanger and bringer of death Sadly in this form Degraded to Two be a servant to 2 kids I have saved you but Sadly not your masters ." Not thinking Grim jumps up "Wahoo wait what Happened to them" Guardian shakes his head
Grim replied "You answer me ." The man turned his back to Grim, and began to speak. "My name is not important. But you may call me the Guardian. And as for where you are you are in the space between worlds."
Grim looked at him in confusion. "Space between worlds I Had no clue that was possible?"
The Guardian continued his monologue. "There are multiple plains of existence as you know, But the creatures you encountered, called Heartless, disturbed the world order, and created bridges between worlds. But only to cause their destruction Your world's Purest Heart Hos Del Gado was infected and Your world was Influged in A Sort Of Bomb Of Heartless Energy And the space between the worlds is Fragmented space which neathier belongs to Eaither world" he solemnly looked downward.
"Destruction"¦ is this what happened to my-- to my world?" Ezio was overwhelmed by this flow of information. This was life changing.
"Yes. Your world, known as "Endsville" is gone now. The Heartless have devoured its soul, but I have saved you."Grim's world was gone."Me? Why me?"
"You have a part to play in the future of all worlds. A group will assemble in an attempt to defeat the Heartless, and you will be a member. If you succeed, there is a chance that you can bring back your world, and all the people in it that fell to the Heartless." So there was hope. This made Grim at ease. "Now you must go." the Guardian said as he raised his arm.
Grim was propelled away, and flew through space, coming to a stop at a small ship containing a boy. "Another one!" Akurai asked.
In empty space a ship floats peacefully and rests.
"134, 135, 136..."
A young muscular man begins groaning as he works out. On the other side of the room a man begins sipping his Urahara brand tea. When SHABAAAAANG! A huge hole formed in the hull. Then a young man came in through it. He looked oddly similar with the tea-sipping one.
"Whoa, Dansen! You never mentioned you had a twin!"
Dansen's usual reply is through eye contact, for he lost his voice in a training accident. So he just starred at Jax for a second, blinked twice and twitched ( I don't Jax...). The 'twin' summoned his blade, a keyblade, and began laughing.
"I'm just Nobody..."
And then the battle began. Jax's key has a simple shape, a motorcycle key, and Dansen's was a key made of daggers and a mouth made of a Shuriken.
Jax and Dansen lay defeated in a different world, when a familiar voice beckoned to them.
"Hey, its you!"
In the empty white room, the two began sitting up, their key's dematerialized. A woman with a white robe over her black jacket begins helping them up.
"Oh, hi Sansa!" Jax said under a light laugh. The two have a... history...
"Meet the Guardian. He's here to help us out!"
Before the two can introduce themselves, they appeared in a flash in a Gummi Ship.
Meanwhile, across the multiverse, in a parallel New York City, a ninja-like warrior in black dressed similar to the Amazing Spider-Man strides across the deck of a massive flying ship towards a man with 4 long metal arms and covered in a living red fluid. It's over Octavius!! Prepare to feel the wrath of the Spiderider!! The red monster Spiderider called Octavius rushes towards him on his tentacles. RAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHH DIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spiderider and Monster-Ock begin a duel to the death, with Spiderider teleporting across the Helicarrier, battering Monster-Ock with Hellfire powered punches, kicks, webbing, and breath, followed by cutting into him with sharp jagged swords shaped like Spider legs.After inflicting many wounds upon Octavius, Spiderider hurls a blade shaped like a small spider leg, screaming, GET OVER HERE!!!! pulling Monster-Ock toward him and unleashing a deadly uppercut that lifts him over the side of the Helicarrier, which is already falling toward the ground. spiderider jumps off, and lands on his already airborne hellcycle, driving off debris from the Helicarrier, and lands on the ground moments later, prepared to finish of Octavius, when he sees strange Heart shaped creatures attacking Octavius, causing his Heart to come out of his body and take on a shape similar to the creatures. What are these creatures? Mephisto never said anything about creatres like these!! Drawing his swords, Spiderider rushes at the creatures only to be enveloped in darkness. When the darkness vanishes, Spiderider finds himself on another shipWhere am I?! What happened?! And who are you people?!
Alpha 1st personality Alpha second personality
Alpha stood, overlooking the legions of Heartless.
Tools, nothing more. They blindly throw themselves at the enemy.
Yet they are easily manipulated by a superior mind.
And easily used to crush all opposition in their way.
Weak alone, strong in numbers.
We can use their hordes to take over the world.
No just the world, the universe.
For once I can agree with you.
Shall we begin planning?
Why plan when you can just conquer?
If you run blindly in the enemy would crush us.
No one could stand up to me, why worry?
Hold your tongue you blithering idiot.
Like I care what you think.
And Alpha stood there, arguing with himself for a long time.
Akarui waited on the ship heading for somewhere he did not know, alone until suddenly a man in a white and red suit appeared before his eyes "Who are you?" he asked. Ezio leaped at Akarui, brandishing a blade "Who are you? Do you work for the Templars?" Ezio questioned a puzzled Akarui, who answered "Who?" Ezio explained who he was and what befell his world, how the heartless invaded it and took everything he held dear. "And what of you, boy?" Akurui explained how his mother was killed by a man who controlled the heartless. As the two were talking, another showed up. This was a fearsome skeleton in a black robe. Akarui was fearful of the skeleton, and Ezio drew his blade. "You, undead creature. Go back to the underworld before I send you there" Suddenly, two more people showed up with Keyblades. "Hey, they have got swords like mine" Akauri stated. Grim, Ezio, Akarui, Jax, Dansen, stood and exchanged greetings, some of friendship, others of hatred. Suddenly, a ninja in a black mask appeared "Who goes there? Explain yourselves or face the might of the Spider-rider." Spider-rider looked at the strange individuals. Just as the tensions were about to rise and cause fighting, a man in a black robe appeared. "Hello, I am the Guardian, some of you know me already, some do not. All of you are the survivors of your homeworlds. The one responsible for their destruction is named Kurai, and he has unleashed these creatures called heartless, nobodies, and even creatures he designed himself, called the Soulless. Each of you together hold the key to the fate of all worlds. Good luck" And with that, he vanished in a puff of smoke. "You have arrived at your destination, World: Cybertron. Home of gigantic transforming robots. Kurai is planning on stealing a mystical artifact called the Allspark in order to give the heartless, nobodies, and soulless this ability." the computer beeped. It knew more than they did! "Your mission is to make sure that Kurai, who gave the Decepticons, the evil robots his heartless,nobodies and soulless doesn't get the Allspark. Good luck"
"Hey, where did Sansan go?"
Jax noticed as the group was cruising through the roads inbetween, as they began shooting at the swarming ships.
"What are these cannons? I've never seen cannons shoot at this speed!"
"They're called machine guns, they're basically super-cannons"
"Interesting. Very intriguing."
Grim just sat at the coffee table, sipping tea with Dansen, who also didn't say anything.
"Oh well, she'll turn up soon." He said as he made his way to the ship's Mirage arena. A place where you can fight your enemies without the real danger of it all. Quite amazing how they managed to make a place classified as its own world and fit it into the ship.
"You dealt with his ship yes?"
Dansen's Nobody ran into the room happily. Laughing at the face the three made as they got sucked out into space.
"I'll take that as a yes. Now, go and find out where Sansan got sent Xanden. Then take that sword of hers. Its essential."
Ultra Rabbid turns himself on to see a ship floating over head and foolows it
