Chapter One: What is Going On Here?
Krixae woke up on a cold surface, face-down. Her head was throbbing and her stomach was impossibly queasy. The blonde opened her eyes to see white, and raised herself up on her arms to get a better look around… and felt her stomach churn. She dashed over to a nearby trashcan and vomited right on the spot. Her hood fell off from over her face and she vomited heavily, her body racking with the force of her spasms.
Luckily, Xirama had woken up just moments before. The black-haired, brown-eyed girl scrambled over to her friend and pulled Krixae's hair from out of her face, to keep her from vomiting any more on it. After the blonde was done, Xirama stood up, helping Krixae up as well.
"It's… the Grey Area?" Xirama gasped.
Krixae wiped her mouth and nose with her sleeve, and then looked behind her. "Korrax! Leixym! Exenri!" She half-way dashed over to the strawberry-haired boy and started shaking him gently.
The boy's violet eyes snapped open, and he jerked up into a sitting position. "What the… where am I?"
"The Grey Area…?" Leixym was now awake.
"It doesn't really look like the Grey Area." Exenri said. The four pairs of eyes turned to her. "Well, there's that huge burned area over there." They followed her finger to see what she was talking about. "I don't remember that."
"You're right, Ex." Leixym said. "Well, I-" They heard footsteps and turned to the noise to see a teenage girl come out, fairly short with long dark brown hair, dark eyes and was dressed in the same coat they were. Her eyes widened.
"Who are you?" She yelled.
Axel, at that moment, was panicking. "Xenri?" He called out. Xenri had come over to his room to sleep in his bed with him, he was sure of it. But when he woke up, she was gone. "Kingdom Hearts, where is she?" He had been passing by the Grey Area when he noticed six figures in black. From the corner of his eye, he noticed Dynilexs, so he walked in.
"Dynilexs, have you seen Xenri?" He asked desperately. "I haven't seen her anywhere, and… who the hell are you five?" As he spoke, he noticed that the five other cloak figures, he didn't recognize. One of them, a young girl shorter than Dynilexs with blonde hair and brown eyes, squeaked as he looked at her and dashed behind another girl, one with dark hair and brown eyes.
"Axel?" One of them, a male with strawberry-colored hair, asked.
"How do you know my name?" Axel gasped.
"You don't know us?" Another person, a blonde with red eyes, asked.
The redhead was about to reply, but at that moment, Destiny showed up, materializing out of nowhere like she usually did.
"All right, people! Let's get this show on the road! Axel, you and Xenri are supposed to wake up in a romantic embrace, remember?"
"Yes," Axel said, "but-"
"Get back to your room! We've got a story to work on. And Dynilexs, you're supposed to be in the kitchen."
"But Destiny," Dynilexs started, only to be cut off by the authoress.
"But what?" She asked, annoyed.
"Who are they?" The young authoress followed Dynilexs's finger to see the five people in Organization coats. Destiny's eyes widened.
"Oh, crap… but how-"
"You know them?" Axel gasped at the same time Korrax gasped, "you know us?"
Destiny stepped closer to the group. "Does the name Hawk mean anything to you?"
"That's the author guy, right?" Dynilexs and Axel flinched when Exenri 'talked'. "He pelts us with shoes when we break the fourth wall."
"Oh, no…" Destiny moaned. "This is bad…"
"Destiny?" Axel asked.
"So, who is she?" Leixym asked.
"The authoress." Dynilexs replied.
"Authoress?" Krixae asked, confused. "But the author's a guy!"
"What universe are you from?" Axel asked sarcastically.
"Not from this one." Destiny moaned, now sitting on the ground with her head between her knees. "And technically, it's dimension."
"What are you talking about?" Axel demanded.
"Well, you know I'm not the only author, right?" Nods. "Well, whenever an author makes a new series, a new canon is formed, and with that, another dimension. And, well… these guys are from another dimension."
"You wrote these guys?"
"Not me, one of my friends, Hawk. These guys are forgotten members of the Organization too. But why are they here?"
At that moment, Xilef was carried in by zombies. Even though his girlfriend had set him on an exercise routine, he still preferred his zombies. "Guys! Luxkls is missing!"
Xemichal stepped out of the darkness from one of the shadows, his eyes wide with alarm and fear. "Clairex isn't here!"
Lexaeus was the next to appear. "Torexaltceh is missing as well."
Kylixant was the last to appear, out of breath. "Where's Khanx?"
Destiny buried her face in her hands. "Oh, no! Oh, no! This can't be happening!"
"What can't?" Kylixant asked.
Destiny stood up. "I need to get in contact with Hawk. Take these guys in for now. You're on your own. I'm sorry." And she dematerialized.
They all stared at where the authoress had been moments before. "Uh… come see the Superior?"
I was panicking. I had heard about this happening before, but how could it happen to me? I quickly traveled through the Corridors of Canons (my personal mode of transportation) and located the Nobodies Forgotten Canon Room. I threw open the door and materialized in the Round Room. But it was a different Round Room than the one I usually was in. And Hawk was there. The author turned to me.
"Destiny? What are you doing here? You never fully materialize into these stories." Sometimes, I'll watch my author-friends' stories unfold, and to do that, I only materialize half-way so no one can see me.
"I know!" I exclaimed. I then noticed that all the chairs were full except for five of them. And they were staring at me. And there were five cloaked figures in the center, all with their hoods up. I looked over at Hawk. "Come into the Corridors. Now." I said, dragging him by the ear into the Corridors.
"This better be important." Hawk said, obviously a bit jittery. "Look, my Organization's having a meeting that I wasn't planning, and I need to know what it's about."
"I know what it's about! I think." I hissed. Hawk just stared at me. I think. He wears a blindfold, so it's hard to tell sometimes.
"What is it then?"
"Look, I went into the Grey Area because some of my characters were out of place, and standing there were five of yours!"
"What do you mean?" Hawk asked.
"Five. Of. The. OCs. In. Your. Story. Suddenly. Appeared. In. Mine." I said, forcing each word out.
"Completely. Hawk. Five figures were standing in the middle of the Round Room. I'm willing to bet those are mine."
"I've heard of it happening before. Long ago, authors would swap characters to get a sense of that canon and those characters. That was voluntary. But I didn't choose for my characters to get swapped. Xenri's in your story, and she's five months pregnant! Axel's already freaking out! When he hears that it's part of a 'weird author thingy' he'll go through the roof!"
"Keep him in control. You're an authoress. It's your job."
I turned away from Hawk, looking instead at the ground. "I know, but… I'm sorry. I'm panicking. I just didn't want this to happen."
"We'll figure something out." He reassured me.
"I suppose…" I said. "I'll make the best of it."
"Good. I need to get back to my characters. You take care of my five, okay?"
"You take care of mine." I said, and we went back to our own canons. And that's how the adventure of our characters being swapped started.
Destiny: Yep. Hawk and I swapped five characters, and now, there's mayhem and chaos. If you want to see what the five from Nobodies Forgotten in their original canon, HawkRider wrote that. In his story of this, five of my characters are there. Review to see what happens next, please!
