Door to Redemption - Ch 03
Chapter Three Help from the Dark
Morgan was still ranting about the broken Star Shard under her breath as she followed the boy's out of the room. Somehow Long got the feeling this girl was a bit of a perfectionist. Or maybe that Shard was just really important. Heck if he knew, Morgan didn't bother to explain what she was doing, and from what he understood the Star Shard was her means of transportation. So she was pretty much stuck with them until they found a way out of the castle.
On the next floor they were greeted by a plan white room. "Why do you shun the darkness," the same voice whispered in Long's ear. The question wasn't directed at him, but something told him the owner of the voice wanted him to hear it anyway.
"Come on," Riku scoffed. "I know you heard me-every word I said to Maleficent."
"Darkness is your weapon. It is time you learned you must accept it."
"What do you mean?"
"Stop resisting. Accept the darkness. You have no choice "
Suddenly standing in front o

Chapter Two Is This Home?
"This is " Long began, arching his brow.
"Hollow Bastion," Riku finished. "What're we doing here?"
"What you see is not real," Long heard someone whisper in his ear. The voice sounded familiar. "It's the world of your memory."
"Our memory?" Riku questioned, looking around for the source of the voice.
Oswald looked from Riku to Long, somewhat confused. "The things you remember from Maleficent's castle became a card, and that made this world. You've seen everything here before, haven't you?"
"Well I would think I should," Long muttered, folding his arm's over his chest. "I've been here for nine years after all."
"So what now," Riku asked. "Are we supposed to learn something? Maybe meet someone?"
"You would meet the people in your memories," the voice continued. "Ordinarily."
"What dose that mean?" Riku asked, looking up at the sky. When he received no answer he shouted, "Hey! I'm asking you a question!"
"Riku, let's just go," said Long. "I doubt this
Door to Redemption - Ch 01
Letting my broken wings flap
I'll show them everything disappearing
One day, I'll meet my end
Up until the final bell stops tolling out right now
Right now, I can't be cured by words
That are only gentle
I'm just going to give my everything
The battle's going on until the end of time
Chapter One The White Room
"The Heartless?!" Donald and Goofy cried.
"It won't budge!" Kuroi hissed.
"Don't give up!" Riku urged, grabbing the door from the opposite side. He was trying to pull in the door Sora and Tian were pushing in.
"All together now," Long urged, helping Donald, Goofy, and Kuroi.
Long could see his sisters surprised to see him behind the door, as well as Riku in Tian's case. But now wasn't the time to dwell on this, time was running out.
"Donald, Goofy," King Mickey said, turning to face his life-long friends. "Thank you."
As the door closed Riku looked back at Sora and said, just loud enough for only Sora to hear, "Take care
Chained Door - Ch 17
Chapter Seventeen Chain of Memories
Upon running out of the room Donald and Goofy pushed the doors shut. Whipping out their Keyblades, Sora and Tian locked the door. The door was replaced by a white wall. No one's going in, and no one's coming out. For now, all was fine in this castle. "You okay," Sora began turning around. "Riku?"
"Not Riku," the replica said forcefully. "I'm a fake. I can't remember why I was created, or where or when All that's inside of me, is the time with you and Namine. But I know those memories what makes me, me They're not real."
"Gee," Goofy said, turning to Namine and Mitsuki. "Could either of you use your magic to put Riku back to normal?"
"I might-" Namine began.
"It's alright," Riku said suddenly. "I'll deal."
With that, the replica turned around to head off. "Hold on," Tian began. "Does it really if someone created you? You had your own essence right?"
"You're you," Sora added. "Nobody else. You have your own heart inside of you.

Chapter Sixteen The Graceful Assassin
"You have some nerve to show your treasonous face around here," Marluxia said. "Some nerve in deeded."
"Treasonous?" Axel asked in a mock surprise. "I don't know what you could possibly be talking about."
Marluxia slowly turned around to face the pyro. "Why let them go? If it weren't for you needless meddling we could have turned the Keyblade masters to come an serve us."
"Oh, right! You're big plan! You use Namine to rewrite Sora and Tian's memories piece by little piece. Which would turn them into her total puppets. Then, using the three of them together, you and Larxene overthrow the Organization. But, if that failed, there was Mitsuki as Plan B. Without an essence they're no better than a mindless puppet, waiting for the string's to be pulled. Am I right? Seems to me you are the traitor, Marluxia."
"Since when were you suspicious of us?"
"Do either one of us have the heart to believe anyone?"
"So you only eliminated Vexen,

Chapter Fifteen Castle Oblivion
"You didn't have to hit me so hard!" Sora shouted. He stood up, but kept a hand over his throbbing nose.
"I think I did," replied Tian.
"Ah! I think you broke it!"
"Men are such babies," Tian muttered.
Kuroi and Kazehi had a bit of a difficult time pulling Tian off Sora. It was only when she got a good punch in the nose did Tian come off. "You must be Namine," Goofy said, greeting Namine, and Mitsuki, both seated on the floor beside the Replica. "And you must be Mitsuki. It's good to meet ya. We're friends of Sora and Tian's. My name is-"
"You're Goofy," Namine finished with a slight smile. She made a slight gesture to Donald. "And you're Donald.
"And you," Mitsuki added. "You're Kuroi. And you're ."
"I'm Kazehi," girl finished.
"But," Donald began. "How did you know that?"
"Congratulations, you two," Goofy said, happily, glancing over at the Keyblade wielders. "You finally found your friends. I'm so happy for ya!
"Gee," Jiminy sai
Chained Door - Ch 14
Chapter Fourteen The Savage Nymph
"I said stop!" Namine shouted.
Much to Sora's surprise, Riku suddenly jerked forward. Riku fell to his knees with his arm's hanging at his sides, and finally fell to the floor.
Sora was confused at heck. First he found Namine, who said things that didn't make much sense. Then he got the feeling that the person most special to him wasn't Namine, but he couldn't remember who. And finally, Riku came back looking for a fight, and now this. "Riku " Sora said, a little uneasy. He got no response from Riku. "Riku? Riku?! What did you do? What did you do to him?!"
"Broke his heart," Larxene said, suddenly appearing in the room. "I'd say more like she smashed it, really."
"Smashed his heart? Then what's gonna What's gonna happen to Riku?"
Larxene threw her head back and laughed. "Oh, you're so much fun to watch," she went on. "If it's Riku you're worried about, then don't. Because Riku was never really here."
"What do you me

Chapter Thirteen What Makes You, You
"This is just like them!" Donald shouted.
"Those two never listen to reason, they just go at it," Kuroi agreed, crossing his arm's over his chest. "So much for being calm about all of this."
"What should we do?" asked Goofy. "If we don't go after them soon "
"Who needs Sora?!" Donald and Kuroi shouted in unison.
The door behind them suddenly opened and the brown haired girl stepped through. Her eye's were suddenly filled with hope. "Those kids," she said, walking up to the group. "A-Are they here?"
"'Fraid you just missed them," said Goofy. "We kinda hit a little rough patch."
She sighed. "I keep missing them."
"I'd hate to take it out of context," Kuroi said slowly. "But that kind of implied that you were following us."
"Yes, I have," the girl nodded. "I do believe I have every right to follow whoever enters my home without my consent."
"Your home?" questioned Donald.
"Yep. Been living here for years. It's only recently did the people i

Chapter Twelve Which Charm is Which?
Axel appeared in their little group headquarters, where Marluxia and Larxene were waiting for him. "Nice work," Larxene praised. "I say good riddance to that blabbermouth."
"Marluxia," Axel began. "You used Vexen to test Sora and Tian's strength, didn't you?"
"Not just them," said Larxene. "Your's too. We weren't sure if you actually had it in your bones to take out a fellow member. Well, guess what, you did. It's time to join up. Taking over the Organization will be like child's play with the three of us."
"So that's where Tian and Sora come in," Axel concluded.
"Of course. They want to see Namine and Mitsuki, so why not give them what they want?"
"Aren't you happy," Marluxia said, turning to face Mitsuki and Namine. Mitsuki was moved across the room, and now sat on the floor behind Namine. "The time is near for you to meet the heroes that you've been longing for."
"I'm glad," Namine said softly, as Larxene walked up to the girls.
